Merry freaking Christmas

The holidays can be a bit of a drag sometimes. With all the pressure to get with your nearest and dearest, it instead highlights feeling of loneliness.

Last Christmas I discovered this Neko Case cover of a Tom Waits song, and it has a special place in my heart. Good for wallowing.

Merry freaking Christmas.

Coffee & cigarettes

Sometimes I get a craving for both.

Watching this video won’t satisfy that craving (in fact, ┬áit might intensify it) but it’s one of my favorite things in the whole world.

If that doesn’t satiate your yearning, maybe this list from Mojo Magazine of the best Tom Waits videos will.

Happy freaking Friday.
