Always Record: Episode 7

Episode 7:
Lucky 777


  1. Great talk so far
    (I'm still not even halfway through it)
    but here's a few syncs.
    You talk about finding grasshoppers on sun discs at Cleopatra's Needle.
    My favourite TV show when growing up was the Bruce Lee inspired "Kung Fu" starring
    David Carradine (grasshopper).

    You then talk about grasshoppers being released in the desert at Burning Man.
    Sun discs/Burning Man/Grasshoppers ???
    Watch this clip;

    See all the sun discs (lens flair)
    coming off the sun following
    DC(grasshopper)as he makes his way through the desert?

    Getting back to Andras Jones once more,he played the Kung Fu/Karate Kid in
    "Nightmare on Elm Street 4:The Dream Master".
    He was also born on August 12th which is the day in 30 BC that Cleopatra VII Philopator, the last ruler of the Egyptian Ptolemaic dynasty, commits suicide, allegedly by means of an asp bite.

  2. Also I just noticed in the You Tube from the comment above;
    "Kung Fu Theme music. David Carradine."

    David Carradine enters Bob's Saloon
    (you mentioned a sync about Bob during this talk)at the 4:24
    mark,which is the time you posted
    "Always Record: Episode 7" here.
    424 was also my dad's taxi cab number when he owned and drove a cab.
    I guess Carradine could be considered the hanged man,considering the circumstances surrounding his real life death.

  3. Talking about 88 -
    Number 88 symbolizes fortune and good luck in Chinese culture, since the word 8 sounds similar to the word Fā
    (which implies,or wealth, in Mandarin).
    The number 8 is considered to be the luckiest number in Chinese culture, and prices in Chinese supermarkets often contain many 8s. The shape of the Chinese character for 8 implies that a person will have a great, wide future as the character starts narrow and gets wider toward the bottom.
    The Chinese government has been auctioning auto license plates containing many 8s for tens of thousands of dollars.
    The 2008 Beijing Olympics opened on 8/8/08 at 8 p.m.88 is often used to mean "bye bye" in Chinese-language chats, text messages, SMSs and IMs. 88 is pronounced in Chinese Mandarin language as "ba ba" ("bā bā" to be precise), simulating the sound of the English language "bye bye".

    88 is used as shorthand for 'hugs and kisses' when signing a message in Amateur (ham) Radio. It is used in spoken word (radiotelephony) morse code (radiotelegraphy) and in various digital modes.
    It is considered rather more intimate than '73', which (roughly) means 'best regards', and therefore 73 is more often used.
    The two may be used together. Sometimes the 88 or 73 is pluralized by appending an s, which is incorrect.These number codes are at least a century old.

    * In "Kill Bill"(Carradine), the name of O-Ren Ishii's Army, the Crazy 88

    * The dead man's hand in poker is a pair of aces and a pair of 8's.
