      Enooooooormous lot of dreams last night. There was one about being chased by a Terminator-like entity which was shooting at me with a minigun and I decided I needed to get out of town.

      The main one was me being in space. Except 'space' was a giant room that slowly gradient-ed into being darker and darker, until the walls and floor disappeared and turned into empty space.
      I walked out onto it (there was apparently an invisible floor) and was scared but excited, knowing that at any moment I could lose the ability to breathe and could freeze. I actually reckoned that the air and temperature from the rest of the room was probably seeping a little way out and making it possible to breathe a bit.

      While out in the space-ness, I came across a tiny (golf ball sized) version of Mars and its two moons floating around. I began playing with the little planet and pushing it around, changing its orbit, moving the moons, and sending it across the vastness.
      Eventually I looked up and saw that in front of me, the blackness had become a thin band and was being replaced by exactly what was behind me. I decided that it was space-time bending around itself and being all wormholeish.

      TLDR; I basically played God for a while and was surprisingly sensible about the whole thing. It was awesome.

      It's been too long...

      What I remember was that I was in a profoundly awesome city. It was like a city from the Imperium in Warhammer or something like that; giant Cathedral-like buildings and statues of Angels.

      I was just walking through the city with my Dad and brother when they veered off and left me to explore by myself. I kinda just walked around being amazed at the scale and size of the buildings and statues around me. It was pretty intense.

      Man, I've been out of contact for a while. This is just a little entry despite the fact that I had approximately 1 billion dreams last night.

      I was in an amazing Japanese city where every building was the same style. They were completely made of glass, with some panels of frosted glass creating a stylized design. It was as if the city had been completely built by one company (probably Apple, judging by how it looked and the fact that there was an Apple store there) from scratch.
      The buildings were all sleek and curved at the front and the streets were completely empty. I was just jumping around talking about how it was the coolest place ever. EVER.

      Then I went to a shop and bought some squid which was rotten.
      Then I went on a trip to some scary drug dealers house.
      Then I was at Nooks' house and some bad guys kidnapped us and killed us.
      Then we were going on a trek but there was mud and water everywhere.
      Then there were helicopters.

      It was crazy.
    4. The Meth Lab Mayhem...

      Monday 16th of July, 2012

      I was making meth (I've been watching a lot of Breaking Bad and lately heaps of my dreams are about meth!) and the cops caught on to it. I went to a hardware store to get supplies and realised they were following me. I surrendered and they hauled me off to a library, where I had an argument over the fact that my library card had expired. While arguing, I overheard that the police were going to burn our house down to try and kill Nooks and Acka, and make it look like an accident, so I ran off and texted her before they caught me. As I was texting, in some other realm I was also writing my will; evidently I knew this was the end.

      Somehow I got back home where I discovered the house had been bugged. I decided it was best to just leave and went outside and began riding a Vesper.
      It gets a bit hazy there but I honed back in on me sweeping the road, where I stumbled upon an awesome part of town that was a single, fenced off street that had all these tiny, hawker style food carts except they were bars. It was like a market street for partying.


      I got a lift to work from Dad but had to catch a bus halfway there. For some reason I had a cat with me. At work I realised I'd forgotten my uniform and that I should have my car otherwise how would I get home? The cat began acting like a child and eventually became one. With a mohawk. Acka brought my uniform and I started work. Shortly after that I put a wet ball of paper on my face.
    5. The Truck Crush...

      Wednesday 18th of July, 2012

      I was walking in a park kind of area but with several buildings in it. Kind of like Central Park in NY, I suppose. As I walked I came across a little girl rummaging through a bin. She must've been about 6 and she's just humming to herself and digging through garbage. Every now and then she put something she found into a paper bag.
      I watched her for a little bit, feeling sad for her, and then her mum came along. I began berating her asking how she could let her daughter do that, then I noticed she herself was really grimy and she explained that they were homeless.

      Somehow things evolved really quickly and I found myself crying and chasing the mum because of some kind of elaborate love story about how the young girl created some kind of bond. Except it wasn't to do with me. All I was thinking while it was happening was "Man! This would be a good movie"


      I was with a group of friends including my youngest brother and we were sitting in a cul-de-sac talking to the driver of a semi-trailer. Suddenly someone had a guitar and we were all singing Losing My Religion by REM, except everyone was struggling to keep time properly. I remarked that no one had ever realised that it was the hardest song to sing along to ever.
      When we finished the driver, who had been sitting in the cab and leaning out the window, was just like "Thanks!" and began to pull away. As he did the rear of the truck came really close to us and I looked down to notice that my brother was under the truck and about to be squashed by the wheels. I screamed out and raised my hand to reach out to him and as I did so, jolted awake in real life.

      Thinking back on it...was the choice of 'REM' a hint that I was dreaming?

      I've had a pretty hectic few days of dreaming; one involved going to Heaven and another slamming a person's head against a heater to get my $800 back.
      I could update my DJ but I'd rather just give a brief overview and let people know I'm still alive and kicking. And having really intense dreams apparently...

      There were multiple dimensions that we were trying to unite by combining rocks in a cave.


      I crashed two seperate cars, one effing me up really badly. There were cool parts to the dream about why I was speeding but I forget them.


      A massive fleet of giant glowing balls began to emerge from underground around the country. It turned out they were alien ships that began dropping off zombie-like aliens to take over. I had to locate the nest things that each one emerged from an push a button to shut them down. Acka and I stole several cars to race around and try to stop as many as we could, because everyone else had given up hope. In an old Porsche, we found evidence that the zombie aliens were actually humans that had been transformed by some kind of syrup product. There was a weird scene were I was talking to the owner of the syrup company on this '70's version of futuristic' television machine.
    8. The Cove Cave with Cage...

      dream : comments : lucid
      22nd of June, 2012

      I discovered with Nooks a hidden cove beside I mountain that, when you went down into the water, had a sweet shallow-water cave leading off it. We swam into the cave and, when we emerged from the water, were suddenly involved in a film shoot involving Nicholas Cage. I had this cool DSLR video camera to film with and was looking through all the footage on it which showed all these amazingly shot, elegant, beautifully colored scenic scenes of waterfalls and rainbows. So for a little while I was the cameraman on this film which had basically no story line but involved Nick Cage in houses and other random places..

      Somehow that faded and I was driving in a car with my Nana on a dirt road above the cove from before. Suddenly she swerved and the car fell into the water but became a jet-ski which we rode into the cave again. On entering, we began placing mine-cart tracks and riding along the rails while digging out the walls all Minecraft style. The cave slowly filled up with people also mining away and then Professor Snape began to make these two Barbie-type dolls have sex. I told him he was being childish and that he should be more professional.


      Ahh man! There was another awesome one this morning which I forget now. I'll update this later if I remember. Watch this space!

      Edit:I remembered!!

      Okay, so I was floating/swimming in this large harbour area "eating" boats and harbourside buildings. Eating basically involved me reaching out toward the object and trying to touch it which would make it slowly start disintegrating from where I touched. Even though things looked far away, I could reach them all- almost like we were missing a 3rd dimension or something. Anyway, I ate a couple of Cruise Ships and some buildings and a sea plane and then I got full from eating too many things. (lol, just writing this is making me weirded out!)
      So I climbed aboard an Aircraft Carrier where I helped land some more sea planes, and then went into the cafe, which teleported me to a similar cafe in a small town. There I ordered a spring roll which I was told would take about 2 minutes to cook, so in the mean time I went and had a small party in the dining area. Now that I think about it, I think it was some kind of Uni lodging or something.

      It was strange.

      21st of June, 2012

      My recall's been really bad lately, for some reason. This is a tiny almost lucid I had this morning.

      I was with Nooks and some other people in a forested hill area. It was winter and the trees had mostly lost their leaves. I realised that there was a UFO following the people, who began to run away together. I said to Nooks that it would make much more sense if they split up; that way it couldn't follow them both... but it'd be gay as Hell to be the one that it DID follow.

      Somehow it came to pass that Nooks and I were the ones that were being followed so we began running through the trees trying to avoid this thing and its spotlight. It was really quite horrifying. We ran for a while trying to lose it and find cover before coming across a river with huge frozen walls.

      Like that, but without the glacier on top-just more hill.

      Anyway, we tried to hide in the crevices and hoped that the cold water would lower our body temperatures so they couldn't detect us. Nooks started singing at that point though, so I put my hand over her mouth to shut her up. Too late.

      Aliens began to abseil out of this thing (it was basically a helicopter, apparently) so we bolted while we had the chance, swimming as hard as we could to reach the bank. We ran like that for some time and eventually found ourselves near people in a large...complex of some sort. Kind of like a school/outdoor shopping mall. I looked back to see the 'alien' (read: random dude) chasing us at like 50km/h so we stepped up the pace and were running absurdly quickly. At that point we were on an indoor oval and began jumping really far to try and escape. I turned to Nooks and said "Don't worry Nooks, this is obviously just a dream now!" and kept jumping, wondering what to do next.

      I'd been asleep for a while though so as soon as I realised I was dreaming I woke up.
      Should've stabilised or something. Ah well, still appears my dream recognition is improving.

      Another mostly forgotten night. I woke up at one point and was super tempted to write down one of them, but it was so awesome I was sure I'd remember. Didn't!

      Something about Nooks being kidnapped so I lifted up the car she was being taken away in and put it on top of a van to stop it driving away. Probably should've realised that wasn't humanly possible.
      Then I was driving a car which turned into a really tall unicycle which I rode into a video store. I was looking around for movies but all I could see were the porn DVD's coz they were on the top shelves where my super-tall line of sight was.

      Just a couple o' fragments from last night:

      I ended up in an empty cinema somehow and me and my friends started playing Xbox on the screen, which was awesome except I couldn't get the games to work properly. The one I do remember was some Loony-Toons-esque game where you rode on an asteroid and had to do...something.


      I was at a party at a farmhouse of some sort and went after my brother, who had run to the fence to check if it was, as he suspected, the border of Mexico (it was!)
      While going after him, I felt a stinging sensation on my back and realised there was a bug biting me under my shirt. I ripped my shirt off and swatted at it, making it fly away. However, as I put my shirt back on, it flew back and down the front where I started biting me again. These were really painful bites, as well- like I was being stabbed. Each time it happened, I ripped it off my skin but it kept coming back. Eventually I was lying on the ground writhing in agony as this thing kept biting into me. Finally I just tore my shirt off my body and made my way back to the house. I could feel blood trickling down my back and front and, when I got inside, saw in a mirror that I was covered in blood. It was pretty yuck.

    12. The Important Seeming One...

      dream : comments : lucid
      I don't really remember anything from last night, so let's go back through the archives and post one of the most standout dreams I've ever had which was lost when that hacking incident occurred. This is a slightly smaller version of the original post due to me forgetting a lot of it during the interim.

      It has a really vivid series of characters, most of whom I know from real life but only in vague sort of ways.

      Shit gets a bit full-on at the end and I'd love to hear anyone's thoughts on it:

      10th of February, 2012

      It was mine and Nooks' wedding day but I'd forgotten to organise a suit or even groomsmen.

      Eventually that fact changed and the wedding was to be tomorrow instead, so it all worked out. To celebrate this new fact, I went to a casino-type place and ate oysters covered in absinthe and vodka (*shudders*)
      After a fair bit of rowdiness and haziness, I awoke in bed with Danni (a random girl who sold Nooks her car) but it was a purely platonic thing; I was just sleepin'.

      Danni told me that her wedding to Arin (her boyfriend at the time) had been particularly average at best, and that he'd most recently just gotten her porn for her birthday. She was pretty upset and we talked for a while with her warning me to do my best or some such thing.

      At one point I must've left because I next found myself coming home, where I discovered a bunch of people (Danni included) moving our bins out onto the kerb for collection. They were bringing them out of a strange little indoor glasshouse/bike shed so I went to help them and casually mentioned that today was my wedding day.
      To clear my head I went for a stroll/ride down the street where I bumped into Seon's dad, who was apparently a doctor. He looked at me then ran into the street and began yelling out this amazingly lovely speech about me- things like "His eyes are truly open!" and semi-profound dream statements like that.

      During his little moment, Arin came up and was talking to him and crying. We asked him what was up and he said that he and Danni had broken up but that it was okay because she was beautiful and wonderful, but not the girl he really loved.

      After that he went off and began working at a corner-store which I followed him to and ordered a spring roll. He got one from a bookshelf and gave it to me and I thought it was only half cooked coz it was all soggy on one side. Turns out it was actually half cheese, half spring roll. D'uh.

      I realised I'd left my phone and wallet on a table outside at that moment, so I went out to collect it and eat my gross lunch. From the doorway, I noticed Tabitha taking my money and gleefully counting it. I accused her of stealing but she refused to give it back so I started getting physically violent with her. I decided that the best course of action was to have a People's Court and asked those around what they'd seen. Somehow they sided with her so I grabbed her by the throat and threw her inside the store, warning her that "I reckon at least one prostitute is killed by a man every day... It's a bad day to be a prostitute." Then I laughed coz it was a bit of a stupid insult.

      Somehow she became a deputy of some kind that I reported to a Sheriff who was having a cup of coffee nearby. As I was doing that, I noticed a TV playing in the background which I entered the vision of:

      It was a woman sitting on a deck in a rocking chair, slowly cutting up a baby in this profoundly, excruciatingly, extremely graphic nature; just sort of peeling it and getting covered in blood. The baby was just sitting there staring straight at me and blinking every now and then. Not making a sound as she slowly cut off it's arms and feet. It was mortifying but I couldn't look away.
      After a while of watching this I began to vomit grey goo over the railing and then I woke up, disturbed yet intrigued by the contents of such a dream.
    13. The Semi-Lucid Chili Journey...

      dream : comments : lucid
      13th of June, 2012

      There were several smaller dreams last night but I'll just stick with the main one:

      Nooks, Acka, my parents and I were visiting the US. The dream became really clear when I was standing out the front of this house looking over the city at sunset. It looked kind of like San Francisco but more... European. It was really pretty with lots of ornate houses huddled together on hils. I tried to take a picture of the scene on my phone coz it was such a nice view but it wouldn't change from the reverse camera so all I could see was my stupid-ass dream face doing that goofy smile it always does.
      Anyway. The sun set really quickly after that and then I went back inside and realised after seeing a sign that we were in fact in Ohio and I should go get some Skyline Chili (which is this franchise that only exists in Ohio and I didn't really care for that much when I had it last time I was in the States anyway...)

      But find it we must! So Acka and I went on an adventure to find a store which involved walking through schoolyards and this zanily large shopping centre. After being lost in there for what seemed like an eternity, we took an escalator up to a movie theatre lobby. Walking through there my legs suddenly stopped working properly and I told Acka not to worry coz "This happens pretty regularly, but only in dreams..."

      I almost missed what I'd just said, but something stirred inside me and it suddenly hit me;
      I was dreaming!
      I played it cool as a cucumber and told Acka to hang on while I did this Reflex Dream Stabilisation I read about yesterday that involved clenching certain muscles to ground you. It definitely worked as the dream became way clearer and more stable but with two drawbacks:
      1. It made my legs work even less well somehow;
      2. It put me too deeply in the dream and I kinda lost my consciousness a bit

      So I did a little Lieutenant Dan style stupid-walk over to an escalator and basically fell down it.
      That crap continued for a while until I think I woke up. BUT! It's a DILD, so that's what's important.
    14. The Blistering Skin, the Suave Douchebag and a Nuclear Emergency...

      dream : comments : lucid
      12th of June, 2012

      The first thing I recall (though I know there was more beforehand) is floating on a wooden plank in an underground river opening heaps of tubs of margarine to find treasure. Carrying on down stream eventually lead me to my friend R's car (which is an awesome BMW) so Nooks, R, Acka and myself all decided to get in and go driving. While tearing down the road we realised we were being tailgated by some dude on a motorbike without his headlights on so we tried to lose him but he did a wheelie and kept following us. It got a bit anxious-feeling and at one point R mentioned having machine guns in the headlights that he could use if need be. After a lot of driving we ended up in a storm-water drain/skate park place and were doing backflips in the car to get away from this guy who was now on a push bike instead.

      Finally we stopped and got out and I tried to jump up onto a ledge with Nooks but couldn't pull myself up. At that moment the bike guy approached me and started being all... suave yet scary.

      This guy was awesome. He was handsome, sophisticated and eloquent with a strange darkness about him. I told him I was wary of him and all of a sudden Nooks just started kissing him.
      I lost my shit and started freakin' out but Nooks didn't see what the problem was, saying that he was way cooler than me anyway. She kissed him a couple more times and then I totally flipped and started pushing them both around and throwing them against walls and stuff. It got a bit hairy and thankfully I woke up, in an intense sweat.

      The dream was cool though, so I tried to re-enter it and shortly found myself back in R's car angrily driving to a beach to vent my frustration. When we got there, we started applying sunscreen and then I realised that the whole scene was a terrifying deep red colour and when I looked at myself I discovered I was getting really sunburnt. Someone said "The sun's broken; it's exploding soon" or something like that and I looked up to see an enormous red fireball in the sky. I looked around in panic and we were all starting to blister and peel and I think trees were starting to smoke.

      Suddenly I found myself in a large, scholarly hall of some description with Nooks and a couple of random DC's. A guy entered with some playing cards and seemed relieved to be holding the 4 of diamonds as opposed to another card, saying "Thank god, this is the good place. The others went to the bad one." which I took to mean we were in heaven.

      At some point during the proceedings I looked down to discover that I had this horrific, pus-filled, scabby horrendous shingles-like thing going down both my sides. Eugh. Just thinking about that makes me queasy. Heaven my balls.


      I was in an underground lair of some kind and fell down a large drain with Jono. We could hear an alarm going off and when we finally struggled back to the top I discovered I worked at a Nuclear Fusion lab and it was about to go into meltdown and explode. There were screams coming from outside the whole time as people began to find out what was happening. I managed to fix the problem by turning off the power-point and turning it back on then went outside and released some helium balloons as a victory sign.

      Pretty nightmarish kind of night, actually.

    15. The Train Wreck...

      by , 06-04-2012 at 09:42 PM (My brain and I)
      dream : comments : lucid
      5th of June, 2012

      Me and a whole group of my friends were walking somewhere. We came to a set of traffic lights crossing a train track and waited. Once we crossed we ended up at the front door of my friend's house which was literally 1/2 a metre away from the track. I commented that it was weird that they put a traffic light for the road when it would be just as dangerous for him to be unlocking his door and he should get one as well.

      We went into his house and when I looked out the window I noticed that he had a couple of heaters on the track, which was basically his front yard. I was all "Won't that be dangerous for a train?" but he said that he'd never had a problem before.

      At that moment a train came around the corner and slowly started crashing through the heaters. At first it looked as though it was going to make it but then one wheel came loose and the whole train slowly, epically derailed in front of us and flipped over. I burst into action, scared that the back end of the train had hit Nooks who was standing around the corner of the house. Luckily I didn't see her anywhere so I jumped on board making sure no one was hurt, which they weren't due to seatbelts. Just then the front carriage kept driving away which I thought was both rude and pretty slack of the driver to do.

      There was also something about a live performance of Little Shop of Horrors in there somewhere...

      It's pretty obvious I'd been thinking about this month's TotM with the train, but I didn't pick up on it. Better start working on my awareness more!
