Trivia from the making of the movie Poltergeist -  
* Drew Barrymore auditioned for the role of Carol Anne. It was that audition that gained her the role as Gertie in E.T.: The Extra Terrestrial.  
* "Stephen King was asked to write the screenplay, but artistic differences got in the way."
 *"In the pool scene, the skeletons that emerge from the muddy water are real. JoBeth Williams was unaware of this until the scene had already been filmed."
The Uninvited (1944)
"Towards the end of the film, Diane Freeling says, "Mmmm... smell that mimosa." 
That line was borrowed from The Uninvited (1944).
 That film stars Alan Napier  
(the butler from the TV show "Batman") 
as Dr. Scott.  
Great Scott!!! 
* "During the filming of the scene in which Robbie was being strangled by the clown, the young boy was really unable to breathe. 
Spielberg and Hooper thought that the boy was improvising when he cried that he could not breathe. 
His face became cyanotic and Spielberg rushed over to remove him from the clown's clutches." "Dominique Dunn, the actress who portrayed the teenage daughter, was strangled by her boyfriend the same year that Poltergeist was released, 1982." 
"Ironically, Dominique Dunn and her on-screen sister,
Heather O'Rourke are buried in the same cemetery." 
Dominique Dunne
(November 23, 1959November 4, 1982
The American Film Institute voted the quote
"They're here" number 69 out of 100
Some interesting synchronicites came out of this recording, too.
Joe Alexander was mentioned in this podcast and the film that is featured in the beginning of Poltergeist (1982) is A Guy Named Joe (1943), which was remade by Spielberg in 1989 as Always (Record?-).

A helicopter crashes into a pub in Glasgow

After I listened to the podcast, a helicopter crashed through the roof of a pub in Glasgow at 22:25 Friday night.
The address of the pub is
167-169 Stockwell St Glasgow.
Liber67 and 69 in the one address?
The band that was playing at the time was named "Esperanza" (hope) and they play a song called
"Some Days You're Up..." .

My friend Trish MacGregor over at also has a book titled "Esperanza" as well.
The Clutha Bar has one big tree in the beer garden, too, which syncs with the tree talk in the podcast.

An EC135 T2 helicopter crashed into the pub where the group Esperanza were playing and on their album 'Permanent Ska' song #9 is titled T3 and runs for 2:37 minutes.
But have a listen to the lyrics.
"There is no escape from the 2 ton terror"
The EC135 T2 helicopter weighed between 2and 3 tons.
9.T3 02:37 .

The song T3 is for sale on the band's site for 0.69 Pounds as well.
T3 from Permanent Ska by Esperanza
Oddly enough, St Andrew's Cathedral next door to the pub, built in 1816, is seen in a new light since its restoration, completed in April 2011.
Esperanza's CD with the T3 song on it was released on the 9th April,2011,the same day as the Cathedral was re-opened.
999 is the emergency number for Scotland while on the subject of 9s and 6s.

Irons in the fire are mentioned
in the PC.
Jeremy Irons?
Jeremy Irons voices Scar in The Lion King and the band Esperanza who were playing in the Scottish pub was a Ska band.

"Esperanza is a nine-piece ska collective from Glasgow famed for live shows where their infectious rhythm has the crowd involuntarily jumping in time." 
Record label ; Dead Rude Records. Release date: 9th April 2011 (that's 4/9/11).  

Navigate your very own Flying Jumbo
" Imagine flying on one of the world's favourite elephants! On the Flying Jumbos you get the chance to take the controls - high or low you decide. The centre piece to this beautiful hand-painted attraction is the mother of all elephants, she’s 30 metres high and is surrounded by her gorgeous 14 baby elephants! "
Flying Scottish elephants? 
This place even has live bats (in the belfry?) 
Strathclyde Country Park, Hamilton Rd, Alona Hotel, Motherwell, Scotland.
+44 1698 333777 and check out the last 3 digits of the phone number (777?)

This theme park in Scotland is in "Motherwell" and in the podcast Alan mentions at the 26 minute mark about the universe being like "The Great Mother" - a Mother Well?
With the talk of bats in the belfry in the podcast it made me think of the bat scene out of The Big Chill -
Harold: [Harold, Sam, and Nick are trying to chase a bat out of the attic] 
I'll open the window, maybe it'll split. 
[He opens the window; two more bats fly in] 
Nick: Good, now we've got a fair fight. 
And then the talk about bats, dogs and wolves reminded me that the band Three Dog Night opened and closed the movie with their song
Joy to the World.
"The official commentary included in the CD set Celebrate: The Three Dog Night Story, 1964–1975 states that vocalist Danny Hutton's then-girlfriend June Fairchild suggested the name after reading a magazine article about indigenous Australians, in which it was explained that on cold nights they would customarily sleep in a hole in the ground whilst embracing a dingo, a native species of wild dog. On colder nights they would sleep with two dogs and if the night were freezing, it was a "three dog night" ".
Paul Walker
(September 12, 1973 – November 30, 2013)
Then today I see Paul Walker got killed in a car accident as a passenger and that he starred in the above movie called Eight Below pictured surrounded by 8 dogs.
Then I see the latest headlines about the Scottish copper crash -
"Eight people were killed and 14 seriously injured when a helicopter crashed into the roof of a crowded Glasgow pub.
The police chopper smashed into The Clutha pub on Friday night ahead of St Andrew's Day, which celebrates Scotland's patron saint."
Scottish helicopter crash: Eight dead, 14 injured at Glasgow pub The Clutha
Tim Kearney is an incarcerated former Marine who is offered freedom by DEA agent Tad Gruzsa in exchange for impersonating recently-late drug lord Bobby Z. 
Things don't go as planned, however, and Kearney ends up on the run with Bobby Z's 12-year-old son.
Weird and tragic weekend indeed.

UPDATE: 4th December, 2013.
The final death toll from the Cultha pub was 9
" Nine people have been confirmed dead as the search and recovery operation for the helicopter crash site in Glasgow concludes."
"Three Australians injured in a helicopter crash in Antarctica are now receiving medical treatment at Davis Station after being forced to wait more than a day to be rescued from the crash site.
The pilot and two passengers were injured when the chopper came down on Sunday while returning from a scientific mission to survey a penguin colony near the Amery ice shelf, around 278 kilometres from Davis Station."
This crash happened just after Paul Walker died in a fatal car crash and a day after the Scotish helicopter crash.
Note the sync with the Paul Walker movie 
"Eight Below" which takes place in the Antarctic?

I've started reading Penney Peirce's book Frequency, which was named after the movie she saw the day her father passed away, unbeknownst to her on the day.
He was found in his armchair four days later according to Penney.
The book is also about personal frequencies and universal frequencies.

"Because we see the world from a physical perspective, we often don't notice what's right in front of us — that our spirit, thoughts, emotions, and body are all made of energy. 
Inside us and everywhere around us, life is vibrating. 
In fact, each of us has a personal vibration that accurately communicates who we are to the world and helps shape our reality. 
Frequency shows readers how to feel their personal vibration, improve it, and use it to shift their life from ordinary to extraordinary. 
A simple shift in frequency can change depression to peace, anger to stillness, and fear to enthusiasm. 
Weaving together basic ideas from quantum physics with proven intuition development techniques, Frequency takes readers into deeper concepts only hinted at in recent popular books and DVD's featuring the Law of Attraction
By learning to refine the "conscious sensitivity" of their body, readers can improve relationships, find upscale solutions to problems, and materialize a life that contains everything they want and need to live their destiny. 
Frequency gives readers a reassuring, step-by-step roadmap into a positive state of awareness that Peirce calls The Intuition Age
By learning to use "frequency principles" — methods based on the way energy actually functions — readers can keep their energy level high and productive, receive subtle information directly from the environment via "empathic resonance," and quickly free themselves from negative or low "vibrations." "
Frequency: The Power of Personal Vibration
I'm only a little under half way through the book, so it's a bit early to comment on it yet.
I'll update this post when I finish it.  
I'm up to page 79 and have to say I'm finding it a bit of a slog so far,
not like Penney's last book The Intuitive Way.
I hope it picks up as I go along, because so far I don't feel like I've picked up anything new.

Religion Vs Spirituality

I love the spiritual side of the world religions, but am repelled by the dogmatism of many.
There is something powerful and serene sitting in an empty church, temple, or place of religious ceremony and contemplating life, but there is also something repelling listening to a 
"know it all", by the book preacher, guru, or teacher hammering out words of division and "either, or" ultimatums to the congregation.
Give me the spirituality, and keep your dogma.
I'll let my heart decide what sounds right to me, after all 
The Creator did give it to me for a purpose, along with a brain, so I think I'll use them to help me decide what feels right and what feels wrong.
The weapons of FEAR.
Think for yourself, or you will
be a slave.
Think for yourself.
That's why God gave you a
brain and a heart
Think for yourself
And if it's one thing I can't stand it is dogmatic atheists who think they know it all while they walk around with their eyes wide shut preaching without seeing the miracles that surround them.
Talk about the opposite end of the spectrum.

When The Impossible Happens ... to Me

I had a glance at Mike Perry's latest post this morning and saw he was writing about the library angel -
Roman Britain And The Magic Of Synchronicity
I love this concept, as it has worked for me before and I had an inner nudge from somewhere to give this ago, by picking a book I had in my bookcase, but hadn't read yet.
I felt guided to a particular shelf then felt compelled to read Stanislav Grof's book When The Impossible Happens.
When I pulled the book out of the shelf, I felt a very peaceful feeling come over me ... almost meditative.
But I couldn't help looking at the title and thinking as if anything impossible will happen when I read this book.
Then I had a feeling like the "library angel" was having a laugh and saying "you just wait".
I read through the intro at the front with the same peaceful fascination thinking if only I could bottle this feeling that has come over me right now, I'd make a lot of money.
Then I decided to go outside and read in the sunshine to get some free Vitamin D.
I was reading the chapter photographed above about the famous Joesph Campbell story involving his synchronicity with a praying mantis -
"He used to live in Greenwich Village in Manhattan on the 14th floor of a high-rise building. 
His study had two sets of windows--one was overlooking the Hudson River, which was a very beautiful view, and those windows were open much of the time. 
The other two windows faced Sixth Avenue, and they were hardly ever opened. Joseph said those particular windows were only opened a couple of times during the 14 years he lived there.
Joseph was, at the time of this story, working on his
World Encyclopedia of Mythology--in particular, the first volume called The Way of the Animal Powers, a comprehensive encyclopedia of shamanic mythologies of the world. 
And he was specifically working on a chapter on the mythology of the African bushmen of the Kalahari Desert. 
In that mythology, the praying mantis is a central, heroic figure. 
So Joseph was surrounded by all these articles about the
praying mantis and pictures of the praying mantis
Just as he was working on this, he suddenly had this completely irrational impulse to go and open one of the windows on the side that he never opened. 
So he does this and looks out of the window, and he automatically turned his head to the right without really knowing why, and there on the 14th floor of the high-rise building was a great specimen of praying mantis
And Joseph said the praying mantis gave him this meaningful look, and then just continued up the wall. 
So that's a remarkable example of synchronicity, because you don't see many praying mantis in lower Manhattan!"

When I finished reading that incredible sync, I thought wouldn't it be freaky if I looked around now and saw a praying mantis crawling somewhere around me, as I haven't seen one for years.
I looked around and challenged the "library angel" in my mind to produce one now and then I would never doubt in guidance from beyond again.
 But of course, reality seemed to take over and say, not on my watch, buddy.
So, I went inside and did a few chores.
About an hour later my son was leaving for work and as I looked outside I saw there was some junk mail in the letter box and it looked like it was about to rain, so I went out and pulled the mail out of the letter box ... and when I did, something started crawling up my arm.
When I looked down to see what it was, I found out it was a baby praying mantis.
I couldn't believe my eyes.
I thought no one is going to believe something I can barely believe myself; I wish I had a photo of this.
So, I thought I'd see how far I could get without the mantis jumping off my arm.
To my astonishment it made no effort to flee, and it happily posed for as many photos as I cared to take of it.
It even seemed to be posing for me as if it knew this was something it was meant to do.
This is truly my best synchronicity yet.
And this book is shaping up to be my best read yet.
I can understand people thinking this can't be true, but I am willing to be strapped to a lie detector and tell the same story and I will pass no problems.
Yes Mike, there really is a library angel ... that seems to have a thing for praying mantises.
And believe me I haven't seen a praying mantis for years around my house, so this appearance today knocked my socks off. 

 UPDATE: 17/11/13
Sent to me via the link in the comments section below by King UKe.
I think that's enough mantises keeping their eye on me for now, anymore and I'll be reaching for the insect repellent, I think.
