Recently Stephen and I were lamenting the fact that Kevin Smith’s next stop in Kansas City falls on the same day as the university’s graduation weekend. Now that the trailer for Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie has been released I’m thinking I’ll just fail the semester so I can make it the showing in May. NSFW trailer following the jump.

Even though reviews for the show were not stellar, and even though Bryan Johnson is currently in rehab, AMC has announced it is renewing Comic Book Men for a second season.
Last night, following The Walking Dead, Kevin Smith’s reality series, Comic Book Men premiered across the country.
AMC’s new unscripted one hour series, Comic Book Men, dives deep into fanboy culture by following the antics in and around master fanboy Kevin Smith’s New Jersey comic shop, Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash. The six part series documents the daily banter of the Stash staff and customers as they geek out over mind-blowing pop culture artifacts and the legends behind them. Comic Book Men features Secret Stash employees Walt, manager and de-facto leader; Mike, a comic book virtuoso; Ming, the store’s technical expert and go-to whipping boy; and Bryan, who doesn’t actually work at the Stash, yet can always be found perched on a stool behind the front counter. As the team buys, sells and discovers the treasures of the comic collecting world, they share all the juicy details with Kevin through their outrageous podcast, which is woven throughout the series. The Secret Stash is not only a place for these comic book men to buy and sell, but it’s also a refuge for many to hang out and be part of a community that loves comics.
According to Smith, there are six episodes that have been ordered, and there has been no announcement of a second season.

How many issues does it take to turn a man into a cyborg? If you are guessing two, you would be wrong.
This year, at the New York Film Festival, Kevin Smith will host a curated screening of Buckaroo Banzai: Across the Eighth Dimension. It sounds too good to be true, but considering the cult status Buckaroo Banzai has achieved, and knowing Smith’s love for pop culturey films, this seems like a natural choice.
W.D. Richter’s 1984 pic “Buckaroo Banzai” is shown as part of a series called “Kevin Smith’s SMoviola,” now to be a continuing series of Smith-selected pics with filmmakers and stars of the films in attendance. “Buckaroo” cast members Peter Weller and John Lithgow are set for the Oct. 15 screening.
I am sad that I will not be in NYC on October 15.
“Steve Austin, astronaut. A man barely alive.”
“Gentlemen, we can rebuild him. We have the technology. We have the capability to build the world’s first bionic man. Steve Austin will be that man. Better than he was before. Better… stronger… faster.”
The opening words to the Six Million Dollar Man is engrained in the mind of kids born before 1971. But what happened before the Northrop M2-F2 crashed and burned?
