I just had the most EPIC NAP OF ALL TIME, with the most intense and vivid dreams I’ve had in weeks, if not months.
In the dream, my dad offhandedly gave me a clue to Google search a TV movie from 1990 that was the cause of a recurring nightmare that I’d had for over twenty years. He only remembered the title, “Mister Johnson”, because it made him laugh for juvenile reasons. The nightmare was caused by the memory of a scene from the movie where this kid was chased by bullies into a phone booth and they trapped him all inside. Having finally seen the source of the nightmare, I was finally able to get over it. (Also, the movie was terrible.)
Then I woke up and went to work and tried to tell everyone about the dream while ringing up annoying customers… except one of my coworkers didn’t belong, I worked with her at Value City, not Kroger, so I knew it was a dream and woke up for real. Total Inception moment.
Then I just looked up that movie on IMDB just for the heck of it and OH MY GOD THERE WAS A MOVIE WITH THAT TITLE FROM THAT YEAR except it wasn’t a TV movie and the cast and plot have nothing to do with the dream but it’s still creepy cause I’ve never heard of it before.
I had another dream during the nap that was even weirder. I was at this aquarium that had all these freaky creatures like stingrays and squid and octopi, and they were all escaping their tanks and slithering along the ceilings and walls like a horror movie. I ran into Wendy from work and she was like, “oh, that’s cool” and I’m like, “THIS IS NOT COOL” and pulled a three-foot tentacle out of my mouth. I thought that only happened in hentai.
And there you have my delusional dream journal for the night.
I’ve spent over $2,000 of my own money on a new camera, equipment, costumes and props for this movie, at the expense of paying my rent and bills on time and living in anything resembling comfort. I really don’t think I’m asking for much here.
Just spent the last few hours updating my site, it’s all fancy now! http://www.badatom.com/
There are two film festival deadlines coming up in the next two weeks, and I really want to submit the film to both festivals. But in order to do that, I need more money! So buy a DVD! Buy some merchandise! Buy a download of the film! Or at the very least, spread the word!
