I am a huge Bruce Campbell fan. I first saw him in Hercules: The Legendary Journeys & subsequently in Xena: Warrior Princess when I was five or six. He didn’t have a starring roll, just a recurring one. I didn’t know his real name then, or even the character name (Autolycus) but I knew him as POT (an acronym for Prince of Thieves, something Autolycus liked to call himself!)
Anyway, a few years ago I found out he wrote two books. And that they were actually pretty good. I was dying to get my hands on them. But they were obviously only available in USA. And they were pretty cheap on Amazon.com, but the delivery prices were exorbitant. So I wasn’t able to get them.
But then around Christmas this year I decided to try out flipkart. They got my the two books I wanted, with free delivery! And this is not the free delivery that takes forever to come. The first book arrived just two days after I paid for it. The second book took a while because it was coming from USA (I was informed well in advance that it could take up to 30 days). It arrived in about 20. And no I am not getting anything for saying this (though flipkart should consider making me their brand ambassador). Though I shop online a lot, I can say this is the first time in weeks I was satisfied with how the order went through, delivery time & the state of the package (in came in tissue paper & a padded cardboard box.

The books I ordere were:
1. If Chins Could Kill: Confessions of a B Movie Actor (2002)
A memoir written by Bruce Campbell almost a decade ago, this one went on to become a New York Time bestseller.

2. Make Love! The Bruce Campbell Way (2005)
This one is part fact & part fiction. In Bruce’s own words: Is it an “autobiographical novel”? Yes. I’m the lead character in the story, and I’m a real person, and everything in the book actually happened, except for the stuff that didn’t.

So… I have been feeling a little blue now that two of my current favorite TV shows are between seasons (Psych & Burn Notice) & one of my favorite TV shows Criminal Minds is getting messed up because those asshole executives down at CBS are firing the best cast members.

I have been a member of GetGlue for a while, and my first batch of stickers arrived a few weeks ago.

I only just noticed that this photo is a tad out of focus. Sorry about that.
My favorite stickers from the lot.

I think this goes to show that I am a huge TV show junkie. I mean, I think I love TV shoes more than movies. Films have bigger budgets, better production, cinematography and whatnot. But only TV shows can create complex story lines and great characters.
