St. Paul's Cathedral
I guess this is a post in progress. I keep finding myself returning to St. Paul's Cathedral, but with tons of questions and no answers. We of course, heard that great version of the song "St. Paul" in Rotten Apple 101.
Long before that, I had made the observation that the layout of St. Paul's Cathedral in London pictured below...
...reminded me of this frequent still in Rotten Apple videos
No shock there and no real connection. But it also reminded me of the cover of Liverpool Sound College when turned on its side.
All very loose connections, I admit. St. Paul's Cathedral in London turned up again in a posting from Jude on the "Nothing is Real" discussion group. After noting that Iamaphoney has for quite some time listed the number 80020902 (which could be interpreted as September 2, 2008) on his YouTube pages, he speculated about the two coincidental fires and copied this from Wiki:
"The Great Fire of London was a major conflagration that swept through the central parts of London, England, from Sunday, 2 September to Wednesday, 5 September 1666. The fire gutted the medieval City of London inside the old Roman City Wall. It threatened, but did not reach, the aristocratic district of Westminster (the modern West End), Charles II's Palace of Whitehall, and most of the suburban slums. It consumed 13,200 houses, 87 parish churches, St. Paul's Cathedral, and most of the buildings of the City authorities. It is estimated that it destroyed the homes of 70,000 of the City's ca. 80,000 inhabitants."
The obvious, although far-fetched implication would be "Is there going to be a fire at St. Paul's Cathedral on September 2, 2008?"
And if so, which one? There is the one in London, but there is one in San Diego as well. Both have architecture that may or may not match some of the interior and exterior shots in Rotten Apple 101. Does anyone know if either of these cathedrals were shown in Rotten Apple 101 or any of the other Iamaphoney videos? I especially would like to know where this scene was shot.
The St. Paul's Cathedral in London is undergoing a major renovation. They are also doing an extremely Beatley-type event in November, 2008 (another mark on the Iamaphoney significant date calendar!) You have to see this to believe it. It's right up there with the John Lennon Peace Light Tower. Check out the link below:
