Hendrix and the asteroid movie boom of the late '90s: Michael Fairchild explains the connection

While we were researching asteroid movies for Monday's honorary tribute to Earth's near collision with an oncoming asteroid, one thing was pretty apparent: In the late '90s there were a relative shit-ton of asteroid/meteorite/comet/basic space-junk-getting-hurled-at-Earth movies. Turns out, Michael Fairchild, author of Rock Prophesy, Hendrix researcher for the Experience Music Project in Seattle and former author of liner notes for many of Hendrix's CDs, already noticed Hollywood's obsession with space rocks and had an inkling why this occurrence took place -- and it all links back to Jimi Hendrix, Paul Allen and Microsoft. Also, it's pretty weird.


The theory is pretty complex, so here's a basic outline:
  • Michael Fairchild was hired to work on a movie about Hendrix, which was set to come out in the mid-nineties. He was also working with the Experience Music Project Museum in Seattle, putting together research.
  • Fairchild sent the transcript of his book, about Hendrix's fascination with asteroids and his prophetic theories, to the Library of Congress right before. . .
  • Fairchild lost his directorial status in the film and his work fell through on the project at the museum when Paul Allen funded a lawsuit filed by Al Hendrix, Jimi Hendrix's father, to break the contract with the company Fairchild worked with and instead signed a contract with him.
  • Paul Allen, who is the co-founder of Microsoft with Bill Gates, got a hold of Fairchild's manscript during the process of settling the lawsuit. He was connnected with Dreamworks, and consequently gave money to the production of Asteroid, Deep Impact and Armageddon just six months later.

Some people attribute the spike in asteroid movies to a response in public interest in the 1994 occurrence of an asteroid hitting Jupiter, Fairchild writes on his website, but those people are wrong: The asteroid movie craze was in direct response to the theories posited by Hendrix in his unpublished work, which were essentially stolen and manipulated by Paul Allen and Microsoft, according to Fairchild. In case you're still a bit confused (I am), here's some answers from the man behind the theory, Michael Fairchild:

Whoa! This is complicated.  I figure "they" just won't tell anyone, since there isn't a way to stop these things from happening.  Panic will kill.  About Jimi..I'll have to reread that part :)


This article is timely given the passing of Asteroid 2011 MD  (MD = Mass Destruction? Mass Delusion?) on Monday, which came within 7500 miles of Earth, extremely close. In the ‘90s I was employed by the official Hendrix production company, Are You Experienced? Ltd. Paul Allen targeted that company with bogus litigation because I was to be the company's next Creative Director for Jimi's estate, the next project was to be Rock Prophecy. Paul Allen spent over $5 million to stop that (pocket change to him).

This article appeared on June 29, the anniversary of Jimi's fabulous concert at the Denver Pop Festival on June 29, 1969. The soundtrack audio is on youtube, and my website shows 2 great film videos of Jimi in Denver - his LAST ever show with the original "Experience." The video starts with scenes of tear gas exploding in the arena, as a riot breaks out during Jimi's last Experience show. People with him at the time report how they were all on a great acid trip, but the JHE band was trapped in a van to exit Mile High Stadium with rioters rocking the vehicle as they waded through the crowd mayhem.

The June 29th date is one coincidence, another is the use of the term "miraculous intervention" in my Q&A answers (I wrote that last night). At 9:59 pm (est) tonight on ABC TV they used that term, and on-screen text spelled it out "Miraculous Intervention", to advertise their show about "Twintuition" - extrasensory perception (e.s.p.), an issue at the center of Jimi's "remote view" prediction. 

When Hendrix said in 1969 "I see miracles every day now" he referred to the continuing onrush of improbable coincidences that really do mark his story. I keep a record of the continuing "pre-cognition" of incidents I envision prior to their actual happening. This reality brings into question our notions of space/time and place in the Creation. Extra Sensory Perception is what possessed Jimi to an extreme degree. That those who study him discover this "hidden" reality opens the doors to relentless persecution from dominators like Paul Allen who are determined to erase all evidence of "remote view" capability. Thus they produce movies like "Men Who Stare At Goats" (2010 with George Clooney) to train us to regard e.s.p. as the province of delusional flakes. But for those of us (like Jimi) who undergospontaneous precognition on a regular basis, these dominator detractors seem like the Savages of the First Century that they really are.

What a pity Jimi had to live among them, and die by them.
