Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

but after a few quick searches, it appears the USA and Australia are very close in education systems. USA is ranked 14 and Australia is ranked 15. http://www.npr.org/blogs/thetwo-way/2013/12/03/248329823/u-s-high-school-students-slide-in-math-reading-science We're not that high... well we're probab...

It's not that hard really. Thankfully in Australia we have a decent education system. Nice lol... so what's the score so far? USA - 753 Australia - 1 The U.S. measures success in military power and bank account size. Our devolution in communal tendencies is a disease. But... keep patting yourself o...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

I may have asked this question before but does anyone know if this "ToolArchive" character on YouTube is affiliated with the band in anyway or a member of our beloved FE? Either way, he does post some of the best TOOL bootlegs out there Particularly the latest vid TOOL live St Charles in HD. Holy f...

Via Fourtheye , "A working title for one of the new songs is Bouncing Arab ." (my emphasis) Sigh . This is confirmation that the downward trajectory of the lyrical quality that began with 10,000 Days will continue. You can't get blood out of a stone. Your obsession with this working title is fascin...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

It's hard to blame them for the multitude of lawsuits they always seem to be fighting; everybody wants to cash-grab from a seemingly vulnerable band (they have so many people collaborating, it's got to be easy to find a way to wiggle in and start sucking from the host). The silver lining is that Lat...

Work is boring today... I'll give a projection of what I expect to get in Spokane next week. If the last few years are any indication, it will be either the same setlist as Japan or a couple different songs thrown in. 1. Rosetta Stoned 2. Stinkfist 3. Jambi 4. Forty-Six and 2 5. Schism 6.

Who's going to Spokane?

I will be making the 814 mile drive from Spearfish to Spokane, Washington. I have about 4 people coming with me; it'd be cool to meet a fellow fourtheye member at the show. Anybody else going to that one?

Ah those were awesome! Mayjay of the gold ol' days... untouchable. It's amazing how much the songs tighten up with the extra time being spent on them. The Pushit guitar solo was nothing then compared to what they ended up with. Hopefully this is considered by the fanboi Toolios who bitch about the n...

Idk why you'd have a problem with the 'spiral out' motif, MOG. Personally I think it's a positive M.O. for those who have a tough time trudging through the muck of daily bullshit. 'Spiral out, keep going' in it's beautifully done Lateralus form has probably saved a few lives over the years. I think ...
