I had a dream last night that I logged in to find the topic:

"puke7 releases album: "Serene Jean started to jerk."

The music was mainly him atonally soloing with banjos and synths.

The most memorable BotB dream for me is when I got 8th place in an OHB.

There were only 7 participants.

two years ago i had a dream a serial killer joined botb and each of his entries were the names of his victims (the songs all had him talking over them saying how much better he was than everyone else)
 
 
100463
i had a dream that a major battle was announced and the rules were "songs must be over 10 minutes" and despite being up for only like two days, there were already four entries and all of them were like, REALLY good

and i got scared and woke up

Never had one but I just remembered last night I dreamt I was in a sort of amphitheatre with a synth controller with buttons, knobs and patch cables, everybody in the room had the same controller and we were taking turns controlling the synth and doing so improvising a cadavre exquis. It was the first time I played in front of an audience and it felt great.

in my dream, i tried to log into botb, but there was a bug which, for some reason, confused the user accounts, so i ended up on strobes account after logging in and some warning messages appeared.
i logged out and tried again, this time i wanted to take notes about every step so that i could write a proper bug report about it.
after logging in, i ended up on KatyPerryVEVO, a level 32 account with an ugly palette. than i woke up

Borrowed from a message I left a few years ago on Puke's page:

Last night I dreamed that you were doing a show near me in Seattle, so I went out to the venue and it was this weird tiny little office that had no business being a music venue. It was festooned with advertisements for the show, but I still wanted to make sure that it was the right place, so I asked the guy inside, "is puke7 going to be playing here tonight?" and he checked his list and couldn't find a "puke7" and then I was like "wait no, Baron Knoxburry, is Baron Knoxburry going to be here?" and he was like yeah :D

I have this recurring dream where there's some major going on and I look in my folders and there's some hidden folder which feels like it's a long lost project folder from a long dead hard drive. It's got like a few bad renders of mp3 files, an ftm and a bbsong. It's always some mix of famicom 5B and beeper, but they're separate parts because, in dream logic, I had problems controlling the volume of my speaker so I didn't want to work on the 5B ftm with the loud buzzer effects. The beeper part sounds amazing though like some wow pedal'd fm bass patch, playing through beeper. The ftm render always sounds just like my fcm10 song and then I close it out being embarrassed that I didn't render the right thing.

There's other super secret files in that folder but I never get to listen to them in the dream. I wake up sad that there's no recovered folder of old incredible projects to listen to/work on.

[edit: related dream]
There's other dreams where I'm also trying to work on something for a compo made in ejay for ps2
. It plays hyper fast like a 900BPM ftm and of course, it's crazy and sounds incredible. I'm always super proud of myself for pushing that program to make something that great. But again, I wake up sad and hyper fast songs aren't a thing in ps2 ejay.

weird, i saw a botb dream last night too. the shop was fully implemented, and the site felt much more like a browser rpg, sorta like kingdom of loathing. there were some "skills" you could buy which changed the power of the votes you recieve in xhbs for a certain amount of time.
i decided to log in and check the site today, only to see the taxman's message.

i just had a botb dream where:

- you could optionally upload a font along with your major entry, and the entry title would then be displayed in that font

- one of the chip majors had a sub-theme of "some botbr (maybe chip champion?) vs. strobe" and one of them was sponsored by toyota rav 4, and the other one by honda crv

Holy f, I literally had a dream about this site yesterday - apparently, BOTB existed as an alternate universe, similar to how VRChat works but instead of avatars, everyone was giant cubes of their own profile picture and there was this huge arena in which people could submit their songs, but the only ones that ended up winning were people that had been on the site for years.

had a nasty one. I rushed to render and upload an entry on time, but as the clock was ticking down and I was accruing a late penalty, I was unable to figure out which battle to navigate to to submit. I finally found it and hit the upload prompt, but then I had the same problem: I couldn't figure out which song on my drive was the one I just rendered. so i was opening songs one-by-one on my slow computer desperate to figure out which it was, with the media player crashing and everything wrong happening. at this point I was desperate to get it into the battle at all, even with the full late penalty. i woke up with that mild panic feeling I get from bad dreams

I had a dream where Tom Hanks became a botb mascot. He travelled around the world in one of those airplanes that can float on water and whenever someone posted a comment including the word "milk", he would show up to that person's house, pour cartons of 2% on his hands and then rub them in that person's hair.
In the dream I posted this comment and became his next victim

a few weeks ago i had a dream where puke7 had bought all this crazy land in arizona that was covered in cliffs and mesas and other formations, and on it he built a (very dangerous) battle of the bits amusement park, where everyone was having a good time. there was a huge slide carved into a big spire (like literally bored into the rock), and there were very intimidating coasters to test your fortitude! almost everything was made out of that painted metal mesh that childrens' playgrounds are made from, all yellow and red and blue

also as the proprietor of this amusement park, puke called himself "Langelis" and i would like to give thanks to my brain for doing pun work while i sleep

Just had a dream that Vladimir Putin joined botb. We had an allgear OHB while he was logged in that got four participants. His entry was just one of my recent OHB songs but bandpass filtered. He also added a stock trip-hop drum loop and constant wind-chimes, both mixed really low. We wanted to abide by botb rules and give him all 1s and ailment for an illegal entry, but to do so was apparently going to cause a stir internationally.

No resolution, unfortunately. I went outside to think what to do and then something involving unmanned drone lawnmowers took command of the plot.

there was a time when i'd have dreams where i was just, like, on irc, and at the time i was on botb irc a lot, so i probably had botb irc dreams

but at the time schallwelle was a new member and i still actually used the name kinkinkijkin anywhere but here and twitter

idk i probably dreamed that schallwelle called puke7 a knee dimple and then got perma'd on the spot or sth back then

lately i had a dream where i made the coolest music ever and posted it to botb and made botb famous and i went to put it in my computer but it was shut off and by the time it booted and it was in a tracker irl i forgot the dream and just diddled random doodles for 5 minutes then watched funny youtube for 10 hours

i dreamed that NardInYourYard submitted an entry to YEA VIDEOGAME that was just like a 5+ minute long drum solo. i was able to download the .flp project file for some reason, which i opened up and found every single drum sample on its own separate channel, intricately sequenced. the only effect plugin used was something on the master named "Fruity FullSound EX" which somehow made the SNES samples sound like this drum solo was recorded on a real set in a huge rock concert arena type place. it was crazy

I don’t often remember dreams, but did last night - for today’s Advent, Kleeder gave us a zip bitpack which had 6 text files with enigmatic messages in them. I couldn’t figure out what to do with them but I wanted to use them all in some way as a thanks to a few botbrs. The day’s format was Genesis (I think?)

I had this weird dream where I went to this collective of FM musicians and then we all ended up fighting with weapons that resembled the FM soundchips we primarily write on and all I remember is that I ended up having to confront Abstract for some reason and then the dream ended right as we struck our weapons

Literally what

Edit:
Now I just remembered what weapons I and Abstract wielded in that dream: It was an OPLL batter/blade hybrid and a YM2203 shield that I had, and Abstract was donning a YM2612 mech suit with a YM2151 katana type affair

Okay. Last night's was a weird one... it came about because I was reading Kleeder's 2HB suggestion thread the other day.

Basically, in my dream I had decided that I was going to host an SPC 2HB. I had never hosted or participated in a 2HB before but I had come up with the brilliant idea that if there was a risk of me losing over 1k boons, I was going to "crowdfund" the battle.

So what I had done was set up this strawpoll post to gauge interest in the battle before hosting. Essentially it was this multi-page poll with questions like "What is your BotB username?", "Would you be interested in a 2HB at [scheduled time]?", "What format would you like?" ,"Would you be willing to put in a deposit of 200.0 boons to help host the battle?" etc etc.

Eventually it came time to host the 2HB and I had amassed 1100.0 boons. I thought "Alright, this should be enough. Time to host the battle!"

There was just one problem, however. As mentioned earlier, I had never hosted a 2HB before up until this point, only OHBs. I had no idea what the process for hosting 2HBs entailed, but as it turns out--in true BotB fashion--it was not straightforward at all. Things were about to get wacky.

I was suddenly transported to some sort of BotB warehouse. I don't know how or why I got there, but I was no longer looking at the BotB website in front of my computer. You know how it looks like when you walk into a store like Home Depot, being greeted with a huge warehouses with shelves lined up toward the back and row of registers in the front? Yeah, it looked like that. Except the registers were completely empty with nobody attending to them, and the shelves were lined up with BotB themed stuff.

I was at the heart of BotB. The physical manifestation of the site itself. I looked around and saw control panels with buttons and switches for various BotB site functionality: "Edit profile", "Change palette". There were bulletin boards hung from the ceiling which showed the latest entries posted to the site in realtime. I kept looking.

Eventually, I found what it is I was looking for: I came face-to-face with what looked to be some large shelf or box underneath a large tarp. I removed the tarp to uncover what was hidden underneath. Staring at me was a large, rectangular button, the size of a small table, with the words written in large letters: "Host 2HB"

Aha, there it is! I pushed it--it took a bit of force to depress the button and I had to use both of my hands. I waited a couple of seconds... nothing. I pushed it again. Still nothing. I'm not sure what I expected, I thought that maybe some sort of countdown timer would appear, or there would be some sort of fanfare, but nothing happened. I knew something wasn't right.

I turned my head and looked to my left and I saw some sort of kiosk--like one of those self-serve or self-checkout station kiosks, except what was on the monitor was... BotB? I walked over to the monitor and noticed that the page had my palette. Somehow, I was already logged in here. I looked at what was on the screen and I saw the following message:

"ERROR: You need 1,000.0 döne to host a 2HB."

What the hell was Döne??

At this point, I was panicking. It had been about 30 minutes since the scheduled time I was planned on hosting this battle. People were waiting. The @s on Discord were piling up. Gradually, people were becoming less interested in joining. "I can't waste everyone's deposit", I thought. "I can't lose all these boons!"

I began using the kiosk to browse BotB as normal. I found a lyceum page on BotB currencies. I clicked it. As it turns out, while I had been away from BotB for a few years, puke had implemented a second type of currency.

There were the boons, and then there were the döne.

Now, get this, one döne was worth... exactly the same amount as one boon! The only difference described by the lyceum was that the döne was implemented to be used specifically for hosting 2HBs and 4HBs. At this point, I was furious. "What is even the point?!" I thought. Well, alright. So 1,000 döne is 1,000 boons. Great, I have more than that. Now the question is how do I convert them?

As it turns out, in order to exchange boons for döne, I had to download and install some program from the lyceum page on my local machine, and use that program to upload some sort of file which would apparently verify my exchange??

So I began to do that...

...

And unfortunately, I don't remember what happened after that. I think maybe I woke up, or perhaps I drifted into some other unrelated dream. And thus, the story of Jimmy and the 2HB ends on a cliffhanger.

That ended up being longer to type out than I expected. I dunno what the meaning behind this dream was. Maybe the solution to the 2HB issue is to implement a new BotB currency, or encourage crowdfunding battles as the new meta. Who knows. I guess the moral is to be prepared before you try to host a battle.

In any case, now I'm craving döner kebab. I think I might order some this weekend.

tl;dr - Tried to host a 2HB. Ended up in a weird BotB warehouse and couldn't host it because my boons were in the wrong currency.

I was riding my bike through my town on a nice day, and I got stopped on the sidewalk by a guy wearing a hoodie that just said "damifortune" on the front. I rode around him and then this guy also hopped on a bike and started chasing me, I'm not sure why. Dream ended when I crashed into a car door trying to get away. Does this count as a botb dream?

Damifortune fans are commonly known for being street thugs and ruffians, so this one seems logical

I'm not, so i was trying to clear it up, but then someone anonymously started hacking into botb to add me into obscure places and caused a mandela effect where people swore that i'd always been a member and had everyone arguing with each other while I was desperately trying to convince everyone it wasn't me, and that it was just a coincidence. but their profile kept linking back to mine no matter how many times the links and code were changed, and when I eventually uploaded my first entry it somehow ended up being the exact same song the fake delita first uploaded to botb. I woke up in feeling extremely frustrated that they beat me to it, rather than scared that they somehow knew what I would make years in advance, and that I recreated a song i'd never heard before.
(the song was a project I wrote lyrics for but never made)

i was in some kind of insane bullethell dungeoncrawler game where i had to fight sculpture major submissions because they ended up as actual sculptures in my city. the most fearsome enemy was the one made by ___, who was actually a professional sculptor irl. then some "buy this for me" quest happened with a rich lady, who was probably related to the sculptures thing. then i was in totk doing some weird ultrahand thing and stealing a giant's bowtie for blower5.

after scrolling thru the botb discord users, i still dont know who ___ was. felt like a married botbr with a twink personality

I had a dream I was teaching music again and told my students to sign up for botb. Every battle that happened after they signed up was visuall and I was getting frustrated because I couldn't demonstrate how it would help them learn to write. Every time I tried to host someone unfamiliar would swoop in and host visuall. I opened one votpack and Lincent had submitted a zip file. Every image inside was named "linc" "lince" "linc e" "lncnt" but all other users on the site were new and didn't realize how close to naming the submission after the account name that was, letting Lincent run free and un-ailed.

in my dream i was watching a video or a movie or something where there was a long shot of this bright red old car. you know how cars have that metal lettering that usually says the model of the car? this one said "56" on the side, and the movie focused so much on that, for like several seconds, that i felt like it was winking and nodding at me. i rushed to grab a picture of it so i could tell kleeder.

another one that's only tangentially related to botb (because albatross has hosted a series about it) - in my dream, "horse" was an actual genre of music and i was going to a horse show. i even had a friend playing in it. i overheard someone while i was walking to the venue talking about my friend's act, prattling off a list of like 5 subgenres that he thought were more applicable than simply "horse". i don't remember the subgenre names but the guy was like "you know, it's more like x, or y, or z - more chill and laid back"

Looking back at the VRF2 major still in the voting period, I remembered dreaming I hadn't finished voting on all the entries in the major I entered. And so, I fell asleep. I woke up, the resluts were announced, and I noticed that I'm in the last place. And I think I didn't get badgered.

This night, I had my first botb related dream.

I was watching a slice and life anime about two woman who enjoy going to bars to have drinks. So I'm watching the first episode, the opening plays and in the first scene, the two women are still high schoolers. It's the morning and they're rushing to the school entrance because they are late (from the opening and the uniform they're wearing, I think the scene takes place in Japan but it strangely looks a lot like Paris). There is a man with a tuxedo and sunglasses (like in men in black) in front of the school who ask them what they want. After a bit of an argument, they manage to get in. Then they go to their class but the tuxedo man is following them in the distance.

So they enter the classroom, everyone is here but the lesson didn't begin yet. Shortly after, tuxedo man enter with a woman and a student boy. There is a lot of agitation. I don't remember why but at this moment I knew this is an expensive private school and everyone hates the managers/administration. In the ruckus the woman announce that due to the departure of the director, is son (the boy that entered with her) was chosen to be the new director.

After that, all the students in the classroom are shouting even louder and they are now booing. I don't remember why but from the perspective of the high schoolers, this was clearly a low and despicable decision from the school. After booing for some time, the students start repeating: F for [the boy's name (I don't remember it)]! F for [the boy's name]!, as it's clear that by accepting to be the new director, he signed the death warrant of his social life*.

Then as a spectator watching the anime, I thought to myself: channel F lol :) But at this very moment, I became the boy of the anime! Taking advantage a the chaos, I took a red chalk and tried to draw the channel F icon on the board just behind me. As I do so, I sense a great force restraining my actions, as if it was the plot itself that was preventing me to do something so incoherent with the lore of the anime. Moreover, I don't know why but I took the chalk with my left hand and rather than switching hands, I'm drawing the whole icon with my left hand.

When the student finally calm down, I only managed to do a very distorted channel F icon and instead of simply writing a letter F there is a P and a F inside (for no reason). Nobody notices it. Very disappointed that I wasn't able to do my funny joke, I go to take a seat in the back of the room while thinking I will have to find another solution in the other episodes of the anime to repair my broken reputation. I woke up from the dream while searching a seat.



* F is used here as a reference to the "press F to pay respect" meme

there was a battle where botbrs had to eat a bunch of red and blue takis, then smear the taki dust from their fingers onto a napkin into the loblast icon, and then mail that to pumpuli living in ann arbor.

the prizes were like:
1st place: a special holographic version of the bleepler, with every botbr's autograph on it
2nd place: something to do with blue feathers and water bottles and gay wolves, idk it wasnt that appealing even tho i like wolves
3rd place: a literal bronze rifle with the words "NAND" etched onto its stock

i won but instead of th hologrpahic bleepler i got 20 small wood carvings of joltik that looked like they were painted over with oil >:c

I had a simple dream of me just doing the dishes, almost in a cartoonish fashion (like soapy bubbles everywhere, just scrubbing everything by hand and with the yellow gloves) but for some reason F-F-Froze was playing from somewhere and I didn't know where. I wasn't bothered cause I like the song but it was just playing and I couldn't stop it.

I was in a desert, taking a tour of old billboards. As we walked around the billboards, bees began to gather, clinging to my body. I realized they were attracted to the moisture of my sweat. Oddly, I did not feel fearful at all, because I knew these bees were benign and would not harm anyone. Then I remembered that all this had already happened once before...

10 years ago, there was a live Kulor chiptune concert in this very desert, when everybody started panicking about the bees. Kulor tried to save us with a tactical air strike from his helicopter. Unfortunately, that just made the bees mutate into angry super bees and start attacking everyone. It was a huge disaster.

And now, oh no, Kulor was coming soon for another concert! I had to avert this disaster from happening again! I managed to contact Kulor via twitter. Suddenly I was in my old house (dream logic) and the doorbell rang. To my surprise, it was a young boy who looked to be no older than 12. "Hi, I'm Kulor."

"Nice to meet you, I'm agargara. That's strange, I thought I saw your concert 10 years ago, but I must have been confusing you with a different chiptune artist."

I told him the story about the bees, assured him the bees were friendly, and asked him not to use any air strikes during his concert. He agreed. The End.

BotB was a farm that we all worked at and Puke7 was a redneck farmer. There was a neighboring property with 2 cows that we grew crops for and I started working there part time and had to play music to soothe the cows on a crusty old electric piano. But then my shift took longer than scheduled and I didn't get to BotB farm in time for a battle so I was sad :(

Then kleeder had recently done a sapx2 ohb as a swansong to the format. 5 people entered and 4 got a score less than 20 and kleeder got a 37.975 .

alright when I saw this thread originally I was like "oh ha ha who's really out there having dreams about a website" AND THEN -

last night I dreamt I was traveling somewhere in the midwest of the US, and met up with this guy - super tall skinny black dude with eyeglasses with circular lenses.

We met up at a kid's playground at night, I think because we were going to smoke some weed, and I was trying to brag about the music I'd been making, he was like, "oh have you heard about this website called Battle Of The Bits?"

now that I think of it, tall skinny dark skinned dude... maybe it was a vision from Anansi? Does the trickster god have an alt here, does anyone know??
