Apparently my brain thought it was a maaarvellous idea to lean my wrist over a hob that had only just been turned off!
oh, girl. I been there. blech. blisters. take care of yourself, dearest! XOXO
From cinema star to (alleged) call girl.
this is amazingly cool. I can’t look away.
isn’t this the same hill Buster was photographed on? With the bulldog?
This little son of a bitch…Well, not this one specifically, but perhaps a relative.
I got lyme disease, apparently. Not from a decade of walking my dog in the woods, but from 9 months of avoiding the outdoors like the plague. How. THE. Fuck. Did this happen? I have no clue. Just thankful I got it check out in time, courtesy of my astute and health minded friend Tamara. So, now I’m on gut churning antibiotics for the next 21 days. I want to vomit AND shit my pants all at the same time. Sexy, right? Oh, and I’m on yeast infection watch, too, because of the meds, so tack that right on to the sexy list of sexy things that I am now.
This all makes me more surly than usual, so brace yourselves for my high gear bitchiness. I am admittedly a full fledged cunt these days. And I make no apologies about it. This is your warning.
Since I’m so fucking tired all the time now, I may be re-starting the FABKFF in my living room this very weekend. I don’t know where I left off last time, so why don’t we start over again, shall we?
Suggestions are appreciated, but may be met with bitchy, cunty responses for no good reason. :)
Closed minded people are the LOVELIEST a-holes, aren’t they? You know, if I judged every movie I saw by the trailer, I would have written off Tangled (2010) as a Shrek wannabe. When I saw the trailer for Hugo I had NO interest until I actually read what it was about. The trailer did it no…
APPLAUSE!!!! Good for you! Fuck them. Fuck them right in the ear.
Howdy tumblr! I’ve been neglecting the old Busterblog for a while – but not for lack of Bustering! In fact, he’s pretty much become my full time job nowadays. Between Damfino duties, the Busterfiles archive project and a heavenly 2-week trip to California with a gaggle of fellow Busterbloggers to do some hardcore research (and a LOT of Busterly sightseeing), I’ve been busy as a one-armed paperhanger!
One of the highlights of our recent CA trip was the screening of Keaton’s newly restored “The General” at Grauman’s Chinese Theater. Another “General” restoration, you say? I admit I was thinking the same thing – as I didn’t think anything could improve on KINO’s Blu-Ray version. HOLY SHEEP, was I wrong!!! In cooperation with the Library of Congress, the Cohen Film Collection has gone back to the camera negative and produced a 4K-scanned restoration so clear and bright – it’s like watching reality instead of a film! You can literally see each and every strand of Johnnie Gray’s hair blowing in the breeze, and the effect of light glinting on shiny surfaces (like swords and trains) are almost like watching real sunlight reflecting off the screen. The exploding rockets in the battle scene looked so real, it was as if someone was flashing strobes on the backside of the screen as well. The contrast was gorgeous and the clarity incredible. If this version tours a theater in your area – GO SEE IT! It’s probably the closest thing you’ll ever get to seeing actual a projection of pristine nitrate film.
Everything has a downside, and I’d have to say that the Alloy Orchestra’s score was the bummer of the event. I know they have quite a following, but IMO their adaptation did nothing but add some rather annoying sound effects – and those were inconsistent with the film. I love “choo-choo” rhythms, but playing the same theme throughout the entire train segment of the films got on my nerves after a while. I was expecting a tremendous crash/boom/bang to occur during the train crash scene, but their take was surprisingly low-key compared to some of their other over-the-top audibles. You just can’t beat Carl Davis’ score for “The General” – and while nothing could dampen my excitement at seeing my favorite film on the big screen at Grauman’s – Alloy certainly didn’t do anything to add to the experience.
Lots more going on in Busterville, gang – I’ll try to update more often and keep you on top of things!

I love you, Busterness. <3
I LOVE how the people on the board I go on a re judging the new Great Gatsby as crap without the intention of actually seeing it. I usually get along with these people but that’s just—- ugh.
Films rarely do a book justice, so it’s to be expected. But you have to see it to…
Well, now the people on the board are saying “I’m too young to understand” because I think they shouldn’t judge the movie by the trailer alone. Good— pull the “I’m older than you” card. REALLY helps your argument.
As someone older than you, let me tell you what that means. It means: you’re right. :)
They just don’t want to admit it to someone ‘younger.’ And they are smug.
nitrateglow asked: Something like Legend (1985) or Labyrinth with Bowie's package--- I mean, David Bowie.
Okay, I got ya. Labryinth is the SHIT! Saw that in the movie theater (because I am old) and I love love loved it! Dark Crystal, Willow, The Princess Bride, Dragonslayer, The Neverending Story, Clash of the Titans, The motherfucking Secret of NIMH…all of it! Loved all it! I never saw Legend, actually, and I have never been a Tom Cruise fan. Even before he went all batshit crazy. But my mother was always a huge sci fi fantasy fan, so she loved taking us to those movies or watching them with us on cable. I will still watch Secret of NIMH if I’m home sick. STILL!
