Palliativity 172: dreaming of flight

Posted on November 29, 2012

Over the years, I taught myself how to lucid dream.

When Waking Life came out in 2001, I went to the Music Box theater and watched it three times in one weekend.

After a bit of practice, lucid dreaming became the only kind I have.

My waking life is filled with chronic pain, and dreaming became my escape.

When I close my eyes to sleep, I emerge into a blank construct of reality over which I have total control. I can be anyone or anything anywhere. I feel no pain. When I awaken in the morning, I have total recall. I converse with the living as well as the dead. I reenact plays and epic films. I speak every language and play every instrument. I breathe underwater and rocket thru space and time. I can fly:

"super perfundo on the early eve of your day"

Palliativity 170: The Stolen Lump, 1929

Posted on November 8, 2012

Where can I find a good Tengu? I don't think they're covered by my insurance…

Plot Synopsis:
"An old woodcutter with a swollen goiter hides in a tree during a rainstorm, and afterwards sees a gathering of Tengu.
He dances for them, and they’re entertained, so they grant his wish. He tells a friend but things don't go as planned."

In Japanese fairy tales, the happy endings are all the same:

An then not everyone died… yet.

Production Company: Yokohama Cinema - 1929
Drawings: Yasuji Murata
Script & original story: Chuzo Aoji
Cinematograher: Yukikiyo Ueno
