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

I just bought this great little film on DVD and watched it yesterday.
It's the only major film directed by Peter Rodger, even though he was an assistant director on The Hunger Games.
 Oh My God was made around 2009 and would have been thought provoking enough when it came out at the time, but knowing what we know now about Peter Rodger's life, the film can't be seen as anything but tragically ironic, as Peter ponders man's hatred and intolerance to fellow human beings in the name of religion, only to live through the aftermath of his own son's senseless shooting spree and suicide in 2014 -
We Need to Talk About Hollywood 
Also included in the film is an interview with Sir Bob Geldof about whether he believes in "God", or not. 
In hindsight, we know now that Bob would loose his daughter Peaches to a heroin overdose in 2014.

And of course Bob Geldof came into fame with his song 
I Don't Like Mondays
(a song about a girl going on a shooting rampage)
when he was lead singer of 
the group The Boomtown Rats.
It is a very good film...although sadly ironic in hindsight...that deserves viewing in my opinion.

Heady topis here, and worthy for sure. The synchros are bizarre.
