I can't remember, I think I just liked it..

Too funny!!

Love this passage:

”In less clinical terms, imagine taking the most annoying parts of science fiction and Libertarianism, isolating them, and then somehow blending them up into a cursed musical slurry. Then, infuse that slurry with a distinctive incel vibe, and presto! You’ve got one of the most powerful contraception options on the market.”

As much as I like Tom Waits, it really isn't fair to credit this witticism to him. Quite a bit earlier, Mark Twain said “A gentleman is someone who knows how to play the banjo and doesn't.”

@ARQuint I didn't know this was a variation on MT's words. Please notice that actually also TW's initials are also kind of variation on MT's initials..9_9 I believe the first statement was his own though.

How about some more TW?

 

 

I give Waits a lot of credit for knowing his Mark Twain!

Me to actually, he used to be one of my favorite writers when I was a kid, a guy with a great sense of humor as well. I also share TW's 'affection' for the accordion.. Definitely not in the top 50 of my favorite instruments x-D

Well perhaps that is because you have missed the opportunity to enjoy this awesome rendition of Flight of the Bumblebee:

 

At one time there was an impressive version on bagpipes, but I can not seem to find it now. 😂
