Red Barchetta

I just scored 9 out of 10 on this Rush Trivia Quiz on CBC. My official result was:
"You scored 9 out of 10.

The Spirit of Radio was about a radio station. When Rush writes The Spirit of Internet Quizzes it will be about you."

What can I say? They're the greatest band to ever pick up a guitar.

I'll have to check that out.

BTW, those Rogue photos were for you man. I couldn't help myself. If I would've been thinking, I woulda held my fist up like on the Rogue logo. You should put that on the list of "things to do before I die". The fermentation runoff smelled absolutely dreamy. I was tempted to ask if they'd make me "warehouse security guard for life". I'd take payment in beer.

If you ever get the chance, buy their Brutal Bitter IPA. I hate IPAs, but it was incredible!

And, Rogue has a public house here in Portland...

I got a very sucky 3/10. But, I did get the one about "Tom Sawyer" and I got the one about the Aqua Teen Hunger Force movie. I've seen a few episodes and knew immediately that's the only title listed that would fit the answer. I also got lucky on #5.

If I hadn't second guessed myself on a couple, I'd probably got 5/10. However, I don't even know these facts about my favorite bands (I'm not that kind of guy). I do love Rush's music.

Sorry bro, I gotta go with Pink Floyd as the greatest band to ever pick up a guitar.

I had a clever comment to put Shan's opinion of Floyd in the proper perspetive, but then I pressed the wrong button and didn't realize it until now.

I'm not usually a band-loyalty kind of person, but I like Rush. I actually knew very few of the answers to that quiz, but was able to deduce most of them from what little I know about Rush.

Multiple choice is a blessing to the lazy.

A blessing, indeed! Long live the slackers of Rogue Nation!

I'm in the “Rush = unlistenably pretentious heavy metal” camp.

I scored 2 out of 10, which is, on average, what I would have received by guessing randomly, which I was most of the time.
