"When John Waters delivered his gleefully subversive advice to the graduates of the Rhode Island School of Design in 2015, the speech went viral, in part because it was so brilliantly on point about making a living as a creative person. From an icon of popular culture, here is inspiring advice for artists, graduates, and anyone seeking happiness and success on their own terms. Now we all can enjoy his sly wisdom in a manifesto that reminds us, no matter what field we choose, to embrace chaos, be nosy, and defy outdated critics"-- Provided by publisher.

"Listen to your political enemies, especially the smart ones, and then figure out a way to make them laugh. Nobody likes a bore on a soapbox."

So much truth.

With KU's graduation in full form this weekend, it was not surprising that I reached out for John Waters' commencement speech that he recently gave at the Rhode Island School of Design. Waters has always excelled at making people laugh at subjects that are socially considered un-laughable and I can't think of a better marriage than with one of the premiere art schools in the U.S. I not only laughed; I cried while laughing! I also felt like I was among those lucky enough to attend. And for free...which cannot be said by those students or their parents. Thank goodness for public libraries and John Waters!
