Ok, this has got to be the stupidest dream I’ve ever had...

I’ve been thinking about my dream last night all day.

I was in a mall with Robert Downey Jr. and we were buying a copy of WING COMMANDER 2 at an Electronics Boutique. So already this is A+ grade fuck-ed up-ed. The really personal strange thing is that this particular ElBo is VERY specific to me because it does not exist, and I have dreamed about it multiple times. It has a very distinct look. Kind of more like a high end jewelry store or something. Anyway, the guy at the checkout says to RDJ “you look really familiar” and I say “no shit, it’s because he plays...” and RDJ gives me this “don’t even” look. And I finish “...Charlie Chaplin”. So RDJ storms off out of the store. The sales clerk says “I think more people know him as Iron Man”. And I say “He goes out wearing these band T-shirts and thousand dollar Salvatore Ferragamo sunglasses and I tell him ‘dude, you LOOK like Tony Stark, what do you expect.”

So I have to go find RDJ because I’m thinking he’s my ride home. So of course, I go to the Goodwill next to the mall and he is buying a big stack of plaid shirts. I’m like “Rob, I’m sorry man, I didnt want to embarrass you. You know I really respect you as an actor and I think your dad’s movie is really important”- referencing the great Putney Swope. But he’s still mad, and he gets into this olive green hoopty ass car and drives off.

So I think shit, I’ve got to get on the subway, which is underneath the Goodwill as if the Goodwill were a stop. I go down there and as I’m walking down the hall, these hoodlums come running by carrying cartoonish burlap sacks with dollar signs on them. I’m like “it’s go time”. Because I am Spider-Man. Not Peter Parker. In fact, I’m thinking as I start slinging webs that it’s really fucked up that I’m just Michael Barnes, not Peter Parker. So while I’m swinging through this hall I somehow manage to call RDJ “You need to get down here right now!” I tear off my clothes and I’m wearing the Spidey-suit.

And down the hall comes not just Iron Man...but HULKBUSTER Iron Man. Firing missiles. The subway station is obliterated but somehow no one is hurt. He lands beside me and says “you didn’t have your mask on the whole time.”

And I say “aw man, I feel like such a chump!”

I have not seen Infinity War, so I don’t k ow if the above contains spoilers.

You had me at Wing Commander 2 (quite possibly my favorite nostalgia-based game of all time) but then lost me at Electronics Boutique (Babbage's was where it was at). Weak 7 out of 10.

A mall trip with Robert Downey, Jr. that doesn't result in someone getting a slush dumped on them is a failure.

It’s obvious.

You long for the nostalgic days of the past where doing cocaine off of a hooker was kind of normal, and your desire for large, well muscled men is seeping into that. Green or otherwise.

Videos, games, and complete destruction but no one is hurt. My guess is that this is about the MM fiasco. However, if I were your therapist I would start here:

I remember about 5 dreams per year, and they're never this fun.

You think this dream was stupid? I had one where Oliver North was president of the NRA


Hey! Your politics is in my peanut butter!!!


Also, when are we getting a Wing Commander or Rogue Squadron reboot? I miss those games

I find it odd that people like to use the word "dreams" to mean lofty goals, when dreams are usually random nonsense like this.

Go look up Star Citizen (more specifically Squadron 42) for your "Wing Commander" reboot...same creator (Chris Roberts) and feel.

RDJ was redirecting, he was just ticked you didn't pick up the voice pack expansion for Wing Commander.

If you're not naked all the time, it's not that stupid.
