Following kylegirl's revelations of her dreams (involving my alleged friend, Fabrisse!), I had a strange dream of my own which is still driving me mad. I dreamed that I was in the Tower Records in the rackety shopping centre in Harvard Square (where I haven't been for about five years), and I was taking advantage of being in a large-ish American music shop to find lots of albums unavailable or hard to find over here. I was looking for a Helium album which I don't have (so far, so stupidly realistic), and for the Spells e.p. which I only have in taped form (ditto), and then I found myself looking for an album by Mary Timony's (imaginary) "other band" whose name, I knew in the dream, began with M. But I couldn't remember the name of the band, and it started driving me mad. By the time I woke up (at which stage the Tower Records had grown a food section and I was carrying around a handful of brown rice - any Jungians want to explain that one?), I was in a frenzy of frustration trying to remember the name of this non-existent band. I was still thinking about it when I woke, and it took me about five minutes to realise that Mary Timony doesn't have another band beginning with M. Except maybe she does, and I just can't remember....

I did, in my dream, find a Throwing Muses album which I didn't know existed (because, um, it doesn't). So my imagination wasn't just tormenting me....

Tower Records in Havard Square? There's only one shopping center I know of in Harvard Square, and I don't think there's a Tower Records in it, but then again, since I pretty much never buy music, I could be wrong.

Hmmm, I suppose it wasn't really Harvard Square; it was down the road (JFK Street?). The shopping centre I'm thinking of wasn't big and glossy, it was just a unit with a few pseudo-hipster clothes shops and a pizza place and a branch of Newbury Comics. It was kind of opposite the Urban Outfitters, near that little park - if that makes any sense? My memory of Cambridge geography is a bit dodgy at this stage! But now I come to think of it, the Tower wasn't in that shopping place - I think it was behind Wordsworth books. Oh, now I'm very confused. But there's definitely a Tower in Cambridge - or there was 5-7 years ago!

re: throwing muses
I found out last night that a really close friend of mine, who is on LJ, was Kirsten Hersh's personal assistant for two years!! And used to stay in her house and borrow her car when she was out of town!! How did I never know this before?

He thinks extremely highly of her, by the way.
