Great (Jake) Scott!!! More Siren Connections?

May the 1st?
I've already written a post about Ridley Scott's new movie 'All the Money in the World' and the connections to all the players in and about that movie to Tim Buckley's song, 'Song to the Siren' -
All the Money in the World on Life's Lost Highway?
The movie 'All the Money in the World' is about the kidnapping of 16-year-old John Paul Getty III (Balthazar Getty's father).
Balthazar was the guy in the 'Lost Highway' 'Song to the Siren' love scene.
Michelle Williams plays Gail Harris (Balthazar Getty's Grandmother) in the movie 'All the Money in the World' and Michelle's late ex-partner Heath Ledger, who she has a daughter to, also filmed a love scene in the movie 'Candy' to 'Song to the Siren'.
But here is a rather bizarre fact, Heath passed away on January 22nd, which happens to be Balthazar Getty's birthday, too.
Chis Knowles at 'The Secret Sun' blog has been making some rather eerie connections to Tim Buckley's 'Song to the Siren', which made its big debut on 'The Monkees' TV show in 1968.
Mermaid Apocalypse: Social Engineering through Memetic Overkill
But it was a comment that Andrew W. Griffin made to the Chris Knowles post about the mermaid apocalypse where Andrew mentioned his post about the mermaids in the movie 'Head' starring 'The Monkees'.
Fairy tales and mermaid tails: Cascading through our consciousness
"It is in the beginning of this cult film that Mike, Micky, Davy and Peter "commit suicide" by jumping off of a bridge, as a way of "killing" the pre-teen pop image that these adult men found so suffocating. 
As they float underwater, amidst psychedelic colors, mermaids swim up to the land-dwelling Monkees and presumably "save" the group, although they have gone from "square society" and emerged in a sort of colorful, acid-fueled "Upside Down" where they encounter Sonny Liston, Frank Zappa and Annette Funicello, among others, as the ego slips away ..."
When Andrew mentioned about The Monkees jumping off the bridge and the mermaids they then encounter, his comment made me think of the post I wrote about Ridley Scott and the movie 'All the Money in the World' and 'Song to the Siren'.
Because Ridley's famous brother and movie director Tony Scott jumped to his death from a bridge in 2009.
I've written post about Tony before on my blog -
But I was intrigued when I saw that Ridley had a son named Jake Scott who was also a director.
"Jake Scott (born 1965) is an English film director who works primarily in the field of music videos.
Most of his works were produced under the Ridley Scott Associates banner or RSA's music video subdivision Black Dog Films.
But what really got my attention was that Jake Scott had shot the 'When You're Gone' segment of 'The Cranberries' 2002 video 'The Cranberries - Stars - The Best Videos 1992-2002'.
Jake Scott also worked with 'Soundgarden' and has a videography credit for their song 'Burden in My Hand'.
"Written by frontman Chris Cornell, "Burden in My Hand" was released on September 18, 1996, as the second single from the band's fifth studio album, Down on the Upside (1996).
The song topped the Billboard Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, where it spent five weeks at number one.
The song was included on Soundgarden's 1997 greatest hits album, A-Sides."
Jake also did the Massive Attack 'Pray for Rain' video and the George Michael: Flawless, Go to the City video.
George Michael also did a cover of 'Song to the Siren'.
Jake Scott also worked on Pink's 'God is a DJ' video.
Pink is going to sing the national anthem at the 2018 Superbowl, too.
A Birthday on the Super Blue/Blood Moon, a Halftime Show at the Superbowl and #TimesUp?
The w/hole just seems to get deeper, don't it?-)
Patriots' Day?
I'll bet that Mark Wahlberg won't be leaving the stadium at half-time this year.
You would think with The Patriots maybe about to go back-to-back this year that Mark wouldn't be missing this final for 'All the Money in the World';-)
Starring Mark Wahlberg
