January 6, 2010-January 7, 2010 – I saw a photo still (that I now realize resembled the cover of Radiohead’s The Bends).  I knew it was from a David Lynch movie, but I couldn’t remember the name of it.  So I looked it up in my 1001 Movies You Must See Before You Die book.  I looked up Lynch in the Directors Index.  He had only three films listed, and I didn’t think it was any of those three.  Also, Naked Lunch wasn’t listed, and I was positive that that was in the book.  So I flipped through the pages.  I was in the 1980’s when I noticed what appeared to be a Pokémon movie.  I flipped to the movie I was looking for, but then I came back to the Pokémon page, and it was, in fact, a Pokémon movie from 1989 (or ’88).  The cast was listed as “Pikachu” and “Mario, if you can believe it or not.”  The first sentence of the blurb mentioned how Pokémon’s success had partially originated in the U.S.  I was flipping through a large book – it might have been 1001 Movies…, or it might have been another book, and I noticed that there were notes and signatures in there from friends, as though it were a yearbook.

November 26, 2008-November 27, 2008 – I was in a grocery store.  I was looking at the crabs.  Then I went over to look at the lobsters.  I was trying to figure out what the difference between crabs and lobsters was.  I think I had to get them for something.

A Lot of Potential

October 23, 2007-October 24, 2007 – I was watching an old movie in which a kid (maybe about 13 years old or so) was playing the younger version of some role played by a well-known actor.  This kid gave a great performance, just heartbreaking.  But there was this other movie that he did soon after that he was absolutely horrible in.  When  the movie ended, a trailer of that horrible movie started to play.  Then I started to tell Jason about how Hitchcock had great trailers, especially The Birds.  He asked what that trailer was like, and as I started to explain it, it started to play on the DVD.

Have I Been Lied to?

January 18, 2012-January 19, 2012 – I was in the beginning of The Artist.  I was at the movie theatre with Dad.  We were hanging out behind the concession stand.  Then Jean Dujardin showed up, and we all started talking.  The Artist was supposed to be silent.  I determined that this was a prologue sort of scene that would lead into the rest of the movie, which would be silent.  The first scene after the prologue (which was in black and white) was a montage featuring Jean Dujardin, his dog, and some other characters.  Jean Dujardin’s character was singing over this montage.  I figured this singing was acceptable, because music was the one source of sound in a “silent” movie.

September 7, 2011-September 8, 2011 – I was about to play Rock Band with Uncle Martin and someone else.  Uncle Martin and I were both on guitar.  While it was loading, Uncle Martin was talking about the cheaper option of getting two meals – breakfast and lunch – versus the more expensive, currently planned option of three meals of breakfast, lunch, dinner.  Then he started talking about how Xfinity has movies available sooner than Netflix.  It sounded like he was reciting the announcement for a commercial.

May 1, 2011-May 2, 2011 – I was looking at a list of movies.  Mamma Mia! was at the top of the list.  It was either a list of Oscar nominees or recent box office leaders.  Someone picked up the list from my hands to take a look at it.  This list was supposed to be current, so it didn’t make sense that Mamma Mia! would be on it, since it had come out a few years earlier.  I tooka closer look at the list to see the rest of the movies that were on it.  It was starting to make more sense.

December 3, 2010-December 4, 2010 – I was watching deleted footage from The Hangover (or was it Due Date?).  Zach Galifianakis had driven his Range Rover way out into the desert.  Meanwhile, I was explaining to someone (Mom? Aunt Peg?) what was going on.  Eventually, Zach decided to make his way back.  There was something going on out in the real world.  Zach was driving pretty quickly at first, but then he stopped at a bridge.  I thought that he should just keep going, but Aunt Peg or Mom yelled out that he shouldn’t go through with it.  The middle of the bridge wasn’t wide enough for his vehicle.  I wondered if the bridge would collapse if he tried to push the car along it.
