I rambled all the time. I was just like that, like a rollin’ stone.

I was about 14 and I was having a lot of problems with my mom at home, and she really wanted me to focus on school and basketball. But music was all I wanted to do. I felt out of time and out of step with everyone, because they were all into hip-hop and I was so into Sly Stone and Prince.
I don’t think anything can prepare you for the ‘Strictly’ experience. It really is insane. I mean, I played football, rugby, American football. I go to the gym.

There are always people who are desperate to put you in your one camp and never let you leave. The idea that you could be interested in the Yazidi community and also in lipstick blows people’s minds. It’s a really short-sighted, Stone Age attitude; it’s boring, actually.
I tend to regard the Coase theorem as a stepping stone on the way to an analysis of an economy with positive transaction costs.
Human brains – in terms of cognition and emotion and consciousness – are essentially the same as they were at the time of Shakespeare or Jesus or Cleopatra or the Stone Age. They are not evolving with the pace of change.
I’m a huge music fan. I usually say that if I had been born with a musical inclination, it would’ve been great. The Beatles changed everything for me, and I wanted to be a journalist for ‘Rolling Stone.’ I’m a big music fan in a Cameron Crowe way, kind of in a spectator way.

Jesse Stone did more to develop the basic rock-and-roll sound than anybody else.
Before a show, I usually give myself two-and-a-half hours to get ready. I prepare my shoes first. New ballet pumps can sound like tap shoes. You have to take the noise out of them by hitting them against stone. It takes half an hour to do each pair, and I can go through three pairs in one night.
It’s not like I decided to continue the Stone Temple Pilots.
I suppose, in a way, one could say I may be less interested in my career than the audience is. Not to mean that I’m disinterested in my career, but I don’t see it in terms of one stepping stone or, ‘Now I’m going to go into my blue phase,’ or what have you.

I measure success in terms of the connection with the audience, which we’ve been able to do in spades. I mean, it’s very hard to do that.

I may worship the image of the Lord; but that act is worthless if it is not accompanied with devotion. In the absence of devotion, the idol will just be a piece of stone, and so shall I; and the worship will only mean that a stone is facing a stone!
I’m a fan of Oliver Stone. I like his movies, I like his excess, and I think he has a great capacity for empathy and it comes out more powerfully in this movie than in any of his other films, even the formal ‘I’m identifying with the underdog’ movies like ‘Born on the Fourth of July.’
Once the fired stone is out of the kiln, it is still possible to mentally reconstruct it in its original form.

In business, standards establish the rules of the game, creating path dependencies as investments are made and corresponding designs are set in stone and plastic. Inferior standards can prevail due to smart marketing or industry collusion.
Diesel coming down with shades, being seven feet tall with an all-black outfit on and the gloves; The Rock when he was wearing $800 Versace shirts; and Stone Cold, obviously, with the way he carried himself and the way he spoke and holding the microphone – these are the things that made me want to become a pro wrestler.
Colin Powell has said over the years that Saddam Hussein is like a toothache. It recurs from time to time, and you just have to live with it.

I’ve done movies with Oliver Stone and Michael Mann. And I’ve done quite a few dramas in my time, from the theatre to film work.

Book-matched marble is one of the truest ways to showcase the natural beauty of the stone and can become a statement piece of art.
When I’m working on a Slipknot song, it’s like a switch flips in my head. I can go there easily – it doesn’t take a lot of soul searching – and it’s a dark, almost sinister place. Stone Sour is more the way I’ve always written. It’s a different tone.
People who are offended by the Ten Commandments have a deeper problem than the stone that it’s written on, I think.

Because of how I looked, there was definitely a prejudice against me. People didn’t think I could play. I could see why: I weighed about eight stone and was six foot bleeding seven.
To me this movie is about what is valuable. To one person it might be a stone; to someone else, a story in a magazine; to another, it is a child. The juxtaposition of one man obsessed with finding a valuable diamond with another man risking his life to find his son is the beating heart of this film.
General McChrystal had to go. Whatever his virtues as a strategist and commander, the ‘Rolling Stone’ interview fatally compromised his ability to represent the United States in dealing with allies and to act within the circle of people who must make decisions in Afghanistan.

I learned that the first technology appeared in the form of stone tools, 2.6 million years ago. First entertainment comes evidence from flutes that are 35,000 years old.

The first time I heard Adam Feeney and Chester Stone Hansen’s ‘Vibez,’ it was used in Drake’s ‘0-100’ as a sample.

The idea of suicide is of a very set narrative, as if killing yourself is a definitive statement. But it can be just as meaningless as throwing a stone in a river.

It’s kind of a lost art form, the musical, in a way, so when ‘La La Land’ came around, I couldn’t believe my luck. I just felt like I needed someone to keep on pinching me ’cause not only was it a chance to make a musical but to work with Damien Chazelle, Emma Stone, and Ryan Gosling.
The last resort of kings, the cannonball. The last resort of the people, the paving stone.

During the Mueller investigation, Roger Stone lied to federal investigators and allegedly pressured one potential witness. Not good. Never good.
We’re chipping away at our capacity for wonder. When hologram TVs eventually go on sale, they’ll cost ВЈ20,000 and be bought only by those strange, heroic, friendless men who live in flats piled high with giant 80s mobiles and DVD players weighing eight stone.

My first workshop was in Rome, and that was the start of House of Waris. In a little magical atelier, a goldsmith, his apprentice, his stone setter – and that was where it began.
It’s tempting to look back into history with rose-tinted glasses. Most people in the Stone Age didn’t live anywhere near as long as we’re living now. Today we can enjoy a more wide-ranging diet and we have fruit and vegetables available all year round.
I think the NFL season starts with the first three or four games and all the predictions come out. You’re either great on offense, bad on defense, great on defense, bad on offense. You’re either going to have a Super Bowl chance or you won’t. And I think after that, people kind of think everything’s set in stone.
Never be afraid to fail. Failure is only a stepping stone to improvement. Never be overconfident because that will block your improvement.

Too long a sacrifice can make a stone of the heart. O when may it suffice?
My input for the first 16, 17 years of my life was AM radio, FM radio – pretty mainstream stuff. Rolling Stone was probably as edgy as it got.

School boards are, for the most part,made up of political wannabes who see a board seat as a stepping stone for political office, or well-meaning parents who represent an ethnic group or geography, or have some other narrow interests. Few people on them understand what governance is about.

Every large brand has franchisees and stores that don’t make it. It’s unfortunate, and Cold Stone did everything it could to support its franchisees, but some failure rate is part of the business.
People don’t understand that that’s really what it is. They’re looking for a magic phone number or something. And to a certain extent, I understand that, because comedy is treated so much as a stepping stone by a lot of people.
I got a call saying that George Lucas wanted to meet me. Of all the phone calls I’ve received – Oliver Stone wants to meet you; Spike Lee wants to meet you – that was the one call I never in a million years thought was going to happen.
I grew up in Stoneham, a little suburb of Boston. It’s pronounced ‘Stone ’em’ because Massachusetts doesn’t bend to the will of ‘how letters are supposed to be said.’

Let the one among you who is without sin be the first to cast a stone.
As far as criticism, I don’t mind critics. I mean, I wrote for ‘Rolling Stone’ for a hot minute. I like criticism. I enjoy criticism. The thing I don’t like is cruelty for cruelty’s sake. You don’t have to be a jerk to say something negative. You can say something in the negative sense and have class.
I love Stone Cold. It’s a weird obsession, and he should probably get a restraining order.
You know, unfortunately I’m only one person. I can’t really be in two places at one time and the amount of focus that I need to put into Slipknot makes it really difficult for me to be on tour with Stone Sour.
My career plan at this point is ‘Ice Age 5′ through ’10,’ and even ’12,’ and ‘Spider Man’ – you know, basically I’d be Emma Stone’s dad for the rest of my career. I really don’t have any problem doing that.
I have always thought of poems as stepping stones in one’s own sense of oneself. Every now and again, you write a poem that gives you self-respect and steadies your going a little bit farther out in the stream. At the same time, you have to conjure the next stepping stone because the stream, we hope, keeps flowing.
I love songs, Patty Larkin, Sharon Stone, Mae West, and Marilyn Monroe.
It’s funny, having the same name as someone. Me, Emma Watson and Emma Stone, the amount of times I’ve been called Emma Watson or Emma Stone is so funny. It’s just ’cause we’re all named Emma. None of us look alike.
Emma Stone, I think, always looks beautiful.
I’ve worked with Terrence Malick, Werner Herzog, Olive Stone and David Gordon Green, and Damien Chazelle on ‘First Man.’ When you have someone at the helm like that, they’re gonna make something great.

I’m touched by the Beatles. I want some of the music I do to reflect that. Here I am. I love Sly Stone and James Brown and Stevie Wonder, and I want my music to reflect some of that. Here I am. I’m touched by Jon Hendricks. I want some of my music to reflect that. And when I write, you’re going to hear it.
The music I love listening to is more of the Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, Dido, Jewel, Nora Jones, Joss Stone, a bit more of that organic live-instrumentation feel.

I’m quite a confident person in many ways, but there’s only so much you can hear about being compared to Hattie Jacques. For the record, she was a comedy goddess, but she was 25 stone. I hope I’m right in saying I’m not in any way nearly 25 stone.
I’m excited for Christy Marx taking over ‘Birds of Prey’. I adore ‘Rachel Rising’ by the great Terry Moore. I’m also a stone cold Scott Snyder fan; the guy is a joy to read and a pleasure to work with.
I’m not one of those people who sees documentaries as a stepping stone to doing fiction. I love documentaries and watch tons of documentaries. But, I like fiction films a lot, too.
Oliver Stone should be given a helping hand – indeed, a vigorous shove – into the land of forced retirement. There, in the professional wilderness where he belongs, standing on a splintered soapbox right next to Mel Gibson’s, he can preach his anti-Americanism and anti-Semitism into the wind.
I have quite a bit of experience reporting on corporate behavior, both doing it with independent operations in early in my career, in the underground press, to magazines like ‘Rolling Stone,’ to regional newspapers and television, and television news programs, to papers like the ‘New York Times’ and public television.
As far as rock groups, I really like Stone Temple Pilots. As for classical composers, it’s Bach. I love Paganini, too, the Italian composer who would break strings during a performance and finish playing on just one string. Someone I would have loved to play with is Jimi Hendrix.
I’m not going to walk around at 28 stone until I’m 48. My plan is to win the World’s Strongest Man, walk away gracefully, and live a long life.

Two young actresses I admire are Emma Stone and Emma Watson, because they are intelligent, talented actresses and have a great sense of humor. They have learned to balance what they love in life – acting, school and everything else.

Normally, an actress has to work to bring out her male side. In our case, the dynamic is reversed. The actor playing her modelled himself on Sharon Stone.
‘Rolling Stone,’ my first single, was only a hit in Portugal, but when we recorded my second single, ‘Can The Can,’ I got that hair-on-the-back-of-the-neck feeling, and I knew it would be huge. It topped the charts in the U.K. and Australia in 1973, and I got my first gold disc.
I can never look at anything I do subjectively – whether it’s a Stone Sour record or a Slipknot record, I can never really have my own opinion of it, ‘cos in my opinion it’s all crap.

I can well conceive a man without hands, feet, head. But I cannot conceive man without thought; he would be a stone or a brute.

I came out out at the age of 28 and knew I’d had one loss on points, and the only reason I had that loss was that the fight was taken too soon. I lost two and a half stone in eight weeks, which was virtually impossible, but I made it, and I still got that big cheque!
If you saw a better idea or business anywhere in the world, and you could reapply it legally and ethically and with attribution, you were supposed to do that. And I used that learning in building Cold Stone.

Because of my song ‘Sam Stone,’ a lot of people thought I was interested in writing protest songs. Writing protest songs always struck me as patting yourself on the back.

Sly Stone made such a huge contribution to the good feeling in the universe, and I love him as a singer.
‘Rolling Stone’ had started something called ‘Outside,’ and since I was one of two people in the office that liked going outside, I was pegged to work on it. The concept of the magazine was simple: literate writing about the out-of-doors. I jumped at the opportunity.

I’m often asked where my nickname ‘Kun’ comes from. My parents says it was a Japanese cartoon I used to watch on television when I was very young, set in the Stone Age, where the main character was a boy called Kum Kum, the little caveman.
When I graduated, I was my biggest ever: 15 stone, with a boyfriend – my first – of just 11 stone. I was 23 years old. It wasn’t just affecting my career: it was a health issue as well.
It’s pretty crazy. I was thinking about that today, how ‘True Blood’ has penetrated so much of the cultural zeitgeist. It’s truly amazing; it’s incredible! The cover of ‘Rolling Stone’ is major. What’s next, the cover of ‘Vanity Fair?’ When I’m in a ‘New Yorker’ cartoon, then I will feel like I have made it.
I’m lucky: whatever I eat, I’ve never wavered from just under 14 stone.
It’s a shame how a lot of actors use theater as a stepping stone to film and television work; I think it shouldn’t be treated that way. Maybe it’s narcissism or something. I think we should always go back to it. I try and do a play a year, and I think that’s really helped me.
It is strange: I love to be in front of the audience, but I have this opposite side that is afraid of meeting people, that doesn’t want to talk. I feel it’s like having a little hard stone inside me of problems, doubts, and shyness.
I will leave no stone unturned as far as hard work is concerned.
The poets’ scrolls will outlive the monuments of stone. Genius survives; all else is claimed by death.
I’ve always seen modeling as a stepping stone.
The unreal is more powerful than the real, because nothing is as perfect as you can imagine it, because it’s only intangible ideas, concepts, beliefs, fantasies that last. Stone crumbles, wood rots. People, well, they die. But things as fragile as a thought, a dream, a legend, they can go on and on.
Oliver Stone’s strategy is to unnerve the actors so as to make them alert and alive.
It’s frightening and unnerving to watch a stone melt.

Native Americans had only stone and wooden weapons and no animals that could be ridden. Those military advantages repeatedly enabled troops of a few dozen mounted Spaniards to defeat Indian armies numbering in the thousands.

I don’t feel that no big stone should be put over my head, saying he did this, he did that. Unless there’s something that I really did do. I believe I’m just ordinary. And I’d like for people to think of me that way, as just a guy that tried. Wanted to be loved by other people because he loved people.
When you see me on TV as Stone Cold Steve Austin, that’s definitely a part of my personality.
Labels and classifications of any type are not law, nor are they written in stone. It’s up to us to be aware of this and confront it and break through it by doing things that shock and surprise people because they thought we could never achieve at that level.
Stone’s Rules exist because sometimes the truth is too painful, and the lies will land you in prison.
The stones tear like flesh, rather than breaking. Although what happens is violent, it is a violence that is in stone. A tear is more unnerving than a break.

But which is the stone that supports the bridge?
It turned out that the buckyball, the soccer ball, was something of a Rosetta stone of an infinite new class of molecules.
For many young people, the minimum wage is a stepping stone to higher employment levels.

Joe Klein is the flower of American political journalism, a sharp raconteur who shows traces of the gonzo style that was in vogue when he was honing his craft at Rolling Stone back in the day.
At the end of the day, it’s not where you get drafted. It’s not going to set you in stone with how good you’re going to be in your NFL career. Obviously, it’s being surrounded by the right people, the right coaches, how you present yourself, how you work hard.
Leadership and punching above your weight doesn’t necessarily always have to mean gunboat diplomacy and bombing other countries into the stone age. It can actually mean leading by example, and helping other countries.
I am a rolling stone, never in one place for very long.
I never wanted to be a model. My modelling career was nothing but a stepping stone to my acting career and that’s all I ever saw it as. A pointless rock in the river that has to be stepped on in order to get to the meaningful oasis of acting.
I wouldn’t mind working with Queens of the Stone Age, doing some guitar stuff on that. Even Arctic Monkeys. I’d like to do be a bit of guitar with them guys. I’ll play on anyone’s record to be honest with you.
There may be problems we still need to tease out, but we will leave no stone unturned in our bid to make London the host city.
I’ve had boyfriends I’ve dated whom I met as Courtney, but then dated as Shane. Courtney can certainly act as a glamorous stepping stone across the pond.
Of course, Oliver Stone is not Donald Trump. But he shares with him a certain way of seeing the world and being in the world – and the luxury of persisting in this way of being, and even making a spectacle of it.
There’s a certain darkness to Slipknot, but at the same time, there’s a very strong dose of positivity. Stone Sour is the same way. There’s a certain melancholy that comes with the slower stuff, but at the end of the day there’s also that other side that is very positive. It’s all how you deliver.
I’ve been making music for a long time, but I’ve been waiting to do it right, because I don’t want people to think it’s just a stepping stone in my career. A lot of actors go that route as a way of building their careers. I don’t want it to be seen as that.
‘Turn to Stone’ was written about the Nixon administration and the Vietnam War and the protesting that was going on and all of that. It’s a song about frustration. Also, I attended Kent State.
Stone Age. Bronze Age. Iron Age. We define entire epics of humanity by the technology they use.
For the scientists, they’re kind of puzzled and pleased that somebody finds their work interesting. It makes it fun for me. I feel like I’ve sort of turned over a stone that hasn’t been turned over.

I love Rome for their calzones and New York City for the variety of quality eateries, but I absolutely fell in love with Miami for the stone crabs at Joe’s just off Ocean Drive – the best I’ve ever had, and the Cajun food. The steaks out there are colossal – it’s like having a shark and a cow on your plate.
The Alzheimer’s Association in the United States, founded by Jerome Stone, they found me because they had heard rumours that my mom was diagnosed. Jerry said, ‘We’re a small family group, and we would like to know if you’d like to join us and to spread the word about this disease.’ I said, ‘Absolutely.’
I was the illegitimate child of the legitimate theater. I had no training. I came from downtown rock and roll, and when I came in and auditioned for the Broadway revival of ‘Hair,’ I had no eyebrows – kind of a Bowie-esque glimmer kid. And it was hard representing the flower power era when we were stone cold punks.
We’re trying to leave no stone unturned, to push forward in every aspect of what it means to be a band. Because this really matters to us. Metal matters to us. And we know exactly how much it means to kids out there, too.
I love telling stories, but I also am more aware now of how complex reality is and how difficult it is to really explain what happened or how I felt. Maybe that sometimes makes me a little bit vague, because I don’t want to really put my finger on anything or set it in stone.
A molcajete is a stone mortar and pestle from Mexico. They’re great for grinding spices and making salsa and guacamole because they give everything a nice coarse and rustic feel. I’ve never collected anything, but I think I might start collecting these because each one is decorated differently.
Stone Mountain Memorial is the greatest project of its sort ever conceived. It should be finished, because it represent an idea as deep, as basic as the rocks on which our wonderful continent rests.
In a nine-piece-band is one guy gonna call up eight guys and have a 45-minute discussion about every decision? No. So things are a lot more democratic in Stone Sour. Plus, we’re closer and it’s a lot easier to communicate. In Slipknot that’s the big problem – communication.
The first money I ever earned was for drawing stone tools.
I see The Stone Roses in ’89 as Technicolor: we were all about joy and possibilities of life.
White diamonds can get boring, so I love a colored stone.
When I’m wearing too-high heels and swaying my hips, I do that Sharon Stone kind of thing – she has the sexiest walk, a New York cool thing that throws you back.

Every church is a stone on the grave of a god-man: it does not want him to rise up again under any circumstances.
I’ve become so earthy. And I never was earthy. I’m doing all kinds of different roles which are not at all like the intellectual and the legal mind of Ben Stone.
I grew up in rural Oregon in a log house with bark left on inside and out. We had no electricity, a massive stone fireplace, a grand piano, and tons of books.

I would say that Emma Stone and Emma Watson are two very talented young actresses who are very intelligent and have a great sense of humor and have learned to balance what they love with their acting career, and I think that’s really a great thing.
Census data is used to determine more than $675 billion in federal funding; it is a demographic Rosetta Stone that is referenced in the drawing of congressional districts, each states number of Electoral College votes and the application of civil rights laws, including the Voting Rights Act and the Fair Housing Act.
I get more work when I’m thinner. I was playing Alice Cooper, and I had to lose a stone, so I wasn’t eating sugar. You can’t just get straight back onto sugar, as it’s quite a powerful thing.
As a girl I wanted the Cyndi Lauper hairstyle, with the shaved side of the head, or the Sharon Stone perm from ‘Total Recall.’
My background was always more soulful pop. I was named after Ella Fitzgerald, and when I was a kid, I was listening to Lauryn Hill, Etta James, Joss Stone. For me, it was always about the voice.
Once I came up with the ‘Stone Cold’ thing, it was like a snowball rolling down a hill; it just kept getting larger and larger, and I wasn’t afraid to push the envelope.

I happen to have an expensive clothing habit, so, for me, designing clothes is a way to kill two birds with one stone.
I can remember I lost three and a half stone weight loss. It was painful, it was excruciating, it was hell. I had to exercise eight hours a day. It was very tiring, very exhausting. I came away seeing exercise as punishment.
We considered all sorts of names – everything from Tarantula Bomb to Superego to Section 8. Some of them were already taken, and some of them were kind of campy sounding. So we just decided to stick with Stone Sour. After all, what’s in a name?
I only halfway paid attention in high school Spanish class, and it may be too late now to catch up, no matter how many levels of Rosetta Stone I order.
My grandfather was the king of a region in western Nigeria, where I had the privilege to live for seven years while growing up. But what we think of as royalty in the U.K. is very different to royalty in Nigeria: if you were to throw a stone there, you would hit about 30 princes.
No better way is there to learn to love Nature than to understand Art. It dignifies every flower of the field. And, the boy who sees the thing of beauty which a bird on the wing becomes when transferred to wood or canvas will probably not throw the customary stone.
You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don’t try to forget the mistakes, but you don’t dwell on it. You don’t let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.
In the West there has always been the attempt to try make the religious building, whether it’s a Medieval or Renaissance church, an eternal object for the celebration of God. The material chosen, such as stone, brick, or concrete, is meant to eternally preserve what is inside.
There’s nothing wrong with the screaming style of singing, and I’ll be the first to admit that it conveys an emotion. But I’m getting older, and I can’t scream and shout about the same things anymore. The songs I’m writing with Stone Sour call for a lighter, different approach.
Actually, diamonds are a very common stone. I prefer emeralds.
I don’t live as ‘Stone Cold.’ I live as Steve Austin. I was ‘Stone Cold’ Steve Austin back in 2003, then I rode off into the sunset.

Faith in reason was the foundation stone of the United States.
Two of my favorite bands, Blackberry Smoke and Black Stone Cherry, I just think both of those bands are a good new progressive kind of Southern Rock that’s a little different than us but still has a rootsy thing going on.
I’ve had my ups and downs, and I definitely have a sense – in America, especially – that once you’ve made your mark and gotten your Rolling Stone piece and your Grammy nomination, that they’re on to the next piece of meat, and they don’t necessarily like to follow the twists and turns of an artistic career.
Men admire the man who can organize their wishes and thoughts in stone and wood and steel and brass.
One of those Rolling Stone Greatest Guitar Player lists came out and there was no Albert King. That’s impossible! There are 10 people on there who wouldn’t exist if it wasn’t for Albert.

My dream kitchen would have a massive island with some beautiful slab of stone, a huge fridge, possibly even a walk-in – I just want it to be a plethora of fruits and veggies. I would have a nice bar area, too.
Nature teaches more than she preaches. There are no sermons in stones. It is easier to get a spark out of a stone than a moral.
Usually my Easter reading consists of ‘Who Moved the Stone?,’ which gets dusted off annually and read, often in one sitting, to remind me of the miracle of redemption, resurrection and life after death.
I would happily help to turn the stone being thrown at me into a boomerang.
Mike Tyson was probably – positively or negatively – the most recognizable face on the planet: the ‘baddest man on the planet.’ And you had our new resident baddest man on the planet, Stone Cold Steve Austin, whom fans were just gravitating to in a way they’d never done before, walking out and flipping off Mike Tyson.
Yosemite Valley, to me, is always a sunrise, a glitter of green and golden wonder in a vast edifice of stone and space.
What cursed spirit of falsehood moveth priests to close themselves within stone walls for all their life, since Christ commanded all his apostles and priests to go into all the world, and to preach the Gospel?
All my racks are the same between Slipknot and Stone Sour. The only thing I’ll do is switch out pedals in the GCX system. But it’s the same heads, same wireless, same GCX.
Before I was humiliated I was like a stone that lies in deep mud, and he who is mighty came and in his compassion raised me up and exalted me very high and placed me on the top of the wall.
A movie like ‘La La Land’ would be just great. I just cant get over this musical love story. I loved Emma Stone and wish to do a role like that in future.
The Attitude Era was so great because you had the best collection of superstars of any one time period. You had The Rock, Stone Cold, Undertaker, Mick Foley.
That’s one thing I loved about coming up when we came up. When you had groups like Mandrill and Earth, Wind & Fire, Sly Stone, and on and on and on, the Brothers Johnson, whatever. Everybody, Ohio Players. Groups wanted to be just themselves.

I want to be host of ‘SNL.’ I want to work with Steven Spielberg, Leonardo DiCaprio, J.J. Abrams, Emma Stone and Tim Burton, Sean Penn, Cameron Crowe. I want to work with Adam Sandler – he is so funny – and Tina Fey and Amy Poehler.
Kids are meant to believe that their stepping stone to massive money is ‘The X Factor.’ Luck is great, but most of life is hard work. We do not celebrate people who have made success out of serious hard work.
Victor Stone’s story is one of acceptance – of self and others. Also, accepting his father for the person he once was, absent from his life until he turned him into Cyborg. And acceptance of oneself in that he is both Cyborg and Victor Stone simultaneously.
The real sustains the same relation to the ideal that a stone does to a statue – or that paint does to a painting. Realism degrades and impoverishes.
These people that worked with my dad doing landscaping were in a grunge band so the music on the cover of Rolling Stone was in a very real way connected to people practicing in the woods near my house while I was home doing my homework.
I love the way my weight fluctuates in the newspapers. It was 18 stone and then people look at a bad picture of me and add a few more stone on. I think the highest was 22 stone.
I did two episodes of ‘The Walking Dead,’ and it was enough to have time to get in there and really get the meat of it, but also then move on and take that experience and bring it into the next one. It was a great stepping stone.
At some point around ’94 or ’95, ‘Rolling Stone’ said that guitar rock was dead and that the Chemical Brothers were the future. I think that was the last issue of ‘Rolling Stone’ I ever bought.
In ‘Casino,’ there was this scene where Bob De Niro tape-records Sharon Stone’s phone call. Then he asks her about where she’s going, and he catches her in a lie. It was a great scene, especially for Bob’s work, but we found that, in light of the whole film, it wasn’t needed.
Think of the imagination as a giant stone from which we carve out new ideas. As we chip away, our new ideas become more polished and refined. But if you start by editing your imagination, you start with a tiny stone.
I love Roger Stone. He’s very provocative, and I like that about him. He’s not afraid to take risk, and he’s not afraid to say things.
I’ve been trying my whole life to get to this point, and it’s finally here. It’s an amazing record, and it happens to be with Stone Temple Pilots. I mean, what could be better than that?
Success is not like a cake that needs to be divided. It’s more like a heap of stones – a cairn. If someone is successful, they add a stone to the cairn. It gets very high and can be seen from all over the world. That’s how I see it.
I hate ‘Rolling Stone’ – because I loved it so much. I had the ‘Cheap Tricks’ cover and the Clash cover on my wall for years, and I just hate what happened to it. It just became the smarmy grad student that sits next to you on the bus.
When I first started YouTubeing, the idea was, ‘Oh, YouTube is going to be a stepping stone to get to other places,’ and I just totally don’t agree with that. I think YouTube is amazing. The digital space is amazing.
The observer, when he seems to himself to be observing a stone, is really, if physics is to be believed, observing the effects of the stone upon himself.
I feel nervous when the script is set in stone, and I feel nervous when I feel the script is written for mass consumption because I don’t see myself that way.

You know what I liked about ‘The Condemned?’ It’s Stone Cold being Stone Cold, and that’s what was awesome to me.
At the very least, you must make the Internet free in areas that are poverty-stricken. Without the Internet and access to information, poverty-stricken households will never catch up to households above the poverty line – throwing the African-American community deeper into the stone ages.
Thank God I have the seeing eye, that is to say, as I lie in bed I can walk step by step on the fells and rough land seeing every stone and flower and patch of bog and cotton pass where my old legs will never take me again.

I read ‘Sabella or The Blood Stone’ by Tanith Lee, which was hugely influential to me. I love Tanith’s writing. She’s just really lyrical, beautiful use of language.
One time, when I was really young, my dad and brother were watching ‘Team America,’ the Trey Parker and Matt Stone movie. I walked in and they didn’t know I was there, but I got really freaked out by the marionettes – just the look of them, their mouths, those grins. That cemented in my brain.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a canonizing institution. Jann Wenner has worked to make Rolling Stone the keeper of the canon since 1970. I don’t like that, because he uses institutional power and he uses economic power to enforce those standards.
As much as I hate his movies, Oliver Stone has an aspiration I admire, and that is that he wants his art to be part of what makes and changes public policy and cultural practice.
Nobody makes movies like Oliver Stone.
Nothing is built on stone; all is built on sand, but we must build as if the sand were stone.
Back in the day, in ’91 or so, I tried to interview Fugazi for Rolling Stone, which the band felt stood for everything they detested about corporate infiltration of music. They said, ‘We’ll do the interview if you give us a million dollars of cash in a suitcase.’ Which was their way of saying no.
I would have written of me on my stone: I had a lover’s quarrel with the world.
I’ve always loved War’s Low Rider and Sly Stone’s Thank You, and I just wanted to put my take on them.
Before there were any sort of ‘recordings’ there was performance. If we are devolved back to the Stone Age tomorrow, there will be performance.
I think I constantly refer back to some of the things that I learned in New England and throughout my career. It was a great stepping stone, and it also gave me time to mature as a player and as a quarterback.
I had a great deal of pressure to move to LA after Romancing the Stone came out and I’d become very popular. But people came to me anyway.
Stone Temple Pilots, Bush, and Silverchair are taking the simplest elements of Soundgarden, Nirvana, and Pearl Jam and melding them into one homogenous thing.

The stuff I write I’m very proud of, but I’m smart enough to know I’ll never get on the cover of ‘Rolling Stone’ next to Elvis Costello.

I’ve always loved black culture; I don’t know any other way to put it. Since I was a kid I loved music and early jazz, Sly and the Family Stone. I’m older – I’m in my early 50s – so you’ll have to excuse me. That was always very exciting to me to connect to the culture on that level.
My weight can swing by four stone.
I didn’t get into comics as a stepping stone.
The dream of those who come to Genoa is that they use it as a stepping stone towards a big club.
There are loads of actresses that modelled. They just weren’t famous. There weren’t a lot that were really known as models that became actresses, but there are hordes of them that did modelling before such as Anjelica Huston, Jessica Lange, Sharon Stone, Demi Moore and Geena Davis. There are loads of ’em.
You don’t have to label yourself, because it’s not set in stone. It’s so fluid, and there’s so much pressure on kids to label themselves and say, ‘This is what I am; this is what I like.’
I recognise why I have such a strong inability to forgive certain people who betray me. It’s chiselled in, like a name on a tomb stone.
