You love him, you hate him, you can’t stop talking about him; Kevin Smith has a way with words and a place in our world. He may be giving up filmmaking shortly, but there’s no shortage of speech emanating from his mouth and keyboard. His new book came out yesterday, and I have one to give to one of you starting today.
That Kevin Smith? The guy who did Clerks a million years ago? Didn’t they bounce his fat ass off a plane once? What could you possibly learn from the director of Cop Out? How about this: He changed filmmaking forever when he was twenty-three, and since then, he’s done whatever the hell he wants. He makes movies, writes comics, owns a comic book store, and has built a podcasting empire.
Tough Sh*t is the dirty business that Kevin has been digesting for forty-two years and now he’s ready to put it in your hands. Kevin provides you with a blueprint for success, taking you through some big moments in his life to help you live your days in as Gretzky a fashion as you can: going where the puck is gonna be. Read all about how a zero like Smith managed to make ten movies with no discernible talent and how when he had everything he thought he’d ever want, he decided to blow up his own career.
Want to win it? Here’s what you do. Smith has announced that his last film will be Clerks 3. In comments below, write a fictional line – or exchange – of dialogue you’d expect to hear in it. (Anyone submitting “I’m not even supposed to be here today” will be disqualified. New dialogue.)
