Dinner with Dracula

Suave, composed without being self-centered, polite without being meek or squishy, Christopher Lee looked like everbody's favorite grandfather, his mellifluous baritone voice dignified, authoritative and easy to laugh.

A hit with the press, Mr Lee was humbly and intelligently answering questions from hoi polloi like the Bangkok press, International Foreign Film press, and me.

How does this relate to Spooning Out Brains? "Follow your passion!" (sketching interesting faces from life is one of mine) and "Strike while the iron's hot!" (Mr Lee may never cross my life-path again, AND the BKK FilmFest is only once a year, and picking his multi-faceted ultra-talented brain was a true PLEASURE!

Stunning, beautiful, and perceptive are your paintings. Why not add a little color to those magnificent creations. You can't be at the pole and the equator at the same time. You must choose your own line, as I hope to do, and it will probably be color- VG. Big ups to grabbing life by the horns and not letting opportunity slip away. But what if life is slipping away right now as I write this and you read it?

Cool paintings. I thought it was a shame that Christopher Lee didn't get a bigger part in LOTR. JRR Tolkien certainly made him a key character in his trilogy, even if it was as a representative of the kind of evil that comes of quisling appeasement. He will have better roles in the future after with Star Wars and LOTR appearances.
