I don't know, my friend . . . I bet if Mike Tyson found himself in the square circle with this fellow he'd be on the phone right quick to George Foreman looking for a job hawking grillers and panini presses!

I've been pretty sick lately. [.....]

But recently, my fever-dream was about these unkillable (like in G-Mod) giant "5 de febrero" signs in a fuzzy distortion font and also unkillable groundhog images. They were glowing in the darkness, chasing me. "They don't stop coming, and they don't stop coming" (from Smashmouth 'Rock Star') was playing in the background, probably. But I was in a large dimly lit TRON-type landscape, running and trying to dodge these unkillables. All the while, I was annoyed as shit that whoever made this "game" apparently didn't know that Groundhog Day is February 2nd, not February 5th. ¡¡¡AY yay yay!!!

Singular. Maniacal. Inescapable. Wrong Dates.

It's been a month ... I hope youre feeling better, and am glad that at the very least you got a dream you could share.

Fever dreams that I remember have been very pleasant, such that once, a few years ago, I couldnt even see the screen but I managed to get on my computer and type out the dream I'd had in Notepad and then upload it later so I could preserve it for my own memory.

I dont have a computer by my bed anymore, so lately I havent been writing down my dreams. I used to have quite a dream diary going, and a couple of months ago I even had 12 distinct dreams in 6 days. This morning I had a dream that I could hover in the air by curling up into a fetal pose and then spinning slowly just above the ground. Apparently, quite a lot of peopel could do this ... perhaps 5% of the population, but most people didnt even know about it because it was a useless superpower ... i couldnt fly, just hover, and couldnt move while I was doing it. Even so, the people around me were interested to see me spinning because they weren't aware it was even possible.
Sorry guys, this one has the worst sting.

I was hanging out at a fastfood restaurant (either a Hardee's or a Wendy's. I don't remember which.) Everything was normal until Batman entered and approached the counter. He was ordering something off the menu, and I wanted his autograph, but I end up deciding not to ask him. I look out the window to see the Batmobile parked and Robin is sitting in the front passenger's side and jamming to some music. Then, I see some thugs approach the Batmobile and try to break into it to steal it. Batman notices and rushes out to the parking lot, with the them song playing from the T.V. show that Adam West starred in. He and Robin start being up the thugs with the sound effect baloon things that show everytime they hit someone like in the old show.

I dreamt that I played a game very similar to Sim City 3000 – what differed was that I could add extras (central heating for a few Simoleons, for example) to the buildings, which would improve the quality of life for my Sims.
Should I go to EA with this dream-derived idea?

"Rock Star"? I believe you mean "All Star".

I've never had the famous "teeth falling out" dream that a lot of people experience, but last night I had a dream where sand and small pebbles kept appearing in my mouth [O.O] And I kept spitting them out, but they kept forming. That was weird...and gross. Not sure what corner of my subconscious that came from...

Maybe you were inspired by Ronald Weasley?

I dreamt that my wife was working in a kindergarden while we were on vacations. She said she was bored.

I dreamt that I watched a cartoon video someone had made of the Inner Bruise story. It was somewhat similar in style to Rocky and Bullwinkle. At first all I saw were White characters. It seemed every character looked White, with either blonde or brown hair, even the kids who were Asian, Hispanic, Middle Eastern, etc. It was hard to tell who was who, just by the physical descriptions and dress. Finally I saw two African-American boys (Jeff and Kevin?), saying stereotypically "Black" things. Then I woke up.

I dreamed that I was desperately looking for...

glittery makeup. Specifically lipstick and eyeliner. But nothing was properly glittery enough.

Then the next night I was parkouring around an abandoned school(?) that looked kind of dingy. There were some kind of monsters I was trying to avoid, but then I found a part of the school that was still in use and they were offering bus rides to the sun.

I dreamt of the name 'hrombula' (maybe also 'hrombulus'). I have never heard it before. It seems to be Czech.

So I've been listening to a lot of podcasts lately, and for the first time last night I had a podcast dream. The podcast was hosted by two women, and they were having a photojournalist on to talk about a new photo essay he'd released. As the photojournalist told his story in the podcast, which I heard as if wearing headphones, I experienced the story from his point of view.

The photojournalist talked about his project, and I saw the photographs. Each was a view down a hallway on each floor of a hotel. In one, a person leaned against the wall looking at their phone. In another, a man about halfway down the hall looked directly at the camera.

The journalist started describing the process of taking the pictures, and I/he was at the hotel, which was castle-like with ivy-draped red brick and patinaed copper roofs. There was a separate elevator tower in the same style connected to the main building by a bridge at the top floor. The journalist said he knew this would be the perfect way to take his pictures. He would ride the elevator up one floor at a time and get out to take a picture down the hallway to his right. I got on the elevator at the ground floor and went to the second floor (first floor for any Brits). I went out into the hall and raised the camera to take a picture. A man about halfway down the hall noticed, and motioned that he would get out of the way, but I motioned that he could stay and snapped the picture. It turned out to be the second photo from earlier, with the man looking directly at the camera. I got back in the elevator and pressed the "Up" button. The next floor up, I again took a picture; this time it was the first photo I'd seen.

When I got back in the elevator, I went to press the "Up" button, but instead I accidentally pressed a button labeled "Ahead". The elevator went completely dark, and I heard machinery working outside it. I felt the elevator car start to move forward as if on an overhead track. On the podcast, the photojournalist said, "Of course, I didn't know it was a rollercoaster." A moment later, the elevator car plunged down a steep slope and then entered a sharp curve. When the elevator eventually came to a rest, I inferred from the sounds I heard that it was on a moving train transporting livestock. I woke up.



Meta-time! That was one of the most narratively cohesive dreams I've had in a long time, but a couple things didn't make sense, even accepting the internal logic of an elevator car that becomes a rollercoaster. If I've described everything understandably, you'll notice that the design of the elevator tower shouldn't have allowed me to get off on each floor; it was separate from the main building with the only connection being at the top floor.

Based on their voices, I can't quite identify the hosts. But I'm pretty sure the photojournalist had the voice of an NPR reporter named Sam Sanders. He has a podcast I listen to regularly.

The elevator thing was the first I noticed. I actually had to read this sentence a few times to be able to parse it.
But what if the tower was actually connected to the building at every level, except the last floor, where there was space for a bridge. because of the angle of the building's roof? Something like this:

I thought about that, but I don't think so. The tower was fully separate, like a prettier version of this with only one bridge.

I got aboard a bus. On the bus I saw a sheet of Spanish lessons. There were nine categories of words, one of which was teeth. It had been used to teach some students who used the bus.

I looked at the Body Parts II category. It had several frames, each showing drawings of a woman with a blonde lob and a man with brown hair that looked like a roof. The respective body part was circled on both the woman and the man on each picture. The head/la cabeza showed the backs of their heads circled (one was facing the front, while the other was in profile). The hair/el pelo showed circles that somehow circled their hair. Then they had the chain (no la cadena for some reason), which was somehow categorized as a body part, and had the necklaces around the man's and woman's necks circled.

Soon it turned into an English/Spanish students' dictionary, alphabetically arranged, with the picture categories as a sort of preface. I thought about what words I would want to look up, then I woke up.

I dreamt one night this monstrosity.
I was on a mission from a government (I forget which country) to stop a mad scientist woman. I went to her castle and got in without a problem since I was wearing an invisibility cloak issued by the government. I found the mad scientist woman and she was talking to her cohorts, she had long brown hair and looked Mediterranean, maybe Greek or Cypriot, her name was Linnea. Her henchman was a short Japanese man named Fuji and he was speaking in Japanese talking about a cat named Baka-choo with buck teeth and a southern accent and singing "La Cucaracha".
I noticed 2 switches on the wall, a red switch and a green switch. I pressed the green switch, not knowing that the red switch was weirdly the right choice. Soon, I heard a siren wail. I heard a whirring sound from down the hall. I saw a robot guard that looked like an ordinary floor scrubber machine charging towards there. My invisibility cloak protected me against that, then I got into a bumper car-esque escape pod. I jettied out the window, which smashed it, and escaped and through a tracker bomb into the building. It blew up, spread tracker diodes everywhere, and the building exploded. It was a success and I woke up after that.

I've had a few vivid dreams over the past several nights. I only remember isolated scenes, but I'm writing them down so I don't completely forget them.

Dream No. 1:

I was attempting to pull my car out of a parallel-parking spot, but the car in front of me was moving back and forth and blocking my path. Eventually, I put my car in reverse and smoothly steered out of the space, backward, avoiding the car parked behind me. At the same moment, the car blocking me also reversed, but with me having gotten out of the way, it crashed into the car that had been behind me.

Things I don't remember happened until I was at home. I had a large-ish bag of small orange-colored seeds that if scattered would rapidly turn into small pigs. Even though I thought spreading the seeds was a bad idea, I did it anyway, scattering them in several rooms. I walked around the house, watching more and more pigs appear.

Dream No. 2:

I was reviewing some characteristic of phonology with another person. We were looking at IPA symbols on a long, narrow, horizontal board, with consonants near the left/beginning and vowels near the right/end. We started with the consonants, and when we got to the vowels, someone said that whatever aspect we were considering was less easily defined for vowels.

Things I don't remember happened, and then I was entering a prison with another person. The person was simultaneously an "original character" in her twenties and a woman I know in real life who is in her fifties or sixties; when I try to remember what this person looked like, I don't remember much, just my certainty of this combined identity. The prison was mostly concrete and built around an underground staircase. My companion told me her sister was among the prisoners, but I can't remember if she wanted to see her sister or avoid her. The cells opened onto the staircase, with bars keeping the prisoners in, and as we descended the staircase, I realized the cells were laid out so you could see who was in each cell before they could see you. We went down several floors, but when we started on the next flight of stairs, there was a cell positioned differently than the others, and taken off guard, my companion and I weren't able to see who was in it before reaching it. Inside was a young woman I knew to be my companion's sister. She looked like the character Foxface in "The Hunger Games" movie, but with an '80s style side ponytail. She approached us and said something I don't remember.

Dream No. 3:

I had been charged with teaching two of my friends about "Beowulf" even though I knew nothing about "Beowulf". I think I'd already given them their first lesson. While I was occupied with something in a different, forgotten storyline of the dream, they came up to me and let me know about several errors they'd noticed in my lesson. The first example was that I'd said the "-wulf" in "Beowulf" was a reference to a dog's "woof". They then proceeded to give me a test on aspects of the poem, which I think I managed to guess correctly.
