in your dreams
I think it must be because I'm filled with anxiety about playing Oblivious live tomorrow night, but I had a crazy dream about opening for becky. Unfortunately, DreamKeanu didn't show up to give me tips on the solo.
Have I ever mentioned that this whole Keanu thing started with a dream? I mean, I've always enjoyed Keanu's work. If it was a choice between 3 or 4 movies that looked good on a Saturday night, I'd pick the one that had Keanu Reeves in it, but that was about it. The internet changes fandom just by the ease of information flow. I'd never heard of Dogstar before I started surfing Keanu websites, didn't know his birthday, etc. Eventually, the more I learned about him in my waking hours the more I realized that he was fascinating and someone I could both admire and respect.
Ah, but we're talking about dreams here.
Anyway, the very first night I did a search on Keanu, I was up very late browsing pictures and reading tidbits. When I finally fell asleep I had one of the most vivid dreams I'd ever had. I hadn't seen The Matrix yet, but he had on the long coat (which I'm sure was influenced by the pictures I'd saved onto my drive that night) and was leading me through a typical Tim Burton-esque dreamscape (lots of angular staircases, extreme proprtioned doorways, etc) and every once in a while he would have to fight something off while I crouched by his feet. I remember still that he would reach down and touch my head as he was fending off whatever it was that was menacing us, then he would grab my hand and pull me to run some more. I remember being able to smell him in the dream, and the only way to describe it is that he smelled like power. The dream stuck with me the whole next day. I would be driving and my thoughts would drift into replaying it, trying to figure it out.
Now, I don't really assign anything mystical to it. I don't think he came to me in my dreams or anything. I don't think I believe in that. I do think that something about him triggered something in my subconciousness, and just like a tiny chemical Joel Silver, the little producer in my greymatter saw potential and said "This. This man-symbol, this splendiferous icon has got IT. She'll pay attention to the message if I put it in this envelope."
And since then, I know that some of my dreams of him are my brain working out things that I really need to pay attention to. Of course, some of them are my subcon just giving me a little treat as well (frankly, it still owes me for a "Gene Wilder in a bathtub" thing that took a week to recover from).
The last Keanu dream I had was that I was his assistant, and he was really clingy. Like, I would get up and try and walk away and he would grab me by my shirt and pull me back down to sit next to him. Interpret that however you will. I took it as a sign that I should work through my latest bout of writer's block and continue with this website.
Anyway, today needs to be all about the practicing for me because I don't need to dream about being naked onstage with a bass made of ice again, so I'm inviting you to share your dreams. They don't even have to be Keanu ones.

No writers block anywhere. Thanks for sharing this krix.
I love the way you write - so free, so able to express yourself more than I ever can.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.
You are my inspiration.....
In my dreams *cough* there's no such thing as a writer's block for you, Krix!
I hope you'll be able to continue this for a looong time!!
LOL@ Gene Wilder!!!
Keeping my fingers crossed for tomorrow
Well...I had a most strange experience and way of "getting to know" Keanu...
When I saw Matrix I which I only did because a friend asked me to accompany him, I did not think him a special person or even an attractive man!
But then in the night afterwards I had a really extraordinary dream about him.
I was sitting in a train, destination somewhere...I went through the train to find the bar or the restaurant and then I saw him coming towards me, we met in the middle of a futuristic and silver cabin....he looked straight into my eyes and I just thought, wow, that is this actor of the movie I saw earlier this evening....his eyes were like magnets that forced my eyes to look deeper and ever deeper....and then he kissed me.....or rather we kissed...
I never experienced such a kiss in all my life...although I am a kisser more than anything...
i sensed that all my cell nuclei in my body were exploding with heat, melted and started revolding in a very different way....
was a long and intimate kiss...when our lips parted we still looked into each otherīs eyes and he said: this was the kiss of blood!
and when I woke up I still did not know that I thought him a handsome and amiable person....
just when I had watched Matrix II, I suddenly felt that ...well you know what...*blush* we all feel I guess...well I guess it was a silly dream after all...but then it was an innocent one, as I had never been aware of having found him covetable...I am just a shy little girl still...;-))) although being almost his age
this was my first keanu dream that I shared with you!
Here it is a full hot summer night in Germany and I hope I did not bore you!
just wanted to say another thing, Krix...I love your site! *smiles brightly*
lots of love
Hey Krix ...
In the two years I've been interested ... okay ...
extremely interested in Keanu, I've had one dream about him. It was X rated! And I'm so happy about that!
i love this dream, krix. you've told us about it before, and the part where he puts his hand on your head (for reassurance?) just makes me melt! you have such lovely vivid dreams. i seldom have keanudreams anymore -- he just doesn't visit me as much as he used to. *sigh* i miss him...
Do you ever have dreams that are so much like reality you canít tell where the dream stops and reality starts? Well I had one like this last year about Keanu. Say what you will, but it still seems so real to me...
This dream was in living color it was so vivid... In my dream, a very wise and powerful friend I have known for a very long time told me that I should meet Keanu Reeves. Now my friend is very wise, but in no way is he a psychic...he doesnít believe it that stuff and neither do I. However, he told me that I needed to meet Keanu because he needed to know me. He also said that not only did Keanu need to meet me and want to meet me, but that when we met, he would be amazed by me and I by him. I promptly perceived myself and my friend to have gone quite crazy. But after my friend encouraged me a bit more, I took his advice. In my dream, my friend turned out to be right. In my dream I was amazed by Keanu, and Keanu was amazed by me. But still, I was even more amazed by my friend.
It was a very vivid dream, more like reality really. After this dream, I found your website Krix.
...I once met Keanu at a gig...was it a dream or is it reality ;-)
My dreams are almost always bad.
I once had a dream so vivid and so colorful, I woke up crying and screaming.
I dreamed my kids had been killed in a car accident and they way I found out was their little ghosts came home with backpacks still on and told me to come see what had happened. They ran out the door and up the street and I was following these little shadows of my kids and then I saw it. The twisted metal wreckage and two bicycles and flames.
The little shadows disappeared as police ran to me to stay away from the scene.
Occasionally, I have nice, sexy dreams but most of them, are scary in some way or another. Haunted houses, murderers, war etc etc.
I know, I have issues...lol
How amazing that you choose to talk about dreams just when I've had a most interesting one. Last night I had a dream that Nicole Kidman and I were hanging out and making animal puppets out of cloth and odds and ends we would find. I still can't figure it out.
I am glad you are over your block Krix -- I enjoy dropping into your very creative virtual home even if I don't say much.
I don't dream much -- lately though I have had dreams about a man from a foreign country -- a very persistent dream. I do not dream about Keanu Reeves.
krix, thank you for sharing your beautiful dreams..and you write so well! No blockage there... I will join Niobe in sending many wishes your way for good practicing.
As for dreams--alas! I hardly ever (I mean, really hardly ever) remember them. I suppose I must have them, since science says we do, but...And I've never had a keanudream *sob*...
My only dream that I remember is a recurring dream of being in a City. I should know my way around this city (It is some part of North London), but I'm lost, and very uncomfortable. That's all. But it always sticks in my mind, when I wake up, that I was in that City again, because I feel..unhappy and lost, in a particular way.
I guess I'll just have to write my own dreams...
Wow enjoyed reading everyones dreams very cool and interesting. I am glad also that I am not the only one that dreams about Keanu!
I have had a dream (each time similiar) that I met Keanu and I am so damn excited I can't even talk. So I stand there like a dunce and he fills in the words for me. He says; "You want me to autograph that"? I nod yes. I smile from ear to ear and he smiles back. Then I really go into shock (partially because I am just as shy as he is) then he says; "You want a hug too"? I am melting as he hugs me and smiling, and he smiles back. FINALLY I say; "I think you are so beautiful, talented and sexy, I enjoy all your work, you are so sweet, thank you". He says; "Thank "you", very much".
I get ready to leave and he smiles again and says; NO stay, stay here I will be right back. He went to sign some autographs and came back. He then grabs my hand and I can barely move until I realize this is him holding my hand! To make this dream short (because it isn't) he keeps me hidden in his hotel room, then I fly home with him and stay with him. Everything is so beautiful, intense and we are so connected, yet some Xrated! He is so caring, sweet and gives me his sole attention through the whole dream. Whew! I sure wish it would come true! This man can overwhelm you with his eyes and everything else in his essence!!
I have really odd dreams sometimes, and they usually foreshadow something in a weird way that makes me think I'm psychic. Probably coincidences though... right? Well I can't really remember any interesting dreams at the moment but i'll be sure to share one later (I love talking about dreams!) when I'm not so distracted by a cadjillion things going on... Krix, I think I need a tugging Keanu to focus too...
wow.... all these are such deep and lovely recountings of dreams...i have had many warm, and/or sexy and/or embracing keanu dreams(meaning ones while i sleep)... but none specificly come to mind at this moment.. and i know i had one a couple of nights ago.... but there was one time where i,not dreaming, but was in that inbetween state sort of waking up... when i felt a beautiful kiss...in fact this kiss was what woke me out of actual sleep, like a fade-in to a scene, but it was a feeling, but i was really being kissed, but... ... it was very direct and nonwavering...soft but strong and very present and was of such a nature that, as i became more and more aware that i was consciously experiencing this, i did not want this kiss to end... so i put my entire beingness of that moment into that kiss, holding on to the feeling of the love...the purity and essentialness of it...having glanced around for the clock, (what time is it?!!)probably to see if i was really awake... i noticed that it lasted for about 20 minutes...a very deep impression and memory... oh it was real... even though i did awake to just me...
i muse now and then that it was a keanu kiss, but only he will know that one for sure!!!!
...I once met Keanu at a gig...was it a dream or is it reality ;-)

believe it shelz!! it's a reality!!!
I've really enjoyed reading about everyone's dreams (or lack thereof). :) There's one dream I had earlier this year that turned me into someone's fan (no, not Keanu). I had a dream where Jimmy Fallon (from Saturday Night Live) made me laugh. I mean, just cracking me up in my sleep. We were just hanging out and laughing and laughing. I even remembering laughing out loud (while sleeping). The next morning I thought this was odd as yes, I had seen Jimmy Fallon here and there, but never really paid much attention to him. Well, from then on out I started watching Saturday Night Live and sure enough he cracked me up in the skits that he did. I've even forgiven him for doing Keanu impersonations (though I think he does it in a respectful manner-as opposed to some others). :) It was just sort of out of the blue. I guess I needed to laugh or something? Sadly, this year was Jimmy Fallon's last season on SNL, but I look forward to seeing him in the movies (Taxi is his next film, with Queen Latifah, and it looks hilarious!).
The other "recurring" dream I have is where I'm in school and I have to take a "test" or I fail. I HATE this dream. I think it has to do with me feeling stagnant or something. Anyways, interesting topic. :)
I dreamt about Keanu a couple of times but the most wierd one I'll share.
He lived in my old neighbourhood in a very little house and I decided to go to that house and ask him for an autograph. When he opened the door he looked like a get-some-sleep Thomas Anderson and he wasn't nice at all. He most;y isn't very nice in my dreams. H's just there but he never talks much. Like background decoration...
This is very cool, Krix. Well, as you know I'm a psychic although I don't talk about it much on the Internet so I've had many vivid and waking dreams that are astounding, including ones with Keanu. He and I are just very good friends in my dreams and I do spend a lot of time with his entourage. There was one dream where the entire film crew for the Matrix was in my parents backyard and I came home and started talking with Keanu's cook. Three or four of his assistants were waiting to take me to see Keanu but his cook was explaining some recipes and I really wanted to hear what he had to say. Everyone was amazed that I wasn't rushing off to meet Keanu, especially the cook, who seemed happy to be talking to me.
One amazing thing I'll share -- not quite a dream -- is I started writing a screenplay that was initially inspired by Keanu's work and the protagonist was clearly to be played by Keanu. I wrote a scene where the lead gets cut on his belly and then it heals, leaving a scar. About two days later, Krix, was when you posted "Ode to a Belly Scar." Up until your post I had no idea Keanu had a belly scar and I had just written that scene...
anyways, I feel really vulnerable talking about this - LOL! (stuff you only talk about at 4 am in the morning)
"I remember being able to smell him in the dream, and the only way to describe it is that he smelled like power."
WHOA...what a way to describe him. I'm gonna remember that. Fantastic.
y'all have had some interestin dreams.....which is really groovy :).....i have, however, never had a keanudream (that i can remember anyway) *pitiful huh?*
but i doesn't mean i don't daydream...do those count?? daydreams about keanu?? i dunno....but i spend a lot a time in my head w/ keanu if that will suffice LOL i'd tell you more...but im too shy to go further into detail... so....i guess thats it....lol
Maybe you dream about him that way Shanice because you donít actually talk directly, so it appears in your dream as a muffled conversation? Maybe you should change that! LOL!
Myself, I dream almost every night, and most of my dreams are very vivid and in color. I can remember many of them after I wake up. Count this as strange, but many times I dream things that actually happen in the future. This has happened to me many times since I was quite young. From each one of these dreams I awake asking myself why I would dream such crazy things, because at the time of the dream the content makes absolutely no sense. Because they seem so strange I usually tell someone about them for a laugh, later to find out why they seemed so funny. These dreams are not premonitions, and I donít think they have a purposeÖthey simply are. An example of one of these dreams coming true happened as recent as two days ago in regard to the topic Krix posted. The dream was about the nature of the topic of this entry...strange eh? I had this dream sometime last year, and I had never even seen this website before. Keanu was also in my dream, and he was leading me places and showing me things, I also did not know why Keanu was in my dream and I thought it was because I had just seen Matrix Reloaded in the theater. When I awoke, I laughed at this dream as I thought it was funny why I would dream about the content of a website entry, and why Keanu would be in my dream.
*theme from Twilight Zone starts playing in the background* LOL!
...Iíve had other dreams about Keanu, I canít tell them here, but I prefer my daydreams because in them I get to make it up ;-)
*Maybe you dream about him that way Shanice because you donít actually talk directly, so it appears in your dream as a muffled conversation? Maybe you should change that! LOL!*
=D Hahha, well I actually talk too directly sometimes, so I doubt it
Anyway I had a very crazy dream last time. I knew I dreamt and I just thought"hey, I'm dreaming, let's have a look what klind of street names I make up in my subconcious"(dunno the correct term..) and then i walked to a bar with the name Constantien and I waited there. It was creepy and great...everyone should have it once...!
Wild stuff, just last night I dreamt about Mr. Reeves. It was at a Becky concert and if you knew all the songs Keanu would do snippets of you got a kiss. I won. Not sure what that means but it was lovley.
Krix, I do love the way you write. Thanks so much for this site, don't know what I'd do without it.
Well, I have had a recurring dream for years now. This particular dream does indeed involve our engaging Mr. Reeves (as he looked when he portrayed Ted "Theodore" Logan in Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure). He and I are standing in the backyard of the house in which I spent my adolescence, side by side, arms outstretched and fingertips juuuuuust brushing. We both have our heads thrown back and faces to the sky. We look at each other briefly, huge smiles on our faces, then we turn our eyes skyward, close them and think reeeeeaaaalllly hard... then we begin to fly, rising up(ala Superman)every so slowly, moving upward and over the top of the giant maple tree, then over the power and phone lines and off through the neighborhood. I see the houses of the people I lived next to, just as they were then. Sometimes we go all over the place, sometimes we have trouble staying airborne, sometimes we just do loop-de-loops over the Big Field then move out across the creek and the woods. But always, if I begin to dip and to fall, he grabs my hand and keeps me afloat. I'm just shy of one year older than Keanu and I think it's kind of weird to have such dreams at almost 41, but there you have it. I always wake from these dreams feeling like I've had an adventure with my very best friend. Strange, but beautiful.
These are all really interesting, thanks for sharing your dreams, Keanu or otherwise.
Jude, You KNOW I'm trying to figure out who! (so many to chose from)*snerk*
Has anyone ever had a Keanu nightmare? I had one when he was really, really mean to me once. Then Bret showed up and gave me flowers and told him to stop.
I think "Keanu" and "Nightmare" are mutually exclusive LOL!
Keanu doesn't visit my dreams much either. The one and only time he was in my dreams (besides the times he sits in the background), he was a very sexy Neo. We were hanging out and I think he wanted me to go with him into the Matrix, and I was just going to take his hand. But one of my friend's relatives came ringing my doorbell a hundred times per minute for some reason... I forget why, and I had to go and get it. I think Dream Neo was offended by my leaving him there, so he never came back. And even when he did, he didn't say ne thing. I miss him, I wish he'd visit again!
I once had a very strange and vivid dream that I read an article about Keanu and his hardships and, for some reason, was so moved by it that I prayed God would send him a "true" friend. My dream then fast forwards several months when I find out that my own sister, whom I had never even had a discussion about Keanu with, had become his good friend. In my dream, I was utterly blown away by the fact that out of all the people in the world, my prayer was answered through someone so close to me! I woke up with goose bumps.
Jude, You KNOW I'm trying to figure out who! (so many to chose from)*snerk*
hehehe Krix -- I will never tell (but you have seen a pic)
How cool is this? All of these dreams about Keanu and just think, if it weren't for the internet how would we know of eachother?? I wonder of he ever FEELS the collective feminine sigh.....
My last dream was this....We (Keanu and me) were in school walking down the hall in a happy rush the feeling was of excitement and yearning(like true adolesence)...a rush of feelings...fun and joy was all around us and everything and anything was going to be good. And yes, the sexual tension was palpable...I was a step behind him as we walked this pleasurable pace and I could smell the warmth of his neck....and he turned and we smiled at eachother.....that was a good dream
