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.

Everyone's favorite foul-mouthed, philosophical shopclerks are back.
For those of you who missed it's premiere on the Tonight Show
a coupla days ago, the inimitable Kevin Smith has new short up on his site(Quicktime and RealMedia). Dante and Randal are back talking all about mad German Scientists, The Jetsons
and the decline of American ingenuity. Terrific, as always, Kev.

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..

Clerks: The Animated Series
is coming to ABC in May (here's a preview in quicktime format
). How far will ABC let slacking, smoking, cursing vandals go? Are they gunning for SouthPark? I can't imagine a watered-down version of Clerks being very funny at all, the whole point of Clerks the movie was the absurdity of the dialogue and jokes. Don't get me wrong, I used to be an über Kevin Smith fan, but I just can't imagine enjoying a kid-friendly version of the New Jersey universe.
