Thank you so much for all the askewniverse years. You've done
something nearly impossible; become commercially successful
without getting away from your artistic roots. It's sad to see the
Askewniverse coming to an end, but at least it's going out with a
Good luck on your future films, we'll all stick along for the ride.


: Mewes and I finished our on-camera work as Jay and Silent Bob
today (ironically enough, we wrapped the movie with one of the first
scenes in the flick). Jay did a stellar job and finished up strong (and
bare ass). Good stuff all around.

: Shooting in Leonardo again was a trip. Mosier and I realized that
exactly eight years ago (to the day, even), we were shooting 'Clerks'
there. Sad, isn't it? We haven't really made much progress (although

memory lane by his Brodie performance. As usual, Lee was
phenomenal. Wait 'til you see/hear Brodie's latest quirk ("And with
that, we cue the music...").

: One more day (a night, actually) of shooting, and then the whole
enchilada's wrapped as well. Fittingly, the scene features Dante and
Randal. We get to end the cinematic tales of the Askewniverse with
the two cats we started telling said tales with in the first place.
Something nice about that.
