& presentations from...
- Alan Green (Sync Book Press)

But mostly, it's an opportunities to enjoy sync in a magickal town at the most beautiful time of year, in a state where pot and gay marriage are legal, and the death penalty isn't.
We are raising funds to cover travel expenses for our presenters.
In order to produce the best event possible we need great presenters and even those who are willing to contribute their talents and insight for free, still need help with their travel and lodging.

The funds we are raising will cover these costs. Anything left over will pay to document the event so those who are unable to attend will still be able to enjoy the event.
If the experience of synchronicity inspires you, then you're like us, and we'd like to meet you in Olympia this summer. Your participation in this campaign will make it a reality we can all share.

Other Ways You Can Help

Please share this campaign with your friends and loved ones who dig sync.

Sync Book Vol.2 on Red Ice Radio

Red Ice Radio with Alan Abbadessa-Green, Douglas Bolles and William Klaus

Bonus Sync:
You know how, at the end of each Red Ice episode, they announce upcoming guests? Well, the first Red Ice show to announce me at the end was Steven Greer's "Sirius" episode. I thought that was pretty neat, considering my repeated Sirius syncs. Well, it got funnier, as the episode that aired directly before ours was about Syria (which readers of this blog will know is also connected to Sirius).

Mega Therion's Promethean Space Odyssey

In the second episode of Synchronize, Will Morgan talks about the ways my book, Look at All the Happy Creatures, syncs with the movie Prometheus.  Though I haven't seen the film, I was reminded of a recent message I was sent from JmJml of that suggested Prometheus is subtly referencing 2001: A Space Odyssey in a movie "mistake". . .
In his last point, "a planet that looks exactly like Saturn" would be a reference to the 2001ASO book in which the main planet was Saturn, not Jupiter. The idea of a 2001ASO connection is also strengthened by this image I found while looking for a Charlize Theron picture from Prometheus, in which she sits among red chairs . . .
. . . which look a lot like the chairs from 2001ASO's space station.

Regardless, as I've said, I still haven't seen the movie (and am in no rush to do so) so this sync went mostly ignored by me. That is, until today, when an unrelated series of events caused me to look up an old Topps trading card series I had as a kid, called Dinosaurs Attack! . . .  The first thing I notice upon looking at the cards for the first time in many many years is a space station that looks exactly like that from 2001ASO.

It took only another moment to look at the reverse side of that Dinosaurs Attack! card and find out that the space station in question was called Prometheus . . .
. . . just like the ship in Scott's film.
The story of Dinosaurs Attack! has a Time-disruption occur on the Prometheus space station and Saturn is the god of Time. Now, in the 2001ASO sequel, 2010: The Year We Make Contact, Saturn ignites into a second sun called Lucifer. Readers of this blog should not need to have the correlations between Lucifer and Prometheus explained to them -- suffice to say, they are pretty interchangeable archetypes . . .
. . . and they are both "Light-Bearing" rebellious figures that too often get cast in the role of a devil. (We should note that Saturn too often gets lumped in as a Satan.)
Since 2001/2010 ends with a confrontation with Lucifer and Scott's Prometheus references this figure in the very title, we should not be surprised to find Dinosaurs Attack! end with a confrontation between the crew of the space station Prometheus and a devil-like figure who brings flames.

(Note that the 2001ASO book has exactly 47 chapters)

Similarly, we have actress Charlize Theron resonating with this great beast, as many synchromystics have explored Charlize's connection to what Crowley called "Mega Therion"
So, having the original line in question about the proximity to Jupiter in the film Prometheus spoken by Charlize Therion, makes this all the more syncnificant, since Jupiter/Saturn becomes Lucifer, a second Sun, and Crowley considered Therion not only the Beast but also the Sun!

Also, in the 2001/2010 story, Saturn/Lucifer destroys Dave Bowman's spaceship . . .
. . . just as a reversal in the Saturnian Time-disruption leads to the destruction of space station Prometheus in Dinosaurs Attack!

Finally, the back of the "Prometheus Explodes!" card features the number 32 -- associated to the number of paths in the Kabbalistic Tree of Life. This may interest those of you who paid attention to the Mask of God post where I compared the movie posters for Kubrick's 2001ASO and his Paths of Glory -- as related to the 32 Paths of Glory on the Tree.

For what it is worth, since this all started with the Prometheus sync from Look at All the Happy Creatures, the novel starts with the story of Prometheus in the first chapter and ends with a scene inspired by 2001ASO. The Happy Creatures novel is also exactly 47 chapters long.

Oh and hey, just as I was about to post this, I realized that Prometheus was released in theaters on June 8th 2012 --the anniversary of which is in two days.

History in Kubrick by Andras Jones

As some of you already know, my life has been a bit hectic lately (moving a few hours south and trying to wrap up writing the Suicide Kings book, among other things) so that's why there hasn't been a new blog post here in a while. Regardless, I'm happy to offer you something brand new and unique today, a special guest post from Andras Jones. You see, while talking to Andras about Suicide Kings and Kubrick and whatever else we were yapping about, we started talking about a strange little feature of Kubrick release dates. In the book I'm documenting 3 Kubrick movies whose releases coincided with King-Kills (DrStrangelove=JFK, 2001:ASO=MLK, EyesWideShut=JFKjr). When I told this to Andras, he started to wonder what else happened on the days that Kubrick films came out. A damn good question, and the man has done some damn good digging to find out. I'm presenting this material as Andras wrote it, and have only tossed in a few notes and additions in green text.

We will be discussing this list and many tangents (to be sure) on tomorrow's Always Record with 
Bill Klaus, David Plate, Andras Jones, John Fell Ryan, Mark LeClair and myself.

I want to thank Andras for presenting this idea because, among other fascinating tidbits, I think it offers us a new way to compare the films. Bill Klaus has of course created the "Kubrick Transformer" and I posited the movie poster angle on the Mask of God blog. But, with Andras' info, we can now take two films that had similar events coinciding with their releases (such as the films with Yankees/RedSox games), and ponder what that tells us about the way the two movies sync.

Here we go:


History in Kubrick
By Andras Jones

In a conversation with Alan Abbadessa-Green, regarding the deaths and assassinations associated with the release dates of certain Stanley Kubrick films (a subject Alan explores in his book "Suicide Kings") it struck me that looking into the release dates for all of Kubrick’s films might reveal more interesting data. It does.

Just a few things before I give you the facts…

First, I explored these dates with simple Google and Wiki searches. It is by no means comprehensive and I invite others to add to it.

Second, I was struck by the way Kubrick’s earliest films, the ones he had the least control over (in terms of scheduling) had the most exciting syncs. Of course, it is possible that not enough history has accrued around the latter dates, and we may only be aware of the synchronistic resonance of June 26, 1987 (Full Metal Jacket) in a few decades.

What’s pretty clear as we view these dates is a strong correlation between Kubrick and rockets (missiles & spaceships) and the visual mediums (TV, satellites, celebrity) as well as strains of the Kennedy assassination, natural disasters, the twin Holocausts (US & Germany) and the Yankees v. Red Sox rivalry in baseball.

Yanks vs Reds (Prop cover from 2010:YWMC)

What is most interesting about this list is its apparent lack of intentionality. If we rule out a conspiracy on the part of the author as a factor here, we can simply take measure of the historic barnacles that attach themselves to the hull of a great artist’s vessel as it passes through consciousness. And just because we’ve taken the author’s intention out of the equation doesn’t mean our exploration won’t reveal something unique about the artist. In fact, I think we can learn just as much from the unintended consequences of Kubrick’s (or any artist’s work) as we can from knowing what they were trying to do. Of course, Kubrick, because of his longevity, the multi-leveled complexity of his films, and the amount of control he was able to exert over his productions, lends himself particularly well to this kind of exploration.
That said, and with all due respect to Mr. Kubrick, I see this list as an exquisite demonstration of the authorship of sync expressing itself through the constellation of action, documentation, time and the synchromystic witness (that’s us).

We begin with Kubrick’s first film, a documentary called “Day of The Fight”.

Day Of The Fight
April 26, 1951

IMDB-description: “Based on Kubrick's pictorial for Look Magazine (January 18, 1949*) entitled "Prizefighter," "Day Of The Fight" tells of a day in the life of a middleweight Irish boxer named Walter Cartier, particularly the day of his bout with black middleweight Bobby James. This 16-minute short opens with a short (about 4 minutes) study of boxing's history, narrated by veteran newscaster Douglas Edwards in a no-nonsense, noir tone of voice. After this, we follow Walter (and his twin brother Vincent) through his day as he prepares for his 10:00 P.M. bout. After eating breakfast, going to early mass and eating lunch, he starts arranging his things for the fight at 4:00 P.M. By 8:00, he is waiting in his dressing room, where he undergoes a mental transformation, turning into the fighting machine the crowd clamors for. At 10:00, he faces James, and soon, he comes out victorious in a short match which was filmed live on April 17th, 1950**.”

* January 18, 1949 - KING Vidor’s film adaptation of Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead was released (without irony):

** April 17, 1950 - (The day, “Day of The Fight” was shot ) Soviet Union Shoots Down US Plane: America accuses the “Reds” of shooting down a US Plane over the Baltic Sea in an unprovoked attack.

Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Love The Bomb
Release date: Complicated:
January 29, 1964

On Nov. 22, 1963, Stanley Kubrick was supposed to present his new film, Dr. Strangelove, Or: How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb, to the press. Shortly before the screening, word arrived that President Kennedy had been assassinated that day. The screening was canceled and, because the film treats a U.S. President character with less than the utmost respect, changes were made before the film’s release. The character of Major Kong had a line describing how “a fella could have a pretty good weekend in Dallas”—but because the President had been killed in Dallas, the line was changed to “in Vegas.” A pie-throwing sequence that Kubrick found too silly was also cut; it would have included the line “our beloved President has been struck down in his prime.” The film’s planned London premiere, scheduled for Dec. 12 that year, was also cancelled. Dr. Strangelove eventually opened in the U.S. on Jan. 29, 1964.
