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.

Thats pretty cool, but im more excited about the notes they have under to Tool sideshow on the BDO wedbsite sideshows page.

“However be alert not alarmed, we’re expecting to announce more shows in Sydney and Melbourne shortly – stay tuned for details. Don’t buy tickets off scalpers!

And a note to the TOOL faithful in all other corners of Australasia – never fear! Additional TOOL appearances in Auckland, Queensland, Adelaide and Perth are scheduled and will be announced shortly.”

For any Aussies out there considering purchasing one of those plaques, the exact price is AU$288.06

I wonder how ‘limited’ they are?

By the way, if you do order one, don’t worry too much about the delivery timeframe. The site says to allow 6-8 weeks but sometimes things to Australia can take even longer… one item I ordered took nearly 3 months to get here so don’t stress too much if you ordered etc.

Reminds me of Channel 9 and Cricket, Richie Benaud and those tacky ugly looking Cricket Memrobillia Plagues that took $2 to make exceed the $300-$900 mark for their “authenticity.” Who the fuck has them in their house? Style people style.

People lost touch with reality.

Hanging Boony on your mantelpiece. I find that funny. I hope you do too.

Boony is a great Australian Icon I think. He definately is one of the most non-sold out aussies in the public spotlight.

If there was a plaque to commemorate Boony and the tons of beer he drank I’d buy it for a dollar. As for $300 smackeroos I think you’d be investing in Tool’s pocket. It’s not signed and therefore not unique

My Tip for the cup is Art Success number 18

For those who bet Good Luck. For those who wan’t to taunt me and say what a waste of time and money. EAT MY SHORTS AND SUCK MY UNDIES! Cause the Melbourne cup deserves a public holiday, nobody works anyway

^Any Tool sideshows booked yet for Brisbane this January…?

No? Guess you’ll just have to see them perform at the Gold Coast Big Day Out.

Here in Sydney we get our own show the night before our Big Day Out.

Yeah I suppose I am crazy. Today I bought a Lateralus commemorative plaque for US$222 all up when I really should be saving my money for other things 🙂 🙂 🙂

Yeah bugger reeps, but it’s only postponed, not like those bastards in Ministry who cancelled without giving a reason… fuckers.

I share your pain replayee. TMV postponing is heartbreaking. And yeah, I’m still absolutely gutted as well from Ministry cancelling. They don’t have long left to tour before Al calls it quits, so I really want to see them before they disappear.

after a day of debating, I bought it. It’s my all time favorite album and it’ll look great on my wall 🙂

^If it’s your all time favourite album then you will appreciate the plaque so much more in like 20 years when friends come around and ask “What is that?” etc. I know it’s hard to compare with bands of the past but my Dad is always asking about collectable stuff regarding bands from long ago. I just think it is cool to have some sort of momento that’s more than just a cd in a plastic case…

I’d just like to know how ‘limited’ they are.
