Our very own David Green got to hang out with JOHN WATERS and talk about his new book, Carsick — I am so jealous, I think I’m gonna run out and die for art!

On the people he met along the way and whether he turned them into movie characters
I didn’t have to turn them into extreme characters to be interesting to me. What was interesting to me was how matter-of-fact they were about being kinda great, and being accepting and being completely unjudgmental, but at the same time trying to help people — that farmer that gave me money, or that other woman who wouldn’t leave until I took the money. …
It reaffirmed my belief in the goodness of people. They treated me very nicely — that had nothing to do with any kind of fame or seeing me on a talk show or that kind of stuff, so that was very comforting to me. Now, some of the people when they would ask me what I do, I would tell them and they didn’t even believe me.
But I didn’t care, I mean, I wanted to talk about them. And the ones that did, then I’d give them what they want. I’d tell them anecdotes about movie stars and everything they wanted to hear. That’s fair. That’s my job! I got picked up hitchhiking! Your job is to talk. Or have sex. And no one asked.

Heard this spot today. Definite buy for me!

Mona Pavilions by Fender Katsalidis Architects

Bold, diamond shaped steel frames anchored to the ground by large, off form concrete blades. Weathered timber clad boxes to the rear slip between these steel structures.
