I put it on my calendar to get back to Westwood tonight as soon as I could get out of work. The reason: the grand opening of Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash. Kevin Smith is signing stuff from 5 to 10 PM. I got there at six and it was a clusterfuck of humanity. The line to the store went down Westwood Blvd. to Kinross and circled around half-block up Broxton. There were at least a thousand people in line. I asked a woman in the middle of the line when she got there and she got there at 3:30. She and the people around her got a laugh when I said that there were more people there tonight than who went to see Jersey Girl (In case you're lurking, Kevin, just kidding. I saw JG on my flight and it was phat.)
Dudes, there is no way I was going to wait three hours to have anyone sign anything.(KS signed my stuff at the Bourne Identity premiere). I peeked inside the store and it's stocked with cool stuff.
UPDATE: When I walked out of a place on Westwood, Jason Mewes was there. He was talking to a woman so I didn't want to ruin his rap.
