Sometimes when I watch very famous people on television, they make me long for death! These utterly pitiful little exhibitionists who don't nourish anyone but just talk very loudly are now actually guiding us and telling us what to think. I think, 'Well, one day I'll be dead and then I'll get away from you.'Tom Baker
