I’ll be sure to post a review,


A few months back, I posted this about the upcoming documentary “Blood Into Wine” featuring Tool’s very own Maynard James Keenan.

Today, they just released an awesome new trailer for the film! I don’t want to give anything away, so just check it out for yourself here:

Can’t wait,



Like a lot of people, I have a habit of associating music with the seasons. The Beastie Boys, for example, are good summer-listening music, while Dave Brubeck sounds best during the three frigid months of winter.

My favorite batch of music is what I like to refer to as “fall music.” I don’t know what it is about this music that makes it sound better during autumn, but (at least in my brain) that fact exists nonetheless.

Listed here (in no particular order) are my top ten favorite albums of fall. Some of them you’ve more than likely heard, while others might be a little more obscure. I encourage you to give all of them a listen, especially before December 21st.

If you have any of your own personal fall favorites, be sure to list them below in the comments section.


1. DJ Shadow “Endtroducing…”

2. Air “The Virgin Suicides: Original Motion Picture Score”

3. Moby “Play”

4. Rjd2 “Deadringer”

5. Nine Inch Nails “The Downward Spiral”

6. Radiohead “Kid A”

7. Portishead “Dummy”/”Portishead” (tie)

8. Plastikman “Consumed”

9. The Roots “Things Fall Apart”

10. Marvin Pontiac “The Legendary Marvin Pontiac”

Tricky and Tool are eleven and twelve,

And I have to admit that it kind of makes me sad that I’m no longer an hour away from Chicago.

In the meantime, spend the next four minutes and thirty-six seconds with Major Douche:

Tool was the creepiest live performance I’ve ever seen,
