  2. As a fan of both the Canadian prog rock messiahs Rush and comic books I have to say I find this picture profoundly disturbing.

    1. The concept of an "unintelligent Rush fan" still baffles me to this day. I mean, I know they exist, but...how? It's as much an oxymoron as a trailer trash classical music aficionado.

    2. Depends on whether you count "insufferably smug, vastly overrating their capabilities, and tying up way too much of their identity with a technically competent but silly, pretentious and overblown band of noodlers" as "unintelligent" because that's pretty much all Rush fans to me

    3. u mad bro? I don't herald Rush as the second coming or anything, but it's not my position to defend them. They're one of the definitive "love 'em or hate 'em" bands.

      It's just that for a band which places such emphasis on complex instrumentation/arrangements and verbose, philosophy-laden lyricism, they don't typically attract the same kind of fans as, say, your Poison or Winger. Smug and pretentious fans? Sure. Mouth-breather high school dropouts with a preoccupation with weed? Not as likely, but maybe it's a regional thing.

    4. I love Rush and the shirt sells the joke. Hilarious.

  3. i get it...he probably thought that because the word "chronic" was part of the word "chronicle". brilliant he.

    to him i say, "just wait for the wayans brothers parody version of this film of which i'm sure it will satisfy all your stoner needs".

    1. But the thing is, title or not, this is EXACTLY what the movie is about. They smoke weed, get superpowers, have all sorts of crazy hijinks with them and eventually shit gets real. The only thing I can think of is that he thought they were going to get the powers FROM the weed.

  4. Any weed potent enough to make the Wayans brothers funny would have to be that $2000 an ounce shit from American Beauty.

  6. Ugh. I hate these annoying potheads who think everything has to do with weed, and only ever talk or think about weed. And so do all of my friends who smoke pot.

    1. I enjoy cannabis and hate these types of people as well. They're the reason people think there's such a thing as "marijuana addiction".

    2. It's not so much that these people are addicted to weed as it is that they don't get around to doing anything else.

  7. If only there was some way he could have have been able to learn what the movie was abought before going...hmmm?....Nah, that's to much like homework,pass the doritos and stop bogarting the bong man.

  8. Every time I hear about the movie Chronicle I think, for a second, that maybe they've made a movie of the TV series The Chronicle, or, at the very least, finally released it on DVD.

  9. Actually that movie would be called, "Half Baked" with Dave Chapelle and a couple stoners.
