Posts Tagged ‘Barack Obama’

(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 Stan Marsh would not also count as an appearance by Trey Parker.  Also, for fictional characters that have had multiple iterations: an appearance by James Bond doesn’t count as an appearance by Daniel Craig unless it is the version of Bond as played by Craig.)

I’m at a point in my life where I personally know some people who work in the film and TV biz, thus explaining Tick star Griffin Newman’s placement atop this list, which mostly has to do with Blank Check with Griffin and David always going to the top of my must-listen podcast to-do list.
A little further down the charts we have a battle of political administrations, as well as Alison Brie taking her normal spot near the top. American Housewife‘s cast/characters make a strong showing among new shows, while Mr. Robot and New Girl continue to affect my psyche.

January 28, 2017-January 29, 2017 – I was watching a meeting between Donald Trump and Barack Obama. They were in some Middle Eastern country. They were sitting  in the middle of a cave-like structure in a big courtyard, very isolated from anybody else. Obama was giving Trump some Middle East advice. Then the walls of the structure started moving forward, and Obama and Trump had to weave around some obstacles. Then they were walking around the courtyard. Obama asked Trump what he had learned. He really didn’t get it. Obama said something like, “No, Donald, you have to listen!” Then Obama was presenting Trump with some typical ceremonial arts honor in front of a crowd of Hollywood types. It looked like they were in a school assembly hall, but a little bigger than that would normally be. The audience was sitting in folding chairs. I stood by the stage during the presentation. As soon as Obama gave him the certificate and Trump came to the mic, the crowd started booing. Trump started doing some performance. He held his arm over his mouth while doing impressions of cartoon characters. I was on stage now. Trump set me up for a line. I walked up to the mic and improvised, “Oh no!” which got a decent amount of laughs. Then I stood off on the other side, on the right. Donald was just flailing and spinning around now. So I went up to the mic and said, “We’ll be back to The Goofy Show after these messages.” And that ended the performance. The big screen on the wall was now showing a Disney Channel cartoon. The channel display looked like that of Comcast. Britt Robertson came up to the stage to give Trump a recap. She was critical, but upbeat. I was listening from in front of the stage. Britt was saying, “When you were dancing around, and then Jeff came in, and that was the right thing to do.”
