Charlie and the Chocolate Factory...and the Monolith ?

I watched Charlie and the Chocolate Factory for the first time last night and loved how 
Tim Burton paid homage to Stanley Kubrick in the Television Room scene.
It reminded me of Joe Alexander's latest BTTF video about the monolith and touching the screen.
BACK TO THE FUTURE predicts 9/11 ?
 The above shot from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory also reminded me of a lot of Alex Grey paintings for some reason.
"Oversoul" by Alex Grey
In 1989, Alex Grey painted an amazing work called “Gaia”.
This scene above from the same movie also remind me 
of the latest video by Halfasheep -
Wormholes - Shapeshifting Cherub Masonic Portal Builders - Wayne Herschel vs Optus
Halfasheep ?
And check out the kid who travels through the TV and the shirt 
he is wearing with the skull on it.
The skull reminds me of the necklace I have hanging to the right of my computer that I bought from Alex Grey's shop years ago.

Skull Fetus

"The skull/fetus portrays linear time and indicates the temporality of life. 
Confronted by the constraints of time, every instant offers the capacity to realize our timeless existence."
Bulls-eye ? Squaring the circle ?
Bulls-eyes ?
I saw these scenes above from the movie  
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory of bulls-eyes which I thought was personally synchy, as I'm in the middle (bulls-eye ?-) of reading a great motivational book named 
"Bullseye", oddly enough.
And I have always liked the idea of a bulls-eye as a portal in an artistic representation of a portal for some reason.
217, 237, Darts and Bullseye Syncs
Portal / wormhole ?
I also noted a number of portal type scenes throughout this version of Dahl's classic story of the chocolate factory.
Watch it for yourself and see what I mean.
Even the original scene of the TV room from  
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory is worth a look.
Roald Dahl sure wrote some esoteric children's stories and these movie versions seem to be no exception.
And on the subject of Dahl, check out  my post about the partner of his granddaughter Phoebe who I wrote a few weeks back -
My Ruby Rose and the Giant Peach Synch
Ruby Rose and her partner Phoebe Dahl.
Christopher Lee as Wilbur Wonka.
I also thought it was weird to see Christopher Lee 
(who just passed away weeks ago)
playing Wilbur Wonka to Johnny Depp's Willy Wonka in 
 Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
And step this way to read my post about a mad dentist who pissed the world off by shooting a lion - 
What is it with Dentists and Capturing / Killing Exotic Species ?
What an arsehole that dentist was thinking a poor lion would make a great bullseye.

The Clockwork Orange Effect ?

I was sorting through my large CD collection recently just after moving house and came across the above 
Phil Collins CD Serious Hits Live.
I bought it years ago because it contained the song I picked out with my wife to have as our wedding waltz.
Song #13 on the album ironically enough looking back now.
I used to really love this song once,but now when I hear it come on the radio it makes me want to race over a switch the radio off,or on to another station and if I can't do that I start becoming mildly sick and irritated,obviously because it dredges up bad memories...
or rather memories that were once good and I was fond of,but now leaves me feeling hollow and angry.
Love on the Rocks...A Fool's Journey ?
This phenomena reminded me of a movie I snuck into the cinema to see when I was about 17 years old with my older brother's birth certificate,as you had to be at least 18 to get in.
That movie was A Clockwork Orange -
 "In future Britain, charismatic delinquent Alex DeLarge is jailed and volunteers for an experimental aversion therapy developed by the government in an effort to solve society's crime problem - but not all goes according to plan."
I hated A Clockwork Orange when I first saw it and came out of the cinema feeling repulsed and angry,because Kubrick wrecked a song that was a mild favourite of mine 
- Singing in the Rain
In the movie there is a disturbing rape scene where the main character,Alex,beats up the husband of a lady he rapes in front of him to the song Singing in the Rain.
I could never to this day hear the song Singing in the Rain without recalling that ugly scene from A Clockwork Orange .
Which was what Kubrick was aiming to do by using this famous much loved happy song,in my opinion,because the film is all about making the main character sick to the stomach when he hears his once favourite music,or even thinks about doing a violent act to others.
This is all because he is strapped into a chair and forced to watch violent scenes while his favourite music is played to the film while doctors pump drugs into him that makes him violently sick,so in future when Alex hears his once favourite music,or thinks about doing a violent act he immediately becomes ill.
 So Kubrick basically pulled the same trick on anybody in the audience who associated the song Singing in the Rain to being happy and care free.
Now when you heard it you would be hard pressed not thinking about that scene 
from A Clockwork Orange.
So it is with me when I hear A Goovy Kind of Love being played now,it just makes me feel ill.
Needless to say this CD will not be staying in my CD collection any longer.
