the iggster on turning 60

From Wizbang Pop:

Age has really caught up to Iggy Pop. The punk rocker, who turns 60 in April, tells Spin: "To feel good when I was 21, all I had to do was to smoke a joint. Now I have to turn off my phones, do tai chi for an hour, drink a strong cup of coffee and stay away from bad people, so I can feel good for an hour or two - knowing [that] when it ends, I'm gonna feel like the miserable 59-year-old fuck that I actually am."

Here's a clip of Iggy with Tom Waits in Jim Jarmusch's Coffee and Cigarettes. Jarmusch's films are mostly atmospheric, not plot heavy, so it may seem a bit meandering, which is part of its beauty:
