cali dreamin

I've been "trying" to get into the habit of writing down my dreams when I wake up. There's definitely an art to it and I can't say I'm very good yet, but every so often I awake from a deep sleep in a groggy limbo-state that allows me to, albeit somewhat retardedly, jot down the details of whatever happened so clearly just before. Obstacles include not finding a paper or pen in time, falling back to sleep, going to the bathroom, and just generally not remembering/ caring.

Rereading the ones I've written is always exciting and fresh and totally fucking batshit goofy. In a way it's kind of like trapping thoughts from one world and bringing them into another. Like fireflies. OOOH...


NEW BLAKECITY.COM CONTEST

Hey readers, draw a picture of this dream I had. Click to enlarge. Translation follows.



"DREAM" (lol dreams are always in italics)

"TWO GIRLS CLIMB UP A SKYSCRAPER with a complex harness/ metal bungee system,
Where they have suction cups on their hands.
When one jumps off the topfloor bungee line (?)
the cord snaps and she goes flying into the water.
Somehow both ?...

There is a boat nearby with scuba and safety equipment but it has no paddles.

Michael Cera is in another boat, wearing strap sandals and socks.
He has little sympathy."

Please spend as little time as possible. Best picture wins a cookie.

Also here is a song I have been listening to all day. For anyone who likes Burial or dubstep or just a dark, intense/mellow (?), trippy sort of Rap-jam, here is Pinch. Let it soak in.

your dream inspired me to take a more modern, impressionist approach.
