Come back when ever you need me. I sit around smoke weed most mornings on so free. Okay let's do that. I wanna do it again. I do. I can ask you questions for days done and done. I really hope that the young people in our audience who may not know these movies from twenty twenty five years ago enjoyed kevin smith's creative path because that story mike is crazy how he made clerks and the idea that he was not thinking of consequences. And if those credit cards ended up not being able to be repaid because he had to work to slacker jobs and he would be in debt for his life. He was going to be living in his parents home in new jersey..

"Hello i'm dan levy hard and a million years ago when i first started learning about creativity and started craving it. I needed a certain permission to choose a different path. So i couldn't help. But marvel at the writing producing and directing of kevin smith who made the movies clerks mallrats chasing amy and dogma. The story behind his first movie clerks is absurd and brave and dumb and inspiring. It was black and white movie because he couldn't afford lighting. He had such an absurdly low budget for it that his broke slacker as had to put it on cobbled together credit cards. He'd never otherwise us and had no way to repay that. One movie subsidized the rest of his artistic career and it looked like a movie. Any of us could have made or been in for that matter later. He helped break out. Ben affleck and matt damon his greatest work in my mind dogma. Both spoofed and celebrated catholicism and it starred his comic hero george carlin the hate for it was so loud and so cruel that he would choose to never get near those particular flames again. If you're kevin smith fan you'll really love this conversation. If you're not a kevin smith fan. I think you might be after this conversation. Because he gave me permission to choose a different path a million years ago and gives it to me again today with the choices he makes and how he explains why it is that he makes them. He's got a new book out. It's colorful it's his story. It's kevin smith secret stash the definitive visual history. It's a different looking book. It's a big book and if you like him. You should get this book. But i want you to get to know him and his story a little bit better. And so let's begin with kevin smith here. Thank you for joining us. What would you say among your early work. The most fulfilling and fun projects you had. I suppose those could be two different questions. A true So filling was probably clerks. 'cause it just keeps paying dividends even today. We just wrapped clerks. Three and clerks. Three is about randall. The guy from the video store Deciding at age fifty after a massive heart attack that he has nothing to leave behind so he wants after years of watching movies. He wants to make a movie himself so they wind up making clerks essentially a black and white movie about working at the convenience store so clerks probably the most billing because it still to this day. Pays the bills in some ways. I don't think not a day has gone by since nineteen ninety three that i haven't said.

Fatman: the Mel Gibson Santa action comedy
"I have to tell you something about the serial comic concept made cinema fat man which you could see on Fandango now Voodoo or Amazon Prime. This stars Mel Gibson as a gritty, tough guy named Kris Kringle. Guess who he's. In fact, Santa Claus. And in this movie, he has to team up with the U. S military when a disgruntled kid hires an assassin to kill this Not so jolly Santa Mel because the kid received the lump of coal in his stocking. I'm not kidding. I mean, I guess this kid thinks hey may see you when you're sleeping, but he may not see you. You're aiming at him with a high powered rifle like Oh, my God. So is this. This is a dark film or what is it? It's darkly comic on Lee. Not in a good way like bad Santa in a way, like why they make this had it been funnier or scarier or more heartfelt, But I was like, Wow, okay. Man that is wild that's called fat Man. A fat man. And, you know, no reference to Kevin Smith from a few years back before he went on that diet.

"kevin smith" Discussed on Sci-Fi Talk: The First Season
"When is Alex Zahara and I've been in eight episodes of stargate played a Raven, God Zales to. Iron Shirt, the one own US regulators code rush. Omen Cap Nash and yeah the lots of crazy stuff outer limits. Everything else and you listen to this I talk. This is Tony Tomato and welcome the Saifi. And I've you're like me? You've been enjoying this season of comic book. Men on AMC second season and from your comics have some of the roundtable interviews, and you can only start with one person, and that's the opinionated and interesting Kevin Smith. And kick things off. I asked him about this second season and getting that second season on AMC, and here is quite an. It's still can't believe it. Know about these guys. It was a million to one shot that gets on TV ability to one shot that go to a second season, and they did so all credit. Goes to them I have a very job. Come in three times over the course of the season. Sit around the table and they just tell me what they shot so. All the heavy lifting, and then we look at like my percentage of the show we poke compared to. They got the rest of the time, so the fact that people tuned in once. I can drive a bunch of people to something on me. They'll keep going and our numbers are nice man. Nope, I number was really strong debt, but then they want up. So. It's them. They were compelling enough for people to tune in to watch and I can't even take credit for that. That's that's their personalities and for me. That's awesome because I've known these cats for years longer than others, and they've always been people I found really interesting, and and you know you find magic, wondering the smallest places where people don't really looking. I always found it in the bookstore and in my friends, and it was nice to be able to kind of pop camera on that. and. Have people kind of seeing the way I do? Nothing makes me feel better in this life. I promise you and that includes like my daughter. You know bringing home good grades, and after the airing of show watching somebody tweet something that Walter said and then Hashtag it great American. It's thrilling that we're going to season two, and then once again with them with AMC. You know it's like we're going to be anywhere. For me, that's the place big I watch everything on the network. That's broad us there. In the first place was the fact that I was like Mc Charlie, Corwin and original media is like AMC wants to do some. Geek Program to follow the walking dead. And I didn't really WANNA go back into TV ever again because I've worked on cartoon ABC like a decade back and it didn't really work very well, so I was like maybe I'm just not meant to do that, but then when he said I am. Actually, watching, breaking bad walking dead madman especially, so I sat down and talk to them and let us here. Let us to the point of like my friends being on TV and that wasn't even my idea. Man I was like just something that organically happened when I talked to Charlie about the idea of the show pitched as Pawn Stars in a comic bookstore. Like. People negotiating ate like you do on pawn. Stars or anti-growth I used to watch back in the day. Everyone's wanting to see conflict. Come through, and you'd be like this amazing one per every three hundred transactions and you'd always feel like. Wouldn't it be great if they just moth? If everything was conquered GIG transactions kind of like a box of crunch berries? That's all crunch berries. So one day when when Charlie's talking about is like, why don't you do them into this thing? Do like Pawn Stars. Accomplished Strip. He said. Where do you find the crew the conference? And I owned a complex store and I knew I was like we search America, we find. Acerbic Comic Bookstore crew somewhere in this world, because these cats are so area Divan smarter Scott's. They'll be. They'll make for great television so. Charlie one time. See the idea and AMC, so we want to see a pilot and I was like. How do you do pilot for a reality show? And he said he just put together a presentation what it would look like and so I said we have a Budgie said. Yeah, it's like this and it was very small, and I was like well. First thing to do is find are calmed bookstore. And he's like well. That waits until we get. A commitment, he's gone. We just need shoot something. Now's any conflicts to other well. I own account bookstore in Rabat swear to you this long for me to connect dots. This point I wasn't like pushing these guys. It was like my own account bookstore in red bank. And the guys who worked there do a podcast and they're really funny, so they could stand in whoever the real through winds up being like all right well. Let me hear their podcasts. I sent him to tell him Steve. And he here's these guys. Are The show the next day? Call me this is the show. And why would you go? Look in these are the guys and I was like? Yeah, well I mean they're funny, but really think so is introducing the MCP. And he did, and they want crazy. The boys and so suddenly we were often running and I can't even take credit for that. It wasn't even like my jeans. Put this together. It all happened accidentally backed into it, and by doing so if I tried if I sat there one morning and said let me get my friends on TV so that even when I'm back West at home in Los Angeles I can still feel a part of their lives and actually watch them. You know that'd be Kinda neat. It would never have happened in a million years. Never I don't have juice whatsoever anymore. To make that kind of magic, it happened organically and accidentally and stuff and wound up being like the greatest delight of last year for him. So seeing it come back for season two. We always said internally and I think we always felt insurance to. Because it's something you say, but maybe sometimes other people need differently, but we've felt like. Give us one sees. Million gift ever happens again like we were on. AMC wants it would be like being. Dragged back in time and put onto the lineup with nineteen eighty-four Edmonton oilers for like one very crucial game against the New, York islanders just for one shift, even you know, is that would-be magic enough because that to me is AMC. Is there the TV? Equivalent of the nineteen eighty-four into the oilers Miramax was in the mid nineties to make so the fact that we were on that network that was enough going to season. Two was never even like a plan was like. Let's just make six really cool episodes that we can all be happy about, and it's a free commercial for the show, so it's all gravy. When we got the call for season two man, we were just elated. Sometime. There was the sense of completion like we did it. We did it and then suddenly like you're going to do it again and I. Like like. Because achieving something and accomplishing great, I like doing this Little Hill I don't believe in like the big climb in my house we were raised to like. Take the bar lower to the ground and step over it. A lot easier, so the moment things get hard back away. Do some little little victories and this to me six episode on. AMC was a little victory in a bad way, and we're excited to be better, but at the same time it was like. Oh, now we have a second opportunity. Lose it all again, so it's just more pressure at the same time and so all this season while they were shooting, there's fingers crossed. There was back and forth in terms of like what the show would be as we shrunk into half hour format. And at the end of the day what we've come up with me, I, think is really cool. Basically feels like last season, but put like this oddly enough. It feels like it moves about the same as even though it's the same phenomenon guts good thing to say about a half hour show, but it feels like all the contents like I've watched six episodes holy edited now, and I don't go. Say No show anymore like it feels like quitting their version.

It's because we're not thinking carefully enough about what we hope to achieve as teachers the answer we give when we don't know what to say we want to give a whole episode of our podcast over to examining those really big concepts and what they mean for us as teachers. We're not going to be defeated by the Kovic. One thousand nine hundred DEMOC. I'm delighted to say that Dr Kevin Smith has joined us on the line from his home in the South Wales Valleys. Dr Calve. Welcome thank you good to be here. Welcome back to the cast yes. This is very strange of course might before we get into the deep conceptual stuff that we just talked about in the intro there. How are you coping in these very weird times? We're doing all right. We're doing really well. We've been keeping ourselves busy with the rediscovering our love of cooking and and all that good stuff so we that sounds good. Go on board. We've been spoiling ourselves with Mexican cooking because that was the biggest adjustment living in the UK was having to leave our favorite foods behind which were Mexican dishes. And so we've spent the past three or four weeks perfecting our OAXACAN SALSA and. I hear you students had been benefiting from these culinary delights. I'm lucky because I'm convening. A module called radical education and and I've been recording. Some little cooking with Kevin episodes with them in our collaborate sessions online. And we talk about the curriculum of salsa. So it's been a great different good experience. Well unfortunately this is not going to be an episode on the curriculum of Salsa. But I do want to get you back for another episode dedicated entirely to the curriculum of salsa place. But before we get onto curriculum matters. Could you just remind our listeners? A little bit about what you do. And maybe just flavor of your journey from SRN practitioner to education academic. Sure I'll I'll try and be brief I'm I'm a senior lecturer education in the school. Social Sciences at Cardiff University and My main area. Even though I've had a pretty diverse and interesting path getting care My main area of interest is creek and theorising and specifically I'm interested in kind of the cultural interactions intersections between curriculum and culture. But what really was a funny. Start where you could say. I wasn't always an educator and for the first thirteen years of my life I was in business until finally I just realized I wasn't I didn't feel like I was on the right path and so had a high school education so even though I had become fairly successful fairly successful in the marketing world. I just wasn't really happy and my wife says will clear the you know we need to figure out how to get you happy and and I felt like I had a calling to fulfill that was in teaching and so I went back to university. Did my bachelor's Master's my PhD. Just all back to back and started teaching shortly after. I finished my bachelor's is about thirty one years old thirty two years old I think and My very first teaching job was at an inner city school in in Cincinnati. Ohio and reconciling my teacher education and then the actual day to day lived experience of teaching in that particular classroom was such a jarring experience to some ways not a negatively jarring experience but one. That just was really a rich. You know a lively experience that it really triggered my curiosity and it just happened to be at the same time that I was beginning. My Masters Studies. I'm reading new Ideas New theories kind of connecting. What I'm reading what I'm doing in the classroom and and and it was just a really exciting aspect of my life. It also I think that interplay between theory and practice that praxis if you will Also contributed to me losing that job in a funny way because I was undertaking a very social activist approach to curriculum planning and instructions so I was trying to take the the ICT teacher and it's really hard to make that relevant to To the concerns when you open a book on chapter on Excel and formatting an excel spreadsheet and the instruction saying you know pretend that you're a CEO of a widget producing company in the kids. Go I don't want to pretend under. Ceo of a widget. I don't care what widgets are I. I'm living in impoverished area in Cincinnati Ohio and got real life challenges facing me. You know I felt like I was really undermining the potential of the curriculum for them by taking that kind of mundane approach and so we flipped the creek and around and started looking at. How can I meet the Standards and outcomes that are listed in the curriculum in a way that gets the young people involved in local politics in conversations about You know like for instance. They were debating whether we should be smoking in public places at the time and my pupils of many of them. Even though they're fourteen fifteen years old were smoking inside and their parents were smoke. And I said okay. Well you know you guys have a voice in this. Let's contact our local politicians. Let us right to our state politicians. Let's put some Posters together around the school to get people talking about it and they formatted those all through word and counted votes. Excel stuff like that so we were meeting. You know the tick boxy. I hate to say of standard sides of things but what was really happening. creek in Wisconsin becoming much more life for us and in a in a real way but that eventually translated to them becoming so politically involved that they were supposed to have a position on the board of Governors as as a student advisory student role on there and they weren't being given that opportunity and they Plan to strike a sit in at school without me knowing about it and I show up to school on Monday morning. And there's a hundred students lined up in the corridors gone. We're not going to school today. Because Dr Smith says that we need to express our voice. Ya got him it being so it was great and but the next year the school district to renew my contract is a story. I I wrote about it in my blog That I that I have in a much more succinct fashion. So you know I recommend if anybody's interested to to check out my blog but yeah so then what happened to that was as I. I always wanted to come to Wales. I found an opportunity to do an international teaching research fellowship at the University of Wales Trinity. Saint David So right after a teaching contract ended I came to Wales for a semester and taught An introduction to Social Collusion. I think it was or inclusive practice in education module and then when that was over I went back to the states and Continued on with my during that. Time is doing my. Phd is also got a different teaching job at a very affluent school. It was the fifth ranked school district in the state We had Congress. People's children there one of my students a year. Seven pupil has she had a personal shopper and her budget for her monthly expenditures was roughly my house payment at the time and so I went from one extreme to the other but when I wrapped up my PhD. I had some serious conversations with my family. But what our next steps word and the idea was to go To teach at a university I put out many many applications and Eventually was offered a position at the University of the South Pacific. Which meant that? My family and I would move to Tonga for two years and so we spent two years in the South Pacific working with the Eleven Pacific island nations in developing policy for their individual contexts. So I was lucky enough to Write and develop the national teacher. Registration Certification Program for for Tonga and to contribute to the standards for teachers in the Pacific region and just really exciting work But it wasn't where we wanted to be to come to Wales because of my family's connections Wales so that's that's how I got here. Why range of experience about the story isn't it said to hit it. Be An rebel ended up for you and your story. I came down and spoke to our students and some of our listeners. May Have heard your your presentation. Did Not that long session that we had you gave as an absolute rollcall of curriculum theories in curriculum theorists. You you famously kind of your books and I got them out of your the students and gave him quite the reading list so in terms of your own practice in your own philosophy of education. What's where do you sit in the landscape of curriculum theory in which which theorists have been most kind of formative in guiding you'll practice new philosophy I think it really start. Started with me by differentiating between creek than theory and curriculum. Sheer rising because curriculum theory is basically a pre. It's comprised if approaches that try to Make curricular decisions based on these kind of universal generalizations or by concentrating on creek their models. And so you know I it's like looking for a unified theory of curriculum for instance and I was very skeptical of these kinds of approaches. But when you look at what curriculum theorizing is then it shifts it and we start to think about carefully. About how real people in specific situations can Intellectualize Krikken how they can come to understand. How do we arrive at the most desirable course of action? That can then be carried out in those circumstances and this is all subject to deliberation critique and change and it's an ongoing process. It should be part. They my opinion of every teacher's Practice it involves the practice this reflects action and reflection but it also involves giving teachers time to sit back and and put together a theory about what they're doing what they hope to achieve and in fact a lot of times we talk about theory without really knowing what it is. We're talking about like what is a theory for instance so my particular or at least the area of curriculum theorising that. I am most persuaded by the one that I find. Most exciting to work in is broadly referred to re conceptualist Curriculum theorizing in the sixties An individual named Schwab. There was a lot of deliberation in cricket. A time about is it a field. Is it a discipline. And what are we doing and Schwab a famous Article where he basically said. The creeks field. The field curriculum is more abundant. We'll have nowhere to go. And we need to kind of re envisioning or reconceptualise ation of the field and so when that happened and people started to take critical. Exploratory approaches to Curriculum theorizing. These started to think about social control social reproduction. Those kinds of things so like Basil Bernstein for instance was working in in from a sociological perspective on curriculum looking at social control bulls in dentists. We're talking about social reproduction. And they're famous article about schooling a capitalist America do obviously was writing about cultural reproduction..

"New marvel opening. Made me. What happens right after it? Thank you. Thank you. Stand. The horrific. There was a standing ovation. Yeah. It was just shoving Couva wash. When it just started happening. It was like you just start hearing clamps. Oh, actually, I was in a completely packed theater. Everyone. The moment went thank you stand. I heard everyone in the here to go. Yeah. It was just too real was pretty that was pretty amazing because there's. The subject Stanley reading mallrats. I film cameo ever. Kevin Smith credible. Shoutout. Started his his love of having cameo in movies reading his actual line from the flu my mind to see that. Yeah. Because Kevin Smith and rats, and I love that that Stanley is in mallrats. And that was probably what it was doing in nineteen ninety-five was looking over the mole at script. It's yeah. It's the most beautifully meta thing. I've ever we'll so cute cool. Because like you see, you know, captain marvel look at the smile agent kinda like this is we're looking I it stays on her her reverse shot a little bit longer than it. Probably would normally. Yeah. Because it's the medium looking back at it. Right. Oh, my favorite part. I'm just gonna go straight into the heavy stuff. My favorite part is when she's talking to the final form of the supreme intelligence, and she was like I've been fighting with one hand behind my back. What happens if I just finally go she takes the inhibitor chip. But then they played can I just say shout out to playing come as you are. Yeah. That was perfect. I my favorite part of that sequence. Is the fact that she sees all her memories of her falling yen. I thought so when I first saw it I thought it was very consistent, which I thought she had come stood back up every time she had fallen from the same side different size. But regardless it's the same notion. Also, what is the film's open up with it opens up with her waking up on her side. Yeah. And so like I love this like mantra of her having to get back up again every time should humans do. Yeah. And it's not because like she got put down, but is because every time kinda like higher for the faster like every time you just about to just about to run. And you fall down, you know, you fly right? And it's like that feeling of you know, she has to find her strengthen herself there are points where I felt like there could have been cooler add to that. But I really just like that in were journey. Yeah. And I it kind of all Kolesas at the very end. Yeah. I think it's it's really it's really. Poignant right now. I liked it. I think there's an interesting way to go about it. But we'll talk about that later. Yeah. It's it's it's one of my favorites because it's just shot. Really? Well, and feels very good to me. That's the climax. Yeah. I agree that a hundred percent that was one of my favorite parts to just because like the relevancy of of life, journeys and stuff. So I saw myself in that character in that moment, and it was great. Yeah. Are you going go binary on us now? Yeah. One hundred. I loved go ahead. I mean, my favorite part. Like hands down is the mallrats K meal. And I know it's not related to the movie or whatever didn't it's an but. Yeah. That just on a whole different detail the plot. Like like, my mouth was open for like for like a solid into after that happened. I would just like taking back. I was like oh my God. Amazing numbers. Yeah. I was like because I was thinking about dizzy know about it. Like, what's his first reaction? Like right now in tears. I know it I'm sorry. Kevin. I wish I could hug you or something happy. Sure. Besides. Yeah. I think I think what my favorite moments in. I knew this was going to be my favorite moment.

"kevin smith" Discussed on The Sheepdog Project
"Feel better be energized be focused via warrior, so we're gonna talk about today today is going to be my first movie review episode. I love to watch movies. I absolutely love to watch movies. And I got very inspired by listening to I listen to the Kevin Smith podcast Fatman on Batman big fan of Kevin Smith. And I really like, it's it's it's particular taste, right? If you're not a comic book fan, you probably won't like it. Not a Kevin Smith fan. You probably won't like it. It's very unique an-. And people are kinda shocked at that. I listened to it. It doesn't would Kevin Smith, and I probably hang out together. And go to go to the range go to the gym together. Probably not. But I'm a fan of fan of his work. I think he has a very interesting mind. And I I like his take on things, and he does move your views. He did a great. Our did a great review of avengers Infinity war that I really liked. He did one of on the spider verse, which I took my kids to see a movie really enjoyed it. And I liked the way breaks down. He literally just tells you the whole movie and kind of interjects his thoughts individual scenes, he's got an I for it. And I I really appreciate that. So that's kind of the style that I'm gonna use. And what I'm gonna talk about today based on the suggestion of from an Email from under us a border patrol agent was asking me about the scar movies. I'm gonna talk about the seconds Cario movie. Sicario the day this'll Dotto and spoiler alert. If you haven't seen the film. Then I'm gonna spoil it for you. Because I'm going to basically tell you everything that happens because I'm gonna go almost seen by seeing here. But I'm going to interject a Mattel, you what I think and give you my honest opinion on everything that occurred in that movie, and, you know, take it for for what you will this might be your Cup of tea. Hopefully, it's an episode you listen to in it's entirety. But I'm probably going to do some more of these and hopefully they'll be on films. Right. When they come out just because something that I like to do, and it's like to share with you. You know, not I'm not gonna do on every movie that comes out, but on films that I think I have a unique take on because of my life experience. I'm going to talk about so it's we're gonna talk about today. So I form us. I'm gonna say the best thing about this movie. Emily blunts characters not in it. So this isn't necessarily about Emily blunt alum, not real crazy about Emily anyway. But her character was week. All right. The the first Sakaria move. It was great. But really so her character was a representation of kind of establishment and public naievety. Right. That this that this is a war. This is a gruesome, bloody war. There are horrors going on in the narcotrafficking world. And if you're not prepared to stomach that if you're not prepared to fight them on a certain level than you're not a quip to be in this fight. You have no business being and that was pretty much summed up in the last scene of that movie where Benicio del Toro's character Leandro, you know, basically could kill her and says, you know, you're just base, your sheep. You don't belong here. This, you know, this is where wolves hang out you need to go away. And and that was true. She was completely. And she knew it that was that was the dawning of that in that last scene is that he was absolutely right. She was completely ill equipped to be in that war. So thankfully, it doesn't pick. With her character, basically picks up. It's more fast paced movie, I felt than the last one maybe not as gruesome course, of the last month started out pretty gruesome..

As one of your favorite authors has died or one of your favorite actors has died, especially when they've created so many great characters. That's what he was. He was authored, and he was a crater and the story guy who's producer as you know, in Hollywood. If he was in Hollywood, that's what he would have been a writer director producer everybody was in comics. So he was helping the guys, you know, shape stuff and come up with the name. He came up with the name Spiderman. Handed off to dicicco and Kirby. And then of course, they ran with it. And actually, drew everything. Yeah.

"Let's move on to our next topic in this news discussion, and that is wonder, woman nineteen Eighty-four has gotten has announced their composer Brad tells us about it. Yeah, it's a pretty exciting.

I, you know, I, I enjoy the theme, but that came from the Batman versus superman ejection of wonder woman, but Rupert grace. Williams still did a pretty good job making a solid score for it. But for wonder, woman is eighty four. We're getting Hans Zimmer who is probably best known for providing the score for all the Christopher Nolan, Batman movies, and having him on board is definitely, I think going to make this movie even more epic than the first one Hans emerges has away with his orchestral arrangements that has really brought a lot of life to DC movies, and he's just he's really just one of the best, you know, composers out there like Hans Emmers among the household names that you hear when people know people who have scored movies among ended likes of John Williams and things like.

I I remember Hans Zimmer was the one who composed wonderman. I sort of issue with you introduction theme and they reuse that for wonder woman. And I've maybe they'll kind of re imagine it for wonder, woman nineteen Eighty-four, which I'm very excited for perhaps a few more electric. Guitars. Ooh, I'm excited for him to sort of tap into maybe the cynth- of eighties music and see if he plays without a little bit. Oh, I didn't even think about that. That'd be. That'd be fantastic. I am so excited.
