Voodoo Brawler & Buster Keaton


I wish that Elvis impersonation gig wasn't just to humiliate myself at a hotel in Spain for swedes. However it gave me a few ideas for what I'll be doing this year.

Buster Keaton

I borrowed this huge book from the library full of images and stories.
In it is this picture of Buster filming a stunt falling from the roof off a 8(or more) story building.
This being the olden days he actually lept from the rooftop, having rigged small pieces of cloth intimately along the wall downwards to break the speed of the fall. And he actually landed through these cloths and grabbed onto the drainpipe to stop the fall.
This, Seems like crazy fun to me! There's something about surviving things and feeling strangely accepted as a living being for your struggle haha.
