Hello, 2015! Yep, the second month of it... (well, I did one photography post Jan 3). What better way to make a comeback than with some Internet Gold!
The other day my friend and my father asked me about something on websites I'm managing for them through Squarespace (which also hosts this lovely blog), and when I went to type out squarespace.com, I was pleasantly surprised.
What did I see, you ask? I saw the below screenshot.
"Is that Jeff Bridges?" Why yes, yes it is! That was also my first thought. Then I tilted my head at him being nested inside of himself and decided to listen to Squarespace's prompt to "See What Jeff Made" because, well, you can't not.
"What did Jeff make?" Oh, he made sleeping tapes (well, recordings- it's not 1992). "Wait, did you just say sleeping tapes?" Yep. The Dude made some very very trippy sleep recordings, which you can buy! It's for a good cause, too. 100% of the retail price from each album sold goes directly to No Kid Hungry. That's pretty righteous of you, Jeff.
With catchy titles like Dream. Sleep. Wake., where Jeff literally mutters a mantra of "dream, sleep, wake" that I don't think could ever help me fall asleep, and Ikea, where he transports the dreamer into a very odd world of him speaking in a creepy robot voice about contracting with space material, you can't but be interested in these dream recordings. My favorite part is where he randomly mentions Ikea. Ha, oh Jeff.
Basically, I think Jeff Bridges dropped some acid and walked around talking into his phone for however long. These are some of the craziest sleep recordings I think I've ever come across, BUT they're awesome! I could never actually sleep to this because I would just stay up listening to the weird shit that comes to Jeff Bridge's mind, but they are a treat.
Note: My friend mentioned that the tape eyes look a bit like Steve Buscemi. Gotta agree, they have the Buscemi vibe. Maybe Steve will join Jeff and make some tapes!
Oh, but this isn't all... there's also a video.
Enjoy this little bit of, Internet Gold!
