John Waters at the Philadelphia library “Author Events” last tonight was everything I expected and more. My fellow Baltimorian and icon of the shock and trash cinema was honest, hysterical and wickedly sharp as he promoted “Make Trouble” his latest book that’s really the product of a commencement speech he gave at the Rhode Island School of Design about pushing boundaries. The speech went viral on the internet and for good reason. It’s unconventional, raw and challenges EVERYONE to go out into the world and “Make Trouble”
“Today may be the end of your juvenile delinquency, but if should also be the first day of your new adult disobedience.”
At a mere 70 -mostly illustrated- pages it’s a fun and easy read but one every Waters fan should own if only to entertain oneself or their guests while in the loo 😉 (just don’t tell him cause he hates people with books in their bathrooms!)
Wonder how he keeps that stache which, btw has its own Twitter handle @johnwaterstache so impeccably coiffed!?
Ok I’m off, time for a mani!
