show i can all

Old Reading Man and Little Reading Light were the first to arrive, and, big surprise, each whipped out a book from their deep pockets and began reading.

What LRL was scanning had more to tell. St. Croix’s Diamond Keturah, but the Keturah was missing. A seismic activity earlier in the day had temporarily erased it from the island’s map. But the name would return soon enough. Such things always do.

Later, Biker Jones and Ranger Johns guarded the entrance to the meeting room, keeping out riff raff like the “reading twins” as they jokingly called them. “This is an *action* room,” they said to Old Reading Man and Little Reading Light after arriving themselves, telling the the two to remain sitting in their seats and just keeping on doing what they’re doing and stay out of it.

Meeting room. Action galore. Tronesisia led the charge, but many more straggled in between 7:47 and 8:01, with Carrcassonnee the last to arrive, saying she’ll just, “squeeze her big butt in against the wall over here,” as she put it. So: Carrcassonnee lives!

Others present, going counterclockwise from Tronesisia: (floating) Wyn Galbraithe from Lapara, Cardboard Derek Jones (no relation to doorman Biker Jones that I know of), Redbot, Old Man Baby…

…. and then, continuing to circle around, Carrcassonnee, whom we’ve spoken about, then, er, I guess that’s Doogie Martin (?), then Grey Seal who just wallowed out of the nearby sea to join in, then Furry Karl (another resurrection?!), and then a figure most commonly called Pietmond Boy in the blog, I believe.

Let’s pause here before continuing the character introductions to gander at two art pieces on the wall, the first hung directly behind the seated Pietmond Boy. It might be familiar to regular blog readers, being, at the base, the same as the famous painting “My First Sermon” by John Everett Millais, mentioned in Martin Gardner’s “The Annotated Alice” as probable direct inspiration for Tenniel’s illustration of Alice riding in a train in chapter 3 of “Through the Looking Glass”.

But there’s some twists here. Parts of what appears to be *another* picture bleed through around the edges in mysterious, blobby patches. We see the image of several ducks — or at least their heads — just behind or beyond the seated girl, for instance.

And then on the opposite side of the door from this, a now sideways Bunneh 02 and his egg and candle holding cushion cover up what appears to be another figure, perhaps from a bathing beauty poster, say, like in a mechanic’s garage.

Then continuing our introductions, we have Ben Thar (Mr. Bean cutout, actually) beside the Bunneh 02 art, then Bluebot (counterpart to Redbot across the room), then Second Lyfe founder Philip Linden standing behind Tronesisia in the corner, and lastly Ross C., another robot who may be a servant or some equivalent to the central Tronesisia.

Out in the hallway, yet another robot, named Claude — a golden hued gezzer made in ’25 — attempted to do the unspeakable to same just before the meeting (about 7:47). To excuse him *just* a bit, he *does* remember Tronesisia from Bennington when she was a mere pleasurebot and not the important and distinguished Collagesity novel character she’s known as today. But at any rate — and very justly of course — he was then promptly banned from the Meeting Room by Tronesisa who obviously spurned his advances. Get to reading the Collagesity graphic novels, Claude! Tronesisia has come a long long way from where she use to be back in those dark days.

Claude was only there because his perpetually smoking and toking brother Punky was acting as receptionist for the gathering out on the front porch. Claude had to drive his sibling around since he lost his feet in that rabbit tossing accident in ’92.

Punky was also known for his womanizing ways, and, similar to his brother, made little to no attempts at hiding it. Many times they had fought over the same “floozy dame”, as they sometimes labelled them.

In yet another room of the house, Original Eve (still macabrely clutching her dead child Oliver), Pigpen from the Grateful Dead, and couch sitting Norris/Harry waited for their chance to join in. It never came.

Nor did it for the 3d Venuses who just showed up at 8:15 with *way* too many friends and were barred from these kind of meetings for life.

In the Pond District today:

Axis found a black and white girl slumped against a Rodentia dumpster but did not know who she was. She didn’t open her eyes.

Tealie woke Jiff up in a bad mood, who did not wish to play right this minute.

So she instead goes to visit the grave of her old friend Matthew Lodenwald. What a blow to the community when he died!

Bob Richards continues to reads scrapbooks of the war and laments how he will never see his beloved Alpha again. Oh dear, looks like Li’l Bob’s jumped out of his crib.

Uncle Doomed drinks Jack Daniels in front of the neighbor’s Blob until passing out.

Lucas Smart tries to figure out how his life went so wrong.

Chris Caveman lumbers out of the Rodentia Underground, worse off from the experience.

In the local arcade, punk band Story Room prepares to play Cruise Control with newbie Grassy Noll, snickering about whether he’ll even make it out of the first turn.

Also in the arcade, Bill (Wheeler) confers with Rocky Racco about her most recent name change and move to Iris. “Heterocera is still at the fore of my research,” she reassures the learned writer. “I haven’t forgotten about Olde Lapara Towne, Collagesity, VHC City, or any of the rest.”

“Good, Wheeler.” He scratches his nose with his free paw. “Did you know that my cousin Tealie now lives in this area?”

Bodega? Analysis 07

“I think we may be able to finish this off tonight, Baker Bloch. Good work!”

“Thanks.”

“How are your hands?”

“Fine. Neck’s getting a little sore, but it’s okay.”

“We are at ‘see title 02,’ comparable to ‘see title 01a’ in that we have an image in the collage uttering the actual title: ‘I’m Old Gregg!’. The image is that of Twin Peaks Agent Dale Cooper, h0wever, and not Noel Fielding’s Old Gregg character from ‘Mighty Boosh’ again.”

“Right. It’s Dale Cooper. But the twinned women to the right and left kind of reminded me of Old Gregg.”

“Put a picture of Old Gregg up for all to ogle.”

“And the red curtains are from the Black Lodge again,” Baker Bloch furthers. “The whole collage, I suppose, could  be set in the lodge. 3 parts.”

“A kind of triptych. And more difficult to compose that the others (in this exhibit). You actually had Old Gregg’s head superimposed on one of those similarly colored women at one point.”

“Right. Lots of going back and forth with images and positions for this one, Hucka Doobie. ”

Hucka Doobie studies further. “So Genesis album figures reappear, just like we had in ‘Pageturner’ to begin (the exhibit). They’re — let’s see — split into 3 pairs according to panels this time. We have more explanation of what’s going on, perhaps.”

Baker Bloch looks as well.

“Well, Baker Bloch, we have framing, tall legged red people on either side to begin, man to the right and woman on the left. They are ‘presenters.'”

“Alright.”

“What is presented or displayed? 3 panels yes. A triptych, red and blue-green being the dominant colors, a clash of Boosh’s Old Gregg and the Black Lodge’s Red Room from Twin Peaks. A clash of comedy and tragedy perhaps. Genesis reappears (as stated). The inspector of ‘Detective Drunk’ comes back in the centre, inspecting the unusually small head of Duke from the Genesis album of the same title. This would be before ‘Invisible Touch’? Please check, Baker Bloch.”

“Okay.”

“And then… so the inspector has found something to actually inspect in this one, Baker Bloch. A real mystery with a real truth within. Patty Duke? Patty is another famous twin cousin through her ‘Patty Duke Show’ from the 60’s. Another thing to check there, Baker Bloch.”

“Mounting up!” he playfully complains.

“The central figure Dale Cooper has one hand over his eyes, as if blinded, and another holding a dart that points to, well, sometimes the viewer of this collage I suppose. Like here LINK.


Gregg Oden or Greg Ogden.

“Or here,” Baker Bloch adds. “Although in checking it’s not quite as obvious in this one.”


“Thank you for inserting those pictures. Do you have the further links I requested?”

“Okay, the ‘Patty Duke Show’ is here, and I can’t remember the other thing you requested.”

“Neither can I. Moving on, then. We have the two hands of ‘Twisted’ reappearing in the present collage. They seem to present the duplicate women to the right and left of the central Dale. Front of hand to right; back of hand to left. This is past and present, like Windom, Kansas (in the present) replaced Laura, Kansas (in the past). This is most likely the action of Bowie in some guise. How powerful is Bowie? He’s possessed poor little Wheeler and sent her to jail (for example). And he wanted Baker Blinker for same. Laura of Twin Peaks is similarly possessed, like with demons. Bowie fought a demon both in Omikron City and, as Little Tonshi Ashokan and perhaps others, in Olde Lapara Towne. That demon’s name there was and still is Astarte, disguised as the name of a Second Life sim (and moth butterfly). You are still running from Astarte. That’s most commonly called Astaroth in Omikron speak, both beginning with ‘a star’. This is Bowie,” Hucka Doobie reinforces.

“Right. Thanks. I suppose I gave Bowie so much power because he’s the star — or will be the star — of several and perhaps many future (audiovisual synchronicities). Beyond ‘Peewee Big’, and beyond ‘One Pink’ which he’s also in as Philllip Jeffries.”

“Heading to Philadelphia instead of Pittsburg, yes. East not west. But still witches all around. Oz.”

“We should end there, Hucka Doobie?”

Hucka Doobie looks again at ‘see title 02’. “Not quite. The (Baker Bloch hands Hucka Doobie a slip of paper) — thank you — *’We Can’t Dance’* figure feeds not a Lamb here, as in ‘Pageturner’, but seems to stroke the seaweed like hair of the unknown woman looming above him — it. Renaldo McDonnell applies hairspray to her hair in the same panel. It’s unusual hair in that it’s glowing. We can assume it’s the same as the seaweed type hair of Old Gregg, more unusual(ness).”

(note: later we both realize it is representation of Olde Gregg’s glowing manjina as well)

“Okay.”

“And then, as I’m looking, even the hand to the extreme left seems to be touching her hair, as if in admiration of its feel and look. But, let’s see, in the right panel, the Renaldo O’Donnell’s hairspray is heading the wrong way — away from the woman’s hair. The attached big hand is forwards instead of backwards (perhaps not admiring so much). Wilson Wheeler Wheeler Wilson again, I would venture. Forwards and backwards. Left and right.”

“What about the dart?” asks Baker Bloch, trying to move the analysis on.

“The dart is pointed at the viewer,” Hucka Doobie repeats. “The viewer could be the same as the woman. You found an Old Gregg avatar in Morrison, along with a Donnie Darko. They may even be lovers created for each other. Maybe tragic lovers. The dart may indicate that the woman is Old Gregg in truth. The other, then, could be Donnie Darko, who appears in the (audiovisual synch) *before* … well not quite before, but in another of your bigger synchs. This weighs in. Bowie knows. Investigate with your investigating feet.”

“Thank you, Hucka Doobie. Good job.”

“Yourself as well.”

Bodega? Analysis 06

“We’re skipping over ‘Danny’s Magical Room’ of the present exhibit to go to ‘Detective Drunk.’

Pink elephant again. Holding a book called Truth, seemingly, which could be the same as character Rocky’s recently published novel called ‘Bible Truth’. He’s another Olde Lapara Towne character, based on the raccoon you found in the town’s central hotel. I believe he was the bellhop.”

“More of a receptionist, actually, if I’m remembering correctly.”

“Anyway, he worked at the hotel (Grand Lapara Hotel) and also lived there, apparently in a crawl space. But then you got him a prim and proper house — of sorts: the small mushroom house still present in Collagesity.”

“Yes.”

“… but then was destroyed by the same atomic explosion we talked about before? Explain it in your own way, Baker Bloch.”

“Well, Rocky is a novelist, with first book published called ‘Bible Truth,’ as you said. Then a play based on the book was created at around the same time. But in *my* book it is stated that Rocky is not the true writer of that. Someone else.”

“But Rocky’s book is based on the McCartney song ‘Rocky Raccoon’. From The Beatles album.”

“From the ‘White Album’, yes,” Baker Bloch clarifies.  “And only afterwards did I learn of Rocket Raccoon, who is apparently super famous these days through those action/adventure movies. Kind of like Salad Bar Jack.” Baker smiles.

“Right. Anyway, back to ‘Detective Drunk,’ a detective, a Sherlock Holmes wannabe, wants to inspect the book and attached pink elephant, but his cliche magnifying glass is instead replaced by a martini. He gets drunk instead of solving mysteries.” Hucka Doobie inspects the collage closer. “And there’s, let’s see, several images of Noel Fielding appearing, one where he is The Moon from ‘Mighty Boosh,’ another personal favorite of yours. Then several more from his Boosh follow-up, ‘Luxury Comedy.'”

“Yes.”

“I must ask: Does he know the Truth? The magnifying glass needed for true inspection has been displaced to (Timmy) Duncan’s face to the left here, creating a faux elephant’s nose. Elephants remember — they store memories away as if in a trunk or dossier. Your Ellie the Elephant, for example, remembers in detail the creation of the parallel Bermingham forest and the moving of the village from (original to doppleganger). ”

“Right.”

“Is (Timmy) an elephant?”

“I don’t know, Hucka Doobie.”

“Anyway, the framing images of ‘Detective Drunk’ are from the ‘Return to Oz’ movie, and, parallel to this, the 2002 synch ‘SID’s 1st Oz’.  This would be Dorothy Gale to the left, and enemy or foe Head Nurse Wilson to the right. Another Wilson. And paired with another Wheeler. For example: here LINK. I would venture that Head Nurse Wilson (note: this is actually Witch Mombi, the Oz equivalent of Head Nurse Wilson in the movie) is your Wheeler in a jail cell, checked in power by Dorothy to the left. This may be Baker Blinker, who has gone through her period of complexity and has emerged fresh and pure in an Oz-like place of sanity and peace. Wheeler is still learning this lesson.”

“Okay.”

“This is Truth.”

“Alright.”

“I think that’s good enough for this one, Baker Bloch, except to say that some of these images reappear in Audrey’s Bar toward the end of the last novel, when Chef/Inspector Petty busts in and demands to know the truth about Renaldo O’Donnell. Another big mystery, and yet to be solved.”

“Another night, as you say. Moving on, Hucka Doobie!”

Bodega? Analysis 05

“‘See title 01b’ recreates or re-imagines the *right* side of the parallel ‘see title o1a’. We’re dealing with half the space of the first, or Lapara across the tracks from the actual town again.  We are getting more information about this planned escape, basically real in the present, or at the completion of the last novel. The pink elephant returns, but as a different image. (The) Black Lodge reappears but with different characters within — those from the another tv show called ‘Gravity Falls’ that has factored in elsewhere (in my writing). See, for example, The Bill. Or starting with the 3rd diary. Anyway, (the characters) are there and for a reason. Also the Man from Another Place’s face has been exposed for what it really is. And we can say here his face was covered in ‘see title 01a’ with another image from ‘Gravity Falls’: that of main male protagonist Dipper Pines. And Dipper’s twin sister takes the place of Windom Earle in the lower right corner. She stares perhaps longingly at the cute, pink elephant. She wants one!”

“Hucka Doobie, the dwarf character seems to be saying something else in the present collage. Not “It is Happening Again,” but perhaps a resolution, or an answer. I think this is the sky island (next to Morrison) again. Laura Palmer in the sky has moved closer to the scene. This is escape through Morrison.”

“Could be, could be.”

[delete 5 exchanges]

“Are we then ready to move on, Hucka Doobie?”

“Yes.”
