A hard-working, blue-collar dad who just wants to provide a good life for his quick-witted 8-year-old daughter. His mundane San Fernando Valley pool cleaning job is a front for his real source of income: hunting and killing vampires.
The newspaper business is in an uproar, his marriage to a fellow journalist has fallen apart and he can’t entirely remember what he loved about his job in the first place.
Then, one day, while walking through Los Angeles’ Skid Row, he sees the mysterious bedraggled figure Nathaniel Ayers, pouring his soul into a two-stringed violin.
At first, Lopez approaches Ayers as just another story idea in a city of millions.
But as he begins to unearth the mystery of how this alternately brilliant and distracted street musician, once a dynamic prodigy headed for fame, wound up living in tunnels and doorways, it sparks an unexpected quest.
Imagining he can change Ayers’ life, Lopez embarks on a quixotic mission to get him off the streets and back to the world of music.
But even as he fights to save Ayers’ life, he begins to see that it is Ayers–with his unsinkable passion, his freedom-loving obstinacy and his valiant attempts at connection and love–who is profoundly changing Lopez.
I saw this movie years ago probably not long after it was possibly a Redbox rental, and I possibly rented it from a Redbox when I was possibly staying at a hotel in the city of L back when I was trying to make a return to college.
I had more dreams but I did not voice record them so I ended up forgetting those dreams, and so now I can only barely remember part of two dreams.
This was my favorite dream, but unfortunately I can not remember most of it so all of the important and interesting details are missing now unfortunately. 😦
This dream possibly took place over a period of two or more days, probably the usual time jumps, but I can not remember.
I just remember being with a woman who possibly had light color skin, we were spending time together in a fictional city like this was maybe a mini-vacation or something but I am not sure, and maybe she was my wife or girlfriend but I can not remember.
We possibly were leaving a nice tall modern multi-story hotel that we probably had stayed at but I can not remember, but I do remember us being outside walking away near this building.
I was in a good mood and the mood of this dream was very positive, I guess we had a good time together, but it was time for us to leave the city.
Things were going so well that I wanted to stay another night in the city and at the hotel, and so I told the woman that we should stay another night.
She wanted to spend another night as well but she reminded me that we were supposed to be leaving, I gave her a few reasons that I can not remember for why we should stay another night, and maybe one of these reasons involved maybe being able to stay another night at the hotel for free or cheap but I can not remember.
I asked her if she had a good time and if she was ready to leave, she said that she had a good time and that she did not want to leave, and so I responded then we should not leave.
We both smiled and shrugged our shoulders and said something like: “Well, you know, yeah, why not, okay, let’s do it!” and we probably jumped in celebration and we walked back to the hotel to check back in for another night.
We got to spend some more time together inside the hotel and / or going around the city together, but that is all that I can remember of this dream unfortunately.
I can not even remember who the woman was or what she looked like, in the dream I probably knew the woman or felt that I knew her, and I would have been able to describe her appearance if I would have remembered more of this dream.
All that I can remember of this dream is that I walked inside a small lobby of a building, this building was possibly a multi-purpose building that possibly had a law firm in this area, a library in another area, maybe a police station in another area, and who knows what else.
Sitting in the lobby on a couch filling out some paperwork was the animated character Light Yagami from the Death Note anime (animated) television show, I think that he was animated in this dream but I did not notice this during the dream or after the dream until I stopped to think about it late in the day, and he was thinking out-loud to himself and / or I could hear his internal dialogue.
Light was very focused and intense as he thought to himself and filled out his paperwork, and it reminded me of something like this:
Light seemed to be dealing with some legal issues, maybe the police were trying to get him on some possible charges, and so he was filling out legal paperwork at this assumed law firm I guess.
A man with light-color skin (he was probably not animated, I think that only Light was animated in this dream) walked into the lobby who was possibly a detective, he said something to Light about him not being able to get out of things this time or something like that (maybe he said that I got you this time, good luck getting out of this one, see you in court), and so this assumed detective was probably part of some investigation of Light so he was trying to bring Light to justice I assume.
Light responded to the detective confidently and defiantly, but I can not remember what he said.
At some point Light finished his paperwork and maybe gave it to a female employee with light-color skin wearing business dress clothes, and either he followed her into another room or another part of the building or he left.
Then the actor Jamie Foxx entered the lobby, at the end of the lobby was a hallway to the left and a hallway to the right, and some of my coworkers like K and Mr. CF and several other female coworkers of mine from The BP Library walked from one or both of these hallways like maybe The BP Library was in another part of this building.
Mr. Foxx and maybe my coworkers possibly got a phone call and / or message of some kind, someone was blackmailing them by threatening to harm their families and / or something else, and this person was possibly a prankster who possibly was an obese man with light-color skin wearing eyeglasses who likes to prank people by blackmailing them into doing certain things (somehow I saw what he possibly looked like in my mind, he was in a dark room, and he seemed to be enjoying himself).
Mr. Foxx and my coworkers started doing whatever the prankster / blackmailer told them to do, and he had them do simple things like rearrange furniture and things in the lobby.
After this Mr. Foxx left angrily but my coworkers stayed behind, I walked over to talk with them about what happened, and at some point one of our directors wanted my coworkers to move a large pink wooden flexible shelf that looked like the one that my parent’s put in The G House.
It was too heavy for them and so I helped Mr. CF move it, it was not heavy to me, and we moved it against another wall to where one end wrapped around the corner of the wall in the hallway on the right side.
I barely remember part of one dream that had several parts, I remember the dream taking place during the day, and several parts of the dream took place at a college I think; and I went to class several times there probably.
During one of the classes my uncle CE, the actor Jamie Foxx, and several other celebrities with medium-dark brownish colored skin were in the class for some special event or something where they had our class walk to the front to pick up a laptop one-at-a-time slowly as they called out names & later we each had to pick up packets & last we needed to get a code or something to move to the next step but I never got that far; I got a laptop, I got a packet that had my brother CC’s name on it along with my name oddly (he was in the class too oddly), but I never got the code because I woke up shortly after stopping the class bully from attacking another student by calming him down by talking.
