Re: The Dream Thread

I worked at Blockbuster for 2 and a half years (where I saw most my movies) and I last worked there in 2007 and on an almost daily basis for the last like 5 or 6 months, I have a dream where in some part or another I'm working at Blockbuster in some capacity.  It's actually really cool as I'd love to work there again despite them being SO close to out of business.  I don't like to read much in to my dreams but having this constantly is certainly trying to tell me something

I'm sure you could tell it was a dream right away.

Zippos NEVER BREAK!!! lol
Mine is 16 years old.

This was no ordinary Zippo, it was like some sci-fi steampunk thing when the case came off.  All kinds of weird stuff going on in there, and with the case off the guts of it were then the size of a shoebox.  Some Doctor Who shit, right there.

Re: The Dream Thread

I've got a good buddy that has cancer. I don't know how long he has as there is no cure. He's been going through chemo for a while now. I had a dream about him the other night.

We were walking down a steep path in the snow covered woods toward a frozen pond. Another friend was with us. Looking toward the pond I could see there were many people skating on it. As we walked we passed a few people who were all bundled up in winter gear out walking and enjoying themselves. Suddenly I realized that my friend had skate blades on his feet. He began to slip forward and then he took off quickly and out of control sliding down the path toward the pond. I watched as he sped to the bottom of the path and hit a dip which sent him flying into the air, tumbling wildly head over heels. He crashed into the pond and through the ice. Other people started falling through the ice as well. I ran to the edge of the pond, looking down through the ice and water, and selfishly thought I don't want to jump in. I was definitely afraid. My other friend urged me to go in after him. I jumped in and frantically looked for my friend in the dark cold water under the ice. I couldn't see him. I could see my other friend shove his arm into the water and point in a specific direction. I swam and searched but only saw darkness. Then I looked up and could see the light of day through the hole in the ice on the surface far above me and bubbles were floating up all around me.
Then I woke up.

Woah, freaky strange and creepy.

But as your friend is suffering from that crappy sickness that cancer is, it must mean something but what is beyond me.
They say that falling leads to real time Death but not for me, it happened more than once to me and I'm still living even if I'm Undead. big_smile

Never really care about the meanings as it's very different from one to another so meanings are probably different for each one.

But if I did a dream like yours, I'd try harder to find an explanation, I'm sure. My mom as read millions of books about this and is very good at explaining them.

Last time I slept, I had this dream I just hate.
A big black nothing at all. Can't stand these, they're my worst.
I'd rather be frightened to death than that suckage. Luckily it rarely hapens but when it does, I always wake up pissed off. Grumble. sad

Re: The Dream Thread

@Ken- I'd say it's your conscious/subconscious feeling of being helpless to help your friend.

I just realized that if I'm doing something in my dream for a long time, like eternally packing for a trip or taking a test forever, I've ran out of ideas for the night, and it's time to wake up.

Re: The Dream Thread

Interesting dream getken, I really wonder if our dreams tell us something about ourselves? 

I had another dream that is common to a lot of people last night, I dreamed that my teeth were falling out and when I wiggle it with my finger it would crumble like sand stone.

Re: The Dream Thread

I had a dream about Scarlett Johansson. She was my Succubus today.
Enough said. lol

Re: The Dream Thread

Had neat one during a nap today.  My late grandpa (WWII vet), my dad (all kinds of government/military stuff), and I (gov/mil stuff) went to a military convention together.  Was a very pleasant dream.  Woke up smiling.

I'd love to dream of a succubus Scarlett Johansson...lucky tongue

Re: The Dream Thread

Woke up from an odd one this morning.  I was Donald Pleasence's personal driver.  He was going on a double date with Simon Baker, who in my dream was an alcoholic with low self esteem.  I'm driving them to a concert in Pleasence's date's car; I drive the wrong way up an on-ramp.  Pleasence tells me to stop; I stick out my arm and, a la Sledge Hammer, say dramatically, "Trust me.  I know what I'm doing."  I slow down to take a turn into the arena lot.  Baker jumps out, angry.  We stop and try to talk him back into the car, but he won't listen.  Pleasence tells Baker he needs to go to rehab.  Baker gets pissed.  We start throwing beer bottles at his feet in order to scare him into going.

Then I woke up.  I even had a chuckle and quipped aloud, "Well, that was a strange one, Lon." lol

Re: The Dream Thread

Not since last week; same for Sledge Hammer.  Pleasence just came up the other night though (all that talk about Fatal Frames on Skype).  As I've said before, I think dreams are just the brain's way of defragging bits and pieces of data, forced into a narrative (however hackneyed) by the brain's subconscious need for structure and order.  Guess the ol' brain just back-burnered this one for a couple days. lol

Re: The Dream Thread

Nice way to describe dreams I find.

Re: The Dream Thread

This was strange.
Became a murderer.
An annoying lady pissing me off that transforms into a bug which I grab and press in my hand which kills it.
Cop car, they keep smashing me with their guns cause I keep throwing insults at them.
Jail cell, number 27. Shit all over the walls. I wake up.

Of course I woke up, damn, don't wanna spend I don't know how long is jailtime for a murder in my dream world in a shit cell. lol

Re: The Dream Thread

I had an odd dream that I was under attack on the forums by previous spammers that found my written beat downs too mean.  hmm
And that science (yes, actual science itself) was mad at me for not giving it credit in the Science-y Stuff Thread.  ???  lol

Re: The Dream Thread

Hahaha Wild one.

Mine was weird. I was in a place where people were screaming at each other because of politics so I got up went in the middle of the place and started screaming FUCK POLITICS, ANARCHY RULES ALL!!! I was then escorted to a cop car. I'm having lots of dreams where I end up in a cop car or in jail. Must be my desire to be an outlaw. lol

Re: The Dream Thread

I was on a movie set trying to set up my camera on a tripod, but the wedge plate on the camera wouldn't fit into the tripod no matter what I did. Very frustrating dream.

Re: The Dream Thread

Had the sickest and coolest nightmare I've ever had.
I was into Evil Dead's cabin, possessed, slicing my arms and face with a knife and stuff.
Man that was cool.

Was even more badass than the movie and remake trailers.
Blame the bunch of TV spots I saw last night before going to bed.

I like being possessed in my dreams.
Yeah, I'm EVIL, I know. lol

Re: The Dream Thread

Fucked my ex by the side of her head. Shows you how much of a slut head the bitch was. She's probably the person I hate the most in the whole Universe. More than Bieber can you imagine how much hate goes for her??? big_smile

Re: The Dream Thread

This might make you like Beiber a bit more...
