"It’s robots, right? They are taking over the world. Slowly, their goal is to eliminate all the water on Earth so they can just hum in a room somewhere with each other, generating information. Right now we’re part of their plan because we’re helping them promote and become more popular, but eventually they’ll kill us off."

Tom Waits talks to The New York Times about a 1980s shoot with legendary photographer Robert Frank: “The record was called Rain Dogs, so we  were expecting to find a rainy day, which we did not find. But we found  the one rain puddle in the whole park, and I’m kind of down there like a  dog. Maybe that was the idea: I’m gonna get down on the dog’s level,  and then Robert would get there at a dog’s level with me. Anyway, I  don’t know why people in music seem to want to squat down. Maybe we just  want to feel close to the earth. I’m still down there, actually. I’m  squatting right now.”
