Probably like many of you out there, I follow the director Kevin Smith on Twitter, and if you've been paying attention lately, he's been causing a bit of a stir. But, I'm not going to get into Smith's latest controversial pronouncement, and instead, I'm going to go back to a kinder, gentler tweet when the talkative filmmaker wasn't bashing critics and bloggers ... he was just talking about making movies. A few weeks ago, Smith had provided a few details about the origins of using The Pixies' Hey in his 2008 comedy, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, and even though that scene probably deserves its own Scenes (Songs) We Love, I went with another musical moment from that film, which at the time, had me cranking up the volume on my remote. Now my musical tastes run the gamut and any song can catch my fancy, but thanks to Smith and a man by the name of MC Chris, once I heard Fett's Vette in the romantic comedy I was in dork-heaven; witty hip hop and Star Wars references? Does it get any better?

Zack and Miri starred Elizabeth Banks and Seth Rogen as two lifelong friends who get into the adult filmmaking business when times get tough, and even though it wasn't the box-office smash that the Weinsteins (and Smith) were expecting, dollars are not always equal to quality. For me, the best part about Smith's romantic comedy was that it wasn't just an exercise in d**k jokes (don't get me wrong, there are plenty of them in there), but in the end, the film had some relatively sweet things to say about sex versus love, friendship, and most importantly: Star Wars.

After the jump; "my backpack's got jets" and a lesson in nerdcore...


The term 'nerdcore' was coined back in 2000 by an artist with the awesome name MC Frontalot, and the musical genre started off as a DIY subculture of Hip Hop that employed subject matter outside the usual refrains of Cristal and Bentleys. The tenets of nerdcore are much different than most Hip Hop, and nerdcore artists talk about the things beloved by the geekiest of the geeky -- and it doesn't get much geekier than a love of the baddest bounty hunter of them all: Boba Fett. Fett's Vette is the perfect song for the montage in which we watch our amateur smut peddlers getting ready to make their pervy masterpiece because not only does it speak to something near and dear to Smith's devoted fans ... it's just a cool song.
