I can't think of much I've seen him in aside from The Long Riders, but that's still sad news.

Just an old friend.

He was in Boxcar Bertha, The Long Riders, Death Race 2000, Bound for Glory, The Serpent's Egg, Kill Bill, the Kung Fu TV series, etc. He was sort of flying under radar; known face but never really got the chance to do something big, totally disappeared in the 80s until Tarantino reinvented him for Kill Bill. Can't say I was his biggest fan but thought he can act.

He was great in TLR.



Hanged himself? That's sad whatever one does for living.

Well, the hanging could have been to get an erection, and then he blew it. It's happened before.

Grogs, how can you forget Kill Bill 2? And I certainly enjoyed seeing him in Crank 2. Guess he won't be showing up in Crank 3 . . .

I think it was auto-erotic asphyxiation.

I don't know if I trust this site but:

Well, yeah. The lack of oxygen produces a more powerful erection.

Wikipedia has an article on just this topic, with a list of famous tossers-who-took-it-too-far:

Quote
Famous cases

The composer Frantisek Kotzwara died from erotic asphyxiation in 1791, probably the first recorded case.

Sada Abe killed her lover, Kichizo Ishida, through erotic asphyxiation in 1936, proceeding to cut off his testicles and carry them in her handbag for a number of days. The case caused a sensation in 1930s Japan and has remained one of the most famous Japanese murder cases of all time.

Stage and screen actor Albert Dekker was found in 1968 with his body graffitized and a noose around his neck in his bathroom.

The artist Vaughn Bodé died from this cause in 1975.

The death in 1994 of Stephen Milligan, the British Conservative MP for Eastleigh, was a case of autoerotic asphyxiation combined with self-bondage.[22]

Kevin Gilbert, a songwriter, musician, composer, producer and collaborator died of apparent autoerotic asphyxiation in 1996.[23]

Michael Hutchence, lead singer of INXS is rumored to have died from auto-erotic asphyxiation in 1997, although suicide was the official cause of death.[24]

A more recent case is the death in 2004 of the British National Front party member Kristian Etchells.[25]

On March 28, 2007, the New York Times had a front-page story on a teenager who had suffered a heart attack and spent three days in a coma after hanging himself for a "rush".[26], in what appeared to be an instance of a choking game.

Herceg v. Hustler. Diane Herceg sued Hustler Magazine for the death of her 14 year old son, Troy D., who had experimented with autoerotic asphyxia after reading about it in that publication. [27]

In 2009, a coroner ruled that English stand-up comedian Martin Cassidy died from asphyxia due to breathing laughing gas while watching pornography on his laptop computer.[28]

Also in 2009, the BBC reported that David Carradine was found dead in a Bangkok hotel room. The BBC reported that "Thai police told the BBC the 72-year-old was found naked by a hotel maid in a wardrobe with a cord around his neck and genitals." The article was later updated to read "with a cord around his neck and other parts of his body." [29]

The story of Albert Dekker's (Harrigan the railroad detective in The Wild Bunch) death is quite bizarre. From his Wikipedia page:

Quote
On May 5, 1968, Dekker was found dead in his Hollywood home by his fiancée Geraldine Saunders after failing to answer numerous phone calls for two days. He was found naked, kneeling in his bathtub with a noose wrapped around his neck that was looped around the shower's curtain rod. He was also handcuffed, blindfolded, and had sexually explicit words scrawled on his body in red lipstick. There were no signs of forced entry, but money and camera equipment were missing from Dekker's home.

He was interred at Garden State Crematory in North Bergen, New Jersey.

Despite many theories, including reports that Dekker was a closet homosexual and was accidentally killed by a male hustler, his death was ruled accidental. The coroner theorized that Dekker had engaged in autoerotic asphyxiation and accidentally killed himself. Dekker's friends denied that he was a homosexual and insisted he wasn't known to participate in such acts.
There was an article I read somewhere that went into great detail about his death but I can't remember what site it was on.

So that's what happened to Cheech Wizard.

You never knew? Man, that case was famous back in the day. That's when I first heard about this dangerous practice.

Damn, sucks that Carradine's dead, but that is a hilariously good way to die.

I was just confirming your original post. I am unfortunately aware of this practice, a teen from my neighborhood died from it when I was very young, which I heard about much later. I don't know how anyone can risk their life for a larger erection, just doesn't make any sense to me.
