KEY=====> MK=maynard james keenan, AJ=adam jones, 
DC=danny carey JC=Justin Chancellor, B=blaire
this is a transcription of the salivalcast web cast, for those 
who have not been exposed to the supreme wittiness of TooL 
or wish to be wowed by my stupidity in my decision to 
transcribe this 54 min monster. (yes, the last would be a 
good reason...)O... enjoy the "fruits" of my busy hands...
Salivalcast:::=)for those of you who don't know, maynard is 
the vocalist, adam guitar, danny drums, justin bass... blaire 
newsletter person, and David Bottril is Tool's producer... 
many of the phrases were semi-intelligle at best, but I've 
done my best to  accurately "guess" what the witty people are 
saying.... extreme unsureness is indicated by a (?) at the 
end, or in the middle or wherever... right, on with it then, old 

::laughs:: Adam: anyway, this is adam... and blaires the one 
who writes our newsletter of our collective thoughts.. once a 
Blaire: uhh, adam? We've gotta go to commercial first to do 
the crispy cream condom coercial-we'll be back
Adam: we'll just screw it up (?) while your doin that
Blaire:, anyway... questions are to be taken, but 
first we're gonna talk about... the band.
MK: how did we all meet?
Blaire: well, how did you meat?
MK: uhh, hi. this maynard. uhh, we all met at, uhh, what 
would be known as MIT, the music institute of technology. we 
were all in seperate schools. danny in the drum institute, or 
percussion institute. adam was in GIT, i was in VIT, and, of 
course, justin was in BIT. and the... end of semester project, 
they put one person from each area together, to form a 
band, and, uhh, have a little battle of the bands. and, uh, we 
got second place.
B: pretty good, second
DC:: that wasn't good enough, though, so we had to keep 
trying. till we became number one..
MK: and we got third last year. 
JC: so that keepin tryin(?)
DC: thats funny how that works
AJ: so what's happening right now, is, we're in a room, and 
we're staring at two moniters. one is playing the visuals, and 
one's a moniter with the questions. and... there's a person 
screening the questions, so if you ask stupid questions, your 
question won't get answered. and we'll laugh.
MK: our first show was played.. at a birthday party, actually 
our second show was played at a birthday party at the central, 
which is now the viper room. the very first show was kindof a 
sound check, kindof a first run, at the green jello loft.
AJ: oh, look at the question... guest plate (?) nope.
B: and that was maynard that just told you that, case you 
didn't recognize the voice. what about the new box set 
MK: weel, we came up with the name TOoL, because there 
was a fire (?) sale, a bunch of band names, and, uh, it was 
the cheapest one. 
JC: what about the new box set though? ::snickers::
AJ: I wanted to say that david bottril's with us too, the guy 
who, uh.. 
B: -he's not miked, so don't ask to many questions
AJ: -yea, so if you wanna ask a david bottril question, you 
can ask a david bottril question.
B: we'll give him a mike.
DC: for all you aspireing mixers, producers, ...
JC: I'll have some wine..
B: well, we have another question here, too strange though.
MK: lachrymology is a form of exima,...usually centers 
around the ... groin area.
B: and that was maynard again, just failed to introduce 
AJ: okay, this is adam, we need more questions, so we can 
pick which one it is..
MK: and that was maynard talking about exima...
B: that's not a very good one, either.. we're lookin for some 
pretty good questions tonight.
AJ: blaire, can you put your pants on, please...
B: alright, what music are you listening to, danny?
MK: the bulgarian womens quire, maynard.
AJ: I'm not listening to any music.
MK: adam's not listening to any music.
JC: loves the TOoL progression, this justin.. I'm sick of 
(sounds inebriated, is drowned out by maynard, but 
continues talking)
MK: lately we, as a collective, have been listening too, uhh, 
the tracks for our new upcomeing record in april. pretty much 
all we've been doing, kinda locked in the studio. very self 
absorbed, narcissistic behavior.
B: you do listen to the tracks of the upcomeing record?...
MK: not while we're recording them, no.
B: that would be a question for david, but, like I said, hes 
not miked.'s a good question, how is salival different 
from Aenima?
MK: uhh, Aenima came out in 1996, and salival will come out 
in the year 2000. 
B: that's a pretty big difference.
DC: that is a big difference, this is danny, also...Aenima was 
recorded in a studio, and most of salival was recorded on 
stages in various places around america.
JC: Aenima is a bout 6 minutes longer...
MK: yea.. ::chuckle::
B: they're also spelled differently..
AJ: adam, more questions, more questions...
B: thats a good one for adam.
AJ: this is adam, the videos are based on what the songs are 
about, kinda done in a collective surrealist way. and the ideas 
for the videos in where...
JC: in maynards underpants.
AJ: that's right..
DC: that's where they mostly originate.
AJ: just a note, just for the record, everyones got about three 
beers in them right now...
B: the problem is, it's not enough-creed, they're takin our 
MK: four four?
B: creed has been a bane to us this evening might 
wanna say...
MK: umm, hi, this is maynard, and I would like to point out, 
uh, that, uh... we need more questions...
JC: i guz let them creed guys no where i am.. i guzz he ef-
MK: this is maynard,and my favourite song off salival would 
be LA municiaple court, because it does what most songs do 
not... it is in line with, uh, I could liken it to films like, uh, the 
patriot, or, uh strangeland....-more beer? (AJ)... in that is 
stretches time. it is a song that stretches time.
B: how come the first song on opiate doesn't start right away? 
opiate? uhh, that's an earlier recording, right?
MK: umm, you need to buy a new cd player, becuz your 
opiate should start right away, if it doesn't start right away, 
then you should probably take your cd player back to sears... 
and bring your reciept, and see if there's a problem.
B: what is the talking right before cold and ugly?
MK: this is maynard, the talking right before cold and ugly is, 
uhh... is probably some kind of, ummm, is triggering a 
pathlectic aggression, there's no talking before cold and 
ugly , and you need to go see a therapist.
Blaire: I dunno, uhh, danny, you got another, uh, you know 
what that might be?  how has your music evolved. 
justin maybe good for you.
JC: kindof, uhh... in the circular pattern... and uhh, although 
it's coming in a box.
B: mmmhmmm.. okay...
DC: it's getting larger and larger...
MK: it's spiraling out,
B: were gonna take a fifteen minute cigerette break, but 
keep the questions comin'
AJ: more questions, hmm... whats a good one...
Blaire: why don't we take this with each person... maynard, 
what's your inspiration? -uhh- or would you prefer to go last?
MK: uhh, my inspiration....uh, just life situations, friction
BLaire: kay, guy sitting next to u'se adam.
AJ: adams inspirations are... 
MK: that's inspiration, not perspiration, by the way.
AJ: uhh... 
MK: ::snorts::.. okay... 
Blaire: well, this is right up his alley then, undertow, the cover.
AJ: what is the cover of undertow... uh, its a sculpture that 
was photographed, of, umm,. a sculpture made up of clay 
and plaster, and it was flocked with little hairs, which is little 
cut hairs, and this electrical device...
MK: which were collected from... moe... when we shaved moe 
the pig, we kept all the hair, and we used that as the flocking.
AJ: you tend to get...
JC: Flocked?
AJ: you tend to get flocked from symetry get... used as a 
reaction (garbled, quiet)
Blaire: really? from who?
MK: umm this is maynard, I really, uhh, my reaction to the 
word Flack, is extreme. the word flack kinda tends to set me 
Blaire: next qustion, PLEASE! Flack... we, we specifically told 
you people no flack qestions...
MK: Not unlike the word, House keeper... cleaning..I think....
B: didn't we specifically say no flack questions? no legal, no 
AJ: here's a good one, did you guys ever have sex with each 
MK: not that your aware of....
DC: i dont think its possible, this is danny... (?)
Blaire: justin?
JC: what is your musical inspiration...
MK: uhh, lately... haven't we all been listening to portishead 
lately? or.. massive attack? anything?
JC: a lit'le, a lit'le
MK: a little massive attack?
DC: here and there....
MK: autchre?
AJ: sarah brightman, but they don't want that in there...
MK: a little bit of oww tecker.... how do you spell that. A U...
DC: download...
MK: how do you spell that, A U C?
DC: A U T 
MK: a u t...
DC: C H R E....
B: what's your favourite band to tour with?
MK: uh, our favourite band to tour with would... would be... 
probably be led zeppelin.
B: are they gonna do anything?
AJ: we were talking with those guys about re uniting and... 
coming out with a ...
MK: mmhmmm.... right
DC: but I didn't really wanna do it, cuz I would have to play 
drums for both bands.... no one else is worthy.. 
B: okay, here's one for danny. adam, place the mike very 
close to your mouth...

AJ: okay...  hows this.
B: no, not that, the mike.
AJ: this is adam... talking... with his mike close...
B: favourite of your albums. we'l start with adam
AJ: adam doesn't have a favourite.
MK: Iced Pee.
DC: the next one
MK: it's an import, called iced pee.
B: mines the bethleham abortion clinic, but I'm just the host.
MK: maynard speaking, my second favourite record would be 
the bethlehem abortion clinic. my third favourite would be the 
collection of b-sides known as "crapsteaks smothered in 
dictators", and my very first, number one favourite TooL 
record: Iced Pee.

MK: I picked, there ya had it........... uhh, this is maynard, 
have you used different proccesses for making your different 
albums? the answer to that is yes.
B: absolutely... david, anything to chime in on that?

B: and here's david bottril for news-
MK: and, can I explain? I'm not allowed to, My lawyer said I 
was not allowed to explain what I meant by yes, uh, I have 
no recollection of that event.
DC: this is danny, uh, what were the processes different 
between Aenima and this new record. David.
David Bottril: the processes have been quite simialar in that 
the studio that we have been using is the same one, but the 
inspiration has been different.
MK: we're much more... we're much balder now.
DB: much balder yes, we're more follically challenged on this 
record than we were on the last one. 
B: this one's for david also whiles hes got the mic
DB: I am speaking into the microphone, dammit, how--
B: what's your view on christianity, thats a good one for david.
DB: my view on christianity...sorry, I'd like to pass this 
question to somebody else.
MK: I LOVE crypt tales... when I was a kid, my mom used to 
read me fairy tales all the time... luv 'em.
AJ: was it nazism, or christianity...
MK: my favourite part's where Hitler gets a christmas 
B: alright let's get off this subject for a second, go to this 
thing about, what do you think of napster?
MK: changes his whole view on the world,,..... I think this us 
one of those fake questions...
AJ: Nobody's napster! this is adam, I love napster I think it's 
totally changed, uh, the whole technology of, um, buying 
records, vs. downloading, and, uh, I just think it's great. I 
think everyone should go and download our new album.
MK: I think adam's lying, firstly.
B: I think that's a fake question, actually, I think that's one 
of our own questions that nobody was gonna-
MK: uh, my view on napster, this is maynard, my view on 
napster, is that I think it's gonna inspire lazy musicians to 
get off their fuckin' ass, and go out and tour more because 
they're gonna basically have a valueless catolauge.
B: he's pretty serious about the... any levity from over here?
JC: uh, I think there's enough people thinking about napster.
AJ: if someone downloads your album from napster, is it 
going to flow differently than the cd will.
MK: I think yea, uh, this is maynard, the downloading of our 
album off of napster, what we've done is, uh, because of the 
digital technology, we've sown in a virus... and I don't mean 
a virus for your computer. I mean a virus for your genitals. 
and it will accelerate your, your pubic hair growth to the point 
where you'll look like cuzzin it. you probably shouldn't do it.
B: but some will try, nevertheless..... favourite cartoon...
MK: the warner brother cartoons are absolutely our favourites, 
because they were fairly complex, they appealed to adults as 
well as children. and uh.... nobody died!
B: that was maynard again, they don't have cartoons in 
AJ: this is adam, I love speed racer.. that was my favourite.
B: danny? cartoon?
DC: ::sigh:: oh, man....
B: he cant think of anything...  roundabout way....
B: we'll we be opening you another beer,.....
MK: Hippie! what was your favourite cartoon as a kid... and 
don't say scooby doo.
JC?:hippie liked speed racer.
B: alright, heres a good one....collaborated with other bands...
MK: have we ever collaborated with other bands. not that your 
aware of.
AJ: and lo, the answer is, not that your aware of.
DC: the melvins
AJ: this is adam, I just want to know what you guys are 
doing, typeing questions in.. to your computer, asking us, 
about us, just sell everything you own, move out to los 
angelas, and start living in our TooL compound. working for 
us, having children for us, and worshipping us. ...and 
listening to our music, and just treating us like the gods that 
we are.

MK: doing our precious laundry...  just 
doing the sacred laundry... cooking the sacred meals...
AJ: what was the first concert you went to?
MK: rick springfield.
B: that's maynard.
AJ: for real?
MK: maynards saying rick springfield, yes, absolutly, sparks 
opened up.
DC: danny's was lynyrd skynerd (sic)

B: come on.. what're you on... where can i get some....
AJ: I guess maybe the eagles
DC: wow...
AJ: have you ever masturbated on stage?
B: david? a question for Bottril..
AJ: that would be a good question for maynard, actually.
MK: oh, that's my question?
AJ: cuz I'm ....
MK: have I ever masturbated on stage....
AJ: your the only one with your hands free!... 
MK: well, i think what they actually are asking is... is 
conceptually. have you ever, quote, en quote "masturbated"

your hand....okay...

TooL album backwards, well which one?

stop, so... justin, stop.
MK: apparently, this isn't a urinal.
B: hey uh, would you like to talk about the lyrics to 
hush, ... 
AJ: maynard?
MK: yes, I could talk about the lyrics to hush, I could 
probably even write them down for you...if you want, uh, I can 
describe them in detail, and give you kindof a map of how to 
go about listening to them... I can even draw pictures, um, 
there's some photos that go with them... as well, and if your 
patient enough, you can download them at "eat a dick dot 
B: if you couldn't be musicians, what would you be?
DC: I think I could be a haberdasher.... "excuse me? what 
size do you where?" I think I could manage something like 
B: adam won't answer this, but he's always told me he 
wanted to be a steeplejack. wanted to polish the steeples on 
all the churches...
JC: I think I'd choose to be a proffessor of Culpid (?) 
technology, or lesbian science.
MK: testmarket positive thinking...
AJ: here's one for maynard, uh.. maynard, what is the 
security code for the alarm system at your house,
MK: umm., well, its a number...
B: can you give it to us as a rhyme? it rhymes with what

AJ: tell it in a limric
MK: a limmric!
B: who does your artwork, that's a good question.
MK: there once was a man from nantukit. whose.....
AJ: bank was bigger than a bucket (>>?)
MK: pinto wassit was bigger than .. sittin dick he could suck it. 
B: how do you feel about people remixing your music.
AJ: it depends on who..
MK: depends on which people 
AJ: most of the stuff I've heard has been really silly, but 
um.. I would let dave bottril remix something... I would let....
DC: cuz he's the only one who let reed mix, cuz he mixed it 
the first way. 
MK:  my favourite part about this 
whole entire web chat, is....
B: alright, slow down... if you had to be trapped in a room 
with britney-- britney-- who? britney spe-- spired speares, or 
george W. bush, is george bush light? who would you choose. 

MK: christina aguilara.
B: can you have a weapon? if you have a weapon, I'd rather 
be in there with george W. Bush. 
AJ: would that be stuck in the room  in a positive way, or 
a negative way, like-
MK: who would argue with that?
DC: that would get you in trouble.
AJ: I mean, can you have sex with Bush? cuz like my friend 
kevin wills says, "he's hot!"
MK: downtown....
AJ: downtown.... 
JC: he left a worm in there...(?)
B: I don't think about a worm with braces, do you, adam?
AJ: this is adam, uh, thats our friend chet.
MK: incandescent worm... duh.
AJ: who.. thats our  uhh, fritz, and that's some 
background images that we show when we play live.. so come 
see us live.
B: and buy the box-set before you do that.
MK: my favourite part about doing this entire webchat, by the 
way, this is maynard, my favourite part about doing this 
webchat is, we're so drunk that we think we're really clever, 
and every time we say something that we think is clever, we 
look up to see if camella aproves...
B: when is Danny carey going to put out a full feature 
tableture book? please, danny, look how many exclamation

depends on who you talk to, as far as what "full length" is...
AJ: bigger longer and un-cutt?
B: probably nothing full length, right. why give em full length, 
when they'll take less.

they're signing on ass...
DC: who are you?

in and asking these questions, we're just absolutely cronic 
smart-asses, so you'll have to bear with us. it's our defense

AJ: one on the dvd, one on the cd.
MK: absolutely, take that fuckin' midget out!
AJ: we're not tellin you you need to kill prince, 
MK: he's an embarrassment.
AJ: but...
DC: danny's would have been George Bush, cuz then we 
would have taken care of two in one blow.
B: why is the box set limited...? can't sell that many, 
MK: because we realized that there is people out there in the 
world who will buy sixteen copies of the exhorcist because 
they keep adding some another some silly little thing that 
makes it worth you going out and spending another twenty 
dollars for it.
AJ: wait, maynard, didn't you kill john lennon? was that you?
MK: uhh.... not that you're aware of.
AJ: what is your favourite movie... uhh, this adam, the devils, 
umm... 1984,...
DC: this is danny, back to the future.
AJ: oh, I love that!
B: wait, the first one, or all of them
AJ: wait, the part where he comes down the hill and he sees 
himself in the car...
DC: oh, wow... what a mindblower, huh?
B: hey, danny, we need to talk after this thing, man... that's 
an amazing mind too.
MK: this is maynard, battlefield earth. battlefield earth is my 
favourite film. it stretches time.
B: who named this thing, I think it was Justin. what does 
salival mean? the title.
AJ: it's pretty obvious, I'd say...
MK: it means the cadillac.
JC: the old celestial jesus thang... that's about it, right?
B: it has something to do with the saliva of the rose as a 
secret of sex magic, we'll talk about it later on though, in the 
newsletter. keep em comin.... Eulogy has to be one of the 
best metal songs ever.
MK: off the internet.
B: where does adam come up with such elaborate 
MK: adam gets them of the internet.
AJ: yea, get em off napster, actually, we all write the music 
dude, we all come up with arrangements... so that's where we 
come up with our elaborate-- I'll be serious for a second
MK: One thousand one...
AJ: what's the next question?
B: who would open for TooL when you go on tour?
MK: who would open for TooL? well, led zeppellin, if they were 
together. but they're not.
AJ: I'm trying to talk to bands if we go to Europe, to get, 
umm.... to get a band called Meshuga to open for us. cuz I

B: is there a theme to the next album? and introduce 
yourself, cuz we're getting tired of not knowing who you are.
MK: uhh...introducing ourselves, this is maynard, a theme for 
the next record--
AJ: can I introduce you?
DC: huge and evil!!
AJ: and here is maynard, maynard, take it away...
MK: uhh, the theme, for the next record, would have to do 
with... It's kind of a sitcom thing. what we have is like, there's 
two girls, working in an apartment, and like a guy moves in, 
and the landlord doesn't want a guy moving in, so he 
pretends to be gay, and then all of the sudden he comes in 
the wrong door, and all hell breaks loose!!
AJ: you forgot about the song with the wacky next door 
MK: oh, there's some wacky next door neighbors, that 
happen to be british, just happen to be british, wacky and 
british doesn't neccessarily always go together, but in this 
case it does, and that's the theme of the record! 
communication breakdown.
B: you're rich, other than that. that'd be reflected, I guess.
MK: uhh...
DC: not yet.
AJ: does anyone have any questions for the webmaster?
DC: yea....
MK: ohh, shoot.
B: pretty reliable source that a human with 48 chromosomes 
would be a horrible mutation, what are your thoughts.
MK: umm, actually, 
B: what exactly is 46 and 2 getting at, there ya go/
MK: well, it's actually 46 chromosomes, and an X or a Y, 
that's what the two is about, not necessarily 48 
chromosomes, 46 and an X or a Y.
B: which would be 47.
DC: 48, then the other two Y's would be a horrible mutation.
B: and it would not be two Y's.
DC: probably worse than our point now.
MK: probably boardering on hermaphrodite.
B: maynard, what belt do you hold in bazillian jui Jitsu, and 
what is your favourite fishing movie...
MK: oh, finishing move, finishing move... my 
favourite fishing movie is Deliverance.
AJ: twenty nine bottles of beer on the wall,...
MK: My favourite fishing movie is deliverance, and I hold a 
blue belt, in my one hand, and in my other hand I hold--
AJ: this is adam, and for a moment I would like to just 
shamelessly premote TooL right now. uhh, tonight, later on 
tonight, we are going to offer salival box-sets for sale, and 
they will be signed by a band member, if you're interested, or 
MK: Not neccessarily a band member of TooL...
AJ: no no, of TooL. a band member of tool will sign.
MK: oh really? cuz I thought we were supposed to get the 
Deftones in here to sign 'em for us.
B: what would be your message to a new fan, maynard?
MK: my message to a new fan would be,
AJ: don't jack off in it.
MK: listen, just listen.
B: okay...
DC:  ohio...
AJ: budman! thirty nine, thirty three...
DC: yo...
MK: absolutely, budman...
AJ: we're comin to your town, budman...
DC: what, do you live in cleveland?
: oww....
B: alright, justin... how has the writing process been different 
with justin's involvement?
AJ: actually, alot easier.
MK: we tend to make decisions with a british accent.
DC: oh, blimey, gov'na.
AJ: blimey riffs are way better than american riffs. err... the 
septic tank yankee riffs...
MK: septic,..septic...
AJ: septo's.... Justin, you wanna answer, or do you want us to 
keep interupting me...
JC: naw, that's fine, just interupt me...

MK: free.
B: time ta gets tha keeps gettin ya...(?)
AJ: is that the name of a band?
MK: hmm.. free beer.
B: we can't give out that information, we can't premote beer. 
you know, brand names. Creed does that....
AJ: Don't have sex, and don't do drugs. but move out to 
california, and join our compound.
DC: don't drink the beer.
AJ: shave your head, 
DC: Creed premotes.
MK: do the sacred laundry.
B: has all the attention that bubble gum p--wha? bubble gum 
JC: you've got to be kidding.
B: will perhaps help draw that attention away to more groups 
of substance.
MK: uhh, I think that the release of our record will be a minor 
ripple in that big pond, and that the bubble gum pop is a far 
deeper--(reaching music)
B: as the british would say: not bloody likely.
AJ: it's up to all of you to change that.
MK: actually, the evil is too thick, we'll never break through 
the evil.
DC: we're trying to take up all the space we can.
AJ: Yo TooL!!
DC: yo.
B: Yo tool. someone forget that taht's a lie up there.
DC: they obviously want 
MK: I don't have any idea what the fuck you're talking about.

years and years ago.
AJ: I said that porno.
DC: there's something askew...what? ..... did you ever wish 
diary of a madman.. what?! Sick fucking billy

MK: uhh, yes there are, you'll just have to wait and see.
DC: who wrote that?! that's an insider.
AJ: that's vince.

writin, more  questions....
B: damn, I was gonna write david for that one, okay...
AJ: more questions!
B: MOre beer!
DC: one left.
MK: email us some beer.
B: okay, well, I think we've offended everybody...
DC: I think we've exhausted our supply of questions.
AJ: I have one for the fans: do you love us?... I mean...
MK: even as much as we've just insulted you.
AJ: do you luv us?
MK: and as drunk as we are.... what artist contributed to the 
box set booklet.... SId Cado!

AJ: from whales
MK: three dollars to jason...uhh... from Joni Mitchell.
JC: are you serious?
MK: and that's the funny part.
AJ: by you guys, we love you.
DC: last few words.
B: buy the box set, you'll never regret it.
MK: thank you very much for being patient with, uhh, us. I 
realize we're very obnoxious,
B: don't blame Creed too much...
MK: and we trust that you are intelligent enough people to 
absorb our wit and not be insulted. we're in this with you, 
and, uh.. thank you very much.
AJ: it's been fun, and we'll do it again.
DC: this interview would have been much, much better if 
those fuckin Creed bastards wouldn't have drank all our beer.
B: hear, hear.
MK: anything else Justin?
JC: pleasant enough to see you all again....
B: and that should conclude it, we're gonna go to that crispy 
cream, what are we brought by? crispy cream condoms
MK: sponsered by crispy cream condoms, thank you very 
much, and maynard sayin: 
: Goooood Byyyyyyeeee!!
B: happy trails...

100% accurate, but represents an approximation of what the 
beautiful people actually said, .... right... If you have any 
questions/comments/praise, send it to keep in mind this thing took me 
in excess of 20 hours to complete, heheh. yes, I'm insane. I 
don't mind if you share this bit around... just don't modify it 
too much with my name on it, heheh. right, hope ya enjoyed 
it good. thanks for reading. oh, and I would like to thank the 
ellipse (...) for it's great help in expressing unended 
thoughts, of which there were many. yes.
