One Very Lucky Little Girl?

I'm sure the 2020 kite festival goers will remember that unscheduled stunt kite performance on Sunday for a very long time to come.

Disney's Black Eyed Children for Children?

When it comes to synchromysticism timing is everything of course, but what an eerie coincidence that Disney/Woolies release their Ooshies in Woolworths supermarkets in Australia * 
Four Melbourne supermarkets cleaned after positive coronavirus cases
*(except the state of Victoria which is in Covid lock-down) on August 26th and that two days later on August 28th Chadwick Boseman who played 'Black Panther' passes away aged 42 43 -

Woolworths Introducing NEW Disney Ooshies!
I picked up my local newspaper on August 26th to see full page ads on pages two and three, and the back of the paper telling parents and children how to let the black eyed characters into your home:-)
I don't think I'd be too keen on seeing a black eyed Russell from the movie 'UP' standing on my front porch asking to be let inside my house:-)
There's that name "CARL" again;-)
I'm Sure That There's a Message Here Somewhere: Black Eyed Children/David WEATHERly/SKYMAN/Carl MerryWEATHER/Michael?
Maybe I've been seeing too many black eyed children stories lately, but these Disney Ooshies do give me the creeps for some reason, and I'm not a paranoid pot-head like my old mate Greg CARLwood at 'The Higherside Chats' podcast, who doesn't trust Disney, as his t-shirt below shows.
I actually bought one of these t-shirts off Greg CARLwood:-)
While Disney might have a Monopoly on your imagination after buying up Marvel, Star Wars, etc, I don't think they are the evil satanic mind controllers CARLwood would like you to believe they are.
But don't let me destroy your fantasy if that's the story you want to believe:-)
Snail Tales and Snail Trails?
So what a time in 2020 for the two big Australian Supermarket chains to market their collectibles to their customers and their children, right?
I thought it was interesting that the Black Widow and Scarlet Witch are right next to each other in the Ooshie newspaper ad, as
Scarlett Johansson plays the Black Widow (a movie that has its release date pushed back because of Covid cinema restrictions) and Elizabeth Olsen who plays Scarlet Witch is from Sherman Oaks, California.
Sharman Oaks says he calls himself Sharman Oaks because he lived in Sherman Oaks:-)
Chadwick Boseman and Chris Hemsworth
At odds of around 36 to 1 I'm kind of tempted to spend $30 at Woolies just to see which Ooshie I would get.
Gotta go now as someone is knocking at my front door.
Disney collection that could make you a fortune?
Probably just one of those pesky kids;-)

Justin Townes Earle Dies at 38?

"Justin Townes Earle, an acclaimed singer-songwriter in the Americana/alt-country field and the son of Steve Earle, has died at age 38, according to an announcement on his social media accounts."
This news hit me harder than most this past week, as I've met Justin's father Steve a few times over the years and have fond memories Steve's live performances at the Byron Bay Blues Fest -
Good Friday at Bluesfest 2016
Steve Earle at Bluesfest 2016
I can't imagine the emotional pain of outliving my own sons, so my heart goes out to you Steve.  
I think Justin's cover of Bruce's 'Atlantic City' is quite apt, as I strongly believe that, "And maybe everything dies, baby, that's a fact, but maybe everything that dies someday comes back..."
Although, that's probably not much comfort when you have to deal with the events surrounding this life first.
The date of the 13th of September would have meant nothing to me back in 2010, but in 2016 when my father died on that date it has since lodged into my memory as one of those dates I can't forget -
You Can Never Walk Along the Same River Twice
My thoughts are with you and Justin's family in this tough year of 2020 Steve.

The Pointy End of Dreams, Premonitions and Signs?

I saw a picture in the May 15th, 2020 Queensland newspaper (pictured above) of an echidna, the Australian equivalent of the hedgehog, breaking into people's homes around the Sunshine Coast area in Queensland.

No More Dancing in the Streets ... for a While?
A few days later I heard a podcast featuring Gary Lachman talking about a book he was writing about dreams and precognition, where he talked about a woman dreaming of picking up a hedgehog from the road, only to see an Instagram post about saving the hedgehog when she awoke.
Gary also mentioned a book he wrote about Trump and the
Pepe the Frog meme -

I then heard Gary mention the hedgehog dream again on another podcast -

Chadwick Boseman the Actor Who Played Jackie Robinson and Black Panther is Dead at 42?

At the time of Chadwick's passing his IMDB page stated he was 42
Sad, but eerily synchromystic news when you think about it.
Jake Kotze features Chadwick Boseman as Jackie Robinson and the 42 syncs in this old You Tube below. 
Google 42 and My Stats?
The Black Panther?
So who is right about Boseman's age?
His IMDB page says he is born in 1977, but his Wikipedia page says he was born in 1976.
The same news article can't even decide exactly how old Chadwick Boseman was.

UPDATE: August 30th, 2020
Well surprise, surprise, it looks like Wikipedia was right for once, as Chadwick Boseman's IMDB page has been changed overnight to push his birthday back one year making him 43 years old at the time of his passing.
The conflict over his age between IMDB and Wikipedia still makes the number 42 a synchromystic number surrounding Chadwick's life and acting career I think.
