David Carradine RIP

Go easy, Cane - I dug up my prized Kung Fu lunchbox you know, to reminisce.

I'm still haunted by one of his Grasshopper flashbacks. The blind monk made him walk a tightrope over a pool of churning acid, and over the skeletons of his 2 older bothers who failed the test.

Carradine came form an acting family, and was especially good as Cole Younger alongside 2 brothers (playing Jim & Bob Younger; Jesse James' right hand men) in the 1980 sleeper, The Long Riders. He hung with Gene Clark of the Byrds.
