I carried my Oscar to bed with me. My first and only three-way happened that night.
– Halle Berry
The most scared I’d ever been was the first time I sang at a rugby match, Australia versus New Zealand, in front of one hundred thousand people. I had a panic attack the night before because people have been booed off and never worked again… just singing one song, the national anthem.
– Hugh Jackman
I don’t gamble anymore since I had a kid. I have fun in Vegas. I see shows, Cirque du Soleil. Don Rickles was in town last time I was there. I’ll have lunch with George Wallace. I just look in the Weekly calendar and see who’s performing, and inevitably, we all meet up late night at one of the casinos. Jesus, I sound boring.
– Greg Fitzsimmons
Before I became a writer, I was running a jazz bar in the center of Tokyo, which means that I worked in filthy air all the time late into the night. I was very excited when I started making a living out of my writing, and I decided, ‘I will live in nothing but an absolutely healthy way.’
– Haruki Murakami
It sounds kind of farfetched, yet I can’t tell you how many people have had this syndrome… the ‘Old Hag Syndrome.’ Apparently, there’s this little old lady who comes into your room at night, sits on your chest and tries to suffocate you. You can Google her – she’ll pop up. She’s out there.
– George Noory
To my ears, jazz sounds better in warm weather and after the sun has gone down. While I will listen to some of my favorite jazz records in cooler weather, it’s the warmer nights that really make them come alive. Something about those sounds and the heat of the night really makes it happen for me.
– Henry Rollins
