In 1960, Tom and James Monaghan borrowed $900 and bought a small, ailing pizza shop on the fringes of the Eastern Michigan University campus. Early on, business was horrible and James sold his half of the company to his brother for a used Volkswagen Beetle. Tom persisted and, by 1978, had expanded Domino’s Pizza into a 200-store enterprise worth $500 million.
Bruce Campbell Says He Plans to Star in ‘The Evil Dead’ TV Series
by Alex Stedman, Variety
Just when “Evil Dead” fans thought they couldn’t get more excited, original trilogy star Bruce Campbell dropped some more news on them.
At Comic-Con last weekend, Sam Raimi announced that he’s bringing “The Evil Dead” to life once more with a TV series while at a panel discussing the movie adaptation of videogame “The Last Of Us,” which he’s producing. He’s planning to write and direct the project with his brother, Ivan Raimi, co-writing. He also mentioned that he was drafting Campbell to topline.
On Sunday, responding a fan’s question on Twitter, Campbell confirmed that he does indeed plan to return to the franchise to star in Raimi’s series.
It’s been more than three decades since the first “The Evil Dead” film spawned. It would go on to inspire two sequels and a 2013 reboot, which Campbell had a post-credits cameo in.
Larry Flynt: “Writing is on the wall” for Hustler print mag thanks to Internet
But he insists company keeps making money while embracing Internet and “diversifying.”
by Sam Machkovech
Hustler Magazine founder Larry Flynt has begun making the interview rounds to promote the pornography magazine’s 40th anniversary, but in a Monday interview with Bloomberg TV, the incendiary publisher spoiled the birthday party by predicting a short lifespan for his print edition.
"I don’t think Hustler's going to be around very much longer,” Flynt said. “Most people are getting their information from the Internet. It's a technology evolution that brings a lot with it and takes a lot away.” When asked if he knew when the magazine would cease publication, Flynt said that it will remain so long as it continues to make money, adding “but we can see the handwriting on the wall.”
A drone hybridized with an amphibious hovercraft has been presented at the Innoprom-2014 technology exhibition in Russia’s Yekaterinburg. This unique UAV doesn’t need an airfield to launch, so the only alternative is a helicopter.
Russia’s Rostech state corporation presented the first-ever drone that can land on any terrain, whether hummocky land, loose snow, sand, water, or swampland – any relatively flat surface will do.
Since I was a kid, I was always intrigued by unexplained phenomenon and the supernatural. In fact, I remember explicitly taking out a paranormal investigation book every day during lunch in the fourth grade. That said, though I had watched a few episodes of THE X-FILES while it was still on the air and caught the first film in theaters, I wouldn’t have called myself a die-hard fan. Flash forward to the advent of instant streaming, nine seasons later and I finally knew what I was missing.
Judge Finds Woman Guilty of Beating Dominatrix With Bat
By Joseph Hosey
A Park Forest woman claimed she only wanted a “slave” to take pictures of her as she did some naked housekeeping but instead was surprised by a dominatrix who put the moves on her and then dragged her by the hair out of bed, ostensibly to rape her.
As compelling as 46-year-old Kimberly Williams’ testimony was at times during her trial for aggravated battery, Will County Judge Edward Burmila wasn’t buying it—at least not enough to find her innocent.
“When I penned my little opus about almond milk last week, I really didn’t intend to insult anyone’s intelligence, provocative headline aside. What I really wanted to do was encourage people to think about what they’re buying when they buy this hot-selling product.”
“Reactions mostly hovered in a range between mild annoyance and blind rage.”
