A few weeks ago, I had this quite cool, but kind of weird dream. Don't ask me how I remember all the facets of the dream, maybe because it was so weird.
WALL OF TEXT WARNING! Don't go farther if you don't like to read...

The dream begins me waking up from my bed, and I walk on upstairs, where I see a mid-90's green ford taurus pulling up my driveway. I walk over to my mom and ask her who's here (from now on, dialogues, and when someone is speaking, i'll do a different format).

Me: Mom, do you know who that is?
Mom: Yeah, I invited someone over for you to play guitar with.
Me: What's his name?
Mom: I don't know (this is when I realized that I was in a dream)

Anyways, I wander on out, and the stranger is honking the horn on his car, and going around to his trunk and unloads what appears to be guitar cases and stuff like that. I walk up to the stranger. The stranger appears to be in his 20's or 30's (i've always been bad with ages)

Me: Hey, what's up?
Stranger (in obvious english accent): Hey mate, could you help me unload my car?
Me: Sure. *shakes hand with stranger* My name is Wes Salisbury.
Stranger: Eric Clapton... Nice to meet you.

At this moment, i'm assured that it's a dream, but I wanted to see where it went. The guy WAS clapton for sure. He looked exactly like he did on the Bluesbreaker beano album cover. I actually saw the newspaper from the album cover on the passenger seat of his car.

Me: Wait, you're Eric Clapton?
Eric: Yeah! Who else would I be?
Me: Why are you here?
Eric: Your mum invited me over.
Me: All right, you can bring your stuff down to my room.
Eric: Thanks!

So, I help him bring some nice combo amps down to my room. I believed that they were some 18 watt marshalls. along with a strat, a nice sunburst LP, and he brought a nice martin acoustic along.
Once we got everything unloaded and set up in my room, Eric took a seat on my couch and looked over to my peavey classic 50 in the corner.

Eric: Wow! That looks like a nice amp, mind if I try it?
Me: Gave hand gesture for "go ahead". Sure, try it out.
Eric: *plugs in, and hits the opening lick for Layla*. Nice! Mind if I play for a while longer?
Me: I don't mind at all. I'm going to go upstairs out to your car, I think I saw a bag of picks in there, can I have your keys?
Eric: Sure *takes a set of keys out of his pocket and tosses them to me*.

I go upstairs out to his car, and I unlock it and grab the bag of accessories. While I am walking back downstairs, I smell smoke, and a small cloud was billowing from my room. When I open the door, I see that my amp is smoking, and obviously broken.

Eric: Sorry, you amp just fried on me! I'm so sorry.
Me: That's alright, what happened?
Eric: I was playing on it, and when I cranked it up high, I must have did something to break it, then it started smoking and it shut off!
Me: I guess that's fine (I don't understand why I was so cool about it).
Eric: I'm going to make it up to you! I'll go out and buy you a replacement.
Me: Alright, i'll just stay here then.
Eric: See you later!

Eric drives away, and I sit around playing acoustic for about 20 minutes. At that time, I get a call at home.

Me: Hello?
Eric: Hey, I'm at the music store, and I have a couple of combo amps here which I think you'll love. One's an old marshall, one's a fender, and the other is a peavey.
Me (assuming that when he meant old, he meant like 60's): Hmm... I'm thinking the marshall.
Eric: alright, i'll pick that one up then.

Time passes, and Eric pulls back in. He runs inside before I can see the new amp and instructs me to close my eyes while he brings the new amp down to my room and sets it up.

Eric: Ok, open your eyes!

Right there in front of me, was sitting a Marshall MG 30 watt combo. At this moment, I was quite ticked off.

Eric: don't you love it? It's marshall, and I played it and it had CRUSHING overdrive (he actually said that).

Me: ... son of a ...(dream ends)

HAHA! made me lol...

sounds like you had one of those dreams where you could've woken up but decided to sleep through it and continue the scenario anyway because it was already such a cool dream or maybe you were just lazy to get up
it happens to me all the time, those dreams i remember the best, i love them

Well, the reason that it was cool, was that I got to meet Eric Clapton (he seemed really dense. There was this other dream where Eric Johnson came along and kept insulting clapton's tone, that's another story though). It was bad that I wound up getting an MG.

being that dreams are only flashes of random memories that your mind pieces together as you wake up, the dream didnt actually MEAN anything. you were probably talking to your mom that day, then you listened to some clapton, and you probably played on your peavey.

but if i had to make a moral out of your dream, it would be that mg's suck

I bet he painted it the color of various vomits, and your mom doesn't even play guitar.
Seriously, wtf is that ****? "I know your son plays and he would like this, so I'll give it to you instead."
What a jackass.

Edit: For those who don't know, TS is describing a lucid dream. They stay in your memory longer and more detailed than a normal dream.

i see wut you did thar.

But come on.. how do you remember in so much detail? my dreams dont even tend to last longer than 30 seconds..




That's what I was thinking. Also it flows too perfectly. If I had a dream like this it would be something like, I wake up, all my furniture is big, Eric Clapton is wearing boardshorts, and wants to play Xbox.

I have a photographic memory. I've had it all my life.
I knew the locations of all the countries when I was 3, I knew all the USA presidents when I was 5, and I would memorize whole chapters of books so I could tell them from memory.
Plus, this dream stood out alot, so I knew everything in detail.

Eh, i'll probably wait until this one fades into obscurity (maybe half an hour?).
There was also this one time where SRV and Robert Johnson showed up (Robert Johnson was in black and white) and battled.
I'll post those some other time though.

Lol, reminds me of that simpson's episode where Metallica's tour bus broke down and Otto offered them a ride. Then they end up going with moleman because moleman slept with Lar's mom. Good episode.
I'll post up my other dreams sometime later. I noticed that almost all of my dreams are guitar related.
And also, no, I don't think this dream meant that i'm gay for clapton. I think I just remember things too much.

Mmmm, dreams often show your wants or fears.

In this case, the TS fears getting an MG (perhaps he wants one?).

you couldnt possibly be more wrong, dreams are completely random. if you dream about having sex with some girl, you probably thought about that girl at some point in the past few days. you could like her, but it has nothing to do with the dream.
and my friend just told me about how he had a dream he tried to murder his dad, he's a completely normal kid, he took two ambien before going to sleep though.

What about if he dreamt murdering his dad in the most brutal way possible every night of his life? Would he still be 'normal'?

some dreams aren't normal, they get pushed to the limits, they usually have subtle meanings though
Freud's theory
you dream about stuff you either want or are afraid of, the kid could be afraid of killing his dad, or not like him, like most people don't really like their dads in teenage years
then again, Freud was messed up, so don't quote me on this
