Synchro-addicts

There are, it seems, synchro-addicts out there who are more addicted than I am when it comes to synchronicity. They obviously have too much time on their hands. Some people actually go about looking for synchronicity. I think that pretty much defeats the purpose. For me, synchronicity is enjoyable as an unexpected part of the day. They are meant to surprise and delight. Below are links to two blogs where people have ventured out with the purpose of looking for synchronicity. I think that in order to define their actions more appropriately, we'll call their efforts "synchronization" instead of "synchronicity". The reason for this, is that they play musical albums while movies are playing to get the lyrics to synch with what is happening in the movie. One of these blogs I mentioned in yesterday's post, but I'll link it here, again. Pink Floyd's "Dark Side of the Moon" album synchs with "The Wizard of Oz" about 60 times. In the next blog, a young man turns Star Wars into a personal project. It appears he stopped the project, with Green Day's "American Idiot", synching up with Star Wars 35 times. I don't know if there others out there trying to synch albums with movies, but I at least want to give The Wizard of Oz a try with one of my favorite albums - The Dark Side of the Moon.

Maybe there are ideas prevalent in our culture that can be found repeated over and over in many works of entertainment.
