Mercury going retrograde doesn't mean that any electronic harassment from ball lightning, etc. at the Tool Loft will prevent the guys in the band from writing and arranging new music. Besides, the phenomena observed near one of the amps today was most likely flammable methane escaping from an opening in the vintage Pepsi cooler.

Yes, I know that the puck that DANNY caught happened during a recent L.A. Kings hockey game, but at the Lakers game last night, when I asked him about how things were going with the band, he told me that a couple of days ago ADAM had come into the loft with an ending for a particular song that everyone really liked. So, perhaps the musical arrangement for another TOOL song is finished... unless they sometimes write the end of the song first?
