Regular TigerHawk comment troll Christopher Chambers "knows that up in Heaven, Bruce Lee is whooping David Carradine's ASS!" That's a safe bet, I would say.
It would be beneath Bruce Lee to pick a fight with an amateur. And David Carradine would prefer to make love, not war. (Kwai Chang Caine avoided violence whenever he had another option.)
From the New York Times:
"'Kung Fu' made its debut as an ABC movie of the week in 1972, then ran as a series until 1975. And though Mr. Carradine was NOT PROFICIENT in the martial arts himself — he studied them later — the show was influential in the rise of American interest in them and in Eastern philosophy."
Hobbies plays a key role for the people who really came to the earth for this purpose, one or the other day people around the world would be discussing about the people who have collected Many World Coins,monuments, old stamps, old notes who will be positioned in the world of Guinness records.
So Carradine is up there with a rope tied around his weiner and his neck. I'm not on board with doing prostitutes, but dammit Jim ... he was in Thailand, where $100 gets you a lotta partying, and very low priced 'entertainment', and here he is doing a hyperventilation spank and finally snatched that pebbie from the Old man's hand? What a pathetic way to be found dead.
Context: Bruce pitched the idea for the series Kung Fu to Hollywood. Of course they appropriated it--and Hollywood promptly went about finding a way to shoe horn a white actor into the role. Allegory for how Hollywood isn't the liberal monolith you love to hate.
Bruce was not happy. And then, of course, he died. David's cast, and the rest is history...
PS Gary Rosen--was that a pithy comment from you? Glad you've graduated from dumb to pithy. LOL
