A gentle reminder 
09:53pm 14/12/2008
  It's been ages since there was a real post in this community. call_of_cthulhu, the founder with his amazing theory has been MIA for about 2 years now. I hope that he is still alive, but I do have my doubts. Anyway, I just wanted to post a gentle reminder to those of us out there that still read this community what it was based on and why it's important.

Read more...Collapse )

I can't speak for anyone else in the community but this is the only Tool community that I am a member of. I, like Cthulu, grew tired of the crap that always happened in my favorite of tool communities. All of my favorites are deleted and gone because of shit that happened between the moderator(s) and members. And yet this one remains, but unactive.

So bring about action, if you've got any.

Just remember the theory.

Wanna wanna wanna see a great swap meet? Check out the Rainbow convention!

All hippie, gutterpunk, fruits and skank trade... With a twist of LSD and musical entertainment.
Om circles containing thousands (diminishing over the years).  All wishing for peace.

Free food from any kitchen, and whatever donations you have will just add too your karma!

NO ALCOHOL!!!! unless you chill at A Camp (not recommended). A Camp is the alcoholics who cause trouble outside the circle to keep the FEDS out of the event. No alcohol does not mean logical euphoria is banned! For those, or people like me, If you want to drink... Keep the bottle hidden... If not, you'll be told where to take it.

Follow the rules that the Federal Wildlife Marshals give! If they tell you not to dig a hole for a fire pit... DON'T DO IT!

Wear foot protection at all time... I always wear my nice waterproof Timberlands.

Know your plants. You don't wanna be poisoned.

RESPECT THE ELDERS!!! The more you listen and help em' out... The more entertainment you'll receive!

Don't ask for drugs... It's just shady and pathetic.

LOOK FOR THE DRUG FREE ZONE! They usually stick to kitchens, and most kitchens, if you help out enough will invite you into the drug free zone.

Doctors and nurses are usually around to give advice or soothe most simple ailments... Look for C.A.L.M. All medical treatment is free of charge, but if you're truely badly fucked up.... Go to the damn hospital!

The conventions are usually, and most likely kept under close watch by Federal Wildlife Marshals and the FBI... So that means don't park your car with anything stupid in possession unless you know what you're doing!

The last gathering was in Northwest Arkansas, and the next regional (Aug 15th- ??) is in Maine... Maines first gathering, and that is backed by an international somewhere in Ontario, Canada.

Any rainbows interested??? Check the sites out, And for those who like to take trips in small squares, or by the mouthful from little eyedroppers... I suggest helping out the kitchen  Bare Necessities !

So just click the link and learn more!


Any questions??? Just leave a damn comment!

  Hi, I'm sorry if this post is inappropriate for the community, but I was just looking for Tool fans such as myself.

Hard times recently have meant that I am having to sell off some of my music collection, and as a result my copy of Tool's Salival CD/DVD box set is going to have to go, and I hope someone else can get as much enjoyment out of it as I did.

ebay listing

For anyone outside the UK, if you are interested I can find out what shipping would cost, I have only sold within the UK so far so have not quoted it on the listing.

Cross posted to several tool communities, sorry if I clogged up your friends page.

10,000 Days is good, not as good as some of tools earlier work. But it's still pretty damn good. Maynard using some of his APC style in the mix, It sounds pretty bad ass. Vicarious and Rosetta Stoned are some of my favs. Right In Two, is pretty smooth self explanetory. "Monkey killing Monkey over pieces of the ground, silly monkey, give em thumbs, they forge a blade and when there's one, they're bound to divide it, Right in Two"

  "tool is the greatest band ever"

but we cant listen to tool all the time so,
surgest another band that you think tool fans would like and in a FEW words saying why you like them
Also surgest an album by that band.

Then comment on other people comments if you too like that band and a little bit about why.

What I think about Tool.
A letter from your friendly neighborhood moderator 
10:29am 12/05/2005
  I am beyond saddened that no one wants to connect.

We are riding this large, electronic machine that connects us all by our fingertips.

Yet, no one wants to know.

To share.

I'm not asking you to tell me all about yourself, I could honestly care less. Perhaps I should count my blessings? We've had far fewer wars and bickerings that other tool comms. Is this from all the disconnected ends?

I know I'm rambling. I know this isn't tool related. So it shall be:

disintegrating as it goes testing our communication
the light that fueled our fire then has burned a hole between us so
we cannot see to reach an end crippling our communication.

cold silence has a tendency to atrophy any sense of compassion

between supposed lovers
between supposed brothers.

And I know the pieces fit.

  Sick Poem of the week. Brought to you in part by Woolite, if it aint wollite it aint right. Now on to the poem.

this is a little ditty I like to call...


Disgusting growth
Filled with pus
It is quite sickening
Only to us

You milk it for all it is worth
Devour its contents, deplete its girth
All your sick meal plans
Call cor more pus
Start hunting humans to
Harvest it from us

Bathe in the frothy fluid
Lick yourself clean
Your disgusting habit
Is not to be seen
Your sticky atmosphere
Makes you feel serene

Soon you cant handle the weight
Of your giant growth
It takes a life of its own
And devours itself and you both

  But has anyone ever came across the song "Naked Fringe" in their quests to download illegal music and infringe copyright laws?

Because I sure have.

And this song, Naked Fringe... claims to be by Tool, Nine Inch Nails, Tori Amos and the Sisters of Mercy.

And it's approximatly 44 minutes long.

I doubt that this conglomerate is/could ever be possible.

And it's bothering the living devil out of me, does ANYONE know ANYTHING?

GREETINGS from the fallen city. 
06:50pm 05/02/2005
  I realized last night that this community has grown from ?five? members running from the same calamity. We bounced and played in this new found freedom. All around us people and fans were fighting tooth and nail.
We were the lifeboat to a tidal wave of fleeing refugees when two gangly, stick lesbians overtook the bodies of what could have been sane, thoughtful persons. I can't quite remember if that community is still working? Hyperbole?
I believe strongly, though this is lj and fun for the masses, that this community is and shall remain a good place, a safe place... free of lightning and dictators and creepy fish persons.
I may disagree with things you say but I doubt it will turn into a mud slinging free-for-all... much less, me banning people or telling them to go elsewhere. I'll just eat you. If you don't know what I mean when I say this, go read "Call of Cthulhu" by HP Lovecraft and maybe you will come to know and love these stories as I have. This is a tangent of course...
At one time I had personally greeted everyone who joined at their journals... but then I went away for a while and came back to a large volume of new members in my absence. It's good to know that you have all taken to heart that even though I created this thing, I am not the moderator... I just set the damn thing up. We all should take care to not preserve what there is here, but allow it grow and not to become infected or harbour hatred and alienate people. I feel this has been done. Butterflydamage and Doesanyoneknow and Hyperbole and whoever else was here took command and thanked and welcomed as much as their hearts swelled to see so many people joining our wild dance of freedom.

I can't tell you how long I've waited to see a group of people obsessed/in love/ enchanted by Tool to come together and not bicker and argue, but talk.
Since bloodycake and toolerapc had caused some problems, I found that you two have helped us grow as well. Though I didn't agree with the things you've done or said, I don't feel any animosity from you or towards you. Don't get me wrong here, though, those were mistakes... and we should all learn from these... and history must not repeat itself for you should end us all that way.

In timing with the next release, I feel it's time to reflect on what has been. Looking back and smiling and pondering.

I have always felt that if those people who had hurt us, or were the cause of our flights, could always join us. No hatred. No battering. Just people coming together to honor this music that makes us feel whole or makes our energy pure or gives us that sense of hope and peace. Not pry, but open our third eyes.

The following is, of course, very optional:

I don't know if there's an anniversary date or whatever, but since the coming alive of my passion renewed by the last APC concert I attended, I have been wanting to open it all up. Bring it all out. Come together and share. SHare with pictures! [pity the dial up and lj-cut peas and carrots] Share your experiences. Come awake! Tell us all your thoughts and beginnings. It can be apc or tool or if you feel compelled, anyone else. It can be dreams, stories, fantasies... let it all meander and swim.
In light of recent members, and reactions and multitudes of comments, just open up and let us in. Is your third eye open? Psychic experiences, religious meanings, hidden thoughts, or, you know, ~~**ALIUM THEORIUMS**~~!!! Tell us about it! It's a big meet and greet! Hold your lights high for all to see...

I am but a way, and headed home.

~Your Friend and squishy elder god,

  i am currently on vacation in long island new york from the san francisco bay area. yesterday, i had the chance to witness the inspirational beauty that is alex greys chapel of sacred mirrors. i also attended his full moon vigil which consisted of meditation, and dance.

my heart chakra is shining brightly.
and yours can too. if you live anywhere near new york city, west 27th street, or even the east coast... i highly reccomend you go and spend a few hours there. by yourself if possible. embrace the skin that you live in. embrace every essence of your mortality.

Just sayin' hi. I'm new to live journal, so i figured i'd join some communities. Well, being a singer and lyricist myself, i cant help but to be overwhelmed in fascination by Tool. It's mainly the messages and notes which Maynard hits that compells me to listen and comprehend. It's also the rhythm of the music and it's grungy soundwhich sets it apart from all the other music ive found to date. I'd love to find Tool fans who are as captivated as me, which I'm sure there are a few here. Spiral Out...

It's been there everytime I'm down and it's something to relate to and calm you. It can change your mood so quickly.. I made a few graphics of tool. I only have done Maynard so far but I'm going to do some more of the rest of the band. I though I would post it in here but if anyone in here doesn't think there should be graphics feel free to delete this post. Pain is an IllusionCollapse )

Yes, everyone hates these first member posts, but someone's got to do it.

Thank God there are still people who are about the music, and not the forum.. I'm tired of these little communities where the bigger the shrine of the lead singer in the closet, the more revered you are.

Anyone feel me?

And I do apologize if there wasnt meant to be a post like this and uhm, yeah. I dont think it's in my place to say "take this post away if it isnt", because really, that's up to the moderator.
