The Wrecking Crew

83 = Oblivion?

The Aleph & The Omega?

oblivion |əˈblivēən|nounthe state of being unaware or unconscious of what is happening: they drank themselves into oblivion.• the state of being forgotten, esp. by the public: his name will fade into oblivion.• extinction: only our armed forces stood between us and oblivion.Lawhistorical amnesty or pardon.ORIGIN late Middle English: via Old French from Latin oblivio(n-), from oblivisci forget.

Here's the deal. I've been chasing a sync now for a long time. 82. One may recall that I first mentioned this perhaps somewhere near the start of this blog back in 2011. I'll link if I can. The 82 really became my touchstone, and if you dig around on this blog, you will see, that again, and again, this is the thing I'm trying to unpack, to understand. Is it a year? What is it?

Anyway, the flow is heavy and heady lately. The other day at a pizza joint, the gal in front of us was getting a beer with her slice and she made a point of saying that she was old enough, that her birthday was 82-82. hmmmm. OK, I'll bite. so I checked her out and on her left shoulder was a large sledgehammer tattoo. And that was that, and I didn't think to awful much of it. But then the 4282 sync storm began . . . .

So, usually, I don't know what my syncs are saying. They guide me, and I follow, and I try to understand them, but they are never an answer in themselves. They lead to more questions. This here today is a meditation on last week's sledgehammer "answer" in response to last night's 4282 sync fest. (Did you people feel it?)

The Wrecking Crew, released in December, 1968 and starring Dean MartinElke SommerNancy KwanTina Louise and Sharon Tate, is the fourth and final film in a series of American comedy-spy-fi theatrical releases featuring Martin as secret agent Matt Helm.
As with the previous three Helm spy movies (The SilencersMurderers' Row, and The Ambushers), it is based only loosely upon Donald Hamilton's 1960 novel of the same title and takes great liberties with the plot and characters, being developed as a spoof of the James Bond films. The Wrecking Crew was the second Helm novel published and the earliest of the books to be adapted.
This was the last film of Tate's to be released before her murder at the hands of Charles Manson's followers on August 9, 1969.~ Wiki

The Wrecking Crew was a nickname coined by drummer Hal Blaine for a group of studio and session musicians that played anonymously on many records in Los Angeles, California during the 1960s. The crew backed dozens of popular singers, and were one of the most successful groups of studio musicians in music history.~Wiki

The Wrecking Crew is a team of four fictional supervillains — Bulldozer, Piledriver, Thunderball, and the Wrecker — that appears in Marvel Comics. While not featured on the cover, the Wrecking Crew's first appearance is in Defenders vol. 1, #17 in November 1974.~Wiki

Oblivion: Stories (2004) is a collection of short fiction by American author David Foster Wallace. Oblivion is Wallace's third and last short story collection and was listed as a 2004 New York Times Notable Book of the Year.[1] Throughout the stories, Wallace explores the nature of reality, dreams, trauma, and the "dynamics of consciousness."[2] The story "Good Old Neon" was included in The O. Henry Prize Stories 2002.~Wiki


The world is increasingly unthinkable, a world of planetary disasters, emerging pandemics, and the looming threat of extinction. In this book Eugene Thacker suggests that we look to the genre of horror as offering a way of thinking about the unthinkable world. To confront this idea is to confront the limit of our ability to understand the world in which we live - a central motif of the horror genre. In the Dust of This Planet explores these relationships between philosophy and horror. In Thacker's hands, philosophy is not academic logic-chopping; instead, it is the thought of the limit of all thought, especially as it dovetails into occultism, demonology, and mysticism. Likewise, Thacker takes horror to mean something beyond the focus on gore and scare tactics, but as the under-appreciated genre of supernatural horror in fiction, film, comics, and music.~Amazon




The Wall of Noise: "I can't break through your world"

"There is a veil: that veil is black. It is the veil of the modest woman; it is the veil of sorrow, & the pall of death: this is none of me. Tear down that lying spectre of the centuries: veil not your vices in virtuous words . . ."

Babalon and the Beast


It's just the fear of LOSING YOU
Don't you know my name
Well, you've been SOLANGE . . .

Still this pulsing night
A plague I call a heartbeat
Just be still with me
Ya wouldn't believe what I've been thru
You've been SOLANGE
Well it's been SOLANGE
And I've been putting out fire
with gasoline
putting out fire
with gasoline



  1. On Wednesday night we watched Chapter 27:

    "The movie Rosemary's baby was filmed in the Dakota Building were John Lennon was shot to death by Mark David Chapman (A Big Beatles Fan). It also appears that John Lennon knew the director Roman Polanski personally. Roman Polanski's wife Sharon Tate was Murdered by "the Manson Family", when she was pregnant. Charles Manson has a connection to the Beatles via the song Helter Skelter, and had his own "special" interpretation of the song. Charles Manson's "followers" wrote "Helter Skelter" in blood when they killed Sharon Tate."

    Lennon was shot on 12.8.80.

    Hal Blaine...(H=8 B=2)

    Blaine being King's Sentient, Insane Train who's final destination is Oblivion. Hal we already know represents much the same.

    "Teen Titans" Issue #82 is titled "The Taking of Dakota".

    1. Agreed - there has always been far too many to choose from.

  3. today after a walk in the forest had a lengthy debate with my sis (visiting from SF) about the necessary evolutionary jump required by mankind in order to continue. Kubrick's Dark Monoliths were in-play as her boyfriend works for Apple - and so the BEAT goes on.

    ultimately we (I) decided perhaps in the future a dominant species will evolve out of Cats.
