Dream Log Entry 82

I went to a hockey game at the Pepsi Center. There were two ice rinks separated by nets and players could skate from one to the other. The Avalanche goaltender kept trying to score in the goal behind his own. The game ended and my stepmom asked me to buy a small whiteboard on my way home, I think she wanted to use it to keep track of mammography appointments. My parents and I went home in three separate cars. Our house was in Japan so my car turned into the Millennium Falcon so I could cross the Pacific Ocean. A giant Buddha statue was also crossing the Pacific but it exploded when it neared the Japanese shoreline. The dream became animated and the Japanese Emperor, who had African ancestry, was very sad about the destruction of the Buddha statue. The Emperor was heating tacos in the microwave when a masked assassin entered the room. The tacos got too hot and became the consistency of giant microwaved marshmallows and made a big mess on the floor. The animated part of the dream ended and the three of us were back home and I had forgotten to get a whiteboard. My bedroom was on one of the upper floors and I decided to sneak out of the window and onto the roof. I sang an Anberlin song as I was climbing down the roof and jumping off: Take what you want from me, it means nothing now. Take everything from me, it means nothing now. Not so easy to forgive, harder to forget, take what you want. I landed in wet grass and started crawling with my stomach close to the ground so nobody could see me. My dad came out of the house and asked me if I wanted to go to the grocery store with him. My stepmom told me to “get the breast cancer test with the cup” instead of the whiteboard. There was also something about my mom working at a movie theater in Hollywood with hundreds of screens.

I was walking around Paris with Teena and we met her fiancé in an underground restaurant with a glass roof. The three of us ate together and I kept quiet during their conversation. They picked an ‘80s power ballad to sing to each other at the wedding. They also decided to circumcise any and all of their future sons.


Dream Log Entry 41

My mom, Jane, Hannah, and I were sitting on the floor of a hallway in a strange hospital. My mom said this was the last time that I would ever see my youngest and most distant cousin who was singing “Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)” next to his brother and mother as I was being dragged away. Then, as I was carrying Hannah on my shoulders, Marie walked by. We were looking for my mom’s white Prius in the parking lot but there were multiple ones so we had to wait until some of the other cars left and we spotted it on one of the underground levels. The staff made us call a garbage company and wait in the dirt on the far end of the property as they removed a giant ladder. The wind was blowing sand in everyone’s ears and I started singing the bassline to “Miss Murder” to pass the time. The staff explained that this parking garage had been featured in a really bad movie called Sam Cooper. Instead of going back to the car with the others I found a talking cat and explored the empty garage which we found to be seven stories (or eight including the glass panel roof) but there was a creepy old man walking around on the outside of the roof so I ducked down on the ground.

Dream Log Entry 40

Fall Out Boy performed “This Ain’t a Scene, It’s an Arms Race” at Wilbur’s Total Beverage and they did it without breaking any wine bottles. Then I went to English class with Gabe. Then Shi and Scott went to the Coheed and Cambria concert separate from me and the girl from Sheep Death because we were singing “A Favor House Atlantic” on giant steps made of cardboard that were about to be recycled and I almost lost the tickets.
