Speaking of dream journals, I transcribed mine recently and ran it through Wordle to make a word cloud. The most common words appear largest. For anyone who keeps a digital journal or transcribes theirs, it would be awesome to see yours in this way.

I just slept for 13 straight hours.

Dreams were not really there.

I once dreamt that the moon was red.

Another one, I was going around Derby city on motorised roller-skates for no real reason. Also, the usually decent roads had turned into a more complicated version of Spaghetti Junction.

... My dreams are odd.

I had a dream where the sun challenged me to a match of thumb wrestling. I won.

I once had a dream that a bunch of lasers hit the moon and knocked it out of orbit. For rather obvious reasons I panicked I ran around trying to get to a safe area, (even though there was no such thing) at the end of the dream the moon was back where it should be.

I also once had a dream that I ran around ripping people apart. heh, after I woke up I was pretty out of it for awhile.

I had a weird one... I was in a world were there just me, two other guys, and a signpost.
I was very weird in this dream too

Buddy1 got hit with a high power pulse from the signpost, and i began radioing him.
Me: "Did you miss me?"
Buddy" "Wha th...I'm dead!"
me: "I know You DEAD!"

And I awoke.

I love this thread man. Top quality. I recommend everyone who posts here to keep their own dream journal though. It can be a useful thing.

If they did, then would you have had to say "Well done, Sun."?

Either way, I don't think anybody would be able to hear you over the sound of your being vaporized.

I've been having some weird ass dreams over the past few months. Recurring dream, almost. I'm almost always in a public computer lab, browsing the inter webs or playing a game, when something disturbs me and i suddenly decide to start browsing for porn. There are always people behind me complaining or laughing at me but never interfering, and I always ignore them and continue anyway. These aren't lucid dreams, I have no control over anything. I'm just sitting there being laughed at by strangers for looking up weird porn. Its driving me nuts. These dreams don't make any goddamn sense. Why am I even having dreams like this!?

I had yet another strange dream wherein I did something I would not do normally. Though like the previous one, this was not pseudo-religious. In this one, I pirated a film, specifically, Les Misérables. As I was watching it, I could not help but notice some significant deviations from the novel and the stage adaption.

Now firstly, Jean Valjean was a lot more sinister in this one, I mean, he still carried out all the acts of kindness he performed in the source material, but he also occasionally indulged in localized omnicide using a seemingly endless supply of plastic explosives and monomolecular wire. Being perpetually cloaked in darkness and out of focus didn't really help either.

Inspector Javert had two voices, one male and one female which spoke in unison and continuously fluctuated in pitch, also, it seemed to be in the opinion that all criminals should be summarily executed in the same manner as Jack the Ripper's murder victims. It carried a set of weighted throwing knives and wore a featureless mask that lacked eyeholes, one half was darker than black, the other paler than white.

The Thénardiers was replaced by someone perpetually attired in full plate armor and who wielded a longsword. In spite of that, she was significantly more kind-hearted than the people she replaced. Unfortunately for everyone else, this manifested as a willingness to forcibly euthanize anyone afflicted by any inconvenience no matter how minor whilst maintaining a jubilant tone above their screams.

Turns out the three faceless weirdos are actually physical manifestations of eldritch gods and somehow in spite of that, the plot still adhered to the source material without too many deviations (Fantine's financial troubles were due to her illness occurring earlier rather than being swindled and she dies in the crossfire between Valjean and Javert instead of shock, also a large chunk of people in the background get killed off by the three entities) at least, until around the portion where One Day More is sung.

Firstly Valjean sings his lines in a more sarcastic, sinister tone while he rigs a few buildings with tripwire and explosives, which later on, end up killing quite a few innocent civilians when they explode and collapse, plus since they toppled over in the far-from--controlled demolition, they kicked up enough debris for Valjean to covertly garrote several more innocent bystanders in commotion. Javert never gets captured since he stabbed everyone who tried to assail it; granted, Enjolras does manage to rip its mask off, but as it turned out, Javert doesn't have a face, the only thing behind the mask was a levitating knife that promptly embedded itself in Enjolras' head. Oh and the entity that displaced the Thénardiers along with their sizable role in the story ends up running around killing soldiers and rebels, at least, until Valjean's explosives go off, when that happens, she decides to euthanize every single person in sight which ends up reducing Paris' population by quite a large margin to say the least.

Oh and during this massacre, Cossette and Marius were apparently too busy lovey dovey to notice that half the city was getting brutally murdered. Hell, people were getting murdered literally right next to them and bleeding all over the pair yet they still didn't notice for some unexplained reason. So by the end of the film, everyone who isn't a main character got murdered (so basically, 50% of the people who appeared onscreen for more than one second ended up dead), Paris was in ruins from the crossfire and the eldritch horrors that were responsible for it all were perfectly fine.

That sounds awesome. Creepy, but goddamn awesome. I would pirate or buy that movie.

I dreamed I had a job. There was a ball crawl the size of a lake, and I was supposed to patrol it in a hovercraft and pull people out if they started "drowning." I had a uniform and everything.
