Tom Waits Tuesday: Bad as Me

Last week, I gave you Tom Waits in his "lounge singer" mode. To compensate for that, here's Tom Waits at his most Tom Waits-iest.

You know,  in the movie "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus", Tom Waits appeared as Satan. Although the movie had many flaws, that bit of casting choice was pretty spot on.

Tom Waits- Back in the Crowd

I thought a recent Tom Waits songs where he's in a more "Heart of Saturday Night" type of  mood.

Thoughts on an Inconstant World Pat 2

A person when comparing the virtues of cats as compared to dogs once told me "Dogs have owners, cate have servants." I always wondered why this was a selling point.

People who extol the virtues of independent comics forget that 90% of independent comics are terrible. That's not to say Marvel and DC Comics can be terrible but at lest there terrible in "that was an entertaining waste of time" way and not a "I paid good money for this" way. (Except for Marville.  Marville was just  a really bad no matter where it came from).

Actually, I love how the writer of Marville tried to defend the book with an excuse that basically amounted to: "While, I wasn't trying to win any popularity contests." Except for, you know, the actual popularity contest. You know, the one where the book with the most sales after six issues got to continue.  Which you lost to a book that didn't come out on time and a book that wound up getting cancelled the next year anyway.

Amusing Amazon Review

Thank once again to my Dad for showing me this and Benjamin Hamilton for writing it.

5.0 out of 5 stars After the divorceJanuary 10, 2011
This review is from: Microwave for One (Hardcover)
After the divorce my diet consisted primarily of uncooked ramen and whiskey. Occasionally I wondered aloud if I'd ever have another home cooked meal again.

Then I discovered "Microwave for One" and everything changed.

My favorite chapters were:

Chapter 1: Plugging in your Microwave and You

Chapter 4: How to Wait 3 Minutes

Chapter 11 [BONUS CHAPTER]: Eating with Cats

In closing, I give this book 2 thumbs up (and a paw!). Thanks Sonia Allison!
