Nathan Schulz

Born and raised in California, Nathan has been a fiend for geeky pop culture for years. ESPECIALLY comic books and movies. Can't get enough. He also likes writing his own comic books (The Shrouded City) and drinking sparkling water. Maybe it shows we've grown as a society that nobody makes fun of him for making comic books... but he does get a lot of s**t for drinking sparkling water. Win some, lose some. If you feel like it, you can follow his twitter musings: @natethegreater

Sir Christopher Lee, an actor in over 250 films, has passed away.

Mr. Lee is a man who has had one amazing life, let alone career.

Not only did he fight in World War II, he also met JRR Tolkien, who gave him his blessing to play Gandalf if a Lord of the Rings movie was ever made.  Well, okay, he was Saruman, but still who else on the planet had that kind of experience?  No one, that’s who.  This is a man who has been in James Bond, Lord of the Rings, and Star Wars… and these are just a few of his movies.

Oh, and did I mention he made two heavy metal albums… in his eighties and nineties?

If we all tried to live our lives like Christopher Lee, we would be better off.
