Jimmy Buster for Statesville Chronicles Home Page
Jimmy Rogers learning to play guitar as Buster listens attentively.

Jimmy is gifted with a keen sense of hearing. He became exceptionally good with the guitar very quickly by listening to the radio. He wrote “Can’t Stop It”, his first song and the title to episode one in the Jimmy Rogers Chronicles out of a strong sense music was his calling.

It was Jimmy’s accentuated hearing abilities that led to the rescue of Buster. That same day Jimmy’s Father Red screamed at Jimmy “How many times have I told you. There is no God. That's just a fool's fairy-tale.”

This emotional scene in the movie finds Jimmy and family dog “Blue” running in the woods coming upon a wild Bobcat tearing at a crow. Jimmy climbed the tree, found Buster alone and took him home.

Red built Buster a home. Like a doghouse only smaller. It had a round hole big enough for Buster to come and go, but not large enough for the fox to reach in and grab Buster.

Buster was Jimmy’s constant companion. Buster even followed Jimmy to school most days and was there to greet Jimmy when the school day ended. Buster would fly along with Jimmy as he peddled his bike to his part time job at the Langford factory.

“Can’t Stop It” the movie is based on actual events. Shooting begins in North Carolina in the spring of 2026. If you would like to be considered for one of the fifty roles in the movie, work behind the cameras, or provide a product or service to the production company please tell us here.

As a senior in High School, James Rogers is in a battle to break from his father Red Rogers’ long held belief, “life is a cruel joke, barely worth living”.

If Jimmy loses this battle, he will take his own life and the mystery behind the death of his best friend David Perkins and David’s girlfriend Cathy Carlson will go unsolved. What will Jimmy do?

You’ll have to see the movie.

The story is told in present time by Aaron Rizzer (a/k/a Professor Remember). As the founder of Professor Remembers Roadhouse & Bakery Cafe calls on North Carolina business associates he hears Jimmy’s songs on the radio. Listening causes, the Professor to recall events he witnessed when Jimmy joined his cousin David’s band, The Rhythm Kings. The “Kings” practiced and performed at  Professor Remembers Roadhouse & Bakery Café.

Following the opening scene, as the credits roll, we hear Jimmy singing The Saturday & Sunday Blues. One of forty-four original songs punctuating events in this coming of age/murder mystery.

This song was written out of the anguish one feels when he believes he has lost everything.  And that’s exactly how teenager Jimmy Rogers felt when he found his girlfriend Marie Scappelli in the arms of another.

He witnessed this right after hearing of the death of David and Cathy, followed by news that the Langford Factory where Jimmy worked after school had burned to the ground.

Was his father, right? Is “life a cruel joke, barely worth living?

You guessed it, you have to see the movie.

Jimmy is wrestling with life’s paramount decision. Whether to live life with a sense of hope and optimism or to live life void of hope and purpose, one filled with tragedy and despair.

Up to this point Jimmy has tried to walk the line between his mother Esther Rogers‘ view and his father Red’s dim outlook on life. Which path will Jimmy choose?

See the movie.
