I'm cautiously excited about Clerks II (aka The Passion of the Clerks). The first one is such a classic, I'm so afraid that the second one is going to be too... Hollywoody. I mean, they've got Rosario Dawson (from Josie and the Pussycats and RENT)in there and her billing is only topped by Dante and Randal.
Part of the genius in the original Clerks came from the no-name actors. They got more commercial with Mallrats (and then Chasing Amy, and etc etc etc), and that was fine, but I'm so worried my original view of one of the best movies ever is going to be skewed by the hollywoodization of its sequel.
Randal and Dante are back, albeit a bit heftier. In the original original Clerks, Dante actually gets killed in the end, so I guess we're all just going to pretend that didn't happen.
Confession time. Some women fantasize about pretty men like Brad Pitt (ugh) or Colin Farrell (retch); I claim Jeff "Randal" Anderson as my daydream guy. He's so fricking cute! Even 10 years later. *girly sigh*
I'm going to cry if he ends up with Rosario this go 'round.
Jason Lee makes an appearance, as does Ben Affleck. They aren't credited in the cast, but check out the teaser and you'll catch them in a few frames.
Who is the blond chick with Dante? What happened to Veronica?
So many questions.

So yesterday I heard someone talking about doing laundry in a way that implied they were somewhat anal retentive. What was alarming was that her description was much LESS involved than the way I do my laundry pretty much every day.
Please tell me... is this not normal?
I separate whites and colors.
Whites are then separated into Whites Bleach and Whites No Bleach (certain fabrics, or t-shirts with printing).
Colors are separated into Darks, Mediums, Lights, and Brights.
If I have room for a whole load of them, I will also wash all Reds together, or do a whole load of nothing but Denim. Sometimes I have a load of just Khaki too.
Doesn't everyone do it this way?
