Tom Waits -- good or whack?

Sometimes, the stuff Tom Waits says is completely cool.


Q: What is a gentleman?

A: A man who can play the accordion, but doesn’t.


Sometimes he seems like a parody of a Tom Waits-type character.


Q: What’s heaven for you?

A: Me and my wife on Rte. 66 with a pot of coffee, a cheap guitar, pawnshop tape recorder in a Motel 6, and a car that runs good parked right by the door.

Go West, Young ChiliCon

Hey all,
A bit of personal news - I'm moving to Seattle and starting a job with Amazon. My girlfriend Theresa is also going. We've got a going-away weekend planned for Memorial day weekend, and I'd love to have some of you locals there. We did the evite thing.

Let me know if that doesn't work.
I don't know if there's enough room in that town for the both of us, Trump.
