1) Mike has a blog. This should come in very handy as we approach the date of his scheduled interview with Iamaphoney. Add it to your favorites.
2) 65if2007 responded to my request for pictures of the CD that he found in the suitcase. He said it only contained the one file, which was the Blair Witch style video. The file name was "ooo." Here are the pictures of the CD.
3) Milesdeo has provided another picture of his note. I guess this is the uncensored version.
Last weekend a fellow we know only as 65if2007 did something to make himself the envy of Iamaphoney fans around the world. He traveled from Louisiana (I believe) to California, seemingly unafraid of all the talk of serial killers and closely guarded secrets. He dismissed wild claims about lizard-like aliens, stargates, shape shifters and paranoid computer geeks. He overcame any trepidation of rattlesnakes. He even ignored warnings about the FBI, CIA, the ghost of Doris Day and the potential threats of concerned neighbors and park police. And he found the Briefcase. It must have been a great experience to reach down and feel that baby in your hands. He has been cool about it, but his initial posts to Nothing Is Real shortly after the discovery gave away his excitement. He blessed us with pictures and descriptions of his findings, which I summarized in “The Suitcase Adventure.”
Upon his return he has had to endure maybe a little bit of skepticism and jealousy, “Why him and not me?” along with relentless unsolicited advice from people encouraging him to go get it dusted for fingerprints, get an X-Ray of it, and hire a witch or a priest to coax out demons. Okay, slight exaggerations, but not far from the truth. One writer even told him to go back to California to look for something else. On top of that came the word that Iamaphoney sent a personal message to someone saying that there was more to be found in the suitcase, which might have caused 65if2007 to think that people were accusing him of holding back some things.
First of all, I don’t think 65if2007 is holding anything back. I also don’t think anyone suggested that he was. If anyone did suggest that, it would have been because many people would have been tempted if they had found the briefcase to not let out everything for various strategic reasons. But, I think it is far more likely that if Iamaphoney actually did say there is more to be found in the briefcase, it means that there is more there than we are currently perceiving: not something hidden by 65if2007 from the rest of us, but something overlooked by all of us.
In the days since the briefcase was discovered, 65if2007 has given us some more details via the "Nothing Is Real" discussion group, to which I am indebted.
There is writing inside the briefcase. “Mal”
Another area appears to say something like “Beyond Jesus”
The cover from the “Magic Christian Soundtrack” album had some annotations on it. The words Lilli and Maclen Music were underlined. I covered Lily in a previous post. Maclen Music handled the publishing on Lennon-McCartney songs in the U.S. plus one extra song, which was “St. Paul” by Terry Knight.
The bottom corner of the album cover has some interesting scribbles on it.
It appears to me to say Paul Mc 8R.L There is some speculation that the last part refers to a postal code of some kind.
This item appeared in the subsequent video Pete Best.
The record itself has a little something on it. It looks like L.I.L.Y.
There was also some writing on the brown wrapper that held the album.
And another thing that 65if2007 described as “a little more familiar and a little more the result of purposeful design...”
Someone suggested it is the sign of Aries, the Ram, which makes perfect sense.
There have been several “Y”-shaped things in the Rotten Apple series, like this one on the left side of this frame from RA 39.
The outer jacket also contains “ME”
and the word “Superstone”
Superstone was the name of one of those outside the numbered series Rotten Apple videos. It came out around August 20, 2007 in a particularly prolific period for Iamaphoney which included Rotten Apple Videos 45, 46, and 47 all within the span of about a day. It’s actual title was "A lie adds up – Superstone" and it appeared on the site of YouTube user ROTTENAPPLEARMY (a definite Iamaphoney identity).
Unfortunately “Superstone” was taken down very quickly and only a few saw it. Fortunately, I was one of the few who did. I even got a chance to download it before it disappeared. When I got a request this week from someone at “Nothing Is Real,” the group that has been very helpful in helping us scrutinize the briefcase contents, I uploaded it to YouTube for them. Unfortunately, I removed it from YouTube last night.
I was asked to remove it and complied under the condition that I could tell you why I had to do so.
This is the correspondence I received yesterday from Iamaphoney. He has given me permission to quote it verbatim:
I must admit that I'm a fan of your work and I know that, in the future, it´ll be widely spread.
We accept the fact that superstone slipped out of our hands, and made it´s own life on youtube, really.
Superstone is a very important brick in the revelation and that demo supposed to be around!
So, if you will remove the video at this point, it would be very helpfull and highly appreciated.
If you choose not to follow the recommendation
I´ll understand it and therefore I´ll accept it.
do what thou wilt,
peace and unlimited life
So, I honored the request. Time will tell if I did the right thing. You have the right to criticise me, but it felt like the right thing to do. I also think the correspondence reveals a little bit about Iamaphoney, which after all, is what this blog is all about. If you think I did a bonehead thing, I hope you will forgive me. It is possible that this gesture will pay off dividends in the future. Let's wait and see.
The final discovery from the suitcase that we know about is the CD. I don’t know much about the CD. I would like to know: What did the CD look like? Was it packaged in anything? What was the file name of the video? Was that the only file on the disk?
This is the Video from the CD that 65if2007 so graciously uploaded to YouTube upon his return: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O3YWiLybc5c
A close investigation of the “Blair Witch” style video reveals a person wearing a mask.
Last night a new video appeared on the channel of BlllShepherd (very likely an Iamaphoney alias) called “The Mask” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hSbf799rTFM
The eerily blurry 15 second video is accompanied by backwards fragments of Led Zeppelin’s Stairway to Heaven (heard as “Oh here's to my sweet Satan. The one whose little path would make me sad, whose power is Satan.”) and the “Na Na Na” chorus of “Hey Jude” (interestingly corresponding to yesterday's post on this blog).
So, I wonder if there is anything else to be found in the suitcase. I believe that 65if2007 has found all of the physical items, but we need to do some creative thinking to find out if there is anything else of significance.
Send your thoughts, theories and insights my way of anything we might have overlooked.
