Old Video Games | A Video Rental Store-Like House | Lost At A College

Dream 1

All that I can remember of this dream from last night is being inside a house that was like The E House, a former male schoolmate and one-time classmate of mine whose nickname was Jack Frost but I can not remember he real name lived there, and some of my family (my brother GC, and a few other family members) and I were there.

I remember maybe my brother GC and I following him to his room on an upper floor to play some old video games for the Super Nintendo (SNES) and Sega Genesis and maybe some other old video game consoles, and one of the video games that we played was an old Street Fighter video game.

I remember picking Ryu and I did not know the controls or moves for the game, I remember pausing to read some of the moves and controls, and I remember not knowing how to do my special attacks but that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 2

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day in a nice modern video rental store-like house with probably window-like walls, and my family and I seemed to be living there now.

It was a nice bright naturally lit place with a more modern minimalist maybe industrial-like style except for several shelves of VHS tapes, DVDs, maybe Blu-Rays, and various old and new video game formats.

We probably had recently moved in and we were still enjoying the new house, I remember my former male classmate DH visiting, and after he left a strange man with white skin with yellow hair arrived.

I remember him creepily telling me that he wanted to show me something, he somewhat looked like a fictional version of my former male classmate AK, but I did not recognize him at first so I paused for a moment because I was suspicious.

My mom recognized him and supposedly he was a former classmate of mine, I then remembered him or just assumed that I knew him because my mom did, and then I followed him to see what he wanted to show me.

I can not remember what he showed me but it was nothing creepy, I remember telling him how his approach was creepy and we joked and laughed about it, and then I probably gave him a tour of the house as we talked which is the same thing that I did when my former classmate DH visited earlier in the dream.

But that is all that I can remember of this dream.

Dream 3

All that I can remember of this dream is that it took place during the day at a college that seemed to be a fictional and larger version of MS University, I think that I was walking around with my brother GC trying to find were to pay for rent and utilities, and I recognized some areas and I remember telling old memories and explaining where certain things were.

I noticed that many things had changed and were different and were added now so I did not know where to go at some point so we got lost, I remember us walking around outside and through courtyards and through buildings, and inside one building we found an area were some people were waiting to pay or sign up for something at a window so we stopped.

At some point it was our turn and we learned that this was not the place that we were looking for so we continued our journey lost, eventually we found the housing building but they told us that this was where you paid for rent only, and that you had to pay for utilities at another building.

In the dream I used to go to this college and things were different back then, utilities were included with our rent so everything was paid together at the housing building, but it seemed that things had changed in the years since I left the college so we continued our journey to now find the utilities buildings which did not exist back when I went to the college.

We were lost as I searched for familiar places but so much was different, I found a few familiar things, but some things were backward and moved around and it felt like we were walking in circles and that maybe things were changing and reversing to keep us constantly lost.

We walked around and around, at some point I was with Danielle Dallaire from Double Toasted walking near where the medical clinic and library and bridge and some of the old dorms used to be, but now there was maybe a sports practice field and some other things.

I remember Danielle saying that everything was backwards and she said something about Spain and maybe that this was Spanish (a style not the language), something confusing and strange like that, and even in the dream this made no sense and I did not know what she was talking about except for the backwards part.

I asked her to explain what this backwardness had to do with Spain and Spanish (style), she started trying to explain this, but it still was not making sense to me so I focused on the backwardness instead.

I told Danielle that it was clear that something was strange and that things were moved around and different and that maybe we were moving around constantly in circles like a mirror or something was reflecting things to trick us, the backwardness was possibly evidence of this and I possibly saw strangeness with the horizon of maybe the scenery looking like part of it was a reflection from a different angle from behind next the the angle from the front like one was a reflection, but I woke up as we were talking about the strangeness which would have possibly led to me realizing that this was a dream.

Jean-Claude Van Damme’s Film Idea

I only remember part of the end of this dream because I was suddenly scared awake by accident when my body jumped like it did in the dream causing me to forget almost all my dreams and I only remember some of the end of this dream.

I remember being in a windowless board/meeting-like room that was possibly a bit restaurant-like, like a private room, and I was there with various people like: Grace Randolph from YouTube, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Antonio Banderas, an old man with metal dentures designed to look dangerous/tough/cool who was probably an old James Bond villain or henchman, and several other people.

There was probably a television screen on the wall on the right side of the room that probably played some film trailers/et cetera as we talked, ate, drank, et cetera; and one of the film trailers was for a new James Bond film, and I remember us talking about it and Grace seemed to be the organizer/whatever.

I remember Mr. Van Damme asking the old man who probably was an old James Bond Villain to show us his cool metal dentures, so he did this and they briefly talked about an old James Bond film, and then Mr. Van Damme told us about a film idea that he had; and he probably wanted everyone in the room to be in it, and some of his former film co-stars like Kylie Minogue.

Mr. Van Damme started describing the film and as he did this we were suddenly in the film, it took place during the day in the wilderness of Africa, and we had a line of various non-human animals with us including a tiger that we seemed to be escorting trying to reach a certain place; and we were walking on a narrow piece of land with one narrow river on our left side and one narrow river on our right side.

Mr. Van Damme and Mrs. Minogue were probably dressed somewhat like their characters from the film Street Fighter but I am not sure how the others and I were dressed, at some point the tiger and one of the other non-human animals (maybe a cow-like animal common in Africa) died of Ebola on the edge of the river on the left side, and no one wanted to touch their bodies so they floated in the river unfortunately.

We walked to the river on the right side and we stopped to talk about the situation, and I noticed some fish in the river that looked like common fresh water fish that I have seen before to my surprise/confusion like: the Bluegill and some other fish possibly in the Sunfish family.

As I was looking at some of the fish trying to eat an insect or something I heard Mrs. Minogue or Grace yell for me to watch out because an insect was flying toward me from behind, as I was turning the insect flew on my left shoulder, and I jerked/shook/moved my body while trying to knock it off me; but my body did the same thing in the real world causing me to jerk awake in a panic in bed because my body was doing the same thing that I was doing in the dream world like my body was no longer paralyzed for some reason.

This caused me to forget my other dreams and most of this dream.

The end,
