I woke up and it's yesterday . . .

Song in my head:
"Guiding Light" by Television

Yesterday morning I dreamed we were having a Double Dare theme party at our place. There was an elaborate obstacle course with slides and slime. On a long table was a display of all sorts of prizes (including a blue bike). We had plenty of snacks on the table and I started to eat some. Then I woke up but I could have sworn that my pillow case was not the usual dark green. I saw a picture of Snoopy dancing with his head up and fast-moving feet. About five seconds passed before the image faded away and it went back to dark green. The housemate suggests that I was dreaming while I was awake. Strange.

Watched Napoleon Dynamite last night. I heard good things about it and thought it was very interesting. No, that's not code for "I hated it." I laughed hard at the opening shot's homage (don't know if it was deliberate or not) to Dawn of the Dead (as in, starting with a tight shot of red shag carpet). I liked the slower pace with the droning voices of Napoleon and Pedro. Their looks with glazed eyes and smile/frowns are pretty memorable. Great songs in it too: especially Jamiroquai's track along with 1980s Top 40 hits. The final scene's song reminded me of a certain band's version of it. Recommended. This reminds me: I still need to see Shaun of the Dead.

Want to hear the Flaming Lips' version of "Seven Nation Army?" NME has it here.
