"I had this crazy dream last night! I was-"
"Ugh, shut up. Nobody cares about your stupid dream."
"But - but dreams are the cornerstone of Freudian psychoanalysis! They frequently play an important thematic role in works of literature-"
"This isn't a work of literature, and I doubt that it meant anything at all."
"Don't you think dreams are fascinating? They're still largely unexplained by medical science and-"
"No. Ever wondered why so many student films are dream sequences? Because dreams are student films: they don't make sense and everyone sleeps through them."
"Can I please just tell you about this dream?"
"I really don't care at all."
"So, I was riding towards this tall tower, on the back of a unicorn. There was a flagpole on top of the tower, and the flag was covered in arrows. All around the tower were guards wearing big helmets, holding these swords up in front of them-"
"I dreamed I was repeatedly smashing my head into a brick wall."
"Don't interrupt! ... Where are you going?"
Am I dreaming, or is this de ja vu?
Ever since I went to the live show On the Road in DC, I haven't been able to stop thinking of loops! I imagine random things in loops now on a daily basis. Anyway, this got me thinking about dream sequences and de ja vu, and how they are some of the biggest loops we encounter. I know dreams are a pretty big topic around here, but I want to put them in the context of loops.
Do you ever have repetitive dreams? Maybe some that you've had since you were little?
Or maybe you frequently get that feeling of De Ja Vu? These are loops in themselves. I know I feel like I get De Ja Vu at least 3 or 4 times a month! De Ja Vu could also be something you dreamt of previously and it came true.
I find it really interesting when I hear of different repetitive dreams that people have. It makes me curious as to why it's specifically that one.
I would love to see stories, illustrations, music, and films for this collaboration! Contribute what you already have or make something new!
ILLUSTRATORS: draw your dreams or moments of de ja vu that you can remember.
WRITERS: write a tiny story about a dream or de ja vu, or create a dialog/story.
MUSICIANS: make a song that reminds you of these moments or dreams.
VIDEO EDITORS: combine footage or photos from hitRECord, or film your own version of a dream you've continuously had. maybe act out an awkward time you've had de ja vu :)
There are already some fantastic records made that would go with this. I'll try to post some records that I think fit this collab.
Can't wait to see what you guys contribute! Now let's RECord!
