A cool behind-the-scenes photo of Alanis Morissette, as God, holding up the Askewniverse Bible at the end of Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (2001). The photo was included as part of an auction for the sale of the Askewniverse Bible.
More behind-the-scenes photos from the last major act in Dogma: the epic church battle sequence and subsequent appearance of God featuring: Alan Rickman (Metatron), Alanis Morissette (God), Chris Rock (Rufus), Salma Hayek (Serendipity), Linda Fiorentino (Bethany Sloane), Ben Affleck (Bartleby), Matt Damon (Loki), Jay (Jason Mewes), Silent Bob (Kevin), and lots of other familiar Viewaskew faces and tons of extras.
After watching Clerks II again tonight, I felt that I could follow up my original memoir of the movie, not where my life felt perfect but it was just one of those moments that as Charlie Sheen would say was “Winning!”
Being the Jersey kids me and my friends were, we decided to road trip one summer day to Kevin Smith’s Comic Shop and the original Quick Stop.
The moment that stands out for me is when we were walking around the Quick Stop my friend jabs me in the back with his fist and makes a motion to something behind him.
I look back and I see a middle-aged woman on her knees in front of the milk refrigerator…looking through all the milks trying to find the one with the longest time until expiration date. For those that don’t know, this was a joke made in both Clerks I and II, and for it to be happening at the actual Quick Stop was enough to make the trip more than worth it. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to get a photograph of the “milk maid” as they are called in the movies, but I will never forget that image in my head.
There were lots of behind-the-scenes photos and candid taken during the epic church scenes at the end of Dogma. It is a climactic scene that features mayhem, chaos, angels, humans, and the appearance of God in all Her glory. Got to love that plenary indulgence loophole!
A signed photo by the lovely Lee Meriwether, the LEGO Ecto-1, and a con-exclusive Cock-Knocker figure from Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back (numbered 37 out of 400!) Just wait until you see all the art I bought!
