John Waters on Hitchhiking Across America for ‘Carsick’:


What about the experience changed you?



"I think my street cred went up. I know that I could always do that if I had to. I know that I won’t ever be stuck anywhere. I don’t ever want to do it again. There’s no reason to. But it made me think that the people in the middle of the country are more open minded than the people in the art/film world on both coasts. They aren’t so predictable, at least the people that pick up hitchhikers. Now maybe that’s a special type of person, which would make sense."

Who is allowed to claim a love for poetry; who has enough knowledge to be ‘accepted’ into intellectual circles; who qualifies to be believed as a true disciple - these are the low cost stratagems employed to protect their own perches by the very insecure.
