Alan Moore does have a sheen of class. He’s a smart guy, and I’m sure there was a metaphoric level, I’m not denying that, but let’s face it. the main reason he was doing a super-hero comic was because he was working for a super-hero comic book company.

I played around with the idea of touring with a soul revue, with Smokey Robinson, Sam Moore, Darlene Love, people like that.
The records that I like, they have life and warmth and soul in them. Like the slap back on Scotty Moore’s guitar on ‘Mystery Train.’ You’re not gonna get that in a computer.

They were sort of like Talking Heads, jangly guitar, Feelies guitar. Anyway, it was love at first sight. His band broke up that night. And we started playing.

Sometimes, if you have a lot of history with a character and a lot of affection, it’s hard for you to do anything with that character. Like with Swamp Thing, for instance, I revere the Alan Moore run so much that it would be hard for me to do my own Swamp Thing. I care too much about the way it was done before.
I really like sardonicism and wit. I love the writing of Joy Williams and Lorrie Moore. I like Tina Fey, Amy Schumer.
These guys Steve Harvey and Cedric the Entertainer and Bernie Mac claim they’re the Kings of Comedy. They may be funny, but they ain’t no kings. That title is reserved for Rudy Ray Moore and Redd Foxx.
What I also love about Lorrie Moore stories is they take me a long time to read. They’re not easy for me because each sentence, I feel like, is so rich and dense, it just sends me off in a thousand directions.

It takes an entire book to tell you what it was like. To see Robert De Niro play your father – it’s not a simple answer. To see Julianne Moore play your mother.

I used a kind of gray-green early on in my practice for painting steel, to make it look more like it had a kind of patina to it, like copper and bronze and so on. The color I used was a Benjamin Moore color called 2012. My then-young daughter started calling me 2012 – it was my nickname.

People unacquainted with graphic novels, including journalists, tend to think of ‘Watchmen’ as a book by Alan Moore that happens to have some illustrations. And that does a disservice to the entire form.

Peter Cook and Dudley Moore were friends and the last people I expected would predecease me. They were, in a sense, casualties of fame.

Yes, The Persuaders, that was great fun because one of my favourite actors is Roger Moore.
Long before I started to write in earnest, Lorrie Moore taught me you could have a woman narrator who was funny and complex and even wrongheaded. She opened up a lot of space that me and a million other women rushed into.
I love Twitter, and my little corner of it is heavily weighted in favour of women, many of them writers: Caitlin Moran, India Knight, Lauren Laverne, Grace Dent, Deborah Orr, Marina Hyde, Suzanne Moore.

I love Joy Williams, Lorrie Moore: such great short-story writers.
I wrote the tunes and sang only nonsense words. Then came Moore and dressed them with the lyrics.

Demi Moore is a terrific woman and a hell of an actress.
Some of the writers I admire who seem very, very funny and very emotional to me can develop a closeness with the reader without giving too much of themselves away. Lorrie Moore comes to mind, as does David Sedaris. When they write, the reader thinks that they’re being trusted as a friend.
Many take the roles home with them and live the part. I’m quite happy to leave mine at the studio and return home as I left: simple old Roger Moore.

You can be Michael Moore and make ‘Fahrenheit 9/11,’ but that’s hitting people over the head, and a lot of Americans don’t like to be hit over the head. I want to make films that make people walk out and say, ‘Wow, I really question if this is all right.’
Biology is now accelerating at a pace faster than Moore’s Law.
‘A Walk to Remember’ was a huge movie for me. I thought Mandy Moore was the coolest thing that ever happened. And Shane West – man, did I have a crush on him.

The way Will Moore taught me, and the way I play it, the blues is just something different.

R Stevie Moore was obviously a huge influence and is still a very big influence in my life.
Michael Moore didn’t have to worry that anyone would misinterpret the title of his film, ‘Capitalism: A Love Story,’ because in Hollywood, no one loves capitalism. That’s too bad, because Hollywood is one of capitalism’s greatest successes.
Alan Moore is a prophetic writer.
Alan Moore’s writing is almost novelistic. It’s very intricate and wordy and smart.

The only way you can get Scotty Moore’s tone is with a big hollowbody guitar.

I remember meeting Roger Moore at my grandfather’s house as a young boy and being impressed because I was such a big fan of ‘007.’ But I was young, and I didn’t have a perception of what celebrity was or who my grandfather was… I still don’t, really.
Working with Dudley Moore was so hilarious. I don’t know how we got anything done because everybody was laughing so hard, but he was such a wonderful man, and he had a kindness and a musicality and a dearness to him that was triumphant.
I’m big on hair. I love Julianne Moore’s hair. That’s all I’d like: Julianne Moore hair.

I was into Alan Moore and Frank Miller. I was a teenager when all those books where coming out for the first time – ‘Watchmen,’ ‘V for Vendetta.’ It was a great time to get into comics.

Thomas Davis was a great man where poetry is concerned, and a better than Thomas Moore. All over Ireland his poetry is, and he would have done other things but that he died young.
‘Up in the Air’ is not a political movie. It won’t be mistaken for either a Michael Moore or Any Rand polemic on capitalism.
Is Michael Moore an honest documentarian? Honestly? I don’t think he is… The real discussion gets left behind the entertainment value.
I don’t see myself as a ‘black actor,’ I’m just Shemar Moore the actor. I’m very proud to be black, but I’m just as much black as I am white.
I’ve been influenced by so many great people , like Sam Moore, Wilson Pickett, Otis Redding, John Lee Hooker, B.B. King, so many great blues and soul artists that I completely revere. So it’s strange for me, actually, to hear somebody say, ‘Oh, I was deeply influenced by your music.’
Early influences included Lorrie Moore, Amy Hempel, Charles Baxter, Richard Ford, Alice Munro, Denis Johnson – writers who are important to me still and who I discovered through my teachers.
I read Carver. Julio Cortazar. Amis’s essays. Baldwin. Lorrie Moore. Capote. Saramago. Larkin. Wodehouse. Anything, anything at all, that doesn’t sound like me.
I have had lots of friends who’ve been affected by Aids and a very good friend of mine, Oscar Moore, died of Aids and I was with him in his last year quite a bit. And of course he was a man living in a very rich culture with a wealthy family who was able to afford health care.
It’s Moore’s Law, everything will be obsolete in 10 years – I’ll be obsolete in 10 years!
At my first Golden Globes, I met people I was very much enamored by: Julianne Moore, Meryl Streep, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. It was surreal to see them in person.

I went to M.I.T. in the summer of 1951 as a ‘C.L.E. Moore Instructor.’ I had been an instructor at Princeton for one year after obtaining my degree in 1950. It seemed desirable more for personal and social reasons than academic ones to accept the higher-paying instructorship at M.I.T.
I don’t really know if I’m writing the kind of roles that Meryl Streep and Julianne Moore would play. Jessica Lange on ‘American Horror Story’ is a little bit more my cup of tea.
My admiration for ‘Mary Tyler Moore’ is very, very big because they went out on top.
I don’t want to be a Michael Moore-style artist, which is not to disparage Michael Moore. But he seems rather unsuccessful at winning people over who don’t already agree with him.
Roy Moore was an embarrassment.
It’s not easy to convey to someone who doesn’t read comics just how Alan Moore has dominated the field since ‘Watchmen.’
