Yeah, I'm going to say the same as cecil. I'm not smart enough to be a conventional nerd with the science and all that, I'm definitely a film nerd/geek. Film is the only thing I get REALLY geeky about...with all my other interests, I'm just passionate.

I'm not unsociable either, I'm just shy.

I like people. I just don't like them "live". They are better when they are on a bigscreen.

I've been labled a film nerd by my friends simply because I used the term cinematography once. I'm ok with the title.

Milhouse: "I'm not a nerd, Bart! ......nerds are smart."
""Money doesn't come into it. It never has. I do what I do because it's all that I am." - Morrissey

"Lacan stressed more and more in his work the power and organizing principle of the symbolic, understood as the networks, social, cultural, and linguistic, into which a child is born. These precede the birth of a child, which is why Lacan can say that language is there from before the actual moment of birth. It is there in the social structures which are at play in the family and, of course, in the ideals, goals, and histories of the parents. This world of language can hardly be grasped by the newborn and yet it will act on the whole of the child's existence."

I will make a public confession.

Last weekend, I watched Jay and Silent Bob.

...And I actually liked it...

One thing that occurred to me as they surfed Movie Poop Shoot Dot Com was that I have created a poop shoot of my own.

And pretty soon, A heroin addict and a rotund PTA hater are going to show up at our door and kick our asses.

I hate to admit it after all the shit that went down with Kevin Smith and PTA, but there is an awful lot of truth in Jay and Silent Bob. Painful truth.

Recommended viewing for all Xixaxies.

nothing to be ashamed of, i love J&SBSB. And I'm also a computer messageboard nerd. See, you can tell who's a computer message board nerd if Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back is J&SBSB, or if Punch Drunk Love is PDL or things like such.

Well, although the stereotype affiliated with nerds is usually science and stuff, I think I'm a nerd. Everytime I talk to someone about films or digital technology or something, I see the awkwardness rise as they desperately try to end the conversation. I'm having a hell of a time talking, but all they want to do is get away from me. I think that definetely qualifies me as a nerd. Plus I have absolutely no social life to speak of, so...
Although, I think I agree with Cecil about the nerd/geek difference. I think I'm more of a geek. But that can be cool, right?

Ugh. I hate Jay and Silent Bob the very most out of all of Kevin Smith's films. It makes Chasing Amy look like Bergman. It just epitomizes everything I can't stand about him. Smugness disguised as self-deprecation, and a level of disingenuousness and cynical pseudo-populism that would make Eddie Vedder himself blush. Any South Park episode does what Smith tries to do in that film with 10 times the laughs and more succinctly, too.

Everyone should see it to form their own opinion, but please- I'm asking you, lord- let them not see "painful truth" in it?

Hmmm. I loved Jay And Silent Bob. I guess I was really in the right mood when I saw it.

It just made me want to scurry home and watch Bigger, Longer, and Uncut again, just to remind myself I did have a sense of humor and my reasons for hating Jay weren't because of the "what" (the jokes, the content) but "the how" (the smugness, the sloppiness and, for a comedy, the rather grim and lifeless tone).
