Kevin Smith. Either you love the guy or you hate him. For years, the director has been polarizing audiences with his particular brand of humor and directing style but most would agree that his greatest movie was also his first big screen outing as a director: 1994’s Clerks. While the movie’s plot is a bit simple, i.e. a day in the life of a convenience store clerk who is working on his day off and his video store clerk best friend, the real meat of the film is in the hilarious dialogue and the various characters that stop by the store throughout the day. Clerks introduced the world to Kevin Smith and, almost as importantly, also introduced the world to Jay (played to perfection by Jason Mewes) and his hetero life-mate, Silent Bob (played by Kevin Smith). Well, if the director is to be believed, it appears at least one of those characters shall meet his demise very soon. (more…)
If you frequent nerdbastards.com then you may have seen my first installment of Silent Bob pieces ‘The Thinker’ (located at the bottom of the page). After posting the picture to the site we all decided to twitter out to Kevin Smith and he responded back with “Nice! Next in series: The Checker (me looking at da’poop, pre-flush).” So, i took it upon myself to go ahead and scribble one out.

We all know and love pop culture icon Kevin Smith and his alter film ego Silent Bob. To continue the tradition for Bob’s silent but insightful view on things I thought this modern take on the old french classic “the thinker” was only suiting. Enjoy BOB: THE THINKER.
