Someone over at TLC must be a John Waters fan!  In homage to Polyester’s Odorama cards, the 2nd season premiere of HERE COMES HONEY BOO BOO will feature the gimmick, Watch-n-sniff!  The smelly cards can be picked up in the July 15th issue of People Magazine (Matthew Perry cover) and also the July 22nd issue of US Weekly (Kate Middleton cover).  And, of course, we must also remember that John Waters got the idea for Odorama from William Castle’s Smell-o-Vision and also AromaRama.  So whether you hate to love her or love to hate her, the show has a gimmick that I can appreciate and to be quite honest, they are a loving family and I absolutely look up to them.  I’m ready to get a WHIFF this Wednesday!
Also, for any new followers of this blog or for long time followers who are wondering why the hell I haven’t posted much lately:  I’m posting more frequently on the Trashy Travels facebook page.  The photo albums there allow you to quickly find the John Waters locations you want versus digging through pages and pages of the tumblr.

Is JOHN WATERS coming to a city near you? Here’s a handy calendar to help you keep track of him in the coming months. He’ll be appearing in each of these places in one form or another. To find out the venue, I’d suggest using the google machine to search “John Waters” and then the city and date!
PS: Sorry I spelled Poughkeepsie wrong in the image.  I can never have nice things.
PSS:  I know, I know…I’m mad too.  He’s not coming to a city near me either.
PSSS:  Are you following Trashy Travels on Facebook yet?

So I nervously met Traci Lords yesterday and gave her the photo of me posing like Wanda from John Waters’ Cry-Baby.  Thankfully, she loved it AND tweeted it!  She’s my kind of gal!  If you haven’t heard it yet, check out her hot new track, ‘LAST DRAG’!

Everyone’s favorite neighbor (Mink Stole as Dottie Hinkle) lived at 618 Lake Drive, Towson, MD in John Waters’ Serial Mom! Of course, Beverly Sutphin would like us all to think she really lived at 4215 Pussy Way.  You also get a peak at 620 Lake Drive just as Beverly Sutphin is about to drive by. “Cocksucker, that’s what she calls me!”

The original Tracy Turnblad wrote a book!  Ricki Lake’s Never Say Never: Finding a Life That Fits hits shelves today!  It includes a foreword by John Waters and pictures of Ricki Lake with Divine that I’ve never seen before!
In other Divine news, I’ve been slacking with this Tumblr lately because I’ve been working on another Divine project that it sure to be a smash!  (Details to hopefully come soon)  Plus, my regular job has been hectic so it’s been much easier to post on on the Trashy Travels facebook page.  So, please, join me there!  Or, in the words of Poltergeist’s Tangina, "Cross over children, all are welcome, all welcome!"
And finally, be sure to check out my Trashy John Waters related t-shirts designed by me!

1983’s The House on Sorority Row was filmed in a suburb of Baltimore using the  talents of John Waters Dreamlanders Vince Peranio and Robert Maier.  Even Pecker’s Memama (Jean Schertler, FULL OF GRACE!) had a bit part as a nurse!
The 1912 Colonial country mansion (aka Eltonhead) where filming took  place was rumored to have been torn down.  But after 30 years it’s only  been converted into 4 townhomes & completely surrounded by new roads  and homes.  Just to be sure I found the right location, I’ve supplied an old aerial photo that  shows where the famous swimming pool used to be!
A brand new 2-disc dvd was just released and you can even read about the day John Waters showed up on the set in Robert Maier’s Low Budget Hell:  Making Underground Movies with John Waters
And, as luck would have it, the main part of the house (1 of the 4 townhomes) was for sale recently and you can see a picture of the staircase looking exactly like it did in the movie.
And finally, here’s where it is:
26 Bellchase  Court, Pikesville, MD 21208*
This is a newer address given to the  house after the surrounding development began.  The mansion used to have  a long, winding driveway that led to Park Heights Avenue.

Did everyone get their cha-cha heels for Christmas?  Located at 200 E North  Ave Baltimore, MD 21202, the old Polytechnic Institute was used for the  school scenes in John Waters’ Female Trouble. I do not know (yet) if the rooms where filming  took place survived the changes made to this site.  The gabled  structures still remain but the buildings between them have gone through  several incarnations.  Today, it is the home of the Baltimore City  Schools Headquarters!
