The Second Annual Buster Keaton Blogathon

Day two of our ‘thon has begun! The posts are still coming in, so be sure to take a look at what’s new!

Welcome back, my friends, to the second year of our Buster Keaton celebration! Once again we’re paying tribute to one of our greatest cinematic artists–someone who was not only a skilled filmmaker, but a master comedian whose ability to make people laugh has been proven timeless.

Don’t forget that on the 9th I’ll be holding a drawing for all participants, the winner receiving both a $25 gift certificate to Buster Stuff and an opportunity to have their piece published in The Keaton Chronicle!

  2. Hi, Lea. I’m looking forward to reading all the entries over the next week or so. However, mine is unfortunately a no-show. I’ve posted a brief explanation on my blog. Part One of the article, written for last year’s event, is still available to those who have yet to read it.

    • So sorry to hear that “real life” has gotten in the way, Marty, I definitely understand. Your post last year was fascinating (and detailed), so I really hope you can make it to next year’s event!
