Dreams

Speech! Speech!

by on May.21, 2017, under Dreams

The dream started out odd enough already. A bunch of friends, notable appearances by Ed and Kyle, which fit the theme of what will be described later, staying at a house getting ready for a challenge reality show. Nothing majorly worth mentioning at this point because it’s like a resort hotel, warm locale, the sun is shining, everyone in shorts and t-shirts.

Flash forward to the next scene where we’re competing athletically through a training course. Physical tests of endurance and strength, though really it looked like a wipeout course. This when I start noticing what looks like WWE signage around and a few of the judges being WWE staff. Triple H and Stephanie McMahon are there as is Daniel Bryan. I do average on the course, fall where most guys fell, certainly not enough upper body strength to dead lift another person my size. So as far as dreams go, this one was pretty spot on in terms of realism of my physical abilities.

After those test, we’re all in a sound stage and we’re told that we’re going to be given two minutes to talk. No prompt for anything, just two minutes. The three aforementioned members of the WWE are sitting there taking notes. A few of the other performers are given their mics, a timer starts and then a buzzer goes off when their time is up. I don’t remember any of the other competitors or what they say. Flash forward and my turn comes up.

I take the mic and start walking across the stage as I begin talking.

“This business is about creating memories. I want to create moments for people. Sure I’m 34 and possibly past my prime for in ring action, but I can take a bump and I sure as hell can spit it out on a mic. I will train harder than anyone and I will do what helps drive the story. It’s all about telling the story. Everyone remembers the ending of Flair vs HBK and where they were when the Taker’s streak ended. I can be the next big mouth piece and craft stories that lead to those moments. There is a video out there of Heyman talking about the conspiracy of how no one really knows if the streak was supposed to end, if it was scripted that way, or if Brock just decided to say fuck it and ended the streak on his own. The storytelling that he pulls off with his words is magical.”

I cross the stage and start walking towards Triple H, Steph, and Daniel. I took note of how much time I had left and remember distinctly seeing 45 seconds on the clock.

“I’m able to do that with my words, I’ll craft stories and tales with more twists and subplots than an M. Night Shyamalan movie. I’ll create visions with words and actions believable so that kids can grow up knowing they can make it. If an every-man like I can enter the squared circle, they will believe it too. Every kid who has ever grown up watching wrestling has hoped of meeting their heroes and shaking their hands.”

At this point I’m standing in front of Triple H and I stick my hand out to him. He smiles and goes to grab it and I pull my hand, look him dead in the eyes and say,

“For others, they become equals and challenge them on their own stage.”

I drop the mic and the timer goes off. The other competitors go nuts, Daniel smacks Triple H on the arm and Stephanie has a hand covering her mouth and wide eyed. I don’t remember much else after this aside from hearing Stephanie say, “That took a lot of heart, reminds me of someone here.” Probably referring to Daniel.


I woke up shortly after, but what I wanted to make sure I captured was the speech. It felt so raw and so true. I didn’t stutter, my pauses were perfect, it was the first time I’ve had to do any sort of “public” speaking in almost 5 years. I almost dare say I miss it a little bit. To hold the attention of people, to be in center spotlight, it’s empowering to me.

We have to get to Paris!

by on Nov.23, 2011, under Dreams

Here’s another one from the strange dream category.

I was on Vacation (I’m using this term loosely) with Chrystal, Steve, and Diana we were there for a short amount of time, but I couldn’t really remember for what reason. I do remember that were were on a lake in some wooded area when there was a wolf attack, like 4 packs of 4, but we jumped in the lake and swam across and they didn’t get to us. So we slowly made our way to somewhere in Germany. All the while trying to hire a sniper (this part I can attribute to this week’s episode of Castle).

I woke up with a very intense feeling of having to get back to Paris from Germany. Fell back asleep and the dream continued. People in my dream spoke French, I remember asking a bus drive “Parlez-vouz Anglais?” And found out there was a bus that would take us to the bullet train station that would get us back to Paris on time to catch our flight.

Sometimes my dreams are more entertaining than TV shows now a days. I fear that the future generation will not have the ability to be “bored” and let their imagination run wild.

I’m a violent person

by on Jun.26, 2009, under Dreams

I didn’t think I’d really be, but my dreams tell me otherwise.

So for the first night all week I was finally able to sleep through the night. Mon/Tue I was still awake at 2 in the morning. Tue/Wed I woke up at 2 in the morning. Wed/Thur again woke up at 2 in the morning. I was usually back asleep by 3, but man it was annoying. So this dream I had…. very strange.

I was back in Saskatoon, chilling with some friends, none of whom I really recognized except that they were friendly to me. We were on Broadway by the Roastery getting coffee and what not to go. I hear this group of kids start talking about some violence against someone and start describing me. I walk out away and these 3 follow me. I see my brother behind them as well. I turn around as one of them takes a swing at me, I duck and shove him to the ground, not wanting to fight. The other two, seeing my brother there don’t do anything. This kid gets up and charges at me, grabs me around the waist and then proceeds to lift me up and run for about 10 feet before driving me into a wall. At this point I’m pretty pissed. I shove us off the wall and in the process put my hands around his head and force it down so we land, essentially on his head. I then proceed to hold his head and smash it onto the cement a few times until I’m sure he’s not fighting back any more, must have been at least 7 or 8 solid hits. I get up, look at my brother and say, “Thanks for backing me up bro.” I don’t even remember what he said, but the scene ended there. The rest of my dream is a bunch of gibberish, but I was surprised when I woke up. I always knew that if I got into a fight and I didn’t take the first swing I’d unleash, but I’m pretty sure in this scenario, I could have stopped on smash 4 or 5….

Man I have vivid dreams ๐Ÿ˜›

My dreams could be movies

by on May.13, 2009, under Dreams

I swear in the past two nights I’ve had the most active and entertaining dreams in a long time, probably having something to do with what’s going on in my life and movies I’ve seen.

First dream: Resident evil style, being chased and trying to kill this mutation that looked like it was an elongated human with no real threat to us except chasing us down and trying to smash us with his really long head. Kinda weird and really freaky, it was like his right side of the body was 1/2 melted away. I remember running through this chemical plant facility trying to get away from it with an energy weapon in hand. I also had a female sidekick (what a shock) that was with me, but I don’t remember much of her, too nondescript to have a major impact except she was a great help in setting up the trap that got the thing. Anyway back to the sidekick and trapping this monster/thing. Running between these huge chemical vats we were able to lose the thing but saw one of those electric panels that have power cables running in them (like the ones Frank Grimes grabbed onto). She then went to work taking the cover off this thing and I went to get the attention of the monster. Wouldn’t you know he was right around the corner…. anyway running back to her I get yanked from the side into where she was hiding and the monster goes sliding by on grease she had left on the floor, headfirst into the open open panel. We stood there waiting for the thing to start frying, but it doesn’t happen, the monster slams headfirst into it, but no charge, it starts to get up and looks around for us….. my imagination doesn’t want this to be easy it seems. As any clichรฉd hero would do, I quip, “Don’t you just hate it when things don’t work the way you want them to?” We run out of the hiding spot and climb a set of ladders that leads to the metal walkways above the vats and start booking it for what we think is the exit. The monster of course is agile enough to jump up onto the walkway in front of us. Remember that energy weapon I had? Lady hero jumps up onto the rafters, I follow, flip upside down hang by legs and charge up the weapon. Remember, I said metal walkways. Weapon meets the walkway and the monster gets shocked and like most movies, falls into one of the open vats and starts melting from the what I assume to be acid. Don’t remember much after this, moving up through the compound eventually making it to the surface where I wake up shortly after.

Second dream: You know those castle defense games? Think of those, the castle was very cartoony and this dream had a lot of people that I see in real life, a lot of my friends, also had the terrain of the “alien planets” the original Star Trek series contained (I have not seen the new movie yet). Anyway a few of my friends and I set off in front of the castle armed with a myriad of weapons to fight these oncoming waves upon waves of indistinguishable monsters that are coming at us. Think of little blobs of something that are slowly evolving. As we kill them, more and more appear in more advanced lifeforms. Started off as little frogs, then into toads, then into some kind of snake like thing, then into a really thin komodo dragon with one giant fang. Why so descriptive on that one? Because I got caught by one and had it’s fang go through my left forearm. It hurt like a bitch… Managed to fight off the monster and killed it, eventually the waves stopped. Side note:I woke up this morning and had to check my arm to make sure there was no hole in it. Next thing I know we’re getting dropped on another castle and it starts all over again. Who needs video games when you can have dreams like these? ๐Ÿ˜€ Don’t really remember how the dream ended, but I was back home, sleeping, then I woke up (in the dream) and saw my friends there with me tending their wounds, I follow one of my friends outside to talk about something, saw a bright light, and woke up (not in the dream).

This is from a post last year, but it falls under this category so I’m posting it again, because it was totally awesome.

So I had the strangest dream last night that I was a knight in King Authur’s court and we were defending the castle from 2 dragons, red and blue.

I remember this one part where the red dragon had a good chunk of the army caught in an open area on the top of the castle and started sweeping with fire. I ran and ducked into an opening so I wouldn’t get burned. All of a sudden I was really high up and the blue dragon was underneath and about to fill that area with flame. I jumped out what felt/looked like a good 40 feet, bounced off the dragon and rolled safely.

I then run towards a group of civilians/peasants as the dragon was breathing and for some reason thought I could protect one of the women by hugging her and having the flame go around me. Flame hits, it’s hot, she burns in my arms and I’m still alive. As this woman is dying in my arms she mentions something to the effect of, “her heart has always belonged to me” and I flash back to a memory of her and I sharing a moment in the castle, it wasn’t sexaual or anything, just a moment that we’re passing in the castle. Possibly the first time we saw each other. As she passes on I lay her body down and I feel the anger inside me rise. I turn around, grab a sword off the ground to charge the blue dragon and see the red dragon fall from the sky and land in the middle of the castle with a crash that shakes the ground enough for me to stop to regain my stance. The blue dragon that I’m charging at takes off, flying away. Next thing I know Arthur is in a field and I go to talk to him, but before I can get any words out my alarm goes off. Talk about a bummer…

That’s all I can remember from it, but wasn’t I right? It could have been an awesome action scene in a movie.

And they say imagination is dead, not bloody likely ๐Ÿ˜›
