I wish I remembered the details of my dreams with that kind of perfect clarity. I wish that my dreams were spoilers. I mostly dream about other planets, and space.

I think if they inspire us or evoke emotions of some kind, then that's pretty fantastic. I've never interpreted my dreams to be anything beyond whatever is dancing around in the deep recesses of my idiot monkey brain.

Memory is so weird. Personally I only remember how to do things and very little else, bad with events and awful with people. Naturally I don't remember even having dreams most of the time, let alone what happened in them. If I do, it's for a few minutes as I'm waking up and they clear out for good. 

 

I'd generally think of dreams as free-associative thought and not meaning much except "hey, this seems to be a thing I'm fixated on because I keep dreaming about it with strong feelings associated," though.

I still remember the first nightmare I ever had. Probably was four years old.

 

Pounding on our door in the middle of the night. I yelled at my folks to get the door, no answer. So I got out of bed and went to the door - the main entrance to the house was through the living room, but the door we always used was the one in the driveway next to the garage that lead into the kitchen, so that was the door I went to and the one that was being pounded on. In addition to the door itself, there was a screen door attached. I open the door and look out on our driveway to see nobody standing by the door but a unfamiliar black car with one of those gaudy hood ornaments that were all the rage in the 80s. Oldsmobile I think, but that could be time supplying details the dream didn't have.

 

Anyways, no one around but I notice a small hole in the screen. Being a four year old, I obviously put my finger in the hole and a big, hairy thing - like a cross between a Wampa and a Teddy Bear - rears up on the other side of the screen and bites my finger with a maw full of white fangs.

 

I wake up.

 

Thirty freaking years later, I still remember it like it was yesterday.

I tend to just suddenly remember dreams (or impressions of dreams) going about my day. Like, particular words or smells or whatever will somehow just trigger a memory. Corn bread....OH, I'm in a weirdly huge mall looking for something and the stores keep closing, in a dream I mean. Maybe last night, maybe weeks ago? Nothing to do with corn bread though.

 

 

So many of the dreams I can remember with any detail are fairly disturbing... like peoples heads just cracking open revealing nothing, me floating away like a balloon with the vague feeling of a wish coming true in the wrong way, back at high school with no clue as to what my schedule is or where the classes are or what my locker combination is, a crocodile I have to draw that keeps changing, pulling an endless supply of staples out of my hand with morbid fascination, getting caught in a nuclear blast and being aware for a few moments after being vaporized...

Criminy, why am I posting this before bed???

I remember having nightmares as a kid and they would hurt. I remember falling and hitting the ground. Most people wake up before hitting the ground, but not me. I hit the ground in my dream and it hurt. But regardless of where I fell from or where I landed, when ever I looked up from the ground I always saw this red and white stripped swing set. I imagine at some younger age that I can't remember I must of fell from a striped swing set and it must have really hurt. When ever my dreams have falling, my brain subconsciously relives that pain I felt.

I'm told I giggle a lot while dreaming. I dunno if that's cute, or unsettling.

Memory is so weird. I can describe in exquisite detail every outfit worn by every woman I've been on a date with and could probably draw a picture of my wife's face in the dark, but I don't remember anyone's birthday. We go through it every year. I still didn't know whether my own mother's birthday falls on the 22nd or the 23rd. I only know it happens on the same day Kennedy was shot. (Which was the 22nd, by the way. Yesterday. Don't worry, I sent her a big box of stuff.)

According to my wife, she can hold entire conversations with me while I'm asleep. My subconscious is quite coherent, apparently. The first time, I was apparently discussing the plot of Bioshock (Which she'd been playing before coming to bed). She didn't believe me for a long time afterwards that I was asleep for that conversation and recalled nothing of it.

 

And yeah, Birthdays aren't something my mind considers a priority at all. The biggest boon to the social media craze is the fact it helps me remember when people's birthdays are.

Phone numbers. People complain that they have lost the ability to remember phone numbers since cell phones were invented, but I was ALWAYS terrible about that, so that particular feature of modern electronic convenience is delightful to me.

I love talking about dreams, but my god mine make no damn sense.

 

As for Nightmares, I still remember my last one. I was young. Between Seven and like twelve or something. It involved two guys I don't know running from 'something'  I remember them finding a boarded up door they couldn't get past. I remember them having a cut on their hand, and it oozing blood. They peeled back the skin for some reason to reveal their hand was hollow. No bones or anything, just this leaf like skin.

 

Last part of it I recall was this guy or one of them having a purple head that had purple worms sticking out. All of them were wiggling, and I distinctly remember one being only half a worm.

 

 

Then... that was it. I never had another nightmare. I don't know why, and couldn't tell you what I did, but I just... didn't.

 

I've had dreams that SHOULD have been nightmares, but I just wasn't scared.

 

One I remember being very weird, was a Jurassic Park like dream. Dinosaurs were smashing through walls, grabbing and eating people, except even the T-Rex walking right up to me didn't scare me. I just somehow knew it couldn't or wouldn't kill me.

 

Then to make it even weirder, I had the exact same dream the next night. Except I mean it was the same only in the same things happened at the same time. It was like groundhogs day the movie. Right down to I knew I had the dream before, so I spent it going: "No! Don't stand by that wall! The T-Rex smashes through and eats you!" So the people near the wall would run away and when the T-Rex broke the wall down, he couldn't hurt or kill anyone. I spent the entire dream telling people where to go and where not to stand, preventing the dinosaurs from being able to get anyone.

Posted 20 January 2018 - 08:13 AM

Okay, so I just had a dream, and am posting what I remember here. If this has some meaning, please let me know.

 

It started weird off the bat.I was dressed in a tan trench coat walking to the store. I know I was at my grandma's place from when I was a teen, because they use to live right behind a Toys R Us, except in the dream the path lead to a supermarket.While moving I kept thinking how if I wore a zombie mask, I'd look like Mr. X from the Resident Evil games. (AKA a Tyrant)

 

I was walking along eating a block of cheese I brought into the store. Using some sort of power to cut slices. I remember grabbing and drinking a can of Root Beer (a real brand too that's made with cane sugar) Then going up to the register to pay for it.

 

Then for whatever reason, instead of me, I'm seeing Spongebob do this, and the entire store has changed to match his world. (Fish manning the registers etc) The fish working the till laughs saying how he's (Spongebob) one of the hardest workers there, and is trying to pay for a soda when he never takes his allowed free drink employees get every day. Spongebob laughs about this and moves on. At the end I think he realizes he had overtime or something, and thought about telling the higher ups about that, but decides that'd make him look silly again and it'll work itself out.

 

Then I'm waiting outside with someone. It was some guy I don't know. I remember seeing him in the store too. We're outside a typical 'old lady' home, except I don't think anyone actually lives there. (I think the guy was African american, and I know he wore glasses.)

 

There is snow outside, but we don't seem to mind. We're waiting there because a service I'm pretty sure has shown up in my dreams before, or I just think it did is coming around.

 

So this construction vehicle comes up. It's like a loader, the thing with the 'digging tool' at the end of a long metal arm. Except on this one, instead of a tool to dig in the dirt, it's a high definition tv. It comes up and places the tv next to us so we can watch a cartoon.

 

The cartoon is this sorta typical late 80's, early 90's fare. There is a group of good guys, and a group of bad guys. The gimmick is that each car they drive is a combination of two animals. I don't remember any specifics, but it'd be something like a Rhino/Cheeta. Except it's a car you drive with weapons and stuff.

 

Even weirder, in the dream I remember an episode that came before this one where they were fighting a vehicle that was sentient. It was this huge thing with tank threads, and it had the tail of a scorpion, the body of a spider, and the neck head of a dragon.

 

I know it wasn't the leader of the bad guys. The leader was a human who had captured one of the heroes and was taunting the other heroes with his safety. He had the hero encased in some mechanical chair and was swinging him around on a wire attached to a crane.

 

Back in the 'real' world. The loader with the TV leaves during a commercial break. I'm sitting outside waiting for it on a leather chair. The guy with me needs to go do something and leaves.

 

The driver of the loader comes back and sets the TV back up so I can watch, when he gets out to plug his generator up to the house. Which I guess has power despite no one actually living there.

 

He's complaining/talking about how his job is to just 'go where people tell him' and the guy with the glasses who was with me before is the one who paid this guy to be here right now.

 

The reason he's complaining though, is he left to fulfill another request which turned out to be picking up a basket with a mother and father cat and their kittens. He's pissed that he's being used to transport these cats, but ended up having to take them as he was afraid they'd just leave them outside in the snow to fend for themselves. He sets the basket on a table near a wall or fence. We are outside, but I think there is an overhang keeping the snow away.

 

He goes around the side of the house to plug his generator up and comes back laughing about two rabbits by the front door.

 

I look and they are made of marble, except they can stop being 'frozen in place' and move around. I call to them and one actually jumps onto my lap. I pet it, and it feels like if marble could somehow mimic what fur and softness feels like, while still having the texture of marble.

 

Then I woke up.

 

These are my dreams. This is really typical of the kind of dreams I have.

Had a dream this morning. Gave me a headache cuz I think I was trying to see it to it's conclusion before I was really awake.

It something like Ready player One where someone had a secret prize in a Disneyland type place. I was exploring the park. I remember encountering a water or puddle room I needed to escape from. There were attendants that I needed to avoid.

The location where the prize thing was revealed as a location on the map called Constantine. Are we not suppose to be able to read stuff in dreams? Maybe I was waking up.

I realize the prize must be won by communicating with a lady named Constantine. Either she told me the prize, which was secret I couldn't understand. Or it was a secret to winning the prize. I dunno. I had to wake up then.

That's why I try to write some down. I've seen some that would make rather interesting series.

Same here. 

 

I remember one dream in which I was making my way through a new town, and as part of it came upon an old-school video arcade. 

 

Located in the back were a trio of vintage Transformers pinball games, still plugged in and still working. The game from 1985 focused on Tracks and someone else (Red Alert?) and told a story as you earned points; I guess the story varied based on what parts of the game you triggered. The game from 1986 was a simple Movie tie-in, with no story or anything to avoid spoilers. The game from 1987 also seemed to tell a story, but I don't remember who it featured. 

 

The '87 game's demo mode featured a message about who you could contact to get your own personal version of the game, and in my dream I was more than ready to write that down just in case the contact information was still valid. 

 

...And then the family cat woke me up, like he usually does at the good parts of whatever dreams I'm having.
