Roger Moore, most famously-known for playing James Bond, passed away this week. He was always happy about being known as 007.
James Bond, as written by Ian Fleming, is a smarmy, violent, misogynist. In addition the 007 movies have taken the violence to new heights. If you can think of it, Hollywood has blown it up in the name of British spydom.
So why am I a Bond fan? Why have I seen them all? More than once? Can probably tell you the names of the books and the movies in order? Why did I make a special trip to visit Schilthorn (On Her Majesty’s Secret Service locale) when I was in Switzerland? Have had more than one heated discussion about who was the best Bond? It doesn’t make any sense whatsoever.
Just one of my many quirks, I guess.
What’s your most outrageous “quirk”?
