Mike Rew has a particularly low opinion of egg heads, petards, blowhards and thos sort of people that if you say to them "I've got an Elephant" reply "Well I've got a box to keep one in". Been in IT for 20 years and don't it just show. Resident Viz Profanisaurus expert and translator of Cockney Rhyming slang. For instance did you know that blowing a Raspberry comes from the Cockney for Fart? (Raspberry tart). Also do you know what a bacon sandwich is a nickname for?

300lb hairy man???Name: Sofia Harlow
Height: 5'4"
Weight: 112lbs
Hometown: All over CA and ID
Finishing maneuver:  Lentil/soybean fart in the face
Born: 1968
Occupation: Attorney. Moonlighting as a pre-op transgender Courtesan

Sofia is the little female dog that could.  Born small and premature, runty and cunty, she fought the good fight and survived.  She died at age 2 but came back to life, to the sheer horror of all around.  She has been fighting ever since. Sofia is the chick in AMR with the big dreams, the big attitude, and the big poopies.  She shits 10-inch poopies 4 times a day. Sofia has been a drummer since age 11 (did her time in marching bands), and a Rush fan since age 13.  She is the only person in her family to never go to jail. Sofia used to give $100 hand jobs in Hollywood.  Her hands were THAT good.  The mesmerized cops just let her go.  Against all odds, Sofia successfully crammed 7 years of college into 17, and now she is a well-respected Officer of the Court in two states in the U.S.A.  Sofia grew up very sadly on welfare, but is now a happy white collar rat caught up in the white collar rat race, appearing frequently in Federal Court to defend her Big Bank clients' rights to foreclose on the house and home of poor defenseless bankrupts. Beware.  She is a mite, but she can bite.  She is currently very smoten by the deceased Al Kyder.  Oh what a lovely soul, that just desires to make unknown people laugh.  That was Al.  Where is my pocket rocket?

Everything you never wanted to know about Doppelbock:

Doppelbock is a senior-level engineer in the aerospace industry. He lives in the Dayton, OH area with his wife and 3 kids. He has two masters degrees and a partially completed PhD. He is a novice beer snob with a penchant for abbey-styles. He might be a closet libertarian. He will eat just about anything if it’s battered and deep-fried.

Matt is the quiet, boring, Canadian reg.  Posting to AMR since 1997, reading since 1996.  The original anagrammatist, and claims to have kicked off the package parodies.  Works in Toronto, rarely posts about Rush.  At best, an Archivist. At worst, encourages PM.

Finishing Maneuver: The Righteous Exorgasmic Holy Thrust

Al is deceased at the time of this bio. However some think God has more work left for him on earth. What can be said of Al? He's a real renaissance man. Poet and preacher, astronaut and engineer, teacher, volunteer, saviour of western civilazation and master woodturner. Al's mission was always to enlighten and entertain. But get in his way, and you probably got that ass smote.
His turn ons are: Women who know scripture. Especially ones who know where to find the naughty bits.
His turn offs are: Clown pant wearing bastards and their one-tittied wives.

Finishing Maneuver: Fold, wipe, flush.

A systems-accounting geek, Max has been a Rush fan since high school in the late seventies.  Starting with his first show in Baton Rouge in September 1980, Max has seen "The Boyz" eighteen times through the end of 2004.  Although he's been active in the newsgroup since early 1997, Max's "fame" in AMR arises from two incidents from 2003 and 2004, the infamous "package" and "Mystic Mullet" episodes.  Max claims the title of President of AMR because no one else wanted it, and the title of Emperor was bestowed upon him by after the outing of "Mystic Mullet."

Finishing Maneuver: Finished? I'm just getting started.

Lee is continuing to push the envelope to see how much he can get inked before he becomes what his wife has labeled "TattooMan".  He has yet to derive any powers from said transition but he has seen the rage level in his better half increase in direct proportion to the size and quantity of his inkings.  He hopes to be married to RageWoman any day now. Lee derives his moniker from his narpets (they made him the 3rd) and his favorite novel (Hyperion).

Belgium, man, BELGIUM!Name: Laurel
Height: 173cm
Weight: 69kg
Age: 32
Hometown: Various
Finishing Maneuver: Oscillation with a Horizontal Thrust

Former massage therapist turned Cabinet Maker/Carpenter. Mother, Lover, Poet and sometimes too passionate about her family, friends and causes. Show me, don't tell me, eh?! Speaking of Rush, Laurel isn't a 'fan' of anybody, doesn't drool at the possibility of meeting those any bodies and prefers the term 'appreciator', 'cause let's face it, you have to appreciate anyone who is very good at what they do, and Alex Lifeson, Geddy Lee and Neil Peart are very good at what they do. Living on the Continent for the last five and a half years, she is the mistress of waffles, friets and amazingly her ass hasn't expanded in correlation with these skill acquirements. One of the svelte mistresses of AMR, she has no qualms about giving out a well deserved spanking; speciality plays require the participation of DJ in tag-team mud-wrestling manoeuvres.

Flagg is AMR's local thespian and an expert on all things carnal.  Originally coming here for the chicks, he stayed for the poop humor.  When not being anally probed by baboons, he enjoys reading S. King, cooking, shacking up with his girl and beating his meat with a monkey wrench.

Finishing Maneuver: Paul “Mr. Wonderful” Orndorff piledriver or making breakfast

The Professor has been in AMR since sometime in 1996 and was on TNMS before that.  When he’s not pining over young sexy female Rush fans online (or fantasizing about Iwerks and Flagg), he has a real job educating the leaders of tomorrow.  Or at least trying.  You can see his real life here: .  He’s even written a scholarly article about Rush, which you can find here: .  Unlike the rest of AMR, he’s actually internationally-known for things not having to do with poop, masturbation, or paranoid delusions about Steven Spielberg.  His AMR claim to fame is that he has been at opening night for each of the last three tours. How he became a responsible adult remains a mystery to him and those around him.

Gray hair , own teeth, four eyed twat who hates BoG's and spels wores than Canaidians.

Long time  fan whose first exposure to Rush was on the "B" side of an old TDK D90 tape, I was interested in the "A" side (Aerosmith , Toys In The Attic") not the wierd trip out hippy shit on the otherside. Sence prevailed and 2112 is still my favourate but now my copies don't go "Attention all planets of the  CLUDUNK, CLUDUNK, CLUDUNK  have assumed control, We have assumed control"!

Height: 6'0"
Age: 36
Hometown: Mpls/St. Paul, MN
Finishing Move:  Giggity-giggity-giggity-Gung -Pao Awl-Rigghhht!!

Cat-Pan-Daddy is a happily non-professional musician who refuses to sully his pasttime by making it his work.  With very good relative (near-absolute) pitch and an ear that can pick apart dense structures, he also likes sequencing and composing as well as improv.  For humor, he turns to Family Guy, Futurama, That 70's Show, Monty Python and Whose Line Is It Anyway. Oh, and he is mated to a gamer grrrl who was a concert violinist before arthritis developed from excessive and perfectionistic practicing, which was a real wakeup call.  (Ref. "Losing It", /Signals/, RUSH.)  Also attempts to grok history and current events but doesn't really have the hang of filtering the information overload that this endeavor creates.  Quiet and soft spoken, but don't get him mad, he goes to pieces so fast that everything gets sliced to ribbons by the shrapnel.  Use as directed, some assembly required.  Sit Ubu sit. Good dog.

Finishing Maneuver:  Telling your mother, “Sure, I’ll call you tomorrow”.

Dan Iwerks is, by day, a mild-mannered IT geek living with his wife and two children in lovely suburban Eagan, Minnesota but, by night, he becomes the Milkman of Justice, dispensing luscious, creamy vengeance across the Midwestern stretches of this vast, calcium-richened land.  He samples a wide variety of fine beers and, given a chance, would probably be willing to mock the size, odor, or general quality of your genitalia.  He has been on since early 1994 and all he has to show for it is people giggling at the words "penis" and "Fecal Tarzan".  In some small (and exceedingly pathetic way), he feels this is an accomplishment.  He's probably taller than you and if not, well, you're probably just showing off.

Finishing Maneuver: Swallow

Brief Synopsis: Im a bored lonely computer programmer, looking for Mr or Mrs Geek to share in my passion for eating, drinking, sleeping, farting, fidgeting and Rush. This isn't a dating forum, but you gotta try everywhere you can when you're as desperate as me. I don't post in AMR much unless something takes my fancy, unfortunately most things go over my head and I can never argue my position because I don't care passionately about stuff. Unless its food or drink. Big kid at heart, I can usually be seen mooching around Solihull doing my Peter Pan or Harry Potter impressions pretending that my pencil is my wand. Current Favourite Phrase: Albus Dumbledore is the greatest sorcerer in the world. How I got into Rush: Through Silver Sun... They did a cover of Xanadu...bought A Farewell to Kings in Fopp in Leamington Spa in 2000. Bought everyone of their albums since! Boom shanka.

I've run out of caption ideas, as you can tell from the last one Name:  Mike in Texas
Age: 38
Height:  6 ft.
Weight:  210 lbs.
Hometown:  San Antonio
Finishing Maneuver: Shock Treatment Backbreaker - on the rocks, no salt

Mike in Texas, a usually infrequent poster on AMR (though more prolific during the summer), is a high school English teacher and has been a Rush fan since Moving Pictures.  He is usually an avid hiker, mountain biker, hoopster, jogger and birder, though his time is now spent in an endless chase after his toddler and preschooler.  His favorite authors at the moment include Albert Camus, Samuel Beckett, T.S. Eliot and E. O. Wilson. He has many favorite films, including (but not limited to) The Seventh Seal, Through a Glass Darkly (Harriet Andersson, mmmm), L'Aventura, La Dolce Vida, Network, Blade Runner, and, of course, Monty Python and the Holy Grail. He enjoys classical guitar, vihuela and lute music, particularly Andrew York compositions (Sunday Morning Overcast, Faire, Sunburst) and older works by Dowland, Luis Milan, Da Milano, Sor, and Tarrega.  He also hacks his way on a guitar at times.  His favorite drinks include top-shelf margaritas (on the rocks, no salt) and Beefeater and tonic (lime squeeze), but he also enjoys a warming Old Foghorn Barleywine Ale by the fire (or chimenea outside) in winter, or a crisp hefe-weizen (with lemon) in the warmer months - though he has been known to settle for MGD when desperate or parched.

Finishing Manoeuvre: Double Scotch with a large haggis

In real life BaldiePete is supposedly a software engineer developing test software for the Typhoon fighter's radar. An expert in crappy British food, Pete is the answer to the question "who ate all the pies?". Slightly fanatical about single malt Scotch whisky, he is contempuous of Neil Peart's whisky drinking habits. ICE !! The man's a heathen. He would recommend 18 year old Highland Park as the Scotch to take if you only have one drink left before you die.

Brief synopsis: Neurotic young manhattanite, Java programmer/consultant, ex funk drummer and metal guitarist, commercial aviation enthusiast, amateur chef.  Jason has been into Rush since 8th grade when he started playing drums, got a transcription of "Where's My Thing" in the latest Modern Drummer and had never seen so many notes on the page.  Upon heading off to college, he spent his entire freshman year engrossed in TNMS, but when that ceased to exist he started frequenting AMR.  Daily lurker, and constant poster around album or tour time.  Favorite bands: Rush, Tool, Radiohead, Porcupine Tree, DT, Sarah Mclachlan (yeah give me break, a guy can like something besides prog...).

The pay is better, along with the hours and I don’t have to spend time in the Middle East. I try to emulate Geddy on the bass but have a long way to go. Favorite bands other than Rush include Magnum, Pink Cream 69 and Thunder.

Tending to spend a large portion of his days rocking ye olde ass off, trying to save ahead for a computer sciences degree, and drumming for a few very smalltime garage bands, Mike mostly lurks on AMR and rarely has much to say. Rush has been his favorite band since he was 11 and the slot for such is in no position to be rotated.
