"And children. If i met a young person and they had never seen a pasolini film. I would say start with the gospel according to saint matthew a beautiful religious movie that at the same time made people nervous because christ and mary just looked like regular people. Every day i would tell you to watch tare raimo a movie about a whole family. That goes crazy because somebody so handsome. They comes to their house and have sex with him. No matter what their sexuality is. I would tell them to watch pig pen. That's another great movie. He made but he made different movies about different classes in italy. But at the same time he surprised you every time and i would tell any young person. That's what you want is to be surprised when you're young. Isn't it so watches movies and see his whole career and see how he dealt with commercial cinema too because his films were hit some of them they played in america. You know these are subtitles movies. That were playing in big art cinemas in america. So you could see what. Maybe he went a little crazy at the end and to keep yourself really you've got to do. You have limits. Do you go over your limits to you. Give.

"If i was going to make solo. I wish pasolini had made pink flamingos and he would remake that which was probably the second most censored shocking movie. Ever that i made. We made them sort of around the same time. I made pink flamingos. I and the thing that was quite uncommon was that feces was involved in both those movies in the pasolini movie which celebrated the banality of fascism Humans a human feces. But they did it. Fake and pasolini movie. It was chocolate in my film. It was dogs species and divine actually hated for real. But i don't hold it against pasolini that he used chocolate because he's people under eighteen which would really be frowned upon today. But i've read about when they made the film and the kids said he was so lovely to us. We were laughing every time. They said we'd start laughing. We had the greatest time making that movie. So that's that's what is so amazing about what it's like to make a movie people become like family and even if it's the most hideous movie every mate everybody's working on it together so i i wish that maybe today pasolini was still alive which unfortunately he is not. He was murdered by hustler. In rome we could switch and remake each other's films today. That's what would have been exciting. Probably i i heard a pasolini from the gospel according to saint matthew. That was a movie that caused some controversy then. I don't know why it's very respectful. I think so black and white movie. That's a beautiful movie so guilty yesterday. But after the t. v. Demi shafat a bit convenient and couldn't get on each t. I knew him. My favorite was a movie. Make if i'm pronouncing it right. Tia raimo and that's about tarrant. Stab at is young and most beautiful. Just shows up at a family aboard family's house and has sex with the mother the father the son and the maid and then they all go crazy. It's another beautiful movie. When i first heard pasolini. I mean he was not always. Every film he made was not controversial. He got incredibly good reviews. I mean he was in ken. And all the big thumb fussell's he was the toast of so he was very respected. You know it was only way later in life but with solo and some of the later. Stop that where he got really. Some people thought went over the deep end to me i read variety. When i was a kid i knew about pasolini from reading the trade papers and certainly all the intellectual new york times all the new york film festival and everything they covered him must mean everybody knew about possibly he was not he was not an obscure person to know. If you've followed art films and fifty sixties and seventies at all. What attracted me to his work with his insane. Catholicism his his love of the underclass and and his unpredictable unpredictable. You know right in the middle of the sixties he was against the hippies and four cops because the cops were working class and that's what he was for as a communist and the hippies were kids so he i love that you know you he because he was an intellectual and one that you could never quite predict so i still like people like that on november the sink in nineteen seventy five. He was found murdered outside rome. I read in the papers that pelosi a seventeen year old boy presumed prostitute of the staticy only ten mini had gone with pasolini to austria. The night pasolini died. He actually was murdered. He didn't have a heart attack. He earlier in the evening picked up a hustler at the train station and took him an hour outside of rome. Where many people went i. They believed to have sex in private. Like the maybe the trucks were new york or people forget in the seventies people had sex every night with a different person in public everywhere. It's impossible to imagine today but then it was considered almost normal lovers lane kind of and lovers lane that ended very very badly. The hustler was someone of age but a so-called local tough guy named pino the frog he was known as and he was ugly too and the press called him that i think i don't know that he was known as maybe he was just pino before the murder and pasolini took him out there and who knows what happened but the hustler took pasolini keys in his car and ran him over with his own car. And there's all sorts of conspiracy theories today that he was set up by the government. I don't believe that. I think he just had a bad night. Most gay people my age. I know they had a bad night. Wants to you know straight people do to looking for mr good bar every movie about that. So i think And it's too bad. Because pino the frog he was ugly too so it was bad but And he only served he. Didn't he got out of jail. He didn't serve a life sentence or anything and Which i think was. Certainly you know the gay panic defense and all that kind of thing which would not hold up today but did then so my continuation with wanting to do something with pasolini went to a record that i made. That was released this year. With just one hundred copies from sub pop and it was a prayer to pasolini and during the middle of the pandemic. I was honored at the rome film festival. And i went to rome and it was hard to even go there but the government gave us permission to go and i had always wanted to go to the pasolini murder site. Where is a little memorial park. Even though they make it impossible to go to the address. It's an hour outside of rome in an obscure industrial area where he was took the hustler. Who ran him over in his own car. But there is a park there. But google maps takes you to the wrong place and there's a padlock on little part but it's fake. We bought wire-cutters and everything we were e. i. n. brennan. Who is my promoter for my christmas film. He's also done a lot of world music and and he kinda produced this record. He came there and he took the sounds of the lock and the breeze and everything so we we had a full production crew there. But you didn't really have to cut the lock. It's just there for effect. I don't know who they're keeping out like pasolini haters. I don't know but inside it's a beautiful little park and it has sayings from all his films and different titles. It's really a lovely little place in the middle of nowhere. So and they they had this sign. That says you're watched by security. For what do people go there and have sex. I mean it seems like if they did that would be appropriate considering pasolini But i didn't see any of that activity but no action. While i was there but it was a beautiful place and later i i wrote a prayer to pasolini. And that's what the record is. I believe in puzzle. Any the filmmaker almighty creator of saulo and mamma roma who was conceived by marx born of the future spirit of maria callas suffered under the catholic church was assassinated and buried on guilty. He descended into cinema hatton and sit. If that the right hand the theriault cal cina from thence he shall come to judge the sensors the fascist and bashers. I believe in netto davoli. The love of pasolini late no matter that he later had both a wife.

David Kellum, Voice of Ole Miss, Talks About How He Got His Start at Ole Miss

I know. Fridays are pretty busy times with baseball and everything. But we appreciate you making time for us and how are you sure doing great polyp sitting at the box waiting for us to play belmont here at six thirty our time. So it's great. You called me the perfect time but good to be only. I have seen this before in her different friends. But i would be intrigued the because sometimes it takes a long time to get a a prime job like you have now especially with the the just the absolute zeal for almost baseball but You apparently got started pretty early. Yep i started basically in highschool to be honest with that kind of tricked tricks my way into this job I was a senior in high school. My mother was professor suter. Don't miss and i used to hang out of her office a lot and radio. Tv was under theater and campus radio station which was w cbi at that. Time was carrying ole miss baseball and it was on cable. Only the students were gone. The professors were known. This guy comes blowing out of the station ex. My mother's office and he's gotta find somebody these games. Everybody's gone and so. I told him i said i can do him. He said who are you. Don't even go was and so. He thought hosted freshman. Ole miss which i was not as a senior high school. But i did the seventy seven. Sec tournament for ole miss on the campus radio station as a eighteen year old. So that's how. That's how. I got my and they hired by the local radio station. The final years that this jack you know how that goes and started doing baseball and seventy eight. It's baseball and women's basketball through. Eighty eight became the lead announcer in football men's basketball and continue to baseball in eighty nine. I mean that's i'm always Always admire people not only for for excelling but being able to to stay in a job. That long. And i don't mean that i mean and i say that because there's all misses the perfect exception it is the perfect example there. There are a lot of changes that have happened then. You never really know what's going to happen. I've seen it firsthand with When when i first started in birmingham legendary voice of the crimson tide was out with a new a new administration. How how how do you hang on. And i don't mean hang on. How do you stay in the job like that. For for as long as you do considering the politics of of intercollegiate athletics. Just don't criticize the coaches and you told a long time ago point. Because they rarely they rarely pop up these jobs to. There's more opportunity now. I teach a class at old miss. We're not teaching this spring because of the pandemic but i teach sportscasting class. And when i got my shot to be in radio radio was basically it. I mean you didn't have the live streaming opportunities the podcast opportunities and all the things that are going on today And so it has been difficult. But it's funny. you should mention. I've had kids through the years that like meet the rebels day would come up to me and say i'm gonna have your job someday and i soon i've got a few more years. You know thinking back my mind but this past year A kid said that's means that ten years old and hit him. Like you might be the one because i put in a tiny years this point when i got started John waters at tennessee. Larry months was the georgia jim. Five was it auburn jet crystal. Was it stay. You had k would lead for Kentucky rely at alabama. Mickey floor. Jim halt on lsu had just started a little bit before me. And then of course. Later we get all eels outta arkansas about voltage for south carolina and more recently dave south from texas mike kelly from missouri. But that list of names Just incredible announcers across this leaks. And when i first got in the youngest announcing the sec felt very very fortunate. The following year Our buddy west. Durham came in Demand or bill before we went to go to georgia tech. He became the second youngest announcer. We're sitting at a football media days in birmingham which of course you know all about vendor several of them and we're not a little broadcast meeting we're looking around the room and some of those names that just mentioned for sitting there and westland over to me now. He's got a legendary dad. He grew up with and woody but he said you intimidated. I said apps so We were surrounded by that early in our careers which is really really cool. And unique to get to know those men and lean on those that we were kinda the young bucks at the time and that we've kind of become not necessarily legends but longevity We're we're the ones that have been around a while.

"What? That we all live in a yellow submarine? Wanna know? By the book now on with the show About a month or so ago, I learned that the bottle re Museum of Fine Art. Was giving a bathroom of space devoted to the hanging of artwork of John Waters. Now, in my opinion, this is wrong. It is pathetic Feel I'm not saying John Waters. Work is an interesting it is. I'm just saying that it's not fine Art. My own artwork is not fine Art. But if Baltimore Museum of Fine Art wanted to display the work of a bottom or artist than our guest this hour, James Bo Shell is a perfect match. We have invited him and his collaboration team to join us tonight because they have just released an astoundingly beautiful Book called James W. Joe Shit. Rochelle, his life and art, and it is written by his one time student and lifelong friend, William M. Waters, who is also joining us tonight, along with Jim's life partner and fellow artist Lynn Jones. Together we hope to show you over the radio that Jimbo shells brilliance at depicting bottom, or we all the Baltimore that we all love. Is now available and they gorgeous coffee table sized book preserving it forever. Now Jimbo Shell and I share a very deep attachment to Baltimore is greatest Mayor William Donald Schaefer as we both worked on the Mayor's advisory Commission of Arts and Culture, painting murals around the city. Baltimore is ah, hard time for artists to survive in economically yet, Jim Was vastly successful in Baltimore and elsewhere. His super realism approach attracted great attention, and as he used it to preserve what he observed in the city streets. Mayor Schaefer adored Jim's murals and praised the quality of his brilliance. As I read Jim's Life story, I can't help but to interject the many parallels. That we've had along the way. One of the biggest things I profited by in my own relationship with Uncle Bond Schaefer that I used to call him that all the time was his advice to me about surrounding yourself with intelligent women. If you want to succeed, that is what he did. And of course, that's what I've done. And that is what? Well, I've I'll never forget tangling with the mighty Joan Burress ska. Whoa! Who was his point person on many a mural project. I did many murals for Don Shaffer as well as posters, but Well, his posters for mayor and governor campaigns. When Don Shaffer asked me to go to Egypt and establish the sister city relationship with loops or Egypt and Alexandria. I jumped at the chance and my wife Sahara, and I Completed that task to his great satisfaction, but I have not succeeded in winning over at the art community in Baltimore. Baltimore has yet to understand my artwork, but it doesn't really matter. Eventually, my wife, doctor Queens, Ahora stepped in and that's all I'm needed. I have achieved more success in other countries. Ironically, My been on my own hometown, the United Kingdom, Germany, Russia, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Brasilia, etcetera, etcetera, but enough about me. Let's introduce Our three guests waiting patiently and jump into the life story of Jimbo Shell. I can't wait to find out what other parallel experiences we shared income.

"Filmmaker. Actor author John Waters is out with a brand new book, Mr Know it all. You know him from so many things, including pink flamingos and Hairspray, and Mr Waters joins us Now What an honor! Thanks for coming on. Thank you for having me. Let's start with a pandemic. Has it been a creative time for you? Or, you know, some people have said, it's kind of soul crushing. What do you think? Well, but I mean, I'm right every morning Monday to Friday, no matter what, so I had continued to do that, so that's no different than my life is always But I do miss life, Somebody said the other day to me, a good friend said. It's terrifying and boring and held over there. How can you ever use those two words together, But it's an apt description of what's going on. So I have been a nice looking the my different homes that I've been in his my holding cells. You know, I said, I respected, you know, I wear the mask. I do go to the store to do a couple things that but it has been not good or bad for creative. I think it's kept it the same. I do know a lot of what it was to say that they have been unable to write during this. And I think there is an anxiety that's in the air. But it does is not good for the creative process because show business things over far as I know, I lost 32 speaking job, so I wouldn't say it's the most optimistic time the phrase do you feel essential or nonessential with this pandemic that well, I feel that humor is incredibly essential. And that's why I gave a convention of states this year that you could watch a movie too. But I did it for the school of Visual Arts, and I had to It was virtually done. Obviously, we're supposed to be for 5000 People on Radio City musical that I had to address that pandemic in a weirdly humorous way, because that's what people expect for me. So it listen. Move a new subject that is gonna be With us forever. Every time we read a novel that takes place from now under that have to take place with people with mashed on. I mean, nobody knows yet your last film was in 2004 a dirty shame. Are you planning another film in the future? Are you done with that phase of your life? What do you think Ng books do better in the movies in my last book that won't models and artistic life unchecked across America? But at the same time I've been paid by Hollywood, the right three different sequel figure this place that never got made. I was paid to write another Children's Christmas and movie called Fruitcake that might get made. So a nun still involved in the Hollywood thinking criterion keeps putting out my old movies and restoring them in these beautiful versions that they're putting out. My Hollywood career is still going fine. It's just, um I gonna make another movie. She never know if they had meetings, You know, I write books. I used to do my speaking show. I'm a writer. Basically, I would never make a movie I didn't write. When we come out of this. However it is. Do you think we're gonna still have that the ability to if you want to say be critical but also laugh a little bit. It's some of the circumstances of serious is they are, thanks, So I think it's a lot of things going on today that aren't so funny, But we do have to find the humor in it. Because humor is what gets people to change their mind. Humor is what gets people to listen and humor is terrorism. Remove it. Plate, and it can humiliate the enemy. Your new book, At least, the title sounds very funny, Mr Know it all. It's a collection of essays. Is there a common theme common thing that somehow I became respectable talk about the That means there's hope for everybody might main thing I think I passed on in this book, this negotiation skills. No matter what you want to do, you have to negotiate and that is so important to learn, And I think it can be humorous. What I've had to go through to get movies made and what I've had to go through when it goes bad. And when you have a good when you have a flop, and you always have to have backup plans, so I think I did. Good advice is good advice book. I think you talk about how your perception has changed because I think you did. I think probably earlier crew people thought that you were kind of My word, maybe a little odd or out there, But now people revere you and think. Wow, is John Waters. He was so ahead of his time. How do you feel yourself When you look back at yourself and see where you are now, I think they only for collecting. Thought I was a little bit of a maniac. But now being a little bit of a maniac is is more accepted. People want to be an outsider now and I don't anymore. I wanna be an insider, and I talk about that in the book because it's much more fun. Sneak in the rooms of power and corrupt him. It's much more exciting, like Hairspray became a Trojan horse that snuck in American culture, and it's another schools now, so I think it's learning how to pick your battles and how to win. Even if you're crazy. You've worked with so many famous people in your in your life, well known personalities that you've talked about in your books like Tracy Oldman and Johnny Depp, who have you loved working with and why, And Who would you like to work with in the future? All of them. I never had any trouble with any of the stars that worked with think. Even if the movie is not success of the movie gets a bad with you. They blame need critics. They don't blame the star. They give him credit for having enough moved to come to Baltimore and make a movie with me. I don't think I've heard anybody's career. I'd like to have my guest Meryl Streep would be the one I would that matter before, but she didn't say what's called my agent. Let's make a movie together. You know, I think she's a great actress, and I like the watching everything. So I guess I took, uh Do you think Hollywood will change because of the pandemic? And will it be for the better or for for the worst, or is it kind of just stay the same? Nothing is gonna go back as we know it. I don't believe I would right now. I mean, get there. How do you do musicals? How do you have people dancing next to each other? It's gonna be 1000 moons of my dinner with Andre to count the glass and take place in one room. Um, that's hanging out. No Hollywood. It is paralyzed right now. Animation animation of King You're seeing all these movie theaters. Shut down. They can't make it during the pandemic. They may not be here when the pandemic is over. Are you okay with all of us watching movies in the basement? No, I'm not. Okay. I'm lucky. I'm old, because if I was young and getting all my early of these movies through the Hollywood system that I write about a Mr Milito, I'd be crazy at this. Stop it because you Momentum over s. Oh, no, I'm not okay with it, but But I don't know. Every I just did for this book Tour virtual book for where we would go into each city where I was going to go, And then I get interviewed by somebody like a discussion and you have to pay the ratchet and you get the book. Well, that's reinventing what a book tours. Um, s o the movie thing yet? I'm afraid that people are now used to watching everything at home because they've been watching more television only ever. Washington whole life in the last four or five months. And will they want to go out again? That's something I don't know. I mean, do I want to rush into a crowded movie theater today? No, but I certainly want movie theaters open back up, and I feel very much. The independent art film because they're in trouble. They want trouble before. Now. I'm not so sure that anything's gonna work except giant Hollywood movies. But I'm thrilled at the idea of dragons I presented in Provincetown. Why live in the summer at the Wellfleet Drive? And after that, a team of these kidding with a weapon night of the week this which is about killer ran it. And it was back on driving. And then recently in another city, there was a pop up driving and read. They want so set up in parking lots and show maybe for one night. I'm really for that about make sure polyester..

"This is Matt Ryan of the Atlanta Falcons, and you're listening to the mark Arab Show. Speaking of football lost in Longoria's fantasy Football League to judge this week. Got me. I want pretty much all my other leagues, though. How did you win longer? I lost both. We lost both of you. Yeah, that's we get for being a homer, drafting all the Texas Longoria's league.

So the faster you but but first, Longoria Lot of you folks have Ah, listen to the show recently know that after my marriage, I couldn't go anywhere because of the pandemic, So no honeymoon Honeymoon is postponed, but a great idea. Actually, my wife had a great idea to start checking out some of the cool places here in Atlanta, where we don't have to travel where we don't have to be quarantined, and, ironically, that she brought that up because there's a great new book out called 111 places in Atlanta that you must Not miss the author Travis Taylor joins us on the show. Travis. Thanks for coming on. Thanks for having me and congratulations on the marriage on Twitter this afternoon. So congrats. Thank you so much. Yes. Oh, I'm not a native, but I feel like I have been here since August of 96. I thought I knew all the cool places in Atlanta. But you've come up with 111 places that that I can't miss. Now, don't you to divulge all 111, obviously, because I want folks Tio Tio. By the book put for someone That's been here awhile or even Ah, native Give me one or two of spots that that we might not know that we could go check out that be pretty cool. Sure, sure. Well, first of all, I thought under Atlanta before started writing about have been writing a tourism blogged wonder left Atlanta from more than 10 years. Would help me get the contract for the bug. I thought into Atlanta. There's a lot more out there than we realized a couple of my favorite that discovered in the process. One is the gravity monument. It's next to the physics building on the campus of Emory University. Another is the peace treaty at the Atlanta History Center. We have the world's first peace garden, and there's a piece tree. At the weigh in front of the law on this one house at the Learning Center. Go back to the first one. So at Emory University, What is it? What I know right? It's gravity Monument. It's ah! Monument. It looked like a great stone and the guy who placed it, He he lost his baby sister who drowned, so he had this huge grudge against gravity. And a friend convinced him to start a new organisation that would create an environment for learning about gravity. So did they created the gravity Foundation. And they placed on Ly if we're only and few of these in the country, but he placed these monuments at universities around the country. Memory is one of them and schools when they were placed. They got Either cash board their physics programs or stop then we got $5000 well, and look at that. I mean, I've been to Emory many times. I've never heard of that talking to Travis Swan on the market and show the author of 100 Places 111 Place in line. You must not miss Now, when you say Atlanta so The phrase Atlantis turn around pretty liberally. Do you mean the city of Atlanta or the Metro Area? Metro area? I personally believe that you don't get full Atlanta experience unless you go OTP. There's there's a lot of Atlanta is a huge place. And to me the full flavour of Atlanta includes Bot. Yeah, so this isn't just, you know, inside the city limits. How far out do we go? In the book? We go out as far out as Bill. Okay, maybe 10% of the book is That majority of it is inside the perimeter. And what would Ah what would get me to go out to connect that I don't love Carter's. We don't go out there many, many times. But is there a certain attraction in Cartersville that that could draw some folks wind that made me want to put them in the book is the booth Western Art Museum, which is Gorgeous second largest art museum. It's the world's largest exhibition space for Western art, but they have a presidential gallery there. So they have a portrait and a handwritten letter signed by every president from George Washington to present day. What? Yeah. That's amazing. I kind of like, Don't even want to put this interview on the air, so it doesn't get all crowded. I want to go up there and check these out before everyone. That's amazing. So the book is 111 places in Atlanta. You must not miss. I know you've been. You've been writing the block for 10 years. When did the idea for the book comment and how quickly were ableto to get all these places together? So it's a global serious publishers in Cologne, Germany, and about 400 books in the series, so I got to do the one for Atlanta, Um, learned about it through Virginia Willis, local chef that cooks warehouse for a cooking show. Cooking class with Virginia and that I do pre after the class with Peyton. Gotta book sign in Virginia was telling about it. They had approached her. She didn't have time. But she knew my block and have known for years and she introduced us and about a year after that, we went to contract and It took a little over a year to write and photograph the book rare and for the serious I'm the author and photographer. Now how possible would it be for someone like me to knock out a hall? All 111 places? Is this a doable venture? Absolutely. There's also publisher has a 111 places challenge. So if you Sign up at the milestones of 50 75 111 places you can win books from other cities. That sounds awesome. Now was the day that the publishers say all right, You have to come up with 111 places or is that the number? You just landed on publishers in Cologne there? Lucky number 11. Okay, added another one to us with a definite places actually make a buck. And they actually have an annual celebration every year. The starts at 11:11 A.m. on November 11th. That's pretty interesting. So what was what was 112? What just missed. Well, one of the cool things about this is there is a backup list places in case something closes during the next year or so. And just before. Well, actually, yeah, just before I went A book, which print pandemic kid so and there's been one or two closures so that we'll do an update every year, so excellent. Well, I'm excited. I love Atlanta and I love checking out cool new places. I thought I knew everything. But apparently, I know very little about the city that I love. The book is 111 places in Atlanta that you must not this Travis Taylor. Working folks get the book.

"John Waters cult classic Friday the Coast Guard and we hear all kinds of stories because everybody who is anybody nineteen ninety was in that movie drug wars coming off right the talk about that then but for right now I mean how do you have you not start start the show off with what we start our day off with every time Phil Murphy comes out to make an announcement you know it the end this is in anticipation or is it like now what you know that lately we've got we ought to wear masks outside now and the thing that gets me about the masks is I really don't understand why we're all required to wear masks but the mask that we're wearing don't do anything right the N. ninety five mask then is for the healthcare workers that does something the mess that we wear it maybe maybe not cover your face you know make something up and we have to walk around like that okay I get that whatever whatever we can do a couple weeks ago to see the receiver said that is that really makes it does really make a difference if you walk around with masks now we gotta wear masks then comes and you can't go to the parks we're closing all the parks why how the hell you gonna get that this must be one hell of a virus this virus must work out three times a week but this is a must to peloton every day I mean how the hell can the virus in an open air park and you're wearing a mask transmitted self I don't get it and you know what they're a lot of people you know a lot of Republicans don't get it either you know their people were upset about the idea that governor Murphy's closing the parks and I get it I don't understand why we need to do it up so to fold I'm gonna ask you how you feel about having to wear a mask every time you go outside and how you feel about closing the park should they be open you know it's spring break so many kids everybody's cooped up inside of it was going out of their minds everybody is looking to get out the nice weather is changing he's in is it okay to walk around the block but it's not okay to walk through a park I don't get it it's not okay to walk on the beach if you do that then you may congregate oh wait a minute if you have the law the law is you gotta maintain social distance then the law goes for wherever you are if you're walking around your block if you walk in the park so if you've got people not maintaining social distance and you have police and a police given tickets they make up for all the money that they're losing I guess from the tragic thing is that they're not giving away one eight hundred two eight three one a one point five how do you feel about both how do you feel about governor Murphy close in the state parks should we be able to take a walk in the park to escape the the tension and pressure every morning we wake up people having a bad dreams over this now that which is greeted with a corona virus what's going to happen today what do you take it away from us today what can't we do today you know today all non essential construction work starting Friday night out easy orders retail stores that have remained open such as supermarkets to half the number of customers allowed in this store is at any given time wait a minute when we hear this before last night when I said close the supermarkets in noon four seven buddy to go online I was the eighty how dare you I was getting I was getting mocks mocked on my Twitter poll people were saying things to me on this radio station I couldn't repeat now order retail stores that remained open such as supermarkets to half the number of customers allowed in this store is at any given time so what's the difference if you're only allowing half the men to closing half the day I rest my case so how do you feel about it you know how do you feel about the parks how do you feel about the masks do you really think the master helping do you really feel when you put that handkerchief around your neck do you really feel when you put that screen yet when you raise your shirt when you put that scarf up did you being protected knowing that the healthcare workers have something better as well they should and I love the the answer to how the hell they could not have enough mass to go around seriously every time we need something American first thing we do is make it available we tell them I can't get it what else well they make toilet paper they make commercials telling you have to make a pilot paper waste a little bare hands clean I haven't seen him one eight hundred two eight three one oh one point five right the surgical masks I don't understand how would they they they should be able to cover everybody just keep mass producing as far as we're concerned do you really believe that the mask is helping you should we be allowed to wear our masks into the parks yeah park police radio patrols so if you're walking through the park and you're not maintaining social distance an officer comes up any issues your summons you would normally do that because normally they be writing traffic tickets and stuff for them make any money doing traffic tickets anymore what with the everybody staying home here's a way for the municipalities to make money here's a way for us to for them to enforce the law and here's a way for us to get out and enjoy a park on a beautiful sunny day spring break kids a home Easter Sunday or Easter is going to be like you know it's going to be like you know it's going to be like one eight hundred two eight three one oh one twenty five your thoughts run is in freehold New Jersey won a one point five Hey Ron yeah you do it thanks for taking my call like I said Pierce greener you know my wife were seventy nine years old were retired we live in free hold hold small park here we live and if there's twenty people go there to day internet Harpreet like it's beautiful and my my opinion the minute I heard it it has what he doesn't want to do he doesn't he's a politician and he doesn't want a few people that could be offenders that they should receive summonses because I'm not gonna lie coming home form and you have other relatives so what does he do he punishes everybody so this way here it's it's neutral and as far as the masks you know I don't have a problem you're in the store or any sort of business there might be some hope it's going to be in sneeze and respect and you know what that's that's what the mask is protecting it's not what you're going to India which what somebody else made makes you one you I don't know because I heard that now as I heard that the idea of the mask was so that you don't spew on anyone else so I know what and that you know a couple weeks ago it was the best argue to do anything now suddenly the masks are essential well personally I I feel if if everybody's wearing a mask hi I. saves me in your venture some person that second is have enough sense to stay home and and sneezes engineers all over the people around him that that's the primary reason I'm looking at this from the guardian right masks will probably make little difference images walking around town or taking a bus so there's no need to bulk buy a huge supply rugby say they will give me a guy wears a mask hi we don't have a mask I have because the famous guy with a mask the long ranger yeah down the long ranger.

"Book is coming out from director and pope of trash John waters. Mr. know it all the tarnished wisdom of filth elder. That's John waters new book. Are you going to check it out? Most definitely. He is my God. I have to say, I wish that gets today, new John waters a little more, because I feel like he was kind of the LGBT bonding before it became mainstream before light Rupe host drag race and all that we had John waters. We all watched hairspray. We all watched pink, flamingos, and dirty shame and everything divine divine may she rest in peace. She I have to say, though, I need John waters take get off as key Stor. I've had enough books, so dirty shame was the movie with Tracey Ullman and Johnny Knoxville edge. She becomes, like sex holic. I can really relate every time she hits her head she, she becomes the sex Hollick. So obviously dirty shame is the Oscar winning find cinema. But this was back in two thousand four. This was fifteen years ago, very long time a long time ago. So John waters, you know I've had enough books. What better era? Would it be for John waters to come back then, during the Trump era, it would be fabulous, because there's just so much to say it's almost like, oh my God. And like you now you've put me in a mind spin just thinking about the I know there's a lot of little things that I've been wanting John waters to do, just because I like mega fan but. Like for a long time, he had a movie that, like, he like a kid's Christmas movie called fruitcake is going to be with Parker Posey and Johnny Knoxville, how epic would that be very epic? And it was listed on paddock pre-production IMDB for the longest time, but it's not even on IMDB anymore, sods. So I'm guessing they put the Knicks on that. Who knows a Parker Posey, John waters? Movie sounds like it would be legendary. I mean it's an ideal match. While promoting his Lewis book, this is one of the things that John waters says, I miss the days of stonewall when homosexuality was illegal and you could write it. I don't of course, what it to ever be illegal. I think we've made great progress. But at the same time, sometimes I don't want to be like everybody else. I don't want to fit in that speaks to me that does speak to me too, because it's like. Now that we're like mainstream popular. It's like the gay thing doesn't cause moral panic anymore is like the Christian right is not like flipping their lids over you know, like gay dudes are old hat. You know what I mean? I mean or have a brain I think that's what's happening right now. Get your mind. It's like now that everything's mainstream. It's a little more boring. I guess what I was having a conundrum about, and I think it speaks of this topic is when I go out in the world and every single store now every avatar is rainbow and like, really so because this is trendy now. It's trendy now. It's trendy now. We're I'm like, where were you like, you know, a couple of years ago, you know, who did you organize for like, what did your corporation stand for? But now it's now it's cool. Cool. It's like I remember being a little kid and my dad told us that they had seen the gay pride in San Francisco. This was like back in the eighties. So this was very shocking to me. They didn't really understand what it was. And he said, there's a contingent of lesbians on motorcycles, and they had a banner called dykes on bikes and I'm trying to be rude. That was the banner that the actual actually held at because they weren't dyke somebody right? And I just remember thinking it sounded so like counterculture and out there, but when Bank of America's sponsoring gay pride how is not edgy any. No, it, it, it goes back to they just want your money. Just went your money. Yeah. It's like do you actually support me? I just want your money. I don't really care. I mean it's good that we've made that validation, we've made these steps. But at the same time, I kind of miss the days when it was a little more Eero like off the beaten path to get to the club. You had to like it was emission. I think it's the same way feel about marijuana. All right. I'm a huge fan of John waters. So I'm going to check out Mr. know it all, but please, please, John waters. Make us a new movie. Your fans are waiting with baited breath, a lady awaiting, maybe breath. So that's all the hot topics we have for. Day, how much fun is having tea with Charles. I love it.

Great having back on the show and it's nice to meet you, a person shirt, we're gonna sure you wary or it's come to, of course, it is just before we went on the air. We were talking about how last time you're on the show. We dedicated a solid fifteen minutes of our lot of time to discussing designer Rick. How Kubo there you go? Yeah. It's a rock-solid shirt. I enjoy. Thank you. I have a question for you. That occurred to me as I was reading this morning. You've worn your signature moustache for decades. Was it, impart inspired by little Richard's Porsche was? Yeah. I wrote about that. Yes. There was definitely Little Richard before about the platters, the guy in the planet and every store detective, and every thirties movies are had. And yes, so still, I think it was a Little Richard definitely. I mean like Little Richard is a guy who with us to the last one. He is the killer Jerry Lewis is still around as well. But I watch a clip of Little Richard performing in nineteen fifty or nineteen fifty seven that I absolutely cannot believe Israel, like I can't, I can't imagine what it must have been like to hear mayors ITO and then have Little Richard. Come on. We're alive. Remember because I was around that, and I bought that I special to forty five and thing I forget Lucille. I think was the first one. And I remember my grandmother, completely freaking our Little Richard Herman, the antique show, and she heard him scream and Lucille upstairs. What the hell is if she'd seen him, she would have been really tight, but she didn't see him. Do you remember when you saw him? I, I thought I'm impersonal and I interviewed him for playboy. But when I saw him, I was probably on the girl can't help it the movie or maybe on it. Solvent was he on there? I'm sure he was probably and playing piano with that hair doing everything thought, oh my God. It was like a Martian land. Yeah. It was it was the exact opposite of fifties rights bourbon Baltimore where I lived at how I grew up. I mean he came out of like a tent show drag Queen named Princess you Vaughn. That's what he said in his book. But then he denies his book after, you know, he's towards still between religion and little rich. But that was like a that was like this kind of drag Queen that he was was like a thing that went on intent shows and also revival shows to some extent. And like he came out of this whole world. You know, he was the only part of it to ever appear on television, but it's amazing to think that, that could have ever been on television. Like it's, it's outrageous now, it is it is. And, and especially to think that Pat boom would dare cover as the most complete opposite. He must have been so furious when he heard Pat blowing a wall. Bob Luma, a long bamboo and really that was the found a Little Richard doing the dishes in the greyhound bus station. Pretty song came from your new book, which is called make trouble is a commencement speech and commencement speeches, our advice like it's like. Like, here's wisdom that I have. Well, I gave them my wisdom, whatever you could call it. I wouldn't call her wisdom, but it was good practical advice. Okay. So what I want to know is John, I know it took a number of tries to make it out of both high school and college. Well, no, I didn't try at all. The problem I didn't care out or went, so it wasn't like a couple of drive. I wanted to go, and I always said, if I quit school when I was sixteen I would've made one more movie and know exactly what I noted today, but it's different. Now, if I had a kid, I would want him to go to school unless they knew what they wanted to do right from the beginning, then you don't have to go to school. The reason you go to schools to figure out what you wanna do. I always knew I wanted to do was there anyone in your life that you considered wise when you were age of college. Graduation when you were twenty two twenty two I didn't think anybody was right. Well, maybe Jonas, Mika through underground film. Call him in the village voice. There were certain. Yes. Twenty two. I thought people were rushed because I discovered bohemian, no Tennessee Williams and more whole and beat Knicks and all that yet, but twenty two definitely but by then you're an adult when you need those kind of role models. And those things are in your fourteen and trying to figure out what you want to be, and floundering and thinking, let me out of here. What I've thought about suburbia let me out of here. And luckily, I had parents that even though they were horrified by everything. I did. They realize that interest encouraged me in that direction, even though they were completely mortified by the work, you have a little that's right around when I made between two hundred forty six that would be how what year like sixty eight. All right. That's right. When I was making multiple maniacs rights. I was pretty angry and crazy, period. But what did you aspire to be? What did you came next multiple maniacs was trainer reels for forming goes, basically? So I was making a movie. That was basically a punk rock movie before there were even such word. And I never knew what punk was. There wasn't any such thing, but it was a movie to scare hippies. Why did you want to be the filthiest man alive? What, what do I say that with great humor, of course, you know, I'm saying it because I wanted a new extreme I wanted a hippie extreme the hippie suffers too corny for me, even though I was a hippie of the. But at the same time, I didn't want to sit around saying if I had amer- you know, I wasn't not me. We made fun of hippies even though we were we used to go in San Francisco, and wait showgirl on communes doors to have just to cause trouble, your person who's really passionate about connecting with like smartest. Most interesting people that you can find who also disagree with you and are different from you right to a point. I think you have to do to, to know what the other side thinking and to be well rounded. You have to hear the arguments from both sides, even ones you don't agree with, and at least consider what they're saying, even though you don't agree with him. Do you feel like it's important to be charming person. Charm is get away with stuff. Yeah. I'm hoffler. I'm a Carney. I mean you'll hear us great for him. I'm glad you take the time whereas I wouldn't have never to meet you fair trade, right? Yeah. So literally, it's more than fan. Right. Think I guess, and I, I you know, the, the idea of charm came up recently on the show when my guess was a friend of mine guy brand that charm is also something that is extra important at least as he convinced me and his experience, when you are in a hostile world that charm is a really. It's a really important tool to have to have that social, that social grace that fluidity is final sometimes even to your physical loping. Yes. But luckily, I think in America today, I don't feel the world of hostile against me 'cause I'm gay. I'll be honest. I don't feel any prejudice because I'm gay. But that's the world I live. You know, I've worked for seventy years to make sure living around not around. But I don't live in chestnut in, you know, I mean, there's terrible places. Yes. So, but I think it depends where you're from charm has helped me whatever charm, I have is basically humor still, it's like it. You get along with people and I like people that can make me laugh that are polite. And funny and get away like just idiots that are rude. Loud. People are generally, not so funny, usually, they're not so witty like I hate jokes. I wanna hear a joke or please don't tell me joke, but be funny, fine. It's bull's eye. Jesse thorn, I'm talking with John waters. His new memoir, is called Mr. know it all the tarnished wisdom of filth elder. Have you through your career had long term goals or have you focused on short long-term Rovers? I can always find a way to tell stories so long hours, smart enough in are just don't depend on the movies that might not have one day, always wrote books, spoken-word did all different ways. So I had many backup plans, and I think that something that everybody should do no matter what business there. Do you still think about your career in terms of long-term goals? Sure. Yeah. I mean I'd signed a two book deal, I got to my got homework. Yeah. Plenty of homework do you like get up and sit down at a keyboard and not a keyboard? I have evidence, legal pads that I like that. I was so mad. I've used them right? Every book and every movie and recently, they got cheap the paper and I call it the coming. Sent me like boxes of improved newer, higher price paper, they brought out that doesn't curl up and you take it off the pads like the kind used to us, so no, I have two big pens, my evidence wrecked all by hand and everything scotch tape and cut up within the first draft on my sister in the computer. And then, you know, keep going. But I never sit there and type do you feel a burden as does that famous Jay Z lyric? I'm not a businessman. I'm a businessman like do you feel a burden as the head of John waters industries that they're not just an assistant, but probably a few people work for you? I have like a, you know, four people that worked for me. And yes, I feel like yeah. I got a big. I live in four different places. I got a lot of bills every month. Yeah. So I gotta keep thinking of projects. Yeah. Definitely. But I'm in a pretty comfortable position today. Finally, after doing this for fifty years, certainly. And I wasn't always, but certainly pretty much figured it out. Now going fine. Would you be making movies if you could? Well, I got I've had four development deals from Hollywood studios in each time they paid me great. And then they make the movies. So I guess, but the books did better last two books did way better than the last two movies. I did in profit how they were received. So I just stay where they like me. I mean, one of the weird things about movies is the extent to which you don't have control of the process, even even if you're an auditor, I always did on the even with new how to negotiate Hollywood, I think I did the screen, I mean market testing, I did all the stuff and the end big fights. But that big not big. So I'm Alan Smith to take my name off it and put that fake name on it that you do have taken the directors guild gave me the best pension. You can imagine let we take it. You should always be pro union. What did you learn from market, which? Which of your movies got market tested everyone from hairspray on. Okay..
"john waters" Discussed on KTOK
"K. He makes no apologies for who. He is what he does and what he believes. And when you talk to him, you always know exactly where he stands, and that's rare in this world. His name is John waters. Producers of such cult classic hits says, hairspray polyester, and pink flamingos. His new book, is Mr. it all a tarnished. Wisdom of a filth editor John waters. Thanks for joining us in our you really a filth editor. I've been doing this for fifty years. I've gotten away with it in my dreams have come true just puke. You could. I've not read the book yet, but I have been thumbing through it. And just opening to a random page had me laughing out loud, particularly with some of your thoughts about independent film, these days and the Chinese can you expound a little bit? Chinese have got it. So now they don't want with, they don't want in the movie business, and independent film. They want a movie the cost one hundred million dollars that has no subtitles at all. So they don't want dialogue didn't want movie stars. They cost too much they just want to spend it on special effects. So I don't know if that's any more or a science project. To a different venue than I knew. Well, it's affecting the whole movie industry, not just independent, because it seems like every time I turned around. Oh for Christ's sake. Not another superhero movie, I know. But the thing is those movies do incredibly, well, so I'm in you're, we are in the tiny minority of movies. I look the biggest grossing films of your. I thought I don't even know what that movie is. And I get a hundred magazines and I still pay to go the movies all the time. But I'm in the minority, I like feel bad foreign movies and unusually sitting in an empty theater. Do you still sit in the theater? Or do you still watch at home? Or do you mix it up? Oh, completely ten best list, every year for art for magazines art distributor, semi screeners and Baltimore Charles movie theater, I go to the park, way movie theater. So I still do go the movies definitely John waters is with us as latest book, Mr. know it all are you trying to expound upon what you've learned over the years, or is this just a continuation of what you are? Are learning. I think both I think that there's completely up in it that I've researched for this book about how to collect done by monkeys. A different way how to deal with that. So basically I I'm putting. So putting in what I learned from my clawing, my way, up to the top of Hollywood I back down again. And you learn from both success and failure, and it's all good for you in the long run. I was about to ask is there a failure for John waters? It seems to me you are indestructible. Movies. I made didn't make money and I keep saying at the end, you know, probably when I die, maybe the next day, they'll be a bump in the news more. Finally break even. But then that's not a failure. Is it? Yeah. Optimus kind of guy John waters. The name of the book, Mr. know it all a, the tarnished wisdom of a filth elder, one of the things that I that I find your work does is it takes doesn't it? They are no boundaries. First of all, but, but that's a good thing because it takes what so many people are up tight about, and has fun with them. Boundaries because I think that there is such a thing as bad, bad taste that isn't funny, and it's and it doesn't change anything and it doesn't get you to think of something in a new way. But yes, I purposely take you into a world. But some may be uncomfortable with my readers feel safe. I'm their guide and I'd take them through it. And I'm not asking you to move into that world. I'm asking you to explore it in a new way and try to understand why people behave the way they do along those lines John waters and the book, Mr. know it all if you could take what where our social sensibilities in the United States have come and put put that back into the head of John waters circa nineteen seventy but what do you think he would feel like? Well, they wouldn't be that different. Nixon was about to. Political ways very similar in a way, and there was certainly a civil war going on into it was to be more everything then I was very. The protest movement. So the only thing I don't understand today is why kids aren't why are you studying? They're in the streets. So I don't think it is that difference in some ways, and in some ways it's gotten so much better. And in some ways, it hasn't changed at all the things nobody talks about the most dangerous, which is definitely racial problems. Well, I guess specifically, I was thinking along the lines of transgenderism and homosexuality. You've always gone right, for that and had no problem if featuring that in books and movies of yours and. The new one I heard about babies that's where you're not supposed to tell your child what sex they are until they discover it themselves. And I'm not marching for babies either. I have limits to John waters in his book, Mr. know it all, and he has learned a lot, especially as he considers himself a filth elder. I was reading through some of the things that you say about people who come to see you and the gifts. They bring you right? Or god. Bring me. Good gifts, mostly. Yeah. Yeah. Well, one in particular was something you really weren't going to carry on an airplane were you? Well, I forget people bring me these giant portrait are, how am I supposed to take over my carry on luggage, fourteen to work? But I'm trying to remember which thing you're talking about, but people have given me great gifts. But I always tell them to send it to a Tomic books in Baltimore because. People pretty much know that I'm and I it's, it's the best bookshop. I love him Baltimore. John waters is with us on NewsRadio one thousand KT. Okay. And the new book, Mr. know it all this is the tarnished wisdom of a filth elder. I don't think it's tarnished at all. I think there's a lot of wisdom in the book and it's going to tarnish meaning that it's you know, gone through on this been on it too long. It's still there. You can you can polish it. We've seen the many incarnations of your movie creations, like hairspray. Do you have anything on the horizon that you're working on, or has independent film, come become arduous to you? Well, no, I been the differences. They want to make it for a million dollars budget instead of seven which I can't go backwards. I, I can't be an anarchist. I own. Kick-started, what am I supposed to say to people? Would you work for nothing? I haven't done this before I made seventeen movies. But so. I think it's a different time. You go through everything my books, do better than.

So I've seen Anderson Cooper in Andy Cohen. And I I even though I absolutely hate her. I thought it was interesting watching Kathy Griffin have a meltdown on Twitter because that would have been her night to work the one night where where people where she got some attention when she used to co host with Anderson Cooper on CNN's new year show was fired. So she decided to like rightfully spill the beans about a whole bunch of stuff. And and you know, was it true. Or wasn't it true shocked about how she worked there and didn't get a paycheck for so many years. Do they just sort of doing the New Year's thing is favor? And then finally started the pair, and then she went in and asked for a raise one day, and they cut her by thirty percent. I'll be honest. She put that as as a sad sack story. And I laughed when I read it. So because I can't because I cannot stand her. But she is part of her story. Also was that? She's like, yeah. And so I was making you know, and I think the figure she said one hundred and fifty thousand which was ridiculous for what one night's work on. Yeah. That's not goes an Anderson Cooper kept going around telling everyone. He was making ten million no way. Here.
