Filmmaker. Journalist. Screnwriter. Film geek. Irrepressible curmudgeon. He’s been called “insightful”, “enlightening” and “highly entertaining”. Academy Award Winner(tm) Jon Voight called him “a very dangerous man”. He’s also been called “judgmental”, and an “egomaniacal monster”-and at least one internet-user accused him of being a criminal. Now, for your reading delight and amusement, five years worth of Watt’s articles, essays and random thoughts, ripped from his print columns and Film Threat online “Random Acts of Mike Watt” and “The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth”, are collected for the first time in this handsome thing made of actual paper. And you can decide for yourself which of those above descriptions are true and what other adjectives should be applied to him. (We’d like to recommend “pluperfect”, “opaque” and “low sodium”.)
Read timeless tales about his adventures at horror conventions; the time he went to a Renaissance Festival dressed as a cowboy; or the time he and Amy Lynn Best snuck behind the scenes at the Smithsonian Institution of American History! Enjoy his favorite blackouts with celebrities!
