Some Wild Stevie Ray VAUGHAN Syncs Today.

I just finished reading Cheryl Strayed's book Wild today after already seeing the movie of the book starring Reese Witherspoon twice,since it's release,so I decided to watch it a third time,now that I finished the book and understand Cheryl's story more.
 "A chronicle of one woman's 1,100-mile solo hike undertaken as a way to recover from a recent catastrophe."
Boot Hill ?

The dog named after Stevie Ray Vaughan in Wild.
I will be doing a much larger post on the movie soon,but I'm just going to focus on the part of the movie where a dog named  
Stevie Ray Vaughan comes into it for now.
When Cheryl asks the people in the car the name of the dog they tell her it's name is Stevie Ray Vaughan,because it was bought home the day Stevie Ray Vaughan died,which would have been August 27, 1990.
 "On August 27, 1990, Vaughan had just performed with Eric Clapton at Alpine Valley Music Theatre in East Troy, Wisconsin. 
All of the musicians boarded four helicopters bound for Chicago, which were waiting on a nearby golf course. 
According to a witness, there was haze and fog with patches of low clouds. 
Despite the conditions, the pilots were instructed to fly over a 1000-foot ski hill. 
Vaughan, along with three members of Eric Clapton's entourage 
(agent Bobby Brooks, bodyguard Nigel Browne, and assistant tour manager Colin Smythe), boarded the third of the four helicopters—a Bell 206B Jet Ranger—flying to Meigs Field
At about 12:50 am (CDT), the helicopter departed from an elevation of about 850 feet, veered to the left and crashed into the hill. 
All on board, including the pilot, Jeff Brown, were killed instantly."
Cheryl then asks about the photo of the little boy hanging from the rear view mirror only to be told he was eight when he was hit by a truck and killed.
Now the coincidence here was I was on the net buying  
the soundtrack to the movie Wild,as I liked a lot of the music I was hearing and knew there was more good songs to come.
But there where no Stevie Ray Vaughan tracks on the soundtrack,so I keyed up Stevie's discography and noticed his last album 
was "The Sky Is Crying".

Back to the Future: The Massive Speaker is Meant to be the Bomb that was Dropped on Hiroshima at 8:15

I noticed that "The Sky Is Crying" was released after Stevie had passed away and that it was released on November 5th,1991.
I've just been writing a few posts about Back to the Future,so Nov 5 was still fresh on my mind,see the post by clicking on the red link above.
 The first song on the album "The Sky Is Crying" is a song called 
"Boot Hill",which is rather synchy considering the movie Wild starts off with Cheryl losing a boot down the side of a hill,then throwing the other one after it in a fit of rage.
Boot Hill ?
There is also a Reese W
playing keyboards on "The Sky Is Crying"
I was also buying Hozier's album at the same time as I saw him play live on Easter Thursday at the Byron Bay Bluesfest,but for some reason they weren't selling his CD there.
Hozier on stage at the Bluesfest Easter Thursday.

Hozier is an Irish singer born on St.Patrick's Day (March 17th) and in the film Wild there is a scene where Cheryl is walking the streets on St.Patricks Day at night not knowing that her mother had passed way in the early hours of March 18.
Now here is where things start getting weirder,a man named Michael Vaughan died in a parachuting accident right next door to the Bluesfest site a week before Hozier would play there.
"Michael Vaughan was critically injured in the incident when his parachute became entangled with another, at Tyagarah on the far-north coast of New South Wales.
Mr Vaughan was taken to the Gold Coast University Hospital in a critical condition, but the 45-year-old died in hospital Saturday afternoon.
His skydiving partner, 29-year-old Briony Clarke, died at the scene."
Second skydiver dies after accident at Byron Bay on NSW north coast
Cheryl Strayed's mother was the same age as Michael Vaughan 
when she passed away,45 years old and Hozier was born the same year Stevie Ray Vaughan passed away,1990.

 Then I see this news story today -
'Ultimate guitar hero' 
Sadly, Vaughan died in 1990 at the height of his blossoming career in a helicopter crash. Armed with his signature Stratocaster, the Texas bluesman was an unstoppable force on six strings.
John Mayer called it the "honour of a lifetime" to induct Vaughan, whom he called "the ultimate guitar hero."
"Stevie used his guitar to lead him out of town," said Mayer, who later traded licks on Texas Flood with Gary Clark Jr. 
"He gave me hope because heroes give you hope. 
While Jimi Hendrix came down from outer space, Stevie came up from below the ground."
Now,in Australia where I live,Vaughan is not a common first name and I should know,as that is my brother's name,not that he was named after Stevie Ray though.
And on the subject of guitar heroes I have to say that mine is The Boss,who does have a track on the Wild soundtrack,
"Tougher Than the Rest".
 "Tougher Than the Rest" 
is being played in the scene above when Cheryl is approaching Kennedy Meadows.
Now apart from me sharing the same birth-date (September 23rd) with Bruce,I have just finished reading his biography and it is mentioned in the book that Bruce's father's sister was hit and killed by a truck when she was riding her tricycle as a five year old and this had a tremendous impact on his family and his growing up.
Maybe even in the songs he wrote ? 
So Bruce's Grandmother would have known what the lady in the car at the top of this post was going through by losing a child in similar circumstances.

Jeff Kripal at TEDxHouston.

"There are complexities and wonderment in life we simply cannot explain. 
When we look to science and religion, we can't always find the answers. 
Have you ever experienced deja-vu, coincidences, or dreams that may have seemed real? 
Have you ever wondered what exactly qualifies as human consciousness? 
Reality vs. Abstract ?"

"In Mutants and Mystics, Kripal offers a brilliantly insightful account of how comic book heroes have helped their creators and fans alike explore and express a wealth of paranormal experiences ignored by mainstream science. 
Delving deeply into the work of major figures in the field—
from Jack Kirby’s cosmic superhero sagas and Philip K. Dick’s futuristic head-trips to Alan Moore’s sex magic and Whitley Strieber’s communion with visitors—
Kripal shows how creators turned to science fiction to convey the reality of the inexplicable and the paranormal they experienced in their lives. 
Expanded consciousness found its language in the metaphors of sci-fi—incredible powers, unprecedented mutations, time-loops and vast intergalactic intelligences—and the deeper influences of mythology and religion that these in turn drew from; 
the wildly creative work that followed caught the imaginations of millions. 
Moving deftly from Cold War science and Fredric Wertham's anticomics crusade to gnostic revelation and alien abduction, Kripal spins out a hidden history of American culture, rich with mythical themes and shot through with an awareness that there are other realities far beyond our everyday understanding."
 Most scholars dismiss research into the paranormal as pseudoscience, a frivolous pursuit for the paranoid or gullible. 
Even historians of religion, whose work naturally attends to events beyond the realm of empirical science, have shown scant interest in the subject. 
But the history of psychical phenomena, Jeffrey J. Kripal contends, is an untapped source of insight into the sacred and by tracing that history through the last two centuries of Western thought we can see its potential centrality to the critical study of religion.
Kripal grounds his study in the work of four major figures in the history of paranormal research: 
psychical researcher Frederic Myers; writer and humorist Charles Fort; astronomer, computer scientist, and ufologist Jacques Vallee; and philosopher and sociologist Bertrand Méheust. Through incisive analyses of these thinkers, Kripal ushers the reader into a beguiling world somewhere between fact, fiction, and fraud. 
The cultural history of telepathy, teleportation, and UFOs; 
a ghostly love story; the occult dimensions of science fiction; 
cold war psychic espionage; 
galactic colonialism; and the intimate relationship between consciousness and culture all come together in  
Authors of the Impossible, a dazzling and profound look at how the paranormal bridges the sacred and the scientific.

DONnie PEYOTE Darko ? Did This Film Synchomystically Allude to the Germanwings Crash ?

'Don Peyote' is a low budget movie directed by and starring  
Dan Fogler and is the story of Warren 
(rabbit hole ?War on All men ?) Allman, 
an unemployed stoner who finally finds a purpose in life after an unpleasant encounter with a homeless man preaching the end is near. 
Fueled by vivid apocalyptic dreams, Warren becomes obsessed with 2012 doomsday theories and decides to make a documentary on the subject while his fiance is busy planning their wedding. 
The film also stars Anne Hathaway who played Catwoman in the movie 
"The Dark Knight Rises".
You might want to bear that in mind for later ? 
I started watching this film (Don Peyote) just before the Germanwings plane went down 
"On 24 March 2015, Airbus A320-211 with registration D-AIPX was operating Flight 9525 from Barcelona to Düsseldorf when it crashed in the south of France near Digne-les-Bains, killing all on board. 
The flight was carrying 144 passengers, two pilots, and four cabin crew.
The French prosecutor, the French and German aviation authorities, and a spokesperson for Germanwings have all said that the crash was intentionally caused by the co-pilot, 
27-year-old Andreas Lubitz.
and I noticed the name of one of the production companies was "Wingman" ?!
 The other production company was "Highland" and of course the Germanwings plane crashed in what some would consider highlands,or a mountainous region.
 And another thing I found synchy about the Germanwings event was that the first sub-chapter in the film is titled "The Descent".
The highlands crash-site of the Germanwings plane.
I'm starting to think I watched this film just at the right time to pick up on it's accidental (consciously anyway) synchromysticism. 
While I don't think Dan knew the event/events this film would sync to in the near future,if any,it does have some very coincidental clues throughout the movie linking it to the time-frame of the Germanwings crash. 
For instance,in this scene Warren is wearing a black t-shirt with a 13 on the front and tries to convince his girlfriend that he was using her lipstick to reenact a scene from "Cats". 
Black cat / Black Friday ? 
We have just had two Friday the 13th's in a row 
(March 13th & February 13th),
not only that but the only couple from Oz (Australia)  
on the plane (a mother and son) 
had the surname FRIDAY.
 "Victorian nurse Carol Friday and her son Greig died when the plane went down in the French Alps last week in what German authorities believe may have been a deliberate act on the part of the co-pilot."
 I noticed on the credits that the harem of girls in Warren's vision have the real names of Gal FRIDAY and BAMBI the mermaid.
As I said above the only two Australian victims on the Greenwings crash were a mother and son named Grieg and Carol FRIDAY.
Plus Bambi is a 1942 movie about a young deer growing up in the forest after his mother is killed by hunters.
Later in the movie Warren tries to buy a ticket on the CATS/ kill Mountain Railroad.
A stationary  train stuck in the mountains that won't take Warren home.

 He also discusses his current health issues with his girlfriend in the same scene.
Another thing I found intriguing is that Warren (Dan) is wearing a thumb ring on his left hand.
Thumb rings were worn by archers to protect the thumb from getting hit by the bowstring after release.
Also with the movie centering around the year 2012 and the end of the world I thought it was appropriate he was wearing it for the movie because in 2012 the galactic center is lined up with earth and this is usually depicted by an archer shooting an arrow into it.
But the ring was probably just something Dan likes wearing,rather than him giving a wink to shooting for galactic center. 
" Sagittarius is at the center of the Milky Way Galaxy, and the galaxy is at its densest point as it makes its way through Sagittarius." 
I also find it interesting that Wallace Shawn who plays the Psychotherapist of Warren Allman in the movie shares the same birthday in real life (November 12th) as Anne Hathaway,who plays "Agent of TRUTH" in the same movie,which makes them both Scorpios.
Scorpions ?

Anne Hathaway plays a black ops agent in the movie Don Peyote.
Here is a scene from Don Peyote where Warren passes a joint to a guy and they use the joint as a metaphor for the "joint" coming apart ( talking about our modern way of life) and they superimpose one of the twin towers exploding over the joint.
Warren (Dan) smokes lots of weed out of real apples,usually while texting,or talking on his Apple iPhone,or Apple computer.
Which seems to be hinting at forbidden knowledge being acquired through drugs.
  On the subject of fruit Don Peyote got 8% on Rotten Tomatoes 
and that is probably fair enough as well.
As a movie it stinks,but as a synchromystic vehicle it is worth a look.
"Don Peyote" is packed with recognizable names, including Anne Hathaway, Josh Duhamel, Topher Grace, Annabella Sciorra, Abel Ferrara, Dean Winters and Jay Baruchel, but the very loose dialogue and poorly imagined interactions 
(which are mostly covered with multiple cameras, in the manner of a wedding or a child's birthday party, rather than truly directed) 
prevent any of them from creating memorable moments. 
The best they can do is try, and in most cases fail, to avoid embarrassing themselves. 
The sound is poor, the editing choppy, the dialogue overly dependent on profanity 
(and not in that flavorful Mamet way, either) 
and the star consistently overacts. 
This is a bad stoner film, a bad romantic comedy, a bad character portrait, and just all-around bad. Avoid, avoid, avoid."  
"Why are you wearing that stupid man suit ?"
An Easter ayahuasca vision from the movie ? 
Or a Darko side of the Blood Moon just for the 2015 Easter weekend ?
Scene from the movie,"Donnie Darko".
March 24th is the 365th and last day of the year in many European implementations of the Julian calendar.
Germanwings Flight 9525 crashes in the French Alps in an apparent mass murder-suicide, killing all 150 people on board on March 24th,2015
Tarot Card #15
So you could say that when it comes to the Julian calendar March 24th was the end.
March 24
  Did anyone notice that the clock was on 4:20 when the doctor was examining Warren the stoner...and there is a picture of what could be a French mountain...just to keep the Germanwings theme going ? 
I think the clock though was deliberate as a wink to the 4/20 stoner thing.
But 4+20 does add up to the date the Germanwings plane crashed as well.

I also noticed a company named XLrator Media at the beginning of the trailer to Don Peyote. 
"The co-pilot of the doomed Germanwings flight 9525 repeatedly accelerated the plane as he used the automatic pilot to descend into the Alps, the French air accident investigation agency has said.
The new detail from the BEA agency is based on an initial reading of the plane’s black box data recorder, found blackened and buried at the crash site on Thursday."
 Germanwings co-pilot accelerated plane during descent
Dan Fogler was in one episode of "Black Box" -  
"A doorman collapses, so Dr. Bickman rushes him to the cube 
and performs an alternative procedure." 
It is rated 8.6 at IMDB at the moment. 
Germanwing s had 86 destinations and a slang term for killing somethihng is to 86 it.
A "black box" is also a flight recorder and the door being closed by the co-pilot while the pilot tried to break his way in with an axe is very Kubrickian.
A scene from Stanley Kubrick's "The Shining".
Mr Brickman ?
A one point in the movie "Don Peyote"Warren (rabbit hole ?) ALLMAN tries to drag the audience into his movie by noticing the audience noticing him,giving the audience a lecture about sitting out there eating popcorn.
Very much a TRUEMAN Show,or 2001:A Space Odyssey moment
There are also plenty of suicide gestures in the film,and the Germanwings crash involved a suicidal co-pilot,too.
So the irony here is that we have a movie about conspiracies turning into a movie that may or may not allude to a plane crash conspiracy that the filmmakers somehow had prior knowledge of,or stumbled across clues in their drug induced script writing and film making.
Then again you might just send yourself crazy trying to figure out if there really is anything in this movie linking the Germanwings crash to it,synchromystically,or otherwise.
If nothing else,it makes for a good blog-post. ;-) 
Scene from Don Peyote."It wasn't even loaded" the one eyed man tells Warren.
The guy above is Joe COLEMAN,and in real life shot his eye out with a firecracker.
Coleman's birthday is November 22nd,a day remembered for someone else being shot.


There is a scene where Warren drinks a cup of ayahuasca like he is drinking some pleasant tasting sort of coffee he is given.
Not that I have tasted it,but from every report I've heard it tastes like vomit and is hard to keep down once you drink it.
So,I don't think Dan did his homework on that one when it comes to this scene in the movie.
And I only watched the movie once (once is enough,believe me),
but I didn't see or hear anything about the drug peyote
Black swan,or lame duck ?
I guess after you view Don Peyote in relation to this post,you'll be asking yourself if this movie somehow predicted a black swan event,or whether it's just a lame duck ?-)
