UM

“Carr., last night yet another Uncle Meatwad resonance surfaced in Fringe — and the wife and I were thinking about it at the same time (!).”

Carr.:

Yes I heard. Do not do another interview unless Uncle Meatwad is out there for others to view. Your choice. Karl is playing it cautious. Understandable. Either keep it to yourself for now or allow “out there” for others to view as a whole. Don’t just put the pressure on[ delete name].

bb:

Yes, I think I’ll tell Karl that tonight. But you see how…

Carr.:

But you see how important it is to get UM out there. It should live. It is the last of the positive carrcasses and also the first of the negative carrcasses. It is both. It is neither. Last… first. I am Olive.

bb:

And you still love Peter.

Carr.:

Yes.

The oval or *olive* shaped theatre might be the only Collagesity building totally enclosed within the new skywalk from an overhead view. And it’s brown, matching the color of the skywalk’s connectors. But the theatre from this view might also be said to just touch it (“kiss” it) to the northeast. The Path of the Red Flower has now been closed off by the back of the theatre. The structure, still unnamed (the Meat Dome?), likewise touches the World of Collages building to the northwest, and also comes within 2 or 3 feet of the Sink Lair, again to the northeast.

Actually as I’m looking inside, I’m reminded that one set of stairs from the former path still lies directly against the north wall of the theatre, with a red flower at the top and another one near its bottom, at the back door…

… and then another one is found right at the front door as well.

Snapshot1962_008

Looks like this might be, then, The Theatre of The Red Flower, or probably Red Flower Theatre or just The Red Flower.

The complementary walk to the Red Flower on the south side of Central Stream has likewise been decommissioned through placement of new structures Gallery Jack and Wappo Jack’s Castle there. This would be the former Red Shroom Trail.

Tough but necessary losses both.

3:30AM update:

Been playing around with programs that convert VOB files to MPGs. I’m pretty sure I can create a viewable MPG of Uncle Meatwad to play as a dropbox link, which means it probably will also play on a prim in Second Life. I believe I’m not even going to try to upload the resulting MPG to Vimeo or especially Youtube because of the involved copyright violations. It is a time capsule. But I’ll still allow people to view it through this blog I think — and in Second Life. The Red Flower Theatre is about to, UM, flower(!).

Then I want to do a detailed analysis of UM, just like I create for my collages.

Also I have to get my new computer hooked up again. Been using my older Dell formerly in the basement for about a week and a 1/2 now because the new one wouldn’t boot up correctly. We’ll try out some possible solutions in the next several days. Else I’ll have to take it in to the campus computer lab to let them look at it.

Carr. Talk Again

Carr.:

Wappo Jack was my fiend. Friend. My friend.

Baker B.:

Well, that’s a pretty impressive castle he has there. Takes up a considerable amount of my prims.

Carr. (correcting?):

*My* prims.

Baker B.:

You are ruler of this town. Correct?

Carr.:

Corr. ect.

Baker B.:

What’s your relationship with Wappo Jack?

Carr.:

Friend. Played tennis together. Swam in creek. Leeches. Jack picked them off of me. Friend.

Baker B.:

That’s nice[ I suppose].

Carr.:

Friend.

Baker B.:

And what about Jesus of N. and Piet Mond.

Carr.:

Less friends. More fiends. Jack and I battle. He built his castle to control battles. Grays verses Browns. Slaughter. Then Olive Branch. I be here[ in this diner/museum].

Baker B.:

Are you jealous of Jack for having such a big place?

Carr.:

Palace. (pause)

Baker B.:

Then you are jealous?

Carr.:

No. We live together. Married.

Baker B.:

Err, with Jack?

Carr.:

Yes. (Carrcassonnee attempts a smile)

Baker B.:

Well, that’s wonderful. And you’re…

Carr.:

Yes [we are still married]. (pause) Jack invented Newton and Jasper. You can say they are our children. Hi mom. Hi dad. And so on.

Baker B.:

Is [Jesus of N. your child]?

Carr. (quickly):

No.

Baker B.:

And I [suppose Piet Mond isn’t your child either].

Carr. (again anticipating Baker B.’s question):

No. (pause)

Baker B.:

Carrcassonnee, I attempted to set up a movie theatre in the formerly empty central building of the Crystal Fields. But there isn’t too much to these fields now that more buildings have been inserted.

Carr.:

I wish to see Uncle Meatwad. Show Uncle Meatwad.

Baker B.:

Yes that was my intention. But the file wouldn’t play.

Carr.:

Try harder. Uncle Meatwad.

Baker B.:

Okay I’ll try it again soon.

Carr.:

Tomorrow. I hear you are interviewing Karl Song. He will not enjoy the blog. He thinks you are mad. I am [instead] the mad one (Carr. attempts another smile here).

Baker B.:

This is our second attempt. I’m going to give him a lot of rope this time. I screwed up the last one.

Carr.:

I heard. Sing him a song to soothe. He likes tunes. He is a tale tune spinner too[ like Collagesity resident Joe the Guitarist].

Baker B.:

Quite a mouthful.

Carr.:

I talk to you because you work hard and play harder. I attempt drink. I see double. I see song and tune together. Strummer. Joe. Rock on. Rock the[ Casbah?]. (I believe Carr. attempts to even sing a bit here).

Baker B. (after Carr. finishes “singing”):

Very nice. So we know for sure that’s Wappo Jack’s castle, and maybe his gallery, since it’s Gallery Jack. But it wasn’t named for him originally. Instead it’s…

Carr.:

Don’t say it. Seven eleven.

Baker B.:

Time to go?

Carr.:

Yo.

Afterwards, Baker Bloch watches a short animation in the theatre. He’s getting there(!).

Carr. Speak

Baker Bloch teleports down to the Red Umbrella. In looking over at this corner, he’s reminded he needs to ask Carrcassonnee about the UmbrellaStar fellow over in the Pond District who visited Collagesity the other day.

Snapshot1129_001

But upon checking in at the Temple, Baker finds Carrcassonnee busy with Hucka Doobie again. Yeah, he’s been inworld more lately. I’ll speak further about that a little later on.

Hucka Doobie notices Baker Bloch

bb:

Carrcassonnee, they’ve taken away my classic view in WordPress. I don’t like.

Carr.:

Ahh, you’ll get use. (smile)

bb:

Thanks for the encouragement. How’s Hucka Doobie doing? He left suddenly when he saw me.

Carr.:

He’s asking important questions about SID’s 1st Oz, I know.

bb:

That’s another thing I want to ask about. Obviously I’m heading toward SID’s 1st Oz in the 6 part baker b.’s journey through the golden age of synching.

Carr.:

Good.

bb:

But I’m not sure yet that I can really focus in on SID.

Carr.:

No.

bb:

So I’m thinking about Uncle Meatwad instead.

Carr.:

Yes (!)

bb:

So that’s…

Carr.:

Yes.

I figured Jesus knew all about sacrifices. “Jesus?”

Carr.:

Yes?

bb:

Not you Carr. Jesus.

Carr.:

I am all deities now in Collagesity. I am the Speaker. Capitalize that in the blog.

bb:

Alright, *Carr.*, let’s talk about sacrifice.

Carr.:

You do not know much about that[ yet].

bb:

I’m thinking of sacrificing Uncle…

Carr.:

Do it. Sacrifice. Jesus concurs as well.

bb:

Ramifications?

Carr.:

None.

A little later on I found out that Hucka D. was diving deep into SID’s 1st Oz instead. Replacement.

I deleted my last post about The Rainbow Sphere, SID’s 1st Oz, etc. (I saved it to my blog, however). I’m going to attempt to tie theories more into information from existing posts here, and also material in the newer podcasts. Karl has the most exhaustive theories and reviews so far. Thank you Karl for continuing to be such a strong supporter for the film/album synchronicity phenomenon. It seems we kind of have a shared canon of works coming from the early 2000’s. I would definitely include Being Geddy Lee in this mix even though it is highly manipulated, and I’m looking forward to Dave’s upcoming, reshaped podcast as previously stated.

I was going to make a couple of comments about Karl’s “Simultaneity II” post, but I don’t think we can progress much further than we already have until some future podcasts are cleared. Afterwards we might have a better perspective for moving forward. I would greatly urge Karl to create a new podcast as well — it would help shape and refine his theories on a/v synching, allowing others to better understand what he’s attempting to convey.

An idea popped in my head while thinking about this whole synchronicity vs. synchronization debate: a “looking glass” particle linking the two. On one side you have the viewer and on the other side the creator. But there’s a blend or continuum between the two; they’re not separate entities. And the viewer can shape what is being viewed — become part of the creator — and visa versa. How about that theory? Any thoughts? What do you think Karl Tune, Mirror Living? This would be akin to the quantum physics idea of viewer/viewed interaction on a sub-atomic level. The basis would be heightened emotions. It’s very interesting how strongly we are affected by certain synchronicities. This would apply to group viewings (of the same synch) and group creations as well. We must better define the creator, the created, and the viewer.

Some of the speculation on this would sound a little crazy. I’ll give an example. Is it possible that Randy and I were subconsciously affecting each other across time through a “shared” synch involving “Sing’n in the Rain”? Look at the components, and how we were drawn to similar, matching tracks for similar reasons. We both found “wow moments” and backtracked to a beginning cue. We both let it stand as is otherwise (the “1 drop synch” — great term again!). Was it fate at this point in time that this matching was found? What is it saying; what are the deeper implications? Or is this just a randomly occurring confluence, deserving no additional attention?

We can see this particular configuration as a triangle:
Sing’n in the Rain (shared video segment; top of triangle) – Dancing with Myself (Randy’s audio) – Standing in the Rain (my audio).

I’m going to add one more thing here. The concept of tiling as I’ve been practicing it for over a decade now absolutely *shatters* any a/v synching theory based exclusively on synchronization. There’s no turning back from this.

Then a follow up in the same thread:

Additional note: I’m on for a new podcast. Karl, like I said… just do it. I’ll have an example work to demonstrate the process of tiling and high oddness without possible “synchronization”. 🙂 If you would like to see this work, actually a 2 parter composed of 1 hour mixes each, let me know and I’ll drop you some links. This 1st part is called Empire Strikes Brak, and the second half is Uncle Meatwad. It’s a mixture of funny and tragic. I’ll also give out a blog post link on the subject soon. I’ll also catch up on all the podcasts asap. Look at websites, etc.

So the cats kind of out of the bag now. 🙂

Empire Strikes Brak = Carrcass+0
Uncle Meatwad = Carrcass-0

These audiovisual synchronicities work either together or as separate pieces. The second begins where the first ends (“into the light”). I’ll have more details about these works soon. They’ve been referred to quite a lot on this blog lately, and that’s why I thought they’d be good candidates as example synchronicities in my projected podcast coming up. Many characters from Collagesity also appear in the synchs (and visa versa of course), or, more specifically, Carrcass-0/Uncle Meatwad. Here are some pictures of what I’m talking about. Excitement!

Why would Lennon play the role of Salieri? Out the Blue; Jealous Guy; How do you Sleep?; Imagine. I suppose because they worked as partners.

The community was named for President Benjamin Harrison, due to a large wood mill and stop for mining boats coming off the nearby Coeur d’Alene River.

If odd, crazy things become consistently common…

… well, I think you know what I’m getting at here (odd crazy things turn into common ordinary things). Like this image I found while googling “‘Baxter County’ Arkansas map” just a minute ago, before logging in here. It was in the 5th row of hits, about 29 images down. But it stuck out, you see, because of my recent mentions of Hand in relation to this county (posts immediately below this one), and how Hand lies at the center of the lower line (Arkansas Line) of The Way and assoc. with the hand of Sgt. Pepper, et al.

Hand of Oppotubity

A very odd picture — it represents an upside down map of the county since the Missouri state line is to the south instead of the north where it should be. Here’s the web site it’s from:

http://ozarkshistory.blogspot.com/2010_12_01_archive.html

Here’s the first of 3 posts on the subject from Vincent S. Anderson’s Ozarks’ History blog:

http://ozarkshistory.blogspot.com/2010/12/white-river-development-association.html

The map on the hand is very stylized and not accurate in scale atall, although the directions of the listed towns on the fingers and wrist roughly correspond to (reversed) directions away from central Mountain Home, the county’s seat and largest city. The actual former village of Hand, now inundated by Norfork Lake (SEE: Billville) would lie somewhere in the space between the pinky and the ring finger, I think.* Is there even a connection between this kooky map and the name of the Hand village itself? Probably not, but I thought I’d just mention it anyhoot. Hand *Valley* (also called Head Valley) would lie just beyond the tip of the index finger, near the junction of the Buffalo and White Rivers. Master Shake (also just mentioned in the post below) mouths or “channels” the phrase “White Buffalo” in Carcass-0, which is then equated with a white spaceship with “horns” containing Plutonians. Let me see if I can pull a picture of it up even — and before I forget, Master Shake is also very white. Check out the last section from the Quetzalcoatl wikipedia article here; I’ll highlight the key words:

The British author Graham Hancock published a pseudo-historic theory that Quetzalcoatl is a being that is shared across many cultures including Egyptian, Aztec, Mayan and Olmec. The stories of a bearded white man bringing “knowledge” are alleged to be common, and sprouting from a central source or “master” culture. (Source: Fingerprints of the Gods, Graham Hancock, 1995)

Quetzalcoatl was a known “master” jester or joker as well. Is Master Shake Quetzalcoatl in disguise as it were? A knowledge of Carcass-0 would be helpful here, but I can’t relay that information. Perhaps a study of Carcass-0 is in order.

Just down the White River from Hand Valley is Buffalo City, where the Buffalo and White Rivers actually meet. The next population place on the White River down from this junction is Cartney, which reminds us that it is Paul McCartney’s *head* on Sgt. Pepper that The Hand lies just above. And then just downstream from that, continuing down the White, is Shipp — a reference to the Plutonian ship or “White Buffalo” again? Cartney would lie about in the fingertip at the top of the Baxter County “map hand”.

* White Buffalo reference in Billville Guestbook:

http://www.firesigntheatre.com/bvhtml/guestbook/guestbook044.php

The “River of Buffalo” is described starting at about 11 minutes into the below video, and “the trip” ends about 1 minute later with the last mention of “white buffalo”, just before the phone rings (in Carcass-0, this corresponds with us seeing the white, Plutonian shipp ship). Master Shake channels “white buffalo” of 11:13, mentioned above. God I love this new blog!
