Adventures in blurbery.

From the back of A.M. Homes's This Book Will Save Your Life:
"If Oprah went insane, this might be her favorite book." --John Waters.

(It's sad that John goes out on a limb invoking Insane Oprah, then qualifies it with that "might.")

From the promo sticker on the front of Matmos's The Rose Has Teeth in the Mouth of a Beast:
"Featuring Antony, the Kronos Quartet, Björk, Don Bolles, recordings of anonymous sex at Blow Buddies during the Bear Festival, etc."

(1: You know this isn't the first time Kronos has shared a bill with anonymous sex from Blow Buddies. 2: The "etc." is so excellent.)

One of my favorite John Waters critical comments is from his Top Ten Films of 2004 list in ArtForum. Of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (No. 10) he writes:
"Jim Carrey used to look like Tex Watson's mug shot, but in this film he's the handsomest man in Hollywood. Most Artforum readers will want to have sex with him."
