I Can't Believe I'm Looking Forward to the 'KISS Korner'

I despise Wal-Mart. Basically I regard the company as an evil empire that I am sometimes forced to enter out of dire necessity. So, KISS will release Sonic Boom on October 6 exclusively through Wal-Mart.

Of course.

Here's the rub - Wal-Mart stores across the country are about to roll out so-called KISS Korners with a lot of crap I want. Sadly.

So what sort of KISS crap will Wal-Mart offer Glam lovers like me? Here's a list (courtesy of Blabbermouth):

* KISS "Sonic Boom" CD/DVD package - $12
* KISS T-shirts - $5
* Four select KISS Mr. Potato Head collectibles (The Demon, The
   Spaceman, The Catman and The Starchild) - $10
* KISS fleece blanket - $10
* KISS M&M candies (7 oz. bags - Limited Edition) - $6
* KISS catalog CDs such as "Dressed to Kill", "Destroyer", "Love Gun" and "Very Best of Kiss" — $5 - $9
* KISS makeup kits, masks and wigs (select Wal-Mart stores*) - $5


I want the CD/DVD combo, a T-shirt and the M&Ms for sure. M&Ms are my favorite candy, so I'll get swept away in the KISS hype. Gotta say that six bucks a bag is a bit steep for some basic candy, but oh well. The T-shirt is dirt cheap, so I guess it evens out.

So will you hunt down a KISS Korner?

I will definitely be grabbing a KISS tshirt and the CD/DVD set. Not sure about the rest.

I'm definitely going to be avoiding this. Luckily that's not going to be hard, as they don't have Wal-Mart in Britain.

I'm sorry, I can't help myself. I need at least one KISS Mr Potato Head.

I will definately be at a KISS Korner on October 6th. cd/dvd combo is awesome, and I'll probably get sucked into buying some KISS m&ms, and i also want the potato heads (though I'm not sure why i want them)....

I don't know I think I will buy album+DVD only, I hate how Simmons changed once great and serious band into Mickey Mouse thing, also constant Criss and Ace bashing is very sad, especially with Ace classy comments about Kiss. And I've heard some tracks off the new Ace and Kiss albums and Ace album beats the crap out of the KiSS one.

Except for the candy you should be able to pick up most of this stuff on ebay in six months.

I may have someone purchase the Sonic Boom CD only. Otherwise, I will rabidly avoid the Kiss Korner at any cost. I despise Mr. Simmons because he reeks of money. Well, they all do, but Simmons gets more publicity for it.

Indeed, Ace's new record is 10 times better than Sonic boom. Take that money you were going to spend on Kiss potato heads or whatever and buy the new Ace album called Anomaly. You'll be glad you did.

The Ace CD sucks and I love Ace but come on he cant write worth a crap.

I am counting the days until the Kiss Korner arrives at my local WalMart. The new CD is a must have and T-shirts for $5? How can I say no to that???

I'm just wondering why they are so cheap. Are they going to fall apart when I wash them?

And the new ACE CD is solid. Not perfect by any means, but still a great record.
