I had this dream last night where I was at this old hippy house I used to hang out at. I opened the door and Mike was there, and in my dream, I knew I had managed to go back in time. I went to see my friend Kim who was hanging out on the couch and I warned her about going on the bike ride. I told her how she would be killed if she went.

After that, I went to a store and bought a giant ice cream cookie.

Castles and Aliens

I had two really creative dreams last night. This morning, I had this dream where Colleen and I were driving up Waverly and we seen this bizarre light in the sky. It was very strange, the light was unusual in a way that is hard to describe, part of it was shining on the moon and another somewhere else. It was coming from a weird alien looking thing in the sky. It landed in a building and we pulled over. Someone else who was also pulled over said,
"That's the animal research center."

So after a bit, we kept driving, and a weird very tall looking figure in a cloak crossed the road in front of us and was running along side us in the ditch. I tried to get its attention by yelling at it but I didn't want to sound intimidating so I was making these strange muffled noises to get it to look at us. I was also making these noises in bed, and it woke me up.

Colleen said, "what was that?"

I explained my dream to her.

The dream earlier in the night, I was in a castle and there were these people trying to get in and I was fighting them off with a sword. I was stabbing and cutting a lot of people, but like my other dream where I was doing violent things, it felt more like a video game then anything else. After losing the fight against the people, the situation reset, like a game, and I was fending them off again. This time, I threw them all down a pit, one by one. It was really easy, like finding a flaw in AI. I proceeded down in to the castle where I was fighting more people. The one thing that wasn't like a video game was that when I got stabbed or cut, it hurt.

Darth Vader

I had this dream last night where I was Darth Vader. For some reason, I kept the light saber attached to my neck rather then at my hip. I was throwing the light saber at groups of enemies and using the force to move the light saber around. Even though I was cutting large groups of people down, it felt more like a video game then actually killing mobs of people.

Tigers on a cliff

I had another bizarre dream where Colleen and I were hang-gliding and we landed on this cliff. We were supposed to follow these tour guides along a rope bridge but there were these tigers in the way. There was another rope bridge but a large herd of tigers were crossing it and coming towards us. We dropped down on to this ledge of the cliff where we thought they couldn't get at us, but one dropped down and started licking Colleens face. I petted it, then woke up.

Living on Mars

I had this dream last night that I was living on Mars. The ground was all red at first but over time grass started to grow and a few trees were here and there. It was very surreal and I'm very happy to have a dream like that.

10,423rd day

Where am I at?

Since performing at the cavern, I've made multiple return trips, and performed a couple times at a few other venues.

My tent got all smashed up and I'm presuming it was a bear. I went a bought a new tent, but it's a little too small for my cot, so I'm not sure if I want to bring it back or use smaller bedding. It's one of those pop up tents that you just throw out and it sets itself up. I'm still trying to figure out how to get it back in the bag. Camping in the wilderness of Manitoba is absolutely nuts right now. I've never seen so many mosquitoes.

I'm looking for an apartment. I found a really nice one at an amazing price, but the guy was trying to tell me that before I can see the place, I need to send him money and he'll deliver me the key. I'm almost certain it was a scam, so I told him forget about it. I'm not that desperate for an apartment that I would just send someone money and hope to get a key delivered to me. If I need a place to sleep, I just need to bust out the pop up tent and there we go, all set.

I went to the Cavern last night and told a bunch of jokes. The room was cracking up. I'm so glad that I managed to pull it off.

it felt so good to make the whole room laugh like that. It's like this: This could be the beginning of something amazing, or it could have been one absolutely incredible night that I'll remember forever and that's it.

Either way, I'm fine. Nevertheless, I didn't have enough time to do my whole set. I had fifteen minutes of material and then found out at the bar that I could only do five, so I started off by saying this is part one of a three part series as a joke. But now I guess I'm committed.

At one point, the guy flashed his light at me, I said, "oh shit, it's like my ex-wife when we were making love, are we done yet? geez.." I should have said, "My sex is kind of like watching lost, it's good but every once in a while she's just, let's just end the damn thing already."

That's one of those jokes that have a time limit on them. As lost gets older, it gets less funny. Maybe I could have the punchline be something like,

"I keep you in the mystery, what's he going to do next?"

hmm... maybe it needs work, but w/e, thought since I was talking about comedy I might as well put down a couple jokes without using all my good stuff.

I do have to come up with some good shit for parts 2 and 3, I have material but I used all the best last night.

I have to go check on my tent, I went to go see it last night at 4 in the morning after the show and it was completely dark, I stepped in to the woods that are normally dry and felt about a foot of water. So, yea, it's probably floating away right now. Hey, maybe I can use it as a mobile home. I'm moving up in the world.

I can probably work that in to a joke... lol... my mind is just twinkling right now, it's like a jalapeno high.

Short Story: The Trip

Eric watched the sun set.

"Have I ever watched the sun set in it's entirety?" Eric thought to himself. He had been staring out his small apartment window for a few hours now. "This will be the last sunset I ever see."

Eric raised the pen and continued to write.

"If I had more time, this suicide note would be a suicide novel. I'll spare you the apologies and all the reasoning as to what has brought me here. Just know that this is not your fault. This is the only choice left for me to take."

This was a lie, and Eric knew it. He didn't have to steal his fathers gun when he went to visit last Sunday, he didn't have to put in the bullet, and he didn't have to pull the trigger. Yet, he still chose to do so.

The bullet penetrated his brain and in a few short moments, he was dead.

He didn't expect to feel any pain but for the first time he could remember he felt the greatest pain that he had ever felt. Like every cell in his body was being tortured and Eric was frozen in time as the pain reached it's peak.

"AAAAAGGHHHHH!!!" Eric screamed.

All of a sudden, it stopped. There was nothing but white.

"I suppose that is better now, yes?" A strange voice said to him. This voice was part robotic, part human, part... something else that Eric couldn't put his finger on. It had a soothing, purring sound to it.

"What the fuck?! What the FUCK?!" Eric yelled out. In the whiteness around him a strange figure of light appeared before him.

"Well, that wasn't too smart now was it...." The voice seemed to come from the light. "Eric? That was your name, yes?"

"Yea..." Eric replied

"You... how can you understand this... fucked up." The voice explained to him. "Maybe you can explain to me how someone with such an exceptional record can resort to suicide."

"Exceptional record?" Eric asked, still dazed from the trip.

"Yes, it says here you were quite heroic in 1820 as a firefighter, you saved a lot of people, in 1536, you made significant advances in the medical field."
"Rein... carnation?" Eric muttered.

"It'll come back to you." The voice said. "How could a character with such a high value for life resort to suicide?"

"I had nothing to live for..." Eric explained. "My wife left me, I was fired, I was swimming in debt..."

"Yes, and now it's starting to seem petty, isn't it. We gave you a life, Eric, and you threw it away. These trips don't come cheap, and if you can't handle the 21st century, there's no way you'll be able to handle the 31st century."

"Is that the year we're in?"

"No, that's where you were headed if you passed, but I'm afraid you failed miserably Eric."

It was starting to come back to Eric. This was life, to exist in this time period, he had first needed to prove himself again and again in many different time periods prior. He had gone through many times now but now this thing was contemplating erasing Eric from existence. His problems in the 21st century really were starting to look petty and insignificant when compared to the big picture.

"Please don't erase me." Eric begged.

"I don't think it is quite time for that, but you will have to repeat a few cycles. I'm sorry Eric."

"No, please, don't send me back. Let me stay here, please."

"Good bye Eric."

"Agghh!" Eric yelled as the unbearable pain started coming back.

The scream started to get muffled and everything got dark for Eric. Then light flooded his eyes and the scream started coming back, this time from the mouth of a newborn infant. "Wahhhhh" The scream filled the room of the hospital. Eric was now gone and while the body was different there was still the same essence within. When his eyes opened, he was now in 1943, born in a German hospital. Eric, or the body formerly known as Eric would have to prove himself once again.

story idea

So, I'm moving out of Winnipeg, back to the country. I'm planning on doing a lot of camping. I want to write, I have this book idea I really want to work on. I also want to take some pictures. The land that I'll be camping on is very close to where I was born, and ties in to my story idea. I was born and grew up in the middle of a forest on the edge of wilderness and farmland. I had long bus rides an hour to and fro, where I came up with this.

It was about this alien creature that slips from another dimension in to ours and begins terrorizing the forest. It begins to stalk the big yellow school bus and one day attacks it. The little boy saved the kids on the bus, and later kills the creature, but its corpse was nowhere to be found, and no one believed him.

My teacher loved it, I got full marks, and was going to keep writing the story, I had plans on writing that the boy later grew up and slipped in to their dimension, where he finds out that the creature wasn't an evil monster, but an intelligent creature in a hostile environment. At the time, I was heavily inspired by "Jurassic Park". Also, growing up in a religious household, I didn't want to accept evolution, and was thinking of alternate theories. Different species slipping from one dimension came from that. I think what I was trying to say is that we don't really know what's going on, there could be something like this happening, even though it's a very rare event.

For reasons I won't disclose at the moment, I abandoned the story, but have recently been thinking about it more and more, and want to get it all down. The story itself has evolved and the idea is that every so often, different membranes holding universes like our own will get close enough that if the conditions are right, the information will get mixed. This happens a lot in open space, but when two planets align, sometimes certain things will slip from one brane in to another.

This can cause certain planets to be tied to one another, and in very rare circumstances, creatures can slip from one to another bringing in very different genes that were adapted from different environments.

Originally it was meant to be an alternate theory to evolution, but the story in its current state says that this is what causes such dramatically different species.

I've heard of panspermia, which says that life can travel from planet to planet, this is a notion that life travels through dimensions.



Anyways, I don't think I want to publish any more in this blog because I believe I have some really great ideas to take this from an old idea I cooked up on long school bus rides to a really great story.

I should look in to getting a cheap laptop...

wouldn't it be cool if there was some way to see back in time?

Like a giant reflective galaxy (or giant mass) that sends back all the photons that hit it. So the sun would shine on Earth, the light then bounces off and hits the mirror galaxy and comes back to Earth where we observe the past. Of coarse, there would need to be some sort of futuristic technology that could absorb the Earth's photons but filter out all the other ones. You would only be able to see on clear days, and the right time of year, but it's an interesting concept. One, that could provide absolute proof of things that happened in the past.

I've thought about this often, and I think about the most interesting things, like the "first ever" moments.

I wonder when the first word was ever spoken by a human. To see the first person trying to convince other people how to speak and how to use language would be fascinating.

I know some people believe that we were created with language or that a species that lived in the sea taught us how to speak.

I would love to see the real truth, to be able to look back in time and see it unfold.

that's it, back to Winnipeg!

So I found a place in the city. I'll be moving in with 2 other people whom I've never met. I think it should be interesting. I'm a little nervous, but excited at the same time. Living out in the country is great but I really got to get out of my parents basement. I remember when things weren't going my way, I used to always be able to say, at least I'm not one of those bums that's still living with his parents. Now all I have is, "at least I'm not homeless"

I could probably afford to rent my own place, but I really like how things have been going with my finances lately and in the long run, I want to get enough to buy or build my own house and maybe rent some space to people. So moving in with these other people should be a bit of a learning experience as to how that would work. It'll be nice to meet some new faces as well.

I'm definitely not looking forward to the moving part, but I think I'm just going to take what I need for now and pick up more as I go.

So EA was a little unsure on if they should go forward with another Tiger Woods game. Personally, I think his recent situation would make some interesting mini-games. "How many woman can you cheat on before the media finds out?"
