Cheap official Tool shirts

So I've been hearing some complaining about the cost of shirts at Tool shows during this past tour. If you're looking for an official Tool shirt but not looking to spend $45, we've got a bunch that are as cheap as $11.99 US. (That's like getting 3.75 shirts for the price of one) Most of the shirts are $12.49, which is still a bargain for Tool stuff. So yeah, check it out.

Let the speculation begin!

Looks like it's official, Tool's playing BDO.

In search of good Tool RSS feeds

I just wrote a bit of code for the Hotline sites that makes the implementation of feeds a lot easier. Are there any Tool related news feeds you would like to see made available on the front page? Let me know.

Ænima Turns Ten

The Daily Grail has just been updated with news that today marks the Tenth year for the release of Ænima.

"It's ten years since the release of perhaps the greatest rock album of all time, Ænima by TOOL. Put it on, play it very loud, and marvel to the musical genius that could only have come about through pacts made with Lucifer himself down at the crossroads at midnight. If you don't have it, rush out and buy it now. Alternatively, you could learn to swim."
