VWX Town Thoughts 03

Added a stream in front of the Power Tower Gowlery, a shorter version of the one in the original VWX Town in Rubi this May. The swift flow helps better define Southside from Central to its north, and keeps Central’s kids from running amok in the Power Tower Gowlery all the time. At least that’s what Southsiders claim — about the kids running amok I mean. This stream was later ratified by the town’s first official meeting, which strangely and even suspiciously, I personally was not invited to. Instead Hucka Doobie took my place as representative for the “outside”.

The town now has an official bar: the return of Hole in the Wall, also last seen in Rubi. Furry Carl is still within, now offering summer beers in his cursing manner. I wonder if Knok will show up there again like he did before? Today or tomorrow I think I’ll go shopping for free or very cheap stuff over at the SL marketplace — maybe find me some more cutouts of things like Carl, Bean Mister, and the like.

Interesting bridge between the Stairs Gallery building, still in development, and Big Boy tower. You’re suppose to call it just Big Boy and not Big Boy Tower, and if you attach the word tower to it in writing you’re suppose to make the “t” small. It’s Big Boy or Big Boy tower. Hucka Doobie, who took the minutes of the first meeting (maybe that’s the only reason they invited *him*), reinforced this to me. And he says to not chafe the Centrals, because they’re a rough crowd and tend to harp on details. Not like the totally anal Westenders, he added, but still they’re pretty bad. Can’t wait to read these minutes.

Town map added in front of the ToXic Art Gallery. Or is that ToXic Art *gallery*. Have to ask Hucka D. when he shows up — he’ll probably know by now.

Well, this is as good a spot to bring him on in and talk about more changes that have taken place before and after the first meeting. Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

It was a confusing meeting, baker b. Confusing to me. You just built this town in the last week, but citizens, like Cardboard Derek Jones, have a memory of the place spanning decades, and he might even claim he was born there. He said he was raised a Central boy, but then moved to Westend when he “grew up” or “got wise” as I believe he put it. Oh he has to come to Central all the time, since there’s precious little in Westend. He has to attend the Temple of TILE services over in Southside since that’s the only place of worship in town. So he talks bad about Central and Southside all the time, but really that’s where he hangs out more. This was brought up at the meeting: Biker Jones — apparently no relation — puts him down at one point by saying he’s never even seen him in his beloved Westend, and then playfully adds that he, however, doesn’t go there much to see for himself because there’s nothing there. This particular strain of vehemence started when Central’s “Core of Four” decided that House Greenup was taking too many prims in the town for its ultimate worth, which they said wasn’t much. Oh you should have been there, baker b. Cardboard Jones started cussing and cussing, saying he thought the Greenup collages were better than anything in Southside and Central put together, and that he had read Floydada [book inside House Greenup, attempting to explain the collages] over and over again, since that’s about all they had to read in Westend, not having a proper library or anything. Then he adds that he didn’t really *understand* it all that well, but he’s read it again and again still, and that there’s some mighty important things in there for sure. The Core of Four pressed him, and since he couldn’t produce anything of substance, they voted to get rid of House Greenup, replacing it with a more modern and prim saving museum with art to be determined at a later date.

bb:

Was there anyone else from Westside at the meeting? And isn’t it Westside instead of Westend?

Hucka D.:

Yeah, sorry. Should know that since I took the minutes. (Hucka D. then places his hands on the side of his head in shock) Holey moley, I hope I didn’t make that mistake throughout the minutes!

bb:

You better check now. We’ll return later. I’ll add some more pictures to a new blog entry and we’ll continue in a moment. Go ahead and take your time.

Hucka D.:

Thanks! I’m shaking in my boots thinking what Derek Jones would do to me if I published them that way.

Okay (VWX Town Thoughts 02)

“Hucka D., I sense a rivalry between at least Central and Westside, and probably between Southside and the other 2 as well.”

Hucka D.:

Correct! Cardboard Jones obviously champions the west. He lives there! Behind the eyes, but not between the eyes, you see. You see? baker b.? (pause) Town meeting… aw never mind. I’ll put up some pictures.

Westside’s certainly proud about their newest structure: The Gallery Behind the Eyes.

Yet another Baker Trap (I think Knok may live in that garage in the background here; Knok’s a Westie?!).

VWX Town Thoughts…

Hucka D.:

I hear you want to call a town council meeting soon, baker b. Good idea. Who will attend? I will attend. Baker Blinker? Will you divide into Baker Bloch and Baker Blinker[ once more] for this meeting? How ’bout Karoz? And Bracket Jupiter — remember him? Remember the last 2 VWX Town meetings? Disaster! Remember? baker b.? (pause) Anyway, they were. Who attended? Basically ghosts, right? Right? (pause) Right? Plant, you there? Marty? (pause) Town meeting! Town meeting!!

baker b.:

Sorry I’m late but I got caught in a net over on Highway 18. Butterfly trap!

Hucka D.:

That’s all right baker b. (pause) baker b.? Oh, there you are behind me.

baker b.:

I’m behind you.

Hucka D.:

That’s all right. About this town meeting…

baker b.:

Well… I want to avoid the problems of the Rubi meetings.

Hucka D.:

Knok’s in town. He has a knok knok joke for you.

baker b.:

What is it?

Hucka D.:

Um, he’ll tell you in person soon. So that’s one person that’s already in town, just like he was in New Pietmond, both versions. He likes your towns.

baker b.:

“For some reason,” I thought you were going to add.

Hucka D.:

No!

baker b.:

The Table must be reset up. Like I had in, oh, Siliconicus I suppose.

Hucka D. (correcting):

Mysten. You had a table and a house. A Table House, yeah. Do you want to set that up again? We can do so.

bb:

Okay.
