It may be the end of the road for Rush — but there’s good news. We’ll look back at a classic science fiction film for evidence of lazy prop-making. Search your feelings — you know it to be true. Now that Apple has borked your music library with its latest app update, the Cupertino California company has set its sights on the advertising industry. Plus — a Geeks and Beats update on our big giveaway, and why Macy Gray won’t be played at Alan’s 25th anniversary night.

 

That title requires some explanation. At our wedding twenty-five years ago yesterday, my wife was most dismayed at my unwillingness to dance. (Hey, it’s just not my thing, okay?) She remarked “You will dance at our wedding and then dance on my grave.” An interesting statement to make heading into a marriage, no?

Yet we’re still here.

By the way, my half of this week’s podcast was actually recorded in my parents’ basement in the small town where we got married. Plans were to tour Bordeaux for our 25th, but things got in the way. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be any Michelin-starred restaurants in this section of Manitoba.
