“(above right) Divine terrorizing the Trockadero Dance Club, October 29, 1978. He had just thrown an entire cake into the audience, nailing many, and was on his way to the other side of the stage to tear down the Trock”™s other white and silver faux palm trees. I guess he didn”™t like the decor. This was just after his starring role in John Water”™s, Female Trouble.”

uuuuuhhhh hot
Castro Street cruising, August, 1976

Me Loves Bücherstapel

Where are the Creatures?

Above is a photo of a page from Place Space, the magazine featuring John Waters at home. So, of course, this is showing one of his many book piles.

And what can we see CLEARLY in the pile to the right? John Waters has a copy of Ausserirdische Zwitterwesen / Alien Hybrid Creatures, the book by die Professorin Michael Krebber.

Below is my personal re-visualisation of the book pile for your viewing pleasure.

Alien Hybrid Creatures are Everywhere

Well done.

At Home with John Waters

In the newest issue of Place Space, designer Todd Oldham fotographs John Waters at home. The book comes wrapped in a custom designed poster as well as tear out postcards featuring books from Water”™s shelves such as “œSex on Horseback” and “œGay John”. Also included are essays by Todd Oldham and Cindy Sherman.

I have uploaded a few pictures to flickr.

1You can see me totally knocked out at gay pride Frankfurt in 2002 (I think someone poured something in my drinks) and at my summer party 2003.

PICT0018I had Rinderzunge at Xmas 2003: it was delicious. To be honest, I have had ox tongue many times, but only when Jesus is born.

PICT0302Some recent pictures were taken in Toronto. In case you wondered: What is produzentin doing all day long? Well, she took pictures of magnolia trees.

PICT0253Anyway, have a look at all the sets.
Oh, before I forget, there is a picture of a sea cucumber taking a shit.
