"I discovered that sugar makes me happy and inspires me. I'd get so wound up that I had to rush home and write. Sugar is granulated happiness. It's a friend."

"Things got bleak at times [during Eraserhead], but they were bleak in a fun way. I think it was sugar that helped me a lot. I went to Bob's Big Boy, which is a restaurant out here. Every afternoon, at 2:30, was Bob's time. I'd have a chocolate shake and several cups of coffee. I got such a rush from the sugar that a lot of times I felt much happier than I really was."
