Arise, Sir Triple-Nippled Vampy-Wizard of Summerisle:

And about time too...

"Christopher Lee, best known for playing Count Dracula and starring in Lord Of The Rings, has been knighted in the Queen's Birthday Honours list."

What took you so long, Big Liz? Alan Sugar's had a knighthood for approximately 400 years, and what's he done, except peddle sketchy stereos, look like a badly-pickled walnut and shout 'bladdy' at MBA-clones? The only question is, of course; when Sir Vlad gets knighted, who is going to bow to whom? As any fule kno, Lord Summerisle is the posher of the two...

Now, I could fill an encyclopedia with the many, many, MANY faces of Sir C of Lee, but here are a few less-seen ones (thx Google Image Search!)

I have this very book myself...

Family Reunion, from House of Long Shadows (not quite sure where John Carradine's got to, though...)

Um...yes...well...The audition for Crimes of Passion went well, but in the end Ken Russell decided to go with Kathleen Turner after all; will posterity prove him wrong? No; not at all.

Stupid burns like a white-hot flame

Well.. if she can do it (or, perhaps more accurately, her underpaid PA can do it), then I suppose I can blog every day too.

I want you to know, non-existent readers, that I have never before in my life said "Bitch, please"...

But..."Bitch, please"

[adds a third spoonful of refined sugar to my morning coffee, and reaches over for another cinnamon roll]

Back From the Dead...

Well, that WAS a long hiatus, wasn't it, non-existent audience?

It's been a busy few months, so, what with work, and Christmas, and getting shacked up; which was nice.

I do seem be back now, though. Let's see how long it lasts.
