just watched the john waters film 'pecker.' the only thing i knew prior to watching was how 'pecker' got his nickname. rented solely for a cheap thrill, i knew full well waters never disappoints, providing loads of campy, abhorrent behavior for shock thirsty souls like myself. i didn't realize the movie actually revolves around an emerging artist who quickly becomes disenchanted with his new adoring art world. "even better," i thought. a satirical look at my very own profession.

and perhaps the biggest shock of all, was the reference to, none other than, art critic extraordinaire coagula..i had to re-play the b-bar scene 3 or 4 times to make sure it wasn't the niquil talking. yup. someone off camera definitely whispers,

"be careful of that guy over there..he's from 'coagula.' it's a magazine."

other notable quotes from this film.. (in my opinion, each equally hilarious, typifying waters' gospel of raunch')

1. "talk god damn it!" (grandma to a virgin mary doll)
2. "i need to see some gay I.D., or you're outta here!"
3. "i hate modern photography!"
4. "shelly! i love you more than kodak!"
5. "pubic hair causes crime."

i can't think of a better endorsement than that! i just watched the director's commentary version of the movie..one of the few times i've bothered doing that, just cuz he's such a fun personality, great story teller. that man could recite the farmer's almanac and i'd be riveted.

so, did you know about that line prior to its release? i kept looking to see if you were actually in the film, but all i could see was patty hearst checking her reflection in the bar mirror..and then i kept checking to see if one of the many magazine reviews shown were mock 'coagulas.'

He added it during post-production, it was just too kind of him, still blows me away whenever someone discovers it!

too funny. i JUST mailed you a package the other day, and then this 'pecker' reference magically appeared, and this morning i wrote a review for your mag on amazon. got coagula on the brainy wainy..

really mat, i'm not a stalker.. honest ;-D

oh, and i tried to email you a couple weeks back. maybe they got spaminated? (i didn't put 'mat' in the subject, now that i think of it..) anyway, i have 2 shops that will carry coagula if you're interested. one a cool little newsstand in montrose and the other a hip coffee house in la canada. i have all the details, names, addresses etc. you can send the copies to me and i'll distribute, or whatever's easiest. i'll even come pick them up if that's more convenient. i aim to pleese..just spreadin' the coagula gospel!
