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

Pepe and Kermit the Frog ... and Q ... Memes and the Rainbow Connection?

The first appearance of Q?-)
Episode 13: Gary Lachman
Mind Meld 242
Feels Good Man (2020)
I wrote a post recently about listening to Garry Lachman (ex-guitarist from the band 'Blondie') on a recent 'Skeptiko' podcast -
DEMOlitioN of the Rational?-)
And I did an Apple Podcast search to find out what other recent podcasts Garry had been on lately.
I found two very interesting podcasts where Gary talks about Q Anon, Pepe the Frog, Kek and memes with Jennifer Sodini and Michael Phillip on their podcast shows.
Pepe the Frog
Ke[k?]rmit the Frog
I couldn't help thinking how Pepe the Frog seemed to be a vulgar parody of Kermit the Frog in some way, even if unconsciously by the artist.
And when I looked into the histories of both frogs I thought how amusing it was that in one of Kermit's first sketches titled
'Visual Thinking' on a show called Sam and Friends back in 1959 he is seen visualizing the letter Q:-)
Everything is connected, haven't you heard?-)
Garry Lachman wrote this Blondie hit in the You Tube below.
But even rainbows can be co-opted as a meme by certain groups, too.
Being straight I've got nothing against Gay people, but why should wearing a rainbow denote or be seen as support for a sexual orientation or lifestyle?
Isn't that a meme, too?
Super Bowl-ing Alone?
A Clockwork Orange meme?
The Clockwork Orange Effect?
All of this talk about synchromysticism, mind control, memes and sex reminds me of Sigmund Freud for some reason.
Maybe because it's September 23rd and my birthday, and the day which Siggy passed away on as well?-)
Don't you just love coincidence?
I'm sure Carl Jung would:-)
Oh, and happy birthday to you too Bruce:-)
... man?-)
And did Subway Australia just pinch two-thirds of Pepe the Frog's catch cry?
