Good News

Both of the surviving Beatles have been nominated for Grammy Awards this year. To call this a pleasant surprise would be an understatement. This must be the most unpredictable turn of events in Beatles history since Ferdinand Marcos said, "Let the plane take off."

Ringo Starr, who has had a disastrous few months welcomed the news about his nomination for Best Surround Sound Album with a press statement. According to the Abbey Road Beatles News Site, Starr said, "I am thrilled to be nominated." "Ringo 5.1 The Surround Sound Collection" contains some of the best tracks from the Mark Hudson era. Despite some glaring omissions (e.g. "Write One For Me") the album is a strong collection of tracks and the sound really is phenomenal. The sound is spacious and has none that overproduced or over-compressed feel.



[Note: Regarding the Apple Starr thread at Nothing Is Real...Yes, I checked...When Ringo makes a peace sign, his index finger is at a 12 degree angle.]

Hopefully this nomination will turn things around for Ringo who has suffered some severe setbacks recently. His announcement on his website promising to trash all fan mail after October 20, 2008 caused him to be savaged by the press. Shortly after that blunder, another incident occurred at an awards show in Monaco that was tacked on to the public relations downfall. Paul McCartney finally came to Ringo's defense last week. What took him so long?

Paul McCartney received not one but two nominations for two different songs on one of the most obscure things he ever released. "Amoeba's Secret" was recorded at his Amoeba Record Store concert in Hollywood, California on June 27, 2007. The vinyl only E.P. has only four songs, two of which have been nominated for Grammys. That's pretty good for a limited edition with a blurry cover that was designed to look like a bootleg. Copies of the E.P. are surprisingly available and affordable on Ebay and through various independent retailers linked to Amazon. The initial run available exclusively through Amoeba Records sold out quickly, so I suspect that either there was a quiet re-release or there are counterfeit copies floating around. That would explain why some copies are selling for around $100 and other sealed copies can be found under $20.

The cover art of the E.P. included a completed Wordsearch puzzle presumably done by Paul. The puzzle "answers" include the name of the artist, title of the E.P., and all of the song titles.



It is the rest of the puzzle grid that has raised some eyebrows. The top right area of the puzzle has three consecutive letters that spell "ABE." Abe Laboriel, Jr. of course, just happens to be Paul's drummer. The chances of three random letters spelling a name that happens to be one of the five musicians on the album are rather good. Coincidence right? Immediately under the three letters that spell "ABE" are the three letters "PID." Again three letters in a grid have a decent chance of spelling something relevant, so we shouldn't jump to the conclusion that "PID" stands for "Paul Is Dead." That would be silly. I realize that the odds against "ABE" and "PID" both lining up in the same corner of the same puzzle are considerably higher, but it's still just a coincidence right? The only objection to this discussion of meaningful randomness can be found in the bottom row of the puzzle where we find the consecutive letters "SURREAL." I can say no more.

According to AbbeyRd, "That Was Me" was nominated for for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance (For a solo vocal performance. Singles or Tracks only), and "I Saw Her Standing There was nominated for Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance (For a solo vocal performance. Singles or Tracks only).

It's hard to explain how two products that sold in the dozens could be nominated for three grammy awards, but Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr deserve every bit of recognition they have gotten.

Another piece of good news is that the bigs have picked up on the "Carnival of Light" story. I don't think there is anything new here, but the buzz may put some pressure on the powers that be to actually release the thing.
MSNBC New mania for a long-buried Beatles track features comments from Bruce Spizer.
CNN 'Lost' Beatles track could finally be heard
The Wall Street Journal Paul McCartney's Latest Collaboration surprisingly begins with the "Carnival of Light" story.

There was good news also for the Fireman. "Electric Arguments" is the first Fireman album to chart, hitting the Billboard Top 200 at #67. [I don't think that was rounded up from 66.6] The fact that this was the first Fireman release on an indie label made it eligible for the Top Independent Albums chart, where it debuted at #1.

All this talk of Good News reminds me of that album by Attitudes. Ringo played drums on the title track. It was released on George's Dark Horse Label. And on the back cover, Danny Kootch proved that Paul McCartney is not the only guy to ever have a hand above his head.

And in the bottom left quadrant, we have the words "hate" and "home" backwards. He must have been using an unrandom letters chart when making this puzzle.

65if2007 said...

Whether or not "PID" or "NO PID" is a coincidence, it's fairly safe to say that "SURREAL" is not a coincidence.

After a certain number of letters, you have to discount that possibility.

It may well be that McCartney continues to play PID games until this day.

And, for that matter, whether those letters are coincidental or not, a 2001 McCartney production called "Rinse the Rain" pretty much seems to state outright "By the way, Paul is dead" at about 3:42 - 3:46.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VguEpMf-Rt0

But I wouldn't swear to it, and the dispute over "House of Lords" and "House of Paul" (I STILL find myself amazed that there is such a dispute) suggests that audio clues are less reliable indicators than visual ones.

65if2007 said...

By the way, I'm virtually certain that this WordSearch puzzle interested Iamaphoney and that it has been included in a number of the videos that he released after the album.

I don't remember what he found interesting in it though. I don't remember if he was also impressed by PID and SURREAL or if he found something else.

65if2007 said...

There's at least two other words in there: "RECORD" and "GLOOM".

Other words in the puzzle include: COOL, RECORD, BRIAN, RID, RAG, SEA, GIG, HATS, CORD, TENT, GRECO, ROOT...

Like most McCartney songs, there are vocalizations over instrumental portions. So, this is outside the repeated lyrics. 65if's link was to a video by mccrabapple, whose videos are a joy to watch. In fact, Paul McCartney even mentioned one of them in an interview after his son James had shown him around YouTube.

I never thought to mention it before, but I noticed this months ago while I was rocking to "Harmless Game" ("Say half of them who works this out...") - Iamaphoney's backmasked revision of "Come and Get It" on Rotten Apple 9 q.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5BhNKgApDyo

At 7:10 - 7:16 of Rotten Apple 9 q, Iamaphoney (or "the actor" or whatever we would call the guy who regularly appears in these videos) appears to be driving away from the scene on Santa Susana Pass where he deposited Suitcase #1.

The traffic sign that he passes warns motorists that there is a "DIP" in the road, but Iamaphoney subtly includes a mirror image of that sign in his video, which, of course, suggests a distorted image of "PID".

I'm sure that this was purposeful on Iamaphoney's part. But as twisted as Iamaphoney is, he just COULDN'T have meant to seriously suggest that CALTRANS was dutifully dropping PID clues near the Manson Family site.

I assume that this six-second clip was simply Iamaphoney's homage to the Cosmic Trickster of Synchronicity - the same Cosmic Trickster who placed Lennon by the "The best way to go is by M&DC" sign in 1967 during the filming of the Magical Mystery Tour.

Of course this is only conjecture but couldn’t the whole PID thing be a reaction to Paul taking over the band after Brian’s death? John didn’t seem capable of leading and Paul stepped in around the time the PID albums were made. If the clues are there at all perhaps they are a comment on how the other members missed the old Paul before he became the new Paul with the bossy responsibility of leading the band and making all the decisions. Where is the fun Paul who was an equal with us? Paul is a dead man, miss him, miss him.

Nope. The PID albums as you call them start before Brian died, as far back as Yesterday and Today if you count paul in the trunk or the meat and baby dolls (oddly enough the butcher cover is used on the Beatles Monopoly game, not the one with paul in a trunk).

You guys are cracking me up with this word search business. Between this and the cyphers i'm expecting to see some Iamaphoney crossword and Highlights hidden picture games.

Hey Taf,
Danny K. Haven't thought of him lately. Made me think about the work he did with James Taylor -and the others in that circle.
Russ Kunkel on drums,
Lee Sklar on bass, etc.
L. Ronstadt -who would back James alot.

Not to say there is absolutely no talent today, but when you look at

Anonymouses, Weiss probably has made recordings of his conversations. I'm not sure how JohnCharles would have access to one unless he is/was a client or friend or knows one of his clients/friends. That video is private now but all of the others were private for awhile and now some are public again.

As to PID being a reaction to Paul taking over, you'd think it would be John is Dead, since he "died" in his old leadership role.

Anonymous said...

John Charles Julian Lennon (born 8 April 1963), known universally as Julian Lennon, and by some fans as Jude, is an English singer, songwriter, musician, and first son of Beatle John Lennon and the only child of Lennon's first wife Cynthia Lennon. His godfather was Beatles' manager Brian Epstein. His father's nickname for him was "JCJ", and he was named after John Lennon's late mother, Julia.

Anonymous said...

"Julian Lennon's parents divorced when he was five. He had almost no contact with his father after the divorce, "


So John Lennon cruised off the first time with the divorce and had almost no contact with Julian, and then now Julian thinks his dad pulled an Elvis and cruised off again pretending to be dead, and now Jude here on the IAAP blog used to believe that John Lennon was alive "Mr. Pilgrim", then doesn't believe he is and blames iamaphoney for stringing him along, so wait, anyone have a score card? Oh yeah! Jude from the Iamaphoney blog is really John Charles 2007 who is YouKnowMyName231 who IS REALLY JULIAN LENNON.

Jude never threw epic "hissy fits". Do any of you smartarses know what a hissy fit is? It's when some cries over spilled milk. But in all my years of knowing him, Jude never cried over spilled milk. This man has always lived in his father shadow, and though he'd constantly be trying his damndest to be his own person his critics always tear into his work. Photograph Smile was a modest success, but he knows he is better and deserves better. He didn't ask to be born John Lennon's son and always have that stigma attached to him.

All I see is a bunch of prepubescent fools hounding Jude at every drop of his name. Your claims of hissy fits and emotional outbursts will never be supported by anything substantial, only vague recollections of Julian vocalizing his frustrations with this online community. But no more. Mr. Lennon has played this game for far too long. He may have a few days left in as JC2007, but his RockXLight days are over and so is his time spent posting here. He is gearing up for the release of Conscious, and has more important things to do than to waste time with you lot. And I can't say I don't applaud his decision, because I've been trying my damn best to get him to quit this PID nonsense once and for all.
He rarely finds time to update his Myspace page, answer fan mail, etc.
And, look, Paul isn't dead. To be fair, he always seems to teeter between believing or disbelieving, but to be honest I think this whole matter reeks of bullocks and therefore shouldn't even be up for consideration.

Sadly you can't be arsed to copy/paste this so-called hissy fit, can you?

What is a hissy fit to you, exactly? When someone is upset about anything, does is mean they are having an emotional outburst/hissy fit? Maybe you're just not familiar with feelings of anger or hurt; Jules has had a lot of that in his life, so he can come across as being a bit bitter at times.

But I know your kind. You're leeches, and you've latched on to Julian's greatest weakness and won't let go. He is a sensitive individual, yes, but he is no way unbalanced. He has his ups and his downs, just like anyone. Anyone, that is, except for you lot. The only emotions you ever express are snarkiness and sarcasm.

As I said earlier, you're not even trying any more, are you? Anyone with half a brain knows that that is clearly not what I said, just like anyone with half a brain realises that "apology accepted" sort of implies that you're the one who just got apologised to!
You can't really find a way to twist my words around, so you just make things up.

You are both shallow and pathetic, and to such degrees that I am simply astounded with each every thing you post.

And John T. the webmaster for Julian Lennon, reads this blog.

Must we dredge all this up again?

Julian Lennon or not, there's something painful there that's best left outside of a snarky little blog. Have a heart, people.

Also, John T.- confirm your story with the owner of the blog if you want any of us to take you half seriously.

Well then. I suppose anything is a hissy fit when you pull it out of context. With the shit you twats write about him I'd say every word of that so-called "fit" was your just reward.

There is a small group of people who seem somewhat bent on ruining this blog for everyone else. These same people issue ad hominem attacks on Tafultong's credibility as well as Iamaphoney's (who, as batty as he is can't possible deserve all THAT). You know who you are, and it's becoming increasingly obvious that you post under different aliases, hopelessly trying to convince the readers of this blog that you are the majority. Jules wrote that you were shallow and pathetic; couldn't agree with him more, actually. Go back to 4chan, children, and let the adults do the talking. Okay?

I can't win against people who are just going to make this sort of shit up. You have Mr. Lennon caricaturised (is that a word?) as a helpess, whining teenage drama queen. You've exaggerated the truth greatly, pulled quotes out of context and used every dirty trick in the book to demean this poor man.

Let the friends of Julian speak for themselves. He seemed to think highly of MikeNL. Let him tell everyone about the real Julian...I can't be arsed to deal with you miserable twats any longer.

John T. OUT

Yes, I freely admit that reading this blog is a guilty pleasure. On my many numerous communications with Julian Lennon, we would discuss the lunatic things that are presented here. It made for a rapport between us. One that I cherished while running his official websites that I do.

Then one day, people began to QUESTION the things the Jude was saying.

And that sir, is not allowed!

"Miss HIM? So, you are not Jude?"

RockXLight, Jude, whatever you want to call me when I'm online. It's not the real me. Only a few people in the PID community know the real me. This isn't the real me typing. It's not my real name, and I'm not talking about anything I truly give a rats arse about. I suppose you could say it's all formalities on this end. I continue to be a presence in the PID community simply because I feel compelled to be due to my YouTube channel. That's practically all I concern myself with these days, anyway. The suitcase? With all due respect, they can shove it. I got tired of the suitcase shenanigans after the third one. I'm really not all that far from the current one, but I'm not going to pick it up for the fear that it will only empower IAAP to continue the shenanigans until 2012. "Just gimme some truth"---that's how I feel. I don't think Iamaphoney needs any one to pick up these suitcases to go forward with the "revelation". I believed it when it was one suitcase, supposedly Mal's suitcase. But four? Rubbish.

APATHY
It seems that all you youngsters out there have blogs these days.
I guess I better get on the old proverbial bandwagon and start my own!

Welcome to APATHY: Because we all need less of it these days.

It is here that I will be share, when I am inspired to do so, my thoughts about the Beatles and, more specifically, the Paul is Dead phenomenon. There are many, many clues and other strange odds and ends that I have uncovered in Beatles songs and films. And the problem with most of these findings were that I could never quite figure out how make a YouTube video out of them. For whatever reason I wasn't comfortable sharing them at Nothing is Real, and since I couldn't be arsed to write them down I have unfortunately forgotten many of them. Hopefully I can remember some and share with all of you people out there internet-land.

P.S. Sorry for the ugly layout, my loves. My HTML skills aren't quite up to par, so I hope you'll all bear with me as I "learn the ropes".

Whoever John T. is, I think I get what he was saying. There are, I think, two invididuals who are registering OpenID/Blogger names and posting as other people and it couldn't be more obvious that its them. Seriously, GROW UP ALREADY!!!
I've lurked this board for a looong time, and I usually don't say much this is getting ridiculous. I'm not saying I believe John T. or that Jude is Julian or whatever just grow up and have some respect for inviduality and stop posting as other people. Whoever you are you are immature and are a detriment to this blog!!

Also, the Apathy blog seems to have been made by Jude himself, dumbass:

"P.S. Sorry for the ugly layout, my loves. My HTML skills aren't quite up to par, so I hope you'll all bear with me as I "learn the ropes".

He wasnt. He was a good video editor and i for one always enjoyed his comments (except for the crap with 65if2007 which i never really understood).

Arse, and Twat, I believe, are common words. Also, I don't see how Jude is 65if2007, John T., OR Julian Lennon or whoever else he/she/it is claiming/or is being claimed to be..

I don't chime in here but I visit this blog every once in a while for a laugh at the comments and for the author's Beatles related trivia.
I'll be another anonymous just to go with the flow but I have had quite a few personal conversations with Jude and he is a very nice guy who sometimes gets upset over things posted online about him or about things he cares about. He shouldn't really because, like anything posted online about anything, this is not reality. It's a fantasy world populated by screen names and wild claims and blather. Jude will grow out of taking it personally eventually as we all (hopefully) do.
You don't have to believe me because I'm guilty of hiding behind a screen name too ("anonymous"...how bizarre. Aren't we all? Especially on the internet?).
I can assure you that he is not Julian Lennon. He's an intelligent young man who can get carried away as all young men do.
