The art of realizing meaningful coincidence in the seemingly mundane with mystical or esoteric significance."

Fire, Fox(x) and Windows

Glasgow School of Art - one of Scotland's most iconic buildings.
Strange, I noticed one of my old posts titled FireFoxx was getting quite a few hits the last few days, so I re-read it and remembered that it was about the popular Snooty Fox restaurant at Olinda in the Dandenong Ranges being destroyed by fire, as well as Jamie Foxx and his role as Electro for the then announced movie Spiderman 2.
Then I see that the Glasgow School of Art was destroyed by fire on the 23rd May, 2014.
"Eyewitnesses said the fire appeared to have started when a projector exploded in the basement of the Charles Rennie Mackintosh building just before 12:30. 
As far as I know it started from a spark which has gone on to foam, expanding foam."
Glasgow School of Art: Fire crews battle to save building
"The Mackintosh building, completed in 1909, is "unique" in that it is a working art school as well as a work of art.
From the facade to the fixtures and fittings every detail shows the craft of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Scotland's most-lauded designer."

The Mackintosh Building Windows?
"In recent years, Glasgow School of Art has produced many of the UK's leading contemporary artists such as Douglas Gordon and David Shrigley and three recent Turner Prize winners: Simon Starling in 2005, Richard Wright in 2009 and Martin Boyce in 2011.
Other former students include actors Robbie Coltrane 
and Peter Capaldi and artist Peter Howson."
Robbie Coltrane

Robbie Coltrane plays a Russian named Zukovsky 
in the Bond movie GoldenEye.
"When a deadly satellite weapon system falls into the wrong hands, only Agent 007 can save the world from certain disaster. 
Armed with his license to kill, Bond races to Russia in search of the stolen access codes for Goldeneye an awesome space weapon that can fire a devastating electromagnetic pulse toward Earth."
 Coltrane also voices a character named Lord Dingwellin the movie Brave,
a female Robin Hood type movie by the looks of it.
And he plays the doctor in Effie Gray, a look at the mysterious relationship between Victorian art critic John Ruskin and his teenage bride Effie Gray.
Also starring in Effie Gray is an actor named James Fox.
James Fox played George Orwell in a TV movie in 1984 titled  
The Road to 1984,
"1984 was not a leap into the future-but a look at the dangers already present-in Orwell's lifetime. 
The Road to 1984 intertwines vision and reality. 
It displays the passion and chronicles the career of Orwell--
who warned us of what could happen if we stayed on that road--
his road to 1948 and ours to 1984
1984 was the year the Apple MacIntosh (1984)
was released.
