For anyone who lives in Pasadena, CA (or near there). You know those signs that are put up when a movie is being filmed, usuallu neon sings with one or two words on them pointing the way to the movie set? Well, before Lateralus came out, those sings were all over pasadena with Tool stickers on them, pointing towards some studio in old town pasadena (which I later found out was where post production is done on Tool videos). I just went through Pasadena today, and as I got off the freeway on the corner of Fair Oaks and Corson St. there was a bright neon sign, with an arrow pointing down the street with A Tool sticker on it! This tells me that their finishing up the video.

(Kind of an obscure post, I apologize.)

Yeah, I'll go tomorrow and take a pic of it. Hope someone doesnt take it! Well, there's probably a ton of them around. A friend of mine grabbed one last time. I used to work at this coffee shop that was right around the corner from where they do their videos and on my day off of all days, Adam and Maynard came into my work to get coffee. So yeah, that sucked. Anyway, the sticker is black oval shaped with Tool in a cursive-ish font. How would I post the pic (nevermind, photobucket duh)

Yeah it sucked. My friend Lenny was working that day (this is at The Equator Cafe in old town pasadena, and the studio they do their production at (I think) is called Fire something). He was rubbing it in my face for a month. Another cool thing happened to me there. Right before APC put out Mer De Noms, I had received an advance copy of it and was playing it at the cafe. And this dude comes up to me and starts talking about the cd. When I ask him his name, he tells me Kabir. And I'm like, not the Kabir, and he's like... yeah. I had him show me his liscence. It was him, or at least someone else named Kabir

Since we're gonna do this... about 2 months ago, I was in Seattle and I went to hail a cab, but when it stopped for me, I looked back and realized Maynard and Justin had been hailing the same cab. I got the hell out of the way, of course, then they looked at each other and laughed then Maynard asked me where I was going. I said I was on my way to the ferry terminal, and he said it was the right direction, and said I could share the cab. I was so nervous... but of course I got in... and we were driving, doing some terrifying small-talk and....... and........... and Maynard and Justin RAPED ME... *breaks down crying*

I live in Pasadena too.

I've seen these signs. They're posted at the exits of the Freeways.

Yeah, their video post place is in Pasadena and I saw the signs for the previous videos.

I don't think it's the Firehouse (which is right down the alley and across the street from the Equator). That place is a SUPER posh recording studio I've been to a few times. Unaware of any video post work going on there. Of course they could be working on the audio post end of it there.

However Screaming Lobster was in Pasadena. No longer exists under that name. But I believe they still use the same space. Lots of graphics/video post studios in Old Town.

Nice, someone to corroborate my story. Whereabouts in Pasadena do you live? I think that studio they goto for the video shit is one street south of Green, next to some internet cafe'. I think.

And since you all are doing the guess who I've met. I've met no one from Tool :( But I did meet everyone from APC (excluding Maynard) and Josh Frees recorded the drums for a band I used to play in (big deal, anyone can hire him for $1000 a song). So that was cool. I shook his hand, and I'm sure he's shaked Maynards hand, which of course has touched Maynard's Dick, so essentially, Iv'e touched Maynards dick.

Get your shit straight, it wasnt considered a fake. It was considered unverified. Just like the Andy King review originally was. What we have in this thread is not information concerning the new album. It is someone noticing something in the town where videos are produced. When we get verification on that email, it will be allowed. Protecting names and radio stations? Sorry.

And if this guys bullshitting, so what?

Usually, at least with movie sets, the signs are used to direct the crew or anyone else involved with the film to the location.

I live right across the street on the east side of Caltech. Near Hill street.

That makes sense about the studio. Next to the Firehouse is in fact another company. You can't see it from the street (Dayton). . . but behind the Firehouse Recording Studios gates is a large courtyard. Off to the side is another studio. Which I guess does video post/VFX stuff.

I have a feeling they shot stuff there too (or were working on early VFX shots). . . because I first saw a sign back in early September. Just after the Rose Bowl. It was posted at the Fairs Oaks off ramp from the 134. I remember because I was sitting in Rose Bowl traffic staring at it. I also saw one at the Hill St. exit.

Isn't this usually the case? When we do get a pic it's pretty pathetic so maybe it's better this way. This news really doesn't give us much anyway.

Thanks for taking the pics, but this guy is right. That sign does not have anything to do with the Tool music video. It looks like that is a company that makes short films. See the website above.

I knew that sign wasn't for the band Tool at first glance. How could you have thought that Tool would have written their name in that font? Anyway, it seems that the nonsensical "No Christianity" tatoo is a testament to your intelligence. Sorry, I had to point that out.

Wow, this is the first time I've logged on since I posted the pics, and what's this about a disturbed tattoo? no christianity tattoo (It's Bad Religion by the way). Regardless... I know for a fact that these signs led to where Tool does post production on their videos. 5 years ago, before Lateralus, they led to the same spot that these signs led to. I followed them, they don't lead to any TOol of North America whatevers. Same place. So, let's just leave it a mystery.... It's possibly (though would seem wierd (wierd = Toolish)) that Tool used this logo for principles of anonymity, no? Well, either way, like I said before, my friend grabbed one 5 years ago, I grabbed this one, so now its officially a tradition (for me). And what makes my tattoos a reason not to get tattoos? lame comment.

Yeah it sucked. My friend Lenny was working that day (this is at The Equator Cafe in old town pasadena, and the studio they do their production at (I think) is called Fire something). He was rubbing it in my face for a month. Another cool thing happened to me there. Right before APC put out Mer De Noms, I had received an advance copy of it and was playing it at the cafe. And this dude comes up to me and starts talking about the cd. When I ask him his name, he tells me Kabir. And I'm like, not the Kabir, and he's like... yeah. I had him show me his liscence. It was him, or at least someone else named Kabir

hey nice! i remember that - i feel like that was YEARS ago, but i totally remember that. i have been there once since then, but i live in silverlake so i don't get out that way too often.
