Synchromysticism

Repo Man/127 Sync



My XXXX (pronounced four-x) t-shirt is the local beer brand, not porn BTW.

The other day when searching for some music to play I halfheartedly asked the universe for a sync and blindly ran my hand over my CD collection and pulled out the soundtrack to Repo Man.

Being out of work with my finances heading for ground floor I thought this wasn't the choice I wanted to see in my hand.
I love a lot of the songs on this CD, but I wasn't in the mood to focus on a Repo Man, so after wondering why I would get this CD as my answer I put it back and chose another CD.

A day or two later I go over to The Secret Sun and see this post featuring the above clip about synchronicity from the film Repo Man
AstroGnostic: The Ultimate Star Trek Fans
I have only just read this book a few weeks ago, too.
Iggy Pop played Bluesfest this year, but I didn't see him play, as I bought tickets for Rodriguez, which makes the following quote from the movie seem a bit of a sync -
Bud : 
"Goddamn-dipshit-Rodriguez-gypsy-dildo-punks. I'll get your ass"
Miller:
"A lot o' people don't realize what's really going on. 

They view life as a bunch o' unconnected incidents 'n things. 
They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice o' coincidence that lays on top o' everything. Give you an example; show you what I mean: 
suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. 
Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. 
No point in lookin' for one, either. 
It's all part of a cosmic unconsciousness."
 And in regard to Star Trek that Chris Knowles referred to in his post, the new Star Trek movie starring Chris Pine is out,so maybe this quote as well - [Regarding tree-shaped air fresheners]  
"Find one in every car. You'll see."
Plus, I just won two free passes to the movie 

My free passes to The Place Beyond the Pines.

The place beyond the pines?

Did they mention brews in that last song?-)

Oddly, the above song is called Institutionalized by  
Suicidal Tendencies
and as I mentioned in my comment at The Secret Sun post, how appropriate to a post about the "Heaven's Gate" cult? 

127 on the numberplate?

Kangaroo vs Emu. The Coat of Arms of Oz?



"ARMED With a DREAM " / 42 Sync  
I couldn't help noticing that the number-plate on the mysterious car in Repo Man has the numbers 127 in that order on it.
Which reminds me of James Franco's movie 127 Hours.

Kangaroo vs Emu. The Coat of Arms of Oz?
Apparently James likes Gosling's acting in  
The Place Beyond the Pines -
Burning for Gosling
"I loved the whole film and was engaged every moment of the way. 
But what I want to talk about is the first section, the Gosling section; 
I want to make love to this section."

Did someone say plate o'shrimp?-)
