Radio 8-Ball

8-Ball Keyring and Yin/Yang
golf marker (I don't play golf BTW).
Well, The SYNC Book has been like reading The Book of Revelation to me ... but I mean in a good way ... not an "end of the world" kind of way.
One author, Andras Jones, who has a chapter in it called Radio8Ball, named the chapter after his radio show and web-site Radio8-Ball.
The radio show aired on KAOS 89.3 in Olympia, Washington State and at the moment is taking a long break, but you can hear podcasts of the show at his web-site,
He is a movie actor who has had roles in
A Nightmare on Elm Street 4 and The Attic Expeditions.
He was/is(?) also in a band called The Previous.
He also does Radio 8-Ball stage shows ... one of which you can see here starring Seth Green 
(no relation to The SYNC Book editor Alan Abbadessa Green),
Alan is going to be doing a similar show in New York on the 31st of this month involving 9 SYNC Book authors,
I would love to see that show.
My cat Sylvester that led
to my biggest song sync.
I love the concept of a radio oracle ... although I don't know if the universe, or whatever the force producing song syncs, will give out answers every-time you ask for one. 
But it doesn't hurt to try.
I had my biggest song sync when I was burying my cat Sylvester (across the road from a Buddhist Temple, of all places), who I wrote about here,
My Cat Sylvester ( R.I P.) and Memories (CATS) of the Future and the Past?
Gabriel (Peter)
and here,
Sylvester and My Life with Feathers 
I also own an 8-Ball key-ring, which I got for t-shirts sold with my custOMER designs on them, for this place in Sydney.
The "God doesn't play dice" design  at the bottom of my sidebar was made at REMO, and I took the design over to Zazzle and put it on a cup, but they wouldn't let me sell it because of Albert's photo, saying it might infringe copyright.
So, I just put it out there on the net and let anyone copy it if they want to ... go for it ... take it to Zazzle, Cafe Press, whatever and make your own cup, t-shirt, mouse pad, whatever.
They'll let you make one for yourself, they just won't let you sell them to others for profit.
Anyway, go over to Radio 8-Ball and check it out for yourself. 
This is what it says on the homepage about the oracle;
"Radio8Ball: The Pop Oracle is a musical divination format where questions are answered by picking songs at random and interpreting the randomly chosen song as the answer to the question, like picking musical tarot cards.
Give us a shake!

1. Click on "RADIO" and type your question in the box provided.
2. Each song corresponds with a tarot card.
3. Click on the song title to reveal information about the card and the song.

 Listen well synchronicity surfer."

Who knows? 
It might unlock some key answers for you.
Maybe that's why my 8-ball pictured below is called a key-ring?-)

Update: Jan 15th, 2012. 
 I have just finished reading Peg Carter's chapter in
THE SYNC BOOK and thought I would check out her site, Synchromysticism Forum, and I see this message,
"In total there are 88 users online :: 4 registered, 0 hidden and 84 guests  

(based on users active over the past 30 minutes)
Most users ever online was 289 on Wed Feb 16, 2011 10:45 am
It is currently Sun Jan 15, 2012 1:18 am"
That's 88 users. 
What are the odds?


  1. Don't know if you follow me on twitter, but since I found out I was gonna be asking the oracle a question on the show..... I found a few 8-Ball syncs....!/Synchronize23/media/slideshow?!/Synchronize23/media/slideshow?

    Maybe the Oracle is a "She"?

  2. Thanks for the links Chris.
    I don't have a twitter or facebook account.I'm not a real fan of either,but I will check out your links.
    I hope they record that 8-Ball show so I can view it later somewhere.Sounds like it will be a great show.Too bad I'm on the other side of the planet.

  4. What a web your synchros weave, always interesting. Off to try the 8 Ball oracle. 8 is a lucky number for the Chinese.
