Last night: I was in a grocery store shopping and Dan Rather turns up. Turns out he is retiring and moving to my hometown. For some reason he is there trying to take care of a delinquent electricity bill from the former owners of the house he bought. He is having vegetables he bought chopped into tiny pieces as they roll down the conveyor belt at the checkout. He is prodding some deli meats my girlfriend got and saying how good it looks.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

Just like Rather - trying to sponge free deli meat off some schmo.

Had another singing dream where I made up a song. A slow reggae ditty.

I just don't want to stand here no more
I just don't want to stand here no more
My feets are tired from standing on the floor
I just don't want to stand here no more

(Bridge)

Da-da-da.- Da-da-ta tadada my girl (my girl)
Da-da-da.- Da-ta tadada your girl (your girl)

I just don't want to stand here no more
I just don't want to stand here no more
My feets are tired from standing on the floor
I just don't want to stand here no more


I was shopping in a big California supermarket. I just wanted a few things but the cashiers were impossibly backed up with customers and their overloaded shopping carts. Fatigued and disgusted I lay my head on my hands on the handle of my cart and began singing this song. And when I sang the "my girl - your girl" bit the other store customers repeated the words. When I got to the end of the song people, strangers, clapped. I went out to my car in the parking lot where my wife was waiting and I told her a bunch of people applauded for me in the store. "Oh oh, what did you do?" I told her I sang that song. Then my cell phone buzzed and out came my tinny voice singing the song. It was my friend from the CIA and he had somehow recorded me. He then laughed and hung up.

In part two of the dream my wife and I went to a California all you can eat restaurant and customers were eating hubcap sized baskets of lovely but huge fried potatoes. My wife and I looked at each other in disbelief at the portions and the fat Americans actually eating it.
I love you.

Your weird dreams
Don'€™t impress in any way
In dreams
Weird things are mundane and everyday
Strange to me would be
Buying a loaf
And coming straight home
Heard a voice shoutng "Don't jump! Please for God's sake let me move my car"

I'm with Davey The Fat Boy in a used record store. He's excited about scoring a giant poster - maybe 4 feet x 8 feet - of the Moody Blues A Question Of Balance album cover. It's impressive. Then the store clerk hips us to a vintage Herb Alpert & The Tijuana Brass LP box(ed) set of foreign origin which has a lot of cuts Davey and I haven't heard before - unreleased songs and alternate versions of old favorites - and we put one of the records on the stereo and sit on the store's couch listening and commenting.

(IRL, I've never met DTFB, and I don't normally associate him with Moody Blues or Tijuana Brass fandom. Not sure where this one came from.)

Last night I had some very convoluted, long dreams. One part of a dream was that Baron and I were in Oklahoma City and had gone to a Thunder game. We were in Oklahoma City's airport and we were going to San Antonio to see the Spurs play. I bought a newspaper and for some reason they had free weekly newspapers from Austin, TX, and Baron was taking stacks of them, passing them out to people in the terminal, trying to get people to move to Austin.

When I was a teenager I used to have a recurring dream where I'm walking through a rocky riverbed and poisonous snakes are trying to strike at me. Sometimes I try to escape them by reaching for a vine to pull me away and, you guessed it, the vine turns out to be a snake. The weird thing is, I never get bit. The other thing is I have no fear of snakes generally speaking. I respect them and keep my distance most of the time but me and a friend used to spend our days looking for snakes, lizards, etc. for fun. Maybe that's why I never got bit in my dreams. The recurrence of the dream went on for a few years and then stopped. I rarely remember dreams these days.

About a week ago: I'm driving and there is a traffic tie-up at a bridge. I get out of my car and shrink my car so I'm carrying it in a little bag and plunge ahead. Everyone is on foot and crowding in front of me, which annoys me. I notice that the bag with my car is shaking, which makes me think that it is about to blow up to full size, a thought which amuses me. I emerge from the tie up into a what looks like a store front. A person at a desk is stopping people and asking for some kind of papers or i.d. but they let me pass through. Outside is an intersection in Austin, where several of the numbered streets seem to intersect like spokes from a wheel. None of the numbering seems to make sense. There's 2 1/2 street and then 4th street next, etc. I look for 6th street, because I figure that I can find my way to wherever I'm going from there.
