"…he drove a cab for two weeks. He had just won an Oscar for The Godfather Part II. One evening, an actor got into his cab and recognized him. The guy, who couldn’t believe his eyes, exclaimed, “Do you have to drive a cab? Are times as bad as that? Hasn’t the Oscar helped you?” One night, I got into Bobby’s cab myself; I sat up front, next to him. We drove up and down 8th Avenue, a bad neighborhood. The impression I had was that anything could happen. You have no control over what could happen. Your life doesn’t belong to you anymore. That was exactly what the character had to feel. Believe me, anyone who drives a cab in New York at night will be like Travis Bickle sooner or later.”
—Martin Scorsese, on how Robert Deniro prepared for his role in Taxi Driver

John Lydon’s handwritten response to the U.S. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame regarding the induction of the Sex Pistols in 1996:


"Next to the SEX-PISTOLS rock and roll and that hall of fame is a piss stain. Your museum. Urine in wine. Were not coming. Were not your monkey and so what? Fame at $25,000 if we paid for a table, or $15000 to squeak up in the gallery, goes to a non-profit organisation selling us a load of old famous. Congradulations. If you voted for us, hope you noted your reasons. Your anonymous as judges, but your still music industry people. Were not coming. Your not paying attention. Outside the shit-stem is a real SEX PISTOL"

“Sugar’s got what it takes.” - 1966 pro-sugar ad.
Followup reading: How Sugar Works

While sugar essentially powers human cells, it’s still basically empty calories. It provides a quick boost of easily processed energy but little else. Sugary foods rarely have any of the other carbohydrates, proteins, vitamins and minerals necessary for a healthy diet. And as you’ll recall, any excess sugar in the body won’t be used as energy and will instead be stored as fat.
