Big Loss: Oversized Model & Actress Jean Hill Passes Away Comments (0)

Tumblr_l8pj65VzeC1qd5bvoAs "Grizelda Brown" in Desperate Living 36 years ago.

380658_451794238177818_1185672254_nJean Hill, ubiquitous on gag, weight-themed greeting cards in the '70s and one of the stars of the John Waters...let's go with "classic"...Desperate Living (1977), has passed away. Her cards were characterized by a gleeful exploitation of her race and her weight, always in a harmless, disarming way.

This information was posted on her Facebook page:

Whistling Past The Graveyard: CRY-BABY Cast Reunites @ Hollywood Forever Comments (0)

Greg-GormanPhoto by Greg Gorman.

Much of the original cast of the loony John Waters musical Cry-Baby (1990)—including last-minute surprise Johnny Depp—reunited at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery for a screening and panel Q&A.

The event doubled as a tribute to the late Johnny Ramone.

Depp had "the perfect hair for it," according to Waters.

DeppIncredible to me that this movie is 23 years old already. I remember getting invited to a free screening in Chicago. I was in college at the time so a free movie was an amazing gift, plus I was a huge Waters fan. It's not a great movie, but it's a really good one with some truly twisted moments that stand out even now—the iron-lung courtroom scene, Depp's fabulous fake tears, the French-kissing scene, "Hatchet Face."

Traci Lords was fab in it; I fully expected a full-on Hollywood career to follow. Not so much! But she did put out a killer album and was lovely in person when I met her at an autograph show.

Two Dozen Huge Cocks, One Opening Comments (10)

Photo My friend Gordon reminded me of the David "Old Reliable" Hurles opening happening at Marianne Boesky tonight, but I was in a T-shirt and shorts so worried I'd be underdressed. Then I realized that since the 1970s drifter models of this famous porn shooter are all undressed (and completely aroused), I figured I'd be fine.


With provocative artist Slava Mogutin 

The show has a tight edit of some of Hurles's best work, for sale in limited editions of 5 @ $1,500. Seeing his street-trash angels in black-and-white and in a gallery setting is definitely an interesting experience; his work oozes eroticism because the photographer was not, shall we say, just some passive observer—these men turned him on.


With Dian—where she goes, big dicks follow! 

It was a fun night. I got to see my friend Dian Hanson, co-curator of the show with John Waters, as well as Waters. I had a clever remark to make before asking for a photo, but he cut me off to say, "Okay, let's do it quickly before it starts," meaning everyone would want one...but everyone had already gotten one. So that was a bummer.


Choppy Waters 

More excitingly, I got to meet Slava Mogutin, some of whose work I actually own, and to see Charles Hovland, who was an old reliable photographer for me himself.


My sidekick Charles 

Check out the Hurles show if you get a chance.

Lypsinka Or Swim Comments (2)

I'm mortified that I got a star sighting wrong! I never do. But at least I had enough sense not to go up and ask the wrong person to confirm my wrongness, and at least the wrongly sighted celeb—John "Lypsinka" Epperson—had the grace to respond to my recent John Waters post to confirm my mistake in the kindest possible way. 

I saw Lypsinka perform at a Chicago club about 20 years ago, where she signed a dollar bill for me, so John's kind offer to accept a drink from me is quite exciting. Though in these trying times, I think it might be just as social to offer to pay someone's monthly cable bill.

Waters Still Runs Comments (10)


Waters_christmas Two nights ago, I went alone to a screening of Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes. I don't mind doing things alone, but two nights in a row? After the headache-inducing Holmes, and like a jealous, Watson-less Holmes, I had a date with myself for A John Waters Christmas at the B.B. Blues Club and Grill on West 42nd here in Manhattan, just a few blocks from where I live and an even fewer from where I work. This kind of thing would have been unimaginably posh-sounding to me back when I was a teen in Flushing, Michigan, discovering Waters's films on VHS and feeling like I was the only person in the state who "got" them.


Fun as it might have been, it was still going alone to an event three days before the end of my tenure as a 40-year-old. (Half empty v. half full.)
