I was always hoping I’d get invited over for afternoon tea or a Justin Bieber-themed dinner party, but I’ll settle for Rookie Mag’s photo tour of John Waters’s Baltimore home.

True to form, there are plenty of kitschy books (I’m Fifteen… And I Don’t Want to Die!), art objects (a Yoshitomo Nara ashtray), photos of ladies with big hair, fake cats, and… plastic food. Why not?

One perfect touch: Waters’s “idea board” is topped with the classic BELIEVE bumper sticker, rearranged to read BE EVIL. Also appreciated:  the subtle shout-out to Baltimore superstars Wye Oak. John Waters has good taste!

I can think of nothing more Waters-esque than these action figures of famous pop-culture accidents (Britney flashing the paparazzi; Michael Jackson dangling his baby off a balcony).

Check out the rest of the photos here.
