It's based on Coleridge's poem Kubla Khan.

He is very deep, Welcome PerfektWorkingMandrakeoft, you should tell us about yourself in terms I can understand. Soups is just poor white trash from the suburbs and I really do not understand most of what you said. It sounds pretty deep though. In all seriousness welcome to the board and I hope you find a home here with the rest of these nuts.

Thanks for the deep compliment, Soup4Rush. I guess maybe I am deep because love and life are?

Anyway, the message that I was trying to convey was...

For the Moving Pictures tour, I saw Rush at the Municipal Auditorium in New Orleans. Early in the afternoon before the show, a member of the band was seen rollerskating in (Louis) Armstrong Park outside of the auditorium.

Was it Ged or Al?

We have a statue of Louis in our local CD store here. The kids like seeing him.
