NICE TRY - U2 RELEASES TOOL VINYL

Some very lucky people who purchased U2's "Songs Of Innocence" during a recent record store release found instead a copy of TOOL's 1992 "OPIATE" EP inside. Kind of makes you believe in mysterious higher powers doesn't it.

93

ALEISTER CROWLEY 'SILENCE' TEE Due to popular demand (i.e. your email), THE MERCH COLLECTIVE has added 93 MORE "SILENCE" tee-shirts to the store.

Featuring a portrait of the hooded Crowley as "The Silent Watcher", the shirt's overall design is suggestive of a magical operation (involving death simulation and the premature release of an endogenous substance) specifically timed to coincide with the plummeting brightness of the eclipsing 'binary' Algol star configuration. At a distance of 93 light years, Algol (Ra's al-Ghul) was known in ancient star lore as "the most evil, violent, and dangerous star in the heavens." Winking balefully in the heart of the deeps, the blinking "Demon's Head" holds yet another curiosity. To the "Silent Watchers", the famous "Algol Paradox" provides the perfect analogy with a closely guarded secret of our occult hyper-khemistry known as "The Jewel of Divine Anthropophagy."

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MAYNARD!

Birthday cheers from all of us today to that master multitasker, MJK. As a further example of the man's talent, I offer this drawing by Maynard entitled "SIEBEN" - a limited number of prints of which were once available to ToolArmy members (and proud we are of all of them), but now a rare collectible. Before putting this one on eBay, with a glass raised high (actually a mug of spiked coffee at this hour), here's to number 51, my friend!

Note: Don't spend too much time looking for this one on eBay.
