recurring bad dream [Dec. 1st, 2009|12:41 am]
Just me.

I had the weird circa 1993 bad dream about being a college radio Dj and having multiple "dead air" spells during my shift. The dream goes like this: I have a shift at short notice, but I get there without any time to pull Cds/Lps. As the DJ before me hands off the board, I have 2 Cds ready. both of them are 3 minute songs, and at the end of song 2, I have nothing ready. I'm in the record room when the song ends, and I manage to throw something on after 25 seconds of dead air.

this happens over and over again, to the point where I'm throwing on music I know nothing about to fill time so be able to go pull the music I want to play. the music is all lame.

I have had this dream at least twice in the last few months, even though I haven't been a DJ in over a decade.

I still sometimes have dreams about waking up a week before finals, not having gone to classes all semester.

Just repeat "play any song by the Fall..." as you drift off. As I recall, that was our general remedy for that situation.

I think the fact that you haven't been a DJ in over a decade is less a factor than it's the closest parallel your subconscious can muster to something that's going on in your conscious world.

Are the 2 CDs the same ones each time? How about the songs selected from them? If not, do you remember what the songs were this last time?

This just reminded me that I'm so freakin' glad that I'm no longer dreaming of the poodles at the job I took over from your Burning Man friend J.C.
