“Still in Nanon Sweet Morning light in the room in the room, box springs are broken next to hand springs. Colorado.

“The place: BIONaz Gulch (sim) next to Snowmass near Woody Creek. Colorado. Woody Woodmanson loves Snow — comes from that land and sometimes hung out with fellow native Snowmanster and then seems, later on, to himself animate a snowman after moving back to Collagesity with the rest of the Baker family in photo-novel 04.”

“Let me guess (for the 3rd): Colorado.”



“We could go with several but let’s use Jack Torrance leaning against a Colorado map in Kubrick’s “The Shining” while disabling a ham radio, head appearing to touch a location called Cannibal or Canibal Plateau.

“Kubrick did this to indicate Jack is actually a wannabe cannibal in the film, as foreshadowed by him talking about the Donner Party LINK in the scene where he, with his family, approach the evacuating Overlook Hotel to take over as winter caretaker.”

“Mountain air,” says Wheeler to this. “I’m soo sleepy (!).” She mimics Wendy’s yawn in the film again just before Jack’s Donner Party exposition.

And so we return.

It was the first meeting of their TILE discussion group, yet without a name. Mr. Z, with continentally constituted backpack per usual, then his prettier brother-cousin also named Mr. Z. Let’s call him Zimmy. And then, thirdly but not lastly, as people like to say, a scowling, non-sister cousin called — let’s go with Olive Oylslick, not to be confused with Owley Oilstick over in Constitution who works a bread stand. No relation atall between them except a common 5th grade kindergarten teacher named Ed. Or was it Ralph. Anyway, to the meeting…

The lights had to be dimmed because TILE was not an officially recognized religion or philosophy or even game in this particular part of The City. One of the reasons the discussion group was formed was to help change all that, bring TILE out in the open.

“Minute taker anyone?” Mr. Z offered to start the proceedings. Owley, I mean, Olive raised her hand. She knew she had the only handwriting anyone could decipher amongst their group. Her favorite push pencil magically appeared in it. She had that power; another advantage. A writing pad popped into existence in the other one. She glared in the direction of the Z’s, waiting for them to open their big fat mouths again and produce things to write about. She was patient, but not of a mental kind. Not any more. She manifested two pills in her mouth and swallowed, one red and one blue. That way her size stayed the same.

With this, Phyllis also manifested on the far end of the room beside the purple stripes of the TILE flag they had collaged together just last night: the last member, the one Olive forgot she even invited to the group. Met her at a chilly Denver airport on a snowy April day in July. Chile Colorado. And she had Ralph or Ed for a 5th grade kindergarten teacher too. Anyhoot, she’s here — and I suppose this is the real Owley. So Phyllis, not Owley, complete with bread and a little milk to wash it down with to show she cares.

“Some of these colors will have to be removed,” she declares while looking sideways, making Olive begin to scribble.


40 minutes later, she had the minutes to the meeting. Trouble is, her cousins, the Z’s, hadn’t even said a thing while watching her slash away at the notepad with the push pencil, clicking it every couple of minutes to produce new graphite as the old wore away. She just dictated what Phyllis was telling her. No one else saw or heard Phyllis. No one else knew she existed. It was all in the pills. But they *had* their manifesto. Olive looked up, realized what was going on. She’d been in a trance for quite a while. She looked at her cousins, Zimmy and the other one who only goes by Mister. “You can go home now,” she gruffly declares. “I’ll email you the typed results tonight.”

They were on another circular island quite larger in size, although not far away. The associated club was called D’Vine, resonating with both Devine and Vineland in Colorado, especially since the name is a play on Eden’s fruit vine with the cursed apple and all. I knew because the neighboring sim was Danshire (with the much smaller, circular island we’ll get to soon) that synchronicity was strong here. This is the spot — a direct extension of Danshire — to continue our story…

I called in Wheeler to reprise her role of Heidi Hunt Ives from Gaeta V in novel 7. I knew she’d be up for it. Also remember that Tom Casey beside her is a method actor, going deep into the role of Casey One Hole he’ll always be identified with.

“Are all my fingers here?” she started, worried about the doubled manifestation. Two alts in one location sometimes spells trouble. But then she counted to 10 and moved on, an old practice. She looked over at Tom Casey, noted the coal black eyes staring into her. Good! It’s a role of a lifetime, she feels. To work with the great director Eraserhead Man on a new project, to go into the Red Room again and face a faceless man who has information he *wants*, not needs, and then, when not getting it once more, finishes the deed he should have accomplished long ago on a continent now far far away. Or at least an ocean away. Well, only a strait away to be honest. Gaeta V I’m talking about here, the faceless continent that we probably won’t be returning too much for more action and adventure in these here Collagesity photo-novels. Neighboring Corsica continent to the west seems to be a different story. Much different as it’s turning out. The D’Vine island mirroring the earlier Danshire island just next door is witness to this. Synchronicity! How I need that energy. Back to the actors…

“Tom — Casey, I mean. Can I call you Casey?”

Tom/Casey considered what Casey would say. How deep was he? Not quite enough to answer correctly. But that was good! In a way. “Yes,” he said.

Heidi Hunt Ives noticed the slip and called it out. “But I think you *wouldn’t*, Casey *One Hole*. Do you still remember how you got that name?”

“Of course,” he replied, but didn’t go into specifics. Casey One Hole would not have gone into specifics. He was going deeper again.

“Nice.” HHI became pleased again. “So tell me about the Yankton prison, then, formerly a college as I understand or remember it now. Why do you need schematics?” This was different. Casey One Hole enjoys talking about the prison. It is what the character is centered around. It’s like this island to his story.

He managed to glance over at the center (table), wishing he was there instead of here.

And then there he was. Heidi Hunt Ives, of course, joined him. Let’s listen in.

(to be continued?)

“So here we are. But it’s Hidden Village, with the two l’s like the others. And also: Hilltop Road.

“Interesting. Let’s see how far down this road we can go.”


“Proper. The green journey ends here, where (inferior) red takes over (once more). See the mushroom cloud? Literally. This is what happens at the end of a world.”

Bigfoot 01

100 Foot Swamp:



100 Foot Swamp has been renamed Bigfoot Swamp, a natural transition (it has a “big” feet of length). The projected town or “toy happening” around it becomes Bigfoot then, most likely, with a center near the northern part of the marsh, where a feeder stream enters it via an uphill pipe.

The only US population place named Bigfoot presently is in Frio County, Texas. The general area of this village has already been seen in a map displayed on this blog from May 2014 called “Strange 01″…

There I discuss the conjunction of two towns in Medina County to the immediate north of Frio, or Noonan and Devine. Glenn Strange plays the bartendeer Sam Noonan in the long running western seris Gunsmoke featuring James Arness and sheriff Matt Dillon, an icon for our time. The town Noonan in Texas is one of only 2 in our US of A, the other being in Divide County ND and near a *Strange* Siding. Noonan and Strange conjoined again. Near Noonan Texas is a city called Devine. There are only two pop. places of that name as well, with the other being in Colorado near a Vineland, and itself having a variant name of Vineland according to the GNIS database.

Notice several things here in addition to the stuff I outline in the “Strange 01” post: Divide (County, ND) is almost an anagram of Devine. I now work with a guy named Devine, who is sort of my boss as I perceive him. He cryptically emailed me several times on the weekend I discovered the Bigfoot Swamp. Now I find the only US Bigfoot conjoined with the only incorporated US Devine, and the only one of any significance. Bigfoot Swamp, a natural area bordering the Blue Mountain Urban Landscape and what could be considered a direct extension of it (that’s how I view it anyway), can stand for the event *furthest* away from this Urban Landscape in the Blue Mountain area, or the encounter with a Bigfoot like creature in the furthest recesses of Frank and Herman Park the winter of 2012/2013. This is an encounter with a completely *alien* culture, seemingly, and as far away from humanity as you can get. It is non-human. It creates not stuff we humans consider normal, like roads and houses and malls and hospitals and HugeMarts. So the near Bigfoot (Alpha) overlaps the far Bigfoot (Omega), and perhaps in ways I cannot understand yet (involving Devine?).

On the below map we see the close conjunction of Noonan, Devine and Bigfoot in Texas, with the word Devine strangely absent on the map despite being a town of significant size. Represents the soon absence of the other Devine? Maybe. If so, what name will take its place? Is that written out in maps as well?

Norwegian Wood 03

Another Frank and Herman Einstein post mentioning a different Norwegian, this time a ridge in Idaho.

Notice the word Wegian is distilled from Norwegian in this post. Now, removing Wegian from Norwegian Wood gives us Norwood, which is the actual name of the neighborhood as I’ll tell you now. Switch from fantasy back to reality, then. Norwegian Wood mentioned at the bottom of that December 2012 post as well.

But Hucka D. is emphasizing that we must continue to *mystify* Ashville and its neighborhoods, instead of *de*mystifying. So we have Norwegian Wood, Cherry Avenue, Lime Street, and Linden Creek instead of their actual names. Well, as far as I can tell Linden Creek doesn’t actually have name, so this is a coined word for an unnamed stream in reality. And now I also have a name for the stream that it joins: Read Creek. And Earl Weaver Park may have been originally called Read Creek Park or just Read Park. The fairies or toy avatars or elves or whatever inhabits the Linden Creek area in mystified reality have preserved a bit of this original park across the road from the present park, but still on Read Creek.

I don’t think I’ve mentioned that in Earl Weaver Park we find the actual conjunction of Linden and Read streams. I viewed the conjunction in person several weeks back, and found the two streams almost equal in size at that place. Nevertheless, the Linden name is absorbed into the Read name at that juncture, terminating the former. You cannot see the stream confluence in Street View, and I didn’t take a picture of it while there. I’ll rectify that soon enough.

Bit of Read Park preserved by the Linden aliens.

Across the road: what appears to be one of the aliens resting atop a car, Linden Creek just behind.

Nearby bamboo grove. We know the wee people love river cane!

In Read Park, when it is restored to its original name, we will find a monument to TILE starting with “I”.



Hucka D.:

We know Norway is North, referring to Nordic aliens, seen as superior in most eyes to the Southern ones, sometimes called Greys or Reptilians. This is oversimplification pure and simple. The Nordics are more *us* — or you I should say, baker b. The Reptilians are more *them*. Can you trust Greys? Can you trust anyone? Is a human being from the South during Civil War times necessarily evil because he doesn’t understand the human tragedy of slavery? Do they have a Hart?


Orchard City: A(B)C(D)E. READ just below. One of two other US Read’s above Murdock in Utah.

Orchard City, the second largest municipality in Delta County, is home to 3,100 residents and is the largest municipality in terms of square miles in Delta County.

Despite its size, Orchard City is primarily recognized by the names of three smaller and older areas within its boundaries: Austin, Eckert and Cory.

They all had separate beginnings, but somehow through a unique course of events came together. The following is a condensed history of how Orchard City came to be a town of three communities.

Three Communities Grow

The names Austin, Eckert and Cory have existed since the turn of the century. In the 1900’s, the entire area, including Cedaredge to the north, was solid with orchards of peaches, apricots, cherries, and apples. The area was gorgeous.

Cherry Avenue is a Magnet?

Apricot-Bone is probably also the name of a mystified Ashville neighborhood.

It’s definitely a fruit bowl situation.

Strange 01,_North_Dakota

Noonan was founded in 1907 and named after a family that had business, farm, and coal interests in the area. It was once known as “The White City” because of an ordinance requiring all buildings to be painted white.[6]


Glenn Strange (August 16, 1899 – September 20, 1973) was an American actor who mostly appeared in Western films. He is best remembered for playing Frankenstein’s monster in three Universal films during the 1940s and for his role as Sam Noonan, the popular bartender on CBS’s Gunsmoke television series. Strange was of Irish and Cherokee descent and was a cousin of the Western film star and narrator Rex Allen.


Life and career

Strange was born near Alamogordo in tiny Weed in Otero County, northeast of El Paso, Texas, some thirteen years prior to New Mexico gaining statehood. He was born as George Glenn Strange, the fourth child of William Russell Strange and the former Sarah Eliza Byrd. He was an eighth generation grandson of Pocahontas and John Rolfe of Jamestown, Virginia.

Strange grew up in tiny Cross Cut (formerly known as Cross Out) in Brown County (county seat: Brownwood), some fifty miles east of Abilene in West Texas.

Strange played the Monster a third time in Abbott and Costello Meet Frankenstein (1948), with Chaney, Jr. and Bela Lugosi.

Noonan near Devine in Medina County, Texas. The only other US Devine, in Colorado, is just below Vineland, and Devine itself is listed with a lone variant name of Vineland. My thinking in respect to WH X-ing: Devine is a central place in The Crossing’s Vineland. Below Vineland is Weed — that was already predetermined. Now I know that our Strang or Strange is from Weed as well through Glenn Strange from Weed, NM, famous for his portrayals of Frankenstein’s monster and also the bartender Noonan from Gunsmoke.

Only other *Noonan* beside the one in Texas is in Divide Co., ND near a *Strange* Siding. How odd; how strange if I may be allowed.

Jacks sabotages the ham radio located in Ullman’s Office, completely blocking the hotel from the outside world.



While he’s prizing off the top, his head grazes a portion of the Colorado map on the wall. At first I thought there was an *extra county* Kubrick fabricated for the map that Jack’s head indicated, the 65th of the state beyond the actual real and present 64. But, if so, it doesn’t appear on the blu-ray version (Did I say here we purchased a blu-ray player for the first time? And I have The Shining on blu-ray!), so I’m just going to assume it’s a trick of the eyes. But this doesn’t discount that Jack’s head rests *right above* a plateau in northern Hinsdale County called *Canibal or Cannibal*. There’s a reason for this, I quickly found out, and it has to do with a man named Alferd Packer, famous in Colorado parts, and one of the most noted of all cannibals. Never mind that I hadn’t heard of him, and you probably haven’t either. His story from wikipedia…



Old Hinsdale County map where I first came across “Canibal Plateau”, above the county seat of Lake City.


Detail of the plateau. I was also curious to note the presence of both a Devil’s Creek and a Fourth of July Creek flowing near its northern side here. The final photo of The Shining supposedly comes from a 1921 Fourth of July celebration, where Jack is obviously posed as the tarot’s Baphomet, better known as *The Devil*. There’s also a Devil’s Lake, Devil’s Canyon and Inferno Creek nearby to reinforce the association. Again: quite bizarre seeming.


Strongest evidence that Kubrick wanted to highlight Alferd Packer’s story here? It just so happens that Jack and his family discuss another famous cannibal story as they wind their way through the mountains toward the hotel on closing day. I’ll just insert the related dialog below. It concerns the Donner Party.

Here’s a thought: did Kubrick slyly indicate in all this that Jack not only wished to kill his family at the end but to *consume them*? I believe this is a strong possibility, given the evidence at hand.

So let’s return to shot 98 once more — touched upon in a blog post just before this one for something totally unrelated seeming — and pick up right after Wendy yawns…


JACK: Yes?

DANNY: I’m hungry.

JACK (irritated): Well, you should have eaten your breakfast.

But isn’t this a scene played out in countless cars on countless trips in countless families, so there’s no reason for the audience to count this against Jack. Still, another question mark as to his character is tabulated.

WENDY: We’ll get you something as soon as we get to the hotel.

DANNY: Okay, mom.

Speaking of getting something to eat…

WENDY: Hey, wasn’t it around here where the Donner party got snowbound?

And we remember Jack telling Ullman of her interest in horror stories.

JACK: I think that was farther west in the Sierras.

DANNY: What was the Donner Party?

JACK: They were a party of settlers in covered wagon times. They got snow bound one winter in the mountains and they had to resort to cannibalism in order to stay alive.

DANNY: You mean they ate each other up?

JACK: They had to in order to survive.

Wendy interrupts, reproving.

WENDY: Jack…

And of course we see it as an ill foreboding.

DANNY: Don’t worry, mom. I know all about cannibalism, I saw it on TV.

Raising his eyebrows, Jack contemptuously mocks.

JACK: See, it’s okay, he saw it on the television.
