I decided to restore 'Napoleon' after a widescreen festival at the Odeon Leicester Square in 1968. It was run by Richard Arnell and George Dunning, who animated and directed 'Yellow Submarine,' and they'd got their hands on the last scene, the triptychs. They just showed that part, without music and with the projectors misaligned.
I decided to retire from show business at the age of 17, because I didn't like it a bit.
I decided to run for Congress because when I was approached as a community leader, I felt that one of the things that spoke to me most was the constituent services.
I decided to run for governor because I got mad... I want to make government more directly accountable to the people.
I decided to say goodbye to everyone who has a problem with me living life.
I decided to see how my voice sounds on different type of records. So I did Eminem and the Biggie, Florence and the Machine, and Muse covers. A couple of them just came from some jam sessions between me and my sister in her bedroom at my father's house in San Diego.
I decided to set out to prove that you could make a reasonable living building for the poor using recycled materials and only hiring unskilled labor.
I decided to start a medical training program for freelancers, only freelancers. They're the ones who are doing most of the combat reporting. They're taking most of the risks. They're absorbing most of the casualties. And they're the most underserved and under-resourced of everyone in the entire news business.
I decided to start embracing and wearing my natural hair, but there was only one problem; I didn't know what to do with it or how to style it. Growing up, all I knew was my relaxed, processed hair, so I had to go through this learning phase.
I decided to start my own label because so many people with talent come to me wanting to know how they can get in the music business.
I decided to start professionally making music at about 11. I was like, 'Okay, this is something I really want to do.'
I decided to stay in bed until noon. Maybe by then half the world would be dead and it would only be half as hard to take.
I decided to stop drinking while it was still my idea.
I decided to stop drinking with creeps. I decided to drink only with friends. I've lost 30 pounds.
I decided to study special education and fell in love with working with individuals with autism. That's what I planned to do with my life.
I decided to take God and organized religion seriously, and to reject the secular life which in my teens had looked attractive because it allowed me to act in any way that I wanted.
I decided to take my foot off the pedal with all the detail. I'm sure after 'Animalia' and 'The Eleventh Hour,' readers thought that's what to expect from Graeme Base. With 'The Sign of the Seahorse,' I took a step away from the puzzle-book genre -- that was more of an adventure story.
I decided to teach because I think that any person who studies philosophy has to be involved actively.
I decided to try celibacy because I heard it would help the meditation, and I tried meditation because I heard it would help with the music. So, it all really comes back to the music.
