    Ten things you should know about H.P. Lovecraft

    3. He rarely went out in public during daylight

    Lovecraft would only leave the house after sunset, staying up late to study science and astronomy and to read and write. He would routinely sleep late into the day, developing the pale and gaunt bearing he is now known for. Lovecraft’s mother reportedly called him “grotesque” during his childhood and warned him to hide inside so people couldn’t see him. In 1926, he wrote:

    I am essentially a recluse who will have very little to do with people wherever he may be. I think that most people only make me nervous - that only by accident, and in extremely small quantities, would I ever be likely to come across people who wouldn’t.

    Broken Flowers (2005)

    • The Kid: So, as just a guy who gave another guy a sandwich, you have any philosophical tips or anything, for a guy on a kind of road trip?
    • Don Johnston: You asking me?
    • The Kid: Yeah.
    • Don Johnston: Well, the past is gone, I know that. The future isn't here yet, whatever it's going to be. So, all there is, is this. The present. That's it.

    Nile Rodgers: «On New Year’s Eve, 1977, we were invited to meet with Grace Jones at Studio 54. She wanted to interview us about recording her next album. At that time, our music was fairly popular — “Dance, Dance, Dance" was a big hit and "Everybody Dance”, although more underground, was doing very well, too — but Grace Jones didn’t leave our name at the door and the doorman wouldn’t let us in. Our music might be playing inside, but the place was packed for New Year’s Eve and this was early in our career. Anyway, my apartment happened to be one block away, so Bernard and I went there to sort of quell our sorrows. We grabbed a couple of bottles of champagne from the corner liquor store and then went back to my place, plugged in our instruments and started jamming. You see, music was not only our livelihood, it was also our entertainment and recreation. And since we were feeling bad, we played music to make us feel good. We started jamming on the now-famous riff — Bernard and I were particularly good at making up riffs and jamming together. We were really into jamming and we’d often start writing songs that way, sometimes drawing on ideas that were floating around. In this case, however, the riff was super, super simple, so it didn’t have to be pre-planned. It was just something that happened. I had always liked the [Cream] song “Sunshine of your Love”, and I wanted to do a sort of riff song for Chic, although not a complete linear riff — that wouldn’t be like Chic — so I incorporated a little linear lick and we started singing, “Fuck off!" [Repeats the lick.] "Aaaaahh, fuck off!" We were so pissed off at what had happened. I mean, it was Studio 54, it was New Year’s Eve, it was Grace Jones, and we were wearing the most expensive outfits that we had — back then, in the late ’70s, our suits must have cost us a couple of thousand bucks each, and our really fancy shoes had got soaked trudging through the snow. So "Fuck Off" was a protest song, and we actually thought it was pretty good.»

    By not getting what we wanted, we got more than we ever could’ve imagined.

    "Sally watches her daughter and worries.
    She knows what happens when you bottle up your sorrow, she knows what she’s done to herself, the walls she’s built, the tower she’s made, stone by stone.
    But they’re walls of grief, and the tower is drenched in a thousand tears, and that’s no protection; it will all fall to the ground with one touch.
    "

    [Alice Hoffman, Practical Magic]
