Iamafunny

One of the frequent criticisms that I keep hearing about Iamaphoney is that there is no sense of humor in his work. Although it is a difficult charge to refute, I would like to take a shot at it because I think he does use as much humor as one would expect to get away with considering the confines of the dark subject matter on which his videos are based.

We are not talking huge belly laughs here although I think he came close to that once, possibly in an effort to relieve some tension in the Iamaphoney world. In February of 2008, Iamaphoney dropped the first suitcase in California. In late March, a member of the Nothing Is Real discussion group known only as 65if2007, recovered the suitcase and was extremely cooperative about sharing information about the contents. Then the wheels fell off the cart. MikeyNL1038, who was getting some heat for being such a big fan of Iamaphoney said that he was told that 65if2007 was not telling everything about an important item in the briefcase. There is no point in dredging up old wounds of internet petitions, threats, hate messages, a banished discussion group thread, etc., but let's just say that the atmosphere in the PID world was not good. In a moment of massive frustration, 65if2007 threatened to throw the suitcase into the ocean.

Iamaphoney's hilarious response was emerge from the ocean with a suitcase in his next video:


Now, if he attempted to be that funny all the time, he would lose his core audience [I would stay, but he would lose the other two.] So, I don't expect to see much in the way of humor in these videos. Someone who sees only "Clockwork Orange" and "Full Metal Jacket" may think that Kubrick doesn't ever laugh, but with repeated viewings and exposure to his other work one may begin to detect some subtle humor. The same may be true of Iamaphoney on a much smaller YouTubeish scale.

Sometime around February of 2008, I had read in a discussion group that someone had sent Iamaphoney a picture of John Lennon and Ringo Starr, and that he responded saying that the picture was interesting. In the picture, John was wearing one of those Illuminati Symbol thingy tee shirts. I saved the picture on my hard drive and decided I wanted to do a quick post about it.



My quick post turned into several excruciating hours because I was searching and searching for that newsgroup post where I got the picture. I must have read a thousand threads on several different groups, but could not find it. I posted the picture anyway and just said that Iamaphoney had taken an interest in it. I remember being sternly reprimanded for my lack of journalistic integrity because of my failure to identify the source of the picture. [I think it turned out to be Paul Is Dead Miss Him.] This was the first time it ever occurred to me that journalistic integrity was a consideration when writing a blog. Then some other person on another discussion group said he had lost what little respect he had for Iamaphoney based on my post with the picture.

A few days later the rotten apple - 101 came out and the picture appeared in it about four times. I felt vindicated. I was thinking about that a few months later when I wrote something. I don't know if anyone else got the joke because I am often taken too seriously, but this still makes me laugh out loud.



A couple other good-natured and humorous Iamaphoney moments can be found if you look hard enough. Those who have corresponded with Iamaphoney via his YouTube Channel have discovered that he has a penchant to include the word "really" at the end of a sentence, really. But my very favorite one was when Iamaphoney graciously supplied the new fledgling Rotten Apple Discussion Group with the original lyrics to one of his songs based on a backwards Beatle song. The song "Harmless Game" included the word "shaggily." In context, the line is "man I´m singing now for my fear - will Paul re-live shaggily if someone - that is reality." The word "shaggily" has worked its way into my lexicon. I struggle to resist including it in every article. I use it at home more that I will admit.

So, yes, I believe Iamaphoney does have a sense of humor, but I do understand those who disagree. We are dealing with a dark subject after all. My hope is that we will all eventually arrive at the punchline together and have a good laugh.

65if2007 said...

Actually, as I recall, I threatened to throw the suitcase and its contents into a landfill, not the ocean.

And that was in response to a sympathetic suggestion made by jarvitronics. It wasn't my own idea.

So unless I'm mistaken, Iamaphoney's venture into the ocean really wasn't a humorous response to me.

I still have all of this stuff, and I'll probably continue to hang onto it, just on the very very very very slim chance that any of it is a genuine artifact.

I really think that I have plummeted the depths of what I have and found every "clue" that there is to be found in it.

If Iamaphoney wants to tell me to look at something else he'll have to contact me and direct me to it instead of telling others that I am "holding back".

The one possible exception is the record. The brouhaha started when Jude and others demanded that I go to the trouble of finding a phonograph to play the LP forwards and backwards.

I was unwilling to do this because I had grown tired of playing the game and I resented having the request that I do so phrased as a demand. I still haven't done it.

However, Jude and I have more or less reconciled, and now that the emotions have subsided, I'm willing to give up the LP while keeping everything else. I offered it to Jude, but he no longer wants it.

Do you want it, Tafultong? I will send it to you or to someone trustworthy if my expenses in doing so are paid and if my privacy is respected (since I will necessarily have to include my return address).

I think that our common sense tells us that it is extremely unlikely, based on Iamaphoney's history, that there is any "revelation" in the record, but I might as well establish closure on this matter.

I was quite forthcoming on the contents of the suitcase, which included that silly video that I downloaded to YouTube.

An extensive discussion of the contents of the suitcase can be found on the NIR group, and Tafultong posted copies of some of the digital photographs that I had taken.

The only dispute that I know of was my refusal to go to the trouble of playing the LP, and I am now offering to send the LP to a trustworthy person who is willing to go to that trouble.

You're welcome, Anonymous. Thank you very much for your kind remarks.

65if2007 said...

"Snatch crucifix" is apparently Iamaphoney's backwards version of "Imagine".

In Rotten Apple 9 q, Iamaphoney gave us a backwards version of "Come and Get It" ("Say half of them who works this out...").

So I suppose that if I played "Come and Get It" backwards on the LP, I might have gotten something that sounded a little like Iamaphoney's song.

This assumes that the record even plays, given its several weeks exposure to the elements in Santa Susanna Pass State Park.

Iamaphoney was just pissed after having dropped a grand pressing the album that you didn't play it backwards. After blowing the budget on limos and plane tickets, suitcases and mustang rentals, hotel rooms and other shoe leather, the non-playing of the album was the last straw. Who here hasn't had the occasional outburst from frustration?

65if2007 wants to be reimbursed for the postage on the record. How about if you not only paid a large sum to press a record WITH A CLUE on it, and then for plane tickets for TWO, car rental, hotel expenses, and countless hours in video editing, to be told that the person that found it was "tired" of the game.

Who is going to reimburse iamaphoney?
What if he was "tired"?

I didn't find it funny what iamaphoney said about you 65if2007.

Nor what some others said about you as well. You are the one and only person to actually get a suitcase. What you did was above and beyond what anyone else has done so far in that respect.

MikeNL1038 who repeatedly admonished someone to "go get the suitcase", cast doubt by saying you were withholding something,
HIMSELF failed to get the suitcase when one was dropped in his near vicinity.

I really am hoping that the humor tafultong sees in iamaphoney is a reality. What I have seen so far has been extremely mean spirited towards not only the person who is the subject of the videos, but towards the participants of this game of revelation iamaphoney purports to be preparing the world for.

Maybe instead of Yenz giving the middle finger to the viewers it was iamaphoney himself.

Stockholm syndrome said...

Stockholm syndrome is a psychological response sometimes seen in an abducted hostage, in which the hostage shows signs of loyalty to the hostage-taker, regardless of the danger (or at least risk) in which they have been placed. The syndrome is named after the Norrmalmstorg robbery of Kreditbanken at Norrmalmstorg, Stockholm, Sweden, in which the bank robbers held bank employees hostage from August 23 to August 28 in 1973. In this case, the victims became emotionally attached to their victimizers, and even defended their captors after they were freed from their six-day ordeal.

Paul is Dead syndrome said...

Paul is Dead syndrome is a psychological response sometimes seen in an viewers and bloggers of Iamaphoney videos, in which the blogger shows signs of loyalty to the hostage-taker, regardless of the danger (or at least risk) in which they have been placed. The syndrome is named after Tafultong, who is known to quote iamaphoney entirely too much around his home, really.
Really shaggily I might add, really!

In this case, the victims became emotionally attached to their victimizers, and even defended their captors, finding humor in things that did not happen, such as 65if2007 saying that he would throw the suitcase into the ocean and magickilly iamaphoney has a video where he rises from the ocean, when 65if2007 clearly said landfill.


According to the psychoanalytic view of the syndrome, the tendency might well be the result of employing the strategy evolved by newborn babies to form an emotional attachment to the nearest powerful adult in order to maximize the probability that this adult will enable — at the very least — the survival of the child, if not also prove to be a good parental figure. This syndrome is considered a prime example for the defense mechanism of identification.

65if2007 said...

I appreciate the sympathy and understanding of the one or more anonymouses who have expressed it.

At the risk of being labeled myself with Stockholm's Syndrome, I don't feel that victimized.

I worried about snakes and park rangers when getting the suitcase but nothing like that happened, so I look at all of that as an adventure of sorts -- and I'm really keeping this stuff as a souvenir of it.

The whole brouhaha that developed afterwards was distasteful, but I don't think that I was harmed by it.

Telling Mike that I was "holding back" something was at best a stupid joke or ploy on Iamaphoney's part and was at worst extremely mean-spirited.

But I've enjoyed his videos. I still do. There was a time early on when I wondered if it wasn't just possible that he really had stumbled onto the greatest Beatles story of all time.

I'm not disappointed that "Paul is still with us" after all, but I guess that I am disappointed that there was never any "revelation" to be had.

But it was and is still great entertainment and I don't think that my disappointment has harmed me. I certainly don't blame Tafultong for anything.

This psychologically irritating material is placed within Tafultong's psyche.

The protective mechanisms within Tafultong's psyche towards Paul McCartney forms a "pearl sac" around the unsaid intentions of the persons behind the iamaphoney and others videos.

A Transference occurs, leading to the Paul is Dead syndrome. Where the intense admiration and other positive healthy emotions once reserved for Paul McCartney and his music are replaced by intense feelings for the person making well edited videos saying that Paul McCartney is a satanic warlock.

This syndrome is considered a prime example for the defense mechanism of identification.

It is a common pitfall for those articulate, thoughtful, and intelligent individuals, some who may be reading this message right now.

In an attempt to reconcile the dichotomy between the polar opposites of identification between the negative image presented by iamaphoney, and the positive image originally held about Paul McCartney, leads to a transference of emotions from Paul to Iamaphoney in an attempt to control the damaging psychological information.

Humor is seen by the blogger by means of intricate "clues" placed within the well edited videos. A imagined statement by 65if2007 about throwing the suitcase into a landfill, is remembered by the blogger as "throwing the suitcase into the ocean" which is cleverly featured in the next video to be discovered as a clue to Iamaphoney's comic genius.

Top Story: Billy Joel in Yet Another Car Crash

One wonders if Billy Joel might need a refresher course at driving school. Slightly injured but mostly embarrassed, the singer/songwriter was involved in his third car accident in two years on Sunday when he lost control of his car on a rain-slicked road and banged into a house in Nassau County, New York, The Associated Press reports. The accident occurred at about 4 p.m., when Joel, driving a vintage VW bug, crashed through a row of bushes and banged into a small beige home one block from the beach.

Billy Joel cuts hand in car crash

Billy Joel crash

Billy Joel's car after it hit a house at 409 Bayville Ave., Bayville. Sun., April 25, 2004. It was his third crash in two years. (Photo by - Thomas C. Phillis Jr. / April 25, 2004)

BAYVILLE, N.Y. - Musician Billy Joel crashed a vintage car into an unoccupied house in Bayville yesterday afternoon, Nassau County police said. It was Joel's third accident in about two years.

The crash occurred at about 4 p.m., when Joel was driving westbound on Bayville Avenue and his 1967 Citroen veered off the road and smashed into 409 Bayville Ave. The occupants of the home were not there at the time, police said. The impact left a crack in the home's foundation.

Police said Joel, 54, suffered a small laceration on his left ring finger and minor damage to his car. He refused medical attention at the scene and had the car towed, police said. There was "no criminality" so no charges were filed, police said.

Neither Joel nor his publicist could be reached for comment.

Neighbors who rushed to help Joel said he emerged from the car shaken and sheepish that he was involved in another car crash.

"When we found out it was Billy Joel, we were like holy cow, this is Billy Joel," said Tom Phillips Jr., who helped Joel out of the car and, with other neighbors, helped push the vehicle away from the house.

He said Joel told them he was on his way from his Centre Island estate to pick up a pizza.

"He said 'I can't believe I'm in another car accident,'" Phillips said. "I think he was embarrassed he lost control -- that's why I think he was trying to be a joking guy and laugh it off."

Neighbors said there is a bend in the road near Third Street and Bayville Avenue close to the accident scene that can be tricky to navigate. They said a motorcycle crashed into the same house last year.

Nassau County police said no field sobriety test was conducted at the scene because there was no indication of any type of alcohol or drug use involved.

In June 2002, Joel was treated for alcohol addiction after a car accident in Sag Harbor.

Yesterday's accident marks Joel's third since 2002. His previous two bang-ups were on the East End, where he owns a home. In June 2002, Joel crashed his 1999 Mercedes-Benz into a fire well and post after losing control of the vehicle while attempting to make a turn. He refused medical attention, no charges were filed or field sobriety tests administered.

A week later, he voluntarily entered Silver Hill Hospital in New Canaan, Conn., a drug and alcohol facility.

Joel's publicist at the time said the accident and his hospitalization were "100 percent unrelated."

Six months after the first accident, in January 2003, Joel drove his 2002 Mercedes Benz into a tree in Sag Harbor, and had to be extricated from the vehicle. He spent a night at the hospital being treated for head injuries. No charges were filed or sobriety tests given in that incident either.

IAMAPHONEY said...

Hi there Tafultong,

I just wanted to say that I am a big fan of yours, really!

And I wanted to clear a couple of things up tonight.

Firstly, I did not run over any Mexicans while filming the suitcase videos in California. That would be against what we are trying to do to bring about the revelation.

Although we very could have easily run over bunches of them, there are so many! Really!

So please, nobody call the cops.

Secondly, while I make all kinds of wild accusations and out of context inferences my videos, I really dislike others talking negatively about me here. You really need to get a handle on your blog readers Tafultong. They are getting a little upitty. I basically like to dish it out, I will not take it. I think my video editing earns me the right for blind devotion. It seems to have worked with you!

I am a big fan of yours Tafultong, thank you for seeing my humor where I intended it, me climbing out of the ocean and not in the suitcase disaster. The ocean thing was a secret "wink" to you. And I am so proud you caught it.

So, you doing ok? Good, good.

In summary,
A big fan of yours Tafultong
A good driver,didn't hurt the mexican
P lease get grip on upitty blogreader
i really love to dish, not take
s o you doing ok?
F is for cookie, good enough for me!

stamp of approval mikeNL said...

I can attest with all my vested authority, that the above message from IAAP is in the best of my knowledge GENUINE.

You can tell by a number of iamaphoney patented message "Watermarks"

1. He is a big fan of Tafultong.
really!

2. He tells us not to call the cops,
because it is not his style to
run over mexicans, it would hurt
the revelation! Leave the law out
of this. Love is the only Law,
Love under will.

3. He can dish it out, not take it.

4. There is a lovely ACROSTIC that
spells out IAAPisFUNNY
ACROSTIC's are a notable feature
of a GENUINE iamaphoney message.

5. He ends with "Do what thou wilt"
Classic ending, sums up the whole
Satanic angle.


I attest under penality of PID Perjury that the above comment is funny but not nearly as funny as Iamaphoney, nor could ever dream or hope to be. If you can dunk a basket ball, or if you can play guitar and sing really well especially old beatles tunes backwards, or if you have washboard abs, or if you can edit some snazzy videos, well then you shouldn't be questioned about anything. Since some members of the team can do some of the above things, except the basketball part, learn to love instead of hate us.

Do what you're going to do.

The voice of William on Coast to Coast is not iamaphoney nor is he from Europe. He said he was born in 1966, yeah right. iamaphoney is 45 years old, do the math.

In other words, it was a hoax call.

Not sure how the ocean reference could even mildly be construed as humorous if no one--and I mean no one--doesn't catch the reference. I'm guessing Taf is searching feverishly for a quote from 65if about throwing the case into the ocean. If he did, no one remembers and therefore the "joke" is pointless. If he didn't, there's definitely a credibility issue.

Not to sound sexist, but I didn't hit me until this post that Taf must be female (if you aren't Taf, apologies). It's just that it reminded me of that Saturday Night Live when Phil Hartman playing Donahue interviewed the battered women. "Why do you stay with this guy when he beat you, humiliated you, stole your life savings, and cheated on you?" Phil asked. "You just have to know him," came the reply.

65if2007 said...

Here I come to Tafultong's rescue. Sort of. I hope.

All that I had to do was to Google "65if2007" and "ocean".

What, did no one else think to do that? It took me at least 24 hours to think of it myself.

Not too many entries with that restrictive search and so I readily found a contribution from Tafultong's own blog -- this blog -- under an article dated June 18, 2008 called "Rotten Apple 111 and More".

http://iamaphoney.blogspot.com/2008/06/rotten-apple-111-and-more.html

There's a sentence in there which reads, "It appears that a second suitcase has been dropped in the same spot in California. I suggest that we bring 65if2007 out of retirement to go fetch it for us. I realize that he may call it a briefcase and throw it into the ocean, but that might tell us how many original Mal Evans suitcases Iamaphoney actually has (or had)."

Iamaphoney's video entitled "Los Angeles Suitcase" came out on June 18, 2008.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8-JiXqJ-VBw

So while the notion of Iamaphoney having a sense of humor rankles some, I think that Tafultong's supposition to that effect has been rehabilitated.

"Los Angeles Suitcase" looks like a humorous response to Tafultong's remark and not mine.

The above post by Taf was concurrent with the baywatch video itself: RA 111 second suitcase. Taf's comment about throwing the case into the ocean therefore was his own joke about the shirtless dude in the ocean and not a humorous response by IAAP to the comment.

65is said, the "Los Angeles Suitcase" looks like a humorous response to Tafultong's remark and not mine.

This is impossible based on the facts.

On June 18 (Paul's birthday), Tafultong saw the video of Phoney emerging shirtless from the ocean. At 9pm, Taf posted the video and his remarks. He said, "I realize that he [65if] may call it a briefcase and throw it into the ocean . . ."

In other words, Taf made the joke about the ocean only after seeing the video. Taf said Phoney demonstrated a sense of humor because he set up the ocean scene in response to 65if saying he would throw it into the ocean.

THere would not have been time for Phoney to film the ocean scene, edit the video, and post it on YouTube in response to Taf's remark at 9pm.

Ahem . . .no one forces me to read newspaper articles, watch the news, or read other blogs. The point of a comments section is to comment on the content of the post, is it not? One can enjoy this blog as I do and point out factual errors. One has nothing to do with the other. The very reason Taf created this Iamafunny post was in essence to correct his audience about their assertion that Phoney is humorless. Why can't we correct his version of his correction?

If Taf had a post that said, "Lee Harvey Oswald is a Mormon because I saw a document that said so," and I discovered that document was a forgery, I would hope that it would be kosher to point that out.

Do you not care whether anything Taf says is accurate or factual? He prides himself on accuracy. He's mentioned this several times. He was aghast that he didn't credit a particular photo to give an example. This was an honest mistake based on what I've seen so far, but it is still possible 65if said something about the ocean in another forum.

90% of what is said here refers to some stated fact or allusion by Phoney, Taf, or others. Singing to the choir is boring anyway.

I am not sure it would have been funny, but it would have been clever.

Personally, I don't really see anything funny about phoney.

This "iamafunny" blog came about after some of us, me being the ring leader, turned the last blog post "New Official Video From Paul MCCartney" into a blog about Colonel Sanders and Popeye. I do realise that in the past people have commented that they mainly frequent this blog for the comedy. So, that brings me back to my original question, why does Taf feel the need to defend phoney's humor? It just seems to me that he is taking this humor challenge all too personally. Hero worship? He is part of the phoney crew? Why else would he feel the need to try and prove that phoney is as humorous as the posters here? He doesn't like us stealing his thunder? Or, maybe he is a she, and she has a crush on the phoneymeister? It wouldn't be the first time someone has done a gender swap on the internet.

I know Taf has defended himself about such accusations before, but hey, as phoney is prone to do, I like to repeat certain key issues to keep them fresh in people's minds. "Question everything" I always say, more than once if necessary.

Taf, me, you, everyone here are just one pimple on the giant anonymous ass of the internet. Right? Only a naive person would pocket an internet claim as gold.

In any event, you can't explain to an audience why something is funny. That's excruciating.

If you have to go as far to explain why something is funny, it most likely wasn't funny to begin with.

and you can't explain why something is sad. it most likely wasn't sad to begin with. (by your reasoning)

comedy and tragedy

:) and ;(

which came first? the chicken or the egg? what would be the preferred sequence? like, if you had to pick?

Chicken or the egg?

Considering the paint comes before the painting, and simple would appear to precede the complex, I'd have to go with egg.

Good one, but the chicken was in the shell.

"the chicken has little to do with the formation of an egg's shell -- the egg actually grows the shell around itself! It does this using processes that are also seen in bones and seashells."

so there ya go. Chicken first, egg later. And you know the rest of the story.

I have to admit I did not anticipate anybody interpreting this post as being a defense of Iamaphoney's sense of humor. I think that after the fourth of fifth suitcase, he proved that he was immune to criticism. I doubt that he would care if I defended him.

But hey, this whole topic exists because people like us take the expressions of others and use our own creativity to interpret the meaning, so I shouldn't complain. In fact, I won't.

I bristled about being psychoanalyzed a while back, but I have to give a tip of the hat to the psychoanalyst who commented on this post. It was good natured, humorous, thoughtful and who knows, it might have even had some truth in it.

I really don't know how to respond to Larry's question about why I felt the need to defend Iamaphoney's humor. I need oxygen, water, food and a handful of other things. But, I think I could make it through the day without defending Iamaphoney.

Your post states up front (re Phoney's lack of a sense of humor) "It's a difficult charge to refute, but I'd like to take a shot at it."

I'm pretty sure the post was a defense of Iamaphony's sense of humor.

Quote: "This was Phony's hilarious response"

"If he tried to be this funny all of the time"

Etc.

Case rested.

And there's the thing. You might not realize it, but it is obvious you care more about defending Phoney than Phoney.
