Fragmento de la entrevista de Terry Gross de NPR a Tom Waits

  • GROSS: (...) Did you have an image in mind about what it would mean to be a father...
  • WAITS: Yeah.
  • GROSS: ...and husband, and everything that you'd have to give up, and how you'd become like, a conventional person or something? And that it turns out you could do it on your own terms and be not - it not be what you thought it might be?
  • WAITS: So it's not like the Army.
  • (SOUNDBITE OF LAUGHTER)
  • WAITS: Right? You get a uniform; here's your, your orders; report here at a certain time. Yeah. No, I realized, eventually, that it could be, you know - that you can roll your own. And my wife realized that as well, I think. I mean, there's still certain things that - a lot of things that being a musician is not helpful in family life. You know, when things like fix the shower, start the truck, get the milk - just, you know, things that are all part of daily living, that being a musician is not really a - doesn't give you an advantage. And I think even musical thoughts, sometimes, are inappropriate, and they're poorly timed. You know, they're like - it's like erotic thoughts in church.

Terry Gross de NPR Fresh Air entrevistó a Waits en el marco del lanzamiento del trabajo Bad as me.

Además de perfilarlo como uno de los seres humanos más talentosos, también permite ver una faceta que difícilmente veríamos de un artista de su nivel: quién es Waits como padre y compañero. Anticipo una frase increíble que me marca cada vez que abordo los momentos complejos que tengo con los rayitas: cuando Gross le pregunta por ser papá y vivir en familia, Waits contesta: “So its not like the Army” (Entonces no es como en el ejército).

Waits maravilla, hacer reír y reconforta en esta magnífica entrevista.

Watch: Gay teen just totally owned the Westboro Baptists Church with this Panic! at the Disco parody 

The Westboro Baptist Church’s antics have become so desperate and silly of late that many now ignore the hate group’s fringe views and publicity stunts. But for one lesbian teen, they crossed a big line by parodying one of her favorite band’s “sinful” pop songs in an effort to spread messages of homophobia and bigotry.
