dream fragment


And I wish I'd written it down--I remember waking up and casting about for a pen so I could write it on my arm, and then remembering that I was still wearing the sound-recording watch that Lisa gave me a while back, but that I have to talk very loudly into it to get it to record, and I didn't want to wake her up, since she'd come home at 7 or so with some kind of bug and gone straight to sleep. All I remember was that it was based around a song: four chords that didn't quite go together, in pretty much the same way that the chords in 3Ds songs always seem a little off. There were four words that repeated in sequence too, one of which was "monkey." In the dream, I'd been describing it to Lisa as I played a nonexistent Vainio Väisänen Vega 12", and she left the room right before the end of the record--and after the song proper ended, just as it hit the runout groove, Alan Vega sang that four-word phrase, unexpectedly. In the dream, I took this as some kind of important portent.
