A Trip + The Last Patriot + Pauline Croze Practicing = Trip Patriot Croze

Last night I remembered most of my last dream, which was split into at least three parts.

A Trip

The first part I remembered I will call, A Trip, it started with my mom and I talking about going on a trip somewhere; then we actually went on the trip, but I am not sure where we went exactly.

It appeared to be in The United States (USA) somewhere, and I remember us going to tour some small walking bridge over water.

As we were touring around with other tourists a man stopped to talk to me, and for some reason started asking me questions about my plans for the future & my past experiences from my college period until now.

He started to offer advice and point out flaws in my plans and/or how I was handling the situation, but I can not remember the specifics.

The Last Patriot

After that the next part of the dream started which I will call, The Last Patriot, which started after I left the bridge and walked to an area near it that appeared to be a high school stadium.

There was a group of people my age standing and listening to a man give a passionate speech, it was Tom Cruise looking like a mix of his character Nathan Algren in The Last Samurai and his character Senator Jasper Irving in Lions For Lambs.

He was talking about the military, their training, their sacrifice, bravery, etc.

He was very serious and was walking around as he talked, and even was showing us examples of some of the training; particularly the hand-to-hand combat training.

He talked about how The United States (USA) needed more citizens to train and defend the country like the many soldiers of the past, and stuff like that.

He brought up different issues like his character in Lions For Lambs, but was dressed somewhat more like his soldier character from The Last Samurai.

After a while he finally stopped and left us all to think about his words as everyone walked away; his speech was actually inspiring and made me think a bit.

As I was walking away with the others, I decided to sit in the stadium seats to think, so I was the only one staying behind.

I was on the first row of seats and I noticed a little stage next to my row on the ground, and sitting on the stage playing a guitar & singing alone was Pauline Croze.

I wondered what in the world was she doing in the USA and figured she was practicing for a concert, which I found odd but very interesting.

I have no idea what songs she was practicing but she was just playing and singing with no microphone, and no one else was around now, but the instruments for the band were sitting on stage.

Soon she noticed me sitting down and came over and started saying something in French to me, that I did not understand so I told her in French that I did not understand.

She then asked me if I understood French, in French, and I told her that I understood a bit of French, in French.

Then we started talking in a bit of French and English, I spoke mostly English with a bit of French and she spoke mostly in French with a bit of English, and so we both only could understand each other a bit; but enough to talk.

I think we talked about her up coming concert, some of her songs, what she was doing here in the USA, about how she became my favorite music artist, about classical guitar & my plans on learning to play it, some other things I can not remember, and I think she offered me free tickets to her concert.

After a short conversation I decided to leave so that she could get back to practicing, and then I woke up as I walked away.

The Escape Artist Featuring Pauline Croze | Et Tu Fatty?

Last night I remembered some of one of my dreams, thanks to the fact that I woke up to use the bathroom and decided to quickly record myself giving a quick audio overview of my dream using my Sansa Clip mp3 player.

I do not remember certain parts of the dream but I do remember the dream starting at a RV park, and some minor unknown celebrity was there with a motorized RV.

I think he was an escape artist/magician and/or musician, and this RV park seemed to be out in the country away from the city.

The people seemed to really support this celebrity who was a man, but I can not remember the parts of the dream with him in the beginning, I only remember that a lot of police officers came driving toward the RV park to arrest him.

The people living at the RV park joined together to confuse/distract/block the police, so they set up blockades and since most of the RVs looked the same, the police did not know which one belonged to the celebrity.

The celebrity and his driver drove their motorized RV away from the RV park to escape, and a boy and his older sister that were playing in a field decided to start a fire to further confuse the police.

The boy was a big fan of the celebrity and wanted to be just like him one day, after setting the fire they both ran away, and the celebrity escaped.

Later the boy and his older sister went to a building that looked like the BP School Board building combined with a school.

The boy decided to practice his escape artist skills, so he decided to sneak through a window on the building without anyone noticing him and he was going to try to walk through the building & escape without any teachers realizing that he was not supposed to be there.

After sneaking through the window, I was magically in the dream in the room the boy had went into, but he was no longer there.

The windows were still there but they no longer led to the outside, for some strange reason the windows led to a mall now, instead of the outside.

On the left side of the room were some chairs and a book self with a man reading a book, and on the right side of the room were the windows that led to the mall and a glass door that led to the mall.

Standing in front of the glass door was a man talking with a woman who appeared to be a principal or a professional of some kind, and the sister of the boy walked into the room wanting to talk with the woman.

Some how I knew that the woman was her and the boy’s mom; also the daughter looked like a slightly younger version of Kirsten Dunst with red hair.

The woman knew that her daughter was waiting to talk to her but she just ignored her and stood with her back to her daughter & continued to talk to the man; she seemed to be the type of person that will make you wait until she is finish doing whatever she is doing before she will let you talk.

The daughter knew this and just stood there waiting patiently, and as this was going on I noticed that the two windows next to the glass door had two chairs under them.

Behind the two windows were two more chairs on the other side that was in the mall, and sitting in them were two women my age that appeared to be from somewhere in Asia (Asian).

One of the women called me over and asked me to sit down because she wanted to show me some illusions that are popular in the country she was from; she told me what country her and her friend were from but I can not remember exactly I think she said India or Iran or Saudi Arabia.

The first illusion started with her putting a piece of paper on the floor that had writing in her language on it and the paper appeared to be on the floor in the mall.

She asked me if the paper was on the floor in the mall or the floor of the room, and I told her I think it was on the floor in the mall but I looked closely and noticed that it was on the floor in the room; she said that I was correct and then the sister of the boy told me that she was surprised that I saw through the illusion because the words on the paper were not in English, but oddly the words on the paper were in English so she was wrong.

The woman was going to show me an illusion using my arm hair next, but something interrupted that and next I remember talking to the guy on the left side of the room that was reading.

I think he made a comment about a subject that many people do not like talking about, which interested me, and so we started to talk about different odd topics.

I started talking too much and somehow changed the subject to my views on religion & deities, which made the man seem to stop wanting to listen, so I decided to stop talking to see what would happen.

He just started reading his book again so I started to look around the room, and noticed some photos of Pauline Croze on the wall covered in plastic.

I took them off the wall because they were connected and the semi-professional photos were on wooden squares that are often used for awards.

There were about 3 or 4 photos on wooden squares that I had never seen before of some music contest that Ms. Croze was in, and she had won some awards.

I think it said FNAC or something like that, two of the photos showed awards that she had received for two songs, one photo showed her winning a costume award for wearing mime or clown face paint with a chefs hat & uniform, and there may have been one more photo but I can not remember.

On the other side of the plastic were some amateur photos of Ms. Croze that appeared to have been taken with a mobile phone and these were not on wooden squares, most of these photos were not very clear & were dark.

One photo had the name of a state in The United States (USA) that started with an O written on it (I can not remember which state exactly) and I was very surprised since I did not know that Ms. Croze had ever went to the USA before, and on the photo Ms. Croze was sitting at a table with other people with wine & food at what appeared to be a semi-formal gathering like an awards ceremony or something.

Another photo was of her dancing with a group of people at a club, that appeared to be outside at night-time, and she was holding a plastic cup with what appeared to be beer in it.

One photo was of her performing at a very small concert, at night-time, and I had the feeling that it was in the USA.

The last two photos were of a woman shown from behind sitting at a club and the other photo was of her dancing at a club, but she seemed too short to be Ms. Croze, but I could not see her face; so I am not sure if it was her or not.

I started to wonder who took these photos, how did they get there, why were they there, and when were they taken; but I woke up.

Et Tu Fatty?

My last dream is somewhat unclear, but I do remember the dream taking place in the past during the Roman Empire.

Three upper class citizens wearing some armor, fine clothing, and short swords arrived by boat to a small poor town that was controlled by a fat & cruel Roman upper class citizen.

The ruler of the town had a group of heavily armored & armed élite Roman guards that protected him and policed the town, and he had a throne in the middle of the town.

There was a line of people in front of his throne and he was forcing every working citizen to bow to him one at a time, and pay him extra taxes that he would use for himself & his guards instead of the citizens.

The other three upper class citizens that had just arrived found this to be terrible and they wanted to stop this ruler of the town, but he had too many guards.

Two of the three upper class citizens were men and one of them was a woman, they decided to try to get closer to the ruler hoping to maybe get a chance to talk with him about his terrible job of ruling the city.

The citizens of the town looked very poor and depressed, some were crying after they paid the ruler, because they had no more money left now; one old starving man begged the ruler not to take his last coin, but the ruler took it anyway and had him put into jail.

There were more citizens than guards but none of them had weapons or armor, they looked very weak, and the guards looked very well-trained so there was no chance of them defeating the ruler & his guards.

The three visiting upper class citizens looked around hoping that they could figure out a way to stop this ruler, one of the three upper class citizens seemed to be a very well-respected & popular citizen that was close to becoming a very powerful person.

The annoying ruler noticed the man & the other two upper class citizens trying to get closer to him,  he was very jealous of the man’s popularity and was afraid that he had come to try to take control of his town.

The annoying ruler decided to whisper to one of his guards to make a quick plan to arrest the man, so that they could take him somewhere to be killed before he had a chance to gain the power to take control of his city.

So the guard decided to force some poor citizens to try to fake an assassination of the ruler and then say that the man had paid them to do it, so that they could arrest him.

As the man and the other two upper class citizens got closer to the annoying ruler to talk to him, suddenly a group of poor citizens tried to attack him and were almost instantly stopped by the guards; the man & the other two upper class citizens actually pulled out their swords preparing to defend themselves or anyone else.

The guards then asked the fake assassins who paid them to try to assassinate the annoying ruler and so they pointed at the man, and then the annoying ruler said arrest him & kill the assassins.

So the guards killed the fake assassins, told everyone to get back, and they started to walk toward the three visiting upper class citizens.

They were ready to fight back, but the man told the others to put their swords away & let him be arrested, they did not want to listen; but they did.

There were too many guards and the man had a plan, and he told them to go around town after he was arrested & try to start a revolt against the annoying ruler.

The man then was arrested and the annoying ruler ordered the guards to take him to his boat, and then the annoying ruler followed them to the boat; his plan was to not directly kill the man, but take him way out into the sea and leave him in the water to die or be eaten by sharks.

The other two upper class citizens were not arrested or bothered, so they decided to follow the boat with the boat they had come in instead of staying in the town to start a revolt.

They kept a distance from the annoying ruler’s boat so that they would not be seen, and as planned, they dropped the man in the sea & waited for a while to make sure no one came to help.

The two other upper class citizens quietly boarded the annoying rulers boat, which only had a few guards on it because he did not want many witnesses to the death of the man, and then they attacked the guards & killed the annoying ruler.

Surprisingly the two upper class citizens were very good fighters and defeated the guards, and then they helped the man back on to the boat.

They then brought both boats back to the city and the man gave a speech in the middle of the town to everyone, and declared himself the new leader of the town.

He told the guards that if they did not want to join him that they were free to leave, but all the guards decided to join him and then he declared that the citizens no longer had to pay unnecessary fake taxes.

He also had the throne removed, started to re-structure the government system, offered help to all the citizens, and made his two friends the head of his new security/police force; then I woke up.

A Little Place Called Paradise

Last night I only remembered a few pieces of two dreams or one dream & one semi-daydream.

All I remember is being in a kitchen, and I was looking out of a set of windows & maybe washing dishes in a sink.

John Jr As Jack Sparrow Getting Shot & Stabbed By Pirates

Last night I only remembered a few dream fragments, which did not go together really.

Dream 1

The first one I remember took place in a fictional version of LC, and some unknown person & I were driving around the city.

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.
