I bought a tape recorder and some stuff and went to Eur

I bought a tape recorder and some stuff and went to Europe for three months when I was 18. The puppeteering was only there as a hobby. I wanted to be a journalist. When I was 19, and after I had spent about a year in college, Jim Henson asked me to come out and try puppeteering for awhile.

I think the biggest lesson that I take from ‘Avatar‘ on any set that I go to is just work ethic. Working with Jim Cameron, you’re used to working very, very long days and you’re very meticulous about details. He’s very, very picky about little details, little character-isms and things.
One Day‘ is definitely heartbreaking in a few ways, but one of the main ways is that my character and Jim Sturgess’s character are just people from two different worlds who love each other in so many ways and can’t quite seem to get it together.

I grew up on the crime stuff. Spillane, Chandler, Jim Thompson, and noir movies like Fuller, Orson Welles, Fritz Lang. When I first showed up in New York to write comics back in the late 1970s, I came with a bunch of crime stories but everybody just wanted men in tights.

During the Jim Crow era, we know that racially targeted and racially motivated voter suppression was often blatant. Legislators adapted overtly racist policies like literacy tests, and poll taxes in an effort to shape the electorate.
The Doors were successful. It was Jim Morrison as the centre and the figure and the spokesman, the figurehead, but we were all into the same thing. That’s why we were a band.

Jim, as just a spoken poet, was not that good. He needed the music behind him. He felt a security and a sense of abandon when the music existed around him.

I have always been a fan of Jim Henson, and I love his Creature Shop creations, the skill of the puppets and the characters he creates.

When I got to New York, I had no place to sleep. The pa

When I got to New York, I had no place to sleep. The pay from ‘Sesame Street‘ wasn’t enough to rent an apartment. I was staying on people’s couches. I stayed in the dressing room until they found out. I stayed with Jim Henson and his family for a week, and I wanted to do that permanently. I didn’t dare ask, though.
I knew since third grade I wanted to be Jim Carrey. His freedom, his goofiness, his crazy, loud, sudden energy. I told my family I was going to be a pediatrician, but in the back of my mind, I was like, ‘Nope, I’m going to be the biggest movie star ever.’
King Bach
My brother Jim and I shared a womb without a view for nine months.
I was real close with Jim Duggan and Jake Roberts. We all came out of Mid-South, so we all had that in common.

The South was very segregated. I mean, all through my childhood, long after Jim Crow was supposed to not be in existence, it was still a very segregated South.

Super Bowl V was the Colts against the Cowboys and Jim O’Brien kicked a 32 yard field goal to beat the Cowboys. I was traumatized by it. Everyone at school knew I was the only Cowboy fan in the area.

I wanted to be in Jim Carrey comedy movies before I met him. I wanted to be a comedian on Stage 19, yukking it up.

Jim Sheridan, the MP who wants to ban sketchwriters from the Commons for being rude about politicians, is a blithering idiot. Sorry, scrub that – clearly a very thoughtful person with whom I might conceivably disagree on some marginal issues. A blithering savant, perhaps.

I think the only thing that happened when I fought Jim Miller is that I was a just kid, he had way more experience. I was winning the fight, landing punches and trying to get 10 submissions at the same time, and Jim Miller went for one attack only, a kneebar, and got it. His experience made the difference.

One thing Jim McGreevey wants the world to know: Leading a double life as a gay man trying to appear straight was easy for him to pull off. He was ‘good’ at it. Not only that – it helped him become a better politician.
I know Jim Cornette says the reason that I’m successful now is because I changed my attitude, and I must be listening to what people tell me now, and I used to not listen to him. But the thing is, I used to not listen to him or question his methods because I didn’t agree with him, and I didn’t share his vision.
Profit‘ was an intriguing fellow that couldn’t be approached as a villain or a hero. The challenge in hanging a show on a character like Jim Profit was that we knew that we were in for a rough reception.
Even with the fact that I grew up in North Carolina, ‘Jim Rash‘ just screams ‘Southern boy.’
Young people and Indian people need to know that we exi

It was the biggest suppression of voting rights in our country’s history since Jim Crow. And the thread of race runs from the beginning to the end of my book.
I didn’t see Kirby Puckett as a Hall of Famer. I didn’t see Gary Carter as a Hall of Famer. I didn’t see Don Sutton as a Hall of Famer. I didn’t see Phil Niekro as a Hall of Famer. As much as I like Jim Rice, I’m not so sure he’s a Hall of Famer.
I once sat next to Jim from Wild Kingdom on a flight from Atlanta. I find mentioning that opens a lot of doors.
I am very proud of Jim Leiken. He has worked with me for six years and has been patient enough to learn the ropes. He’s now matured into a true chef and is working on building his team.
Jim Gaffigan is someone I’ve always been a fan of.
The Masters isn’t about Jim Nantz and his storytelling. It’s about golf’s greatest tournament.
He told me that Francis Crick and Jim Watson had solved the structure of DNA, so we decided to go across to Cambridge to see it. This was in April of 1953.
You know if we were to look back and how we were in 1955 living in Jim Crow, living in segregation, living in segregated schools, it’s hard to believe that it was America, but it really was.
One of the points in which I was especially interested was the Jim Crow regulations, that is, the system of separation of the races in street cars and railroad trains.
Ray Stannard Baker
The Doors are Ray, Robby, Jim and John.
When I look back at what I had to go through in black baseball, I can only marvel at the many black players who stuck it out for years in the Jim Crow leagues because they had nowhere else to go.
I basically look like a lot of modern Orthodox people you know, but I work on a TV show where I sometimes have to kiss Jim Parsons. That’s why I don’t take on the title of modern Orthodox, but in terms of ideology and theology I pretty much sound like a liberal modern Orthodox person.
Jim Henson was an absolute genius.
In a perfect world, you make a seamless transition from one great era to the next, but that rarely happens. I’ve studied these things: how do you go from the Aikman-Irvin-Smith Cowboys to the next era? I’m all for continuity. I wish we could have done it that way with Bill Polian, Jim Caldwell, Peyton.
A fatherless boy raised in Jim Crow Texas, my dad was a tenacious autodidact, the first in his family to get a college degree.
So here we are, just two months away from the election, with more and more examples that modern day Jim Crowe laws are alive and well in the state of Florida.
I would like to do comedy. I can be a bit of a Jim Carrey. I was always the class clown.
Jacqueline MacInnes Wood
There are comedians that I like. I think a lot of it, you just figure out on your own. It’s definitely one of those things that you get good at by doing it a lot. But I like Jim Gaffigan. Patton Oswalt. Janeane Garofalo.
Michael Showalter
I can’t tell you how many spot shows little Johnny Nitro, like, pulled the chair out in the arena in Shelbyville Fair and did a moonsault only to get chewed out by Rip Rogers and Jim Cornette about it. I mean, I did years of it.
I used to write letters to Jim McKay in college. ‘Wide World of Sports’ was this travelogue, really, that introduced us to sports and it introduced us to parts of the world that we had never seen before. And no one was a bigger tour guide than Mr. McKay.
My grandparents, Jim and Pat Moore, were an incredible couple. They drove me to the community theater, where I did plays as a kid.
The first time I saw Pearl Jam, I thought Eddie Vedder had seen too many Jim Morrison videos, and I didn’t like the music very much. But by the third album, I really liked them after all.
I think people think Jim Carrey’s just wild and crazy. He really is very disciplined. It is true of Eddie Murphy and Robin Williams as well.
Mike Leigh taught me about making choices – as an actor, you choose between being honest and clever, and with Mike, it’s always about being honest. I learned how to behave on a film set from Jim Broadbent. He was a great example of someone with a fantastic career who kept his feet on the ground.
Racism is not just slavery and Jim Crow. It is the daily violence that is enacted on our communities each and every day we live in this White supremacist society.
Even after Jim Crow was supposed to not be a part of the South anymore, there were still ways in which you couldn’t get away from it. And I think once I got to Brooklyn, there was this freedom we had.
I think that business book reporting, it’s all Jim Collins, it’s the story of victory; it’s success bias over and over again.
When Trump says, 'Make America great again,' he is refe

When Trump says, ‘Make America great again,’ he is referencing an era when people were singled out and harmed because of their race and religious beliefs, and when violent enforcement of Jim Crow masqueraded as the will of the people.
My father joined our party because the Democrats in Jim Crow Alabama of 1952 would not register him to vote. The Republicans did.
I don’t know, examination I guess. And then they put the jump suit back on me again. I went through the compound – I remember somebody shouting, Jim don’t let them break you.
I enjoyed my time at DC. Dan Didio, Geoff Johns and Jim Lee were great to me, and I’m very grateful for the opportunities they gave me. Having said that, I think it’s important to try new things and work with new people to keep myself fresh.
They did is sent me down Clearwater, Florida, and they said to me, Jessica, I need you to make Jim Bakker feel better.
In 1974, when I started working with the material that became ‘Horses,’ a lot of our great voices had died. We’d lost Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin, and people like Robert Kennedy, Martin Luther King and Malcolm X.
I’m in Ring of Honor about four years. I was cast as The Sicilian Psychopath there and right from the start one thing that felt weird where I got signed after a tryout because Jim Cornette saw me and ‘Delirious’ Hunter Johnston and they really liked my promo. The match was fine, but they really liked my promo.
Jim wanted to be known as a poet, first and foremost.
Ray Manzarek
I used to really like Method Man and Redman for some reason. And Fabolous. A lot of New York rappers, too. Cam’ron. Jim Jones. Hurricane Chris.
I used to go salmon fishing with the late Jim Slater, the renowned investor, and he would give me tips. He told me to buy shares in football clubs, so I invested in Manchester United before its shares went through the roof.
Jim Thorpe is someone I’ve always loved. He was an Olympic athlete, you know, and a football player from back in the day. I’d love to play him. And then there’s a guy called Iceman who was a top hit man for the mob. I would love to play him. Actually, it’s sort of in the works, so I hope it goes through.
Woody Harrelson played a long-term love interest of Debra Messing‘s; I think it was for a whole season. They almost cast Nick in that part. They almost had given to him. But at the eleventh hour, Jim Burrows put in a call to Woody, and he said he would do it.
All the girls over there in Ireland are well versed in American country music. Jim Reeves and Patsy Cline are like king and queen over there.
My dad, Jim, was 55 when I was born.
It is an honor to join my former colleague in Congress, Jim McCrery, and the very talented team at Capitol Counsel.
I’ve always been a big fan of Jim Neidhart.
Jim Rollins is the king of the weird science action genre.
The hardest achievement in acting – in my opinion, anyway – is nailing a role that absolutely nobody else could have played. Pacino owned Michael Corleone… but DeNiro could have owned it as well. Who else, though, but Val Kilmer could have nailed Jim Morrison? Does anyone besides Will Ferrell pull off Ron Burgundy?
Jim Cornette and I have never really seen eye-to-eye.
The Stones without Mick. The Police without Sting. The Doors without Jim. It doesn’t work.
I think Jim got screwed. I think Jim Bakker would have been a great preacher. Jim Bakker was very good at what he did.
The stupidest thing I ever did was turn down ‘Terms of Endearment’ to do ‘Cannonball Run II.’ Jim Brooks wrote the part of the astronaut for me. Taking that role would have been a way to get all the things I wanted.
I didn’t discover how music and film could work together until Jim Jarmusch had me do ‘Ghost Dog.’
We have about 4 million people who have voted for who they want to see in the Hall of Fame. There are some people they put down that are pretty good players. You have Ray Guy, Jim Plunkett, Lester Hayes and Donnie Shell.
Rest in peace, Harold Lederman. When I was younger, my brother and I used to imitate his famous ‘OK, Jim!’ line while watching the big ‘HBO Boxingevents. What an amazing character he was, and while I never met him, he seemed to be a lovely man.
Well, it was kind of accidental that Jim started playing with us, although it wasn’t sudden… we hadn’t really looked around to think who could be a fifth member.
When I was eight or nine years old, my older cousin took me to the St. George Theatre on Staten Island to see a Bruce Lee movie and a Jim Kelly movie. Those were my first martial-arts films, and I fell in love with the genre back then.
My mother liked Jim Reeves. I hated his records. He was unbearable.
Diane Abbott
I’m always dancing in my kitchen. And I love to sing. I’ve always sung. My father was a lovely singer. Always sang Jim Reeves at parties.
Historically, Hollywood comedy has arrived in skinny envelopes. From fence post Buster Keaton to herky-jerky Jerry Lewis to wiry nerve-bundle Woody Allen to hung-loose Richard Pryor to whippy contortionist Jim Carrey, its comics and clowns have tended to be sliced thin and bendable.
The extraordinary nature of individual black achievement in formerly white domain certainly does suggest that the old Jim Crow is dead, but it doesn’t necessarily mean the end of racial caste – if history is any guide, it may have just taken a different form.
Man, I'm the No. 1 living and breathing rock star. I am

Man, I’m the No. 1 living and breathing rock star. I am Axl Rose; I am Jim Morrison; I am Jimi Hendrix.
Did Robert De Niro actually look like Al Capone in ‘The Untouchables?’ Or did Van Kilmer look like Jim Morrison in ‘The Doors?’ No. It’s the core, the essence of the personality that matters.
I sent some scenes from ‘Life on Mars‘… and then I didn’t hear anything for about 48 hours, and I was sure that I wouldn’t get this. Then I got a phone call saying, ‘They want you to take the role of Jim Shannon on ‘Terra Nova,’ and would I be interested!
I adopted a motto: Never say no. Jim Morrison never said no, Kurt Cobain never said no. You couldn’t have great things to write about if all you did was sit in your living room with your roommates talking about the phone bill.
Our co-founder and company president, Jim Levy, came from a record industry background and understood the marketing and promotion of artists as well as products. So the video game business went from absolutely zero designer credit to something approaching rock star promotion.
David Crane
I had a really good time working with Jim Cameron. A lot of people didn’t, but I did as I got on with him really quite well. For a director who spends most of his time looking down a lens or in the digitisation studio or working out some graphics, he is actually very good with actors.
Bernard Hill
I love Jim and Pam at ‘The Office.’
I’m a sucker for movies about uncommon friendships: ‘Midnight Cowboy,’ ‘Harold and Maude,’ ‘Scarecrow,’ ‘The Last Detail,’ ‘Y Tu Mama Tambien,’ ‘Jules and Jim,’ ‘Rushmore,’ ‘Stand by Me.’
Filmmakers have to commit to making 3-D films properly like Jim Cameron did and not do cheap conversions at the tail end of the process.
I was focused as a writer and marketing and a character. I was like Jim Carrey.
I grew up watching those blaxploitation movies. Ron O’Neal, Richard Roundtree, Jim Brown, Pam Grier. For the first time, I saw ‘The Negro’ get one over on ‘The Man.’
I was trained in storytelling by Jim Shooter, Stan Lee, and Larry Hama. Doesn’t make me a genius, and there really isn’t anything fancy about the stage direction in my scripts.
