oh god, wouldn't that send you straight to the pooper to change your whities.

I differ in thought. They pay so much attention to the album art and I think they know their fans also care just as much that they will still go through the whole process to make a package we can all touch. But, who would have seen what Radiohead did coming?! I think Tool would be one of a few bands that could pull that online sale off the same way.

exactly. i would have to say, if they were to take the digital route this year, it would be followed by a physical/special edition release a la in rainbows.

and yes, it would be a pants-changing experience. after i come around from passing out.

also, new musick at www.puscifer.com in the player. momma sed live is sweeeeeeeet. very APC-ish.

i doubt that there is any new material ready for release. i'm hoping instead for a trip [heh heh. pun intended] into the tool back-catalog.

I could handle that.

The 09 tour scene is shaping up to be a good one.

Yeah, I just hope I can afford all these concerts. The older I get the more expensive my bands and my weed gets.

It's a little different with ISIS , Adam guesting on their new lp , both bands good friends . ISIS only had short sets last time round , I'd say it's possible for sure , we'll see . Maybe they'll just do their own tour .

Hopefully this time round Tool will mix up the setlists a whole lot more . The best nights I have seen them is when they play songs you're not expecting in an order you don't know from reviews etc . All depends on how tight the stageshow is I guess .

for the sake of complete self indulgence, wouldn't it be delightful to see maynard go full throttle and have a Tool tour supported by Puscifer and/or A Perfect Circle ? egomania at it's finest. exhausting and impossible, but fun to imagine.
