Dream #4

Writer/Director: Mike Lazorwitz

Cast (in order of appearance):

  • Mike Lazorwitz (Lead Musician/Sleepy Man/Noisy Roommate)
  • Austin Eustice (Bandmate)


In this surreal musical piece, a sleepy man (Lazorwitz) dreams that he is performing Jethro Tull's epic, LP-length, 1972 anthem "Thick as a Brick" with the help of a protean bandmate who plays everything besides the flute. The performance goes on and on, much to the exhaustion of them both. Eventually, our sleepy man is awoken from this prog-rock reverie to find his noisy roommate (voice of Mike Lazorwitz) is playing the record, loudly, on the stereo. The roommate invites him to join his "boogie-down" when he's "done sleeping," but he rolls over and tries to go back to sleep.


  • The Noisy Roommate speaks from offscreen in a Muppet-esque voice Lazorwitz developed in his high school years as a caricature of physics teacher and forensics team coach Fr. Dan O'Brien, S.J.
  • "Thick as a Brick" runs 72 minutes, 6 seconds, taking up both sides of an LP or an entire CD. It contains approximately 1450 words, all of which can be found here (opens in new window).
