Mr. Know-it-all: The Tarnished Wisdom of a Filth Elder is out today! Did you get your copy? I am currently sitting in my office angrily glaring at the front door waiting for the goddamned mail-person to walk in with mine, my head clouded with thoughts like...
the Pope of Filth over at NPR today (thx Mac) -- here's a bit that got me to literally cackle loudly:
"Some of the people that I would bring home, my friends, [my mother] would be horrified, but she was polite. I remember when we made Multiple Maniacs [a 1970 film about psychotic killers who perform in a traveling sideshow] at my parents' house and filmed the "Cavalcade of Perversion" [the sideshow act] on the front lawn. Divine came in afterwards in a bloody one-piece white woman's bathing suit carrying an ax, and my mother served us tea, as if Princess Di had come over!"
