A new video called paul is dead - the rotten apple 420 by HeweHaarlemmer is another look at an interesting picture that recently appeared at "The King Is Naked." It seems to show two (or three) Paul McCartneys. The same image was explored in Paul McCartney-Here,there,everywhere-Rotten Apples 3 by dark66horse. As in all photographic evidence, the opportunity for fakery is high and one's perceptions can be influenced by the power of suggestion. Of the three individuals who resemble Paul, only the one in the center shows a full profile. The person on the far right is wearing a jacket similar to one that Paul wore on several occasions, but his face is turned away from the camera.
Much has been made of the individual on the left with the drink in his left hand. If this was taken in 1968, it does not look much like other pictures of Paul from that time period. One individual who was very likely on that boat in 1968 would be Apple Records Executive Ken Mansfield. Notice the picture below, which shows Mansfield with similar length hair (albeit parted differently) and a drink in his left hand.
The image has prompted some good conversation at Nothing Is Real as well.
Maccaspan2008 did an excellent job on this new fan video for the song "Heaven On A Sunday."
This homemade video is very appropriate to experience in the calm before the storm. Someone asked me about this big Iamaphoney deal that is rumored to be happening within the next two months. I can tell you that I have not received any incentives to participate in any kind of rise of expectations, although that doesn't necessarily mean anything. I tend to report things after the fact (well, I guess I am using the term "fact" liberally).
So, I have not received any news, hints or rumors about a major Iamaphoney event, but my gut is telling me something different. There is definitely some activity bubbling in the world of the Beatles over the next two months. It doesn't quite feel like springtime in my neck of the woods, but I sense there is magic in the air. I heard the 10-minute version of "Revolution" on the radio yesterday!
Oh that magic feeling, nowhere to go. I suggest that you stick around and do what I am doing---Hitting the chisel and making a joint, gluing my fingers together. And when the work is done, I'm cooling my fingers in the bay...
Other recent activity includes...
I am He by Sunssol.
