Roses are Red, Violets are Blue, It Never Ends.


Well, it's been nearly a year and a half since Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell died on the Detroit River and there's been a never-ending rollercoaster ride of highly nutritious synchery ever since. And since timing is everything, we keep getting hit over the head with what I like to call the "emerging archetypal dominants" on account of it being the Great Unveiling and all.

So it's only natural that the Apollo Chris Cornell statue was unveiled today, and the festivities were bathed in an eerie glow of Violaine.




Concurrent with that unveiling we have the announcement that the Cornells are suing the late singer's former doctor for over-prescribing Ativan and other drugs to the singer. The suit claims that Cornell was prescribed 940 tabs in the past 20 months. 

To be honest, that doesn't sound like an over-dosing to me, since it averages out to a tab and a half a day. But seeing he was a recovering addict and there were also other barbiturates involved they may have a case. Stay tuned. 

But still; the timing is very interesting in light of everything else popping up these days. Plus the inverse of 049. Chaplets seeing me drugged and all the rest of that jolly rot.



Three days before the Cornell events it was announced that a colloboration between the late Chester Bennington and Mark Morton of extreme metalists Lamb of God will be released.

Lamb of God is an interesting band in that their lead singer had been convicted and then acquitted of manslaughter for the death of a stage-diving fan at a 2012 concert in Prague. And of course the band's name is an ironic appropriation of a title given to Jesus Christ as the Paschal Lamb, or in common parlance, the sacrificial lamb.



And out of absolutely nowhere it was announced that legendary director Terrence Malick (who directed one of my all-time favorite films, Days of Heaven) will be directing a documentary based on Lil Peep, who seems to be the focus of a major canonization campaign all of a sudden.

I can't even wrap my head around what would inspire a legend like Malick to make a film about a short-lived emo rapper but then again, the Sibyl never lies. 

Ever.


Eagle-eyed readers remember that Lil Peep's death was utterly drenched in Siren symbolism and in Sibyl syncs, not the least of which was the fact that he was born on the 12th anniversary of the release of an album whose very first word on the very first song on the first side is "Peep," a word which is repeated several times throughout.

That album was re-released this year on March 16th, which so happens to be the 22nd anniversary of the release of Milk & Kisses, whose first single was "Tishbite," named after the familiar title of the Prophet Elijah.

Lil Peep's middle name was Elijah. March 16th was also a more unhappy 22nd anniversary, as some of you may recall.




That same song was often covered by Jeff "Shepherd Boy" Buckley during his club days and the actor who once portrayed the late singer was named as the star of a new Lifetime series just yesterday.

The announcement was made on account of Jeff Buckley had to be injected into the news cycle somehow. I'm sure you understand.



Earlier in the month, we saw Egyptian-born singer Tamino named as the new Jeff Buckley on account of Osiris and Antinous and the River Nile and the Libyan Sibyl and bla bla bla bla. You know the drill by now.

Note Jeff Jr. here is working with Colin Greenwood of Oxford's Orthodox Fraserfarian pop combo, Radiohead. Because of course he is.




And then of course there's the very big deal being made for some inexplicable reason (hint: the Apocalypse) over our blessed Sibyl touring with Orange Appled Catholic Fraserfarian mentats Massive Attack, for the 21st anniversary (?) of Mezzanine. It turns out they'll be hitting Detroit in March. Where will they be playing?



At the Masonic Temple, of course. Here's a handy map for out-of-towners. 

Tickets for the European dates go on sale November 9th, or 9/11 for our friends across the pond. The tour will kick off at the Hydro in Glasgow. I believe that site was chosen because Revelation 12:15-17.
.


If you can't afford the tickets, you can always pick up a spray bottle of Mezzanine, the first record album to be encoded into DNA. Each spray contains one million Mezzanines. Because the world has gone completely batshit.

A reader kindly reminded us of Ubik, which I'm kicking myself for overlooking. Of course I believe-- rather I know-- that Our Lady is in fact the Sibyl that PKD was sensing the arrival of (hence the "Ysabel" and "Strawberry" business, plus Ubik) and there's not a shred of a whisper of a doubt that the great prophet himself would be even more around the bend and out of his head over the Sibyl's unerring oracles and unparalleled healing powers than even your helpful host here.

You know it, I know it, and unfortunately the Demiurge seems to know it.



THERE IT IS THEN

Now, a lot of people have been asking me about the Whitey Bulger thing and what exactly I thought of it. Hmm, it's a good question. Let's have a look, shall we?




Yep. OK.

There it is then.

In answer to your question, I'm thinking pretty much exactly the same thing you are.



Don't forget this little detail. If you get a chance check out the Netflix documentary on Whitey. Quite an eye-opener. Especially the part where the witness gets iced during the filming.




Speaking of MK Ultra. Which psychiatrists are those, Vox? The good folks from the Ewen Cameron Institute? Vox gives me mind cancer so I haven't a clue myself.



Here's a story for you-  the remains of a girl missing since 1983 is believed to have been found at the Vatican's Rome Embassy. Why does this remind me so much of the Khashoggi business?

PS: Emanuela Orlandi roughly translates into the "Famous Land of Christ." Which ironically describes the Vatican for some. Not me, but some.


But it turns out it might be another teenage girl missing from the same time. Hmm, why can't I shake the feeling that Saint Malachy was right on the money? Not to mention Malachi Martin.

PS: A reader notes that Gregori is roughly similar to the Grigori, or Watchers. Miracle of the Watchers, perhaps?



And then there's this bizarre story, speaking of that same Khashoggi business. And another two teenaged girls Twinned in tragic death. And this one on the (Katy) Hudson River, no less. Not sure exactly where yet.

I guess they duct-taped their own hands together. It happens. I mean, hey; people shoot themselves multiple times in the head and stuff their own dead bodies in gym bags, right? Life is a rich and diverse tapestry of weird and unusual events. And so is death.

IT TAKES A VILLAGE TO BUILD THE APOCALYPSE


No.


In a related story, donut-making is a lightning rod at Krispy Kreme. Details after the game.





Excellent idea, James Cameron. "An oath" will definitely take care of that killer robot problem. For sure. If not, try getting restraining orders on the killer robots.

I admit I got confused when I first saw that headline, seeing how Harlan Ellison had died a while back.



Speaking of robophobes, Bene Frasserit/Elon Musk FB Grimes is teaming up with UK metal superstars Bring Me the Horizon for their next album. And you try to tell me it's not the Apocalypse.



Speaking of metal bands I had no idea still existed, there's also this ugly business with Manowar axeman Karl Logan... 




...and this Siren-adjacent tragedy with All that Remains guitar-slinger Oli Herbert. If there are any further Sirenic or Sunly connections with this band I need to know about, let me know in the comments.

SPACELY SHENANIGANS




OK, everyone who ever said Richard C. Hoagland is talking out his hat vis a vis NASA ritualism, soldier up now and apologize. You'll feel better afterward, I promise.




That's the one pointing in the direction of Lyra and the Vegas, so there's probably some subtext I'm too lazy to parse here.




It doesn't surprise me at all that The First Man bombed at the box office. Science fiction really isn't that popular anymore.




My eyesight is shot from all the blue light but I could have sworn that said "an average of $666." Maybe that's the idea. By the way, is it my imagination or is that Moon extremely flat? What exactly is Flo trying to tell us here? 

Flat Moonism- get in on the ground floor. 



Speaking of 1983, a cheerleader for the Cylon Francisco 4:9ers kneeled at a recent game. What does this have to do with the wonderful world of Secret Sunnery?

Oh, everything, my good friends.

Everything.



Well, your pal and mine Tracy R. Twyman compared the taking a knee phenomenon to the act of genuflection, right? You remember that.



And the 4:9er cheerleaders are called the Gold Rush, right? 

Oh, please tell me you know where this is headed...


... because it's headed to "In the Gold Dust Rush, I only genuflect." Well, aside from the garlands and chaplets. They're just a gimme.

And oh, guess what? The Gold Dust were founded the same year you-know-what-band was formed. 

And the current incarnation of the Gold Rush were founded the same year "In the Gold Dust Rush" was released. 

Gotta love those syncs, Louie. Or at least I hope you do, seeing as how they never, ever end.

Bonus syncs: the 4:9ers first game of the 1983 season was exactly 35 years before a certain Pythia made a rather-momentous surprise appearance in London. The day before "The Gold Dust Rush" was released, the 4:9ers lost to the New York Jets.

  4. They really really wanted lil peep to be the next cobain but his music sucked massive ass and he died way too early and before he could actually blow up in the mainstream. When he died he was basically another irrelevant sound cloud rapper that was being forced viral marketed on 4chans music board and other places. Cobain not only changed rock music but pop music itself. Peep was a fucking nobody they were setting up to be bigger but he died before that could even happen. Its obvious with the documentary they are trying to retcon him into being bigger and more influential even though when peep died 95% of the world said "who"?

  5. Neil Young: ""I'm not sure that everything I write is mine," he has claimed. "I think some of it just comes through me. Writing is not like thinking: thinking involves logic, and when I'm writing a song, I try not to judge what I'm doing until I'm finished. I try to be open and follow the muse wherever it goes. And if it's not around, I don't push it. There's no sense in trying to fan a flame if there's no flame."

    2. @Anon1218: I think you and CLK might be agreeing, in different words. To speak with all the expertise of a songwriter whose biggest hit was this one song that was really popular for a couple weeks at a couple bars in a midsized Appalachian town, and that got the band that sang it, like, *dozens* of views on their YouTube channel...

      Sometimes you write the song. You know what you want to say and you know how you want to say it, and you find yourself counting syllables to make sure a line fits the beat, and asking questions like, "What rhymes with 'Road'? 'Toad'? Lord, no! Wait-'Load'! That'll work!"

      Other times, the song's already there, and the songwriter's job is just to be quiet and *listen*, and get the words down on paper while you can still make them out, and communicate the music while you can still hear it (I've had a song hit me in the middle of the night, and I've had to try to *draw* out the drum line, since I've got no clue what notation (if any) drummers use).

      And it's something I've wondered, when a song's just floated by in the ether, close enough for me to hear and copy down: who wrote that, and *why*? Cause some have just been songs. Some have been really great songs, and I hope the musician I gave it to moves to Nashville and gets all over the radio; and some have been so thoroughly black that I've copied it down, and stuck it in a drawer, cause I don't want to be responsible for it ever being performed.

      So it's still something to ponder: whether you call it channeling or say that the artist is just tuning in to something that's already been written...who wrote it? And *why*?

      (At least, those are the questions I ask. Salt available in quantity on request!)

    1. I am reminded of this quote from Tom Waites:

      I think everybody’s looking for something they’ve never seen before. You work on your songs, but your songs also work on you. So you absorb and you excrete and in some way you retain, and slowly you start to become some place that songs are passing through. I’d like to think that they enjoy blowing through you. There’s something electric about you, maybe, some kind of a force left behind by music that passes through you. Like everybody likes to be around someone who does something well and loves doing it, so songs would be no different, right? Like, ‘Let’s blow down and see that guy.“

  8. Personal synch here as Soundgarden, I just learned, is linked to this MC5 revival show that two people mentioned to me recently:

    "Kramer has assembled a crew of ace players with their own debt to the explosive sound that emerged from Detroit half a century ago: guitarist Kim Thayil (Soundgarden), vocalist Marcus Durant (Zen Guerilla), bassist Billy Gould (Faith No More) and drummer Brendan Canty (Fugazi). At Saint Andrew’s, the rhythm section got bolstered by the addition of drummer Matt Cameron (Soundgarden, Pearl Jam)"

    Neil Young had a Detroit connection around the MC5 days as well.

Wayne has also been playing Johnny Thunders tributes the last few years... and now there is Generation Sex with Billy Idol and Jonsie et. al.

    "An unknown number of Detroiters have gone to the river for that final baptism, seeking release in a manner that remains one of the most difficult and agonizing ways to die.

    What draws them there? Perhaps the way it's alive with mythology and metaphor, calling to mind the river Styx. Even as our frontier settlement darkened and spread into a city, the river represented that last bit of unconquerable wilderness, with its preternatural character, always moving, always remaining, flowing somewhere while going nowhere.

    Or maybe it's just that, time and again, so many people have run out of options in our fate-battered metropolis. Lacking the pills or pistols to ease the way, they are drawn to the last thing nobody can shut off, the Detroit River, giver — and taker — of life."

Modern doctors agree that there was no way he could have died from a sucker punch (the alleged reason for his "injury"), as such could not possibly have injured his appendix, it's biologically impossible. Houdini was, undoubtedly, an intelligence asset and used his "escape artist" career as cover. His escape artist career was very likely kicked off by intelligence operative connections in the first place.

About Belle Isle in the Detroit River: "According to Charles Skinner, a 19th century folklorist who published anthologies, Native Americans said that a god kept his most beautiful daughter in a boat in the Detroit River, but after the winds fought for possession of the girl, he moved her to Belle Isle — known as “Rattlesnake Island” and then “Hog Island” before attracting the more lyrical soubriquet “Belle” — and placed a ring of rattlesnakes around the boat to discourage further wind action.
    The aforementioned Snake God, a natural stone idol worshipped by the Michigan Indians, was reportedly destroyed by French priests in 1760, smashed and thrown into the river where, like a Transformer, it recombined into a giant snake to protect the Native American against the white man."

    1. @Maria Rigel: that's a great question; and one I've spent a few spare moments pondering: feel free to let me know if you think any of these have merit.

      (For the benefit of, um, any non-Secret-Sunners reading this: all this is just a thought-experiment amongst science geeks.)

      First off: it shouldn't be too difficult to rig up capacitors in series, discharging simultaneously, aimed via a standard antenna dish, that would create enough EMP to fry a drone's electronics (for anybody thinking of trying this at home: *careful* now, lest you find yourself replacing all the wiring/electronics in your (or your neighbor's!) house).

      A little more low-tech: anything that would spread moderately adhesive chaff at altitude should clog the rotors enough to bring them down. For that matter, ordinary *dust*, at altitude, show lower the aerodynamics of the rotors enough to do the trick. And in freezing weather, something as simple as fog would bring a small drone down under the weight of the rime.

      Of course, if it really came down to it, since these things are radio-controlled, any of the standard RF-jamming techniques should be enough to make them inoperable. Good place to start would be looking at the ways the USSR used to jam Radio Free Europe.

      Hope this is a little food for thought, or at least cause for a good laugh! Cheers.

  14. Just a few more syncs for the pile...concerning the Tamino/Jeff Buckley comparison: Tamino decided to call his debut album 'Amir', which, as a given name, or a title (it just means 'leader', and can refer to a leader of any rank, from Emperor down to the guy in charge of a Boy Scout troop), is so extremely common that investigating it led nowhere (or, rather, *everywhere*, which in the synch world is the same). But when you look at 'Amir' as a place name, things get much more interesting...

    Turns out there are only a handful of places in the world called Amir: almost all of them are tiny villages in Iran and Azerbaijan (very minor synch to the Iranian woman, of Azerbaijani origin, who was part of the psyop that set the backdrop to the Great Social Media Purge of 2018). The only other place I could find with the name is a Kibbutz Amir in far northern Israel, near Mount Hermon, in what seems to be an extremely numinous area, since Hermon has been held to be the place the Watchers landed after their Fall, and the location of Christ's Transfiguration, and the area around the kibbutz has, over the millenia, hosted temples to various iterations of Ba'al, to Gad (native Semitic god of luck), to Pan, to Hermes, a church dedicated to St. George, and today has a domed shrine dedicated to my namesake, the prophet Khadir (for anyone researching it further: in the Middle East, the prophet's name is generally written as 'Khidr'). It might also be significant that two different groups of modern Gnostics, the Druze and the Alawi Muslims, have settlements there. And the shrine is still held sacred by both Gnostic groups, both Shia and Sunni Muslims, and the area's few Christians (who identify Khadir with St. George).

    Khadir/Khidr synchs with Osiris, in that Osiris had "the Green Man" as one of his titles, and was pictured with green skin; "Khadir" literally means "the Green Man", and is always pictured dressed entirely in green. Both figure in stories of death and resurrection. The veneration of Prophet Khadir is universal in the Muslim world, and has even spread to the Hindus of India, where he is worshipped, bafflingly, as the god of rivers.

    In Muslim folklore, the erstwhile river god Khadir is often accompanied by Dhul-Qarnain (a rather shadowy Quranic figure who might be a folk memory of Cyrus the Great), whose name means "He of the Horns"; minor synch with Chris Cornell, whose surname could also be translated as "of the horns", and who died on the banks of the Detroit River.

    Anyway, hopefully, a few more syncs are useful, or at least entertaining. As always, CLK, keep up the stellar work.

    There is the true Lucifer, true Christ and the false one, Anti-Christ. There are also people who embody the qualities of each. Noah is considered a type of Christ, prefiguring the true Christ, Jesus.

    Nebuchadnezzar, the king the book of Isaiah ironically refers to as Lucifer, is a type of anti-Christ. He has the mark of the beast, 666 (see the Golden Image in Daniel 3).

    Best not to confuse the two. Use the correct source of enlightenment.

    "And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light."

    1. Satan wouldn't disguise himself as an angel of Light if angels of Light weren't worth impersonating. The problem with Lucifer babble in conspiracy circles is that it poisons attitudes towards the True Light.

    1. I met angry a few times, having lived on the Northern Beaches for quite a few years, mutual people and all that. I'm a tiny woman, he didn't stand much taller than me! Bloody good guy. My heart goes out to him. What a way to lose a son. When I lived there the Northern Beaches were pretty rough. I believe Manly was one of the first in Sydney to implement lock down laws for pubs because too many people were being beaten to death. This sounds like something different, though?

  19. Apologies for clogging up the comments section, but just had to share a few syncs (or maybe ontologicaly paranoid numerology and symbolism) concerning the OSIRIS-REx mission..

    Bennu is a Buckley/Cornell Class...sorry, an *Apollo* Class asteroid (one of exactly 1133 catalogue Apollo asteroids). It was named after the Egyptian deity Bennu, who had the form of a heron, and who seemed to be an avatar of Atum, the first god to arise from the primeval water. (A 69-foot obelisk dedicated to Atum still stands in Heliopolis.)

    Technically known as 101995 Bennu, it was discovered on 9/11/1999. The King Osiris probe was launched almost exactly 17 years later, and arrived at Bennu just over 19 years later. And the King Osiris probe is a sample return mission.

    Turns out Bennu has some odd physical properties. For instance, its thermal inertia varies by 19%. And even though it's pretty much just a big rock, it only has the density of water. Also: the surface of Bennu appears pretty much featureless and smooth...with the exception of one 60-odd foot obelisk- I mean, *boulder*; which is even more impressive when you consider that the whole asteroid is not quite one-third of a mile across.

    Being a sample-return mission, King Osiris is coming back in 2023, and bringing Bennu with him. Of course, you'd have to be pretty ontologicaly paranoid to look at 2023 and find 322, the numerical insignia of the Skull and Bones Society. I mean, it's true that a secret society with no more than 500 living members has produced a president, uncounted senators and congressmen, and a crowd of captains of industry and of the press; but to get their insignia worked into a NASA mission? Now *that's* crazy.

    Fun Fact: it's a matter of historical record that the Bonesmen chose 322 as their insignia because in 322B.C., after an intense period of civil unrest, the famed Athenian democracy collapsed, and was replaced by an Oligarchy composed of only the wealthiest citizens.

    Thank God that nothing like that could ever happen in America. And we should all be glad that we don't have a space agency that right this minute is performing a ritual Working to bring such a thing about.

    1. On the subject of 322, I once saw a doco on Isaac Newton where they showed one of his alchemical manuscripts, and i noted a prominent 322 on a diagram of Leo. Perhaps more interestingly, it is the 12th Lucas number, a companion sequence to the Fibonacci sequence, which are magic numbers if any are. A very significant minority of all flowering plants (the Asteraceae, the "sunflower family) have a Fibonacci number of petals, and they show up in many other spirals in nature. 322=377-55=L12=F14-F10. -dan

  20. First US Date is at the Wang Theater Boston, MA ,Chris. I've never been a fan other than the Twin Peaks Soundtrack, but I'm going to try and get a ticket just to see what all the hullabaloo is about. Also, the spray can isn't just a reference to Phillip K. Dick. The lead singer is Bansky, right? Isn't that the top theory?

    1. With the price of tickets these days it's a bit tricky just to check out a band to see what it's all about. The consensus seems to favor DNA being Bansky, but opinions vary.

  21. 10/7/18- The day of the Chris Cornell statue unveiling also unsurprisingly happens to be The FEAST of OUR LADY of the ROSARY, formerly known as the FEAST of Our Lady of Victory and Feast of the Holy Rosary... just as Elizabeth eloquently proclaimed.

    2. Greetings Chris,
      I don’t know if I’m the only deadhead that follows your excellent synchromystic review, but I do have the one track mind that comes with the territory. It occurred to me recently that so called ‘best Grateful Dead show’ is Cornell ‘77.
      This show was performed in May and the official cd release was May 2017.
      Keep up the good work.
      Cheers,
      ——AK

    3. Oh, I have a number of Deadheads in the fold, AK. I've listened to far more than my fair share of Dead shows myself. I'll have to check out this gig, though I'm guess I've heard it already.
