Don't forget the Tom Waits "Orphans" boxed set is out today. An excellent Christmas gift for the person in your life that has good taste in music. $39 at Amazon.
I have Flash 9 installed, but I'm not getting anything from whatever .swf is supposed to be playing in the post.
This set is the best thing my ears have heard in a while. Maybe the timing is right for my ear to hear some gritty pure analog rants backed by world class musicians.

I am a big fan of Beefheart, but i am not familiar with Waits at all. What album (s) should i check out first?
Actually, if I was going to suggest a Tom Waits album to a Cap'n Beefheart fan, I'd probably suggest "Beautiful Maladies: The Island Years." Greatest hits from his weird records (as opposed to his pre-Island records, which are only odd). Can't go wrong.
As far as suggesting a good first album... for me it depends on what kind of music you like. "Swordfishtrombones" is still one of my big favorites, but I could see "Rain Dogs" for somebody more into rock music, "Bone Machine" for goths (a no-brainer), and "Mule Variations" for country fans. For the most part every single album has been somewhat of an acquired taste for me, it takes more than a year to really get to like any particular album.
