By reason of weird translation, many such sets of instructions read like poems anyhow.

People think being famous is fun. It’s not. Even a little bit of fame. It’s bizarre. It’s weird.
A weird thing about Gossip that I’ve always said: ‘If I weren’t in this band, I would never listen to it.’ But I would go see it. It’s a band you would go see that you don’t necessarily listen to.

I grew up a little bit in Germany and then in Switzerland, then in France, the United States and in England, and so it is weird.

Drag is great way to get people to pay attention to me, but it’s a difficult way to get people to take me seriously as a musician. So it’s a weird Catch-22.

Some people come up to me in public and they’re like, ‘Oh my God, are you Noah from TikTok?’ It’s so weird to get recognized for that. I think it’s the really young fans who have never even heard of ‘Stranger Things.’

I’ve never paid too much attention to what other people have said or to what other people have tried to make me be. I’ve always just tried to be myself, which is such a weird thing to say.
You can’t compete with hip-hop. That doesn’t mean I don’t want to be as big as a rap star. I do – I’m always competitive. But there’s this weird perception of me as someone who’s sitting around plotting like a devil. It’s not like that.

I don’t pretend to be captain weird. I just do what I do.
Everyone, it’s okay to say the word ‘bitcoin‘ and acknowledge that it is the actual platform that is driving this innovation that we’re all building on. It’s also okay to say ‘the bitcoin blockchain,’ or ‘the blockchain,’ if you’re afraid that people will think you’re weird.

You know, and I said, ‘No, this is a cliche – this can’t be. Stephen King is trying to scare me with a fake rat?’ It was just really weird.
I do not think about formations too often. It is the easiest thing to recognize and to see on the pitch, but when the game starts is when things start to get weird.
The weird thing is, if I’d made ‘The Incredibles,’ shot-for-shot – exactly the same script, same timing, same shots – in live action, it would be perceived very differently, and somehow more adult than me doing it in animation. I find that fascinating and frustrating.

I was not a cool kid. There was no reason for me to be marginalised. I was just a nerd. I was kind of weird, and I found solace in video games.

I think any branding for me is band-related. It’s really weird to get used to the exposure, because I am a naturally introverted person, and I’m not exactly social.

A really good impressionist, even if they don’t look at all like the person they’re impersonating, it’s a weird thing where they start to look like that person. It’s kind of odd.
It would be so weird if we knew just as much as we needed to know to answer all the questions of the universe. Wouldn’t that be freaky? Whereas the probability is high that there is a vast reality that we have no way to perceive, that’s actually bearing down on us now and influencing everything.
I did an interview once where I was asked who I found attractive and I went on about cartoons and Nala from ‘The Lion King’ – and it’s a bit weird but various of my ex-girlfriends actually did look like Nala.

I went to a strict elementary school with nuns, and uniforms that I’m pretty sure were made out of sandpaper. It was an academic, sports-oriented place. I liked to read, and wanted to act, and didn’t try out for volleyball. I was weird. The other girls would dip my hair in ink and stuff.
I will say a lot of dancers do such beautiful things for their body and then they smoke a cigarette. I’ve never been a smoker, but I realized after taking yoga . . . in ballet you’re not encouraged to do a lot of breathing. I think in a weird way, a lot of dancers find relief in actually breathing.
I’m a weird big guy. Doing rapping, doing movies. Do a lot of stuff. But always do things the right way.
It’s a weird thing. Rick Springfield wrote ‘Jessie’s Girl,’ and he probably gets sick of talking about ‘Jessie’s Girl.’ The thing is, I didn’t write ‘Blurred Lines.’ I didn’t direct the music video. I’m really happy for the success, but it is kind of a funny thing to follow me around.
I have this weird sort of Gemini thing where I can really be empathetic and a loving person. But if you piss me off, I can be one of the meanest, most sadistic people.

No one wants to be pretentious about what they do or take it seriously, because that is just weird.

I think that people have expectations of themselves and other people that are based on these fictions that are presented to them as the way human life and relationships could be, in some sort of weird, ideal world, but they never are. So you’re constantly being shown this garbage and you can’t get there.

I’ve been trying to find women writers for my staff for a while now and I have three women on my staff and three guys so it’s pretty equal. I don’t know why that is. It’s been the same thing for a while. It’s hard for female comedians to stand out. That’s weird. That’s a shame.
The public may think I’m weird. They may think I’m crazy or anything that anyone wants to think about me. That’s all fine. As long as one of the things you’re not thinking about me is that I’m a pedophile. Because that’s not true.
People would look at me weird. You know, like, ‘Why is this guy’s hands always in his pockets?’ But I was embarrassed by the size of my hands.
The Yale group was doing the Harold. So by our senior year we were trying to do the Harold. Again, we had no idea what we were doing. We had one guy in the group who was pretty experimental; he would kind of push us to do weird things. It was really fun, a great experience.

I’m thankful for weird people out there ’cause they’re some of the most creative people.
I actually found ‘We’re the Millers’ one of the toughest, if I’m honest, least fun experiences of my life, which is weird. It was such a huge opportunity for me to work with the people I worked with and I feel grateful to be a part of that, but it kind of messed me up.
It’s a bit weird; everybody is trying to be different, but then they’re exactly the same as whatever mob they hang out with.

I was on the cover of a lot of newspapers. I was on the cover of USA Today for every single day for a month. I was on the masthead, so I tend to get recognized a lot, and in weird places. It’s always flattering, and it’s always odd. It’s always at the worst possible time.
When famous people come up to you it’s a bit weird, but it’s an honour, really, when they recognise you and want to chat to you for a bit.
I’m not a political comic at all, so it would be weird if I just turned into a preachy, sort-of political commentator.

When I’m home on a break, I lock myself in my room and play guitar. After two or three hours, I start getting into this total meditation.

It’s so weird to be alive and to be inside a body.
I only box. It’s the only thing that keeps me sane. I can’t just go to the gym and run. I’d rather die. I played volleyball and rode horses my entire life, so just, like, moving to a city and having to go the gym was just, like, so weird for me.
I had to perform at the White House for the president, That’s always kind of a weird set to try to put together.

You raised two good kids. What am I going to do now that is as meaningful as that? I don’t know the answer yet.
I skipped kindergarten because I was reading at a pretty high level. That’s a weird and cocky thing to say, but I was real sharp, and I knew that early on.

We are a weird bunch, we are very disparate.
I went to school at Juilliard, and most of our training there is the classics, and as much as I thrive in contemporary, weird, experimental work, I really am excited about finding a pioneer woman or something from a different era that I could really sink my teeth into.

I like to do weird things in the shower, like drink my coffee, brush my teeth and drink a smoothie. It’s good time management.

I’m an artist and an engineer, which is, increasingly, a more common kind of hybrid. But I still fall into this weird crack where people don’t seem to understand me.
The human longings that are deep inside of us never go away. They exist across cultures; they exist throughout life. When people were first made, our deepest longing was to know and be known.

Now I’ve devoted my life to making sure that I can be a trailblazer for any other African American kids or any other gay kids or any other kids that just feel weird or uncomfortable and have their own issues and don’t know how to express themselves. I want to be like a beacon for those kids now.
I used to wonder what it would be like to see my name on a billboard. I couldn’t even imagine something like that. Then you see it, and, well, it just makes billboards not as special as they used to be. It’s weird.

It’s weird when people start sentences with ‘frankly’ – as if their other sentences don’t count.

Nobody is so weird others can’t identify with them.
My biggest fear was public speaking, and then having everyone know who I was, it was definitely weird at first. When I first won, it was definitely a culture shock, it was something I wasn’t quite ready for.

New York City is home to so many people from so many places and the uniqueness of it is that you never feel a foreigner. English is almost hardly ever heard in the subway. In fact, it’s weird.

I would read the atlas for pleasure. I knew it was weird. It was weird.
To be honest, I think I am making normal games targeted towards normal people. But ultimately when I release those normal games, weird people find them to be weird games and enjoy them. Which probably means there’s something wrong with me.
My father did lots of things. He had an orange-juice factory. He did real estate. He did commercial selling. He was always up and about doing all sorts of weird and wonderful things and being adventurous. I always admired his self-discipline. He was very good at getting everything done. He was very tidy.
Kicking is a weird thing. You can go stretches and stretches of just doing really good, then you could have one or two kicks that can derail you. You’ve just got to learn to ride the wave.

I was a weird animal in high school, doing no work and getting straight A’s.

It was so weird that I would end up directing ‘The Greatest Game Ever Played,’ because, y’know, I’m not a big golfer myself. But I grew up around the game. My mom and dad kind of built their dream house off the 11th fairway of Shady Oaks Country Club in Fort Worth.
Ironically I think this is what sparked my interest in and passion for the NOAH, which is capable of creating all these old weird and wonderful sounds.

The re-releases have more than doubled the amount of Led Zeppelin work out there. I wanted it done authoritatively, ’cause I was the one writing the stuff; I was the producer and mixer. I don’t think it’s any more weird than writing your autobiography.
If an alien with an accounting degree touched down in America, it might conclude that we’re a weird cult that spends 11 months living frugally and four crazy weeks buying tons of stuff we don’t need. It wouldn’t be entirely wrong, either.
I enjoy catching our show whenever I can. It does get very weird to watch myself, it’s always been that way, but at the same time, it’s part of my job to see what kind of job I’m doing and to get a perspective on where I’m taking the character.
I have this problem with violence. I’ve only done one movie in almost 20 years where I killed people. It’s called Perdita Durango. It’s a Spanish movie. I’m very proud of the movie, but I felt weird doing that.
There’s something distinct and interesting about a live performance. There’s this weird immediacy that’s, for me, really invigorating, and it just feels really rewarding.

To confront those fears, in a controlled environment, where there’s 300 people around you going through the same thing, it’s this weird sort of yin and yang.

At times it’s been weird because for the first phase of my career, I’ve been really well-known for a character that I was so not like and a character I never anticipated doing.
It’s one of those weird things where I’m always curious about what’s next. It’s not just an empty restlessness, I try to appreciate things as they’re going along and in the moment, but when things are good, I’m always anxious about how I can better that or take it on further.
It’s weird to have people so interested in your personal life. It’s a part of the business that grosses me out. I’m always bummed out for people who just happen to be dating a celebrity, and they’re also famous, and they can’t live their life.
In a weird way, if you look at all the ‘Apes’ movies, they all seem like different stories in the same universe. ‘Beneath the Planet of the Apes’ is definitely a continuation, but the other ones jump all around chronologically.
I feel weird when I go to the movies and everybody’s faces are perfect.
As a little kid, I suppose I was a little weird.

I’m not interested in parts where they are looking for a good-looking guy. I want to be a weird little sidekick in a crazy comedy and then play like a dark drama or a thriller.

You know, so I was a weird eccentric kid but I did believe in the power of the word and of the word being made flesh I suppose, which again I suppose came from my temperament as well as my upbringing.
I have a weird definition of family; it’s not the same as everyone else‘s.
So the majority of Americans are conservatives. They believe in things like the Constitution. I know that’s weird to some people but they believe in it.
I usually write when I’m in a great place. When I’m depressed, I don’t usually write. So I take all of when I’m depressed and throw it into when I’m feeling good. Weird, I guess.
I think the British audience might be more open-minded with some of my imagery and weird choices.

I have no illusions concerning the precarious status of my tales and do not expect to become a serious competitor of my favorite weird authors.

The thing about being famous is, it’s weird. The only people who get how weird it is are other famous people.
I know I have this level of celebrity, of fame, international, national, whatever you want to call it, but it’s a pretty surreal thing to think sometimes that you’re in the middle of another famous person’s life and you think to yourself, ‘How the hell did I get famous? What is this some weird club that we’re in?’
My interactions with Sorkin were agonisingly weird. He is by far the weirdest person I have ever met. I had dinner with him and a few hours before I got an e-mail from his assistant saying, ‘Sean, this does not need to be a long conversation. Aaron is only going to use it to win your trust.’
It is what it is, and it’s a crazy job – I literally touch letters and wear pretty clothes, and how do you describe that job? It’s weird, but I’ve been doing it for a long time, and I’ll be first to make fun of it – I really will – but I wouldn’t trade it for anything else in world.
When I was on ‘SNL,’ I was getting weirdly anxious about being on camera, which I had never really done before. And so my solution was just to not watch my stuff. And then I found out that other actors do it, too, and I felt less weird about it.

Just having the internet is a weird and dangerous thing because people become accustomed to knowing things when they want to know them and not having to work for it. I definitely see the value in not knowing everything and having mystery in life and mystery in people.
It’s nice having your work recognized but having people follow you around is kinda weird.
I write about love, but it’s me wanting to be in love. I’ve never been in love. I love my mom, my dad. I want to be in love. I think I have to allow myself to get there. I’m just so in love with music. It’s weird. I’m at a crossroads because I want to be in love.
But honestly, it’s pretty weird; there are girls who’d do absolutely everything just to get a backstage pass. I don’t know what it is, but really, when you’re on national TV in America the girls love you. They all want you! And I’m not complaining!
For me, I really love ‘Tim and Eric’ and ‘Dr. Steve Brule’ and a lot of the Adult Swim shows, so I like strange, weird, sometimes slightly upsetting humor.
If we’re weird onstage, I don’t know what you’d call the Tubes.
It’s weird when people come up to me and know stuff about my life. That sort of creeps me out.
It’s weird to have leisure – to have time off. I’m not used to it.
But since day one, we’ve always been kinda up against it. So at the end, it’s not surprising that we were kind of led along for so many months and didn’t know what the fate of the show was gonna be. It was… in a weird way, just kind of that was the way it’s always been.
Think how weird profit margins are: We’ve got high unemployment and financial crises – and world record profit margins. People think the American market is very cheap. We don’t. The market quite incorrectly gives full credit to today’s earnings.
The characters do have a life of their own; it’s weird.
My most prized possession is my pillow. I can’t travel or sleep without it. And it’s, like, this really thin down pillow that really doesn’t do anything, but it’s weird: if I don’t have it, I’m constantly thinking about not having it.
Weird, but sometimes I feel more like my cartoon character than I do Lizzie because she’s a little more edgy and snappy.
I’m an avid University of Miami Hurricanes fan. I hope to come to the day where I can still do some stuff for NBC and somehow integrate it with an RV tour of the South for college football. Luckily, my wife, she’s a Florida State alum, so I wouldn’t have to talk her into it. I think our kids would think we’re weird.
If you look at anyone at the top of their profession, there has to be something a little bit different. Some of the top musicians are quirky aren’t they, to say the least. You have to be driven, cold, hard and mentally tough as iron. My missus thinks I’m a bit weird.
I guess the biggest thing I had to get used to was people staring. At first it was like, ‘Am I wearing something odd? Is there something on my face?’ It was kind of weird because when I go to the grocery store, people, they’re not necessarily coming up to me asking for a photo, they just… look at me.
The greatest hits in some weird way marks the end of something.
I think most human beings go through some sort of depression in their life. And if they don’t, I think that’s weird.
I have a very wonderful separation-divorce. It’s a divorce – but it’s a weird one.
People keep asking if I believe in ghosts. If you’re talking about poltergeists and weird, supernatural phenomena, not really.
I’m not very materialistic – I don’t have a whole lot of stuff. But I do always like a pair of really weird socks.
I do, too, most recently while I was singing karaoke in some weird bar.
