You kind of look at the timeline of what has happened to me and with having a pretty good rookie year and the second year getting the injury and Kurt Warner played himself into the Hall of Fame in the last 3 years.

When I was a teenager, the biggest heartthrob was Tab Hunter. He was in every movie out of Warner Bros. until he was exposed as gay, and his career faded. That was an object lesson. I knew I must protect my sexual orientation.
When I came back to it, we amicably separated from Warner Bros. I just picked up where I left off, trying to write the rest of this record. It took awhile to get out.
I have Time Warner, and I try to relax a lot and watch television a lot and everything. I really enjoy that. Listen to the radio.
I can’t stop watching black and white movies. I live in a world of Warner Brothers movies and all of that stuff from an older era, and I love them. I still love them. When I look at them, I sometimes think I was born in the wrong time.
I love Columbus Circle. I rebelled against the construction for a while because I go back to the ’70s. There was no Time Warner building. Now I’ve started to really like it.
‘Smoke On The Water’ was ignored by everybody to begin with. We only did it in the shows because it was a filler track from ‘Machine Head.’ But then, one radio station picked up on it, and Warner Bros. edited it down to about three and a half minutes.

The Flaming Lips have been on Warner Bros. forever, and certainly everything I heard growing up was on a major label in some way, from the Cure to Radiohead to Bjork.
The investor world that looks at studios as part of media companies will say that the studio business is supposed to be erratic. Not at our company. Not at Time Warner.
Island Records was the first record label to… acknowledge me. After that, quickly, Republic Records, and then Atlantic Records, Sony Records and Warner Bros. It was all the labels at once. It was absolutely insane, like, knowing that this many record labels were interested in me.

It’s interesting: John Calley at Warner Bros. helped me put ‘Alice’ together. It was very unusual back then for a studio to support an actress the way he backed and supported me. He even asked me if I wanted to direct the film, which I didn’t feel prepared to at that point.

I was a Charles Schulz kind of guy. I didn’t read comics books. The Warner Bros. guys were great – Chuck Jones and Friz Freleng.
I am a rereader. Quality is variety if you wait long enough. Barthes, Baudelaire, Benjamin, Celine, Duras, Faulkner, Fitzgerald, Melville: There is so much to revisit. ‘Ingrid Caven,’ by Jean-Jacques Schuhl, is always in rotation. I used to read ‘Morvern Callar,’ by Alan Warner, every year – I adored that book.
And Warner Bros. seems to be pretty much into re-releasing all of their catalog. So there’s the Warner Bros. stuff and the stuff that we have control over, we’re gradually re-releasing it. Some stuff we don’t have control over.
For me, David Warner isn’t just the future of Australian batting, he’s the future for cricket in general because he can excel in any form of the game. I’m excited just watching him.

When I came to Hollywood, I would take the opportunity to get to know George Stevens or Willy Wyler or Billy Wilder or Freddie Zinnemann. David Lean I got to know, of course, in London.

I was really disappointed that Warner Bros. didn’t think highly enough of my film or my filmmaking to ask me to make the new Superman.

If you are going to describe the history of animation, you’d look at the early Disney work, then ‘Bugs Bunny,’ ‘Road Runner’ and other Warner Brothers theatrical productions. But when you got to ‘Rocky and Bullwinkle,’ you’d see they were unique: They assumed you had a brain in your head.

You see a Clint Eastwood movie, and you might not know if it’s from Universal or Warner Bros. or another studio. He has affiliations with so many studios now, but there was a time when you’d just look at a movie and think, ‘Oh, that’s a Warner Bros. film.’
I remember the screen test for ‘Gossip Girl’ was on the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank. I was about 17 or 18 years old at the time. I remember driving onto the lot and going, ‘Oh my God. This is surreal.’

For my very first movie, ‘Roger and Me,’ I made it as part of my deal with Warner Brothers that the four people that were evicted in that film, that Warner Brothers would house – would pay their mortgage or their rent for the next two years to give them a chance to get on their feet.
I remember telling the head of Warner Brothers that if they’d just make a video for ‘Ol’ Red’… and if it didn’t work, they could drop me from the label.
