So everyone under the sun has linked to the story of how indie band Here We Go Magic picked up a hitchhiking John Waters, because it is an awesome story and everyone should link to it. But mulling it over for a couple of hours, I wondered why Waters’ hitching rang a very faint bell. And then, eureka! I had my answer, which dates all the way back to December 2011:


Film director, actor, writer, and visual artist John Waters’s untitled “undercover travel adventure,” to Jonathan Galassi of Farrar, Straus, who published Waters’ memoir Role Models last year, by Bill Clegg at William Morris Endeavor (NA). 

Yup, it’s for his next book. Cannot wait to read the finished travelogue, sir!
