I Go To The John For All Of Life's Answers

Like all good, decent people I love John Waters so much I just want to squeeze him and squeeze him until he's practically dead. So I'm delighted that there's a veritable Waters-palooza going on right now to promote some of his new products, such as his cd music compilation A Date With John Waters.

First, he's over at, answering readers' questions, like this one from John, 24, from New York, who asks:
"What's the ideal date that this album soundtracks?"

Well, we would rob a 7-Eleven, have a martini and come over to my house and listen to music, and I'd seduce you with my album.
Look for his description of "ultimate nudity," something I had never heard of before that sounds horrible, disgusting, and totally fascinating.

Then he's on the YouTubes that the kids are so crazy about, reading the liner notes from the cd (thanks for the link, Terri R.!):

He's also got a new tv show coming out on Court TV called 'Til Death Do Us Part:
'Til Death Do Us Part features fabled director John Waters starring as “The Groom Reaper,” guiding viewers through the true stories of doomed marriages that end with one spouse murdering the other. Each episode dramatizes the events of a true crime, opening at the couple’s wedding, with the time-traveling Groom Reaper as an unexpected guest, foretelling the worst. Through tantalizing and dramatic scenes from the marriage, the Groom Reaper reveals the story of the ill-fated relationship, leaving viewers guessing as to who will be the victim and who will be the culprit.
"The Groom Reaper"? I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS SHOW! Finally, a reason to live that doesn't involve Bravo reality competition shows!

And, of course, the re-make of Hairspray with John Travolta and Christopher Walken as The Turnblads (!) should be out pretty soon, plus there is a new DVD of his stand-up comedy act (on Netflix only for now--thanks for the tip, Richard M.) called This Filthy World.

"Blossoms." OMG. I'll admit it: part of me wants to go look this up on the internet.
