Carl Jung & Fangoria Clash

Who is to say what dreams are made of? Mel Torme suggested polka dots and moonbeams. Wes Craven suggested Freddy Kruger. William Dement said that dreams allowed us all to be quietly and safely insane every night of our lives.

"Recall the old story of the rather refined young man who preferred sex dreams to visiting brothels because he met a much nicer type of girl that way," suggested Vivian Mercer. Perhaps her dreams turned out that way too.

Carl Jung thought that dreams made for good art and I happen to agree. I've been reading a fair amount of Jung's Programme Notes by Miles McClagan and it has made me reconsider my dreams. As a kid I remember dreaming often and to some great depth, but as an adult I seldom do and only the ones I have right before waking tend to stick with me, but I know what my dreams are.

My dreams are simply my unconscious mind creating some macabre Tex Avery cartoon out of the remnants of my day such as this, but the other kind of dreams aren't lost on me.

I know what it means to long for something. To want something so bad you can almost taste it. That is why I give you this photo:

  3. I could do a whole other blog just on my dreams. They are pretty vivid, with quite acrid and bitter twists...
