without a doubt
Was listening to Tom Morello's show on XM and the theme of the day was live/concert performances. He played Jerkoff and explained the known stuff - how it was recorded at the Green Jelly loft on New Year's Eve and that Maynard rented a room from those guys and lived in a small part of the building. He then told a quick story about how some other people lived in another part of the building and they absolutely hated & feuded with the band constantly and how they almost came to blows a few times. Eventually all of the music and constant flow of people coming and going was enough and the others moved out but it's background to Maynard's "There used to be a bunch of assholes that lived in this part of the building, but we systematically removed them like you would any kind of termite or roach" intro to the song.
^ that part gets me so hype
Watching all these people on YT reacting to DC's drum cam on Pnuema
for whatever reason 4° won't get out of my head, also I may or may not have but most likely may have gained a better appreciation for Undertow in the last week or so, a true comeback story if you will
Whenever I feel like Undertow is slipping away, I watch the live show with Maynard in his long johns staring into my soul and get reinvigorated.
I wish I could paint like Alex Grey
Every time I listen to Descending and it gets to the climax, I think of how awesome that would be blaring in a college football stadium right before a huge drive at the end of a big game.
"Rise, stay the grand finale."
"One drive to stay alive."
Basically, 5:20-6:35, accompanied by a sweet hype video, would be incredible imo.
Thank you for reading.
The crescendo peaking with “Stir is from our...wonton slumber” at 6:35 is the high point of the album and undoubtedly a top 5-10 moment in their catalogue.
White suburban teens would refer to it as “everything”.
I keep trying periodically with a renewed spirit but I think Fear Inoculum's just not gonna ever happen for me, not to say I dislike it, just kind of lukewarm as a whole
currently on Culling Voices though and I still think that's one of the standouts
It's just not that good of an album, but hey, maybe 2043's album will be better.
The way Descending slowly builds into a raging storm is really underrated. When Maynard really ramps up and everything is hitting on all cylinders, it really is pretty epic.
electronic you kop yet?
I assume he has of the $10k signed ones
There are only 79 of them being made, I think. Going to really have to decide if it’s worth it.
I’m not a fan of having guitars that I’m afraid to play, so if I got one, I’d be playing it. I haven’t seen a price tag yet. No chance I’d go above like 5k for it.
79 of the aged/autographed version. There are 150 of standard that sold for $6,000
This guitar gives me a lot of competing feelings.
1. Adam Jones is probably the most seminal influence on my musical life, and I’ve loved tool since i first got the undertow tape in 1993 or 94. I want this guitar badly.
2. Silverburst Les Pauls are badass looking.
3. 6k/10k signature guitars are clearly marketed to yuppies. They certainly aren’t actually worth that.
4. I’m a yuppie despite my attempts to keep hipster credibility. I’m basically just slowly transitioning from ~allegedly interesting person to “cool dad” type AT BEST.
5. I will play any guitar I ever buy, and I’ve already got 2 Les Pauls. I’m almost 40, I’m not joining a metal band any time soon.
6. Buying guitars for the sake of having guitars is lame.
7. I want this guitar a lot.
If they’re already sold out, I probably did myself a favor.
Sounds like you’re going to have remorse regardless of which direction you go. Might as well have remorse AND $10k in your pocket amirite?
They are indeed sold out. I’m not sure if there was some sort of presale lotto or if they were just instantly gone but they’re no longer available.
I’d view this as a once in a lifetime purchase that, despite the cost, is easily justified by the importance & impact its had on your life. Plus there has to be a reason other than the law to actually go to law school and wasting money on unnecessary shit is as good as any
I currently own 13 guitars. This hasn’t been lost on me to date. Ha.
Liquidate and buy 2 you rich motherfucker
Would love to have a silverburst or goldtop Les Paul
A pallet of 13 of the guitars was stolen off a truck outside of Indianapolis. They were headed to my hometown in NE Indiana and almost certainly includes the one purchased by a friend of a friend, which sucks because I was considering reaching out to see if he’d let me come check it out.
Georgia has me feeling some type of way today, so it's just been Hooker With a Penis, Ticks & Leeches, repeat all morning.
I thought this was pretty good
Came across some Tool propaganda from the 90's while looking for an old users manual. Don't know why it's stamped twice with two different dates nor do I know how they got my address. Aenima came out later that year.
Did you used to look at that website toolshed.down.net? I remember their yearly April’s fools jokes
Their FAQ, along with the RATM FAQ, helped form some of young me’s earliest opinions about heavy music.
yah I met the guy who ran that at a show. Can’t remember his name
Hasim? Habib? Seems like it was something along those lines
Look at that eidetic memory folks
I was on that site a LOT.
Doesn't sound familiar. If I wrote them at some point it would have been because of an address in one of their first two albums but I have no recollection of it.
First page is a long winded news letter ended with, "c.u. later, m a y n a r d". It shouldn't make me angry but it does. I'd be a little less angry if I could still order one of these shirts for $10 (money orders only!)
I'm trying to see that show in Krakow
Tool in Eastern Europe would be quite the experience
Wonder if the wife would be down to see them on our 10th wedding anniversary
Floor seats in Columbus. Fuck yes.
those couldn’t have been cheap
Ironically enough I saw them in Columbus back in college just after 10KD had come out and had floor seats too. One of my all time fav shows.
I'm seeing them again in Denver. Can't wait
Wait til day before/of and go through stubhub. Last show we paid $30 a piece.
so the refreshed setlist for this tour may have me buying tickets after all
I see Tool and Puscifer are scheduled for Bonnaroo
mega festivals like that are literally my idea of hell but yes they're headlining Saturday and Puscifer is playing Sunday
