Back-lit writing, not back-lot writing.” —Joss Whedon on what his summer plans were before Dollhouse got picked up [Complex]

“I’ve been an atheist all my life but I always knew that if my mum asked me when she was dying if there was a heaven I’d say yes. I’d lie. I think that’s how religion started — as a good lie.

I don’t think you have to treat something that comes down on one side as propaganda.” —Ricky Gervais on religion [Showbiz Spy]

“I’m kind of thinking I want to do my record like a mesh between ‘Lovefool’ by the Cardigans and ‘The Sign’ by Ace of Base. I want to make songs that people want to hold hands and roller-skate to.” —Katy Perry, aspiring Swede [Contact Music]

“I would like to be 70 years old and lay on the piano and have a whiskey and be, like, ‘give Mama a kiss.’” —Lykke Li on her ultimate ambition [Movies Blog/MTV]
