Had a conversation with a dead man in my dreams last night. When I was an undergrad, my apartment was a few blocks away from a house with four friends, three of them from my hometown. I was originally only friends with one of them, but later became good with the others. Haven't kept in touch with any of them since finishing my BA, tho. A couple years or ago, one of them popped into my head so I googled him and found out he'd died less than a year before. The obituary didn't mention illness and I poking around didn't find any accidents, so I wondered if it was suicide. Part of me thought about contacting some people from my hometown, but my motives were ghoulish so I didn't. Anyway, in my dream, I was sitting on the steps of a small town general store (very cinematic) with some others and this guy shows up. After some confusing small talk, I tell him that he's supposed to be dead. He gets very upset and wants to know how and why, and I confess that I don't know. So we start walking along a country road to find out whether he's actually dead.The bulk of our conversation was me trying to calm him down over being dead/not dead.
Sounds a bit Twilight Zoney, you just need a better ending. Go back to sleep and fix it.
Gimme a few more hours and I'll get on that.
You younger folk have zero motivation.
If I make it to my 60s, I promise it'll be different.

Someone needs to write an anthology series based on Doc's dreams.

All I ever dream about is not being able to find my high school locker.

I had a dream last night. I woke up and was gonna write it down. But then I said nah, I'll remember it was so bizarre how could I forget it.

Well I forgot. I forgot I even had it until reading your post Jenny.

I've become semi-obsessed again to learn how he died, but I won't do the one thing I'd have to—contact someone in my hometown. Part of my curiosity, I think, is an awareness of reaching an age where more of this will start happening. Fifty is still young to die, but it's not as freakish as twenty-five, y'know?

Apparently 3 years ago I had a dream that I was dragging the corpse of Elton John about in a suitcase. It came up on my Facebook memories today but I have no recollection of it.

Can you go back in time and do it before he turned into such a crappy songwriter. Ive never been a fan but fuck he's dropped some huge loads of shit in the latter years, even if it did chart.

If not sooner. That would at least spare me "Why they call it the blues and candles in the wind nonsense.

I'd say he was still a good songwriter through 1976's Blue Moves. After that it's so, so fucking dicey. I don't think he had more than a half-decent single to his name for like two and a half decades at that point. His 2000s albums are mostly pretty good, tho.

Im going to remain a skeptic and chalk this up to you also liking DMB and Hootie.
