I know that people are fascinated by what I did as a teenager, but what I did was immoral, illegal, unethical, and something that I am not proud of – nor will I ever be proud of.

When I started playing the bass, I became kind of fascinated by it and started investigating various styles of bass playing, and I was really struck with funk music, mainly American funk music – Stanley Clarke, Funkadelic and that kind of stuff. That comes out in a couple of songs like ‘Barbarism Begins at Home.’

Andy Rourke
I’m fascinated by the skills gap.

The Church of Satan was something, aesthetically, that we were always really fascinated with and wanted to emulate. I think it’s a good look.

Technology is a wonderful tool, but also if used incorrectly a horrible tool. We’re fascinated by all aspects of it, whatever makes our human lives easier on the planet, but eventually there will have to be some sort of merger. The fascination isn’t going to die down.

One of the elements in the film that really fascinated me was not to look at the world in bi-polar terms of us vs them or east vs west, which was a by-product of the Cold War.

When I was younger, I read a book by Frank Barnaby, this wonderful nuclear physicist – he said that media had a responsibility, that all sectors of society had a responsibility to try and progress things and move things forward.

In the same way he’s fascinated by crosswords, the puzzle of solving the murder is what drives him on.

John Thaw

Adan Canto
I think most of my heroes are not the traditional types. A guy I was fascinated with was Buster Keaton. I just love what he did. I love that mug.

I’m fascinated by food. Food is love, isn’t it?

I’ve always been a huge fan of thrillers like David Fincher’s ‘Se7en.’ I am fascinated by the disturbing, dark underbelly of life. I find such films deeply engrossing. They delve deep into the human psyche, and that’s a place worth exploring.

I was fascinated by mortality. Most people are, even if they don’t admit it.

We’ll always be fascinated by people who live above the law.

I’ve always been fascinated by totalitarian regimes. I’m not an admirer of them.

Diane Setterfield
For me, I’ve always wanted to be a nun. I mean, I think about what it’s like to be a nun. And I’ve always been fascinated with nuns, and I have a nun collection, I’ve been collecting nuns for 20 years. And I have a song that I wrote, ‘I Wanna Be a Nun,’ when I was 25.

I have always been fascinated by the way things work and how they came to take the form that they did. Writing about these things satisfies my curiosity about the made world while at the same time giving me an opportunity to design a new explanation for the processes that shape it.

I always loved silent movies. I was not a specialist, but I loved them. And when I started directing, I became really fascinated by the format – how it works, the device of the silent movie.

I was born on the fairer side, but I’ve always been fascinated by dusky and dark tones. So, when the makers of my films asked me to go a few shades darker, I didn’t think twice. I am not doing anything extraordinary, but I want to break cinematic notions about outwardly appearances.

I’m endlessly fascinated by parenting, marriage, my wife and the ins and outs of marriage.

Rob Delaney
I’m riveted by extreme sports like big-wave surfing, ‘megaramp’ skateboarding and half-pipe snowboarding. I’m fascinated partly because the sports are so exhilaratingly acrobatic. But I’m also captivated by the fear that a terrible accident might happen at any moment. And accidents do happen.

I don’t eat two days a week. And people are fascinated by it, but it works. If you cut two days of food out of your life you will lose weight.

You should enter science because you are fascinated by it. That’s what I did.

I’m fascinated by management and organizations: how organizations get things done and how successful organizations are built and maintained, how they evolve as they grow from start-ups to small companies to medium companies to big companies.

I worked two days in Texas and two days in Hollywood on ‘Bonnie and Clyde,’ and that was it. I had no idea how it was going to turn out. And when I saw it, I was so upset, or fascinated, or something, by the sight of myself on the screen that I could hardly pay attention to the rest of the movie.

I love flying and kind of just fascinated with it, and to fly something like an F-22 would be a blast.

I know that in spite of my varied career accomplishments, the one that will always excite and intrigue is the KKK investigation. It has defined me in ways unimaginable and has always fascinated those who hear its tale.

Riches have never fascinated me, unless combined with the greatest charm or distinction.

On the one hand, I’m this guy who grew up in the suburbs of New York City to very conservative parents, and the other side of me is fascinated by the peripheries of our culture, maybe because that’s where our culture is most in transition and where there’s likely to be conflict.

There’s something called toxic stress, which is repeated exposure to trauma. I was fascinated by how it affects the brain and the development of a person.

From an early age I was very, very fascinated by uncertainty.

Myron Scholes
I was born in Dallas; then I moved to Allen, Texas. But then I got sent to boarding school, where I started to get fascinated with actors like Al Pacino.

Then I went to film school, and I got to dabble with different aspects of moviemaking, and I ended up settling heavily into editing – editing was what I was really adept at, had a passion for.

I had a fascination with the back side of the business, and the creative process always fascinated me. Vince gave me an opportunity in ’98 to sit in the production meetings. He would talk creative with me, and we had this creative rapport.

I’ve always been fascinated by the Gold Coast. The homes themselves are spectacular, unlike anything you’ll see other than in Newport, Bar Harbor or Palm Beach. It’s a very special area that, because of local demographics, is not going to survive much longer.

Nelson DeMille
But I’ve always been fascinated with that prettiest-girl-in-the-class person that I never was, getting inside her head and showing that she’s just as tormented and messed up as everybody else.

I had always been fascinated by the whole idea that Australia was this different ecology and that when rabbits and prickly pears and other things from Europe were introduced into Australia, they ran amok.

I try to approach the film medium as a novelist and the novel medium as a filmmaker on some level. It’s that question: Do we think in pictures, or do we think in language? And the novelist believes one thing, and the filmmaker believes another thing – and I’m fascinated by that balance.

I went to church as a boy, and then I quite quickly stepped away from religion. But I remained fascinated by the need people have for religion.

I’m really fascinated by lingos and colloquialisms that are outmoded and have gone by the wayside. I love the way people spoke in the ’30s, and the amazing slang of the mid-’60s and ’70s.

I have always been surrounded by women with strong personality and feminine: my mother, my sister, my aunts, my friends. I am fascinated by the look they can have – simple details such as a step, a way of speaking, a gesture, a way of wearing a garment.

Louie and Seabiscuit were both Californians and both on the sports pages in the 1930s. I was fascinated. When I learned about his World War II experiences, I thought, ‘If this guy is still alive, I want to meet him.’

I think it was the ability of the theater to communicate ideas and extol virtues that drew me to it. And also, I was, and remain, fascinated by the idea of an audience as a community of people who gather willingly to bear witness.

Again, like I said, my life has been about being fascinated by objects and the stories that they tell, and also making them for myself, obtaining them, appreciating them and diving into them.

I’m fascinated with the stories that we tell. Real histories become fantasies and fairy tales, morality tales and fables. There’s something interesting and funny and perverse about the way fairytale sometimes passes for history, for truth.

I’m so into music that I just stop and listen, whenever there’s music on. That’s the problem with being a musician for so long. I can get lost in the bassline, fascinated with the arrangement, curious about the production. I can’t shut it out.

Derek Sivers
I am fascinated by that notion of people are never as they seem. And that doesn’t make them good or bad. It’s just we don’t ever really show ourselves if we don’t have to.

My artistic decision to cast my mother’s objects into bronze moves beyond the notions of memorializing her. I’ve been fascinated for some time with the idea of monumentality and what it means to memorialize. Both of these notions are relevant historically, artistically, and culturally.

The Seven Cities of Gold always fascinated me. Southwestern U.S. history especially fascinates me. The whole spur of the Spanish exploration of the Southwestern U.S. was the search for these mythical Seven Cities of Gold.

I’d always been fascinated by death, which sounds so morbid. Especially being a woman trying to make music, I think there’s a sense that you’re never young enough, or your career is going to end soon.

Now I’m president. I get to meet a lot of other company presidents. They’re such weird people. I’m fascinated by them. I use some of them as enemy characters in our games.

I’m a Jew. I’m fascinated by our culture and our history, by what made us the people we are. It influences every breath I take. It informs and guides me. Without it, I’d just be a vacuum.

My mother was always fascinated with the fact that I could rhyme so much stuff.

My mother had a sewing machine. I was never allowed to use it, but I was so fascinated by this little needle going up and down joining fabric together that I’d use it when my mother went out to feed the chickens.

I think I’ve been addicted to openness since long before my rock career. I was terrible as a teenager. I used to go out of my way to make people uncomfortable with personal details. I was always fascinated by the idea that we have these weird, random boundaries between what we do and don’t show.

I always loved silent movies. I was not a specialist, but I loved them. And when I started directing, I became really fascinated by the format – how it works, the device of the silent movie. It’s not the same form of expression as a talkie. The lack of sounds makes you participate in the storytelling.

My mother went to a school called ‘The Club of the Three Wise Monkeys’. And my grandmother, my father’s mother, had a gold charm for her made with the speak no, see no, hear no evil monkeys. And I was fascinated by that charm. I’d sit in my mother’s lap and play with it all the time.

Mackenzie Phillips
Right outside of Kansas City is Leavenworth, and there are, like, five prisons there. It was kind of the tapestry of my childhood. I was always fascinated. I wanted to know what was behind those walls.

I was fascinated by all of it. The sounds of the theater and the audience, their rapture when a play took over and moved them and held them quietly… When the audience was truly moved, it was absolutely quiet. They were in a communion because they were learning the truth about themselves.

George Stevens
I’ve always been fascinated by activists, people who will devote their life to a cause, people who go to India and to Africa and put their life in jeopardy to do what they believe is right.

People who work in factories or in the woods or maybe a dairy farm – for years, I’ve been fascinated with people like that. No pretensions. They just live their lives. I found them beautiful. They were all I seemed to be interested in writing about.

I’m fascinated by real-time behavior.

Part of my affinity with urban music comes from being on ‘Kids Incorporated,’ ‘cos we used to sit around and listen to Chaka Khan and Prince, and I got influenced by all that. Then gangsta rap got started, and I was infatuated with that – maybe that’s why I’m fascinated by guns.

I’m fascinated by journalism. I put a keen eye, not a negative eye, on its role, particularly how it is changed by the times we’re living in.

I learned my color in Europe. I’ve always been a colorist, I think. I started when I was very young, being a bird-watcher, fascinated by the bird colors.

I was fascinated with jeans, because you can impress your life upon the jeans you wear. The way you sit imprints on the jeans.

Gandhi became my role model. I have always been interested in Eastern philosophy. Since early in my life I’ve been fascinated by India, and I have spent a great deal of time traveling in that country.

Death is the one – the one thing we don’t have many answers for. We understand how people die, but we don’t know what comes next, and that’s something that’s always fascinated and disturbed me and frustrated me.

It’s always been the genres that fascinated me. I think great action movies and great thrillers are transformative.

Space fascinated me because I’m from the generation that saw Neil Armstrong walk on the moon live on TV. I was 7 at the time. Also, ‘Lost in Space’ was one of my favorite shows on TV back then.

I must admit that i am fascinated by the glories of ancient India. But when will the purveyors of Indian culture realise that not everything about our past was glorious?

I’m so fascinated by the influence of social media on fashion. I’ve seen so many artists on Instagram, up and comers you would have never known otherwise.

I’m fascinated by sports, the buzz of winning, and the buzz of losing.

My favorite books are psychology, self-help, and I’m fascinated by Jung, by dream work.

Has Werner Herzog ever said anything that wasn’t true? What a brilliant fountain of wisdom. Everything he touches I’m just fascinated by.

I have always been fascinated with guns. I grew up in America, so, granted, it is part of our heritage, and it is written into the laws of how this country is run.

I find it vulgar that people are so fascinated by natural disasters, and we allow footage of young people that are looting because they have no choice because of natural disaster.

I’m interested in the relationships of people. I’m interested in the darker moments within us. All those aspects of human behavior, I’m fascinated by. But in the times we’re in, those are hard movies to make. So if I can do it at HBO, fine.

I’m fascinated with films that deal with strategy because there’s a right way and a wrong way to get the job done.

Cindy Morgan
I was always fascinated, even as a child, by antiques and ancient times. I always felt I should have been born in the 17th or 18th century. They really had a big stone castle with authentic furniture.

Just in the past few years – since I’ve been making movies, which isn’t a very long time – you now have a culture that is fascinated and informed about the box office in a way that sometimes filmmakers weren’t even.

I’ve always been a Civil War buff. In fact, the ships that always fascinated me the most were the ironclads, because they were the start of an era.

I’ve always had a fascination with vampires. It’s not that I’m exactly fascinated with the dark side. It’s the human struggle with it. How we deal with those two aspects of who we are. We all have those elements.

I’d be so fascinated to talk to a psychologist or sociologist about the deep psychological impact of seeing oneself represented. I don’t think we’ve really touched the surface of what it does to the psyche of a people if the only image of you out there is negative. Or if it’s never out there.

I’m fascinated with quantum physics.

I love English rock music the best and have always been fascinated by The Clash, especially Joe Strummer, their singer.

Carla Bruni
I’ve been completely fascinated with history because it tells everything about what’s going to happen next because it’s cyclical, everything repeats in general.

Emilie Autumn
I’m not a computer guy. I’m like an anthropologist. I’m fascinated with people’s obsessions. I’ve learned to wear them.

I’m fascinated by people’s obsession with how they look and how humans really do judge you within the first few seconds of meeting you.

I started with CB radio, ham radio, and eventually went into computers. And I was just fascinated with it. And back then, when I was in school, computer hacking was encouraged. It was an encouraged activity. In fact, I remember one of the projects my teacher gave me was writing a log-in simulator.

My father was a lawyer. I was fascinated to become a lawyer, too.

I’ve always been fascinated and stared at maps for hours as a kid. I’ve especially been most intrigued by the uninhabited or lonelier places on the planet. Like Greenland, for instance, or just recently flying over Alaska and a chain of icy, mountainous islands, uninhabited.

As far as the style, I was fascinated by surrealism.

Mark Mothersbaugh
Everybody knows about Pearl Harbor. The thing that really fascinated me is that through this tragedy there was this amazing American heroism.
