Download vids.

This guy named Rob decided to be a sport and share some video clips of the Download Festival which you all know included Tool this year. He put them on YouTube and they can be found here. He specifically mentions one video which includes the band's intro. And a plane and his drunk ass. :p

I can't seem to load an entire video, but that's probably my internet's fault. Hopefully they load for you.

Toolband update

Just a quick heads up to those interested- Toolband has an update from Blair regarding an e-mail he received about 10,000 Days. There's nothing too earth-shattering to report, but he does clarify some of the back-story on "Rosetta Stoned". It is a bit of a long update. Don't say we didn't warn you.
