Manowar and Christopher Lee - Dark Avenger

I have been rocking to the Xmas Sir Christopher since yesterday, but somehow his addition to the ranks of Real True Metal escaped me.

So, we have a wizard and a barbarian....

It's important to remember that Christopher Lee is 90 years old.

Absolutely. It's astonishing and inspiring. I saw that somewhere, mentioned in passing, and I was like, "No way!" And then I went and I looked it up and sure enough.

Fucking A, Christopher Lee.

I think it's awesome that he's been at the "Fuck it, I'm going to have fun" stage of his life for decades now.

Yeah, I've been trying to work that tip since about my eleventh birthday ... but it's hard work. Takes all the fun out of it.

Is this the appropriate place to say that I think I just lost LDB?

I do. One co-starring Walken, Dinklage, Depp and Sidebe. Based on a Ted Chiang story.

He's such a gent, he usually waives his right to be properly formally addressed as "Sir Christopher Motherfucking Lee, Motherfuckers."

Why do you hate Ted Chiang?

I just watched this, and my argument was invalid.
