This Day in Buster…August 26, 1922
The Honolulu Star-Bulletin prints an intriguing quote from the human we know as Buster Keaton, “I don’t want to be just a shadow.  I’m human and I eat and sleep - my wife says I snore - and I cuss when I play golf.  I’m at least half human.  That’s the trouble with a lot of film-stars - they’re just shadows, sort of dreams of a person’s imagination.  I want to be real to the folks who come to see me on the screen.”

British newspaper, the Coventry Standard, erroneously advertises “Convict No. 13” - he’s not a number, he’s a free man!…wait…

Fan Tribute Friday.
And a Belated Appreciation:
With her Nefertiti looks and siren voice, Star Trek’s Lt. Uhura was cool, elegant, and diligent.
Watch this favorite scene, when she saws Evil Universe Sulu off at the knees.

This Day in Buster…August 7, 1927
The Sioux City Journal points out that Buster Keaton is among the latest Hollywood stars whose character has no proper name in his film - in “College” he is a Son.  In “Go West” perhaps he should have been nameless, not Friendless? ;)

MARLOWE MONDAY
From Raymond Chandler's Farewell,  My Lovely.  Private investigator Philip Marlowe has just visited a wealthy potential client:
“I went across the room and out, without looking back. The footman met me in the hall and gave me my hat, looking like the Great Stone Face.”
That Buster.  He's everywhere.

Sunday Sock Needle-Mania
(In which Busterverse rates sock needles)
A huge bunch of NoNami bamboo needles sizes 0-8, from fleabay:
Pros: Pointy, grippy.  Cons: Rough.  REALLY rough.  But whadaya want for needles that basically cost two cents each?
Brittany ( birch):
Pros: Light.  Cons: Kinda blunt.
Bryspun (plastic):
Pros: Pointy, grippy, comfy.  Cons:  A little TOO grippy.  Their circs catch on your yarn where the join is, making them a pain with grippier yarn like cotton.
Chiaogoo (metal):
Pros: Pointy, FAST (40” circs), no catch whatsoever between needle and cable. ❤️
Comfort Zone (plastic):
Pros: Pointy, flexy, SOFT.  Cons: Can't find 'em any more.
Knitter's Pride (Wood):
Pros: Fast, slick but grippy enough.  Cons: Smaller needles could be fragile.
Pony Pearl (Plastic):
Pros: Not too short or long, just grippy enough.  Cons: Can't find any more; blunter ends.
Prym (Metal/circs):
Pros: Lightweight.  Cons: REALLY blunt.
Susan Bates (Metal):
Pros: Find them anywhere.  Cons:  Shorter circs are bent and catch on your yarn.
Takumi (bamboo):  
Pros: Pointy, grippy.  Cons: er…thinking…
(This leaves out many NoNami vintage plastics I find at yard sales, but those are generally VERY nice.)
Photo shows my cotton sock, displaying  Brittany, Takumi, Comfort, and Yard Sale Special….oh, and yes, that is a crochet toe start,

Sok-tacular Saturday:
@keep-calm-and-carry-yarn 
Heel construction is driving me crazy.  It really wasn’t very far to go. 
Toes are not that big a problem.  Sometimes I start with a knitted toe.  Sometimes crocheted.  I decided I do not like all-crocheted socks.  Though I once saw a photo of Buster, wielding a crochet hook.  And he was knitting in a latterly short.
