Way cool! That Mandatory Fun one might be my favourite. They're all so detailed!

IDK why Halifaxkat (woman who actually did the dance with Al) doesn't post on here more, she more or less keeps it to FB. She posted her photos with Al from the Halifax shows and also a picture of Al with BUBBLES!! I was so happy to see that picture as I was wondering if Al and the guys knew who they were or had even ever seen Trailer Park Boys before. The picture is so awesome and Bubbles looks so happy. If you have never seen Trailer Park Boys it is the most hilarious show ever made in Canada, but there is a ton of swearing, drinking, greasy non-sense, which is why we'll never see Al on the show but this was still the next best thing. Alex Lifeson has been in a few episodes as has the rest of Rush, they love those guys! I want to make the picture of Al and Bubbles my avatar actually but I don't want to get rid of the classic WAY album cover. Still don't know if Kat took the picture or just found it but I assume she just found it somewhere.
What a racket they're makin', Jack, they keep me up at night playin' their electric guitars!!
