An Only Lovers Left Alive Inspired Dream With Sherlock Holmes

This morning I was awakened by someone at a critical time during my last dream which caused me to forget all of my other dreams and most of my last dream, which is very annoying because I did and I would have remembered some of them if it were not for the interruption which included an unnecessary phone call, the person who woke me up meant well but they caused me to forget things that I wanted to remember and waking me up turned out to be completely unnecessary causing me to lose two hours of sleep which I will not get back now and to lose most of my dreams that I wanted to remember (I did take this time to finish a job application, and so I will probably get a job interview in a week or two because everyone automatically gets a job interview for this job; which I do not like because I do not like job interviews or job applications, but this is positive news while also being neutral and negative news and it is for a job that I substituted for in my last job so my chances are better than usual); but even after all that amazingly I barely remember part of the end of my last dream which seemed to be inspired by the film Only Lovers Left Alive, which I watched before going to sleep, and maybe one of my other dreams was inspired by this film as well.

I can not remember exactly how this dream was inspired by that film but I do know that the dream had a slower paced feel/atmosphere/mood/et cetera with a focus on things that are not normally focused on in dreams (small details and topics in life that often get over-looked in dreams) and there was some good and personal and unique dialogue with the other dream characters, there was also a focus on music and musical formats/media (CDs, et cetera) and on personal/mundane/philosophical/et cetera topics and on people in history, and more things that I can not remember.

At the end of the dream I think that it was night and Sherlock Holmes played by the actor Benedict Cumberbatch from the BBC television show Sherlock, a woman with whitish colored skin with maybe yellowish colored hair, a boy who was possibly the woman’s son or young brother, my mom, maybe my brother GC, and I were out in the countryside of the city of D down a country road outside of a house; and it seemed to be an emergency situation, and Sherlock drove us there in his car.

It seemed that we were picking up the woman and the boy who were in a panic like they/we were in danger or something and we needed to get them away and leave quickly, earlier in the dream Sherlock and some of the others and I possibly went to this location earlier in the dream to maybe drop them off and some other things happened in the dream that I can not remember, and as we were preparing to leave I remember adjusting some objects in Sherlock’s car including some music CDs.

As we were leaving I remember talking about music and picking a music CD to listen to, we talked about history and people in history, we talked about the emergency situation, and we talked about various interesting things in life; and at some point I remember us driving to a store and maybe it was day now but I can not remember, and we went inside the store  and near the cash registers there was a man who somewhat reminded me of the actor Roger R. Cross giving a demonstration for a job training program involving bonding / gluing things like jewelry and bonding/gluing things on automobiles et cetera.

I remember talking to Sherlock about very personal things including jobs and my problems/struggles with social/generalized anxiety disorder and depression, Sherlock had not know about this, and we talked about a grid that he once wrote on piece paper for me after he had glanced at a book on mental health; and this grid was used to help people with their mental health issues by them putting certain information on the grid each day, and he explained the grid to me.

I told him that I remembered the grid that he had written on a piece of paper for me, not knowing that I had mental health problems at that time, and I told him that I never did use it; and then I mentioned an idea where maybe he could help me by reading some books/et cetera and try to help me overcome those mental health problems, since he is so smart and quick to learn things, but we got interrupted by my mom.

My mom wanted me to go look at the job training demonstration and decide if I should sign up for one of the classes, you probably had to pay and you would take a class and probably get certified and then you would probably work for the company handling the job training, and so I stopped to watch the demonstration; and the man who somewhat reminded me of Mr. Cross lined up several small clear plastic pieces of tubing in a V-shape with little cut pieces of plastic tubing at the top to connect each end, you had to line the up a certain way it seemed, and then he started gluing them.

I asked him some questions as he was doing this, I also looked at his signs/papers/pamphlets reading about the different classes/jobs trying to decide if I wanted to try any of them, but I got awakened in the real world by someone who handed me a telephone because I had a phone call.

My Former Classmate SB Working As An Artist And Now Looks A Bit Like Benedict Cumberbatch

I had several dreams last night but I forgot them all except for barely part of the end of my last dream, and I did not voice record any of my dreams from last night.

There was more that happened in the dream that I can not remember where I think that I traveled with my parents’ and/or several other people during the day to several fictional locations, and several other things happened that I can not remember.

At some point we went inside a building with maybe carpeted floors with various hallways and rooms where people could open small businesses/shops/et cetera, and we walked around exploring/shopping.

At some point we entered a room that possibly had one or more windows and maybe a door to an outdoor maybe courtyard-like area, and in this room we saw various paintings and other forms of art.

Standing in the room was a tall somewhat serious man dressed in painting-like clothes with maybe a painter’s hat to protect his hair who looked a bit like the actor Benedict Cumberbatch, he was the one who made all the art in the room and he was selling it, and we greeted him.

I quickly realized that he looked familiar, he recognized me, he said my name, he asked me if I remembered who he was, and I asked him if he really was my former classmate SB; and he said yes.

I was surprised how tall he was now, how serious he was now, how his voice was different now, and how he now looked a bit like the actor Benedict Cumberbatch playing a serious character/artist.

I told him that he looked like the actor Benedict Cumberbatch now and that if he slightly adjusted his outfit and hair and walked around the building that some people would think that he was him, and I somewhat jokingly told him that I heard that Mr. Cumberbatch is pretty popular with women/the ladies; and so he might get some extra attention.

He started adjusting his outfit, his hair, and his hat (he adjusted his hat to look a bit like the deerstalker hat of Mr. Cumberbatch’s character Sherlock Holmes from the BBC TV show Sherlock) and he asked me/us how he looked; and we helped him until he looked even more like Mr. Cumberbatch, and I remember smiling/laughing a bit because it was funny how he was actually following our advice as an experiment to see if people would really think that he was Mr. Cumberbatch because until this point he acted so serious.

We briefly talked about our lives and he told me that he was married and that he had a child now to my surprise, I looked at him and I sensed that his/their child was a boy, and I told him this and he said that I was correct/right; and I told him how I was surprised by this, except for the part about him having a son, because somehow it just seemed like he would have a son one day.

He showed me/us some of his art for sell and I noticed some portraits of people, and I asked him how much it would cost for his least expensive portrait to have a portrait painted of me/myself; and he told me $300 or $300-something.

I looked at him making it clear that I could not afford that, he looked back at me letting me know that he knew this, and we both looked at each other in agreement smiling a bit because it was a bit funny for some reason.

We said a few more things and I told him that I wanted to buy something but I could not afford to buy anything unfortunately, he said that he has more expensive prices because he needs to make a living for him and his family, and I told him that I know; and I told him that it was good to see him again, and I wish him well.

We said goodbye and I/we walked away to continue exploring the building as my former classmate SB stayed inside his art shop, but he was going to close soon for the day; and I felt that he would walk around the building a while to see if anyone thinks that he was Mr. Cumberbatch, but I woke up.

The end,

Sherlock Holmes Versus Sherlock Holmes

Source: Wikimedia Commons

I had several detailed dreams last night but I forgot most of them and my memory of the few that I remember is fading fast, and so I will try to type what I remember.

Dream 1

One dream involved me going on vacation and/or trying to find a job/a place to live/et cetera, my family might have went separately with me as well but I am not sure, and the dream took place in several fictional cities with one of the cities being like L & one city being like LC but I can not remember the other cities.

In the dream I went around various cities job searching by asking people/looking around/et cetera & probably applying for jobs, I probably stayed at several hotels/motels, I probably ate/drank at several restaurants, and I probably tried to have some fun around each city, and maybe I spent some time with my family; but I can not remember most of the dream, but I know that it was long & detailed.

During one part of the dream I went to a small fictional city/town that was in a past dream where I stood in line outside of a chemical-like plant with other people who were looking for a job there, in this dream I got to see a few other areas in the city, and I stopped at a store to ask people about job openings in the area; and I came across a thin man with whitish colored skin with a blue & white colored baseball cap/hat who had been in that past dream looking for a job as well, and he said that he remembered seeing me outside the chemical-like plant because he was there looking for a job as well.

He said that there were no job openings at the chemical-like plant, we talked about jobs and some of our past experiences, but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

The next dream that I can remember involved me seeing a fictional TV show called Sherlock Versus Sherlock, it was a TV show about Sherlock Holmes from the BBC TV show Sherlock played by the actor Benedict Cumberbatch competing with & being joined by another Sherlock Holmes from a fictional American copy of the BBC Sherlock TV show called Sherlock US, and I think that the first episode might have taken place in D at some point.

As I watched this new fictional TV show I still liked the BBC Sherlock Holmes played by Mr. Cumberbatch better than the fictional US Sherlock Holmes, as expected, and they both had different personalities/accents/styles/strengths as expected; and the BBC Sherlock Holmes was like he is on the BBC TV show Sherlock, and so nothing changed there.

There was a lot of back & forth arguing/joking/sarcasm/insults/competition/et cetera between the two Sherlock Holmes, and so this helped make the TV show more interesting & funny wondering what clever things they would say to each other next; and the BBC Sherlock Holmes was better being clever/saying clever things than the US Sherlock Holmes.

As they both tried to solve cases they would use their various strengths as the camera & sound effects would adjust showing their various abilities, and they would compete to see who could find the most clues/et cetera; and during one of these cases they were outside my grandfather’s yard next to the street arguing/competing/investigating/et cetera a crime scene or case, but I can not remember the rest of the dream.

Dream 3

I had another dream that took place during the day in D, my aunt DE came over to my parent’s house, and I remember my family & my aunt DE & I leaving in two separate automobiles; and my aunt DE rode in my parent’s automobile, I remember saying a few things to my aunt DE before we left by the peach tree, but that is all that I can remember.

Dream 4

I think that I had another dream that involved a school, I remember talking to a woman & a man who both had whitish colored skin in a classroom near a window & the dream took place during the day, and I think that the woman angrily said something negative about dreams to/toward me like:

“You and your dreams, you need to forget them because they do not matter, reality is what matters; and so you are just wasting your time!”.

The man tried to get her to calm down and the woman & I had a debate / conversation about dreams, but it did not go well because she got very angry like she hated dreams for some reason; but that is all that I can remember, and I woke up at some point.

The end,
