Rush - Full Concert - 12/10/76 - Capitol Theatre (OFFICIAL)Rush - Full Concert Recorded Live: 12/10/1976 - Capitol Theatre (Passaic, NJ) More Rush at Music Vault: Subscribe to Music Vault: Setlist: 0:00:00 - Bastille Day 0:04:41 - Anthem 0:09:18 - Lakeside Park 0:13:26 - 2112 0:29:34 - Fly By Night / In The Mood Personnel: Geddy Lee - bass, vocals Alex Lifeson - guitar, vocals Neil Peart - Drums Summary: Few rock bands that emerged in the 1970s have achieved career longevity until the present day. One of the notable exceptions is the hard rockin' Canadian trio Rush. The group's 1974 self-titled debut and the follow-up album Fly By Night, issued the following year, created a buzz among heavy rock aficionados, but little else. The third album, Caress Of Steel, found the band beginning to create a hard-edged form of progressive rock (quite unlike its British progressive-rock counterpart) that confused as many fans as it gained. The breakthrough would finally occur upon the release of Rush's fourth album, 2112 in March of 1976. An ambitious concept album that explored a dystopian future, with lyrics influenced by the philosophical writings of Ayn Rand, 2112 found Rush striking a new balance between heavy and progressive rock that established all three members as highly accomplished instrumentalists. Arguably the band's signature album, 2112 would be lambasted by critics, yet gained the band a rabid global following that remains strong to the present day. Presented here is Rush recorded live at The Capitol Theatre in Passaic, NJ at the tail end of 1976, just nine months after the release of 2112. Performing choice selections from their first four albums, this concert provides a nice overview of the group's early years, just as they were beginning to break big. From the raging opener of "Bastille Day" to the encore pairing of "Fly By Night" and "In The Mood," this performance is a prime example of these three musicians vacillating between the heavy metal leanings of their first two albums and the more ambitious material from Caress Of Steel and 2112. Also featured here are strong renditions of "Anthem," another Ayn Rand influenced composition from their second album and the autobiographical "Lakeside Park" from their third, conveying a slightly softer side to the group. However, the centerpiece of this performance is unquestionably the epic title track from 2112. Clocking in at a full 16 minutes, here the band is clearly shifting into more complex compositions and the more eclectic sci-fi lyrical leanings that would capture the imaginations of millions. It was performances like this that won Rush such a dedicated following, which continues to pack arenas every time Rush takes to the road.

With an 8-track tape memory system and onboard computers that are thousands of times weaker than the phone in your pocket, the two spacecraft sent back an immense amount of imagery and information about the four gas giants, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. But NASA knew that after the planetary tour was complete, the Voyagers would remain on a trajectory toward interstellar space, having gained enough velocity from Jupiter's gravity to eventually escape the grasp of the sun. Since they will orbit the Milky Way for the foreseeable future, the Voyagers should carry a message from their maker, NASA scientists decided. The Voyager team tapped famous astronomer and science popularizer Carl Sagan to compose that message. Sagan's committee chose a copper phonograph LP as their medium, and over the course of six weeks they produced the "Golden Record": a collection of sounds and images that will probably outlast all human artifacts on Earth. /// is a news website that helps you cut through the noise and understand what's really driving the events in the headlines.

Rush- Live in Northampton, 3/11/1975Well well well, what a find we have here! A brand new Rush recording from the Fly By Night Tour! I personally recieved this on Christmas (one hell of a Christmas present) from a user named "kabblammachunk", who got it from a local radio station (WSAN) clearing out old stuff. So this upload goes out to them for making this possible! This captures Rush's performance at the Roxy Theater in Northampton, Pennsylvania, and it is a very significant recording. It's only the third (after Cleveland 4/7 and Toronto 6/25) from the Fly By Night Tour, and the earliest (only one month into the tour) which means the first recorded version of "By-Tor and the Snow Dog", plus it's a radio broadcast (recorded by local station WSAN) which means the quality is excellent! Better yet, it's complete. The show itself is excellent. The band are already on top form, even in this early stage, and Geddy's voice is in great shape throughout. While his technique is much more unrefined and raw than it would be by 1976, he still gives excellent performances. Going song-by-song... "Finding My Way" has Geddy sounding strained in a few spots, but sounding great overall with him acing most of the highs (even the A5s), "Best I Can" is excellent with Geddy nailing all of the key notes and doing some insane screaming in the breaks, "What You're Doing" has a cool extended intro, and the song itself sounds excellent as Geddy takes much of it higher than the studio, even going up to a G5 in the second chorus ("Make me so upTIGHT") and Alex does some great soloing throughout, "Anthem" has Alex's guitar dropping out after the first chorus, but is mostly great, though Geddy sings it much closer to the studio than future versions (where he'd embellish it with much higher notes) he aces the notes that are there. "By-Tor and the Snow Dog" is played at a much faster tempo then the studio version, and sounds very good. Geddy screws up the lyrics badly in the first verse, but sings the rest of the song very well (Even hitting an A5 at the end, though like "Anthem" he's more conservative than in future years), and the entire band gives an excellent performance during the "jam" section in the middle. "Bad Boy" is an excellent jammy cover of the Larry Williams song (falsely credited as the Beatles) with great singing from Geddy (hitting notes as high as G5), and Alex doing some great soloing, "Working Man" is another excellent version with Geddy singing it with much higher vocal lines than the studio, and like "By-Tor and the Snow Dog" and "Bad Boy" the entire band shows off their jamming prowress well, with Geddy, Alex, and Neil all giving excellent performances. Finally, the band closes out with two encores. "In the Mood" is played at a blazing fast tempo and features excellent Geddy vocals (once again taking it way higher than the original), and "Need Some Love" sounds excellent, with Geddy nailing all the notes and even embellishing a few awesome F#5s in the second verse! ENJOY!
Winged Hussars / Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth & Traditional War SongThe Hussars were famous for their huge "wings", a wooden frame carrying eagle, ostrich, swan or goose feathers. In the 16th century, characteristic painted wings or winged claws began to appear on cavalry shields. The most common theory is that the hussars wore the wings because they made a loud, clattering noise which made it seem like the cavalry was much larger than in reality and frightened the enemy's horses. Other possibilities included the wings being made to defend the backs of the men against swords and lassos, or that they were worn to make their own horses deaf to the wooden noise-makers used by the Ottoman and the Crimean Tatars. It seems that the wing was used not to let horse get exhausted--run too fast, making repeated charges possible. Initially the first hussar units in the Polish-Lihuanian Commonwealth were formed by the parliament in 1503, which hired three banners of Hungarian mercenaries. Soon, recruitment also began among locals. Being far more expendable than the heavily armoured lancers of the Renaissance, the Serbian-Hungarian hussars played a fairly minor role in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth victories during the early 16th century, exemplified by the victories at Orsza (1514). The true "winged hussar" arrived with the reforms of the King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania Stephen Bathory in the 1570s and was later led by the King of Poland and Grand Duke of Lithuania John III Sobieski. The hussars were the leading, or even elite, branch of cavalry in the Polish army from the 1570s until 1776, when their duties and traditions were passed on to the Uhlans by a parliamentary decree. Most hussars were recruited from the wealthier nobility (szlachta). When Bathory was elected King of Poland and later accepted as a Grand Duke of Lithuania in 1576, he reorganized the hussars of his Royal Guard into a heavy formation equipped with a long lance as their main weapon. TRANSLATION OF THE LYRICS: Oh, dear rowan tree, where have you been growing in the midst of the swamps? Where have you been growing in the midst of the swamps, in the green moss? Oh, dear mother, what have you raised me up for? What have you raised me up for and conscripted me to a war? Conscripted me to a war and have forged me three trumpets? He trumpeted the first trumpet as he was riding off from the inner yard He trumpeted the second trumpet as he was riding off from the outer yard He trumpeted the third trumpet as he was joining the troops My horse pranced and all the troops looked at me And all the army had turned to me And a troop of Swedes has come, a troop of brave ones When we've stood in the field, we've knocked all the Swedes out Our Chodkewicz was very strong, he was a real king IF YOU LIKE THIS SONG, FULL ALBUM can be purchased here: DAINOS ŽODŽIAI: Oi šermukšnio šermukšnio kur tu augai tarp balių, Ei ei ajajaj, kur tu augai tarp balių?

World First - Skydiver Luke Aikins Jumps 25000 Feet Into Net With No ParachuteOn July 30 2016, Skydiver Luke Aikins, made history, when he jumped from 25,000 feet out of an airplane without a parachute, landing safely in a net set up in the desert of Simi Valley, California, setting a world record. Luke, who was 42 at the time of the jump, is a third generation skydiver, who has been skydiving since the age of 16 and has deployed a parachute more 18,000 times over the course of his skydiving and BASE jumping career. Luke is also is a safety and training adviser for the United States Parachute Association, where he provides advanced skydiving training, to elite military special forces. After jumping out of the Cessna airplane at 25,000 feet, Luke quickly reached a terminal velocity of 120 miles per hour. Using his GPS, and only the air currents around him, he lined up his fall to the center of a specialized 100-by-100-foot net, which was designed to stop Luke's fall, as softly as if you were to stand on a trampoline, and merely drop onto your back. The total time from jumping from the plane to hitting the net, took about 2 minutes. But when you are falling from 25,000 feet into a small net you can’t even see from 25,000 feet, I bet it felt like a life time.
