Quote of the Day: Adam Goldberg

Borrowing a page from one of my new favorite blogs, CocoaChanel, I’ve decided to establish a quote of the day. It’s a happy medium for moments when I will not have time to wax poetic here, but I still want you to know I exist in some shape and form on the Internets. Today’s quote comes from neurotic actor, Adam Goldberg.

Many people remember him from “Dazed and Confused”, “Saving Private Ryan” and for those who have HBO, “Entourage.” But he will forever be in my memory because of his role in one of my favorite movies “Higher Learning” as the roommate of skinhead convert Remy.

In an interview featured on The Daily Beast, the reclusive–not for spiritual reasons, Goldberg talks about life on the set of the ABC police drama, “The Unusuals”, life outside of that which consists of gathering info via restaurant menus slipped under the door of his Brooklyn apartment–I know the feeling all too well, and why he’ll never be a twit use Twitter. The latter is my quote for the day because I love to know that there are other Twitter skeptics in the world. 

 

“It’s this desperate need to be heard, and this desperate need by others to live vicariously though people who desperately need to be heard. It’s the marriage of full-tilt narcissism and full-tilt voyeurism that has finally collided in 140 words.”
