INLAND EMPIRE dream

In hotel in Boston. Corner of room has huge long window that fits down both walls. In my sleep I saw a missing scene from INLAND EMPIRE playing through the windows. It was a panning shot across a strip of land from far away on which long minimal houses were sitting with long paned windows I could see into. could see deep into the houses. Deep focus. Through the windows in some rooms there were people laying naked passed out on the bed at strange angles. The rooms were dark and sparse and many other rooms were empty. There was no sound. The panning shot kept moving over the houses. There were other short frames of things I can't remember. In my sleeping after I saw the scene I could not stop myself from shitting. Shit was falling out of me. I was trying to keep from getting myself all over the floor in the hotel room. Something else was going on at the window. In not sleeping someone came into the room as I was sleepshitting and I came out of sleeping as I began to notice something else.

brandon, that question was funny and i wanted to know the answer too.

blake, the essential ingredient of your dream is completely unable to be communicated.
