I enjoy racing historic motorcars from the ’50s and ’60s. The seed of my interest was planted when I was about 12 years old and took over my mother’s Morris Minor. I drove it around my father’s farm. But my favorite car is still a McLaren F1 which I have had for 10 years.
Jordan has a strange haunting beauty and a sense of timelessness. Dotted with the ruins of empires once great it is the last resort of yesterday in the world of tomorrow. I love every inch of it.
I work with really cool people and so far I haven’t been approached in any embarrassing manner when it comes to image.
In Britain by contrast we still think that class plays a part in determining a person’s life chances so we’re less inclined to celebrate success and less inclined to condemn failure. The upshot is that it’s much easier to be a failure in Britain than it is in America.
I am of the very last generation who didn’t have computers at school. As we grow old we’ll become something of an aberration.
As a young man even if I was going to see a play or a film by myself I didn’t feel like I was alone. There was something that was unfolding up there that brought me into it. And I recognised that. For those two hours it made me feel like I belonged to something really good.
Cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.
“If you are interested enough in the climate crisis to read this post, you probably know that 2 degrees Centigrade of warming (or 3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) is the widely acknowledged threshold for “”dangerous”” climate change.
Cricket makes no sense to me. I find it beautiful to watch and I like that they break for tea. That is very cool but I don’t understand. My friends from The Clash tried to explain it years and years ago but I didn’t understand what they were talking about.
When the truth is that there would be no great Western music and certainly no decent choral repertoire without the Catholic faith.
I thought to be feminine was to give in to straight culture or the beauty standard but in my heart I had a flair for fashion and style. They were passions I kept secret because I didn’t understand I could love clothes and hair and makeup and still like girls.
In the modern world of business it is useless to be a creative original thinker unless you can also sell what you create.
Well for starters we have to do more to create demand for new technologies that can reduce our dependence on foreign oil and environmental degradation.
Thou must be emptied of that wherewith thou art full that thou mayest be filled with that whereof thou art empty.
I used to look like a deer in headlights on the red carpet. You step out of the car and it’s bedlam. Everyone’s got crazy eyes.
Growing up with my family gave me some of my best memories. I’d like to have a family of my own – slip away for a bit and do nothing but spend those early years with my children.
If at any moment of the day I ever think I’m remotely cool at all which is hardly ever I have two daughters who make sure that never happens.
Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards for they are subtle and quick to anger.
Dreams have only the pigmentation of fact.
In a secular age an authentic miracle must purport to be a hoax in order to gain credit in the world.
I have three dogs a cat fish. I’m a huge animal lover. They’re amazing.
If you continually diet you are putting your body in a quasi-famine situation. It slows your metabolism down and breaks the thermostat. Diets don’t work. They don’t help you understand why you’re eating more than your body wanted in the first place.
I often buy myself presents. Sometimes I will spend $100000 in one day in a posh boutique.
As a gay Jewish white South African I belong to quite a lot of minority groups. You constantly have to question who you are what you are and whether you have the courage to be who you are.
You take the healthiest diet in the world if you gave those people vitamins they would be twice as healthy. So vitamins are valuable.
I feel like my music is just an extension of my acting. I treat the songs like scenes that tell a story… it’s very similar. My favorite thing is when cartoon fans show up to my live gigs! They are always the most kick-butt audience members ’cause they’re not trying to act all cool like a lot of the music fans do! It’s refreshing!!
