“L.A. Life” -Dream Digitizer

I’ve never had dreams about Los Angeles since moving here, but I had my first one this morning. A way to make ends meet down here is to work the grind of audience casting. My friend, Kevin, does this and he’s taught me a lot about it (considering I used to go to audience gigs inadvertently for free).

 

So it’s no surprise that my first dream of Los Angeles was in this setting. I was a member of a four-person pub trivia team for a televised game show. Here, we all answered a series of questions on a sheet of paper, and then we’d hand in our answers to a host very similar to Alex Trebek.

18- “Timecop” #52PickUp 2017

*Guys, Timecop predicted the Presidency of Donald Trump.

My love of time travel concepts goes deep. So deep in fact, that I decided to revisit a time travel movie masked as a 90s cheesy action film. Or is it the other way around? Which is it, Timecop? And are you any good still?

 

Timecop Poster 1
Cool poster. They must have had myriad concepts from which to choose.

 

Timecop doesn’t waste any time getting into the action. The film opens with a theft of Gold Buillion in the year 1863. All looks normal until the robber pulls out advanced plasma guns to wipe out the transport team. Clearly, he’s not from that time or the present day of 1994. Wait, in what year is the future of Timecop?

As it turns out, the plates did indeed still belong to the Cadillac. For whatever reason, Dad hadn’t changed them over. He did have the insurance though, so I knew I could at least contest that. But what about that stupid “transportation?” Ugh, this sucked more than anything has ever sucked before.

 

Instead of worrying about the impending court hearing, I tried to focus my attention on more pressing matters– My first classes of college, my camerawork, staying warm, and our upcoming Halloween Party.
