Who said, “I thank God I was raised Catholic, so sex will always be dirty”? Yep, it's John Waters' filthy world, we just dirty it up. The esteemed purveyor of pscum gives a “one-man spoken word lecture” — um, redundant much? — called “This Filthy World.” After the director-writer-mustache-owner talks film shop and shares what inspires him, the floor will be opened up to questions.

And don’t forget to mention how you dress up as Divine every Halloween and throw Egg Lady parties. He just loves to hear that stuff.
