Snagged it on slsk years ago and tossed it because I thought I was too cool. So many people since have let me know that in fact, I am not too cool...

"Now with 101 syncs listed, plus a new SECRET DEFINITIVE LIST boasting 38 entries ... so far..."

i must say the fact that the black and white section is
*exactly* the same length as the 1st side of the album pushes me into feeling a morsel of intrigue about it all.

Weird sync: as I was checking out the synchronicity archives linked above, "Welcome To The Machine" came on the radio just in time. Jeez that was weird. I muted my computer just in time to hear:
"its alright we know where youve been.
Youve been in the pipeline, filling in time, provided with toys and
scouting for boys."

Besides the "scouting for boys" part, it's right on the money, if people still call the internet a "pipeline."

This movie is playing on TCM right now with no commercials and sync up Floyd as well. This is pretty cool...

I remember years ago telling a coworker about all this, he then told me he was going to go home and try it on acid that very night. He told me a few days later he did what he said he was going to do and that it blew his mind. I'm just now remembering all that.

I'm not that ballsy as the very few times I did acid were way too much. That drug kicked my ass and had to stay away.

The lunatic is dancing in my head and the scarecrow is dancing on the yellow brick road, pretty cool.

That was fun, tho obviously Pink Floyd didn't watch the film while recording the album. Album is over but the movie still has about an hour to go. Glad to go through that whole experience just once.

Fools. The REAL payoff is synchronizing George Cukor's A Star Is Born and Bob Dylan's Blood on the Tracks.

Used to be a place in town that would screen Nosferatu to Kid A... apparently lots of cool sync moments...

Had the Ultraworld episode of Blake's 7 on as visual accompaniment to the second CD of the first Orb album. No I wasn't stoned but it was kind of amusing. The reveal of the huge ever growing brain that rules from the centre of the ultraworld does pretty much coincide with the start of the last track.

i don't think there's an album / movie combo in existence that wouldn't yield some wild sync moments. because that's how the human brain works.

...loads up Tarkovsky's Stalker and hits play on Gloryhallastoopid...

m0stly clean (Slowsquatch), Thursday, 16 June 2022 04:05 (two weeks ago) link

I recall a while back someone suggesting Born in the U.S.A. and Gangs of New York for some reason. I'm not sure how many illusory sync moments came out of it, but it just played like a hilariously cheesy soundtrack, as if all the ideas were still there but with an absolutely misguided judgment in musical scoring.

birdistheword, Thursday, 16 June 2022 14:29 (two weeks ago) link

Since this happened one week ago, I wanted to provide some context:

> * The lyric "balanced on the perfect wave" occurs just as Dorothy is
> balancing on the pigsty fence.
> * "...balanced on the biggest wave" as Dorothy balances on the
> fence, which leads into "On The Run" as she falls off the fence.
> * Chimes and bells sound just as Elvira Gulch appears on her
> bicycle.
> * During the "Time" guitar solo the fortune teller sign appears,
> reading "past, present & future."
> * The fortune teller tells Dorothy that she needs to go home as the
> lyrics play, "home, home again. I'd like to be there when I can".
> * "The Great Gig in the Sky" begins with the scene change to the
> tornado.
> * The tornado is seen in the background just as the words "and I'm
> not frightened of dying" is heard.
> * When the window sash knocks Dorothy out, the wailing vocal
> subsides.
> * "Great Gig in the Sky" is playing as the house is airborne.
> * The cash register in "Money" is heard just as the color of Oz is
> seen.
> * The ballerina Munchkins enter on the lyric "us..us..us".
> * One ballerina appears to lip sync the words "ordinary men"
> * The Lollypop Guild Munchkins enter on the lyric "me..me..me".
> * The Lollypop Guild's head motions synch with the music.
> * Dorothy turns to face forward on the lyric "forward he cried."
> * The Witch's appearance occurs on the lyric "black..black.."
> * On "blue..blue..blue.." we cut to Dorothy, who of course is
> wearing blue.
> * On the words "and who knows which is which and who is who", we see
> the Wicked Witch of the West looking at the dead feet of the
> Wicked Witch of the East.
> * For "up..up..up", the Witch is on top of a ramp; on "down..down..
> down..", she is walking down.
> * "And in the end", the dead Witch disappears.
> * "Out..out..out", Good Witch Glynda exits in a bubble.
> * The song "Brain Damage" is played as the scarecrow sings "If I
> Only Had a Brain."
> * The heartbeat heard at the end of the album coincides with Dorothy
> listening to the Tin Man's heart.

Echoes vs the Zapruder film

calstars, Saturday, 18 June 2022 00:18 (two weeks ago) link

xp I’ve never got what’s supposed to happen when the album ends (and the movie has a lot of time left). Do you play it again? Switch to Wish You Were Here?

Bunheads Pilot Enthusiast (morrisp), Saturday, 18 June 2022 04:38 (two weeks ago) link

Interestingly, the next part of the move is they run through the "flowers" and then fall asleep. Seemed like a lost opportunity to me :wink:

Bee OK, Saturday, 18 June 2022 04:45 (two weeks ago) link

I remember an old flatmate of mine tried this once. He also borrowed a Stockhausen album from me and I came home one night to find him watching "Metropolis" with the album playing and him insisting the two lined up perfectly. I can't remember what album it was though.
