Beowulf

What is it about?

This is how The IMDb describes this movie:

Set against the coming of Christianity, this is the story of the last hero: in 507, a monstrous troll wreaks havoc in the mead hall of Danish King Hrothgar (Sir Anthony Hopkins). He offers rewards for the death of Grendel (Crispin Glover), so Beowulf (Ray Winstone), a great and boastful Geat warrior, arrives with his thanes. Beowulf sets aside his armor and awaits the monster. A fierce battle ensues that leads to Beowolf’s entering the watery lair of Grendel’s Mother (Angelina Jolie), where a devil’s bargain awaits. Beowulf returns to Herot, the castle, and becomes King. Jump ahead many years, and the sins of the father are visited upon Beowulf and his kingdom. The hero must face his weakness and be heroic once again. Is the age of demons over?—jhailey@hotmail.com

Grendel’s Mother & A Building Collapse

I had more dreams that I remembered and there was more to this dream, but I did not record those dreams or this dream on time so now I can only remember part of this dream.

This dream jumped back and forth between my parents house and a fictional multi-story building that had a fictional version of The BP Library inside of it along with maybe some other places.

Drinking With John Goodman | Talking With Justine Henin

*I am trying to type this with a slight headache and without listening to my voice recordings, and so expect errors and missing details*

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream is being in a fictional city that was somewhat like the city of D and there was a film awards show that was going to take place soon, so various celebrities and many tourists were showing up in the city, and I remember walking around with my dad until we separated at some point.

I remember being in an area with some restaurants, bars, and various businesses that you had to walk to (which was nice, and you did not have to worry about traffic); and I saw the actor John Goodman walking among the crowd, he smiled and said hello to various people, and some of the people seemed to know him like he visited this area regularly.

I remember saying hello to Mr. Goodman and he was on his way to one of the restaurant/bars and he invited me to have a drink with him and talk, he said that he tries to drink and talk with a new person each time, and so I accepted and I joined him for a drink and he paid; and he had what looked like an alcoholic drink, but I am not sure what I had to drink.

We had a brief conversation and Mr. Goodman was a nice and down to earth person it seemed, he seemed to like to have conversations with random people especially when studying for new film roles, and his approach was to have a drink and talk with them; and the conversation would end when he finished drinking, he finished his drink pretty fast, and he said goodbye and I thanked him and he left as I continued drinking my drink. (It is possible that he gave me a ticket to the film awards show, but I am not sure; somehow I was allowed into the film awards show later in the dream, but I can not remember how)

After finishing my drink I left to another area that looked a bit like the area where the BP Alternative School and HD Head Start should be, there was a restaurant-like place on the left side, a platform-like area in the middle for people arriving to the film awards show, and the film awards show area on the right side in a field with chairs and a screen.

I am not sure what order the next two parts of the dream took place and my memory of them is too incomplete but I will type what I remember, I remember going to the middle area where the platform was and I assume that I was wearing a black suit or tuxedo, and a man with whitish colored skin let me into the film awards show like either I had ticket or like I had been invited or something like that.

A somewhat homeless-looking thin man with dark-brownish or blackish colored skin with short blackish colored hair followed me without being stopped or checked by security/whoever, he started annoying me constantly and following me like he was trying to get me angry so that I would attack him, and he seemed to be from somewhere in Africa based on his accent.

I sat down in one of the chairs in front of the screen at the film awards show as celebrities and others arrived, like Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt who I saw not too far from where I was sitting, and even my male cousin ME was there; and the man kept annoying me and I kept telling him to stop bothering me but he would not, at some point he realized that his plan was not working, and so he started threatening me.

I told my cousin ME and the others to record this and pay attention so if he attacked me, it would be clear that I would be acting in self-defense if a fight started, and the man got in my face like he was going to attack me; and I noticed that he was wearing maybe a fake tuxedo or suit, and I wondered how did they let him in and why was he constantly bothering me.

I was annoyed and angry at this point and I was about ready to punch him in the face, I was only waiting for him to attack me first, but he seemed to realize this and so he backed off a bit; and I started talking to him about who he was, how did he get in, and why was he bothering me but I can not remember what happened.

The next part of the dream took place on the left side in maybe a semi-outdoor restaurant with strange seating that was partly sunken with an even lower area in front of it like a court and we were watching a film as we ate/drank/et cetera, and somehow I found or had a small young fictional type of animal that somewhat reminded me of a ferret combined with a cat maybe combined with something else that was possibly an orangish/reddish color with maybe some grayish colored patterns on its fur.

I remember no longer seeing it at some point and I found or had another fictional type of animal that was like a combination of a cat and a scorpion and maybe something else and it was an adult or almost an adult, it was bigger than the other animal and it had maybe a scorpion-like tail, and I remember having to make sure that it did not sting anyone.

I have no idea what these animals were or where they came from or who they were for, but at some point the small young ferret/cat/whatever-like animal returned; and it started fighting and winning against the larger cat/scorpion/whatever-like animal, and so I walked off with them separating them surprised.

I am not sure if the larger animal survived or not, I just remember realizing that I had underestimated the smaller animal, and if I decided to keep one it would probably be the smaller animal because he did not have a scorpion-like tail that could sting people; but I woke up.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this nice and very positive dream is being inside my parent’s house during the day and I walked into the kitchen to find my favorite tennis player Justine Henin inside the kitchen getting some food to heat up in the microwave, and so we started talking; and I told her about how she was my favorite tennis player, and about how her one-handed backhand and style was part of the inspiration for how I play tennis.

I remember telling her that I was not good at serving and I asked her if she could check my serving stance/style and tell me what I am doing wrong and what I can do to improve/fix it, she agreed and she had me get into my serving stance and I think that I had a tennis racquet, and she had me start going through the motions of my serve while starting from my feet and working all the way up touching/checking parts of my body/my stance/motion while instructing me on what to do next.

To my surprise she said that my stance and everything up to that point was good and so now it was time to check the top of my serve/motion/stance when I throw the tennis ball in the air and hit it, something happened during this process that caused Justine to trip and fall catching herself around my shoulders with her head leaning against my neck, and I apologized to her and there was a pause.

Justine gave me a compliment on my body/attractiveness saying that she thinks that she found me physically attractive and she complimented me on my niceness and personality saying that my attractiveness was not just physical but divided more evenly among various areas beyond the physical, she said that some people’s attractiveness is less balanced and mostly just physical, and that it was good to have your attractiveness balanced across more areas; and I thanked her for the compliment while telling her that I was surprised to hear this, and I told her that I did not think that I am physically attractive but that it was good to hear that she thought so.

This dream already felt positive/calming/healing/et cetera but it felt even better at this point during this pause where we were close and I remember telling her that I felt the same way about her probably, and then we went back to talking as she looked in the refrigerator for something; and I remember asking her about the proper pronunciation of her last name, there was a pause while she was distracted trying to look for something, and so I stopped to help her.

She then went toward the microwave to get and prepare her food before responding to my question so this pause gave me some time to think about more questions that I wanted to ask, one question was about what was her natural hair color, and another was that I had heard that she had a twin sister (I think that this was a mistake, I probably was accidentally thinking about a news article that I read about Eva Green and her twin sister, and confusing it with Justine’s life).

I remember imaging Justine going inside a gym of people with her hair dyed a brownish color because her twin sister and her probably naturally had yellowish colored hair, so I assumed that she would dye her hair sometimes to help avoid people getting her sister and her confused/mixed up so that the media /people would not accidentally be bothering her sister all the time in public thinking that she was her; but I was probably wrong about the hair-dying/coloring and twin sister part.

I then suddenly had a vision or daydream of me being outside in my parent’s yard during the day near the picnic table, there was a little girl with whitish colored skin with medium-to-long length hair there and she called me uncle John, and I assumed that she was the daughter of Justine’s twin sister; and that this vision or daydream was from the future where Justine and I were dating or married, and I remember things being very positive and being very happy but I woke up.

I woke up feeling great and comfortable like how you feel after exercising and then taking a nice bath and going to bed and waking up the next morning mostly healed and your bed/bed sheets/pillow feel softer/better than usual, and the positive effects/affects lasted through the morning.

The end,

The Outside Award Show

I only remember part of my last dream, which took place at a fictional version of the NS Park in D during the night, and there was an award show with a lot of celebrities taking place outside; and for some reason I had an invitation, it seemed that something I made must have been made into a film/play/show/or something like that, maybe one or more of my dreams, but who knows?

The two roads that led to NS Park were blocked off by security and there were security check points, if you passed the first check point, you could park in a special parking area; and if you passed the second check point, then you could enter the award show.

I passed both check points since I had my invitation, I was told where my seat would be & who I would be sitting next to, the person who I was to sit next to (a short older woman with whitish colored skin with short curly brownish colored hair) & I were to wait for our names to be called so that we would could officially enter the award show to walk to our seats as the crowd watched & so that the reporters & other people could take photographs & video clips of us like walking down the red carpet almost, and each person at the awards show was required to do this.

I am the shy type, so I did not want to do this, but I did it anyway; and it was a bit uncomfortable, especially since no one cheered or slapped, because the woman & I were both unknowns/not famous.

The seating areas were just simple uncomfortable metal chairs organized in certain patterns in certain areas, nothing fancy since this was outside, but I was still surprised by how un-fancy it was; but I was not complaining, I just thought that the celebrities would not be so happy about it.

The woman who entered with me and who was sitting next to me was not the talking type, we did not know each other, but I tried to talk to her a bit; but that failed, and so we mostly sat boringly in silence, watching the celebrities around us, who ignored us since we were unknowns/not famous.

I remember seeing a few celebrities that I know (not personally, but that I have seen on film, TV, et cetera) like George Clooney, Susan Sarandon, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, and various other celebrities who I can not remember and/or did not know; but most of the celebrities were people who I have never seen before.

After all the people finally entered the award show, the award show began, but I can not remember the award show part very well (but I do know that there were speeches, awards given, and other standard award show stuff); I just remember that after the award show there was an after-party with food, drinks, alcoholic drinks, and maybe some music in the award show area.

In the small field next to seating area was a long row of tables with food, drinks, and alcoholic drinks where people could serve themselves and eat at one of the open tables if they wanted to; but most people stood up or sat down eating & drinking in the seating area.

People were talking about the award show and showing off, as the woman next to me and I sat down boringly looking around, we both seemed to be shy types & the do not drink alcohol usually types; and at some point most of the big celebrities left for/to other after-parties, since this one was not exciting enough.

At some point I decided to go get something to eat & drink, I noticed some people who I knew or who reminded me of people who I know around the tables and/or at the seating area who were having a good time, and so I started to feel a bit more comfortable; and while I was getting some food & something to drink, a man who reminded me of my former classmate BF greeted me, and he seemed partly drunk.

I noticed a variety of alcoholic drinks at the table and maybe the man recommended that I try some of them, so I did something that I would not normally do and I tried one of the alcoholic drinks, and I started to feel that I had a slight buzz (that strange feeling you get in your head/brain); and I stopped after that one shot, and then I started to eat some food while talking to the man.

The man was talking a lot like some people do when they get drunk and he kept following me around, and I noticed that the after-party started to get a bit more exciting as the alcohol started to effect/affect the people a bit; and so people who did not even know each other started talking to each other, dancing a bit maybe, and having a good time.

At some point the man got so drunk that he stopped following me & talking to me, and he walked off talking & laughing to himself & dancing maybe, and it seemed that he would pass out soon; and I went to a fictional bathroom area, and when I went back outside I do not remember seeing the woman who had sat next to me at the awards show.

I decided to eat a bit more food and go talk to a few more people since the mood was more relaxed now, but I woke up.
