The Bigfoot/Chesterton art event is pausing for now with the very successful marble race test this past Sunday. A new marble legend has been seeded: Ol’ Plugg’n Yellow, who was the most consistent finisher of the 10 or so marbles I tried out that day. Not too fast, not too slow. Just right; another “goldilochs” situation, like with Greenilochs in last fall’s Bigfoot marble race. LINK But perhaps a truer goldilochs this time, since the colors match up now. Yellow/gold.
Interesting: as I was looking up the word “plugger” online just now, my flash player plugin froze my computer up for a moment. 😮
What do I take away from the event so far? Well, there’s the very interesting separation of Chesterton North, where the focus of the marble race was on, and Chesterton South, which turned into an observer of the event, in effect. To me, this means that the latter has more potential for growth beyond the present situation. Lisa Simpson, aka Lisa the Vegetarian, may get her own office space in the town. There was a very late push to unite the two bergs a bit with a curved piece of wood procured from the press box of the old high school football field up at the Plateau of Raw Art — but it was only a token gesture, most likely. Maybe there isn’t any deeper connection to develop between North and South. It’s another wait and see situation.
Linking curved piece of wood “pointing” to Chesterton South’s central pressure cooker “building” in background, then:
“Hucka D., I was wondering if I could pose a couple of Chesterton related question to you?”
Okay. I’ll give it a try.
Carrcassonnee has stated that I need to take my focus away from Chesterton for a while.
That is true[ enough]. Chesterton has its own spirit. You know him — the cheetah?
Sure. Should I talk to him? He’s never given much information out about the town.
Groovy. I’ll get him.
Chester (appearing from behind a white curtain):
Groovy. Cool-i-o, daddy. State your questions man.
Chester, what is in the future for Chesterton? Is this really the true manifestation of Edwardboro and Project POPE? Like the original Bigfoot Proper event was Pope Project, a preparatory event, like John The Baptist paved the way for Jesus of Nazareth.
Died for your sins. Neat-o.
Is this what Lisa the Vegetarian wants to negotiate — with you maybe?
Over there Lisa? Lisa the Cool and Groovy and Chilled?
