Chris Hardwick Quotes

  • Bowling is all physics and energy distribution. It’s F = ma. So it is actually one of the most scientific sports because it literally is just a ball and a surface and objects to knockdown.
  • For me personally, I have a fear of, ‘If I stop, I’m going to die.’ If I stop doing the things that are enriching to me or creatively exciting to me or if I stop creating, then I feel stagnant. If something isn’t growing, it’s dying.
  • Videogames make you feel like you’re actually doing something. Your brain processes the tiered game achievements as real-life achievements. Every time you get to the next level, hot jets of reward chemical coat your brain in a lathery foam, and it seems like you’re actually accomplishing stuff.
  • In the end, all that time I spent in the ‘Star Wars’ universe fostered galaxies of creativity and made me a better person here on Earth, because it taught me that everyone counts. That’s why I can sincerely and with a straight face say: ‘May the Force be with you.’
  • We’re not in an information age anymore. We’re in the information management age.
  • I think for a lot of people, bowling is sort of a joke. But I love it, and it means a lot to me, so any chance to help promote it or celebrate it or not make the hackiest jokes – ‘Bowlers are like plumbers and they wear the craziest shirts!’ – I’m way into.
  • My father was one of the greatest professional bowlers of all time. Seriously. Billy Hardwick: PBA Hall of Fame, Player of the Year in ’63 and ’69, and the first winner of the triple crown of bowling, among other things.
  • Bowling really was a big American sport in the ’50s, ’60s, and ’70s, and then it kind of died off in the ’80s.
  • I think when I look out and I see there’s so much negativity in the world and a lot of people are unhappy and a lot of people are anxious, it just feels like that’s one view of the world. But you don’t have to always focus on that view of the world.
  • Trying to make strangers laugh is crazy and more than a little narcissistic.
  • For any nerd who grew up around the time that I did, BBC programming was a treasure chest for us.
  • I’ve gone from being bullied by jocks as a kid to being bullied by nerds as an adult.
  • Comic-Con is interesting because there’s so much going on at once, it’s literally impossible to do everything. You need clones and some sort of hoverboard so you can surf over the crowd of packed-in nerds.
  • Steve Martin said that philosophy is good for comedy because it screws up your thinking just enough, and I agree with that. Being forced to see life’s metadata is good training for looking for interesting angles on a topic.
  • Real philosophy is like trying to read an alarm system installation manual in Korean.
  • American television constantly tries to co-op British comedy and create their own version of it. Most of the time it doesn’t work; obviously, in the case of ‘The Office,’ it did. But a lot of times, it doesn’t really work.
  • Traditionally nerd-based culture is now a big sector of pop culture.
  • If you do a joke that’s really old, then what happens is people on Reddit and Twitter just go, ‘Real original, you’re just doing old jokes!’ But bands do it all the time.
  • Any time you’re lucky enough to get on a show people watch, it’s a good thing.
  • Don’t tell television, but there is some superior programming being made on the Interwebz.
  • I think the mistake a lot of people make with new media is they just focus on one thing. But anyone thing – just doing podcasts or just having a website or just doing television – isn’t enough anymore.
  • When you first start working, you take whatever job is offered, because you have to build your resume. But you don’t think about what you’re building.
  • The lifeblood of YouTube is sharing.
  • I had a personal blog, but why does anyone care that I went shopping for hats?
  • In the ’90s, you couldn’t say the word ‘nerd’ to someone when pitching a show. They would have considered that too niche and wouldn’t have listened.
  • I’ve been out of work so many times in my life that relying too much on just one job is terrifying.
  • I don’t know if I’m a Twitter addict. That seems kind of harsh. I would say it’s more that I’m seriously involved. That it’s a long-term relationship – like a girlfriend, which my actual girlfriend loves to hear.
  • A big company is like trying to steer a luxury liner.
  • Comedy has sort of been my life-long obsession. I literally obsessed over comedy. I really didn’t play sports – for me it was just comedy, computers and chess club; those were my big things.
  • You don’t need 30 million people to listen to your podcast. If 10,000 people listen to your podcast, which is not a hard number to achieve, then 10,000 people are listening, and you can build a community, and literally change the world just by recording into a microphone.
  • The podcast movement was really a creative survival mechanism for standup comics.

Ron Perlman, America’s Uncle, is on a new @id10t podcast right now! I love this dude. I keep bugging him about doing even a 15 minute a week podcast of his own but I’m not sure he will. If he does it should be called “The Ronicles of Ronnia”. Maybe if you say his name three times he’ll appear and do it??
