RADIO INTERVIEW — TAPE B, SIDE #1
Q: Mark Russell Bell
M: Mark Summers, WPBZ-FM 103.1 “Morning Buzz” (Indiantown, Florida)
C: Cindy, “Morning Buzz”
[UPDATE: NOW THAT I PERUSE THIS TRANSCRIPT AND FIND IT DIFFICULT EVEN TO READ, THERE IS THE REALIZATION THAT THE ONLY REASON I'D GONE THROUGH THESE 'MORNING ZOO SHOW' INTERVIEWS WAS BECAUSE ONE OF THE RADIO SHOW REPRESENTATIVES TOLD ME THAT I SHOULD BE ACCEPTING ALL OF THE INTERVIEW REQUESTS AND I THOUGHT AT THAT MOMENT HE WAS BEING 'OVERSHADOWED' (WITHOUT HIM HAVING ANY IDEA THIS WAS HAPPENING) BY MY ANGELIC GUIDE).
M: Hi. Good morning. You know, the funny thing is — or I don’t even —
M: Is it Mark?
M: Okay. My name is Mark as well and when I looked down and I saw Mark on my piece of paper I wasn’t quite sure who I was calling. It’s Mark Summers and Cindy in West Palm Beach.
Q: Hi, Mark.
M: How are you doing, man?
Q: Very good.
M: Are you ready to do the interview?
M: Is there anything that we’re promoting? Is there anything we need to make sure to mention?
Q: Well I have a free Internet edition of my book on the Internet at testament.org.
M: Oh, okay. All right, we’ll talk about that. Alright, here we go.
M: Hey, Mark. Good morning. Welcome to the show.
M: This is a pretty interesting topic. We’ve never had anyone on the show that believes they are reincarnated as someone else and that is what you believe. Correct?
Q: Yes, I was apparently a priest in ancient Egypt whose name was Bel-Marduk. He was also known as Ra-Ta the priest whom Edgar Cayce talked about.
C: Now how do you know this?
Q: Well it’s a very long story. In fact, it’s documented in my book. I do have physical proof of my previous existence. It actually began — I was working in Hollywood at Paramount Pictures and I heard about this talking poltergeist case in Oklahoma after researching that exact subject. And so, anyway, I went there and I interviewed the family. And they had this amassing of spirits in their home. I mean different spirits would be heard talking. They actually thought that there were aliens involved. And so it took me about like three hundred and twenty-five pages of my book to interview this family. They also were seen on a special entitled “Ghosts, Mediums, Psychics: Put To The Test” a couple years back on NBC.
M: So what is the actual physical proof that you have? Not that I’m questioning the fact that you’re not an Egyptian prince. I’m just curious as to what the actual physical proof is.
Q: Well there’s a picture of it at my website. It’s a small medallion — Egyptian medallion. It looks like a pharaoh but, of course, I know he’s a priest. It’s like an Italian knock-off of an Egyptian relic. Apparently, in the ’30s Italy made all these various knock-offs of some of the relics that were smuggled out of Egypt and when I saw this in a small little antique store here in L.A.—I was living near the Angelus Temple at the time—it was like looking into a mirror. Like I have a twin brother and it didn’t look like him; it looked like me because I have very distinctive eyes. It was a profile shot. It was basically myself without a beard, without sideburns and I was just (“YOU KNOW”) mesmerized by it. And I have interviewed a lot of people about reincarnation and, apparently, they too have discovered paintings or — you know, aspects of themselves in previous lives where they look identical in previous lives.
M: Have you ever done hypnotherapy?
Q: Yes. In fact, some of those transcripts are at my website. I first was having therapy because basically my friends became very concerned. I had all this paranormal activity going on around me so (“THEY”) they were afraid of demons, they were afraid — they had many fears. So, anyway, I went — they even booked me in at a psychiatric institution to have me checked out where there were all kinds of phenomena going on. And so when I was released a couple days later I began seeing a psychic psychiatrist. And it didn’t quite work out because even though she’s psychic, if somebody truly believes what they’re saying, there’s — and you’re not comfortable with it, you really can’t be of help to that person. So I started seeing a hypnotherapist who was more open-minded and those transcripts are in the book. And he, himself, had found a painting in England that looked exactly like him. (“SO”) He could understand my predicament.
C: So how does this affect your life now? Like what —
Q: Well what happened is —
M: Wait. Hold on one second. (“YEAH”) I have to ask you something right now.
M: This is a straight thought that just popped into my head and please don’t take it in any other way because I don’t mean it in any other way. But can you just go (sings/high-pitched falsetto) “hee hee”?
Q: No. I’m not in the mood.
M: You’re not in the mood to (sings/high-pitched falsetto) “hee hee”?
M: See, I think we’re going to give it — I feel — this is Michael Jackson we’re talking — (“YOU”)
Q: You almost sound like — well there’s this Entity on my tapes — because basically happened is I — when I began interviewing all these people about unexplained phenomena —
M: Hold on a second. I sound like an entity on one of your tapes?
Q: Well yes. Well so does Michael Jackson for that matter. (“WE[LL] SEE”) The main Entity at this house in Oklahoma was named Michael and, basically —
M: . . . “Hee hee”?
Q: Well, that’s one — the falsetto is very well-known, I think, throughout history. And I remember the Bell Witch case —
M: (sings/high-pitched falsetto) “Beat it. Beat it.”
Q: Well, see, in the Bell Witch case in Tennessee in the 19th Century, nobody could tell if the Spirit was a man or a woman.
M: If you don’t want to (go) “hee-hee,” just go “chickachickaaa.”
Q: I’m not good at that.
Q: I’m really more good at extolling spiritual wisdom.
M: Oh, okay. Well I’m ready for some of that.
Q: Okay. So well, anyway, I began interviewing people about unexplained phenomena and when I played the tapes back, there were small spirit messages on the tapes.
M: You don’t have a chimp named Bubbles, do you?
M: Okay. Just checking. Go ahead.
C: (small laugh)
Q: Okay. And, although I didn’t plan it this way, I realized that these interview transcripts were kind of a new contemporary bible. My friend, Fiona, who’s a psychic, was saying — oh: ‘It’s the world of spirits revealing themselves to the world of the living.” (“SO”) I basically had a lot of psychic guidance.
C: They’re revealing themselves through you?
Q: Right. It’s sort of like — the original —
M: Mark, do you know Elizabeth Taylor’s home telephone number?
Q: Well, actually, you know, I worked in Hollywood for many years but she’s one of the few people I didn’t work with.
M: Ahh. (“I”)
Q: I was working at Paramount Pictures.
M: Oh okay. She wasn’t working with Paramount at all?
Q: Well not while I was there.
M: You see — that was a trick question because if you were Michael Jackson you would have known because —
Q: Oh, I see. Do I sound like Michael Jackson?
M: — they’re good friends — Yes! I feel like I’m talking with Michael Jackson right now.
Q: Well see — (“WELL”) again —
M: And that you don’t really want to admit it and you’re saying that you’re an Egyptian prince.
Q: Well I’m white.
C: (small laugh)
M: Well so’s Michael Jackson. (“O”)
Q: That’s true.
C: (small laugh)
Q: Okay. Well, one process that is documented in the book is how new commandments were communicated to me, which sounds totally outlandish. When you real(ize) — (“B[U]T”) I’ve read in some sources—and heard about—(“TH[AT]”) Ra-Ta was apparently Moses’s teacher. And, of course, Moses was a murderer. I mean there were many mysterious things about Moses. I recently read a book by Zecharia Sitchin and in it he talks about how Moses destroyed the first commandments and it almost sounds like this was an early cover-up where not all the commandments were shared with the world.
C: Well, Mark, I really want to know how has this affected your life like what —
Q: Oh — my friends aren’t talking to me.
C: Your friends don’t talk to you.
Q: The media is not publicizing the book. I mean how the media has responded to me shows the extent of how self-interest rules our lives and motivates cover-ups to occur because the so-called journalists I’ve contacted are afraid to write about me because they’re worried about other — what others will think of them. (“AND”)
M: Well I think they think it’s just because there are so many frauds out today . . .
Q: That’s right.
M: . . . lopping you into that category so I mean . . .
Q: Right. I mean we already have —
M: . . . your job to convince the rest of us you’re . . .
Q: That’s right. Yeah.
M: You know — to tell us whether or not you are or aren’t —
Q: Well that’s why I have the website. You know? Because there’s so much documentation there. But — (“THEY’RE”) they’re worried about what others will think, basically.
M: Let me ask you a question. Are you lying? Is this all a fraud?
Q: No, it isn’t.
M: Okay. See? There you go.
Q: In fact, that’s why it’s free. I’m not even — I’m not making money off of the Internet edition of the book.
M: But you’re making money off the book-book.
Q: Well in my book — what happened is Spirit basically said that I am only to be reimbursed for my expenses and that the family in Oklahoma who I consulted with would get all the profits. Even though to date I think I’ve sold less than a hundred copies in the last two years. The metaphysical distributors are afraid to touch it and, of course, we all know what outlandish books that they distribute. And, of course, metaphysical radio shows are afraid to touch it like “Sightings” on the radio and Art Bell’s show. I mean this material is too much for them so —
M: Let me interrupt you real quick here. What we’re going to do — what we do with a lot of the interviews that we have that are kind of quirky like this one is — what we do is we play a game on the radio that we call “Morning Buzz Real People.”
M: What it is, is where we let one person—like you—tell your story in, like, ten or fifteen seconds and then what we do is we play a couple of other stories that we’ve made up and the listener has to determine which person is actually telling the truth.
Q: Oh, okay, well I haven’t had much to say so far.
M: Well what I’d like you to do is just very quickly, you know, just say your name and where you’re from and who you are. And (or “AND”) —
C: And that you have discovered that you’re a reincarnated Egyptian deity.
M: And then, see — and then what we’re going to do is we’re going to go — we’re going to finish up the interview, you and me right now, and — see, we’re not on the air right now. We’re recording. And when we go on the radio—to get people’s interest into it—we first turn it into a little game. And then after the game is ended, we actually play the interview.
Q: I see. (“WELL”) Will you — I hope you will tell them about the testament.org —
M: Oh yeah.
Q: — web address.
M: Definitely. So, whenever you’re ready, you know — first name, last name, where you’re from and what you are.
M: Whenever you’re ready, go for it.
Q: Okay. My name is Mark Russell Bell —
M: Actually, do me a favor —
M: — if you could just speak up nice and loud and just say, “Hi, my name is Mark — ”
M: Whenever you’re ready.
Q: Okay. Hello, my name is Mark Russell Bell from Los Angeles and I previously lived in Egypt as an Egyptian priest. I was Moses’s teacher and, through him, communicated some of the original commandments. And, recently, I’ve compiled a list of ten new commandments. Actually, I like to call it Advice because nobody seems to take the word commandments seriously.
M: Okay, excellent. Good job. Now, okay, do me a favor — tell me quickly, what are a couple of these new commandments that you found — advice for people of the 21st Century?
Q: “God is a Socialist. Meat is murder. God is gay. Thou shalt not litter.” And one that was in the Bible but not on the list of ten — about loving God with all thy heart.
M: I have a sinking feeling why I understand — I think I know now why your book isn’t selling too well.
Q: I would agree with you there.
M: People are afraid of the truth.
Q: That’s right.
M: And people are afraid of Michael Jackson too.
Q: I guess.
M: Yeah. Because he talks the truth.
Q: Does he?
M: Um-huh. (“WELL”)
Q: Well that’s interesting. I’ll have to listen to his songs more carefully in the future.
M: Well let’s go ahead and give your website address —
M: — so our listeners can go ahead and check it out and see what they believe.
Q: Okay, it’s testament.org. You don’t need the www.
C: So just testament.org.
M: Excellent. Mark, it was nice to meet you, my friend.
Q: Thank you.
M: And good luck in whatever your Egyptian prince life takes you.
Q: I’ll need it. I’m not Monica Lewinsky.
M: (hard to hear— Alright?)
Q: Okay, bye.
