The Winged Beetle 5/5

The final installment, that is to be continued, has appeared on YouTube.

TheWingedBeatle 5/5
contains no new revelations, but like the other 4 videos, helps to clarify some of the "clues" from the Rotten Apple Video Series that were often difficult to interpret.

During my first viewing of the video, I grew concerned that the voiceover person had been laid off, but sure enough he returned just a little over two minutes in. As I review these installments, I must admit that in terms of documentary format, PID has never been done better. There are even credits at the end and I am pleased as punch that I was thanked. I did risk a lot for young Iamaphoney and stood up against some scary text to protect his name. When this whole thing started, Mike NL was only 18 years old and now all these years later, he is something like 18 years old.

The credits list one Tom Moht (who probably plays the Thom Toms) and one Ken Knott (who cannot be identified) as receiving special thanks.

One peculiar thing jumped out at me as I watched this video for the first time. The narrator was saying, "Mal [Evans] was on the phone with his good friend from the Beatles days" and then his voice cuts out abruptly and picks up with a new sentence. He most certainly said the name of the individual in question, but it sounded like it had been edited out. The good friend from the Beatles days was most definitely Ken Mansfield who described the phone call in "The White Book." Mansfield is currently a Christian speaker and evangelist. This is his web site.

It's great to have a new Iamaphoney recording. It's not the most catchy thing in the world, but if you play it backwards you will hear that it is based on the very catchy "All You Need Is Love."

On that note, let me peruse this set of five videos again, and I hope to talk to you soon.

Despite the dumbing down of the documentary format, many questions remain - not the least of which is what the hell is a batty conk?

If you are like me and miss the trippy, ambiguous and downright creepy work of Iamaphoney, just take a look at this new video that Paul McCartney released to his fans officially:

Paul McCartney - A Trip To Lagos

This man they call McCartney never ceases to amaze me.

New Video - TheWingedBeatle 1/5

A change of direction? I'm not sure there is anything all that new here, but this is the most straightforward retelling since the Documentary Version of Rotten Apple 65 that slipped out briefly. There seems to be much more detail and coherence in this new format. It will be interesting to see how this all unfolds.
