A tit and a dream interlude

This is just to keep you entertained until the bog stories start washing over you.

Just before I woke up today, I had one of those rare dreams where you can smell. It was dark, wet and all I could see was the ground. It was covered in decomposing leaves. I could smell them. I felt dirt under my fingernails, and realised I was digging through the soil with my bare hands. There was music in the background somewhere far away.

I found a number of non-descript dead human limbs in the ground and started eating them. It felt relatively normal, not as if I was making some blasphemous transgression or anything. It all tasted like old leaves.

Just had to share that one with you.

Are you sure that you were not dreaming about a mediocre Tarkovsky film that you had recently seen?
Not that there is any other kind of Tarkovsky movie.

Sigh...

Never seen a Tarkovsky film, but it sure was a mediocre dream, apart from the unusual smelling/tasting part.

re: you can have the phone numbers of girls, but you have to come here first. How did you come across Martin's blog, by the way?

Tarkovsky keeps popping up in conversation these days. It's a sign. Ooo.

Yesterday, I had one of those dreams where you wake up, look around, realize that there are other people in the apartment. Your eyes are open, but you keep dreaming for a few minutes. Cr-ee-py.

Incidentally, get Mikkel to tell you about the dream he has with the Volkswagen and the skeleton, sometime. It's a doozy.

Why, thank you for telling everybody about my recurring nightmare.

I still don't understand how Adam knows Martin.

Sigh...

I know the volkswagen dream, it's very Danish. What were you dreaming after you'd opened your eyes?

That was when I dreamed about the other people in the apartment, which is why it was creepy.

Mikkel: c'mon, it's not like I gave away any of the salient details.

I don't remember how Adam came across my blog, but I used to see him every now and again, back in the day.

I stumbled across Martin's blog late at night sometime last summer and read all of the archives in one sitting whilst watching Fox News.
Now that I can't get free pornography I have to find some way to spend my time!

Sigh...

Adam, is your only connection to the internet through work, or school, where other people monitor porn surfing?

Fox news...you need to go for a weekend at Uncle Ho style re-education camp.

What were you thinking?

I am locked up at home at the moment I'm afraid.
I'm trying to find a job, but despite the fact that I have just graduated with a first class MA in Film Theory(incorporating my one day thesis effort) I cannot persuade my local newspaper to let me write film reviews without payment.
In addition to this, my local community college declined to interview me for a part time film lecturing position on the grounds that my MA in Film Theory is not relevant to teaching film to sub-undergraduate idiots! At this rate I am going to be forced into doing a PHd in Political Science that I have no desire to do in order to scrape together enough money to buy food and other essentials.
Does somebody want to explain to me what the hell is going on???

Incidentally, Fox News does have a remarkable brainwashing effect. No matter how liberal you are, if you watch it consistently for a period of months it causes a definite erosion of your righteous self-righteousness.

I REALLY need a girlfriend.
Good luck finding someone around here though.

Sigh...

PS. I may not be quirky and affected enough to fit in around here, but I feel that it is always worth having someone around that comes from a different perspective.

In terms of being quirky,you seem to fit in here just fine. It's all representations anyway, right?

I have been avoiding writing my thesis for a while now - mostly because I'm not convinced that it makes any sense at all, apart from maybe getting me a better paid job than working in a kindergarten and freelance lecturing.

My honest opinion is that university education isn't always the ticket to a well-paid job it once was, an that it isn't necessarily an intellectual pursuit to get an MA, or a PhD for that matter.

I've tried being cooped up at home, and it sucks. If you have an excellent MA, I'm sure you can get a job...maybe not one you want. Maybe you should consider moving town or country?

Fuck, I have a BA in something no one even has ever heard of here, but once in a while I find ways of convincing other people that they need to pay me to tell them things about communication and culture.

I really wish you had a girlfriend.

Sigh..

Incidentally, I refuse to watch Fox News for any amount of time.
