Tom Waits is magic.

15 Dec

I am convinced, and have been for some time now that Tom Waits would make the best muppet ever. Seriously, he sounds like some kind of mash-up of the Cookie Monster and Oscar the Grouch, with the intelligibility of the Swedish Chef.

This is the closest thing to muppet-Tom Waits I could find, in which he transforms from some kind of flying meatball-cloud into a Rocky Horror-esque turnip.

But that’s not to say I don’t love him. He was amazing in Wristcutters, made that one scene in Domino watchable, and played a slick-as-shit Satan in The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus.

Not to mention he was a total fox in his younger years.
