The Other John



[American filmmaker John Waters]

Spare a thought.

“I know about it [Pantigate] because I get the same Google alert with our names that he [journalist John Waters] probably does! Ha! I remember giving an interview in Ireland once and at first the woman reporter was so mean to me, I couldn’t figure what the problem was but then half way through she threw her hands up and screamed “You’re not THAT John Waters” and then was really nice. Let’s just say we don’t save each other’s press clippings...”

John Waters in an email to Paul Duane about the recent homophobia furore.

Thanks Paul Duane

    Why would the female reporter be mean to our John Waters?

    Sure aren’t journalists supposed to be objective and treat their subjects fairly and with respect?

      I think we need to seek and destroy that journalist.

      Who in the fupp would do that? Interview someone without actually knowing who the person is?

      If she was capable of mixing up the two John Waters, it’s fair to say she wasn’t exactly the sharpest tool in the box.

      Greetings and salutations. Welcome to our planet. The definitions you have read from books and other publications often differ from reality, and it is often confusing even for those of us who have spent our whole lives on this planet. For more information please refer to cynical definitions of “journalist” and in this particular context see “columnist”.

    Dirty shame he hasn’t made a good film since hairspray.

    Fair play to him for commenting though.

    I always thought it was John Waters [The Journalist] who was the stuntman behind the ass scene in John Waters Pink Flamingos? No?

      I loved those albums from the seventies. “Wish you were here” was the best. His solo stuff isn’t that great.

    We should get the two of them to do a televised debate.

    “The meeting of the Waters”.

    Thanks, I’m here all week.

      I love this John Waters he’s very witty, I think a debate between him and the Irish one would be very entertaining, great idea Jaden.
