We are such stuff as dreams are made on
First thing first. Shakespeare was right: we are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep.
Yesterday, I was chatting with someone over coffee. My interlocutor was worried about his growing addiction to social media, how to get more likes on his posts and stuff like that.
During the night, I dreamed about a movie, one of my favorites: Coffee and Cigarettes (Jim Jarmush: 2003) in which RZA of the Wu-Tang Clan and Bill Murray have a conversation about the dangers of caffeine and nicotine. A hilarious clip kept coming back in my sleep.
- RZA: Did you know they use nicotine for an insecticide? To kill bugs?
- Bill Murray: I mean, it’s good if it kills bugs, right?
- RZA: Are you a bug, Bill Murray?
I woke up laughing.
What a movie! Smart and wacky at the same time, which is rare.
