->I write in a genre that was not defined by me. The examples were not set out by me. They were set out 2,000 years ago by Aeschylus, Sophocles and Euripides. They were called the Greek tragedies...They went from those, to Shakespeare’s ''Romeo and Juliet'', then Jane Austen did it, put a new human twist on it. Hemingway did it with ''AFarewellToArms''. A Farewell to Arms, by Hemingway. Good stuff. ''That’s'' what I write…There are no authors in my genre. No one is doing what I do.

->If you are having a bad day you simply have to watch the second episode of The Time Monster with the commentary switched on. John Levene's solo effort is a joy to behold because he seems to think that this is some kind of forgotten gem and his personal contributions are the work of a skilled actor at the height of his powers.

->There’s a huge clue in the book ''The Man who Heard Voices'', which is devoted to the production of ''Film/LadyInTheWater''. The book covers, in great detail, how blown away Night is by a Disney executive who unthinkably failed to ‘get’ his script, and the soul-searching, sweaty-sheeted introspection about [[TheyCalledMeMad just what was wrong with other people]], that they couldn’t see how incredible his story was. -->--'''[[http://franticplanet.wordpress.com/2010/07/21/the-self-destruction-of-m-night-shyamalan/ Stuart Millard]]''', "The Self-Destruction of Creator/MNightShyamalan"

->Florence Foster Jenkins was a TERRIBLE singer. If the world of opera were the city of [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Springfield]], Ms. Jenkins would be Ralph Wiggum with his head stuck in a bucket. She was the only woman in the performing arts whose voice could strip paint. She made [[YokoOhNo Yoko Ono]] stubbing her toe sound like ReginaSpektor having an orgasm...For 32 years, the Music/RebeccaBlack of opera refused to believe she didn't have what it takes, and gave it to music regardless. She was so bad that being injured in a car crash ''actually improved her voice.'' But if that wasn't embarrassing enough, she made her own (crappy) costumes, was [[ServileSnarker mocked by her pianist]] while she performed, and tossed flowers to the crowd during her acts and then ''took them back for the next show.'' -->--'''''{{Website/Cracked}}''''', [[http://www.cracked.com/blog/5-star-performers-who-never-let-lack-talent-stop-them/ "5 Star Performers Who Never Let a Lack of Talent Stop Them"]] ->Creator/LindsayLohan talked to ''The Mirror'' about her first performance of ''Speed-The-Plow'' that some say was a disaster because she didn’t know her lines and the audience laughed at her ass. [=LiLo=] says that the negative shit hos say about her bounces off of her freckled zombie skin and she doesn’t care what the haters think. The haters can eat it, because [=LiLo=] ran into Creator/AlPacino at a hotel recently and he told her he was proud of her for doing theater. Yeah, she probably didn’t run into THEE Al Pacino, she ran into [[NamesTheSame some random dude who happens to be named Al Pacino.]] And he didn’t tell her he was proud of her for doing for theater, he asked her what her hourly rate is.

->As a case study, to look at his films, to step back with distance and chart the downfall, is to reveal a sedimentary-layer view of a man losing total control of his ego, and his own ability to objectively judge his own work. There’s a huge clue in the book ''The Man who Heard Voices'', which is devoted to the production of ''Film/LadyInTheWater''.
