The [chat] About Sad Silent Types Wearing Porkpie Hats

KanaKana Registered User regular
This is Buster Keaton, possibly the greatest and most innovative American action director of all time
337-buster_keaton.jpg
Joseph Frank "Buster" Keaton (October 4, 1895 – February 1, 1966) was an American comic actor, filmmaker, producer and writer.[1] He was best known for his silent films, in which his trademark was physical comedy with a consistently stoic, deadpan expression, earning him the nickname "The Great Stone Face".[2]

Buster Keaton (his lifelong stage name) was recognized as the seventh-greatest director of all time by Entertainment Weekly.[3] In 1999, the American Film Institute ranked Keaton the 21st-greatest male star of all time. Critic Roger Ebert wrote of Keaton's "extraordinary period from 1920 to 1929, [when] he worked without interruption on a series of films that make him, arguably, the greatest actor-director in the history of the movies."[2] His career declined afterward with a dispiriting loss of his artistic independence when he hired on to MGM which fueled a crippling alcoholism that ruined his family life.[citation needed] However, he later recovered in the 1940s, remarried and successfully revived his career to a degree as an honored comic performer for the rest of his life, earning plaudits like an Academy Honorary Award in 1958.

Orson Welles stated that Keaton's The General is "the greatest comedy ever made, the greatest Civil War film ever made, and perhaps the greatest film ever made."


A trap is for fish: when you've got the fish, you can forget the trap. A snare is for rabbits: when you've got the rabbit, you can forget the snare. Words are for meaning: when you've got the meaning, you can forget the words.

    Also @simonwolf

    I have a really long post control + c'd that I was going to address to you

    But it would probably do better as a PM

    But I might not even send it, because I already don't like parts of it - I'm not always a great writer.

    But the point is, I care about you, dude.

    They almost revisited that with Ben in season 5, but Giles took care of him to spare Buffy from having to kill a human.

    But in my opinion, there was another cop out there. Ben was an innocent, likable guy until he agreed to kidnap Dawn (knowing that she would be killed) to save his own life. That made it ok for him to be killed, because he made an evil decision.

    Ben didn't just put his life ahead of one person. He knew that the entire world was going to be swallowed up into a hell dimension, and he didn't care. His self-preservation wasn't the worst sort of evil, but it was hardly morally neutral. And he shared an existence with Glory.
    And I really, really wanted Glory to die.

    But what if he hadn't done those things that lead to Glory's almost-victory? What if he was just afraid to die, and tried to run away, but was caught? I think that would have been a much more ambiguous decision on the part of Buffy or Giles. The audience might not have sided with what had to be done as strongly.

    Heard about this on conservative radio:

    http://www.eonline.com/news/381897/american-idol-racist-booted-contestants-submit-complaint-may-lead-to-a-lawsuit
    nine erstwhile Idol hopefuls are claiming a complaint filed against the show [American Idol] alleging that racism played a role in their ouster in an attempt to juice up ratings ... The jilted contestants allege, per published reports, that the show zeroed in on black contestants with arrest records in order to publicly expose them in an effort to boost ratings.

    So the losers are mad and have rallied, hired a lawyer, and are positioning themselves to receive a settlement in the future. I haven't counted but there have been at least some black Idol winners. I remember watching the show back when Ruben Studdard beat Clay Aiken.

    Dammit, I can't find the clip on youtube!

    But the rest of you non-Buffy watchers, picture this. Buffy has a giant Thor-like hammer, and is repeatedly bashing in Glory's face with it, occasionally making quips such as "and my arm's not even tired yet!"
