to ask me to write something about a tom waits song on his blog.
last night i was drunk and tired and not in the best shape to write about anything but when you write about tom waits its ok to be a little out of sorts i think. anyways, it wasnt about chocolate jesus, above, from the old school david letterman show
it was about a track from franks wild years, still my favorite tom waits album.
as i understand it, theres gonna be a triple-cd coming out of miscellaneous tracks called Orphans and you can hear one of the songs here: Bottom of the World. pretty much better than everything thats out right now. imagine that.
