haley nahman on chef claire saffitz, who has a sleep cycle i relate to:

She’s often late, she says. She’s a night owl and a morning person and she also needs a lot of sleep. This combination can prove tricky, especially because she hates keeping people waiting—but also not that much, she clarifies.

Portrait of a girl who hasn’t washed her hair in a week and stayed up until 1am last night reading every caption of a random girl’s Instagram then had to wake up early for therapy which ran over making her late to work which was so packed with meetings she couldn’t work on any writing which she can’t write anyway due to her brain atrophying from watching Love Island but at least she thought to wear tights under her jeans because it’s snowing

my days of writing with idiots

Posted: January 11th, 2020 | No Comments »

from allee morris’s creative independent interview:

Because I’ve been conscious of it for almost 40 years now, I can feel when I’m about to hit the saturation point where everything I’m doing is going to make me miserable, afraid, conscious of needing a hit—all conditions that I don’t do well under. So I think I just make an overall practice of being very careful about who I collaborate with. My days of writing with idiots just because they’re famous are over.


never let the lyric get in the way of the groove

from the obituary of songwriter and artist and all-around inspiration, allee morris (inspired to learn more about her from this interview):
“September,” [written by morris], released in 1978, was an instant smash and went on to become a staple at wedding receptions, with its driving beat and its opening lines, “Do you remember/The 21st night of September?,” all but guaranteed to propel people onto the dance floor.
 
She told NPR in 2014 that while she was working on the song with Maurice White, the leader of Earth, Wind & Fire, she was annoyed by the recurring nonsense phrase he had written, “Ba-dee-ya.” She asked Mr. White what it meant, and he said, “Who cares?” That led her to a revelation: “I learned my greatest lesson ever in songwriting from him, which was never let the lyric get in the way of the groove.”

just kept thinking about this cover, even after five months
