many years ago someone told me that i should curse and spit in the case of having ghost-on-bed kind of nightmare (sleep paralysis the doctors would say). since then i curse when it happens. and it works. and i realized that i always using dialect of lanzhou, my hometown, during this situation, despite i have been relocated to beijing since 1999. people who share a room or bed with me also told me that they hear that from time to time.
during this recording i have tried to perform more variations but finally have to admitted that i’m not a good swearer. the ghosts must feel boring.
