I had the most messed up dream last night...
...I dreamnt that I went back in time to 1998 and I was in a huge shopping mall (Sawgrass Mills in Fort Lauderdale to be exact, the biggest outlet mall in the world) and my goal... gee, is it to score a GameCube, score some chicks?
No. The whole point of me going back in time was to score 'Spinal Tap: The Criterion Collection'
What the hell?

I've actually dreamed about DVD releases. Zardoz comes to mind.

I had a dream just the other night that I had the E.T. DVD and it did in fact contain the original theatrical cut.
Too bad I didn't get to watch it before waking up.

Funny, we were just talking about Jeff Ulmer in another thread. I actually posted here about a dream I had about a month before the Zardoz street date. In it, I somehow managed to cajole Jeff into forking over his check-disc copy of the DVD that Fox's Peter Staddon sent to him. When I opened the case, however, the disc was smudged and scratched and unplayable. That was the dream.
The resulting thread got kind of big--with Peter Staddon chiming in that, upon reading the thread, he had been tempted to send me an artproof copy of the Zardoz disc; the mock disc was put together by the Fox art department, so Peter could approve the label artwork. The shiny business side of the disc, on the other hand, was unencoded--a blank. Peter mentioned that he held off on doing this at the last moment. Jeff jumped in, smiley-face icons galore, gleefully pointing out how "positively cruel" Peter's idea was.
They enjoyed my suffering.

I used to have a dream, back in the laserdisc days, of finding a huge laserdisc store in my town with all the titles selling for like 9.99.
At the time I lived in Augusta, Ga and there were NO stores like that. Only two places sold Laserdiscs in Augusta, Camelot Music and Suncoast Video and they both had seriously pitiful selections. I had to order all my discs online. There weren't even any video stores that rented them.
I had that dream many times. I'd be out driving and find this imaginary laserdisc warehouse type store. God it was a great dream.

I've never have dreams about dvd, damn women get in the way!
But I would like to have a dream that I go FOREWARD in time, so I can get the entire 'Star Wars' SERIES, 'Indiana Jones' trilogy, 'Back to the Future' trilogy, and 'Titanic' First Class Edition on dvd, and bring them back to the present!

I actually had a dream where I had somehow acquired the Back to the future 5 disc?? Boxset.
I was ecstatic that there were 2 more movies in the series!
Then.. I went to play them and they didn't fit in the DVD player(just a tad too big, and the tray wouldn't close). Now thats messed up!

You know what pisses me off about dreams sometimes, it's when your having a dream where you aquire alot of money, and it's absolutly real to you, your totally convinced that it's reality, and then...
YOU WAKE UP!, and realize your still poor!

I have those dreams too John, and yes I am usually depressed the whole day.
Sometimes they seem so real, you just want to cry when you wake up
