In LA and want to meet Richard Kelly and Kevin Smith? Then head to The Stash!!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I'd love to be able to attend this event. Anyone who has listened to Richard Kelly and Kevin Smith talk together knows how funny they are together. I saw them speak together at Comic-Con last year and Kelly was very nervous and Kevin was... well, Kevin. Nothing phases that dude.

I'm also really looking forward to reading this SOUTHLAND TALES prequel graphic novel, so considering Smith (who plays a character in SOUTHLAND) and Kelly are going to be signing copies this event is right up my alley. Unfortunately my alley is halfway across the world at the moment... I'll just have to pick up my copy at Comic-Con when I get back...

So, on Thursday, July 6th, from 6:30-8:30PM Richard Kelly and Kevin Smith will be at Jay & Silent Bob's Secret Stash (1045 Westwood Blvd., Los Angeles CA 90024) signing copies of this:

SOUTHLAND TALES: TWO ROADS DIVERGE is the first of 3 graphic novels that compose the lead-in to Kelly's flick. So, fans... now you know and knowing is... well, knowing. Enjoy you lucky LA SOBs!

    Man, they have a stash in LA now?

    by PushTheButton

    Weird. Red Bank for life, or something of the sorts. Monmouth Street at that...

  • June 29, 2006, 9:30 p.m. CST

    Stash has been in LA for over 2 years now...

    by Doom II

    And Donnie Darko was "ok". Not the cult masterpiece many claim it to be.

    by jack_noisewater

    The Kevin Smith/Richard Kelly commentary for Darko is one of the best i've ever heard. Insightful and funny.

    Who and Who?

    by GuyLombardo

    Would Kevin have anything to do if it weren't for Comic Con?

    Snap, snap, get to it already. You know you wanna.

  • June 29, 2006, 10:30 p.m. CST

    Hmm, I wonder if he did that little favor...

    by Shermdawg

    I asked for in the talkback where he answered our posts. I asked him to put "SHERMDAWG IS THE FUCKING MAN!!!" in the closing credits of Clerks 2. I guess I'll find out in a few weeks. *crosses fingers* ;)

    Any females out there would like to have some drinks... A/S/L

    Knight, your a dork...

    by Drworm2002

    Shermdawg that would be cool. If I was making movies and fan asked that I might sneek it in...just for laughs. I never heard the Darko smith/Kelly commentary, Did KS have anything to do with that movie?

    Well dr. Worm, I guess it's wrong for me to ask for a woman's age, sex, and location on a movie forum? I'm looking for some fellatio ^_^... Aren't we all?

    Where da preview pages at?

    by Neo Zeed

    When you advertise a comic you've got to show preview pages!

    Can we punch him in the face

    by godoffireinhell

    for DOMINO?

  • June 30, 2006, 3:02 a.m. CST

    You should punch this people

    by CuervoJones

    Tony Ciccone, William Goldenberg and Christian Wagner, the film editors of Domino.

  • June 30, 2006, 3:15 a.m. CST

    this is already degenerating into the usual

    by Trader Groucho 2

    hateful shiyzuh (forget about me spelling anything in German correctly). The question I have is, does Southland Tales stand on its own, or does the informed filmgoer seriously need to crack the (graphic) books to get it???

  • June 30, 2006, 3:54 a.m. CST

    "Nothing phases that dude"? Did you mean "fazes"?

    by Doc_McCoy

    One of the most annoying grammatical errors. Read a book or two, you'll get it eventually. I'm unfortunately hearing bad thing sbout SOUTHLAND TALES, from fanboys no less.

  • June 30, 2006, 5:25 a.m. CST

    shiyzuh = scheisse

    by godoffireinhell

    jeez dude. shiyzuh sounds like arabic not german.

  • June 30, 2006, 7:59 a.m. CST

    No I'm not, but yes I would.

    by brycemonkey

    I'd at least get excited to meet these guys (as opposed to most film maker hacks). I don't blame Kelly for Domino so much, more the Scott and the Editors... ADD MoFos...

  • June 30, 2006, 8:01 a.m. CST

    Oh, and NIGHT...

    by brycemonkey

    There has to be better websites than this to try and get sex. Unless fat fanboys are your bag...

  • June 30, 2006, 8:07 a.m. CST

    Stop baggin'on Domino already.

    by LivesWithinLaws

    It was marketed from the beginning as "A Tony Scott Film", so you knew what you were paying for before the lights when down. You only have your poor judgment to blame.

  • June 30, 2006, 8:26 a.m. CST

    Isn't Kevin Smith the pseudonym directors use...

    by Thumper2k1

    when their the work is so shitty, they don't want to use the real name? That's why in movies like Dogma, Malrats, and Jersey Girl it says it's a Kevin Smith film.

  • June 30, 2006, 9:39 a.m. CST



    Thanks for the advice Bryce.... I wonder who will have more nerd fans show up or if they're betting on it.... I'm going with Smith..

    Meeting the idiot behind the most overrated POS

    by BitterMan23

    in recent history (excepting maybe CRASH) - lucky? the only interesting thing about going into that store is seeing the director of a movie (vulgar) working a cash register directly across from a shelf selling his film, and despite smith's hatred of it, a ton of family guy merch. its not even a good comic shop.

  • June 30, 2006, 9:48 a.m. CST

    ^ i meant DD btw

    by BitterMan23

    smiths films arent masterpieces but theyre at least watchable.

  • June 30, 2006, 10:03 a.m. CST

    After Mallrats...

    by Shermdawg

    is Smith dumb enough to shake a fan's hand?

  • June 30, 2006, 12:10 p.m. CST

    Yeah agreed NIGHT...

    by brycemonkey

    KS has deranged fans that would probably eat a turd if he told them to. Me, I just like him. 'Rabid' Kelly fans are probably too emo to leave the house... I'm in a fine mood today!

  • June 30, 2006, 12:42 p.m. CST

    God, you guys just never stop...

    by Roguewriter

    Made my way to the Red Bank, NJ, Stash for the first time last month, and it was absolutely the coolest shop I've stepped into since the heady fanboy comic book shops of my youth. Walt Flanagan was a delight, the place was chock-full o' fanboy goodness, and generally speaking, it was the most goddamned fun I've had in a commercial enterprise in about 15 years. Even WITHOUT coming out dead-broke. Kelly's DARKO ain't exactly my cup of tea (my wife loved it) and yeah, I'll agree that Kevin's work is never gonna get shelved next to CITIZEN KANE... but jesus, people, enough already! These are good guys. Fans themselves. Ones who've turned their fanboy loves into successful careers. You frackin haters really need to chill out. Expend some of that energy on positive emotions; you'll live longer.

    by AlgertMopper

    Actually, No. I don't ever want to meet Kevin Smith. Infat he should have to pay people for wasting their time with his bullshit.

  • June 30, 2006, 2:37 p.m. CST

    KNIGHT and Thumper

    by mattw

    Both your posts made me laugh out loud.

    Head on down to Kevin Smith's buy-my-stuff-O-rama! I think I'll wait till Comic-con to get my yearly KS fix...

  • June 30, 2006, 6:57 p.m. CST

    Jesus could there be two scukier filmmakers?

    by chickychow

    These guys are gonna be autograohing each other's bungholes. THink they give a flying cunt-fart about you? Why would they make the movies they make? Kelly especially. He's made some of the worst movies I have ever seen. and i've seen a bunch. I watched Air Bud again last night, FYI. and FYI, it fuckin kicked my ass.

    Thumper2K1:It's Alan Smithee!!

    by AshesOfDonnie

    Ill go but I hate Westwood. worst place in the world. I used to like it when K Smith did his appearances at Dave's Video in Studio City. that place was the shit( too bad it's gone forever).

    The Stash in LA?

    by JackBristow

    Man, there's only only Stash, and it's on Main St. in Red Bank (even though it used to be on Monmouth Rd). Shouldn't we be called this Stash in LA the Stash Redux or something?

  • July 2, 2006, 1:34 a.m. CST



    Excuse my lateness... Wow, didn't know Kevin had it like that. I've only seen Clerks having not heard about it. *yea, what rock was I under* and I really enjoyed it. I'm there for Clerks II!

  • July 2, 2006, 1:35 a.m. CST



    Lol when you don't have nothing to do Mattw, you come online and time some really stupd stupid shit

  • July 2, 2006, 4:32 a.m. CST

    $5 says...

    by Heckles

    Smith will wait at least a 15 minutes before talking about Ben Affleck.

    I think I'd rather get a disease
