"I guess I got a little of what Lex was infected with, genetically. Not any of the science stuff, but You know how straights are, and how straight life is. Soooo boring. I found out about guys, cycles, drugs, and privilege in short order. Got off drugs. Got myself a real cycle gang while I was in college, Nasty's Nasties. Dad n' Mom didn't approve, but I didn't give a damn as long as they kept the money coming. Then they cut it off."
Youre always dressed right. You always look
right. You always say the right thing... Youre very nearly perfect. Paul:
(aghast) Thats a rotten thing to say.
Adventure. Hah! Excitement. Hah! A Jedi craves not these things.
Must you always be so ethical?
The thing about Heaven, is that Heaven is for people who like
the sort of things that go on in Heaven, like... Singing. Talking to God. Watering pot plants.
"Prim and proper, the girl who's never been cased
I'm tired of being pure and not chased
Like something that seeks its level
I want to go to the devil!"

"They say there's a heaven for those who will wait,
Some say it's better but I say it ain't.
I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints,
The sinners are much more fun.
You know that only the good die young."
People say to me, "Oh, Bill, leave them alone. They're so good, and so clean-cut, and they're such a good image for the children." FUCK THAT.
When did mediocrity and banality become a good image for your children? I want my children listening to people who fucking ROCKED! I don't care if they died in POOLS OF THEIR OWN VOMIT! I want someone who plays from his FUCKIN' HEART! "Mommy, the man Bill told me to listen to has a blood bubble on his nose—" SHADDAP AND LISTEN TO HIM PLAY.
Once upon a time, an infinite number of people lived perfect, eternal lives. The end.
Due to the growing number of the live audiences booing Cena
, Kurt Angle
began to speak negatively about black people
in an attempt to get Cena some cheers during their feud. Along with this he turned his back on the troops and refused to perform at Tribute to the Troops
, took Daivari
(who was last seen with mega heel Muhammad Hassan
) as his manager, and said he hated Jesus. ("Who did he ever beat?") Kurt still
got a considerable amount of cheers over Cena.
I love the founder of Deadspin
, Will Leitch. He's a good friend and usually a reasonable human being. But every fucking October, he morphs into an eight-year-old wearing a propeller beanie and shooting marbles on the living room floor. GOLLY GEE GUYS ISN'T CARDINALS BASEBALL JUST THE BESTEST?! And the worst part is that, whenever you tell Leitch to GO TO HELL
', he acts like you're
I can watch Cyclops objectively make the right choice, and fight for his woman, and help the school, and stand up as a reliable pillar of virtue and good intentions, but that doesn't matter, because Wolverine
smokes, and smoking is cool
Wolverine wouldnt be Wolverine if he didnt have Cyclops to rebel against. Id just rather read about the rebelling than the guy who tells him hey stop that, its after 10 and we have a noise policy here.
The problem is that Bashir is hard to get to work on his own for more than a scene. After all, The Next Generation
had a great deal of trouble with character-based storytelling for its first two years, and I suspect the fact that so many of the characters were bland idealised paragons contributed to that.
Paris was once a traitorous rogue
and Neelix a shrewd businessman
and the episode seems to go out of its way to point out how they have lost their touch and becomes such chumps
. Yes thats right, its a Mary Sue moment where the writers are actually admitting they have fudged these characters right up and revealed how the Federation turns you into lazy, boring ciphers. Well at least they admit it. Maybe weve lost our edge — oh mate, that was lost as soon as Caretaker was over.
Archer isnt Captain Kirk. He likes water polo. He spends his off-duty hours hugging a Beagle. Hes more comfortable talking about warp theory than negotiating with hostile aliens or making sweet love to green women.
: The producers of this show seem to really like going to the Clark Goes Evil
: And the sad thing is, its when Welling does his best work. Chris
: Yeah, it really makes me wonder if Wellings almost-nonexistant acting as Clark is actually some kind of a weird choice to represent the fact that Clark Kent is a guy whos holding back all the time. Like, hes going for repressed and we just end up interpreting it as "mobile cardboard".
We've got a ship that can blow up shit
But we're peaceful, that's kind of lame
is just a fancy way of saying 'We're going to make you into a boring character.'
You see, it's been our misfortune to have the wrong religion. Why didn't we have the religion of the Japanese, who regard sacrifice for the Fatherland as the highest good? The Mohammedan religion too would have been more compatible to us than Christianity. Why did it have to be Christianity with its meekness and flabbiness
Hitler, because in his own joyless mind he feels it with exceptional strength, knows that human beings dont only want comfort, safety, short working-hours, hygiene, birth-control and, in general, common sense; they also, at least intermittently, want struggle and self-sacrifice, not to mention drums, flags and loyalty-parades. However they may be as economic theories, Fascism and Nazism are psychologically far sounder than any hedonistic conception of life. [...] Whereas Socialism, and even capitalism in a more grudging way, have said to people "I offer you a good time," Hitler has said to them "I offer you struggle, danger and death," and as a result a whole nation flings itself at his feet.
The great artists of the world are never Puritans, and seldom even ordinarily respectable. No virtuous man that is, virtuous in the Y.M.C.A. sense has ever painted a picture worth looking at, or written a symphony worth hearing, or a book worth reading.

The truth of the matter is, when I first got the script, I said, 'Maniac's the most fun part'...Once again
, I'm the 'serious' guy, the man on a mission; An agenda that doesn't allow for humor, really.
The captain doesnt do nearly enough screwing and shooting on this show.
to Ronald D. Moore, scriptwriter for Star Trek: The Next Generaton
Heroes are not acting parts because they're predictable. That's the wonderful and challenging thing about playing a hero: Within predictability, how can you be surprising and amusing?
