    Last night I watched his documentary 'Fanalysis' on the 'Book of the Dead' dvd, and after seeing how much at ease he is with his fans and approachable, and the fact that he always PERSONALLY respondes to his e-mail, I though "what the hell" and gave it a shot.
    Now, I had no idea of what I was going to say to him, I love the guy, but I tried not to come across as some geek or pathetic fanboy, so I just tried to be myself. I asked him what his stance was on the pan n scan issue that dvd is facing right now, and if the rumors about a 4th Evil Dead film were true. The rest was just basic stuff, I told him how much the films meant to me etc.. Basically, I CAME ACROSS AS A GEEK AND PATHETIC FANBOY!! [​IMG] But, he seems like a really nice guy, so hopfully he'll see past that, plus I told him that it was my very first time contacting any celebrity.
    So, we'll just wait and see if he replies, I know he get's tons of e-mail, but I told him he could contact me when he gets a chance and humbly thanked him for his time. I really hope he does though, that would be such a thrill, to get a personal e-mail from Bruce Campbell himself!

    Yeah, it's always funny to email with celebrities you like. I once exchanged some emails with Lisa Boyle because I needed the date of an arrangement she was attending. She is a very nice person indeed! [​IMG]

    I sent a very similar e-mail to him after watching Fanalysis. This was almost 2 weeks ago and still waiting...

    Thanks Mark, but who's Lisa Boyle?

    Matt, if I may ask, what did you say in your message?

    I sent a few emails back and forth with Tom Savini last year. (For those not in the know, Tom Savini's IMDB Profile . He's a really nice and down to earth guy.

    I once sent a letter to a CA 80s band called Excel.They hang out with the Janes Addiction,DRI,Suicidal Tendencies bunch.I was looking to see if I could get their albums on CD-they were out of print and hard to find.

    I was shocked when their singer called me up,we talked for a hour.Really cool!

    Let us know if Bruce replies.

    I emailed Bruce about 6 months ago, right after he came through Seattle on his book tour. No reply. I didn't take it personally, he's a damn busy guy. The fact that he even posts his email address for his fans is amazing.

    I got a four word reply from Mason Williams to an inquiry. Note I said four word not four letter. [​IMG]
    A friend of mine spoke briefly to Jerry Cantrell over the phone. Too bad neither of us is a fan of Alice in Chains.
    Now, Allysin Chaynes . . . that's a different story. Get me her number and I'll tell you if she responds. :p)

    Wow...Lisa B. is beautiful..though i've never heard of her before.

    I've emailed Tom Savini once & got a reply the very next day!..I then replyed again to thank him & mentioned a few more things i rogt to mention before & have'nt gotten a reply yet. I know he's busy..but it was kewl to get 1 reply & he's the first celeb. person i've tryed contacting.

    I was thinking of emailing Bruce after seeing the documentary as well. I'm not sure what to say though...but will email eventually.

    I e-mailed Bruce Campbell a couple of years ago. And lo and behold he answered a few weeks later. It was short and sweet and of course a typical Bruce Campbell answer. Maybe I'll post it one of these days.

    I don't suppose anyone out there thought of e-mailing John Carpenter did they? I'm a huge "pathetic geek-boy" fan [​IMG] By the way, I think it's amazing that any celebrity would be gracious enough to respond to your e-mails! Where do you find them in the first place? imdb.com?

    the only 'celeb' that I have emailed would be Jon 'Bermuda' Schwartz, 'Weird Al' Yankovic's Drummer and the maintainer of www.weirdal.com done that a couple of times, and he was quick and cool to respond [​IMG]

    I have corresponded to John Buccigross from ESPN 2's NHL 2 night. Is it a BAD sign when a celeb writes you back TOO fast? He wrote me a well thought out long response about a dilemma that a friend of mine was in. In fact, EVERYONE from ESPN.COM that I have ever written has written me back PROMPTLY. It makes me feel good.

    Nice pic, John. [​IMG] She is in Face Off, Bad Boys, and a lot of B-movies. She's primarily a model though, and has been in Playboys book of lingerie several times.
