Adam drops The Pot hint?

As noted overnight by GoListen2LennyWhite on Reddit, Adam seems to have recently posted a pic on Instagram which may or may not hint towards a video for The Pot. Here’s the photo:

The photo includes the tags #whyseeagel and #hottep, the latter which is speculated to be an anagram for The Pot. Anyone got any thoughts on the first one? Wordsmith.org returns 426 possible results, including my favorite “Wash Eye Gel”.

Looks like a slug with legs.

Eh I thought the pic he put up of him and Danny a couple days ago was much more interesting than this.

We all “know” The Pot video is coming, no need to be all cryptic about it.

Blair mentioned the date January 5th in the last newsletter. I really thought something would be posted today regarding the release of this video or it would be in the shopping bazaar. No luck. These guys take their sweet ass time with everything.

I really hope the still isn’t for a video of a song that came out six and a half years ago. I think it took Kubrick less time to make. Eyes Wide Shut.

I guess the hash tag pretty much proves that this is for The Pot. Oh well, I hope that it’ll be worth the wait.

Not an exact match, but my first thought was a newborn joey in the pouch.

Yeah Adam mentioned a theatre release some years ago for this. It might hint at artwork for the next album just like Parabola did for 10000 days… Maybe they will bundle the DVD with 10000 days vinyl?

the tool site has become a place for them to promote their friends. look at todays post or yesterday. or the last few years for that matter! bah

I’ll go out on a limb and say that almost every picture he uploads is atleast 10 years old.

re: the next anal bum cover They need to back off the involvement of Alex Grey’s art imo. Nothing against what he/they’ve done up to this point. But another album saturated in his art would be really underwhelming. My feeling is that Tool’s music has told a story; that story pretty much ended with Lateralus and was more or less tied up with 10,000 Days. I’d say they’re in a musically transitional phase, which is my theory as to why this album has taken as long as it has to write. They’re taking their time rediscovering themselves. That’s my theory… Read more »

From MJK’s wine website: Thursday, December 27th, 2012 Cellar Additions Our trip to Italy ended up being far more expensive than I’d previously thought. Once I saw the larger format barrels and casks, I was screwed. Must. Have. Gallon for gallon, with regards to price, these items are basically on par with the higher quality French barriques we use anyway. I guess this means for us less TOOL writing and more puscifer and APC shows. Oh lets not forget the show in the far east, the cash to pay for those expensive barrels and casks has to come from somewhere.… Read more »
