It’s tough to figure out exactly what is going down at here, but it would appear there is a new animated movie about Jay & Silent Bob, the stoner characters played by Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes, and Smith is coming to town and introducing it. Anybody who has seen Clerks or Chasing Amy knows Smith is capable of brilliance, but the abysmal Comic Book Men TV show proves that he’s capable of the occasional lapse in judgment too (and let’s not even talk about Jersey Girl). At his best, Smith can write dialogue that rivals Tarantino, and he can talk about pop culture all night. Let’s hope he hits his stride in Royal Oak.
New York-based DJ-production duo Designer Drugs apparently clocked up more than 300,000 air miles in the past year, highlighting the fact that these two men are as busy as almighty fuck right now. The album Hardcore/Softcore is set to drop, and the guys (Patrick and Theodore Paul Nelson) have been remixing everyone from Mariah Carey to Thieves Like Us. They’re nothing if not in-demand, and one listen to “Dead Meat” will tell you exactly why. They offer uncompromising, heavy and kinda nasty club tunes that have an industrial edge and a touch of punk too. Got to love that combo.
