How about some multimedia for you today? We’d like to send some kudos out to author Amar, on the work he did on this hockey video for YouTube, taking recent comments from Kevin Smith and Joe Rogan during their podcast and turning it into a tightly edited 10 minutes of hockey enjoyment. He calls it “Two for Tripping: Blaze and Schtick”. Kudos, sir, and nice work.

- He records podcasts 6 hours a day in the studio located in his living room. Among the things he’s hoping the station to expand with are scripted radio plays, a audio sequel to CHASING AMY, his long-talked about RANGER … Read More »

When the early Askewniverse films were made, the idea of streaming them real-time to a computer screen was a foreign concept. Today, with a couple mere clicks, you can watch these classics, within seconds, completely uncut and commercial free. Sure, you’ll need a Netflix subscription, but it’s one of the best bargains out there. And Hulu, though ad-supported, is free for viewers in the US. Here’s some links to get you watching these flicks even easier:

Our longtime scooper and fan John Couture had the pleasure of introducing Kevin to the crowd in Indianapolis last week, and now has the pleasure of bringing a new scoop to us here at News Askew and via his own site, VideoETA. It seems that Jason Mewes will produce a new animated series, to be released online, featuring Bluntman and Chronic. As we recall Bluntman being mostly a silent partner, naturally, the key voice needed to make this happen IS Mewes, so it makes a lot of sense. … Read More »

This week’s new episode of Adult Swim’s Robot Chicken was entitled “Big Trouble in Little Clerks 2″. No references during the actual show, though.
Hmmm, anyone notice a familiar figure on this t-shirt? Kevin Smith gonna sue somebody?
Back even before the days News Askew existed, a little program called Squirt TV made it from host Jake Fogelnest’s bedroom and onto MTV. Back then, in 1996, Kevin and Joey Lauren Adams visited Jake’s room just before a little flick called “Chasing Amy” was about to be introduced to the … Read More »

A bit more light’s been shed on the fabled Askewniverse Garage Sale — At first we thought this might be a major clearance sale of Stash merchandise of old. That may still be involved, however, this new Propwerx Site titled “Kevin Smith Sells Out” shows us that this is quite a bit more significant. Major, and we’re talking MAJOR, icons from the Askewniverse are going to be up for sale, both in an in-person and online auction. Previous auctions from Propwerx have been held at the Palms … Read More »

Support these guys whose entry in the 2011 “Virgin Radio Fake Film Festival” in Vancouver is inspired by their favorite film – “Chasing Amy”. Not only did they do a pretty decent job of encapsulating some of the most memorable beats from the flick in just one minute, they seemed to travel all over to find locations and angles that really matched up with what Kevin and crew did back in 1997.
The guys have made it into the top 20 already, but to get into the top 10, they … Read More »

We loved this series of tweets from Kevin’s recent tweet-a-thon, which covers his reasoning for no longer entering his films into competition at festivals. Great stuff, which we’ve cobbled together for you here straight ahead:
I asked Harvey if we could compete with CHASING AMY back in ’97. I knew we had something special & I figured we could’ve walked with at LEAST an acting award. Said Harvey “Sundance is about emerging filmmakers. You’re already established. You gain nothing by competing, even if you win an award.” But … Read More »
