Dreamscenes: Organic LEDs

I accidentally cut my heel on something on the floor. I sat down to check how bad it was. There was a flap of loose skin sticking on the side of my foot, so I pulled it off. There was some blood, but what surprised me was the rippling wave of honey-colored light that the […]

Dreamscenes: Putting My Foot Down

I had had enough. It was just too much to deal with. The living room was filthy, and none of my group were comfortable with the situation. I abandoned the niceties, and told Mama June (from the reality show “Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo”) straight out that we would not be dressing up like tamales to […]

Dreamscenes: Foreign Keyboard

I needed to use a computer, but the one I found was obviously a Chinese model, because the keyboard was large, flat, and covered with a myriad of tiny square buttons with Chinese characters on them printed in gold. There were a few that had Roman characters printed in light gray below the Chinese character, […]

Dreamscenes: Gully Oxygen

I was wandering through a hallway when I came upon an interesting poster that had all sorts of graphs and charts on it. Two of the main ones were layered bar graphs in a grayscale scheme that purported to lay out the various economic activities of the State of Massachusetts. One of the sections, relatively […]

Dreamscenes: Powder Attack

There was a group of us in a large hostel or other situation; it had the feel of a reality-TV show, but the end-game was nebulous and there were no obvious plants, producers or executives around. Something was going on, though; an old friend of mine had accused me of sexual harassment and the situation […]

Dreamscenes: Odd Reruns

I was waiting for a friend to finish shopping for groceries, and was sitting out in the large entryway where the shopping carts were lined up. There was an old TV lying face-up on the corner, so my wife and I  went over to have a look. It had knobs and dials for tuning, and […]

Dreamscenes: Heavy Weather

Nobody was panicking, everyone was calm, but the storm was intense and the rain was heavy. During a momentary lull, I looked out of the large picture window at the bright line of the horizon, where blue sky was framed by dark clouds and shining trees. We went outside to check on things, and the […]

Dreamscenes: Jamming with Sleater-Kinney

I was pretty stoked to play bass with Sleater-Kinney! We started up in an empty living room with beige carpet, with one whole wall open to the street. For some reason, Janet Weiss, the drummer, was not there, but that was okay. After a couple of jams they told me I should change into a […]

Dreamscenes: Low-Orbit Tourism

It was nice being on the observation deck of the International Space Station. The gibbous Moon was very clear and bright as it climbed the horizon to my left. I was surprised to find the air was cold but breathable, and you really didn’t need a space helmet, although the breeze was very strong if […]

Dreamscenes: Rare Album

I was able to score a copy of Black Sabbath’s “real” first album, Malleus Maleficarum, which was recorded on 8/5/74, according to the album artwork. The title track was excellent, and it had an early version of “Fairies Wear Boots”. However, it was packaged in a special “long” CD jewel case, which meant I had […]
