its actually pretty sad, the endless ammount of mindless morons that ive read on here (only having read this board for two days now). all these poor suckers trying to hang out with kevin(or God as some of you would have it) none of these people realize that if they were to hang out with the poor bastard, the movies and the whole entity which he has created, it would most likely lose alot of its entertainment value, the things which you may find mild and not entertaining at all among your circle of friends, is easily construed as drop down hilarious to someone outside of your direct circle. being a part of such a circle, it would be a poor day in hell when youve met everybody that you would like to, and everybody that you find even mildly amusing, because eventually all free thought would leave you and you would be at a constant loss of entertainment, we should be so lucky to never meet the rest of the people that we would like to, it is almost always a disappointing venture, and in retrospect something you would have rather kept for amusement. now its up to all these poor saps to make an educated decision to allow theyre temptations to reach out to someone that theyre convinced is "just like them" to let it get to them, or to simply enjoy what you can, and be happy with what you have. curiosity killed the cat. all these fucking "fanboys" piss me tha fuck off. wouldnt it be sad if half of them actually got to meet the bastard and he actually didnt like them, ha ha ha. how ironic is that, it is a thin line between fan and stalker aint it...
Viva Los Cochino Bastardos!!!!
: Ok, I know that this technically counts as an off-topis post, but why are people so rude on this board? I could to some degree be considered a Newbie as I have sledom actually posted to this board, but I have been reading it for quite some time. It always amazes how people are so willing to jump all over each other correcting little msitakes and criticizing them when they praise Kevin Smith. I admit that sometimes I find it funny when people post trying to get Kevin to hang out with them, but to some degree isn't that the goal of a lot of people who post here? We are all big fans of Kevin's work, and more so, his loyalty and devotion to his fans. Everyone here would like the chance to talk to Kevin and just shoot the bull, see what Kevin thinks, what makes him tick and claim bragging rights for being able to say that they got to talk to Kevin. Just because we all recognize that this will not always happen is not a great reason to jump all over them and mock them.
: Oh, and I know that this post will recieve it's share of criticsm, and I wouldn't be surprised if Brian jumps all over me, hopefully I have kept this post relatively free of grammatical and spelling errors, but we are all human.
: And then there is the incessant pounding of newbies for all of their little mistakes. I understand that long time readers/posters of this board feel that everyday more and more people are just jumping on the bandwagon and posting silly messages about how they are such big fans, and that with each additional member the group grows and feels less close, less tightly knit as it once was, but if people did not appreciate Kevin's movies, and his fan base didn't grow, he wouldn't be making the bank. I guess I will stop this rant from a depressed, cynical, bitter young man who has not lived long enough to truly build up such distaste for people and their behaviors. This is just something that I am typing as I think about and I know that I will be flamed for it, but I wanted to get it off of my chest.
: I admit that the board would not be the same without all of the little zingers and pokes that long time members take at new posters asking Kevin to come hang out with them, read their scripts, invite them to premiers or cast them as an extra in his newest movie.
: Flame on.
