Takara, nightmare terminator~

Although I will never buy it, the Takara dream workshop sounds wicked. It says the toy can direct your dream with the person you want to see and the story you expect to happen. Well, although I respect the technology and idea of the producer, it sounds a 'dream formula' to me, with assimilation to the film formula in Adorno's cultural industry theories. It will be very boring if our last little creativities saved in the subcounsciousness would be deprived as well.

Yi Shu the Hongkongese romantic fictionist lamentated 'Tight, hold me tighter' as for the untouchable phenomena created in a dream as the title for the story she wrote in 1999. It was a story about a dream factory where all its customers are addicted going constantly. The protagonist finally chose to refuse the service and went back to normal human life. I believe if all the dreams are too good, we would tend to live in the dream rather than reality, that's anti-social and psycho!!

Although I got upset by nightmares sometimes, dream workshop sounds more scary to me. I believe the nightmares originated from my worries and fears and I can keep myself away from them by own inward power.

  1. Have you seen Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind? It's scarier than a designer dream!

  2. haha, yeah, I've seen it twice. Fortunately I am still a romanticist that the enduring love can easily get me away from the fearing of future evil inventions. :D I love the part when they were fighting against the memory eraser, was deeply touched for the power of love.

    That's why I couldn't agree when someone said Truemen Show was better than Eternal Sunshine on Spotless Mind. At least I would say the latter would win with its excellent narration. But anyway, none of them is my favorite :)
