dave q was teaching a course at evergreen on feminist theory.
starry sarah and i were dating, but we were going through a messy break up.
i played a free jazz set in london, which was poorly reviewed and i was desperate for no one to find out. (hah! like that would be a problem.)

I had this dream two nights ago that I was at some weird house with my ex boyfriend and his friend from Montreal, except I don't know what his friend actually looks like so in my mind apparently he's been physically replaced by Fred Solinger. So anyhow, I'm at this house and for some reason I'm in a bikini and my ex is being really weird and laughing like Tom Hulse in Amadeus, and his friend is hitting on me, but not like in a hitting on me way, more of in a mean way, like he's hitting on me but just to embarass me. Then he wouldn't like leave and for some reason we were trying to have sex but he wouldn't go away, so then he starts hitting on me again, then the ex is laughing like that again, and I'm like, okay, fuck this, I'm going to leave and just as I'm thinking this and getting really upset, my friend Jus calls me and is screaming at me, "We're at Potion! Where the fuck are you? Get your ass over here!" So I left for Potion, in my bikini.

Not that this has anything to do with ILX, but it's still a weird ass dream.

I dreamt I read a really bad story of Mandee's about some woman having sex.

if it's any consolation nancy I'll dream about you so you can get back at jess

I've had a week of really odd dreams.

Sunday: Lots of different dreams, but all about horses Monday: Weird, there was an end of the world ball, I was supposed to be going, but said I'd get there later. I went to a kind of run down lido place instead. There were lots of pools looking over a lake. There were dead trees, all white, forming a screen in front of the lake, and they were full of children climbing and sitting in them like starlings. There were also a group of oldladies from Florida peddling about in gingham pedelos. When I got back to my friends the end of the world ball had finsihed, it only lasted 45 minutes. We sat about and waited for the end of the world. Last night: I got made president of the USA for no reason and spent the whole night argueing about free hea

Hey Jess, was I a hottie in yr dream? Actually sadly I probably looked no different to my WOOF WOOF usual hence messy breakup chiz chiz. OR was it messy cos my supermodel eating disordered coke addict lifestyle was putting an insufferable strain on our relationship, eh eh?

I had a dream that I had eaten quarters of oranges but had bitten into the pith too deeply. Then I realised that it wasn't a dream but an occurrence last Friday night at a chinese restaurant.I felt fuggy.

How do you all actually remember dreams, I only remember that I had some dreams, and pretty instantly I forget what they were about.

the only dream I can remember in the last year was about Elton John.

And you actually WANT to remember more of them after that? Blimey.

Emma, Thursday, 9 May 2002 00:00 (eighteen years ago) link

I suppose that's a good point but if I am having dreams about Elton I'd rather know what exactly is going on than have him left to his own devices in my head.

I had a long mostly boring dream just before I woke up this morning that I had to go to the local United Nations office (which doesn't exist, obv)and it was just a crappy little gov't office like where you would go to get your driver's license renewed or something. One of the employees called another woman in line "a dirty Jew" and I got into a huge fight with him and I said "This is a fine way for you people to act, no wonder the world's such a mess!" while I pointed out world trouble spots on a big weather-man map. Finally they apologized and put me on the phone with Morgan Freeman who told me that the offensive United Nations clerk would be fired. I felt guilty about getting him in trouble but figured he really shouldn't be working for the UN with that attitude anyway.

I told geeta this one but just before the Matos FAP I dreamed that geeta was having an arranged marriage. She was very happy and showed me her engagement ring. It was pretty, a ruby.

Previously I had dreamed that Jody Beth Rosen was the significant other of Mike Hanle y. I told Jody Beth that one at the Matos FAP also.

I had a dream last night but I can't remember what it was. I hardly ever remember them.

Last week, I dreamed about doing something kind of interesting, but I don't remember what that was, either. Except afterwards (still in the dream) I was telling someone I used to know about 1,000 years ago about it and they just didn't understand any of it and I was getting angry with them. Part of my explanation had something to do with Laurel & Hardy, which is really quite disturbing.

Also last week, I dreamed about someone being sexually/romantically interested in me, but it wasn't anyone I know and nothing actually happened. Obviously, the utterly surreal theme of this one made it pretty lucid. :)

ChristineSH, Wednesday, 5 March 2003 02:24 (seventeen years ago) link

about 4 days ago i had a bizarre dream, i thought about posting at ilm but this is just as good.

i was listening to the radio at work and it was this great song i'd never heard before, sounded like old orbital - brown album type caliber. and the dj comes on and says the song is by 'hitler'. yes the hitler, he went on to say hitler had faked his death at the end of ww2 and retired to his ultra-secret underground layer to work on his true passion and create the world best pop album.

it was a great song, really catchy bass line.

A polar bear had gotten into my house and curled up on the floor in my bedroom. Carly Rae Jepson had recorded an album of duets with BradNelson and it was playing in a speaker somewhere that I couldn't find. I was running around in a panicked state pulling every plug in the house trying to shut the music off because it was so loud and I really needed to call the Department of Natural Resources about the bear.

just remembered a dream I had the other day where in addition to the Admin Log we know and love there was also a log of changes to user's moderator permissions, resembling the ordinary ilx board interface, but instead of a thread it was like "so and so got promoted to moderator". And thus also a list of current moderators.

I dreamed last night that I was asked to speak on a panel at PopCon. The panel had nothing to do with pop music, the topic was "The Human Race: does it deserve to survive?" We were going down the table, everyone was introducing themselves, giving a snip of their CV. A woman two seats to my right said "I am a birth survivor" and the crowd tittered and the woman raised her voice "yes, my birth was traumatic, and so has been the life that followed, and I am a survivor!!!"

I had another dream in which I made a post to ILX, except this time it was in the middle of a bizarre series of dreams. I've been feeling extremely ill since the beginning of the month and was operating on ridiculously little sleep until three nights ago, at which point I began catching up on all the sleep my illness was preventing me from getting. As a result, I've been experiencing a massive amount of dreams per night lately, all jumbled together in a bizarre dream collage. In the middle of one of those dream collages, I remember stopping the dream-action to sit in front of a computer and post something to ILX. It wasn't an existing thread or anything, just something that coincidentally happened to touch on a topic I was dreaming about at that moment; because of that, I felt I had to contribute in the dream version of ILX. Living the dream right now, let me tell you.

A bit rude to get to this so late, I know, but it was lovely having you at my home, Josh in Chicago and frogbs. I hope you enjoyed the ham sandwiches I grilled for you, as it was my first attempt at anything so simultaneously outré and unnecessary.

There used to be memes on ilx like who is Lou1s J4gger, ban Lou1s J4gger, and Lou1s J4gger plays a vacuum cleaner. Today's internet user has memes too, of course, but they are a different type."

i was clambering around the floor in a back room of a corner shop from my hometown - the old pakistani shop owner was there also. the fridge was stocked with so many weird brands of soda that didn't even look appetitzing. "malt" drinks. i was pretending to look for something that i didn't have, something small. i felt guilty. i overheard a faint story someone was telling. a man wanted to split a purchase with me over a bottle of 'ulls' water (Lake Ullswater is a lake in England). it tasted like the earth, and you could see all the sediment floating away in the drink - but the bottle looked like naptha spirits. i was in the back room again, looking for a harmonica; i knew that they didn't sell any, but there were two old ones atop a really dusty cabinet. i thought about stealing them but i knew they were just toys, and too sentimental to the owner. i turned back away from the refrigerator to the sound of a small crowd singing me happy birthday - except, they weren't sure of my name... so everytime they'd get to it - "happy birthday to...", there was a stifled pause between all of them.

then, writing to a friend on the computer about a woman i'd dreamt of. she was angry that i'd used her pastry. i was joking about it to her, saying "well karen it's a mushroom pie now and it's not fucking coming back".

So I had my first semi-ILX-related dream the other night and it was one of the most terrifying of my life.

I was trapped miles underground with some other ILXors and the only way out was to climb a metal ladder that was in a shaft the diameter of a manhole. For miles and miles. It was known that there was a problem at some juncture in the ladder/shaft that would require manipulating the ladder or a gap somehow (this was not clear) making the climb even more dangerous. We begin the climb and I realize that I am in the middle of the climbers and if I fall I will take out the climbers below me, which include upper mississippi sh@kedown. I am not crazy about ladders and the dream was wave after wave of the most intense fear of heights/falling.

I woke up and my shirt was absolutely soaked through.

Last night I dreamt that a large contingent of UK ILXors moved in with me. It was actually my mom's house, and I'm not sure how she feels about it or where you're all going to sleep, but it felt like the least I could do given your newfound circumstances. This might, though, be an instance where intention and impact are wildly divergent.

two weeks pass...

I was sitting down for lunch with my wife and parents and the National Mall, which had become an Actual Mall, when I realized that I was only wearing jeans and no shirt. I decided that I would need to at least need to change into shorts to make myself presentable for dining, so I set off in search of a JC Penney. "I'll be back in 5 minutes," I told them. But the Mall was so huge that I was having trouble finding JC Penney.

It was then that I ran into frequent dream guest-star Karl Malone! He was already wearing shorts and had a shirt on, but agreed to help me in my quest. As we turned a corner, we came to a storefront-turned-office that we knew was the headquarters of unspeakable evil. Some real estate or stockbroking company or something. We steeled ourselves as we walked in, prepared to ask the receptionist if she knew where JC Penney was, and hoping that we wouldn't be sussed out for whatever it was we were guilty of in their eyes. Fortunately, no one was in there and we were able to walk straight through.

On the other side, there was a shoe shine booth, staffed by an old man with a pushbroom mustache. We asked him if he knew where JC Penney was. He replied that we might want to check out a store called "Black Tie White Tie" instead. I'm thinking that this is some amalgam of real-life mall women's fashion store Black Market White House and David Bowie's album Black Tie White Noise, which Alfred had mentioned on the US Politics thread yesterday. It was then that the old man's phone started to ring. And everybody's phone started to ring. As the old man answered, his face drew into a rictus of horror. He couldn't speak a word. And I had left my phone back on the table with my family.

I was back in college at some state university. When I got to my history class, who was the professor but Saddam Hussein! He was looking young, trim, healthy. And as the students filed in for class, he was showing off his cool Iraqi tambourine. It wasn't like any actual instrument - it was very big and blue and had many more bells and jingles attached to it. He was very proud of it and hoped to win us over with his Iraqi tambourine songs. But I thought quietly to myself - I can't believe the school hired a brutal dictator to teach a history class. Just then, Mr. Hussein received word that his offer of employment had been rescinded. I guess the school was reading my mind or something. With a downcast expression, he excused himself from the classroom but urged us students to never stop learning.

After class, I found myself outside of a moderately-large craftsman house with Karl Malone. Karl, I have no idea why you keep ending up in my ILX

I keep accidentally hitting Tab and then Enter instead of shift. This is irritating. ANYWAYS.

...ILX dreams.

Karl had a window unit air conditioner and said that he wasn't sure if he was going to install it. And I was like "it sure is hot out here, why wouldn't you install it?" But then I remembered that Karl is an avid environmentalist and probably wants to cut down on electricity use to reduce carbon emissions. But he says he would like to install it, but just doesn't know how. And I, having done this a few dozen times, offered to help. "See, we could put it in this downstairs window, but you could also install it in an upstairs room and the air would flow down and partially cool the downstairs as well, depending on whether you wanted to leave a door open up there." Karl thanked me for my expertise and set off to find an extension cord while I put the AC in.

I realized that this was some kind of cooperative student housing, with lots of students and resident life staff coming and going. I went to look in the basement and it was huge! Unfinished and dusty, but it was the size of a warehouse. I have dreamed of huge basements before and I thought to myself "this is the basement of my dreams." That phrase kept repeating itself in my mind. I ran back into Karl - he had a backpack slung over his shoulder, heading back to class. As we walked toward the exit of the house through the living room, we entered a field of clocks. I mentioned something I had read, that if you look at a clock once and read a specific time, but then you look away and look back and see a different time, you're in a dream. And then exactly that happened! I enthusiastically showed Karl, who was like "cool, I'll see you later" and left. I was very excited to realize that I was dreaming and tried to exercise some willpower over the situation. I decided to walk back upstairs in the house and found a huge spread of food. It was supposed to be like, your standard spread of cheese and fruits, but nothing looked recognizable. Weird blue and green shapes. Suddenly everything went black.

***end ilx portion of dream***

I woke up the next morning in a bed at the end of a long pier. It was parallel to a bridge and cars and trucks were driving past. I was damp all over and couldn't remember a thing, but began to recognize this as a cheap hotel that I occasionally frequented. I made my way to the front desk, which was three old ladies standing in a small deli where the pier met the land. I struggled to form my words or coherent thoughts.

"How much'll it be?"
"Forty-five dollars."
"Five dollars? Ok."
"FORTY-five dollars."
"Isn't usually a bit cheaper?"
"Tell that to all the young ladies causing a ruckus in my hotel last night."

Young ladies? And I couldn't remember them? Just my luck.

I tried to get some money out of my wallet, but it was all soggy and sticking together. I didn't have enough money, but remembered I had some bucket hats in my backpack. When I opened it, an empty bottle of booze fell out. The counter women were looking at me with a mixture of amusement and scorn. I pulled out of the stack of bucket hats, each with a denomination embroidered on it: $5, $5, $10. One of the women turned to her friend and said "I'll have to see if management will accept this." They all had a chuckle over this. I finally asked if they had an ATM and they pointed me around the corner. As I walked past, a mother shielded her child's eyes from the sight of me. I kept thinking about Saddam. I swiped my debit card in the ATM and woke up, for real this time.

Last night I had an extended anthology of dreams in which “budo jeru” appeared as both:

1) the name of an overpaid rookie football player, like a johnny manziel type, and

2) a macguffin, some arcane engine part that would contribute a significant multiplier to power output.

No ilxors in my dream this time, but I was waiting in a really long line at a coffee shop. When I finally got to the front, the clerk asked for my order. I said, "What's the name of those cookies you're so famous for?" He replied, "Oh, you mean the Acura ILX!"

harbl made a non-speaking cameo as the in-house attorney for a haunted food factory in Halethorpe that was desperately trying to cover up evidence of an interdimensional rift on its premises while still giving tours to the public!

I ran into Dr. Morbius in my dream last night. He was smiling and we waved goodbye to each other.

Last Night:

Perhaps a couple of months before the dream's present I had posted a Spotify playlist on ILM trying to capture the vibe of living in the Mid-Atlantic states (MD/DE/PA/NJ) and specifically, maybe, OCMD. The only musical artist from the playlist that I recall was John Mellencamp.

In the dream present, I am in OCMD and I pull up ILM and see that JCLC has started a new thread and written an essay-length post exploring/interrogating the world/genre implied by my playlist. I was thrilled. Most of the dream consisted of me drafting a post in reply, the thrust of which was that a central element of this vibe/genre was the presence of MAC machines in the Mid-Atlantic region. (For those unfamiliar, MAC, or Money Access Center, was what an ATM was called in this region in the late 80s/early 90s. They had a very distinctive blue color with a white MAC logo on rainbow stripes).

A song I could not quite identify was playing while I was composing my post but upon waking was confirmed to be The Incredible String Band's "You Get Brighter."

had a dream that twitter changed their terms of service to say that gwar fans couldn't use the site and instead had to use a separate site called 'gwitter'

This is still cracking me up.
