I’m a ‘frotteur,’ someone who likes to rub words in his hand, to turn them around and feel them, to wonder if that really is the best word possible.

That’s the rub about ‘Community’ – for all the high-concept cleverness, it really comes down to vulgar humanism, the dumbest kind of sentimental identification. We watch it because we like these people and we miss them when they don’t show up. They become part of the stories we tell ourselves.

Danny Carey
There’s too many actors in LA. I mean, I’ll go out there from time to time, but I always find it pretty soul-destroying. I don’t drive, and the people kind of rub me the wrong way. It’s just not home. You know? It’s not New York. It’s not… my town.
