Thirty-Three Days cover

The fifteenth book from Australian novelist Steven B. King (out of a total of twenty-five) is about Jenny, a university lecturer who's consciousness has traveled back in time to her younger body because a contemporary of her younger self plans to release a genetically modified version of wheat that is destined to mutate, causing the destruction of all plant life on Earth. A relationship develops between Jenny and the well-intentioned microbiologist she must persuade, but she can remain in the past no longer than thirty-three days. If she fails, a second time-traveller will be dispatched to kill the unfortunate scientist. Sandra Daily reviewed the book for Goodreads. "This is a time travel book unlike any I’ve read before," wrote Dailey. "Its uniqueness was refreshing. The story is serious in the way that the heroine has the survival of the planet on her shoulders. The romance didn’t overshadow or take a backseat to the drama, it became part of it. The author’s art of dialogue and description is vivid." THIRTY-THREE DAYS is available in Kindle, Audiobook, or Paperback.

Catch Thirty-Three by Meshuggah

First released on 16 May 2005, CATCH THIRTY-THREE is Swedish heavy metal band Meshuggah's fifth album. The album is a continuous suite with thirteen movements, and employed Toontrack's "Drumkit from Hell" synthesizer instead of traditional acoustic drums. Eduardo Rivadavia, reviewing the album for AllMusic, said (in part): " doing away with the rigid formality (real or perceived) of individual song breaks, the band has bolstered its confidence for exploring ambient sounds and quieter dynamics. "In Death -- Is Death" offers the prime example with its interspersed bouts of noise and silence, but the adventurousness continues over uncharacteristically melodic portions of "Dehumanization" and the mild case of electronics and programming (as well as robotic voices) heard on "Mind's Mirrors." And whatever your opinion about all of these conspiracy theories, there's no question that on "Shed," with its tribal percussion and whispered vocals, Meshuggah deliver a masterful career highlight." The album is available on CD, and on most streaming services.

THE 33

The 33 - poster

Released in 2015, THE 33 is a two hour and seven minute docudrama about the collapse of a gold and copper mine in Chile on 5 August 2010. Thirty-three miners who worked the San José Mine in Copiapó were trapped seven hundred metres underground for sixty-nine days. The miners, led by Mario Sepúlveda (Antonio Banderas), all survived. Mine foreman Luis Urzúa (Lou Diamond Phillips) had warned mine owner, Carlos Castillo (Mario Zaragoza), about the mine's instability. On the surface after the collapse, María Segovia (Juliette Binoche), elder sister of trapped miner Dario Segovia (Juan Pablo Raba), led a vigil. Directed by Patricia Riggen, THE 33 can be purchased from most VOD outlets, and is also available on DVD and Blu-Ray. The film's last scene shows, in black and white, the real 33 miners gathered on a beach, and credits each of them individually.

Trente-trois - French Edition

In Paris, in October 1804, the Comte de Grasse-Tilly created the Supreme Council of the Thirty-three Degrees of Scotland. Two centuries later, and although the first Sovereign Grand Commander often found himself in opposition to all the rites then practiced in France, the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite continued to prosper to become the most practiced rite in the world. In this book, author Jean-Pierre Bayard presents the grades of the AASR and shows us that Masonic symbols have the same expression as those of all the other traditions, that their spiritual contribution can bring real help to our civilization which is losing the notion of fraternity and humanism.


Smashing Pumpkins - 33

"Speak to me in a language I can hear
Humor me before I have to go
Deep in thought I forgive everyone
As the cluttered streets greet me once again
I know I can't be late, supper's waiting on the table
Tomorrow's just an excuse away
So I pull my collar up and face the cold, on my own
The earth laughs beneath my heavy feet
At the blasphemy in my old jangly walk
Steeple guide me to my heart and home
The sun is out and up and down again"

In March, 2021, NME reported that the Smashing Pumpkins began recording a new 33-song album that will be the joint sequel to their 1995 LP ‘Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness’ and their two 2000-released ‘Machina’ records. Frontman Billy Corgan described it as "kind of a rock opera"
