Pour One Out For: David Carradine 12/8/36 – 6/3/09


Just when I thought today was going to kick some stellar ass, I find some terribly awful no good very bad news.  Renowned actor David Carradine has died.  I know.  Fucking sucks!  Here’s what Yahoo found out about this travesty, but I warn you…you may not like what you’ll learn.

“BANGKOK – Actor David Carradine, star of the 1970s TV series “Kung Fu” who also had a wide-ranging career in the movies, has been found dead in the Thai capital, Bangkok. david_carradineA news report said he was found hanged in his hotel room and was believed to have committed suicide.

It said Carradine was in Bangkok to shoot a movie and had been staying at the hotel since Tuesday.

The newspaper said Carradine could not be contacted after he failed to appear for a meal with the rest of the film crew on Wednesday, and that his body was found by a hotel maid at 10 a.m. Thursday morning. The name of the movie was not immediately available.

It said a preliminary police investigation found that he had hanged himself with a cord used with the room’s curtains. It cited police as saying he had been dead at least 12 hours and there was no sign that he had been assaulted.”

Carradine starred in such sweet films as Death Race 2000, Kill Bill: Vol. 1, Kill Bill:  Vol. 2, Kung Fu:  The Movie, Evil Toons, Waxwork II:  Lost in Time, and more martial arts movies than Chuck Norris can round-house kick.

I’m gonna go drink myself retarded.  This sux beyond suckage.

    I work with 60 year old women, 18 year old kids, and one gay man. No one shared my pain this morning at work. Everything about this seriously blows. “Kung Fu the Legend Continues” made my middle school years bearable. When I finally got to see some of the original series I was already hooked. It even made my day to see him briefly in Crank 2. Again, this seriously blows.
