I Don't Even Want To Know What My Dreams Say About Me

I have weird dreams. Weird, weird dreams. Last night I had a weird one. I won't go into all of it, but in part of it, James Dean came to a Music Man rehearsal (anyone who regularly reads my blog will know how perfectly logical it is that I should have a dream about a celebrity visiting us). In the dream, Dean had recently lost his father and so refused to talk about East of Eden (which is mainly about a young man's relationship with his father). From what I know about James Dean as a person, the guy in my dream was very much like how he really was - not entirely pleasant.

Then I woke up and remembered that James Dean is dead, and that even if he were alive he would have been over seventy. I was sad and it put me in the mood to watch East of Eden again. The DVD is on my Christmas list... Here is a scene from the movie that I like a lot. I wouldn't say it's my favorite scene in the movie, but I do like it quite a lot.

Haha... silly Abra. "HI, CAL! Aron isn't here so I'm free to flirt shamelessly with my boyfriend's brother! Whee!" No, I'm kidding. I like Abra very much.

Long version:

Short version, for those who don't have the patience to watch all five and a half minutes!

Hmm, what else do I have to say tonight? I can't think of anything, so I'll leave this post hoping that you all don't think I'm a fangirl for having a dream about James Dean. Because I'm not. I'm a Cal Trask fangirl sometimes, that's all. ;)

Who doesn't have a soft spot for Cal? I do so love that film (I'm fond of the book, as well, though if I were to be objective I could only really give it three stars). The theme music is so beautiful and sweet.

It's my favourite of Dean's movies, and my favourite of his roles, though it could be argued that his performance wasn't as polished as in his two later films.

Clare - For what age would you recommend the book? Everyone I know who read Steinbeck too early have been completely turned off, but I really want to read East of Eden.

yay for video clips! : ) Ok, honestly, I have no clue what this movie is about but, after seeing the 5 and 1/2 minutes you have convinced me to go watch it : )

ok, so I watched it wow wow! I don't even really like old movies in particular, but I am totally a Cal fangirl after that! : ) His acting was just so intense, I loved it. Even just that scene at the beginning where he talks the girl into showing him where the door to his mom's room is, I just loved that : ) I don't know why, his acting was just amazing, lol : )
I'm glad you mentiond this movie, and reading about your dream now is all the more funny ; )
