Sing along with me....
One Night in Bangkok (from Chess)

Bangkok, Oriental setting
And the city don't know that the city is getting
The creme de la creme of the chess world in a
Show with everything but Yul Brynner

Time flies -- doesn't seem a minute
Since the Tirolean spa had the chess boys in it
All change -- don't you know that when you
Play at this level there's no ordinary venue

It's Iceland -- or the Philippines -- or Hastings -- or --
or this place!

[COMPANY]
One night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster
The bars are temples but the pearls ain't free
You'll find a god in every golden cloister
And if you're lucky then the god's a she
I can feel an angel sliding up to me

[THE AMERICAN]
One town's very like another
When your head's down over your pieces, brother

[COMPANY]
It's a drag, it's a bore, it's really such a pity
To be looking at the board, not looking at the city

[THE AMERICAN]
Whaddya mean? Ya seen one crowded, polluted, stinking town --

[COMPANY]
Tea, girls, warm, sweet
Some are set up in the Somerset Maugham suite

[THE AMERICAN]
Get Thai'd! You're talking to a tourist
Whose every move's among the purest
I get my kicks above the waistline, sunshine

[COMPANY]
One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble
Not much between despair and ecstasy
One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
Can't be too careful with your company
I can feel the devil walking next to me

[THE AMERICAN]
Siam's gonna be the witness
To the ultimate test of cerebral fitness
This grips me more than would a
Muddy old river or reclining Buddha

And thank God I'm only watching the game -- controlling it --

I don't see you guys rating
The kind of mate I'm contemplating
I'd let you watch, I would invite you
But the queens we use would not excite you

So you better go back to your bars, your temples, your massage
parlours --

[COMPANY]
One night in Bangkok and the world's your oyster
The bars are temples but the pearls ain't free
You'll find a god in every golden cloister
A little flesh, a little history
I can feel an angel sliding up to me

One night in Bangkok makes a hard man humble
Not much between despair and ecstasy
One night in Bangkok and the tough guys tumble
Can't be too careful with your company
I can feel the devil walking next to me

Really sad. He was a damned good actor.

rufus-t-firefly: PYROY: God, do I have to do everything around here?

No...it's just that no one thought your original post was funny or creative enough to warrant comment.


Be nice, it's a better way to be.

I always wondered how he got the gig playing Woody Guthrie. Then I read that he showed up at the audition with his guitar and blew everyone away. Movie still sucked, though.

Timmy the Tumor:

How 'bout this...let's wait to slam each other until we find out if he committed suicide or it was an "oops" during a sex act?

Hmmmm... he's trying to be reasonable... IT'S A TRAP!

Suck it, frenemy!

I wish they'd re-shoot the Kung-Fu series.

I nominate Robin Shou!

Thanks. Great flick. RIP Grasshopper :-/

/anyone make a Kill Bill joke/reference yet??


One or two. Maybe four.

BlorfMaster: At what point do you lounge around your luxory hotel and decide you are better off hanging yourself?

Any rich actor thinking of offing themselves should be assigned to live in a trailer and work some crap job for a year. That will set them right quickly.




Read some of his history, he was picking prunes for a year to live...

Most actors have crap jobs before they make it.

starfirebrightly: So, here I am, sitting in this little room of mine, I had a serious issue with George Carlin, dying, while I was sitting in this little damn room, I've had serious issues with several other people, dying, while I was sitting in this little damn room. Even John Travoltas son, that was a biggie, now this, fark you losers, fark you. Just fark you.

Maybe you should put the computer down and leave your house once in a while.

SuperNinjaToad: Why is it so easy to confuse David Carradine with David Caruso and vice versa?
I mean sure the initials are the same but other than that nothing really similar.. any1 care to shed some light?


I don't know but that's the first person I thought of when I read the headline. I was like, "Huh I wonder what's going to happen to CSI."

Pascal's Bookie: This headline's not funny at all!

And there was so much scope too!

Kill Bill sucked.

/Though that wasn't Carradine's fault.

That was my thought as well... remake Kung Fu with an Asian guy? That's ridiculous.

You and starfirebrigthly should get together and compare notes.

img1.fark.net goes to the modmins that greenlit this one. While not a TF'er I know there had to be better headlines then this while still being tasteful (if that's what they where worried about).

Kind of think it's not supposed to be.

That Carradine is dead and Caruso is still wasting oxygen is a great injustice.
 
2009-06-04 12:04:20 PM  
So, has anyone made any "Kill Bill" references yet?

Is it possible to pick prunes?

Has anyone done a "One Night in Bangkok" riff yet? How about a Bill reference, or Grasshopper?
 
2009-06-04 12:05:39 PM  
meh.

he hung himself...

toodles.

I imagine so, but you probably wouldn't want to eat them.

He is now going to Kung-Fu heaven where Bruce Lee is going to give him an eternal ass-kicking for stealing the Kung-Fu show role from him.

However he died, I'm sure it was on his terms.

Goodbye, David.

what howling over the body of a fallen comrade may look like

if you look at the history of dead celebrities.. the ones who are "well-respected and liked" always get actual respectable headlines when they die.

There are just some people that deserve real dignity.

They did, it starred Lorenzo Lamas.
 
2009-06-04 12:07:33 PM  
I have all 3 seasons of Kung-Fu on DVD.

I will miss him.

Hung-Fu for the WIN!

Well at least now their will be a surplus in the world supply, so we will have some breathing room.

I picked an old one and married her

I wonder if people who die from autoerotic asphyxiation, and it doesn't seem that uncommon for practitioners, know the point where they went too far.

72 years old and still getting his freak on. Good night, Mr. Horny Man.

Billy Ligue: you have been on a role!

This is really sad noose.
 
2009-06-04 12:09:34 PM  
Alright, pardon my naivete, but did he hang himself or go out via the auto-asphyxiation rout or what? WTF?

/needs to hang out on 4chan more
 
2009-06-04 12:10:02 PM  
mgbeach: Timmy the Tumor: It's got to be auto erotic asphyxiation.

The guy had a stack of movies in the works, so his career was in full swing--not likely that he committed suicide over conventional depression.



So, you don't know anything about depression? K, got it.


No but the billion dollar a year Pharmaceutical and mental health industries do, just ask your doctor about...prozac, cymbalta, blah blah blah.

Depression or not, it is most likely autoerotic asphyxiation.

I will miss his silly puns on "wild west tech" on the History Channel. When waking up at 5am to your newborn crying on the weekends, your mood starts to suck...he always made my mood better with that show. Not to mention Kill Bill and Kung Fu.

RIP Grasshopper.

I remember volunteering to help at an event where he was supposed to show up for a 1pm autograph session in 1995 at a Toronto convention near the airport.

After getting yelled at by a couple of older/cranky attendees like it was my fault he wasn't there (I had nothing to do with scheduling or anything related other than showing people where the line-ups were) David was escorted to the signing table by a woman slightly younger woman at least 20 minutes late for a 90 minute session. He got up and left less than 30 minutes on his late arrival stunning his fans who did the logical thing, resumed biatching out the the volunteers running the show, not Mr. Carradine for showing up drunk and in no shape to perform his contracted duties.

Truth is he went out drinking the night before and on the grounds for reasonable entry to his hotel room to check on his well-being he was passed out on the floor and the door hit him as it opened. Security helped him get cleaned up and arrive, but obviously it was a wasted effort. I understand he had his issues and I
m as understanding as the next guy, but he had almost 15 years to apologize or even attempt to make amends for his actions.

All said I feel bad for his friends, family, and fans, but I won't shed a tear and frankly will laugh at the works provided @ http://community.livejournal.com/omg_too_soon/ (new window)

I do not wish to fight with you. We should seek to blend our energies and find comfort in the peace of the world.


If not, you can go f*ck a syphilitic goat.

RIP Grasshopper. You are missed.

Redneck kung fu master will dedicate a can of PBR in his honor tonight.
