Another one of the 33 Signed Salivals made available last year is now up for auction on Ebay. Bidding starts at US$0.01 and continues for another 10 days. Good luck for those chasing one of these rarities!
Ganjalf contacted me today and told me that according to the recent Guitar World interview:
Jones: We’re working on “The Pot,” but i’ve been really lazy lately. The setup for it is a lot more epic, so it’s actually good that we’ve been able to have more time. It’s going to be all stop-motion and in 3D. We’re doing that so we can hopefully have it show in the theater.
Not sure how he actually got this info, since the magazine hasn’t been released yet. Will confirm this once I am able to read a copy of the interview myself.
According to ARTISTdirect.com current Metallica bassist Robert Trujillo loves Tool:
“My four-year-old boy loves TOOL!” Trujillo told ARTISTdirect.com. “When I take him to school, we’re playing TOOL all the time, so I definitely connect with them. There’s a lot of bass in that group which is nice. They’re a great band for a bass player to listen to. So believe it or not, my son and I are going through a big TOOL phase!”
He added, “I go through these real technical phases, and I listen to bands like MESHUGGAH and MNEMIC. It’s stuff that’s a little bit complex and takes a lot of patience. Lately, I’ve been jamming a lot to our music. I play through the new songs so I can keep fresh and keep them in my head. I can act crazier on stage if I can play them with proficiency.”

Thanks to Oldesch from Toolarmy for the tip.
Evildiscokid from Toolarmy has a complete set of sealed Tool and APC vinyl up for sale, and wants to avoid putting this up on Ebay. If this sounds like the kind of thing you’d be interested in (not sure if he’s willing to split the collection at all) then let me know, and I’ll put you in touch with him. Alternatively if you’re a Toolarmy member just PM him.
On of the signed copies of Salival is now available on Ebay. Bidding starts at the original sale price of US$200.
Turns out Maynard has another Twitter account, this one more Puscifer related than Caduceus. Last post was:
Just got the master of a new track I did with Renholder and Milla Jovovich. Listening 4 any flaws in the recording process. So far so good.
I’ve had a few requests over the life of Fourtheye for a link to the Ænima Smokebox Screensaver. Today I recieved another one, and decided that I’d finally upload it onto Fourtheye for anyone who wants it. It can be downloaded here and is about 2.6MB in size.
According to the readme associated with the screensaver, it was created by KungFuJesus and isnieZot and was originally hosted one the now defunct Tool fansite Deadohiosky.net. All credit goes to those guys for this, however a quick disclaimer – I take no responsability for any loss of data or damage to your PC directly or indirectly caused by the program. It does work fine on any Windows PC I’ve tried it on though, including my current Vista PC.
I’ve got another couple of the Signed Salival shots for you all to enjoy, this time from Will and Korax. Since I’ve got quite a few now I’ve started a new page where you can admire all of them. Thanks to all the contributor so far and I welcome further submissions.
Dan emailed me this link the other day that suggests that a version of the King Crimson classic Schizoid Man by Jeff Fayman featuring Maynard on vocals should see a release in 2009.
Finally, Joel send me a link to an interview SFGate.com did with Maynard, mainly talking about his wine-related escapades.
Finally, Maynard has been hit by the Twitter bug, and his can be found posting at http://twitter.com/caduceuscellars.
