    one of my favorites from one of my favorite hard rock records ever recorded, Bone Machine

    Just reminded me my favourite Christmas special is coming up. Tom Waits on Austin City Limits which PBS plays every year around this time. Happy Birthday to him!

    Big fan I was just listening to Downtown Train when I opened this post. Got to be one of the greatest opening lines of any song.

    Can’t like him, because he was ahead of my uncle Bob at the market (who was there to buy chicken thighs) and when the butcher told Tom Waits how many chicken thighs he had left, Tom Waits said, “well... you better gimme all of ‘em.”

    this little story seems destined to launch a thousand memes.

    it is distressing to know he eats birds, though... one expects more out of swollen-brained bipeds (although ravens fit that description and they eat plenty of birds... )
