    1. Strange Record Playing Machines

      by , 12-26-2017 at 05:39 PM (...from the dark corners of my mind...)
      DJ Log: December 26, 2017 – 5:30AM (USA Eastern)

      I am floating around a familiar yard with several people, one of them is guiding us around. He is my cousin, who will be known as "J" here. He is playing several records and I am scrambling to write down the artists/tracks on random bits of paper I find laying around. We move to another part of the yard and he plays more music and I find a stack of Post-it notes and write down several titles. I look up and there are two large cylindrical "cakes" of coiled copper magnet wire with a steel pin in the center of the tops. Next to both of them is a cube of similarly caked wire. When he places a record on one of the cylinders, a group of squares illuminate on the cube. There is a section with 3 rows and 3 columns and just to the right a column with 4 rows. The illuminated squares control the music playback. There are no wires connecting any of the components.

      I look back at my notes and they are all blank. ...I think, "Oh shit, I'm dreaming. I need to remember what music this is so I can find it when I wake up." I awaken with my mind as blank as the notes. I got up and quickly sketched the strange record playing machine that I saw in the dream.

      (Note: The music that was playing was very heavily technical, yet minimalistic drum-n-bass, similar to several things in my collection from Dylan & Facs under the Biotic record label.)

    2. Lucid Flying Around in an Empty Room

      by , 11-17-2017 at 07:22 PM (...from the dark corners of my mind...)
      DJ Log: November 17, 2017 – 4:00AM (USA Eastern)

      (Note: First lucid moment in a long time. Also, first recall for a few months.)

      I am standing in an empty cement block building and for no apparent/recalled reason, I suddenly realize I am dreaming. I think for a second, "What are you supposed to do in a lucid? Oh yeah, fly." ...So I fly around the room for a little while before waking up. When I wake up, I'm kinda mad that I wasted a perfectly lucid moment just flying around inside an empty room.

    3. Yard Sales / Vintage Electronics / 3-Wheeled Bike (Fragment)

      by , 08-14-2017 at 02:19 PM (...from the dark corners of my mind...)
      DJ Log: August 14, 2017 – 6:00AM (USA Eastern)

      I am riding a 3-wheeled bike through a development, visiting several yard sales as I pass through. At one sale, I pick up various vintage electronic items, mainly things with vacuum tubes. They only want $1 for each item, so I buy them all and load up the basket on the bike. As I pedal away, I notice that the bike is very heavy.
    4. Another Facepalm Morning – Missed Signs (Fragments)

      by , 05-30-2016 at 03:28 PM (...from the dark corners of my mind...)
      DJ Log: May 30, 2016 – 7:00AM (USA Eastern)

      1. I am at my lab bench trying to turn on the two LED goose-neck lamps above my bench. The lights will not turn on when I flip the switch, so I reach in and check the bulb. The left lamp shorts out and makes sparks when I twist the bulb. The right lamp has no bulb in it at all. I completely disregard the classic light-switch dream sign, and even more stupidly tell myself, “Oh well, the lights are not supposed to work in a dream anyway.”

      2. I am helping a friend sand rusty spots on a trailer before repainting it. We are using ridiculously small pieces of sand paper that are not much larger than my finger tip. It must be magical sand paper though, because all the rust is gone with one gentle swipe, leaving the metal shiny clean.

      It seems that I’ve improved my recall recently, but now I’m back to ground-zero on dream signs and triggers. *adds to-do list item: NOTICE DREAM SIGNS!!!
    5. Flying Sea Containers (Fragment)

      by , 05-30-2016 at 03:43 AM (...from the dark corners of my mind...)
      DJ Log: May 29, 2016 – 6:30AM (USA Eastern)

      I am riding in my dad’s truck down an everyday stretch of road. I suddenly hear a loud aircraft behind us so I turn around to see what it is. To our left, I see four sea containers that are attached together and are flying low over a shopping center. As I watch them fly very low over the road behind us, I question, “How is that thing even flying?” Moments later, it crashes into the ground and pulls down a bunch of wires and a traffic light pole.

      As I awaken, I say, “...yep, that happens every day. Nothing to see here, move along. “
    6. Dream Views Trade Show Booth (Fragment)

      by , 05-30-2016 at 03:36 AM (...from the dark corners of my mind...)
      DJ Log: May ?, 2016 – ? (USA Eastern)

      (Note: This entry was forgotten on my voice recorder and I failed to record the date and time of the entry. I’m certain that it was May, but no idea which day.)

      I am at a trade show walking with a couple of familiar associates. We get our entry passes and walk onto the exhibition floor. One of the other guys tells me that they’re going to go over to our company booth. I let them know I’ll be there in a minute because I want to check out a couple of other booths. I walk for a bit and find a booth with a large banner that says “Dream Views”. I walk up and find OpheliaBlue talking with several people at the side of the booth. She waves and I wave back. As I get closer, an older guy with a nametag that says “Quirky” greets me. I ask him where Alex is and he points toward a conference room with closed blinds, saying “He’s in the middle of a meeting over there.” Just to the right of the conference room, Gab is sitting with some people at a table. I wave but she just gives me a blank stare back. I tell Quirky, “I’ll come back when they’re not so busy.”, then I walk off.
    7. Strange Toilets / Epic Dreamsign FAIL

      by , 01-12-2016 at 05:43 AM (...from the dark corners of my mind...)
      DJ Log: January 11, 2016 – 6:30AM (USA Eastern)

      I am standing near a fast food restaurant and realize that I have to use the bathroom. I walk inside and find the restroom door. When I walk through the door, it leads back outside into a chain-link fenced in area behind the restaurant. I walk up to this ring of strange looking toilets that are unusually high on a pedestal and have no walls around them. They are more like small sinks and they have foot pads beside them and no seat of any kind. There is a little stick figure illustration showing how to stand up and squat over it. I look around for a moment and see that there are several people walking around a car wash just ahead of me and everyone in the drive-thru is just outside the fence. There is no possibility of privacy here, but I really have to go. There are some other people using these things, so I figure it can’t be that bad after all. Looking around a bit more, I stop and think to myself, “This is just a dream. I don’t have to worry about anyone watching me poop.” I try to climb on top of one of the toilet things, but it is almost impossible to balance myself on the foot pads and get my pants off at the same time. I step back down and take off my pants, then climb back up. Realizing that I forgot to remove my undies, I struggle for a bit to take them off, then I end up waking up.
    8. Beer / Heavy Metal (Fragments)

      DJ Log: October 31, 2015 – 8:00AM (USA Eastern)

      Fragment 1 I am looking for a beer in the fridge, but there is only some spilled liquid on the bottom of the fridge floor.

      Fragment 2 I am working on something in my shop and can hear that the neighbors across the street having a party. My brother and someone else is there with me. After a while, my neighbor turns on some really loud heavy metal music.

    9. Familiar Faces / A Perfect Hug (Fragment)

      by , 06-12-2015 at 02:15 PM (...from the dark corners of my mind...)
      DJ Log: June 12, 2015 – 8:00AM (USA Eastern)

      I am working on a video set with some familiar people. There is a rack of equipment in front of me to which I am connecting microphone cables to a large mixer. I look up to see a lady I work with regularly in audio/video production. I give her a thumbs-up and she returns one. I connect a few more cables, then I look up again to see who else I might know. I see this guy on video crew who I connected with in a previous dream which ended with a memorable hug. He is about my height and has dark medium length hair. He turns around and sees me and I watch his face change from 'serious business' to the most satisfied and lovely smile I have ever seen.

      He drops his clipboard and starts walking toward me. I drop my cables and start walking toward him. We meet in the middle of the set and wrap our arms around each other. As my face is buried in his wonderful smelling hair, I say softly, “I never want to let you go again.” He tightens his hold a bit and I can feel our hearts pounding against each other's in perfect timing. As we embrace, our feet leave the ground and we float just slightly off the ground, moving slowly about the set. After a while, I open my eyes slightly to see that we are floating around the corner into a grassy area. He says softly into my ear, “I'm certain that this is true love. I've never felt anything like this before.” I melt even further into his arms as I can feel our heartbeats speed up. I hold on tightly as the dream fades out and I wake up with a big smile on my face.

      I can't wait to meet him in real life. I often meet people in dreams before meeting in real life and this is more likely to happen when an energy or bond like this exists.

    10. Flying Around / Melting Through Glass (Fragment)

      by , 09-04-2014 at 06:08 AM (...from the dark corners of my mind...)
      DJ Log: June 22, 2014 – 5:45AM (USA Eastern)

      Yay! A quick flying lucid after a long dry spell.

      I am climbing a set of open mesh industrial metal stairs when I stop and look at the floor still moving away. This looks kind of strange, so I tell myself that I am dreaming and become lucid. A mild tingling sensation runs through my body and the lighting becomes much brighter in the room. I do a quick nose pinch to double-check before making a jump. I jump up and fly off the stairs and cruise around the room for a bit. I fly around for a little bit, then stop and try to remember the task of the month. I an unable to recall the tasks, so I fly as fast as I can into the window for a scene change. I hit the glass and slowly melt through it like ice cream melting and dripping through a strainer. Once through, I find myself in another room. Wanting to get outside, I turn around and fly into the wall and find that it offers much less resistance than the glass. The scene is outdoors without much detail. I attempt to stabilize for a bit, but I can feel my body laying in bed and the detail of the dream decaying quickly. Still lucid, I focus all of my energy on trying to spin. At first, I cannot move anything and I can feel myself transitioning out of the sleeping state as the dream darkens completely to black. I wake suddenly with a loud pop sound and my hand hits the headboard as I jump awake.

      (Note: I completely lost what happened in the beginning. At least I recalled the lucid part.)

      I am in the cellar of an old house and there are large chunks missing out of the concrete walls. There are huge spiders loving in the holes. The spiders had beaks on them like a bird. I watched one of the spiders come out of the hole and eat a stink bug.
    12. Wandering Around a Huge House (Fragment: broken audio)

      DJ Log: September 14, 2013 – 8:00AM (USA Eastern)

      I'm in a huge 3-story house. It looks like 2 or 3 separate houses which are connected by stairways and hallways. The kitchen area is huge and has a large attached sun room. The door to the sun room is nailed shut. I walk up onto the second floor and see large decks connected by stairways. A guy comes out of a room and invites me in to a party.

    13. Demo Software / Malfunctioning Camera (Fragment)

      by , 09-04-2014 at 06:03 AM (...from the dark corners of my mind...)
      DJ Log: September 1 , 2013 – 7:00AM (USA Eastern)

      I'm messing around with some kind of demo software on a server and I'm trying to remember exactly what it does. It seems like it runs some kind of data collection. The server is on a table and is all banged up. I remove the cover and see that one of the memory slots has some corrosion on it. I pull the memory card out and half of the card edge is missing. It looks like it just corroded away. I grab my camera and take a couple of pictures of the server internals. The camera is behaving strangely. The auto-focus is not working at all so I put it in manual. After failing at a couple of pictures, I give up.
    14. Office Building (Fragment: many inaudible parts in recording)

      DJ Log: August 4, 2013 – 7:30AM (USA Eastern)

      (Note: Do not use voice recorder while driving with windows open in a diesel truck with straight-pipe exhaust. lol)

      Walking with my boss and our controller, talking about the office building. We're walking down a hall between rows of cubicles and there is a whiteboard off to the side which has a high-rise building drawn on it. The floors were labeled and the whole 1st floor was mine. One of the other guys had a whole floor to himself too.

    15. Rifle Scope (Fragment)

      by , 09-04-2014 at 06:00 AM (...from the dark corners of my mind...)
      DJ Log: July 30, 2013 – 7:00AM (USA Eastern)

      I look out the window at what looks like a groundhog in the yard and I want to shoot it. I walk over and pick up my rifle and look through the scope. Looking closer, I can see that it's a cat, not a ground hog, so I decide not to shoot it. I look around through the yard for a bit through the scope and I see what looks like a dog hanging out by the barn. I look to the right a bit and see a bunch of people hangout out around my barn. I put the gun down and turn around to see that there are people walking around in my house. They are preparing the table for dinner. They move a few things off the table set plates down.
