Season 2 had some okay individual episodes but it was a real mess in the big picture. Season 3 sounds like a loving disaster.

Rerelease Gremlins 2, but replace the Hulk Hogan scene with Jon Moxley.

Me too. I'm on a dose that most doctors find, quote, troubling. But even combined with the other meds I'm on, which are also supposed to make you feel faint, I don't experience that side-effect at all. Even when drinking.

I still have nightmares all night every night, but in the bad old days I was only getting a couple of hours of sleep (nonconsecutive) spread out over about ten hours in bed, and now I can actually get up to like six or seven nonconsecutive hours and can, often, fall asleep after I wake up from the nightmares.

poo poo was life-changing and cut my alcohol use from straight-up abusing the stuff to fall asleep down to a more normal level.

this glorious monument



I was having a string of bad dreams a few weeks ago that made me not want to sleep. Except I couldn't put my finger on what was bad about them. They felt less 'bad' and more 'exhausting'.
Then I realized that it was probably due to my increased dose of requip. I was suffering side-effects that made me feel lovely And since I took it before bed I was blaming my lovely feelings on the dreams. So I detoxxed off of it and have felt pretty drat good ever sense. And I will continue to feel good until the restless legs syndrome it was treating comes back but it's been 2 1/2 weeks so here's hoping. This doesn't have much to do with everybody else's dreams though so sorry.

my dreams that I can remember these days generally involve beautiful and fantastical landscapes full of wonders that I want to run off and explore

but I canít, b/c itís always my last day there and thereís always a giant mess I donít remember making which Iím still obligated to clean up before we go back home, so I can go have fun or I can go and be a responsible goddamn adult for a change instead of a lazy womanchild

I always end up being an adult, sorting garbage piles that never really diminish, and wake up with a dull ache in my chest and a crummy mood onboard

and that, friends, is what waking and baking is for

Since we're talking about dreams. I usually have really fantastical ones where I'm just a character or the camera.

But for the last couple of weeks I've been having these reoccurring vivid dreams with a woman I've never met, raising a child I've never had, and there's been a consistent timeline. It's all been very real and warm and very confusing when I wake up.

I don't like it. Bring back the Hydra god talking to me. That I could roll with.

Well poo poo. Then what are some good shows to be watching? Mandalorian I'm already watching and I'm not super into it despite liking the premise and every about Pedro Pascal & Jon Favreau.

The Boys Season 2 won't be out by then obviously. Jack Ryan S2 was not super fun compared to S1 so that was a let down and I really liked Clear And Present Danger so the setting/bad guy tropes weren't the issue for me.

His Dark Materials is very good. No idea what services it's on outside of the UK.

I had a dream about getting hit by a car and bleeding out while the people passing by kept saying "no diggity"

More recently I had a dream where during an argument one person accused the other of "You"ll let any monster into the house, teach it to button a shirt and then use it to save the world". I wonder if it's a quote from something but mangled in dream form. Dreams are weird.

A recurring dream I have is one where I'm out somewhere and want to go home but I'm nowhere near where I live.... but then I remember about my OTHER house/apartment/place that I just forgot that I have. And I go there and the whole place is just there and it's where I live and I'm like,"Man how could I forget about this place!?! I'm such a goof! " and then when I wake up I have like 5-10 seconds where I'm still convinced that I have the other place before I remember I just made it up entirely.

Talk to your doc/psych if you can. This is a problem that can usually be solved with medication these days.

Same. Most if not all of my dreams are PTSD these days; like someone's holding me down and stabbing me, or I'm bleeding from something and can't make it stop, the worst are my jaw hanging off again but all I can do is work it from one side while it grinds in my ears. God bless mighty prazosin for taking the wind out of the sails on all these tho.

Here's a kind of related, occasionally reoccurring dream. One day I realize that there's always been a door in my apartment that I've never opened before and it leads to a secret world. Or I'm taking the subway and accidentally go past the terminus, and it leads to somewhere unexpected - in some dreams it's been a new part of Helsinki I've never heard of, sometimes a city in a different country and sometimes an entirely new, perhaps fantastical place.

I kind of love those dreams, honestly. They remind me of stuff like Spirited Away - where different worlds and places and secrets are hidden juuust outside of our sight. You see a glimpse of something in the corner of your eye, turn to look but there's nothing out of the ordinary there. But in those dreams and stories those glimpses are the other world bleeding through into our reality.

Maybe my favorite movie scene of all time is the train scene in Spirited Away. I'm sure you could interpret the scene in endless ways, especially since the film so deliberately explains precisely none of it, but one of my ideas about is that the train exists in a place between the human and the spirit world. It is real in both, and the shadows you see are people lost in their thoughts while travelling, the spirits and maybe the memories of the dead (seeing as a big theme in the film is forgetting - Chihiro forgetting her name and her parents, people forgetting about amusement parks and what they stood for, people forgetting the spirits and the spirit world). I dunno, I haven't really fleshed out that thought that much. Why did the train use to go both ways but doesn't anymore? What is the endless shallow sea it seems to go through? Etc. Etc. In any case it's incredibly beautiful and just about makes me cry every time I see it and I don't even know why, and it (and Spirited Away + of course other stories too) remind me of those dreams.

Incredibly. I remember going "hey, DeNiro, Lewis, Scorsese, this is going to be amazing!" And it was, but man, by the end I felt like I had been put through the loving ringer.

Same with Saturday Night Fever, which is legit a great movie, but it is NOT a dance movie/musical at ALL. I had only heard the soundtrack when my roommate and I watched it a few years ago. He said the look of confusion and growing horror on my face was almost as good at the movie itself.

I wrote a pretty crappy but probably passable didactics of physics and chemistry exam and am now watching a D-tier Ghibli film (Ocean Waves) and eating discount cold cuts because I don't feel like cooking lunch. One more final on Wednesday and then I'll be halfway through these studies. In half a year I'll have the qualifications I want and need. Looking forward to not being insanely broke 100% of the time

Hope your Monday is going well whether you're just getting up, going to bed or, like me, are doing or have done whatever it is you're supposed to do today.

Every Ghibli movie ranking listicle I've seen either ranks Ocean Waves near the bottom or doesn't include it at all (since it's a TV film) but I found it a perfectly solid 70-min slice of student life. Nowhere near as bad as Tales from Earthsea but also nowhere near the top of the Ghibli films. Don't regret watching it.
