Alex Grey on Rosetta Stoned

Has this been posted?
Anyway, I went to the Alex Grey talk on Friday and he said that Rosetta Stoned was about a friend of the band's who went out camping near Area51, took some acid, tripped, woke up and found himself covered in shit in his sleeping bag, and was weirded out by the whole thing. This probably sheds zero light on the song (it didn't to me when he told this story) but I thought someone might be interested anyway.
Good night.

Re: Alex Grey on Rosetta Stoned

It was a good evening, Alex is an amusing chap. I wonder whether this 'friend' was...him.

The friend is probably Blair. Seriously, if you read the Tool newsletter archives you will see he goes there to camp.

Re: Alex Grey on Rosetta Stoned

That might be a hoax. The phrase "shit the bed" is one I've heard for many years, it is either used to express amazement (Kobe scored 50? Well, shit the bed!) or to acknowledge a mistake (I forgot my pen. Shit the bed again! Typical!).

Uhhh... I've NEVER heard that phrase before, except when someone actually shits the bed.

Re: Alex Grey on Rosetta Stoned

good call...a little evidence for the jury. I'd shit the bed if the song was literally about somebody that shit the bed. If anybody can prove it is though lemme know so I can put the rubber sheets on the bed.

You've left me no choice but to go inside and rebuild

Re: Alex Grey on Rosetta Stoned

I think "Shit the bed" is used in both ways in the song.

Re: Alex Grey on Rosetta Stoned

after rereading the March newsletter i have come to the conclusion that what Mr. Alex Grey is talking about is truth...

take a look at this line for example at the end of the March Newsletter:

"And now, Dave, too, was dialing in wave-lengths. But I had to wonder whether or not if he ever managed to separate the true vibrations from the discords if someone would have to change him like a baby."

maybe im reading too deep into it, but immediatley i thought of how babies shit themselves, and that blair is hinting at how dave shit himself. seems like something blair would do.

Here's a pretty good thread on what happened from a NIN board.
