Sunday Night So me and two of my friends are going to see a movie. We have about 30 minutes before the movie starts so I decide to walk around outside. While walking I come across a thrift store. Never one to pass up a thrift store, I go inside to check out what they have.
This turns out to be the most awesomely laid out thrift store in the world as it reminds me of IKEA. Anyways, they have a pretty extensive vinyl collection which I thought was great and it included a lot of soundtracks, but the only one I remember was The Terminator. They also had some electronics and I stopped in my tracks when I saw an SNES. I took it out and the owner came over to talk with me about.
I was a Genesis kid
I asked him if he had a power cable (there were no controllers) and he said probably so. The bulk of the dream was spent with me searching through boxes for power adapters and seeing if they fit. The only odd thing about the dream was that every time I time I turned around to test a cable, it seemed like two 1″ termites had crawled out of the system. Near the end, we found one that worked and we got a game to load up but I remember being worried about the price because I asked him for a total and he said he had to check eBay before he could give me a total. I actually think that the worrying is what woke me up from the dream.
Monday Night My old friend from high school, we’ll call him Adat to keep thing anonymous, was visiting me.
<real life> Adat used to draw these weird pornish cartoon pictures back in high school and make these odd sound effects. At the time, I didn’t understand what it was but about oh… 8 years later I realized he was drawing fan service from manga and anime.</real life>
Incidental or purposeful stuff like this is "fan service"
Because of this, I’ve always wanted to reconnect with him and 1) see if he still watches anime (he was deep into it like 4 years before I was) and 2) prove my otaku-ness (and that I’ve caught up to his otaku-ness by putting him onto a good anime.
So, I was browsing Hulu and I saw that Panty & Stocking episode #1 was up. Lol, the rest of the dream was a real time rewatch of episode 1, except it was dubbed. There were a couple of voices that I was familiar with but I can’t point them out now. I remember that Panty and Stocking sounded like dingy, white, valley girls, which I thought was a good choice. One thing that did bug the hell out of me was that they re-recorded the transformation song and completely changed it to something that didn’t fit (although it had a funky ass bass line that reminded me of Mellow Mellow, Right On by Lowrell).
Also, for some reason the episode stopped before they actually transformed. This started an Inception like sequence of events where I began to notice the oddness of the dream, such as
- Wtf would they change the song
- Hulu does not host partial episodes of shows
- The series isn’t supposed to come out in the US until 2012
These realizations led to me waking up and dream ending.
Mundane stuff like this is what happens when I goto bed. Most of the times, I simply don’t have dreams, every once in a while I’ll have a working man’s nightmare like losing the rent money pr getting fired and having to move back in with my parents, and other times my nerdy side gets to show out and have super fun with stuff like this.
