It's Not That ...
Topic: Miscellaneous 12:27 am EDT, Jul  1, 2007

It's not that I don't have things to say, because on any day of the week, I usually have plenty to say about everything, it's just that do I have anything to say that all of you want to hear?

While we love Angelina and her classic Hollywood style any day of the week, we didn’t quite get the tan almond-toe pumps.

What's more, you only have to read the papers any day of the week to see that infidelity is a subject which preoccupies Britain.

It's not that the polygamy angle completely lost its allure, but ...

I don't care that the polygamy angle is supposed to provide us another example of the ways HBO pushes storytelling boundaries.

Seinfeld, promoting his new film Bee Movie, said of bees, "They have no crime, they have no drugs, they have no rape. A little rape, but it's not that bad."

"After the TV series, I didn't really want to do anything -- and I still don't," Seinfeld said Tuesday.

When Katzenberg asked Seinfeld, "Why bees?" the comic replied that he has long been impressed by their "organizational society."

Although the negative repercussions of an organizational society leap quickly to mind, the systemic consequences are not all negative.

In this way, the Artemis archetype represents a capacity for resisting the fall into 'Organization Man' (Whyte 1956) or the 'Organizational Society' (Presthus 1978), which uses patterns of rewards, sanctions and other inducements to achieve social conformity. Symbolic management (Berg 1986; Alvesson 1990) again represents an important ideological tool in the desire to inculcate images for social compliance and the internalization of corporate values and goals. The Artemis archetype, therefore, is important in the contemporary era for preserving individual integrity and difference.

It's not that prosecutors didn't know where Rico's body was -- it's in a landfill.

Roxanne Smith of the federal Environmental Protection Agency in Washington, D.C., said it's not illegal to dump animal carcasses in a landfill.

A load of animal carcasses spilled from a big rig onto the westbound Pomona (60) Freeway at Crossroads Parkway in Industry today, causing a traffic nightmare for motorists.

"If they try to do that during the daytime, it would probably be a little bit of a traffic nightmare," said police Sgt. Timothy Berry.

So it's not -- you know, it's not that degree of seriousness, let's say, of narcotics trafficking or violent crime. But we do have to enforce the law.

"In all seriousness, that belt buckle is the holy grail of ultra-running, and everyone wants one."

"I'm with my kids and I wear the same tracksuit every day. It's not that interesting," said Pam, 40. "I have one Baywatch swimsuit left which I put on every once in a while for my boyfriends, just for fun."

"Trying to depict everything is a fool’s game, and ultimately not that interesting -- because it’s just as confusing and complicated as life. So then the task becomes limiting your scope, and within a limited scope providing amazing complexity and depth."

"It's not that I'm addicted to cigarettes ... I don't know why I do it."

"It's not that I'm addicted to TV, but I was missing out on time with my family in the evenings," Edmiston said of losing the closed captioning feature after switching to HDTV.

It's not that I've lost willpower, or character, or gumption. It's that I've lost patience with pointless things.

Leonard's gumption gets him into a bit of a bind; His stand against dibs on parade spots has him explaining and apologizing

"It's not that there's more cats, it's that there's more people trying to do right."

"It's not that there was hanky panky in the establishment of these (Korean) businesses, it's more of their lack of awareness ..."

"We must have had hanky panky" in the shark tank, he thought.

Oh, and "hanky panky" traces to the old magician’s ploy of using a handkerchief in one hand to distract the audience from noticing what the other hand was doing.

"It's not that hard. I just use my hand as a spatula."

And it's not that Alba doesn't want to do what's popular. She just wants to do it her way.

I'm just like, "Oh my god, how does she do it?" She's tall, but she's not even a beast.'

I'm just, like, in his arms, all snug. I'm his first ever girlfriend and we've been together 18 months. My ideal night with him is playing Dungeons & Dragons on Xbox or painting Warhammer figurines.

It's not that the extreme-teen plots weren't classic.

"It's not that diving doesn't have a lot of skills to learn," said Hurin, who has been a scuba instructor for 35 years. "I'm just not sure a terrorist is going to bother getting a lot of training."

It's not that hard to draw the line on how many Roman candles to sell to a customer, he said.

It's not that universities are mean, but nobility doesn't exempt you from economics.

"It's what other people put on them even though they want to feel and look Canadian. It's not that they want to be classified as being outside the norm."

It's not that the new wave of films are morally reprehensible or have the very fabric of society in their sights; they're just unspeakably nasty.

You know, it's easy to forget in my job how unspeakably dope a pair of scissor doors are.

It's not that I'm relaxed now. It's just that I have a good anxiety rather than a bad anxiety.

It's not that I wanted to make a musical change. It's not that I wanted to make a more profound album. I just wanted to write songs and pick the best ones.

Maybe it's not that Gmail is smarter than me. It just has more chutzpah.

Although they refused a challenge to sing live there and then to prove it, there is something hugely infectious about the band's chutzpah. Even the man from the Sunday Times was feeling it.

"It is much less infectious, but it is not non-infectious," said Mario Raviglione, head of WHO's Stop TB Department.

It's not that mine is better because it's clean.

It's not that we're intellectually incapable, either. Americans keep exhaustive amounts of data in their heads about sports, celebrities, frighteningly banal television shows and all manner of other distractions.

"It's not that I need to have the first one, but I want it."

"It's not that we're unsympathetic. We're not blasé about pigeons. We are concerned."

It's not that they weren't on the same page; they weren't reading the same book.

"If it weren’t for this issue, Steve Levy and I would be on the same page on 90 percent of the legislation that gets done in this county."

Everyone's reading the same book. "It really brings people together. Even if they disagree, it sparks discussion and thought, instead of I hate you."

It's not that I don't enjoy a fat ballplayer, because I do ...

Now don't get me wrong. It's not like I don't enjoy doing all of the typical girl things like getting my hair done or laying out on the beach.

His bands have sold more than 30 million records, so it's not that he needs a cut of the iced-coffee sales at Jammin' Java in Vienna, where he was performing as his acoustic folk-rock alter ego, the Nightwatchman, promoting his album "One Man Revolution."

"It's not that adolescents are bad drivers," she said. "It's that they are very vulnerable to the influences of others."
