July 22, 2016-July 23, 2016 – I was hanging out at a swimming pool (that was partially indoor and partially outdoor) with friends and family. I walked around and jumped in. There was a movie trailer playing on the wall by the pool. It was a thriller with a redheaded actress. Someone in the pool said that it reminded her of Contagion and Side Effects. I said that that was a good observation, as I waded my way to the steps at the shallow end and got out of the pool. Someone made another observation, but I said that what they were thinking of was actually Say Anything… And I was about to say that the “In Your Eyes” scene was known for being from this movie.

July 18, 2016-July 19, 2016 – I was watching/in that movie with Liam Neeson on a plane (Non-Stop). He was in a shootout with two guys. Liam was on the opposite end of the plane as them. They were nearer the back. Liam was stepping out to fire, and then taking cover behind the wall extension. He came out again. I thought he was exposing himself for too long, but his opponent missed. He managed a direct hit in the forehead. The other guy was also neutralized. Rashida Jones walked up from the back of the plane and met up with Liam. It was pretty clear now that she was one of the villains. I went to explore. The opening credits were making their way through the back of the plane. This movie was notable for having fun with on-screen text, and in this version, the opening credits (which were tactile but easily breachable) were making their way across the physical length of the movie over the course of the running time. The plane suddenly started to dive. The pilot came out of the bathroom and ran up to the cockpit. He was still pulling his pants up. I think Rashida was in the cockpit now. There was some debris from the credits falling out of the overhead compartments.

An Unreal Power Play

July 13, 2016-July 14, 2016 – I was talking with Chet from UnREAL. We were in an office that my dad and I and a few others had recently turned into our office. At some point, Chet declared that he had turned this into his office again. He had surreptitiously been moving his stuff in during the conversation.

July 11, 2016-July 12, 2016 – I was in what looked like a shopping mall. I was headed to Queens for a baseball game, or something like that. I looked up directions on my phone. There were four trains I could get on at this station, and then with all of those options, I would transfer to the D. The option listed at the top (M to D) was a little shorter than the others, so I chose that one. It was a V-shaped route. It was about four stops total, with two on the D. It looked like the train was going to run along the mall floor. I wondered how that would work. I just barely jumped into the train’s last car as it was taking off. The cars were like rollercoaster seats. There were about four people in cars farther up on this train. I was hanging onto the side of the car. Eventually I settled in. We went along the floor. Somehow we kept moving as though we were still on a track, and we avoided bumping into the kiosks. Someone I knew from movie trivia was cheering me on to keep moving. We started to go up where it looked like an escalator was, and then we continued going around. Eventually I was in a room by myself, watching football. My dad was walking through the hallway. The Cowboys had just run for 2 yards on first down. I wondered if this running back was going to work out. On the next play, Romo ran on a set play for about 20 yards to midfield. Later in the drive, when they were just inside the 20, Will Forte and Kristen Wiig were on the field for the Cowboys.

July 10, 2016-July 11, 2016 – I was watching The $100,000 Pyramid. First, Joel McHale was giving clues to his partner. They were a little impenetrably obscure. Then Tituss Burgess was giving clues. One of them was “Robert Bresson.” His guy wasn’t getting it. So Tituss skipped ahead on his stack of cards. Then they figured out that the category was “Famous Photographers.”

June 24, 2016-June 25, 2016 – I was coming back from somewhere in Pittsburgh with a woman and her twentysomething daughter. We stopped at their house. A friend of the girl’s came over. The two of them went upstairs. Then someone dressed like Elvis walked through the front door. The mom greeted him like he was the actual Elvis. This was taking place in the 90s, but he still looked too young (and not dead) to be the actual Elvis. Mom went off somewhere. Elvis went upstairs. There was a dog. A second friend showed up at some point. The daughter came downstairs and let me know that she and her friend were hanging out with Elvis on the bed. I let her know that I was probably too tired to join them. But then I went up. Based on the size of the bed, it looked like we were in the parents’ room. It looked like things were about to get frisky. And indeed, the girls slipped their tops down and got under the cover with Elvis. I just lay down on the edge of the bed and closed my eyes, trying to take a quick nap. But then I got up and decided to leave. Downstairs, I ran into the other friend, who was also on her way out. She asked me which way she needed to go. She was heading to Oklahoma. I was pretty sure I knew which highway she needed to take, but then I thought about it, and I actually wasn’t sure. Then I thought about my trip back. I didn’t know how I was going to make the whole trip back to Yardley (PA) tonight. But it somehow, though not quite, felt like I was close enough to make it there easily. The area looked like Bucks County.

June 30, 2016-July 1, 2016 – I was watching a movie about robbery and the business world. A chase was sparked in the lobby floor of a business suite. A group of businessmen realized that a criminal was attempting to pull off a heist. They chased her down to the other side of the floor, near a check-in desk. They got bunched up in a circle. One of the businessmen, played by William Hurt, said something to try to take charge of the situation. But then the criminal, played by Julia Roberts, warned everyone to not try anything. Somebody pulled his hand up, so she pulled her gun out and whipped it around. Somebody lost a hand. I thought about screaming, jumping into the scrum, and throwing something at the desk to break it up. It would definitely change the situation, possibly improve it, but not necessarily fix it.
