Beside the Still Waters of Baltimore

My quick weekend jaunt to Baltimore, Maryland was an unheralded success -- I booked it down for 36 hours in order to see John Waters' art show titled "Indecent Exposure" at the Baltimore Museum of Art, which runs through January 6th and I definitely, definitely recommend. I mean...

... one of the first thing you see when you walk into the exhibit is a Michael Jackson Baby hanging out with a Charles Manson Baby, and it only gets nuttier (by which I mean more brilliant) from there. And even besides his cunning ruminations on our world of trash there are some stunning shots of his Dreamlanders scattered about...

Oh Cookie, my beloved. If you'd like more photos that I took of the show check 'em out on my Instagram. As you can see up top I also wandered the streets of Baltimore doing a brief JW-inspired tour -- I found the four-story tall mural of Divine, which is located at 106. E. Preston St., and I also managed to find the most stretch where Divine ate dog shit in Pink Flamingos too. I also saw a woman on a deserted nighttime street downtown scream, "Rats! Rats!!!" as she ran off through some billowing steam, so Baltimore truly lived up to the hype.

You should've gone to Ottobar and Club Charles--2 of his regular haunts. Have seen him at both.
