Now there are thoughts it was an autoerotic asphyxiation accident. TMI.

What's really creepy is that I turned on the show I recorded last night to see him starring in a TV show(Mental) airing this week. They didn't mention his name, but it's him.
I believe it's time for mankind to set aside the crutch of religion and embrace morality born of reason and truth. Those crutches have long since proven treacherous when the ground gets slippery.

If it was autoerotic asphyxiation, how did he tie his own hands? My girlfriend read somewhere a theory (which seems likely to us) that there was one o' them Thai prostitutes involved, who likely fled the scene when things went wrong.

Nothing I've read said his hands were tied.

I didn't read it anywhere, but my girlfriend said she read it on Yahoo. I thought she read it in the Boston Herald as she was reading about the death when she told me, but she just said it wasn't there. We can't find the actual article she read, but looking for articles now, I find that TMZ reports the same thing (http://www.tmz.com/2009/06/05/carradine ... were-tied/), and so does RadarOnline (http://www.radaronline.com/exclusives/2 ... y-outraged). The Huffington Post quotes the RadarOnline article here: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2009/06/0 ... 12201.html

Not the best sources, I know. I thought it was in the Boston Herald, which, while horribly sensationalist and right-slanted, at least usually doesn't make stuff up outright. Usually.

I guess we'll find out in the days and weeks to come.

I completely missed it, what with all the Carradine stuff, but KoKo Taylor died last Wednesday.

The Labour Party's pretty near death...hand them some Thai prostitutes, they might as well go out with a Bangkok.

Aw Goddamnit. David Eddings died.

I can't tell you how many times I've read the Belgariad.

That sucks. :cry:

J G Ballard died a couple of months ago as well...it's been a bad year for losing authors.

I watched an episode of Weeds last night where it looks like Kevin Nealon is about to hang himself. They did a whole joke making it look just like the scene in Shawshank Redemption where Brooks hangs himself. He does this whole letter writing monologue about how bad his life is ("the world went and got itself in a big damn hurry"). He attaches the noose, stands on a chair, puts it around his neck, and as the camera begins to pan out wider he starts wacking it. Funny as hell!

"How is it that hardly any major religion has looked at science and concluded, 'This is better than we thought! The Universe is much bigger than our prophets said, grander, more subtle, more elegant. God must be even greater than we dreamed'? Instead they say, 'No, no, no! My god is a little god, and I want him to stay that way.'" - Carl Sagan
