I slept really lousy on the night after returning from Folsom Street Fair. Every time I woke up from this dream, I kept sinking back into it:
For whatever reason — dream logic doesn’t requires these things be explained or even make sense — I sat bare-assed on a chocolate frosted cake. I then proceeded to clean it up by scooping big fingerfuls off my ass and licking the brown frosting off my fingers. (Yeah, so it looked like that.)I think I’ll blame this on the Reuben sandwich I had for dinner last night.
At the same time, my father videotaped this. He then posted the video to YouTube, under the name “kbd hong” (so I guess I was Chinese in the dream), with the title “Look what I did on my honeymoon!” (but I wasn’t even married in the dream). The video immediately scored 80,000 views, and soon thereafter broke 300,000 views, and then got featured on Fox News.
My father refused to take it down from YouTube, so I sued them, and I sued him for both defamation of character and for damages (including the money made from page views and ads that came from YouTube). And I had to deal with a media circus, and repeatedly send cease & desist letters and sue people for reposting and remixing the video.
Worst was the mashup of the video with the song “Chocolate Rain”.
Let me revise the intro to this: I didn’t sleep lousy. I slept crappy.
