    Type 1a: Dreams in Space

    I'm finally really getting serious about this again. After missing a couple days in my physical DJ, I figured if I'm really serious about this, then starting one online would be a good way to motivate myself. So here it is. A detailed inventory of little glimpses into whatever my subconscious happens to be doing at the time. Hope it's not doing anything private...

    1. Fragments (Sep 24 2011)

      by , 09-24-2011 at 03:06 PM (Type 1a: Dreams in Space)
      I remember being in the car with several friends. We were just driving down a road that led away from our area (a sort of dream that i get from time to time). Eventually, I had to reply to a text from my dad, but something about the area we had just entered caused my phone to automatically switch to spanish (i.e. everything I typed automatically changed to Spanish, as well as all the UI) o_0. We were parked at a spot which resembles closely a spot in my actual town (which we pointed out in the dream), and I told them what happened with my phone, and said we needed to get back so i could reply to that text. A different friend drove back, and said he knew some back roads (sort of a scenic route).

      Later on, I remember looking in a mirror, and I had tattoos . I almost caught that one, I thought something about how there must have been some circumstance where I didn't really have the tattoos, but It didn't quite click that that meant i was dreaming and should RC.

      Most of what I recall pertains to a long dream involving me being on a vacation in North Carolina (I just returned from there a week ago).

      First thing I remember was before, I was in some sort of video game scenario, fighting a boss of some sort. After I killed him, I had to go around and collect a bunch of...something, from the area.

      Later, I was in a shopping mall, and I had some sort of superhuman abilities (mostly movement). The mall was being attacked (or something), one of the "bad guys" had placed a bomb in one of the stores. I was working with a couple other people, and we did something to screw up their plot.

      Later, it was back to the vacation theme. We were going down a highway approaching a bridge (on the left side wtf), and we were worried that they were going to close the bridge for some reason before we could get to it.

      Last, we were at some place with a bunch of houses/condos, and in front of them, rather than a beach, was a park-like area. I did a bunch of different things here. Last I remember, I came out of our house, and a bunch of people were hanging around there, and someone was playing Skrillex. Further from the houses in a lower area, a group of college-age guys had built some sort of giant ice luge which ended at a hot tub. It was leaking into the hot tub, which pissed some guy off. We all started craking up at the whole scene, and I went to take a picture.

    3. Age of Empires

      by , 08-29-2011 at 02:55 PM (Type 1a: Dreams in Space)
      I just remembered a short bit from a dream. I started a new game of Age of Empires, but instead of the normal game mode, it was something different. I started with no Town Center, 2 castles, 7 or 8 villagers, and a couple military units. I started making some units at a castle (war elephants I think), but I got distracted from the game for a moment. When I came back, the computer player was sending a bunch of troops and siege weapons, and overran me. I started a new game, and this time I started out with a bunch more military units. I was dealing with so much at once that I didn't get my villagers working right away, but I was still getting resources from something (I forget what). The computer arrived with a small army, and I sent out my troops but he killed most of them. What happened beyond that is foggy at best, but I believe it went into a totally different scenario/different dream.

    4. Tripping with R in the woods

      by , 08-22-2011 at 02:47 PM (Type 1a: Dreams in Space)
      I only remember one dream last night, but it was pretty vivid, possibly due to REM rebound from drinking.

      First thing I remember, I was with R on a back road just within a forest. We had both eaten some shrooms and were already tripping. Upon waking up I immediately reflected on how much the feeling of it was like actually tripping. The mental state wasn't quite the same, but the physical feeling was;and that's a feeling I can't quite recall while awake. We were supposed to be near the gathering point for some sort of "festival". After sitting there a bit, I started to feel a little uncomfortable. I got up and started walking down a few streets, and was feeling fairly anxious. Shortly I came up to a building that was like that "psychedelic crisis tent" that someone set up at Burning Man (probably where this idea came from). I was pretty anxious at this point, but I didn't want to go in, thinking for some reason that I didn't want to give them my name. I thought of giving them a fake name, but quickly rejected the idea and started to walk away. As I left I quickly started feeling better, for some reason. I walked downhill, then made a 180 to the left and back up to where my friend was. While walking down the hill, something put on my mind the idea that most people don't drink enough water, and came up with some sort of guideline to avoid getting dehydrated. Now I wanted to get back to my friend because my water bottle was back there. As I arrived back my friend was just getting up from where he had been lying. We continued walking up the hill, towards where some people were entering the woods. I asked him "So, is this like, a hippie festival, or something?" I remember wanting to run into someone else who was tripping. We entered the woods and I asked what sort of festival it was. He said "Well, what do we always do?" and made a hand motion like smoking a joint. There were a few people to our right, and a steep hill to our left with more people at the bottom. The people to our right were playing "Candyman" by the Grateful Dead. It sounded amazing, and I think I sang along briefly. Next they played some Led Zeppelin song. My friend and I made our way down the hill, and to our left was this spot where there was a sort of division between the woods and a totally different area, in a desert and darker as if it were dusk, with a door connecting the two. There were two lines of people in the desert area, and me and my friend went over there. That's about the last I remember, and the dream ended just after that.

      I remember something about being in some sort of department store, possibly as an employee.

      I definitely recall having played The Beatles' "Rocky Raccoon" on guitar at some point, though I'm not sure of the circumstances.

    6. (recall dip)

      by , 08-18-2011 at 04:25 PM (Type 1a: Dreams in Space)
      I seem to have disappeared the last few days, huh?

      My sleep schedule's been F-ed the last 3 days (especially last night), so I've had little fragments but then fell back asleep and forgot them. Even though I'll be on vacation the next week I'll be trying to get sleep at reasonable hours so as not to bring my recall back to square 1.

    7. (very dark) Fragments (Aug 14 2011)

      by , 08-14-2011 at 03:52 PM (Type 1a: Dreams in Space)
      Had a very creepy dream last night.
      I don't remember exactly how we got into the situation we were in, but from where I remember: me and a few of my friends were in a situation where 3 people had been killed (we had nothing to do with that), but due to the circumstances we were afraid that if we told anyone we would be blamed, so we put the bodies in a car and drove out to a remote point between a river and some woods . We were trying to figure out how to hide the bodies, understandably freaking out a bit. Finally we decided to go up a hill and bury them by the edge of the woods. Don't remember any ore of that.

      There was another dream later that had something to do with being in a store. Don't remember much at all of that, but the part of the store that I was walking towards looked, from where I was, sort of like the inside of a store that I had been in another dream a while back.
    8. D's hunting trip

      by , 08-13-2011 at 02:11 PM (Type 1a: Dreams in Space)
      Fairly short dream, but more than a fragment.

      I was standing in the backyard of D's house, but it looked a little more like mine. We were talking, and he told me that he had a family hunting trip coming up soon (like they were going to go camping and hunt from there, or something). He said that he was dreading having to go, because he didn't like hunting. I remember saying something about he just had to learn to get over being bothered by it (not like me). by the side of the house next to the fence there was, appropriately, some dead small animal, and these really big bugs were buzzing around it. One in particular made a really loud strange buzzing noise. This bothered me because I had no clue what they were, so I walked towards the back of the house, and D followed. I said that I thought that hunting would be better if you used a bow instead of a gun (referring to the simple medieval-style bow, not the high-tech ones they have today). After that I remember we saw one of his cats (a black cat, though neither of his are black) lying on the small fishing boat (flipped over, aluminum flat-bottom, which would have been in my backyard); I went over to pet it, and I noticed a sprinkler was running behind the boat. That's the last I remember.

    9. Fragments (Aug 12 2011)

      During the day I recalled being in a fight with someone, I remember him being on a slightly raised platform, and I had him by the arm and flipped him over my shoulder.
      I also remember something about school, more specifically being there.

    10. Air combat over freeway

      by , 08-11-2011 at 02:45 PM (Type 1a: Dreams in Space)
      I remember this dream well, but no fragments. Clarity was average.

      From where I remember, I was flying above a freeway in a small military aircraft (couldn't really determine at this point if it was a helicopter or a fighter), With some low clouds below us. There was a hostile fighter flying alongside us and I was taking potshots at it with a a handgun, through a small window on either side that slid open. When that ran out, I opened a small hatch in the floor and sat down in a lowered area to man a nose-mounted minigun (It was definitely a helicopter at this point). We flew very low, following the freeway. At this point another helicopter was after us, so I did my best to keep him off us with the minigun. After a while, when things looked clear for a moment, there was up ahead of us one of those metal frame things that go across the freeway to hold signs. There was an explosion past it, and the other helicopter was now flying over the highway coming towards us. He was pulling up to go over the signs, so my pilot told me to hang on and went UNDER the sign. Just down the road were two trucks, one small and one bigger, loaded with machine guns. I strafed them with the minigun, and we continued ahead. As we continued the area became more and more heavily forested, and after a moment we had arrived at a clearing in the woods where we landed and met up with some ground troops. I don't really remember anything after this point.
