'Role Models' OR 'How I met the mighty John Waters'
Today was the day that I met one of my hero's Mr. John Waters, the man who brought us tasteless trashy classics like Pink Flamingos, starring the legendary Divine who's eyebrows were nearly as high as she was.
Launching his latest book Role Models at Viktor Wynd's Academy of Domestic Science. Waters was his usual witty self, charming the throngs of admirers. Reading a short excerpt he had us all in stitches. His suit was worth the visit alone.
He once said, "As a child, I always wanted to sit in William Castle`s lap, not Santa`s!" If you have an interest in cinema experiences read William Castle's book, STEP RIGHT UP!...I'm Gonna Scare the Pants Off America & you will see what I mean. He is the man who put electric shock buzzers in cinema seats to literally terrify the public & much more. That's enough for me, I'm going to read my new book.
Don't take my word for it read them for yourself!
