Magic, Gratitude and Grace

Two posts I read today about magic, gratitude and grace - 
Adios primavera  
 Step Into The Magic and Strange Things Happen
led me to a third post on another blog;
White Butterfly  
where I found these two You Tubes -
I'm just grateful that I don't have to do that dance.
Notice in the last You Tube he did a gratitude dance 
in my hometown of Brisbane?
I know exactly where that spot is, too.
Eagle St Fig Trees
I also found this painting called "Enveloped In Grace" -
Sunrise to sunset
Circle of life’s transition
Enveloped in Grace
Enveloped in grace???

Last Day Of Mowvember

Last day of Mowvember today, time to cut the grass now.
Cut petrol consumption literally by riding a mower next Mowvember.
Who got the longest growth out of their lawns before the mow date?
It's very dangerous to attempt this without a catcher:-)
Such a fun month Mowvember.
Dismember-Me Plush Zombie
But tomorrow brings on Dismember, at least Mowvember doesn't cost an arm and a leg.
Unless you are not very good at shaving or mowing;-) 
But there are a lot of dumb ways to die, I guess.
I've heard of taking a tumble, but this is just plain dumb!
Happy Dismember. 
I got it all wrong, it was Movember where you grow a Mo, not Mowvember where you let your grass grow.
Might be room for another charity then next year?-)

The Round Mountain Girls

I missed The Round Mountain Girls at the Byron Bay Bluesfest last year and I even missed them at this performance at the  
Brunswick Heads pub, which happens to be one of my favourite stops on the way to Byron Bay.
Sychronistic Sunday Surprizes
The stage area of the pub during daylight hours. Brunswick Heads, NSW, Oz.
The above You Tube is RMG's Bluesfest performance.
Rock the Gate Saturday October 13, 2012 Murwillumbah Showgrounds.
I'll try to catch them next year for sure.

Blue Pi Bullseye ... or Is It Just All Pooh?

Is Synchronicity a Sign That We Are on The Right Track?
Blue Man Group
To me actor Michael Caine represents Pi because he was born on March 14 (3/14=3.14 Pi) and voiced the blue car in the movie Cars 2 with the number plate 314 FMCM.
Blue Cars Too
Caine was also in Inception with Leo.
Interesting connections.
Thanks to Jim Sanders and Jake Kotze for their thought provoking You Tubes on the stories and connections in film and in life.

Jamie Foxx and the Sept 23 Syncs

ThunderSoul released Sept 23, 2011?!

 Anyone who's been following this blog will know Jamie Foxx has been hot on my "sync/6 degrees of separation radar" recently thanks to Jake 
The Sync Whole - Thin Red Lines  
and his Tom Cruise/Jack/Dec 21st movie syncs
You Don't Know Jack? 
and the MacGregors bringing Michael Mann into the picture with their old/new book
on the Miami Vice TV show 
The Making of Miami Vice
So, it all started with this movie for me, with Foxx, Cruise, and Mann all coming together to make Collateral
I have to laugh at that word "Dazzling" on the poster;-)
Then Mann and Foxx and Farrell with Miami Vice the movie.
Then Cruise and Farrell in PKD's story Minority Report.
I saw this link at Jamie's Twitter page this morning -
And I was thunderstruck.
This movie's release date was September 23rd, 2011.
September 23rd being my birth-date, plus the page was done in the colours of my favourite Rugby League team -  
The Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks
Jamie also got his big break in the movie Ray playing
Ray Charles Robinson AKA Ray Charles, who was born on September 23, 1930.
Interesting thing too about the Cronulla-Sutherland link is the name Sutherland and the fact That Kiefer Sutherland, who Jake talks about being born on December 21st, also starred in Dark City, which was filmed in Sydney (Fox studios, I think), where the Cronulla-Sutherland team are based. 
Alex Proyas the director/writer of Dark City is born on
September 23rd, too.
And director John Woo, who directed Tom Cruise in MI2 was born on September 23rd and that movie was filmed in Sydney, as well.
 And my middle name just happens to be Sydney ... but I was born and live in Brisbane.
 Oh, nearly forgot, Jamie Foxx starred in Rob Cohen's movie Stealth also filmed in Sydney at Fox studios.
Cohen also was the director of the movie Dragon.
"Dragon" Movie '93 - Brandon's Death - Precognition???
"Life Has A Mind Of It's Own"???

Collateral Sync?

I just posted Jamie Foxx in a trailer of  the movie Collateral in this post -
Life Begins At 40, December 21st 2012?
where he is forced to drive Tom Cruise's character around LA on a crime spree, then this morning I see this story about a lady going on a nine hour crime spree in the city of Perth in Western Australia.
"A young woman casually walks through the parking lot of an
IGA supermarket in Koondoola, in Perth's north, paying no attention to the taxi driver shadowing her.
According to police, she had just forced that same taxi driver at knifepoint to take her to the supermarket – after a string of
armed bank hold-ups and carjackings across Perth.
CCTV footage shows him suddenly throwing an arm around her neck from behind and dragging her to the ground in a struggle that lasts half a minute.
"I've got the bank robber!" the driver is heard yelling, according to witnesses.
With the help of two other men, the woman was held until the police arrived."
 And then there is the crane sync with Jake's Twitpic that took place yesterday as well.
Crane Sync with Jake Kotze?
"This upside down SA looks like 42 in the reflection of this washroom sink faucet at work"
"This upside down SA."???   
Crane from Down-under? 
SA - Sydney, Australia???
That Twitpic was taken while Jake was mulling over the  
Tom Cruise/Jack connections,
You Don't Know Jack?
and this post called
The Sync Whole - Thin Red Lines.
A crane goes down in SA (Sydney, Australia) yesterday.
Crane remains at site after fire and collapse 
"The company is the same one that was managing a New York construction site where a crane partially collapsed during Super-storm Sandy in October.  
 In late October, gale-force winds from Superstorm Sandy caused a construction crane to collapse atop what will become an upscale apartment high-rise.
The collapsed New York crane was operated by Pinnacle Industries. Lend Lease, the construction manager on the project, said the crane had been inspected days before the storm and was determined to be properly placed for hazardous weather."
Crane spews flames, collapses at Sydney construction site
 This is truly weird.
And in one more sync twist, my father worked all his life nearly as a cab driver and my youngest son works for an IGA supermarket in Brisbane.
An IGA supermarket is where the cab driver in Perth wrestled the women criminal to the ground.
One more thing, The Thin Red Line  was shot in Australia (Oz) by FOX pictures;-)
Notice also the thin red line working its way across the You Tube at the bottom of the screen as the trailer plays ... ironic isn't it?
Also, at the 24 second mark of that above trailer we see that the movie takes place in 1942.

Psilocybin Therapy

"A woman diagnosed with terminal cancer is given a dose of psilocybin to curb severe anxiety in the context of a Harbor-UCLA medical study. 
Following treatment, anxiety and barriers in the woman's personal relationships were significantly alleviated."
From the film The Medicine - Medical Research on Psychedelics.

 I found this interesting article about Psilocybin Therapy at the  
Reality Sandwich website
Psilocybin Therapy Documentary
I've also tagged this documentary called  
The Pharmacratic Inquisition on to this post, as I find the arguments in this film quite interesting to ponder. 
It goes for well over an hour, so you may want to watch it in parts, or make some time to watch it later.
"Thousands of years ago, in the pre monarchic era, sacred plants and other entheogenic substances where politically correct and highly respected for their ability to bring forth the divine, Yahweh, God, The Great Spirit, etc., by the many cultures who used them.
Often the entire tribe or community would partake in the entheogenic rites and rituals. 
These rites were often used in initiation into adulthood, for healing, to help guide the community in the decision process, and to bring the direct religious experience to anyone seeking it.
In the pre literate world, the knowledge of psychedelic sacraments, as well as fertility rites and astronomical knowledge surrounding the sun, stars, and zodiac, known as astrotheology, were anthropomorphized into a character or a deity; consequently, their stories and practices could easily be passed down for generations.
Weather changes over millenniums caused environmental changes that altered the available foods and plant sacraments available in the local vicinity. 
If a tribe lost its shamanic El-der (El – God), all of the tribe’s knowledge of their plant sacraments as well as astronomical knowledge would be lost. 
The Church’s inquisitions extracted this sacred knowledge from the local Shamans who were then exterminated…It is time to recognize the fact that this Pharmacratic Inquisition is still intact and destroy it."

Crane Sync with Jake Kotze?

A crane goes down in SA (Sydney, Australia)
 I just went to check the ABC News site and saw this story about a crane collapse, after finishing up my previous post where I wrote about Jake Kotze's "42 Crane sync in the sink".
The Sync Whole - Thin Red Lines
Jake had posted this comment with his Twitpic -
"This upside down SA looks like 42 in the reflection of this washroom sink faucet at work."
and saw this story about a crane -
Crane collapses after fire engulfs driver's cab
Updated 1 hour 42 minutes ago.
 And where did it take place
SA (Sydney, Australia) 
The city Dark City was filmed in.
Crane collapses after fire engulfs driver's cab
"Witnesses say a burning crane swayed violently over a central Sydney building site before its arm crashed on to the roof of a nearby building.
The crane's operator was forced to flee after the blaze broke out in a 1,000-litre diesel tank within the 65-metre-tall crane at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) building site in Ultimo just before 10am (AEDT).
 "This is a very major incident. 
The collapse of a tower crane is a most unusual event around the world.""
But not impossible, right?-)
WARNING: There is a lot of bad f#(%!ng language in the following You Tube.
You might want to turn the sound down first?

Life Begins At 40, December 21st 2012?

Begins December 21st, 2012
The guys over at The Sync Whole have an interesting post going about actors born on December 21st, Thin Red Lines, Jack, and movies coming out on December 21st 2012.
THIS IS 40 is released December 21st 2012 in The States, but not until Jan 17th in Oz.
Checkout Jake's previous post at The Sync Whole too, called  
You Don't Know Jack.
But I have a few interesting links of my own to throw in.

Megan Fox

My links involve a few foxes.
Megan Fox, Jamie Foxx and Matthew Fox to be specific.
Megan Fox is one of the main actresses in This Is 40.
You can see her in the second trailer of the film in the above
You Tube.
Jamie Foxx starred in Collateral with Tom Cruise.
Collateral was directed by Micheal Mann who also directed
Jamie Foxx in the movie version of Miami Vice
Mann was also the guy behind the hit TV show of the same name starring Don Johnson.
My friends over at Synchrosecrets have just re-released their book 
The Making Of Miami Vice on Kindle.
The MacGregor's also have a chapter in SYNC Book 2, which is out now.
 Soon to be released is the movie Django Unchained
starring both Jamie Foxx and Don Johnson and December 21st birthday boy Samuel L. JACKson and Leonardo DiCaprio, who is starring as Jay Gatsby in F. Scott Fitzgerald's  
(who died on December 21st, 1940, in Hollywood) story which is being filmed again by Baz Luhrmann.
Leo also plays Jack Dawson in Titanic, as if I had to tell anyone. 
Mann also produced Leo's The Aviator which was directed by  
Martin Scorsese of Taxi Driver fame. 
Let's not forget Cruise played Jack in the movie Legend , as well.
 Matthew Fox played Jack Shephard in the TV series Lost.
 He also played Red Dawson to Matthew McConaughey's  
Jack Lengyel in the movie We Are Marshall,
which was released December 22nd of that year.
Matthew Fox also plays Racer X in the Wachowski's  Speed Racer, which is interesting because that's the last letter of his name, Fox
In Jamie Foxx's case the the last two letters, or a double X.
Interesting that Samuel L. Jackson has just signed up for
XXX: The Return of Xander Cage.

Matthew Fox also plays Picasso in the new movie Alex Cross.
Plus he is also in Brad Pitt's new zombie movie World War Z, which I wrote about in this post -
World War (O)Z? 
and as Jake points out over at The Sync Whole, Brad plays 
Jackie Cogan in Killing Them Softly, which opens this weekend in The States.
" This upside down SA looks like 42 in the reflection of this washroom sink faucet at work."
Jake posted the above Twitpic
yesterday and I responded with this comment regarding Jake's 
(or is it Jack, now?) Twitpic of the 42 in the mirror with the word crane -
"This upside down SA looks like 42 in the reflection of this washroom sink faucet at work." 

 Check out Tom driving this crane -
 They are 40 foot containers that he is unloading.
 I joked in the same comment -
 If you asked how long in feet that container is?
Tom might say "This is 40" ;-)
Let's not forget that the other cop from the Miami Vice  movie was in Minority Report with Cruise, as well.
One more actor born on December 21st is Jackson Rathbone and he is starring in a new movie called

Live at the Foxes Den 

Live at the Foxes Den starring Jackson Rathbone and Jack Holmes.

 Jack Holmes is an actor, playwright, screenwriter, composer and pianist. He is the author of the solo play "RFK" in which he portrayed the late Robert F. Kennedy (Jack's brother).

This is an ad of Jack Kennedy from the same Megan Fox magazine above.
Also in that same magazine was an article on page 111 about  
Hugh Jackman who was 40 at the time.
111 just happens to be the number of my old work locker, too.
Jackson Rathbone's mother's name is Monroe, and what does  
Megan Fox have tattooed on her forearm?
Oh, this feature on page 140 of the same magazine reminded me of an actor named Jack Nance who was also born on December 21st, but is no longer with us.
He was the guy in Twin Peaks who finds the body of Laura Palmer wrapped in plastic.
Jack Nance was also in the 1988 re-make of The Blob, which is what Jake Kotze's blog is named after, as well.
The Blob (Jake's blog).
Jack Nance
Notice that You Tube goes for 42 seconds?
But I'm sure everything above is just all coincidence, right
One-eyed Jack's sign from the TV show Twin Peaks.
