Why I ask.

Why is it that when I watched Kill Bill 2 with my roommates that no one besides I noted that Bill was played by David Carradine, ie. Caine from Kung Fu?

It also brings to note that I was also the only one to realize at one point when seeing a bassist play 'avante-garde' improvisational music before a Li Young Li poetry reading, that he had 'accidentally' played a portion of the Green Acres theme song.

I'm really not that up on pop culture...so what gives? I've never even SEEN Kung Fu...but I noted it, because I'm sure to Tarantino it was interesting/important.

i've never seen kung fu. which is funny, 'cause i was just thinking about a song where he talks about "walk 'round the world like caine from kung fu".

I was aware of the Carradine factoid, but I didn't see the need to vocalize it as I thought it was common knowledge.

i thought i mentioned it when we all watched Vol. 2 and i thought no one responded. [shrug] ehh.

just thinking about how a small portion of the green acres theme song could deflate a large amount of the pretention that would normally be found in avant-garde improvisational bass music warms my heart.
