Anyone out there have a better idea?
The thing that influenced me most was the way Tommy played his trombone. It was my idea to make my voice work in the same way as a trombone or violin-not sounding like them, but "playing" the voice like those instrumentalists.
Success is often just an idea away.
I know a lot of people have asked the question: Is this God's judgment? I've no idea, and I don't think it is. Because good people lost homes. Churches were destroyed.
Keeping it simple was my idea, ... I wanted the recording to sound like way back, before they used even drums.
They loved the idea and I have been registered with them since September.
The idea is that any child will be amused by it.
Brain cells create ideas. Stress kills brain cells. Stress is not a good idea.
That's what New Orleans does. It's part of our DNA, the whole idea of going a little crazy to keep yourself sane.
What makes us discontented with our condition is the absurdly exaggerated idea we have of the happiness of others.
Neither man or nation can exist without a sublime idea.
Without a firm idea of himself and the purpose of his life, man cannot live, and would sooner destroy himself than remain on earth, even if he was surrounded by bread.
I think it's a wonderful idea and the animation and stories are terrific.
There's absolutely a consensus around the idea that they needed to cut costs at the magazine and that the decision they made today to invest in the magazine was the wrong one. They're investing a lot of money in a product that's at the end of its life cycle.
In the winter, he'd shovel our walks for us; just a great guy to us. We had no idea anything like this was going on.
The idea is use it or lose it, work out your brain cells so they can stay active and healthy.
We arranged a meeting in Los Angeles with big name stars, but I had to drop the idea. I wanted to film in the local Soweto dialect that only Soweto youth can speak and believed that shooting in any other language would dilute the impact of the film.
It took a tremendous amount of faith to conceive this idea, and then start it from scratch and make it happen.
When he presented it to us everyone got very excited and thought it was a great idea. This is unique in many ways. It's not themed like many cities have. For example, Norfolk has mermaids and they're really cute and fun. Nor is it like public art that is put in front of a building and stays there forever, because the pieces change out every year and are for sale. So it's like an art gallery in that respect.
The idea of using an off-the-shelf vehicle is that it already has that stuff in it. The automotive industry has spent a lot of money evaluating these chassis for safety and we can make use of that.
The whole idea is that the vehicle doesn't need to survive an attack, but the people do.
This was a small idea that grew wings. We've been so fortunate for the people who have come on their own to offer their friendship and support.
We created the theater, independently from the church, as a nonprofit organization. The idea is to create an umbrella, which we intend to have other programs underneath.
We had some fans ask for it and thought it was a good idea. You do whatever you can to make it a great atmosphere for everybody.
The difference from project to project is that departure point. In this case, it was really an abstract idea, an issue of citizenship, but it might be a Chekhov short story or a story from 'The Iliad.' You can really fit anything in there, but what's consistent is that the writer and the director are chosen, the actors are all present before the play begins.
