Jeremy's Dream Blog

When I remember them, I try to write down my dreams. Largely inspired by Dunne, it's also fun to do.

Was in some weird store that sold video games (?) and bought an Adventure II cartridge for the Atari 2600. Apparently it was a rare, special release from some company. Was listed at $18 on the stick, but rang up as $20, plus tax it was $22.

Went into a museum or big books store or something, and got a pitch from a book of a month club guy. Which basically went along the lines of them selling books that were no longer in print through regular channels, and hard to find in used book stores. Ramsey Campbell was one author, so were some in the As and Cs but he's the only one I can remember. Also some art on sale.

Remembering my experiences in college with the Sci Fi book club, I left without joining. At this time, I also noted that I was carrying a pistol inside my jacket (My leather one)? And I got nervous until I got into my car. The car had my parents. At least, in the dream they were my parents, but I think it was Andy Griffith and some lady (I think from an epsidoe of Hawaii 5-o where he played the head of a family of petty criminals). Although then again, I didn't trust Andy. As we were leaving, I took the gun out and stuck in down under the seat. Then we saw a unmarked police car go by with its sirens, giving a brief scare, but it went by.

There were 2 other earlier dreams I remembered when I woke up, but then forgot them before I got out of bed.

Silver Bullets. Had a dream about silver bullets. Could only find 3. Can't remember the rest, except I think they were .22 Magnum for my old Colt revolver

Has a dream about Shadowrun, of all things.

Was sort of like a movie or documentary at first, this woman and me? (or was it me, a guy anyway, and a famous runner. Fastjack? Hatchetman?) were being blackmailed or something. Or just the guy.

Anyway, they were both shadowrunners. They were on a run in 2056 when something or other happened. Killed someone?

The woman was nice looking. Black, atlheteic. Had unique cyberware, because apparently she had some limb replacements?

I think she killed her future husband in an arranged marriage by a corporation, because the guy was a jerk.

ANyway, at the end of the live bit, me or the guy (I'm not sure which), said something like "Why would I tell you where to find her, I would never betray someone" (or something like that and I think a bit about honor)

Anyway, after the live action bit ended, it was like I was reading a sourcebook on the whole thing. THere were fiction bits at the back, background synopsis, even rules for the cyberware (illustrated).

Possibly inspired by the picture of Cleopatra from Civilization Revolutions? And my hacking (heh) my PSP? Still weird, I haven't been in Shadowrun in probably 12 years. Got out when 3rd edition came out, and they are on 4th now.

Night before, was interviewing someone about a job, then about half into it, was interviewing a guy for a DJing job. This guy was memorable though, funny, and nice. He was a little on the smallish size, black, short-ish hair. He mentioned Armin Van Burren (I guess as favorite other DJs) which won me over.
