FROM 01/06/2003 to 12/2004 ARE ON THIS PAGE.
NO NEW INFORMATION WILL BE AVAILABLE HERE.
December 4, 2004
Finally, 2001 + 2002 dates are now up. That would make that a whole hell of
a lot of time & energy spent on verifying source information, wading through
emails, websites, hand written notes & making connections with older
contacts. Everything listed on this site is backed up by some form of
information or another. That said, corrections and opinions are always
appreciated. I am sure there are mistakes somewhere & if you see something,
let me know.
There has been so many changes to this entire site that listing everything
here would be pointless. Some major areas to list are: rationale for MP3
samples, the 'want list' & various types of information. I have worked so
long & rather hard on this massive update > overhaul. Honestly, hope people
realize this fact & use the site to assist themselves in their collection. I
am a fan of this band & have been for a long time in the past & shall be one
for the future, this website is simply a testament to the art Tool creates
when they perform live. This has been an almost daily project for me after
work. Does it matter? Matters to me.
There are many more updates of not just site material but also live
recordings coming up in the very near future. Things are looking bright.
November 12, 2004
Yep. Still here. Am I doing stuff still? Yes. Having a good time as well. Am
100% done w/2001 & am 1/2 way done w/2002. There are many steps to each
show/source. Am & have been triple verifying everything again & trying to
get back to old contacts & am happy to make new ones.
Recently the Tool Leeches have been out. A word
to the wise, stay away from them. They will let you know that they are
finished with you after they take everything of value from you while
contributing nothing. You know who you are & if you have no idea what I am
talking about, good. These people give trading a bad name. These people lack
respect for other traders & the recordings themselves. These people do not
listen to the stuff they have. These people do not care what lines are
crossed. These people are so completely "in" for themselves that it is
disturbing. These people are hypocritical, confined vampires.
November 12, 2004
Have been doing stuff behind the scenes so to speak. This is taking a long
time. Is worth it, a nice way to unwind after a day's work for a little bit.
Had 2 days off for Union vacation, got some stuff done. Thanks for the nice
words to people. More later.
November 3, 2004
Huh. So, all the 'get the vote out', 'vote or die' & other assorted
voting-is-so-cool tee shirts were a catch phrase? Very close election but
what the hell, who voted for Bush? Oh that's right, you did. Shit.
Moral values as one of the most important issue to voters? That is funny.
November 2, 2004
I trust that those that vote have done so already. My prediction:
President John Kerry sends George Dubya Bush to Iraq to put his money where
his mouth is. Maybe not Iraq. Detroit, MI would be equally pleasant. Short
story about voting?
Was at the polls this morning, got
there @ 6:30AM - polls at 7:00AM. Waited in a massive line for an hour. And
I was one of the people at the beginning of the line(ish). A poll worker I
talked to for a sec mentioned that he had been doing the polls for the past
7 elections, 28 years, and had not seen a crowd like this first thing in the
morning-ever. Ann Arbor, MI is trying to pass a city-resolution re:
marijuana decriminalization. Currently, the fine is $100 for sale / use /
possession for under .25 ounce and is just a civil infraction. Trying to
pass a non-fine partition and also decriminalize it completely for people
that use it for medical uses as long as a doctor has ok'd it. That is
progressive thinking actuallyAlso on our ballot in MI is a resolution to
amend the state constitution to define marriage, make it only for a man + a
woman. This is a matter of civil rights, not about marriage. Assume this
will be struck down as it should. So, predictions: George Dubya moves to
Michigan after losing his job, moves to Flint, MI & tries his best to get
a-job-that-is-not-there while living with his partner, Dick C.
October 28, 2004
I hope that those of us that are well over 18 are registered & have made the
proper accommodations to vote for the lesser of two evils, Kerry/Edwards. I
try to not talk about religion or politics with people as a general rule &
would vote for whatever candidate would be better, republican or democrat or
independent. However, it blows my mind that anyone could honestly vote for
an insane, religious-fundamentalist cowboy & look themselves in the mirror.
Perhaps it is where I live but one of the only Bush/Cheney '04 lawn-displays
in Ann Arbor, MI was vandalized. Rather amusing.
October 27, 2004
The years 91-96 are exactly how the rest of the site will be like, except
for 1-2 shows that have file names that I have not got to yet. Takes a long
time, have only a certain amount of time to devote to this task but, hey, is
relaxing after a day of work... toss on a Tool CD or DAT & just do some
stuff. Keep the comments coming in for those that have ideas or input. More
October 17, 2004
Ok... site is back, on a limited
basis. Dates 91 - 98 are up, for the most part. 99-2002 dates are all down
as they are under massive construction. I had no plans to put this back
online being not finished but I have received more than enough random emails
of people saying, "what the hell happened'? So, here you are. Please note
that there approximately 50 recordings that I have either not had a chance
to do yet or there is info missing... I have all this written down & will be
fixing it on-the-fly. Have put in a lot of time, energy & resources into
You will notice that there are now MP3 samples of each show. This is to give
the user/collector more of an idea about a recording rather than just my
opinion. MP3 is not a format to trade shows. There are no
complete recordings or songs in MP3 that I have for download or in the
collection. There is nothing wrong with using MP3 for samples, which is why
they are available now, especially for this purpose. There are a myriad of
recordings that have incorrect source information or people do not know what
is what. I have taken immaculate care to triple-check everything that is
online now & is finished. The samples will hopefully help you.
I really hope people enjoy the new format/layout of the site. Any comments
or issues, let me know.
October 11, 2004
Appreciate the notes from people. As it is, the site is
simply down. I am devoting as much time as I can to it but there is only so
much I can do at one time. It is quality, not quantity. With the reviews, to
me, it is important that each has it's own moment of honesty & reflection.
Since there are a lot, a lot, of Tool recordings, this will continue to take
a while. I have confidence that the majority will find the upgrade of the
entire site to be beneficial, all things considered. Such as is one of my
favorite quotes from Dazed & Confused: "Hey - it's quality, not quantity,
man". Now, will this entire site redesign take a few months? No, I don't
think so, not at the rate I am going. Should be sooner.

Collective Unconscious.org is undergoing a massive site overhaul. As such,
only this update page will be up for the time being. Every page is and will
be altered. Mentioned some of this below so I will not waste my time to
re-explain it. I hope that at the completion of this task this site will be
even more helpful for the collector, fan & for the random person that lands
on this site. I do not have a date or real estimation of when
everything will be up. A few months, maybe longer or shorter. Not
sure. However, I will be keeping a bit of a log (of sorts) here & will put
up samples or examples to elicit user comments. Let me know. But for a
while, CU.org is off-line. If there is a question or comment, I can be
reached by email.
September 23, 2004
Quick one here, been working when I can on a massive site overhaul. Massive.
Every page will be affected. Thanks to Ricky R., wish I would
have found it years ago... for an example of new format, please refer to
07.25.92. Cheers for now.
September 15, 2004
Recently upgraded Web Site account. 20 GBs of space vs. 25
MBs. Am already working when I can to add something that has taken me years
to be in the position to do to further the ultimate goal of this site: to
serve as the most comprehensive reference for live recordings that are in
trade or know to be recorded / released Give it time, will all be worth it -
that I hope. Am in the process of updating each & every live recording page
+ source to triple check source info with hard copies & re-formatting the
pages. Since this is not a database-driven site, every page has to be done
manually - don't mind it though, is rather relaxing. All this to also,
be in accordance with the other
important & new addition. More on
that later. Work on this when I can...
B) Add Your Thoughts To Recordings - User
Do you have something to add about a
particular show, recording source or something significant about a past
experience at a Tool show? Upon much work & reflection, it seems that an
appropriate addition to this site is for it to be a little more interactive.
I think that each collector has an opinion & voice that is worth having out
there. I think it is important that each show get -not just- my take on the
recording or show. So, I am opening it up to everyone to contribute what
they want to. Just follow the format on the
user opinions page. I
have no idea how soon it will take it off or what response this will get.
Suppose it is time to test it out. So, since I get so many emails of people
talking about Tool stuff, let it all out.
September 7, 2004
A friend sent me a link to a site that had an
implication that there are sites that have incorrect source information or
just guess source information. I don't necessarily think that is true
unless someone is A) new B) just downloads stuff out of ease + possible
laziness or C) doesn't care. For the record, for those that may care, this
site has gone to extreme lengths to verify source information, taper
information, disc time information & other relevant info. If someone cannot
recognize that then that is fine, this site is free for the user, does not
make me any money what-so-ever, costs me $xx per month & takes up a shitload
of time. If I am going to do something, I am not going to do it
half-assed. However, there are certain people that, even if everything was
100% going their way, they would still find something to complain about.
This site openly shares information with other sites & other sites share
information with it as well. There are really only a few people who put in
effort and time into this Tool-site-thing & a whole bunch more people who
have little to do other than complain.
There are plenty of new updates coming including a
confirmed 93 VID that, for years, was listed as xx.xx.93. Also, some
new DATs, CDs & even a cassette source? Weird. Until that time - no need to
hold your breath.
August 07, 2004
Things have a tendency to slow down about this time of
year as far as the Tool-thing goes. Band is in the studio doing what they
do... APC reportedly has a new album coming out by November & some other
stuff including a remix album + DVD. As it is, that's ok - seems that lots
of us have more pressing things to contend with rather than Tool & their
live recordings. However, I still end up listening to at least 5 or so
complete shows per wek even if it is at work, which is actually quite
comforting "& something I enjoy quite a bit. Currently, my favorites are: . For those that may want
sort of a recommendation to check out/listen to via their collections, why
not? That would be this for now - more later.
July 7, 2004
Still down for trading on a limited basis. Am after DAT clones as a focus
now. As for trading, thing is, it seems that we are seeing another surge in
downloading (DL) in relation to Tool. Personally, that is not my thing.
Anyone can DL anything if they have a decent Net connection. I understand
where some collectors stand on DL as it is easier for trades at times &
formats like SHN or FLAC report to have no loss. Thing is, it seems to me to
be a hell of a lot less personal and increases the potential for mislabeled
shows. More importantly, what about recordings where someone other than the
taper puts the show for DL? What? Maybe some tapers are fine with it but,
come on, you must admit that shows some amount of lack-of-respect for many
tapers. If a taper wants to put his or her stuff up, great. if not, then why
do people still do it? I suppose that an argument could be made - what
about people just trading CDR copies? The difference is, I think, all about
access. I am all down for people sharing & enjoying the music but, I do mean
but, there are a lot of traders out there who are pretty much leeches who
only complain, do not add any new sources, are quite high-and-mighty in
attitude & have this perspective or sense of "entitlement" to recordings
that have taken some people over 8 years to attain <ahem>. Especially people
who have, no offense, not been collecting for a long time - just such a lack
of respect, it sucks. There are some great new people though, that is for
sure. To be honest though, there was an influx of traders from the Lateralus-era
which actually helped Tool's popularity - for that I am quite grateful. But
there are just these certain people that just want to take, take, take,
take, take, take. Ah well - such is life. I am not pointing anyone out at
all, it just seems that people are quite into stealth-tactics about Tool
trading. I don't get it. And, I suppose I don't really care too. I realize
that 90% of anyone that would actually read this diatribe would think "what
the fuck is this dude talking about" which is fine. Suppose I simply wanted
to air my frustration with the whole thing. Still, after these years I still
really enjoy it & there are some of the best that I've met over the years,
in no order: juxtaposition@"".com-Per-CatalystX-JeffToldyaCA-Snew-xxkornxx-Duncan-Distortion-Tyler-Armen-Bazille-Tapeworm-ryananderson-Muzik-JL-TravisS-DP-PFlorin-TDolister...
The masters section is
updated as well - for those that care that is.
In the process of moving
into our house. Very nice.
You may notice now that each & every source has either
"CD, 2CD, DAT, DVD, VHS, VCD" next to it. Before, the 1CD was implied and
then I realized that was confusing a lot of people. So, this should clear
that slight issue up & also make it a little bit easier, I hope.
After an exceedingly long
time, an update to the trading pool...90? Some of these have actually been
out for a while and a lot of these updates/shows have simply been done for
months. yes I do mean months. But hell if I'm going to do an update, may as
well do a very substantial one - at least this time! I do hope that this
will remain helpful for both fans & collectors. As a general note, each show
that is listed that has another source has also been updated with
information = only the new additions are listed. In other words, for
each show you see, there are at least 3 that have been modified or altered
on the site. I only hope that this information and my work will assist

Feb. 22, 2004
First, the following rant has nothing to do with a
specific trader or traders but is something that I have observed over the
course of trading over years... Allow me to ask a question.... why do people
collect live music from bands such as Tool? The answer, to listen to the
music bit getting whatever you can. We have all the albums, we have all the
t-shirts (well, I don't) & support the band in manners to which we can or
are able. So, in that sense, we are all United under an umbrella of mutual
appreciation for the same musical act. In a way, we are all friends. Now,
what I cannot understand is why there is so much hypocrisy about 'no trade,
no list' Tool recordings? For those that may not totally understand what I
mean, I am in reference to recordings that for some reason or another were
traded out & asked not to be traded again - that is a no trade (for
example). Now, if anyone has been in the trading scene (does that exist?)
for a while with this band, you will find that people/collectors are pretty
damn weird at times about random shit. Some are, some aren't. The fact of
the matter is, people are collectors of Tool & will take a 'no trade' show
just for the enjoyment of it even though they may actually not like having a
not for trade cd. Now, there are numerous reasons why stuff is specifically
for no trades; sometimes a good reason, sometimes not. For many tapers, they
want a 'no trade' on their masters so they can get something in return for
them from other collectors rather than sending a show to 3-4 people & try to
get a trade for it a few months later when anyone who has anything of
interest will already have the masters. That makes sense to me, no trade.
There are others where the recording is considered to be too valuable or
whatever, like a SBD, so that is a no-trade, no list. In other words, it is
all about the strings attached to stuff, you do not want to anger your
friends, do you? To the point, from experience with several people who have
spoken their mind regarding their "dislike for no list, no trade", I have
found that they each have items of a no list, no trade nature. At the same
time, they attempt to create incendiary situations for others. Thus, I would
really enjoy seeing everything from these people's lists out into open
trading instead of attempting to display your disdain for the same acts
which you participate in. Now, in an ideal trading scene or world, there
would not be any of these stupid rules associated with a simple hobby -
trading. I honestly wish that there were not any of these damn conditions.
There are a number of items I for one would very much like to trade out but
cannot due to strings. Maybe one day those strings will either disintegrate
or be cut.

Jan 19, 2004
Well, after an exhausting bit of research in order to
hopefully pull out some new Tool sources/recordings/shows, there seems to be
a few gems mixed with much shite. The reason I did this research is for 2
reasons: A) to come up with new material & B) to find out what "bootleg"
Tool shows are being sold or are the most common to sellers. Utilizing U.S.
record/collecting magazines/journals such as the 'Goldmine' in order to
compile a list of possible sellers/collectors who seem to be -currently-
publicly active, in some fashion, the list is exceedingly small. I've
emailed & looked over 400 sellers, retailers, collectors, traders, etc not
from the Tool community with a simple message not identifying who I am over
the course of the past few months, in my limited spare time. But, this was a
task I've been curious about for a while. For those that are interested, I
used an entire year of the Goldmine, a few random LP/vinyl journals,
countless websites & other illicit sellers of live material. Here are the
highlights of my subjective findings:
Not sure why I did all of this, to be honest. Maybe
it was just curiosity, but the heart of it was to un-earth some stuff that
hadn't found the light of day. Thing is, I didn't find much. People who sell
stuff like this just do not have anything a collector worth 2 cents wouldn't
already have. What I find most surprising is that shows that are SHN or even
MP3 (from Napster days) seem to not have shown up on bootleg sellers lists.
In a way, that is good news. The only thing that I find odd is the Coachella
festival show, that has the possibility of being a product of the digital
generation but I have no way to know. I didn't buy it...
Contrary to popular belief, the amount of people who
have live Tool material for "bootleg" selling are very, very small. The most
common bootleg recordings sold or offered for sale are as follows. Please
note that out of the 1,400 people I contacted, only a very small percent,
5%, had any Tool items & the items that they do have are very limited & all
seem to have the same shows! The following are not in order but are the most
A = Dirge/Vagina Whistles/Cullen Auditorium ---
mislabeled as 12.12.96
B = Demented -- 05.02.92 (audio
C = Coachella 99
D = Bottom Feeder - 07.14.98 (I
found this surprising!)
E = 013 Club - 05.24.01 (unknown which
F = Sleep Forever/Tales from the Dark side/Opium Den ---
various 93 bootlegs incl Tool's Power
G = <only a handful of other
Note, this finding does not count eBay.
bootlegged/sold bands are:
A = Beatles (incl solo careers)
B = Rolling Stones
C = Led Zeppelin
C = Van Morrison
D = Doors

A belated Happy 2004 - here's to at least 20 more 'High'
alerts for US citizens. Sarah & I are having a nice time relaxing & spending
time. Start my new job tomorrow, sweet!
There are quite a few things that I have thoughts
about regarding trading & traders in general but am only going to mention
that I wish more people were like the few people I've been dealing with.
Thanks. At any rate, APC is coming around again soon & there are rumors of
a new Tool album before too long, hard to have a problem with that.

Probably the last update of the year & a short one at that.
Happy Holidays to all.
would like to hear 3 MP3's of A Perfect Circle's performance at Grand
Rapids, MI @ The DeltaPlex,
click here & follow
the tour journal to 12.09.03. I recorded the show CSB>M1 (Ode) Front of
Stack - Right, came out nicely. Thanks to Skwerl at apc.net for hosting mine
& numerous other taper's MP3's.

After a very long time, an update.
Realize that not all that
much has been around here with lack of updates & whatnot. Life, wife and
career have a tendency to over-ride anything online I could possibly do as a
hobby. But, over the course of a few months, I have actually been putting
some thought into the website as a whole. Although there are numerous
additions to this site, some seen & some behind-the-scenes (listed below), a
main addition involves the listing of all known Tool shows known to have
been performed along with the known recordings in circulation. The
recordings in circulation are in the same color + format as before. The gigs
that apparently have no known recordings are in dark red. The
combination of the recordings in circulation with the listing of all known
Tool gigs is the next logical step for this site.
I truly do hope
that other collectors & Tool fans will find this addition helpful.
I've been doing a great deal of research here in Michigan & the surrounding
areas; making contact with local venues & whatnot -- came up with a couple
dates that Tool played in 1992 as well as a with a plethora of other bands
here in MI & OH. Also, found an individual who claims to have been working
as a bartender for a couple different bars in 1991 who saw Tool as he worked
and, apparently, taped one of them. Time will tell on this subject. But, my
point is, the information is out there - you just have to look for it.
The site additions are as
*New pick on home & index
*New home page options
Additions: Vinyl Scans (Tool + APC), Maynard Quotes (Maynardisms) &
*Buttons for the main links
*Updates: FAQ, Informal, vide,
vary, rules, trade, master x, 'claim, point
*New shows, fixed random show
info & design... approx 60 - 70
*Wedding pictures (our site)
the scenes: Updates on loads of shows, random pages & whatever other info
was needing to be fixed

Believe it or not, I've been working on this site as much as I can over the
past few months. There are some new sections that are done as well as quite
a bit or new shows, sources & other stuff. One small update is that on all
the main pages, there are buttons like the 'updates' above. After this
semester ends, my current job finsihes I will have some nice time off from
responsibility until early Jan. It's cold here in MI. Other than spending
time with my wife, updating this site is the only thing I have planned.
Sweet, eh? Should be within 2 weeks.
Upgraded my recording
equipment. My new format is
DAT --- Sony PCM-M1 (Oade Bros Mod II)
with either Core Sound Binaural or Soundman OKMIIR. Good stuff.
Oct. 12, 2003
Took out the overwhelming majority of 'no-trade' - clauses.
So, if there was something that was once 'no trade', chances are it is for
trade now. Exclusions are the shows that were specifically requested that I
not trade by the taper or collector. For those that want to know, the only
shows that are still 'no trade' are: Detroit '94 & DP's 09.30.02 & 10.15.02.
All other shows that are not generally available have the taper's contact
email or web-page.
Oct. 10, 2003
Believe it or not, a huge -massive- update is on it's way. Give me time
Sept. 19, 2003
All has been good.
album is a very interesting comment upon boundaries and values and self
More Tool stuff but no time to list now. Soon, I hope.
August 26, 2003
Not too much new. Have a second so simply making a note
here. Univ starts again for Sarah & I.
puppy last week; half German Shepherd & half Terrier. Will be a good dog.
Our cat adjusts.
a terribly lame virus that sends out large .if files & self replicates
itself if you DL it. Don't open it. Delete.
APC has been doing some cool things out on Lollapalooza.
Shame it is all over. Look for the Fall tour.
Saw Radiohead last Thursday, definitely
one of the best shows I've ever seen. Check them out.
August 17, 2003
Been a while since I've done anything to this page. No time
online, barely any for trading. Such is life.
B) A few new Tool shows, different sources & stuff like that.
Will add once I have time.
Pretty much my master section is all I've been working on and keeping
updated. Think this site is now how I want
it to be, the Tool part I mean. Put in a lot of work & whatnot, time to
relax & enjoy being married as I have been.
Will be posting some pictures from the wedding & cruise &
whatnot once we get a chance. So, if you are real creepy
perhaps you will look. Also, thank you to all that emailed me wishing
congratulations & whatnot - very cool. Sarah
I do appreciate it. Our wedding was absolutely perfect. Nothing went wrong
at all. Best.
Have plans to add another section to this site - vinyl. Basically, I collect
Tool vinyl & it's come to my attention that
not everyone has seen all the different versions of vinyl that has been
issued over the years. So, I shall scan & give
relevant information on each release in a rather detailed manner. A lot like
the live CD listings. So, look for that
sometime. But like everything, it shall
take some time.
Taped A Perfect Circle on 08/09/03. Great set. Maynard is a little drama
queen or something. No smoking is one
thing but security which prevented at least
half the people from seeing the opening act is another entity all together -
bullshit. St. Andrews -never- searches nor has security but for APC they
certainly did. Saw a guy with the band
tackle some kid who was trying to sneak in a
recording device. Seriously, tackled him outside the venue. Completely
out of control & quite unnecessary.
Added my review + setlist & other info in masters section.
G) And for those that contact
me for trades; I am very slow these days. Be patient. And, I am only looking
Soundboards, vinyl copies of albums & master
recordings - and, any Tool show I do not have. Not interested in
July 19, 2003
Wedding is here. Today. Excited beyond belief; most
important day I will have. Am blessed by an Angel.
B) Been working on my master section. About 90% of all shows
have been reviewed & whatnot. Look if you want.
C) Will not be online for a
few weeks. Take care. It's late, I need to sleep, big day tomorrow.
D) Big thanks to all who have
wished Sarah & I well...
June 29, 2003
Wedding is close now. 20 days...Going to Lollapalooza on
July 5 in Indiana with my best men for my bachelor party.
B) Been working on wedding stuff, work & school. Making my way
through my masters.
C) Have some excellent stuff. Most is rare, not listing it.
But, here is some other 'new' stuff
June 15, 2003
5 weeks from today, I will be the happiest fell on Earth.

time right now.

Memorial Day weekend. Time off of work & relaxation with
your better half. Nothing better. Thank you, troops.
B) Added more master
recordings. My best men are taking me to the first 2 gigs of Lollapalooza
for taping fun. Sweet.
Added all video sources with the CD lists. Now, both
video & audio are in one place. Vid section updated as well.
D) There is a bunch of stuff
I have been updating sporadically, everything is now up. Too many
corrections to list.

Wow. Exactly 3 months until our, Sarah & myself, wedding
day. Can't wait. Time has been very fast.
Have some new stuff but no time to really deal with it for now. Will be
listed soon enough. This site is
now, basically, a resource for traders & not
a trading site.
I have completely stopped trading. Unless you have something rare or a
master, chances are I will not really
want anything & will not reply to email
regarding that subject. Sorry. Again, if you do have something very
rare, give me the information & perhaps we
can work something out. Certain exceptions are made.
D) I am not really going
anywhere but my time online has dwindled to next to nothing so I feel it is
only fair to
make this situation perfectly clear
to anyone who is interested.
E) Now that I have pretty much stopped this all, I feel a need
to get some shit off my mind regarding many traders
in the community. I am bummed out by certain individual's) & the trading
scene in general. These days, many
traders (Lateralus era) have been collecting the live recordings just to
collect everything. I know
numerous traders who
do not even listen to half the stuff they get. This is fine, some of the
better traders I've
known do this - that is ok.
But, other traders, shall I refer to them as -bulk- traders, do not have the
same type of
respect for the music as other
people. I know lots of people are fans of SHN, for example, as it is a
Now, me, 5 of my 2001 recordings were traded out to
people back in the day & they ended up in SHN, MP3 &
other formats...even TAO. There are -tons- of other taper's shows that have
reached the same fate in various formats.
What I don't understand is why these bulk traders & all take other people's
works & convert to other formats. If
wanted his or her works in that format, they would do that themselves. I do
not feel it is anyone else's role
to do such
actions. Many people have asked me why I don't (now) trade out all of my
masters & when I do trade
out masters, why I do
a 'no trade' on them. That should explain it all. Also, the various other
shows I have which
are 'no trade', did all of
the taper's ask that of me? No. Some were more recent, new, tapers & I knew
same fate of my 2001 shows would fall
onto their recordings as well if I did not take proper action.
G) This is a short list of
some of the best traders I have had the pleasure to deal with. I highly
There are some people I am
un-intentionally leaving off so, apologies to you. List is in no order.
April 8, 2003
Next few weeks, have one show every week to attend & tape. Should be fun.
B) Not much new to surface that
is 'printable' except a few shows, none for trade as I need to check
them out first:
10.26.02 DVD <single view>
Apparently, on some browsers, my site looks like shit. The
text is fucked up & everything is nasty looking.
I am doing my best to try & rectify this situation. If anyone has any ideas,
let me know. This is usually on
which use Win 95 + 98. Always use MSIE for this site...
March 29, 2003
If anyone claims to have 10.11.01 as CSB>DAT -- Check the disc times;
they are actually MD!!!
Added setlist scans to a bunch of gigs, thanks Adam B.
C) Updated master-list.

of some stuff I'm not listing... the stuff to make your head spin.

Massive update on all (but a couple of 2002 shows) of the source info +
reviews of everything listed below. Look.
Things are quiet. Work, school, little trading & wedding stuff occupy my
time. I am happy.
March 03, 2003
Taking a down-turn on Tool (spiral out). Been catching
up on Yanni.
B) Sorry for lack of updates & for dragging ass in trades, I
was sick for a while.

Had a weird day at work. One of my clients told me he
was "Christ, bleeding on the cross." I said "No, the only
one who bleeds for you is you." Working with paranoid-schizophrenics adds
an interesting element to one's day.

Some very nice stuff in. Too bad, these days, I don't even
list some of the rarities as people bitch about me holding
out as I won't trade them. Out of sight, out of mind then....
B) New Shit, -all- are 1st Gens +
audio. These are listed in the directory but no review. Expecting much more

Love is in the air. Valentine's Day. I of course forgot
about making reservations so I need to devise a new plan for
the night. Shit.
I finally have the site the way I want it to look now &
I'm not trading openly. So, hopefully, this site will be a
good, solid resource for traders. I hope...that was my plan all along.
C) Started new job working w/mentally, emotionally &
physically disabled adults as a job coach & recreation planner.
A little depressing, in a way, but really rewarding on another level. Not a
job I will do forever but is great for
experience. Once I get my masters, I shall be doing more real counseling.

fast. Gone through a lot of change.
Starting now, all new shows will be listed by dates only so people can see
what is new.
C) Damn. Well, 2 people got all the answers correct to the

Jan. 06, 2003
Although I do apologize for closing down the site for the
past month, I have been busy (very) with updating
every single CD, VHS & DVD recording. Features now available on over 350
Back buttons to take the reader to the year of choice
Updated + Corrected source info
Updated + Corrected Multiple disc separation (between disc 1 + 2)
Each page is centered, new year pictures, global -black- background
B) Answers for the contest
are up. Go to Contests section, compare your answers then email me via
I do hope that many fans, tapers, traders & generally
interested people will use this site not as a guide to -every-
Tool show performed but as a resource of the recordings that are out there.
Please, compare disc times & show
do not blindly copy or plagiarize this site. I re-listened to everything I
have to give the most accurate
description's) I could
possibly give. Please, enjoy.
There are about 60 new shows
that are up throughout the years that did not have info before. They are too
numerous to list here. Every description has
more info or changed/corrected info so you may want to take a look.
