Flavor and the Wall

Los Angeles: Flava Flav was sitting in a Mercedes with the top down on a Santa Monica street. I was there to meet him for an interview and get him to tell me a dream. (Iím into dreams.) You could smell Flavís splif a block and half away. A log sized, log flume of a joint. Flav is filming in Canada and was home for a couple days. From his car, he was staring at a giant mural on the side of a building. He never took his eyes from it:

Mr. Flavor, do you remember your dreams?
Flav: I like this wall, yo. I come here when I can. I like to construct it in my head. You gotta augment shit, you know?

Can you tell me the real reason you wear clocks?
Damn G, hit me with that. The real reason ainít real haha. The real reason is stupid. But it stuck. (Lifts up his sleeve and flashes a diamond wristwatch.) Can you say sponsors?

He laughed a spitting laugh from deep in his throat, then he told me his dream.

When he finished, I got out the car, and shut the door gingerly. The engine had been running the whole time. I thanked him and he was away. He took a right onto Santa Monica Blvd, looked back, and yelled, ďAugment, yo! Flava-FLAAAV!!Ē

Trent, I had a dream an army of ants was covering a rocket. The ants were attracted to something I don't know what. I found a place where there were no ants on the rocket and managed to make my way inside. Once I got inside the rocket it was old fashioned. There was a whale who lived there who had a great white shark stuffed on the wall.

What does this mean? Any clue?

so was this a dream you had or a real interview? flava never did anything talented in his whole life-no wonder he had to try hard and talk about wall art. He wishes he could have painted that instead of having his claim to fame be "Yeaa boouuyyy" and dating a max headroom looking robot from red sonja.

It was a real interview. Very real.

Army ants covering a rocket. Ants are one of the most powerful forces in all of nature, when in large numbers. They ravage everything in their path. They're covering a rocket, something that takes off. Have you been feeling overwhelmed by numbers? Is something taking off / about to take off? You found a way into the rocket, a way through the army ants. You found a way past this all powerful force of nature. Then inside, it was old fashioned. Odd for the inside of a rocket, a contradiction. Like the whale with the shark on the wall. A whale is a big gentle thing, right? A shark is a killer. But there the shark is, stuffed on the wall, conquered, and posing no threat.

This is all subject to your individual associations to ants, and rockets, and whales and stuffed sharks.

I'd say something is about to slip through and lift off. Be ready. Don't under estimate. Wear a condom.

Check out my friend Chris Romano's short video "6 months to live, episode #2"... in which we got to work with Flava Flav pre-comeback. It is fking hillarious
