    Jacques Tati = cool...now that's interesting.

    As to Waits, agree with too calculated. An amalgam of Charles Bukowski, beatnik junkie hipster mannerisms, Dave Von Ronk, Moondog, dada, a dark version of Maynard G. Krebs, Wild Man Fischer toned down, and pre-Sanford Redd Foxx stirred up with a literate, smart, sensitive man who has no business in skid row dives. Low life made into high art.

    Listen, I resisted chiming in on this one before because I didn't want to rain on anyone's parade, but of all the famous personalities I've read about in dozens of biographies, he stands out as a major a-hole. Sure, there was a lot of down-to-earth bonding with his motorcycle buddies, but he was also, among other things, an undermining scene-stealer, philanderer, dangerously selfish cokehead (read about his off-set car crash while working on "Le Mans") and wife-beater.
