The Sound Of One Hand

Even at 72, actor David Carradine had a reputation for being a swinger, and I think he ended up taking it too literally. He pulled a Michael Hutchence last week while filming in Bangkok: found dead in a closet, hanging with his hands and Little Kung Fu roped off. Well hung, indeed. Quick travel tip: if you're in Thailand and you end up having sex with yourself- you've missed a hell of a lot on the local "To Do" list. I don't get autoerotic asphyxiation. I've done my share of freaky shit and I understand how sex can get boring, but I don't see how it's ever gonna get SO boring that I'm left with that as an option. Frankly, I can't imagine a more undignified way to die. (Actually, I can- his brother, Robert, will meet his maker having been responsible for THREE Revenge Of The Nerds movies.) It's a wasteful death, too. The image of your dad/husband/brother/grandfather accidentally dying while rubbing one out would eclipse whatever legacy they might have otherwise left. The French call the orgasm, le petit mort- the little death. I guess some people think getting your freak on is worth risking the big one, too. Rest in peace, Grasshopper.

He was gonna try needleplay instead, but he didn't wanna lose all those buckets of blood again.
