here and there

“So you’ve decided to play the role of Clare Nova, Wheeler. Third Nova sister.”

“Third *found*,” she said. She takes another sip of her Cabernet Sauvignon wine. “Somewhere in this store is the appropriate avatar. A step up from (Summerhill) and (Golden Bee-ing), true. Something with a little more meat and flesh. Maybe the ancient alien.”

“Study up more on the real Clare Nova,” Baker Bloch suggested. “Find out additional stuff about her land and its relationship with The Diagonal. We’ve already discovered that obelisk tucked in the southwest corner of Hooktip right on the line…

… and then an accompanying leaf screen in *Leaf*roller to the immediate south.

Synchy stuff still going on.”

“And the multiple rose pictures The Musician found in Sister galleries,” reinforced Wheeler. “In his dreams.” She turned toward her Musician, now fully awake and tinkling the ivories of a nearby piano. The tune for the day: David Bowie’s “Alladin Sane.” Third take was the charm.

“Where’s Baker Blinker?” Wheeler suddenly asked.

“You know where they are,” Baker Bloch responded.

“Oh yeah. Chilbo.”

—–

“Where’s Wheeler?” Karoz suddenly asked.

“You know where they are,” Baker Blinker responded.

“Oh… yeah.”

College update 02

Well, Karoz brainstormed for hours while Patty guarded the door to House Orange. “They’re going to have to know sooner than later what this college is all about,” she urges. “They’re buying books and food and drink and taking train rides, but they don’t understand the point.” Karoz bursts through the phantom, orange door. “Eureka, we’ll go Potter on them. We’ll invent our own sport like Quidditch. And we’ll divide the college itself into four sub-colleges and have them play *each other*. Brilliant — yeah?” He knew they couldn’t just play Quidditch itself — had to be something new. Something related to TILE, he then realized in another moment of inspiration. “Red, green, yellow, blue, like the Fighting Marbles. Marbles Fall… Marble Falls. Dogpatch. Billy Ray Cyrus.” He was word associating. Patty Pepper Mint just stood there, arms folded. “Curriculum?!” she thought so loudly that he actually heard it. But Karoz had backed into the truth. The college had to be based on TILE and a related game or games. Pupils had to “get marbled”.

That better be it for tonight!

—–

One more thing. Story Room wrote a quick reply to this post, saying that it’s obvious they should head 3 of the 4 sub-colleges, and Karoz the 4th. It was all heading in this direction all along. Red, blue, yellow. They even suggested some names for the 4 subs: Moss, Rope, Tongue, and Chalk. “I’ll take Rope,” Steptoe said. “Tongue for me,” the talkative Oskar Robert’s Son offered. “Left with Chalk, I suppose,” the shy Chuck or Charlie chipped in. “And of course you’re Moss,” they said in basic unison to Karoz. Karoz woke up.

Falmouth College update.

College president elect Karoz Blogger was disappointed to learn that there is a real life Falmouth College of sorts in Cornwall County, England, and an arts college at that. He’ll make a final decision on the name soon, he promises. But it has to be Falmouth College still, doesn’t it? Maybe he could just call it Fal Mouth College. Still like the sports nickname of the Cussers. But who will they play? Well, they can play Parktown, they can play Chilbo. Michael Bolton is the new head coach over there, I’ve heard. He ordered new playbooks from a local company but they sent leather bound copies of Phil Donahue transcripts from the 1990’s instead. No, wait, Billy Ray Cyrus is the new Chilbo coach; Michael is the assistant coach. Well, if Karoz wants to participate in this football season he better hurry up and start the college and get his team together. Another possible opponent is the Billville No Neckers.

But what about the curriculum development? What will his college *teach* the young, virtual kids of today’s generation? “Moss” is all he has now. Football and Moss. “Com’on,” urges Patty Pepper Mint from beyond the door. Because Karoz has locked himself into his small office in House Orange to plan for the future. “I can’t think with all the trains going by and kids ordering their food and drinks and books,” he complains. Patty Pepper Mint comes from a large family of complainers over in the green Nari hills. Billy Ray Cyrus is her 1st Cousin. Some say they were even married at one time and had several children. She doesn’t like to talk about those days, but, on the other hand, Patty is obviously excited about the prospect of playing Chilbo. Karoz reinforces that she check in on him each and every hour, 24 hours a day. Home life and playing with cousins can wait, he jokes. She doesn’t laugh. Karoz knows the secret. Michael Bolton is not [just] another 1st cousin but the husband of Billy Ray. Michael Bolton stole his heart away from her. She’s *jealous*. Spongebob Squarepants and husband Patrick Star plan to attend all the Fal Mouth College home games (*there* — made a decision on the name!).

Another opponent: Rooster Springs Backwoods Institute (where you’re in the middle, which unfortunately is in the way).

Karoz needs to identify a league. He contacts B.R. Cyrus. Michael Bolton puts down a Donahue script and answers the phone. They identify together some common opponents. “Parktown, yeah,” Bolton spouts. “I hate Parktown and their sewers and dirigibles, so hoiti toitti. They’re all addicted to sex and gambling over there. Do they have a high school?” Karoz was shocked. He didn’t realize Chilbo was a *high school* team. There was no college in Chilbo, nor in Parktown. Yes, he found out Parktown has a high school. And Nari, for that matter: the old Crow’s Foot building serves as a place for 6 to 8 young adults to gather together each fall and spring for learning lessons. Patty Pepper Mint, of course, knows all of them. They’re immediate family each and every one. “Well, we cannot have a football team without other colleges to play. Can we play high schools?” “Up to you,” Patty returns. “There’s *got* to be other colleges in the area. How about the Sheldonopolis Fighting Sheldons?” “Funny,” Patty answers. “But, yes, we can play them.” “Maybe I should just scrap the football idea this year and focus on the curriculum and getting the school started.” Patty said the obvious. “You think?”

Roaming 01

This night Baker Bloch decides to roam the neighborhood instead of working on Collagesity.

Baker heads south through the western part of Noru from his town. As he passes into the Mujigae sim, he turns and shoots this picture of a sign at the sim crossing. It was a familiar one, since he use to own a bunch of Noru land directly behind it in 2010: the now legendary (to him) Norum Woods, with the Blue Feather Gallery intially featured as a skybox from April to July of that year before moving groundside in August. And even though he abandoned the land in September, I believe, the forest remained for a number of months to come. You can visit Collagesity’s Noru Museum for more pictures of the forest and attached Blue Feather Gallery (and more!).

Snapshot1139_001

Baker actually also owned this land in Mujigae south of the sign pictured both above and below. The hollowed out place he looks toward is where a smaller version of the Blue Feather Gallery was positioned in spring 2011. Yes, Baker’s been involved with the Noru area for quite some time now.

Snapshot1139_005

Interesting statue just across the mahogany colored Chilbo sidewalk from where the largest version of my Blue Feather Gallery was once position. Hard to take a picture of it as a whole, though.

This is an essential duplicate of Tired Falls in Collagesity, sans tire. In fact, I believe the property’s owner, Oddprofessor Snoodle, yet another local with Chilbo attachments, might have copied this from my old neighborhood holdings originally, along with some of my other copyable objects at the time. I have bunches of ’em! I’ll have to provide a tour of Oddprofessor’s very interesting, physics oriented science museum in Mujagae sometime now I’m back in the hood. And, as I’m rechecking just now, O. Snoodle also owns the Sentinel sculpture pictured above.

The fringes of Chilbo proper come into view.

The colonnade fronted building to the right in the below photo turned out to be an art museum…

And there’s a, um, connection with Connectivism, which is an Olando7 focus as well. They must know each other virtually through Chilbo.

“Do you…

… have amnesia, Carrcassonnee?”

Big C:

I have backward forgetfulness. I am blank slate. Feed me my reality.

Baker Bloch:

Interesting. You don’t mind if I call you Big C do you?

Carrcassonnee:

Call me Carrcassonnee.

Baker Bloch:

Alright. Done.

Carrcassonnne:

Aren’t you going to ask about my hanging moss?

Snapshot1131_026

Baker Bloch (lying):

It’s nice. What does… it mean?

Carrcassonnee:

It is my arm drape of reality. My arm understands, and will tell the rest of my body soon. Then I will know. I have to wait, let’s see, 50 moons and 20 suns.

Baker Bloch (counting):

That’s over 24 years!

Carrcassonnee:

I can wait. I have nothing else to do except chit chat with the townspeople and give them advise about their own lives.

Baker Bloch:

Let’s reexamine that thought in a moment. So Carrcassonnee…

Carrcassonnee:

Yes?

Baker Bloch:

Do you know about LOST? The tv show I mean.

Carrcassonnee:

Yes?

Baker Bloch:

Then you do know.

Carrcassonnee:

Yes.

Baker Bloch:

Can I ask you some questions about it? That may be why I’m here tonight, and the island formed and the plane crashed. Did you know that the former owner of this land also had a crashed plane — just east of here, not a stone’s throw away. I believe there was an article in the Chilbo press about it. Hold on please, Carrcassonnee…

—–

“Well, I can’t find a picture. Sorry about the delay.”*

Carrcassonnee:

OK. Not OK. Just kidding.

Baker Bloch:

So back to LOST.

Carrcassonnee:

Ask.

Baker Bloch:

Do you know of [delete name]?

Carrcassonnee:

I am told — I peeked at the script this time — that we do not need to talk about that tonight.

Baker Bloch:

Okay, what do you wish to talk about?

Carrcassonnee:

You are here visiting me. You ask.

Baker Bloch:

I think we should talk about LOST.

Carrcassonnee:

Then ask. Don’t ask about the Hanja infohub, don’t ask about Chilbo or Parktown. Ask about LOST.

Baker Bloch:

You seem to be indicating you’d like to talk about local matters.

Carrcassonnee:

Am I? (smiles)

Baker Bloch:

So what about Parktown?

Carrcassonnee:

Parktown and Chilbo both can give you energy if you wish. They have dwindled but are still kindled. You sit between the two — more than ever. You are in upper Norum now and that’s the urban part. Rural has gone bye bye.

Baker Bloch:

Interesting. So you have knowledge of the Norum Woods.

Carrcassonnee:

I have knowledge about Second Life but not First Life. I cannot remember my *user*.

Baker Bloch:

What about this Perch fellow? Are you the same as Perch?

Carrcassonnee:

I am the Head of Perch, so, yes, I am Perch.

Baker Bloch:

Tell me more about this Perch, then, if you can.

Carrcassonnee:

Perch came from Hanjaland, where trees are ferns and ferns are trees. Satin… or Satan… commanded him to… well, he ran away from home. He had to sleep to get away, thus creating Tired Falls. He climbed the falls to House Orange — he fell asleep. Cutting z’s. Omega point. Shadow Man… er, I mean Satin couldn’t follow him into dreams. So he escaped… here.

Baker Bloch:

This sounds like a [somewhat] different story than last night concerning Perch, Carrcassonnee.

Carrcassonnee:

Yes.

Baker Bloch:

You said Perch ran a restaurant… no it was a general store.

Carrcassonnnee:

And the Norum Museum was a bowling alley. (pause)

Baker Bloch:

So there was a….

Carrcassonnee (cutting Baker Bloch off):

Yes.

Baker Bloch:

The Residents.

Carrcassonnee:

Yes. Mass Acre… age.

Baker Bloch:

From the North.

Chilbo Expands to Noru Sim

3183506519_688b04cf9e

Residents Olando7 Decosta and Violetta LeShelle have recently purchased a large plot of land on the north end of the Noru sim – two sims north of Chilbo! This effectively expands the borders of the Chilbo Community by quite a lot! Congrats to Olando and Violetta, we’ll all look forward to visiting your new space when it’s ready.

Mystery Plane Crash Near Noru Project (Greater Chilbo)

Violetta Leshelle and Olando7 Decosta are building a living&meeting space in the far away Noru sim. The land is part of Greater Chilbo.

Right now you will find at Noru a box with the invitation for a French language virtual law seminar in Second Life, and if that is not weird enough, also a plane wreck.

The plane crashed nearby the main building without causing fatalities. No bodies were found and it remains a mystery who the pilots were.

Maybe you can find out? Visit the crash scene and tell the true story of what happened! More pictures are available on Flickr…

I briefly visited the site of the plane crash and it was VERY eerie, I kept hearing strange voices and couldn’t figure out where it was coming from… until I realize it was your neighbors on voice! laugh! I was one confused Fleep!
Olando7 Decosta Says:
February 3rd, 2009 at 10:13 am

Fleep, you are even more right than you think about the voices. At nights, voices and whisperings are heard on the crash spot. My neighbors got so scared they installed a giant prim to protect themselves.

Obvious LOST references in there. 🙂

Assignments

bb:

Rather newly former Edwardston Resident is assigned the Heterocera continent. Much new history since the 2012 creation of the Frank and Herman Einstein! Blog, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Yes, but not much more will be written[ about it]. VWX Town is an endpoint. The Diagonal. The ultimate SL town for ya.

bb:

Then *you* are assigned the Nautilus continent.

Hucka D.:

Glad to be of service.

bb:

Then Karoz is assigned Jeogeot?

Hucka D.:

Too big of an assigment for him alone. You’ll have to help. You are the full time person on the job and he is your part-time assistant. Just like the [Salad] Days.

bb:

Sounds like it. How about Baker Blinker for Sansara.

Hucka D.:

Sounds good. Then Bracket Jupiter, of course, for Corsica, his home continent. Like Jeogeot is Karoz’s home continent. How about Wilsonia?

bb:

She’s from Otherland, which I don’t think I’ll write about. Similar to Azure Islands. We’ll just skip those sub-histories and focus on mainland and the 6 primary continents, 3 from the east[ern hemisphere] and 3 from the west. Jeogeot and its Pietmond as inspired by Chilbo was my main home. More posts written about that continent that almost all the others combined.

Hucka D.:

That’s why Karoz needs help. He’s limited within his circle [“Dark Side”].

bb:

So who does that leave? We’ve covered the older, eastern continents of Heterocera, Sansara and Jeogeot. Oh… Maebaleia, also Satori.

Hucka D.:

You’ll have to double up on that one.

bb:

Um, I think I’d rather have help.

Hucka D.:

It’s most linked to Jeogeot[ though].

bb:

Started with Crabwoo, a twin to Chilbo. Center urban area of *Lemon* Lab, as Chilbo was for Linden Lab, at least potentially.

Hucka D.:

Correct…

bb:

As coded within Carrcass-2. As coded within the 2002 crop circles from Chilbolton and Crabwood, 8 1/2 miles distant from each other.

Hucka D.:

The standard Second Lyfe measurement. The Measure. It all opened up when you moved to Jeogeot in May, 2009, don’t you think.

bb:

I do think.

Hucka D.:

You found the Rabbit Hole, then, linking Jeogeot and Maebaleia. The Rabbit Hole is directly from Carrcass-0, the last carrcass completed before the start of the Baker Blinker Blog, and the source of The Ancients that put Baker Blinker under a curse, and almost did the same for Baker Bloch before he broke his servitude[ to sinister Mr. Low]. The Rabbit Hole was a way for Jeogeotines to travel to Maebaleia before the days of instant [teleport]. Before the days of the Lindens, even, and their Limey lab. Lemons were the fruit of the days. Salad days[ once more]. (pause) Avatars could even smell, taste, touch in those days. The Linden Grid changed all that. Made everything square and regulated and bland bland bland. Old stuff poked through, like your Hilo Peak, like your Okinu glyphs. Like your Mr. Low below Baker Isle in the Baker sim. Like the spirits in the middle of the Kerchal Forest. These were old days bleeding through on the oldest Linden controlled continent. Salad Bar Jack knew about that as well.

bb (correcting):

Salazar Jack, Hucka D. Salazar. Salad Bar was inspired by that avatar name.

Hucka D.:

So in our mega-opus you’ll have to start with Sansara and these Ancient bleedthrough. Bleeding through from Carrcass-0. Bleeding through from pre-Carrcass days, or, in your terms the Positive Carrcassess.

—–

bb:

How about assigning Karoz to Maebaleia, Hucka D. After all, he was the one who fell through the portal linking the Korean Channel to the Blue Feather Sea.

—–

“It is the story mainly of my cousin Peter The Good, who came to Crabwoo University of Maebaleia to get educated up as a lawyer, hoping to study under the great and powerful Blue Feather Douglas, who then lived in a giant pyramid at the southern end of the Blue Feather Sea. The sea was named after him instead of visa versa?”

Hucka D.:

Already, Karoz is asking questions. Karoz, you attended Crabwoo U. as well, studing to be a Priest or Priestess of TILE.

Karoz:

TILE was the rave religion of central Maebaleia at the time. And perhaps the whole continent, since Crabwoo was the primary urban area. Bigger than Linden’s Chilbo in those days. Before the curse. The Purse Curse.

Hucka D.:

Karoz, the curse started when Biggie was extracted from the Blue Feather Sea and brought to rest in the center of the Crabwoo U. campus, on the central mall. Later mythology turns this into a giant “E”, but originally it was a fish, similar to a blue whale but also different. Why was the fish brought to the campus?

Karoz:

We needed its power. It was “hooked” up.

Hucka D.:

What does that mean?

Karoz:

It became like a battery (pause).

Hucka D.:

What were the dates?

Karoz:

Peter and I went to The Moon[ sim] afterwards. We found Biggie’s twin there. Biggie’s twin was saved from torture by removing it from Maebaleia and sending it to [ the continent’s] Moon. The Barracuda sisters, perhaps Wilson, were assigned to guard it there. They ruled 3 sims, and still do. They made purses. Curse purses. They were outside the jurisdiction of Maebaleia and Blue Feather Douglas.

Biggie was pregnant at the time of extraction[ from the Blue Feather Sea]. Oliver was the baby calf, raised originally in the Super Bowl, the 13th mainland sink or Baker’s Dozen Sink as we called it sometimes. Sometimes?

Hucka D.:

Karoz, where were you born?

Karoz:

Chilbo. Norum, Chilbo.

Hucka D.:

Your mother is Sapphire. Where was she born?

Karoz:

Yd Island.

Hucka D.:

Doesn’t Yd Island and the included Nautilus continent also have a great and powerful fish?

Karoz:

Yes. He or she controlled a 10 sim hole that was connected to Jeogeot as well. This was a later project. Jeogeot had its own Moon, but it was still under the jurisdiction of the [primary ruler of Jeogeot].

Hucak D.:

Was this Sapphire? Was she queen?

Karoz:

Of the eastern part[ of Jeogeot, yes].

Hucka D.:

And other parts, the western parts?

Karoz:

Brainard.

—–

“Biggie was seen as the 3d-ing of the TILE religion. It became the E of TILE… fulfilled. Before, TILE was seen as just going ’round in circles in perpetuity. After Biggie, it stopped, and the E became the all. The E is the Korean Channel. Directly.”

Hucka D.:

Interesting, Karoz. And thanks. Sounds like the avatars of Maebaleia created Jeogeot, built around this channel.

Karoz:

The channel was originally a giant hole or void slot, as I knew it in my younger years. I use to toss rocks into it and watch them disappear in inky blackness. Then all of a sudden the channel was there, appearing as if out of nowhere. Some people had always remembered it there, was the problem. I didn’t. I remember the inky black. I remember the void. We were called [delete name], we special people who knew the time before. It was because I was part moss.

Hucka D.:

Again much interesting, Karoz. Is this when you remembered Gene Fade, your user?

Karoz:

Yes. I remembered who my user was. And those who remember the void also remembered their user. It was a Shock.

Hucka D.:

How old were you at the time?

Karoz:

11.

Hucka D.:

You knew, then, that Sapphire was not your true mother.

Karoz:

No. I still did not know that, although I suspected. My true mother is [delete name].

Hucka D.:

You actually took a transport to the Moon of Jeogeot to find that out.

Karoz:

Yes. I saw my mother there but did not recognize her at the time. She was in frozen stasis.

Hucka D.:

When did you pass through the portal to Maebaleia from the Korean Channel?

Karoz:

23.

Hucka D.:

Did you plan this on purpose?

Karoz:

No. But it was on purpose[ by the people on the “Other Side”].

Hucka D.:

Did you know about these [people on the “Other Side”] before this?

Karoz:

Yes. They were part of Chilbo.

Hucka D.:

You lived in Norum, though.

Karoz:

Yes.

Hucka D.:

And you lived with Sapphire in what we call the House of Truth in the blogs, up until age, what 13 or 14?

Karoz:

Yes.

Hucka D.:

And when did you meet Peter?

Karoz:

I learned about Sunklands at about the age of 12.

Hucka D.:

Peter attempted to recruit you.

Karoz:

That was the [purpose].

Hucka D.:

What did he say or promise?

Karoz:

He said that all those who remember The Void are gathering in The Sunklands.

Hucka D.:

What did this mean?

Karoz:

It meant we — they — were moving to The Sunklands in order to avoid having their memory totally erased. It would not be long.

Hucka D.:

Did you go to The Sunklands?

Karoz:

Yes.

Hucka D.:

How long did you stay there?

Karoz:

7 years.

Hucka D.:

So you went to The Sunklands when you were 13 or 14?

Karoz:

17. 18.

Hucka D.:

What was happening in Sunklands?

Karoz:

Like you should ask. You were there.

Hucka D.:

I suppose I was. There was a similar void still in the center of Big Sink. Can you describe that?

Karoz:

You were in control of it.

Hucka D.:

What was it? is what I’m asking you.

Karoz:

It replaced the Korean Channel void, when the Korean Channel came. A-Z.

Hucka D.:

It has been compared to the 18th hole of a golf course, where game ends.

Karoz:

Sunklands was like a giant golf course[, yes].

Hucka D.:

But this hole was not the same as the Rabbit Hole of Blackmount.

Karoz:

No. It was in the center of Big Sink[ as stated].

Hucka D.:

And Brainard controlled the hole?

Karoz:

Brainard guarded the hole.

Hucka D.:

What does that mean?

Karoz:

You could not make eye contact with Brainard or you would be assimilated.

Hucka D.:

Sounds like no one lived in the Big Sink, then.

Karoz:

No. A Great Tree grew from its center. Similar to the Chilbo good tree but much larger. Supposedly 10 times larger.

Hucka D.:

What is the tree to Brainard.

Karoz:

The tree is Brainard. Brainard is the seed of the tree.

—–

bb:

Sorry for the pause in the action, but I understand this is coded [Seed, Tree] into north Georgia by Lisa the V. in her GNIRPS. So it must be real. And the presence of [also] Tiger and Persimmon there indicates the golf association. Brainard is like a golf ball, which dropped into the 18th hole to end game to become a seed-tree. Tree-seed. So it looks like Karoz is talking about a past-present-future situation with Brainard. Brainard can appear in his round, seed form, guarding the hole that he is destined to drop through, and he is also the future tree he is destined to become after dropping into the hole as the seed. The tree is a persimmon tree, apparently. Tiger Woods indicates trees as well. Can’t see woods for trees, etc.

—-

bb:

And further, we have Quartz here, which seems to directly indicate Lisa the V. and her Quartz Brook on Wealthy Mtn., source (seed?) of her actual wealth and ability to buy or own the mountain in the first place.
