Ieri Kevin Smith ha compito 50 anni e così ha voluto celebrare con un post su Instagram tutti i traguardi della sua vita.

Tra questi, anche l’esser riuscito a sopravvivere a un fortissimo infarto, come potete leggere nel post qui di seguito:

L’ultimo giorno da quarantenne. Gli anni da ventenne sono stati splendidi, li ho trascorsi costruendo la mia carriera. Quelli da trentenne sono stati altrettanto meravigliosi, e li ho trascorsi costruendo una famiglia con Jennifer Schwalbach. Ma ho sinceramente amato gli anni da quarantenne, che ho trascorso diventando finalmente ciò che ho sempre voluto: me stesso! Il decennio che è cominciato con il mio spettacolo stand-up “Too Fat for Forty” a Red Bank finito con il tour in 65 città del #jayandsilentbobrebootroadshow. Nell’ultimo anno da quarantenne ho lasciato le mie impronte nel cortile del Chinese Theatre con Jay Mewes per l’eternità, Clerks è stato inserito nella Library of Congress, il podcast #veganabattoir con Harley Quinn Smith, Son-in-Lockdown su @tbsnetwork, Mooby’s Pop Up su #weho (con gli ultimi tre nel bel mezzo di una pandemia!).

Nei miei anni da quarantenne ono sopravvissuto a un infarto che avrebbe potuto rendere mia moglie vedova, ci sono stati Bruce Willis e Yoga Hosers! Ho potuto lavorare con il defunto Michael Parks (due volte!) oltre a partecipare a un podcast buffissimo per il film Tusk.

Domani mattina saluterò i 40 anni per sempre e accoglierò a braccia aperte i 50. Non voglio continuare a invecchiare perché sembra che nessuno abbia un bel finale, ma anche se ho poco spazio di manovra, sono sempre pronto per scoprire cosa succederà nel prossimo capitolo, sperando che restiate con me per tutta la corsa. Oh, i posti in cui andremo!

The last day of my 40’s. My 20’s were amazing, and I spent them building my career. My 30’s were wonderful as well, and I spent them building our family with @jenschwalbach. But I truly loved my 40’s, which I spent finally becoming who I always wanted to be: me! The decade that started with my “Too Fat for Forty” stand-up show in Red Bank ended with the 65 city #jayandsilentbobrebootroadshow Tour. The last year of my 40’s found me forever in the forecourt of the @chinesetheatres with @jaymewes, Clerks accepted into the @librarycongress, #veganabattoir with @harleyquinnsmith, Son-in-Lockdown on @tbsnetwork, and the @moobyspopup in #weho (with the last three happening in the middle of a pandemic)! In my 40’s, I survived a widow-maker heart attack, Bruce Willis, and @yogahosers! I also got to work with the late, great Michael Parks in my 40’s (twice!), as well as make a goofy podcast whimsy into @tuskthemovie. Tomorrow morning I will surrender my 40’s forever and eagerly embrace my 50’s. I don’t wanna keep aging because it never seems to end well for anybody – but even though I have little choice in the matter, I’m still ready to see what happens in the next chapter. And I hope you’ll continue to come along for the ride! Oh the places we’ll go! (Also? Happy Birthday @mingchen37! My fellow @comicbookmenamc co-star was born a day before me, years later!) #KevinSmith #49 #40s #forties
