For Pink Floyd fans (who happen to like the film It's A Wonderful Life)


After writing about It's A Wonderful Life yesterday, I found a website that details the synchronicity when watching that film while listening to the 1975 Pink Floyd album Wish You Were Here.

It includes 20 connections between watching the film and listening to the CD over and over at the exact same time. Things like during the song Shine On You Crazy Diamond, when the line "Remember when you were young", the scene in the movie is a close up of George Bailey as a young lad.

Furthering this connection, if you look at this cover of Wish You Were Here, it clearly is a the backlot of a movie studio. Is this a hint or just a coincidence?

Top 5 Jimmy Stewart movies

1. Vertigo

2. It's A Wonderful Life

3. Rear Window

4. Mr. Smith Goes To Washington

5. Winchester '73

We are now into day 8 of the World Cup and I found a funny joke about it. Though I am pretty sure it was originally about the Chicago Cubs in the World Series but you get the point.

A man had great tickets for the World Cup Final. As he sits down, another man comes down and asks if anyone is sitting in the empty seat next tohim."No," he says. "The seat is empty." This is incredible!" says the other man. "Who in their right mind would have a seat like this for the WorldCup Final, the biggest sporting event in the world, and not use it?""Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. My wife was supposed to come with me, but she passed away.This is the first World Cup Final we haven't been to together since we got married in 1966 in London.""Oh ... I'm sorry to hear that. That's terrible. But couldn't you find someone else, a friend or relative, or even a neighbor to take the seat?"The man shakes his head. "No. They're all at the funeral."

Oh, I "remembered" Philadelphia Story...but I would rather watch these five films over that. I would also rather see The Man Who Knew Too Much, Harvey and The Man Who Shot Liberty Vallence over Philadelphia story as well.
