"One of the smallest , independent kingdoms in the ciberuniverse. Nothing fancy. Population? Just me, myself and my jaguars, my movies and my books (and, at this very moment, YOU). Hided and secret like Skull Island or Opar, the ancients in Guelyland use to read the scrools of a minor god called Voor-Hes.
Most of the treasures of Guelyland are made of paper, plastic and vinyl.Guelyland dreams with expanding in deep more then in surface. The music of Nik Kershaw has been heard here. There are apes, lots of apes in Guelyland. Woody Allen and Bob Hope visit it quite often. Here we love books (the Kingdoms Library is both celebrated and secret) Here we are atheists but very tolerant and think of god a bit too often and much. Guelyland is, the stuff my dreams are made of..."

Coincidences are noticed a posteriori. Somewhere around last december i bought the DVD of The Darjeeling Limited (Wes Anders, 2007) and i just watched it this morning. After that i took my lunch and put another disc. This time The Virgin Suicides (Sofia Coppola,2000) purchased a couple of days ago. So here is the coincidence, second unit director Roman Coppola and checking the credits Jason Schwartzman is in both movies. Come on, where's little Jason in Sofia's film? I know him well. I check the "making of" on the DVD and yes is that little cool guy son of a mob or something. I didn't know he was part of the "Coppola Clan" (Sofia's cousin).
So? Not big deal. But this happens to me all the time actually. Like five days ago i watched Phase IV (Saul Bass,1974) and after that The Island of Dr. Moreau (Don Taylor, 1977) and in both was Nigel Davenport, and actor i didn't recognice before (only his very british names)And the list goes on. Do i watch a lot of films? Yes. Kind of. But i don't select them for the secondary actor's in them. I bet this happen to many people and there is no mistery to it because it's just a coincidence. I'm sure there a more coincidences that we never notice happening around our lives and much, much more "non coincidences" if there's such a thing. I just can't avoid to getting a happy kick out of it when it happens and i see it.
P.D. But as they say, twice is an accident, three is a coincidence.
