All Sorts Of Dreams

Current mood: silky

i want things to appear as i think them. can we make a machine like that? i mean, do i really need to do data entry for random tracks in iTunes. can’t i just say it and have it done? my favorite technology is language. and i know espresso machines and Volkswagen engines and personal computers pretty well. when can i speak to my computer!?!?!? i dreamt that i reunited long-sundered relatives. they all assembled to watch a movie. as everyone came to their seats they were delightfully surprised by who they found next to them. there were exclamations of surprise. there were hugs and kisses, pats on the shoulders. all the other people in the movie theater looked on with smiles. blood from Jordan. blood from jail. blood from old folks homes. blood from divorces. blood from childhood. like a catholic mass during “peace be with you” handshakes, everyone was turning 360 degrees, hugging and kissing everyone around them, with the silver screen flickering in the background twilight.
