Sorry for such a terrible tagline. But I was listening to the
The Ongoing History of New Music, this week featuring Tool. This is a band with some serious issues. Such as:

  • As a joke, listed on their website that three of their members were in critical condition after a bus crash (ha ha, funny)
  • Developed a pseudo-science called Lachrymology . The central teaching is that only through physical and mental pain can one become a higher being (side note — kind of like the thought process from The Nameless.
  • They developed an entire CD based on the Fibonacci Sequence (after two starting values, each number is the sum of the two preceding numbers — so 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, etc). This is a very strange sequence in that nature works around this sequence.

    They have a track (because it’s not a song) called faaip de oiad (translation – Voice of God). It is chilling in its own way because the guy talking is deep in his own dementia — and it’s obvious he’s going to crack at any time (it’s actually a phone call to the Art Bell show…this is a real guy)

    I, I don’t have a whole lot of time. Um, OK, I’m a former employee of Area 51. I, I was let go on a medical discharge about a week ago and, and… [chokes] I’ve kind of been running across the country. Damn, I don’t know where to start, they’re, they’re gonna, um, they’ll triangulate on this position really soon.

    OK, um, um, OK, what we’re thinking of as, as aliens, they’re extradimensional beings, that, an earlier precursor of the, um, space program they made contact with. They are not what they claim to be. Uh, they’ve infiltrated a, a lot of aspects of, of, of the military establishment, particularly the Area 51.

    The disasters that are coming, they, the military, I’m sorry, the government knows about them. And there’s a lot of safe areas in this world that they could begin moving the population to now. They are not! They want those major population centers wiped out so that the few that are left will be more easily controllable.”

    What does all of this mean? Absolutely nothing. Just interesting subject matter.
