Welcome! Don't forget to check out the navigation links above for other material, including updates about my work in the 2nd volume of THE SYNC BOOK, as well as some other odd things I've been up to lately!
But I'm sure the real reason why you're here is to take the mindtrip journey that's waiting for you below...Just remember to please be kind to yourself, and don't try and take it all in at once; Exploding brains leave stubborn stains and aren't easily replaced. And also keep in mind that I have no idea what in the hell I am talking about 90% of the time, I just put this stuff out cuz it sounds cool, lol.
Enjoy yo self!!! Peace out...
LATEST UPDATE: 4/19/2013 - I finished something! Two new videos: one is a crazy mashed-up video for Justin Timberlake's song MIRROR, which is already perhaps one of the most "syncnificant" videos I've seen in a long time...Which I'm sure you can understand if you've been following my work. The other is an old movie-and-album pairing that I revived from years ago: Madonna's RAY OF LIGHT album with the movie THE ABYSS...It doesn't really get good until about halfway though (it's 25 minutes long), but it has a few impressive parallels between the two! And of course I STILL have a number of my epic "personal" sync videos waiting for a few finishing touches; I just haven't had time to do them yet because I've been busy struggling with some areas of personal growth, finally got frustrated to the point that I had to retreat for a while and do videos again. But dammit, I'm gonna come back swingin' when I'm done!!! ;-)
HOPEFULLY UNNECESSARY DISCLAIMER
NOTE that although there is the occasional mention of drug use in these videos, I do not condone or recommend drugs or psychedelics for recreational use, or even for "spiritual exploration." While it does seem that I've learned a lot from a few of them, I've also had my share of difficulties integrating what I've learned, and I've been lucky...I have close personal friends who have had far more serious difficulties with them, and no plant or chemical is going to provide you with a permanent escape from your inevitable responsibilities. You have all you need within you.
Also, despite my seeming knowledge in certain areas, I'm not currently what you would call an occultist or practicing magician, or a member of any group involved with esoteric workings; The ideas reflected in these videos are merely an experimental exploration of synchronicity and meaningful coincidence, which inevitably tend to deal quite heavily with symbolism embedded in pop culture. There's plenty of debate about why those symbols are there and what they're being used for, but basically, I'm just goofing off and making art with all this; Nothing in these videos is intended to promote or foreshadow violence, butt rape, black magick, devil worship, or making fun of anyone's momma...But due to my twisted sense of humor, I will certainly joke about such things a bit. So please don't take anything here too seriously here, life is for joy and love and stuff.
Behold! The ego-melting magick of my metafictional synchro-media...
An unformation-packed un-cyclopedia, sent here to lead ya,
Head-first into a brave new inner dimension...
So lend me your attention, please,
But keep your mind at ease...
Because you're about to see
More than you might
The video widgets further below contain [some of] the fruits of my recent video-making labors...And many more are still in the works. But since they're being hosted on my account at Vimeo, I highly recommend that you actually watch them there instead of on this website; You'll be treated to a much larger screen size and better video quality, and a few other nifty options. There are also quite a few "descriptions" I'veadded below each of the videos to share some important notes about them, and they don't show up on the video widgets here on my website...So you may as well ignore them for now and simply:
Some people seem to find this stuff a bit creepy, even scary, so I'm gonna say this right now: I WILL NOT BE HELD RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE (OTHER THAN MYSELF) LOSING THEIR MINDS DUE TO EXPOSURE TO THIS MADNESS!!! In the process of making these exhausting works of art, I eventually pieced together a few things that have caused me quite a bit of stress at various times; I currently have several videos in the works that I'm hesitant to finish because they've gotten a bit too intense for me. But due to personal interpretation, you may simply shrug the whole thing off or actually find it funny...If I ever indeed get around to sharing it all.
Having said that...I've divided my monstrous video collection into 3 different primary color-coded channels, but these are somewhat irrelevant; First of all because there are actually various disagreements over what the "primary" colors are (mixing colors of LIGHT is actually a much different process than mixing pigments of paint, it seems), and second because, well...Throughout the course of making the videos, they kind of began taking on their own meanings; But there's no need to be concerned with that right now. Just start with Blue.
THE RED ONE
The Red Channel is meant to serve as the guide and introduction, but unfortunately its the one I haven't really started on yet; the videos below are just filler, not the intended material - but do check out the first video, which is an excellent piece made by Joe Alexander. And this one won't take long to do once I get around to it; It will deal mostly with the practical ideas and uses of synchromysticism and theories about its sources, connections to the "law of attraction," the psychological origins of the universe, astral projection, spiritual and psychic development, etc...
You know, the things the guys in lab coats shake their silly heads at.
Skeptics beware! This will make much more sense than you do.
THE BLUE ONE
The Blue Channel is where the real magic starts; It began as a playful experiment, I began by throwing together a few personal coincidences with some interesting movie symbolism and a couple of archetypal ideas from the tarot deck, mixed it all up with some music, and went with the results...From there I began following the trail of associations that came to me, both from my inner world and from the synchronistic reflections in my outer experience. The first couple of pieces aren't very linear and seem to jump around too much, but each consecutive video adds to and builds upon the themes from the last, and this eventually developed into something so emotionally stirring that several times I had to stop and make sure there weren't UFO's outside of my house beaming stuff at my laptop...I'm still close to pooping my pants over how much of this stuff came together by total accident!
THE YELLOW ONE
The Yellow Channel is much more linear and personal, giving a more detailed account of some of the more transformation experiences I went through on my sync-journey: the classic mystical Dark Night of the Soul, romantic obsessions and telepathic witches, encounters with shadow people and ghostly entities, paranoid delusions and soul development...This channel almost needs a warning label! Oh, and there's also some original music and artsy junk that I did in here. But as of 1-20-13, I've got a handful of the later videos in the series uploaded, yet a large number of earlier and later ones are still in development. So it may take some patience to finish all this, but if you even attempt it you can expect to have your freakin' mind blown to bits and pixels. Now that you've been warned, buy the ticket and take the ride:
And if you're curiosity leads you to do so, check out some of the similar synchrophiliacs on the huge list over at Synchromystic Pop Culture. We don't always agree with each other about what's going on here, but that's life...And its fucking beautiful. And the whole purpose of sharing this information is to make it even more so!
