Always by himself
Never anyone to share the game
A man who lived in dreams
that’s who he was”

What is it about?

This is how Rotten Tomatoes describes this anime (animated) movie:

The popular animé series Cowboy Bebop gets its own feature-length film with the aptly named Cowboy Bebop: The Movie.

Set in the late 21st century, it jumps into the series’ story line just prior to its conclusion, with the bounty hunting crew of the interstellar craft Bebop chasing a hacker aboard a tanker into a major city on Mars.

As crew member Faye Valentine closes in on the tanker, she witnesses its catastrophic explosion, which soon appears to be a viral terrorist attack as the death toll continues to mount in the days following.

Furthermore, Faye caught a glimpse of the person responsible for the blast and is thus the only surviving witness of the crime.

After the government puts out a large bounty for the perpetrator’s capture, the Bebop gang — slacker Spike Spiegel, former policeman Jet Black, and hacker girl genius Edward — begin their own hunt for the mass murderer, who is eventually revealed to be one Vincent Volaju.

Vincent, it turns out, was the lone survivor of a governmental medical test and now seeks revenge by unleashing the same microscopic robotic virus used in the tanker explosion on the unsuspecting city.

The Bebop crew must scramble to prevent Vincent from carrying out his plan, as well as try to locate an anti-virus to counterattack the effects of Vincent’s virus.

Released in both dubbed and subtitled cuts in the United States in 2003, Cowboy Bebop – The Movie premiered in Japan in 2001.

Beautiful scene from the film


Hanging Out At A School With My Former Classmate MT And My Brother CC

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day and I was hanging out with my former male classmate MT and a younger version of my brother CC, and for some unknown strange reason(s) we were hanging out at a school that was a fictionalized combination of several schools in the city of D.

We were not supposed to be at the school and we were not supposed to be working at the school, even in the dream I was not sure why we were there, and I did not want to be there; but it seemed that my former classmate MT wanted to be there.

There was tension and discomfort and anxiety during parts of the dream as we tried to pretend that we were supposed to be there or that we were supposed to be working, and we spent most of our time hanging out in quiet areas and not classrooms.

We were approached several times during the dream with one time involving a somewhat older female janitor with dark-brownish colored skin with short hair who knew me and my dad, and she thought that we were supposed to be working so she told us to get to work instead of sitting around.

We pretended to start working, then we moved to a different part of the school to avoid her even though I wanted to leave, but my former classmate MT wanted to stay and he said that it would be okay even though I was worried about someone calling the police and because we were not supposed to be there.

The second time was a male teacher with whitish colored skin with short dark-colored hair asking us for donations for something, and the third time was a female teacher with whitish colored skin who said that she was going to call my mom or my parent’s house about something; but she mistakenly thought that my female cousin HC was my mom or that her house was my parent’s house, and so I told her about this mistake.

At some point in the dream we met my dad and we told him about the janitor from earlier, and he went to talk with her to let her know that we were not working at the school; and she apologized, and she said that we should have told her.

I still wanted to leave but my former classmate MT still wanted to stay, and so we went to hang out in a fictional school library that has been in many of my past dreams that usually is dimly lit and has a classroom inside of it; but I woke up at some point with the song Dijurido from the album The Seatbelts: Future Blues (2001) for the film Cowboy Bebop: The Movie playing in my mind:

A Midsummer Depressive Turned Comedic Night’s Daydream / Play

Source: Wikipedia

I just found a yellow sticky note (As they call them, they call it sticky because there is glue on the back) by my computer that is months old, on it were a few words I had written one night after work to remind myself of a daydream/play I made.

Months ago while I was at work, I remember being in a depressive-like mood, but at some point during work as I listened to some music, I started to daydream about myself making/staring in a play, then I started to feel better.

I can not remember much of it now, but on the yellow sticky note I wrote:

To be or not to be

Émilie Simon performance and scene

Cardboard replacements (standees)

Job Scene

Ending: Ask DNA (song) during the ending credits with dancing

I do remember one scene with two people walking out on stage, one of them looks at the other one and says: “To be or not to be, that is the question.”

And the other one looks at the crowd with a funny straight face, pauses, and says: “But what is the answer?”.

Then the crowd laughs, and the two people run back stage; end of scene.

I probably also imagined that between scenes, there would be performances by music artists like: Pauline Croze, Emilie Simon, and probably a few other music artists that I was listening to while I was daydreaming all of this.

I do know that one scene was to take place right after a Pauline Croze performance and Pauline Croze would be part of that scene, but I can not remember it.

I do remember part of a similar scene that had a Emilie Simon performance and then a scene with her right after her performance, and I was in that scene as well.

It had something to do with cardboard replacements (standees) of a person, maybe myself and/or her, I can not remember exactly.

The cardboard replacements were probably used by me to avoid getting attacked, by using them as a distraction while I hide or something; I do not remember, but I do know that it was something funny/wacky/goofy.

I think that and/or the Pauline Croze performance was to be / would be interrupted by me trying to join the band during the song, and Ms. Simon or Ms. Croze would get annoyed & they would start chasing me, trying to hit me with probably a guitar or something; but I can not remember.

There were probably some scenes making fun of my job, and some scenes that would get the audience involved in / with the play.

The whole play was mostly a comedy with some music, and there would be / was a dance at the end of the play.

I think the play was supposed to take place at my job and many of my co-workers were to be in it, and everyone would be in the dance at the end with the song Ask DNA from the Cowboy Bebop: The Movie playing.

The ending song would be played by the band while everyone joins / joined in with the performance and dance, and they would just have fun.

The play was about having fun instead of taking things so seriously, even the scenes were set up where the actors/actresses would not have to memorize lines, they would just be given a subject for the scene and they would do whatever they felt like for that scene.

So everyone would relax and they would just go out there to have fun, and they would try to get the audience involved.

That is about all that I can remember, it was so long ago and all I have is a few words on a yellow sticky note to help me remember.
