El Stevo Posted April 20, 2006 Share Posted April 20, 2006 Vicarious means either "experienced or gained through someone else" or "done on behalf of others". Jambi is the name of a province of Indonesia, as well as the name of the wish-granting genie character who lived inside a TV on the show Pee-wee's Playhouse. "Marie" is the middle name of Maynard James Keenan's deceased mother, Judith Marie Keenan. As Keenan explains on commentary on aMOTION, his mother suffered a stroke that left her partially paralyzed and wheelchair-bound. The length of time between her paralysis and her death was 27 years, or approximately 10,000 days.  It was recently revealed in an Adam Jones interview with Guitar World that one of the lyrics on the album to the song "The Pot" is "Who are you to wave the finger?" Jones confirmed the meaning of the lyric as the "pot calling the kettle black". The Lipan are an Apache tribe, known as the "Tall Grass People". An April 7 post on toolband.com specifically mentions Dr. Albert Hofmann, the "father" of LSD, stating that on that date he synthesized LSD. The Rosetta Stone is a granite stone found in Egypt; the stone was the key to deciphering the hieroglyphs; it was also used as a pseudonym for children's author Dr. Seuss. "Viginti Tres" is Latin for "Twenty Three" - the number has a lot of historical, mathematical, and occult significance, as well as in American slang, where "23 skidoo" means to leave a place quickly. There is a hidden message about a minute and a half into "Intension." The vocals sound reversed, and when played, the phrases "work hard," "stay in school," "listen to your mother," "your father is right" can be heard. See but you can hear the judder when those bands do it. It's like an episode of Lost! Thanks for posting all that though, it's interesting. The Pot is blatantly a weed reference although there is a bit of pot/kettle in there as well. I didn't know the album title was about his mum, that's quite sad. Having listened to it some more I feel it's pretty solid but it hasn't captivated me like the others have. There's still time though. I haven't noticed a weird atmosphere horribleman, but I think I'll concentrate a bit harder now! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
