Today (or should it be yesterday? Ah drat. Labor day then) would have been a really nice day, except for the bummer at work that had me get up from sleep just after midnight. And really, darn those stupid eternally busy dial-up numbers. What are all those people logging into the internet for after midnight, huh? But feh, another drop in the dung heap. So I am cheering myself up by listening to Tom Waits. You can stream his album "Alice" over at anti.com, only until May 2. His forthcoming album "Blood Money" can be streamed starting May 7. If you can make it through the growls, it's really well worth it.
