Blair put out the May 2010 Tool newsletter on Toolband today, and it turns out that it’s his 10th anniversary as writer/content manager. Congratulations Blair, and despite what some say I’ve always felt he’s been an great webmaster give then guidelines he must work within.
Plenty of goodies inside the newsletter, though I haven’t had a chance to read the full thing, but here’s the bit I like:
Also, with the success certain Karcists are having with the fragments from the grimoire entitled “Libri Of Veneficus Pro Tool”, it would appear that I should get my passport renewed. Once that’s taken care of, hopefully I’ll have a few extra bickies to finally purchase that ILC DOVER-manufactured Extravehicular Mobility Unit that I’ve been yabbering about for years. Remember, the suit with its 3D-Textile “Red Ned” stain proof hydrophilic fibers and polyurethane-coated nylon pressure bladders (hopefully they kept in mind the problem of Chocolate Ripple Biscuits). No wucking furries about the new Assassin spider, but there’s still the usual suspects!
Take a look at the January 2007 Newsletter in particular and some may note the correlation between various terms used…. Perhaps reason enough for Aussies to start getting excited.
There are also strong hints of a website update, something many of us here have suspected for a while now.
In other news today, it seems as though Tool may be playing in LA on the 18th, 19th and 21st of July at the Nokia Center. This may or may not be Ticketmaster (not on sale yet though) and I’m about to go to bed so haven’t checked personally. I’m sure someone helpful will post below if this is really the case.
