It’s been ten long years since Tool has officially released any new music, though a new album has been discussed for months by the band. Today, we have yet another glimpse inside this possible new release, though it comes from a friend of the band: Buzz Osborne. The Melvins frontman wrote a piece for Team Rock highlighting the Melvins’ best albums, and mentioned a bit of gossip that he heard from Tool’s own Adam Jones.According to Osborne, “Bands like Tool obviously spend about six months on their albums, and they’ve spent about ten years putting together the new one. And they haven’t even started recording yet, but Adam [Jones, Tool guitarist] told me the shortest song they’ve been working on is twelve minutes long.”Wow! Whatever Tool has in store, it seems like it will be truly worth the wait.[H/T Team Rock]
A family inspects a home.WHEN visiting an open home and you are asked to register your details, you should oblige the agent as they are the custodian of the home in the sellers absence, and need to be able to tell the seller who was in their property. Some buyers are reluctant to give their details for fear that they will be “hounded” by the agent. In today’s world of technology, most agents will register their visitors via a software which does a couple of things immediately. Firstly it saves our trees. Secondly it will instantly send you a text to your mobile phone acknowledging your visitation and automatically provide you with the link to show you photos, information and a floor plan of the house.

Only a fool of an agent would not honour that instruction from the buyers.In the case of an auction, when buyers register to bid they must show proof of identity, such as a driver’s licence. I firmly believe it won’t be long before open homes have the same government requirement. I personally have no problem with supplying some form of ID to view an open home, and do so quite often.I am certain that when – and if – the agent is fortunate enough to list one of the visitors homes for sale (which happens regularly after an open home) the new seller would want to know exactly who had gone through their property. So the next time an agent asks you to register when you visit an open home please remember that they are just doing their job.Be sure to let them know if you don’t want to be contacted concerning the property when you leave.
