My friend Chris and I wrote and directed this video back in 1989 -- just for the hell of it. In 1998 I acquired Tom Waits' home address and mailed him a copy of it along with a short letter on the stationary of the company I worked for. Well a few months later Tom called me at work! It took five minutes for him to convince me it was him - he read my letter back to me - and proceeded to tell me how much he like the video, my directing style and how he had forgotten what a great song that was! Years later, after telling this story to so many people and feeling that no one really believed me, I wrote Tom again and this time sent a poster of him that I bought off ebay. I reminded him of the video and asked if he would autograph the poster and mention the video - He replied with, "Dear Eric, thanks for the video. Tom Waits." Then he drew a small picture of the road disappearing into the sunset. That poster proudly hangs in my recording studio. What a great man to go to all that trouble. . On another note, how pretentious is it to spell your name Aeyrk in the credits.? Jeeze!
