Movie Synchronicity 3: The Lone Gunmen 9/11 fine mess

Pilot episode "predicts" 9/11
In a foreshadowing of the
September 11, 2001 attacks, subsequent conspiracy theories, and the 2003 invasion of Iraq, the plot of the March 4, 2001 pilot episode of the series depicts a secret U.S. government agency plotting to crash a Boeing 727 headed for Boston into the World Trade Center via remote control for the purpose of increasing the military defence budget and blaming the attack on foreign "tin-pot dictators" who are "begging to be smart-bombed." This episode aired in Australia less than two weeks before the 9/11 attacks, on August 30.

There is allot more of this kind of stuff foreshaddowing the 9/11 event. The one I like is the cover of "The Coup" album "Party music".

The group gained some national attention for the cover art of their recording Party Music. The album cover depicted group members Pam the Funkstress and Riley standing in front of the twin towers of the World Trade Center as they are destroyed by huge explosions; Riley is pushing the button on a guitar tuner. The cover art was finished in June 2001. The album's planned release date was just after the events of the September 11, 2001 attacks, and the cover art was withdrawn hastily. There was no connection between the band and the attacks. The album release was held back as alternative cover art was prepared.

Anyway, an explanation by myself about this fine mess would probably involve ascended Illuminati Grandmasters, a tesla coil, a 13 spanner and Solomon's Temple. I think its best for all if you make up your own explanation come to think of it.

On January 28 1986 I sat in a public movie theater with a crowd of others and watched a scene from the first-run film "Runaway Train" starring John Voight and scripted by Akiro Kurosawa.

In the scene a group of distraught men are staring at a vast electonic display of train lines and locations in which they can see (but not prevent) an apparently imminent train crash. Among their many monitors is a screen tuned to a TV news station, and on the news is a clip of the space shuttle launching. The camera closes in on this bright, grainy image as one of the desperate voices over: "...things just go wrong... we do our best but some things are beyond our control..."

It was on that morning, earlier, that the Challenger had exploded over the Florida coast. The audience was stricken into collective silence and a shiver went through us all.
