I never thought that the aliens conspiracy speech from Faaip De Oiad is actually available to listen to in isolated form... but it is!

I forgot that track even existed. I unchecked it from iTunes years ago when I wanted to be able to play Lateralus without having to manually skip through that at the end of the album. Now that it's been so many years since hearing it, I don't hate it...as much.
edit: if you like that phone call, I highly recommend firing up Netflix and watching Season 3 of Torchwood - the five part/five "day" Children of Earth series. Good stuff.

Hell yes Art Bell Coast to Coast AM radio, that was good stuff back in the day folks. The guys from Area 51 and shit.
Anyways, I had a vision that the next Tool album was going to be a Thick as a Brick type affair, just a single 80 minute long song. The album packaging will be another extra-dimensional type Alex Grey work, but the disc art will just be a big middle finger, something straight out of an Ugly Kid Joe album. Then Tool will have the last laugh at all you haters that went and bought it anyways.
But seriously though, the end of this month (the 28th thru May 2nd to be exact) marks the 8th anniversary of one of my personal favorite Tool albums, the titanicly overwhelming 10,000 Days. I know this might seem like a long time ago to some of of you, but I remember it like yesterday. I went to a midnight sale at Ernie Novembers, a local record shop. Houses of the Mole came out the same day and so did some fuckin Weezer album if I remember right, along with maye a Radiohead or some other big albums. Anyways, the doors open and I could hear Vicarious was playing. After about 50 people in line ahead of me, and 20 minutes, i get to the front of the line only to be told that they just sold the last one to the dude in front of me. Thankfully I was able to talk my way into buying the promo copy they were listening to, for a cool 10 bucks
What is your 10,000 Days story?

Gonna preface this by same I'm not a huge Tool fan, so I haven't spent a TON of time looking, but I've found a lot of their live performances are better than the studio ones, though often poorly recorded. What are your favorite live recordings and/or performances of Tool songs? This video of Sober is amazing, audio quality is a bit meh but other than that I love it. Is there anything else like that out there?

I bought my copy on release day - pretty sure it was just at a local store, but it might have been an online order. What I do remember was that at the time, I was a photojournalist and occasionally had to bolt out of the newsroom for spot news (read: car crashes, fires, etc). Every time I did that, the first thing I did when I got in the car was put that CD on and start right up with Vicarious. I hated, hated, hated covering things like crashes, and that song just gave me something sympathetic to listen to on the way.
