Last weekend, as you may recall, my mom and I were gabbing with women, catching up, drinking wine and eating cheese and crackers, you know, you know, things that grown-ups do. I guess everyone was talking about trips/vacations they had taken recently, and I said that I had been to Seattle last September (holy cow, I can't believe that was a whole year ago!).

me: I shook Elvis Costello's hand!
Mom: Pssh, Elvis Costello.
me: What's wrong with Elvis Costello?
Mom (dismissively): Oh, that man wears ugly hats.
me: ...
me: Well yeah, he does.
Mom: Him and Tom Waits. They're both always wearing ugly hats.
me: !!!

Man, I don't even know anything about Tom Waits. Man, my mom.

The local thrift store has a 4 foot tall framed poster of Elvis Costello sitting amongst all its framed needlework and watercolors of Jesus. I found that interesting.

your mom
I didn't even think his hats are particularly ugly... are they really?

He does unquestionably look like a complete schmuck on the front of Punch the Clock though.

Maybe not? I dunno. My mom thinks that everything different is ugly. That one from the Burt Bacharach record is pretty tragic.

Um hello, Spike?? Good Lord, I can't look at that album, it makes me not want to have sex with him, and we certainly can't have that.

That is funny!?!?!?
so is manning's icon of him jumping over a broken down car. Forget the tatoo art. i want that icon! or a similiar one maybe.
I think the word "Hat" is somewhat funny too. why?
Elvis Costello has a new cd out. A+

Hmm, I can't tell if you're asking or telling. So, yes, it IS funny.

i don't think tom waits' hats would look so damn stupid if he didn't wear 'em on the back of his head like a damn yarmulke....
