    Your Favorite Tom Waits Song?

    For me it's something offa Rain Dogs. So many good choices ...Jockey Full of Bourbon...Singapore...Clap Hands...9th and Henneprin (where all the prostitutes have names that sound like donuts).

    I'll take Gun Street Girl for a hundred, Alex. It's basically the musical expression of film noire.

    I hope they don't have a general election for mod.

    Can you say Walter Mondale?

    Was lucky to see Tom in concert a few years back during one of his rare live perfomances. I can die now.

    I can't stand the screaming bullsh!t Waits.

    However, when he does this... it just makes me very vulnerable.

    I have no idea. I don't have any experience with that scenario.
