Tom Waits Article

Okay, so the article's 5 years old, but the Da Capo Best Music Writing 2000 has one of the most fun articles I've read in a while. "Gone North" by Robert Lloyd (LA Weekly) tells of a day spent with Tom Waits. Waits continually drops bizarre comments, observations, and trivia (from his notes) into conversation. Here are some of my favorites.

On the Mona Lisa: "The shaved eyebrows. That's what I go for."

On cooking (and I agree): "Of course, if I'm making something just for me, I'm not very picky, I might just pour some sugar in my ear, suck on a piece of dirt in my mouth, light my hair on fire. I'm fine with that."

On his music: "It's nice to be part of the dismemberment of linear time."

By the way, Waits has a new album coming out, Real Gone. I've only given it one listen so far, but it's pretty decent. This article, more than the new record, is going to send me digging through back catalog.

Hello Justin, I find it very refreshing to occasionally find a comment such as yours with a different topic completely to what I was looking for. It often ads to ones list of lifes experiences.

I tend to have a soft spot for blogs related to article directory and /or sites that have a central theme around article directory type items.

Once again, thank you, hope you don't mind if I visit again sometime :-)

Content is king they say yet when I use search phrases such as Links I find that seeking knowledge still captures me so when people talk about Links just remeber this is still the Information Super Highway.
