It’s the birthday of Mr. Tom Waits today. I also came across his ode to record stores. I’ve been pretty deep into his latest album Bad as Me. It feels weather and mood appropriate. It’s got bits reminiscent of his older albums but still feels like he’s moving in a new direction. If you haven’t heard him and Terry on Fresh Air when it first came out it’s worth a listen. I grew even fonder to learn he collects National Geographic. Heart him.
I would squeeeeze his name in there.
