How do I become
a Dreamland Fan?

Please welcome Guy Mazzaglia...

"After witnessing the grumpy-eating scene in Pink Flamingos on video at a friend's back in 1983, and laughing so loud and hard that both me and my friend were thrown out of the house at 2:30 am, I decided I HAD to see any and all films I could get my hands on - ASAP! Who the @*%! were these people?! What kind of warped (and wonderful) mind, besides mine, could be putting on screen the kinds of images I had been envisioning all my life?

John became an instant idol and has been ever since. Divine started his club act right about the same time and came to a local club to perform his disco tunes. Again, I was awestruck and Divine, too, became an obsession.

At "An evening With John Waters", a lecture in May of 95 at Atlanta's Fox Theater, I was enjoying seeing John live, listening to his anecdotes and awesome one-liners. Because I never was handed a questionaire card for John at the door, I didn't get a chance to pose a question to him. But at the end of answering his questions, he uttered that he had time to answer one more question.

I jumped up like a freaking moron and yelled "YO, RIGHT HERE!", like some horny biker at an all-you-can-grab titty bar! Anyway, I got his attention. All I could think of was if he was planning to use Kim McGuire (Hatchetface from Crybaby) again in future films, because I loved her bizarre face. John said, "Well, for Christ's sake, she's not actually THAT ugly!". The tone in his voice was really funny, and the whole theater erupted in laughter. I have to say, having him looking directly at me for the next minute or so while he explained to the audience who Kim was and expound on it, was one of the most unexpectedly big moments in my life. I'll never forget that evening.

I also got into a shove match with some overzealous John Waters fan at Colony Records in Times Square in NYC in '92 over whether it was he or I that saw a JW autograph for sale first. He shoved me first, I swear, Mommie! I ended up getting the autographed photo. He's the King of Everything, in my book. Worth the money, worth the shove match, and well worth my time, any time! There will probably never be another team like Divine/John Waters. I am working on a scrapbook for all things related to John, Divine, and his movies and I want to call it Life In Dreamland."
