Hannah Storm in a horrifying, horrifying outfit today. She's got on red go-go boots and a catholic school plaid skirt ... way too short for somebody in her 40s or maybe early 50s by now ... She's got on her typically very, very tight shirt. She looks like she has sausage casing wrapping around her upper body ... I know she's very good, and I'm not supposed to be critical of ESPN people, so I won't ... but Hannah Storm ... come on now! Stop! What are you doing? ... She's what I would call a Holden Caulfield fantasy at this point.Tony Kornheiser Over 50s Sayings By Tony Kornheiser: Hannah Storm in a horrifying, horrifying outfit today.

We've gone from, in the '50s and '60s, being very optimistic about the future, where the future is all spaceships and The Jetsons and flying cars, to where we were just sure the future was going to be a massive pile of rubble.David Wong Over 50s Sayings By David Wong: We've gone from, in the '50s and '60s, being very optimistic about the future, where

My parents had us very young. We lived in a modest house. We built forts, we hiked, we went camping and they wanted us to be independent.

We lived in a modest house. We built forts,
Football has always been violent. In the early days of the game, they didn't wear hard helmets. They wore soft helmets, which were just designed to protect the ears.

In the early days of the game, they didn't wear

I think the film is beautifully realised. His legacy as a journalist was recorded - as it were - well, and certainly the important issues of the '50s - or even today - are delivered and presented to the audience in a rather honest and objective way.David Strathairn Over 50s Sayings By David Strathairn: I think the film is beautifully realised. His legacy as a journalist was recorded -
As the final decade of the millennium dawned, there would be no greater expression of the cultural, economic, and social revolutions to come than fashion. What rock 'n' roll was to the '50s, drugs to the '60s, film to the '70s, and modern art to the '80s, fashion was to the '90s: the fuse, then the filter.Maureen Callahan Over 50s Sayings By Maureen Callahan: As the final decade of the millennium dawned, there would be no greater expression of

My dad had a commercial film company, so he had a videotape player before anyone. So he got Mel Brooks movies or Citizen Kane or some classic old movies.

The first generation from the '50s that were in 1650 [Broadway] were pretty much all crooks, I mean just out and out crooks. And the next generation had a little more finesse. But I mean those first wave of people, you know, definitely would take all your money, no doubt about it.Al Kooper Over 50s Sayings By Al Kooper: The first generation from the '50s that were in 1650 [Broadway] were pretty much all

I lived in Italy for a number of years and I was really digging around trying to get my hands dirty, trying to learn about Italian music.

The real reason we ended up getting into that type of music was our dad worked for an oil company so we spent a year overseas when we were young kids. Because of that, it was all Spanish TV and radio so we ended up having these '50s and '60s tapes, tapes of that music.Zac Hanson Over 50s Sayings By Zac Hanson: The real reason we ended up getting into that type of music was our dad
I guess Pumas are in their 30s. Cougars in their 40s ... Jaguars are 50s, and Sabretooths go into the 60s, right?Courteney Cox Over 50s Sayings By Courteney Cox: I guess Pumas are in their 30s. Cougars in their 40s ... Jaguars are 50s,

Kissinger Over 50s Sayings By Henry A. Kissinger: In the middle '50s, I had written that the point would come, inevitably, at which
I grew up looking at ... going to the movies a lot, as much as they'd let you. I grew up in Manchester in the north of England in the '40s and '50s. I saw a lot of movies. They were all Hollywood and British movies. I didn't see a film that wasn't in English until I was 17 when I went to London to be a student.Mike Leigh Over 50s Sayings By Mike Leigh: I grew up looking at ... going to the movies a lot, as much as
You have to be desirable. And that's why so many woman of my age or even younger are pushed to Botox and plastic surgery, all the things that people say, 'Why do women do this?' Where do you go in your 50s in your career?Kim Cattrall Over 50s Sayings By Kim Cattrall: You have to be desirable. And that's why so many woman of my age or
Science fiction is fantasy about issues of science. Science fiction is a subset of fantasy. Fantasy predated it by several millennia. The '30s to the '50s were the golden age of science fiction - this was because, to a large degree, it was at this point that technology and science had exposed its potential without revealing the limitations.Raymond E. Feist Over 50s Sayings By Raymond E. Feist: Science fiction is fantasy about issues of science. Science fiction is a subset of fantasy.
I fantasised about F. Scott Fitzgerald's 'The Great Gatsby' - I loved it, and then I read everything J. D. Salinger had to offer. Then I was turned on to Kerouac, and his spontaneous prose, his stream of consciousness way of writing. I admired him so much, and I romanticised so much about the '40s and '50s.Garrett Hedlund Over 50s Sayings By Garrett Hedlund: I fantasised about F. Scott Fitzgerald's 'The Great Gatsby' - I loved it, and then
You look at most artists, the arc of their career, there's a definite decline at the end. And that decline could set in at any time. In your 50s, or your 60s and 70s if you're lucky. Time goes by fast, and you've got to be busy all the time.Seth Over 50s Sayings By Seth: You look at most artists, the arc of their career, there's a definite decline at
We moved into the back, made it into a little 50s sitting room and started to sell the records. We had an immediate success. For one thing, these Teddy Boys were thrilled to buy the records.Vivienne Westwood Over 50s Sayings By Vivienne Westwood: We moved into the back, made it into a little 50s sitting room and started
I grew up in New York, and I've always been surrounded by fashion. My grandmother used to write for 'Vogue' in the '50s, and my mother was a dancer and a model.Dean Winters Over 50s Sayings By Dean Winters: I grew up in New York, and I've always been surrounded by fashion. My grandmother
I love fashion! I love clothes! I really like vintage clothes, so in my closet there's a lot of '50s stuff. I go to the stores and shop around.Elle Fanning Over 50s Sayings By Elle Fanning: I love fashion! I love clothes! I really like vintage clothes, so in my closet
I'm making a lot of money. I should be paying a lot more taxes. I'm not paying taxes at a rate that is even close to what people were paying under Eisenhower. Do people think America wasn't ascendant and wasn't an upwardly mobile society under Eisenhower in the '50s? Nobody was looking at the country then and thinking to themselves, "We're taxing ourselves into oblivion." Yet there isn't a politician with balls enough to tell that truth because the whole system has been muddied by the rich. It's been purchased.David Simon Over 50s Sayings By David Simon: I'm making a lot of money. I should be paying a lot more taxes. I'm
In terms of how prudish Americans were in the '40s and '50s, I have absolutely no idea. I do know about the character that I play. And I don't think it's about being prudish. I think it's about trying to balance a sense of control in this man's life.Michael Sheen Over 50s Sayings By Michael Sheen: In terms of how prudish Americans were in the '40s and '50s, I have absolutely
I'd experienced the '40s and '50s by looking at my grandparents' old clothes, books, and magazines.Christian Lacroix Over 50s Sayings By Christian Lacroix: I'd experienced the '40s and '50s by looking at my grandparents' old clothes, books, and
L.A. prides itself on newness or being the last frontier or just not liking old things and tearing them down to build new things. But Malibu history is interesting to me. My mom's family was one of the early families in California, so there's history going back to the 1840s or '50s.Kim Gordon Over 50s Sayings By Kim Gordon: L.A. prides itself on newness or being the last frontier or just not liking old
I did not become a Christian to live the 50s and 60s all over a second time. Muslims have more rights and freedom of religion than I do as a Christian. Tell a Muslim he can't pray at school or at the airport or downtown when prayer time is called for, and see what happens. Tell a Muslim cleric serving as a chaplain in our brilliant military that he has to marry a same-sex couple, and see what happens.Ken Hutcherson Over 50s Sayings By Ken Hutcherson: I did not become a Christian to live the 50s and 60s all over a
Liberals and leftists have been dismissing inconvenient facts by attacking motives for generations. In the 1930s, '40s, and '50s, Soviet spies and abettors attacked the motives of their accusers because the fact of their guilt was undeniable. In the 1960s, over a thousand psychiatrists who'd never even met Barry Goldwater signed a petition saying the GOP candidate was too mentally unstable to be president.Jonah Goldberg Over 50s Sayings By Jonah Goldberg: Liberals and leftists have been dismissing inconvenient facts by attacking motives for generations. In the
On this side of the Atlantic, the arrival of a new Woody Allen movie is always greeted with tremors of bliss by filmgoers past the age of 60, with mild curiosity by those in their 50s, with trepidation by those in their 40s, with fear and loathing by those in their 30s, and with complete indifference by anyone younger. An icon to baby boomers, who will never concede that when something is over, it is really over (Clapton, McCartney, Santana, the 1960s), Allen has not made a truly memorable film since Bullets On Broadway back in 1994Joe Queenan Over 50s Sayings By Joe Queenan: On this side of the Atlantic, the arrival of a new Woody Allen movie is
The scale of revenue growth is unprecedented. If you look back over history, whether you're looking at the railway robber baron era or the 1920s or the '50s or the '70s, it used to take a long time for a company to get to the point where they had tens of millions of dollars of revenue. It was almost never an overnight phenomenon.Stewart Butterfield Over 50s Sayings By Stewart Butterfield: The scale of revenue growth is unprecedented. If you look back over history, whether you're
In the '50s, I was traveling alone all over Mindanao, Basilan, all the way to Tawi-Tawi with just a camera and a notebook. I always stayed in the houses of Moros.F. Sionil Jose Over 50s Sayings By F. Sionil Jose: In the '50s, I was traveling alone all over Mindanao, Basilan, all the way to
There's a paradox here. If we return one last time to that '50s-era banker, we see that his mind was occupied with human distortions - desires, prejudice, distrust of outsiders. To carry out the job more fairly and efficiently, he and the rest of his industry handed the work over to an algorithm. Sixty years later, the world is dominated by automatic systems chomping away on our error-ridden dossiers. They urgently require the context, common sense, and fairness that only humans can provide. However, if we leave this issue to the marketplace, which prizes efficiency, growth, and cash flow (while tolerating a certain degree of errors), meddling humans will be instructed to stand clear of the machinery.Cathy O'Neil Over 50s Sayings By Cathy O'Neil: There's a paradox here. If we return one last time to that '50s-era banker, we
There are so many venues in which stars are exposed today, that we just know much more and the studios don't have the control over stars like they used to, in the 30s, 40s, and 50s.Mary Hart Over 50s Sayings By Mary Hart: There are so many venues in which stars are exposed today, that we just know
According to a survey released by the Pew Research Center in September, 25 percent of Americans are expected to be single into their mid-40s and mid-50s, and are unlikely to have ever been married. As of 2013, there were over 100 million single people in the country. Of that number, 53 percent were women, and 47 percent were men.Anonymous Over 50s Sayings By Anonymous: According to a survey released by the Pew Research Center in September, 25 percent of
I truly believe that we're about to enter a second golden age of design. The first one was in the '50s and '60s, when designers like Raymond Loewy, Charles Eames, George Nelson and Dieter Rams were shepherds of the brands they were working with. They had influence over the products and how companies communicated and promoted themselves.Yves Behar Over 50s Sayings By Yves Behar: I truly believe that we're about to enter a second golden age of design. The
Not only was Dan Cooper likely an alias, but many people suspected at the time were people living under assumed names. The '50s and '60s were a time when some people were desperate to leave their lives. They felt trapped in their marriages or their jobs, and they were seeking freedom. And one of the ways to do that, because technology wasn't advanced as it is today, was just to take over somebody's name.Geoffrey Gray Over 50s Sayings By Geoffrey Gray: Not only was Dan Cooper likely an alias, but many people suspected at the time
I think Hollywood has gone in a disastrous path. It's terrible. The years of cinema that were great were the '30s, '40s, not so much the '50s ... but then the foreign films took over and it was a great age of cinema as American directors were influenced by them and that fueled the '50s and '60s and '70s.Woody Allen Over 50s Sayings By Woody Allen: I think Hollywood has gone in a disastrous path. It's terrible. The years of cinema
Well, probably the best way to put it might be that at some time, not just in an instant, but over some period of time I became aware of the fact that I wanted to document examples like Kroger or Piggly Wiggly in the late '50s, early '60s.William Eggleston Over 50s Sayings By William Eggleston: Well, probably the best way to put it might be that at some time, not
