The world is surreal

Last September, while on the SS Professor tour, Lorne Wheaton, RUSH drummer Neil Peart's tech, stated that Neil will be making an appearance on 'Aqua Teen Hunger Force' sometime in the future. It turns out that Peart won't just be appearing in an episode, but in fact will appear in the big-screen movie coming later in 2006. In a recent interview with creators Matt Maeillaro and Dave Willis, Maeillaro stated, 'We got Neil Peart to be in it. The drummer from RUSH. No, we didn't get Geddy Lee. We didn’t need him for this. We're waiting for the sequel for Geddy Lee,' while Willis quipped, 'We're done with Geddy Lee. Geddy Lee missed his opportunity. Now we'll put everyone in the movie, but Geddy Lee.'

For those who are unsure what this all means, "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" is a cartoon geared towards adults which runs on Cartoon Network in the US. "Rush" is a band. Neil Peart is Rush's drummer. Geddy Lee is Rush's singer and bassist. The "SS Professor tour" was a tour in which the drumset used by Peart on Rush's 30th anniversary tour last year ("R30") toured the US. Yes, just his drumset. Big drumset.

Why is this news? If you have to ask, then you wouldn't understand even if I explained it.
