Two minor characters in our little mystery have been asserting themselves lately with some interesting results.
Late last year, S3ANL3NN0N joined the fray of YouTube phony-Phonies with videos that borrowed from the Rotten Apple Series. Iamaphoney of course has released re-edits under a bunch of different accounts, and so it is difficult to tell if we are dealing with an Iamaphoney alias or an independent person. The S3ANL3NN0N videos don't seem to use the same style of editing as the Iamaphoney videos, but they certainly seem to use the same footage and music. There is a much greater emphasis on John Lennon, but the Rotten Apple Series seems to be moving in that direction too. I don't think that these videos are part of the Rotten Apple group, but I was surprised by a shadowy figure that a perceptive reader noticed on the right side of the screen a couple seconds into a recent video called "Get Back."
The John emphasis continues with the most recent video entitled, "So let it out."
Miles Denton Oliver, aka Miles Deo (Miles Miles Denton Oliver?), aka Mr. Oliver, aka Uncle Miles has entered a new phase after the exiguous Project Petticoat. My earliest memory of Miles was his initial appearance at the Nothing Is Real Forum with claims of a (censored) note containing clues to a Manson family secret (See previous blog entry).
Miles, in his current incarnation as CultureBat has produced a couple interesting videos.
The Fireman is no mason
The LOVE Case
Is Miles hinting that his secret note had more pages?
Some perceptive Grammy Awards watcher at Nothing is Real captured this glaring error on the broadcast during the list of music people who died in 2008. I hope they didn't get that photograph from Apple.
Uh, that's not Neil Aspinall. That's Mal Evans, who died in 1976 at the hands of the Los Angeles Police who believed he was threatening them with a gun. Although excerpts from his diary were published in 2005, his book "Living the Beatles Legend" has never been released. Boy, if any of us were conspiracy buffs we could have a field day with that one.
