Tom Waits Talks About Moles

I found this gem at The AV Club.

PBS runs a series called Blank on Blank, featuring weirdly animated versions of old, forgotten interviews with legends, including Johnny Cash, Ray Bradbury, and James Brown.The animation is by Patrick Smith.

Chris Roberts of Rock’s Back Pages interviewed Tom Waits in 1988 while Waits was staying in London. In the video, Waits talsk about mole tunnels under Stonehenge, laughing at funerals, and 25 karat transvestites.

It’s a very Tom Waits sort of interview. If you’re at all a fan of his, it’s unmissable.

Some other Blank on Blank interviewees include Hunter S. Thompson (interviewed by Studs Terkel):

Philip Seymour Hoffman:

Lou Reed:

Johnny Cash:
