That one time when I made Kevin Smith’s day.
I registered Metzae.net a decade ago right after adopting the screen name Metzae. Since then, it has grown into a large network of dozens of websites. The original site is completely unique, and I have filled it with things to discover. Some of them are obvious and some are intentionally hard to find. Though the website doesn’t follow the schemes of most other websites (especially since the evolution of social networks), it does have a specific purpose. It is digital art, a virtual exhibit, and social experiment all in one. If you decide to look through it, there’s only one thing I can tell you: look closer.
I grew up watching Sean, so it was a privilege to see him working in person. Not only is he as nice as I expected, he’s a great interviewer. He is friendly, personable, and intelligent. Unlocked is fortunate to have him onboard. Thanks for a great couple days, Sean.
We recently did a shoot for Mouser Electronics that took place on the set of StarTrekContinues, and it was an incredibly entertaining experience. Vic Mignogna and his crew have created something amazing. They have tried (and succeeded) to create a near-perfect replica of the original Star Trek series. They’ve led a successful Kickstarter campaign that has ensured that fans get to see more episodes. It was great to meet some of the crew, and I appreciate Vic taking the time to show us around.
We interviewed Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes at his house for the upcoming series, Unlocked.
I feel it’s appropriate (and important) to make a note of something that happened that day. While we were in the middle of the shoot, Kevin excused himself for a few minutes after saying, “I’m dealing with a dying dog.” I thought he was joking until I saw his post this morning. It turns out that his beloved pet of 17 years was literally a day away from dying.
From what I can tell, this picture was taken while he took his break from our interview. Like I said in the comments on the picture, he returned as though nothing was wrong and was just as funny and friendly as you imagine he would be. I feel his pain and his loss, and now I respect him more than I ever imagined I would.
