Trapped in a State of Imaginary Grace



Random fanboy-related ramblings, flailings, musings, and other such mostly almost nonsensical and barely coherent mumblings.

Hold up for a second

All of these gifs are one man

The singular Buster Keaton

While filming the general

He snapped his neck on the railroad ties and went home and iced his body

And came back for work the next day

He once got his hip ripped out of its socket by a malfunctioning elevator and was disappointed with himself for being injured

He once had to fall 100 feet down a waterfall into a net

A stuntman tested it and broke both legs and dislocated his shoulder

Buster did the stunt anyway and landed without a scratch

In ‘the high dive’ Buster did a trick dive through a cardboard deck that was camouflaged to look like the real deck

Only he couldn’t tell from 100 feet up where the cardboard stopped and the real deck started and there was only like a three foot margin for error

And when he hesitated a sudden breeze literally knocked him off the diving board and he had to jump anyway

And he missed the real deck by less than a foot but he made it

In the second gif he’s recreating something that the actual general pursuers had to do in the civil war

If he misses that tie

The train will be derailed and he will die in the explosion

In the third gif an entire house is falling he has one take and if he has not done the calculations correctly he will be crushed

He has an inch-wide margin on each side

And the house literally brushes his left shoulder on the way down

You can see his left arm jump because he’s flinching from the pain

That last gif

He was supposed to make that jump

He was not supposed to fall and they hadnt planned for it

But he survived

Buster Keaton survived 100% of things that would have killed lesser men including wwi, tornados, housefires, alcoholism, broken nets, crushing depression, the depression itself, the mccarthy witchhunts, the end of silent cinema, and about 900 more of the stunts you see above

Buster lived to be 70 years old

Fathered like four kids and eight grandkids

He came out the other side of all that

Thinking that life was good and people were wonderful

Buster Keaton is not just a stuntman

He is a goddamn saint

Buster Keaton’s parents were part of a traveling show.

They were acrobats.

They took baby buster up high in the air with them.

They dropped him.

Luckily someone who was standing under them caught baby buster.

That man was Harry Houdini. 

Harry Houdini saved Buster Keaton’s life.

if you don’t think that’s the coolest shit you can get right out.

What are the signs of emotional abuse?
silverhakai silverhakai Said:

mental-health-advice:

Abusive Expectations - Makes impossible demands, requires constant attention, and constantly criticizes.

Aggressing - Name calling, accusing, blames, threatens or gives orders, and often disguised as a judgmental “I know best” or “helping” attitude.

Constant Chaos - Deliberately starts arguments with you or others. May treat you well in front of others, but changes when you’re alone.

Rejecting - Refusing to acknowledge a person’s value, worth or presence. Communicating that he or she is useless or inferior or devaluing his or her thoughts and feelings.

Denying - Denies personal needs (especially when need is greatest) with the intent of causing hurt or as punishment. Uses silent treatment as punishment. Denies certain events happened or things that were said. Denies your perceptions, memory and sanity by disallowing any viewpoints other than their own which causes self-doubt, confusion, and loss of self-esteem.

Degrading - Any behavior that diminishes the identity, worth or dignity of the person such as: name-calling, mocking, teasing, insulting, ridiculing,

Emotional Blackmail - Uses guilt, compassion, or fear to get what he or she wants.

Terrorizing - Inducing intense fear or terror in a person, by threats or coercion.

Invalidation - Attempts to distort your perception of the world by refusing to acknowledge your personal reality. Says that your emotions and perceptions aren’t real and shouldn’t be trusted.

Isolating - Reducing or restricting freedom and normal contact with others.

Corrupting - Convincing a person to accept and engage in illegal activities.

Exploiting - Using a person for advantage or profit.

Minimizing - A less extreme form of denial that trivializes something you’ve expressed as unimportant or inconsequential.

Unpredictable Responses - Gets angry and upset in a situation that would normally not warrant a response. You walk around on eggshells to avoid any unnecessary drama over innocent comments you make. Drastic mood swings and outbursts.

Gaslighting -A form of psychological abuse involving the manipulation of situations or events that cause a person to be confused or to doubt his perceptions and memories. Gaslighting causes victims to constantly second-guess themselves and wonder if they’re losing their minds.
