The Man Who Lies is No More

The world lost one of the most innovative, and perhaps complicated artistic minds in recent history with the passing of noted novelist, and filmmaker Alain Robbe-Grillet last week in France at the age of 85. Known by many as the father of the nouveau roman (new novel), he is perhaps best known as the Screenwriter of Alain Renais' 1961 film "Last Year at Marienbad". He had become an esteemed member of the Acad'emie francaise in 2004.

I was lucky enough to have studied both the writing and films of M. Robbe-Grillet during a semester (1992) intensive course taught by two Robbe-Grillet scholars, Mr. Roch Smith and Anthony Fragola while an undergraduate at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Robbe-Grillet himself had been a lecturer in residence at the university in the Fall of 1987.

I have been entranced, challenged, and inspired by his work ever since...forever the trickster.

"Last Year at Marienbad"

Um Houston, We have a Problem.

Did Jack the Ripper design the Rockets logo?

The world of sports has offered us some amazing syncs over the past several months, and yesterday was no exception as the 7'6" Chinese Giant, Yao Ming (#11) suffered a stress fracture in his left foot. The injury will cause him to miss the remainder of the NBA season, and could quite likely keep him sidelined during his home countries summer spotlight, hosting the Olympic Games later this year. Yao is China's biggest and brightest star...

The Rockets facing heartbreak?

Yao stars at the center position for the Houston ROCKETS, who had been surging of late; winning 12 in a row while adding their 13th straight victory last night without Yao's services. Heartbreaking to say the least...

Rocketman Roger Clemens back in his Houston ASTROS days

Another ROCKET resonator, MLB pitcher Roger "The Rocket" Clemens (#22) is back in hot water again today as well:

the New York Times reported that the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee may (JUST NOW AP CONFIRMS THAT THEY WILL) refer Clemens to the Justice Department to investigate whether he perjured himself at their hearings Feb. 13. Hardin had prepared for that possibility since former Senator George Mitchell released a report Dec. 13 with trainer Brian McNamee claiming he injected Clemens with steroids and Human Growth Hormone multiple times since 1998.

Under the Double Eagle

Wednesday (Feb. 20th) afternoon two F-15C EAGLES collided mid-air over the Gulf of Mexico during a "training" exercise some 77 miles from their departure point at Eglin Air Force Base (note: the pilots affiliated with this squadron are referred to as "The Gorillas"). The F-15 has had numerous malfunctions and accidents over the past year, and were grounded by the Air Force for a period of time late last year.

Another interesting sync with events from later the same evening...The F-15A EAGLE was once used to shoot down a satellite :

Double F-15C Eagles

From January 1984 to September 1986, an F-15A was used as a launch platform for five ASM-135 anti-satellite (ASAT) missiles. The F-15A went into a Mach 1.22, 3.8 g climb of 65° and released the ASAT missile at an altitude of 38,100 feet (11.6 km). The F-15A computer was updated to control the zoom-climb and missile release. The third test flight involved a retired communications satellite in a 345 statute mile (555 km) orbit, which was successfully destroyed by sheer kinetic energy. The pilot, USAF Major Wilbert D. "Doug" Pearson, became the only pilot to destroy a satellite.

The ASAT missile was designed to be a standoff anti-satellite weapon, with the F-15A acting as a first stage. The Soviet Union could interpret a U.S. rocket launch with a spy satellite loss, but an F-15 carrying an ASAT would blend in among hundreds of F-15 flights.

Some 26 minutes after the Moon, Lord of the Rings (Saturn), HEART of Leo (Regulus) alignment was taking place at approx. 10:00 pm EST (which, if you were lucky enough to see; was truly breathtaking), the U.S. Navy fired at and successfully fragmented the bus sized spy satellite, which was inoperable and carrying a payload of "toxic" fuel. At a total speculated cost of $30 million, one wonders about the "official" explanation regarding the U.S.'s concern for human life given the HIGHLY magickal atmosphere at the time of the operation. One which seems to have been awaiting the arrival of US Defense Secretary Robert Gates in order to officially give the command to "fire".

U.S. embassy on Fire in Belgrade

Less than 24 hours and chaos in Kosovo, as Serbian protesters (approx. 150,000 strong) rioted, setting fire to the U.S. Embassy in Belgrade (also attacked were the Croatian, British, Turkish, and Bosnian). Images of the Albanian flag have captured headlines from Kosovo since this past Sunday, when Pro-Independence supporters took up the DOUBLE EAGLE as their banner.

More than happy to live under the shadow of the Double Eagle?

We see the heartbreaker/piercing/Deep Impact effect in full force recently. Two sided opposition...division, two sides of the same bloody coin.

The Hellbound Heart

Should it really have come as any surprise that plans are in the works for a retooled version of the original Hellraiser movie franchise? Thats right, the 1987 film based on the Clive Barker novella The Hellbound Heart is getting a face lift, and it was announced this weekend that the writers of Saw IV & V (Marcus Dunston and Patrick Melton) will be providing the script.

It is important to remember that as we entered the new year, scientists in the United States were re-animating the hearts of dead rats (as we passed into the lunar Year of the Rat on Feb. 7th) which led to the creation of entirely new rat hearts. Anyone familiar with the Hellraiser mythos can see the similarities here...for those not quite sure, I'd suggest watching.


I mention this in the wake of nearly a months worth of Heartbreakers...the death of Heath Ledger, the double whammy which was the Super Bowl (the Patriots loss and Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers halftime reunion), and now the horror of the new Valentine's Day Massacre at Northern Illinois University. Researcher Goro Adachi continues to unlock these connections on an almost daily basis, as we will continue this Heart-breaking with the possible Wednesday [Feb. 20th] shooting down of the crippled U.S. spy satellite...

A lunar eclipse will also take place later this which is said to mirror the one that saved Christopher Columbus and his crew in 1504. Odd that this would coincide with the end of the current shuttle mission involving Atlantis and the Columbus Space Lab.

Friday, February 15th 2008 ABC television's "20/20" investigative news show featured a creepy expose' on the hugely popular "Bodies" exhibits that have been circulating the globe via two separate production companies. According to "20/20" the Hellraiser-ish art/educational sideshow has been receiving it's cadavers from less than reputable sources from China, and there is credible enough evidence to suggest that some of the bodies could have been those of unidentified political prisoners whom had been executed.

Death as Art?

As more information begins to surface about Steven Kazmierczak, the NIU shooter, a few details are of note here at The Looking Glass:

1) He briefly served in the U.S. Army and was discharged for undisclosed reasons (he claimed to his godfather recently that it had been for psychiatric reasons. 2) In his not so distant past he had flirted with Satanism and White Supremists Groups . 3) He had received three tattoos in the past six months, a pentagram, a skull with a sword through it, and the Jigsaw character from the "Saw" films riding a tricycle with bloody suicide scars in the background.

Kazmierczak's fresh "mark"

Back on November 7th, 2007 the shooter (Pekka-Eric Auvinen) in the Jokela High School massacre in Finland had cited the "Saw" films as essential viewing [see his Manifesto here]. Anyone willing to take the time to read this will most likely relate to much of what he is saying, and yet he takes his entire belief system to such an extreme as to see himself as GOD, and therefore rightly able to serve as both judge and executioner. A twisted combination of truth and naive understanding of the New World Order? Misplaced aggression, frustration with the human condition...we have not seen the end.

Writer and researcher Loren Coleman has done some really excellent work in regards to all of the cases related. THE COPYCAT EFFECT

Hexagon Sun

Thanks to Vapo for this little ditty. The two man Scottish downtempo ambient act known as Boards of Canada released this song entitled "Aquarius" from it's album Music has the Right to Children back in 1998. Given the current state of ORANGE we appear to be experiencing, I'd say they were on to something 10 years ago.

33=Orange 23=Yeah thats right

"I do actually believe that there are powers in music that are almost supernatural. I think you actually manipulate people with music, and that is definitely what we are trying to do. People go on about hypnotizing people with music, or subliminal messages and we have dabbled in that intentionally. Sometimes that's just a bit of a private joke, just to see what we can sneak into the tracks." -- Marcus Eoin

Marcus and Michael have both expressed a strong interest in the power of subliminal messaging and their work is full of cryptic messages, including references to David Koresh and the Branch Davidians and numerology amongst others.

The Saturn Hexagon on the North Pole from Cassini

Boards of Canada have been linked to a Scottish music collective known as Hexagon Sun...The existence of Hexagon Sun and oblique references to it in interviews, web sites and album packaging have contributed to what many people regard as the mythological aura surrounding Boards of Canada. Opinions on this subject differ greatly; some people regard Hexagon Sun as a mysterious cult, while others believe that it is simply a title for the band's recording studio. It is believed that Hexagon Sun have held parties in the past, which may be how the collective originally formed. These get-togethers were soon known as "Redmoon" events after one of their parties was during the presence of a red-colored Moon.

Ring any bells? A lunar eclipse this evening should produce a Red Moon.

Quantum Quest: A Cassini Space Odyssey (previously known as 2004: A Light Knight's Odyssey) is an upcoming animated sci-fi film, slated to be released on December 18, 2009. It stars Christian Slater, John Travolta, Samuel L. Jackson, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Michael York, and James Earl Jones.

The End of America

Author and third-wave feminist Naomi Wolf spoke late last year in support of her Sept. 2007 book entitled "The End of America: A Letter of warning to a young Patriot" on the 10 Steps of Fascism, and how the United States has been moving through them. This is a pretty mainstream approach but certainly right on the money. And although I find Ms. Wolf to be naive given that she really only seems to point fingers at neo-con/right wing of America, and that she clings to a democracy that really never belonged to us in the first place; it does show that more and more people might be awakening to the larger agenda. Bravo! Worth a watch at 47 mins.

  1. Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy.
  2. Create secret prisons where torture takes place.
  3. Develop a thug caste or paramilitary force not answerable to citizens.
  4. Set up an internal surveillance system.
  5. Harass citizens' groups.
  6. Engage in arbitrary detention and release.
  7. Target key individuals.
  8. Control the press.
  9. Declare all dissent to be treason.
  10. Suspend the rule of law.

Happiness is a Warm Sun

If you haven't already noticed the month of February, 2008 has turned into one VERY interesting Beatles ritual. Fellow researcher Christopher Knowles saw the light in his article from Feb. 12th entitled "Ritual Drama: The Beatles and the Sun"

1) Feb. 1st, 2008: The "Hard Day's Night" Hotel opens in Liverpool.

2) Feb. 4th, 2008: NASA transmits the Beatles "Across the Universe" into outer space. Which contains the repeating message Jai guru deva om (loosely translated from Sanskrit as "hail to the divine guru") as it's chorus.

3) Feb. 5th, 2008: Director Julie Taymor's (a woman with a HIGHLY interesting resume', and KING fetish) Beatles musical "Across the Universe" is released on DVD in the U.S.

4) Feb. 5th, 2008: Former Beatles guru and inspiration for the song "Across the Universe", the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi dies at his home in the Netherlands; alert and in full yoga posture.

5) Feb. 9th, 2008: At the memorial service in Australia for the late Heath Ledger some interesting connections resonate...

The service also featured a video tribute to the star, including footage from home movies, his films and photos of his daughter, Matilda, set to “Happily Ever After in Your Eyes,” a song Ledger’s business partner, Ben Harper, wrote for the two-year-old girl. Other songs played during the service included Bob Dylan’s “The Times They Are a-Changin,” the Beatles’ “Here Comes the Sun,” Powderfinger's “These Days,” Pink Floyd's “Wish You Were Here” and the White Stripes “Seven Nation Army.”

During the private service, Williams read Shakespeare's Sonnet 18, which begins "Shall I compare thee to a summer's day," reports E! News.

The small group then joined approximately 200 mourners who were gathered for a wake at a waterfront restaurant at Perth’s Cottesloe Beach, a surfing resort. As the sun was beginning to set over the Indian Ocean, about 50 people ran laughing and cheering into the water, some stripping to their underwear, others – like Williams – jumping in fully clothed.

After the spontaneous dip, the group linked arms and stood in silence, watching the sun set. Someone in the group shouted: "The sun goes down on our love, but it will never go down on our Heathy.”

The Circus of the Sun

6) Feb. 10th, 2008. The 50th Annual Grammy Awards pays tribute to The Beatles with a combination of performers from Cirque du Soleil's Beatle inspired "Love" show, cast members from the above mentioned film "Across the Universe".

7)Feb. 11th, 2008. Sir Paul McCartney and estranged wife Heather Mills return to court for their ongoing divorce settlement.

Rats in an Orange Cage

"Bullet with Butterfly Wings" Smashing Pumpkins [ORANGE] one of many songs banned from Clear Channel Radio stations after 9/11

Things are truly turning ugly out there...and while the political elite parade back and forth across the country attempting to scam us all into believing in their used car brand of the American Dream, the amount of people taking the law into their own hands or merely settling grievances with guns seems to be on a dramatic it any wonder? Even an animal with it's back against a wall will fight to it's own death. If you don't think that an increase in violent outbursts won't bring about a police state, you've got another thing coming...

Man plans mass shooting at Super Bowl in Phoenix

"No one destroys my dream" stated Kurt William Havelock, the man who had planned on shooting masses of innocent people during the Super Bowl but later turned himself in after he could not go through with his plan. Mr. Havelock had been having trouble with local officials while attempting to obtain the "proper" licenses for his Halloween themed bar.

St. Louis , Missouri named for King Louis IX of France , known as the "Gateway to the West" or the more aptly named "Mound City" as it was constructed mainly on the the burial grounds of Native American Indians which were extremely common to the area.

Then there was this breaking story...a woman in Baton Rogue (Red Stick), Louisiana shots two women and then herself inside a classroom at Louisiana Technical College. No other details available yet, although the LOUIS connection is likely important, and not too far off from Louis XIV, the Sun King.

The Sun King

Jake Kotze's Thoth resonating gorilla is the mascot of the Phoenix Suns. He even travels through Stargates from the look of things.

Phoenix is really turning up the heat right now...Just when you thought things couldn't get more obvious, they have. And just when you'd hoped that I'd be done finding sports related syncs, I haven't.

In a week that saw a Super Bowl Miracle in the Valley of the Sun, a Holmes alignment as golfer JB Holmes won a "sudden-death" victory in the desert, and the resurrection of Arizona Senator John McCain's Presidential aspirations, now the NBA's Phoenix Suns have made a trade for one of the sports most legendary giants; in the form of Superman himself, Shaquille O'Neal. The aging [Shaq, born in 1972 THE YEAR OF THE RAT which is marked today the Lunar New Year 2008] 4 time champion was dealt to Phoenix from the Miami Heat on Wednesday for Shawn Marion (known as Matrix), and bench warmer Marcus Banks.

Shaq starred in the 1997 flop "Steel" a spin off from the D.C. Comic of the same name, which was part of the Superman Universe.

O'Neal will be leaving behind teammate Dwayne Wade (aka "Flash"/ another Thoth resonator) with whom he won a championship in 2006. The trade also sees Shaq moving from a last place team to a first place one, placing both he and the Suns in direct line for a POSSIBLE showdown with a resurgent Boston Celtic franchise in the NBA Finals. The significance of this match-up is that Boston could be seeing each of it's professional teams in the three major sports playing for a championship during the 2007-2008 season.

The Sun King has arrived in Phoenix to bring a championship to a franchise about to enter it's 40th season without one...Rise Phoenix, Rise's everywhere.

The prized green variety of Garnet is the Demantoid

The question is...would the 7ft. 1in, 325 lbs Man of Steel be able to hold up against the Green Kryptonite resonating glow of those Celtic uniforms?

***As a side note: Today is the scheduled launch of Space Shuttle Atlantis STS-122 (122=5), Shaq's number 32 (5), KG's number 5 which brings us back to Feb. 5th or Super fat Tuesday...or a 5th NBA Championship for O'Neal?...just something for the numbers guys to ponder for me.

Joker's Wild: Part II

"Mr. Heath Ledger died as the result of acute intoxication by the combined effects of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam, and doxylamine," the office said in a short statement.

"We have concluded that the manner of death is accident, resulting from the abuse of prescription medications."

This is the OFFICIAL statement based upon the toxicology report on Heath Ledger which was just now released (the findings were supposed to be released yesterday but were postponed). That's quite a cocktail (or cock-tale depending on your point of view)...personally, I never expected much more than a straight-forward drug related cause of death but I am convinced there is more to this story than we'll ever truly know.

Heath expresses himself to the paparazzi 2006

Some interesting developments over the past week are worth noting however. Towards the end of the day on Friday, February 1st former fiancee' Michelle Williams finally made a public statement about the death of her daughter's father saying "My HEART is BROKEN"...". This comment (not unlike the Jack Nicholson one) could be viewed in a couple of ways after unconfirmed reports of cocaine and heroin addiction had led to the split between the two Hollywood stars. Also, it was only two days later that Tom Petty and the HEARTBREAKERS dusted themselves off to participate in the traditional Super Bowl Halftime sex ritual...three of the four songs performed by Petty and the Heartbreakers that evening were from the album "Full Moon Fever"...January 22nd, 2008 was the first full moon of the year, and the day that Heath Ledger passed away. For more on the halftime ritual see Concrete Junkyards post "Super Bowl 42/Tom Petty update"

One story which hasn't received much play but I also find interesting is one that deals with an individual who had been posing as Heath's father Kim Ledger. It seems that the person responsible is either quite CRAFTY, well connected or BOTH; as he was able to obtain the direct phone numbers of multiple A-List celebrities in order to perpetrate his supposed "scam". Two of the names, whom had almost immediately been contacted by the hoaxer as news broke of Mr. Ledger's passing struck me as unusual...Tom Cruise and John Travolta. Their connections to Heath Ledger?, unknown...their connection to one another?; they are both HIGHLY visible Scientologists. PLEASE take a look at the story below...I believe the details of Heath Ledger's death are buried somewhere between the lines. Was this a "so-called" hoax or a well organized counterstrike in the actual WAR that is underway between Scientology and the generic ANONYMOUS?

Travolta's best "Vince Vega" with Lady Di at the White House circa 1985; author Andrew Morton was a confidant of the deceased Princess.

I know it's often difficult for many people to even remember what day it is, and news stories seem to fade into oblivion after a day or two...but for the awoken, let's refresh ourselves and think back over the weeks leading up to, and after Heath's supposed "accident". Consider the timing of these events.

Jonathan Couton's (oddly all traces of this image or references to this person have disappeared from the internet) vision of Tom Cruise as The Joker

Andrew Morton's book (released between Jan. 14-18) Tom Cruise: An Unauthorized Biography is released. In the book, Mr. Morton suggests that Tom Cruise is second in command of The Church of Scientology...among other things.

On January 16th a 9-min. segment from a 2004 Organizational video of Tom Cruise discussing Scientology "leaked" onto the internet causing COS to file copyright lawsuits.

Then this on January 24th, 2008 [source:]

UPDATE: Google representatives informed CNET on Thursday that this "internal issue with Google Translate" has been fixed.

Gawker has unearthed a rather odd bug in the Google Translate software: its English-to-Spanish translator converts the name of the actor Heath Ledger, who died tragically on Tuesday, to the name of another actor--Tom Cruise. So if you enter in "I will miss Heath Ledger," Google Translate will come back with "Voy a perder Tom Cruise."

This looks like a simple bug in the system, perhaps the work of a bored Googler somewhere in the world. It only affects the English-to-Spanish translation; translations from English into other languages leave "Heath Ledger" intact, and "Tom Cruise" remains "Tom Cruise" in a Spanish-to-English translation. And the bug only appears to apply to the name "Heath Ledger," as substituting a number of other actors' names (Owen Wilson, John Travolta, Russell Crowe, Jake Gyllenhaal) also fails to yield "Tom Cruise."

January 26th, 2008...Australia Day festivities take place in New York. A large contingent of Aussie's just happen to be in town less than 4 days after fellow countryman Ledger passes in his SoHo apartment. A rather devestating sync...

C'mon guys, CUT it OUT

Bush admired FALCONS (Horus) during his visit of the Middle East back on Jan. 13th

ABC News Australia reports on "conspiracy theories" surrounding the "cut" communication cables last doesn't take much to look at the situation and realize that something doesn't add up. Placing the old "conspiracy" label on this story doesn't make it go away...reported here!

A second cable was "cut" late Friday raising the number to four within seven days...The last two were part of the FALCON (Horus) network which connects 11 countries. Iran is said to be hardest hit by the mysteriously severed undersea cables.

The Iranian embassy in Abu Dhabi told that "everything is fine", but internet connectivity reports on the web, citing a router in Tehran, appear to indicate that there is currently no connection to the outside world.

BIG Balls

Holmes continues to shine, this time brightly in Phoenix; in the shadow of the most watched Super Bowl ever.

While millions of people worldwide were consuming gaucamole and beer in the traditional pregame rituals of The Super Bowl. Another sporting event was taking place on the other side of Phoenix...The FBR Open (formerly The Phoenix Open) Golf Tournament. The four day event ended in a one hole playoff between the favored Phil Mickleson and tour nobody J.B. Holmes
(born Campbellsville, KY)...with HOLMES taking home the victory for only his second professional win; his first coming just two years ago in the VERY same event. Anyone following my blog on a regular basis will no doubt quiver at the mention of a HOLMES/Phoenix alignment. Or see: COMET 17P HOLMES or the outstanding work of Goro Adachi

There is an interesting new post on PHOENIX at the Stygian Port, as it is VERY relevant to these ongoing observations.

Tiger captures a Djinn

TIGER (orange resonator) Woods was not in the hunt for this particular title as he favored the much larger paycheck for just showing up (and eventually winning) at the Dubai Desert Classic. Of interest is the fact that TIGER actually has a gated residential golf community named for him in Dubai. I'm not all means visit the website, you won't believe this one.

On Wednesday of last week, I speculated that The Patriots might have a hard time overcoming the Giants to complete their unprecedented "dream" season...and it seems that young Eli fulfilled his synchromystic destiny. Researcher Christopher Knowles noticed some interesting 17's surrounding the game...Comet 17P anyone?

One that got away...

As January 22nd, 2008 brought the shocking news of Heath Ledger's untimely death, another JOKER was shredding his way through the competition at the Australian Open Tennis Championships. Serbian Superstar Novak Djokovic, known as "The Joker" captured his first major tournament trophy just 5 days later. How this name play escaped me is beyond really couldn't make this stuff up.,25197,23058807-5013459,00.html
