    I've been told that if you can't sleep after an hour or so then you should get up and read or whatever then try again later.

    We're thinking about moving, and I went to bed last night at 11:15 pm and laid awake for about two hours thinking about what a pain in the ass it will be to relocate all my vinyl and cds, which ones I should keep and which I should try to sell before the move, which used record stores I'd take them to, how I would get them to the stores, which days would be the best to sell, how much the stores would give me for them, etc.

    Couldn't turn it off, brutal.

    I just made a pretty good argument for streaming, huh?

    There are loads of pros to streaming but there's also the risk that the stuff you're into gets pulled or simply never gets uploaded. There's also the thing of it being an unsustainable for the artists unless they're already wealthy.

    Corpsey's top three tips for insomniacs

    1. Give yourself at least an hour to fall asleep. (I usually need a 10 hour window to get 8 hours sleep.)
    2. Don't have a visible clock around. It's better not to know the time.
    3. Earplugs.

    Anyone sleep on their back? I've always found it really awkward.

    i had a five second dream that woke me up. i was staring at a frisbee gliding through clear blue sky, in the end it hit me on the head and then i woke up, my body shaking from the "impact". i think it's because of the societal paralysis topic and reading about agency in another book that i'm currently going through. i should have just took a step aside, or catch the frisbee with my hands.

    Falling out of bed is pretty good for that.

I don't feel that bad for it, but maybe all the sleep debt's building up, ready to hit me hard one day...

    Some nights, I'll be knackered around 11.30pm and looking forward to sleep, but then I get my head down...and get this sudden energy surge and want to listen to music, or start making 'urgent' Brexit stockpiling lists (which never get followed up on the next day). Like insomniac procrastination or something.

    Sleep that knits up the raveled sleave of care,
    The death of each day's life, sore labor's bath,
    Balm of hurt minds, great nature's second course,
    Chief nourisher in life's feast

    I try. I'm a classic insomniac, who was it who said "I wish I had more sides to lie on"? That's me.

    I didn't sleep at all last night, just lay in bed staring at the wall which somehow turned to imagining this writhing mass of tentacles coming out of the sea over and over. They weren't attached to anything or part of a creature, just this expanding fleshy thing like a growing blood spot or ink in water. The closest thing I can think of is the ending of Akira when Tetsuo's body mutates.

    I try not to because I snore when I do that. I think I would if left to my own devices though.

    I slept ten hours last night. Weird dreams too. I haven't drunk for a month so I think my brain is starting to repair itself a little bit.
