I have interpretted dreams for a number of my friends over the years. One in particular was a recurring nightmare that a friend of mine actually went to a psychologist to interpret with no luck. I knew immediately what his dream was about and he stopped having the nightmare subsequently to my interpretation.
John, the smaller boat you were on represents your current band or gig. The larger boat represents a larger gig you'd perhaps like to have. Ce-lo and Winston Howell are in fact Ce-lo and Simon Cowell. Perhaps you've been watching "The Voice" and "American Idol." Everybody on the larger boat is listening to "boy band music." The clothes and the English Bulldog which is a "stage prop" represent superficiality. Notice in your dream you never get invited on to the larger boat. You wake up to piss because the situation "pisses you off." The entire dream represents your frustration with the superficiality of the pop music scene today.
The second dream is about further frustration as your missing strings hamper your ability to perform at a larger gig, Madison Square Garden.
IMO, this is what both dreams mean. Some dreams are merely your brain shedding electricity, they are meaningless. These two dreams are important. I understand and share your frustration and commiserate wholeheartedly.
Very interesting take... not entirely off-base
But, I would have thought his dream was simpler than that.. maybe a contrast between the little life and the big life. To me Thurston Howell is all the facade that the big life often presents... The big life is transient and two dimensional on so many fronts (hence the props)
JW...it seems you already have the 'best" life.. and your mind simply reconciles that fact by presenting a story that the 'big life' is of no importance or consequence (You didnt say if you felt lured by the Thurs ton image) .
Bob... I studied dream interpretation years ago... What I learned is that every character we dream about , is essentially an aspect of our own personas. We all have a 'Thurston Howell' inside of us , somewhere. These icons are often used by the mind to manifest and present our buried ideas and questions... The mind, being rich and powerful, is quite possible the best casting director a dream could have, in order to tell the story that it must tell, when we sleep.
Hey, What I'm saying here is a 50/50 crap-shoot and I could be way out in wrong -field
