I Wish Morgan Freeman Could Talk Me to Sleep Every Night....

Thursday, March 17, 2011....


If you've been following my blog, you know I suffer from insomnia. I have a horrible case of it and am on a never-ending search for a cure.

There is one thing that naturally puts me to sleep and it is the sound of Morgan Freeman's voice.

I love the movie Shawshank Redemption for it's storyline and acting, but when I'm exhausted and can't sleep, I'll go into my living room and pop in my Shawshank dvd. I'll fast forward the movie and pass the courtroom scene where Tim Robbins is given his sentence of life in prison and start the movie right at the point where Morgan Freeman starts narrating Andy's life inside Shawshank.

It's not long before I'm lulled into a deep sleep, but only while the movie is playing. Once off, I wake up and start the process again. I've put the movie on repeat, but that doesn't always guarantee me a complete night's sleep because of the lights from the t.v. screen (and call me crazy, but I do enjoy sleeping with hubby in our very comfy bed). I'd love a guarantee and figure the only way is to have Morgan's voice piped into my bedroom soothing me to sleep.

If NASA can put a man on the moon, why can't someone invent the Morgan Freeman sleep sound machine? I can't imagine I'm the only human being that has watched his movies to help them sleep.*



*Note: Mr. Freeman, I watch your movies for the entertainment value and enjoy every minute of your performance. Using your movies to help me fall asleep is a last resort added benefit and not the main reason I watch your films.

Morgan Freeman is one of my favorite actors. He sure does have a soothing, captivating voice. I've had insomnia all my life. Got it from my mom I guess. So I know how you feel.

Have you tried watching 'Driving Miss Daisy'? Not only will you hear his voice but the movie itself will put you to sleep.

The man could narrate a phone book. He just has an awesome voice. He probably has it patented and insured, like Marilyn Monroe's boobs or JLO's ass. :)

Yeah, he's pretty amazing. One of the few bright spots of the crappy Oscars opening skit was Morgan telling Anne Hathaway and James Franco that Alec Baldwin likes him to narrate his dreams.

Matty - I bet you wish your mom left you a clock instead of insomnia...it's the worst.

JJ - I've never seen that movie, but will have to watch it. I thought that movie won some awards -- although Dan A's voice is the opposite of Morgan & could wake me up.

Brian - I'm guessing from the 'ugh' you're not a Morgan fan. I'll have to look for the new IMAX flick. He did a great job with March of the Penguins -- I wish he was the voice for the Polar Bear on I just saw on Animal Planet.

Veg Ass - Okay, your comment cracked me up.

BeckEye - I loved his little part in the Oscars and was hopeful the rest of the show would be fun. Unfortunately, I think that was the highlight of the show.

Sounds like you need to find some books on tape narrated by Morgan to listen to in bed.
