SUCK OFF

Michael Atkinson's humorless review of Kevin Smith's latest movie, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back ["Chronic Fatigue," August 28], was far removed from the reality of the film.

For example, I am not sure what "pathetically blowjob-phobic" meant as a description of the movie. What I saw were several characters secure in their sexual identities, joking about blowjobs in a film that had some hilarious turns by George Carlin and Carrie Fischer.

Many people will not be able to tolerate the film's language. But for those of us who have a little Jay and/or (hopefully) a lot of Silent Bob inside us, this is a sweet, intelligent, and uproarious comedy. And Mr. Atkinson's quivering anger can't change that.

HIP-HOP FOR CHRIST

I enjoyed Lauren Sandler's article "God Save the Teens" [June 5]. Like most positive hip-hop, Christian hip-hop gets very little play from the industry, so it was nice to see that there was an article in The Village Voice on it. As a seminary student who is also a hip-hop head, I would like to see more on positive hip-hop in general and Christian hip-hop in particular. It would also be nice to see some critical reviews of Christian hip-hop.
