Harmless Games

The two people who have been considered the Peter and John of Iamaphoney disciples both uploaded new videos in the past week or so. Jude, the one who traveled to Mexico City a couple years ago for the sole purpose of trying to cross paths with our hero, has now become an Iamaphoney satirist under the moniker 36EdujYeh. Like all of Jude's videos, Rotten Apple Training Series Vol. 1: How To Be a Phoney is well-conceived and worth watching. I think it blows the lid off of something or other. At least that is what the video under his other identity RockXLight promised with The Revelation. I guess Jude now has the dubious distinction of being the only Iamaphoney lid blower who failed to reach some sort of settlement immediately before blowing off the said lid. Sorry Jude, but you made fun of Iamaphoney and that goes against my religion, so N0 BL0G M3NTIONS F0R J00. But Jude's frequent partner in crime (well, discussion groups) MikeyNL1038 has taken an entirely different path paying tribute to Iamaphoney with a cover of "Harmless Game." It is a nice clean recording and well worth checking out by fans of Iamaphoney or those who like to hear songs created by playing other songs backwards.

Shaggily, I believe that "Harmless Game" is an accurate way to describe the Iamaphoney phenomenon that has been enjoyed by many people including myself. Aside from a couple bumps in the road, I have always felt that the Rotten Apple videos have been delivered in the same spirit as the Beatles' Harmless Game that was centered around the album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

For those of you who don't believe that Jarvtronics of Nothing Is Real is on the correct path to solving the Beatles mystery, consider that both Lewis Carroll and Edgar Allan Poe played harmless games in their art. "Alice In Wonderland" was a game of cards.



"Through the Looking Glass" was a game of Chess.



"The Gold Bug" was a treasure hunt and cypher game.



Look at the way Paul aligned himself with Poe in the video for "Band On The Run" in the McCartney Years.



The video also has a shot of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band plus Brian Epstein between two pillars just like the High Priestess Tarot Card. Note the contrasting colors of the two pillars.



Just as Carroll kept referring back to his work hoping that people would "get it," all four of the Beatles have continued to refer back to Sgt. Pepper throughout their careers. (See previous post)

The Beatles must have been big fans of Alice.



Iamaphoney knows they were big fans of Alice. Apollo C. Vermouth knew it too.



Yes, that's Ringo as the Mock Turtle in the 1985 production of Alice.



Jarv has found a great deal of significance in Paul's song "C Moon." Paul has revisited that song many times in his live concerts over the years. He even made a special radio commercial to promote it when it was released as part of double A-side single in 1972 with "Hi Hi Hi." [Incidentally, isn't there something magical about repeating a word several times----Just like in "Through the Looking Glass" when the Queen said with her voice rising each time "'Much be-etter! Be-etter! Be-e-e-etter! Be-e-ehh!'" or was that the Beatles' song "Getting Better" or was it "Hey Jude"? Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice!]

Paul not only played the song C Moon frequently, he also explained it frequently. L7 was from the song "Wooly Bully" by Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs and it means SQUARE. Chess Boards are made up of lots of squares. Ringo learned to play chess during the making of Sgt. Pepper. Indeed he did. C Moon is the opposite of the square L7. Opposites are what you see through a looking glass or through the ties that plasticine porters wear.

There is a chess piece that moves in the shape of an "L" called the Knight. George Harrison makes the shape of an "L" on the back of Sgt. Pepper.



The chess piece called the knight looks like a horse. George's record label looked like a Dark Horse.



As Jarv pointed out, George even did a parody of the Sgt. Pepper cover for his Apple album "Dark Horse" even going as far as to feature Babaji, who is also on the cover of Pepper.



Yoko Ono prefers to play with white pieces.



Did you notice the game board on "Band On The Run" from the McCartney Years?



Yeah, it's a game all right.

And by the way, what the hell is this?

Gotta say I'm put off by these endless pseudo connections of Beatles with certain artists like Lewis Carrol and Poe because they are surrealists suited to the PID topic. Yes, Lennon loved Carrol and Poe and you can hear some of that influence. But the Beatles went beyond their influences to create something unmistakably "Beatlesque." The Beatles also loved Rock & Roll. They wrote some great art songs, but when all is said and done they were a rock band and they will be remembered as such. Eric Clapton, who knows a bit about music, said, "I don't know where all this talk of the Beatles being a great 'Pop Band' comes from. I've always regarded them as the premiere Rock & Roll band."

You can co-opt fragments of their massive catalog and try to force fit them into a kooky PID, occult, UFO, or other theme, but only by ignoring 90 percent of their musical output as if it doesn't exist. How do "Tell me Why" or "Back in the USSR" or countless other rocking songs fit into this fantasy? Cribbing from lyrics or images to align them with one's ideas is exactly why there are 6,000 Christian denominations. They can cite any given passage (or reinterpret it) to suit their philosophy. It's not an even-handed or fair-minded way of approaching the Bible or the Beatles, and one would have to be contemptuous or ignorant of both to engage in such things.

There is so much more to the Beatles--musically and otherwise-- than most of the PID crowd will admit or allow.

The hand sign is very important, it is Masonic, both walking from the water is the dichotomy of man, the tattoo that says 'imagine' is a reference to thought becoming reality. This whole thing is bizarre shit.
I know they were in Hamburg in the early days but by chance did Paul ever visit Berlin? My suspicion is the Cold War was going on and the connection being that Crowley was closely associated with three British intelligence operatives, one of whom was Kim Philby who defected to the Soviets in the 60's.

So nice to see you back in action here. Always appreciated.

The line of inquiry pointing to a jolly game has its merits. Something not so jolly is five bullets in the head delivered by the LAPD.

There's a fairly high degree of certainty that Mal had the distinction of being the only subject of a domestic disturbance call in the history of law enforcement to have had such a deliberate send-off.

So...wonder why that was?

Ummm..actually that sort of thing is way more common than you think. Look it up.

Anonymous said...

To "look it up"...

Maybe I was too vague. I meant to reference the realities, rather than the obsessive media representations, of close-range gun battles.

Five rounds to the head, if indeed my memory of seeing a reliable citation regarding that in Mal's case is correct, is unlikely to the point of absurdity to have occured during the normal application of deadly force needed to subdue someone in those circumstances. (Mal was armed, I believe, with an air-rifle)

I mean, just in terms of accuracy at a mobile target, things begin to seem less than accurately reported. The scenario most suggested is one of execution-style follow through.

Which again raises the question -- why Mal Evans?

So, I agree with you that fatalities on both sides are all too common in domestic disturbances. This one though reeks of a hidden agends.

You would like the "pleasure" of knowing someone's actual name here? really? No one knows anyone's name here hypocrite. Do you know Iamaphoney's name? The person about whom this blog is written? Do you know Tafultong's name? The person that writes the blog? Do we know YOUR name, the person who posted the response? Let's hear it since you've decided that no statement is meaningful or genuine unless we know your full birth name.

I've posted here numerous times under "T" which stand for Thomas (which I have said a million times), and I don't even have to bother with that, now do I?

Why would anyone interested in accuracy where names are concerned-- but not the least bit concerned with accuracy as it concerns the Beatle or Paul McCartney make such a statement?

And what, pray tell, was random or conceited about the previous post? Is there nothing conceited about talking Beatles 24-7 and how you think they are all about Lewis Carrol and Edgar Allen Poe? We call that "obsession" where I come from. Put up or shut up.

You have nothing.

Nothing whatsoever to prove or even give a semblance of proof of PID let alone Paul was into Magick.

Would you like to show me some grainy pictures of Paul in 2008 that look kinda different than pics of Paul in Hard Days Night in 1964? Thanks for the info.

Got something that would merit an article in the New York Times? How about your local newspaper? No? Didn't think so.

Just because the truth hurts you in your Star Wars-like obsession with Beatles/Magick doesn't mean it isn't true. Sorry you wasted years "investigating" something that has no basis in fact.

Anyone that watched 100 RA videos thinking something was actually going to come of it other than some teenager yelling "Fuck" in a video stashed in a briefcase is an idiot, and had it not actually happened (oh, yes it did) you would have thought it ridiculous otherwise.

See you at RA #79 for the laugh track of the year.

And in case you weren't paying attention to the Rotten Apple series, go back to the very first one and watch very carefully.

Anonymous said...

whew...might as well go the distance here.

I was not referring to any aspect of Mal's death other than this single one:

Accuracy under specific conditions.

Just that. For those of you who aren't firearms aficianados I'll just suggest that you apply some imagination to those events.

For example, imagine what happens to a human body that has received ONE .38 slug to the head.

It is on the floor within the next second.

So, what? The other four rounds were squeezed off in that one second, tracking only the head on its way to the floor?

I'll refrain from more of this. It's just that it seems a sign of courtesy under these anonymous and inconsequential conditions that some of you took a misunderstanding of my original comment seriously enough to dispute it.

And I agree with your disputations. The thing is that they don't apply to the point I've tried to make.

If you look into the RFK hit closely, it becomes difficult not to believe the rumors of an LAPD unit closely affiliated with the intel crowd, and in place now for decades.

The ballistics of Mal's demise suggest that there's some possibility that such a unit was involved, not the usual personnel who would normally responded to that kind of call.

Because those officers would have had no reason to shoot Mal four times in the head after having subdued him. Nor would they have had the power to bury the resulting ballistic evidence.

To me this is one of the few outstanding historical facts in this whole circus.

- who had what reason to eliminate Mal Evans?
- why would this reason have any relevance for the upper echelons of covert power?

I really welcome evidence or reasoning contrary to my take on these matters. So I've done what I can here to be as clear and specific as possible.

Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't Mal Evans waving around a shotgun and yelling after police repeatedly demanded he put the firearm down?

Anonymous said...

Not a shotgun.

From Wiki: Hughes then phoned the police and told them that Evans was confused, had a rifle, and was on valium. Four policemen arrived and three of them, David D. Krempa, Robert E. Brannon and Lieutenant Higbie, went up to the bedroom. They later stated that as soon as Evans saw the policemen he pointed the air rifle at them. The officers repeatedly told Evans to put down the rifle (which they did not know was an air rifle) but Evans constantly refused. The police fired six shots, of which four struck Evans, killing him instantly. Evans had previously been awarded the badge of "Honorary Sheriff of Los Angeles County",but in the Los Angeles Times, he was referred to as a “jobless former road manager for The Beatles”.


Sounds pretty routine to me. You get stories like this every day in newspapers all over the country. The only difference is that it was Mal Evans and therefore some Beatle obsessed fans want to add significance to it.

Anonymous said...

Interesting. I always got the impression that the Beatles never thought much of Evans. Listening to interviews where they mention him it's always "Oh that was Mal" or "Mal Evans screwed up". I'm not saying the Beatles were dicks but it sounds like they thought of him as being a little slow or dimwitted but kept him around because he was a mate from back in the Cavern days. That might exxplain why Lennon laughed when he heard that Mal's ashes had been lost in the mail. Sort of like "Oh that Mal, can't even get his death right". He was loyal to a fault and the Beatles were certainly loyal to him when they were together but I don't think they showed much respect for him.

Evans (surname)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Evans is a family name. Within the United Kingdom it is the 8th most common surname, being most common in the city of Swansea, Wales. Within the United States, it is ranked as the 48th-most common surname.[1]
[edit]Origin

Evans is of Welsh origin. In its anglicised form the name means "son of Evan". Regarding its Welsh roots, it is a derivative of the name Ifan, a cognate of John.[2]
It is a misconception that the name Evans is a patronymic name. The name does refer to Evan-S, meaning son of John, however, in this case the name refers to the fact that many Welsh were late converts to Christianity and around the 3rd Century AD a huge evangelical conversion began. Converted followers took the name of Son of John (the Baptist), in reference to the John the Baptist as the baptiser of Jesus Christ and considered a cornerstone of Christian conversion. It is possible that later some did take it as being the son of their father called Evan (John), but the extended use of religious forenames being converted into surnames by the addition of "s" of Son (Jackson, Johnson etc) does not account for the huge popularity of this name in this part of the world (South Wales).
In the Welsh language the patronymic "ab Evan", results in the surname "Bevan", which is also common in Wales.

Aspinall The name Aspinwall had its origin in an Anglo-Saxon place name, which when first given was apparently intended to describe some natural feature. It signifies the "aspen well" -- the aspen well, or spring, or source of some stream which gushed forth amongst the aspen trees.

Interesting. I always got the impression that the Beatles never thought much of Evans. Listening to interviews where they mention him it's always "Oh that was Mal" or "Mal Evans screwed up".

If you listen to Lennon's Rolling Stone Interview from 1970, you'll hear him disparage just about everybody in the Beatles circle except Mal. He even made a point of excluding Mal from the wrath he was somewhat recklessly putting out there.

Lennon Remembers link


I believe Mal was working with Lennon at the time. Does he mention him in the round of interviews he did in 1980?

He's also nice to Phil Spector in that interview who he was working with. I think he trashed all of his former associates, even George Martin was not spared his wrath.

There's a fairly high degree of certainty that Mal had the distinction of being the only subject of a domestic disturbance call in the history of law enforcement to have had such a deliberate send-off.

Hmm . . .apparently someone hasn't watched the news since the 1970s.

I stand corrected, it appears.

My brash assertion re the five shots to the head met with enough disdain to send me in search of the source quote.

Ain't none; I know I saw that somewhere, and remembered the source as one of some credibility. But memory can play tricks, and I have found nothing to support what I was on about.

The thing is...it just feels like there's more to all this than a hoax or an elaborate game. (see, for example, Mark Chapman, Wackenhut, World Vision, Lebanon, incongruous travel funding, etc.)

So I occasionally jump in here hoping that by prompting examination of some especially tantalizing clue, pieces might begin falling in place via multiple points of view converging.

Silly me...

who had what reason to eliminate Mal Evans?
- why would this reason have any relevance for the upper echelons of covert power?

Those are loaded questions, presupposing Mal was "eliminated" and that the "upper echelons of covert power" (oh brother) ordered it.

Anyone familiar with NIR and PID already knows the presupposed answer: Mal was murdered because he was going to tell the world Paul was dead.

This presupposes a) Paul died and B) Mal was murdered

No one has come close to establishing that Paul died, or that any such clone-like surgery was possible in 66 or even today, or that anyone could be trained to become a major rock star and the best in his field, never mind copying the speaking voice, mannerisms, etc. 24/7 for decades.

Yeah, it seems some people (141 out of 333, to be exact) haven't caught on that there is an end result to that ten minute training video nonsense, even though the end of the video clearly states "see video response".

They were both originally two halves of the same video, but what can you do when YouTube only gives you ten minutes to work with? Really guys, I'm flattered that so many people have enjoyed the Rotten Apple Training video, but I'm waiting for those 141 people to watched it to catch on to the real joke of the matter: namely "Grandfather Aleister is Dead and YouKnowAllOfTheNamesofthemUnfreshRottenWitches231/666". Either they just didn't feel like watching another video I didn't make it obvious enough (though I don't know I possibly could have).

Anyway I'm thankful for all who have watched the videos, and hopefully there will be a Rotten Apple Training Series: Volume 2 someday..

From 1967-1969, Paul McCartney, whether on film in photos, or in person, was seen by billions of people around the world including practically every musician, doctor, plastic surgeon, counter espionage expert (on all sides of conflict), physicist, police sketch artist, conspiracy theorist, and all of the UK. Yet not ONE of these people ever stated they thought he was a different person.

No one from the UK ever said that Paul's voice post 66 didn't sound genuinely Liverpudlian. These ideas didn't come about until well after the Death Clues emerged, which obviously means the power of suggestion is at work. I never heard anyone say Paul was a replacement or a double until the last six years or so, and don't know anyone in the 70s (for example) that ever thought Paul looked, sounded, or played like someone else.

The magical adventures of Lily and her big brass band

Lily worked in a shop full of sweets. The children told her they'd rot her teeth so she pulled out the front two.

The next morning she ran away, hitching a ride on the back of a masculine young fox. They went to the Zoo, where she and him drew pictures of the moon.

The poor girl looked ever so sad and wanted to go back home. Her neighbours would never recognise her with those big gaps in her gummy mouth.

Nevermind. Lily eventually joined a brass band with Danny and Pete.
They were a right pair of little bastards and it was a real pity that she had to spend time in their company.

40 years later and out comes the picture book. It all seems much better now it's all dated and stamped. Still, what the fuck was Lily thinking when she ran away on that bloody fox? Muppety hairy shit bag!

Sometimes, Lily looks out of her window and wonders what might have been. Milk men, paper rounds, walks in the park, Sunday roasts, etc, etc. Losing your teeth can be very hard and lead to bad things and all sorts of nonsense. Breathe.

The fox never got over being called a shit bag. He still feels a bit for Lily and hopes the trials prove to be worth it. Whether they will or not, who knows? He certainly doesn't.

He does know how to cook excellent jelly though. The end.

There are tons of photos of the Pepper photo shoot and nowhere do you see Mal Evans wearing the blue jacket. There is a picture of Paul with his back half turned, taken just before the one where his back was all the way turned. Why would this be the case? "Hey Paul, let's do a picture of you with your back partway turned so that thirty years later when people see it they'll know it's you on the cover?" Why didn't anyone ever say that was Mal, or did they I hadn't heard about it?

Did someone from the photo shoot tell you this or where did you hear it? That would be some amazing Beatle trivia if true.

I can't believe that this hasn't been brought up here before, or has it? This is trivia from about 30+ years ago. As the story goes, Paul couldn't make it to one of the Pepper photo shoots, so they substituted Mal for this particular shot, putting his back to the camera. Not sure I believe the part of Paul not making it to the shoot, I imagine they would have just rescheduled, but that is suppose to be Mal on the back cover. Why? Dunno. Maybe they just wanted to accommodate Mal? Maybe they just wanted to mess with your mind?

I don't see why it is so hard to fathom Mal being on the back of Pepper. That fits well with The Beatles' mindset. Although Paul didn't die, no one can deny that his "death" wasn't hinted to. That is just another one of the "clues".

Yeah, but there was only one shoot, wasn't there? You can see from the session shots that they already had all four of them lined up on the back with the real Paul there--how hard is it to take a couple of pics of Paul with his back turned? There is an existing shot of Paul with his back partway turned, doubtless taken just before or after the full back shot, so i think that story is apocryphal.

What makes you think that all the photos from the session were made public?

"I haven't seen that one, so it doesn't exist."
"It doesn't make sense to let Mal put on the uniform for one photo."
