I remember ‘The Shepherd’s Dog’ record being not necessarily a political record, but a reaction to socio-political situations in America.

I was offered a lot of reality shows in the past. I continue to be offered things like ‘The Surreal Life.’ I did one in 2002, right after the attacks on the World Train Center. It was called ‘Celebrity Bootcamp.’ It sounded exciting and cool when they presented it. When you get down to it, it was corny and cheesy.
David Faustino
I get star-struck anytime I meet performers that I grew up watching and appreciating.

My whole childhood, those were on my wall, and cut to 20 years later, being asked to be the face of one of Calvin Klein’s new fragrances is kind of surreal.

My first book is really comparable to what I do now, where it’s pretty surreal and strange at moments, but that being my first book – I wrote that when I was 22; it came out when I was 24 – and it was just really overwritten. I just didn’t trust myself as a writer to say something once.
Joe Meno

I know I have this level of celebrity, of fame, international, national, whatever you want to call it, but it’s a pretty surreal thing to think sometimes that you’re in the middle of another famous person’s life and you think to yourself, ‘How the hell did I get famous? What is this some weird club that we’re in?’

Craig David
It’s been a surreal journey for me since ‘Masaan.’ The way the industry has accepted me and motivated me has been amazing.

Seeing my book on a billboard in New York was a bucket-

Everything is always a little surreal.
Paula Abdul
It was surreal to step out of my own existence and see how most American children experience things.

It’s surreal to think that I own this beautiful island. It doesn’t feel like anyone can own Lanai. What it feels like to me is this really cool 21st-century engineering project, where I get to work with the people of Lanai to create a prosperous and sustainable Eden in the Pacific.
Larry Ellison
It’s really strange being in, like, Addison,Texas, and having people come up to me at a Nordstrom’s or a gas station. It’s really, really surreal.

Even in something surreal like ‘Father Ted,’ everything has to logically follow, everything has to lead one to another. The moment the logic of a situation doesn’t work then you might as well not bother because people have signed out.
Josh Widdicombe
I don’t think American family sitcoms are mean. I guess I really love ‘Arrested Development.’ I guess they are quite mean in that, but that is also a very silly, surreal, absurd show as well, and it has got a heart as well.
Simon Bird
As someone who watched ‘The Vampire Diaries’ when I was 10 or 11, getting to be Miss Mystic Falls was very surreal for me.

Sarah Gadon
I don’t really want to make a stylized film or anything too surreal.

Dan Smith
When you win a Premier League title it still feels a bit surreal after a couple of weeks.

When I see Bruce Banner becoming the Hulk, it’s only a picture. My imagination has to do some of the work there, to impute feeling and everything. We’re talking about something that’s so surreal, it’s just not possible within the world as we know it. So that requires a form that is not so literal.

Right now I’m in ‘Twilight’ and I go around to signings and there are people screaming and crying, and it’s so surreal.

Nikki Reed
I’m a confident guy. But it’s surreal to hear my name called in the same breath as Randy Moss, my favorite receiver. That’s the cool thing about having some success.

Jai Courtney
I'm used to seeing it, but it's weird having an Academy

I’m used to seeing it, but it’s weird having an Academy Award. You usually only see one of them on the TV show when they give them out, so it’s kind of surreal to have one in your house.
Steven Wright
If you have a surreal life like I do, you’ve got to have fun along the way.
Victoria Beckham
Surreal fiction is a sophisticated art form. Events happen divorced from conventional logic, as events in a dream may happen. But unlike dreams, everything in the story contributes to an overall coherent point, impression or emotion.
Nancy Kress
Lewis Carroll, you see, wasn’t really interested in telling an exciting story. Well, he wasn’t interested in things like cause and effect or a linear narrative. It’s surreal, it’s absurd, it’s wordplay, it’s satirical, it’s analyzing itself, it’s funny, it’s an enormous challenge.
James Bobin
As he grew older, his material was just as relevant and just as exciting and the band’s just as killer… It seems surreal that there’s no more Tom Petty, in person.
Adam Granduciel
I can’t do jokes. I’ve always come from left field and tried to subvert conventional comedy. I started as a rebellion against that – albeit a very soft and surreal rebellion. It’s escapist.
Julian Barratt
The red carpet is kind of a surreal experience. There’s nothing normal about it, so for me the most important thing is to maintain some normality right until the point you get out of the car.
Samantha Barks
A lot of the surreal writing that I love is really dreamlike. Like Murakami. He uses the real world, and it’s pretty recognizable, but its populated by these strange visitors, or it has these underground spaces. I was always really compelled by that.
Alexandra Kleeman
Being the first-ever three-time ROH world champion is pretty surreal.
Adam Cole

Edgar Wright
I’ve gotten to travel all over the world and meet all kinds of people and do all kinds of great things, so it’s, like, surreal. It just lets you know how time flies, especially when you’re having fun. It seems like time keeps going by faster as I get older.
Mekhi Phifer
I write a kind of surreal fantasy, but they can’t put ‘surreal fantasy’ on a paperback.

‘Pierrot le Fou’ is something I keep coming back to. It’s so surreal but still really engaging – it proves narratives within narratives are a landscape that can be pursued well.

Javier Bardem
It’s all so surreal, and I’m living my dream. And you know, principal or not, I’m getting to dance all the roles that I’ve dreamed of doing.
Misty Copeland

Storm Reid
When we saw our plane on TV as breaking news, it was the most surreal experience. A lot of the women were crying. There was a gentleman who was writing in his journal and crying. Seeing that isn’t easy.
Taryn Manning
As anthropomorphic and surreal people have said my early writing was, to me it was really stock and almost banal in the sense that it was just description, the poetry of comparing: ‘Your feet are like A, and your eyes like B.’

It was pretty surreal because The Allman Brothers’ ‘Eat A Peach’ and ‘Live At The Fillmore East’, and the Eric Clapton ‘Layla’ record was the music I grew up hearing all the time.
Derek Trucks

Cameron Monaghan
In the first place, it's surreal to watch filming, to s

In the first place, it’s surreal to watch filming, to see the little ideas you had in your head and now Taylor Kitsch is doing it, or Salma Hayek. And then to see it loud and bright onscreen is a trip.
Don Winslow
Playing Slams definitely gives you a surreal view of what can happen, and what you can be.

Jon Crosby
I post on Twitter regularly, and when I checked my followers, I saw that my own characters were following me. They sounded eerily like my characters would actually sound. It was a very surreal thing to see come to life digitally!
Neal Shusterman
My life’s been surreal from start to finish.
Lee Pearson
We are both drawn to surreal situations so the writing was a joy.
Dylan Moran
Every day working for Rachel Zoe, Inc. is surreal for me. I have the amazing opportunity to be around beautiful clothes and smart and talented people. Whats not to love!?

Dana Davis
We’re always aiming for storytelling that feels a bit surreal.
Stephen Hillenburg
If there’s one thing that television doesn’t really do, and has never really done, is to tell a surreal story.

People tell me I’m their idol and a huge inspiration – that’s really surreal.

Graham Moore
Before my first child was born, I had nothing going on professionally really, and it’s been a very blessed period of creativity for me since he arrived. It’s very surreal. It’s almost as if the babies are out there pulling strings somewhere, deciding what kind of life they want to be born into.
Seth Gabel
I think meeting someone like, meeting Sam Shepard, that was someone who was kind of important for me, because I’d read so much of his work and watched him as an actor since I was a kid, then being on set doing a scene with him and thinking, ‘This is really surreal.’
Richard Madden
I like the absurd and the surreal: the Coen brothers, Bunuel, Kubrick.

I’ve always wanted to be on an original cast recording. I grew up listening to them, and now to know that my voice is heard on three or four of them is just surreal. I never thought I would be that person.
Laura Osnes
For me, to just have my own shoe is unbelievable. As a kid, you see Jordans and wonder what that feels like to have your own shoe, and the fact that I have one is really surreal.
Calvin Johnson
It’s surreal. Here I was, a bhangra champion who had performed at an Indian festival in the U.K. and Germany, a television theatre actor who barely made Rs 1,000 a day working like a donkey all year round.
Binnu Dhillon
A lot of TV can be linear and cinematic and formulaic. What’s to say that people can’t be creative and surreal – and push boundaries? You can look at a piece of art and not necessarily know what it means or what the artist intended by it. It’s the effect it has on you.
Tuppence Middleton
It’s surreal to be hanging out on Ozzy’s patio with him talking politics. It’s so funny when people doubt that he’s with it because he’s a really sharp, smart guy.
Jim Norton
It was pretty surreal to be auditioning as a kid, and I

It was pretty surreal to be auditioning as a kid, and I’d get close to these actors that I really respected. I remember River Phoenix in particular. I met him at an audition hall or something.
Stephen Dorff
Obviously, everyone’s journey is different, and we all have different ambitions and beliefs as kids as to whether we’re actually going to be able to play in a World Cup and whether it can be a dream that can come true. For me and for my family, it’s very surreal.
Millie Bright
To be sitting on a movie set in Brussels and watching Adam Driver and Marion Cotillard singing something you wrote – it’s surreal, way beyond what we expected.
Ron Mael
It is a boyhood dream to play for Manchester United. To come here is a bit surreal. You see the number of fans out there and how far some of them have travelled to see. It is going to take a bit of getting used to.
Daniel James
I had done a couple of auditions for ‘Amistad’ and didn’t feel it was going to go any further – and then the call came about heading to Los Angeles to work with Steven Spielberg. It was surreal: exciting, challenging, overwhelming.
Chiwetel Ejiofor
I remember the screen test for ‘Gossip Girl’ was on the Warner Bros. lot in Burbank. I was about 17 or 18 years old at the time. I remember driving onto the lot and going, ‘Oh my God. This is surreal.’
Lily Collins
What people consider my worst interviews were kind of the best, as well, in a way, because they were so surreal, like J Mascis.
Lisa Kennedy Montgomery
I look around and see guys that I’ve been on the road and traveled the world with in a WWE locker room, and we still think it’s surreal. At least once a week, one of us will look at the other and just say, ‘Can you believe we’re really all here?’
Adam Cole
My fiance and I had a few problems working through some of the things that he saw me say and do on the ‘Surreal Life.’ Considering the company that I was in, Ron Jeremy and Trishelle from ‘The Real World,’ I think I was pretty tame.
