Clerks: The Animated Series 2013 Return Possible

So to any of you who know me, either online as some twisted Internet pseudo-personality, or more unfortunately for you in real life, it probably won't blow your mind that I like Clerks. Now, if you don't know what Clerks is, A) Shame on you and B), the debut film of director Kevin Smith, shot famously on incredibly little money and detailing the mundane life of convenience store "Clerks" in Smith's native New Jersey. While I think out of the three of us, I am the one of which Clerks has continued to endear most, the Kevin Smith story does not end there.

Clerks: Dante Hicks and Randall Graves

Perhaps more famously than these two, Kevin Smith's films also include a pair of drug dealers/lay abouts/malcontents called Jay and Silent Bob. They appear in pretty much every film in what shall be offhandedly referred to as the "View Askewniverse", and have seemingly become large pop-culture icons in their own rights, with some of my acquaintances having only known them as "those guys from Dogma", or more hilariously in my opinion, "the guys from "Because I got high by Afroman".

What About Cynics Podcast #7 - Star Trek Into Bullshit and The Xbox One Invents Television

Here we are again. Another rubbish week and even more rubbish and disappointing things to talk about. All in all though at least this week has had alot of stuff happen, maybe not important stuff, but stuff that can fill up an hour of our endless time here in the Universe. If you're extra lucky like me, you also get to waste some extra time editing the background picture in to the podcast.

So what's gone on this week. Well sticking with the theme of discussing stuff that only happens within the entertainment realm, we'll be discussing the terrible mess that is Star Trek Into Darkness. We get to chat about the upcoming My Little Pony: FIM direct to DVD movie, Equestria Girls. What an honour.

Also in a gaming heavy week this week, the few of us who have played Pokemon get to talk about the future and past glories of the franchise, while all of us get to joyously pull apart the recent catastrophe of the Xbox One reveal. Destruction in its many forms will always be the most fun way to pass the time, so come and pass some time with us.
