10,000 Days

Tool #1

So anyway, I went shopping today and noticed that 10,000 Days had been promoted to the #1 position, with Pearl Jam taking #2.  I’m sure the official confirmation will come shortly……

Don’t forget Tool are programming Rage tonight.  Start’s just after 11pm if memory serves me correctly.

COSM Listening Party

According to Toolband (and I’m sure Toolarmy as well, though I can’t get on!):

For those of you who plan on attending the 10,000 Days listening party at CoSM (FRIDAY, MAY 5th 8 PM – MIDNIGHT), at some point during the event Alex will be giving “an illustrated talk about his work and interaction with Tool.” Admission is $10.00.

Sounds like fun to me. Wish I was in New York!

Meats Meier

James sent me a couple of links today to Meats Meier’s website. Meier provided a couple of the images for the 10,000 Days booklet. Check them out here:

10,000 Days received

I finally recieved my 10,000 Days CD in the post last night, and let me assure you all who haven’t yet invested, the packaging is awesome, and is well worth adding to your collection.  The CD is now available to purchase in most parts of the world, so if you’ve downloaded already, then now is the time to come good with the cash.  The drugs and hookers Tool take on tour with them don’t come free…..

I’m still posting 10,000 Days reviews, so those of you who were holding out and have only just heard it, make sure you send me your review – Good, Bad or Ugly.

Sony Australia Tool Competition

Australian Tool fans can enter a competition on the Sony site to win a copy of 10,000 Days, a 10,000 Days blockmount and a copy of the “rare” Lateralus Vinyl. Probably not as “rare” as my signed vinyl though….

Go here for details.  Thanks to Nemesis for the tip on that.

Coachella, Rage, Sunrise

There’s plenty of bits and pieces floating around regarding the recent Coachella show.  A couple of guys at Toolnavy has posted some pictures of the show (though the one’s I’ve seen aren’t of great quality) and Distortion Online seems to have a few mp3s.

Just a reminder that Tool are appearing on Rage this weekend as guest programmers.  The Rage website has a little preview video of Danny and Maynard hamming it up for you to enjoy.  For those people who aren’t Australian, Rage allows guest to come in and pick a selection of videos, ususally around 30 or so.  Rage isn’t televised over the net, but I know that several members are planning on recording the show.

Finally, just in case you are interested, 10,000 Days was mentioned and show briefly on Sunrise this morning by Molly Meldrum.  Nothing exciting was said, more that both them and Pearl Jam have been released this weekend, and that it’ll be interesting to see who claims the #1 spot on the charts.  My money is still on Tool…..

US Midnight Sales

I’ve updated the list for Midnight Sales in the US, which, sadly for you guys is one of the few places to start selling 10,000 Days.  Anyway, mosey on over to the Midnight Sales page.  There’s still plenty of gaps, but based on that list it’s probably safe to say alot of Hastings and Tower Record stores seem to be having midnight sales, especially those in the CBDs.  If anyone’s got any more to add, free free to either comment to this post or email me.


Just a couple of little bits and pieces from the web the last couple of days:

  • Some Signed Lateralus Vinyl is up on eBay at the moment.  Price is up to US$355 right at the moment….
  • Here’s a little interview with Maynard and Justin from the NZ Herald.  Speaks of rumours of a tour in November, but apart from that isn’t much different from the last 50 or so articles.  Thanks to xpandnz from Toolnavy for that.
  • I’m going to update the Signed Lateralus Gallery later today…….
  • Blair says that Kevin Willis and Camilla will be taking pics of Coachella, and other small shows and that they will be posted on Toolband/Army
  • 10,000 Days was available in Rockhampton Saturday morning, much to my surprise….
  • There are some reports of shortages around the place, but it seems more like some stores are running out, while others have plenty.  Luckily mine is in the mail!
  • Spiralysys tells me that he has a copy of the recent video interview with Danny and Maynard on MTV hosted on his site.

COSM 10,000 Days Listening Party

Blair mentioned on Toolband/Army today that there will be a listening party at the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors in New York City on Friday May the 5th from 10pm-Midnight. Feel free to head over there and hobnob with Alex Grey and his mates. More details to come…..

10,000 Days in Sydney

James tells me that Hum in Newtown, Sydney are selling 10,000 Days.  If you can’t wait until tomorrow, get down there now!
