RIP Sir Christopher Lee
« on: June 12, 2015, 12:02:48 AM »
Quote from Wikipedia:
Quote
Lee died at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital on 7 June 2015 at 8:30 am after being admitted for respiratory problems and heart failure shortly after celebrating his 93rd birthday in hospital. His wife delayed the public announcement until 11 June, in order to break the news to their family.

That man, if any, was legendary. In WW2 he volunteered to fight (first here in Finland) and in 2013 he made a heavy metal album. And then there were those movies, in my opinion he is The Dracula.

Sad news, but understandable. He lived more than a lifetime.
Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue.

Its hard to imagine being surprised by the death of a man in his nineties, but here I am, surprised by the death of a man in his nineties. His adventures on and off screen are legend and I can only hope that the man who voiced Death on more than one occasion will have a special job lined up in the afterlife, hopefully with Terry Pratchett consulting on his dialogue.

Sad news.

Another thing to note, he was the inspiration for the character of James Bond. He is more awesome every time I hear about him.
