They call me the Working Man, I guess that’s what I am.

I just wrote a new piece for the website. It felt really good.

It’s funny, I sat down to write a quick 5 minute piece, a news item to link the trailer for the Rush documentary that’s coming out next month.  5 minutes turned into a full on article, which turned into me fighting to not turn it into a blog post. I’m not sure how I feel about that.

I haven’t felt this inspired to write a piece in ages.  That was great.  The topic, however, is one that holds deep, intense, and personal meaning for me.  Rush is a band that has touched and shaped my life in more ways than even I can explain.  And I was there.  Rush played a part in my getting married to Tara.  She told that story beautifully on the old website, I’ll have to get her to repost it on the new version.  For me, it’s not quite a spiritual thing, but then again, it almost is.

And as I’m writing this piece, it’s not even a review, it’s just a promo for a documentary that I think people should see, I’m having a hard time deciding where the line is between my blog, which is “me”, and the website, which is Magnificent Bastard.  How personal can I go there?  Does it even matter?  I don’t know.  These are the things I think about.  For hours at a time.  But that’s not the real issue.  It was Rush.  I realized I didn’t want to have this discussion on the website, which I see as more of a public forum.

Point in fact- I typically never discuss Rush with anyone I don’t respect.

Which is not to say that if I’ve never discussed Rush with you I don’t respect you.  Actually, if you think about it, I’m discussing Rush with you right now.  If indeed I never discuss Rush with anyone I don’t respect, and I am indeed discussing Rush with you at this very moment, then logically I respect you.  That’s a classic syllogism.

I spent the evening listening to a random shuffle of a play-list consisting of Rush’s first 10 studio albums.  I wrote a nice piece for the website.  I pondered deep philosophical questions of no import whatsoever.  It was a good night.
