Last night I went to the Birchmere in Alexandria, Virginia to see John Waters’ stand-up Christmas show. It’s becoming a holiday tradition for me as this is the fifth year in a row that I’ve gone to his funny, clever, illuminating, and naughty Christmas stand-up routine at the Birchmere.

There was a terrific story in the New York Times last week about John Waters’ Christmas cards. The photo of Waters’ accompanying the story was taken by the great photographer Greg Gorman. Greg also photographed Govinda Gallery manager David Murray over 20 years ago, while David was visiting LA in the spring of ’92 when he was 10 years old. David went with me to the show at the Birchmere last night with his wife Ashley and Govinda artist Carlotta Hester and I introduced him to John backstage after his show. I brought a print of Gorman’s photo of David from 1992 with me and showed it to John, which he enjoyed seeing very much.

Greg Gorman’s photos are available through Govinda Gallery.
