While I agree the correlations were amazing, I still think it was a coincidence. We started the album at different intervals, up to 15 seconds apart each direction, and some thing matched up perfectly with a different interval, but others memorable moments were way off depending on the interval.
Money starting right when the film goes to color was always a trip. My favorite parts where when the lyrics were singing about the Lunatic, right when the Scarecrow is acting like a mad man, and the lyric "Round and Round...And Round," which at one point matched perfectly with the close up of Dorothy spinning her shinny red shoes around, and around.
We didn't have cable in college, and owned two movies, so we did this often. One time, the cd changer moved to the next album while we continued watching the movie (since everyone was too enthralled to move). We swore that album (which I don't recall) matched up with the next 45 minutes of the film perfectly as well. That is why I believe it is a coincidence. You can play any stoner album with any sci-fi film or childrens film, and come up with these amazing correlations, if you are really fucked up. Ah college.

This is why I never believed the whole thing.
Based on this discussion, I think my next creative goal will be too soundtrack an album to a classic film, but not tell anyone, then see if anybody figures out the correlation. I'm sure that will fail, but it's worth a try.

If it were just the rhythm matching up I might think it's a coincidence, but the lyrics explicitly describe what is happening in the film too many times. And then there's the heartbeat at the end, as they're listening for the Tin Man's heart.
