Paul and Ringo are sometimes like that together. Paul doesn’t always take the lead, and he will often keep quiet while Ringo is speaking, which is respectful anyway. It might seem a little curious, but I think this video has been put together with a deliberate objective, and there are many examples of the reverse kind of behaviour.

I found a second video of the same event, and apparently that guy who made the PID video just cut out all the parts where Paul was talking, making it look like Ringo was the only one talking. Pretty shoddy…a-hard-days-night-ringo-14

Hang on, did you just say you don’t see the resemblance between Paul and Jim?

And yes, very serious…

Anyway, it’s bed time for me. Good night, sleep tight.

  

The only resemblance I can see between Jim and James Paul is the eyebrows. Not even the eyes are that similar, and everything else is not really similar enough.  Paul’s Dad looks more like Al Stewart or Eric Idle than he does his son, frankly.

Fine, I’ll give it another bash. But only because it started to Rain (I don’t mind… but I just washed my hair paul-mccartney)

Firstly, that hearth is not 2 inches high. I’m a woman, I wear heels, I know the difference between one inch, 2, or even 5 (the latter being: very sore toes). That hearth is one inch at most.

How can that hearth’s height be determined, when we can’t even see the bottom and the floor relative to its top?  What we can see, however, is the legs & shoes of Paul, and his shoe soles certainly don’t look a mere 1 inch down relative to the hearth top.  More like at least 2 or more inches.

No, definitely the nose and mouth are a little similar too, especially in that first picture. And of course as Paul’s aged the outline of his face has become more similar to dear old Dad’s.

I just can’t see it.  There are so many things people see and hear online with audio & video/photos that I can’t for the life of me see or hear.  Am I going mad??? (I hope the staff at the Sanatorium will allow me a little garden plot outside my cell…)

Six days after the Drake University student newspaper published the infamous “Paul is dead” article, the Northern Illinois student newspaper plagiarized the story. They have now retracted the story and apologized to Paul and to the Drake paper for the plagiarism.

I wonder if Tim Harper is still alive (he’d be at least in his late 60s).  I’d ask him if he just thought this idea up by himself, or was it “in the air” already and he was just running with it?

From Joe’s page…

Harper later claimed that he wasn’t the original source for any of the claims in his articles. He said he was writing for entertainment purposes only, and said he got the information from a fellow student, Dartanyan Brown. Mr Brown is said to have got the story from a musician who had heard it on the Californian west coast, and that he also read the story in an underground newspaper.

Dartanyan Brown is alive and kicking. https://www.dartanyan.com/About_Me.html His email address and phone number on there if anyone is so inclined to ask him about the rumor.

Tim Harper is doing well for himself…https://www.journalism.cuny.ed…..im-harper/

Wow I think I’ll contact Dartanyan — he’s probably weary of people pestering him over the years.  Joe’s description is the equivalent of clearing up a smoky room by blowing more smoke into it (nothing against Joe, just the nature of the strange story).  Thanks @Ahhh Girl

James Delingpole is moderately well-known in the “Alt” world of social media. He recently interviewed the arguably #1 Paul is Dead conspiracy theorist out there, Mike Williams.  Williams has a theory much larger than Paul, involving the Beatles themselves as a “creation” of the Tavistock Institute.

I’m not a believer myself, but I don’t necessarily reject everything he says.  The main problem with Williams is that he seems to have created a cocoon or bubble to insulate himself from criticism — he gatekeeps his websites and YouTube channel comments, and as far as I know, he never gets interviewed by anyone who isn’t already in agreement with him.  If he wants to be persuasive to a larger audience, he should submit himself to long critical interviews.

Never heard of this Delingpole before now, he’s a real peach – climate change denier and anti-wind power too.

Delingpole says at one point in this interview that friends & colleagues he knows who are on board with all the other conspiracy theories (911, never landed on the Moon, etc.) recoil at the Paul is Dead conspiracy. a-hard-days-night-paul-7

The Forum used to have a guy who was a moon-hoax conspiracist, Billy Rhythm; he had a lengthy argument here with IntoTheSkyWithDiamonds, whose book of the same name contrasts the Space Race with Beatlemania.

Guess what — that guy finally emailed me.  However, in his email, he didn’t answer my question, he only invited me to subscribe to his substack — which I did.  I’m trying to figure out a fairly non-obnoxious way to pester him about my question.

Here’s his substack:
