Australia is Fake?!

I listened to this podcast yesterday from the
'Oh No, Ross and Carrie!' podcast site, which I found to be personally and collectively very synchromystic.
The podcast I listened to was the latest episode uploaded on 11/9 as Americans write the date, or 9/11 as we fake Australians write the date.
That night I was at a screening in Brisbane, Australia of
'2001: A Space Odyssey' with a Q&A with the actors -
9/11 Screening of 2001: A Space Odyssey?
Oddly enough, the MC of the Q&A made a joke to the two actors that some people think that Australia doesn't exist and that we "Australians" are all paid actors taking part in a conspiracy.
The MC who made the Australia is not real joke at the screening of '2001'
Keir Dullea and Gary Lockwood doing Q&A
This podcast is a recording of Carrie Poppy's talk at the
Australian Skeptics Convention on October 13th (10/13 as Americans write the date).
October 13th happens to be the birth-date of 'X-Files' creator
Chris Carter, also.
The name of his production company, Ten Thirteen Productions, comes from Carter's birth-date, 10/13/1956.
On The X-Files (1993), Mulder's birthday was also 10/13.
Plus, Ross and Carrie share the winners of the owl art contest and announce some upcoming live shows!
Ross and Carrie and Carrie's Australian Talk: Hypocrisy Edition
The last time I had listened to a Ross and Carrie podcast was the one I wrote about in this post -
Ki ... kinda Looks Like Something Other Than an Owl?
So it was kind of synchy that Ross and Carrie were announcing the winners of the owl art competition in their latest
"fake Australia" podcast.
In Australia the 11th of November is known as Remembrance Day (AKA Poppy Day).
The voice of HAL died on Poppy Day, or 11/11
Hmm ... born on Poppy Day?
Once Upon a Time in Hollywood?
I think Carrie Poppy mentions Leo in her talk, too;-)
But the syncs are just getting started here, as far as Ross and Carrie's show and our adventures are concerned.


Charles ... Bronson and the Ironies of Acting?

Tom Hardy as Charles Bronson
Tom Hardy is one of my favourite actors and I wrote about discovering the movie 'Bronson' after a puzzling dream I had years ago that lead me to watch the Tom Hardy movie -
"Bronson is a 2008 British biographical crime drama film co-written and directed by Nicolas Winding Refn and starring
Tom Hardy as Michael Peterson, known from 1987 as
Charles Bronson.
The film follows the life of this notorious prisoner, known for violent attacks against other prisoners, guards, and governors in prison; protests, armed robbery, and art.
He was renamed Charles Bronson by his fight promoter, for his bare-knuckle fighting years.
Born into a respectable middle-class family, Peterson became known as one of the United Kingdom's most dangerous prisoners.
Because of his violence, Bronson was repeatedly put into isolation or solitary confinement, which likely contributed to his emotional problems."
I guess Prince Charles meeting Tom Hardy is as close as we will get to Charles meeting Charles:-)
#1, #6, or a free man?-)

Ki ... kinda Looks Like Something Other Than an Owl?

The owl ain't what it seems?
"Thousands of keen bird-watchers flock to Serbia’s northern town of Kikinda every winter to see one of the world’s largest roosting populations of long-eared owls.
But the small town on Serbia’s border with Romania is now trending on social media for a different reason: a protest over a statue aiming to brand it as the city of owls which many say resembles a phallus rather than an owl.
The protesters say the terracotta statue’s elongated shape and minimalist features were obscene and demanded its removal."
Ki ... kinda kinky looking, not to mention spooky looking, too.
Ross and Carrie Meet The Owl Guy: The Mike Clelland Interview
What's the message with this owl?-)
Major Briggs looks kinda like a dick, too, come to think of it;-)
Kikinda owl middle finger puppets might send a message?-)
I think this statue will be a big tourist attraction for the town of Kikinda, because I'd never heard of the town or its owls before reading the news story about the "owl" statue.
The souvenir market possibilities are endless with a statue like that, but Kikindians would probably tell me to go shove my souvenir ideas where the sun don't shine.
I'm not even going to go into the anal probe product possibilities this statue could inspire;-)
My photo of the powerful owl statue in Canberra with the moon in the sky
Are the Powerful Owls What They Seem?
At least the statue of the Powerful Owl in Australia's capital city Canberra doesn't look as phallic as Kikinda's.
But with Canberra being the Washington D.C. of Australia's political life, we certainly don't need any more pricks in that town;-)
