Summary

In freewheeling conversations with his friend and producer Scott Mosier (as heard on their top-rated podcast, known as SModcast), we discover to pick just three random examples of the riches therein the ins and outs (so to speak) of making his movieZack and Miri Make a Porno, how to make bukkake eggs, and how Kevin was once willing to let Alanis Morissette get mugged... Defiantly lewd, crude and hilariously rude,Shootin' the Sh*t with Kevin Smithis a must for all his fans! (Adults Only!)

Excerpts

From SModcast number 52
The Second Coming
Kevin Smith:What if Jesus came back? Would they believe him that he was Jesus? Would he have to do some miracles?
Scott Mosier:Yeah, if he had some powers.
KS:What kind of powers? Lasers-out-of-his-eyes Jesus?
SM:No-one wants magic.
KS:Yeah they don't want the Jesus that's like, “How many loaves of bread do you have? 'Cos now you have ninety!” I'm talking about the Jesus that's like, “I return as a lion, bitch, not a lamb.” And he's got the gas finger like the alien in Signs.
SM:I dunno, that might get some giggles. Then everybody would get a fuckin' baseball bat and a glass of water and Jesus would be dead.
KS:Like, “We saw that movie.”
SM:“Yeah, way to fuck up, Jesus.” And Jesus' return is over in twenty minutes 'cause somebody doused him with water and fucking beat him to death with a piece of wood.
KS:“Swing away Meryl!”
SM:“It's the Second Coming!... oh it's over.”
KS:“Everything's back to normal.”
SM:“Is there a Third Coming? Have we read about a Third Coming?”
KS:If there is, show them a better movie, where the aliens are unstoppable. Don't show them a movie where the aliens have a weakness.
SM:Even if he had the power where people are throwing bombs at him and shooting him and he'd be like “nah”.
KS:He'd be indestructible?
SM:Yeah, that could be peaceful Jesus: “You could do anything you want to me, but the power of love is so strong that you cannot touch me.” That would have to make people think.
KS:What, gay Jesus?
SM:Well it's not like before-Jesus was out there preaching about -
KS:That's my point, he's like, “Look, last time I was gay. This time I'm coming back like a hillbilly. I'm filled with hate. I got a dog, a truck and a shotgun slung under my dash. I'm mad as hell!”
SM:That would be effective too. “Is that a 4x4 pick-up?”
KS:“You're damn right it is! I gotta 350 big block under the hood, bitch!” No, if
Jesus came back, less love, more like, “Look, I tried love and you nailed me to wood. Now I'm gonna come back and I'm not gonna shield my glory, I'm not
gonna hide my light under a bushel. I am the Son of God...”
SM:“... and I will fuck you up.”

From SModcast number 61: “Bridge Beach!”
The Infamous Bridge Beach Story
[Kevin is joined by Walt Flanagan and Bryan Johnson]
KS:Have you ever been in a sexual situation where you were not the aggressor?
Where you felt victimised a little bit?
Walt Flanagan:No.
KS:There's never been any sex where you're like, “I don't want this.”
WF:No.
KS:Never once?
WF:Never once.
KS:You?
Bryan Johnson:Uh... not that I can recall. I mean, there are times where like...
KS:Where you hated yourself for doing it?
BJ:Yeah, sometimes.
KS:Where you had a little fight with yourself, where there's a little angel and devil on your shoulder?
BJ:The only reason I hated myself afterwards is if the person annoyed the shit out of me afterwards, you know? Um, never though, where it's been somebody that was gross, and I'm like, “Ugh, why would I do that?” 'Cause usually I would just, trumpet back to you, or...
KS:You're like, “I'm gonna make out from this story, one I'm gonna cum, two I'm
gonna tell people about it.”
WF:What about Bridge Beach?
BJ:Oh, yeah... I don't regret that.
KS:What was Bridge Beach?
WF:Oh, this is the hall of fame, of uh...
KS:I don't think I know this story.
