I used to feel guilty about owning a console.
I used to get taxed on my allowance. Yeah, I've been taxed since I was a little kid. And at the end of the year I had to pick a charity to donate my taxes to.
People called rock & roll 'African music.' They called it 'voodoo music.' They said that it would drive the kids insane. They said that it was just a flash in the pan - the same thing that they always used to say about hip-hop.
I used my imagination to make the grass whatever color I wanted it to be.
I've never crashed a wedding. When I was a kid I, of course, used to crash parties. Crashing a wedding is difficult though because you have to have the suit, and you have to have information in case someone catches you. You have to know at least some names and something.
Successive American presidents have turned a blind eye to piles of evidence that Saudi money is being used to foment holy war against America.
All he cares about is going out there with his Jack Daniels bottle. Nothing has changed. That's kind of sad. If David was doing better than he used to be, then that would be different. But it was a joke and he made it that way.
Almost every month, I have a day where I get stuck in the mud of me. I used to blame hormones and PMS. After I hit 50, I blamed the lack of hormones. But men get stuck, too, so it must simply be the human condition.
I can't drink whiskey like I used to back then, that's for sure.
I used to fantasize that Paul McCartney would marry my sister.
I remember when you used to have your profession on your passport and I always thought that being a painter was the best one to be, because my heroes were Goya and Francis Bacon.
Facial recognition, completely unmonitored, can be used for very bad things. It can be used for stalking, for example.
We used to go around tipping outhouses over, or turning over corn shocks on Halloween. Anything to be mean.
When I was a child, I had wax in my ears. Dad didn't take me to the doctor, he used me as a night light.
Moral power is probably best when it is not used. The less you use it the more you have.
In history, psychedelic plants were used by priests and shamans with a desire to discover the interior.
When I was a child, my father used to take me for walks, often along a river or by the sea. We would pass people fishing, perhaps reeling in their lines with struggling fish hooked at the end of them. Once I saw a man take a small fish out of a bucket and impale it, still wriggling, on an empty hook to use as bait.
I used to hate looking in the mirror. I've grown up into myself and now I'm happy with the way I look.
I'm 86 and my doctor used to tell me to slow down - at least he did until he dropped dead.
When I put some Tabasco on things, and there's really nothing in Tabasco, it's not bad for you in any way, so that's kind of become my substitute. Now you got to get used to a hot mouth, but that's okay.
I used to be obsessed with Pearl Jam, but I love having pink hair and kind of looking like a Barbie.
I'm only two years older than Brad Pitt, but I look a lot older, which used to greatly frustrate me. It doesn't anymore. I don't have to fit into that category and get trounced by Tom Cruise and Brad.
I used to play ultimate Frisbee, and I just got a reputation for making popcorn at parties. I don't mean to brag on myself, but I make the popcorn in the pot, and it comes out fine every time.
Let me say this: I believe closing Guantanamo is in our Nation's national security interest. Guantanamo is used not only by al-Qaida, but also by other nations, governments, and individuals - people good and bad - as a symbol of America's abuse of Muslims, and it is fanning the flames of anti-Americanism around the world.
What's great in the modern world is that it's becoming easier and easier for people to create without having access to large sums of money. They need access to certain technologies, but the cost is far less than it used to be.
