wild dreams and more!!!
« on: January 11, 2019, 09:14:37 AM »

I looked up "dreams" in the different sections of this board but it appears that the use of dreams is always in connection with "hopes" and future "plans".  In a his thread I would like to talk about real life sleeping dreams.  When I woke up this morning I had a pretty good one!!!

I was at some out of town event and trying to explain to someone about people I know.  In the course of the conversation we got talking about air travel and space travel.  I pointed out that I know a guy who has been working on going to the moon. He has been making calculations and has been building his own rocket.  It has been something he has worked on for years and knows it will take many many more years but he doesn't seem to mind and keeps at it.  His name is Jorge Alcoz.  As we talked some more I eventually pointed out that I also knew one guy who had already been to the moon.  He is into some of that stuff and likes to travel.  His name is Jon Gates.

This is a weird coincidence. Although I'm aware that I have dreams every night, I don't generally pay attention to them when I wake up and very seldom are they about tops. But just today I woke up in the middle of a long an elaborate dream related to tops. It was about Cyril's collection. Although he lives in a large house, in my dream it was a much larger old castle. The collection was below the ground level, instead of the second floor. There were many visitors exploring the castle, which had many surprises, although the whole thing doesn't make sense (dream logic). I guess it was prompted by Lassanske's collection video and my recent visit to El Castillo de Piria. But perhaps also it's due to guilt as a new Marines festival is coming up and I never posted a video from my visit to Cyril a year ago. Perhaps I can make one before Marines about his Toupie Hollandaise tables  . . .

I thought you were going to say the weird coincidence was that you were, indeed, building a rocket to go to the moon!!!

Speaking of wild dreams and personal moon rockets...

I do dream I one day can save enough money to pay my ticket in a rocket to the Moon or Mars. Enough for a round trip ticket, that is!  ;D

Ah ha!!!  I was waiting for that.  I figured a trip like this was right up your alley.  I wondered if you were going to confess it or not!!!

I wanted to start this dream thread because every once in a while I have a crazy spin top themed dream and I am wondering if others also have them.  My guess is that Ketzaltlipoka has had some.  I must admit, I had a number of disturbing dreams while first unpacking Don's collection.  I am doing better with that now but I am trying to remember some of them for your entertainment?

I had another dream about tops the other night.  This time it was at the world championships at Cleveland.  I was standing backstage with the other competitors waiting to go onstage.  The thoughts that kept running through my mind were "what should I do......what tricks sequence should I put together.....am I even ready for this......maybe I should just walk away and not compete!!!"

I recently had a dream where it was moments before a competition at worlds and I was trying to get my tops ready and there was a feeling of anxiety as I was nervous about the contest.  I remember looking around and trying to see who else was competing and I saw a number of people from other countries but there were a lot of individuals I did not know.

Anyways, while looking up this subject and trying to find this thread to post my dream, I ran across this one from 113 and thought I would also put it here:

Hello Everyone,
I had a dream last night that YoyoFactory beat me to making a commercial, mass produced "big spin top". It was a 4" black spin top that was made out of rubber. It was hollow and used rubber for the sides of the spin top. Would rubber even work for a big spin top? I think it would deform and throw the top off balance, but it was just a dream!

Anyway, the spin top label said "Big Trooper" and cost $39.95 Does anyone think this is a sign? Am I psychic? Am I missing something?

It was a 4" Black Hollow Yoyo Factory Rubber Spintop, with a label that said "Big Trooper", and cost $39.95.

I would like to know your thoughts if any on this oddly specific and vivid dream!

Thank you,
113

Had another top dream recently.  We were all standing around in the hallway at worlds in Cleveland.  I had a box of tops and I was sharing them with everyone.  People seemed happy and I was happy to share some items from Don's lair.  Then it hit me.  I did not bring those big wood flipover tops and their handles.  There are so many and I was so excited to share them so I have more space in the hall of fame.  Anyways, maybe this dream will help me not forget to bring them to hand out!!!

Ha ha!!!  Very good, Jeremy!  That is, indeed, the common dream of public speakers and consequently a dream that seems to come around often in the life of preachers.  I have had a number of those kinds of dreams.  Interestingly enough, though, when a top is involved I always have pants on.

Maybe now, with that suggestion, I will one day have a pantsless top dream?  I will keep you posted!

Wouldn't help with top performances, but you could stash an emergency pair of pants behind the pulpit just for peace of mind.
