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

You Talkin' to/about Me and Other Sync-heads Todd?-)

Oh wow, 11:11 on a clock?

I've written a few posts already about Todd Phillips' movie 'Joker', like this one -
DC, Comics, Masks and Synchromysticism?
where I wrote about Todd's next movie about Hulk Hogan and star Chris Hemsworth having the same birthday of August 11th, which is also the anniversary of Robin Williams passing.
By the way, I noticed that the Hulk Hogan movie brings Chris Hemsworth's acting roles to 42 on his IMDB page:-)
When I saw 'Joker' at the cinema I noticed the movie starts off with a Gotham City weather forecast with the temperature being 42 degrees.
Which to me was either a shout out to pop culture nerds who see that as the ultimate answer to life, the universe and everything, or to get the ball rolling to point out a possible mental illness involved in people who like to think that everything is connected in an apophenic way, like those loonies who made that BTTF Predicts 9/11 video;-)
Those guys need to be put into a padded cell for their own good ... and maybe hung upside down, as well:-)
But I also noticed ... or think I did ... that the Joker punches out literally at 11:11 in the movie when he is fired for doing a Patch Adams act at a children's hospital where accidentally his concealed pistol falls onto the floor in front of the sick kids.
Yeah, I know that clock above is not showing 11:11, but just pretend you see it, could ya?
Just humour me and keep with the theme of this post:-)
In the Art of Comedy (Life/Synchromysticism) Timing is Everything in a World Gone Mad?
The joke's on the Joker, but he don't get it?-)
All in all, Todd does a good job at turning the mirror on the audience and modern society and its problems ... whether we see it or not  ... or just think we see it:-)
The Joker Ignores His Wake Up Call (11:11)?
