I dreamt that the radio station that is now KEXP evolved quite a lot differently, having never gotten the money from Paul Allen that they did, they were still KCMU and 100 watts, and that I had a current relationship to the station, knew on-air personnel and so forth.
The dream had a somewhat violent twist in that someone who was a less successful competitor in business (not that I’m rolling in success), hated me and at least left other people with the impression he wanted to kill me, he also shot up a place where I lived, didn’t shoot any people just vandalized structures.
I was looking for a new place to live when I got to talking to some people at the station about a huge spire of sorts on the north end of the UW campus. From the outside it resembled a tall skinny lighthouse but from the inside it had a top floor that had open windows all the way around at a height of about chest height and there were high resolution webcams pointed out in all directions. The floor below was a living facility and it was for lease so I leased it and moved in there.
It had the most awesome view anyone could ask for. The only downside was the living space was fairly small, maybe 12-foot round, and you had to climb 300 feet of stairs to get there. But the view was worth it and that’s what I most remember from the dream, looking out in particular to the South over Red Square and seeing the city skyline mostly below me was awesome. And I had access to all the web cams and associated computer equipment and I could readily visit the radio station.
Other than knowing someone had threatened to kill me, and for some reason I did not take the threat all that seriously, it was a fun cool dream.
