I look forward to this.  Clerks and Clerks 2 were very funny.  I don't understand all the hate.

He gave us the "ABC" dance on the rooftop. I will always give him the benefit of the doubt.

chapman: This man is on a mission to make sure that nobody respects him as an artist by the end of his career.  Though I'm not sure which would be worse, Clerks 3 or more episodes of that crap reality show.


I'm pretty sure people stopped "respecting him as an artist" after Jersey Girl.

If not that, then definitely by "Cop-Out"

/actually like most of the Askewniverse movies
//Clerks 2 could have been worse
///but the animated series was the best thing he ever did

It is a tad ironic that Kevin Smith's "Intervention Podcast" with a now smack-free Jason Mewes is conducted while he's high as a goddamn kite.

Smith footed the bill for MULTIPLE rehabs when Mewes was spiraling into a crack and heroin abyss and very well might have saved his life.

I was a big Kevin Smith fan until I read a couple of his books (well.....blog posts wrapped up and published as books), and they kind of made me sad. Smith seems like a really interesting guy, but he's got his friends, he's got his wife, he's got the life he wants, and that's it. He almost seems like he doesn't need to push himself or fight or do anything interesting. He's comfortable. He's got things to lose.

That being said, "Clerks II" was better than it had any right to be.

quinnchan: Old reddit news is old.


This isn't Reddit news. I got it first-hand from Kevin Smith's Facebook. Reddit is just a third-rate 4chan wannabe where all the kiddies go to feel like they aren't as big of a frakkup with frakked up viewpoints as they think they are.

Now, for the article, this didn't really surprise me at all. I just hope it's a good movie. I also hope he didn't wake up still high from the night before, look at his clock, and misconstrue it as some sort of epiphany that Dante and Randall turned into potheads.

Say what you will about Kevin Smith (I enjoyed Clerks and Mallrats.... the rest very MEH), I enjoy watching Comic Book Men and I don't read comic books.  I even download the Comic Book Men companion podcasts and listen to them at work to kill time.  Of course, my favorite podcast is still  http://www.thesecretcabal.com/ which is an excellent RPG and board gaming / miniature gaming podcast.  But I still listen to Comic Book Men and have a good time... and that's what it's all about, eh?

Now plucking away at their 40s, the lot will return for a third chapter, suggesting more poetic waxing and comic book conversations for the devoted fan base.

...do we really want to see this?  Really?

I actually like Comic Book Men. Reminds me of the store I used to shop at back in the 90s, with a little bit of geek Pawn Stars mixed in. The episode where Stan Lee did a book signing was especially a lot of fun.

/I buy everything digital now, so I kind of miss hanging out and talking about geeky stuff in the old store.

The Angry Hand of God: I look forward to this.  Clerks and Clerks 2 were very funny.  I don't understand all the hate.


You don't understand. Your senses and tastes aren't refined enough to understand.

It certainly isn't just a further propagation of the "I'm on the internet and I'm edgy and cool with excellent taste and that means nothing under the sun is as cool as it was back in the day". No sir, all of these haters have good reason to hate and they all hated whatever they hated before it was cool to hate it.


You're right to find them funny. Clerks was cheap and looked like crap and was just vulgar punch after vulgar punch, and this is why we love it. And it's also why at least some of us loved Clerks II.

And I think Clerks III is definitely going to clock in 'acceptably vulgar and funny' at the minimum, and who knows? It may very well end up being his best. Though I think you have to go pretty far to top 'Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back'..... which I think is by far his best to date.

One thing is guaranteed. Whatever Dante is doing and wherever he is in Clerks III... he isn't even supposed to be there that day.
