Last night, @harleyquinnsmith and I presented the premiere of @deadlyclasssyfy, the wicked new series by @therussobrothers! Based on the @imagecomics, the show follows the students of Kings Dominion - a sort of Xavier School for the Gifted but for killers in training instead of heroes. It’s an insanely stylish 80’s-set adventure you can see on #syfy TOMORROW NIGHT, January 16th! I got to meet the incredible cast (including the mohawked Billy, played by avid #fatmanbeyond listener @realliamjames), talk to creators @rickremender and @milesorion1, and roll up on #anthonyrusso - who I’m sure I scared the shit out of after nearly crushing with a grateful hug while gushing about the 53 times I’ve watched @avengers #infinitywar! I got to tell one of my favorite filmmakers on the planet how important the work he does with his brother #joerusso is to me. I told him that Winter Soldier, Civil War and Infinity War not only vastly entertain me and make me happy, they also make me feel like a kid again. I’m 48 and after doing it myself for 25 years I know how movies are made: It’s my vocation. And yet, any time I watch a #russobrothers joint, I’m no longer a professional - I’m just a movie fan again, transported back to the 80’s, when the flicks that shaped my life and worldview loomed large and were all that mattered to me. Now I’m a grown-ass man, long past the time I’m supposed to put away childish things. I’m not supposed to care this deeply about movies and tv shows because I should be thinking about mature, closer-to-the-end-than-the-beginning kinda shit. But when the Russo Brothers make their magic, I drop adulthood for a few hours and get to return to a time of pop culture wonder and cinematic discovery. So the hugs (plural) I trapped the younger Russo in came from an honest place: I am sincerely grateful when a storyteller can make me feel like a kid again. And last night, surrounded by the next generation of talent, I felt maybe 15 years old, 16 tops. #KevinSmith #deadlyclass #syfy

Me, myself & I. #2009vs2019 - thanks to @ww, going Vegan and Runyon hikes. #KevinSmith #wwambassador #ww (Photo on right by @allanamato!)

I was “directing” @thegoldbergsabc all last week, so today I’m back to my Runyon hikes. Practically needed 3 barrels on me to drag me up there, so I chose this genius Jaws and It’s a Small World @teepublic mashup (shirt 12 of 30) drawn by @thesteele, entitled “It’s a Small Boat.” The same artist was responsible for my other Jaws shirt (Beaches Closed) so it’s safe to say I’m a fan! Later today, thanks to the good folks at @ww, I’m doing a photo shoot for the second least likely magazine I ever imagined I’d be featured in. Can’t say what it is yet but it’s further proof that a little healthy change can go a long way! #KevinSmith #wwambassador #jaws #teepublic #thesteele #runyoncanyon

I touched Greatness! Thanks to the the fine folks at @upperdecksports & @upperdeckent, I met and interviewed my hockey hero, #WayneGretzky! I first fell for the @edmontonoilers icon back in 2008-ish, when #zackandmirimakeaporno didn’t light the box office on fire. I went through what was either a mid-life crisis or a semi nervous breakdown. Locked away in my office and questioning myself as an artist, I watched old hockey documentaries. And for reasons I don’t fully understand, I was profoundly impacted by the story of the life and times of the greatest scoring genius the world has ever known. Even though I’m not an athlete and I’ve never dominated in anything, let alone in my industry, I nonetheless identified with the boy from Brantford, who always tried to give a little more and accommodate as many as he could. Gretzky’s life story became my gospel, and the advice his Dad Walter gave him became my creative mantra, leading to both @tuskthemovie and @yogahosers: “Don’t go where the puck’s been; go where it’s going to be.” Ten years back, I was looking for a savior - so I wrapped myself in #oilers colors and made #99 my higher power. On Wednesday night, I sat on a stage and talked to #waynegretzky only to discover that up close, The Great One smells like victory and Canadian Christmas. Before he skated off into the night, he signed the pictured piece of artwork that hangs in my bathroom - and if it creeped him out, he didn’t show it. #KevinSmith #upperdeckhockey #upperdeckcards #upperdeckent #thegreatone

Spent the week with Philly’s funniest family, getting undeserved credit for “directing” my third episode of @thegoldbergsabc! I was about to direct an ep back in February of last year but I had a heart attack instead. With one day left to shoot, so far, no cardiac problems - except my heart skips beats from laughing so much at the relentless comedic genius of @wendi_mclendon_covey, the funny force of nature that is @jeffgarlin, the Barry brilliance of @troygentile08, the sassy secret weapon @hayleyorrantia and the sweet silliness of @seangiambrone! Throw in a soupçon of jolly #GeorgeSegal and you have a family I love spending time with almost as much as my own! #KevinSmith #thegoldbergs #wendimclendoncovey #jeffgarlin #troygentile #hayleyorrantia #seangiambrone

Day 1 of JAY & SILENT BOB REBOOT! (Actually, this bit of brilliance was posted on @reddit yesterday by redditor Icemann0. We don’t start shooting @jayandsilentbob Reboot for real until the end of February. I only pray that this photo and caption are not funnier than our movie...) #KevinSmith #jayandsilentbob #jayandsilentbobreboot

Come join us as we honor the life and legacy of our beloved friend and Father of Fandom, @therealstanlee! EXCELSIOR happens JANUARY 30th at the @chinesetheatres, brought to you by the folks at @legionmofficial, #SModCo, #powentertainment, @agentsofmayhem as a benefit for @heroinitiative! Limited tickets are available at the #legionm website. #KevinSmith #stanlee #tclchinesetheatre #chinesetheatre

We finally sprung my Mom from the hospital yesterday! For the first time since Thanksgiving, and after three different hospitals, two different post-surgical rehab units, and one emergency helicopter ride, it was homecoming time! Mom’s recovery from the hernia surgery (where they had to pull her stomach down out of her chest) has been a bitch, to say the least. She lost 34 pounds during her month-long ordeal, so her 73 year old body has taken a beating. But last night, over vegan tidbits for me and French Toast ice cream for her, Mom and I celebrated the fact that - though it certainly tried - 2018 could not kill Amazing Grace or her baby boy! The two of us just stubbornly refused to answer when our numbers were called last year. I got many things from my Mom (my heart, my giving nature, my childbearing hips) - but perhaps the greatest gift Grace passed on to me was her utter invulnerability! #KevinSmith #gracevsmith #mom #wwambassador #teepublic

Jay & Silent Bob Hike Back! Brought my hetero life-mate @jaymewes to Runyon and to hide our nakedness, we pulled on a pair of @jayandsilentbob t-shirts from @teepublic (shirts 10 and 11)! We’re getting our middle-aged bodies ready for all the #jayandsilentbobreboot antics that start in a month and change! I’m sure it’s gonna be weird for some folks to watch two old men pretend to be overgrown children - but to be honest, it’s even weirder to *live* as two old men pretending to be overgrown children. Rebootch to the Nooch! #KevinSmith #jasonmewes #jayandsilentbob #wwambassador #teepublic #runyoncanyon #jaymewes #jayandsilentbobreboot

Posted this on @twitter Jan 1 but including it here for posterity. Spent the first day of 2019 having a @jayandsilentbob Reboot pre-pre-production meeting at our holiday-roomy @wework office! @jaymewes took this pic of me and @jordanmonsanto to both mark the moment and to document that we were the only dopes in Hollywood working on the holiday. Topics covered: living accommodations, cameo list, animation, and when to notify fans about opportunities to be extras in the flick (watch this space for details in early Feb)! 2019 is the Year of the Reboot! #KevinSmith #jayandsilentbob #jayandsilentbobreboot #wework #jordanmonsanto #preproduction #movie #moviemaking

For Runyon Shirt 9 of 30, I went with a @teepublic Snoopy shirt by @albertoarni! Based on the #normanrockwell classic, this sweet iteration entitled “Triple Beagle Portrait” shows our charismatic canine trying to capture his image on canvas. Long before #batman, @starwars, or anything else, my first foray into fandom was focused on Snoopy! I was a #snoopy worshipper, learning everything I could about not just the world of the #peanuts gang but also the titanic talent behind them, #charlesschulz. I also love this shirt because the image of Snoopy in the mirror (based on his first appearance in the comic strip “L’il Folks”, before it became “Peanuts”) looks like Shecky (not pictured but at my feet) when she puts her ears up. #KevinSmith #wwambassador #teepublic #runyoncanyon #tshirt #albertoarni

For my first Runyon Hike of 2019, I chose this @ledzeppelin & #Batman mashup from @teepublic. Drawn by @hillarywhiterabbit, shirt 8 of 30 puts the Caped Crusader’s cowl on Zeppelin’s Icarus and tops it with some of the most well-known lyrics in TV history. Speaking of Batman, me and @marcbernardin return to the @scumandvillainycantina for #fatmanbeyond on 1/12 and 1/22! Same (not as) Fat time, same (not as) Fat channel! (Ticket link in my bio!) #KevinSmith #wwambassador #teepublic #runyoncanyon #tshirt

HAPPY NEW YEAR! May this be the year you accomplish all the things you dream of doing (unless you dream of hurting people)! 2018 was the year that almost killed me, but 2019 will be the year of the REBOOT! So for my last @runyoncanyon hike of 2018, I chose this awesome @rickandmorty & @jayandsilentbob mashup shirt from @teepublic! Maybe it’s gross to wear clothes with me or my characters on them - but if I don’t do it, I certainly can’t expect anyone else to advertise my shit across their chest. Remember: as the year begins anew, so too can you! In 2019, endeavor to be the you that you always wanted to be! #KevinSmith #wwambassador #teepublic #rickandmorty #tshirt #runyoncanyon #2019 #jayandsilentbobreboot

Runyon @teepublic Shirts 6 and 7 from Saturday and Sunday hikes with my dog Shecky (not pictured). First up is a Faber College Mongols tee from ANIMAL HOUSE. My portrayal of Silent Bob has always stolen liberally from Belushi’s Bluto. Watch @jayandsilentbob Strike Back: in the parking lot sequence right before the animal testing facility break-in, I’m clearly trying to sneak into Dean Wormer’s office. The second shirt is “Honor” by @karenhallionart from her She series, featuring my favorite @disney heroine, MULAN. Eddie Murphy’s Mushu nearly steals the show, but it’s Mulan’s journey that gets me in the feels every time, culminating with her saving the Emperor and China and having her Father tell her “The greatest gift and honor is having *you* as a daughter.” Saw the flick with @jenschwalbach when we first started dating and a year later, we had our own daughter, @harleyquinnsmith. She hasn’t saved China (yet) but in becoming a Dad myself, I could relate to what Mulan’s Dad was talking about. The villain Shan Yu dubbed Mulan “the soldier from the mountain” - and wearing my Mulan shirt on Day 7 of Runyon hiking, that’s what I felt like: a Chinese girl in the mountains, with a lucky cricket in her pocket and a reverent love for her old man in her heart. And just like Mulan, I’m also tricking the world into thinking I’m a man. #KevinSmith #wwambassador #teepublic #tshirt #runyoncanyon

Runyon @teepublic Shirt 5 (from Friday’s hike) is an ode to the flick that made me fall in love with movies: JAWS! As much as @starwars featured heavily in my early films, Jaws also popped up a bunch. In #Clerks, there was the Salsa Shark joke, with Randal quoting Brody and Quint. In #Mallrats, Brodie and T.S. Quint thought the height of romance was proposing when Jaws popped out of the water at @unistudios. In ChasingAmy, I mirrored the scars scene aboard the Orca, right down to light fixtures that were in the actual Jaws film. This movie probably saved my life because it kept me from going into the ocean from age 5 until today - and mind you, I grew up in a beach town, mere meters from the sea itself. That’s powerful cinema, and this is a tremendous t-shirt. #KevinSmith #wwambassador #teepublic #tshirt #runyoncanyon

As 2018 comes to a close, I’m down over 50 pounds from what I weighed last year. I wanna thank @ww because they had a lot to do with it! #ww is #ForEveryBody who wants be around long enough to see their kid get old too. It’s #ForEveryBody who wants a healthier heart. Or it’s even #ForEveryBody who just wants to hike Runyon Canyon with their plucky little dog! Every body has a reason to get healthier. What’s yours? Tap the link in my bio to use #WW’s new filter on your own photos and share with the tag #ForEveryBody. I have to say this is technically an #ad - but even if I wasn’t an official #wwambassador I’d still be singing their praises. Not only did WW help me drop serious lbs after my heart attack, they’re helping me keep them off too! I’m living proof WW is #wellnessthatworks, so I love this company and I believe in their mission. In 2019, I’ll be visiting WW studios across the country and podcasting with WW members about their ups and downs, as we all learn to live healthier lives together! #KevinSmith #ww #wwambassador

One year ago today on his 95th birthday, I saw @therealstanlee in real life for the last time. Prior to that, I’d last seen Stan at his footprints ceremony at the @chinesetheatres, when I was the emcee at the @legionmofficial event. But on December 28th of 2017, Stan’s faithful body man Max invited me to a steak house in Beverly Hills for a surprise party on behalf of our beloved Mr. Lieber. I asked “Are you sure it’s a good idea to throw a *surprise* party for a 95 year old?” But it truly was: as you can see in the video, Stan made it through the surprise just fine. I remember nearly not going because I had a HOLLYWOOD BABBLE-ON with @ralphgarman that night (like we do Monday for New Year’s Eve; Tickets at the link in my bio). But then I said “The Man’s only gonna turn 95 once...” I’m SO glad I went, as this was the last time I’d ever see my friend and hero: two months later, I had a massive heart attack. And nine months after that, Stan would leave us for a better place where the master storytellers gather and reminisce about how their magic words changed the world. Happy Birthday, Stan! We all miss you because you hung the moon, man. #KevinSmith #stanlee #legend #icon #birthday #nonagenarian #marvel

Runyon Canyon - Los Angeles / Hollywood

For my @teepublic Runyon Shirt 4, I chose one featuring my heroine, @supergirlcw on a shirt by TomTrager that reads FIGHT LIKE A GIRL! Is it weird to wear an image of someone you actually know? I’ve had @jaymewes on my shirts for years, so sporting @melissabenoist is a welcome change. I even got a few thumbs-ups for the shirt from fellow @runyoncanyon hikers. Nice to live in an age where a grown-ass man can sport not only a superhero t-shirt but also a female superhero t-shirt... and nobody thinks it’s weird or says negative shit like they would’ve (and did) when I was a kid. For all that may be wrong with this wicked ol’ world in 2018, I find this little bit of progress heartening. #KevinSmith #teepublic #supergirl #tshirt #

After a 1 day break for Christmas indulgence, Shecky (not pictured) and I started the hikes anew! Today’s @teepublic Runyon Shirt is by the artist NineBlack and it celebrates comedy icon John Candy in his classic BLUES BROTHERS cameo. “Orange Whip? Orange Whip? Three Orange Whips!” is a movie quote every Gen X-er knows by heart. Growing up, John Belushi and John Candy were two of my heavy-set heavyweight comedy gods. I always wished I got to meet them - or better, record a podcast with them. But sadly, both titans were gone by the time the technology was invented. Anyway, this is Runyon Shirt 3 of 30. #KevinSmith #teepublic #johncandy #runyoncanyon #tshirt
