A hodgepodge today...
Just some random thoughts about this ARG (Alternate Reality Game) business.
Someone suggested that in terms of Iamaphoney, the Alternate Reality Game scenario is the only one that makes sense logically. I disagree with that slightly. My opinion is that the ARG scenario is another of the ever growing list of scenarios that don't make sense logically. I have yet to find a scenario that makes sense.
There is no question that once the suitcase entered the picture it became a game. But has it always been one? I don't know much about Alternate Reality Games. Does it generally take over a year and nearly 100 videos to get one going? If this is the answer, I do think that the Paul Is Dead rumor and the music of John, Paul, George and Ringo, collectively and individually, make an excellent playing field. I would choose to be a spectator instead of a player. From the looks of a recent post, I think that 65if2007 feels the same way. However, if the truth be told, I still envy him for finding that briefcase. YES, I know it is a briefcase and not a suitcase.
Perhaps this all started when a guy named Bill (AKA Iamaphoney #1), joined Nothing Is Real a couple years ago and said he wanted to get to the bottom of the Paul Is Dead mystery. Then a Beatles insider murdered him and started making stylized videos with the intention of gradually revealing the secret. Then the Tavistock Institute found out and started adding subliminal cuts into his IMovie creations which eventually caused his brain to be reprogrammed. Once the transformation was made and Iamaphoney #2 became a vegetable, Iamaphoney #3 started a campaign destroy all credibility by pretending that it was all an Alternate Reality Game.
I have no idea of what the deal is with this video that showed up on YouTube. Why would low resolution black & white IAAP material be found on a sub-board?
Back on earth it looks like Paul McCartney is gearing up for another flurry of activity. He added another concert date fueling rumors of a full tour. The talk of a new album is particularly interesting. He is working with Youth (member of Killing Joke and his partner on the two Fireman projects) but his freaky self seems to be merging with his regular self. In other words, this project should have songs with real lyrics. I think I sense the situation when I say that this could give us a lot to talk about.
The latest issue of Beatlefan has two interviews with May Pang. I was hoping that they would ask her about John Lennon's infamous Roman Polanski outburst, but they didn't. More May is planned for the next issue.
