    Toolband has a link to a crowdfunding page for the Terence McKenna archives. Youtube suggested to me one of his lectures some time ago, and I've been pretty entranced ever since. I've devoured quite a bit of his work. His lectures and books touch on very familiar territory compared to Tool's music and Maynard's lyrics, in areas such as Jungian psychology, psychedelic exploration, mathematics, the history and future direction of the human race, and so on. A quick Google search as I'm typing this tells me I'm definitely not the first person to notice this similarity, but I hadn't ever seen anything officially connecting the band with him before. When I was in High School, I delved somewhat into the various intellectual areas that have informed the band's work, like Timothy Leary, Bill Hicks, Alex Grey, and such, but hadn't come across Terence McKenna.

    And maybe I'm like super late getting on the bus on this topic, so I apologize if this seems painfully obvious to other people, but I highly recommend checking some of Terence's work out for those who are interested in that particular aspect of the band. For me, even more than their polyrhythms and extended song structures, the intellectual bent of the band is what sets them so far apart from other alternative metal bands from the 90s-00s.

    I've certainly run across Terence Mckenna's name a lot over the years... Have you a recommendation on what from him to begin with?

    I definitley didn’t look the same 17 years ago either. :P

    ::wife takes razor blades away::

    And that drum set is polar opposite of Danny’s that was put up a couple days ago. I can’t play either one so I’m not gonna judge.

    Reminds me of Liam Wilson of Dillinger Escape Plan. Went from John Fogerty to Billy Gibbons.

    Yes, I remember that pic Trent posted when he first re-joined NIN back in 08? 07 maybe?

    So, have we seen any indication that Maynard is with them at this point?

    I haven't been keeping up with their progress in the last couple years for obvious reasons, so I just want to make sure: Since the release of 10k Days, have they ever entered a "major studio" like right now without anything coming out of it? I don't wanna get my hopes up too early

    No. It's really, finally happening this time. New Tool is imminent.

    This is the first lecture I really remember digging into. There's some Alex Grey artwork in the images by whoever put the Youtube video together, but I don't think there is any real direct connection between the images and the lecture beyond the video.

    Technically they were in the studio doing the “curveball” that we haven’t seen any of. Apparently a re-recorded, studio version of the extended Opiate they’ve been playing live.

    I gotta say, I think it's really cool of Maynard (and the band, of course) to be so transparent about the progress on this record now that it's time to put it together. It really is the best way for them to just cut through the crap to say, "Hey. This is finally happening. Take this journey with us." Much more refreshing than the more-common "6-18 months of silence followed by the announcement" approach.

    Why would those blankets be on the kick drums while Danny is playing them?

    Unless I'm out to lunch, I thought it was always to reduce bleed from the other drums or cymbals into the kick mic.

    I love it but it’s so uncharacteristic. I have trouble processing it!

    Although I remember the band talking about dropping some of the mystique and stepping out of the shadows around 10,000 Days for doing things like putting their photos in the booklet.

    Has anyone seen Blair lately?

    Oh, it's for sure uncharacteristic! I feel like Maynard's also turned a new leaf in a LOT of ways as an artist in the past 10-15 years, and this approach is a good way to drop some of the mystique and keep the hungry fans happy without being in everyone's face with "NOW, THE ROCK N ROLL LEGEND OF A GENERATION, RETUUUURNS" and just completely botching the band's comeback. Keeping shit humble. I like it. Keeps my faith that they want to devote most of their efforts to making something that can speak for itself artistically, and something people will wanna listen to for another 10 years.

    Take yer time, gents! We've waited long enough to get here, no sense in rushing now.

    Yeah, it's called a kick tunnel. Also helps isolate the non-kick mics from the boomies of the kick, which one often filters out of the other mics anyway.

    My guess is since they are only doing two festival dates in May, Tool wants to tap that VIP package money while they can.

    Yeah, they're just to space out the two festival shows in Wisconsin and Ohio while APC is out playing other shows too. Maybe they'll add more, but the new album should take priority. I wonder how transparent they will be at these events. $500 is a tough price though.
