The Manson Web, Part 1


Five to one, baby
One in five
No one here gets out alive
–The Doors, “Five To One”

The passing of Charles Manson has inevitably led me to revisit the Sinister Forces trilogy by Peter Levenda, with the “Manson Secret” being the “scarlet thread of murder” that runs through all three volumes. Merely dipping a toe within chapter 11 of book two, “Night Of The Long Knives,” is like plunging headlong into a rabbit hole of leviathan proportions—a rabbit hole that not only encompasses Manson and the Sharon Tate murder, but Egyptian Gods, MKUltra, the JFK assassination, The Beach Boys, and even Richard M. Nixon.

Time Is A Flat Circle…

Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in “Surfer, Dude” (2008) and “True Detective” (2014)

Time is a flat circle. Everything we have done or will do we will do over and over and over again—forever.
–Rust Cohle, “True Detective”

Warner Bros. Pulling “Geostorm” Posters Out Of Theaters ‘Cause Too Real Man


Talk about your bad timing! The Warner Bros. weather disaster movie Geostorm is scheduled to hit screens October 20th…but the studio just pulled the posters for the film out of theaters out of respect for those impacted by Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

The “IT” And “27 Club” Connection


I would assume that a number of our readers are familiar with the weird synchronicities and whatnot involved with the number 23. Then there is the “27 Club”…the sync where a number of famous rock stars like Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, and Jim Morrison, and Amy Winehouse all died at the age of 27.

Now I’ve found out that there is a weird connection brought up about the number 27 and the book/TV miniseries/movie IT

A Boy And His Daimon: “Death Note” (2017) Esoteric Theories


The movie Death Note, which was recently released on Netflix, is somewhat based on the popular manga and anime of the same name. There is controversy in fan circles regarding this film, because #1 the main characters are no longer Japanese (true) and #2 that it is not super-faithful to the source material (true: this film is to the manga what Stanley Kubrick’s Shining was to the Stephen King version, at least in terms of a much different tone).

I’m not tackling that controversy here, but I am going to take a look at the film “as-is,” for the purposes of esoteric and synchromystic analysis. Spoilers ahead.
