Methods Fan use from Beatles media francise can be applied in "Art Catastrophe Theory"

Beatles Conspiracy: Did They attempt to cover up Paul McCartney's Death?
If you see the in-depth detials the fans use to implicate the Conspiracies covering up Paul McCartney's death using Beatle media such as images, record covers, these methods are great in formuating Catastrophe Theory
See these examples furnished using images from previous Catastrophe Theory posts from this blog reused in conjunction with the Conspiracy Theories regarding the Beatles furnished by the adoring fans.

Beatles Conspiracy: Did They Cover Up Paul's 1966 Death?

When Paul McCartney was recently fĂȘted by President Obama at the White House and given a lifetime-achievement award by the Kennedy Center, no one mentioned that he may, in fact, have died years ago—and been replaced by a double. It's all part of an elaborate conspiracy theory that some music buffs have kept alive since Paul's alleged accidental death in 1966.

2. Paul McCartney (1942-1966?)

In October of 1969, three weeks after the Beatles' celebrated Abbey Road album was released, WKNR-FM's Russ Gibb took a call from a man who identified himself only as "Tom." The Detroit deejay listened as the caller carefully laid out clues hidden in Beatles' songs and album art, which he said indicated Paul McCartney had died on November 9, 1966, in an automobile accident. Listeners began deluging New York City radio stations with "evidence" and soon the rumor spread around the world. Was this a Beatles' publicity stunt, a fan feeding-frenzy fueled by clues left as an inside joke by John Lennon—or was Paul really dead?

3. How Paul Allegedly Died

Piecing together clues from songs, films and album covers, conspiracy buffs have come up with this scenario: During the early-morning hours of November 9, 1966, Paul argued with his bandmates in the studio while recording songs for their Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band album. He left in a huff just before 5 a.m. While driving to a friend's house, Paul picked up a female hitchhiker who couldn't control her excitement when she realized who was behind the wheel. She lunged to hug Paul, causing him to lose control of his Aston Martin. It smashed into a stone fence and burst into flames, killing them both. Paul was decapitated and burnt to a crisp, making a positive ID difficult. Despite no evidence to support either the story of the fatal crash or of a cover-up, the rumors persisted.

4. The Need for a Cover-Up

The Need for a Cover-Up

The theory of why a cover-up of Paul's alleged death was necessary goes something like this: Because of all the money the Beatles contributed to England's tax coffers, their continued success was vital to the financial health of the nation. So the British government, in cahoots with the surviving members of the Beatles, their producer George Martin, manager Brian Epstein (pictured above), recording engineer Geoff Emerick and road manager Mal Evans, conspired to cover-up Paul's death. It was speculated that in return they were given a huge sum of money and guaranteed success in whatever future endeavors they engaged. They all denied any conspiracy.

5. Will the Real Paul Please Shake Your Hair?

In order for McCartney's death to be kept under wraps, the Beatles would need a look-alike to sub for him. It's said they found the perfect candidate in an actor named William Shears Campbell, the winner of a McCartney look-alike contest who resembled the singer so much that he was supposedly on the Beatles' payroll as a stand-in to throw off fans and the press. The name may ring a bell from the "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" lyric on the album of the same name: "So let me introduce to you / The one and only Billy Shears / And Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band." Pictured: Paul and his double—or Paul doubled?

6. The Press Covers the Death Rumors

The press was interested in the rumors of Paul's untimely demise. A November 7, 1969, Life magazine cover story approached the issue in a light-hearted manner, rather than as an investigative piece. The article quoted Paul, who paraphrased Mark Twain: "Rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated." He then wryly added, "However, if I was dead, I'm sure I'd be the last to know."

7. "Paul" Goes Solo

Around the time these rumors started, the Beatles were in the midst of breaking up and Paul—along with his wife, Linda Eastman, and their children—retreated to a farm on the isolated Scottish peninsula of Kintyre. There Paul recorded his first solo album, McCartney. Oddly, the cover of the album shows cherries scattered among a white rectangle (possibly representing a road) and a white bowl half filled with cherry juice (which could be blood). Once the rumor of Paul's death started, it spread rapidly, thanks to other "clues" fans seemed to find in every picture and recording by the Beatles. The following are prime examples...
CATASTROPHE THEORY: This image above is a good example of a Catastrophe Theory- now while is is a "Post-Clue" which furnishes examples of images that make symbolic, artsitic interpretations that theorize that Paul truly is dead, Catastrophy Theory looks for "Pre-Clues" that can refer to future catastrophic events, but however, collecting "Post-Clues" can help us refer to identifying and finding "Pre-Clues".


8. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Clues

The cover of the groundbreaking album, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band, has multiple indications that Paul McCartney may not have survived. The Beatles, wearing their new hippy attire, stand in the middle of the cover overlooking what appears to be a flower-covered grave. To their right are wax mannequins—borrowed from Madame Tussaud's Wax Museum—of the younger Beatles sadly looking down toward the "grave."

9. The Drumhead-Reflection Cipher

The Drumhead-Reflection Cipher
Rick Theis for truTV
The ornate drumhead in the center of the cover that says "Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band" may be the most deliberate clue of all. When you hold a straight-edge mirror perpendicular to the center of the drum, in the middle of the words "Lonely Hearts," the reflection reads, I ONE IX HE ♦ DIE ("One one nine he die," or November 9 he die). The diamond points to McCartney.
CATASTROPHE THEORY:
This 'Cipher' from the Beatle's Drumhead logo is a very good clue, a DELIBERATE CLUE. Check out this band, "Admiral Twin' whose logo came in approximately 1996. When I was in NY in 1998, I read a meteor catastrophe book in the Airport, and flipped open a page that made a reference to a "Tulsa Valentine's Singing Quartet" and it reminded me of Admiral Twin.



see the strong Direct Clue in Admiral Twin's logo, which has a roman numeral of II which can pictorially symbolize the Twin Towers and the stars around it can symbolize the 5 planes that were headed out in 911, one failed, one crashed, and three made driect hit crashes, two into the twin towers and one into the pentagon.

I don't know if this is the exact book, but it did have an Meteor attacking earth and when I flipped open the book to a random page, it said "Tulsa Barbershop Valentines Singing Quartet" and it reminded me of my friends "Admiral Twin" and their logo, makes a strong direct clue to 911.

10. The Doll

The Doll
Rick Theis for truTV
Also on the Sgt. Peppers cover, a doll of a girl sits on the lap of an old woman. "Welcome the Rolling Stones" is printed on her sweater. Were the Beatles insinuating that since Paul's death, the Rolling Stones had surpassed them to become the world's greatest rock band? On the doll's right leg sits a toy Aston Martin (the type of car that Paul drove) and at its left side is a bloody driving glove.

CATASTROPHE THEORY:

See the thought-processing that the fans furnish clues leading to Pauls Death? See how the Aston Martin in a post-Paul Catstrophe album cover has a direct clue of the same car Paul drove in his death. See below how my ex-girlfriend showed me a sexual advertisements in National Geographic that reminded me of the future catastrophe 911 and a statue in Tulsa where I've lived a while makes a connection of theory


More references that leads my "train of thought" or "thought processing" that can be conjectured as clues to interpret them to make "prophetism" of the future. I remember, when I spent 3 days at Kristin R.'s apartment during my art school days she and her girlfriend were showing me a National Geographic magazine advertisements. On the left page was an obelisk of some national monument in Washington DC, very phallic. On the right page was a half-squatting girl, and it looks like when you look at both pages you can see the sexual innuendo putting both of the pages together, the phallic image of the obelisk was important to me, because in Tulsa there is an obelisk downtown, with the metal cloud on top of it and in that metal cloud on top of the obelisk were airplanes. It seems that the "ejaculation" from the penis (obelisk) were planes, and thus enter the vagina (the pentagon) and connect that with the Admiral Twin logo you also get the twin towers inside the vagina also crashed. This imagery was really important to my thought processing in my prophesies of 911. {insert image of tulsa obelisk here, perhaps others also}


Planes falling from the sky on the obelisk, and interestingly, with the re-drawn adverstisements of National Geographic, the Planes fall from the Pussy.

11. A Retouched Photo of "Paul"?

A Retouched Photo of "Paul"?
Rick Theis for truTV
A mustachioed Paul (perhaps a double hiding plastic-surgery scars) has a patch on his left arm with the initials, "OPD," which could be an acronym for Officially Pronounced Dead. In the November 7, 1969, Life interview meant to address the death rumors, Paul (or his double) explained, "It is all bloody stupid. I picked up that OPD badge in Canada. It was a police badge. Perhaps it means Ontario Police Department or something." Hardcore conspiracy theorists maintain that the photo was retouched to make the imposter look more like McCartney.

CATASTROPHE THEORY: Intials, Analograms, Numerology can make good Catastrophe Theory clues.

12. Back Cover Clues

Back Cover Clues
Rick Theis for truTV
The Beatles stand together against a vivid red background, representing blood, with the album's song lyrics superimposed over the photo. Paul stands with his back to the camera, as if he does not want to be closely examined, while Harrison's thumb points to the opening line of the "She's Leaving Home" lyric that reads: "Wednesday morning at five o'clock as the day begins..." November 9, 1966, was a Wednesday and 5 a.m. was the purported time of McCartney's car crash.


CATASTROPHE THEORY: TIme makes a very strong suggestion: 911 was a date of Emergency in which one can make an emergency phone call to the Police, Ambulance, or Firemen.

13. I Am the Walrus

I Am the Walrus
Rick Theis for truTV
Magical Mystery Tour was conceived as a television movie and album. It features both visual and musical clues starting with the group in disguise—with Paul dressed as a walrus. Allegedly, in the Nordic-Viking culture, the walrus is a symbol of death.
CATASTROPHE THEORY: the use of Mythology, Folklore, animals, persons, scenes that have symbolic references that are open to interpretation to have depth and further meaning can be a clue and offer leads in Catastrophe theory.

14. The Fab Three?

The Fab Three?
Rick Theis for truTV
In the Magical Mystery Tour film, as the group performs "I Am the Walrus," Paul in stocking feet stands next to an empty pair of blood-spattered shoes and the drumhead reads "Love the 3 Beatles" (implying, perhaps, that there were only three surviving members of the group).
In this painting done by a Japanese girl a long time ago and I got it 4 days before 3/11/11 the Japanese Earthquake Disaster, this painting resemebles the disaster in some ways. You can see, the blue surrounding the ovals thus making it look like a map of Japan for it's an island, and the bodies of waters and waterfall in the ovals representing the Tsunami.
As You see in this japanese girl's painting, it looks as if the two ovals represet Japan, an island of land surrounded by water. Curiously, both ovals have a lot of water in them- lakes, a waterfall, easily being symbolic, being a signifyer of floods, Tsunamis. Even more Curious, is the signature of the girls, name, "M.Yagi".

I have one cursive example of her full name written on a paint tube, it is hard to make out- perhaps it is "Mackoyru Yogi, or "Macboyru Yogi" or "Marboyru Yogi". Whatever her first name may be, the point is that the signature on the painting shown, says M.Yogi". This easily can correlate to the Miyagi Prefecture, where the Tsunami struck it's hardest on Japan.

15. Magical Mystery Tour Movie Still

In an irrelevant scene from the film Magical Mystery Tour, Paul in a military uniform sits behind a mysterious psychedelic sign that reads: "I WAS."


16. John: 'The Walrus was Paul'

John: 'The Walrus was Paul'
Rick Theis for truTV
On the album, The Beatles, which has come to be known as the White Album thanks to its white-on-white cover, John sings a song he wrote called "Glass Onion," an unambiguous line from which states: "And here's another clue for you all: / The walrus was Paul."


17. White Album Backmasking Clues

<i>White Album</i> Backmasking Clues
Rick Theis for truTV
John Lennon began experimenting with backmasking (adding backward voices and music) in earnest on the White Album. When played backward, one of the songs, "Revolution 9," contains a voice that seems to say, "Turn me on, dead man" several times. And what sounds like "Paul is a dead man, miss him, miss him, miss him" is heard on the "I'm So Tired" track.

18. The Let It Be Album Cover

The <i>Let It Be</i> Album Cover
Rick Theis for truTV
Let It Be was the second-to-last Beatles album to be recorded, but the last to be released. On the cover, Paul is the only Beatle whose face is partially obscured (by a microphone). He is also the only one not photographed in profile and with a white background. Paul's background is blood red.


19. Dressed for Death

Dressed for Death
Rick Theis for truTV
On the cover of the last album that the Beatles recorded, Abbey Road, the band is photographed crossing Abbey Road in London, outside of British music company EMI's Abbey Road Recording Studios. Paul is out of step with the other Beatles, barefoot and with his eyes closed. In many countries, including England, bodies are buried shoeless. Also, the way that the Beatles are dressed on the cover is said to have this meaning:
       Lennon in white - the preacher
       Starr in black - the undertaker
       "McCartney" in a suit and barefoot - the corpse
       Harrison in blue jeans and work shirt - the grave digger

28 IF

28 IF

In the background on the Abbey Road cover is a Volkswagen with the possibly cryptic message, "28 IF," on its license plate. Proponents of the Paul-is-dead school take this to mean that had Paul McCartney lived, he would have been 28 years old. Life magazine quoted Paul (the real one or the substitute?) as explaining, "On Abbey Road we were wearing our ordinary clothes. I was walking barefoot because it was a hot day. The Volkswagen just happened to be parked there."

21. Maxwell of MI5

Maxwell of MI5
Rick Theis for truTV
The theory continues: An officer—known only as "Maxwell" from British intelligence unit MI5—was assigned to keep an eye on the group to make sure that they kept their mouths shut about the tragedy. The song, "Maxwell's Silver Hammer," on the Abbey Road album, refers to Maxwell and his license to kill. This is one of many examples of a Beatles' lyric being employed in the service of the conspiracy theory.

22. Maxwell and the John Lennon Murder

Conspiracy lore says that in 1980, John Lennon was about to make public the cover-up of Paul's death when he was assassinated by Mark David Chapman—and that Chapman was hypnotized and conditioned to kill Lennon by MI5's Maxwell.

23. Paul (or His Double?) Today

Paul (or His Double?) Today
PA Photos/Landov
Since his "demise," Paul has led a full life. He has fronted a hugely successful post-Beatles band, Wings; has released several group and solo smash hits; was knighted by the Queen of England; and has been certified by Guinness World Records as pop music's most successful songwriter. Not bad for a man who's been "dead" going on 35 years. Certainly, the theory of Paul's death strains credibility, but it must have been fun for fans to hunt for clues in the band's photos, films and lyrics during the rumor's heyday.

This reminded me of Michael Jackson's conspiracy theory as well... Hmm, interesting food for thought.
