When I moved down to Houston, I had people who were willing to support me with sponsorships and different endorsement deals. That’s really how I stayed afloat.

It’s too easy to dismiss Donald Trump as a buffoon – to point and laugh at a man whose worldview is as ridiculous as his hairdo. But to do so is to make light of a very serious threat.

After ‘Freaks and Geeks,’ I dealt with several producers who wanted to cover up all my beauty marks, every single mole on my body.

Half the things I’ve done are wrong, mistakes [unintelligible]. The moratorium on pot and LSD a year ago is ridiculous. I shouldn’t have done that. I make a blunder at least one out of two times I come to bat.

Human beings are born solitary, but everywhere they are in chains – daisy chains – of interactivity. Social actions are makeshift forms, often courageous, sometimes ridiculous, always strange.

There’s just nothing funnier or crazier than that – doing your Broadway debut as Spider-Man in ‘Spider-Man’ the musical. It was, like, the last thing I could have ever possibly imagined happening.

It’s quite difficult to take a superhero movie seriously because everything is heightened. A kid being bitten by a radioactive spider and getting superpowers is kind of ridiculous.

I always have confidence that I’ll figure something out. I just have that confidence that things are going to work out fine.

We’re surrounded by violence, and we see so much of it on TV, especially the news programs. We almost become numb. And that forces filmmakers to try to outdo themselves… They say, ‘Look what I can do,’ and it becomes like a showoff thing. To me, that’s ridiculous. Filmmaking isn’t a contest!

It’s ridiculous for a country to get all worked up about a gameвЂ”except the Super Bowl, of course. Now that’s important.

Let’s be honest, working in stop motion is awful. It’s the worst. It’s such a stupid way to make a movie. It’s ridiculous. You’re literally playing around with these dolls that are maybe 9 inches tall, trying to coax a performance out of it.

You’ve seen my statements; I do very well. I don’t mind paying some taxes. The middle class is getting clobbered in this country. You know the middle class built this country, not the hedge fund guys, but I know people in hedge funds that pay almost nothing, and it’s ridiculous, OK?

I just desperately wanted to be thin. That’s all I thought. I was obsessed with it, which it was ridiculous because I had everything going for me. I was following my dream. Everything I wanted at the time, I was getting. But I was obsessed with this other thing that was making me unhappy.
When I realise that I don’t have a lot of time left to do what I’m meant to do in terms of buying things, that’s when things begin to feel Christmassy for me – when I realise that time is against me, and I’ve got to act; otherwise, I’ll look ridiculous.

Love does not ask many questions, because with thinking comes fear. This might be the fear of being scorned, of being rejected, or of breaking the spell. However ridiculous this may seem, that is how it is. This is why one does not ask, one acts.

One doesn’t want fashion to look ridiculous, silly, or out of step with the times – but you do want designers that make you think, that make you look at fashion differently. That’s how fashion changes. If it doesn’t change, it’s not looking forward. And that’s important to me.
I saw Deep Purple live once and I paid money for it and I thought, ‘Geez, this is ridiculous.’ You just see through all that sort of stuff. I never liked those Deep Purples or those sort of things. I always hated it. I always thought it was a poor man’s Led Zeppelin.

On one level, of course, the notion of judging films or books or music against each other is completely ridiculous. Who’s to say ’12 Years A Slave’ is a better film than ‘The Wolf of Wall Street’? Or that one album in a certain genre is better than another in a completely different genre?
I went to a Christian college. You would be expelled if you were caught in a movie theater. It was ridiculous.
