    Default Welcome, one and all, to our Tom Waits spektakula[aaaaaaaa]!

    Ladies and gentleman, welcome to the ultimate Tom Waits spektakula, a collaborative effort between some of the Coachella Forum's devoted fans*. As required in any spektakula, here are some babes with signs:











    Some photos have been slightly altered for the sake of humor.

    If you'd be so kind as to click the lowest sign girl, you will be redirected to a megaupload page which holds a massive Tom Waits compilation, handpicked for you fine people by Alma and Hannah Rain. Twenty-eight songs spanning twelve albums throughout the duration of Waits' illustrious career. We've retained the original album names, so please make sure to copy the tracks into a separate playlist to keep the order.

    Track listing is as follows:

    1) All The World is Green
    2) In the Colosseum
    3) Tango 'til They're Sore
    4) Heartattack and Vine
    5) Had Me A Girl
    6) Shake It
    7) Come on up to the House
    8) Somewhere (West Side Story)
    9) Drunk on the Moon
    10) Black Market Baby
    11) Gin Soaked Boy
    12) Tom Traubert's Blues
    13) LowDown
    14) Sixteen Shells from a Thirty-Ought-Six
    15) I Don't Wanna Grow Up
    16) Dead and Lovely
    17) Depot Depot
    18) Please Call Me, Baby
    19) Gun Street Girl
    20) Rains on Me
    21) Knife Chase
    22) Trouble's Braids
    23) The Piano Has Been Drinking (Not Me)
    24) Mr. Siegal
    25) The One That Got Away
    26) The Part You Throw Away
    27) When You Ain't Got Nobody
    28) Underground

    We intended to have none of the same tracks as the Tom Waits mix that was previously posted in the Mix Depository, because we did not intend to debase Breakjaw's excellent work. However, upon closer inspection, we in fact included the song "Black Market Baby", and for that, we offer Breakjaw our humblest apologies.

    Sir or Madam, for your viewing pleasure, let us present to you the Tom Waits Online Cinema.

    Tom Waits is not only a fabulous musician, but quite the comedian. Here is some footage from an appearance on the mock morning show "Fernwood Tonight", where, after performing "The Piano Has Been Drinking", he holds his own among professionals Martin Mull and Fred Willard:


    Here, we have the eccentrically zany music video for "I Don't Wanna Grow Up":


    Next, you can find a short animated film entitled "Tom Waits For No One", the first film ever to use the both revolutionary and remarkable rotoscope:


    And, lest we forget, here is the "Goin Out West" music video to remind us that we will never be as hardcore as Mr. Waits:


    Again, Ladies and Gentleman, let us kick back and appreciate this remarkable man. Put on "Depot Depot", pour yourself a drink, and relax. Take a scroll [pardon our pun] through our Tom Waits Appreciation Gallery:



























    Thank you all for joining us for a very special spektakula dedicated to Thomas Alan Waits. Your regular programming will now resume.

    Give it another try in a little while. That happened to me with a mix from the depository earlier that I successfully downloaded a little while ago.

    Has anybody seen the fishing video of Tom out in the middle of nowhere with some guy?
    If you knew, you'd know.

    The guy also did some ice fishing with Willem "I get a little sweet around bedtime" Defoe.

    outstanding thread.

    However, how can you have a Tom Waits spektakulum without at least a picture of Chuck E. Weiss?

    And with all due respect, please save the spektakulum talk for the Girls Only Thread.



    Oh wait. That's something else.

    If this is really the case, I'd suggest skipping straight to "Had Me A Girl", then to "Depot Depot", then to "Please Call Me, Baby". And then, skipping to a plastic surgeon and having them give you some man parts. F'real.

    That I Dont Wanna Grow up video is my favorite Tom Waits video.
    I love Tom Waits!
    On that note, has one heard Queens of the Stone Age's cover of 'Goin Out West'? Cuz I sure havent!!!
    If anyone has it, could you send it to me! Or atleast tell me where I can find it?
    Thank you, very much!
