    Tool never fail to amaze me
    three tracks from their new album are meant to be played simultaneousy.

    first, playlist these two in this order on winamp or whatever:
    Viginti Tres
    Wings for Marie (Pt 1)

    and play this one at exactly the same time, with a different media player or your cd player:
    10, 000 Days (wings Pt 2)

    it will only work properly if done exactly, the singing synchs completely at the end so you can tell if you did it correct.

    there's lots of theory behind it.. http://spo0nman.blogspot.com/2006/05/tool-10000-days-review.html
    read the first response to that awful review to see more.

    well, i went past 5000 songs in just over 3 months.

    and 7.88% of that was spent listening to Tori Amos

    thats a bit much for just one artist. but i only just discovered her, and for a tori amos fan, i'm comparatively apathetic towards her.

    Bjork comes a close second with 6.84% ...

    the next 5000 will be more spread out(maybe)
