Trashy Travels Highlights Baltimore’s Cinematic Side

0 Written by: | Monday, Oct 17, 2011 12:00am

Ever wonder if the Presbyterian Church you drive by in Sykesville may have doubled as an orphanage in John Waters’ Cry-Baby? Want to know the address of the house where Divine licks the bannister in Pink Flamingos?

Well, now there’s a website for that. Josh McCullough’s blog Trashy Travels is building a map of the Baltimore area one John Waters location at a time.

The site is filled with so much information (however unorganized), and is updated so frequently, that it’s hard to believe McCullough doesn’t live in Baltimore, or in Maryland at all. He runs the site out of Columbus, Ohio.  He says he “fell in love” with Baltimore during a visit here in 1999. Ten years later he came again hoping to make pilgrimages to film locations of the notorious Baltimore director. To his disappointment, the Internet yielded little or no help, so he decided to start his own website to fill that void.

In two short years the Trashy Travels tumblr site has gained 763 followers, and the facebook page boasts over 2,000 fans.

The site even caught the attention of filmmaker Jeffrey Schwarz, who has asked McCullough to come to Baltimore in May to be interviewed for Schwarz’s upcoming documentary about John Waters’ legendary muse, entitled I Am Divine.
