Following the enormous success of his New York Times bestseller My Boring-Ass Life, legendary independent filmmaker, writer, actor and cultural commentator Kevin Smith returns to share more words of wit and wisdom in Shootin’ The Sh*t With Kevin Smith: The Best of Smodcast [Titan Books, 22 Sep / 2 Oct 2009, $14.95 / £9.99].
Collecting some of the finest moments of Smith’s freewheeling conversations with his friend and producer Scott Mosier (as heard on their top-rated podcast, known as SModcast), this brand new book exposes more of the inner workings of Smith’s wonderfully weird mind.
Discover the genesis of Stalin’s Monkey Soldier army, the horrifying tale of Kevin vs. Steak Tartare, how to make bukkake eggs, the lengths to which Jason Mewes would go for a free comic, and how Kevin was once willing to let Alanis Morissette get mugged…
Lewd, crude and hilariously rude, these are just a few examples of the riches to be found within! Also featuring guest conversationalists Walt Flanagan and Bryan Johnson, fellow filmmaker and failed Canadian Malcolm Ingram, and even contributions from his wife Jen and daughter Harley, these are the humorous highs and cultural lows of Kevin Smith’s verbal diarrhoea…and he can’t wait to unload on you.
Kevin Smith sold his comic book collection to fund Clerks, and after the film became a huge hit he was able to buy them back. Smith was the producer of the Oscar-winning Good Will Hunting and has also written and directed Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Jersey Girl, Clerks II and Zack and Miri Make A Porno. He is also a comic book writer, actor and author. His previous book for Titan, My Boring-Ass Life: The Uncomfortably Candid Diary of Kevin Smith, was a New York Times bestseller. His next movie as director is A Couple of Dicks starring Bruce Willis.
