Experience is the best - best meaning most pleasant.
We've had years of practice.

I'm going to go into the secret vault and edit a few things, because I know some people like to ego surf...if you know what I mean...this won't hurt a bit...
OK, now I'm back. Yes, he likes a certain Asian food. You betcha.
Again, as Ben said to Josie, "Well Played."
Weird that we both finished at the same time, heh heh heh.

"Even in Seatle?"
We both know who were looking for. Yes she is into doing the Lord's work. The music person you're talking about loves ty food - true?

Why, whatever gave you THAT impression? :::BIG GRIN!:::
Very good, Stan.
Posted by Ann on 06/14/03@09:39 PM CST ..::Link::..
As for the music person.
Is this person connected to B*-*-?
Posted by Stan on 06/14/03@09:38 PM CST ..::Link::..
Ah, I think I now know the identity of the Mystery Girl!
Did she save any souls while she was away?
Posted by Ann on 06/14/03@09:38 PM CST ..::Link::..
This is a friend, but I have worked with this person too.
Posted by Stan on 06/14/03@09:36 PM CST ..::Link::..
Lux Interior is much taller than 5'6"!
Not a relelative? Isn't that sort of like Prairairairairairie?
Is this person a friend of ours (as opposed to someone we've worked with or went to school with or something)
Posted by Ann on 06/14/03@09:34 PM CST ..::Link::..
This person is not a relalitive.

Flipper how flippant of me - I wanted to ask about the Cramps.
Posted by Stan on 06/14/03@09:30 PM CST ..::Link::..
We also never saw Rollins live.
We almost did, just recently, but I guess the tickets were rather much for just the Henry Rollins Lecture Series, just having lost Hieronymus and gained a puppy and car and all.
Ha ha...I just got your joke. Of course the person is male or female (rolling eyes). Let's hope...those hermaphrodites are rather freaky.
We never saw Generic Flipper. Don't know too much about the members, either.
Yes, for Eno, knighthood would be a step down from God. Good one.
Is this female related to you?
Posted by Ann on 06/14/03@09:30 PM CST ..::Link::..
I don't understand the old Brittish order enough to form good opinions.
Would Eno really be interested in something like that? They should Knight Kieth Richards, or better yet make him King Righards. Kieth the leather skinned ruler - see I think for him it would be just one more reason to party - so it would be meaningful for him. I just don't know what Eno might think - after all wouldn't it be a step down from being God?
As for the female it's not the moter cycle mother of a sister of mine.
As fr your question - does this have anything to do with Generic Flipper?
Posted by Stan on 06/14/03@09:27 PM CST ..::Link::..
Do you think that Eno will ever be knighted?
I mean, why not?
BTW, Henry Rollins is ALSO very good guess, all things considered. However, I think Hank has a lot more hair on the top of his head than you do even, even though he keeps it shorter.
Back to knighthoods and such...I mean, ok, here's the scoop. Bob Geldoff got knighted way back when (because of Live Aid). Essentially, Bob acted in Roger's movie. He almost "played" Roger. Now David is getting this CBE (which is one step less than knight) and David sang much of Roger's words, played his compositions, etc. I guess I'd feel pretty...um...disgruntled right now if I were Roger. And people complain that he wanted credit? Bah! I say he didn't get enough credit.
Is it your largest sister? The one we were just discussing? Motorcycle Mama?
Posted by Ann on 06/14/03@09:20 PM CST ..::Link::..
Yes, one or the other.

...male or female?

All Things Considered...
Jello Biafra is a very good guess when you look at all the facts presented. However:
a) I have no idea when his birthday is (not that you would know that, as you probably think I know the birthday of every rock musician ever born)
b) I would suspect he's a lot taller than 5'6", but I don't know
c) I always thought he was rather good looking, definitely not ugly.

Bad Boys don't get Knighthoods (or any other sort of Archaic British Reward)

Mysterious Odors, part 2
I kept smelling something like cat pee all day long. I couldn't figure it out. Was it coming from me? No, I just showered and my clothes were clean. And why would I smell like cat pee and not just people sweat anyway (not that I smelled, mind you)? Was it the chair I was sitting in? No... Did a cat pee on a carpet? No... What was it? Dammit! As I grabbed my slipper to take the dog outside, I realized a cat, probably Persephone, at some unknown time in recent history (because I usually just "slip" into my slippers instead of touching them with my fingers), had peed on my left slipper. The bitch.

This leaves me with a very odd feeling
Taken from a BBC website: "In music, Dave Gilmour, lead guitarist of Pink Floyd, gets a CBE. He recently donated £3.6 million from the sale of his mansion to a project providing housing for the homeless." OK, a part of me is happy...
Grand Cross GBE
Knight/Dame KBE/DBE (Mick Jagger, Paul McCartney were both knighted)
Member MBE (this is what the Beatles got in 1966...John gave his back, didn't he?)
...afterall, it's someone from Pink Floyd receiving an archaic British Order! Yet, at the same time, I'm thinking it was sort of *bought* in a way, what with the donation. Maybe I'm just a tad disappointed because it wasn't Roger Waters, who has been donating a large part of his earnings for a very long time, but not in one fell swoop with massive media attention like Gilmour did. And granted, Roger might have pulled a Lennon, but I doubt it, after all, he is older now and when Lennon did that he was in his 20s. I don't know...it's hard to say. Somewhere I read last year when Jagger was knighted, it caused quite a rift between him and Keith Richards. Jagger said something like (very paraphrased) "Keith shouldn't be jealous beause he would've refused it anyway." Well, it's not as if this will cause a rift between David and Roger...heh heh heh.
I don't know what to say...it's just a strange feeling. I feel like I've been through this before, myself, personally, but differently. It's like working really hard in college for its own reward, and then having some scholarship or TA pass you by because Terry Mattheson sucked up to the profs. (Or like my episode with the Section 8 Nazi from college not wanting my work in his gallery while he takes on less challenging art) Not equating Gilmour with Mattheson, of course, I mean Gilmour has amazing talent as a guitarist. But maybe that's it...Terry Mattheson (in all his/her incarnations) had talent, but that's all it was.
Am I way off course, Stan, or should I be shot for saying such blasphemous things?
Why do I feel sad? Shouldn't I be happy?

DREAM: Refugee Cats
I was at Stan's adopted mom's house. For some reason, she had a toilet that was inside a clawfoot tub. There was a towel in the tub, but when I flushed the toilet, it somehow managed to flush down the toilet. I was worried I screwed up their plumbing. This is at least the second time I dreamt about flushing cloth down a toilet. That dream woke me up, and when I went back to sleep I continued to have a dream with Stan's mom in it. I can't remember much of it though...driving around...vague. I do remember something about a young woman...college age or just out of college, who adopted two cats, but didn't have any place to keep them because her landlord didn't allow cats. She was trying to keep them hidden in the basement. But then it turned strange, and it was as if the girl herself was hiding in the basement, like she was some war refugee...an Anne Frank or something.

Dream with everything covered in white.
In this dream I had been driving in the mountains and my car slid off the road. The roads were icy and everything wes covered in snow. I was outside of the car picking up my wallet, a book and a record album. I looked at the car and realized that it wasn't in the spot where I had the accident. Even stranger than the car being out of place was the fact that my tracks in the snow didn't lead back to the car. The car was also completely covered in snow. This car was a car my addopted father had traded to me back in 1985, and it was a white LTD with a red vinal top.I noticed that my tracks in the snow did lead back to the sight of the accident - even though the car itself was no longer there. I followed my tracks back over the small ridge to the road. There were lots of people on that road who were walking to a nearby town. I thought since I had some mail to drop off I could walk to the town too. When I got to the town there was a bank next to the mail drop box with a young woman standing outside and advertizing the bank interest rates. They were giving 54 cents on the dollar. I thought that sounded like a great rate, but I dropped off my mail and started walking back to my car. I began to think that because I couldn't see my tracks leading back to the car I must have had some sort of supernatural experience.
While I was walking I went by a park where my grandfather - a biological grandfather whom I've never met IRL - was reading letters to people in a park. I heard him read something my biological father had writen about me. Something about Ann and I buying sepperate insurance policies. I went up to my grandfather to tell him it wasn't true, and he said he already knew. We walked to a restrauant and sat in a booth with two other young women. One of them began to talk.
I soon realized that the way people were talking was quite differant than anything I've heard before. I wanted to tell them about my supernatural experience with my trackt not leading back to the car, but it was as if they already knew before I could tell them. The young women in the booth was talking about some art and things Ann was working on, but it was not as though she had actually seen anything she was talking about. I soon understood that the woman in the booth and my grandfather's letter reading, were dead people channeling the thoughts of the living.
It occured to me that if I were listening to the dead talk about the thoughts of the living, then I must have died in the accident, and that's why I didn't have any tracks in the snow leading back to the car.

Are you giving up? Period? Is that it? Certainly you haven't looked through ALL the CDs in our collection.
Anyway, your last guess, Jim Morrison, WOULD be heard on RockHitsZ107. Think, Stanley, Think.
OK, let's recap what we've established:
It's a male.
He is alive (unless there is something I haven't heard, but I think we would know...trust me on this one.)
He has less hair on the top of his head than you do, but more than Michael Stipe.
We have him on at least one CD in our collection, but we probably have not listened to it recently.
He is adept at various musical instruments.
We have heard him sing.
He is not Lou Reed or Iggy Pop or a Meat Puppet or Tom Waits or someone in REM or Nirvana or Sonic Middle Aged People (not to mention anyone who is dead).
We have heard him on a non-commercial radio station, however that doesn't necessarily mean we've heard his MUSIC (or his band's music, if he is not a solo artist) on the radio. Hmmmm...what does this mean? Have we heard him interviewed as a special guest or something? Or something else entirely? Something to think about....
What have we not established?
His height and weight (approx.)
Is he part of a band or a solo artist?
His or his band's geographical locale
Did we ever see him in the flesh?
His astrological sign
Single? Married? Straight? Gay?
Handsome or ugly?
Famous or obscure?
Idolizable or nutcase?
Deadhead or Anglophile?
Beatles Man or Elvis Man?
Nose: Pug or Aquiline?
Pig, Dog or Sheep? heh heh heh
You still have a lot of ground to cover.

In the non supernatural catigory of questionalble death.
Never travel to France if you're a U.S citizen. You just don't want to die in France, because if you do no one can ever really know if you actually died or not.
Posted by Stan on 06/12/03@09:32 PM CST ..::Link::..
My response as to where he lived...
...Was one of geography, not metaphysics.
And no, it's not Screamin' Jay! He's dead anyway, right?
Posted by Ann on 06/12/03@09:29 PM CST ..::Link::..
Well if we're not sure.
In the case of supernatural questions as to what's dead or alive, and do we really know?
It could be Screamin' Jay Hawkins.
Posted by Stan on 06/12/03@09:27 PM CST ..::Link::..
As far as I know...
...he lives. But where does he live? Oh, that's the question, isn't it?

Dead or Alive!
Is this person dead or alive?

...I have misled you yet again.
Anyway, Lou Reed's "Satellite of Love" was in Velvet Goldmine.
But you know how much Bill hates Lou Reed. Therefore, how would Bill (aka Jerry Seinfeld in the dream) know that Lou would be releasing an album? This must be someone Bill would be more familiar with, no? Perhaps?
Posted by Ann on 06/12/03@09:12 PM CST ..::Link::..
The intelectual jungle of public radio.
I can only think of two intelectual giants, who are U.S. citizens, worthy of being heard on public radio.
One person's music is connected to the movie Velvet Goldmine, so their not the one.
"If you will by my lover,
I won't be anyone, but
if you can be my master
I will do anything.
There's no one left alive,
just a pair of glassy eyes.
Raise that feeling
one more time."
The other intelectual giant, who's music isn't in Velvet Goldmine might be the one.
"Taste the whip of love not given lightly,
taste the whip, now bleed for me...
I am tired, I am weary, I could sleep for a 1000 years
In my sleep a thousand dreams awake me,
differant colors made of tears"
Yes, it all should be played on public radio.
Posted by Stan on 06/12/03@09:09 PM CST ..::Link::..
I know as a fact...
...at one time we DID hear this person on public radio/community sponsored radio/college radio.
This is true. And I hope this does not mislead you.
You will not hear the music of this person on RockHitsZ107 or anything like that.
Posted by Ann on 06/12/03@08:50 PM CST ..::Link::..
On the radio?
Is this person part of any music we've heard on the radio? Especially Public Radio?

It's no big deal about the hair. I've heard that once a male reaches the age of 40 the battle of the baldness is mostly over. So, now that I'm in my 40's I don't have to worry about the recession of my hair line too much. I have what I have, for the most part for the remainder of my years. I'm very happy with my hair line, for the most part, and now it's just a question of how soon it all goes gray.
As for the musician, I have wondered (though it's hard to imagine this person in your dreams) if the mystery man is Tom Waits. "...never drive a car when you're dead..."
Posted by Stan on 06/12/03@08:39 PM CST ..::Link::..
I'm glad I'm not the only one...
I love this line: "Why do these geniuses (split their tongues)? To give themselves a more 'serpentine appearance,' says Time Magazine. OHHH ..... Okay, now I get it. Well, that's all right then. Whew! For a minute there, I thought maybe they were doing it for A COMPLETELY TRIVIAL REASON."

Didn't mean to mislead you last night, Stan. When you said hair on his head, I was thinking on the *top* of his head (it was getting late). Yes, he has hair on his head, but he probably doesn't have much left on the TOP of his head by now. Let's just say you have more hair than he does on the top of your respective heads, but he probably has more than Michael Stipe.
Do you REALLY want a clue? See, whatever I think of, it's either a dead giveaway or it might be a red herring that misleads you in a wrong direction.
What about if instead of aiming for specific bands, you do some generic elimination stuff first (The America vs. Britain thing was a good start)...age...race...musical genre (this might be hard)...geographical location...did we ever see him live...can one hear him on the radio...stuff like that.

DREAM: Several Species of Weird Dreams Gathered Together in an Art Gallery, Grooving with a Low Talker
I was in a room with a young woman and her two twin two-year olds (oh joy) and her Sheltie puppy. One of the two-year-olds was wearing a t-shirt that said something about teeth. I was paying attention to the Sheltie puppy. It was quite cute and like to be petted on its stomach. But all the time I was thinking I didn't like dogs with such narrow snouts.
Stan and I were at a restaurant and o
R}| <---Lucifer Sam typed this
ordered some food that we couldn't finish. For some reason, we had to come back to the restaurant for Breakfast, so I took a menu into a bathroom with me to read to see what we could order the following day. When I got back to the table, Stan had put some of the food in a take-out styrofoam box, but he also put some on the box top (which was separate from the rest of the box) so it was a big mess. I told him I wasn't going to carry it because it was too messy. Then I said something outloud IRL, "You know, it was nice and neat before and then you had to make a big mess" or something like that, waking myself up.
There was a young man who was putting up an art exhibit in one of the buildings down the street. He was about 20 or so and rather cute in a boylike way. I visited the make-shift gallery space as he was installing it, and was surprised to find one of my old paintings hanging in the back. Evidentally, in the dream (not in real life because this was all made up in the dream), I had exhibited there a while back, but the woman who ran the gallery was closing it and giving this young guy a chance for his BFA show. I told her that I'd like to come back another time to pick up my old painting. The painting wasn't a *real* painting of mine, but it sort of closely resembled a number of things I could've done from the early 80s to the early 90s, a long panel with gothic-ish figures....lots of faces. I remember one of them holding a candle. I saw the young man who was sitting with his girlfriend and taking a break from the installation. I asked him if he was a student at the UW and he responded, but he was a low talker...just like that Seinfeld woman. I asked him again and he repeated, again I didn't hear him. So I just said, "Aaahh," and walked away. Then Stan and I went in the back of the gallery to look at my old painting, and to our surprise we discovered even more of my old art...a lot of the work that I did with layers of gloss medium that I poured out on glass to dry, peeled up, and then applied like cloth over paintings.

Is this person from Brittan or a so called American?
Posted by Stan on 06/09/03@10:25 PM CST ..::Link::..
Actually, no, it's not. I was just trying to do my very bad Beavis & Butthead impression, but somehow I just couldn't convey it in this written, digital media.
Posted by Ann on 06/09/03@10:22 PM CST ..::Link::..
I'm not sure yet.
Do you or don't you mean it's the end of the world as we know it and I feel fine.
What do you mean by the possibility that there might be some hair left on the head?
Do I dump this band or look harder?
Stop trying to split hairs, and tell me if it's the end of the question as we know it and do we feel fine.

Wow, this journal page is just brimming with clues...
...if you only know where to look for them.
I bet Kurt did cover Sonic Middle Aged People...at least the "we're gonna kill the california girls" song...at least in his head. Unfortunately, it worked the other way.
Well, regarding your question. Heh...that's funny. Lemme think. Oh, I could think of a really funny clue right here, but it would be a dead giveaway.
Yes, he has *some* hair left, but only some. But we haven't seen a real recent image of him.
Posted by Ann on 06/09/03@10:15 PM CST ..::Link::..
That's great - good for them.
Most people don't really understand, but it sucks to be young. It's much better to be older and no longer have the mind clouded with ambitions like magots running through the rotting flesh of a corpse.
Well, does this guy have any hair left on his head or not?
Posted by Stan on 06/09/03@10:13 PM CST ..::Link::..

Nope. Not them either.

I'm not sure what you mean by ass...
Assassination? To answer your question, this person is not involved with post-Nirvana music. That doesn't discount that he hasn't necessarily been on an album that's been released after Nirvana's demise... Was that too many double negatives? Are you confused? Maybe you should get off the Nirvana thing. Maybe I misled you into the pines.
Posted by Ann on 06/09/03@10:03 PM CST ..::Link::..
After the ass.....I mean post Nirvana?
Um... is this person involved in the post Nirvana music that we know so little about anyway?

Speaking of Twin Peaks characters...

No, I can safely and confidently say, Nirvana never covered this person.

By the way, I loved your Freudian slip...
Forgetting the "W" at the end of "how" (ho) in the same context as Courtney Love. Heh. I heard she's hooked on Zantax or something now.
I want to name my new band Monkey Pox. If I only had a band. I'm sorta like the scarecrow in Wizard of Oz..."If I only had a band....do-doo-do-do-do-do."
We've already established this person is a "he" so I will stop referring to him in the generic plural as "they, their." Anal grammarians are cringing right now. But then again, what anal grammarians read this journal? Not many anal grammarians do searches on "girls having sex with dogs" and "courtney love plastic surgery disasters". Or maybe not. And of course we can't leave out Tim's favorite, "human toilet death." Not that I have any of that in this journal, but you know how Google is. (Well, maybe I do have courtney love plastic surgery disasters in this journal...that does seem like another era, doesn't it?)
Meat Puppets! No, as Bill would say, "It's not the Pups'".

Dead and seen again on the birthday of the U.S.A. - or some secret code from the 80s.
"Where do bad folks go when they die?
They don't go to heaven where the angles fly,
they go to the lake of fire and fry.
Won't see them again till the fourth of July.
People cry and people moan,
looking for someplace rest their bones,
trying to find something of their own
looking for somewhere to call their home"

A little bit of trivia you might not know...
Pat Smear (who joined in Nirvana in their later tours...he was present during the Unplugged show) was in the Germs! Anyway, by that deduction, the answer is, no it is not Kurt because he's related to The Germs!
But you are getting warmer...in a very strange, convoluted way. But only in a way.

Is there a band called SARS?
Ho old was this person when their wife took out a contract on their... I mean how old were they when they commited suicide?
Posted by Stan on 06/09/03@09:34 PM CST ..::Link::..
I think I'd also make a good Sarah Palmer.
And of course your favorite, The Log Lady. I can immitate Lucy (what was her last name? I hate it when I forget important information like that!) really well, but I don't think I'm her at all personality wise.
The Germs? WTF? Darby Crash & Co.? They were punk rock, or are you forgetting? (I said this person would not be classified as punk)
And we've listened to Pink Floyd a helluva lot in the past month, or are you forgetting that too? (You also asked if we've listened to them in the past month, to which I replied no.)
Posted by Ann on 06/09/03@09:31 PM CST ..::Link::..
The selections are narrowing.
It must have something to do either with Pink Floyd or the Germs.

The Aliens have landed...
...but not in the journal....just outside.
Nope, TMWFTE does not relate either.

From a dieing planet.
Does the Man Who Fell to Earth have anything to do with this?
Posted by Stan on 06/09/03@09:23 PM CST ..::Link::..
On your Bob-ness. Yes, that character is the most fitting ones of all the TP tests we took. I fail to understand the Donna Hayward one for you. I'm actually surprised I didn't get Laura Palmer, Nadine Hurley or Annie Jennings. I feel I can relate to those the most. Audrey Horne is pretty good too, although I'm hardly a spoiled rich girl. But there's something about the dynamics between her and her father that remind me a little of my own situation to an extent.
On to your question. No, Velvet Goldmine does not relate.
Posted by Ann on 06/09/03@09:21 PM CST ..::Link::..
Another question for the music person.
Would any of the music found in Velvet Goldmine be relevant?

Finally, I've been exposed!

DREAM: Fighting Women
Can't remember this dream too well; one part I was in an elevator with some guy, the other part of the dream I was looking out my back door and there were about three women fighting. One of them got out a gun and shot one, and started hitting the other one with a large rock. The woman who was hurt looked really mutilated and was crying. It was quite horrific. I don't know why I was watching it and not calling the cops or why I didn't feel threatened myself.

I will take that to mean if he were to be classified by the experts at Allmusic.com, would he be put in a punk rock category. I would guess not.
Posted by Ann on 06/08/03@09:58 PM CST ..::Link::..
One more Question.
Is this musician connected to, so called, punk rock?
Posted by Stan on 06/08/03@09:55 PM CST ..::Link::..
She's cool, a little nieve, but cool!
You are Donna Hayward.
Laura was your best friend, and her death broke
your heart and drove you straight into the arms
of Laura's boyfriend, James Hurley. Laura
wouldn't mind, right? She would have wanted it
that way, right? You sure hope so, but just in
case, you and James are going to help the
sheriff solve the case and put Laura's tortured
soul to rest.

You're a Seinfeld expert....you've probably watched

You are Newman. No one knows your first name. You
are an outsider to the normal. You live your
own life and go your own way. Nothing seems to
ever bother you.

Simetimes? Um...sometimes referred to as God? You know, there was one time that I thought only ONE musician was ever referred to as God, and that ONE was ENO (a little palindrome fun there). But now I'm finding out that practically everyone in the history of music has been called God. Kinda disappointing in a way. Except this person. I sincerely doubt they've ever been called God, or any other benevolent diety.
Posted by Ann on 06/08/03@09:21 PM CST ..::Link::..
Is this musician simetimes refered to as "God"?
Posted by Stan on 06/08/03@09:17 PM CST ..::Link::..
This must be good.
Posted by Stan on 06/08/03@09:15 PM CST ..::Link::..
Ewwwww James Hurley!
How on EARTH did you get James Hurley!?! There's nothing ewwwwier than James Hurley. Even my Newman Seinfeld character isn't as ewwwwy as James Hurley. Ewwwww...what the description says..."deep sincere eyes that draw women in....a good lover" Ewwwwww. What women are they talking about? Oh yeah, Laura and Donna.
Not this woman, that's for sure. James is a wuss. You're not a wuss, Stan. You're Gordon, remember? Heh. Oh, the irony.
BTW, why is there this big GAP of space above James's picture? Does that represent his vacuous mind?
Anyway, back to your question, yes they play other instruments as well.
Posted by Ann on 06/08/03@09:11 PM CST ..::Link::..
Have they played other things like keyboards, assorted synthasizer items or anything else I should know about?
Posted by Stan on 06/08/03@09:08 PM CST ..::Link::..
No... tell me it's not really me!
Posted by Stan on 06/08/03@09:04 PM CST ..::Link::..
If you don't finish your Seinfeld quizzes, you can't take any Twin Peaks!
How can you take your Twin Peaks quizzes if you haven't finished your Seinfelds?
Gordon, eh? Oh, the irony.
As for your musician person type question, are they a guitar player or a BASS player, um...I don't know. I think they can play both. I think they have played both. Actually, I think they might have played bass. I guess I could go check it out in our collection. But I might leave telltale signs of what I've fingered through. No, that wouldn't be a good idea.
Posted by Ann on 06/08/03@09:02 PM CST ..::Link::..
I love the log lady - yes she's the best! Why should I be taken in by troubled and sexy. The world is full a troubled and sexy young women and they're always on the hunt. A woman who's connected to the deeper creative mind - "I mean it like it sounds - I mean it like it is" - is a rare gem, and someone worth any amount of trouble that comes along with her in the package of a relationship. After all you're a woman who's connected to the deep creative mind.
As for the musician - are they a guitar player (not base guitar)?
Posted by Stan on 06/08/03@08:59 PM CST ..::Link::..
I think this is good.
Posted by Stan on 06/08/03@08:51 PM CST ..::Link::..
Oh thanks a lot.
Strange, quirky and wise, huh? Don't forget, I also turned out "Josie" on the girlfriend test I took on myself (that sounds weird)...Sexy, troubled, independent. Did you answer your test HONESTLY or did you plan it so that you'd get the log lady?
As far as your question...um...I guess he sings...or can sing. I know we've heard him sing. But that's probably not his primary focus...I think.
Posted by Ann on 06/08/03@08:48 PM CST ..::Link::..
Music person from your dream?
Is this musician a singer?

DREAM: Jerry Bill
Well, there were a bunch of strange dreams last night, but most were really stupid and hard to describe. This one, on the other hand, is beyond absurdity and I woke up laughing my head off from the absurdity (remember this morning, Stan? I wasn't laughing at the radio). So this will be another guessing game of sorts. Ready?
There was a TV that was up high...like they have at bars. I might have been at a bar...I can't remember. I turned on the TV but it was sort of like a computer monitor and surfing with a web browser too. I went to one program that was sort of a mid-afternoon talk show hosted by Roger Waters (oh, the absurdity) (I don't remember Roger in the dream...it was just his show). I was scrolling around on the TV looking at various menus and found a list of "soon to be released albums". It was like a calendar and it listed albums that were coming out this coming week. On Tuesday, someone was putting out an album, and I was shocked when I saw their name. I start yelling to Stan, as he was in the bar with me, to come quick. But something happened and I lost my place on the tv, and when I tried to scroll back to the position I was, I couldn't find it to show Stan. So I told him that he had to guess who was releasing an album. In the background our friend Bill was lurking, although it didn't look like Bill, it looked like Jerry Seinfeld (oh, the ridiculously absurd absurdity). I made Bill/Jerry guess too. Then his eyes get big and he starts pointing to me and he says "Oh, I know who you're thinking of!" (Picture Jerry Seinfeld doing this, not Bill, Stan.) and I say "You know who it is, don't you?" and I start cracking up in fits of laughter and wake myself up.
OK, Stan, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is, who was the person releasing an album this coming Tuesday in my dream?

Fish Water Dream
Ann, Tim, My Adopted Mother Lorene and I were on vacation together. Tim and I were trying to make tea in a motel lobby, but we were scooping water out of a fish acquarium to make our brew. Then we noticed a hot water dispensor next to the fish and decided to use that water instead of the fish water. My mom began to insist that we leave the area as soon as possible. She just wanted all of us to get in the van and drive north. I insisted on seeing a map. On the map the great lakes were upside down and we were already north of the lakes, which IRL would have been south. In the dream we began to drive north of the lakes, but we were still in the U.S. We stopped in another motel. While we were in the room I recieved a phone call about the fence on our property line. I was on our cell phone and could hear the caller, but the caller couldn't hear me. I would have gone outside so they could hear me too, but I didn't care and stayed in the room.
