"San Francisco isn’t in the same country as Lakeside anymore than New Orleans is in the same country as New York or Miami is in the same country as Minneapolis." "Is that so?" said Shadow, mildly. "Indeed it is. They may share certain cultural signifiers money, a federal government, entertainment it’s the same land, obviously but the only things that give it the illusion of being one country are the greenback, The Tonight Show, and McDonald’s."

We cannot keep thieves from looking in at our windows, but we need not give them Entertainment with open doors.thomas adam
We like to have a point of view in our stories, not an obvious moral, but a worthwhile theme. ...All we are trying to do is give the public good Entertainment. That is all they want.walt disney
For the mere purpose of Entertainment and the excitement of wonder, a display of brilliant electric experiments, even when performed in the most promiscuous and confused order, never fail to afford ample gratification to the curiosity. The studious observer, however, whose business is to inquire into the true beauties of the science, requires the most judicious arrangement of the phenomena that can possibly be devised, in order to facilitate his acquaintance with them, and with the laws by which they are displayed and associated with each other.william sturgeon
What is art is not likely to be decided for decades or longer after the work has been producedand then is often redecidedso we must not think badly if we regard literature as Entertainment rather than as transcendent enlightenment.Richard Condon
Americarather, the United Statesseems to me to be the Jewamong the nations. It is resourceful, adaptable, maligned, envied, feared, imposed upon. It is warm- hearted, overfriendly; quick-witted, lavish, colorful; given to extravagant speech and gestures; its people are travellers and wanderers by nature, moving, shifting, restless; swarming in Fords, in ocean liners; craving Entertainment; volatile.Edna Ferber
We've dominated sports and we've dominated Entertainment, but our problem has been we've never been able to dominate money.We still don't own our share of business, and it's killing us. It's killing our communities.
This day showed us that we are all completely voyeurs greedy for thrilling Entertainment no matter if this is real or not.uwe boll
Supermarket tabloids and celebrity gossip shows are not just innocently shallow Entertainment, but a fundamental part of a much larger movement that involves apathy, greed and hierarchy. Celebrity doesn’t have anything to do with art or craft. It’s about being rich and thinking that you’re better than everybody else.joseph gordon levitt
When Steve McClaren said that he wasn't in the Entertainment business, I asked him what he was doing in football, because the game is all about Entertainment. Fans go to watch their team win, sure, but they also want to enjoy the game while they're about itstuart hall
Japan is very much a TV-centred Entertainment industry. So when you talk about big stars in Japan, generally they are people who are on television. I work mostly in movies.chiaki kuriyama
I’m a movie star. Can I talk to my Entertainment lawyer?natasha lyonne
Why westerns get segregated into a genre in Hollywood, I don't know... It's just good Entertainment.tom selleck
The analysis of character is the highest human Entertainment.Isaac Bashevis Singer
It's mind-boggling to consider that movies this bad are actually committed to film. The poor quality of The Pest in almost every category humor, intelligence, creativity, and just plain Entertainment value ranks it somewhere between a bad infomercial and a local cable newscast. Rarely do I consider the act of seeing a movie to be a chore, but this kind of experience is the exception - Directed By Paul Miller.james berardinelli
Looking back at Batman from a distance after all the hype has dried up and the franchise has at least temporarily been abandoned it's easy to see the movie for what it is: a moderately diverting motion picture that should have been shorter and better paced. There are a lot of things wrong with Batman , but it still makes for decent Entertainment in the fine tradition of the typical low-intelligence summer movie. The best thing that can be said about Batman is that it led to Batman Returns , which was a far superior effort.james berardinelli
The more we learn of the true nature of non-human animals, especially those with complex brains and corresponding complex social behavior, the more ethical concerns are raised regarding their use in the service of man whether this be in Entertainment, as "pets," for food, in research laboratories, or any of the other uses to which we subject them.jane goodall
What initially attracted me to The Seventh Seal was that it had values and characteristics which I was familiar with in other art forms, most notably, the European novel and certain forms on English drama, and indeed, in relation to my rather academic interest in history -- not "history" in the normal sense, but history as a form of Entertainment . It might be a very unfashionable view but I believe that history is an amazing bank or reserve area of plots, characterisations, extraordinary events, etc.Peter Greenaway
This was part of Corporation 9592’s strategy; they had hired psychologists, invested millions in a project to sabotage movies yes, the entire medium of cinema to get their customers/players/addicts into a state of mind where they simply could not focus on a two-hour-long chunk of filmed Entertainment without alarm bells going off in their medullas telling them that they needed to log on to T’Rain and see what they were missing.neal stephenson
The only excuse for a novelist, aside from the Entertainment and vicarious living his books give the people who read them, is as a sort of second-class historian of the age he lives in. The "reality" he missed by writing about imaginary people, he gains by being able to build a reality more nearly out of his own factual experience than a plain historian or biographer can.john dos passos
The Information age is well upon us in seven major fields learning, diagnostics, management, physical planning, finance, Entertainment and communication.
Hollywood no longer offers Entertainment. Instead, activism has replaced acting, and sermons have supplanted stories. Instead of a good yarn, you get a yawn.
An exotic and irrational Entertainment, which has been always combated, and always has prevailed.samuel johnson
Wherever applause breaks out in the liturgy because of some human achievement, it is a sure sign that the essence of liturgy has totally disappeared and been replaced by a kind of religious Entertainment. Such attraction fades quickly - it cannot compete in the market of leisure pursuits, incorporating as it increasingly does various forms of religious titillation.
