some dreams are extremely dumb and not worth talking about
Had another dream where I woke up angry.
I had won a contest to co-star in an amateur sketch comedy pilot that would take a week to film, but it was during finals week and I found out I’d have to re-take the current year of school after I accepted the contract.
The content of the script was head-smashingly stupid bro shit, and I was expected to use a funny voice and have a catch phrase. My stage name was “big gulp.”
So I argued with the producer during rehearsal that I should be allowed to punch up my lines, to which he balked and said the writers were artists. I then asked if I could be taken off cast and put into a writer’s room to fix this dog shit script. He said the time it would take to replace me and start rehearsals all over would put them so far behind schedule that they’d have to shutter production before finishing the pilot.
I was pissed that I’d have to go to another year of school to make up for doing this bullshit project that would obviously fail and I was helpless to fix.
