The rule for finding plots for character-centered novels, which is to ask: ‘So what’s the worst possible thing I can do to *this* guy?’ And then do it.
Trying to always be the nice guy, to appear good, can be limiting. Avoiding confrontation has closed up a number of possibilities for me.
Tumblr has a big community of bears and bear chasers. All my favorites on Tumblr and all the fan mail I get is all like, "We want to tickle you! What size shoe are you?" They’re all like really big, heavyset, bearded guys who are like, "I want to ride your face like a motorcycle!"
Guys don’t really care, they just want to get the clothes off.
The doc told me I had a dual personality. Then he lays an 82 dollar bill on me, so I give him 41 bucks and say, ‘Get the other 41 bucks from the other guy.’
It seems like all the good looking people have smaller dogs these days. Especially for the women, because they always come in with their little Chihuahuas and the guys come in with their Golden Retrievers.
When all the original blues guys are gone, you start to realize that someone has to tend to the tradition. I recognize that I have some responsibility to keep the music alive, and it’s a pretty honorable position to be in.
They looked great, you know the drawings of the guys playing looked great and bits of string around their necks. So it didn’t seem to be that difficult a thing to do, or that inaccessible.
I’m not a big fan of lead vocalists, people who sing but don’t play. I never wanted to be in a band where the guy who was up front just sang. I’ve always thought it better when one of the musicians sings, like Steve Winwood.
I thought, ‘My God, this is like Buddy Guy on acid.’
I wish I could write easily. I’m one of those guys who’s visited by the muse when things are dire.
I am a comedian and you guys know whatever I say, I don’t mean any of it.
Guys don’t adapt as well as women do to getting their heart broken for the first time. It’s tragic.
You guys have so much energy. I threw a party in Toronto and there were, like, 4,000 people who couldn’t get in.
So I was always around music and my dad was in his own way a progressive jazzer, a big band jazzer guy.
You have to adjust to where you are but the French are all together – the guys and the women. It’s good.
Our target market is recreational bettors, but that doesn’t mean we expel the wise guys. A big bet for us is maybe $10,000.
Why not draw naked guys, just to be fair? Naked women is art, naked guys a no-no, I bet. Probably because most painters are men.
When we’ve got something to say to the world, we will. I’m really happy that people are interested. "So, what’s up with the Pixies record? So, what’s up with the Pixies record?" One guy just kept asking me and asking me in an interview, and I kept saying, "I just got done telling you no, there’s nothing to report."
Robert Hoffman is kind of infamous for beinga prankster, funny guy.
Yeah, the actors really come in as lumps of clay. We’re ready to work with the directors and find our way. These guys really come in having done their work.
I have a huge crush on Josh Hutcherson and all the guys in One Direction!
I like guys with a nice smile. I know it’s cliche, but it’s so true! I like a guy with a nice smile and nice eyes.
I’m not fast. But there are a lot of guys that are a hell of a lot slower than I am. Somebody wants to do a pay-per-view race between me and [Tom] Brady, sign me up.
So many girls and guys want to find a girlfriend and settle down. But it’s fun to be single.
If a guy’s talking to you at a club and you’re having a long conversation, and then one of your friends comes up and he automatically devotes his attention to her, that’s always a sign to look for. They’re not always just doing it ’cause they’re being ‘friendly.’ They want to look for somebody new.
Women don’t like guys who are dangerous. Women just want us to think that because women are trying to kill us.
Forbes magazine has named Mel Gibson this year’s most powerful celebrity. … Forbes’ least powerful celebrity? [Miller displayed the widely circulated image from the Lynndie England photographs of a hooded Iraqi prisoner with wires attached to his outstretched arms] You’re looking at him. Screw this guy. … [He’s a] bad guy.
The Nazi signs have got to stop. If you’re in a peace march and the guy next to you has a sign saying that ‘Bush is Hitler,’ forget the peace thing for a second and beat his ass, because he is not Hitler.
The second type you have at these parades seems to be the people who want to mislabel Hitler. Everybody in the world is Hitler. Bush is Hitler, Ashcroft is Hitler, Rumsfeld is Hitler. The only guy who isn’t Hitler is the foreign guy with a mustache dropping people who disagree with him into the wood chipper. He’s not Hitler.
Before my first novel, I was dating a woman who later went to prison for bashing a guy with a hammer.
Coppi? Is he the one we followed in the Giro del Piemonte? The guy who is as skinny as an asparagus? He doesn’t lack courage, I’ll give you that, but I think he’s kind of fragile.
The guy who trains the hardest, the most, wins.
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.
I collect old portraits. They’re all just interesting pictures of people, and you just kind of wonder who they were and what they were. There’s a guy – I don’t know who he is, but he’s wearing a suit. He’s got his arms folded, and he looks like he sold insurance or something. I’m just wondering why someone painted him.
