It doesn't really imply that either of those are the cover. They could be inside pages of the booklet, where we definitely have seen band members before.

Well, on the one hand it looks pretty fucking real. A little weird, but no more so than the picture of the band on Aenema, I suppose.

On the other hand, if it was real and some guy from a music shop did have it it seems highly unlikely that his would be the only music shop which got it and, therefore, we would probably be hearing leaks by now. We aren't... so I am suspicious. Perhaps he was lying about how he got the image but it is the real artwork nonetheless?

Okay so today I was talking to someone who said the artwork was really nice. I didn't think he was serious, yet, I asked for proof, which he gave me by uploading two different (huge) scans from the booklet. That's still the big problem: how can artwork be THAT big...

Anyways there are two pics, the maynard one is the first, the second one is with a head-baby. I already send the URL to someone on this board a few hours ago to check if it was a fake, and he said he hadn't seen it before. I'll post it here but edit it out in 2 minutes. GO

and gone. That was actually 2 minutes and 27 seconds.

the symbol on the bottom half is larger on the 1st one, but smaller on the second. See it for yourself.

I've uploaded both to another source, by the way.

czar
04-11-2006, 08:19 AM
If the image was scanned at 600DPI and it was 5 inches tall, the image would be 3000pixels on the monitor.. which is much larger than any normal resolution height.

It's very simple.

A 3x5 photo scanned with a very good scanner at 1500DPI would yield a huge picture on a computer monitor (along with filesize).

BTW: Looks totally real.

Did you see the name 10,000 Days on the artwork anywhere? Because it could prove something.

The Source said the album name is 10.000 days. So if you said this in the hope that there would be another name: Sorry but no.

I somehow believe that too, it looks real, and pretty cool, by the way. Plus, noone said that the official artwork posted on toolband was the actual album cover. So, as for now - I think that we are looking at the album's booklet.

As KJM has stated, I am an idiot.

Now that we have that out of the way, can you guys tell me how the fuck you see these stereograms?
I "cross" my eyes and everything is unrecognizable.
If I treat it like those 3-D stereograms with the crazy colors, I never get the pics to over lay.
Am I fuckin' retarded or what?


Thought so.

Just cross your eyes so that the images overlap, tilting your head so that they match up exactly. You might have to move towards or away from the screen, too. I finally managed to get it, but now I feel dizzy and nauseated. It's seriously worth it, though; this is really well done.

I don't really see how this shows what you say it does at all. Is Maynard in the picture holding up a sign that says "the album is not called ten thousand days, and these are the only four images in the packaging so the art we posted was fake too" and I just don't see it?

Gajarigon

Not really. It is in fact a scan from the middle of the booklet (or somewhere near the middle) as you can see at the edges: it's gonna be a 30-pages booklet or something. No lyrics featured though :(.

And singles don't have booklet, so it has to be the album.

I didn't say the album name... I suppose I should have expressed more detail in my claim. I meant the album art that was given on the "album-mini". Doesn't look like it ties in at all with those leaked images, if they are real.

That isn't the cover. It's an "album-mini". It was posted on Toolband.com, and an explanation of what it is. It is not the "album cover", it is just a representation of the album to tide over retailers to put on their product listing until the album is released.

I would speculate that if the representation of 10,000 Days and the "fool" logo is the image we all see on Amazon.com and this leak is indeed real, then we are looking forward to an album that probably is not entitled 10,000 Days. (I believe this was mentioned a few posts above me citing the same evidence).

But what does it matter. We got only 3 weeks to go.

I reckon the Alex gray "cover" could also been an anti-leak measure. If people wanted to leak/steal the new tool album before it releases, they'd probably have seen the "album cover". So they will be looking for this non-exsistant cd cover, while the real tool album could be Aenima/Undertow style, just the artwork and no words on the cover.

Yeah really. I've been skeptical myself lately, but it gets to a point where this kind of stuff pretty much has to start leaking. And we're at that point. Think about it, the album will be released in Australia in 17 days.

Do you guys have any idea of how long it will take to print the millions (ok, probably at least a million) of booklets that they'll need for the worldwide release? Even once it's all printed, it has to be sent to be packaged together with the jewel case and the CD itself. This stuff takes time.

Given these ideas and the fact that the picture with Maynard would be extremely hard to fake (although not entirely impossible), I'd say being skeptical at this point is a little overboard.

Well it is a dark-haired mohawk, and from that distance the picture was taken you really wouldn't see much of a dark mohawk against the black background in the mirror. And there is an image overlay of the woman on the mirror, so the mohawk would be underneath it, nullifying the argument that the mohawk isnt on top of the white areas of the woman.

But anyways IMO the second picture could be construed as being political (which would go along nicely with what we have heard about the album so far).

It looks like MJK is making fun of the stereotypical politician - wearing a business suit, looking very important at his desk, and toasting his wine glass to the end of the world perhaps?

[...], obviously two different pics.

We've gathered that. :-P

What is this you speak of?

Stereoscopic imaging. It's all over Adam's mySpace... search Google for it.

this is real!!! har har har

especially since adam's jonesing over stereoimaging lately as well as the fact that Blair told us that we'd KNOW it was real when we saw it. You can't fake a Maynard

It looks different because of the special stereo effect, nothing amazing about putting circles, they're meant to be there.
I think he's trying to show people who said it's two of the same picture that they are, in fact, two different pictures.

First thing that popped into my head, no pun intended, was the Alex Grey backdrop Tool used for the Lateralus tour.

That's pretty much the album-mini and the skulls.

It's the same thing taken/rendered with the concept that there are two cameras right beside each other taking the picture at the exact same time, with the slight variety of the viewing angle, once you know how to focus your eyes properly it gives you the perfect field of depth effect.

anyone else think that weird perspective image thats supposedly the artowrk could be made into a stereoscopic image

i know the eyes go in weird ways on the face and maybe if you cross your eyes with two images they form something

Oh I know they're stereo images, but someone in this thread said that it was two of the same exact pictures (as in, not different angles) and I thought that tcM_Emperor was just trying to show that they are stereo images.

Woah! So maynard dresses up to mock politicians, with the world trade center in the background? Fucking sweet.


It would be even better if Tool would do a cover of "imagine" by John Lennon. I guess I'm just a dreamer, though...

A) It's not the World Trade Center.

B) APC already did "Imagine" and it sucked. I hope you are joking around.

Also notice how maynard's chair is at a slightly different angel on both sides, obviously two different pics.

If you really look at them, there are subtle differences all over the place. It's these little mutations that give it the illusion of depth when you view it correctly.

You would need the stereo image of the photo that's been posted already. Anything can, in theory, be made into a stereoscopic image. I would imagine that it'll be a very heavy theme in the booklet.

Personally, I think the stereoscopic fetus-skull is better than the shot of Maynard... it really vibes when you get it in full focus!

Both the images are pretty poor examples of stereoscopic imaging. A really good example is this image: http://www.ray3d.com/graphics/riversit-med.jpg

Granted it features a naked chick, but if you look at the leaves in the tree compared to her and then compare her to the water, it looks like its layered with shadows and 3d-like. These album examples aren't doing that as much.

because it isnt confirmed by a reliable source (in the case of tool, the band itself and their management/record label are the only trusted sources)

besides, that picture of maynard could be from anywhere...it could be an unused photo from a magazine shoot, it could be a promo shot for his winery, it could be a lot of things...and the skull fetus is very derivative of adam's work over the last 10 years

Basically, just look at the images and cross your eyes until you see both of them collide in between each other, and then they will take form.

This is how it works best for me...

Get roughly 2 feet from the monitor and cross your eyes slowly until you see 3 images instead of 2. Once you get the 3rd, middle image, focus in on it.

Be warned, after you do it it takes a few minutes to get your normal focus back.

Cross your eyes until you see three images. You just gotta focus on the middle one.

czar, that is a great example!
