Our friend Mike has suddenly hinted that something might happen on May 1, now.
The thing that we are calling the schedule on the Iamaphoney YouTube Channel has been modified again.
If you recall, there had been an entry indicating that something would happen on April 9, 2008. Nothing did.
There is also an exclamation mark (!) presumably in the place of the interview that did not happen on April 10, 2008.
April 11, 2008 is probably for the Rotten Apple 9 Q video which appeared on that date.
All other entries between April 11 and June 1 (the date of the Paul McCartney concert in Liverpool) are ambiguous.
We were all geared up for the big interview on April 10 and what a strange day it was.
Remember that day?
99% sure it will happen tonight.
Four hour delay on Iamaphoney's plane from the West Indies, but 100% sure it will happen tonight.
1% sure it will happen tonight.
this weekend %50
next week 80%
this month 99%
Now he says May 1, which by all accounts is not this month.
But Mike has shown not only great patience, but great dignity and class throughout this whole thing. He really deserves to be the guy who scored the Iamaphoney interview if it ever happens. I think he has allowed himself to be jerked around a little bit for the sake of art.
I do understand those who are asking, "If Mike already submitted his questions in video format a month ago, why would there be a delay of any kind and why would there be all this build up as if it were a live interactive chat?"
I don't know the answer to any of those questions. But, like Mike, I remain intrigued enough to stay for the duration. And like most of you, I am completely aware that the interview is not the end game. There will be more speculation, more conjecture and certainly more ambiguity.
So we still have no interview, but we do have the new video the rotten apple - 9 q
It is a bit more heavy handed that your usual Iamaphoney videos. There are more clips from the Magic Christian movie and more connections to serial killers. I am continuing to analyze this and will have more to say in later posts. I love the interpretations so far that appeared in the comments of the last post: Everything from "Iamaphoney is still getting it [the interview] ready for you" to Iamaphoney is causing us to jump into raw sewage and laughing about it. One does not exclude the other.
I am hoping that the delay is an artistic choice and not caused by something else. Iamaphoney did appear to receive a threat in the middle of all the interview hype, although it was indirect and ambiguous.
The threat appeared in the comments of a video by Happy Show Host Matt Hawes, who has done three PID-related Videos. This latest video was posted during the interview hysteria of last week and it gives a plug to Iamaphoney.
The comment came from MilesDeo, the one who started posting on "Nothing Is Real" recently.
The video was called Did Paul McCartney of THE BEATLES Really Die in 1966? and here is the comment from MilesDeo (posted 1 week ago):
Have you noticed that IAAP (and "iamaphoney" is not a 'guy' it's a group, but you already have figured that I would guess) have used clips from the Happy Show in the Rotten Apple Series?
IAAP.. they should be very afraid.
No physical danger of course. :)
Nice show Matt. 5*s
Last month LupaMorna posted on YouTube a "She Loves You" - New Stereo Version - The Beatles and milesdeo commented:

Vish-pyre, vish-pyre; the sun will be black as pitch! But the fruit will not rot and wither away; neither will the tents of those who are full of trust and love.
So I guess we will see where all this leads.
