these guys have been fascinated with the numbers 9/11 since 1941 to my knowledge.

The Pentagon





the Pentagon breaks ground 9/11/1941... exactly 60 years later it's attacked

I don't care about those guys, I am focused on the Lebowski example...

The film's structure has been compared to Raymond Chandler's novel, The Big Sleep. The original score was composed by Carter Burwell, a longtime collaborator of the Coen Brothers.

IF 3ptshooter is telling the truth, there were several times in "The Big Sleep" where 9-11 was used in the movie...and the Coens used it on that check to pay homage to the movie...

okay, so assuming 3pt didn't make that up...we are DONE talking about that scene

sorry, they also chose that along with the movies home alone, independance day and that vern guy.

and why exactly? makes no sense.

coincidences happen.
coincidences DO happen...but that is one hell of a coincidence...

how could the only band on the planet named after the world trade center have track 11 named SEPTEMBER???

I do NOT know why anyone would choose anyone, or why anything like that, none of it makes sense, I agree...but even if it was a kid's band at some high school I would say they are psychic...

that is just a shit load of coincidence...

Oh yea.... nevermind the fact that George Bush Sr. is on TV on that scene... and nevermind his notorious NWO speech on 9/11/1991.... which is the ENTIRE DATE on that check... (1991)

yea... I'm sure they were just paying homage to the 1939 film because they used it then.

anything they did after that day means nothing...it could be named "there is no bin laden"...that wouldn't mean anything but them playing off the hype they got from that track

they are talking about the first bombing, which was ALSO Bin Laden...

that one is too obvious to even be a coincidence...it is just a movie playing off the first bonbing...there is nothing there...

Biggie's song is ALSO in reference to the first bombing..."blow up like the world trade..."


honestly those suck....the band one, and the Simpsons episode are the only 2 worth a shit so far, and I haven't seen the Simpson's episode yet

Hey Dooms,

What is the conspiracy world's take on 911 being the numbers to call an emergency?

3ptShooter, you weren't joking about that right?...you didn't just make that up did you?

no, i wasn't joking. it's a fact that lebowski was twisted homage/parody of the big sleep:

How much did "The Big Sleep" influence "The Big Lebowski"?
Joel Coen: We wanted to do a Chandler kind of story - how it moves episodically, and deals with the characters trying to unravel a mystery. As well as having a hopelessly complex plot that's ultimately unimportant.

Ethan: And there was something attractive about having the main character not be a private eye, but just some pothead intuitively figuring out the ins and outs of an elaborate intrigue. And then there's Walter, whose instincts are always wrong.

Quote:
With The Big Lebowski, Joel and Ethan Coen are riffing on Raymond Chandler's The Big Sleep. The similarities are striking and helpful in figuring out what's going on in this movie: both The Big Sleep and The Big Lebowski start off with a visit to a crippled/ill millionaire and then become a search for the truth behind a blackmailing/kidnapping effort. The titles themselves, however, indicate the differences you'll find: in one, you get the gravity of "the big sleep" and in the other you get a nonsensical phrase, "the big Lebowski."

as to the gulf war and bush connection:

What's the attraction of setting the film specifically in 1991?
Ethan: Well, setting the film during the Gulf War was an opportunity to have Walter gas about something -

Joel: That's the main reason.

Ethan: And it's more attractive to make something time specific than just present day, because -

Joel: - because just what is present day?

also, those dates have '4' in them, and in Eastern cultures '4' is a homonym for death and of extreme bad luck. Buildings often do not have a fourth floor.
