      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

the ghost of bruce lee getting his final revenge?

Yeah, but it wasn't Carradine's fault that Bruce Lee got passed over for the part of Caine. And Carradine played the part well, putting his stoner-zen-dopey stamp on the character. Besides, he was 72 years old... I hope I make it to 72.

On June 4, 2009, Carradine was found dead in his room at the Swissotel Nai Lert Park Hotel on Wireless Road, near Sukhumwit, in central Bangkok, Thailand.[2][3] The initial police report indicated that Carradine had committed suicide by hanging himself; he was found by a hotel maid sitting in a wardrobe with a cord around his neck and body.[3][4] Carradine was in Bangkok to shoot his latest movie, Stretch, but the film crew were aware of his absence when they went to dine out at a restaurant on June 3.[2]

Because Caine was one of my childhood heroes I will choose to believe that really what happened is there were a couple Thai hookers involved, something went wrong (hey he was old), and the girls got scared and left.

I think I'll wait and see if more facts come out before I draw any conclusions. Then I'm going to put the DVDs for the Kung Fu TV series back into my Netflix queue for a refresher viewing.

"Police Lt. Gen. Worapong Chewprecha told reporters that Carradine was found with a rope "tied around his penis and another rope around his neck."

 

"The two ropes were tied together," he said. "It is unclear whether he committed suicide or not or he died of suffocation or heart failure due to an orgasm."

 

"Carradine had flown to Thailand last week and began work on a film titled "Stretch" two days before his death..."

That's got to be painful for his family. Damn sad for sure. Police Lt. Chewbacka? Hmmmm.....I had to confirm I wasn't getting a leg pulled here, Chewbacka? I'm thinking Star Wars. A quick Google search shows of Chewbackas comments shows that maybe the 2 Thai hookers noted above may actually have been Angela Pearson and Greta X. They wrote this up in the scintillating book "Scream, My Darling, Scream!" and google, bless their hearts, scanned it to share with us all.
