After swearing off his (five-part) "Jersey Trilogy" forever with the release of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
in 2001, Kevin Smith (already busy with Fletch Won
and The Green Hornet
that View Askew
is preparing a Clerks
sequel, entitled Clerks 2: The Passion of the Clerks
. The movie "is about what happens when that lazy, 20-something malaise lasts into your 30s."
Since many of us were among those the "lazy 20-somethings" that launched Smith's career, this raises a few questions, most of which are inside
. The simple one, though, is this: Is anyone still buying what he's selling? For what it's worth, I am.

Movie Poop Shoot
started its web life last year as an in-joke
(warning: work-unsafe imagery) for Kevin Smith
's film Jay And Silent Bob Strike Back, but it recently underwent a rather major overhaul. Now it's an all-encompassing pop-culture news and opinions site, focusing mostly on movies, but also touching on TV, video, music, comics and toys. The contributors who write the many weekly columns are knowledgeable and entertaining, and the site feels sort of like Ain't It Cool News
minus the atrocious design and grade-school level writing. Add to that some of the funniest headlines
I've seen in a while and The Porn Star Quote Of The Week and you've got a new daily visit for this geek.

"ooh, what a lovely tea party"...
I know this link will attract a ton of "Kevin Smith is an overrated hack" posts, but I was surprised it wasn't here already. The second Internet Only trailer for "Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back" is up, and the server load has calmed down to the point where it can actually be downloaded.
As could be expected, this will make Smith fans cheer and bounce up and down in their chairs, and Smith hatas shake their heads and look for the nearest web forum to post comments about their disgust.
Amusingly, the latter part of that paragraph is apparently a major plot point of the movie, and if you read today's "talk-backs" on AICN
you'll appreciate how much fun Smith is having with it. Can't wait to see the flick, and to add to the fun it comes out on my birthday. Nootch.

Just saw Dogma
and I know the rest of the world saw it before me. I waited. All my friends said, "you got to see this movie Zach cuz the way you've talked about religion all your life this is IT!" And I thought that was pretty sour, that Hollywood could ever get my idea of religion right, but Kevin Smith's not Hollywood and I saw it and it was good. It's close. It doesn't quite take it to eleven though. What I find more interesting is seeing Kevin Smith's take on other Hollywood projects
. I feel for Kevin. He's like Daniel in the Lion's Den..
