dream thread revival
Posted 16 June 2004 - 11:15 AM
It was a shooter game. The player flew around in a white, triangular-shaped ship. But, unlike most shooter games, this game did not take place in space. The levels that I witnessed were above very high mountains. It was extremely cloudy, so the enemy ships were hard to see coming. The game moved extremely fast. Like, F-Zero fast. And the whole game was done in Mode 7. The ship flew around a bit, shooting enemy ships as they past by. The enemy ships were kinda round and were blue colored.
Eventually, it went to a different level, with a very cool transition to it. The camera stopped following the ship and watched as it quickly made a turn into the mountains. Now the ship was flying a round in a tunnel, heading down. There was ice everywhere. I remember the ship was picking up items as it was flying down this tunnel. And I very vividly remember the music playing in this level. It sounded a lot like the boss batlle music in Final Fantasy: Mystic Quest.
Then, finally, it got to the boss fight. The fight took place in an icy room that was completely sealed off, so that the ship could not leave. Now, this was a strange boss. The boss was a woman, floating around in a suit of armor and had a couple pieces of cloth billowing around her. The way the ship beat her was it shot her so many times that she would eventually fall out of her armor and fall to the ground, leaving her naked! Strangely, her armor was still flying around above her. Without her armor, the boss took damage from the ship's shots. But, it wouldn't be long before she would float back into her suit of armor. Eventually, after falling out of her armor a bunch of times, she blew up in a big, firey explosion and the level ended as the ship blew a hole in the ceiling and flew into the sky.
That's where the dream ended. Now, can somebody tell me... is there a game out there that is like that? I really want to play it!

So it goes through this montage of us beating the shit out of doctors and shit and stuff starts slowly changing. Finally, police start surrounding the area. I sit next to my grandmother and she starts talking about our heritage, past and what I did that day was great. I tell her what I did was wrong and I'd have to pay for it...literally.
I leave the room and go to the roof with a quarter. The place is fucking SURROUNDED. So I drop a quarter on an unknowing cop and it kills him. They all then look up and I see a third person of me...yes...in stormtrooper armor...jumping down onto them, some gun in hand, firing and firing..
It all went black and I awoke in the streets of a destroyed city...like at the end of the Resident Evil movie. I say, "Aaaah, fuck.." and Jeff wakes up next to me. Jeff says, "Fuck.." and I say, "Yep.."
"...we missed the goddamn bus."

Weird.. I've had that same exact dream several times.
I was always amazed at people having reoccuring nightmares until mine came back.. it strikes a couple times a year really. Mine is that I sign up for a math class (always math), take it a couple times and somehow forget that I'm enrolled. So I don't go to any of the classes until just before finals I remember I'm in this class and it is too late to drop it. I go in and the board is covered with equations I can't even begin to decipher and I am in a total panic.

It all started at some nameless convenience store in a neighboring state where the bosses had arrived for a show at a hotel and were picking up Red Bull (incidentally most likely the cause of this dream). I soon arrived at the store and said hi to the 'bosses and Shizzites who'd come, and Raubhimself soon followed. It was supposed to be "the ultimate bossie meetup" and more came I think, but I only remember Raub specifically, mostly because I got a kick out of saying "raubhimself".
The show was one of the best ever, and everyone was happy and we went back to our rooms after some socializing. Then weird shit started to go down. The power failed and something started stalking everyone through the halls. The hotel was also a hospital, and I was sneaking around on the upper levels trying to figure out what was going on. For some reason my dream shifted perspectives then to a female hospital worker. She was walking around and checking up on a patient who seemed really nice but somehow knew a lot of security codes. When she got back to her office, she checked on her computer and found out he had installed Silent Hill 2 on her computer as a favor (what better way to show your love? ...). But then she checked his files and discovered he had some kind of powers and "a strong connection to the other side" which creeped her out.
Anyway, her and her slimy partner decided to take off, because things were still creepy outside. They were wandering around the halls when they looked down one and saw some wandering schoolgirls who started exploding one after another. They made a break for the lower levels (as I did as well). When we had reached Level 1, we checked a computer and found out that the underground levels had security failures. The lower levels were prisons, so all the prisoners of the very high security prison had escaped and would be after us.
The next thing I remember is that we ran for the exit and made it outside, where the crowd from the hotel had gathered, including the bossies, my father, and some of my best friends from high school who had come to see the show. I was told that my dad had set the whole thing up a la "The Game" as a fun present, but now that it was over my friends and I would have to change our identities and move to Ohio so we wouldn't be stalked in the future by the prisoners or whatever was in the hotel/hospital/prison. I was kind of pissed at this because I wanted to move to Alaska, but Burke gave me his I.D. Card (like a general one you get for opening doors or whatever in games) and I was cool with that. Then we all walked down the street and it was over, which was too bad, because I wanted to get the I.D. Card signed.
When I went back to sleep again after waking from this, I dreamed I was in another hotel looking for a 'bosses concert but instead I found some guy who looked like John Stewart giving talks about different Final Fantasy songs while a display showed CG and actors playing out parts from the games. There was an orchestra that would play very short (30 seconds to a minute) rearranged versions of the songs that sucked. Especially bad was the actor on the screen dressed up as Shadow who had some background monologue on how he used to be a prince and had to hide to escape his past. I was dissapointed the 'bosses didn't play.
All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes, to make them possible.

Somehow, my friends and I were on a road trip in a semi truck. One of my friends, Daniel, was driving and we ended up in LA somehow. And when we were there, he started goofing off by getting out of the driver seat and was hanging out of the door with it wide open and acting really stupid. All of a sudden we were at this fancy hotel, like a Ritz Carlton or something. It was just me and my other friend (Chewy) this time and we see Tom Brokaw or some other news journalist, who's with his family and he tries to deck my friend! Brokaw's family is holding him back and I ask my friend what happened, and he said that he sort of screwed up Brokaw's news show. Then some how we transported to San Diego where my aunt lives...and I guess we come back to Phoenix. I would like to know what the hell is Brokaw doing in my dream!?

That is all.

What a nightmare!
Posted 17 July 2004 - 01:18 AM
aaron and phil were starting 'the furr's' but the mic kept cutting out, then i realized i forgot my camera. i announced it and everyone looked at me all shocked-like.
then ben just turned his back to me and wouldn't talk to me, acting like i did it on purpose.
then he turned around and let me know that he was just kidding. that crazy ben.
a few nights before that i had a dream that i was hanging out with the bosses back when they were still in ma. we were hanging out in an apartment, and ben said "your name is cameron right?" and i said "yeah, but you guys are going to be calling me mig in a few years." to which matt replied "no way. no way in hell will that happen."
then some kind of crime went down and we thought we could stop the perp. we were on foot while he was in a vehicle, but aaron knew the streets and alleyways like the back of his hand, and thought we might be able to cut him off. he said if we weren't able to catch up to him we'd just go to some party. we ended up at this house party. matt was showing me around a little, then i woke up.

I was inside a giant mall, standing in front of a factory...all this smoke and shit was coming out of it and it looked pretty daunting. People were walking around and someone said that The Minibosses are playing here today, and I say "That's why I'm here!". Scene changes to the inside of the factory or something, I'm walking up some stairs and down a corridor with those middle school desks which you could store stuff in them (but not the desks that you open up).
Colin's sitting at one desk holding like 20 packs of guitar strings, some chicks are behind him, giggling about something, and at the desk in front of him is a giant red bag with the word KYUSS written in white. I ask Colin whether Kyuss was gonna play tonight too, and he said "Only if Woody lets us".
Scene changes to the mall again (I think it was the mall, I dunno), and it's deserted except for this giant statue of a man in a huge top hat. I walk towards it, and Burke comes out of nowhere, holding 2 walkie talkies. He hands me one and says "we need to try to help that kid from Tibet. He really wants to make this show, so we should make it happen for him." I keep walking towards the statue, and see a door in one of the feet...I bust it open and this weird festival music starts playing and some guy bolts out and runs away. I run into the door and I'm back in the corridor where I previously saw Colin...except now it's all deserted again and instead of desks there are these square door frames in the walls that lead into these tiny cells. I go into one and there's a kid there that told me "A mighty wizarad died here".
That's when I woke up.

I'm not sure whether I'm more amused about Kyss being "us" or Woody being in charge.
I ask Colin whether Kyuss was gonna play tonight too, and he said "Only if Woody lets us".
That has got to be one of the best dreams ever. I wish it was me that had it.

0) Be pumped about MAGfest
1) Play 10 minutes of a scary game (SH4)
2) Go to bed listening to my "Rock" playlist, which included Kyuss, while reading War Of The Twins (that's where the Wizard thingy came from, I wager)
I dunno about Tibet...maybe it's some reference to Xandraaiiaiain's inability to attend Mag?

I've been all worried recently because I've never driven to Williamsburg and even if I make it to the place I won't know what to do. but I guess we'll see.
