R.I.P. Actor Christopher Lee

Christopher Lee dies at the age of 93

Lee’s most famous role for Hammer was playing Dracula, a role which became one of his most widely recognised although the actor wasn’t pleased with how the character was treated. “They gave me nothing to do!” he told Total Film in 2005. “I pleaded with Hammer to let me use some of the lines that Bram Stoker had written. Occasionally, I sneaked one in. Eventually I told them that I wasn’t going to play Dracula any more. All hell broke loose.”

He was in so many things!

But the most surprising — and delightful — role was his cameo in The Magic Christian.

Rest in peace.

Bob Lefsetz Versus The Apple Watch: Final Words

Apple Music

I’m mortified by my experience with the Apple Watch. Jony Ive may be a great designer, but when it comes to what’s under the sheen, he’s brain dead. You’re selling me a watch that doesn’t tell time, that doesn’t perform the basic functions of a wristwatch? And you’re selling it as a luxury good? This is all wrong and does not portend a good future, especially when Angela Ahrendts is hired to promote it. I used to believe in Apple, but my faith is flagging.

I wonder if he’d even dare to try the Pebble Time? If I was Pebble’s marketing team, I’d personally deliver one to him free to try!
