dream 

I was on tour with a young Basquiat-style visionary painter called Jesus the Magus who made giant paintings of spongebob and crazy frog and we would go around, he would show his paintings and I would give a speech about it. I was in the middle of saying "the thing about the Magus, and if you've ever met him you'll know what I'm talking about, is he's got this thing called the Jesus-vision..." when I fell off the stage

dream 

I remember one of his paintings extremely clearly, it was the meme spongebob where he's making a funny voice, a monumental recreation of it exclusively in shades of navy blue with very big chunky brushtrokes, like it was painted with a roller

I don't remember much about the Magus himself, he seemed a fairly self-effacing character. But that painting I remember so well. The spongebob bit was big but it was only about 1/4th of the canvas, at the bottom. Above spongebob the painting melded into abstract navy blue, in the same huge brushstrokes

@garfiald *sucks on pipe shaped vape* mainly that u want to return to childhood while also being pretentious about it

dream 

@chillallmen I never watched spongebob as a child though? I guess I watched spongebob the movie, but not the series

dream 

@garfiald could be the understanding as spongebob the cultural symbol and what it means to other people

dream 

@garfiald ahhh, lending an air of legitimacy to the weird online bs nobody cares about maybe

@garfiald @chillallmen gentlebies. Perhaps we should stop seeing this dream as a reason to look backwards, and think of it as a reason to look... forwards. I would like to put forth the hypothesis that this is actually a prophetic dream.

dream 

@LuigiEsq @garfiald i'd definitely change my name to jesus the magus and make this happen lmao

dream 

@chillallmen @garfiald well, first thing's first, do you have the Jesus-vision?
