Magnolia's Philip Seymour Hoffman Found Dead

A talented actor who has appeared in several Fortean films has died. A star in many films, including Magnolia, The Master, and Hunger Games, Philip Seymour Hoffman has been found dead. (See more on the twilight language of The Master here.)

The Wall Street Journal has posted:
Award-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead Sunday afternoon in his New York City apartment, a law-enforcement official said.

The New York Police Department is investigating, and the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner to determine exact cause of death. The official said Mr. Hoffman, 46 years old, was found dead at his apartment at 35 Bethune St. in the West Village neighborhood of Manhattan.

Mr. Hoffman won the Academy Award for Best Actor for the 2005 film, "Capote."

The meaning of Bethune is "House of God."
The New York Post noted:
Oscar-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead of an apparent drug overdose — in the bathroom with a hypodermic needle still in his arm — inside a Greenwich Village home on Sunday morning, cops said.

Wikipedia's early life information details the following:
Hoffman was born in Fairport, New York. His mother, Marilyn O'Connor (née Loucks), who was born in Waterloo, New York, is a family court judge, lawyer, and civil rights activist. His father, Gordon Stowell Hoffman, is a former Xerox executive. He had two sisters, Jill and Emily, and a brother, Gordy Hoffman, who scripted the 2002 film Love Liza, in which Philip starred. He had German, English, Irish, Dutch, and remote Polish, ancestry. His father was Protestant and his mother Catholic; Hoffman was not raised with a deep commitment to any denomination. Hoffman's parents divorced when he was nine years old.
Hoffman attended the 1984 Theater School at the New York State Summer School of the Arts. After graduating from Fairport High School, Hoffman attended the Circle in the Square Theatre's summer program, continuing his acting training with the acting teacher Alan Langdon. He received a BFA in drama in 1989 from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts. At NYU, he was a founding member of the theater company the Bullstoi Ensemble with actor Steven Schub and director Bennett Miller. Soon after graduating, he went to rehab for drug and alcohol addiction and remained sober until May 2013, when he entered a detox facility after briefly relapsing.

He had a death hoax earlier in the week. And now he died on Candlemas, a day marked by the kindling of sacred fires. And he was in the new Hunger Games movie Catching Fire.

Did you know 2014 is the year of the horse? 

Did you know Phillip is Greek for "friend of horses"? Paul Walker was killed in a car accident as a passenger in Porsche. The symbol of a Porsche is a horse.

New Years Eve we lost the beloved Uncle Phil, James Avery.

3 days later we lost Phil Everly part of the famous Everly Brothers Band.

February 2, SuperBowl Sunday a team involved is represented by a horse.

Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow.

Phillip Seymour dies as a result of a heroin overdose.

And remember, being on heroin is known as riding the horse.

Great comments! Loren can't catch everything (although he catches a lot!).

Most of this isn't my personal brainstorming*, but the correlations freaked me out some! I'll be repeating some of the above...

-The name 'Philip' means horse.
-Philip Seymour Hoffman died of a heroin overdose. Heroin has a street slang term of 'horse' or even 'white horse'.
-on the day of the Super Bowl, the Denver Broncos (white horse team logo) get 'slaughtered'

His death also occurred on the auspicious 33rd day of the year (33rd degree Freemasonry, et al occult numerology).

There are also Sochi opening ceremony connections with horse symbolism and featuring a singer named, coincidentally, 'Philip Phillips'.

Also, for those playing the eschatology home game, an Antichrist contender Prince WillIAM also has a 'Philip' in his name.
