DREAM: Bill Maher’s voice is narrating but he appears on the scene as Paul Giamatti, a prominent figure and leader of a movement. I’m half watching the filming of the movie and half a part of it. In a hallway, peeking through a window into a huge coliseum where thousands of people are gathered around a stage to celebrate New Years—the whole place is dark with bright neon colored lights—a female host on the stage with a headset microphone wearing a flashy red outfit and an absurdly designed black hair wig. The vibe is that of a concert or TV show. I continue to walk around the perimeter of the coliseum—every now and then peeking through a window. Sometimes people notice me and recognize me as the Giamatti Maher fellow. I try to keep my distance from the chaos. At some point the event is over and people start meandering in the stairwell and leaving. A few girls are standing there half naked—their backsides to me. One of them is Keri Patrick (In waking life I used to have a crush on her in 7th grade). I say hi to her in an awkward unsure kind of way. Eye contact. She replies with the same. Moving on. I run into Aaron Lachman and start describing the dream to him as if I was already awake. Later, I’m in a medium sized room with tables and chairs set up—people sitting down and eating. I’m aware that the video camera is moving around. It’s understood that I play a part in the film or at least with the crew. I see Bill and Christy McCloud at a table curious as to what’s going on (In waking life they were my youth pastors from a long time ago). I get close to Bill McCloud and discreetly tell him, “This is going to be on a D-V-D.” I say it like it’s supposed to impress him.
