Wake up, take a shit, and check email

I just bought a book called "My Boring Ass Life" by Kevin Smith, brilliant director of movies like Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, Dogma, and most recently, Zack and Miri Make a Porno. It is essentially a daily diary of his life... It is very long, and very detailed, and pretty much every daily entry starts with the phrase "Wake up, take a shit, and check email." It then goes on to detail his life, and then every entry ends by saying what TV show he fell asleep watching. All in all it is prety mundane, yet for some reason, I'm unable to put it down... And if that sort of book is interesting to me, then maybe I do have something to say worth reading after all.

In other words, back by popular demand is my own little chunk of the vast void of socially redeeming content lovingly known as the Internets. That's right baby, the Sketchometer is back. So, to sum up my absence over the last many moons, well, I woke up, checked my email, did some stuff, changed jobs, suffered through a long cold winter without motorcycle therapy, watched TV, and fell asleep watching Iron Chef.

So happy there's going to be more SketchoMeter!

For more Kevin Smith, check out SModcast, which is a podcast he does with Scott Mosier, his longtime collaborator. It's not reliably super-good, but it has moments of great hilarity and honesty and is a neat peek behind the scenes, much as his book must be.
