My dream of Ken Russell and the Amises

Oddest dream I had last night. Ken Russell is up a ladder painting various full-length portraits on a huge, long billboard. My attention turns to Martin Amis and his late dad Kingsley standing together not far away in the street. They both take out their dicks and masturbate over a drain (separately but in sync). Martin then pulls away from the drain but morphs into a small alligator. His father fondly lifts Martin's tail and dabs him where's he's still a little damp. Can't work out this dream. Must be the drugs.

Cool. Who's your dealer?

Wow, this is what can be called a homoerotic dream, I guess. Martin Amis might use it in his next novel, or Ken Russell in his next "experimental" movie.

No - very uncool. Eat coal and have a cold shower.

My dream wasn't in the least erotic despite the sexual content. I'm sure it's a dream of significance - why did Mart turn into an alligator?

<< why did Mart turn into an alligator? >>

It seems quite natural to me : aren't drains the best place in town for alligators ? Especially London drains, which are reputed to be the most cocaine-fuelled drains in the world. Alligators have large nostrils, you know.

God, and I thought MY dreams were bad.

Great dream! Amis junior IS a whole lot like a crocodile, I think, though crocodiles as ancient symbols mean wisdom and the jury’s out on whether Martin has it.

A crocodile’s often interpreted as wisdom in anyone’s dreams, anyway, so that’s nice from your personal point of view. I think Ken Russell signifies anarchy on the ascendant (not astrological ascendant). He is attempting at insight into life, trying to make order from the anarchy and reduce life to gentle basics.

I feel Amis pere and fils may equal your older and younger self – growing up, repairing damage, refining the crocodile.

I think it's about your anxieties over having a mini-me - there's a father and son there and yet they are spending their seed into the drain. The rest of the dream is about fame seeking etc. while those that wank around don't have/lose their children who become extinct (prehistoric) inhuman monsters (or alligators)
