Now, I don’t generally post pictures of pens, after all, there tends to be a lot of them on the website, and I don’t normally consider mine to be anything special.
Well, this time it isn’t mine, it’s my wife’s. And it was given to BRUCE CAMPBELL! Saturday the Alamo Draft House (a movie theater that serves alcohol and food) finished off Splatterweek with a screening of all 3 of the Evil Dead series. But, before the movie, Bruce Campbell was on-hand to sign autographs and take pictures.
I will never let anyone speak bad of Bruce again. He was outgoing, and willing to spend time with each of his fans. He talked with each person getting autographs and learned a little about them. He signed If Chins Could Kill for me, and we talked about Iraq and his tanks (because he is tax payer, so they are his!). He used the pen to sign the book.
After the autograph session, there was a picture session. He was impressive here too! A different pose for each picture (and yes some poor unfortunate souls got “bunny eared”). But for ours, he had to show-off the pen! Which of course we gave to him after the photo.
The last event before the movies was a question and answer period, and I was impressed. He was entertaining, engaging, insulting, irreverent, and enthusiastic. He handled every question well, even the ones he didn’t want to answer. Hell, he was up there for almost an hour and a half, and left everybody in the crowd satisfied.
Perhaps most entertaining, however was that he sneaked back into the theater when Evil Dead was playing, so that he could heckle the movie. CLASSIC!
It is great when someone who is famous surpasses all expectations, and Bruce certainly delivered. Next time I will need him to sign a model of one of my (okay, his) tanks: BOOMSTICK!
If you don’t know Bruce, you are missing out! He is the king of “B” movies, and has been in shows like Hercules and Xena (as well as currently “staring” in Burn Notice on USA). Now, if only the pen would make an appearance on Burn Notice, it wold be the coup de grace.
If you are interested, my wife does woodworking and other crafts as well. You can find her at: erinscreative.blogspot.com
