I have been a fan of Kevin Smith since high school. Somehow I managed to watch his movies in reverse chronological order, starting with Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, and ending with Clerks in the summer after my senior year. It’s a good thing I did, too – it’s the best way to do it. The movies keep getting better!
I don’t know if this is normal, but it seems like it could be. I have these things that are inextricably linked to people in my life. Ex: I will never hear American Pie without imagining being in the frat house basement. I will never hear Travelin’ Band or Tom Waits or watch Top Gear without thinking of Ryder. Any kind of motorsport makes me think of my dad. The Three Amigos, swimming pools, cold coffee, or fly swatters? Aunt Sherry.
