Big-budget dreams

Me likes me dreams… I tend to dream big things. I had my own personal aircraft carrier off the coast of Oregon two nights ago; that same night, I imagined some guy alone on an island or peninsula with an abandoned small plane, and the guy blew it up apparently out of pique. Didn’t he ever see that Disney film with the crashed upside-down plane that got made into shelter? (Let’s see: Internet Movie Database lists the flick as "The Last Flight of Noah’s Ark," and the crash survivors converted the wrecked plane into a boat. Forgive me, it’s been 23 years since I saw the film. Misspent youth…) I’ve even been exploring a particular big city in my dreams for several years; this recurring location’s kind of a cross between Seattle and a more northern San Francisco. Much of the city is on a hill sloping down steeply to a harbor and more level land across the water. Lots of bridges, lots of boats, and lots of precarious, hairpin-turn-filled freeways in this place. It feels like a big city, but now that I think of it I can’t picture it having big buildings. It sprawls. It covers a lot of ground. It’s in dream-land, it can cover plenty of ground! Last night wasn’t as sprawling, dream-location-wise; I was hanging out and chatting with Simon Pegg, the guy who starred in and co-wrote the horror-comedy "Shaun of the Dead." (I need to see that film.) More of a one-on-one, wandering-around-a-college-campus-like-place kind of a dream. He also seemed to be a Big Big Star by the time of the dream – think, I dunno, Harrison Ford. Is this a predicting-things dream? These words are on the web, we can wait and see…
