175822. I now believe that major labels can only work with people who care more about fame and money than the quality of the art they produce. – Malcolm Wilson

175823. They consistently hobble artists’ in the name of selling more units then are surprised when the fans don’t buy the lukewarm music this produces. So they then drop the artist. – Malcolm Wilson

175824. There’s so much excellent new music around that I can’t afford to buy it all and I haven’t the time to review as much as I’d like. I can’t remember a better time to be a musician or to listen to music! – Malcolm Wilson

175825. There should be a place and the space for all pop. – Malcolm Wilson

175826. The Americans are more honest about it and just call it college rock. – Malcolm Wilson

175827. Sometimes, an afternoon spent in bed with someone can be the most important thing in the universe. – Malcolm Wilson

175828. Music is more emotional than prose, more revolutionary than poetry. I’m not saying I’ve got the answers, just a of questions that I don’t hear other artists asking. – Malcolm Wilson

175829. It’s like someone cutting up a loved one in front of you, all the time insisting they’ve got your best interests at heart. They’re very devious nowadays. – Malcolm Wilson

175830. I think I am a star – I’m simply a funny-shaped star. – Malcolm Wilson

175831. I like ‘Bewitched’ off the first album because it’s one of the happiest songs I’ve ever written and, as any writer will tell you, happy songs are a million times more difficult to write than sad songs. – Malcolm Wilson

175832. I don’t believe that recordings should sound radically better than the artist, I think that’s dishonest. For example, I’m not a great singer but if I spent enough time tweaking my vocals, I could sound like one. But I don’t, what you hear is pretty much what I sing. – Malcolm Wilson

175833. Everyone has to find their own way, it’s just that I don’t want to go that way myself. If a band likes being on a major and feels happy there, good luck to them. – Malcolm Wilson

175835. I like being 35, I like having a bit of money to spend on music and useless gadgets. The net is providing new ways to communicate and cooperate that just didn’t exist in the 80s. – Malcolm Wilson

175836. I will never sign to a major record label again. If, by some mega fluke, a record of mine looked like it might break big, I’d try and do it via an indie or somehow license it. I’m not having my music owned by those corporate bastards again. – Malcolm Wilson

175837. I hated my brief fame. We had TV vans camped outside my house, reporters hounded me… people i’d know for years started treating me differently. – Malcolm Wilson

175838. KISS Psycho Circus is my current favorite. I’m not ashamed to say that I prefer the mindless fun of blasting hordes of creatures to exploration or adventure games. – Mike Wilson

175839. Warren Spector is amazing, and his team is as good as any in the business. Shame to see all the revenues from their game entangled with all the madness of the Dallas office. – Mike Wilson

175840. To think that we as a publisher (i.e. people who have never actually MADE a game) can have a realistic impact on a project that a team of experts is slaving away on full time for 2 years is a bit arrogant. – Mike Wilson

175841. So I guess the complete lack of any new developments is what struck me. That and the fact that much of the good we had done for the artists’ side of the industry with G.O.D. had been just as quickly undone by the big boys. – Mike Wilson

175842. Seems like it’s going to be really hard to make money at it, and, therefore, really hard to get any great games done. Much like Flash games, the audience is huge, but the content isn’t likely to be good enough to have people pay for it. – Mike Wilson

175843. Our developers will make great games for whatever high-end platforms exist. – Mike Wilson

175844. I do NOT think that PC gaming is over… it will always be the choice of the gaming enthusiast who is willing to put in the extra effort for a richer, more rewarding experience. – Mike Wilson

175846. I’m from Louisiana and live in Texas now. – Mike Wilson

175848. I had no idea until I joined the games industry and met some of the power players, particularly those running large public companies, that much of this world is run by complete clowns. – Mike Wilson

175849. All we do is sign great teams, and stay out of the way. The rest will take care of itself. – Mike Wilson

175850. Being a starving company isn’t fun for anyone. Most that go away need to go away… but certainly not all. – Mike Wilson

175851. Consolidation isn’t new, though… it was a major factor in our rush to form the Gathering and place a stake in the ground to ensure that there is a solid path for developers who are willing to stay independent and build their own companies on their own terms. – Mike Wilson

175852. RUNE is another one I’m really looking forward to. – Mike Wilson

175853. It’s funny how it usually works out that I end up dying. It sort of works out, because by the time I die, I’m usually tired of working on that particular movie, so I look forward to it. – Owen Wilson

175854. You can think of Hollywood as high school. TV actors are freshmen, comedy actors are maybe juniors, and dramatic actors – they’re the cool seniors. – Owen Wilson

175855. Movies I liked growing up were like Francis Ford Coppolla movies and Scorsese movies. – Owen Wilson

175856. I definitely would like to do some more dramatic roles. – Owen Wilson

175861. I’m actually quite conservative. – Peta Wilson

175862. I’m crazy about my father, he’s an amazing man, a real adventurer. He took us with him to travel all over the world. We were in places that were so remote, that white people hardly ever reach them. – Peta Wilson

175863. The First Amendment does not guarantee the press a constitutional right of special access to information not available to the general public, nor does it cloak the inmate with special rights of freedom of speech. – Pete Wilson

175864. I was right then, I’m right now. I think time has proven me right. – Pete Wilson

175865. It is clear that a temporary increase in the cap is needed to ensure high-tech companies can hire the specialized personnel they need to continue to help fuel California’s economic growth. – Pete Wilson

175866. Pretty much anybody who’s ever worked can relate to our show. – Rainn Wilson

175867. Scotland is the Canada of England! – Rainn Wilson

175868. What’s interesting is the show allows for the awkward pauses to be captured, which makes it stylistically unique, especially for American audiences. – Rainn Wilson

175869. Well, Dwight was born to be No. 2 and I don’t think he would know what to do as a leader. But he loves following. He would have made a great fascist. – Rainn Wilson

175870. There’s like ten minutes when it’s like, ‘Okay, wait, who is this guy again?’ And then, you know, I just put on the calculator watch and the glasses, and just be all, you know, inappropriate. And then it just works out fine. – Rainn Wilson

175871. There was one point in high school actually when I was on the chess team, marching band, model United Nations and debate club all at the same time. And I would spend time with the computer club after school. And I had just quit pottery club, which I was in junior high, but I let that go. – Rainn Wilson

175872. I’ve always been terrible on regular sitcoms with lots of jokes. I don’t know how to tell jokes. – Rainn Wilson

175873. I think we’re the only jokeless show on television. I mean really, we have no setups and no punch lines. It’s not a joke show. There are funny lines and funny moments but again the comedy is born of the human experience and awkward pauses are a great part of what it is to be human. – Rainn Wilson

175874. I think Dwight loves being number two. I don’t think he has any desire to be number one. He wants to be number two no matter where he goes. It’s like Avis. ‘We try harder.’ That’s Dwight. – Rainn Wilson

175875. Dwight is a sad clown. You’ve seen those paintings of sad clown. – Rainn Wilson

175876. The great challenge working on this show for me is wearing polyester all day long and having the worst haircut known to man at the top of my head and sitting under fluorescent lights. That is America, people. Polyester, bad haircuts, under fluorescent lights. – Rainn Wilson
