It was strange: I never had an interest in school because from an early age I knew the only thing I wanted to do was to play music!

Extracting the meat from a whole crab is a time-consuming job – picking all the meat out of the legs, claws and body, double-checking for bits of shells, etc. But the flavour makes it worth it, and you get the additional bonus of the crab shells to make a flavourful bisque or stock as a base for other dishes.

Each year Citizens Against Government Waste releases the ‘Congressional Pig Book.’ Outrage over spending for shrimp on treadmills, combating Goth culture studies, bridges to nowhere, etc. ensues for about a week, and then the waste continues.

Just like you have a fashion council in Delhi to organise fashion shows, promote Indian fashion, etc, there must be such a body for films as well, especially because Delhi is now becoming the hub for movie shoots.

Intentionality and talent always matter. An extraordinary feat is certainly made more likely by someone’s focus, hard work, etc. But chance also matters.

One of my favourite scenes ever is in Mr India – when the kids are hungry and Sridevi comes with the pastries etc, and they become friends. It’s impossible not to get teary-eyed.
I don’t worry too much about learning lines per se. The memorization is the easy part for me, usually. For me, it’s more about working on the context, back story, intention, motivation, etc. Once that’s in place, the lines come pretty naturally.
Now, we are still learning how to approach girls, you know, learning what to say, etc., because the practice we’ve had was with our other girl, the cello. If you noticed, it has the shape of a female.

Over the years, I have realized that there’s more to a film’s fate than just good acting and a solid script. It needs to be marketed well. It’s the package that sells – the songs, action, actors, etc.
Some children naturally have more cognitive control than others, and in all kids this essential skill is being compromised by the usual suspects: smartphones, TV, etc. But there are many ways that adults can help kids learn better cognitive control.

Making African American films are hard in Hollywood. We need to rely on a support network and bring more cohesion to different filmmakers, actors, producers etc. It’s a very difficult business.

Women ought to be fully guarded by law in all rights of property, labor, profession, etc.; but, roughly stated, the voting population ought to represent the fighting population.
The real scares on CNN, etc. and the scares in a movie, like ‘The Purge,’ are totally different. One of the ways you can tell when someone, whether it’s a film maker or executive or producer, wants to make a scary movie but doesn’t understand that distinction is they’ll want to recreate too much of what’s on TV.
I believe that the brain has evolved over millions of years to be responsive to different kinds of content in the world. Language content, musical content, spatial content, numerical content, etc.
We need to have making, including computer science, shop, etc. as part of the core curriculum from the beginning, not just an optional afterschool thing. Things like First Robotics and all of those great programs need to become mainstream.
Now, learning how to make a movie is something you can figure out in about an afternoon. The physics of it, the marks, the lights, etc. What’s hard to do is to suspend your own feelings of self consciousness. The natural actors can do that; they can become part of a characterization and learn how to maintain it.
We are not only having a great audience for Punjabi films in north India but we are also seeing growth in other places like Mumbai, Pune, Bengaluru, Kolkata, Indore, etc. And the overseas audiences have always been good for us. Without them we couldn’t have taken Punjabi cinema to such heights.
When I watch my sons play, I think, God, acting’s the most natural thing in the world. They take the ‘Star Wars‘ characters and say, ‘Let’s pretend that I’m Hans and you’re Luke and that we’re on this planet,’ etc.
With acting I am being led by the script, other actors, the director, etc. But with songwriting I feel it is much more self reliant and allows me to be in the creative experience without being as dependent on others.
Helen Slater
For tech, I like the ‘DailySearchCast‘, ‘TWiT’ and anything Veronica Belmont does on CNET. I think Perez Hilton is a riot, and the rest of my consumption is by people: Folks like Dave Winer, Fred Wilson, Mark Cuban, Brian Alvey, Jeff Jarvis, Xeni Jardin, etc.
Ninety percent of my mentors have been male, most of them with very little in common with me on a personal level – from life experience, work experience, backgrounds, etc.
As far as engaging with fans… it’s a tricky thing. I enjoy seeing the feedback on Twitter, etc. It’s probably the actor in me.
Bryan Cogman
Alternative services would mean that there would be services available to compete with Google, Facebook, Amazon, Dropbox, Skype, etc., and they would be run by companies not based in the U.S.A. The rest of the world has simply failed in being able to compete with them, and we really should be doing better here.
The truth is what facts are. I like facts. I like things to line up and be clear, and when we are honest and true about things, it helps things to make sense, and it cuts out a lot of the fat that gets in the way and causes for the misunderstandings that I believe lead to violence and… dysfunction, etc.
Our coaches want to be a part of South Carolina football when they win it for the first time. When they win the division, when they win the SEC, win a major bowl game, etc. The opportunities to do it all for the first time here make it extra special.
Steve Spurrier
We invest in real estate, equity shares, etc. My father takes care of it and my wife helps too.
I cannot do the boy-girl romance, villains etc.; I cannot relish such cinema and I cannot make it.
Nothing concerns me other than my time. That is my only concern. I don’t pay any attention to the rest. I run after time. If that improves, the gold, silver, etc. will follow.
There’s a lot to be said for women who want to focus primarily on acting. Other women, on the other hand, aspire to combine their work in acting with other ventures in fashion, business, directing, writing, producing, etc. It’s a very personal decision.
I dislike cloyingly sweet desserts – sweet is not a flavor – so I suggest dialing back the sweetness and focusing on what the dessert is about, whether it is a ripe fruit, chocolate, etc.
Wet Hot American Summer so far is a financial disappointment and money was lost on it. But perhaps it will find its audience in video, cable, etc, maybe over the course of years.
David Wain
I think if you look down the road for Twitter, we would like to be a company – a service – that is used by billions of people around the world in every country in the world because we feel that the power of Twitter is that it brings people closer to each other, to their governments, to their heroes, etc.
All living things come hardwired with certain traits and characteristics that are part of our nature, meaning that these things come naturally to us: they’re what we’re meant to do, and they’re how universal intelligence flows though us best. Birds gotta fly, fish gotta swim, etc.

Alan Autry
As my grandmother Shamshad Begum was a noted classical singer, who had settled down in London, we used to receive several people from the music, film and literature fraternity at home. People like Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, Mehboob Khan, Khwaja Ahmed Abbas, K. Asif etc., used to visit us regularly.
The Dome is a metaphor that could mean anything – it could be nuclear fallout, terrorists – I’ve always been fascinated with stories where people’s roles are flipped on their heads, be it the Wall Street guy, the techno guy, etc. All of those things are only successful when there are people and money around.
Mike Vogel
For example, the opposition between acute and grave phonemes has the capacity to suggest an image of bright and dark, of pointed and rounded, of thin and thick, of light and heavy, etc.
Roman Jakobson
The divine is God’s concern; the human, man’s. My concern is neither the divine nor the human, not the true, good, just, free, etc., but solely what is ‘mine,’ and it is not a general one, but is – ‘unique,’ as I am unique. Nothing is more to me than myself!
It’s not just the effect of technology on the environment, on religion, on the economic structure, on society, on politics, etc. It’s that everything now exists in technology to the point where technology is the new and comprehensive host of nature of life.
Every time you say yes to a film there’s a certain percentage of your yes that has to do with the director, a certain percentage to do with the story, a certain percentage with the character, the location, etc.

But also outside of football, with the family, the most important is to settle down, to have everything good outside with school, etc.

Women in the U.S. are influenced by the same trendspopular culture, runway trends, etc. – and our hypothesis is that she’s quite anxious to be able to buy products in her town that perhaps she hasn’t been able to in the past.
As you suggested I have in the following disputed certain passages, trusting you will do me the justice either to modify the same or add a note in the new edition stating that I dispute,’ etc.
Denis Kearney
For me, the worst writing generally just ‘flips‘ things: this person’s really a traitor; it was all a dream; etc. Nothing is so ruinous as a forcedtwist,’ I think.
I’m not a great stickler for giving or receiving presents on birthdays, anniversaries, etc. as a ‘must do.’ I prefer giving a gift without occasion if I feel it’s something a friend will like.

Craig McCracken
Anybody can write anything they want these days with social media, blogging, etc.

James Dashner
Just as Bowie, Zeppelin, etc., became rock stars by remaking themselves in the image of the California girls, the Go-Gos became rock stars by pretending to be the Buzzcocks and the Sex Pistols. Jane Wiedlin always said her biggest influence was growing up in L.A. as a Bowie girl.

Lukas Haas
I’ve always been interested in the relationship between total external surround, culture, the political matrix, technology, etc., and the internal human consciousness.
Norman Spinrad

I get e-mails daily from people asking me what major I chose in college, how I got started, what equipment I use, etc. Most of the e-mails are from young kids who are trying to figure out what they want to do when they grow up.

So many of us have moved to another city, and it’s across strata, economic divides, educational status etc, but we have found ourselves in a new city with its new challenges. So there is something about ‘Dayashankar’ that people connect with.

A dark house is always an unhealthy house, always an ill-aired house, always a dirty house. Want of light stops growth and promotes scrofula, rickets, etc., among the children. People lose their health in a dark house, and if they get ill, they cannot get well again in it.

When I was in my early 20s, I looked towards exterior things to make me feel sexy – guys, clothes, shoes, etc. Now it’s all about how I feel internally.
