R.I.P David Carradine. I will always remember you walking into the sunset, an exemplary wise drifter-loner.
As an aside, I didn't realize Martha Plimpton was his niece.
P.S. If anyone has any suggestions for additions to my male drifter-loners with bags series, please let me know.

I wonder, based upon the report of how he was found, if he was doing that auto-erotic asphyxiation thing? Sad news.
lisa: You would’ve hoped that Michael Hutchence had scared celebrites off of that. No one wants to be found like that.
Yes… evidently Grasshopper did not learn this lesson.
I love the NY Post’s coverage (though the reader comments are better).
lisa: How do you compete with a headline like “Hung Fu”?!
All I can think about is what my Great-Auntie Violet would’ve made of this. When I was a kid (and she was already in her 70’s) we’d be on standby to adjust her TV antenna Tuesday nights (this was in the UK), dare she miss an episode. And she kept a a magazine with an interview of DC; she was disapproving though because it included a picture of a topless Barbara Hershey (his then-main-squeeze) nursing their baby. !Escandalo!
lisa: It’s for the best that the worst Auntie Violet had to see was Barbara Hershey topless. What’s weird for me is how Barbara Hershey is now with Naveen Andrews/Sayid.
Apparently, Naveen did a Mary Kay Letourneau with his “Maths” teacher at 16 (perhaps predating MKL)
On a side note, my husband makes fun of my use of the word “Maths”, despite my reminding him of its (and my) cultural context.
I see now the Carradine family is floating out the conspiracy theories. This should guarantee a “True Hollywood Story” ep or several…
lisa: Ack, I hate “maths.” Well, hate is a strong word but it just doesn’t sound right to my ears. It’s as bad as the British use of sport without the S.
I just want to say I am new to blogging and site-building and really savored you’re web-site. Very likely I’m likely to bookmark your blog post . You definitely have good writings. Appreciate it for revealing your blog.
