Sockdolager Punch Poppe

The Deaths in 2017 lists under
  • Brian Taylor (19 June 1932 – 12 June 2017) 
His birthday is an addition to the "Notable Day" pattern-cluster, and June 19 is notable because the birthday of this blog is June 19, 2012... and so will be five years old in just 6 days.  Keep in mind that the inner twin world influenced this blog as well as the date of the first post.  And speaking of birthdays, today is my 60th birthday.  The first post to this blog re, Censoring Around the Death of Michael Jackson (RIIP),  also involves the MacGregor's who have featured in many of my posts over the past week.

This is not the first time that the surname Taylor has cropped up... it's etymology comes from "tailor", butt the "y" in place of "i" in the word is strategic, designed to communicate "why".  In answering the "why", I turn to the online etymology dictionary and key in "Taylor" to the search box, expecting nothing to crop up given the obvious "misspelling", butt it did bring up something:
  • hawkshaw (n.) "detective," 1866, U.S. slang, from name of the detective in "The Ticket-of-Leave Man," 1863 play by English dramatist Tom Taylor (1817-1880); it later was used in the comic strip "Hawkshaw the Detective" (1913-1947) by U.S. cartoonist Gus Mager (1878-1956).     
First of all, "Hawkshaw" breaks down into "hawk shaw" and this in turn deciphers as "sell wood/would".  The "sell" in place of hawk comes from one of its etymology definitions:
The name Tom Taylor stands out: his first and last name is an addition to the "Alliteration" pattern-cluster, and the etymology (origins) of the name Tom is "twin", which is a particular inner twin world trade mark signature.  We have been given a double... twin heads up.  So venturing to Tom's wiki page, the first paragraph reads:
Tom Taylor (19 October 1817 – 12 July 1880) was an English dramatist, critic, biographer, public servant, and editor of Punch magazine. He wrote about 100 plays during his career, including Our American Cousin (1858), famous as the play which was being performed in the presence of US President Abraham Lincoln when he was assassinated in 1865.
The US is considered by Canadians as "our American Cousin".  So another heads up.  Note from the play's wiki page:
The play's most famous performance was at Ford's Theatre in Washington, D.C.. on April 14, 1865. Halfway through Act III, Scene 2, the character of Asa Trenchard, played that night by Harry Hawk, utters this line, considered one of the play's funniest, to Mrs. . Mountchessington:
  • "Don't know the manners of good society, eh? Well, I guess I know enough to turn you inside out, old gal — you sockdologizing old man-trap" 
 Note from Harry Hawk's wiki page:
  • Harry Hawk (April 28, 1837 - May 28, 1916) 
His birthday and date of death generate an "April 28, May 28, __/28th Day, Month Sequence" pattern-cluster.  Bridging the June 28 gap ... using the formula  as per usual we arrive at:
  • Jane Birdwood, Baroness Birdwood (18 May 1913 – 28 June 2000),
  • Nils Poppe (31 May 1908 – 28 June 2000)
And do note the "wood" in the surname Birdwood.  Both need further investigating.  On investigating  Jane Birdwood the following crop up:
  • Christopher Bromhead Birdwood, 2nd Baron Birdwood  (22 May 1899 – 5 January 1962
  •  William Riddell Birdwood, 1st Baron Birdwood(13 September 1865 – 17 May 1951) 
It may not seem like much until you have another important piece of the puzzle: Rob MacGregor's birthday is May 16!! The MacGregor's synchrosecrets blog verifies this ... at least it does at the moment, butt they have been known to censor their blog to thwart the inner twin world.  Still, if you key "Happy Birthday Rob " in this blogs search box, enough posts and relevant facts crop up to serve as further proof.  And so we now have a "May 16, 17, 18/  Date Sequence" pattern-cluster.   With May 22 also cropping up, I consider this a prompt for us to investigate the next day in the sequence closest to May 22, so using the formula note from the May 19 wiki page :
Alexey Petrovich Maresyev  ( 20 May 1916 – 19 May 2001)
So what are the chances, we now have a "May 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, _, 22, 23/
 Date Sequence" pattern-cluster .  I included May 23 given that it's a significant day to the inner twin world scheme of things since its the day of the year where 222 days remain... sequences of 2's being another particular inner twin trade mark signature. Perhaps you would like to take up the task of investigating the May 21st gap... Rob ?!

On investigating Nils Poppe ... and because he's an actor, the 4 films in his list of filmography that have wiki pages need investigating:
The films will reveal more as per the inner twin world's communication, and because this would require checking out the birth/death death of each cast/crew, the work would be fairly extensive, and even though I did the "quick" check,  I decided to set  aside the more labour intensive gathering and posting the info ... at least for now.  To ensure that it gets done, you may want to take up the task and provide the info in the comments section of this blog.

Going back now to Harry Hawk's line in Tom Taylor's play where he used the word  "sockdologizing".  I have never heard of it before now, butt it sure  smacks of inner twin world influence, note from the Sockdolager wiki page:
Nonce word,[1] from sockdolager + -ize + -ing. Coined 1858 by Tom Taylor for the play Our American Cousin. Taylor presumably learned sockdolager from Dictionary of Americanisms (1848) by John Russell Bartlett 
I'm familiar with Bartlett since he is an etymologist and because the inner twin world have influenced the origin of words/names so that they contain the cryptic elements used in communicating to us here and now.  Note from the wiki page of John Bartlett:
  • John Russell Bartlett (October 23, 1805 – May 28, 1886)  
So Hawk had died on the anniversary of Bartlett's  death, hence generating a "May 28(x2)" pattern-cluster.
  1. (US, slang, obsolete) a hard hit, a knockout or finishing blow

  • 1831, James Kirke Paulding, Lion of the West: He’ll come off as badly as a feller I once hit a sledge hammer lick over the head—a real sogdolloger.
  • 1838, James Fenimore Cooper, Home as Found: There is but one ‘sogdollager’ in the universe, and that is in Lake Oswego.
  • 1859, Bartlett's Dictionary of Americanisms "I gave the fellow a socdolager over his head with the barrel of my gun,"
  • 1884, Mark Twain, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, Chapter 20.The thunder would go rumbling and grumbling away, and quit—and then rip comes another flash and another sockdologer.
 2. (US, slang, obsolete) something exceptional, a whopper
  • 1953, Ray Bradbury, The MurdererHey, Al, thought I'd call you from the locker room out here at Green Hills. Just made a sockdolager hole in one! A hole in one, Al! (etc.)
3. (US, fishing) A combination of two hooks which close upon each other, by means of a spring, as soon as the fish bites.
Note from the wiki pages of those mentioned in the above:
  • James Kirke Paulding (August 22, 1778 – April 6, 1860) 
  • James Fenimore Cooper (September 15, 1789 – September 15, 1851) 
  • Samuel Langhorne Clemens (November 30, 1835 – April 21, 1910) Mark Twain
  • Ray Douglas Bradbury (August 22, 1920 – June 5, 2012)
 We now have an "August 22(x2)" and a "September 15(x2) pattern-cluster... and where there are two there's a 3rd... just use the formula.  And Mark Twain's date of death is another addition to the "Identical Number Sequence" pattern-cluster given that it's the 111th day of the year.  So there's much investigating that you need to do, and you should hurry  ... before it's too late to adequately prepare for the bigg Sockdolager Punch Poppe  !!
