Tool webmaster/newsletter troll Blair recently announced a new Darklore X book he contributed to on Tool’s official website and social media.
Daily Grail wrote to Tool on Twitter, “I read a comment on @Tool’s Facebook post about Darklore X that said “who the f**k cares about ancient meteorite veneration” and now I’m questioning my whole life.”
Tool responded, “My reply is this: ‘Well should one strike you square on the noggin while you’re on the way to the out house – causing you to be cheated out of hearing the next Tool album, don’t blame me when the local baptist minister shrugs and says that God works in mysterious ways.'”
Daily Grail responded, “BTW – RTs and amplification of Darklore X-related tweets are very much appreciated!”
Tool shot back, “PLEASE BE ADVISED TO DISCONTINUE DELVING INTO THE MYSTERIES OF THE UNIVERSE. WE WILL MAKE AN APPEARANCE IF YOU DISOBEY. WE KNOW WHERE YOU LIVE IN THIS TIME-CYCLE. YOU CAN TAKE MY WORD AS ONE OF AUTHORITY IN THIS MATTER. MY-ENERGY-IS-LOW. GOODBY. WHAT-IS-THE-WEATHER-LIKE?”
Below is the Tool website announcement:
After a two and a half year hiatus, the latest volume in the anthology series DARKLORE (Daily Grail Publishing) has been released and is now available in both an affordable softcover format and collectible limited edition hardcover version at AMAZON and other online booksellers. As with the other issues, DARKLORE 10 contains articles that explore some of the more obscure facets of history as well as presenting ideas that challenge conventional belief systems. Included is a balanced and objective investigation into rogue archaeology, psychotropic compounds and otherworldly entities, alchemy, ancient veneration of meteorites, baffling artifacts and the occult influence on rock music.
As one of the contributing authors (for the 10th time), I wrote about Gray Barker (“Making the Unbelievable Believable”), one of the key figures during the golden age of flying saucers, whose hyper-imaginative mind and enterprising hand introduced concepts that have become Hollywood staples. This includes the shadowy MIB, the Braxton County/Flatwoods Monster, the Mothman phenomena and Philadelphia Experiment. Along with the text, I’ve included related photos of some of the ultra-rare books in my personal collection, such as the mysterious VARO Edition of “The Case for the UFO” and the nearly impossible to find paperback “Those Sexy Saucer People.”
