A John Waters Christmas

If there is a more entertaining Christmas show than the John Waters, I have not heard it. Several years ago, John Waters compiled a Christmas record made in heaven for guys like me, sharing his treasures for one brief and shining moment. These aren't necessarily classics - they’re not necessarily even good - but each and every song is a bona fide rarity, and most of them are cracked, bent, and/or goofy.This is a party platter of rare R&B that's a nonstop Christmas party on the other side of the tracks. While the parents are having their cocktail party and listening to the Harry Simeone Chorale, the kids are in the basement dancing the frug and making out to this album. Waters has eclectic tastes; thus the selection. Certainly not for the faint of heart.

John Waters will be coming to the Sheldon Concert Hall on December 14 for a presentation of his one man show, A John Waters Christmas. The past shows of his have dived deep in to the most probing yuletide questions one could have: Is Prancer the only gay reindeer? Has Santa ever been nude? and more profanity laced lunacy with a clear cut message. Waters has not lost one bit of sarcasm or quirkiness that created his own brand of cult phenomenon. And as the holidays approach and you have your own dysfunctional family to deal with and you need a laugh, just remember these words by John Waters: ”I love Christmas so much I could shit."

St. Louis-based production company Red Fist Productions is collaborating with both local and out-of-state talent on "Batman: Master of Fear", an original, fanmade web series that is planned to begin production in the area next spring. With a cast that includes Raw Leiba (last year’s award-winning "Bone Tomahawk" with Kurt Russell) and Seth Michaels (this year’s "Pelé: Birth of a Legend"), as well as concept and storyboard art by St. Louis-based Shannon Peterson, "BMOF" has been building quite a buzz online.

Elope? In Kirkwood?

by Elope In St. Louis

To elope means "to run away with a lover, especially with the intention of getting married." Sounds romantic, right? But why Kirkwood, Missouri?

Birthday Cake At The Arch

by Mke Matney

In an attempt to capture as many of the birthday cakes being put out in the region for the city's 250th birthday I headed down to the Arch grounds. I'm always trying to find an angle on the Arch that doesn't look like a typical tourist shot so I brought along my fish eye lens. I was able to get this one with the birthday cake in the foreground. A bit of processing in Photoshop was required to give it the look I wanted and I'm happy with the result.
