Synchromysticism

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

The Hollywood Dream/Nightmare and Synchromysticism?

I read a news story yesterday where Corey Feldman accused
Jon Grissom as being someone who sexually assaulted him when he was a child star.
Corey Feldman names two of his alleged sexual abusers
Jon Grissom starred in only two Hollywood movies, both of which starred Corey Feldman and Corey Haim (who is now deceased).
I've seen pretty much none of the movies I'm going to write about in this post, but I have watched the trailers and read up on them a little in my research for this post.
But what really grabbed my attention here was not so much all the pedophilia allegations revoling around the two films starring the alleged pedophile Jon Grissom, but the director of the film 'Dream a Little Dream', Marc Rocco.
"Marc Rocco was born on June 19, 1962 in Los Angeles, California, USA as Marc Daniel King
He was a producer and director, known for The Jacket (2005), Murder in the First(1995) and Where the Day Takes You (1991).
He was married to Lisa Rocco.
He died on May 1, 2009 in Northridge, California."
Marc died in his sleep on the 1st of May (May Day?!).
Now I've been watching quite a bit of David Lynch directed movies and TV shows recently, as you would have guessed from a recent post I wrote -
So apart from the recently deceased Harry Dean Stanton's role in 'Dream a Little Dream' and his recent role in Lynch and Frost's 'Twin Peaks: The Return', which got my attention, where was another Marc Rocco film that really grabbed my attention with all of the actors who starred in that movie as well as Lynch's movies and TV shows and that movie was 'Where the Day Takes You'.
Ironically, 
"Alyssa Milano initially auditioned for the role of Heather 
['Where the Day Takes You'].
Although she impressed the crew, they were reluctant to assign a former child star in the role. 
She was given a smaller role instead."
'Where the Day Takes You' doesn't star Corey Feldman, but it was Will Smith's first movie role.
"Feldman also expressed his frustration with the way he is being pressured to reveal the names of more pedophiles.
He restated how he named names in the past during a Michael Jackson investigation, but nothing was done.
During her turn to interview Feldman Megyn Kelly mentioned how she contacted Santa Barbara police to get their side, but did not hear back from them."
The Six Degrees of Separation of Andras Jones in Hollywood's House of Cards?
Anthony Rapp and Andras Jones in 'Far From Home'
Marc Rocco seemed to like writing movies that had a nightmare theme to them, as you can see from one of the last movies he wrote and produced called, 'The Jacket'.
And just to give Marc Rocco that 'Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon' touch also, Marc directed Kevin Bacon in a nightmarish movie called 'Murder in the First'.
Marc Rocco's father by marriage to his mother was actor
Alex Rocco, probably best known from playing the character Moe Greene in 'The Godfather' movies.
Alex passed away in 2015 and his last movie oddly enough was a horror movie called 'Don't Sleep'.
Marc Rocco was married to a Hollywood make-up artist named
Lisa Rocco and their wedding anniversary was September 8th.
I don't know why September 8th rings a bell for me this year for some reason;-)
Hollywood just seems to be one big nightmare at the moment.
