You're dreaming dreaming of a better life
While I'm dreaming dreams of sleeping by your side
I guess I never really got you right..."

The band's final lineup consisted of Kris Leonard (guitar and vocals), River Reeves (guitar), Tomas Lowe (bass), and Jack Dakin (drums).
All four, along with their manager Craig Tarry, died in a car crash in Södertälje, Sweden, on 13 February 2016."
If you are wondering what happened to the post that was here yesterday, I had to scrap it because I realized I miscalculated the time difference between New Zealand and Sweden.
I thought it was 22 hours when in fact it is 12, so my Valentine's Day connections between the Viola Beach accident and the Christchurch earthquake were wrong, but apart from that, there is still some eerie connections that weekend, which I will try to relate in this new re-written post.
Leo dedicated his BAFTA win to his mother who's birthday it just happened to be on the night he won the award.
"I would not be standing here if it weren't for this person," DeCaprio said. "Mom, happy birthday! I love you very much."
Is 69 the new 42?
|11th of November, or 11/11?|
11:11 when seen on a clock is often referred to a "wake up call" among new age and Christian types who see this number often.

No serious damage or fatalities were reported in the Valentine's Day quake that struck at 13:13 local time (00.13 GMT).
Beaches to the east of Christchurch were busy with swimmers and surfers when rocks began to fall into the sea."

What year did Viola Beach form?
And what was the date they died?
And what time on Valentine's Day did the Christchurch earthquake hit?

Oddly enough, the man credited with finding New Zealand,

"On 14 February, the day the news was announced, there was a round of applause for the band at the Premier League match between Manchester City and Tottenham Hotspur.
Manager Craig Tarry was a Manchester City supporter."
And while I happen to be a Tottenham Hotspur supporter, I think a more heartwarming result for both sets of fans on the day probably would have been a draw, but that wasn't to be and Tottenham moved to within two points of Premier League leaders Leicester as (Christ)ian Eriksen struck a late winner."

I put all my spare CDs in the rack on Friday night, and while I had never even heard of the band Viola Beach then, on Valentine's Day I saw the photo of the band sitting on top of the phones boxes, which seemed eerie in hindsight of the passing of a band I knew nothing about until the same weekend I put some of my favourite CDs into this rack.
Life can be a strange and sometimes tragic ride, that's for sure.
My condolences to friends and family of Viola Beach for what turned out to be a sad Valentine's Day weekend indeed, but I'm sure they live on somewhere else.
