Quotes / One of Us

I read the script and thought, 'Aw, I'm not Mr. Freeze. I wanna be Mr. Freeze'... But when I went in there, I totally just geeked out on them; I wanted them to know I knew Batman backwards and forwards.
Mark Hamill on his casting as Ferris Boyle, which eventually led to his playing The Joker

Unbelievable evidence of an emotional digression going on here: porno movies and video games. What am I, thirteen, emotionally? I mean, I'm looking at this receipt I got from [the video store], and it's like, Clam Lappers, and Sonic the Hedgehog. That was one weekend. That was Easter weekend. Something's going on with me, man. That's a pretty scary way to celebrate the resurrection of Christ, with Clam Lappers and Sonic-fucking-Hedgehog.
Bill Hicks, ''Arizona Bay'

...And so I am happy to turn to the President and extend what I consider to be the most American of greetings; although we may not always agree, I have been and always will be your friend. Live long and prosper.

When the rest of us have to put together a costume for Halloween or Purim or whatever weird cosplay shit you do in your free time (no judgement) we go out to our nearest Savers...But not Madonna. Madonna is a very rich and very powerful lady. When Madonna wanted to dress up as Daenerys Targaryen for Purim, she didn’t just send out her assistant to Party Depot and grab a generic 'Dragon Princess' costume-in-a-bag...Emilia Clarke explained that the reason Madonna’s Purim costume was so good was because it was the real thing. Emilia had received an email from an HBO publicist asking if she’d be willing to loan Madonna one of her dresses from GoT, and since she can read between the lines — that Madonna doesn’t ask, she DEMANDS — she agreed and let her wear it. Good move, Emilia; it’s always better to keep Madge on your good side lest you wake up in an ice-filled bathtub with your kidneys missing and all the youth drained from your face.

I once sold Robin Williams an entire run of Neil Gaiman’s Sandman, back when I worked in a comic book store that inexplicably featured dozens of celebrities among its clientele. He was a semi-regular customer, the first celebrity I ever met in the store, and could not have been a nicer man if he tried.

I hafta admit, I was brought on board just by the music video—not the official one, but the lyric video she released as a preview—because it has one of the most bizarre, out-of-left-field pop culture references I think I've ever seen.


...That's Mike and the 'bots from Mystery Science Theater 3000.

There is only one person in the world who cares equally about Nicki Minaj and MST3K, and that is me. This video was made for me.

Someone was posting on 4chan saying that they're Taylor Swift. There is a lot of evidence for this, some of it to do with her cat, which is nice. My evidence for is that Taylor Swift has participated in a lot of seemingly unenjoyable hobbies, like listening to John Mayer say sentences and eroding the Rhode Island coast, so maybe this is just another one of them.

"Lots of very respectable people are trekkies."
Nathan Spencer, Casualty
