2a.m., and Joey and I have been battling with a collage/poster. Can’t seem to get it. And so off we go, leaving it for tomorrow. I close down photoshop, put the box of pictures away, and then with one last check of the email, the facebook, the music news…and…there it is, like it was only supposed to show up at 2a.m. What other time should it appear? Tom Waits has a website – and not only a website (his first), but an announcement for a live record from the last Glitter and Doom tour. The very tour, mind you, that my girl and St. Thomas and Marvelous Joe and Little Mandy all saw, with the first track taken from our very show in the Magic City. How ’bout that.
As St. Thomas would say: OH BOY.
Best thing about the site is page after page of Waits’ quotes. He calls it ‘Wit and Wisdom’ and verily it is. I’m up an extra hour – and that’s after watching the splash page images cycle 15 times over – whiskey in hand, reading through them and hell if I don’t have class tomorrow.
Really. OH BOY.
