Dangerous as these people may be, they are not so significant as thousands of other people who have never been mentioned. The American fascist would prefer not to use violence. His method is to poison the channels of public information. With a fascist the problem is never how best to present the truth to the public but how best to use the news to deceive the public into giving the fascist and his group more money or more power.” ~ Henry A. Wallace
  17. “I listened to a lot of The Stooges when I was writing “Oscillate,” imagining our hero moving through his days naturally embodying the spirit of a real punk.

  24. “It seems that the Internet is setting the standard for almost everything. I can’t imagine having something like punk rock happen where an entire culture is doing one thing. It’s not like all the kids in England are discovering the Stooges and the Ramones at the same time. All the kids in England are discovering every band that has ever existed. I can’t imagine there being one huge cultural moment like there was in the past. Everything ends up being kind of postmodern.” ~ Memory Tapes

But he’s not a regime stooge, he’s independent.” ~ Elliott Colla
  27. “Everybody thinks that 2-D is Damon, but none of the characters are based on any of us. 2-D is the classic stupid pretty boy singer. He’s the fall guy, the stooge. Everyone takes the piss out of him. He had a car accident where he went through the windscreen and ended up with two bumps on his head. It knocked some cool into him” ~ Jamie Hewlett
  28. “What else don’t women like besides the Three Stooges? Tom Waits. Being hurt physically or emotionally.” ~ Julie Klausner

  38. “Growing up, I missed the whole ‘Three Stooges’ thing. Either they weren’t on the station in my hometown, or we hadn’t bought a TV set yet, or they came to town too late for me. I’m pretty sure that at the right age, I would have loved them.” ~ Roger Ebert
  39. “When “Search and Destroy” by the Stooges came on as a Nike shoe commercial, I got physically sick. That song meant the world to me, and I didn’t feel this was the way it ought to be used.” ~ Jello Biafra

  41. “Three has always been tougher than Two. Think of any of your famous threesomes. The Three Stooges? Look at the anger there. My bet is that before Curly was born, Moe and Larry could play together for hours without even a single poke in the eye. Huey, Dewey, and Louie? Donald Duck never had a moment’s peace. The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly? I rest my case.” ~ Paul Reiser

  44. “Comedy is a weird thing. You have to understand, it’s the weirdest thing you can do. There’s no consensus.
