I have a hobby that's really wonderful because it helps me understand the meaning of one word with a sentence that reflects the words meaning and definition. These are called Buseyisms. I take these from my own heart, my own spirit and my own soul and make this interpretation so you can hear it and live by it. More on Buseyisms

What is a Buseyism?

“What is a Buseyism? I take the letters that spell a word to create a definition for the word in the truth of its deeper, dimensional meaning. I weave in my personal anecdotes along with my musings on how I live life successfully according to my experiences.

Who am I, a genius, a crazy madman, to give advice? This is not advice. I am sharing the life lessons I learned while surviving the ups and downs of almost 50 years in Hollywood, a near fatal motorcycle accident, a drug overdose, two divorces, bankruptcy and cancer in the middle of my face. I may turn concepts you usually believe in upside down with my bizarre stories, but that comes with the dinner.

These are my life lessons, my B.I.B.L.E.―Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth.”

―Gary Busey
