holy shit this is a half hour long? My time seems more precious than this, and I watched the entirety of Johnny Bravo Goes Bollywood.
The closer you get to Kevin Smith's center of gravity (located somewhere around a dead deer he ate off the road on the way there), the slower time is relative to your distance from better directors.
hey now, Kevin Smith may be a manchild, and he may be talentless and he may mindlessly worship pop-culture and...um. OK, I've got nothing.
He's a bunch of awful stereotypes combined into one.

video does not work
If it's because of adblock, I just leave the video alone and eventually hulu gives up and supplies the goods after nagging for a bit.

Seems unfair to call him "talentless" when he has hundreds of thousands of fans.
Edge edge has thousands of fans. Kurt Angle has thousands of fans... John Cena has millions.
Kim Kardashian has a career. Your argument is shit.
How much money did the Twilight series make?
Talent isn't a terribly nice thing to accuse someone of anyway.
Why, what a lovely painting! Clearly this ability is something you were born with and not in any way the result of years of hard work. I'm so jealous of your incredible luck of just suddenly being able to paint!
That's not a problem with the word "talent," that's a problem with what people think talent is. One can work all one's life to be a painter and still suck, whereas someone else with the same training can do work that commands millions of dollars.
It's like how people attribute medical successes to "miracles" rather than to "that group of people who spent years in medical schools and countless hours working their craft to be able to save a person I care about."
He's like a less talented Tarantino, but into geekier and even more baseless culture.
I'm having trouble coming up with a worse scenario then being trapped in a room with Kevin Smith with the possibility (but not certainty) that he will call on me to ask about some dumb movie.
I'd hit it if I had a second person to hold his tummy up while I... that's probably an overshare.

The description is apt.
I could not watch this pandering crap. It felt like one of those gameshows for kids.
It's shitty and shit.
And afterwards he invited them all over to fuck his wife.
I never understood the people who always defend him with "but he can sure tell a story!"
Clerks had a couple good jokes and came out at exactly the right time when pop culture deconstruction was hitting a popularity high but before the internet made it common place.
They could be referring to his "Evening With Kevin Smith" videos. He's got some decent yarns about writing a Superman script as well as when he did some work for Prince.

That's a pretty fat audience.

I like Kevin Smith.
I like his movies.
I like this.
Christ, how fat is this pop-culture barnacle?
I've been a fan of Kevin Smith's movies for years. I'm not so much a fan of his massive self love and desire to be relevant.
