Things work well when a group of people know each other, and things break down when it’s a bunch of random people interacting.
‘Instagram‘ doesn’t exist in a vacuum. We’re not a bunch of siloed individuals.

If I was a little bit younger I would worry more. I’d want to do one thing at a time but now I try to do a bunch of different things at a time if I can.
I think a lot of parents who are smart, well-read – they’re the ones who are choosing not to vaccinate. And oftentimes, those who may not be as well-read – they are vaccinating.

It was like ‘Risky Business’ for 10 years. My parents were out of town, they left me a bunch of money, the car, and the house, and I didn’t know when they were coming home.
For me, vision is just about the most important thing. So goggles play a huge role in my sport.

Generally speaking, politicians are an odd bunch. They seem to have very thick skins and genuinely don’t care what people think. And charm is a very important part of the politician’s armoury. I try to resist that kind of charm.
Our adversaries – our Democratic adversaries – like to be able to portray the Republican Party as a bunch of wingnuts – narrow based, always have some agenda that’s not attractive to the public… That’s easier for them, and more fun, than dealing with their own problems. And I think their problems are significant.
I also eat fruit instead of drinking juices. That’s something I’ve read up on. I think that if you drink a lot of fruit juice you take in way too much sugar. You’d be better off eating a bunch of strawberries or apples.

You put a movie star or a bunch of movie stars in a movie, it doesn’t mean people are gonna go see it. It’s been proven time and time again.

I did a bunch of blue-collar jobs, because I knew I’d wind up with a white-collar job at some point, and I wanted to, I don’t know, I just wanted to taste life. I dug graves for a while, I worked as a stock boy in a big department store, I worked in a bank.

I don’t like it when celebrities get voice work. But then again, if I was the producer, I wouldn’t want a bunch of no-names doing my show and have to worry about word-of-mouth. I see both sides of the story.
I have been robbed a bunch of times. And now that I know how to pickpocket, I understand why I have been pickpocketed so many times.

Songwriters always reminded me of that kid at school who would go around with his guitar, like, ‘Yeah, songwritin’ man,’ looking wistful. That wasn’t me – those kinds of people put me off.

I really like collections of things. I love antique botanical prints with a bunch of different weeds and seeds.

A lot of things I have turned down ended up being a big embarrassment. Like that script, ‘The Beaver.’ I thought that was one of the worst scripts I had ever read.

I take some pains to learn the material beforehand. I have a bunch of tricks I use to try and hit the ground running. I write everything out. I take the text and I very methodically go through, and that tends to put it into my head a little bit more solidly than if I just glanced at it and hoped for the best.
I always knew the Sixties wasn’t a revolution. It really was just a bunch of university students with wealthy parents having fun.

In order to lead a country or a company, you’ve got to get everybody on the same page and you’ve got to be able to have a vision of where you’re going.

Geez, I wish I could tell you I had a whole bunch of ’80s hair bands, you know something you really wouldn’t expect, but I don’t know that the music police would be that surprised, because most of the stuff that I am influenced by is in evidence in the music.
My dad influenced my musical taste. I grew up listening to Bob Dylan and The Rolling Stones and a bunch of rock music from the ’60s. Now, instead of watching TV, I’ll play a record from start to finish.
My first real writing job was at ‘Rolling Stone,’ so I wrote about rock-and-roll and politics and the like. At the time, I really didn’t know what I wanted to write, and I did a bunch of investigative journalism.
I don’t think tablets are where we should be focused. But I do think they could end up being an efficient way of delivering textbooks. They’re just not really that, yet.

The Law and Justice government does not want a bunch of foreign historians to decide what goes on in ‘their’ museum.
I guess they just wanted to scoop a bunch of people up, hoping they got me, and unfortunately they did.

It strikes me there’s a bunch of people in power who have really strong intentions of running the world and adjusting the world to exactly how they see it.
On the set of ‘Community,’ we quote ‘Community’ to each other. We’re a lost cause. We’re like a bunch of little kids running around and yelling things.
I was the youngest member of the New York International Brotherhood of Magicians. It was me and a bunch of 60-year-old Jewish men.

I think adidas really understands that it’s cool to be in business with the right people. It really feels like a bunch of creative minds rather than some rap guys stamping their names on a sneaker. We’re arguing over shoes, ideas, and everything – it’s like a tug of war.
The best meal I’ve had was in Tavarua, an island in Fiji. It was just before sunset.

I play a bunch of instruments.
I did a Coca-Cola commercial when I was about two and a half years old, and then me and my family were extras in a bunch of Westerns. I loved dressing up and stepping into this imaginary world, and it was fun to get outside of my tiny little town with a bunch of movie weirdos.
Oh my God, I used to get heartburn and all sorts of indigestion and stuff because I didn’t feel well. And you know, I sit a lot because I write, and I gained a whole bunch of weight. My vanity just got to me, and I was like, ‘I’ve got to do something!’
It takes me a long time to write, and I trust myself, so I write very sparsely, so when I do, I know it’s good, you know what I mean? Rather than writing a whole bunch and having to sort out what’s good and what’s not.
Television showrunners are a foolishly optimistic bunch.
I don’t know if they were all functioning, but I did play in a bunch of bands.

I think I did pretty well, considering I started out with nothing but a bunch of blank paper.
I didn’t like books where people played on a sports team and won a bunch of games, or went to summer camp and had a wonderful time. I really liked a book where a witch might cut a child’s head off or a pack of angry dogs might burst through a door and terrorize a family.
I’ve never been to anywhere in Africa except Egypt. We’ve never performed there, so I would definitely like to make that trip, probably to South Africa. I’d also like to score a movie from top to bottom. I’ve had songs in a bunch of films but never done an entire movie. I’d like to do that and have it to be a hit, too!
You know, you just go out there, do your best. Sometimes it’s good enough and sometimes it is, and sometimes it stays your only one and sometimes you win bunch others behind it.
I think writing and singing go together, but I treat them as two separate careers because I write for others. If I’m writing for myself, I prefer to be with the producer. And then we can vibe out and throw ideas back and forth, and I’ll basically let the producer play me a bunch of beats until I vibe with one.
I am very busy and don’t have a lot of down time, but I write my best songs in those situations. I enjoy my life the most when I have a bunch of things going on at the same time.
I’m a real big Marilyn Manson fan. I get a lot of my styles from him. Not even musically – living-wise, too. Marilyn Manson definitely shows me you shouldn’t care what nobody say. I watched a bunch of his interviews, and he’s not just an artist; he’s one of the most intelligent people I ever saw in my life.
Activism isn’t beautiful and easy, or a bunch of people getting together and picketing; it’s a lot more complicated and difficult than that.
Let’s see: I’m into a whole bunch of different people – Alexander Wang… that’s my dude.
Even as a kid, I never liked breakfast. I just don’t like to eat then. I like to get up and work. I think sticking a whole bunch of carbohydrates in your stomach in the morning is probably the worst way to begin the day.
There are a bunch of places to stay in Des Moines, but I’d suggest finding a place on the west side of town. It’s a great urban area that has a lot to offer tourists.
I got my first job when I moved to Los Angeles. I worked at a coffee shop for five years and it was one of the best experiences I ever had. It was a bunch of actors covering shifts for each other and becoming great friends.
I mean, the acting school I went to, we did have a social experience, but you know, when it’s a bunch of actors, it’s everyone self-consciously having a social experience rather than just having a social experience.
My father left us when I was 10, so I had to make enough money for us to be able to live in a house because my brother went in the service during Vietnam and I was sole support of my mother. And she had no skills, really, except to clean other people’s houses. So I had to have a bunch of jobs, you know, as well as music.
I’m not invited to the Vanity Fair dinner where they watch the Oscars – or even the Oscars themselves – so I sit at home and watch it with a bunch of close friends.
You don’t get the fox to be in charge of the chicken coop. You don’t give the outgoing regime – which has been practicing dictatorship, is an authoritarian system, it’s a bunch of military people – the task of changing Egypt into a second republic, a new Egypt with democracy, freedom, rights, etc.
I’ve been an entrepreneur since I was 18. I started a company with a bunch of buddies that got funded in my senior year, and that’s when I finished school. It was called Scour, a peer-to-peer service, file-sharing.
Part of the mystique of shows like ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm‘ is the idea that they begin with a couple of plot lines, and then a bunch of geniuses improvise dialogue. It’s not quite that unstructured and loose. It makes for a good urban myth, but everything’s a little more tightly scripted and programmed than that.
Well, you know, certain – for one reason, I think that the intervention process is a good process for most people, but for me, it just looked like a bunch of my friends trying to get back at me and sit around taking jabs at me, you know, when I couldn’t defend myself.
I think a lot of the problem with foreign aid and things like that is you go in, give a bunch of stuff, and then it runs out. It’s about helping them learn how to continue to be sustainable and live.
I believe Costco does more for civilization than the Rockefeller Foundation. I think it’s a better place. You get a bunch of very intelligent people sitting around trying to do good, I immediately get kind of suspicious and squirm in my seat.
What you do is build your team around your core. Some teams have one main guy – not many, but some do – and you build around that. If you have a bunch of good players, that’s another way to go about it – through depth, teamwork, defense, and fundamentals.
Like all food, whether you’re talking about Persian food, or Chinese food, or Swedish food, it’s always a reflection of wars, trading, a bunch of good and a bunch of bad. But what’s left is always the food story.
I just wear black and gray all the time. If you Google Image me, you’ll just see a bunch of black and gray. It’s simple. If I like a shirt, I’ll buy six or eight of them, wear them back-to-back, and just wait for somebody to say something. ‘That’s the same shirt you wore yesterday.’ ‘Yeah, but this one is fresh.’
When you have a bunch of comfortable upholstered pieces, a single bronze or brass chair really turns the energy up.
I enjoyed the crew. The best part about ‘The X-Files‘ has been the crew. This crew is an exceptional family and to go to work with a bunch of people that you really like is great. They’re all the best of the best and they really try to do the best job they can. I’ll miss that.
If I was in a room with a bunch of skinheads talking about racism, then I would be disturbed, but after we finished a take, we were normal people again.
In high school, I went to a place called the Mountain School. It’s on a farm in Vermont, and I read Emerson and Thoreau and ran around the woods. Now I go hiking with a bunch of my comedy buddies. We talk about our emotions. I also do a lot of writing on hikes, just to get the blood flowing and the ideas moving.
When I was writing the first few books, what I would do is write a bunch of sentences and then go back and expand and explode those sentences, pack as much into them as I could, so they’d kind of be like popcorn kernels popping… all this stuff in there to make the writing dense, and beautiful for its density.
After high school, I went to VCU and got a B.F.A. in theater. I got to do a bunch of stuff professionally throughout college. I actually got my SAG card in college.
A comedian’s a comedian. They’re a very kind of cynical bunch. I guess that’s why I like them.
How did the economy produce all these amazing things that we have around us – computers and cell phones and so on? There were a bunch of ideas, and the good ones grew and prospered. And the bad ones were pretty ruthlessly weeded out.
I’m not the type of actor who is trying to do a whole bunch of different stuff, you know what I mean?
I know the responsibility that entails from telling a story. The one thing I despise the most is when I go to a movie and I see a whole bunch of lazy actors making me waste my time and money.
At the Emmys, you’ve got a bunch of people who are used to being on TV on TV. You don’t have that at the Oscars. At the Oscars, you have people who are used to having 40 takes.
I get tired of comedies where there are a bunch of funny guys and a beautiful woman who doesn’t do anything funny. And I don’t like books where there’s a rough-and-tumble boy and a really clever, snotty girl. That’s just not my experience with teenagers.
Well, I’ve seen a bunch of acupuncturists and one of my sister-in-laws is an herbalist. So I know a lot about alternative medicine. I don’t know a lot about the practice but I know about the world.
It used to be that you needed a $500-million-a-year company in order to reach a worldwide audience of consumers. Now, all you need is a Steam account. That changes a whole bunch of stuff. It’s kind of a boring ‘gee, information processing changes a stuff’ story, but it’s going to have an impact on every single company.
Common would come to my house and give me a freestyle verse. I’d make a new beat for it and put it with something else. That’s how I met Eminem – he came to my house back when he first started. He gave me a bunch of freestyles, and that’s how we built a relationship. Everyone came to my house.
I live with a bunch of yuppies and models.
I like to hold the microphone cord like this, I pinch it together, then I let it go, then you hear a whole bunch of jokes at once.
America has this understanding of Africans that plays like National Geographic: a bunch of Negroes with loincloths running around the plain fields of Africa chasing gazelles.
Instead of slashing my wrists, I just write a bunch of really crummy songs.
There’s nothing like having a football coach yelling at you at homecoming in front of a bunch of people. You do kind of get used to being inflappable in front of all that heated emotion. At times, that’s very useful in business.
I went with Tom Ford to a bunch of events one year, and he’s so wonderful and handsome and so much fun to be with; he made me look, like, 100 percent better in every single picture.
My main inspirations come from early ’90s Trance, the French electro movement round ’06, then a bunch of artists like Flying Lotus, J Dilla, Moby, The Prodigy. So I’d say it’s some kind of experimental electronica with a strong hip hop influence. It’s chilled, but people can still get super crazy and dance to it.
Right after ‘Backspacer,’ my best friend got killed tragically. Something happened to me then where I got super motivated. I had a shelf of all this unfinished music… So I just went to work and made a conscious decision that I was going to finish a bunch of stuff. Life’s short.
I don’t know where I’m going to be in three years. Because I have the feeling that the future is so full of possibilities, to stop being an actress, to do something else… for me, the future is just a huge bunch of discoveries.
I have some good books of Bach keyboard music transcribed for guitar, and there’s always a nylon-string guitar hanging on the wall in my house and a bunch of classical guitar books to grab. I kind of do that just for fun.
There’s a bunch of different flavours of funny. It’s all about the execution of it.
My way of thinking as I approach any human being on this planet is, ‘What are you doing now?’ That’s what interests me. I don’t come at anybody with a whole bunch of assumptions.
Political activists of all stripes are usually a wacky bunch, and never more so than in a system like Britain‘s, where power is effected via the quiescence of the electorate as much as its convictions.
My instinct is to assume that we consumers are an inconsistent bunch. We like competition if it delivers low prices, but grumble if it delivers the bad news that prices need to go up.
When I first got the audition for Shado, I went online and subscribed to DC Comics and read a bunch on Shado and the Yakuza, just to get to know her character better.
I always knew I wanted kids, but when my mom passed away I was like, ‘I want a bunch of kids. I want three kids or four kids, and I want to have that relationship again.’ I can’t bring my mom back, but I can have children.
I read a quote by James Dean when I was 17; he said, ‘I’d rather starve than do a whole bunch of work that I don’t care about.’ The older I got, the more I understood what he was saying. If I want to do a whole lot of work that I don’t care about, then I would probably be working in a law office somewhere.
I could only be frustrated right from the day I started in WCW and realized that it was a company run by a bunch of idiots that didn’t have a clue what they were doing.

I have a bunch of albums I would love to get re-released.
I want to have a bunch of kids so I can boss them around.
The economical policies that are instigated really makes you think that the American government is a bunch of evil bastards. So just because you’re black, you’re still representing that government, and when Obama came into office he enacted the same policies that we would critique other presidents for.
I think cursing is a bunch of malarkey.
Getting sequestered and not really knowing what to do with your time and then discovering, ‘Oh, I can watch a bunch of horror movies‘ has probably played out in a lot of people’s discovery of horror.
There’s a whole bunch of unfinished stuff. Then I’ve got books of lyrics. I find it frustrating to finish a song and not be able to record it… so I don’t write a million songs.
We were just a bunch of high school kids who got into the Ramones together.
‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’ is the best movie for a guy like me. A cerebral adventure. A moving story. A bunch of little green men.
The reason that war is such a fascinating subject for writers is because it’s a revealer. Put a bunch of people in an adrenaline-fuelled, life-or-death situation and their fundamental behaviours are exposed, the scrim is taken away and the motivations behind each personality come out to play.
I wanna make it cool for kids to get into tech, startups, and entrepreneurship – cooler than buying a bunch of jewelry.
When you’re making music or playing a song, I find the moments when there are no instruments being played even stronger than when they are being played. Because they add tension. It’s also an ego-less thing – a place where you have no ego – when you’re with a bunch of musicians who stop and listen instead.
I have this weird musical thing I do: I play violin, and I even went on tour with Tim Robbins. We did a bunch of Canadian cities, and then went down to the States, and then we ended up in Japan.
When I used to do the Edinburgh Festival, there was a bunch of guys selling fresh oysters and I’d eat ten daily – marvellous.
I would rather be at Reggae Sunsplash, which happens once a year, than doing some horrible Brady Bunch reunion.
Democrats cannot win elections without capturing the votes of independent-minded swing voters. And that is where writing off the Tea Party as a bunch of racist kooks becomes self-destructive. The Tea Party outrage over health-care reform, deficit spending and entitlements run amok is no fringe concern.
Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, they made it cool to be funny and to be embarrassed and to look a thousand different ways and show a bunch of different areas of their lives.
Russian Parliament today is a bunch of puppets that just fall in with the instructions from Kremlin.
To be honest with you, there’s nothing that bores me more than sitting around with a bunch of actors talking shop. I love actors and I’ve got friends that are actors. They’re interesting people. But for some reason, usually when it comes round to talking shop, there’s a part of me that doesn’t like it.
Once ‘A.N.T. Farm’ started, I was inspired by Chyna to jazz up my style. Now I paint my nails bright, fun colors and add a bunch of accessories and some cool shoes to jeans and a T-shirt.
I met a bunch of comic-book writers at the Metropolis convention and there was such an interesting discussion about the story of ‘Supergirl’ and trying to get it right. It can be a challenge, because you don’t want it to be the same as the Superman story.
I go off into Dublin and two days later I’m spotted walking by the Liffey with a whole bunch of new friends.
I’ve played the leads in two British TV series. I’ve done a bunch of mini-series. Everybody in Australia is a bit in awe of BBC. I’ve worked for there, and that was a great experience.
The Web meant that I didn’t have to schlep a whole bunch of stuff to a museum and fight with all their constraints and make something that, in the end, only 150 people would actually get out to see. Instead, I could put something together in my lab and make it accessible to the world.
I’ve always liked and appreciated storytellers like Garry Shandling and Bill Cosby – more long-form comedy. So starting in San Francisco, watching all these great comics – Patton Oswalt, Dave Chappelle – you get to see them a bunch, and you go, ‘Wow, this is where I need to be.’
We as black people are not a monolithic bunch. We are not all the same, and neither are women. Instead, we are all individuals who have these extraordinary stories to tell and share with each other that will enrich all of our lives and help us all become more ourselves and better people.
Gun Owners of America is a lobby group dedicated to the proposition that the National Rifle Association is a bunch of accommodationist sissies.
I just find my creativity manifesting a bunch of different ways.
After you do a joke a few times, you have material that you know works. Although sometimes I have a joke that has worked a bunch of times, and then one night it’ll flop.
Missionaries are very human folks, just doing what they are asked. Simply a bunch of nobodies trying to exalt Somebody.
I would say my fraternity was nothing but a bunch of farm boys; we weren’t really in the whole fraternity scene, but yeah, that’s a safe assessment of who I am. I’ve lived that life, growing up in agriculture and then going off to college and joining a fraternity, livin’ that life.
Bunch together a group of people deliberately chosen for strong religious feelings, and you have a practical guarantee of dark morbidities expressed in crime, perversion, and insanity.
I use this brand called Ouidad; they’re great. Not Your Mother’s is another one. Garnier Fructis. I use a bunch of stuff. Literally, I just throw a huge concoction of stuff in my hair after I get out of the shower, and then I diffuse it.
I really love big scarves. I have a whole bunch.
Pictures have a lot more power than text. Text is just a bunch of little symbols. You have to actually read it and imagine it, and even that can be censored. With pictures, it’s a lot more immediate.
It was a great experience for a kid, because it was a bunch of kids playing on pirate ships and water slides, so looking back on it, it was the fondest experience of my childhood.
I love to play. And fortunately, I don’t know a lot of musicians that suck. I know a bunch of really good ones, and they’re always up for playing.
You know, when you’re poor and you have a bunch of kids in your family, you don’t know that everybody’s not poor.
I honestly don’t have a lot of friends that are actors. Most of my friends I’ve known since sixth grade and are out of the industry. It gives me a sense of reality rather than surrounding myself with a bunch of actors.
Working with a bunch of actors is like trying to tune each violin.
The things that motivated me at 21 don’t suffice. Which is scary but really liberating in a way. It’s taken me a long time to feel like, instead of being invited to the party with a bunch of people I don’t know, that I actually deserve to be here.
If you’re in your early 20s and you’re hanging out with a bunch of other people in their early 20s, nobody has a sense of the kinds of problems that real ‘workers’ run into every day. They’re running into a completely different set of problems like ‘What’s the party going on right now that I should be going to?’
When things don’t go well, it helps to think of yourself as a genius and the rest of the world as a bunch of idiots.
I can’t imagine finding success and then moving to a building in Manhattan with 300 strangers, like a bunch of little ants going home at night.
When you are suddenly standing in front of a bunch of journalists being asked what it’s like being a British Olympic legend, it’s a bit much to take in.
God doesn’t just miraculously and physically intervene in the whole process, so if I just go and drop a bunch of chemicals and herbicides that leach into the groundwater, I can pray all day to keep my child healthy, but if the herbicides gone into the groundwater come up my well, my child’s going to drink that water.
So many reality shows are scripted and create this fake drama, and it’s a bunch of bull. We wanted to do something real and something wholesome and something that’s focused on positive family values.
I went to university in the north of England at University of Birmingham to do an English literature degree, and I knew I could do extracurricular stuff with theater and drama. I started a theater company, called Article 19, and I did it with a bunch of friends. I wrote and directed plays. I had a radio show.
I went to Northwestern in Chicago, in Evanston, and then I ended up trickling down in Chicago theater. I did a bunch of plays, but I was non-equity. For a lot of people, non-equity means you’re not yet professional. But for me, if you’re in a mainstream theater, you’re doing something real.
Here in Barcelona, it’s the architects who built the buildings that made the city iconic who are the objects of admiration – not a bunch of half-witted monarchs.
But for me to have the opportunity to stand in front of a bunch of executives and present myself, I had to hustle in my own way. I can’t tell you how frustrating it was that they didn’t get that. No joke – I’d leave meetings crying all the time.
Before I start, I search the internet for hours looking for inspiration – I look at horror movies, special effects, everything. Then, I take a bunch of screenshots, and pile them together in Photoshop to create a story for myself. I plan it out in my head, but I don’t ever practice beforehand.
I kick it with a whole bunch of people, whereas some people only want you to kick it with one race, you know.
I had done a bunch of stuff before I even went to Disney. I’m so grateful for what Disney gave me and the experiences that I got, but at the end of the day, I can do so much more than what I did on that channel and in those movies.
There are a bunch of different ways to look at the fashion industry. Is it shallow to work in fashion? Yes, it can be. But does fashion transform a woman who might feel like nothing and unimportant to glamorous and gorgeous? Yes, it does. Does it employ a huge sector of America? Yes, it does.
If you take a bunch of superstars and put them in a room where they don’t have their assistants and entourage, it’s funny to see what happens.
Growing up, it was about finding a way to entertain myself outdoors. We spent all the summers on the beach, camping with my family a bunch, and traveling as much as we could. My parents wouldn’t let me watch too much TV growing up or play video games, or anything like that.
I’ve done a bunch of jobs since ‘Deadwood’ went off the air, but it’s always been a very high bar that those other shows have to live up to.
Barry White, Smokey Robinson and Curtis Mayfield are big influences for me. But I’m also a metal head. I was in a bunch of punk rock bands. The Bee Gees, hip-hop and the Beach Boys are just as much of an influence on me as Smokey.
Usually, the music inspires the lyrics. The lyrics just sort of fall off like a bunch of crumbs from the melody. That’s all I want them to be – crumbs. I don’t want to work any kind of fabricated message.
For me, it’s just more satisfying when you follow the rules rather than just make a bunch of sounds. The magic of just making noise in the studio goes away after a while.
I’m kind of a Luddite myself. I’ve got a bunch of typewriters at home. I’m a big fan of old technology.
I figure there are a few actors like Marlon Brando, George C. Scott and Laurence Olivier who have been touched by the hand of God. I’m in the next bunch.
I’ve separated my shoulder and my collarbone; I’ve messed up my knee a million times. I’ve broken my foot in several places. I’ve broken my toe a bunch, broken my nose a couple of times, and had a bunch of other annoying little injuries, like turf toe and arthritis and tendonitis. It’s part of the game.
It’s nice, being brought up with no money at all. It’s just not how I measure success, so that makes it a bunch easier.
We’re all unique as actors. To yourself, you are unique. You have to think, ‘I’m me. I’m not going to bunch myself with other people.’ Agents and producers have to get you into a box to accommodate their limited imaginations.
I don’t work on a project unless I believe that it will dramatically improve life for a bunch of people.
A zombie film is not fun without a bunch of stupid people running around and observing how they fail to handle the situation.
I think anyone that thought that we were coming in as a bunch of liberal Democrats to deliver more large-scale social programs was nuts. I sure didn’t expect it.
There’s a dark underside to philanthropy. People who give a bunch of money are deferred to, even when they are wrong. The emperor cannot be shown to have no clothes.
Immigrants have historically been an entrepreneurial bunch.
I helped found Artists for New South Africa, but it used to be called Artists for Free South Africa. Alfre Woodard and a bunch of us started this.
I’m shy. I am. I mean, if I get around, you know, in a room of a bunch of people especially I – you know, I don’t know or – it takes me a while to warm up. I’m – and the real me, I’m not as witty as, you know, as the comic Wanda. The comic, she’s had time to work on some things.
I love getting into a studio with a bunch of friends. When the day’s done, we’ve made something. We recognize that we’re from different walks of the music industry, and there’s no reason we shouldn’t be collaborating. That’s what I’m trying to create with thenewno2 – a sense of community.
I once threw myself a surprise party on Twitter because I was lonely. It was awesome. Thousands of people showed up and then Wil Wheaton and I made a bunch of monkey-ponies. It was the most successful surprise party I’ve ever thrown in my life. It was also the only surprise party I’ve ever thrown in my whole life.
I mean the joy of doing the ‘Psych’ thing I have to say, is that, you know, I’d met them beforehand, James Roday and Timothy Omundson specifically. I met Dule Hill when I got up there. But they’re just, you know, a nice bunch of people.
I think I was probably an early teenager when I discovered Bessie Smith, Ma Rainey and a bunch of people that are on a long list of artists. They were important to me, especially as an early adolescent.
I work with a bunch of producers on every album, but the difference for ‘Evolver’ was that I couldn’t get any time with Kanye. I forget what he was doing at the time, but he was all over the place. We were never at the same city at the same time.
It’s never been seen that a street artist go as far as I’ve gone – keep consistent without wanting to do a bunch of ventures outside of music to keep my face out there.
I went to school and studied music for a year at USC, which unlocked a bunch of doors for me in terms of my relationship to music.
At the drop of a hat, people will say there are no roles for women after 40. It’s there with a bunch of other rules I’m not interested in.
In camp when I was eight – a bunch of kids threw me outside naked. I got ’em back!
I read a bunch of books about Mengele because he was pretty sick. That was how ‘Angel Of Death’ came about. I know why people misinterpret it, just because we don’t say Nazism is very bad. They get this knee-jerk reaction to it.
I had wanted to be a regular character on a series for a while. ‘The Brady Bunch’ was an answer to a prayer.
I first thought maybe I’d do a banjo presentation record, where I’d play a couple of songs and get a bunch of other players to do the rest. Then I realized I had enough of my own songs to do an album of them.
I have a bunch of fan art. I love it.
Facebook is not ideologically neutral. In fact, it emerges from a very particular world view which we can trace back to Hobbes. I discovered this by examining the profile of Zuckerberg’s fellow board members who, unlike him, are a very interesting bunch and, I suspect, the real power behind the poster boy.
The five of us don’t know how to exist in any other way. We are an ambitious bunch, I guess.
Don’t you think it would be great to do a bunch of Nicorette commercials? Just, like, me in the desert, kind of Marlboro Man-style, driving a fast car, pulling over, looking at the sunset. Dissolving in ecstasy. Can’t you see it? Me blowing huge Nicorette bubbles.
I’ve been to a number of places and seen for myself the caliber of people who are in the Navy today – in all the services for that matter. This is an altogether different bunch. These people of today are really bright, young, good people.
Older people say, ‘Oh I loved you in ‘Sense and Sensibility,’ and that’s the only film they want to talk about. Equally, there are people who only want to talk about ‘Galaxy Quest.’ And there’s a whole bunch of teenagers who only want to talk about ‘Dogma.’
That’s the only way to do it. Just like an actor. You can get a great performance if you do a bunch of takes and edit it. You find the moments and string them together.
I had a bunch of different hair colors. I was experimenting to see what I liked. It started off brown, then I did red, then I got really, really blonde!
Because the stuff that they feed kids now, they’ll have a bunch of idiots in the next millennium as far as art and culture is concerned.
People always ask about my influences, and they cite a bunch of people I’ve never heard of.
I used to tour with this band. I was a drummer. I would tour a bunch for about 10 months out of the year and act for about two months. I would make what I needed from acting and would stretch it out.
I was at Harvard with a whole bunch of poets, and that was very rare. They published a lot of books because there was an excitement after the war that translated into poetry.
I have too much to live for to allow a bunch of cowards to take my joy. I refuse to give them my joy.
I grew up in a house with dogs. We always had dogs. We always had a bunch of dogs, actually.
I’m a vegetarian, so I eat a whole bunch of avocados a lot of the time.
You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together, the club won’t be worth a dime.
I called a bunch of the restaurants in my neighborhood that I had assumed served all-organic food, and so many didn’t!
I know what it’s like to have a bunch of material that’s working that you don’t care about. You want to die.
I don’t want at the end of my life to look back at just a bunch of fictional movies I was involved in that kept taking me away from the real world.
This is the bunch of songs I did first, and it’s just the type of thing I do. I am a Carter Family girl, so the record is book-ended with Carter Family songs.
Without great writing, you’ve got a bunch of actors bumping into each other.
For those trying to protect the past, it is a way of retaining power, status, money, a way a life, predictability, comfort, control, and a bunch of other things like that. It is a struggle against the inevitability of change.
As a child growing up in a grey-skied Yorkshire village, I would occasionally happen upon a Bollywood movie on the television. After a few minutes watching a bunch of sari-clad dancers cavorting on a Swiss mountain to tuneless music, I would switch over to some proper drama about housing estates and single mothers.
It’s like our country is being run by a bunch of bad alcoholic dads right now.
I don’t believe in organized religion – I dealt with them hand in hand, and a whole bunch of Catholic priests tried to molest me. Telling me I was gay and I should go home with them and stuff.
I have a bunch of brothers. I grew up with a big family.
We have a whole bunch of young people and a whole bunch of families. Are we going to disrupt these families and tear them apart? Or are we going think, like, listen – these people are here. We’ve got to deal with this reality. We’ve got to extend the franchise.
In 1994, when I came to PepsiCo, there were really three businesses. They were soft drinks, which included both bottling and the concentrate company. There were salted snacks – Frito Lay. And restaurants where we had, we all talk of them, Pizza Hut, KFC and a whole bunch of casual dining chains.
We just had a bunch of guys who liked each other, and we worked well together and sacrificed to win ball games. It was a real team effort.
Most of the dialogue in ‘Speed’ is mine, and a bunch of the characters. That was actually pretty much a good experience. I have quibbles. I also have the only poster left with my name still on it. Getting arbitrated off the credits was un-fun.
There is no news media. There’s simply a bunch of people on television and in newspapers who are ranking members of the Democrat Party.
I played with the Lust-Cats once in Denver. I’ve seen Happy Jawbone a bunch of times, but I can’t remember if I played those shows or not.
Yeah, I’d done a bunch of pilots. Some that had gone for a while. One that went for 13 episodes. But I had never been on a show that had lasted more than that.
The whole new Democratic Party is the old Republican Party. We have a whole bunch of elephants running around in donkey’s clothes.
Football is such a team sport, so no one individual does it. No one coach or no one assistant coach or no one player, it’s a great team sport, so I don’t get carried away with a bunch of accolades.
Well, I had a lot of help from my father with the soldering and so on, and he was very good at math and was fascinated with computers, and so I was fortunate enough to have a bunch of exposure going all the way back to high school – this was in the 1960s.
I have been blessed with a bunch of great kids, grandchildren, and daughters-in-law. It’s been a great life. I know I am probably in the fourth quarter, but I am hoping for triple overtime.
I was a big music fan, but I never bought a bunch of records or was very educated, I guess, on who was who or what was what.
I live with four of my best friends – with my brother and three of my best friends – and we have a lot of fun; there’s a really tight bunch of us in London.
‘Star Trek‘ is about a bunch of disparate people and what they’re capable of when they work together.
I think our slow, humble beginnings in surf shops, ski shops, bike shops, and motorcycle shops have been extremely important for our success. GoPro is all about celebrating an active lifestyle and sharing that with other people. It’s authentic. It’s not a brand that we went out and bought a bunch of ads for to create.
With ‘Acid Rap,’ I allowed myself to be really open-minded and free with who I allowed into my musical space. I wanted to make a cohesive product, but I also just want to make a bunch of dope songs inspired by whatever sounds I liked.
You know, there’s nothing more interesting than seeing a bunch of racists become confused and angry at a speech they’re not quite certain what he’s saying.
My sister and I created a show called ‘The Real Life Brady Bunch,’ which was sort of a theatrical sensation that got us attention in L.A. and New York.
I personally would rather raise my child in New York. It seems like it would be easier to make sure she or he gets a whole bunch of experience and understanding of the world. But, people in general think it’s easier to raise a kid when you don’t have so much stuff in your face.
If we want to take a bunch of phrases and run them through a Google and say ‘Hey, who else has said them,’ I can come up with the list in five minutes.
I started playing violin in the 5th grade. They had a program in school where you could get out of class to go play instruments. So I raised my hand, left out of class, me and a bunch of my homeboys, just to get out of class for that day. They asked what instrument you wanted to play and I picked the violin.
I could never fall in love just for money. I like my co-stars, and they are a bunch of good-looking men. But I’ve dated an actor. My dream man has to be a lot more than just good looking and rich!
To be honest with you, I am passionate about all the people out there who want to know Jesus, they want to know God, and they are sick of a system that is hung up on a bunch of things that have nothing to do with the love of God.
I need boundaries. In the modern studio there are a bunch of instruments around me, and I can simulate anything I can’t play, so sometimes the palette feels too big.
Before I leave the earth, I’ll have released a bunch of albums and a bunch of movies. I’m going to do it all. It’s just that I have to strategically position myself on how I do it so that the world receives it.
I started taekwondo at 5 or 6 years old and did a bunch of kick-boxing later, too. Eventually I became a black belt and coached as well. I did some basketball and softball growing up, but most of my activity was martial arts.
A friend of mine told me a bunch of stuff on Buddhism and about Avicii being the lowest level of Buddhist hell, and it just sort of got stuck in my head. Later on when I went to setup a MySpace, I tried a bunch of names and they were all taken so I just kind of ended up with Avicii and then I got really attached to it.
If you look at the publishers I’ve worked with, generally, they’re a great bunch. Creation is unlike any other publishing house you can think of. The people I’ve worked with have integrity and intelligence and, almost always, less money than ideas.
I didn’t go to high school, but when I did go to school, I was actually in the group made up of cheerleaders; I just wasn’t one of them. But I hung out with a bunch of different kids.
As a black woman, I have no particular interest in maintaining the status quo. Why would I? The status quo is harmful; the status quo is significantly racist and sexist and a whole bunch of other things that I think need to change.
I was five years old; I got addicted to being on stage. I felt like it was the most wonderful place on Earth, performing in front of an audience, who in this case were a bunch of classmates, kids my age.
The Fuse is a solar energy station in orbit 22,000 miles above the earth. But it’s more than just a big solar panel array. The Fuse is also home to Midway City, a technically illegal settlement that grew out of a bunch of engineers who decided they’d rather make a new life in space than return home to earth.
About a year ago, out of the blue, I just wrote a bunch of songs.
A whole bunch of big technological shocks occurred when Asian innovations – paper, gunpowder, the stirrup, the moldboard plow and so on – came to Europe via the Silk Road.
Sometimes I just need somebody to tell me a bunch of ideas I don’t like, so that I can figure out what it is I actually want.
When you write and direct your own film, you basically know exactly what you want. Or you hope to. For the studio, it actually can make life a little easier, because if you have a bunch of questions, they only need to call one person.
Of course, I’d like to produce and direct a blockbuster, but you gotta build up to that. So now I’m learning from a bunch of little movies. And it’s more fun with smaller pictures. It’s more creative.
Successful enterprises are built from the ground up. You can’t assemble them with a bunch of acquisitions.
I get a little freaked out when I’m around too many redheads. I only have about one or two red-haired friends, and when a bunch of us get together, I feel like there’s going to be a fight that breaks out or something.
Old white guys can be a funny bunch, can’t they? The same anti-same-sex marriage, anti-affirmative action cadre can flower into the biggest supporters of ‘equality‘ the minute they get a whiff of minority empowerment.
I’ve been on stage since I was 7. That’s where I’d rather be than anywhere else. Just because you can do a bunch of things doesn’t mean you are a bunch of things. I can act. I can sing. But I am a dancer.
I watched the documentary ‘I Hate Christian Laettner,’ and I really hate Christian Laettner. It made me understand why everybody hates Christian Laettner and Duke basketball. I mean, they’re just a bunch of preppy white boys from Tobacco Road or whatever.
Drink a bunch of water and get facials regularly. I take care of my skin.
I come from classical theater training and when I went to college it was a bunch of kids that were hand-picked from around the world. I was around such brilliant young minds and incredible artists with incredible teachers.
So I don’t think I’m gonna pull my head into my shell just because a bunch of people start acting like idiots.
I don’t mind what the market is, but why is it vapid? If they’re such a bunch of idiots, why don’t you show them good music instead? They’re not going to know the difference.
My dad was always such a frustrated artist. He always worked very hard to support his family, doing a bunch of ridiculous jobs. He wanted to be a painter, but then he also wrote science-fiction novels in his spare time.
First I wanted to be a veterinarian. And then I realized you had to give them shots to put them to sleep, so I decided I’d just buy a bunch of animals and have them in my house instead.
Most people who end up being successful have good grades, but it’s orthogonal – there’s no extra information than if they put together a website and have bunch of fans who love coming and seeing what they’re doing.
Originally a record producer more or less hired a bunch of professionals to participate in a recording session, the performers and the technicians, and a music director was put in charge. That directly related to a film producer’s job.
I was involved in a bunch of school activities – I was a cheerleader, I was on the chess team, I was vice president of my class.
Religion and political cartoons, as you may have heard, make a difficult couple, ever since that day of 2005, when a bunch of cartoonists in Denmark drew cartoons that had repercussions all over the world – demonstrations, fatwa, they provoked violence. People died in the violence.
I’m a spokesman for myself. It just so happens that there’s a bunch of people that are concerned with what I have to say. I find that frightening at times because I’m just as confused as most people. I don’t have the answers for anything.
‘Lost’ is about a bunch of people stranded on an island. It’s compelling, but kind of tiny. But what sustains you are the characters.
I’d be a liar if I said I didn’t care what people think, but I would rather have less people who like or approve of me for who I really am than a bunch more people who like or approve me for what I’m not.
I had a bunch of people who kinda looked out for me. You know, gave me the words of wisdom.
I like writing for movies. It’s nice to be alone working on fiction in your room, and then it’s nice to be in a room with a bunch of people working on a movie.
If you’re going to be honest with yourself, you have to admit that you go into show business wanting people to talk about you and wanting everyone to know who you are. But that also means there are going to be a whole bunch of people who don’t like you. No matter who you are.
If I were to leave and raise a venture fund, I would have to find 10 or 100 LPs. They would all give me a bunch of money, and I would take a percentage of that to pay myself. They would expect me to invest that over the next three years, and they want that money back in seven or eight years.
There’s a band of studio session – hot players – that play on my albums… They’re an eclectic bunch of misfits that I’ve worked with for years and years.
We are here today because of grass-roots conservatives all over the place. That’s the way the democratic process is supposed to work. It’s not supposed to be a bunch of guys in a smoky room in Austin picking the next Senator.
I have been a big guy all my life, I am not going to lose a bunch of weight, because then you’re like that weird fat person that got skinny but still has a big head. I don’t want to do that. So I’m just trying.
When you lose, there is a whole bunch of room for negativity and I don’t feed into this stuff and I do not do any talking. I don’t run my mouth.
I’ve never really considered doing stand up, but I have done readings/spoken word things fairly often in which I’ll just tell a bunch of stories and run off at the mouth. I’m a big tangent person.
Everyone’s like sheep on social media; like, one person starts making noise, and everyone’s like, ‘Hey, yeah!’ and then you got a whole bunch of people making noise at you.
‘The Big Chill’ had a bunch of really talented actors, a great soundtrack, and the college connections that the characters shared. It’s one of those movies I glean something different from every time I watch it.
I tend to make movies about my peer group. I couldn’t see myself now going back and making a movie about a bunch of college kids, necessarily. I kind of always operate in the things I’m observing around me, whether it’s friends having babies now in my life or what have you.
The question for America is pretty simple: either we want a bunch of bureaucrats in Washington telling us what we can’t do, or we empower American innovators to unlock things that we can do.
My work is my hobby and if I am not on the sets, I am at home with a bunch of very close friends.
I had a friend who had been teaching music for a long time, and he knew a bunch of teachers, so I just put up the money and started a school.
I love being an American, and it’s a beautiful country, but we are a bunch of whack jobs. We have got so much to learn.
The corporation is one of the great unheralded human inventions of destruction. It is a way to absolve from any personal liability a bunch of people. They form together in a massive ID and they do whatever they want.
I read a whole bunch of bits and pieces over the years, obviously from the fan magazines and the rest of the stuff, and I just wanted to give a little more insight into what’s happening in my personal life.
The great thing about having a bunch of kids is they just remind you that you’re the person who takes them to go poop!
I love doing a film with a new bunch of people.
I can remember the morning after President Nixon won re-election in 1972. His chief of staff, H.R. Haldeman, called a Cabinet meeting and told the members: ‘You are all a bunch of burned-out volcanoes;’ and asked for their resignations.
My first Comic-Con was when I first met Joss Whedon: He introduced me to that world and I’d never been to a convention before that. He and a bunch of the ‘Buffy’ and ‘Angel’ writers were all going down in a big van and he invited me along.
I have not seen a true grounds-up revolution from a bunch of companies getting together. It takes one company to put it together, then people draft off of that, but they don’t build it top to bottom with a specific vision.
We have co-opted seed funds. You know, Y Combinator, that was completely our money. We have secret handshakes with a whole bunch of people. Very dangerous, because word gets out that so-and-so’s money is Sequoia’s money, that would not be a good thing.
Hollywood is just a bunch of middlemen, people trying to facilitate content transfer between creators and viewers.
When I sold my first business, I wanted to do something nice for my dad. I wanted to give my parents a bunch of money, but they wouldn’t take anything from me. They were so happy for me; they felt they didn’t need money.
It’s not like some movies where you’re following a bunch of different stories you can cut around. There was nowhere to cut to. It’s these guys. We’re not cutting back to anybody else.
I can’t wait to be that age and hanging out with a bunch of people hanging out all day playing golf and going to the beach, all my own age. We’d be laughing and having a good time and getting loopy on our prescription drugs. Driving golf carts around. I can’t wait.
Closest to my heart is probably ‘Toast of London’ because I came up with the character, based on a bunch of people I worked with in the industry. And Channel 4 didn’t mess with it. Head to screen, it was exactly as I wanted it.
With expectations, when you throw that stuff out there, when you put a bunch of pressure on yourself to reach those goals, you don’t do anything different. You just keep working to get better.
I don’t have a whole bunch of literary connections. I don’t write reviews or attend writer’s conferences. I’m kind of shy and don’t want to go to a party. I just want to stay home and read my murder mysteries and try to write and cook dinner.
I would argue that’s because we had a bunch of smart people running around here. They were coming in and working very hard and many of them had left jobs in which they made significantly more money.
It seems like I’ve been writing since birth! I started writing poems before I got to school. I wrote the class musical in first grade – both words and music. It was about a bunch of vegetables who got together in a salad. I played the chief carrot!
I think growing up on a farm in a certain amount of isolation, with not a lot of friends nearby, makes you entertain yourself and kind of grows your imagination – being alone is quite good for all that. You make up stories, talk to the animals, let them be an audience, a bunch of cows.
They sign a bunch of women, and they call it a movement. I don’t like the way women in music have been identified as women first and musicians second.
I’ve always been a fan of those guys. My dad was in military school and I have a bunch of buddies that are Marines, and I just kind of want to give back to those guys that gave more than enough for us.
And getting stunt coordinator Dan Bradley and everybody from the whole ‘Bourne Supremacy‘ crew, I think was real cool for our film because we do a bunch of really big jumps in this movie.
Only in Washington would the Republican operatives get the entire press corps ginned up over the notion that I’m going to be home campaigning instead of going to a bunch of worthless parties at a convention that’s only being held to do something we all know is going to happen anyway.
Money has power. And so withholding money has power too, especially when a bunch of people do it together.
If it’s hard for Blue America to see Red America as anything other than a bunch of dumb, racist rednecks; it’s hard for Red America to recognize that many minorities are legitimately worried about what a Trump presidency means for their family.
For the people who are offended about the fact that we have a bunch of criminals and criminal enablers and buffoons and scheisters and con men and frauds and real estate frauds running our country and our government, they like to hear that they’re not the only ones that feel that way.
As a New Yorker, or wherever I am, I just want to know I can get our of the house in five minutes if I have to and not have to spend a bunch of time obsessing in the mirror, trying on a million different options. Now, I just know what works.
I didn’t really start doing stuff until I was 8 or so, but I was an extra in a bunch of different movies, and I just really took to it and really enjoyed it. I kind of bugged my parents to give L.A. a shot, and they were just super-supportive.
Life is a bunch of ups and downs. It’s how you handle it.
The world of digital media is being transformed. A bunch of new businesses can be reinvented, thanks to social graphs, the mobile internet, and the new shopping habits of the young. Those are going to create a whole generation of cool new companies.
What I have is a bunch of really hungry, amazingly talented guys that can kick anybody’s rear end.
I generally mark my ball with a quarter, but sometimes I’ll use a Canadian one-dollar coin. I have a bunch from when I played on the Canadian Tour. I’m not superstitious.
I’d feel weird on a show where it was a bunch of dudes that are my type. I like sticking out a little.
As we get older… I don’t know a single person who has devoted their life to musical theatre who hasn’t had a couple of misses as well as a bunch of hits. The misses, we learn a great deal from them.
There is a whole bunch of great British actors of my age who aren’t film stars or theatre actors; they’re very much both.
I always collect a bunch of images for every film that I do, that reminds me of an essence of the character, or the time that they live in, or what they’re experiencing.
Boston was incredible. I had some of the best experiences of my life there at Berklee because I met a bunch of other people who were at the exact same stage in life and interest as me. There were American and international students all wrapped up in the Berklee environment, where you basically did nothing but music 24/7.
I don’t like a bunch of writers sitting around, puffing smoke, they like this book, he wrote this – tell me a dirty joke, you know. It’s just not my style, I’ve never been that kind of person.
I’m looking for a bunch of new tchotchkes that represent the new part of my life.
I’m not opposed to doing a fashion line, but I want to make sure it’s the right thing and make sure its something people actually want instead of putting out a bunch of stuff that’s already been done.
When I left ‘Coronation Street,’ I wondered if I could ever be lucky enough to work with such a unanimously wonderful company of good people – and I’ve just come to that good bunch again.
I get really excited about specific therapies, personalized therapies. Like, let’s say, taking a piece of someone’s tumor and testing a bunch of treatments in a lab and being able to come up with the right therapy for that specific patient.
Well, it’s a little harder in New York. It’s not as forgiving to a film crew. You hold up a bunch of New Yorkers who can’t cross the street, they’re not going to take it well. Southern California? They’ll wait. It’s cool man. In New York, they’re like, ‘Are you kidding me? I gotta get to work.’
I don’t read my reviews, but I have a bunch of them and I will when I’m 80.
We felt if we didn’t have new material in us and we didn’t have a real reason to exist, then we probably wouldn’t have done an 80’s revival thing. We are very conscious about the fact that’s what we are as a bunch of people.
Even the contemporary horror authors who have seriously influenced me are a disparate bunch.
