John Waters give a bad interview? It can't be done. The Baltimore filmmaker just chatted in his typical no-holds-barred way with Broward/Palm Beach New Times as a prelude to a Florida performance of his one-man show "This Filthy World. " That he executed the phone interview without pants on was just one revelation. In the two-part interview, done with the publication from his Provincetown, Mass., summer home -- while wearing boxers with a Gap T-shirt -- Waters talked about everything from favorite books and music to one of the outfits he packed for his recent cross-country hitchhiking tour.

Here's something you don't see every day: a museum dedicated to spreading "history, rumors and downright lies." That's the motto of Provincetown Tales, a new museum opening this month in Provincetown, Mass., a beach town that draws thousands of visitors to Cape Cod each year. Rumors and legends often have as much weight as factual history, says Ginny Binder, the project's creator. "This is about taking part in your own history, not about institutionalizing and formalizing it." Provincetown Tales is what Binder calls a "story museum."

Herman Maril had two worlds, and each provided him what something the other lacked. The artist, who was born in Baltimore in 1908 and died here in 1986, spent his life painting some of the grittier aspects of the city. Invariably, his astute and affectionate eye discovered the aesthetic appeal of even the homeliest objects. But for nearly every summer of Maril's adult life, he took his family to the beach in Provincetown, Mass., filling canvases with the ever-changing interplay of water and light.

Steve Yeager appears caught off-guard when asked if he set out to earn a reputation as a filmmaker focusing on Baltimore's marginalized. The thought, it seems, has never really occurred to him. And yet, it's an obvious question. His first narrative film, 1990's On the Block, the story of a stripper struggling to go legit, was set and filmed in Baltimore's notorious red-light district. His biggest success, 1998's award-winning documentary Divine Trash, chronicled Baltimore's merriest bunch of misfits, the cast and crew of John Waters' reprobate 1972 masterpiece, Pink Flamingos.

John Waters, provocateur of screen, stage, print and gallery, has rarely been as brave as he is in his new essay, "Leslie Van Houten: A Friendship." This chapter from his forthcoming collection, "Role Models" (due out from Farrar, Straus and Giroux next May), depicts the rehabilitation of a member of the Charles Manson cult. It's also a candid rumination on Waters' own extremist sensibility in the 40th anniversary year, not just of Woodstock and Altamont and "John Waters' Mondo Trasho," but also of the Manson family's apocalyptic killing sprees at the homes of Sharon Tate and Leno and Rosemary LaBianca.

The water is chilly. The parking prices are steep, at $10 a day, and so is the climb up the 30-foot dunes to get something to drink. When the weekend sun shines and the wind dies down, the sand is packed virtually blanket-to-blanket with people.And White Crest Beach in Wellfleet, on the outer reach of Cape Cod, may be the best beach you'll ever set foot on.It's not a beach that coddles you like the warm bath of the Caribbean, or spoils you like your favorite resort. It takes a sort of dizzy determination to even get your head wet.But arrive at low tide on a clear, warm day, when its sandbars and tidal pools nestle each other in a curving yin and yang of beige and blue.
