Well, as some of you may or may not know I mostly like to watch horror films and action films but I do like to watch comedies too. “Clerks” is one of my favorite comedies of all time. It’s definitely Kevin Smith’s best directed film.
As you can see, I have this BluRay of the first “Clerks” movie autographed by most of the main cast. I got “everybody” pretty much except for the director Kevin Smith who also played Silent Bob and the woman who played Caitlin Bree. I can’t get the woman who played Caitlin to sign it… whose name is Lisa Spoonauer ’cause she passed away in real life a few years ago I think… so really the only cast member I need to get signed on this BluRay is Kevin Smith himself.
How did I get this BluRay signed by most of the cast members? Well, Saratoga Comic Con of course. The stars were there signing over the years.
I got Jason Mewes, Marilyn and Scott Schiaffo to sign it a few years ago. I went to Saratoga Comic Con yesterday and the film’s two leading stars Brian O’ Halloran and Jeff Anderson were there signing so I got those two guys to sign it as you can see above.
I chatted with both Brian and Jeff for a little bit and they took their time to chat with me and they were both hella nice guys as expected. Both of those guys seem impressed that I got most of the cast to sign the “Clerks” BluRay and both of them said I need to get Kevin Smith to sign it somehow and I told them I’ll try my best ’cause as you know, Kevin Smith is the most famous of them all so he’ll be the hardest one to get. I was talking to Jeff Anderson about it who plays Randall and Jeff says to me and joked, “Well you gotta track him down”… which was funny. haha… and I told him, I’ll try my best. When I was talking to Brian, I was asking him about “Clerks III” and he says they already shot it… it’s all done and it’s coming out soon. I told him I’m looking forward to it and he says, “Thanks for being a fan”.
Getting Kevin’s autograph on it…. ooohhh, that’s gonna be a tough one, I don’t know how I’m gonna do that one but I’ll my best. Ya know, Kevin lives in the Hollywood Hills in Los Angeles ’cause you always see him posting hiking pics and videos in the Hollywood Hills. It’s gonna be hard to reach out to the man… I could probably mail the BluRay out to him “self addressed stamped envelope” with his permission of course ’cause I don’t want to get in trouble and stuff, ya know? Gotta do the autograph thing right so my best bet is I’ll have to wait until Kevin does an autograph signing around here. I heard that Saratoga Comic Con is gonna try to get him there so I’ll wait for that, maybe. I would like to meet Kevin Smith in person ’cause that would be cool. I’ve been watching Kevin Smith movies most of my life and grew up watching him. Of course, with the first “Clerks” being my favorite ’cause it’s a funny ass film and it’s one of those films you laugh hard at each time you watch. It’s a well-made film ’cause it’s realistic.
Meeting Brian and Jeff the two leading guys of “Clerks” was something and like I said above, they were very cool to talk to and they made it very easy to talk to them. Down to earth guys. They’ll talk with ya and shake your hand and everything. Guess they want their fans to have an experience. I told Brian and Jeff I re-watched the Clerks movie last Friday night and they seem flattered.
Going to Saratoga Comic Con was definitely a good day. Gonna go to these events more in the future, I think. Love the Clerks movies but the first will always be best. I may have seen the second one once but I’m planning on re-watching that one.
If you’ve never seen “Clerks” before you should definitely check it out. It’s a hilarious 90 minute film. It’s a real good one. Definitely Kevin’s best film in his career, in my opinion.
