Whats fascinating is that when you write a script, its almost a stream of consciousness. You have an idea that it means something, but youre not always sure what. Then when you get on the set, the actors teach you.
Dance music is no longer a simple Donna Summer beat. It’s become a whole language that I find fascinating and exciting. Eventually, it will lose the dance tag and join the fore of rock.
I’ve an irritating chuckle, I’ve a celebrated sneer,
I’ve an entertaining snigger, I’ve a fascinating leer;
To everybody’s prejudice I know a thing or two;
I can tell a woman’s age in half a minute–and I do
I’ve an entertaining snigger, I’ve a fascinating leer;
To everybody’s prejudice I know a thing or two;
I can tell a woman’s age in half a minute–and I do
What tries to break us is endlessly fascinating to me. Joy is a whole different game to express.

I remember visiting my grandmother Adele in Ponce Inlet, Florida, when I was three years old, and she had an IBM electric typewriter. I thought that this electric typewriter was about the most fascinating toy in the world – I liked the little bell and the sounds and the feel of the keys and especially the erase key.

Someone else’s paper is fascinating until you buy it yourself. Then it loses its appeal, and you have to pass it on to someone else to reinvigorate it.

The ego is a fascinating monster.
When I was in high school, I was really into string theory and superstring theory and read ‘Scientific American.’ It’s fascinating.
Endnotes, often confused with footnotes that live at the bottom of a page, is that lump of text at the end of the book, sometimes even relegated to a tiny font size. They’re often forgotten but, in nonfiction, particularly history books, can offer a fascinating footprint into the author’s research, a joyful, geeky abyss.
I consider myself extremely lucky to have been born and raised in London, and to have had on my doorstep this most fascinating of cities with so many relics of 2000 years of history still to be found in its streets. One of my greatest pleasures was, and still is, exploring London.
I was reading about all of these medical and psychological experimental programs that the government and various intelligence agencies had run throughout the 20th century. Any book you can read on that, there’s some really horrifying and fascinating stuff that goes on there.

The fascinating necessarily tends to call a certain attention to itself; the interesting need not. An evening spent with a fascinating person leaves vivid memories; one spent with interesting people has merely a sort of bouquet.
I was blown away by being able to color. Then I started to draw… bringing a blank white canvas to life was fascinating.
I have a Ph.D. in cell biology. And that’s really manual labor. I mean, experimental science, you do it with your hands. So it’s very different. You’re out there in a lab, cleaning test tubes, and it just wasn’t that fascinating.
I watched Westerns from the time I was a girl. My dad was a big Western fan. I always loved Clint Eastwood movies and Westworld, where the guy gets trapped in a western-themed amusement park. The western motif was fascinating to me.

Lofty questions about the mind are fascinating to ask, philosophers have been asking them for three millennia both in India where I am from and here in the West – but it is only in the brain that we can eventually hope to find the answers.

To me, fashion is ceaselessly fascinating because it is an expression of self.

The film that really struck me was Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. That was a film I watched many, many times and found endlessly fascinating in it’s density. I think the density of that film is primarily visual density, atmospheric, sound density, moreso than narrative density.
It is one of the most hauntingly beautiful places in the world, the history is fascinating, the men are handsome and the whisky is delicious. But don’t eat the macaroni pies.

The only truly intersting side of the matter was the intimate design of the injury, the fact that it was so penetrating, custom-made exactly to your measure. It’s fascinating that hatred should be so personal as to be almost loving. The knife and the wound aching for each other.
People are surprisingly off put just by saliva, the substance that you carry around in your mouth. You swallow it. You have no objection to it. But then it leaves your body, and you’re just revolted. So it – that – just that right there to me is a fascinating thing.

ThereвЂ™s this powerful phrase in the legal world, вЂњDifficult cases make bad law.вЂќ The exception is the difficult case. You canвЂ™t generalize them by definition. So although they are fascinating, they donвЂ™t solve any problem because theyвЂ™re so one of a kind.

Trees are complicated, fascinating things, usually older and more beautiful than any of us.

It is a fascinating and provocative thought that a body of water deserves to be considered as an organism in its own right.

Watching something being constructed, whether you’re passing a building site or whether you’re watching an artist at work, is fascinating, and I think that’s the enjoyment.

No one knows the complete function of sleep. Is it to reset the brain or give it more of a rest period? Is it for cleaning the brain of all the garbage protein? For me, talking about these things as a non-biologist is fascinating.
I find male singers and what they sing about fascinating. It makes me realize how little we know about ourselves and how little I know about myself. It’s interesting to see the male perspective.

It’s not like you can’t mine tons of fascinating stuff from any character that you play, and I’ve always been fascinated with women and relationships, but this has been a completely different experience, for sure.
I had never engaged in remote multishrink psychoanalysis on this scale before, so it was a fascinating experience.
Not quite birds, as they were not quite flowers, mysterious and fascinating as are all indeterminate creatures.

I grew up looking at my father as to how to behave. In watching him I grasped so many things. His own temperament was of a calm person. He was very composed and I never saw anger in him. To me, that was fascinating.
Bruce Smith is a tender master of music, and beautiful lines, and complex thoughts, and fascinating wild personal and cultural references.
It took me a while to understand the meaning of a franchise: the reasons why you see lawyer, doctor, cop shows. It’s not because anyone in their right mind says, ‘You know, what’s the most fascinating thing in the world?’ It’s because you need something new that happens every week in a frame.
The first thing we pulled out was a lump of white gunk. вЂњWax,вЂќ Carter pronounced. вЂњFascinating.
The fascinating thing about food is that if you have issues with it, you have to face it every single day.

Instruments of a trade are really fascinating to me. Things that enable you to do your job better. Rehabbing houses is really fun to me. I love taking a space and seeing the potential, gutting it, and putting it back together and I love the tools used to do that.
Dance is so fascinating and I like collaborating with people a lot.
It’s fascinating to me how they build bridges or tunnels.
She listened to him all night and he found her fascinating.
Not telling is just as interesting as telling I have found. Why speech, that short verbal journey from inside to outside can be excrutiating under certain circumstances is fascinating.

The world is a fascinating, difficult place, and in order to take full advantage of what the planet has to offer, we need to see and hear natural things.

I look forward to being part of the ASUS family and its fascinating growth journey in India.
“He Stopped Loving Her Today” a fascinating book about the making of a record. Really, to be honest, it has some of the best George Jones anecdotes I’ve ever read, like cocaine psychosis causing this personality called “the Duck.”
I get a little stressed even sometimes knowing all the things I want to read, I won’t have enough time in this lifetime. The more you read, the more you realize there are fascinating books to be read and so little time to do so.
I did a research assignment on life in the Middle Ages only last year. I found the era fascinating, all that chivalry and court romance. But I never pictured anything as poor as this village. This is the pits. There’s no romance here, definitely no chivary. And it stinks–of sweat and smoke and sewage.
Experience has shown that the more fascinating the subject, the less observant the photographer.
What’s so fascinating about people is what they don’t show. People are masters at it; usually actors show too much.

Self-tracking using a wearable device can be fascinating.
Flying radio-controlled airplanes [is my guiltiest pleasure]. Only God would give me a hobby where I’m looking up to the sky. It’s the only time where I am able to focus and concentrate on nothing but looking up. It’s a fascinating hobby.
I love history, and Churchill is one of my favorite people to study. He’s a fascinating, fascinating man.
[The heart is] really a fascinating organ. It’s about the only organ in the body that you can really witness its function. Doing things. And so on. Some of the other organs you can witness, like the intestines, will have this sort of peristaltic motion. But nothing that can compare with the activity of the human heart.
I find men’s clothing fascinating because sometime between, say, 1930 and 1936 a handful of basic shapes were created and still prevail as a sort of scale of expression, with which every man can project his own personality and his own dignity.
It was both fascinating and appalling to learn that chimpanzees were capable of hostile and territorial behavior that was not unlike certain forms of primitive human warfare.
I feel like the most fascinating parts of a trans life take place after the decision to transition. They take place when you’re in this new body, in this new life, and you start realizing things.
I read a bit of the Icelandic sagas. They’re fascinating in that they are completely ordinary. The farmer will go off into the hills and fight a troll, and then go back and do ordinary things. It’s an odd mix of fantasy and reality.
…he had a fascinating technique of gnawing his cigar from one corner of his mouth to the other, as if his teeth were equipped with trolley tracks, and suddenly grabbing it out and gesticulating wit it before he jammed it back.
I’m drawn to female stories, of which there aren’t that many, and particularly to stories now about older women. The things they have to confront and override is really fascinating. That’s a whole untold part of our world.
It’s fascinating to imagine two successful writers in one house. But when you think about it, it isn’t very unusual. In fact, so many writers have writer spouses.
It is my hope that photography may fall in line with all the other arts and with her infinite possibilities, do things strange and more fascinating than the most fantastic dreams.
It’s been a fascinating thing because we didn’t really know how to write when we started South Park at all. It’s been like, we’ve just sort of grown up a bit and it’s amazing to just see how, if you take Butters and Cartman and put them in any scene, it works.
Experimental science is fascinating, but I don’t want to do it. I want other people to do it, and I’ll read about it.
I had a little epiphany when I was a writer at ‘Chicago’ magazine. I sat down to dinner at the Ritz-Carlton. Somebody poured a white dessert wine with chocolate cake.

Well, I think storytellers have always found murder a fascinating device.

Fashion is entertainment. That’s why these top models are so fascinating to kids. They’re dying to know about Naomi and Christy, or whoever we’ve declared the new one this afternoon.
In the end of the film there is hope, … There’s beauty in ugliness. It’s really important for us Latinos to acknowledge each other and not deny the reality, because our reality is fascinating.
I like absurdist aesthetics. There’s something about dream logic that’s really fascinating, how it interweaves with narrative.
The most fascinating part is how fashion just attracts all these social rejects, if you will, from around the world, encourages individuality. They’re the people who make the industry tick.
Some families can experience terrible tragedy and deal with it, and others not. I find those things fascinating.

Eric Walrond, handsome, cosmopolitan, and beguilingly enigmatic, may have been the most promising literary talent of the Harlem Renaissance…. James Davis’s finely written, beautifully paced Eric Walrond is a major biography of a fascinating figure.
The rise of women and feminism is well documented. What is equally fascinating – and less talked about – is the impact this has had on men.
Tens of thousands who could never afford to own, feed and stable a horse, had by this bright invention enjoyed the swiftness of motion which is perhaps the most fascinating feature of material life.

I find the past so fascinating. Photographs are strange, almost surreal, almost here yet gone. I slip into thinking what the past must have been like and I enjoy creating that ambience and atmosphere – 1730 to around 1870 is the most interesting period.
I worked in the mail room at CAA when I was in high school. I worked in the literary department, too. That was my after school job, believe it or not: I would read manuscripts and then evaluations on whether or not I thought they’d make good movies. Which was fascinating and kind of hilarious to me at the time.
I find these dramas fascinating – it’s a world that many of us fortunately don’t dip into. The legal system is all around us, but the majority of us don’t have to go into a court, so it’s a way into another world that is unusual.
I hate the word ‘feminine!’ I mean, there is a woman and a man, and when I say ‘woman,’ it suggests all that is radiant, tender, fascinating, gentle, demoniac, exaggerated! ‘Feminine’ makes me think of somebody who is spindly and over-sweet – I don’t like that!
Some of the stuff about Yogi energy is really fascinating.
There was a real sophistication and elegance to (Batman: The Animated Series). It certainly appealed to kids but had a depth that really made it fascinating and interesting to watch for adult fans. I think visually, it was stylistically stunning.
The larger a star the shorter its life, but all the more fascinating its death. As it collapses within itвЂ™s body, the infalling material can be no longer be compressed; the star is blown to pieces; its shattered mass realeases out ward at the speed of light.
The world wants to define me by my mammary glands and melanin. It is just fascinating that Michael Mann has never been asked what it is like to be a white male filmmaker.
Like most people, I find my own experiences – and my emotional responses to those experiences – fascinating and mysterious, even those that are a bit shaming and a little repellent.
I find it both fascinating and disconcerting when I discover yet another person who believes that writing can’t be taught. Frankly, I don’t understand this point of view

The Web is fascinating and transformative, but it’s an easy, flashy, get-rich-quick option to the hard graft of proper industry.
With theory, we can separate fundamental characteristics from fascinating idiosyncrasies and incidental features. Theory supplies landmarks and guideposts, and we begin to know what to observe and where to act.

I know from my experience in theater that the crowd is different every night; the reactions, the tension. But it’s true for film as well, going from country to country and culture to culture. The difference between California and New York responses, for example. It’s really fascinating.
What is so fascinating about sitting around watching a bunch of pituitary cases stuff a ball through a hoop?

I think one of the most fascinating things you can do after you learn about your own people is to study something about the history and culture of other people.
You cannot even begin to understand contemporary African politics if you have not read this fascinating book
I think humans are fascinating in general. We’re so weird. We do so many quirky things, and we don’t even know it. There’s just so many layers upon layers of nuances in everything we do, and the most fun part as an actor is trying to get into all those nuances, whether they’re conscious or unconscious.
The truth is, I hoped the cure would dislike me. I tried to think of disagreeable things to say to him — I could hit on nothing that wasn’t charming. It’s wonderful how hard I find it not to be fascinating.
Everything is energy. It’s physics. So I find the science of it all interesting; how 90% of stuff that’s in our universe is made of stuff that we can’t even measure. I find that fascinating.
Those Victorians: endlessly fascinating, broad in their learning, heroic in their achievements, in parts completely mad.
It’s fascinating that people, there’s so many people now who will make judgments based on what you look like. I’m black. So I’m supposed to think a certain way. I’m supposed to have certain opinions. I don’t do that. You don’t create a box and put people in and then make a lot of generalizations about them.
I think what’s fascinating is how many people are playing in politics who maybe haven’t played before.
I think that’s what the most fascinating part of getting to know someone is – to see how they do things, and how their way of doing things is different from your way of doing things, and the fun of trying to do it their way and to see what value there is in looking at things from their perspective.
Global affairs consultant Ian Bremmer, founder of the Eurasia Group, has started a newsletter called ‘Signal,’ aimed at millennials. For years, Bremmer has written a maddeningly all-lowercase yet fascinating weekly newsletter on geopolitics.
I just found the piano so fascinating and wonderful, and I begged my parents to buy me one. In the end, they bought me a toy piano and eventually an upright piano, and I started lessons.

Rational order in the technological world can be as fascinating as the fetishes of a Congo witch-doctor – scientific phenomena become significant images.
The future, for me, is romantic, I donвЂ™t understand people who say the past is romantic. Romantic, for me, is something you donвЂ™t know yet, something you can dream about, something unknown and mystical. That I find fascinating.
I think we have a fascinating new and quite dominant input into politics – and it wont go away. From time to time, people articulate a view that we should ban opinion polls, but that’s nonsense.
Medical ethics is a fascinating discipline, as it deals with issues replete with complex philosophical, moral, and ethical considerations that are rarely black or white.
The variety within Mann’s fiction is impressive and fascinating. But Joyce is even more various and many-sided. He begins his career with a wonderful sequence of bleak studies about the ways in which human lives can go awry – in my view, Dubliners is underrated.
Of course, the moment when the ball hits the net, that’s fascinating for kids playing the game and motivates them to join a club.
