I worked night security for Estee Lauder. It was horrible. I worked from midnight till 8 in the morning. I did that just so I could sleep during the day, then go into Manhattan to train with Renzo at night. I would train, then go work all night in a guard booth.
What doing baseball means to me is it’s a real touchpoint with my late father. This is what he did for thirty years. I was fortunate to share the booth with my dad for four seasons in the 1990s, so every time I do a game, it’s a way to honor him.
I sat in the back of the broadcast booth for ages watching my dad do his job. And not just watching how he did his job, but how he interacted with people and how he regarded his job.
When I played, I thought I was one of the 10 baddest guys in the world and should change for work in a phone booth. You need to think that way.
Lewis Booth and Derrick Kuzak represent the very best of Ford and our culture and built a legacy of leadership, integrity and commitment to excellence that will benefit us for years to come.
You know the actor John Garfield? In one movie he walked up to this train station, the ticket booth, and the guy says, ‘Yes, where are you going?’ And he says, ‘I want a ticket to nowhere.’ I thought: that’s it. The freedom to do that. I want a ticket to nowhere.
I had an apartment on Long Beach Blvd and San Vicente in Long Beach, California. That was the apartment I done ‘Regulate’ in. I had all my equipment set up in the bedroom, a vocal booth in the bathroom and in the closet, and that’s where we created it. I had an MPC 60, a Numark mixer, and a Technics 1200, and a ton of records.
It’s a total big difference between a person that got lyrics and a person that can make hit singles. I’m a person that can make some hit singles. I’m not in no booth trying to be a lyrical genius. I’m preparing to make me some singles, and as I develop as a man, then they’ll respect my emcee skills.
I worked as an accountant in an auditor’s office, at a textile showroom, a telephone booth, and a fast-food joint while studying. My dad found it odd, but he never interfered in any of my decisions.
I don’t write; I just go in the booth.
I am fed up with career politicians. I am tired of going into the voting booth and holding my nose to pick the least worst candidate on the ballot.
Working with Timbaland, he gives me insight; he throws me different ways to approach the beat, and those extra tips go a long way. I know that he’s worked with some of the greats, so it’s just motivation. I feel inspired when we’re in the booth together.
When I started as a color man in the booth with CBS, I would make footballs out of a roll of toilet paper.
I’m a superhero that knows how to have a good time. I’ll get behind the DJ booth and get on the ones and twos and get the party going.
I’m an ‘in the shower’ or ‘in the booth’ kind of singer. I can sing, but I need either nobody to be able to hear me, or for me to be able to redo it.
When you do an animated movie – at least the ones that I’ve been a part of – you never see any of the other actors. It’s all done separately with headphones in a voice booth.
I like to bring my kids to the voting booth to show them how it works. I’ll let them draw their own conclusions as to how worthwhile it is.
I am, in fact, Superman. Every morning I wake up and go into a telephone booth and change my costume, and then go to work.
I’m a registered Independent. But my brother says it’s obvious that I’m a Republican sympathizer. Once I get in the voting booth, it doesn’t matter.
I have an ideological umbilical cord with the BJP… we are three-generation party supporters… my grandfather was a swayamsevak, my mother, a BJP booth activist.
There are times when I’m under the weather and the corporate machine tries to put me in the recording booth anyway. It’s always up to me to say, ‘Guys, listen to me, listen to what I sound like. I’m not myself.’
There is no evidence at all that a voting booth was hacked or one person’s vote in America was taken from Trump candidate to Clinton candidate.
The best is to go into a train station that I’ve built and buy a ticket. The guy in the ticket booth might recognize me, which is a marvelous feeling, but it might be that he doesn’t and I go in like any other passenger, except that I enter with a critical eye, looking to see how it’s held up.
Reading an audio book is a very odd experience because there are three people sitting out there while you’re reading in this glass booth, and you can see their reactions.
