“I don’t even think there is bad taste anymore. American humor is bad taste — that’s what we import, that’s what television is about, reality television is based on that. I think it kind of ruined bad taste, because you’re asked to feel superior to the subject matter, which I don’t think I ever do. I think I always look up to my subjects, which is maybe what good taste is. Extreme taste is more interesting to me now than good or bad.”- Director John Waters, lamenting that reality TV has destroyed the kitsch value of his work.
