    Never heard of that.

    Or that.

    Sorry.

    *sadface*

    indeed, Brisco County Jr was fantastic.

    I would like to thank Block Buster for counting an entire series as a rental. I would also like to thank Blank DVDs.

    Right so.........ok. Whos got Bruce Campbells phone#? Send him a text message. Ask if hes free the weekend of Aug 29th.

    Rumor is that all you have to do is say "Klaatu Varata Nicto" under the light of a full moon and he will appear.

    How can you be a Bruce Campbell fan and not heard of Brisco? You need to go out and buy the dvd's immediately! It's a western, mixed with a little Sci-fi, and it's got Bruce as the lead. Also, it was created by one of the producers of Lost and has a few cameos of Lost actors in it.

    If I run into Bruce around town, maybe I will ask him about PAX. I've seen him a couple of times and my buddy has also seen him around at the local bars here.

    Well that sounds cool. I will make a point of viewing a few episodes.

    Late news, I know.

    But the Onion -- purveyor of Wil Wheaton's "Games Of Our Lives" series -- recently put up a great review of Evil Dead II: Dead By Dawn

    Which comes with a very nice picture of Mr. Campbell looking as sane as ever:

    I think the reason we haven't heard from any of the high ups about this one yet is because they're thinking this is a good idea. Maybe giving him a call? Or at least that's what I'm hoping. Talk about epic.

    Well, maybe if Tycho and Gabe found a spot for him to be in Penny Arcade Adventures, then he'd not only fit in, he'd be at home....

    the man is relevant to gaming.. he has video games out, and his own role playing game.... on the cover the man has a wench on his leg and a chainsaw on his arm that is held triumphantly aloft..... he is MEANT to go to PAX.

    I felt PAX was more of a haven for geeks in general that pure hardcore gamers. While most everything has some relation to gaming, not everything is TIED to it, like the bands and music. They play some gaming songs, but they also do other songs.

    Bruce Campbell is akin to Wil Wheaton in my opinion and both should be equally welcome in our "hardcore" arms. Besides, who have we all learned to shop from?

    (to 300 voices)
    GEEKS!
    How do we shop?
    "SHOP SMART"
    Where do we shop?
    "SHOP S-SMART!"
    "BOOMSTICK, BOOMSTICK, BOOMSTICK!"

    I'll see if I can get in contact with his people. An old friend (and the special effects guy for the original Evil Dead) lives here in town, Tom Sullivan. I volunteer with his older brother Mike at the public access station. Not sure if it'll get me anywhere, but it's worth a shot.

    I've met Bruce Campbell a few times. I ran into him once at a bar after he did an event at Scarecrow Video in Seattle, and I've seen him at book signings & movie events in the area a couple times. Each time I've seen him I've either listened to him speak (at events) or had a chance to chat with him (at the bar) and I can definately say he's a very entertaining, very cool dude... but....

    I don't think he himself is a gamer... which kinda goes against his keynote creds. And also... he's had a long career of many films and TV shows that the "average" person doesn't recognize... all they recognize is Evil Dead/Army of Darkness. And while PAX'ers are far from "average" their gaming knowledge doesn't necessarily translate into Bruce Campbell career knowledge and it'd be rather boring to have a few thousand people asking him the same old questions he's heard for a decade about movies or about a sequel that isn't going to happen.

    Bruce Campbell is most definately cool... but I don't think he fits the bill for PAX. Now if I'm wrong and he's a gamer... then great. Or if we want to have a panel for sound/voice-over stuff... well I think he's a bit too big of a name for a side panel but if he did it that'd rock. Otherwise... I doubt he'd have much relevant input (he'd have awesome stories about everything cool in Hollywood...but not games).

    i think you keep mistaking this con for a VG only con... its about everything game/nerd related, and bruces kid is big into gaming. its funny that you would say that his speaking at pax doesnt "fit the bill" because who better to talk about nerds than a man who everyday talks and deals with the nerd community.

    I'm not mistaking PAX for anything, I know exactly what it is. You on the other hand seem to be confused...

    PAX isn't a nerd festival... it's a gaming festival. People really need to stop stretching it to fit any description they want in order to peg someone like Bruce Campbell as being relative to the cause.

    We might all be mostly geeks and nerds but that's not what PAX is about. It's about geeks, nerds, dweebs, casuals and even jocks coming together to celebrate gaming... Videogames, boardgames, cardgames, all games.

    Did you even watch Wil speak last year? Did he go on and on and on about Trekkies and how he deals with them at other conventions? No. He gave an amazing speech about gaming culture & influence on his life.

    Unless Bruce Campbell is a gamer and we just don't know it... he doesn't really have a lot to say on the subject. Cool as he is, he wouldn't be relevant at all to PAX.
