AI Dream #33 - Apologies to the hummingbird

I was driving a white Lamborghini from Ancona to Collemarino.

When driving through Torrette, my friend Valentina tells me to look to my right, towards the sea.
I see a giant ship and I get scared, but I keep my focus on the road because I don’t want to crash my brand new supercar.
The perspective is the one I fear the most, in front of the the bow.

I turn my head to the left and I see my high school German teacher, turned into a hummingbird.
I wonder if she remembers me now that she is in animal form. In case she does, I whisper my apologies for having lost most of my knowledge of the German language.

AI Dream #32 - Pre-death parties, scary fathers and decomposing corpses

We open Luco’s mailbox, whose name was Lucostino, there were only three blank postcards. So sad. Two were from Milli, and one said that my mother was the President. I show them to Marzia.

I am at my grandma’s when Robertina, one of the neighbours, invites me to a pre-death party in honour of her dying father Leo. I accept and once I am there I see zia Sunta in bed with Leo.
Happy and surprised to see her, I stroke her gently to wake her up.
She is confused, I tell her not to worry and then leave. In a garage there are three big but not powerful motorbikes, they were custom built by Bibo, Robertina’s brother. I wonder how they can stay put.
One of the bikes is inspired by a videogame and has a small roof, it’s wonderful and I want it so bad, so that when it rains, Milli won’t get wet.
I leave the party and Robertina dies.

There is a little girl, she is a red dot and she is on a leaf. Her father is dressed like a gigantic insect and he is playing to scare her. He has many insect costumes, cute at first and then monstrous, the little girl jumps from the leaf and the dad dies. I wonder where he kept the clothes, so many, so big.

There is a garage with the word Valentin written everywhere and some access denied signals.
I enter anyway and I see a boy affected by the Down syndrome dressed like an egg, many eggs. I am with a partner, we got knives, I peel the egg costume and I understand that the boy had spent much time there.
He tells us vampires are coming.
Actually, two thieves come and we stab them to death. What are we going to do with the bodies? The boy tells us to keep the bodies with his family, and points up to the second floor.
We go up, there is a stinky bedroom, from the glass wall I can see corpses, his decomposing family.
We throw in the two new corpses and shut the door back.

We take a sit in another room, the house is so beautiful, we say to each other that we could live there for a little while.

AI dream #23: the peeing panther at the dentists’

Richard, Peter and Danilo are work at a new project about GUI, using a new software. Somehow, the project is also about finding old watches. I listen to their presentation, trying to grasp how it works and see if I could help. The headquarter was in a filthy flat in Soho, the floor was uneven and everything was dusty. It was Francesco’s flat.

I am housesitting somewhere I have never been before. The owners are some family friends, both dentists. I am there with Ljudi. We weren’t told there was a panther in the apartment. It’s time to go to sleep and we discuss what to do with the animal. If we close the bedroom door, it may feel trapped and act crazy. If we leave it open, it may get close to us while we are sleeping. We decide to leave the door open and sleep in the corridor, standing. The point is that the panther will think we are awake.

I fall asleep while standing and the panther wakes me up with gentle but damn scary bites. I try my best to understand what she wanted. Was it the light? Did she want a different room? Did she want a blanket? The more I tried the more she was getting nervous. Finally, I understand she probably needed to pee. I find a balcony, we are now at my grandma’s. The panther pees, standing on the very edge of the balcony. I remember when my grandma and my aunt used to tell me to stay away from the edge of the balcony.

AI dream #21: the sockets are on fire, drop the coffin

At my grandma’s house, the sockets were on fire. I try to extinguish the fire with a bottle of water.

I tell Nicla to call the firefighters, but nobody is listening so I call them. Someone answers my call and tells me the fire is not dangerous and I shouldn’t get worried. I scoff and ask their name. It’s my cousin Jacopo. I ask him if he realises how dangerous the situation is with two old ladies and they’d better hurry.

I tell Zia Sunta not to worry and I show her I am in charge of the situation, because I am extinguishing the fire with my bottle of water.

We are then at my parents house, in what used to be my childhood bedroom. My mom’s sisters help me move a small, white coffin from my bedroom. The handles are made of gold. It’s hard to manoeuvre and I am directing them. Both of them, one after the other, drop the handles. I tell them off and I grab all the handles myself. It’s surprisingly light.

I go back to my grandma’s home and I see a guy from my childhood years, building a burial niche for Zia Sunta. He is doing a messy job and I try to fix it. I ask Nicla if she had thought of covering the raw cement and bricks with some marble. She says now it’s time to fix the mess, then later we’ll think about aesthetics.

AI dream #17: the baby who disappeared in the grapes before a big improvised sale

During a family reunion in Collemarino, we find a new baby. He must have been only a few weeks old. We lose sight of him, but we could feel his presence in a bowl of fruit, particularly in the grapes. I say to my aunt Nicla: we gotta find him. So we go to what seemed to be her old apartment near the main square of Collemarino. She opens the door and the alarm goes off. I try to talk to the guard of the alarm system company, but the speaker is old and I can’t grasp what he is saying.

Hundreds of people enter through the main door and go near a big table where a lot of objects were tidily displayed. They were Nicla’s belongings. She looks at me, questioning me with her eyes on what we were supposed to do. Solution: we start shouting “everything is on sale for €2!” And we laugh.

AI dream #13: film with locals. Don’t steal my grandma’s tomatoes

My whole family from my mother’s side, alive and dead components, were together at the beach. Someone was shooting a movie and my family was taking part in it: one would cook for the crew, one would help with the scenography... I think of writing an article about how filming in non conventional locations could help local economy prosper and give a other-than-Hollywood touch to the movies.

My grandma is pissed off at two Tesco delivery guys who try to steal her tomatoes. She opens the door with two pickaxes and she beats the hell out of them. I help her, because she is right.

AI dream #10: the forgotten audio tape in Collemarino

Two pale and bold midgets wearing a red lipstick give me a small audio tape, one of those in use in the ‘90s to record voice mails. They tuck the cassette below a windscreen wiper in a white car parked in the main square of Collemarino.

It’s important that I take it, but I forget about it. As soon as I remember it, I go around the streets of Collemarino looking for it. Eventually, I find it.

Apologies for the use of "midgets", which I have learned in some cases could be perceived as offensive.
