I like the IV of CupsRWS tarotcard, not because I see it as the universe offering another one for the road, but for its depiction of the universe offering an opportunity from out of the blue, like a cosmic thought bubble.
I never knew until today that there was a'Spirit of Devonport'ferry until I read the news today, otherwise I would have went on it back in 2016 when I caught the'Spirit of Tasmania'across to Tasmania and back:-(
Sad news with the death of three people in a plane crash west of Brisbane, including ChrisHemsworth's helicopter pilot Gary Liehm, which reminds me of this old post I wrote where Chris picked up a hitch-hiker in Brisbane and flew him down to Byron Bay in a helicopter with him and his mate -
I'm not going to pretend I'm an expert(I hate the wordexpert to be honest, because I've never met one … or know of any living on this planet) on Jordan Peele's reason for referencing the 2001 made (released in 2002 though) movie 'The Scorpion King', but it ain't because there are no horses used in the movie.
Maybe Jordan is using 'The Scorpion King'to highlight Dwayne Johnson's $5.5 million $alary made the Guinness Book Of Records for the highest salary for a first-time leading man?
Or, "in 1995 Egyptologists discovered a 5400 year old limestone carving in Egypt known as the "Scorpion Tableau." It depicts the victory of a ruler called the Scorpion King in a battle that unified Upper Egypt, which was a prelude to the complete unification of Upper and Lower Egypt by Narmer, the first Pharaoh of Egypt. This film is a fictionalized depiction of a historical event about which very little is known. Some historians believe that Narmer, the first Pharaoh, was himself TheScorpion King."
When I stayed to watch right through the credits of 'NOPE' the first time I saw it at the cinema to see if there were any of those end of credit Easter eggs that a lot of movies tag on to the very end of the film, I thought the Jupiter's Claim ride at Universal was just a piss take, but … NOPE … it's real apparently:-)
If Jordan Peele is looking for an idea for a 'NOPE' sequel he should have the Haywoods plus Angel selling their story to Hollywood to make a movie out of their story and another UFO shows up to try to consume them and the skeptical filmmakers while filming the movie at the ranch… and the Haywoods could even have their own You Tube show called "Haywoods Say NOPE";-)
I liked this'Connecting with Coincidence' podcast episode above, where Bernie talks (sometimes like a duck) with Josh Silver, as I had a few personal meaningful coincidences myself while listening to this episode.
I was listening to this podcast episode on my iPad in bed with a signed poster on my bedroom wall behind me of the movie '2001: A Space Odyssey' which I got from a 50th anniversary screening in my hometown -
I don’t think I’ve ever watched‘2010:The Year We Make Contact'because I never liked the trailer and because Stanley Kubrick wasn't the director, plus I never saw the need for a sequel to '2001', just because Clarke wrote a heap of books after '2001' was released.
In his interview, Hyams revealed his initial belief that Simpson was innocent of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friendRon Goldman, but began to have doubts following the revelation of DNA evidence that suggested otherwise.
He appeared in 40 of the shorts between 1939 and 1944, eventually becoming the series' final lead character. Blake's parents also made appearances in the series as extras. In Our Gang, Blake's character, Mickey, was often called upon to cry, for which he was criticized for being unconvincing. He was also criticized for being obnoxious and whiny. In 1942, he acquired the stage name"BobbyBlake" and his character in the series was renamed "Mickey Blake." In 1944, MGM discontinued Our Gang, releasing the final short in the series, Dancing Romeo. In 1995, Blake was honored by the Young Artist Foundation with its Former Child Star "Lifetime Achievement" Award for his role in Our Gang.
