I don't feel at home in New Orleans. I don't feel at home in Austin or L.A. And I just felt immediately at home in northern Australia.
Aborigines are not just the oldest race in Australia; they are the oldest race on the planet. They look like dinosaurs.
Australia is properly speaking an island, but it is so much larger than every other island on the face of the globe, that it is classed as a continent in order to convey to the mind a just idea of its magnitude.
While Melbourne and Sydney fight about who wears Australia's cultural crown, Canberra just gets on with it.
When we got with Dallas Austin, he was just getting on. He was kinda like the fourth member of TLC.
Even in a time of fiscal austerity, education is more than just an expense.
Jane Austen was an extraordinary woman; to actually be able to survive as a novelist in those days - unmarried - was just unheard of.
I stated that Hiroshima and Nagasaki are 'among the most unspeakable crimes in history.' I took no position on just where they stand on the scale of horrors relative to Auschwitz, the bombing of Chungking, Lidice, and so on.
I connect with an aura, with energy. And if the person with whom I connect happens to be a female, that's just the way it is.
My uncles and my aunts were outstanding. There's just no other way to say it.
I had grown up in a world dominated by women - I had aunts and sisters and great-aunts - and I just felt like I lived in a completely female world.
Everybody gathered at my Aunt Hannah's house, and we sat around and talked, ate, drank and told lies. That's what people do, and I just sat there and listened.
I love so many directors. I love David O. Russell. I love David Fincher, I love Alexander Payne and Jane Campion and my aunt. Spike Jonze. There are just so many amazing directors.
Maybe I'll just be a good aunt.
Mustard saw my Instagram probably, like, August of 2015. He just reached out to me by DM on Instagram.
I'm just terrible at auditions. I don't know how anyone does it.
My first film, 'Vanishing on 7th Street,' I really just kinda went in for it. Just gave it my all at the auditions.
I never went on auditions because I would be terrible at it, so I just did stand-up.
I started off as a recording engineer and a beatmaker. I was this skater kid that would skateboard to auditions, and then I would use the money I'd make and buy a bunch of equipment and make a bunch of beats. I still am that kid, just with a little more money.
I'm not actively seeking stardom. I just go to auditions, and I knock on wood.
