    I have recently had ideas for many good threads in bed right before I fall a sleep but I have the hardest time recalling them next day at the PC. Fuzzy Moments ! :D
  2. be like a writter, carry around a tape recorder to record your ideas

    Yeah, do that or have a little notebook to jot your ideas down in. Then, with the newly remembered threads you'll sure pass Munji up in post counts. :D

    Actually, I find that intersting as well, since I seem to think about things that are really important to me, or how to fix problems in life right before I get to sleep. I should really write those down, since they seem to be great ideas....I just never remember em' :D

    I would simply get up and post honestly

    I keep a journal on my headboard next to my bible. I suggest you do something similar

    Get a laptop! I'm in bed and online right now; it's possibly the greatest experience ever.

  10. Even worse than having ideas in bed before you go to sleep, what about great ideas while you are sleeping! I dream up so many good story/movie ideas, and just plain great ideas in general. I really need to start making one of those sleep journals, but whenever I wake up I have very brooding thoughts. I wake up thinking "DIE ALARM CLOCK.. I DON'T WANT TO GO TO CLASS!..etc," rather than "hey that was an awesome dream, let me right that down."

    Good thing you added possibly in there. Get yourself a wife, and then you'll find out some other things WAY better to do in bed.

    It's certainly an idea !

    I have something better than a wife, a girlfriend. I prefer to do what you are talking about all over the house, rather than just the bed.

    Yesterday, I was listening to David Crosby on the radio. He said he got great song ideas right before falling asleep. He said it was a pretty well-documented phenomena among the creative types and all the posters suggesting notebooks/recorders/laptops are right on.

    Given the high quality and quantity of your fully-conscious threads, I'm looking forward to one of these twilight-time threads when the elves take over the Major's workshop.

    Whenever I think of new threads outside of TB, I usually end up scrapping the idea when it comes down to pulling the trigger...not because of any touchy issues, but because a lot of those ideas would make crappy threads. This is a consideration I wish a lot of folks would take when making their own threads on this and other forums.

    I was checking my "concepts" in my cellphone a couple of days ago and I saw that I had written down a dream I had. The dream contained: Yasmin, 60's clothing, Pink Floyd discussion, old school, crush.

    Very weird because it made perfectly sense when I wrote it down.

    things like this always pop into my mind, sometimes thread ideas but almost always song ideas. i carry around a notebook for this ideas in my backpack wherever i go and put it on my nightstand at night, along with a light up pen:D
