Biography

Few German digital producers are as flexible as Steve Bug. Starting with a little residency in Ibiza in 1991, Insect enhanced his popularity and was asked to try out the prestigious Appreciate Parade afterwards that season. His profession in music creation came 2 yrs later using the discharge of Bride-to-be & Bridegroom in the Superstition label. Other produces on smaller brands implemented, and in 1996 he began his initial label, Raw Components. This label, nevertheless, will be short-lived, as Insect would draw the plug and begin up two brands — Texas holdem Level and Dessous — in 1998. Each label got its own visual at heart, with Texas holdem Flat focusing on edgy dancefloor tech-house produces and Dessous concentrating on deep home and downtempo noises. Insect would continue steadily to record singles for Texas holdem Smooth and Dessous and also other brands world-wide, and he silently established a status internationally for his DJ units in addition to his productions. It wasn’t lengthy until Texas holdem Flat would discover itself several even more sublabels to cope with — Audiomatique Recordings, B Series, and Visitors Signs all made an appearance next 12 months, while Bug’s status grew thanks a lot in no little component to collaborations with Richie Hawtin and Chicago tech-house maestro Common Element for his or her M-nus and Tactile imprints, respectively. Though he is constantly on the record prolifically, his last full-length discharge, Sensual, premiered on Texas holdem Level in 2002. His Da Minimal Funk group of mixes constantly set the typical for minimal DJ pieces and his latest combine, Bugnology, Vol. 2, premiered in Apr of 2006.

#Fact
1 On Friday, March 4, 2005, Buscemi was presented with the Distinguished Alumni Award as part of Valley Stream Central High School's 75th anniversary celebration.
2 He and Norm MacDonald voiced as gingerbread men for the famous AT&T Christmas commercial.
3 Best man at his friend Stanley Tucci's wedding to Felicity Blunt.
4 Good friends with actor Stanley Tucci.
5 Grew up in Valley Stream, New York, as did actors Edward Burns, James Martin Kelly, and Larry Miller.
6 Fractured his skull when he was hit by the bus when he was young. Some time later, he was hit by a car while chasing a ball which had rolled onto the street. He had cuts and bruises from this accident.
7 Grandmother had 5 children.
8 Went to a Catholic school.
9 Was born on a Friday the 13th.
10 Has three brothers.
11 His father, John, had hoped to be a television cameraman, but he ended up clearing garbage for the sanitation department. His mother, Dorothy, worked as a hostess in the Howard Johnson hotels.
12 Was member of the dramatic jury at the Sundance Film Festival in 2003.
13 Played a character in Desperado (1995) whose character's name was his own last name.
14 #21 on Tropopkin's Top 25 Most Intriguing People [Issue #100]
15 Was good enough to be a varsity wrestler (105 lb weight class) on the wrestling team in high school. He was also a soccer player, and was considered a "jock" rather than a scholar. Years later, while appearing on Late Night with Conan O'Brien (1993), Buscemi challenged Andy Richter to a wrestling match when he found out Richter was on his high school wrestling team also. Much to Buscemi's embarrassment, Richter won, although Richter pointed out that being six inches taller and at least one hundred pounds heavier than Buscemi might have given him an edge.
16 His character in Reservoir Dogs (1992) refuses to tip waitresses. He later made a cameo as a waiter in Pulp Fiction (1994).
17 In 2003, as part of a year-long tourist promotion at the Eastern State Penitentiary in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he narrated the facility's audio tour.
18 Despite Internet rumors, Buscemi never auditioned for the part of George Costanza on the long running US TV show "Seinfeld". He admitted on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon (Season 2 ep. 181) he had no idea how the rumor started, nor how to get it removed since he didn't understand how the Internet works.
19 The band "Blessid Union of Souls" makes a reference to him in their hit song, "Hey Leonardo". They refer to him as "That guy who played in Fargo (1996). I think his name is Steve."
20 In addition to his acting work, he has gained praise as a director, most notably for Trees Lounge (1996), Animal Factory (2000) and several episodes of The Sopranos (1999).
21 Is one of the most prolific of today's actors, often starring in about 5 films a year.
22 Frequently is typecast as sleazy or crazed characters, with his roles as Tommy in Trees Lounge (1996) and Seymour in Ghost World (2001) being the closest he has come to being the romantic lead.
23 He went through a variety of interesting jobs before hitting it big as a character actor. He worked as a bartender, drove an ice cream truck, attempted stand-up comedy, and (that which he is most proud of) was a professional firefighter (he continues to be a volunteer firefighter). He bombed so bad as a comic, that one night another comic, Paul Reiser, took his place. Years later, Buscemi made a guest appearance on Reiser's sitcom, Mad About You (1992), poking fun at the incident.
24 Bears such a strong resemblance to writer-director John Waters that as a joke, Waters sent out cards with a photo of Buscemi made up to look like Waters.
25 Showed up at his old firehouse the day after the World Trade Center tragedy in New York to volunteer. He worked twelve hour shifts for a week after the terrorist act, digging through rubble with his old comrades looking for missing firefighters, doing some anonymously. [September 2001]
26 On April 12, 2001, Buscemi was stabbed in the throat, head, and arm during a barroom brawl at the Firebelly Lounge in Wilmington, North Carolina. The brawl also involved Vince Vaughn, who was arrested for refusing to disperse when ordered to by police, and charged with misdemeanor assault. Buscemi suffered a deep cut to the face, leaving a noticeable scar on his cheek. Heavy make-up is used to hide it in movies.
27 Has been cast in six movies by Joel Coen and Ethan Coen ((Miller's Crossing (1990), The Hudsucker Proxy (1994), Barton Fink (1991), Fargo (1996), The Big Lebowski (1998), and Paris, je t'aime (2006)). This amounts to more appearances in Coen Brothers films than any other actor, exceeding by two films each Frances McDormand, John Turturro, and John Goodman. Buscemi's character died in three of those Coen Brothers films: Miller's Crossing (1990), Fargo (1996), and The Big Lebowski (1998).
28 One son, Lucian Buscemi, born in 1990.
29 Was a New York City fireman from 1980 to 1984, with Manhattan Engine Company #55 in the Little Italy section of New York City.
30 Brother of Michael Buscemi.
31 Graduated in 1975 from Valley Stream Central High School, Valley Stream, NY. After graduation, he attended Nassau Community College and then moved to Manhattan to study acting at the famed Lee Strasberg Institute.
32 Ranked #52 in Empire (UK) magazine's "The Top 100 Movie Stars of All Time" list. [October 1997]
33 His surname is pronounced "Buss-ehm-ee". He is of Sicilian/Italian ancestry on his father's side, and has Irish, English, and Dutch ancestry on his mother's side.

1 My favorite review described me as the cinematic equivalent of junk mail.
2 (2011, on his grossest on-screen death) On Tales from the Crypt (1989), I played a guy involved with an Agent Orange-y chemical. My body literally rots. They've got me in this prosthetic full-body rotting-guy suit, and then I get shot. They had me squibbed up with 12 to 15 little explosives. Those things sting! So now I'm rotting and shot to pieces.
3 (2011) I remember my son once asked me, "Did you ever, like, kiss in high school?" And I told him this long drawn-out story of how shy I was, how I finally got a girlfriend but she broke up with me because I was too shy to try to kiss her, and then I had another girlfriend but still couldn't figure out kissing. The technique was always a big obstacle in my head, like, How do you kiss? Where does your chin go? Forget about anything beyond kissing-first base was a total mystery to me. So I'm telling my son this long story, and he listens patiently until he finally realizes where I'm going with it, and he says, "Dad, no-did you like Kiss in high school? Kiss, the band!" And I was, "Oh yeah, Kiss...they were good."
4 (2011, on Trees Lounge (1996)) It was sort of my life. At 19, I was truly directionless, living with my parents. I was driving an ice-cream truck and working at a gas station. There's nothing wrong with those jobs - it's hard work. But my boss at the gas station was grooming me to be a mechanic, and that's not what I wanted. The drinking age was 18 then, so I spent every night hanging out with my friends in bars, drinking.
5 (On working on The Sopranos (1999)) I feel really privileged to have been a part of it and to have worked that closely with it, as a director and as an actor. And as an audience member, I'm still in awe of the show. For me, it never lost that sense of, 'Holy shit... this is fucking great'.
6 I admire any director who makes his living solely from directing. I'm fortunate enough to earn a decent wage by occasionally playing psychopaths in other people's movies, allowing me the luxury of not having to depend on the movies I direct to put food on the table. I especially admire independent directors like Tom DiCillo and Alexandre Rockwell, who never stop trying to create their own way.
7 The only thing I can compare the feeling of going onstage to is the fear you feel before going into a burning building. Once you go in there, the fear goes away and you're operating on adrenaline. And when it's over, if you've done well, it's something you've shared with these people you automatically feel close to.
8 When I get cast, I always flip to the end of the script to see if my character gets beaten up or killed. I really thought that after getting killed on The Sopranos (1999) I should not accept scripts where I die. I mean, there's nowhere to go after getting killed by Tony Soprano. But then I got offered this great part in The Island (2005). I didn't even make it a third of the way through the movie. I have been surviving a lot more lately, though.
9 I don't tend to think of these characters as losers [I play]. I like the struggles that people have, people who are feeling like they don't fit into society, because I still sort of feel that way.
10 As much as you tell yourself, 'We made the film and here it is and that is enough,' you would like to come away with something.
11 It's weird; I was not a really tough guy in high school, but I end up playing all of these psychopaths and criminals. I don't really care who they are, as long as they are complicated and going through something that I can understand and put across.
12 In the beginning, it wasn't even a question of deciding I'm going to do independent film and not commercial films -- I wasn't being offered any commercial films, and there wasn't an independent scene. I did a lot of "so-called" independent films that were really low-budget films trying to be commercial. But you certainly make choices when you have a script written by Jim Jarmusch or the Coen brothers or Alexandre Rockwell; I think any actor would feel lucky to be able to work on projects like that.
13 My favorite review described me as the cinematic equivalent of junk mail. I don't know what that means, but it sounds like a dig.
