Yeah, it's true

OK, since it's Friday night and my inbox is flooding with more news of my wacky life, yes, Rachel and I are both in the new Clerks II movie. I am officially “ear guy” in the credits and she's I think “girl at counter with ear guy” or something. “Ear guy”… story of my life, summed up in two words, ha.

But seriously, the movie is really good and worth going to see — the whole theatre was laughing their heads off and all pointlessly clapped at the end — if you like outrageously vulgar humor (including, among other things, a relatively friendly depiction of man on donkey love) overlaid with a touching and sometimes serious romance tale. I have to admit it made me miss working at Stainless Studios, probably the only “real” (emphasis on the air quotes) job I've ever had, a lot. It's interesting how much more value a timeperiod can have to you in the present than it seemed to in the past.

We did an hour long interview with Kevin Smith that may or may not end up on the bonus DVD as well. The shoot was really fun and was everyone was very nice… and Ben Affleck is a GIANT in real life — it's seriously freaky. You know how a Bentley is like a normal luxury car, but scaled up 25% or something? Well, that's pretty much Ben Affleck — when he shakes your hand it's like that scene in Shallow Hal with Anthony Robbins. It's freaky, but kind of awe-inspiring at the same time.

Anyway, big thanks to Rachel for setting the whole thing up.

Wow Shannon, that's really annoying! What is it, 1997 on Geocities? Retroweb is NOT cool!
