My sleeping pattern has been very odd lately. I cannot sleep in, and I usually wake up at 6AM-7AM and then every 15 minutes after. last night I had a very very weird dream. Here is what I can remember. Interpretations in Red

Somehow, we were in Los Angeles and lost. I don’t exactly recall who I was with. I think I was with some celebrity though. Anyway, first we were driving around lost. I turned down this road and took a left at a stop sign into a warehouse. When I pulled into the warehouse I saw Edward Barbanell from the movie The Ringer with Johnny Knoxville. (I saw him and Johnny on Fantasy Factory, and I thought He was a very nice funny guy. He was a very positive person, which I always respect and admire).

So, I looked to my Right and saw Edward. He pulled a lever, and it started my car on a rollercoaster in the warehouse. It was totally weird and random, but I have actually had that dream before(Or at least I feel like I have). Anyway, we ended back where we started and left the warehouse backwards.

Something happened and we found ourselves walking in a crappy part of LA. We saw the Stallionares Chance and Real drive by (I had seen the preview fora Real Chance of Love 2 that day I think). Then we walked by this old Caddilac, it was like maroonish/brown. It was some crack head muttering some shit at us and we just kept walking. We walked under this bridge which was a mistake as the Crackhead and a bunch of his friends jumped out to rob us. Somehow Chance and Real were in this shitstorm as well. I was standing on the slanting part of the the bridge like there is If you take Sanjon Road up towards Thompson in Ventura. Under the Bridgeand Train Tracks it’s slanted. I was standing on that, and there was this bald asian crackhead.

This guy was nuts. He was jumping around and shit and he pulled out a blade. He like Screamed something, and if I saw it in person, I would probably laugh my ass off. But he was quick! And he went around and began stabbing EVERYONE in the shoulderblade. But not like deep. He would stab them with like an inch of the blad and yell as he did it. But he stabbed like 8 people.

It was such a weird visual. The dream itself was rather startling but looking back on that part I laugh. It just is a funny visual. I woke up shortly after and then was stuck dreaming about fighting crackheads the rest of the morning before finally getting up for work.

I think I had 1 or 2 other dreams as well but they have been forgotten as most of my dreams are.

Sorry for lack of updates here. Truth is, I don’t live a particularly exciting life that warrants many updates here :) . Anyway, let’s see whats up. I recently bought The Wolf by Andrew W.K. It’s pretty good. It’s nice to complete the collection(albeit out of order). I think my favorite song on the Album is I Love Music.

Work has been pretty busy. I had a review which went well. Nice to hear they think I’m doing a good job. It has been pretty slow which is actually very good for us as we have a lot of projects that need to be finished up very soon which has lead to me doing a lot of Modeling. Whatever makes me a more well rounded individual I suppose, right?

I’ve been doing some bike riding which is nice. Actually, this week is the first week I have yet to go riding which is a damn shame. Perhaps I will tomorrow after church. I’ve mostly been riding in Carpinteria at a place called Thunderbowl I believe. It’s been fun. The last time was a lot of fun because we found a nice little run that lets me go down some hills and get some air which is fun(until I eat shit I’m sure).

Last weekend I picked up an interesting book at Michael’s Art store. I don’t know why I go there as It usually never has any painting things I want. But I was perusing the book section which allowed me to stumble upon “Keys to drawing with Imagination” by Bert Dodson. I have read his other book “Keys to Drawing” back in High School. This book is a very cool book. It has a lot of interesting ideas to making things more interesting. The very beginning of this book is pretty kickass. It lead me to create this:

It’s lead to a lot of nifty doodles with these patterns that I will probably try to incorporate into some paintings in the near future I think. Speaking of Paintings, I have been slowly chugging away at the painting of Kelly. Adding a Door, some Moulding on the Walls(which will probably get redone, and the foundation for some carpet. The carpet will be intereting and probably pretty difficult to get done. Not sure yet how I’m going to do it. But here’s where I’m at with it.

Tomorrow is the due date for my final AM assignment for Class 2. I’m not sure how satisfied I am with it. To be quite honest, I picked a dull idea and tried to make it look good. All that comes to mind is the old saying “You can’t polish a turd”. I think it’s ok, but I’m not into it at all because it just seems so…boring. Next week I’ll try to post the whole class’ assignments as I’m supposed to do that next week.

I saw Up in 3D today. You know what? It was pretty damn good. Very touching and sad at some parts, the gags were good. The 3D was BITCHIN. I haven’t been to a 3D Movie before(not to my recollection) and I thought that Pixar did a good job of not overdoing the 3D effects which yeah can be cool, but like…a lot of movies are made to be 3D, so they do stupid gimmicky things you know? Up was subtle and doing it that way I think it actually enhanced the look of the movie. So good job.

That’s about all I can think of. It’s past midnight and I feels like it was just 8PM. The night is gone. Crap. Oh well. Just gotta try to seize tomorrow.

Another dream I had, it is funnier, much less fucked up than the last one, I promise. Unfortunately, I didn’t write it down so here I go trying to remember as much of it as I can.

From what I remember I was hanging out with my co-workers Kai and Amanda. We were down at what looked similar to like Venice Beach, but it was a lot like the Ventura Coast. Anyway, we went to some restaurant, and I wasn’t wearing a shirt for who knows why, but I was wearing Pants. That’s the weirder part since I normally only wear shorts, although maybe in the dream they were shorts, I dunno. Anyway, so we were at some little restaurant that looked exactly like the one from the last dream, except you entered from the other end…and it was sunnier inside of it.

So we’re just eating and stuff, and somehow a Baseball bat came into play. I don’t remember why, but Kai and Amanda got up to do something and so I hid the bat underneath my right side. They came back asking for the bat, but couldn’t find it. Eventually we left.

So we’re walking along the beach and I remember “Oh shit I forgot the Bat!”(I think I went back for the bat. I know I went back for something) So I go running like that bat was illegal or something. I get back to the diner just as this female cop on a segway scooter pulls in. I’m like shit.  I manage to sneak in and out with the bat with no problems whatsoever and head back down the path where Kai and Amanda were.

Now, something happened, where I found myself in this dark maze type thing. I fell into a big pool, like an underwater lair…but it was filled with water. So I’m swimming through this thing, and there are these underwater gun turrets that are shooting at me. I manage to swim past all 12 or so of them on a single breath of water. Actually, I remember trying to go to this spot where I THOUGHT there’d be air, but their wasn’t and suddenly it didn’t bother me so I was fine.

So I get out of the water, and I’m in a dark maze. and I find my way around where I have to climb the walls all ninja warrior style(the 2nd or 4th level where you gott have your hands and feet on both sides of the wall and climbing up and over. Eventually I get to the end, I see some light, and I flip on the lightswitch before needing to leap over like some crocodiles or something. I find this line of kids cheering and running through the once dark and dangerous maze. One kid thanked me. Turns out, it was a bathroom. It was an epic maze through the bathroom, and none of the kids could manage to make it through there alive and turn on the switch. So I was like a hero to them. Now it’s weird because Kai and Amanda were at this exit and were like “That was cool”. And I remember thinking “Aw, it’s nothing, I’ve done something like that back home.” And I remember trying to think of a place where I did that. Like it seemed like I was no longer dreaming, but now, thinking hard trying to remember where I had done something like that before(still don’t know).

Anyway I came out and Kai and Amanda were like, guess who we met, and it was Reese Witherspoon. I assume this is because I saw Walk the Line last weekend, which I fell in love with her in. I wanted to marry her after that movie lol. That’s only happened one other time in a Movie, Zooey Deschanel in Yes Man. Anywho, She thought it was cool helping out those kids, and again  Iwas like Oh’ I’ve don’e something like that before. Now, I remember being wet still, shirtless and in dark pants. But I remember thinking, Damn I look good. It has hit me who’s body I kind of resembled. Something like this. So, I mean, come on I looked good right? I remember suddenly feeling very tall. And I took the picture, and chit chatted, and then BAM! My alarm woke me up.

So weird lol. More AM stuff probably to come tomorrow or Saturday.
