It's a mashup of Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Will and Grace, where Will is backstage at a fashion show and he's in love with a makeup artist, played by Bill Hader as Stefon the club kid from SNL.  Makeup artist is telling Will he can't be backstage and Will is casual about it until he looks in a wall mirror and realizes he's got the only reflection in a room full of models.  There are dressing  tables in the room and the camera pans across the room you see the absence of reflections on those as well.  Fran Drescher plays the head vampire who was based on Janice Dickinson.

Yes, well.  Not sure what to blame for this.

Last nights:
Class reunion in a school that wasn't mine, but with classmates who were.  DS is the standout classmate in the dream and she was the she of the late eighties.  There was also a walk in Downtown Portsmouth where a place of worship had been converted into an ice cream stand.
Night before last's:
At my childhood home.  I have a pet red panda.  I don't keep him in a cage.  I say hello to next door neighbor, but he disappears.  I then remark on how he used a cantenna to pickup a satellite movie channel.

There's snow.  At the mall, a store run by a friend of mine, DK, is running a contest for the best snow, so I take her some in a tupperware container.  When I get there, the lights are out in some stores, including the drop off point, which is in a Montgomery Wards- which isn't her store.  She works for a kiosk, but what this mall does is put all the kiosk operators in the same store behind a counter.
I leave the mall to go home and walk to my vehicle, a white pick up truck.  They're digging up a tree nearby, cable had gotten tangled in its roots.  The snow is gone from outside.  A man walks up to me and makes a cryptic comment and holds out his hand.  In it is a knotted piece of cable and dirt.

Three dreams.
First:   I was the companion to Peter Capaldi's Doctor, from Doctor Who, and we're running from A to B, as they do, but I stop outside a gate that's framed with telephone poles and I put heavy, seventies style belt buckles on the poles.  The buckles are decorated with guns and I figure they will stand as a warning.   He asks what I'm doing and I'm telling him I'm making this a haunted place that people will avoid so we can come back later and use it for something.

Second:
Road trip... I'm at some sort of state run roadsite rest stop or attraction.  It has arcade style computer games.

Third... I was with Perry and... damn.  It was so vivid but now it's faded.  I should do this before anything else clutters my brain.  There was a jacket.  In the pocket was a broken laser pointer and a straight razor.

And now I've forgotten it.  Can you really forget a something that wasn't real to start with?

Dream:
I'm at a Cowboy Junkies concert.  It's in a Hall of some sort.
Before the concert, we watch some sort of movie about politics in Africa, like Cry Freedom. There's a scene in the movie where animals are going through a gate and they're a mix of CGI, real and animated stuffed animals.
After the movie, there's an intermission where the band sells snacks and has gifts for the attendees.  I'd picked up a dvd but someone had taken the disc out.  They said I could replace it from one of the other gifts and I looked at the table and there was a box with a shirt, tie and HST yellow Raybans but I really wanted one of their dvds.  Then I talked to Margo Timmins and she was excited about meeting someone from GWAR- this must have been Norfolk because Righmond was their next stop.
I wander into another room and people are talking. I had asked someone to take a picture of me with Ms Timmins after the concert with my phone. The converstations stop with the blinking of lights theatre style.
I go back into the main area where the seats for the movie have been replaced with benches for the concert.
I find one in the second row... and just as the convert is about to start, my alarm went off.
Also Justin and Lindsey were there.

Earlier I'd also had a dream about watching Scooby Doo.  It was an old episode but it was done in a different style (in the opening of the show, they had images of the monsters from the series, done slightly different than they were in the episodes- this was the style the episode was done in, like this robot:

I was explaining Tzatziki sauce to someone while an episode of a Star Trek tv show was on a big screen tv.  But I wasn't a show I recognized; it was set on a space station- like the old school kind, and someone had hacked the systems and someone had gotten hurt when the lifts malfunctioned.

One of the people I was talking with mentioned he was a caterer and he's prepare the sauce with a garnish of spiral cut cucumber.
--
Last week I listened to an NPR article on savory yogurts.  I'm sure that bears partial blame.

I was walking through an art gallery with a Ziggy Stardust era David Bowie, discussing his next conceptual incarnation.  We encountered the mayor of whereever we were, who was also Eartha Kitt, who'd just counted the votes and informed him he'd be wearing be wearing earth tones in his next look.
--
The publisher Taschen has a photography book coming out on Ziggy Stardust; I know this because they also have a free magazine/catalog that's stunning and the Spring/Summer issue arrived a couple of days ago.

I dreamt I was on a Gordon Ramsey cooking show and I had made him a roast beef sandwich with a spicy chocolate sauce.  And by sauce I mean I took  buffalo spicy dressing and mixed it with chocolate syrup.  Over what was essentially an Arby's sandwich.

I was certain I was going home, but then it was time for the judging and the person I was competing against didn't show up.  I was going to win by default.

...then I woke up.

I have NO idea where this one came from

I'm working at a bookstore in a mall, even though it's run by my indie bookstore boss. Apparently, I'm an airplane pilot and I've flown into where ever the mall is. I go to the mall with some friends who are passengers on the flight and when I get to the mall, my old boss tells me she needs me, so I fill in for the duration of the layover. While working at the mall, I somehow lose the piece of paper that serves as a temporary pilot's license- a 3x5 yellow receipt with my information in purple carbon writing. I'm looking for it and my friends walk by the shop and offer me a ride back to the plane in their cab. I have to tell my boss I'm leaving and she ignores me til the last minute, and after she says "OK!" annoyed at my leaving, I run after my friends trying to catch up with them.

And then I woke up.

I dreamed I was
in a production of The Cradle Will Rock in the black box theater at ODU.  It was only a chorus role, but something had happened to one of the principles and since I was so familiar with the show via the movie, I got the part.
--
How odd.  I never had acting desires in college, preferring to help with house management, though The Cradle Will Rock would not have been out of place at the Stables, with its Brechtian influences- they did Brecht's The Good Woman of Setzuan as well as Sophie Treadwell's expressionistic drama Machinal while I was there.  The funny thing about the dream is I got my role because of my familiarity with the movie, which wasn't released until nine years after I'd left ODU.

i remember hearing an audio announcement that Golda Meir won an award as a character and unreliable narrator for a Nelson DeMille novel .I dreamed I was in a  Mall.  those rides that would go in circles, like low rent carousels, with plastic and fiberglass animals, those could move freely across the floor.  there were mercenary assassins like in comic books: one drove an ice cream truck, the other was doing it for his little sister.  I has to talk to one of them by climbing a tree.  there was a fantasy city in the middle of the real world where I had to stand on the wall of the city and step backward off the wall in order to return to the real world of the mall.
--
earlier dream:  in an episode of SVU.  I know it's an episode, I'm breaking the fourth wall.  A little girl has killed her father buy blowing up their apartment with butane lighters.  the one person besides me who knows the truth is terrified of her.  he talks to me while shes in the lobby getting a delivery of potatoe chips.  I'm in a red office in an elevator and I'm talking to detective Olivia from svu.

At the funeral of the father of a classmate from elementary school. It's at the church I went to in my teens. People from high school are there.
There's excavation going on outside the church and a woman is screaming at a homeless person about how he can't sleep in the furrows. I go to wait for us to be called into the chapel, we're waiting in one of the children's Sunday school rooms. I go to the washroom and when I come back everyone is gone.

I'm in a class, algebra or freaky math involving letters and formulas and the teacher wants us to do the even problems, 20-80, with the help of a classmate. The one I'm assigned is talkative and even though I could do the problems easily, I still don't finish on time because of her prattling.

I'm at the home of a woman. I ask her to let me know when she's moving out because I want to photograph the house without furniture.

--
I have no idea what any of this means. The funeral was for the father of someone I haver encountered in over 20 years outside of friend of a friend on facebook.

Just woke up from a crazy dream- I was in Disney World, running around the property like Eloise at the Plaza. It was the night before I was leaving on a trip to Japan and I was trying to get things taken care of before I go. And then I realized my passport was here in Virginia with Perry. That freaked me out- enough to wake up!

Dream:
Working at a weird hybrid of the indy store and the mall store. I hear a gurgling noise from behind a bookshelf; moving it I see a crack in the wall with water streaming from it. The shelf blocking it was all that kept the leak in check and moving the shelf causes the wall to burst, flooding the store. I go and find the owner and she blames me for the leak. She goes off to do something and I start to complain to her assistant manager and the AM tells me she doesn't want to argue about it while I'm trying to explain to her why it wasn't my fault.
--
The indy store I worked at actually had real bad leaks from the ceiling to the degree that we had plastic drop cloths to cover the shelves with during heavy rains. If I recall correctly, this had something to do with the putting green the lawfirm upstairs had installed on a rooftop patio.


Bookshelves next to walls in bookstores aren't that easy to move. Ok, there pretty darn impossible to move.

Dream: back in Norfolk, somehow involved in a play production in an abandoned church downtown. It's a Greek tragedy, but a modern take on it, the sparse set made up of statues and lighting effects. One statue I
remember, I call it Rodin's The Gates of Hell, despite looking nothing like it. Ex-coworker and facebook pal Justin is somehow involved- acting maybe?
there's also a special lighting effect of an angel that the crew has been flashing in the sky and that's got the homeless population of Norfolk freaked out.
--
Not sure what play was being put on, but I know it was a classic. There was a Julie Taymor without the puppets vibe to the whole thing.

Dream: I was watching tv and a commercial for a re-staged Lion King came on. Instead of any of the songs from the show,they were singing a new one: "Turn Off the Light."
--
Not sure what inspired the dream, but I think it had something to do with Taymor's cursed project Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark.

Dream:
Just woke up from it.  At a theme park, attending a murder mystery musical with audience participation..
The theater was tricked out so things in the story, like rain, generated effects in the audience- like a light sprinkler system coming on.
People knew about it, so it was part of the enjoyment, not a surprise.
I was there twice, once for  Elsa Lanchester's last show, and during that I got an invitation card to come back to participate.
Somehow, since I was on my own, my seat was right at the foot of the stage.
It's a long show, so they only do one once a day.
The invitation has a little bit of script to learn, the invitees play witnesses to the crime.
When they call the witnesses out of the audience- up some stairs to stage right, you give your invitation to a cast member, I was the last person arriving and hadn't given my card to her; she was ushering the invitees up on to their section of the stage.  She didn't keep the invitations, she scattered them into the air.  I threw my card away as I followed her onstage.
I end up going into the wrong place and I'm somehow at an shop, and the lead actor is asking me if I have any trays to hold papers on his desk.
I show him what we have and he makes a snarky remark about the quality.  I remind him we were behind Elsa Lanchester's retirement gift.
He looks at one, a black wire paper tray.  He holds it up asking if we have it in red.
I tell him no, but we can spray paint it red.
He storms out and the office becomes another attraction at the park, a concrete re-creation of the outside of the Flintstone's house.  Inside, it's sparse- a film projector, a screen, and that's it.
I sit on the floor, there's something in black and white showing on the screen, and there's a hurricane coming.
Then I woke up.
---
Very vivd dream, could feel the mist of water during the rain scene.
As I'm being dragged into the madness that is my memory lately, I KNOW, I just KNOW, that the theater in the dream was inspired by the faux- Globe Theater at Busch Gardens The Old Country in Williamsburg.  When I was a youngster, I saw a magic show/play there that just freaked me out... there were busts of historical figures, authors, what ever, on the walls... but during the play Devil faces were projected on to them in red that made it seeem like they'd come to life.
I woke up remembering that.
The theater was also inspired by Disney's Haunted Mansion, having to wait in line to go in.
The musical itself was inspired by Rupert (the Pina Colada Song guy) Holmes' musical Drood, which I actually managed to see on Broadway.


I'd love to know what it is that triggers vivid dreams like this- if I could I'd mega dose on it before bed. It's like super surreal participation tv!

Dream:
At school, college, in the dorms.  Police cars everywhere with flashing lights.  Wishing my roommate a good vacation.
At a shopping center.   Defunct comicbook store.  The doors are unlocked so I go in to look around. Comic boxes are stored in the rafters and one of them spills out raining comics down on me.  They've been slightly waterdamaged but I take copies for the kids I'll be seeing later.
New Year's Eve.  Parents' house.
My sister Elizabeth is there, dressing to party... she's wearing something that looks like a cloggers outfit.   She seems to think it looks sophisticated.
  On the back porch parents are entertaining a family they know, a Russian couple with three children, a boy and two daughters, both burn victims.  Their faces are burned but their eyes are still good, pleasant children despite language barrier.
Going to a party with a friend.  Stopping at another family's party before going out.  Discussion of the pronouciation of rugulach. Rubbing the stomach of a happy dog.
When we get to the parking lot where my car should be it's gone so we take my friend's.
--
I have no idea where that came from.
Pardon spelling... will fix later, doing this as quickly as possible to get the details.

Dream:

I'm living in a dorm situatiion.  I'm driving a burgundy Oldsmobile. 

Driving around the Olds' dealership lot. 

There's overlap between the situations to the point where I park the Olds in the dorm giftshop.

Walking through the halls, a chorus group is practicing, wearing chitons.  At the end of the hall there's a stairwell, I was going to use it but a pipe has burst so it's raining in the stairwell.  The chorus kids pass me on my way back, and I tell them to steer clear of the stairwell, considering the effect of water on white muslin.

My mom is visiting, she's wearing a mint green suit, with a yellow shirt and a red tie- remarkably, it works for her.
