Iamaphoney Interview

As you know, instead of an interview with nine questions and nine answers, we got a new Iamaphoney video called 9 Questions.

Mike made a slowed down version of it which has confused some viewers.

My computer decided to die in the middle of all this, so that is why I have been quiet today. I had backups of most things, but I lost quite a few things too. I am trying to get myself organized. I want to thank those of you who kept everybody informed while I was away. The comments section helped me to get up to speed quickly on the latest developments.



Today is the day, April 10, 2008.

UPDATE #5

I assume you have all seen Mike's comment here in response to the question, "How sure are you?"

I knew I should have checked it before announcing it! Very funny, Mike. Sorry for the false alarm.

UPDATE #3

Vince here,
Still 'having a lovely time'!
Knowing my love for the absurd, if any one needs to kill time before this thing happens, People Like Us is doing a live 3 hour show in 3 hours on:
http://www.wfmu.org/

Bridging the gap between "Rev.9"/"Lumpy Gravy"-style wackiness, and the new "mash-up" trend, People Like Us is a one-man band from England! Her name is Vicki Bennett, and, if you can stand it, you can hear her entire discography for FREE!!
Just a suggestion!
I'll being around all day, so, let's keep our fingers crossed!

*****..are there still people who believe this nonsense?*****


This blog is about the individual who calls himself "Iamaphoney" who produces intriguing videos about this "nonsense".

Are there "still" (as though time should have withered them away) people who believe this "nonsense"?

I'm an agnostic on the issue.

I'm actually quite sure that there's SOMETHING there, some sort of secret that the Beatles and those behind them chose not to openly share with the world.

I don't know whether that SOMETHING involved the death and/or replacement of Paul
McCartney, and I recognize that there are great difficulties with that supposition.

But something happened. So I'm an agnostic, as I believe that the individual responsible for this blog is an agnostic.

Iamaphoney's videos are intriguing. Not necessarily completely trustworthy, but intriguing.

Did you watch any of them before asking the rhetorical question that you asked?

Anonymous said...

I saw all of the videos and never for a moment believed from their content (especially the reverse "clues") that Paul died or that he was replaced. The known clues for me, if anything, would be an in joke or something of that nature, not a stretch for the Beatles. What IAAP seems focused on is whether Paul is a satanist, the reincarnation of some pharaoh, or the Son of Crowley, none of which are PID related.

Tafultong said...

Great comments tonight. If the interview is half as entertaining and enlightening as the conversation here, I'll be satisfied.

I agree with 65if2007 that it sure seems like something happened between 1966 and 1967 that changed not only the Beatles, but the world.

As the press maintained that they were losing popularity and the ticket sales for their concerts were decreasing, they seemed to have greater impact on the social climate in much of the world.

The "Paul Is Dead" rumor did cause an increase in the sales of the albums, and that allowed fans who had dropped out after 1965 to see how great and timeless their music really was.

But even though all four Beatles had changed (even Cynthia Lennon was shocked by the change in John's appearance) it was Paul who seemed the most different.

But it is just not plausible that some new guy could step into the most successful band in the world and immediately take over leadership. I know there are some theories about several people working at being different aspects of Paul, but that's crazy to think that it continue through a successful solo career that is approaching 40 years.

No, something supernatural or magical (maybe with a K) had to happen if Paul was in fact replaced. That supernatural thing, I believe, is what Iamaphoney is trying to reveal (ever so gradually) in his videos. That's why they contain so many elements going far beyond an inconvenient car crash.

If I'm wrong, it's still damn entertaining and fascinating.

To the other Anonymous way up there, check out Badfingers songs Midnight Caller and Lonely You. The bass, piano and vocals are so similar to Wings era Paul Im always suprised he didn't play on them. Or maybe, Pete and Tom were Wings era Paul, there's a mindphuck for all the retards that call Badfinger bad Oasis wanna-bes.

Every one else, realy check out Badfinger. Wether you're looking for PID, PIS, or just good music you'll find it there.

Tafultong said...

Yes, Badfinger was great. Here is a place to hear some rare Badfinger stuff.

65if2007 said...

Some of Iamaphoney's reversal clues seem weak to me.

I don't agree with any of the reversals that he claimed to have found in "Hey Jude".

But "Paul, we used to sing with him" -- to my ears -- seems to spring pretty clearly from the reversal of "Real Love".

65if2007 said...

*****What IAAP seems focused on is whether Paul is a satanist, the reincarnation of some pharaoh, or the Son of Crowley, none of which are PID related.*****


To IAAP, these ARE PID-related.

As suppositions, they might stand or fall on their own, but to IAAP, they ARE PID-related.

MikeNL said...

i think the hey jude reversals are VERY good

we know that Paul is using reverse speech here for a fact... why would he says iamaphoney backwards..

Anonymous said...

tafaultong, regardless of PID I don't see anything supernatural or "magickal" happening between 66 and 67 to the Beatles as much as I see a band looking to reinvent themselves by jumping on the psychedelic bandwagon of the San Francisco scene.Jefferson Airplane,Grateful Dead,Moby Grape,Big Brother and the Holding Company were all established by late 66 and that was the new hip sound the rock press in the U.K. raved about and that made the Beatles look like fossils overnight.They had to change their sound,appearance,everything to stay in the race.Look how ancient their moptop look is when compared to a band like the Doors who were becoming legends at LA's Whisky-A-Go-Go in 66.It irritates me that the Beatles are now seen as the kings of psychedelia and acid rock when they were absent from the whole scene.Locked away in London living the suburban nightlife of the neuveau riche.People make a big deal about the summer of love in 67 but that stuff was all going on in 66.1967 is when the mainstream media finally picked up on it.

Tafultong said...

No doubt the Beatles were influenced by those bands that you named. That was part of the inspiration for the vague idea that became Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. But, I don't know that many people would listen to Revolver and think "fossils."

And if I go a while without listening to Pepper, I sometimes wonder if it might sound dated. But as soon as I put it on, it jumps out far ahead of anything else from those flower power years. Every time it surprises me how contemporary it sounds.

Although, I must admit, some of those other bands you mentioned did some great stuff. It was a creative time.

Anonymous said...

"But, I don't know that many people would listen to Revolver and think "fossils."

You'd be surprised.The Beatles or Lennon/McCartney were thought of like a freaky Rogers and Hart with songs that might appeal to a hip crowd and songs that would appeal to grannies and babies.Could you imagine The Doors putting out something like "Yellow Submarine"???? History has proven though that this was a strength and it's why their music holds up all these years later,once they finally moved away from the RnB based music of their past to embrace English music hall or Schubert or musique concrete all of which is timeless.To me though Sgt.Pepper is like the watered down version of psychedelia while "Surrealistic Pillow" is more my speed but that is because I might be a fossil myself.

Anonymous said...

No one has ever come close to demonstrating any supernatural activity or process, else IAAP knows something Dirac, Einstein, Bohr, et al didn't. When I say "demonstrating," I don't mean video editing or pseudo-scientific pronouncements. If IAAP can prove that Macca was replaced through some supernatural activity, the real story would be that there is supernatural activity, and the world's learning institutions would be revolutionized overnight. It would constitute the most important discovery of history. And to think it all happened on YouTube. That said, I'm not knocking your site, Taful--I am a regular visitor and I appreciate your ideas, enthusiam, and (mostly) level-headed discourse.

Tafultong said...

To one of the anonymous people:

As Ringo said in A Hard Days Night, "Well, if you're gonna get technical about it..."

Yes, reality is a nice domain too. I spend much of my time there. But a theologian once pointed out to me that evil has intelligence, and I have had a difficult time disproving that statement. So, I'm not saying I don't have to suspend some belief when I am this arena. I'm just saying that it is easier to do so than one might think. So it doesn't have to be THAT magickal. Just a little.

Thank you for your kind comments about the blog.

Tafultong said...

To another anonymous,

Yes, I see your point about "Yellow Submarine." I think you hit on why their music is so timeless for me. It is burned into the pleasure centers of my brain. Ringo never played the same drum fill twice and The Beatles rarely treaded over the same ground.

Also, what was the "exciting news" they gave you the other day?

Thanks for the updates anyhow. I'm keeping my fingers crossed! :)

This is just retarded. It didn't have to be his big production. IAAP could've just emailed the answers to the questions and made it much simpler. I don't understand why it wasn't done like that in the first place. Since 65If found the suitcase, I thought it would be in the bag (no pun intended).

While I'm at it:

What was with all this talk of a TV broadcast? Was IAAP setting this up for his own "revelation" or did you actually speak with a channel about the interview yourself?

What exactly do you mean when you speak with the IAAP "camp"? Are you communicating with different individuals? Text/Voice? Have you been given any indication of how the whole operation is organized?

I guess what I'm getting at is-

Who do you think IAAP is?

I'm not so sure.

If he was talented in his own right and he believed that his position made him indispensable, he might be in a position to throw his weight around.

Confession (#17) sneak preview

Anonymous said...

There is a frame in the latest IAAP vid that appears to be one of the original sketches for the Sgt. Pepper cover. It is on brownish paper with the four lads roughly silhouetted above and the drum head/flowered text written out, larger, below. What interests me most are the numbers that appear to be written underneath the letters (1-7?). If this is indeed one of the developmental sketches Blake and the Beatles used, it may well be further evidence for the "floral clock" or "mirrored drum" theories (or else suggestive of some other rebus/gematria/symbolism we may or may not know about).

Does anyone have a higher resolution copy of this image?

Also, somewhat along the same lines, I am wondering about the "I'm So Tired" outtakes Mikey has posted on his blog. In these clips, Paul (?) and John (?) can be heard practising (and joking about!) what sounds very much like the reversed "Paul is a dead man, miss him, miss him" segment at the end of the song! What is the source for this? Has anyone else heard this before? If it's legit, it seems like a pretty important bit of evidence in the realm of PID clues (since, to my limited knowledge, the Beatles have never really admitted to hiding anything in their songs beyond the "tit tit tit" backing vocals on "Girl").

Anonymous said...

Vince, here,
Maybe they BEAT THE DEVIL!
On the Rigorous Intuition site, I brought the idea of Paul being like Johnny Favorite in "Angel Heart": He wasn't sacrificed, but in the 'clues', they predented that he was, to tell the PTB (whoever THEY are), "Yeah, we did it, but don't tell the fans (sheep, little people, etc.), OK? This way we can continue."
And, who knows, maybe in 1980, THEY caught up to Paul, and, in a bit of desparation, told them to take John instead!
Anyway, check out "Angel Heart". DeNiro's very funny in it.

Yes, the recordings are legit. Although neither one has been released commercially, they are from well documented sources. Doug Sulpy and Ray Schweighardt, in their book "Get Back: The Unauthorized Chronicle of The Beatles Let It Be Disaster" have an interesting take on the second one, which was recorded on January 3, 1969:

Paul lapses into a comic representation of someone (named Del) hooked on various drugs to control their [sic] state of consciousness. For the record, he mentions 'Emma' (a contemporary term for morphine) and 'seggy' (slang for Seconal, a barbiturate). By alternating the two, the drug-user would be caught in a vicious cycle of up-and-down.

That seems rather strange considering John's drug dependence at the time. I remember reading somewhere that the director of "Let It Be," Michael Lindsay-Hogg, who was possibly bitter about the fact that it still shows no signs of every being released on DVD said that he wanted to touch on John's drug problems in the movie, but they wouldn't let him.
