Sears and K-Mart recently . . . merged.
They're moving the K-Mart home office to Chicago.
In the Evil Dead series, Ash works in the Housewares department . . .
It's a type of K-mart, and the creators of the series are blatant Michiganders.
If they have actually merged, then could it be possible that the new name for the stores . . .
Say hello to that boom-stick.
are you going to get a job there then?

So Not Going There.
I interviewed once at Troy HQ.
They passed up on me.
That was 1998 or 1999 . . . right before it hit the fan.
They did me a favor by passing on me.
But... but... you didn't include the punch line! And now I can't!
I won't mind if you do!
There are so many punchlines to include.
It's hard to pick.
That was very convincing!!!
I have a feeling that if there were no Army of Darkness, there would be no value to Duke Nuke'Em.
I might get crucified for this:
I HATE the "Evil Dead" films. HATE THEM.
Considering that I love them, consider yourself not crucified.
Unless it pains you greatly to explain why you hate them, scuse, HATE THEM, I'd be interested to hear about it, considering that I think it's possible for the trilogy to cut to the chase and be re-edited into one huge hobbit-like film.
BTW, I really don't like Tolkien or the films, despite the fact that it was Jackson who did them.
Love Jackson, can't stand hobbits.
I, too, hate "Lord Of The Rings". When I was in elementary school and read it, it was cool, but I hate the films, minus the Disney animated one.
But back to "Evil Dead". Sam Raimi seems to just want to cash in on the "splatter craze", and though that's admirable, it's ridiculous because the movie he makes is utterly unwatchable and ridiculous. The premise comes right out of an Argento or Fulci film, with slight Americanization, yet everyone champions "Evil Dead" as being incredible, and Fulci is a hack or whatever.
Bruce Campbell is a GREAT guy, seems VERY fucking cool. But Ash is soooooooo lame. Great one-liners for sure, but those don't save bad special effects, dumb story, bad handheld camerawork (a standby for Raimi it seems).
It does have GREAT sound design, though. For sure.
Well, anyone who thinks Raimi is genius and Fulci a hack, they have to reconsider that one.
I thought Darkman was well done.
Evil Dead is an important film primarily for the camera work of the unseen evil.
It is completely campy. It is camp for camp's sake.
One can basically watch the first one, fast forward through most of the 2nd installment (an expanded re-shoot of 1), and go right to Army of Darkness.
It's not the best series. If it wasn't for Army of Darkness, then Ash would not be quite as memorable.
The Tolkien dislike started with the books.
I think whoever turded on Fulci probably set you off when they held Raimi on a pedestal in comparison.
Yeah, you're probably right, about my resulting hatred of Raimi after hearing Fulci get knocked around.
I hate Raimi's "Spiderman" films, too. My all-time favorite comic book character ruined.
i'm thankful about the Spider-man films, they could have been much worse.
That's interesting to note.
I kind of liked 'em, considering the value was high for production.
My favorite time was when the Spawn guy did the Spidey comics.
