The Bogota series, The Arab ponders here, studying the collage section of the blog. Half series, half not, the complexity of the photo-novels weighing in again. Since Boos, collages have depended on its now enormous (ponderous?) storyline. That was 2015. This is 2022. A long time for collages to serve another master and not themselves as completed, self contained art works, or at least self contained art series. Bogota changed all that. Bogota never had its own gallery, although I tried to make a unified sense of the whole. Didn’t work, except, a bit, for inclusive series Bogota Proper, as I call it, and, more recently — in the last year and a 1/2 or so — Picturetown, another Canadian based series like Boos before it, notably enough. But even Picturetown was different: separate it from the attached photo-novel, 24 in a series of, presently, 32, and the meaning is severely diluted, maybe irreparably damaged. Yet I still do create individual collages here and there in the continuing process. This, I assume, will continue…

Looking back on it, audio-visual synchronicities, another kind of collage, go hand in hand with the 2d, more “regular” ones. What one might call the first true movie collage of the bunch, “Billfork” back in 2004, was created in the same year as the 1st 2d collage series in Greenup. Then, on the other side, Boos was created about the same time as the last audio-visual collages I made in 2015-2016.

Just moving down the blog headers to Reality — Reality, pheh, what a concept! — I’ve hiked almost every day since I retired March 1. I’ve included some RL photos in the blog recently, but I want to do more of that. It’s all going to a place where I concoct one of those woodsy art happenings again, like with Bigfoot-Chesterton also from 2015-2016, another of those seeming last-of-its-kind phenomenon. Truth is, I think that audio-visual synching will return, albeit in a very different and unexpected form. Collage series will continue, perhaps separating out from virtual reality again and relying more on themselves alone for meaning. Writing is very important, but art also will go on.

And I’ll probably try my hand at an actual novel sometime, sans pictures. The setting may very well be Oz.

Bigfoot Chesterton revisited

For instance, maybe this moss covered rock is suppose to be next to the blue-yellow-green-*orange* Mmmmmm’s and also next to the church. The monkeys (Ding and Dong) know. One perches on top of the rock, the other on the roof of the chapel. The Veer is the same in each, although the new Herman Park location for the model rr track contains 11 pieces instead of Chesterton’s 12. This is The River of the game Carcassonne that all is built around. The Earth is built around The River, usually identified as The Amazon because of its size but, really, any large world river would do. Mississippi is also commonly used because of its inherent mightiness.

But we must get back to characters and away from just dry, didactic text. Nice to know that Hucka Doobie and Baker Bloch are getting along better now. Orange helps. The search is over.

“It really was quite simple, Hucka Doobie. I inserted the 5th piece — orange — connecting red and yellow together, The Cones were revealed again beyond the Victory Restaurant, Lu Ellen Hutchinson or Hutchison’s red cap disappeared behind it (another red to orange switch), and much more is at stake (!).”

“Much more ahead, yeah.” Hucka Doobie had to admit to herself that she was pretty proud of Baker boy here. Now he just had to figure out where the real Bigfoot was. Was it in Herman Park in that new, top secret spot Carrcassonnee recently dreamed about? Or is it still next to the Blue Mtn. Urban Landscape in the “old” Bigfoot, or more specifically the Bigfoot section called Chesterton.

Tigers are a link. She smiles with this. Baker boy is good. Good boy.

Bigfoot Art Happening revisited/recontextualized

https://bakerbloch.com/reality/2015-2016/part-03/

Unholey Book (Red).

Catcher catching Ball below it (Greenilocks marble) during the meat of the event. Conclusion: It is Arkansas.

Later: Unholey Cave…

… and our Bigfoot protagonist Taum Sauk and his wife Mina bedding down within for the dark times ahead.

End of “Bigfoot Art Happening 2015”.

—–

Much much *much* later (2020): He has miraculously emerged in Our Second Lyfe! On a circular island making up a D’Vine Club, with metal *golf* club also in hand and rope similarly wrapped around left forearm to remember his existence in Bigfoot by (formerly named Ironton, Iron, Middle Game, etc.).

And then the also circular but considerably smaller island at the center of the neighboring sim of Danshire he quickly “moved” to, complete with Small Kowloon House. Briefly, that is — was he killed there along with the derezzing of the shack by neighborhood watch fanatic Red Pepper? Fellow former Danshire resident Phyllis Phox might know. If she weren’t combined with anti-self June Bug in the current novel. Current.

Whether dead or alive or something else altogether, we know he still exists in the Twin Peaks Laboratory’s Red Room — a waiting receptacle for both the Black and White Lodges — as confirmed later by Marion Harding and crime pal Philip Strevor. But where is his wife Mina now? (“Where’s Mina? Where’s Mina?”)


“Tell me where she is?”

Is this what Marion is really asking here? Too bad about Phyllis.

Thoughts

Just some loose thoughts this morning. And: Happy Easter!

I dearly wanted to get back to Art Oluja’s LEA11 sim last night to create another post on her beautiful and awe inspiring “Glass Jars” installation there. But my sleeping patterns have been disrupted by a recent bout with a viral infection and I snoozed through the night again, not waking up until 7:30am. I now compose most of my blog posts during a period of, usually, about 2am through 5am or so, and this was especially true when working my way through the last Collagesity novel this winter (“Collagesity 2016-2017 Winter”). Couple the virus with my mother’s recent water disaster at her house that I had to deal with just before, and there’s almost all of April “blown” on RL situations. Not much real creative work achieved yet in this month. But that’s okay — you deal with the cards you’ve played. 🙂

I really desire to go back to (RL) Bigfoot soon, perhaps today. Problems in that direction: the land comprised of the Plateau of Raw Art has been *sold*, and to a local university who plans to use it for a recreational complex. Now Bigfoot swamp may not *disappear* during the transition, but let’s say it’s been reinforced that the clock is ticking on this “too close to civilization” bit o’ property. The 2 Bigfoot toy-junk events may turn out to be unique.

And the co-worker I’m perhaps closest to has suddenly resigned (!). He and Bigfoot are linked in peculiar ways. Goodbye my friend, if our paths somehow do not cross again. Best of luck with future creative and educational endeavors. You will be missed.

State of Things

Blue Mtn. Urban Landscape/Bigfoot (etc.) will certainly come into play very soon, perhaps this Sunday. Poison Ivy will be out in the High Country maybe by mid to late April. So little time to lose in major exploring until then. I’ve been to Whitehead Crossing quite a number of times during the warm winter and early spring. I’ll make comments on some pics I made asap. New “path” discovered which leads to interesting rock group on upper edge of Woods of Howl (or is it Woods of Hal?). Spotted girl hiking there about month and a half back. Unusual to encounter someone in the open woods and I asked her if she knew where she was, which she responded to in the affirmative. An orange dog was with her. Mossman research continues… that’s all changing as far as past mythology goes. I do not plan — I don’t think — to create a toy happening at Whitehead Crossing, despite the surface attraction. Instead I’ll be observing and occasionally taking pictures there. Bigfoot will probably remain the focus in that area. My speculation is that Bigfoot was specifically created for me by Others just for this purpose. The Bigfoot Swamp is unusually placed.

My educated guess is that I’ll procure future “toys/junk” either from flea markets or a proximate Goodwill store (right at the entrance to Bigfoot!). There is still a chance I may give up Collagesity in Minoa and rebuild in the fall. I must keep developing real life art in tandem with Second Life related art and fiction. But the Collagesity novels have been a hoot to create (!). I now call them Collagesity I II and III sometimes, but the actual names, again, are: “Collagesity 2015-2016 Winter” (C1516W), “Collagesity 2016 Later” (C16L), and “Collagesity 2016-2017 Winter” (C1617W). So the new one may be called “Collagesity 2017 Later” if it follows the pattern. I don’t plan to begin this next projected installation in the series until the early summer at the very least but who knows. Right now I’m in an in-between period, which could be a prelude for the new novel.

My gradual psychic removal from the Snowlands continues after heavy involvement in it at the end of C1617W. I will not renew my rental in its western part for another month (rented a 2048 parcel right after the completion of C1617W in early March). All my “illegal” builds, such as at Wheeler’s “Way Station”, or beside Woody’s A-frame, have been deleted in the meantime. A possibility exists to rent in Ohno on eastern side of Snowlands, but we’ll see. It will be small, probably a 512, if so.

What will Collagesity 2017 Later look like? What of the new installation of Bigfoot/Chesterton toy-junk-marble happenings? Questions that of course really can’t be answered right now. But let’s speculate anyhoot…

Bigfoot-Chesterton: the area between them, called Vincente for now LINK, is a possibility for a third perhaps smaller and more condensed (and story laden?) happening. Through it we may better piece together what the other two are about.

In Collagesity 2017 Later, we may have the return to power of Carrcassonnee, maybe in tandem with (an also transformed) Wheeler. Baker Bloch and Baker Blinker remain the powers behind the scene, however, more Bloch but also Blinker as repository of many past memories and experiences now. Bracket Jupiter may return in diff. form. I’m not sure Old Mabel and Urch/Buurb will come back. Karoz obviously will return, and perhaps will become a central character once more (he was kind of on backburner in C1617W). That’s all for now.

Notes

Obviously lots of fictional writing going on in the blog recently — well, almost the past 7 months solid basically. I anticipate this changing next month, when a return to woodsy type posts will occur. This winter I’ve also been able to create at least the virtual part of the blog archives, found under the Virtual heading here:

https://bakerbloch.com/virtual/

This involved quite a lot of work. Its *9 years* worth of posts now. The plan is to add to this archive each month.

The fiction I’ve been working on starting in Dec and esp Jan is a separate work from Collagesity fiction that came before. Basically it seems to be manifesting as a *3rd* work to complement “Collagesity 2015-2016 Winter” (Dec-Mar) and “Collagesity 2016 Later” (Aug-Nov). So a kind of trilogy. Also, esp. since it is being created at essentially the same time frame during the calendar year, this 3rd work seems to act as a type of twin to “Collagesity 2015-2016 Winter”. The latter began in mid-Dec and ended in early March. The title of the new work logically becomes “Collagesity 2016-2017 Winter.”

I could go much further into an analysis of the structures. “Collagesity 2016-2017 Winter” appears to be evolving into 6 or 7 separate parts. I’m in the middle of creating part 5 right now. It’s a strange process, because I can’t seem to anticipate where I’m heading — can’t plan the whole thing out. As “C1516W” ended up on the moon, and its successor “C16L” terminated in a visit to Mars, so the new work could wind down with some kind of et visit (Muff-Bermingham?). Anyway just to drop a note on that. You can follow the progression of the parts here:

https://bakerbloch.com/virtual/collagesity-2016-2017-winter/

The Dec posts (Parts 001 and 002) act as an introduction to “C1617W”, or, in another way, a direct bridge between “C16L” and “C1617W”. Each subsequent part of “C1617W” is composed of around 16 to 18 or 19 blog posts, starting with “Book Muncher?” from the beginning of Jan.

The weather’s been so warm this winter that I’ve been able to get outdoors and hike quite a lot. Frank Park’s Whitehead Crossing has been the most popular destination by far. I already have a queue of photos to share on this blog. WH Xing mythology will most likely develop more this spring, esp after Daylight Savings Time kicks in March 12th. I anticipate creating a Reality archives to complement the Virtual archives very soon. Whitehead Crossing and other Frank and Herman Park destination will feature large within.

And I haven’t forgotten about the Bigfoot location either.

Thanks for reading!

Bigfoot Turbulence!

Some *final* shots of the supposed “permanent” version of Chesterton before I had to move my toys out. I’ve been invaded!

But before I get to all that, some pics from the Blue Mountain Urban Landscape I’ve been more attracted to lately. And good thing!

Back to Bigfoot: Yes, that’s the construction barrels I call The Tigers on Third Road of Bigfoot. But the long piece of bleacher beside them coming from the Plateau of Raw Art is *not* my projected newest aspect of Chesterton. Instead someone else has drug it down here, and also made a kind of rough path all along The Bramble, cutting straight through the edge of Chesterton and down through all four roads. The demons! I suspect either skateboarders taking a break from their regular hobby, or else other kids who visit The Plateau on occasion for perhaps drinking or smoking or even sex purposes.

As I’m writing this text, I found out about this invasion from the outside around 3 weeks ago now. Upon visiting a couple days back, I was very happy to witness no further development coming from this — no more harsh intrusions into the general Bigfoot area. The swamp remains a destination for me. But I had to take the toys up at Chesterton for safe keeping. I’m amazed whoever masterminded this invasion didn’t disturb any of ’em, apparently. Or perhaps they didn’t see them in cutting through the eastern edge of Chesterton? I can’t imagine how, but perhaps it’s possible. Maybe the appearance of toys at this remote spot was too much for their tiny little intruding brains to handle. Or maybe they thought it was aliens who placed them there and got the heck outta Dodge. This could be a possibility if drugs were involved, but probably not as well. At any rate, I didn’t plan to do anything with this space for the rest of the summer and fall, so perhaps by next year all will be grown up again and sealed, like it was before. But in truth I’ll never feel totally safe at Chesterton like I did. And that’s an honest shame.
