That Kevin Smith? The guy who did Clerks a million years ago? Didn’t he bounce his fat ass off a plane once? What could you possibly learn from the director of Cop Out? How about this: He changed filmmaking forever when he was twenty-three, and since then he’s done whatever the hell he wants. He makes moviews, writes comics, owns a store, and now he’s built a podcasting empire with his friends and family, including a wife who’s way out of his league. So here’s some tough shit: Kevin Smith has cracked the code. Or, he’s just cracked.
Tough Shit is the dirty business that Kevin has been digesti g for forty-one years, and now he’s ready to put it in your hands. Smear this shit all over yourself because this is our blueprint (or brownprint) for success. Kev takes you through some big moments in his life to help you live your days in as Gretzky a fashion as you can –going where the puck is gonna be. Read all about how a zero like Smith managed to make ten movies with no discernible talent and how when he has everything he thought he’d ever want he decided to blow up his own career. Along the way, Kev shares stories about folks that inspired him (like George Carlin), folks who befuddled him (like Bruce Willis), and folks who let him jerk off onto their legs (like his beloved wife, Jen)
So make this your daily reader. Hell, read it on the toilet if you want. Just make sure you grab the bowl and push, because you’re about to take one Tough Sh*t.
