Gus Van Sant has seen my vagina.
I never write down my dreams, let alone blog about them, but this one is film related and I find it worthy of recording for posterity.
I transitioned from one dream to another and I found myself in a desert town that looked very Terry Gilliam-ish. There were a few people around and all of a sudden I spot Gus Van Sant.
I said, “Hey Gus Van Sant, what are you doing here?”
Gus answered, “I want to make a movie with that guy.”
He pointed at an old man that just sat there and was completely uninterested in his surroundings. So Gus asked me to help him make the movie. You can imagine how excited I was. My first impulse was to Tweet about it but I didn’t have a computer. Gus and I walked around the town trying to find cast and crew members.
We came up to a goofy woman and he said, “You! You’re gonna be the AD.”
I said, “Are you sure about that Gus?”
He said, “Any movie I make outside the studio system, I do like this.”
I said “Oh, that explains Gerry.”
I looked down and I noticed I wasn’t wearing a bottom. No pants, no skirt, no underwear. We continued on our search for cast and crew and although they noticed I was al fresco, no one said anything or seemed to care. To make matters worse, I kept on bending over to pick up stuff.
Gus and I then went to the “production office” which was a wooden shack right out of a Western. He had a laptop and I noticed he was already tweeting about the new film. I felt envious. I asked him if I could send a tweet and he said, “No, we’ve got a lot of work to do.” I sat down on the desk, legs dangling and as I look up I see Gus’s horrified face. I looked down and my legs were open.
He said, “Is that what it looks like?!”
I remembered that Gus was gay, so my panic subsided.
I told Gus, “Yes, but they come in all shapes and sizes.”
He said, “Oh.”
And that’s all I remember.
Maybe someone can enlighten me and let me know what all this means.
