Vicarious DVD on Toolarmy

The Vicarious DVD is available to order on Toolarmy for US$12.98 plus shipping.  I’ve already ordered mine from JB Hi-Fi, where it costs that much but in Australian dollars.  I’m sure there’s similar bargains to be found around the world.  Of course if you do order it from Toolarmy (and I would have if they hadn’t left it so late) then you may get a nice warm feeling knowing that a slightly higher percentage of the money is going to Tool, or to at least the guys that run TA.

Here’s the artwork displayed in the Bazaar:

Vicarious DVD packaging

According to Nick, Circuit City are reporting that the Vicarious DVD packaging looks something like this:

Holiday in San Francisco, 10000 DVDs?

According to Indacello, Jello Biafra joined Tool onstage last night in San Francisco for a version of Holiday in Cambodia.  Guests joining Tool this tour during lateralus include Sebastian from Trans Am, Dale from The Melvins, Cody from Big Business, Tim Alexander from Primus and Aaron from Isis.  Perhaps Tool should tour with The Mark of Cain while in Australia so John Stanier can join them on stage…

According to Marco, a website in the Netherlands is claiming that the Vicarious DVD will be limited to 10,000 copies.  I’m not so sure of that, but order yourself a copy just in case!

New Poll: What part of the Vicarious DVD are you looking forward to the most?

The Vicarious DVD comes out next week (this weekend for Australians) and aside from the video has several cool features.  Which one exites you the most?

Entheologue With Alex Grey

On December 21st at the Chapel of Sacred Mirrors, Alex Grey will be presenting a special  screening of Vicarious as well as a documentary of the making of the video.  Once again the Vicarious Video is a collaboration between Tool and Alex Grey, and I know there’s a lot of us out there very interested in the results.

The session costs $25, and this includes an autographed copy of the DVD.  Sounds like good value to me!  Visit the COSM website for more details

DVD via CoSM, Tour Rumours

Just a couple of quickies for you. Firstly PlayingNaked showed me this piece of hidden (from my Gmail account anyway) info in the latest CoSM newsletter:

Limited quantities of the TOOL VICARIOUS DVD signed by Alex Grey will be available as soon as we get them and will have the option to be shipped by FedEX in time for Christmas delivery. Please keep checking the websites for details.

Secondly dickleiper tells us that Tool are pencilled in to play at the TSB Arena in Wellington, New Zealand sometime in March 2008  The way things are going I’d expect a Aus/NZ tour announcement sometime before Xmas.

Vicarious DVD Cover

Brandon emailed me to day to inform me that Amazon has an image of the Vicarious cover on it’s site. There’s also another review of the DVD on Amazon which again mentioned live footage. Rather than suggesting there’s a whole concert on it, it tells us that there’s live versions of Vicarious and Swamp Song from the shows in Las Vegas earlier this year. A couple of live tracks sounds a lot more likely to me.

It’s also available for Pre-order at JB Hifi for us Australians. Cost is $12.99. Thanks to Mattw for that tip.

Vicarious DVD, Aussie Tour…

Indridcold on Toolarmy posted this today. Not sure how legit it is, but is fucking hope it’s true…


– VICARIOUS – Extended 8 minute version
– The startlingly creative music video for Vicarious, the massive first single from 2006’s 10,000 days, is presented for the first time in this short form DVD.
– The DVD includes a documentary that takes you through the history of Adam Jones’ visual effects work, and the process and people involved in the creation of the all CGI video.
– Audio commentary on the DVD by comedian David Cross.
– A tour of Alex Grey’s COSM.

Unique tri-fold soft pack with stereoscopic lenses and CGI stereoscopic images from the Vicarious video.


Sounds pretty good to me. The contents of the DVD sound pretty much like I expected.

Vicarious DVD Ad

Blair posted on Toolarmy this ad for the upcoming Vicarious DVD. In case you’ve forgotten, it’s out in the 18th of December.  For those that can’t see the picture, here’s a link to it.

Upon examining the picture, it almost looks like there’s some green and red highlighting in it.  Anyone got some 3d glasses handy?
