So I had a ridiculous dream last night. As my friend pointed out, I think it would be best to characterize it as A Hard Day’s Night, but starring the Walkmen instead of the Beatles.
I dreamed there was a movie about the Walkmen, and I was in it. It wasn’t a documentary — this was a narrative film, and the Walkmen starred as themselves.
Matt, Peter, Hamilton, Paul and Walter were all there.
It was like a screwball comedy. The Walkmen were just hanging out, having fun. I remember one scene in which they were playing video games. Another scene involved air hockey.
At one point, they were playing a concert. But everyone was on stage, except for Hamilton. Hamilton was in the middle of the audience, seated in a dingy folding chair, and he was singing from there. I guess he had a microphone, so people were still able to hear his vocals. It was absurd. It’s hilarious to me now.
So during one scene I was hanging out with them, and I asked them, “Do you guys recognize me from all the shows I went to?”
