I'm not a huge fan of Tom Waits. To me, he forces it a too much, trying a little too hard to be hip and cool. That may be the unhippest thing there is, being something you aren't. Every once in a while I have to cut him some slack, cut myself some slack, open my eyes and ears. This is Waits being Waits. I think. Jonny posted a fuzzier version of this the other day, which was maybe more effective. We need a little variety in our lives.
