Rush On "The Family Guy"

Someone involved with the animated television series The Family Guy must be a Rush fan!

Back in November, a scene included Chester Cheetah (the Cheetos mascot) playing "Tom Sawyer" with a Rush poster on the wall and saying , his Rush poster and his saying "Ah God there is no f(bleeped out) drummer better than Neil Peart (pronounced 'Pert')!".

During last night's episode, there was another Rush reference: as Stewie and Brian are leaving Aspen, Colorado, a highway mileage sign gives the distance to Rhode Island as 2112 miles! (Note, this is in fact the actual milelage from Aspen to Rhode Island, +/- 6 miles! Coincidence?).

Rush on "The Knights Of Prosperity"

During the opening scene of tonight's episode of the new television series, "The Knights Of Prosperity", the leader of the group chooses "Tom Sawyer" as their theme song, then begins to sing Tom Sawyer along with a karaoke machine as the other members join in. Twice later in the episode the Rush version is played as well. The episode can be seen at ABC.com.

"White Noise 2" Includes Choral Rush

A review of the sequel to the film which starred Michael Keaton, where "A near-death experience gives Abe Dale the ability to see a spooky light emanating from those about to die", provides information about the final half hour of the film. The review concludes with "The final furlong features a stunning set-piece multiple death involving a piano, genuinely disturbing surgery make-up, and a school choir singing Rush's The Spirit of Radio. If only the first hour were this unhinged." - The Guardian, Jan. 5, 2007
