The most clever thing I’ve seen lately!
Weapon of Mass Instruction
Built from a welded frame atop a 1979 Ford Falcon, Raul Lemesoff drives around the streets of Buenos Aires distributing free books to anybody who wants to be assaulted with some serious learnin’.
I don’t remember that many specifics, but my dream last night involved hanging out with Stephen Von Til. It was odd and random. He had a bad temper, and was perturbed about something the entire time. Then he got drunk, and left where we were because he couldn’t sleep. I got the impression that he suffered from insomnia often, at least in the context of the dream. Then suddenly it was morning and the roads were covered with ice and snow, and I was driving somewhere.
It’s kind of ironic because I just read that Von Til just arrived back to his home town from Chicago where the mixing of the new Neurosis record had been completed. Maybe my subconscious wanted to remind me that I was excited about hearing the new Neurosis? At any rate I don’t feel as if Stephen Von Til has a bad temper or is ill mannered, and that is something that I am in no way implying. Actually the first time I saw Neurosis live, at the Relapse Contamination fest 03, he was hanging out in the bar watching the after show, and by all accounts seems to be a laid back and an all around good dude.
Okay so it’s incredibly apparent what a lazy bastard I am on the back of the last blog post I did. Really it is a combination of having loads of particularly mundane dreams, as well as the realization of the commitment that is getting up and documenting those dreams first thing. It has to be the first thing that I would always do upon waking for accuracy’s sake. That’s pretty much tantamount to starting a raw diet in terms of commitment, at least for myself. So anyways, this blog will be a spotty go, inconsistent at best, and nobody will be let down because of it.
This is just a declaration that I am planning to repurpose this blog to chronicle my dreams. That would be far more interesting than reposting random bits that I find on the Internet, and there is Reddit for that. I’ve always heard of the phenomenon that if you document your dreams you remember them more. I don’t think that I’m any more unique than anyone else in terms of having bizarre dreams. I have very bizarre dreams though, and quite often. A lot of the time they don’t make sense, and worst of all they often make me experience things that are impossible for me to experience in my waking life; these are generally things that have very real emotions associated with them. In this way, feelings from the past are reanimated whereas I prefer them dormant.
I look forward to doing this project, and to see what comes of it. It’s more for me than anything else. Nobody is reading anyways.
