If you have the MMT vinyl album, go to the page of the banquet(which is not in the movie). Hold the album sideways with the man's beret at the top and stand back about 10-15 feet and see what you see. In one of my early posts I suggested some friends and a few beers! Anyway someone has to hold it.
My conclusion of this photo being in the album is that The Beatles had to approve it so as it has nothing to do with the movie it is deliberate and IMHO proves the hoax!

Ah gotcha. So it is that creepy skeletal face that seems to appear with the beret as one eye. I'd assumed this was a coincidental simulacrum.

You had me excited there for a sec, bro, thinking 'hang on, I never realised this. Maybe Paul did die'!

Then I remembered John is referring to who was in the Walrus costume in MMT, and whether he was for or against the Walrus or the Carpenter that he hinted IATW was about.

I think...lol

That's Mr. Buster Bloodvessel.  He's quite harmless.  He thinks he's the courier.  Last trip he thought he was the driver.

Paul had a geodome in his garden at St. John's Wood where he used to write and rehearse music with the other Beatles at times. I think they called it his Glass onion. Cool!









Thanks for reminding me about that, Dave.

Love that geodome. Do those photographs suggest it had a floor that went up and down? If so I'm triple jealous.

Yes...

Maybe that's the hole he was fixing that keeps his mind from wandering.

As I've found out he got the idea while hanging out with Robert Fraser of the Indica Gallery so it must have been in his head for quite a while before he built it. It originated from a conversation about Paul stating that he needed a "folly" and he was always interested in shapes. It says it cost 10,000 pounds to build way back when. It was designed and built by Digby Carswell Bridges who now lives in Florida.
