If you listen to a lot of music, it gradually seeps into your consciousness or your unconsciousness and comes out in your music.
On record dates like that I never felt too nervous because everything was really overdubbed. When we did that album, we were in the studio for probably a week, so you had a lot of opportunity to fix things.
I don’t remember what was going through my mind, but what was going through my body was fear and terror. I had been on the road with Johnny and working gigs and playing a lot of the organ clubs.
Every time I listen back to solos of mine I’ll hear something I like and then another phrase that I can’t stand. You have to live with what you play. And the recording medium puts that on us. When I play live gigs I don’t think so much like that.
Classical musicians do this all the time. They want perfection. So they piece things together. Eight bars of this and six bars of that. Glenn Gould said that with a recording he wanted to make perfect versions of pieces.
You’re just sort of searching for this “thing” and sometimes you get it and sometimes you don’t. All music is imperfect, but in jazz since you’re improvising, at least the way I play, I’m trying to follow my train of thought in a solo.
For the stage displays the first vigorous expression, as the natural thing and without conspicuous restraint, of private individuality.
The balance of private good and general welfare is at the bottom of civilized morals; but the morals of the Heroic Age are founded on individuality, and on nothing else.
With several different kinds of poetry to choose from, a man would decide that he would like best to be an epic poet, and he would set out, in conscious determination, on an epic poem.
Traditional matter must be glorified, since it would be easier to listen to the re-creation of familiar stories than to quite new and unexpected things; the listeners, we must remember, needed poetry chiefly as the re-creation of tired hours.
There is only one thing which can master the perplexed stuff of epic material into unity; and that is, an ability to see in particular human experience some significant symbolism of man’s general destiny.
The world knows of a vast stock of epic material scattered up and down the nations; sometimes its artistic value is as extraordinary as its archaeological interest, but not always.
The reason can only be this: heroic poetry depends on an heroic age, and an age is heroic because of what it is, not because of what it does.
The first epics were intended for recitation; the literary epic is meant to be read.
The epic poet has behind him a tradition of matter and a tradition of style; and that is what every other poet has behind him too; only, for the epic poet, tradition is rather narrower, rather more strictly compelling.
The epic poet collaborates with the spirit of his time in the composition of his work. That is, if he is successful; the time may refuse to work with him, but he may not refuse to work with his time.
The Border Ballads, for instance, and the Robin Hood Ballads, clearly suppose a state of society which is nothing but a very circumscribed and not very important heroic age.
By the general process of epic poetry, I mean the way this form of art has constantly responded to the profound needs of the society in which it was made.
An epic is not made by piecing together a set of heroic lays, adjusting their discrepancies and making them into a continuous narrative.
It is more difficult to keep the attention of hearers than of readers.
But the gravest difficulty, and perhaps the most important, in poetry meant solely for recitation, is the difficulty of achieving verbal beauty, or rather of making verbal beauty tell.
That is to say, epic poetry has been invented many times and independently; but, as the needs which prompted the invention have been broadly similar, so the invention itself has been.
Epic poetry exhibits life in some great symbolic attitude. It cannot strictly be said to symbolize life itself, but always some manner of life.
If epic poetry is a definite species, the sagas do not fall within it.
It seems difficult, sometimes, to believe that there was a time when sentiments now become habitual, sentiments that imply not only the original imperative of conduct, but the original metaphysic of living, were by no means altogether habitual.
No poet will ever take the written word as a substitute for the spoken word; he knows that it is on the spoken word, and the spoken word only, that his art is founded.
Poetry is the work of poets, not of peoples or communities; artistic creation can never be anything but the production of an individual mind.
But the development of human society does not go straight forward; and the epic process will therefore be a recurring process, the series a recurring series – though not in exact repetition.
Land in Hawaii is money. What I’m talking about here is ceded land – land that belonged to the kingdom and was ceded to the republic and then to the state when we achieved statehood.
You’re talking serious money already in the bank, and millions of dollars coming in every year.
When there wasn’t any money involved, for all intents and purposes, nobody gave a damn. But now the land, supposedly worthless, is seen for what it really is: an incredibly valuable asset.
Western concepts of ownership and privatization came in and clashed with that. So land began to be exchanged.
There was a queen that was overthrown here. So I was affected by all of that and felt profoundly grateful for the opportunity to live in Hawaii, and I set out at once to try to fit in.
So as soon as the land was worth something and there was money in the bank, all of a sudden everybody got interested in non-discrimination, in who’s really going to administer this stuff.
Land began to be seen as something to be owned privately and exploited for private interests, and never was entirely reconciled with the old ideas that land should be utilized in common for the good of all.
I remember saying to the chairman after serving the first year, “Why are we doing this? Why don’t the Hawaiians have control?” “Well, we have no mechanism to do it,” I was told.
A good portion of the airport is on ceded lands, and lease money was paid for that. So the state’s collecting lease money because all of a sudden “worthless” land now has an airport on it.
So there’s always been this clash between what is the public good – that which belongs to all of us in common – and what can be exploited for a private interest.
He told us he was going to take crime out of the streets. He did. He took it into the damn White House.
I don’t know what the future may hold, but I know who holds the future.
Christians should be ready for a change because Jesus was the greatest changer in history.
Bring on your tear gas, bring on your grenades, your new supplies of Mace, your state troopers and even your national guards. But let the record show we ain’t going to be turned around.
You may be assured that we won’t ever let your words die. Like the words of our Master, Jesus Christ, they will live in our minds and our hearts and in the souls of black men and white men, brown men and yellow men as long as time shall last.
Well, the hardest thing to do, as we know from our own experience on 9/11 is protect everything all the time.
Our forces will not be on the sidelines.
It’s clear to me now that we’ve got to reach out to the Arab Sunni community in particular in an effort to cause some moderate political activity to take place so they join the future of Iraq.
It’s also natural in that part of the world to blame what people view as the… as the most important authority in the region, and that currently is the United States of America.
Morale is good; troops are confident; leaders are capable.
Oh, the transition concerns me because as we move towards an important political event, it’s clear to me that the terrorists and insurgents will move as hard as they can to disrupt this process.
So, these political activities will create friction in and of themselves, and in this environment of friction there’ll be additional violence.
Undoubtedly, there are members of the former regime that are cooperating in some fashion and then there are extremists that are within Iraq that are cooperating with them.
In other words, for every 10 enemy you kill you bring on 20 new recruits to their anti-coalition cause then essentially you are working against yourself.
We’ve got to ensure that the quality and the capability of these forces will be good enough to withstand the challenges that the insurgents and the terrorists will present to the new Iraqi government.
Certainly our goal is to leave Iraq, but we can’t leave Iraq with our forces until we know that the Iraqi security forces are capable and efficient enough to defend the sovereignty of the nation.
Well, the reports are correct that we’re conducting very robust military operations on the Afghan side of the border in areas where we think al-Qaida is operating and Taliban remnants are.
You know as well as I do that counterinsurgency is a very nuanced type of military operation.
We’ll try to include Iraqi officers in our staffs. We will do everything we can to empower Iraqi security forces to stand up on their own and operate where they can alone.
But clearly the fact that we’ve gone from zero Iraqi security forces on duty in May to up to 200,000 today is an enormous accomplishment, but it’s not enough.
And so I think that if the person has the funds, the network, and the equipment to do this, and also the experience, which is the key factor, then they can be quite deadly.
As far as Zarqawi is concerned, there is a network of extremists; it’s not just Zarqawi.
I think what actually works best is local-level individual targeting of key leadership nodes.
But all that having been said, you can’t, in a city of a million people like Karbala, or 5 million like Baghdad, you can’t be in all places at all times.
I think you will see a lot of strains develop in the political process that will result in violence everywhere in the country – but it’s controllable, it’s workable and it will lead to a much better future for these people.
But I am satisfied that the information that we have that this is the work of Zarqawi, is accurate.
But the key shift in focus will be from counter-insurgency operations to more and more cooperation with Iraqi security forces and to building Iraqi security capacity.
But the truth of the matter is that there is there is an opportunity for them to participate in the economic and political future of the country and certainly in the security life of the country.
Capturing any member of any terrorist cell or any insurgent cell that we may happen to come across is always very, very valuable, and the thing that interests me is that in most instances after a time people talk and they tell us what they know.
Clearly the Secretary of Defense, my boss, would like nothing better than to get Osama bin Laden and to get… to ensure the complete defeat of al-Qaida, because we know that al-Qaida is planning operations against the United States even as we speak here.
I think you also understand that one of the key things that’s got to be done in Iraq is to build a mentality of understanding that the military needs to be subordinate to civilian control and respectful of its own people.
Being on the run, having to change the way that you do business, being unable to plan in a safe and secure environment, always looking over your shoulder, knowing that some day somebody’s going to knock on your door and it’s going to be your last.
But as the Pope has a long arm, which might reach me in France, I have gone a little out of the way to tell him the plain truths contained in these pages.
Marriage, in life, is like a duel in the midst of a battle.
It was in the Papal States that I studied the Roman Question. I traveled over every part of the country; I conversed with men of all opinions, examined things very closely, and collected my information on the spot.
I have been further enlightened by the conversation and correspondence of some illustrious Italians, whom I would gladly name, were I not afraid of exposing them to danger.
I fight fairly, and in good faith.
There are certain men and women who, from the minute they step in front of a camera, that’s exactly where they belong. Connery’s one.
I’m not going to just say nice things about everybody unless I mean it.
Milos said, You’re my first choice. From my point of view, that doesn’t pay the rent. I said, Tell me what I have to do next because I’m busy painting my kitchen.
People desire power. I don’t know why they want it so. It seems to me it implies a hugely superior intellect which separates them from most of the populace.
Suddenly I was the man who got the part that every actor in the English language was trying to get. I was really scared. I had talked the talk, and now I had to walk the walk. For three days, I couldn’t answer the phone.
I’m just having a wonderful time. It’s an interesting thing that I’m very comfortable with this material and I don’t know why. Maybe it’s because I did MacBeth.
The idea that you can make love and not war really is pretty neat. That thing in Korea, the thing in Israel – that’s all over the world. There must be a new way of thinking.
If these men decided that they have to go in there and fight, I want them to send their own children and grandchildren. I want them to not send a bunch of strangers’ kids in there to fight and die.
There is one confrontation scene toward the end of the picture. In the middle of the scene, I thought, That’s Sean Connery! I don’t know how else to describe Sean Connery. I still feel that way.
Whenever there were parties, I wasn’t invited because I began to be like that character. In a way, that contributed to the success of the performance.
With Connery, he does act. He is in complete command. He completely trusts the person first, then the instrument. I’ve worked with his son also, on a picture in Russia.
With Dick Smith there, and the words of Peter Shaffer… they’ve got to be the most beautiful descriptions in music ever written on film or in literature. And we could hear the music accompanying the words… What more can you ask for?
Woody Allen sets are very quiet. Extraordinary sense of power from a man who doesn’t do anything except just stand there.
The difficulty is capturing surprise on film.
I don’t want to talk in terms of miracles. I think this is a very serious situation. But I do want to talk in terms of Bush becoming a man of the hour, and I think this is way to do it.
All the stuff that you visualized that was going to work so beautifully, you discover is trashed, so you jump to something else.
Arnold Schwarzenegger, I don’t know if you’d call him a great actor, but he’s amazing in terms of his presence, and he is interesting enough that you want to watch him.

I acted my heart out.
I’m a very proud actor.

I just throw it out and see what happens. If it sounds and feels right, then I continue.
I love parties. I love a good time.
I really like to experiment. That’s the only way I can work. It’s instinctive.
I think creativity is spiritual. I absolutely believe that.
I trust that the president will try, just give it one more shot, some revolutionary way of not doing this, of bringing all those kids back home safely.
I’d like President Bush to get a gun in his hands. I’ll go with him. I can’t think of anything better than to die in place ‘s just beginning their lives.
I’d like President Bush to think maybe there’s another way to think, that maybe Kissinger was wrong when he says we had to go in there because he was wrong about Vietnam.
As much preparation as I had made for the old man Salieri, gestures and so on, the fact is after sitting for hours, your movements are kind of slow.
A considerable number of persons are able to protect themselves against the outbreak of serious neurotic phenomena only through intense work.
I always wondered what hearing one’s own obituary might sound like, and I sort of feel like I may have just heard part of it at least.
Scholars and historians have dubbed the last 100 years the American Century, and I think there can be little doubt that the Council on Foreign Relations helped to make it so.

Many have changed so much that they have lost the magic of the dream that carried them on their own bootstraps.
You can’t walk alone. Many have given the illusion, but none have really walked alone. Man is not made that way. Each man is bedded in his people, their history, their culture, and their values.
Joseph and his mother come from the black kings who were before the white man.
With Shakespeare and poetry, a new world was born. New dreams, new desires, a self consciousness was born. I desired to know to know myself in terms of the new standards set by these books.

In the past few years I have begun the process of becoming a new man.
If I read the articles about me, and I didn’t know me, I would think I was Satan.
I did this within a philosophical framework, and a moral and legal framework. And I have been turned into a cartoon of the greatest villain in the history of lobbying.
I am much chastened and profoundly remorseful. I can only hope that the Almighty and those whom I have wronged will forgive me my trespasses.
As a result, I’ve been portrayed as a cynical barbarian preying on the very clients I was charged to defend.
This is really high on the priority list of tribal concerns. This is a cash cow in many circumstances, and tribes are concerned about protection of tribal assets.
If my life was a song it would be ‘Who Let The Dogs Out’.
There’s got to be a backbone, there’s got to be a skeleton to the whole way I perform, but you never want to hit the same note twice during a performance, I think. I think it’s always got to be fresh so it doesn’t bore me, and I always want to go out on edge.
My favorite type of music to sing to would be rock and roll, Tenacious D, Led Zeppelin, some Queen – I love all of them. I love singing to them because they’re all just great voices. I love listening to very obscure jazz.
You know I want to sing for people, I want to jazz people up I want to make new music that they’ve never heard.
If you’re a good singer, you’re going to make anything sound good.
I love making music, I love composing on my computer, just making crazy ethnic slack orchestral tracks, that’s one of my fun things.
I love listening to Radio Head’s ‘Everything in its Right Place’ because it’s all major chords, it makes you feel really good. It’s soothing, it’s got a beautiful voice, crazy textures. When I’m down I listen to that song and it really makes me feel good.
I hope America sees I am a goofy guy andI’m kind a crazy, I hope they see that I am a musician aswell, that I have music all around my body – I’m just exfoliating music, and I just hope America sees that.
I had no idea I could make it this far. And the fact that they told me I made it this far and that America is going to vote for me, I freaked out.
I’m a car singer, in fact sometimes I pretend to take my dog out for a walk, and I’ll just drive him around and start singin’.
In my spare time I like watching TV, laying on the couch, just chillin’.

Some people think I’m a total moron and I would hope most people think I’m very good at what I do.
I’m not going to let people get away with either a dishonest or inaccurate premise to what we’re talking about because I think that does the viewer a disturbance.
I think that in the end, a talk show is a very different animal.
I read our emails every day and I know there are people out there who think I’m awful.
But doing what I do, you will never get unanimity of people.
I think by laying it out for the viewer I’m avoiding the issue of bias.
I never said I had no idea about most of the things you said I said I had no idea about.
There isn’t any way for the people of Nicaragua to find out what’s going on in Nicaragua.
The question at the end of the day was, the courts having found there was no defense, a producer about to go to jail, should CBS in effect tell the producer go to jail even though there is no law at all that we can use to get you out of jail?
There are some circumstances in which the First Amendment interest comes up against another interest that is really important and in which we have to make a decision in a particular case as to which is more important.
This is going right to the police. So, it’s a very dangerous precedent.
Were this not Texas, were there not a state where there were no protections at all and where the law was clear on that, I think CBS and Mary Mapes and Dan Rather and all of us had a very good chance of winning. So this is an ongoing battle about an issue of principle.
CBS exhausted the Texas courts. They went from the trial court to the intermediate court to the highest court.
CBS fought very hard on this because it believed and believes that there’s a principle at stake here. The principle is that Dan Rather doesn’t work for the police, and that people that speak to Dan Rather understand that he’s a journalist and not a police agent.
Here we have a situation where a defendant in a case agrees to an interview with Dan Rather. It happened to be not confidential. But it was an interview with Dan Rather.
I am really impressed by lawyers who write books and tell us that they never lost a case. Most lawyers who have never lost a case have not had enough hard cases. But there are very difficult cases out there.
I just had the sense that at least the books that I had read about law just didn’t really have enough of that.
I know a lot of reporters certainly will go to jail to defend confidential sources. Some have even gone to jail for an issue like this. But I can’t say that’s the norm.
I mean the idea of this is that it’s a good thing for the public to hear interviews like this and that there will be an inevitable amount of fewer interviews if people that the press talks to wind up thinking, well, it’s not really a CBS correspondent.
I really did try to write it so that an educated public that cares about issues like this doesn’t have to be a lawyer and can read it and understand it.
I really try at least to come back and answer the question as to whether that was really the best way to do that and was I really thinking straight and how did my opponents behave and how did the judges behave was needed.
I still owe a duty of loyalty to my clients and former clients, so I cannot specify which clients I did not especially find congenial, but the cause was the same.
I think that it is important for people to understand that whether a good-guy or a bad-guy wins a case is less important than what the law is that the case results in.
I think that the very fact that CBS fought and fought and fought in Texas, in New York.
No other country in the world gives protection like that, but it is not absolute protection. People sometimes meet that high burden and win libel suits, and in those cases I think they ought to win.
When I began we did not really have a lot of First Amendment law. It is really surprising to think of it this way, but a lot of the law – most of the law that relates to the First Amendment freedom of the press in America – is really within living memory.
The government would be able to go to court with respect to newspaper articles, broadcast pieces and the like that they thought were bad or harmful or even against the government and try to block them.
I think we have some serious problems now, but, if you look back over the last thirty or forty years that my book deals with, I think we are in better shape now than we would have been if all of those cases had not come down.
So sometimes the facts are good and sometimes the facts are bad, the important thing from the point of view of a principle as broad and important as freedom of speech is that the courts articulate and set forth in a very protective way what those principles are.
My role in it was not as central as it was in some of the later cases considering I was younger then and I was playing a role of co-counsel on the case.
It’s not like learning how to hit a curve ball in baseball.
It just seems to be a human trait to want to protect the speech of people with whom we agree. For the First Amendment, that is not good enough. So it is really important that we protect First Amendment rights of people no matter what side of the line they are on.
It is within the last quarter century or thirty years. And a lot of that law has turned out to be very, very protective of the press and the public’s right to know.
It is not to benefit CBS, not to benefit its reporters. On this one, the entire basis of it is this is a way to get more information, more important information to the public. And that’s why so many states recognize this.
It has something to do with the facts and the law and who the judges are. So I think lawyers sometimes exaggerate their role in winning and losing. Lawyers do have a role, and a major role, but they’re not the only players in this game.
If the word gets out, if the perception exists that by speaking to a CBS journalist you are, therefore, inevitably, immediately speaking to the police, I don’t think there’s any doubt but that people won’t talk. And, therefore, the public won’t learn.
I would say that the Pentagon Papers case of 1971 – in which the government tried to block the The New York Times and The Washington Post that they obtained from a secret study of how we got involved in the war in Vietnam – that is probably the most important case.
I try to do that in this book without preaching – to try to do as you just said that you really have to defend the First Amendment rights of everybody.
The principle though remains the same, and the important thing is CBS fought hard, very hard, to protect that principle and will fight again.
John Updike is always fun. And one of my former students, Tom Pynchon. And Harold Bloom, another former student.
When something startlingly new comes up, young people, especially, seize it. You can’t complain about that. I think its heyday has passed, but it’s had an effect and will continue to have an effect.
When I was a graduate student, the leading spirits at Harvard were interested in the history of ideas.

Acting is the work of two people-it’s only possible when you have the complicity, the help, even the manipulation of a director.

I like men with some belly who are a little over the hill.
