“Hucka D., this collage just gets deeper and deeper potentially. First off, the middle of the collage seems to create an animation, since I can’t decide whether to ultimately keep the Green Man and Painting Woman w/ easel within. That’s the first odd thing. But then today, this morning, decided that this middle can be overlapped with the 4 Sticks phenomenon of Maryland/Pennsylvania. If so, the collage acts as a window into GNIRPS, um, a portal. Let me insert the little overlap I came up with. The original discussion of the 4 Sticks MD/PA material is here.
Then I did some editing, reduced the overall picture to 75 percent, and overlapped it in the most logical way I could find with “Rock, His Story.”
Then I recreated the 4 Sticks in a clean picture.
A clue for doing this, or a cue I suppose, was that Russell, the child in Up, uses Kevin as stilts in the middle portion of the collage. It was a small, logical jump to incorporating Stiltz, Pennsylvania/Maryland, since I’d already assoc. that town with stilts — up and down sticks as it were. But the cool thing is that you can align the central line, with the upper part at *Sticks* (Pennsylvania), with the central stick of the collage, the one Rock emphasizes by climbing up it, and also, now, acts as a symbol of the Green Lego Man’s spinal chord, it appears. Roller at the bottom then also becomes a stick, but a large one, more commonly called a log, which, because of its breadth, can often *roll*. Roller = green lined log at the bottom of “Rock, His Story”. Hucka D.? Hmm, maybe not awake yet. Anyhoot, then Lineboro is to the left to complete the 4 compass directions. As Kevin is equated with Boss Moss, since both donate one eye to a composite being, then the angular, similarly sized Freakie peaking out from behind the tree to the left would represents his double and opposite, as we’ve already spoken about before. This is Lineboro.
If we simply reverse the collage [and toggle back and forth], more interesting things happen.
The pivot point of the 4 Sticks insert becomes not the center of the lines, but Sticks, Pennsylvania at the top. It waggles around this stable point. The 4 Sticks dude revolving around himself is overlapped with the actual 4 Sticks region of Whitehead X-ing to the right in the original. Dorothy finds an obvious double in Wythe’s Christina, Baker b. coming out of the rocketship overlaps Baker Bloch on the bottle — direct hit there.
Hucka D. (now studying this information as well):
The colorful Kevin bird seems to double for the likewise colorful Contraption behind it. I think it’s a comment on the latter — former to latter. Kevin is a unique, exotic bird. The world at large does not even believe such a bird exists. Yet Charles Muntz has devoted his life to prove otherwise, in his vanity. He wishes to capture Kevin to show the world that he’s not a fraud. Kevin is the Contraption. (pause) Kevin is freaky like Boss Moss, then. 2 Freaks; a composite one freak, each donating an eye. Eye eye. Boss Moss freed from his box existence represents Kevin in the wild, his home, and not captive like Muntz would desire. He’s a Tall Cool One, so another Lead Zeppelin, Robert Plant Variant reference. Nice. Like Big Log, which will come later[ in a later carrcass, Hucka D. probably means here]. Boxed Boss Moss (and by assoc., a captive Kevin) stands for slavery, like in the South below the Mason-Dixon Line in the antebellum times. Opposite of freedom.
“[Elton John’s] Philadelphia Freedom, Hucka D., must represent freedom of the African-American peoples. *This* collage will be in GNIRPS.”
Has to be[ now].
Rock climbing up the stick is like slaves climbing north to freedom. A struggle, sometime Herculean, but ultimately worth it. Climb up!
Rock straddles the line. Elton John in Philadelphia Freedom mode assists. Can I be of assistance today?
4 Sticks dude somehow manipulating the colorful contraption beside Elton probably represents Muntz again and entrapment/slavery. 4 Sticks plays in Carrcass-3 as Kevin escapes Muntz and his dogs, lead by a Black Dog.
