Tom Waits Chocolate Jesus



Tom Waits Waits was on Letterman the other night, I like his style. I grew up listing and thinking he was cool, the grave yard pictures in the last couple of posts mean nothing more than I think they are a means to the end so to speak, or they are just easy to photograph and appear artistic no matter how bad the light or composition.

mone: I think it was Gertrude Stein that said "a Rose is a Rose is a Rose" so I alway read from Stein as a sort of literary Rose. This could explain the sudden storms and the tree limbs falling and popping me on the noodle.

I saw him on there too. I like him too. I have to say, before I knew who he was and before I heard him talking...I thought Dave was interviewing a homeless guy.
He is brilliant though.

Dropping jing like no tomorrow. . .

I figured Mr. Waits looked a little smooth of brow for that vid to be current. Josh, RUN to your local mag store -- the one that sells cool stuff -- and buy the latest issue of Stop Smiling There's a great interview with Tom Waits inside (also one with Joanna Newsom, who I think you'd like). I can't believe the stuff that guy says -- he's so smart! And yo, Tom Waits can DANCE.

I'm convinced Tom Waits is not of this dimension. He exists in a separate dimension, which is a darker and scarier place than this one, but he is able to navigate this place unscathed because there he can wield his sense of humor like a caustic weapon. Through a quirk of physics, he is visible in this dimension, and we mistakenly believe that we are visible to him. We are not. Any "interactions" between Waits and members of our dimension are purely coincidence. He is actually interacting with creatures in his own dimension, but his sage wisdom translates so well that we think he is interacting with us.

McDougal: You ole dog you, you took the words right out of my mouth! Well done!
