This video has been making the rounds — I spotted it first over at bookshelves of doom — but it’s worth posting here in case any of you missed it: Tom Waits’ “God’s Away on Business” from 2002’s Blood Money, as performed by Cookie Monster.

In other Wait-y news — har har har — an album of new material from the enigma himself might be on its way. It would be his first album proper since 2004’s Real Gone. More over at Exclaim!
