Oddly, the military world is one of great sameness. There is an orderly quality to life on an army base, and even the children of the military are brought up with that sense of order and sameness.
People used to feel oddly empowered to tell me all the reasons I couldn’t win. Because I was a woman. Because I was a lesbian. Because I was from the West Side of Manhattan.
Oddly, I do have a problem with authority. I find it very difficult to knuckle down and follow rules. Which are the classic symptoms of someone who has a troubled relationship with their father. And yet, I never had a problem with my father.

Oddly, in a sense, I still have more confidence as a director than my ability as a writer. Somehow, directing is just really easy. It’s just about being really honest about how you feel about what you’re seeing.
I come from an artistic family. My dad‘s an actor, my mother‘s an actress, my sister‘s an actress. So I kind of grew up in that kind of environment. Oddly enough, I never really knew about my parentswork. I’ve seen small clips of it, but we never actually spoke about the business.
Portia Doubleday

When we began working on Parque Pumalin, rumours flew that we were establishing a nuclear waste site for the United States or, oddly for Episcopalians, which we both are, setting up a Jewish state. It would be funny if these theories weren’t being taken very seriously.

Oddly enough, even though our show is structured around women, our target audience is women, I get more calls from men every night than women.

Mesh networking is an old idea. Oddly enough, the low-cost XO Laptop built by the ‘One Laptop Per Child’ organization – the so-called $100 laptop – was designed with built-in mesh networking. The idea with the XO machine was that many kids using those laptops would be out in rural areas without reliable Internet access.

Ann Robinson
I learn new things about what ‘The Roomdoes wrong or oddly every time I see it with a crowd.
The point of remaking ‘Straw Dogs‘ is not to replicate the philosophies of Sam Peckinpah at all. What made that film singular was the attitude that he brought to the characters. Oddly enough, that’s the one thing that I really wanted to change.
The Indians seemed to be living in a place and in a way that was of immense importance to me. So I associate learning to read – English, oddly enough – with wanting to know about Indians. I’m still growing into it. I’ve never outgrown that.
Oddly, I feel more protected when I write in Italian, even though I’m also more exposed.

Only an artist as preternaturally acute and copacetic, as oddly visionary and just odd as Richard Artschwager, would be able to lay out the whole course of human evolution and have it make some kind of sense while also seeming like a dazzling insight.
I have a particular love of an actor that I did work with, oddly, in ‘Donnie Brasco,’ who has since become a wonderful talent: Paul Giamatti. I would love to do a whole movie with Paul Giamatti.
