This is a great track. Mr. Waters in endlessly fascinating with tons of stories about things that inspired gags in the movie, like the scene in the taxi cab. He also talks about the Holiday House and Harford Rd. and shooting on the street. Apparently the people who own the houses were really nice about all the noise they were making in the middle of the night. He also has really funny stories about planes and parties. He reminisces about all the inspirations for the movie, and all the terms. Oh, the dialogue. He points out every single euphemism and term he used in the movie, describes them, and if applicable, how he came to know the particular term. Itís a great listen and is fascinating from beginning to end, as Mr. Waters has had lots of interesting experiences. He does repeat a lot of the stories he says in the doc, like the way he came to know the Holiday House. On the other hand, thereís very little dead air. Do note, though, that the track is about as NC-17 as the movie.
