Don Olney mentioned it a long time ago, but I didn't watch it until last week. Hilarious.

One of my favorites from Bone Machine:

That's pretty amazing. The guy is TOTALLY stupid with not a beer in sight.

I rented the dvd from Netflix last year: several episodes of the show, "Fishing With John." Jim Jarmusch (film director), Tom Waits, Matt Dillon, and the real killer, a hilarious one with Dennis Hopper in the waters of SE Asia.

Glad to see there's so many who know of Tom Waits.
I've been a fan since "Small Change" came out in the 70's.
Thanks for the info Kim, I have to find that Dennis Hopper episode.

I Jim Jarmusch (film director),

...who directed Waits and John Lurie in _Down by Law._

And be sure to check out John Lurie's work with the Lounge Lizards.

Yeah, I'm a real fanboy. :D

If you're not a fisherman (person) you'll never get it...the rest of us will though!

All the world is green, live on Letterman.
