Sync or Swim: Taste the Sound of Purple




OK, we have a lot of syncs to sort through and I am very much pressed for time, so let's try to go over this quickly now and get more in-depth on it all later. In fact, I think a kind of brief objective review is a good idea because my head is spinning so fast I'm afraid it might actually time-travel.

All I can say is that remember all that stuff you were rolling your eyes at yesterday? Well, maybe a weekend rethink is in order.



OK, so yesterday the skies over Florida went purple and kind of freaked a lot of people out. Dedicated Sunners will remember that we've been seeing a whole catalog of weirdness up there as of late so let's just say this is just one more item for the files.



As you can see it caused a bit of a hullaballoo on the Internets. It's adding to the overall apocalyptic resonances kicked up in Michael's wake. 

But let's take a quick look at those skies here, because I'll be damned if they don't remind me quite a bit of something else we just looked at yesterday.

Oh, I'm sorry; it was embedded in one of those bits you always skip over. 


And that's one of the covers for the Violaine CD single. Kind of a bit cloudy, innit? That Starchild-looking face being all out of focus and color-filtered and what not.


Now, does anyone remember when I brought up "Violaine" back when Cyclone Gita hit Tonga during the Olympics?

Oh, you skipped over that part too? No worries. 

Not for nothing, but I'd maybe think of taking another look at that post, seeing how it connects to the Siren Song festival and what-not.


"Violaine" is the final CT single that I was going on about yesterday. The whole thing with the B-sides on the two different versions corresponding to hurricanes, which I talked about in the Cyclone Gita post.

But who cares, right? A bunch of obscure songs released 22 years ago? STFU about it already, right?



Well, like so many resonant items in the Sibyl's back catalog, "Violaine" is being re-released this year. And by "this year," I mean TODAY, as part of that boxset whose cover art corresponds to the Super-Typhoon that hit Japan mere hours after the Sibyl made a rare public appearance in Soho.

Yeah, those songs I've been ranting on about like a nut are re-released TODAY. As in NOW. 

But what does "Violaine" mean, anyway?



Oh. It means PURPLE.



So that single, whose B-side titles I argue correspond to hurricanes-cyclones-typhoons, actually means "purple?"

OK.

Another of the B-sides is "Alice," which was featured in The Lovely Bones. And as fate would have it a statue of Alice (of Wonderland fame) was just installed in Milwaukee. It's title?

"The Seer."





Oddly enough, we also saw purple skies in February of this year and February of last year. Very interesting times for it. 

Ritually-speaking, I mean. 



Anyway, "Violaine" is the leadoff track on the CT swan-song, Milk & Kisses. Which...yeah. 


The second track is "Serpentskirt," which you're all sick of hearing about by now.


 


But I should mention nonetheless that the town of Mexico Beach seems to be where Michael made landfall. Why is this significant?





Well, one of the reasons is that the local Catholic parish there is Our Lady of Guadalupe, whom....



...many scholars believe is a re-incarnation or revision of Coatlicue, whose name in English actually is...



...Serpent Skirt.

Is this thing on? Can anyone hear me out there?

So Michael and the Serpent? Where have I heard that before?



Oh, that's it.



Say, you don't think there's any connection to this, do you?



OK, two for two. What about "Tishbite," another song we've talked about in the past?




Right, that's another Biblical reference. It was apparently the name Elijah was called during his time.




Elijah, who battled the priests of the Storm God.


Ba'al, who was known as the "Lord of the Sky."


Whose triumphal arch was recently installed in Washington, DC. Who considers themselves "Lord of the Skies" now?



No, sadly. Not high-ranking Fraserfarians M83.


Of course, that's it. The USAF.



Maybe they should rethink that motto. Maybe Ba'al doesn't appreciate the competition.



Or maybe it was the Tishbite, replaying history all over again.


OK, so those scattered few of you who didn't just skip over the Minority Report stuff in yesterday's post, I should add it came to mind because I was looking at my Cyclone Gita post. Plus thinking about The Man in the High Castle and a bunch of other things.


My brains are defective.





Well, not only is there a new Cocteau Twins boxset out today, none other than Samantha "Agathe" Morton is making her debut on Sunday as a major new character on The Walking Dead.




One of the stories on Morton's debut even pictures her playing Elizabeth Fra...er, Agatha.




Last week, The Guardian interviewed Morton and talked about her traumatic upbringing and her run-in with Hurricane Harvey. Which ties her into the highly Frase-jacent #metoo movement.

Oh, there's so much more but my time has run out for today. 

Two quick notes:





Santigold, whose debut album is one of my very favorite records of the past ten years or so, unsurprisingly names the Twins in her Top 12.



Cryptogon links to a CIA document describing pretty much what this entire blog is actually about. And the paper is from 1983, one of the primary "Window Eras" I still need to talk about. Hopefully, I can revisit Stranger Things (the good series) as well.



Speaking of 1983, my favorite Tangerine Dream album was recycled for the Risky Business soundtrack. Speaking of Stranger Things, Exit provided me with my first exposure to the concept of "remote viewing," which I don't believe had been declassified at that point.





It also features this track.




POSTSCRIPT: Because "Purple Haze" is too obvious.

  4. my goodness my goodness.
    So many things...
    was listening to lullabies to Violaine vol 2 as I read this post... on purpose because I did indeed read yesterday’s post of pictures. (iTunes music happens to put vol one and vol two of lullabies first up... most likely because of today’s release but who knows.... I am also so happy you threw in that last clip of 1983 (hands down my favorite and most listened to Jimi track)

    Gonna have to put the full version on now...
    1982 has been everywhere and now it will be ‘83 you say, eh?

    Wish I could remember more from that year. The year the fabric of space and time was ripped open.. but I was only 8...

    Didn’t another commenter talk about the progression of color? And purple was next if I remember correctly. How bout that.

    I barely see what you see, Chris and my head spins from the little bit I can make sense of...

    I’m so thankful you keep on keepin on even though all signs point to apocalyptic nightmarish phil dickian futures the likes no one wants to exist in....

    Question always ends up... what the hell do we do with all this ???

    I try to even come close to explaining the connections and syncs that I’ve learned here to regular people and I’m met with mostly silence and confusion... and then the subject quickly turns to something 2dimensional and easy.

    I’m thankful for you and your blog and all the commenters who help me to feel like I’m not turning into Jeffrey Goines

  6. On the subject of the Olympics I just read this while looking for Michael and purple -

    https://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2016/08/08/what-are-the-purple-dots-on-michael-phelps-cupping-has-an-olympic-moment/

    Olympics trivia: What has 19 gold medals and a bunch of purple circles?
    If you watched a certain swimmer’s Rio Games debut on Sunday night, when he propelled the United States 4×100-meter relay team to a gold medal, you know the answer: Michael Phelps.

    While it may look like Phelps and several other Olympians with those skin marks have been in a bar fight, the telltale dots actually are signs of “cupping,” an ancient Chinese healing practice that is experiencing an Olympic moment.
    “Because this particular recovery modality shows blemishes on his skin, he walks around and looks like a Dalmatian or a really bad tattoo sleeve,” said Keenan Robinson, Phelps’s personal trainer. “It’s just another recovery modality.
    There’s nothing really particularly special about it.”

  10. Chris, Great Blog! I've never commented before but I've followed for years, even before the break you took a few years back. The ties\snycs you pointed out just blow my mind. i have been researching Battlestar Galactica recently, A lot of these syncs are also present in the rebooted BSG series. From the seer in the liquid, to the shapes of the base ships, to the purple haze soundtrack and more. It really is undeniable there are obvious patterns that can be recognized by those that pay attention. Repetition is conditioning and it is right in front of everyone. Keep up the good work and a shout out to toostoned, High weirdness in the Naked Pueblo!

    2. fra p. 291, in afterword of *on What is*:

      the two programmers were in deep discussion about a lost manuscript that that had been found in the basement. Presumably it was printed off by some of the deep machine programmers centuries before when trying to debug a really weird anomaly that was occurring deep in the ancestor simulation codes they were running at the time. There were some notes scribbled on the cover page of this document, which was entitled 'on What is.' The scribbled notes indicated that this was in fact evidence of a type of consciousness leak that they found occurring in the programs. Another note suggested that the deep machine programmers had been told to destroy this evidence, because top-level administrators, you k-now, the purple Cast, continued to claim that it was not possible that the simulated beings in the ancestor simulation codes could ever really be conscious (or possess that divine entity called consciousness), and the divine k-nows, the purple Cast administrators are not to be toyed with. Thus, the deep machine programmers must have been very brave when they decided not to follow those directives.

    3. It reminds me of an old prophecy: “When the Deep Purple falls,
      Over sleepy garden walls,
      And the stars begin to flicker in the sky,
      Thru the mist of a memory
      You wander back to me,
      Breathing my name with a sigh.


      It has to do with reincarnation at twilight. I think.

  12. LET's GO CRAZY! A rainbow appeared over Manhattan right after David Bowie died. And right after Prince died, the sky - appropriately enough - turned purple. From "1999" - "Forgive me if it goes astray / But when I woke up this mornin / Coulda sworn it was judgment day / The sky was all purple, / There were people runnin everywhere
    Tryin 2 run from the destruction,/ you know I didn't even care"

    2. Apologies if someone else has already posted this, but...

      The day Prince died, landmarks all across America were lit up with purple; not as a spur-of-the-moment tribute to the artist, but, as had been planned well in advance, in celebration of Queen Elizabeth's birthday.

      Last month, as Hurricane Florence was painting the skies over the Carolinas (named after King Charles) royal purple, several thousand Prince fans sent a petition to the federal DA for Minnesota, asking that an investigation into Prince's death be opened.

      I recently found an article ( https://interestingengineering.com/the-reason-behind-the-purple-skies-that-appeared-after-hurricane-michael ) that explained how purple skies before, during, or after a hurricane are a perfectly normal thing that's always happened (rather like Fireball Season); the same article speculates that Prince may have been inspired to write "Purple Rain" after seeing such a sky after a hurricane (even though, if I understand correctly, Minnesota hurricanes are rather rare).

      And concerning the orange vs. purple debate, for whatever it's worth, right after Prince's death, Vanity Fair published a commemorative magazine that had as its cover art the Warhol portrait "Orange Prince".

      Hope a few more syncs for the pile are of some use. As always, CLK, keep up the stellar work!

  13. Hi Chris:
    There is a book titled "Urban Spacemen and Wayfaring Strangers: Overlooked Innovators and Eccentric Visionaries of '60s Rock" by Richie Unterberger; it contains some material about Tim Buckley. Mentions that the line in "Song to the Siren" that goes "I'm as puzzled as a newborn baby" was originally "I'm as puzzled as the oyster". He changed the line because fellow singer Judy Henske teased him about it/made fun of it. I found that interesting, ya? So I have been trying to come up to speed on J. Henske. Youtube has a lot of live and in-studio recordings of her. Someone said if Linda Ronstadt was a torch singer, Henske was a flame thrower. I like a lot of traditional music, and feel like a dope that I have not known her name and recognized her musical contributions before. You can tell from some of the Youtube stuff she has/had a wicked sharp sense of humor; maybe she made some pearl jokes to Buckley? Anyway;some of her work just seems to fit with your sync material in my head. Makes you wonder if she had some sort of connection to a similar muse as you have discussed with E. Fraser. Look at these 3 Henske songs with lyrics and recordings available on Youtube or otherwhere on Web:
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wks31pNzu0c Judy Henske & Jerry Yester [ US folk 69 ] - Rapture {W. Lyrics }


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uZsfRZovsJc Judy Henske & Jerry Yester 'Farewell Aldebaran'


    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RtiMlHTKs3Y Judy Henske & Jerry Yester- Lullaby (with lyrics) [1969]

    I like and am creeped out by all three. The "Lullaby" one seems as good while dark as some of the later solo work of Nico. Henske apparently did work in a childcare setting at one time singing lullabyes to kids; hmmm...
    Best to you

    3. From different interviews with E. Fraser:
      "A lot of the stuff I was singing about [in the early 1980's] was all metaphorical. I wasn't talking like I am now. I guess it's back to how much personal power you feel that you have. Like, if I'm 17 and I don't even know when I'm hungry, am I tired, have I had any sleep - if you don't even know that, then how can you talk about lyrics that come from such an unconscious place? I always said 'I dont' know', and I didn't." [Alternative Press, 1995]
      "What they are [pre-Four-Calendar Café lyrics], are words that I've taken from...maybe seen written down...in a language that I don't understand, and liking them...and maybe...making new words as well out of them. I mean I've got reams and reams of words that I don't have a clue what they mean, but...I wanted them because, I knew I'd be able to express myself without giving anything away." [NPR Interview, 1993].
      ,br> "The catch is I can barely talk English, isn't it? I quite like that. Combining words in different languages that I couldn't understand just meant that I could concentrate on the sound and not get caught up in the meaning."

      "...[the dictionary] is how I got some of the words. And then I got to the stage where, I don't know, something just came in. "

  18. I'm wondering if you wonder, Chris, if there is anything more to being a synchromystic other than observation.

    Yes, observation, positioning your perspective amongst these constellating symbols, choosing which areas, themes, and aspects to pay attention to DOES aeffect the composition, but I believe people like you and me have the potential psychic power to pour our will into it, thus strengthening our stance.

    I'm talking about Psionix. SuperTorch knows about it and very effectively puts it into practice, making him thee best popular synchromystic blog out there right now, with you as second, imo. You can see thee evidence of his predictions playing upon his intentions to steer this divine tempest.

    I'm very curious as to what you think of this prospect. Are you content with standing by? Do you not want to join forces with other psions and actually start being proactive? Or would you rather just wait for thee Apocalypse that seems imminent but strangely fleeting?

  20. The first episode of Matthew Weiner's new show "The Romanoffs" was released yesterday, titled "The Violet Hour", complete with a character remembering the day a loved one died and how the skies of Paris turned from blue to violet. The episode's final shot included a window with a purple sky at dusk. Pretty incredible timing.

    Heaven Or Las Vegas has always been one of my favorite albums. I totally dig the Fraser vein of your blog - not skippin' those parts at all!

    I got to talk with Jeff Buckley once before his show at a laundromat/bar in Cincinnati. He was really easy to talk to, a very warm person - gave me a hug before going to get ready to play.

  22. One of Clyde Lewis's recent Ground Zero shows discussed possibility that human communication with ET... might involve sounds; from them; like hums, etc. That some people sometimes observe in their environment. From her own words and also what you have documented about music of E. Fraser; she is very sensitive and attuned to music she hears; and has been moved throughout her life to create her own music in turn, with words often of her own creation. Suggestion: some of her own musical creations were noticed by some form of disembodied intelligence ; that then entered into association with her at some points in her life and affected her art.

    1. Of course. I was going to embed some purple themed vids but it seemed too obvious.

    2. Kind of interesting how many of us filled in the blanks with thoughts of Prince anyway. Perhaps it's conditioning and/or our manifestation of a certain sort of "life after death" in this case. Or not.

      And BTW, nice ending with Jimi as the more natural resolution, CK. Jimi was in many ways part of who Prince became or at least tried to become, imo.

  24. Chris, have you ever thought of having your people talk to her people and you know have a little sit down over tea and shortbread and maybe like interview the one and only herself? I would guess she could make herself available to maybe answer some questions you might have. I know I would absolutely stop everything to read that post if it were to happen. In the realm of possibilities.... its a possibility. I think you should knock on her door and see what happens. or at least ring and run for funs sake.

    1. Oh, I can just picture it now; "Excuse me, Liz, there's a obsessive mental case in America who is convinced you are a prophet of the Lord and were probably possessed by an Archangel or Apollo or somebody for most of your time in the Cocteaus. He thinks your songs are all enocded messages about the Apocalypse. Would you like to sit down and meet with him, one on one?"

    2. Is enocded a spelling error, a Freudian slip, or purposful? Just curious.

  26. Here are some papers that touch on what may be involved with creative types/artists like E. Fraser, in painting, music, math and the natural sciences. Maybe dry going, but some of it might be useful:

    There is mention in more than one source of the Indian mathematician whose life is portrayed in the recent movie "The Man Who Knew Infinity";
    "The Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan who, with almost no formal training, produced insights into the nature of numbers of such profundity that pure mathematicians still work to understand them nearly a century after his death. These moments of genius, came to him as Robert Kanigel explains, “It was the goddess Namagiri, he would tell friends, to whom he owed his mathematical gifts. Namagiri would write the equations on his tongue. Namagiri would bestow mathematical insights in his dreams."

  27. Purple is everywhere ahhhh..

    Check out the new marvel tv show "Titans" first episode, it is loaded with purple, like ridiculously loaded with purple.

    That super ultra popular fortnite game that kids and adults alike are freaking over has this "cube" event thing going on, and the cube is purple, not sure what it's about because i don't play games but the purple is everywhere and influencing the millions of unknowing people that do play it in some way.

    that movie upgraded seems to have a lot of purple/red blue mix lighting going on also.

    purple is driving me nuts, oh geeze i just noticed the comment names are purple lol

  28. an interesting coincidence, the Tokyo Olympics are in 2020.
    The famous anime Akira is set in the year 2019 in a post apocalyptic world readying for the 2020 Olympics and features a massive fight in an empty Olympic stadium.

  32. Update from Jacksonville, FL since these headlines won’t make national news, but since the shooting at the Landing (near Water and Pearl), there has been a ton of drownings. Even today their were multiple stories about multiple drownings.

  33. Chris,

    Deep Purple is currently on the last couple legs of their world tour in support of their 2017 Record 'Infinite'. The record was released on 4/7/17 with an opening track titled 'Time for Bedlam'. The tour has the ominous name 'The Long Goodbye Tour'. They played Charlotte NC 3 days before Florence made landfall in that state.

    And because nothing surprises me anymore, when I checked the track listing for 'Infinite' I found that track #4 on the record is called 'One Night In Vegas'...File this one under 'it never ends'.

  35. A good chunk of ancient Phoenician trade centered around the selling of purple dye. Royal Purple was originally known as "Tyrian Purple", after the city of Tyre:

  36. Those violet skies spooked me so I was curious about the Secret Sun take on it. And now I'm jumping down a purple rabbit hole.
    I immediately thought of the film "Ultaviolet"(2006) with Milla Jovovich. There is also a more recent TV show, "Ultraviolet"(2017-). And a few more with the same title. There is "Violet Evergarden"(2018)film and numerous other violet titles.

    I'm always interested in homonyms. Violane, violet, violence, violin. Spellbinding.

  44. Some inane blather re: Prince's song and hurricane skies. Not a new theory, it was hinted at on a prime-time TV show nearly twenty years ago. For a moment, let's party like it's "1999 BBC Two":
    "When asked if the millennium had any significance for him, Prince replied "All I can say is, that is the sky has blood in it, then blue and red make purple, and I will be In The Light". So, staying indoors, then? [silence]"
