Christopher Guest and then I had to Google him to find out just who he was, so saying that I was a fan of these movies was probably the wrong word if I didn't know, or care who the director of these movies was.
Let's just say I liked these movies then.
When I knew who Christopher Guest was I looked up his IMDB page to see if he had made any more of these quirky fake documentary movies starring Jane...and he had.

Now, Jane's book was published in 2011, but I bought it in early 2016 in a book-sale and didn't read it until the Cubs had just won the World Series this year.
In the book (see photo above) Jane tells of being in a movie with Chuck Connors called 'Taxi Killer' and how Chuck had played 66 games at first base for the Cubs in 1951 and how she was a huge Cubs fan.
'Taxi Killer' is rated 6.6 on the IMDB site, too, at the moment.
Personally synchy for me again, as my dad was a taxi driver and passed away in September this year just before the Cubs would break the biggest losing streak in Major League baseball and the Sharks would break a 49 year existence in the NRL without ever winning a grand final trophy.
Not only that, but Jane talks about her and Carol Burnett, who played her mum in 'Glee', singing, 'Ohio', as Carol's character was supposed to be from Ohio in 'Glee', which is where the team the Cubs would beat in the World Series were from.

After watching Jane's last movie appearance in the
Christopher Guest film 'Mascots', which was released in 2016

It was an interesting read in ways similar to Magda Szubanski's memoir about coming out as a gay actor -
Magda Szubanski, Rainbows, The 2016 Byron Bay Writer's Festival, Jung and Synchronicity
And the last page of Jane Lynch's book pretty much sums up synchronicity and going with the flow in life and where it can lead you.
I take it as a "happy accident" that I came across Jane's book at the beginning of 2016 and read it near the end of 2016 and then watched 'Mascots' and reflected back to all the weird mascot synchs I had in 2016.

I still won't be watching 'Glee' though...sorry.
But I might buy Jane's new Christmas album to get into the swing of Christmas while I read Joe Hill's novel NOS4A2. ;-)
