A Trio of Random Links

Three interesting links for this afternoon:

Christopher Lee is releasing a 'symphonic metal' album, By the Sword and the Cross, about his ancestor, Charlemagne the Great. The album, due in March, is not the 87-year-old Lord of the Rings actor's first brush with metal, having previously guested on Manowar and Rhapsody of Fire albums.

Meanwhile, if you have ever asked the question - and who hasn't? - "What if Shakespeare had written the script for The Big Lebowski?" this website answers the question in some style.

Finally, British 'baroque-and-roll' band Muse have been asked to pen the soundtrack for upcoming movie Clash of the Titans, which could be quite interesting.

Interesting choice for the Clash of the Titans soundtrack.

And the words Christopher Lee and symphonic metal just don't seem to go together. But I'd be willing to give it a listen!

Modern translation: "I'll suck your cock for $10".

That website is genius!

Muse are one of the world's greatest ever bands. They're touring here in Oz in a couple weeks and I'm gonna miss them 'cause they're only playing a festival and not doing side shows :( Ah well, seen 'em a few times already.

Clash looks like idiotic fun but Muse Music added to is would make it even more fun.
