  1. Mission of Burma

    I recently had a pleasant dream where I was wading through a calm clear stream with my 4-year old son. the weather was perfect, the sun was warm, the water was cool, and my son was jumping into the water making gigantic splashes, bigger than is possible in real life. the splashed water arced upwards slowly, hypnotically, and my son was giggling non-stop as we both got soaking wet…a really nice dream.

  2. Misson of Burma

    I had a dream once, i was in like a tall hedge maze, but the maze was in the shape of my name. And when i finally escaped there was a GIANT toad at the end and it at me. the most clear dream i remembered ever and that was when i was 7 years old!

  3. I would love hood internet to mash up some theophilus london with sophie rimheden. i want to hear the juan maclean (a more instrumental piece) mashed up with some wu tang or perhaps tupac. geneva jacuzzi with something more disco like the golden filter.

  4. Awesome responses guys! This week’s tickets go to Tyler for Hood Internet, and Alex for MOB.

  5. Los Campesinos >< Wiz Khalifa

    How awesome would that be (re: Hood Internet)?

  6. Hoping I can sneak a late submission for Trampled by Turtles in since no one else responded.
    Floyd’s Meddle is my #1 musical narcotic from One of These Days all the way thru Echoes. It makes my limbs go limp and my head slip away.
