15% are sold online
10% are sold in independents

David Carradine found dead

Oh no! I spend every Monday and Wednesday in a kung fu/kickboxing class, feeling all cool and deadly. I'm probably one of the few people in the class old enough to have memories of when actor David Carradine starresd in the 1970s TV series "Kung Fu." A news report says he hung himself in a Bangkok hotel room using a cord for the curtains.

Rest in peace, Grasshopper.
