The TA chat transcripts seem to be up. In case you don’t feel like wallowing through them, I’ve assembled a bit of a list of highlights.

Maynard says the album will be out early next year
Jan. 3rd or 10th, 2006… roughly, in North America.
I have a feeling there might be an announcement Halloween maybe, but who knows. I had a dream I was swimming with the guys from Tool in a lake in Western Australia. I heard part of a song and it was awesome, really heavy, but when I asked if it was there song they started being really vague. Then I flew back home.
Maybe Halloween might be the launch of the new site?
I think something will happen at Halloween (Samhain). I initially thought it would be a newsletter, with some useful information for a change. I guess it might be something else, or even more likely, nothing at all!
Anyone know where the full transcript of the chat is posted?
Well it’s on Toolarmy, no idea if anyones posted it elsewhere, but it wouldn’t surprise me. Try Google!
