10,000 Day Easter Egg

Tool’s at it again.

Rumor has it that a new song can be created when three of the eleven songs from Tool’s Grammy Award-winning album 10,000 Days are fused.

Here’s the track listing for Tool’s 10,000 Days album:

1. Vicarious (7:07)

2. Jambi (7:27)

3. Wings for Marie (Part One) (6:11)

4. 10,000 Days (Wings, Part Two) (11:13)

5. The Pot (6:21)

6. Lipan Conjuring (1:11)

7. Lost Keys (Blame Hofmann) (3:46)

8. Rosetta Stoned (11:11)

9. Intension (7:21)

10. Right in Two (8:55)

11. Viginiti Tres (5:02)

Take the songs 10,000 Days (Wings, Part Two), Wings for Marie (Part One) & Viginiti Tres. Here are songs:

Their track durations, respectively, are 11:13, 6:11, & 5:02. Take the sum of 6:11 & 5:02. It’s 11:13 right? Same number as the track duration of 10,000 Days (Wings, Part Two). Put together Viginiti Tres first then Wings for Marie (Part One). Play it while 10,000 Days (Wings, Part Two) is playing & you’ll get this:

*Can’t insert the video itself. Tsk.

Yep. Weird but cool. 😀

How creative is your favourite band?

Disposition, Reflection & Triad

Disposition, Reflection & Triad are tracks 10, 11, & 12 of Tool’s Lateralus album. These three actually form a sequence & is 24 minutes 42 seconds long when played continuously. Man, this song really grew on me. The transition of one song to another is perfect & it soothes you like fuck! Here are my interpretations of each song:

Disposition tells the listener to just chill & ‘watch the weather change’. Plain & simple.

Reflection tells us to sacrifice one’s ego before it’s too late. But hey, I think my interpretation of this song  is a mere ‘reflection’ of who we are. 😉

Triad. Last of the trio. No lyrics but a powerful song. It is the conclusion to Disposition & Reflection. Perhaps the idea is that through undergoing the philosophies of Reflection, we are able to transcend our humanity and become God (I’m an atheist. I’m just telling you my interpretations. LOL). The last art work of the album emphasizes this thought. Alex Grey, a spiritual artist who designed the Lateralus album cover, disguised the word ‘God’ as a brain matter. This song is followed by the last track of the album, Faaip de Oiad. “Faaip de Oiad” is Enochian for ‘The Voice of God’. I think this signifies the completeness of the process.

Butt fuck it.
