I’ve had a couple… I think I might just make separate posts for them, I remember these kinds of dreams really well for some reason and I write them down so I don’t forget the funny details. My most recent one was about Ryutaro (Plastic Tree) and I told my friend (not on here but also Kurage) about the dream in detail:
So, I had a dream that I was at a fancy hotel doing sightseeing in this town
I went to this festival just to check it out and lo and behold, I see Ryutaro there. I call out to him in Japanese and he responds, pleased that I speak his language. I stammer and speak with the same amount of grace as a toddler as I tell him how excited I am to meet one of my favourite musicians in my broken Japanese and he extends his hand out for a handshake. I gratefully accept, he tells me that he loves meeting fans in unexpected places, that my Japanese is really good (it’s really not, he just can’t speak English so I’m sure he was happy that we could communicate), etc. Then he starts walking somewhere, and I follow him. I try fishing out my phone from my backpack while we walk. I ask him “Can I take a picture?” but he abruptly stops. Then a notice a group of people has gathered around us and they say in English, “Hey, it’s our turn with him!”. I was like, “What?”, then Ryutaro gives me his camera which he had around his neck. I was like (probably what I sounded like in Japanese) “Picture on my phone, Ryutaro-san, not digital camera!” and try to hand it back but then he starts walking away after giving me his camera. “Take pictures,” he said, in firm and basic Japanese. I was confused but decided to listen to him, even asking “Is Auto Ok? Or is Manual better?” after I ended up with his (rather expensive looking, looked like a Canon DLSR) camera. He leaves to a DJ turntable with other people. Then I notice that those people from earlier have started dancing to VK that started playing. And I realized that I have to take pictures of them. He probably trusted me because I was the only Kurage in the vicinity who could string together a coherent sentence in Japanese but I also coincidentally had photography experience from high school. I snapped lots of photos of people dancing to VK songs. Even my unconscious brain can only summon VK songs in my dreams, it seems. I saw a live playlist on a digital display board and remember seeing popular names such as O.1gの誤算 being played, also ACME. When it was over, everyone dispersed but I still wanted a photo with Ryutaro. So I searched for him (I still had his camera too) but every time I saw him, someone distracted me while he walked away. Eventually, at the end of my dream, I ended up in a sweets shop where he was behind the counter. But the cashier at the shop started sweet-talking some deals to me, Ryutaro walked away, and then the dream ended. I never got my photo… And I still have his DLSR camera.
