rocinante721: His one-man lecture show floating around the indie cable channels is hilarious


I saw it on HBO or Showtime a few months back really late nite/early morning. It was awesome.

"My favorite review of my life came from the Japan Times about 'Pecker.' They said it was like a Disney movie, but for perverts."

I've never seen Star Wars.

He's dead to me now.

I love me some John Waters. He is hilarious in person, too. I scored a meet greet with him several years ago for designing a database for AGLIFF, and I wish so much that he was my next door neighbor.

Pop a Poppler in your mouth
When you come to Fishy Joe's
What they're made of is a mystery
Where they come from no one knows
You can pick 'em, you can lick 'em
You can chew 'em, you can stick 'em
If you promise not to sue us you can shove one up your nose

....wait, what?

What or who is the greatest love of your life?
I think my friends' love is the best - it lasts the longest.


Aristotle would be impressed.

I can believe that.

Yeah, he's finally come out of the closet about living mostly in Greenwich Village; he still has a house in Baltimore, but he's lived mostly in NYC for years.

I've met him a couple of times, and worked with people he's worked with. I always liked his work and meeting him didn't diminish my admiration. He's a very cool guy.

That's kinda sad. Obviously the man can live wherever he wants, but it's sad to see the exodus of creative talent from a town that's circling the drain economically...

Then again, what do I know? He probably helps Baltimorians by filming his movies there and employing locals than he ever would by living there.

His books (^)are great reads.

I have to say that Polyester is my absolute favorite Waters. So, SO funny.

Were it not for the lack of space in the car going to Baltimore, I would have had a chance to meet Waters and assist in the filming of an interview of him ... back in I think it was 05 or 06, don't remember the specific year, but an indie producer friend of mine went up there and shot the piece. Not sure if it ever made it onto any kind of DVD, but they got a tour of his house and everything. I was so jealous.

/still jealous actually

Thanks, subby, for sharing this with us! I love John Waters. My favorite film of his is Female Trouble. It is farking insane.

I was at a meet and greet of his in San Francisco a few years ago, where a man was standing in line holding a toilet to be autographed.

He and I lived in the same apartment building in Baltimore for a few years. Being a big fan, it was always surreal to run into him in the elevator. A very cool, very respect-worthy guy. Was always willing to talk about his current projects as long as you weren't an a-hole.
