"I don't have a drinking problem ‘cept when I can't get a drink."

With a voice that could only have been gifted through a lifetime of cigarettes and hard whiskey, Tom Waits' poetic tales of the lost and the damned can't help but strike a chord in me.

And there's a certain skill to pull off wearing a suit, without looking like you give a damn. Waits has it.

"You're innocent when you dream..."

Tom Waits makes his own instruments, I'm sure he has a double piano knocking around somewhere. This photo makes me feel hot and flustered.

I had considered trying to pull off a Tom Waits pic before Music day was even announced. I'm now glad that I didn't. This is perfection. Recently, the Belcourt Theater here in Nashville got an original print of Big Time on loan from a collector. It was quite a spectacle finally seeing it on the big screen! Anyway, kudos from one Waits fan to another!

Wow, SenatorJohnson, that's pretty cool. AmandasAutopsies and I have always wanted to see him live but price, distance and lack of UK tours have prevented that particular reality. Next best thing, I'd say!

brokenchopstick says:
... if I say yes, Vanbert, jbarr and ChiefMcstache, the chances are the Time Police will come back and confiscate it, re-writing history as they go, including these comments.

... so, sadly, I guess the answer is no.
