“Alright…

… Cardboard Derek Jones. Have your way.”

CDJ:

Thank you. I’m here to talk about the architectural history of Westside.

(Voice from back of the small audience (yelling)):

There isn’t any. Get over it!

CDJ:

Ahem. Thank you *again*. Let’s start with the Wall of Eyes and attached Gallery Behind The Eyes. What’s there?

(Same voice):

Nothing!

CDJ:

Er, well, yes there is something there. There’s eyes, for one thing.

And you get the gist of the rest, Hucka D. CDJ just couldn’t pull it off. Tough crowd. He went on to talk about the eyes were from Carcassonne, and the heckler yelled to him to give them back because they aren’t worth anything in Westside. Stuff like that. He couldn’t get to Gallery None, even — the name is an obvious setup (for jokes). There’s really nothing in Westside, and I’m afraid there never will be, what with the emphasis on Central front and center now… as it were.

Hucka D.:

As it is.

bb:

So what do I do? Just ask Westside to join Central and Southside now — eliminate the sectors altogether?

Hucka D.:

Maybe. Where would your town tension come from, then?

bb:

CDJ would cooperate with the Core of 4 to make VWX Town the best it can be. All centers on The Table in many ways. We know that Dr. Blood is Ray Davies from the future — handy information.

Hucka D.:

Yes. You must protect the Sunklands Initiative at any rate. Think of re-creating Sunklands in a different virtual setting. That’s your goal. Pietmond Forever!

bb:

Guess so Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

So if CDJ isn’t or can’t talk about Westside architectural history — since there really isn’t any — can we *finally* move to the Kidd Tower. Logical progression: it’s just inside the Westside territory and represents the first *real* building in VWX Town just heading from that sector, down that path.

bb:

Westside still has some promise. I don’t think it should be gotten rid of just yet. But obviously there’s nothing in it presently, really.

Hucka D.:

The most important thing is that Ray Davies is from there, or rehearses there, and probably lives in the garage in the sector. Ray’s on Cardboard Derek Jones’ side. But… to Kidd Tower! What do we have here? A thick slice of Jeogeot and Middletown history. Middletown is the largest city of Jeogeot past, present, future. It was huge, simply huge. You cannot imagine. You helped in the building. You built a sector *there*.

bb:

The Kidd Tower originally existed in Middletown. When did Middletown become Meddletown, or did it ever?

Hucka D.:

Obvious. When Dr. Blood entered the picture. Dr. Blood organized the Kidd Tower so that MaN was eliminated. The Kidd was just a kid.

bb:

Kidd Tower’s always been attached to Tower of A. Mann and Big Boy in past, present, future.

Hucka D.:

Good, yes.

bb:

Is VWX Town a slice of Middletown?

Hucka D.:

Yes!

bb:

The philosophy of Middletown — give this a stab tonight — Middletown itself started in the M and N. 3 sims of basically the same name — all starting with “Yeo”. Three clustered around the M and N level, the 13th and 14th of the vertical column of Jeogeot recognized by Middletown priests, scientists, artists.

Hucka D.:

Yes. (pause) Middletown.

bb:

Big E or Biggie was found on the shores of the Korean Channel — called the Korean Channel at first — and taken directly west to Middletown — this M and N centrality. From it was distilled the Kidd Tower. Was the X-Spot Gallery around then?

Hucka D.:

Yes! (pause) Or no.

bb:

I just had Baker Bloch walk up the whole Kidd Tower, and he thinks, through me, that the intersection with the Simple Wunderlich pictures may be the most meaningful part. Here’s his blog:

And his big zoo is actually in a sim caddycorner to Philudoria [home of VWX Town], to the northwest. Interesting, eh?

Hucka D.:

Simple helped you with Middletown, plain and simple.

bb:

Middletown was too simple of a name. Too Simple. So Yuja moved in and changed Middle to Meddle to add spice and interest. Complexity. 2001-Echoes was probably born here. The monolith of the movie comes from Big E (!)
