2014 Buster Keaton Convention →

FROM THE DAMFINOS: VERY IMPORTANT CONVENTION ANNOUNCEMENT!

It has come to our attention that some people planning to attend this year’s convention (Oct. 2-4, 2014) may have had difficulty making hotel reservations at the Shoreline Inn in Muskegon. Because of another event, the Shoreline is now fully booked for Wednesday and Thursday, Oct. 1 & 2. Unless you’re planning to come ONLY for Friday and Saturday (although we rather hope you’ll be attending the entire convention), you’ll need to register at the Holiday Inn just down the road from the Shoreline. Our group rate there is the same as the Shoreline’s, and the hotel is within easy walking distance of most of our venues.

When you register, be sure to tell them you are with the BUSTER KEATON GROUP in order to get the special rate. The deadline for getting the group rate is September 1, 2014. To register: Call 231-722-0100 or go online at http://www.ihg.com/holidayinn/hotels/us/en/muskegon/mkgth/hoteldetail

We apologize for any difficulties you might have had making a reservation at the Shoreline. Both hotels are eagerly looking forward to our visit. The Holiday Inn is expecting you, and we can’t wait to see you at this year’s convention in October.

Hullo, my darlin’ tumblr peeps!  I’m sooooo very sorry I haven’t been around as much as I’d like to lately, but helping to helm the Damfinos and promote Buster Keaton’s legacy takes a bunch of time, y’know?  As you’ve probably gathered, we’ve made a major find lately - an entire cache of lost photos and negatives taken behind the scenes of the making of The General in 1926.  
Y’know, tumblr, without you - this monumental silent film find would NOT have happened!  Once upon a time, a couple of us got together via tumblr and discovered that we had a shared interest - Buster Keaton. We got together and met in person. That simple post led to a life long friendship and a commitment to bring you all the undiscovered Buster info we could find! 
Here’s where it starts, folks.  Via tumblr, we found stuff.  You can too!!  Wanna know how?  Just ask!  BTW - I love all y’alls.  (I’m from Texas - and that’s how we say it).  —SB

Awesome!

There are other treasures out there just waiting to be discovered.

Darlin, tumblr-ers:  we’ve just made an amazing discovery of photos and nitrate negatives of behind-the-scenes shots of Buster’s THE GENERAL.  The photos and negatives were taken by a local photog in Cottage Grove, Oregon, and have remained hidden for all these years until recently discovered.  Help us celebrate this amazing find, and learn how YOU, TOO can find lost silent-film treasures!  See https://www.facebook.com/BusterKeatonSociety?ref_type=bookmark
Luy y’all.  Srsly.  You can find this stuff, too!
