“I like owning a little bit of the media. Podcasting, blogging, Twitter, and now Just Sayin. The most important thing for me has always been artistic freedom. Some people say I’m a control freak. I can never argue with them. Art is no place for democracy. One of my favorite sayings is, “A camel is a horse designed by committee.” I told Karl [Pilkington] this and he said, ‘I’d ask the committee which one of them came up with the hump.’ Haha.”

-Comedian Ricky Gervais, in an interview with Cyndi Stivers that appears in the November/December issue of the Columbia Journalism Review
