We have to understand that no matter what we do with our lives we will never be as awesome as Christopher Lee is.
I will never get over how he corrected Peter Jackson on the proper sound a man makes when he’s been stabbed in the back because he actually worked in the British clandestine services.
Or how he volunteered to fight in one of the most brutal fronts of WWII (the Finnish-Russian Winter War).
Or how he was fucking NAZI HUNTER.
Basically, Christopher Lee is the real Most Interesting Man in the world and I honestly don’t know why we tell Chuck Norris jokes when this badass is walking around.
And then I see him rambling on about how Saruman and Gandalf are actually Istari, which are one of the Maia in the LotR commentaries and I realize he literally cannot become more awesome.
I just read up on that and now I regret I didn’t include it! The man is 90 years old and he’s releasing a metal album next year. ACTUAL MOST INTERESTING MAN IN THE WORLD CHRISTOPHER LEE.
OH GOD I FORGOT ABOUT HIS METAL
GOD HE’S HARDCORE AS FUCK
He’s also played Dracula like 5 billion times and in the first one he refused to use the terrible dialogue and wasn’t fired.
He was also bros with Vincent Price and Peter Cushing, but unlike them was able to get away from the horror genre and forged a well-rounded career.
He can speak 8 languages and will sometimes do his own dubbing for foreign versions of his films.
His family carries the coat of arms of the Holy Roman Empire.
He really is the most interesting man in the world.
do you ever just cry because christopher lee
This is why I can’t have nice things… because Christopher Lee has them all already.
He also actually had JRR Tolkien’s blessing to play Gandalf.
excuse you, but robert e lee is related to HIM
don’t confuse the order of excellence here

DESTROY ME IT’S THE PERFECT GIFT
In honor of the ladies who have motivated, paved the way and given hope to so many of us, we rounded up powerful quotes from some of the world’s most inspirational women.
This cover of “LET IT GO” might be the best one yet.
Suddenly, I am in need of a cat
Interesting story from my time working at Petsmart:
One day, a woman came in with her German Shepherd and as she was walking through the store one of my co-workers stopped to talk to her. As the conversation progressed the employee (Amy) noticed the dog had something in his mouth.
She asked the owner if the dog had a toy or something, the woman had no idea what she was talking about. So Amy bent down to pet the dog and as she put her hand under the dogs mouth, it opened and dropped this bunny into her hand.
They guessed she picked it up in the parking lot or something, but the dog had just been carrying the bunny in his mouth. The dog wasn’t aggressive about it or anything, all we could figure was that the dog sensed it was a baby and wanted to help it.
‘Toy Stories’ is the result of an 18 month round the world trip where Galimberti visited a variety of countries and cultures and took photographs of children and their toys. Galimberti would often take part in a child’s games prior to arranging the toys for the photograph. He says:
“The richest children were more possessive. At the beginning, they wouldn’t want me to touch their toys, and I would need more time before they would let me play with them […] In poor countries, it was much easier. Even if they only had two or three toys, they didn’t really care. In Africa, the kids would mostly play with their friends outside.”
Despite some differences, Galimberti found similarities between children living worlds apart. Even in different countries, some children’s toys played the same function: protecting them from dangers and things they feared in the night.
The Italian photographer also found that many children were attached to toys that reflected the world that surrounded them in their particular area. A boy from an affluent Beijing family loves Monopoly because he enjoys the idea of building houses and hotels, while another young boy living in rural Mexico loves trucks because they travel through his village on the way to the sugar plantation everyday.
A lovely point Galimberti made about his experience was that toys haven’t changed all that much since he was a kid.
“I’d often find the kind of toys I used to have,” he says. “It was nice to go back to my childhood somehow.”
