Art Gallery Dream with Bill and Candy

I dreamt Stan and I were with Bill in some art gallery that he was partially in charge of. It was a very colorful dream. I was trying to find more of my art there, but couldn’t. Stan actually had more pieces showing than me, which made me a bit jealous.

Also, and this part is very strange, while I was dreaming this IRL I had the radio on in the background and the Joy Cardin show was discussing “classic candy” like Boston Baked Beans and Good ‘N Plenty, etc…you know, the kind we used to get at movie theatres? I’m not making this up, they really were discussing this. (I don’t know what they currently offer at movie theatres.) Well, this transformed in the dream to a surreal banquet of candy layed out like art opening food, but instead of crackers and cheese and assorted crudities, it was candy. All candy. All sugar. I tried a few things, and they were very artfully done, but it was weird.

I also remember taking some political posters I had designed (like the ones I used for the protests in 2011) home with me. As we were leaving, it was windy, and one of the posters blew away, up into the sky, never to return.

I’m sure this is symbolic for something, considering the High Park Fire, however I haven’t figured that out yet.

I also dreamt that Stan couldn’t find Apollo in the house. I looked under the bed with a flashlight and didn’t see his eyes glowing back. Stan then left the house and went to look outside. It was quite scary.

A (New) Blog Apart (App-art)

It was a slow day, so I decided to set up a new blog that’s been in the back of my mind for over a month now. It features the creations that I’ve been making on the iPad. I obviously thought of having it as part of this blog, but I am getting low on space, and this app blog will be very image-intensive. I’m mad at Blogger. I’m not going back there. WordPress.com, where Leon has his blog, seems to offer a pretty good amount of space, so I added it there. Unfortunately, I can’t add my own theme so I had to use a 3rd party theme and customize it with my background and header. I really like the customizability of a self-hosted blog, but what can I do? I don’t want to pay for more space.

There’s nothing there yet except for 3 posts, but hey, it’s new:

Weird Dream with a Couple Losties

I dreamt I was in a building that was a hybrid of a department store and my old high school. I was trying to find a staircase on the first floor, when a construction worker put a stepladder down in the middle of the aisle, blocking the way. Behind him was a man who looked familiar. He wasn’t wearing anything except a towel around his waist, like he’d just gotten out of the shower. I then realized who it was, Jack Shephard from LOST! 😆 He recognized me (this is getting surreal) and was glad to see me, and put his hands out to hug me. I felt quite awkward hugging a virtually naked man (except for the towel) that I didn’t even know but I went along with it, hey, why not, right? He asked me how I was.
