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.
As some may know Kevin Smith is a few steps away from ending his filmmaking career for good.
Smith has been my hero since 7th or 8th grade when I saw Clerks. I use to watch a VHS tape of it over and over… All day long…
And now I’m 22 and making my first film. A short film but a film none the less.
The point of this is basically:
Kevin and his band of misfits were a very influential and inspiring part of a lot of peoples lives. Now that they are gone I would like to start something as underrated and beloved as that group. Not that I could… But I can try. I’m making this film with a bunch of old friends with similar interests and I’m going to try my hardest to make it damn good. I want Kev to see it one day and be like, “ Fuckin’ A”. I wanna make that man proud. As well as anyone else in my life that has inspired me.
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.
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!
So stoked to finally have this #Mallrats #soundtrack on #vinyl! I spun the hell out of this on CD in sophomore year of HS. #KevinSmith #weezer #suzanne #viewaskew #lp #recordcollection #recordcollecting
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!
