It appears that we don't have too many Synchromystic fans here, but this is becoming my latest obsession, so you all are going to have to live with it. <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/wub.gif" alt="Wub" title="wub" />


Anyhoo, Fallout 3 was released today, on the Lunar Samhain, and my son has been waiting for it and talking about it for YEARS, so he just loaded it on my computer. He also got a lunchbox with it showing the storyline on the front. You won't be surprised to learn that it shows:

A mountain shaped like a pyramid, with a stargate showing through a cave opening, with a sun shining rays out the opening. Happy smiling 50's style people stand in line to walk through the stargate #101.

I mean, come on! This is getting stupid!

In Vault #101, no one ever enters....no one ever leaves..............

that is...unless you know the secret of 101 and can go thru the Stargate?
I just looked up that lunch box and have to say I utterly disagree with you, what that in fact shows is a bunker in a basic mountain and in the background are nuclear explosions, with the people lined up trying to go in. Although I dohav to say the door shaped as a gear is kinda funny. Ferom what I managed to find as the story is what I thought, basic futuristic postwar type stuff. There isnt anything hidden here, and if you were to hide something, I would think that you would have to tell someone about it to even get anyone at all to notice(I dont think there is anything hidden)
You're right, it isn't hidden at all. That was kinda my point.

Additionally I am not claiming to know exactly what that message is, only that they are repeating it every freakin' time I turn around, so it picks up momentum.

The synchromystic approach is only noticing the trends in media - so I'm not really trying to imply anything sinister here.

I find the imagery creepy. It represents those same people that told me as a child that I would be saved from nuclear fallout by placing wet newspaper over my head.

Yeah, creepy imagery ... young, smiling Aryan and all. Not sure why so many are smiling, as those nukes going off will radiate them long before they get inside. And the toothed gear isn't going to roll too far with those unmoving tooth-holes both on top and bottom. And the sun shining through ... well perhaps the mountain opening is aligned with the summer solstice (based on what folks are wearing) just to add some additional mystery to the pic. <img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/jawdrop.gif" alt=":dropjaw:" title="drop jaw" />
That's hilarious...isn't that Bob, of the Church of the Sub-Genius on the left? And the fat cat tycoon from the Monopoly game on the right, minus mustache and dressed up like some younger character?

Actually, I didn't see the Quaker™ symbol until after I posted it. TinTin is a series of cartoon books by a french writer (I think his name is Herve (spelled with accents above the e's going in all sorts of directions)). Good series. I read most of them when I was just a wee lad.

I read somewhere that paper stops beta particles, but not alpha particles and gamma rays. As if anyone would paper their windows and want to be around after a thermonuclear war.

Scream Rofl I watched the people today do that.
Oooooo - new addition to the story line. Monarch brainwashing, programming your memories while you sleep.


<img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/damned.gif" alt="Damned" title="damned" />
The programming is to convince you that you are born inside the vault, when apparently there is a witness that tells you that they are brainwashing you, and you were really born outside...?....free.....? Not sure what the implication is there.

I didn't know that Thompson Twins got their name from TinTin!


Alannah Currie (born 20 September 1957) is a New Zealand musician and artist, best known as a former member of the British pop group Thompson Twins.

Born in in Auckland, New Zealand, Currie emigrated to England in 1977, as a drop-out rock journalist. Currie squatted in various places in South West London, ending up in Lillieshall Road, Clapham Old Town. This turned out to be a major step on the road to stardom with the Thompson Twins. In 1979, with her across-the-road neighbour, Trace Newton-Ingham (Traci Newton), she co-founded the dread-punk-improvising group, The Unfuckables.

The Unfuckables performed one especially memorable gig at an Anti-Psychiatry Conference in early 1980, held in the Conway Hall, Red Lion Square, London. For this particular gig the group comprised of the two co-founders, plus an array of musicians from London's 'underground' music scene - Viv Albertine (The Slits), Gareth Sager (The Pop Group), Charles Bullen and Charles Hayward (This Heat), Tom Bailey (Thompson Twins), Jimmy Cauty (later of The KLF) and improviser Steve Beresford, amongst others.

Soon after this, she joined the Thompson Twins and much later still the more experimental Babble... as lyricist, percussionist and visual artist. In 1992 she returned to New Zealand working primarily as a glass artist and environmental activist. She was founder of the women's anti-GM movement MAdGE. In 2004 she designed a series of protest billboards that caused huge controversy in New Zealand but won several international art / science awards.

Currie currently lives and works in London where she is a student of the little known art movement, armchair destructivists.

The Thompson Twins were an English New Wave/pop band normally associated with the 1980s. The band formed in April 1977, and disbanded in May 1993. Massively popular in the mid-1980s, the band scored a string of hits in the UK, broke into the USA and Canada and enjoyed huge popularity around the globe. Total worldwide record sales are estimated at 50 million. The band was named after the two bumbling detectives in Hergé's comic strip, The Adventures of Tintin.
