Jim Boggia's Lament

Jim Boggia is another one of those musicians whose work shows a heavy Beatles influence. And people won't hate you just for being a fan of Jim Boggia, unlike a certain other Beatles influenced musician I know. But like that other Beatles influenced musician I know, Jim gives his fans lots of free things. There is much to enjoy on his web site, his MySpace site and on YouTube.

Jim did an outstanding cover of "She's Leaving Home" on the World Cafe.



He also did a rocking version of "Helter Skelter."



We are not talking a casual Beatles fan when we talk about Jim Boggia. You can go to ITunes and buy his cover of "Simple Life," a song recorded by Ringo Starr exclusively for a Japanese television commercial for Leisure Suits! That song, and several other Beatle covers can be purchased on the Jim Boggia MySpace Page.

Another gem on his MySpace is a special mix of a song he did for his album "Safe In Sound." The song "Let Me Believe (Evan's Lament)" was a collaboration with Emitt Rhodes. When Emitt's eponymous album came out in 1970, many people thought it was the Beatles or Paul McCartney. Although Emitt grew tired of the comparisons, he was another fan of the Beatles music and more recently the subject of a thread at "Nothing Is Real." The great thing about the version of the song on Jim's MySpace is that it is a karaoke version with the lead vocals eliminated. As a result, you can clearly hear Emitt's Beatlesque backing vocals. I am planning to do a post about Emitt Rhodes in the near future.

Back to Jim Boggia...There is another thing that makes him worthy of a post here. Jim was in fact, one of Iamaphoney's earliest critics.



In response to "Paul Is Dead - Rotten Apple 7" which pointed out the lyrics to the not yet released "You Never Give Me Money" on Manson's door at the Spahn Movie Ranch in 1969, Jim wrote the following comment:


JimBoggia (1 year ago)

Dude, as is the case today - radio gets the record BEFORE it's released. Abbey Road was being played on the radio in Aug '69. Always good to see Mike Douglas, though.




I would love to see Jim Boggia collaborate with Iamaphoney. Maybe Jim could do a Beatles song forwards while Iamaphoney does it backwards, and they could meet in the middle.

I doubt very much that Boggia would want to collaborate with someone like Iamaphoney. Boggia seems to have his wits about him.

iamaphoney said...

Sure, Jim Boggia, The Beatles finished the song aug 5 1969, rushed it out to radiostations at the 6th, Manson got it at the 7th, wrote it on the door at the 8th and went out to kill at the 9th.

Hello all,

I'd like to formally announce the creation of the Paul is Evil forums, a place where you can go to talk about Paul possibly being evil/the son of Aleister Crowley/Aleister Crowley himself, and/or the other Beatles and their dealings with the occult. Basically, if you want to talk about the "sinister" side of the Beatles, or just want some place to go where you can bitch about how you hate Paul/John/George/Ringo, this is where to go. It's not all serious, however, and neither should all of the theories about Paul be taken at face value. This is simply a place for those of you who take an interest in the dark side of the Beatles.

That said, the idea of me creating such a place might come as a shock to some of you, as I am known to come to McCartney's defense nearly every time his character is called into question at NIR. This is because NIR is a PID message board, and a moderated one no less. Whereas this is unmoderated, and the topic is not limited to one particular subject but rather any and all things that pertain to the Beatles being somewhat less than the darling little angels that the world grew up with in the 60's. Whatever your take is on the idea that Paul and the Beatles were forces of evil, it is an idea that is growing in popularity amongst PID conspiracy theorists with no small thanks to Iamaphoney.

Do you think that behind the Beatles storied success there were sinister forces at work?

Perhaps you just dislike Paul McCartney, or rather what he became (or who became him) in late 1966?

I find this VERY irresponsible of you, Jude.

Jude said...

"I find this VERY irresponsible of you, Jude."


How so? It's not that I believe Paul is evil, or that I hate him; I simply felt that people with a passion for such things (you know you are because we've probably butted heads in the past) should have a venue for discussion.

How long has it been since PID forums like NIR began to shift their focus away from PID to delving into matters such as Paul being a Satanist, or the Beatles being Tavistock slaves? And I don't want to name any names here, but there have always been people at NIR and in the Youtube PID scene that wear their emotions on their sleeves in regards to Sir Paul, going so far as to claim that Sir Paul played a role in the 911 attacks. As a self-containing discussion such outrageous claims about Paul and the Beatles could be fascinating, but when they spring up in the middle of a PID-related discussion they are just annoying.

I just want Paul is Evil to be a place where people can talk seriously about the darker side of the Beatles that directors like Iamaphoney so love to explore in their videos. I don't see what's so irresponsible about that. Like Tafultong I am interested in the Beatles/religion/occult connection, but maintain a deep sense of respect for Paul McCartney.

Maybe you can help. Currently my accusations are pretty damaging (aliens, reptiles, replacements), but I'd really like to bring them to a wider audience. My friends at school have already heard my theories. I'm also interested in stepping up my game to libel. What should I do?"

Caller, we already recommended you start a YouTube site and forum in order to accuse celebrities of being evil. Your dream of casting aspersions and outright witch-hunting is now one step closer. Jude has now created a brand NEW evil Paul forum. Sure, all the other PID forums have little sections on evil Paul and "Occult Beatles," but they don't focus enough on a single individual. If you can't wait to start accusing Paul McCartney of being evil while hiding behind an anonymous username, then join today at absolutely no cost! If anything, at least a few unhinged kids that can't be bothered to research facts will come away with the sense that Paul is evil, and that's good enough for us!

Remember, if you find yourself digging into dark subjects then you're well on your way to the Satanic Labyrinth!!!

So....out of your deep sense of respect for Paul McCartney you chose the name "Paul Is Evil" for your forum? No offense, I am just trying to understand how you can have respect for a person, yet promote a subject that may cause disdain toward the same person.

I hope you never develop a deep sense of respect for me. If you do, please don't dedicate a whole forum to my name, just include me in your "Paul Is Evil" forum, only rename it "Paul and Larry Are Evil". I would consider that an honor.

The name "Paul is Evil" is meant to be seen as tongue-in-cheek, and does not reflect how I feel about Sir Paul. And I'm not promoting the subject at all. In fact, I created the forum in hopes that it would attract some of the more rabidly anti-Macca people away from NIR so they'd have a place where they can spew all their hate propaganda (which isn't to say that not all Paul/Beatles are evil theories are rubbish, some of them may have a grain of truth to them).

I like Paul. A lot. He's a great guy, and I don't think he is the anti-Christ. But he did release a song called 444, and then a song called 222, so who knows?

I checked that out earlier today, and I believe the door was taken by the police about one month after Abbey Road came out, although tracks had been played on the radio. In any event, why does the famous children's rhyme "1,2,3,4,5,6,7," which was as popular as "eenie meeny miny moe," have to refer to the ending of You Never Give Me Your Money? Is someone alleging that Paul or other Beatle person told the Manson family to scribble that rhyme on the doorway for some unknown reason? Manson never said anything about that--and he's got no reason to lie about knowing Macca or getting acetates of Beatle songs prior to release.

Jude,

In all respect, no matter what the tongue in cheek reference you meant to intend by calling an UNMODERATED blog "Paul is Evil" IS irresponsible. There are crazy people out there. Like the guy that shot John. Like the guy that stabbed George. And to an unstable person looking to right evil or become famous or whatever who wouldn't have thought twice about Sir Paul, you're creating a catalyst. Making you a wanna-be-Manson.

You should think about renaming the blog.

Love the new forum, Jude! Awesome idea.

Jude said...

I'll consider renaming the forum (it's not a blog..) if it really bothers people so much. The name "Paul is Evil" is an IAAP reference (he often shows the cover of "Paul is Live" in his videos and rearranges it to say "Paul is Evil"). I really don't take the idea that Paul is Evil seriously which I suppose is why I didn't think twice about naming it that. The idea that Paul McCartney is the antichrist or the son of Aleister Crowley has about as much credibility as Paul is Dead. In the end, it's all in good fun (provided no one takes it TOO seriously), and if I saw that Paul McCartney himself took offense to it (he's never been offended by people claiming he is dead) then I would shut down the forum immediately.

Anyway, only a couple of members so far and none of them seem to be the dangerous psychopath type to me. If things get out of hand, I will step in and moderate. But on the other hand, people can swear and flame each other all they want there and I'll just sit back and laugh. Kind of twisted of me, isn't it? :)

I can tell you right now, since Paul won't ever know about it, that he would indeed take offense to a forum about his being evil.

Just a guess.

I agree. Evil and fake dead (a joke of which he was probably was in on) are two COMPLETELY different things, Jude.

Anonymous said...

I can't get behind a Paul is Evil movement because I've sen no evidence of it in his bahavior publicly. The only so called evidence I've seen is the wild speculation and interpretation of lyrics backwards and forwards on NIR, and even then all that information has to be passed through this rather arcane idea about ancient gods and occult lore. It seems to me like these are theorists trying to fit McCartney into a skewed worldview than it is anything that McCartney himself has done or is currently doing.
I do find it strange that murderers like Mark David Chapman and Charlie Manson who have openly demonstrated "evil" or a desire to hurt or destroy someone else are given the same treatment in reverse, frequently excused away as pawns or victims despite their actions.
Although I get the sarcasm of the commenter who posts here as Satan, I do find much of the PID movement to be disturbing or "Satanic" if you will in it's backwards worldview. The concept of examining someone's behavior in public and filtering them through some cosmic mumbo jumbo to reach a conclusion that is inconsistent with that person's original behavior goes against any kind of reasoning society uses to establish good and evil, whether it be the Bible or just common sense. To me, THAT is evil.

The childlike philosophy known as Dualism divides everything into paired and equal opposites. Biblically, however, Satan is a subservient angel who can only tempt humans or wreak havoc with permission from God.

Satan: "Can I try to con these people?"

God: "Go ahead. But you have to let them know you're conning them."

Satan: "How about if I call myself a phoney and give out obviously deceptive and misleading information"?

God: "That works for me."
