What does your imagination tell you right now? What do you imagine when you listen to music?

Currently imagining...

I'm currently imagining a flame dancer.

Sometimes my brain comes up with entirely random images. Sometimes I describe them out loud to entertain my roommates.
Posted by StickyWicket (Member # 7926) on :
where ideas can hang out, and do whatever.
Posted by Portabello (Member # 7710) on :
I'm thinking of beef....stew.

Yup, my imagination's busted.
Posted by Mike (Member # 55) on :
Mmmm, beef stew with mushrooms... large mushrooms. [Big Grin]

And skydiving.

Flamingos in cardboard boxes.
Posted by Farmgirl (Member # 5567) on :
I'm thinking of........... [Eek!] [Eek!] [Blushing]
Posted by SteveRogers (Member # 7130) on :
Right now? A moose with twelve antlers, machine guns for legs, arms made of wood, spaghetti for teeth, stomach tattoos that are of "Dubya's" face, punching some guy in the face, and the fact that they are flying through walls at a rate of 50,000 m/h. Aside from that? Nothing.
Posted by Papa Moose (Member # 1992) on :
I don't have any tattoos.
Posted by T_Smith (Member # 3734) on :
I imagine all the people living for today.

You may say I'm a dreamer, but really, I'm not the only one. I hope someday you'll join us. Cause then.... and only then, the world can be as one.

You're a dreamer. And don't try to project that attitude on the rest of the world. :)
Posted by advice for robots (Member # 2544) on :
Most of the time, I imagine the musicians playing the music in a small, intimate venue, and me sitting there enjoying it.
Posted by Alistair (Member # 7858) on :
Bah! You beat me to it T_Smith.
Posted by rivka (Member # 4859) on :
. . . you and me. It had to be.

So happy together.

I heard "imagine" by John Lenon, and i am dreaming of a deep blue eyes which look at me. I am dreaming of a sunny and sweet wmile just for me. I am dreaming of an agreable sensation of a nice hand on the mine, which rotate on the mine for a move during a rock dance. I am dreaming of a possibly futur.

That what i am dreaming now. [Smile]

I'm listening to Elton John, and seeing in my mind a mix of New York City streets with lots of people, a fire in a field, a harbour with a single sailboat, and I just got home from dance so I also still see my dancing feet going over their steps (which I shouldn't ever have been looking down at anyway). Very strange, these are all separate scenes but simultaneous.

Oh, and also, there's now a flamingo flying through thanks to Annie. [Smile]

But now by the time I finished typing this out it's all changed again!!

i'm imagining a universe where empires stretch from star to star and dead rulers have asteroids as their mounuments, sort of like the Egyptian pyramids.

What do you imagine when you listen to music?
Any music? My photography teacher sometimes had us do this activity to try to generate project ideas, or at least to get our imaginations going. She would play us an instrumental song twice. The first time, we just put our heads down, and closed our eyes, and imagined things to the music. The second time, we wrote down what we imagined. Anything you imagined. It could be a story, or flashes of images, or whatever the music made you think of. Mine were always stories, even if they didn't make sense. I loved that activity.

I'm imagining that I'm a bit of data and I'm trying to decide whether to be a One or a Zero the next time they try to read me.

Maybe I'll be 1/2...

Bwah ha ha ha ha ha...

I think A Perfect Circle's cover of Imagine captures the state of the world much more accurately than the original Beatles version.
Posted by Steev (Member # 6805) on :
For me it's always some expression of some emotional state with no images. If there ever is an image it picturing what the musicians look like as they are playing the instruments.
Posted by SteveRogers (Member # 7130) on :
Papa- I'm sorry. I meant that other moose. The one living in my house. It ate my muffins this morning.

Imagination says, " Ugly, little gnomes baking cookies that are poisoned in an attempt to take over the world. And then they team up with Wal-Mart and make their own evil corporation planet."
Posted by Raia (Member # 4700) on :
My imagination twists and turns every few minutes. [Smile]
Posted by Ryuko (Member # 5125) on :
I'm imaging what I'm going to say to my best friend now that her girlfriend's broken up with her. [Frown]
Posted by Raia (Member # 4700) on :
Awwwww. [Frown]
Posted by Enigmatic (Member # 7785) on :
I'm imagining that I'm not at work.
Also: monkeys.
