For those of you that don’t know, Kevin Smith has a new book out. It is called My Boring-Ass Life: The Uncomfortably Candid Diary Of Kevin Smith. That name alone makes it worth buying, besides the fact that this man is a genius writer and funny as hell. I pre-ordered it back in July and it finally arrived today along with my copy of Now You Know, the writing and directorial debut of Jeff Anderson (Randall from Clerks), and a replacement copy of Silent Bob Speaks: The Collected Writings of Kevin Smith (which I have read most of but I lent it out, and you know how that goes). So far in just the introduction, My Boring Ass-Life has caused me to laugh numerous times. I can’t wait to ingest this book chapters at a time. I’ll probably write more about it after I’m done. But for now, you should go out and get it too so he can make more money and sit on his ass doing more boring stuff to write about.
And I mentioned this on my Pownce account, but I will reiterate here, Download SModcast. It is a weekly podcast he puts out with his producer Scott Mosier and occasionally a special guest. It is simply hilarious.
