"There are two essential rules to management. One, the customer is always right; and two, they must be punished for their arrogance!"
Dogbert, Dilbert

"Are the Kents alive? What's his relationship with all of these characters? Who exists? And DC couldn't give me answers. I said, Oh, my gosh. You're deciding all these things and you mean even you don't know what's going on in your own books?"
George Perez

"Vince Russo is a deer caught in the headlines as long as there's a wrestling match going. As long as he can make it a phony B-movie script, or an outhouse in the ring, or woman having get the wrestling matches outta there, 'cause nobody wants to see that shit anyway. That's been proven over at WCW, where they don't even have wrestling matches anymore— I watched Thunder the other night, because I happened to be stuck in a hotel room, and I saw Lance Storm stumbling around like a drunk man. When you make that guy uncoordinated, you can do it to anybody."

"I guess in the end, it all came down to time constraints, as WWE decided beforehand that if any match was expendable, it was their World title match. Not the Divas tag team match, which could have been moved to the pre-show…

And if WWE really wanted to trim the fat off their supercard, they could have axed the Dancing Mamas segment with Brodus Clay, a sideshow it
knew nobody paid to see because it was never advertised….

…or this dreadful Santino-Foley segment that not only wasn’t advertised, but was itself an advertisement for another TV program!

A TV program airing on a rival network!"

"Can you believe they spent nearly 90 million dollars (adjusted for marketing) for this piece of sh*t. The original Mask was only made for 18 million! Yeah, that was 10 years ago so there is some inflation, but not 70 million worth of inflation! I have long ago come to grips that nothing is sacrilege in Hollywood and any crackpot idea is a go... But this makes me appreciate Roger Corman so much more. Because he made crap but at least he was a shrewd businessman. He really didn’t care what piece of sh*t you made as long as you came in on/under budget and the movie at least paid for itself on sales."

"Before I even asked for my release I said 'I would like to know who's in charge. Could you draw out a, a chain of command for me?' And these people could not do it. They had no clue and I said 'This what I'm talking about, I, I don't, you can't even draw a chain of command for me, so, and it's a simple thing. It should kind of be in your bylaws. What's your chain of command? Come on!' And I said, 'You know it's just time for me to go and I wish you guys well.'"
Awesome Kong on leaving TNA

"Eidos spent something like four million dollars marketing Soul Reaver. You'd think if it had enough faith in its product to spend $4,000,000 pimping it through magazine ads, television commercials, paid articles, action figures, and a crappy one-shot comic book, they could have redirected some of the cash going to pointless promotional swag nobody cared about and put it toward finishing the fucking game instead. But hell — maybe I don't understand business."
Pat R. on Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver
