July 15, 2014-July 16, 2014 – I was watching the Billy on the Street clip that I had posted on someone’s Facebook wall. I wasn’t paying complete attention at first, but I noticed that it seemed a little different. Then I re-played it and paid close attention this time. I realized this wasn’t the video I thought I had posted (I hadn’t seen this one before), though the topic Billy was discussing was the same. It started off with Billy and one woman already into their conversation, and they were kind of walking away from each other. The woman’s friend was standing closer to Billy. I was going to post the video I had meant to as the next comment in this thread.

Family Target Trip

June 29, 2014-June 30, 2014 – I was at a Target-style store with my family.  I waited by the registers while my mom and dad were picking something up.  There was actually a set of registers near what Mom and Dad were picking up, in addition to the ones out front.

The Best of Mario Kart

June 24, 2014-June 25, 2014 – I was watching a series of Mario Kart races being played by someone else.  The graphics made it look old school, like it was Super Mario Kart or Mario Kart 64, although the tracks didn’t look completely familiar.  The red shell seemed to be a constant bugaboo in these races.  In one race, the guy was playing as Mario.  It was a three-person race between him and two computer characters.  He was in last, but right at the end, it looked like he was going to make a move, but it wasn’t quite enough.  And after crossing the finish line, he got hit by a red shell.  I was wondering why there were only 3 racers; I remembered there always being 8.  Then I saw a starting line with a full set of racers.  These races were being presented to show off Mario Kart records.

Spaced

June 23, 2014-June 24, 2014 – There was something going on at a space station.  Two of the astronauts were walking onto a platform outside the station.  It seemed like the one farther out might end up falling.  I was monitoring the action, possibly from inside the station.  Meanwhile, back on Earth, I was with a group of people putting together a moneymaking scheme.  We went off to this party in the middle of the afternoon to sell an assortment of marijuana products.  We set up shop in the living room.  Someone started to smoke from a tube that had a little bit of green liquid in it.  I didn’t think we should be indulging in our products while working.  But we all seemed fine after having used them a little while ago.

(NOTE: In my dreams, celebrities usually appear as conflations of themselves and the characters they play.  So if a dream takes place in a movie or TV show, then its characters are usually also the actors that play them.  There a few exceptions: animated characters generally are not counted this way, as they don’t tend to have this same conflated quality.  So, an appearance by Stewie Griffin would not also count as an appearance by Seth MacFarlane.  Also, for fictional characters that have had multiple iterations: an appearance by Hannibal Lecter doesn’t count as an appearance by Mads Mikkelsen unless it is the version of Hannibal as played by Mads Mikkelsen.)

Community remains my favorite show of all time, and in 2014 it remained the most frequent fodder for my dreams featuring actors and the characters they play.  Alison Brie was again number one, this time breaking away from the tie she shared with Joel McHale the last two years.  Joel was close behind in second place, with both breaking their own records.
Outside of Community, Chris Gethard and Billy Eichner had strong showings to go along with their memorable 2014’s in real life.  It was also a memorable year for Jeopardy! and correspondingly a strong year for Jeopardy! contestants appearing in my dreams.

True Movie Theatre Detective

June 22, 2014-June 23, 2014 – Woody Harrelson was going to be working at the movie theatre.  It was actually him, not his True Detective character, but he was going to be like Marty.  Tom the maintenance guy was apprehensive about this.

Lana Del Ride

June 22, 2014-June 23, 2014 – I was driving home from work.  There was a new Lana del Rey song playing.  The only way to describe it was “pure chamber pop.”  There was still a little bit of it left as I pulled into the driveway, behind another car.

A Dream I’m Thankful For

November 25, 2014-November 26, 2014 –  There were some Rifftrax Live events taking place at the theatre I work at.  As in, the people doing the riffing were actually in the theatre.  The riffers weren’t the MST3K people, but instead special guests.  For the first two, the riffers were the only ones in the theatre.  For the third one, the riffers were Siskel and Ebert.  I went to the entrance to let them in.  I stood at one of the doors on the right and waited for them as they walked up from the parking lot (even though the building was open).  They were having an animated conversation.  We had to clean the theatre that they were going to be riffing in.  The last show in there was a Divergent movie.  It was letting out now.  The crowd was entirely teenage girls.  We were going to have a bit of a crowd joining Siskel and Ebert.  I was going to sit next to them.  But then I was called out to take care of something in the lobby.  When I got back, it looked like we were in the theatre next to the one we had been in.  Siskel and Ebert were sitting in the middle.  There was a small crowd in the front and some people in the back.  It looked like I was still going to be able to sit next to them.  At some point Jennifer Lawrence was walking by, headed to the Rifftrax theatre.

Bug People

June 20, 2014-June 21, 2014 – I was watching what appeared to be a horror movie scenario.  I was in the place where everything was going on, but just as an observer.  A large group of young people were hanging out for a party or series of parties.  They were in a large farmhouse and the woods next to the house.  People’s limbs were turning into bug-like appendages, and their eyes were becoming gray and otherwise discolored.  Nobody seemed too surprised by this development.  Then there was an overhead shot of a girl in a tub in a room overlooking the woods.  She screamed that she felt like she was changing.  Right on cue, she grew a tail with a stinger.  Then her eyes burnt out, and now her lids were permanently closed.  She was screaming throughout the whole transformation.

A Scandal-ous Quarantine

June 20, 2014-June 21, 2014 – I was out in my front yard, in the late afternoon/evening.  I was on the edge of the yard by the street.  Suddenly, Rowan Pope from Scandal showed up and told me I needed to get out of the way, because it wasn’t safe here.  A whole crew of other government types – like a SWAT team – were also descending on the area.  This all seemed a little suspect, but I tried to get out of the way nonetheless.  They set down a rope along the length of the street on the edge nearer the even-numbered houses to set off the quarantined area.  Then they pulled it over to the other side of the street before I had a chance to get on the right side.  My dad and brother were also outside.
