Quinn + Tonik Vol.18: Eastern Promises
Read: From Russia With Love
I've always preferred Sean Connery as Bond in the movie versions. Still do. Even after hanging out with Roger Moore and Michael Caine most summers in the south of France as a kid.*
But James Bond as expressed in his original form by Sir Ian Fleming is a whole different kettle of fish. Impeccable suits. Stylized armory of gadgets. Booze and birds.
So mix yourself a martini, pick up the un-Hollywooded version, and make your own judgement. We've been told that JFK would do similar as this particular Bond novel was rumored to have been his favorite page-turner.
* technically correct, if only in passing on the same British Airways planes to the south of France throughout the 1980's where they were cavorting with their beautiful wives and inhaling champagne as I studied my book in coach.
watch: eastern promises
When we were bored to tears with seeing Edward Teach's skull and bones on everything, we looked east for skull inspiration.... And were not let down. Thus our TM logo was born.
Be prepared for tattoos, turkish baths in London, and some serious twists and turns as Viggo Mortensen and Naomi Watts dance a Russian mafia dance.
Vodka straight with one cube for this one.
