I never saw any of my dad’s stories. My mother said he had piles and piles of manuscripts.

I looked out into the audience, saw dozens of faces I knew well – LGBTQ folks, mostly – all avid comics readers and superhero fans and DC supporters, and it just hit me: Why was this so impossible?

I never saw a movie until I was 10.
I believe I can even yet remember when I saw the stars for the first time.

I love ‘Sunday in the Park with George.’ I saw that when I was just, just starting theater school, and I remember singing ‘Finishing the Hat’ or at least reading the lyrics to ‘Finishing the Hat’ and other songs from ‘Sunday in the Park with George’ to my mom to try to explain why I wanted to be an artist.

‘Wonder Showzen’ is one of my favorite shows of all time. When I first saw it, I thought it was so funny and new and original and edgy and insane and subversive. I didn’t know comedy could do that. It redefined what I thought you could do with a TV show.

Not trying to be arrogant, but if I walked down the street and a girl saw me, she might take a look back because maybe I’m good-looking, right?
I saw myself as a trailblazer in the 1980s as a female lawyer in the City. It was exciting, as women were outnumbered by men five to one. But while I had this sense of trailblazing, in reality, I wasn’t pushing boundaries; it was just a personal myth I’d created, as I was doing a job I wasn’t enjoying.
Not a ‘Mad Men’ guy. Never got into it. I’m kind of a contrarian that way. If something gets too popular too fast before I can get on it, I just get really annoyed.

More people saw me in one episode of ‘Cheers‘ than would ever see me in a play.

I think I was the best baseball player I ever saw.
People saw me as just a singer – yeah, a pretty face who could sing – and not more than that.

The first time I saw Istvan Szabo’s ‘Mephisto,’ I came out and I was in shock. I was shaking.
I started ‘Outer Banks,’ because there’s so much hype around it. I saw one episode and I didn’t really continue, but I got to keep going at it. Two of the actors on there were also in ‘Stranger Things,’ and all my friends always ask, ‘Oh my God, you know Madelyn Cline. She was in ‘Stranger Things’ too.’
The last time I saw Dad alive, he was in the hospital. He was watching ‘Hell Drivers,’ a crummy B-movie about truckers, on TV and reading the ‘Daily Record.’ This seems scarcely believable, but I actually said, ‘Dad, you’ve not got long to go – don’t you think you should be imbibing the culture a bit more?’
While ‘Twilight”s popularity was undeniable among both the teenagers they were aimed at and middle-aged women who flocked to the series in droves, Meyer has drawn her share of criticism for her writing. Some feminist critics assailed what they saw as Bella’s mooning over her vampire lover.
I was a big fan of the more Mexican-based wrestlers when I started watching WCW, and I saw guys like Silver King, Eddie Guerrero, and Rey Mysterio.

When we went to Belfast we saw some beautiful countryside and coastlines.
The Great Depression of the 1930s saw more American unmarried women working from nine to five, mostly in repetitive, boring, subordinate, dead-end jobs. But the number of working women doubled between 1870 and 1940. During World War II it doubled once again.

I never saw myself as an individual who had any particular leadership powers.

My big break was really Liz Meriwether saw me in a movie called ‘Paper Heart’ and really liked it, and then saw me in a movie called ‘Ceremony‘ because she knew Max Winkler and said, ‘I want you to be in ‘No Strings Attached,’ but you gotta audition for it.’ From that it was easier for her to get me in ‘New Girl.’

I once saw a forklift lift a crate of forks. And it was way to literal for me.

I first saw Arnold Palmer when I was just a kid and he came to Columbus to play in a tournament. I watched him on the driving range hit balls that day. We went on to become great friends.
As in an explosion, I would erupt with all the wonderful things I saw and understood in this world.
I never wanted to be a model. My modelling career was nothing but a stepping stone to my acting career and that’s all I ever saw it as. A pointless rock in the river that has to be stepped on in order to get to the meaningful oasis of acting.
I did the plays in middle school. I was cast as a gate in my fourth grade play, and every year I got a bigger role. Then, in 7th grade, I played Smike in ‘Nicholas Nickleby,’ and the casting director saw me and asked me to audition for a movie. That movie led to me getting ‘Moonrise Kingdom.’
I’m realizing for the first time, your life goes on while you’re trying to pursue this career. I saw my career as everything. But you have this life, too. Living your life fully, you come to know yourself better. You’ll find the place for it.
The new generation doesn’t know anything about me except for what they saw in’ Easy Rider.’
Heroes are people who are all good with no bad in them. That’s the way I always saw Joe DiMaggio. He was beyond question one of the greatest players of the century.
When I hit 16, I got a scooter to ride to school. It was bright pink, and I saw on the ownership papers that Jonathan Ross once owned it. My friends slated me for it because of the colour, but it was cool. My father used to ride, and my mother’s boyfriend has a bike, so we’re a bit of a biker family.
Growing up, I always saw the hypocrisy of the Catholic church. The history speaks for itself, and I grew incredibly frustrated and angry. I essentially just put that into my words.
I never saw a lawyer yet who would admit he was making money.
When ‘Mean Girls’ came out, I was 15. So I saw that movie and was like, ‘That is so funny.’ But it still has that fluffy, happy ending, and that doesn’t happen in high school.
I saw ‘Taxi Driver,’ and ‘Taxi Driver’ kind of saved my life. The scene where Robert De Niro is looking at himself in the mirror saying, ‘You talkin’ to me? You talkin’ to me? Who the hell else are you talkin’ to?’ That’s the scene that changed my life by changing my attitude about acting.
If anything good came out of 9/11, to me, was that people were so cynical about the world – all you hear about on the news is all the bad stuff everyday, but what was refreshing to me was after that, you saw how many good people there are out there. For every one bad one, there’s a thousand good ones.
Yeah, it’s tough being smart and sexy, too. I have to say, I’m really not that attractive. Until I met my husband, I could not get a date. I promise you it’s true. My husband Jeff Richmond saw a diamond in the rough and took me in.
That was the first time I saw a horse start from a kneeling position!
This is the most joyful day that ever I saw in my pilgrimage on earth.
My mother was a doctor, and I grew up with her in a little apartment belonging to my grandmother, because the Soviet Union never saw fit to let our family have its own apartment.
I grew up in Sierra Leone, in a small village where as a boy my imagination was sparked by the oral tradition of storytelling. At a very young age I learned the importance of telling stories – I saw that stories are the most potent way of seeing anything we encounter in our lives, and how we can deal with living.
When I was a boy, I always saw myself as a hero in comic books and in movies. I grew up believing this dream.
Bowdoin was the first place that I fell in love with. When I visited, I just had never been to a place with that many resources and that much access to information. That was stuff that you saw in movies. I didn’t know that existed in real life.
I never saw myself so much as an actor. I wanted to be a cartoonist like Charles M. Schulz and create my own world and be able to have a studio at home and not commute and be able to be with my family.
I became alienated from this religious upbringing, and started making music. I wanted to be a big star. All those things I saw in the films and on the media took hold of me, and perhaps I thought this was my god: the goal of making money.
When I was a kid, the only way I saw movies was from the back seat of my family’s car at the drive-in.
Did a man really walk on the moon? I saw plenty of documentaries on it, and I really wondered.
I was six years old when I saw my first Godard movie, eight when I first experienced Bergman. I wanted to be a director when I was fourteen.
I never saw a contradiction between the ideas that sustain me and the ideas of that symbol, of that extraordinary figure, Jesus Christ.
Many more people saw me on TV than will ever get to see me on stage, but I do love being in the same room as the people I’m telling the story to.
Those who had demanded no more than an end to the bombing of North Vietnam and a commitment to negotiations saw their demands being realized, and lapsed into silence.
Even as a kid, I saw the world in my own way and thought most things that were different were beautiful and magical. Even things that other people thought were horrifying and disgusting and weird.
I’ve had a great love for Al Pacino’s work since I first saw him on the stage doing ‘The Indian Wants the Bronx‘ in the early ’70s. His work is remarkable. He’s the real thing.
Absurdity is what I like most in life, and there’s humor in struggling in ignorance. If you saw a man repeatedly running into a wall until he was a bloody pulp, after a while it would make you laugh because it becomes absurd.
I was chef to the French Presidents between ’56 and ’59, finished with de Gaulle, and during de Gaulle I remember serving Eisenhower, Nehru, Tito, Macmillan; those were the heads of state at the time. I never saw anyone. No one would ever, ever, ever come to the kitchen. You couldn’t even see them.
The challenge as we saw in the Nigerian project was to restructure the economy decisively in the direction of a modern free market as an appropriate environment for cultivation of freedom and democracy and the natural emergence of a new social order.
If I was discovered by anyone, it would be Stephen O’Neil, who saw me in a play at Williamstown and introduced me to my team who I’m still with today. He was the first person to introduce me to the film and TV world. Other than that, I just assumed I would be a theater actor my whole life.
I had a blast, but I still wonder sometimes why they saw me as the perfect guy for this strange character.
We suddenly saw how people reacted in the event of massive social upheaval, and the way that the little problems in your life don’t go away. You don’t stop being frightened of spiders just because the world’s blown up.
I don’t see the wisdom in modern politicians that I once saw in men like Dean Acheson, David Bruce, or George Marshall. In my day, the northeastern establishment dominated foreign policy formulation, but the composition and distribution of our population is very different today.
I did take part in a couple of Vishy Anand’s training camps. The experience has truly been invaluable. I saw from up close the level of preparation that I should be striving for.
I saw Farrah Fawcett originally when she and her boyfriend, Lee Majors, came over to my house for a birthday party that I was having for my ex-wife, Leigh Taylor-Young.
If I hadn’t left South Africa, I felt I was at risk of being pigeonholed. I looked around and saw actors who, 10 to 15 years into their careers, were still playing stereotypical Afrikaans characters, stereotyped Indian characters. That was not something that I wanted for myself.
No economic system is perfect. But the American Free Enterprise system has empowered millions of people in the past. I know, because I saw it with my own eyes.
Patrice O’Neal is the best comic I ever saw.
As governor, I saw the link between economic prosperity and the ability to acquire knowledge.
I always saw politics as an expansion of my role as a mom.
My mom tells me the first show we saw was ‘The Secret Garden,’ but I don’t remember that.
You see Michelangelo and Picasso and you read literature. I had some innate inchoate yearning for that, but I never really saw where I would fit in. That’s called art. And then something happened to pop music, which is that it became art under the hand of the Beatles, the Stones, and Bob Dylan and some other people.
When I finish games, I want to have the feeling that I helped my team as much as I could, and the fans saw I was determined to win.
I loved being in the film called ‘Carnal Knowledge’ – the one with Jack Nicholson, which was very dark but a really brilliant movie. I loved being in ‘The Ritz.’ ‘The Ritz’ I think is just hilarious. I just saw it again recently and by God, it’s still funny!
I was having an argument with my stepfather, and he was like, ‘Why don’t you join the Marine Corps?’ And I was like, ‘Noooo! Well, maybe, actually… ‘ I went and saw the recruiter, who was like, ‘Are you on the run from the cops? Because we’ve never had someone want to leave so fast.’
The last time I saw him he was walking down lover’s lane holding his own hand.
It’s a very typical UFO sighting. Carter said it changed color and, in the physical report, described it as being about the size of the moon. And he saw it with about twenty-five other people.
When I was little… I didn’t relate to princesses. I saw Maleficent, and I just thought she was so – she was so elegant.
I don’t know what it was, maybe the movie theaters in my immediate surrounding neighbourhood in Burbank, but I never saw what would be considered A movies.
I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.
I remember when I first came around, the computer-generated stuff was pretty wicked. I was like, ‘Wow!’ but I feel like then for the longest time, we saw so much of it, after a while, you might as well just be watching an animated movie.
My grandparents got married at a very young age, and a lot of what I think about marriage is based on their relationship. I watched them over the years and saw how they dealt with everything together, as a team.
If people recognize me from ‘The Vampire Diaries,’ they just give me that look that’s like, ‘I think I know you. I think I saw you boxing in 1912, but I’m not sure,’ because it was such a short-lived run.
I was 18, at art school, and saw this cute boy playing banjo. I was obsessed. I taught myself how to play. I listened to a lot of country and just messed around. The second song I wrote on the banjo was ‘Good to Be a Man.’ That what’s got me signed.
I don’t like watching television too much; it tires me out for some reason. But I saw a fair bit of ‘Game of Thrones’ because it was so good. I mostly watched episodes that I wasn’t in.
Musically, I didn’t relate to Berlin. There seemed to be a lot of machine music made there – I don’t think I saw a stringed instrument in two years.
Drag Race’ was, like, my outlet and finally being able to see myself in television and that was through Manila Luzon, who was a ‘Drag Race’ contestant. Manila was the first Asian queer person that I ever saw on mainstream media and ‘Drag Race’ really did that for me.
I saw Jesus walk into my bedroom.
I looked below and saw my people there, and all were well and happy except one, and he was lying like the dead – and that one was myself.
Most of the women I saw on TV didn’t seem like people I actually knew. They felt like ideas of what women are.
My fiance and I had a few problems working through some of the things that he saw me say and do on the ‘Surreal Life.’ Considering the company that I was in, Ron Jeremy and Trishelle from ‘The Real World,’ I think I was pretty tame.
I saw Tina Turner do ‘Proud Mary’ on TV, and it was so electrifying and such a unique experience. I remember crying out of excitement, and I knew that I wanted to be a performer and make people feel excited and moved, and that’s why I gravitated towards it.
It took five days to drive to Los Angeles by myself. I listened to Abbey Road for six hours at a time and watched the desert open up before me again and again. I saw the sun set and rise at the Grand Canyon, and I sang out over the cliffs, picked up tumble weeds along the way and threw them in the back of my car.
But when you have bad governance, of course, these resources are destroyed: The forests are deforested, there is illegal logging, there is soil erosion. I got pulled deeper and deeper and saw how these issues become linked to governance, to corruption, to dictatorship.
Over time, there’s a very close correlation between what happens to the dollar and what happens to the price of oil. When the dollar gets week, the price of oil, which, as you know, and other commodities are denominated in dollars, they go up. We saw it in the ’70s, when the dollar was savagely weakened.
I saw that publishing all over the world was deeply constrained by self-censorship, economics and political censorship, while the military-industrial complex was growing at a tremendous rate, and the amount of information that it was collecting about all of us vastly exceeded the public imagination.
Ted Williams was the greatest hitter I ever saw, but DiMaggio was the greatest all around player.
Nobody brainwashed me with God in my head or anything. I just saw this new reality, and I felt like I’ve been blinded, and I finally took the blindfolds off.
I see things with my own eyes, just as if they were the first eyes that ever saw, and then I set about to tell, as best I can, just what I’ve seen.
I never worked hard until I got to the Howard Law School and met Charlie Houston… I saw this man’s dedication, his vision, his willingness to sacrifice, and I told myself, ‘You either shape up or ship out.’ When you are being challenged by a great human being, you know that you can’t ship out.
Right from the beginning, I always strived to capture everything I saw as completely as possible.
Robert Duvall saw me playing at a restaurant in Louisiana and invited me to be an extra in his movie ‘The Apostle.’ He gave me a guitar for my sixth birthday, and I thought that was the coolest thing in the world.
Living is like tearing through a museum. Not until later do you really start absorbing what you saw, thinking about it, looking it up in a book, and remembering – because you can’t take it in all at once.
My grandmother worked at one of those Bel-Air mansions, and we would go – not too often, but every now and then – to pick her up. Hollywood was probably 12 miles from my house, but it might as well have been a million miles away. The only time I saw that world was on TV. Until I started making records.
You can’t win unless you have good people with great attitude. They are the ones who won the games. I didn’t win any games. You never saw a coach make a tackle anywhere. My philosophy was to get the best players and then try to do something new with them.
No matter what anybody says, relationships are based on physical attraction. The first time I saw my wife, it was pure animal whatever.
I was out dancing with one actress or another. And that got press. Even when it didn’t, the whole town knew I was a dancing fool, and since I couldn’t very well dance with a man, they saw me dancing with a lady, and they assumed the rest.
I began my career as an economics professor but became frustrated because the economic theories I taught in the classroom didn’t have any meaning in the lives of poor people I saw all around me. I decided to turn away from the textbooks and discover the real-life economics of a poor person’s existence.
He can’t imagine the result of the mission because he never saw it.
I watched Janis one time – we opened for her – and that’s the only time I ever saw her. We opened for Jimi Hendrix. I got to stand on the side of the stage and watch him for two hours and then he died. But I got the essence before they left.
I wanted to be the next Dana Carvey. This was my ultimate goal. If I ever cut into a birthday cake and made a wish, I would wish to be on ‘Saturday Night Live.’ If I threw a coin into a fountain, I would wish to be on ‘Saturday Night Live.’ If I saw a shooting star, I would wish to be on ‘Saturday Night Live.’
The signers of the Declaration of Independence did not pledge their fortunes and sacred honor so the federal government could play ‘helicopter parent’ to a free people. They saw government as our shared project to secure liberty, doing a few big things and doing them well.
I saw James Rodriguez play for the Colombian national team. I saw him play for Real Madrid and for Bayern, too. For me he’s a fantastic player, a sensational player, intelligent, a player, who, if you let him play the way he likes, for sure, he’ll do a lot for the Premier League.
I saw ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’ and I loved it.
I was 23, and he was 86. I saw a very sick man. I just wanted to just talk with him. There was no physical attraction at all. He was very much attracted to me.
My father, Larry McKelvey, he was the man in Moncks Corner. He ran illegal nightclubs where everyone went, ran around in red leather pants, claimed he partied with Rick James. If you needed anything in Moncks Corner, you saw Larry McKelvey.
It’s been very funny to try to act like an adult. Even getting dressed. Every day, I’m like, ‘Should I wear a blazer and walk around with an umbrella? Do I carry a briefcase?’ Because I’m trying to be some image of the adults I saw on TV growing up.
I didn’t like the play, but then I saw it under adverse conditions – the curtain was up.
When I first saw a picture of the crucifixion, I lost respect for my parents. I suddenly realised that this is what the adult world is like – full of cruelty and hypocrisy.
I rarely saw my Grandma Markle, as she hailed from New Hampshire and spent much of her life in Pennsylvania and Florida. To bridge that gap, she would always send scrapbooks, care packages, and boxes of treats made from family recipes.
I saw my parents come over. They were immigrants, they had no money. My dad wore the same pair of shoes, I had some ugly clothes growing up, and I never had any privileges. In some ways, I think the person that I am now, I think it’s good that I had that kind of tough upbringing.
In the 1950s, the average person saw science as something that solved problems. With the advent of nuclear weapons and pollution, the idealistic aura around scientific research has been replaced by cynicism.
Everything was sensory and I never saw the structure in anything.
The last copy of the Chicago Daily News I picked up had three crime stories on its front page. But by comparison to the gaudy days, this is small-time stuff. Chicago is as full of crooks as a saw with teeth, but the era when they ruled the city is gone forever.
When punk came along, I found my generation‘s music. I grew up listening to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones and Pink Floyd, ’cause that was what got played in the house. But when I first saw the Stranglers, I thought, ‘This is it.’
I guess I figured out my dad was a fight coordinator pretty early, because I always saw him running into walls and stuff and nobody got mad at him, but it took me a lot longer to figure out what Mom did, because it was usually stuff on the telephone.
I grew up in a family of peasants, and it was there that I saw the way that, for example, our wheat fields suffered as a result of dust storms, water erosion and wind erosion; I saw the effect of that on life – on human life.
And while I stood there I saw more than I can tell and I understood more than I saw; for I was seeing in a sacred manner the shapes of all things in the spirit, and the shape of all shapes as they must live together like one being.
I think Shrek makes an effect in older people. And there are many things in the movie that you saw that are not for kids. Kids would not understand certain things.
The thought for a long time was that banks needed to be too controlled, too regulated to be turned over to the Wild West of the Net. Then the credit meltdown hit, and we saw just how reckless these so-called safe and regulated institutions were.
I just saw a copy of a cover of a magazine that I’m on, and it’s very weird and unusual.
I always say I make the movies where people go, ‘Hey, I never saw it, but when I finally did, I really liked it.’ People saw ‘Baby Driver,’ though. I was pleased with that.
I saw old Autumn in the misty morn stand shadowless like silence, listening to silence.
I can only say this with all relative humility: I saw myself as a Beatle.
I saw this new thing called television, and I saw people throwing pies in each other’s faces, and I thought, ‘This could be a wonderful tool for education! Why is it being used this way?’ So I said to my parents, ‘You know, I don’t think I’ll go into seminary right away. I think I’ll go into television.’
I hear about stars being torn to pieces by fans. It never happened to me and I never saw it happen to anyone else.
It’s been an old saw in science fiction for a long time, since ‘Frankenstein,’ that we’re going to create life that’s going to turn on us.
When was the last time you saw a musical about people at war with each other?
I saw a sign it said left lane closed so I went someplace else.
At first, almost everyone who got involved did so for philosophical reasons. We saw bitcoin as a great idea, as a way to separate money from the state.
The things that you saw earlier in your life generally have more power than the things you saw last week.
My first job was on Broadway. Then I went into the Navy. When I came out of the Navy, I went back to Broadway and a friend of mine, Lauren Bacall, was in Hollywood filming with Humphrey Bogart. She told one of her producers I was great in my play, and he saw it and cast me in ‘The Strange Love of Martha Ivers’.
A great wind swept over the ghetto, carrying away shame, invisibility and four centuries of humiliation. But when the wind dropped people saw it had been only a little breeze, friendly, almost gentle.
If there were teenagers who had a video camera and saw what I did on a daily basis, they’d be bored out of their mind.
In school, I wasn’t like the cool guy who had all the new clothes and had all the girls. I felt like the world saw me as an idiot.
In 2008, when the real estate market blew up, it principally hurt older people who saw the value of their houses go down, along with their pension plans.
I saw part of The Singing Detective on TV in New York. I said, Something is going on here.
Who says a center can’t make the pass into the post? Michael Jordan, effectively, was a post player and you saw with the championship teams players able to do multiple things.
What happened? The Country got sick of it and said, Enough is enough. And all over the Country we saw springing up community organizations determined to do something about this terrible menace of drugs.
In all my years of play, I never saw an ump deliberately make an unfair decision. They really called them as they saw ’em.
My father never kissed me, hugged me or told me that he loved me. As my only living parent, he became the filter through which I saw myself, the possibilities for my life, the world and all men. He was a conflicted and dark filter.
I personally hate psychiatrists. When I was a kid, I saw quite a few of them, and they ruin everything.
When I first saw a Fellini movie, I came out of the movie theatre and decided to become a lawyer! I thought to myself, it’s impossible to make something so beautiful!
The trouble with that movie is that you had to see Chinatown the day before you saw The Two Jakes.
Through Kurt I saw the beauty of minimalism and the importance of music that’s stripped down.
I saw that giving even all my life to God (supposing it possible to do this and go no further) would profit me nothing unless I gave my heart, yea, all my heart, to Him.
I came to Southbury because I wanted to live a more simple life. When I was a child, I saw lots of movies about happy people living in Connecticut. And ever since then, that was where I wanted to live. I thought it would be like the movies. And it really is. It’s exactly what I hoped it would be.
Last winter when I was coming home from church one Thursday evening, I saw somebody run around the house again. I told my father of that.
The first time I ever saw people of any color was when D-Day left from my hometown in England, to go and free Europe from the war. And there was every color you could imagine, and I’d not seen that in England.
We were for Mao, but when we saw the films he was making, they were bad. So we understood that there was necessarily something wrong with what he was saying.
When I was 7 and went to the zoo with my second-grade class, I saw chimpanzee eyes for the first time – the eyes of an unhappy animal, all alone, locked in a bare, concrete-floored, iron-barred cage in one of the nastier, old-fashioned zoos. I remember looking at the chimp, then looking away.
The moon I see now is the same moon I saw before. Except that before, when I looked at it, it was in anticipation of what it would be like when I got there. That’s behind me now.
I saw ‘Cats’ on a school trip. I thought it was neat and a little weird. The set was cool.
In 1957, I was studying the Pleiades star cluster at Harvard University’s radio observatory. On one occasion, we saw an added feature in the data. It turned out to be an amateur radio enthusiast near the observatory, but at the time, I thought we had detected clear evidence of another civilisation.
I saw a woman wearing a sweatshirt with Guess on it. I said, Thyroid problem?
As a kid, I grew up on a farm in Florida, and I did what most little kids do. I played a little baseball, did a few other things like that, but I always had the sense of being an outsider, and it wasn’t until I saw pictures in the magazines that a couple other guys skate, I thought, ‘Wow, that’s for me,’ you know?
In my view, far from deserving condemnation for their courageous reporting, the New York Times, the Washington Post and other newspapers should be commended for serving the purpose that the Founding Fathers saw so clearly.
Some astronauts describe the routine flushing of urine into space, where the freezing temperatures turn the droplets into a cloud of bright, drifting crystals, as being among the most amazing sights they saw on an entire voyage.
When I saw Anuel for the first time singing live, I kissed him. That was the kiss that everyone saw.
I was skating with friends in my neighborhood, and then eventually I was invited to go to the skate park with one of them. When I saw people flying all around – literally flying in and out of bowls – that is when I knew I wanted to do it. I wanted to figure out how I could get there and how I could fly.
We started off as this platform inside Facebook; and we were pretty clear from the beginning that that wasn’t where it was going to end up. A lot of people saw it and asked, ‘Why is Facebook trying to get all these applications inside Facebook when the web is clearly the platform?’ And we actually agreed with that.
