I admire the Da Vinci Code style attempt at guessing the band!!

Not Tool or Yes though - nice try!

Shouldn't there have been some sort of announcement by now?

Did anyone else think something would be announced 12 hours after that ticking clock video was posted?

Maybe it's being published by Over The Edge?
Hef is right on all things. Except for when I disagree with him. In which case he's probably still right.

Last night I dreamed that the new album, the Luna Park DVD and the newest edition of this book along with a bunch of other stuff (autographed sticks, picks, posters, t-shirts) were released together in a mega package. I ordered it from Amazon for $200.


Sycsa is perhaps the most brilliant and insightful man I have ever encountered.

 :o

That's magnificent news, Mr. Wilson! Really great to hear that! Can we then assume that the new edition of the book will be released togeter (that is in a similar timeframe, not in the same package) with either the DVD or the new album? :)

Yep, and 5YIALT in the Mirror from Awake. At this res there are a few things I can't quite identify, but it seems as if everything is represented. I think the bird is from Greatest Hit even?
Not to mention the Photoshopping is much more seamless than on the DT covers....
Only King could mis-spell a LETTER.
Yep. I think the only party in the MP/DT situation that hasn't moved on is DTF.

Yes, Scott has done an incredible job with the cover!

There will be a full release of info in the coming week or so, but basically, we are hoping to have this released in the beginning of September, with ordering available well before then. They'll be doing a pre-order discount too.

The delay has been down to making sure we could produce this at reasonable cost and make sure that we could ship it worldwide as cheaply as possible. One of the issues was the postage costs for previous versions, so we've tried our best to solve that. Don't mis-read that as it being a cheap and nasty paperback, as it really isn't!! It's just a LONG book in terms of pages and words, so there are printers out there who were taking the p*** in terms of production costs!

Anyway, we're nearly there now, so I'll release more when I know more!!

Make a magnified copy of the ADTOE booklet, cut out the unicyclist and stick it somewhere on your poster with some tape. It's what Hugh Syme would do  :metal

I have it on a T-Shirt. Yeah, I recognized it right away, I just wasn't sure if maybe it was a variation on previous versions of the book or something.

If I remember right, the original designer was SteveTheater, right?

It's definitely awesome that the unicyclist has been added!

Edit: ...or maybe it was SetlistScotty! I don't know how I got the usernames confused. Whoops, lol! Good job again!

But...but...but that's what I did.  :-[  Are you saying I'm Hugh Syme now?   :biggrin:

Truth be told, some of the elements have been shifted around a little bit to make sure that they all fit within the boundaries of the cover (being portrait style, instead of landscape style which is what the original image was). But yeah, otherwise it's pretty much what was on the Black Clouds and Silver Anniversary poster and T-shirt.   :)  Glad to see it getting used again, and for something as appropriate as the biography! Thanx again Rich for choosing to use it!
As a basic rule, if you hate it, you must solely blame Portnoy. If it's good, then you must downplay MP's contribution to the band as not being important anyway, or claim he's just lying. It's the DTF way.

Well it's an awesome job. And not wishing to disrespect Hugh Syme, but when you look at some of his stuff, this is leagues ahead. I've been sat on this art for over a year now whilst we finished everything on the book, so I'm really happy that I can reveal it now!

I know you said that the details are coming soon, but I just wanted to confirm that the "Side Projects" section was cut for this release (so that I know to hold onto my current edition AND buy the new one!).

Thanks Rich!

That's correct - the "Dreaming Aside" chapter which covered all the side-projects has got the chop to make room for all the new stuff!
