john waters cfda awards 2014Last night, John Waters hosted the prestigious Council of Fashion Designers Awards (CFDA) in New York at Alice Tully Hall in Lincoln Center. And he did not shy away from his usual wit and sharp tongue. I'm sure he ruffled some feathers, and not just the ones attached to ridiculous, overpriced gowns.

Hey Dreamlanders! Only a few weeks until the release of CARSICK. Have you ordered your copy yet? He'll be appearing in San Francisco at the The Green Arcade for a discussion and book signing on release day, June 9

Pre-Order Carsick: John Waters hitchhikes across America

The one and only Mink Stole is participating in "The Naked Eye," a benefit auction for MIX NYC, the non-profit that runs the annual New York Queer Film Festival. Along with 149 other celebs, Mink was given a disposable camera and asked to take every photo on the roll, and autograph the camera. The results are left undeveloped in the camera, so the winning bidder gets to take the film in and see what develops - literally!

And while we're on the topic of Mink, she'll be appearing at a screening of POLYESTER on June 21 at Pittsburgh's Hollywood Theater, complete with Odorama cards and an optional meet-and-greet with the star herself.

And finally, if you're in P-Town this summer, John will be performing THIS FILTHY WORLD at Provincetown Town Hall on July 14. And it will double as a book signing / meet and greet. Tickets are already on sale!

If you live in the Baltimore area, check out the Maryland Film Festival, running from May 7-11. John Waters will be presenting the film Abuse of Weakness, by director Catherine Breillat on May 9. The story centers around a filmmaker who suffers a stroke and, as she is recovering, starts a relationship with a known hustler. Sounds charming!

Hey kids! As of today, I'm finally publishing Dreamland News updates to FACEBOOK. Better late than never, right? Please visit our new page and give us a LIKE!

https://www.facebook.com/dreamlandnews

I'll continue to publish news to this page as well, but I think Facebook is a great opportunity get news in your social feed, and for fans to connect with each other, rather than relying on this site to do that. I'll still be happy to highlight out of the ordinary fans, so if you'd like to be one of the few, the featured, please visit this page and send me a submission.

The page is in it's infancy for now, so when you visit, post a word or two to get things started. And over the next year, I'll build it out with more content and features as we go.
