So, I am in class last term, and I cannot think of the name of The Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon, a special phenomenon in which you don't notice something until it comes into your consciousness. Like, say, I have never heard of M.I.A. the musical artist. I do not believe I have seen her name mentioned anywhere or heard her music or seen videos or anything. But then someone tells me about her, and suddenly she's everywhere. I see her name everywhere. I hear one of her songs while in the mall. I see a video in Best Buy playing on a TV for sale.
Thing is, how do you Google search for The Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon unless you remember the name of it?
Synchronicity sort of works. And Carl Jung (You know that I am a huge Jungian, right?) coined the term. Jung used the concept to justify the paranormal.
Thanks to my friend Gregg Morris for reminding me about the "Plate of Shrimp" speech from Repo Man as seen here. Sound on this one is not great. If you want better sound, search the title I use here and there's a better clip on You Tube.

"The more you drive, the less intelligent you are."
"It's all part of the cosmic unconsciousness."
Reflect and connect.
Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.
Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.
