There is very little here for the headline to get wrong, yet it somehow manages.

/very cool reading, though. Although Lee could read the nutritional information on a box of cereal and make it sound cool.

This is how I will always remember him, but if he really is pushing 90, I hope I look that good at that age. Hell, I hope I make it to that age.

My grandpa died at 75 looking like a piece of crap. Chris Lee must be using some kind of spell...like a wizard!

I've always enjoyed the cadence, tonality, and inflection of Christopher Lee's voice, but I feel like that poem was meant to be read just a mite faster. The action in it necessitates a more urgent pace. Would that I could read everything in Christopher Lee's voice, though.

Never really understood that poem before now.

Took me a second, but good call. Would never have realized otherwise.

Also, this is unbelievably freaky.

It's a great poem, but Mr Lee read it like someone doing a Henry Irving impression.

Interestingly enough, there are some who consider Jabberwocky to be a parody of the 'Old Hundredth'. It certainly fits the music.

And he is still trying to kill a wizard and a hobbit.

Maybe subby sits in a more upright position?

Jesus, a quick look and I saw 'Christopher Lee' and 'dies', and my heart skipped a beat.

I never thought it was all that brillig, to be honest.

Subby has an odd definition of "sits down."

Aw, but the Jabberwocky just wants to play (new window)...
 
2010-03-22 12:45:55 PM  
This is even better (new window, FF to 1:34)

that scared the hell out of me as a kid. think I was 5 or 6 at the time of watching it. nightmares for weeks.

I hated that we had to do "memory work" in grade eight so I found the most bizarre thing I could to recite - Jabberwocky. I still remember it fourty five years later.

Hey, it's Skull leader of that gay motorcycle gang in the movie Serial.

Classic scene invading the Oriental House of Harmony. Best line, "That's easy to say bit are you willing to prove it?"

I'm guessing you filled your shorts in the first 20 seconds of this scene as well (new window).

But hey, there's always the Muppets (new window).
