If it's Wednesday, It Must Be Sponsorship Day

I'm a little disappointed with today's Brezsny:

In the entire history of the world, there has never been a time that neglects dreams more than ours. Every other culture has paid more attention to the information that's available to us while we're sleeping. This ennervating ignorance incurs a personal cost. If you're one of those who rarely recalls your dreams, you're suffering a grievous loss of connection with the wisdom of your unconscious mind. And even if you do stay in touch with your dreams, most of the people around you aren't connected to theirs, and that generates stupendous stupidity. Want to remedy the problem, Gemini? It's a perfect astrological moment to improve your relationship with the realm where you spend one-third of your life. Here are a few resources: the book Living Your Dreams by Gayle Delaney; the book Radical Dreaming: Use Your Dreams to Change Your Life by John Goldhammer; the Lucid Dream Institute (http://www.lucidity.com); dream interpretations by Jonathan Zap (http://snipurl.com/paar).

Not that I fully disagree with his point, just that he's usually more suave and entertaining while making them.

I may have mentioned my cousin Bill Basquin the local filmmaker to some of you. He invited me to a pre-showing of Art School Confidential. It's pretty good, and reasonably amusing. I wouldn't have seen it in a theater otherwise 'cause, y'know, movie.

Got a good chance to sit around and talk to Bill for awhile, though. It's always nifty when I happen to be related to somebody who I would voluntarily associate with :-)
