Craig Ferguson, young punk rocker

In his memoir, Craig Ferguson remembers the punk revolution of 1977, when he was a kid:
I formed or joined a slew of different but always awful bands with memorable names such as Night Creatures, the News, Prussia (what the f***!), and the Fast Colours. Truly woeful outfits that would rehearse in garages. They were literally garage bands, and they had the trademark of all fledging rock outfits, the one kid crowbarred into the group despite playing a hopelessly inappropriate instrument (flute/oboe/accordion) because his father had a car and was willing to ferry our instruments to practice. You have never heard "Anarchy in the U.K." butchered until you hear it with a clarinet solo.

A book about the making of The Simpsons

An animation executive producer talks about the reaction of producer James L. Brooks upon seeing the first episode of The Simpsons come back from the Korean animation studio in 1989:
He got really disappointed because none of the jokes worked, and then all of a sudden he started to scream and yell, saying, "What is this?" He just went off and he even started to demand extra camera angles, which was the funniest thing ever -- he never did animation in his life. He asked for coverage like when you're shooting a live-action movie. "So where are the other camera angles?" My producer and I were just looking at each other.
