I am very jealous at the moment of my friend Will out in Kansas City who got to meet two cinema legends today (well, at least to nerdy guys of my generation), Brian O’Halloran and Jeff Anderson? Not ring a bell? How about Dante Hicks and Randal Graves? Or just Dante & Randal? The Quickstop? Still clueless? Just stop reading then.
If you’re still reading, you realize that who he met today were the stars of the classic Kevin Smith movie ‘Clerks‘. They stopped by KC to promote the upcoming sequel, ‘Clerks 2‘, which hits theatres on July 21st. Being a very smart (and pretty small) guy, he was able to work his way through the crowd and score some really good pictures.
This year I have only gone to the movie theater a couple of times, which is pretty astounding given the rate I used to go in years past. I like to think it is more a result of nothing being worth seeing (rather than just me getting old and not wanting to go out). But with the good buzz on this movie, and the fact that it is a sequel to one of my favorite movies of all time, you can bet that I will be in line that first night along with a bunch of other late 20’s, early 30’s guys. Anyone care to join me?
