Waits '08

I think the only person I'd be totally happy with as president is Tom Waits. Seriously.

excerpt from The Black Rider
I had the opportunity to see The Black Rider at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, and it's still very much my favorite theatre production ever. [Robert Wilson, Tom Waits and William S. Burroughs... how could you possibly go wrong?]

Tom Waits - God's Away on Business [2002]

Jim Jarmusch's Coffee and Cigarettes with Iggy Pop

Tom Waits - What's He Building In There? [1999]

Cibelle - Green Grass [cover of a Waits song, 2007]

Waits on religion
"God's a lil' short guy... y'know... started in the mail room and worked his way up... invested well."

press conference for the Glitter and Doom tour

Tom Waits - Innocent When You Dream [1987]
