So come up to the lab
And see what's on the slab
I see you shiver with anticipation
But maybe the rain
Is really to blame
So I'll remove the cause but not the symptom
Sweet Transvestite, Rocky Horror Picture Show
MAYBE THE RAIN IS REALLY TO BLAME
The ''rain'' is COVID-19 (which remember is ''water-borne'' & also ''the blazing star'') and the vaccine (which is associated with ''the light'' throughout the movie) removes the cause but in so doing gives you the symptoms (and side-effects). We ''shiver with anticipation'' because as they intensity the rollout of the vaccine they also intensify the news of its harmful and sometimes lethal side effects - i.e. slowly intensifying fear and panic.
WHAT'S ON THE SLAB
Well how about that? Looks like you've got yourselves a particularly stacked slab there Destruction Team.
Attenborough's new documentary brings the character of the Narrator (criminologist) back so the launch of the doc will prob. coincide with a sequence from the film; the bewildering new variants foreshadow the relentless expansion of medtech (Frank's speech in a few days) and lockdowns (more Medusa-ing); the human monkey hybrids probably foreshadow Rocky and certainly post-shadow Kong; the secret ''cryo-chamber'' certainly gives weight to the Putin as Riff-Raff (Janus) alter theory; the Pentagon UFO confirmation also leads into the alien reveal that occurs at the end of the show (that is 2021); finally when Philip got staked they had to use the Transylvanian rainbow chamber to transfer his soul to a younger vessel.... oh sorry wrong meeting... ;-)
TEST THE THEORY
The cast list we have established so far is as follows:
- American Gothic - Joe and Jill Biden
- Brad and Janet - Average American (British, Canadian, etc) conservative (with a small c or a big one)
- The Skeleton in the Coffin - Prince Philip
- Columbia - Meghan (+ contemporary intersectional feminism)
- Magenta - Her Majesty and the ''Firm'' with all that that entails
- Rocky - Prince Harry (+ others)
- Riff Raff (bumbling servant) - Johnson
- Riff Raff (demonic alien lord) - Putin
- The Transylvanian Convention - The EU, the Commonwealth, the UN etc (elite representatives)
- Frank'n'Furter - Kamala Harris (+ Caitlyn Jenner)
Maximum Beast mode, fellow entities, Maximum Beast mode is active.
17th April - 6th May, 2021
17th April - Brad and Janet are being stripped, Brad has power fantasy that he can go through with it but still keep the upper hand
This relates to the vaccination process quite clearly as you must bear your arm. ''Pull out the aces'' this is the rhetoric that many conservatives will be going through as they take the vaccination themselves. Reference to the Ace might be a detail signal to those that can see.
Post-Prediction Note (UPDATE) - We were expecting an ACE signal. Was this it? The ACE Eddie Awards ceremony. Note that the awards were called the Eddie awards.
18th April - Introduction to Brad (Majors) and Janet (Weiss)
Attention is brought to the conservative American public as a phenomena. Probably this whole sequence relates to tension between liberal America and conservative America. So throughout this sequence it is easy to see that tension over the vaccine and the relief programs.
Post-Prediction Note (UPDATE): Fauci: ''Republican vaccine deniers are are hurting efforts to life covid-restrictions.''
19th April - Columbia says ''Some people would give their right arm for this'', Brad says ''people like you...''
This relates to the shortage of vaccine but also that certain countries are shipping known dodgy vaccines to other countries because they don't want to risk their own people with them e.g. Denmark and the AstraZeneca jab. It also posits this opposition between conservative rural America (Brad) who are behind in the vaccination program compared to liberal New York/Los Angeles (Columbia) who are ahead.
Post-Prediction Note (UPDATE): Greta Thunberg speaks out against vaccine inequality
It is very interesting they gave Columbia's line to Greta Thunberg on this day - ''some people would give their right arm for this'' - i.e. vaccine inequality. As you know both Meghan and Greta mean Pearl and they are now both associated with that character. They also share this broader association with environmental-social justice, etc. We can therefore expect Greta to possibly play Columbia's lines in the future. This is something we should have been able to at least acknowledge if not directly predict.
20th April - RiffRaff drinks and smashes champagne bottle
Johnson (or Putin?) drink and then smash bottle - this is likely to be some kind of spat or outburst probably linked to trade again and probably with the EU. Maybe ''a cause to celebrate'' turns out wrong. This could then relate to not easing of restrictions in bars in the UK.
Post-Prediction Note (UPDATE): US Ambassador leaves Moscow as tensions rise
Post-Prediction Note (UPDATE): Johnson cancels India trip over COVID concerns
Post-Prediction Note (UPDATE): Pubs and Restaurant Bosses Launch Legal Battle over Covid Rules
21st April - RiffRaff, Magenta and Columbia go up to the lab in the elevator. RiffRaff explains that they are simply the servants of the master.
Deference from Britain to America. Bear in mind this swaps at the end of the film. Britain being the secret master of the USA. Or is it Russia..?
Post-Prediction Note (UPDATE): Number 10 Cancels US Style Briefings after spending 2.6 million on studio
I've added this one ahead of time as it is breaking now (20th April) at the end of the evening in Europe so will naturally spill over to tomorrow. This is quite big news as it looks like they created this monstrosity ''joke'' studio just to destroy it (in this way...). Another point Eldritch Investigators might want to consider is what did they actually build under Downing Street then? Details of the story are that the Prime will now brief from the Number 9 Briefing Room.
Post-Prediction Note (UPDATE): English football teams quit Super-league which collapses the enterprise
This event feels like it syncs with the previous day (20th April) of ''England'' smashing the champagne bottle, especially since it was English teams vs Euro teams at that moment. This highlights the +/-1 day accuracy outlined above. In deepening our understanding of this problem it may be worth thinking about global-time, as this probably covers that uncertainty.
''We are simply the servants of the master'' - American Owners of British Clubs: Glazers own Man United, Kroeneke own Arsenal, Hicks owns Liverpool
22nd April - Elevator reaches the lab, Frank'n'furter in view.
Kamala spotlight or other Sweet Transvestite (perhaps Levine...) related news. Update: This is Earth Day.
Pre-Prediction Note - Kamala Harris joins Discovery for Earth Day Special on Climate Change
Post-Prediction Note - Earth Day Summit
The Earth Day Summit gave us view of the elite see below, again (+/-1 day of accuracy)
23 April & 24th April - Creepy POV shots that include the elite, a view of heaven and statues (from the Medusa Transducer)
Lockdowns represented by the petrified people lurk in the background, threateningly, as they approach ''the slab''. View of heaven (space related news), the Elite (eventually this will relate to finance in Sword of Damocles and they are in the same position in that piece so we might want to see them as WTO, WEF, G20, etc at this point, but they may still be EU/UN).
Post-Prediction Note - Caitlyn Jenner announces run for governor
This is within tolerance (+/-1) day of accuracy and is therefore an exact strike.
Post-Prediction Note - UK is now entering into intense left-right debate because of corruption charges being levelled at Boris Johnson. See below.
25th April - Frank n' Furter, red triangle on costume, Columbia and Magenta ordered to help RiffRaff
We are trying to identify this red triangle - any suggestions are welcome. Makes sense to link the red triangle to a pharmaceutical company at this point. But which one? The red triangle was associated with political prisoners (Schutzhäftlinge – Sch.) this links Frank with communism, an incredibly frightening thing for Brad and Janet.
Reader (LisaLoo) Hot Take: Link triangle to vaccine passports
Post-Prediction Update: These ''Six Days of Debate'' seems to be playing out across America but we should also include BLM and police reform as another fault-line between the left and the right, woke or un-woke or whatever.
26th April - Frank greets Brad and Janet again, Frank patronises them with a little laugh and then some French
Interaction between Democrats and Republicans over the border issue (and possibly at the border) and/or the covid-relief bill. Conservatives want to focus on traditional infrastructure but they badly need support in areas ravished by either climate effects, Covid itself, or the economic effects of the disease.
Pre-Prediction Update: Pink Moon
Post-Prediction Note: Kamala avoids border issue
Post-Prediction Note: Oscars as divider between woke, non-woke etc.
27th April - Frank passes them the clothes to make them feel less vulnerable
The Democrats give in to some of the Republican demands, but its kind of titular or symbolic in nature.
Post-Prediction Note: Oscar for best actor goes to Anthony Hopkins and not Chadwick Boseman causing some controversy.
I honestly thought this was going to be more about actual politics but looking at the prediction ''symbolic'' or ''titular'' in nature an Oscar seems perfect. So basically the narrative is that on this ''black-white'', ''liberal-conservative'' ''divide'' there has been a lot of ''wins'' for the ''progressives'' (?) recently so they give an Oscar to an old white guy who doesn't even turn up instead of a young dead black guy as a token offering.
Post-Prediction Note: Biden lifts outdoors mask wearing
Again, see utterly titular and symbolic deference to the right.
28th April - Frank says they have offered hospitality, Brad gets upset and all they asked for was to use of phone
The Republicans say the old line about paying taxes to the Federal Government so the Federal Government should do its job and pay back to those who have paid in. This from a group that have systematically run down Government programs over the years. ''All they want is the phone'' effectively relates to basic services.
29th April - Franks says she is impressed by Brad's dominance and that Janet must be awfully proud of him
Brad is the dominant republican figure at this time. I do not know who will play Brad because I have very little knowledge of conservative politics. So who is Brad during this bit would help a lot. Ted Cruz and his wife?
Post-Prediction Note - GOP's Tim Scott delivered rebuttal
Ok it was this guy, Tim Scott, that delivered the rebuttal. He warned against ''socialist dreams''.
Post-Prediction Note - This all clearly relates to Biden's address at Congress over the recovery plan. However, these images are so strikingly synched that maybe our timing and characterization is coming a little unstuck?
30th April - Frank asks ''do you have any tatoos?'' RiffRaff slopes over menancingly
Chitter chatter continues - liberals and conservatives bond over tattoos? Digital tattoos? We think this could be a very literal signal.
Post-Prediction Update - Biden, Harris agree with Scott (America not Racist)
Post-Prediction Update - Murder Suspect in Atlanta with RISK tattoo on his neck who escaped from police is caught in the bushes
1st May - Frank speech begins to the unconventional conventionalists
Is Labour Day a clue? Is this related to the red triangle? Ties us back to socialism?
Pre-Prediction Note - Beltane
Pre-Prediction Note - Did this already happen? See above Biden speech to Congress
Pre-Prediction Note - 30th April Tarantula Venom Based Therapy treatment for Type 2 Diabetes
''I knew Leo. G. Carroll was over a barrel when Tarantula ran to the hills...'' Science Fiction, Double Feature.
Well how 'bout that? Type 2 Diabetes affects 30-40 million Americans. This news, whether this is set dressing or the big one, has the potential to make all those people and their partners and families think about Tarantulas.
Post-Prediction Note (UPDATE) - Elliot Page on Oprah Winfrey Transition Surgery ''Life-saving''
''Life-saving'' Transition Surgery so I guess its very literal again. Trans person discusses life saving medicine.
Post-Prediction Note (UPDATE) - Caitlyn Jenner says Transgender Athletes born male should not play on girl's teams
Well I guess the Sweet Transvestite now represents both sides of the argument. Its going to be interesting to see how the right wing roll with this. Oh I know, I've seen the film. A jump to the left, a step to the right.
2nd May - Franks says there will be new paradigm in biomedical research and ''paradise will be mine''
Paradise could be the signal word here (or words like Eden, Heaven). Maybe they have some even cooler nanomedicine?
Apocalypse Squad Hot Take: A company called Lucky (see below) wanted to mine Paradise Valley near Yellowstone for Gold. This was defeated in court at the end of 2020. Is this a play on ''Paradise will be mined?'' Based on the upcoming ''Sword of Damocles'' moment in the film it looks like gold price will sky-rocket and fluctuate maniacally for 8 days or so. Will this change minds on mining?
3rd May - Franks waxes poetic about suddenly you get a break and all of the pieces fall into place
This implies that luck was involved in whatever the medical research story that is broached will be. How much luck was involved in those monkey hybrids, you think?
Post Prediction Note (UPDATE) - Bill and Melinda Gates Breakup after 27 years of marriage
Marriage described as irretrievably broken.
''And then suddenly you get a break - and all the pieces seem to fit into place - what a sucker you'd been, what a fool - the answer was there all the time....'' Dr Frank n' Furter
Apocalypse Squad Hot Take: Luck - Paradise - Mine
4th May - Accidents were involved in the discovery, the word accident is repeated by Columbia and Magenta -
You created an alien-human hybrid? You discovered the force is real? Srsly?
Post-Prediction Note (Update) - Mexico City Train Collapse
5th May - That is how they discovered the secret ingredient that is the spark that is the breath of life.
You created an android? The Breath of Life.
Post-Prediction Note (UPDATE): SpaceX successfully lands ship
Post-Prediction Note (UPDATE): Falling Chinese Rocket
Post-Prediction Note (UPDATE): CIA Woke Ad i.e. ''Secret'' ingredient
Dr X News.
6th May - And now they have the secret to life itself, everyone applauds
For those of you interested in this sub-meta-theory we've realised that we can back-check Clash of the Titans and confirm that this was the first movie used for structuring the year (2020). It's a bit of an effort so it may well be a little time in coming. If you want to do it yourself its the same principle divide the film length by 365. Our working theory would be Perseus (various actors, but all and sundry in our more or less successful fights against...) Medusa (COVID-19) & Cetus (The Leviathan or Climate Change Disasters). You will not have to even break sweat to identify the main capricious Gods and distressed Andromedas I would think . Cursory analysis suggests this will work effectively and implies that throughout the whole of last year we could have done the same as we are doing this year but with that script lying alongside the Qabalah.
The owls are not what they seem...
You're very lucky to be invited up to Franks' laboratory, some people would give their right arm for the privilege.
