Episode 14: Hail Eris! Creating Synchronicities With The Perfect Haired Oracle of the East!
We battled some serious technical goblins bringing you this episode (and Andrea was still pretty loopy on pain pills after surgery but was a real trooper!) - even after weeks of editing, there's some rough spots we can't avoid, and hope they don't detract from the episode's content. We blame Alien Interference - tell us on Twitter what you think it could be!
Shortly after SJ watched Hellier they made friends with lots of people on Twitter, but a few of the people she met (like Andrea) quickly became more important in her life than others. This episode's guest is another one of those people. While we are obviously biased as to the level of his awesomeness, by the end of this episode we think you'll agree with us why he exudes an effortless level of cool we all can aspire to... and for some reason, loves to put up with SJ's BS!
We're thrilled to finally bring you a conversation with one of our favorite humans, A. P. Strange, better known around these parts as "Matt," or the Perfect Haired Oracle of the East.
The Inventor of the Official Perfect Hair Ritual(TM).
Don't let his velvet voice and humble nature fool you - not only does this motherfucker have perfect hair, he's a talented musician, writer, researcher, magician and Doctor of Kookonomy. SJ is actually willing to fight anyone that claims there is person alive who has a more encyclopedic base of random weird knowledge in their brilliant brain... with the exception of John E.L. Tenney, because hey, even Perfect Haired Oracles need #Goals too, right?
Some of Matt's favorite divination methods are what he calls "Messages From The Cosmos" - we'll get into what that means, and some of the ways the strange appears in Matt's life... including through dreams and the appearance of birds... and junk mail!
Magic Partners in Chaos!
As their friendship grew into frequent & daily contact, Sara and Matt had separately ended up down thought paths that "Nothing is Real" (aka, we likely live in a simulation of some sort). We wondered if synchronicities may just be patterns of "glitches" we noticed.
Taking it a step further, SJ and Matt decided that if nothing is real, then in theory we, and anyone else, should be able to influence it. So, the two of them decided to try to create a synchronicity on purpose. Despite putting lots of thought into what they thought was an innocuous enough item to try to pump into "the Simulation", doing so still had some unexpected consequences that oddly led directly back to Greg and Dana Newkirk from Hellier. (Sorry guys!)
Additionally, a secondary hilarious synchronicity pattern started up around mummies. This is of course a perfect reflection of Matt's Discordian beliefs in action - Hail Eris! The weird synchronicities between these Two Witches and Matt continue to unfold - now he's even in the brick finding business!
And of course, never to be forgotten, our favorite bossy nun has also made her presence known in Matt's life. Make sure to connect with Matt on Twitter or check out his excellent blog!
Mummies Everywhere! WHAT HAVE WE DONE?
Want to help us bring back "The King?"
It's happening again - Matt and SJ are up to their BS, and this time they're bringing Elvis... maybe in a UFO.
Because if Nothing is Real, literally everything could be considered a Tulpa. One of the things they agree on is that Elvis has become one of the most powerful and beloved Tulpas out there - some of their other wild Tulpa theories would get them thrown out of church just for voicing them aloud (Cough!)... but that's fun for another day.
If Elvis is a Tulpa it could explain all of the sightings since he died. Watching an old TV special about "John Burrows," (one of the rumored aliases he has used since he "faked his death") Matt recognized that the map of possible Elvis encounters was a sigil. You probably already can guess what we did. NO RULES. CHAOS ONLY. LONG LIVE THE KING!
