Blackstar & 2001: A Space Odyssey

 A fellow sync blogger who writes a blog called iAhuasca made a very eerie discovery when playing David Bowie's last album Blackstar over the last half of Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey
He writes,
"Go do this: start Blackstar at the end of the first intermission of 2001: A Space Odyssey (let blackstar play a second time to finish)
The music is the exact time of the rest of the film. 
When the Star-ship enters the screen push play."
The first song in the album (Blackstar) syncs like a treat and ends on the "Life Functions Terminated" sign in the movie.
What's that word on the green screen ... C#NT?-)
Then as, "She Was A Whore", starts playing HAL comes into play.

I watched it last night and have to say this is one of the best sync-ups I have ever watched, but don't take my word for it, try it for yourself.
UPDATE: 27th, January, 2016.
 Alan Green from SYNC BOOK Press has also suggested that Mos Def's Blackstar album syncs up quite well with 2001.
You can hear and watch that sync at this link-
