“If someone was going to exploit the library for sequels, remakes, TV, I’d rather it be the devil I know. Nice to know there’s a home for Clerks III if I ever wanted to make it, but hope it doesn’t become a home for a Clerks-anything if I’m not involved. Either way, I doubt my shit is even something they wanna re-do/remake. [Miramax owns] Clerks, Chasing Amy, Jersey Girl and Jay & Silent Bob Strike Back. But then it’s further complicated by the Jay & Silent Bob of it all. They don’t own Jay & Silent Bob; I do. They own Strike Back, but they can’t make any flick that’d include Jay & Silent Bob (even a Strike Back sequel) without my permission/license. The only flick they own free & clear of me with no ties whatsoever, is Jersey Girl. And from personal experience, there’s little to no interest in a sequel or remake, unless it opens with JLo’s dead Mom busting out of her earthen grave, trampling her only begotten daughter’s copy of a Necronomicon as she eats her brains. If they wanna do THAT Jersey Girl sequel, I’m totally in.”—Kevin Smith Responds to Miramax Sequel Plans | Film School Rejects (via popculturebrain)

also: i spent the year listening to more spoken word and slam poetry than any other. props to buddy wakefield, anis mojgani, derrick brown, rives, and so many more for keeping my heart beating, my palms sweating, and my faith in words resounding.
i got nothing to give you, you see, except: everything, everything; all the good and the bad. because i’ve been bad; i’ve lied, cheated, stolen and been ungrateful for what i had. and i’m afraid habits rule my waking life, i’m scared and i’m running in my sleep for you. but all the oceans and rivers and showers will wash it all away and make me clean for you.
