|||||Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy - Andrews Sisters||]|
Darn! I was going to do this cool LJ meme where it posts everyone's user pics, but unfortunately it stopped at the N's... so I'll have to try that one a different day when the computer's behaving better.
So instead... I guess you get another historical fact!
The violinist and composer Tartini dreamed that he handed his violin to the Devil and listened while the Devil played a sonata of astonishing beuaty. When he tried to reproduce the sonata on awakning, he could only remember one repeated trill. He used this trill as his theme in his "Trillo del Diavolo".
- When was your last nightmare? Mine was last night. Someone electrocuted my septuplets. *boggles*
And here's the Andrews Sister's doing Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy. Awesomeness. :)
( Eta the link. Whoops. LOL There ya go!)
I always have the same bad dream. Almost every night. I have regular dreams, like anyone else. But about 5-7 minutes before I wake up, I go into the same bad nightmare. I'm completely lucid, and know I'm dreaming. I can move around freely, but I still can't affect anything. The dream is, basically, I'm in some dramatic recreation of Hell. All the people I care about, all the people I love, and most of the people I see on a regular basis, are all there. They're being tortured. They're being dismantled, mutilated, destroyed. But I can't do anything to stop it. Nothing I do makes a difference. I pull and tug on arms of demonic creatures, but I'm powerless to stop their movement. I'm never attacked, I'm never harmed. I hear their screams of pain and agony. People that have been around when I have such dreams tell me I shake, squirm, moan and sometimes scream. I always awaken with a start, covered in sweat. My only reprieve from these dreams, is that they only come at the end of another dream. If I don't dream at all, then I am spared this sight.
*hugs* That's awful. :( I know they have some pills out there for people that have terrible nightmares taht you can take to try and eliminate nightmares but the idea of taking pills like that concerns me. I don't know if that'd be something you'd be interested in.
