Making sentences is hard.
Dreamed last night that I was playing keyboards in a band. We sang a couple of really weird and dull songs (that I didn't know) while on stage at The Crystal Ballroom. (For those of you not in the Portland area or who have never been to The Crystal, it's a decent sized venue with a VERY springy floor, on the... third floor? where the stage and crowd area is. I saw Guster/Nada Surf and The Kooks/The Whigs there. When the crowd starts moving around at all, the floor turns into a mini trampoline because of it, which is alarming to some people.) and then I came out from behind the keyboard and ROCKED this song with every fiber of my being:
The stage was the springy part, though, and I flew and flopped all over the place and the crowd went wild! I was pleased to see the lead singer from Guster in the crowd, he was the most enthusiastic! Unfortunately, after that song, I couldn't remember words or parts to any other songs, so I got down and roamed around. There was a tall, lanky red head guy that I thought I heard call my name. Looking at him, I thought his name was Ben. He waved me over and asked if I knew who he was. He said that he used to hang out on some message boards somewhere a long time ago, but totally remembered me. I asked who he was, and he said "Does the name Jason SLAAAAAMMIN' mean anything to you?" I acted excited and remembered him, but his demeanor made me nervous. At first glance, he looked like he was 18, but looking closer, you could see that he was a sad man in his 30s trying desperately to recapture his youth. I joked that he made me feel short, (which rarely happens for me and my 5'7"ish frame) and went to take off. I rounded the corner and came across two men talking about the latest EverQuest expansion pack and how they couldn't decide to play that or WoW. I started giving them the reasons why I would play WoW - hell, it's been out how many years and is only coming out with its second expansion pack, instead of two a year at $30 each? ;) I knew that I should be helping the band break down, but I couldn't find them anywhere leading up to this conversation, so I kept talking about the pros of WoW vs. EQ.
I woke up with a feeling that I DID, in fact, remember Jason Slammin'. I .. do not.
