    @BIGDaddyWil Have you contacted Anti- about a repress? It looks like they might be doing this.
    No, I haven't.  I really hope they do a re-press and I might give them another shot.  Thanks!

    TOM WAITS BY MATT MAHURIN
    (SPECIAL EDITION)

    This slip-cased collector's edition is accompanied by a fine-art print of the cover of Mule Variations signed and numbered by Matt Mahurin in an edition of 250 copies.

    A collection of wildly inventive portraits of musician Tom Waits, the result of a 30-year collaboration with photographer and illustrator Matt Mahurin. This visually arresting book is a testament to the unique collaboration, going back three decades, between the photographer and illustrator Matt Mahurin and the musician Tom Waits. Having shot magazine portraits, album covers, and music videos of Waits, Mahurin was inspired to resurrect 100 dormant film negatives as a jumping off point to explore his own surreal, poetic, and occasion­ally dark vision. The images vary from traditional por­traits to ones that capture Waits in concert—but the majority are richly imagined scenes in which Waits is more muse than musician. In addition to the diverse images, the book includes a foreword by Waits, an essay by Mahurin on their longtime collaboration, and 20 original paintings, drawings, photographs, and digital images inspired by Waits’s song titles.

    I'm wondering if Tom just can't physically play live anymore. It's strange to me that he never plays. I can understand not wanting to tour, but no playing any shows is odd. I know he doesn't need the money, but he's a musician and playing is what brings musicians joy. I hope I get to see him one last time.

    In honor of Tom’s recent 70th birthday, film journalist Leigh Singer created a video essay looking at Waits’ many movie roles and how his music, stories and  personas connect with the offbeat character roles he has played on stage and in film. He picks his personal top five roles from the many Waits has taken on since first appearing with Sylvester Stallone in Paradise Alley in 1978. 

    "Not every great artist is a great performer. But whether he’s playing, among many others, the pleading hooker sending a Christmas Card on Blue Valentine, or the weak-willed limo driver in Robert Altman’s Short Cuts; or simply “Tom Waits”, the supremely entertaining talk show guest or arcane trivia-laden interviewee who rarely lets anything truly personal slip, Tom Waits has never lost that feel for either. His performances, on film and in music, are a key part of his art." - Leigh Singer

    So don’t ask me what I’m doing here,
    Holding up a lamppost,
    Flipping this quarter,
    Trying to make up my mind.

    And if it’s heads, I go to Tennessee.
    Tails, I buy a drink.
    If it lands on the edge,
    I keep talking to you. 

    I just felt like writing that out. 
    Because it’s fucking brilliant. 

    Carry on.

    Roadkill has it's seasons...I had to get onto that bus and leave that laughter behind...she had a tattoo gun made out of a tape machine...put mud on a bee sting i got by the crick...her breath smelled like cherries and gasoline...gave me my very first kiss...there's always some killing to do on the farm...did the moon see you?...no sir...did you bring your knife?...how'd i know...what does it matter...we all gonna be...yeeeeeaaahh yeah...just dirt in the ground...it rained mackeral it rained trout...he got to the sun and it was a wilted sunflower, the moon a rotton piece of wood...went back to earth, was all alone and cried.

    It all goes something like that and much more.
    Thank you and have a great day, night or whatever.

    I remember the first time i heard that 'dog door'  song. Played at max volume repeatedly for a few days. You have to be unique to get my attention like that.

    Thread inspires me to reload my cd changer...although his music may just bottom out my soul. Might have to wait for a cold nasty day...or just that boneyard one for now. The horror is so appealing. I guess I'll flip that coin.
