alosereffort asked: Now it's your turn! Your favorite Waits song?
This might be a strange choice, but I really love Filipino Box Spring Hog. I love that he wrote a such a passionate love song to roast pork ;)
Frankly, that’s one of my favorite things about him. I get so sick of listening to the same old types of songs you hear on the radio, all about love or the loss of it, all the same kind of love. I love hearing songs about circus freaks, murder in barns, mysterious construction in basements, one-eyed men ruling the land of the blind, and horse-face Ethel… I just love his world. The world where the twisted trees last longer then the straight ones.
It’s that time of year. Time for all my favorite Christmas clips! One of my favorite programs from my childhood, A Claymation Christmas.
kimberlite8 asked: What is your favorite Tom Waits song?
Oh my gatos…that is such a hard question. Oh…ah…well, my favorite album is definitely Rain Dogs. Song….Time maybe? I love Time. But I also have a real soft spot for Romeo is Bleeding, simply because it was the first song where I thought, “I could love this man.” ;)
"I once had a dream, or a vision, and I imagined that dream to be of importance to other people, so I wrote the manuscript and made the film. But it is not until the moment when my dream meets with your emotions and your minds that my shadows come to life. It is your recognition that brings them to life. It is you indifference that kills them. I hope that you will understand; that you when you leave the cinema will take with you an experience or a sudden thought—or maybe a question. The efforts of my friends and myself have then not been in vain…" — Ingmar Bergman
