someone gave me a goldfish in a bag. Taking care of it is now my mission but I don't have fish stuff. I decant the fish into the upturned cover from a spindle of blank cds. I will get fish stuff and do this right.

the thing about dreams is you only get to do them once
how come when people in real life tell me their dreams I'm bored out of my skull but when people here do it I read every one carefully. Is this prodromal fail AIDS ?
I don't read them
this dream was way better, though. i mean, all the above was technically true, but i didn't care at all, because i was just hanging out alone in the band room, teaching myself to play harp
"remember to like and subscribe"
i don't wake up in sweats or scared or nothing like that though, i wake up like i usually do

condolences - the rona?
not sure... had a test yesterday. highly unlikely based on current lifestyle. seems to actually be a neurological issue that triggered a fever. waiting on a different test to confirm that.
i did, however, have a dream last night that i was searching for silver coins in a tide pool on a beach in the middle of the night.
the song for your dream:
i picked it up in a haze and walked away with it, thinking i'd give it to some young person who i was related to. a few minutes later it turned on and said something like "notifying police. nonpayment. notifying police. nonpayment" and i realized that i indeed had not paid for it. which was an accident i think it was only a few bucks. so i turned around and went back to the story to apologize for my mistake and go pay. when i got there though the clerk pulled it out of my hands and tased me. i remember him putting handcuffs on me as i passed out.
Clearheaded, I now realize that this movie is a patchwork combination of other memories and sensations I have and is unlikely to be a real movie which exists in reality.
The movie is directed by Lars Von Trier.
The movie begins when a family arrives at the beach and has a picnic. There's a mom, a young boy, and a few younger daughters. Maybe there's more children. There's a large dog -- a fat golden retriever with gritty hair -- running around although it isn't indicated whether it's a family dog or a stray. The picnic goes well and the family goes down the the shoreline to play at the beach.
As the sun begins to set, the dog lies dead near the shoreline. This is not concerning to anyone, and the boy plays in the sand near the dog. Soon, someone reaches their hand into the dog near it's lungs, ripping the skin and crushnig the ribcage.
The water rises and the sun continues to set. The girls are playing and giggling, which I realize is reminiscent of the young children in Kafka's The Trial who are annoying K. as he is speaking to the painter/expert in his aparment. Although the sky is darker, boy and the dog are now lying in water a few inches deep.
The boy rips open the dog's side and entirely removes the stomach, and whatever other organs connect to it. He bites it. The water surrounding the pair is mixed with blood and other juices. This scene reminds me of the shot from Lars Von Trier's Antichrist, when the fox which is eating its self says "chaos reigns." This is an emotionally cathected moment for me.
I'm showing the movie to my dad, who leaps up at this point and exclaims, "What the fuck? I expected it to be in pretty! This is disgusting! If I wanted ...." as if a movie can be "in pretty" or "in disgusting" just like it can be "in black and white."

obama was there too, but for some reason the only other thing i had to throw was a gallon of turkey hill strawberry ice cream. both impacted, so it worked out
recurring nightmare in which i have moved to the suburbs of tampa florida. not sure how i know its tampa, i never been there. im riding around in a bus trying to figure out where i live, all the houses and apartment complexes are indentical. the bus has a route map that is incomprehensible. i get off at a roadside bus shelter, my bus drives off. the same bus drives by a few min later going the same direction
a bus in tampa? that really is a dream!
The title of the movie is a single word, which is vague and difficult to remember (hate when directors do this).
The beginning of the movie is something like Twin Peaks -- our rogue mysterious main character is sent to a rural town in New England. Attractive man with black hair. He's there because his boss told him to go, he doesn't particularly want to be there. He's part of some obscure industry, possibly drug related. His boss is bald and is identical to a coworker of mine.
Spending time in the town, he meets some exotic and quirky characters. One is an old man, mostly bald, who is always carrying a pangolin around the back of his neck. Here's the kicker -- the pangolin is imaginary, and everyone plays along because he's such a nice man. In my brain, the concept of this man comes from two sources: 1. The man looks like the old guy in this video: and the whole "pangolin around his next" is probably related to a man I saw a few years ago walking around a grocery store with a cat relaxing on his shoulders.
The main character wants to stay since he's having such a good time here, and wants to get out of the industry. Around this point, there is a socialist revolution and the territory of the u.s. is reduced to new england. The name becomes "People's Republic of Eastern United States" or whatever. I only remember the "People's republic" part of the name since that's the important point.
Meanwhile, the town has a festival and everyone is rejoicing. The old man, who everyone thought was insane, lets his pangolin slide into his cupped hands. He releases it, realizing his hands are empty, saying "oh... that's what a pangolin is." The man is able to connect on a deeper level with his fellow townsfolk. At this point of the dream, I am in tears. I am bawling at the emotional turnaround this man made.
While tears flood from my eyes, the main character contacts his boss who allows him to stay. I wake up and my eyes are dry, so a new dream achievement i suppose is crying.
