White Noise/Balloons?๐ŸŽˆ๐Ÿ’ญ

Another synchromystic film from Jake Kotze that is back up again after being struck down by You Tube when it first aired, ironically enough:-)
Charles Manson died on November 19th, which was Adam Driver's birthday and of course Margot Robbie who played Barbie also played Sharon Tate in 'Once Upon a Time ... in Hollywood'.

The Devil is WOKE in 2023?๐Ÿ˜‡๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿค‘๐Ÿ’ธ

Looking at the posters for the "new" Exorcist movie I first thought it was going to be a black and white movie ... then I saw the trailer and it turns out it is;-)
I'm not against seeing movies with original content being shot with a "diverse" cast, but it's becoming a bit of a Hollywood joke re-imagining old films to try and please the PC crowd, I think.
What next, 'The Shining' with one black twin and one white twin trying to convince an Asian kid on a trike to "come and join us, Danny" while a white father chases them round the Overlook with a pair of editing scissors?-P 
The Exorcist: Believer (2023)
imagine there's no heaven ...?

UPDATE: August 1st, 2023
I saw 'Talk To Me' yesterday and what a classic horror film it is ... or soon will be.
Now that's how you make a classic new horror movie with a "diverse" cast, I think, instead of trying to re-imagine classic films with a "diverse" cast.
But maybe I'm just talking to the hand, right?-)
We had planned on seeing 'Oppenheimer' yesterday, but, "if you want to make God laugh, then tell God your plans", right?-)

Christopher Nolan, Oppenheimer, Arthur Stace and Eternity?๐ŸŽฅ֍๐Œบ֎๐ŸŽฌ

Happy Birthday today, 
Christopher Nolan.
I haven't seen 'Oppenheimer' yet, but I'm hoping to this week sometime (if you want to make God laugh, tell God your plans, right?-).
I'm not a religious person like Arthur Stace was, but I do believe we all live on after death and I often ponder the idea of how long eternity is, like I'm trying to solve a zen koan.
Today I noticed a lot of traffic to a 10-year-old post of mine about Mr.Eternity (AKA Authur Stace) and I realized it was the anniversary of the day Aurthur passed today, too -
I noticed that Oppenheimer died the same year as Stace (1967), which was the year my NRL team the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks entered the competition.
The Sharks got beaten 28-0 by the Panthers (who also entered the NRL in 1967) last night, so you could say the Sharks bombed this weekend ... or sunk.

From the Mind of Stephen King ... and Guy de Mauspassant: 'The Boogeyman' and 'The Terror'?๐ŸŒ‘๐Ÿ˜จ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ‘ป

After having read the 
'Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde' and then listened to a series of short stories by Guy De Mauspassant, I saw the movie 'The Boogeyman' at the cinema with my youngest son (now 29 years old) who is a big King fan, and it dawned on me that King is heavily influenced by authors such as 
Robert Louis Stevenson with the Jekyll and Hyde theme and Guy De Mauspassant's short stories and boogeyman themes.
And of course, those authors were influenced by authors who came before them, such as Poe, Shelly, Bronte, etc.
"The Terror" by Guy De Maupassant
'The Boogeyman' is based on a short story of King's from his book 'Nightshift', but the basic story has been expanded and changed for the movie version, leaving only a skeletal version of the original short story, as King's version was more of a 'Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde' story than a Guy De Mauspassant type short story of the irrational fear of the dark.
It's quite obvious that the director of this movie Rob Savage is a Kubrick fan like I am and has paid homage to Kubrick with The Shining easter eggs all through this movie.
There are references to room 237 in addresses and cell phone messages throughout the movie, as well as the moon light that the young girl sleeps with in her bed at night.
And on a personal synchromystic note, as soon as I had seen 'The Boogeyman' someone donated a light up plastic moon to the charity shop I work at part time that week, so I bought it.
The moon light I can now sleep with at night:-)
Rob even mentions in a 'Post Mortem' podcast interview to Mick Garris that originally the main character was going to be a little boy instead of a little girl, which makes me think of Danny from 'The Shining' was Rob's intention there maybe, but probably a little too obvious and may have pissed King off, since it is well known how King felt about Kubrick's take on 'The Shining'?
Post Mortem podcast with Mick Garris: Rob Savage 
Fear - Guy de Maupassant
Most people like a good short scary story ... or even an average length movie based on them it seems.
Now I'm hooked on podcasts about them thanks to Guy De Mauspassant and his short stories.
I just fear that I won't live long enough to hear them all;-)
Give me De Mauspassant over King any day when it comes to scary short stories.

Did Mick Garris Say "Talk To Me"?๐ŸŽฅ๐Ÿค๐Ÿ‘„๐Ÿ˜ถ✋๐ŸŽฌ

I was going to the cinema next week with my youngest son
(who is 29 now) to see 'Oppenheimer' until the latest Mick Garris podcast hit my iPad where he talks to the twin Australian directors of a film called 'Talk To Me', which was shot in Adelaide, Australia and hit Australian cinemas this week.
My son unlike me, is a huge Stephen King fan (I'm a huge Kubrick fan), so a film like this one should be right up his alley -

The last time I had heard of the

Looks like Christopher Nolan's movie misses out on my money this coming week, and right on his birthday (July 30th) worse luck;-)
Maybe we'll go Moonday instead, out of respect to Chris having his birthday on Sunday?-)

Sometimes BEEing Yourself Can Be Hard ... Just Ask Jesus?๐Ÿฏ๐Ÿ

Beeing a big John Lennon fan, but not so much a fan of Sinรฉad O’Connorit wasn't lost on me that O'Conner's birthday was December 8th, and December 8th was the day a lunatic gunned John down.
I watched 'Don’t Give Up', a duet between Willie Nelson and Sinรฉad O’Connor yesterday that I had never known about before, which seems very ironic from this point in time.

Sinรฉad O'Connor (1966-2023)
Sinรฉad O’Connor died ... or was at least found home alone dead on July 26th, which being also a fan of Carl Jung's work is not lost on me that July 26th is Jung's birthday.
