I'll Never Get Out of This World Alive?

Born on 11/11
I wrote about my twin Baz Luhrmann Fantales wrappers in my recent post (not to forget birthday boy Hugh Jackman, as well) -
Fantales and Synchromysticism in the Age of IMDB?
And I have to say that I much prefer IMDB when it comes to looking up info on the stars of the screen when it comes to their stars.
And their fate?
Well, even if you don't believe in fate, what about eerie coincidences?
For instance I found out that Baz Luhrmann and Hank Williams both share September 17th as their birthday.
Hank was nicknamed "The Hillbilly Shakespeare" and, "on the early morning hours on New Year's Day 1953, while traveling through West Virginia on the way to a show in Canton, Ohio, Hank Williams died in his sleep in the back seat of his Cadillac limousine at the age of 29."
I was surprised to learn that Gian-Carlo Coppola also had a birthday on September 17th, because at the moment I'm reading 'The Bling Ring' which was the gang of thieves made more famous in Sofia Coppola's movie of the same name.
I didn't know about Gian-Carlo getting killed in a speedboat accident in 1986, or that his fiancΓ©e was 2 months pregnant with his daughter, Gia Coppola, who was born on New Year's Day, 1987, which eerily was the anniversary of Hank Williams' death.
The movie I wrote about starring Sam Neill called 'Palm Beach' involved a similar speed boat accident in the movie's plot -
Just a 'Touch' Reckless There Kiefer?
Bad Omens: The Final Finals Conflict ... For 2019?
Oddly enough, Baz being one of this year's patrons at BIFF selected Sofia's dad's movie 'Apocalypse Now: Final Cut' to be shown on October 4th, 2019 at the Gallery of Modern Art in Brisbane, to which I nearly went, but something came up and I had to give it a miss.
I watched the last movie that Sofia had directed on Netflix the other night and noticed Australian Angourie Rice was in it.
I also noticed her birthday is New Year's Day, 2001.
In my local paper was the news of Sofia's next film being made titled 'On The Rocks' and it was right next to a bling story:-)
Happy Birthday Hugh:-)
The End?


  1. Wow! What an intriguing string of synchros! For me, it often comes back to, Who's orchestrating this stuff?!

  2. Seems pretty easy to answer for me Trish, the "Collective Unconscious" or "God" if you prefer ... or not:-)
    Call it a rose, "the universe", The Force, "whatever" for all I care, because everything is a part of it.
    But that's just the way I see Life I guess.
