John Avildsen, Oscar-winning Director of Rocky, Dies Aged 81

Weird, I just saw that the director of 'Rocky' and the 'Karate Kid' passed away in this news article today -

But what struck me on a personal synchromystic level was that John also directed a lesser-known film titled '8 Seconds' about a bull riding champ and I had just written a post about an Australian bull rider and a controversial bull slaughtering ritual that took place today in Australia -

I had also mentioned the movie 'Rocky' in a post about the year 1977, which was the year 'Rocky' won the 'Best Movie' Oscar -
1977: The Present Can Only Be Viewed from the Past?
You'll see 'Rocky' posters in the 'Saturday Night Fever' movie clip above.
So, who said everything isn't connected in this world that we live in?
In Australia for instance the Bull statues in the town of Rockhampton (AKA Rocky) keep getting their testicles stolen by vandals.

Oh balls: vandals target Rocky bulls
"Central Queensland University's student union president, Brendan Kirkman, says the statues have proven irresistible to pranksters.
"It seems to be a bit of an ongoing trend in
Rockhampton that the bulls will lose some of their pieces - the bulls' balls," he said.
"It's the long-running joke that they be collected or removed."

That's gotta make your eyes water.
And I saw this story as well today, about cows that have a beef with koalas -
