Though best known for his guttural, moon dog drawl, Tom Waits is also an accomplished and varied composer. At the end of it, no one spoke for what felt like five minutes, either in the booth or in the room. No one budged.
Navalny, who is serving a day jail stint for parole violations he says are trumped up, released the video last week in an effort to encourage people to take to the streets to demand his freedom. Tens of thousands did so last weekend. Navalny's allies are continuing to promote the video to try and mobilise people to protest, this time on Sunday. Authorities say such protests are illegal under Russian law as they require pre-authorisation. Putin, who has dominated Russian politics for more than two decades and has avoided even uttering Navalny's name in public, has said the palace, in southern Russia, does not belong to him or his family.

W hen Tom Waits was a boy, he heard the world differently. Sometimes, it sounded so out-of-kilter, it scared him. The rustle of a piece of paper could make him wince, the sound of his mother tucking him in at night might cause him to curl up as if in pain.

He is rocking back and forward on his seat as he recalls this and you can tell that traces of it still linger.
