It's a question we all ask ourselves at one time or another: "Exactly how much ultra-high-potency Fraserly symbolism can you possibly stuff into a 90-second teaser trailer?"
Well, Alex GarlandsEvergreen has asked himself that as well. And his answer seems to be "One bloody heck of a lot of ultra-high-potency Fraserly symbolism."
Before we dive into this, let me impart this bit of wisdom from my "Synchromysticism for Fun and Penury" course at the Secret Sun Institute. It will come in handy:
So here is how I tend to classify (and identify) syncs:Level One: Simple CoincidenceLevel Two: Acausal CoincidenceLevel Three: Meaningful Acausal CoincidenceLevel Four: Symbolically-Supercharged Meaningful Acausal CoincidenceLevel Five: A Cascading Series of Symbolically-Supercharged Meaningful Acausal CoincidencesLevel Six: A Cascading Series of Symbolically-Supercharged Meaningful Acausal Coincidences connected to major events in real timeLevel Seven: Elizabeth Fraser
Yes, I'm serious as a jab-induced heart attack about this. I've been wracking my brains for years now trying to think of a phenomenon even a fraction as mind-shredding as this, or as rife with absolute overkill. I mean, in all of recorded history. The only thing even close is in Knowing, a science fiction movie.
A Nic Cage science-fiction movie, granted, but still.
Now, I'm sure you're asking how can such earth-shaking profundity ride the little coattails of a wee Scottish Smurf-lady who was a dream-pop diva back in the days before everything started to totally suck (meaning in the 80s and 90s)?
The answer, of course, is "I don't know." The ways and means of Heaven or Las Vegas are beyond my ken.
I already know your next question: how can an angelic herald be so closely connected with death and disaster? That's an excellent question. In fact, there's actually a book that addresses that very same question in considerable detail. It's called "The Holy Bible."
Give it a read sometime. The last chapter is a real doozy. I think you can even find a PDF or something online if you're low on funds. Do a search on it.
Either way, it seems other folks noticed this strange confluence of power swirling around her, and a lot of them seem to be film directors. David Lynch is the most obvious, but by no means the most obsessive. Gregg Araki takes that cake, but I'm starting to think Alex GarlandsEvergreen has his eye on Araki's throne.
Let's get into it.
But you know that I had to go
Ain't no yellow brick road running through Glasgow
But I found one that's stronger than stone
Ain't no place like home, ain't no place like home
Do you see what I mean now? It never, ever ends. Ever.
February 13, 2018: Alex Garland's highly Frasejacent and Lovecraftian SF film Annihilation premieres the day before reported shooting event at Marjorie (Pearly) Stoneman Douglas HS in Parkland, FL.Film climaxes with Natalie Portman battling her alien doppelgänger, or Twin.Exteriors for Annihilation filmed same exact location that exteriors for "Pearly Dewdrops' Drop" were filmed (Virginia Waters, Windsor Great Park, Surrey).

Divers, please remember the first rule of Frase Club: what happens in Heaven or Las Vegas stays in Heaven or Las Vegas.
