tom waits

As you may remember, Tom Waits was to appear on The Late Show with David Letterman and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon back in April which ended up being postponed for "a later date TBA." Those appearances, both taped in NYC, have finally been rescheduled. Waits will be chatting up the hosts and playing songs from his 2011 album, Bad As Me, on Letterman on July 9 and Fallon on July 10.

In other Tom Waits television news, his song "Picture in a Frame" was used in a ballet sequence in this week's Bunheads, the new show from Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman Palladino (which is pretty good if you liked Gilmore Girls). You can watch it on YouTube (embed not available, sorry).

I always ask someone what they think about Tom Waits and Elvis Costello when I first meet them. It's a litmus test that I use to determine how much of a dilettante they are (or aren't).

It's absolutely accurate every time.

City Winery just teased an email advertising Tom Waits...I opened the e-mail to read the full subject of Tom Waits Tribute.

SOBs.

^ OK, have you ever listened to Tom Waits or Elvis Costello?

In your opinion, what does it say if you love the one, but never were really turned on by the other?

You can't put Elvis Costello and Tom Waits in the same sentence unless that sentence is "Tom Waits is awesome and Elvis Costello is one of the most boring vanilla songwriters out there"

EC and TW are both great. And I don't give a fuck who cares.

I heard not giving a fuck was the first step in becoming a NASCAR fan.

Elvis Costello gets Botox.
And that little hat he always wears is truly gag worthy.

Elvis Costello can't act.
