Carly’s Britney Disease Dream

posted by on April 27 at 10:25 AM

The Catch and U.S.E.’s Carly Nicklaus sent me this dream:

i had a dream the other night that i shaved my head with a razor. i looked in the mirror and saw that i looked exactly like britney spears and i was really sad. then this doctor that i had seen sat me down to give me my diagnosis, but as soon as he started talking my ears starting ringing with the loudest sound ever. and it sucked, because somehow i knew that he was trying to tell me that i had some terrible disease, but i couldn’t hear anything over the ringing in my ears. then i realized that the ringing was the sound of u.s.e’s keyboards, really loud and feeding back.


Let us loosely analyze:

To interpret:††

Britney Spears, a pop icon?, is everywhere we look with her shaved head.††Whether we like it or not, our subconscious sponge picks it up. It's not surprising that Carly, a musician who is submersed in pop culture and music, might have some of the Britney terror hype roll over into her unconscious.††I'm sure Carly's not the only person who has seen themselves with a shaved head in their dreams.

The media has bludgeoned us with Britney's bald ass head. Carly got sick of it.

Questions to ask:

Didn't Britney shave her head out of some sort of rebellion or need to do individualize?††Carly, have you been rebelling lately, or feeling the need to rebel or break free?††Are you "Li-ving in a material world, cause I am a material girl?"

The Doctor speaking and the ultra loud USE keyboard feedback - well, way loud feedback is a disease of its own.††And you've probably heard enough of it during USE sound checks, which could easily put an imprint on your brain.††But he was trying to tell you something about a disease you knew you had.††Was the disease that you had seen too much Britney?††Did you see her cooter, by the way, in those shots with Paris Hilton?

Also, what does Carly think about Britney?††And head shaving?††Maybe Carly has some other associations to Britney, and head shaving, or the doctor, or feedback?

Maybe Carly deeply desires to be a skinhead?††The act of defiance? Or just sick Britney?

Would love to know what Carly thinks about this. Tonight at Comet might be a bad time to ask her. It won't be loud in there or anything.
