"Veal Cutlet Come Down Tried to Beat the Shit Out of My Cup of Coffee...

...Coffee just wasn't strong enough to defend itself."

Lately I've been on a Tom Waits kick. Well, that's half true. I'm always on some kind of Tom Waits kick, but I've been playing the HELL out of Nighthawks at the Diner lately. I just love the live setting of the album, the intimacy of him playing to a small crowd, and the poetic creativity of this album, from the 'tween song banter ("I'm not weird about it, I don't tie myself up first.") to the actual songs. Tom Waits is a friggin' genius. You know this. I know this.

That's all I got. It's time to eat before 24. Talk soon.

Have you purchased Orphans: Brawlers, Bawlers and Bastards yet? It is soooo good.

I have indeed. And I really liked it. Lots and lots of different stuff. I can only imagine how much more material Mr. Waits is sitting on.

Enjoy watching your Bears lose, Comrade.
