This is completely ridiculous

About a month ago, on NPR's "Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me", director/occasional actor Kevin Smith was on their "Not My Job" segment. During the segment, he discussed the podcast the he airs with his producer/friend Scott Mosier.

Since then, I've gotten caught up on every episode of SModcast. Jen would say that it's come at a price, since I've seemingly immersed myself in all things Kevin Smith.

For example:

Two weeks ago, I rented both "Clerks" and "Clerks 2". It'd been close to ten years since I'd seen "Clerks" and back then, it was one of my favorite movies. Nearly ten years of customer service later and the flick still holds up. I then dug right in to "Clerks 2" and thought it was even better. I could identify with "2" a little more, since I've been waiting on people for roughly half my life, and still find myself at the beck and call of people who sometime irritate me. However, unlike Dante and Randall, I love my job. I was almost sad to see "Clerks 2" end, and have had this on the brain since seeing it. (spoiler alert! If you haven't seen this movie, stop watching at the 2:40 mark)

Then, for my flight to and from L.A., I rented "Dogma" (one of my favorite films. Matt Damon telling Ben Afleck that he needs a nap still kills me), and "Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back". Sadly, the disc that came from the store was only disc 2 (exta material) so I didn't get to watch "JASBSB". Soon, soon.

Also, I'm reading Smith's "My Boring-Ass Life", a collection of his online diary that has been published in book form. Check it out here, or head to your local Waldenbooks or Borders to have a peek.

Jen, posting about this may have purged my system a little, but I can't make any promises.
