Tuesday Table: Tom Waits Characters

Category: Tuesday Table
Created on Tuesday, 07 August 2012 Written by Steve

Since Tom Waits has a new album on the way, here's a random table of characters from his songs. No matter how you work them into your game, they're bound to add a little weirdness.

Correction: As it turns out, Tom's teasers weren't for a new album announcement. They were for the video of "Hell Broke Luce" from Bad As Me . Wishful thinking on my part, I guess.--Steve
