Just a nonsense dream

Interesting, I remember arcade games in multiplexes in the fairly recent past, but I'm not sure if they're still a thing.

We took my nieces and nephews to the movies in a bigger town they had an arcade but it didn’t have half the stuff there was in the late 1990s . And the games were old. When we were kids arcades were a huge deal with packs of teenagers roaming around.

I had a strange Craig dream. In it I was attending the NTTD premiere in a big brightly lit auditorium. Daniel Craig was sitting next to me and had long blue hair. He then got on stage and introduced the film.

What does that one mean!
Bring back Bond!

I dreamed about this forum last night. The new Bond had been announced, and it was someone we approved of wholeheartedly. We were debating whether this forum had a future now that our "unique selling point" had gone.

I think it was very forward-thinking grabbing the classicbond.com domain name for the forum rather than having everything under DCINB. After all, one of the larger issues for our community are a perceived loss of focus in the scripts and characters on what originally made them so exciting and interesting in Fleming's books and the earlier movies. If we're lucky enough to see a proper return to that then, great, there'll be all the more for us to talk about here, rather than the same old gripes year after year.

I wholeheartedly agree Acid, I hope we can re-brand the DCINB website to Classic Bond as well, I'd say we don't even need to wait until Danny kicks rocks outta here.

Well, with Craig on his way out, we'll presumably have to change the name at some point.

Yes, but in my dream, she picked someone good, like Aidan Turner. I don't think he was specifically named in my dream, but since he's my first choice, it makes sense for it to be him.

Hobbit not Bond.com?
Honestly I thought Craig would have moved on long ago. Sadly his career stall about the same time Ms. Broccoli decided to put Bond movies on the back burner. Once or twice a decade they will make a movie. :roll:
The pace Sean and Roger made movies is astounding, says something about the work ethic of that generation of filmmakers.

I was surprised we could get the Classic Bond name, the hope is to keep the site going for the foreseeable future long after Craig is gone. Hopefully somebody gets control or EON/DANJAQ who cares about making James Bond movies again. :007:

I hope so as well, not only do I enjoy conversing with the group here, but I'd also like to have some positive Bond news to write about for once!

Why do I keep having the weirdest Bond dreams of all? This wasn't a Bond dream per se, but it contained some strange references to Bond vehicles.

In the dream some wealthy old man, that I don't know in my waking life, was preparing to have a party in their mansion and for some reason I'd been persuaded to help out with the preparations. This guy was very nostalgic for a particular brand of toy cars he had owned in his childhood and told me to go and buy a load of them to show off as a talking point for his guests (he sure knows how to party, huh? Apparently no-one told him, or my subconscious, there's a pandemic on as well).

I found the shop that specialized in these model cars and all the very old ones the guy would have liked were withdrawn from sale for some reason, so I started to look at the various new ones hanging up and was pleased to notice quite a number of James Bond themed cars. There were even three or more models just devoted to Connery's DB5. Each box had a closeup photo of a different gadget inside the car and the photos were very high quality so couldn't have come from the original movie footage, I suppose. The gadgets looked different to the actual ones in Goldfinger although I think there was an ejector seat.

Anyway, the really weird and I think funny bit of this dream is next to those DB5 models was a different toy with a photo of a vehicle speeding along a tree-lined road but the vehicle was absurdly disguised as a giant full-color statue of a man! :lol: It was scaled up to be about ten feet tall in the photo. Very puzzled and somewhat amused, I asked the shopkeeper about it, who enthusiastically insisted it featured in The Man With The Golden Gun and asked didn't I remember it, which of course I didn't.

As odd as it is, maybe it wouldn't be entirely out of place in that film, what with Bond disguising himself as a waxwork, Nick Nack disguising himself as a statue, and a car sprouting wings and flying. Then elsewhere in the Moore era there's the crocodile submarine, gorilla suit and of course the infamous Bondola. Even those make more sense than this though, it has to be said!

One thing that could be salvaged from this idea is Bond having to steal a parade float vehicle from a carnival and some sort of chase involving that, doubtless with the parade adornments getting smashed off. I don't think that's ever been done before.

Dreamt I was driving through the streets of Bristol in a sort of cross between the Delorean from Back to the Future and Bond's Lotus Esprit with an unidentified companion, possibly Bond. He was trying to escape from someone, and decided that we were going to travel to Dublin underwater, so he looked for a suitable place to drive into the harbour. I wondered if we would have enough petrol, but he reminded me that it was nuclear powered, like the Delorean. Incidentally, I looked it up in an online calculator, and the journey would take nearly a day non-stop. Fortunately, the underwater car had an autopilot that could plot the correct course. I imagine it would still be quite claustrophobic, though, and of course, no rest stops!
