Australian Tool Competition

Sony Australia are holding a competition to win a Paiste Drum Cymbal signed by members of Tool (seems to be a common thing at the moment), Limited Edition Vinyl, a T-Shirt, a Poster and Tool’s current CD/DVD catalogue. All you have to do is enter a barcode from any Tool product and describe in 100 word or less what is your favorite Tool album and why.

Make sure it sucks so that my entry is the winner by default.

Rare Aenima Vinyl

Some more stuff for collectors on eBay again, this time a rare Aenima Promo Vinyl.  According to the comment it’s the rarest and most sought after Tool Vinyl in existance.  I would have thought the Lateralus Signed vinyl was rarer, but anyway….

Currently bidding puts it at US$355 with still a couple of days left to go.

Xmas List Poll Results

This weeks results are in, and it seems overwhelmingly that you guys want the Live DVD that has been mentioned many times on Toolband. Following that most of you want either Aenima 2 (whatever that may mean), Signed Lateralus Vinyl or the Vicarious DVD. I voted with the rest of you in this want, hoping to get a Live DVD. Maybe one day.

  • Tool Live DVD 209 Votes
  • Aenima 2 32 Votes
  • Signed Lateralus Vinyl 26 Votes
  • Vicarious DVD 26 Votes
  • a bottle of Nagual De La Naga 20 Votes
  • a Danny Carey Instructional DVD 16 Votes
  • a Maynard Target 6 Votes
  • Platinum Lateralus Plaque 5 Votes
  • Toolarmy Membership 3 Votes
  • a copy of IJYNX 3 Votes

This weeks poll ask what version of Maynard do you prefer? I’m talking from a looks/style point of view, not a reflection of his lyrical content at the time. Here’s a few pictures to help you out:

  • Undertow – Redneck Serial Killer
  • Aenima – Blue Dude
  • Aenima – Hooker With A Penis
  • Lateralus – Leather Suit
  • 10000 Days – Mohawked Cowboy
  • A Perfect Circle – Womanly Man

Signed Vinyl, Photos, Volto!, Isis

Greasy on Toolarmy today pointed out to us that there’s some more Signed Lateralus Vinyl on Ebay at the moment.  Bidding on this one starts at $300, and as I write this there have been no bids.  Here’s the link.

The Tool Hotline woke up from their deep slumber to post a couple of things.  Firstly there’s this gallery of photos from a recent show in France. Secondly they mention that Volto! are playing a couple of shows, on on December 29 at the Baked Potato, and the other at the Knitting Factory on January 13.  Check out the hotline since there’s a couple of photo’s of the guys linked there.

Finally, Blair on Toolband/Army tells us that Aaron Harris from Isis will be featured in the January 2007 issue of DRUM! magazine.  Blair hints that he may be talking about the Mandala drums.

Look what the postman dropped off today!

Mastodon, Signed Lateralus Vinyl, Music

Mastodon talk briefly about the tour with Tool on the AOL Music News Blog.  They also talk about appearing on the Conan O’Brien show.  Here’s the link.

I received an email a few days ago from a TA member who is interested in obtaining a copy of the Signed Lateralus Vinyl.  They are obviously a little hesitant in purchasing over-priced, and potentially illegitimate items from Ebay.  Should anyone be wanting to part with their copy, send me and email me and I’ll put you in touch.

Those of you who like bad music, and equally bad recordings, should head over to the About Me page on the right, and you’ll find something I recorded some time ago….

Lateralus “Platinum” Plaques

Just in case the Signed Lateralus Vinyl hasn’t burnt a big enough hole in your wallet, there is now a Lateralus “Platinum” Plaque available for Toolarmy members which celebrates Lateralus selling 1,000,000 copies. They’re not cheap though, at US$206.00 (plus US$16 postage to Australia, around $288 all up in Australian dollars), you’d better hope your credit cards aren’t maxed out….

It’s a limited edition apparently, though how limited we aren’t told.  They are still available as of 11:13 AEST.

Happy Halloween, Daily Grail

There’s several new posts on Toolband/Army detailing a recent Halloween Hollywood tour conducted by Camella, Blair and co. It’s an interesting read, but if you’re looking for Tool news, go elsewhere. There’s also a couple of pictures up as well.

It was also revealed that some more Signed Lateralus Vinyl was released to celebrate Halloween. Not many were available apparently, and it seems as though they’re all gone. Well done if you managed to score one.

Finally, the latest issue of Sub Rosa magazine is out, and features an article talking about Blair‘s Crowley collection, and also talks about Danny‘s as well.

Wisconsin Cancelled

According to Toolband/Army the Tool show tonight in Madison, WI has been cancelled again due to illness.  Presumably Maynard is still not 100%.  There’s no indication if there’ll be a make up show in this case either…

Isis fans can feel a little better though, since due to the cancellation the guys will be playing at the Beat Kitchen in Chicago tonight (19th September).  Doors open at 9:30pm, and tickets cost $12.00.

The final announcement on Toolarmy tells us that the live dates section is back up, and that member reviews can be submitted once again.  No sign of the Australian dates as yet.
Finally, Michael has shared with us his Signed Lateralus vinyl, this time he’s had it framed, and frankly it looks pretty damn good.  He tells me the frame is made from 20mm thick Jarrah.  Here’s one of the pics, for more just follow the links below.

Isis Tour, Vinyl Trading

Mattia sent me this link today in which Aaron from Isis speaks to MTV. They talk about their tour plans, and how they hope to tour here in Australia later on this year. This suggests to me that they won’t be playing with Tool in January. Aaron also talks about the new CD In The Absence Of Truth, which you can preview by downloading the new song Dulcinea from Ipecac. Here’s the cover art for you as well:

A bit of a plug here, but Knucklehead on Toolarmy is looking for a copy of the Lateralus signed vinyl. He’s very keen to get it, and is willing to trade a sealed copy of the Aenima LP. If anyones interested, either let me know or PM him on TA.
