So? This past summer I was being bombarded by Tommys. I didn't lay them out. . . They were part of something larger that never happened. I wonder if I shouldn't reacquaint myself with them?
-Tom Hanks (in Mazes and Monsters attempting to jump from the twins).
Now it is Tom w/ the message. (From Aug. or Sept or so. . .)
Let's nail down the syncs: Bridges, Toms, King's Cross[ing], Lost Boys, Great Hall[hallos/halloween]
[God, J.K.'s mythology is so perfect. It has one job, to prepare us all for death through love. Perhaps H.P. is the Aqurian hero. Jesus had his run, I think there is about to be a shake up.]

So I had Jeff Bridges and Starman up on deck but watched Mazes and Monsters tonight w/ my kids.
Oh My God.
I don't know if a movie has blown my mind more than this one from 1982. I think that I may (?) have seen it Dec. 28th 1982 on CBS. It seemed vaguely familiar. It ruined Dungeons and Dragons for many of my friends. After the film many of my friend's parents wouldn't let them play. I think I got my first basic set over this Christmas break too. I was ten.
In the film, Tom Hanks got "stuck" in the D&D type game and went crazy. His quest took him from the Pequod caverns to THE WTC! The Pequod was the ship that hunted Moby Dick, and Tom's quest was to Jump from the North Tower, (I think). This might be a good one to lay on The Secret Sun actually. I dunno.
This film's surface message was one of warning in playing with the idea of the imagination with a game like D&D. Tom Hanks ends up crazy. (Another film that really killed me was Vanilla Sky-everyone told him to jump in that one and he did with the twins in the background.
The (intentional/unintentional)metaphor of this film is quite interesting though. The game is life. We play the game to work on our stuff, but we have to be careful not to take it too seriously. We identify w/ our character and our role while we are playing, but then we can step back and know that none of it was real and that the monsters were all in our head. Nothing new there, but wow.
I may watch this a few times, but I might not too. I don't know if this will become a post or not either. Maybe it would be better on my site. Humm.
There was also a hint of a warning in this film to me though. I sometimes worry that I too am going crazy. What happens when it's all sync all the time. Well, that's the singularity. I'm not ready for that. I like this dirty sandbox. I want to try and clean it up so others can play too.
-respond if you've seen this or have any thoughts. I'll have to think what I'm going to do with this.
Maybe, I'll just watch Starman as originally planned to chill out.
The Rabbit WHOLE
-I've really been inspired lately by the work of toure and AFST-Shaman. They've kept me thinking about wonderland.
-I've recycled a ton of stuff here I never used. . .
I'm working on something I'm calling "A Diagram of The Universe: 432" It may start w/ a prequel first though in seven parts. Read Jake Kotze. He blows my mind. He is a mystic. No doubt, just flow. . .
A point? not sure there is one.
let go. . .
