“You see, Hucka D., when you enter Lego/ into the GNIRPS oracle machine these twinned Winfields come up, and we know that Winfield is the same as /Winesap/ through Kansas.”

Hucka D.:

Yup. But you’re losing your few readers, once more.

bb:

This can’t be coincidence[ however].

Hucka D.:

Of course not.

bb:

It goes back to or enters “Map Synching Feeling” again and all that labyrinthian stuff.

Hucka D.:

A way in, a way out. That’s all you can do[ at this point].

“Let’s go this way, then. The Contraption begins to show up again in the Sam Parr series following Falmouth, where it initially appears.”

At this point, I realized I had to go meet Karoz over in his one room apartment above the Bodega market through Baker Bloch. I rang him up and asked him if he was cool about visiting the galleries for a bit, and that I wanted to take some pictures for the blog. He said okay.

Soon we were in the Red Umbrella gallery Fal Mouth Moon, looking at pieces where The Contraption first shows up.

Snapshot_010_002

“These are the two aspects of me,” he said when seeing these two matching green images in collage 57. They are… the 2 Roger Pine Ridges? Explain that Baker.”

So I, through Baker Bloch, explained the story of the 2 Roger Pine Ridges to Karoz, and how both visited our house last summer. My nephew had just mentioned Roger “Syd” Barrett on a facebook post today, because it was his birthday. I started to defend the music of Barrett more to my nephew, but decided against it. Best to come to the blog and do a solid night’s work. Best to talk about Barrett here, if anywhere.

“I understand Furry Karl thinks Syd is still in the woods,” says Karoz. “Do you think this is the same as Roger Pine Ridge?”

“I guess so, Karoz.” Realizing the tour wasn’t going to work since one of them falls asleep while standing up when the other is active, he suggests they go back to Karoz’s apartment and begin the interview.

“Haven’t we done this before?” Baker Bloch asks while walking with Karoz to the market. “I mean, didn’t we start an interview before and got sidetracked?”

“My memory is not what it use to be, Baker. Do you wish to consult the blog before proceeding?”

“Maybe we should Karoz. I tell you what, I’ll catch up with you tomorrow night if you don’t mind. About the same time?”

“That will be fine, Baker. Goodnight.”

—–

When arriving back at his house on the western edge of town, Furry Karl was waiting for him on the porch.

“Hey Baker Bloch, um, do you mind if I crash for a couple of nights in your front room? The heat broke over at my bar.”

“Um Karl, you’re missing the lower half of your body.”

Karl looked down. “Oh my God. Oh-my-God! What just happened here?!”

Snapshot2166_004

Half an hour later, after Karl’s full body had returned and he had calmed down some, he admitted he was lying about the bar’s heat being broken. It was the woods again. Baker himself had heard some kind of noises in that direction last night.

“You shouldn’t have released that book “Blood Curdling Tells of The Forest”, Karl,” voiced Baker. “And what about that typo — “Tells” instead of “Tales”? You didn’t like the original title?”

“Well, it was the initial reviews, which weren’t so hot, Baker Bloch. So I just let the admittedly rather massive typo stand; deemed it fate. This fellow *Blood Curdling* who tells stories about the forest is the one who doesn’t write so good, not me. And now I’ve invented his profile on facebook, so I guess he’s legit and all.”

“I’ll find him and friend him tonight. I’ll rez you a sleeping bag, Karl. I know your own inventory is rather light.” Baker decides to be a nice guy this evening to poor Karl. He’s just released a pretty bad book about hauntings. He’s *just* recovered from losing half his body all of a sudden.

He tucks Karl in, and then unwisely begins to read “Blood Curdling Tells of the Forest” before turning in himself.

Snapshot2166_011

—–

The next day a compromise was reached. Baker and Karl jointly decide that it would be best to move the Hole in the Wall bar to Collagesity, and above the Confluence Pool directly behind the town diner. It was a tight fit, but seemed to work after a little terraforming.

Snapshot2166_014

Baker set some pretty strict personal boundary rules right off the bat, since Karl was practically next door to him. Karl had to *call* him before coming over — couldn’t just drop in on a whim. And Baker rationalizes that it’s going to be quite wicked to have a bar just around the corner to wet his whistle. “Hey, you call me too before you come over,” requests Karl, and then laughs it off. But one thing Baker Bloch knew is that Karl didn’t need to live over there in the middle of the Rubi sim by himself any longer. Next to the heart of those woods. No he didn’t.

map happenings 02

cub: 1 of 1:

As a tigress whose cub had been threatened would she appear, coming out of the shadows, stealing noiselessly along and holding the long wicked scissors in her hand.

Winesap-Cub Run (Kessinger), KY. Centerpoint? Hucka D.?

To complete the pseudo-triangle: Scissors-Run, TX. “Don’t run with scissors.”

scissors01

And to remind, only other “scissors” is in same Winesap story, helping to identify the 1st three stories of the book as rock, paper, scissors (Story Room?). Rock in Kansas next to Wilmot and in Cowley County obviously is the 1st story now, as Wilmot identifies a character in the last story and Cowley identifies the writer of an important introduction to the book (introduction between last and first stories, if end is seen as looping back into beginning in an urobouros situation). Udall next to Rock and Wilmot also seems important. Identifies, for one thing, the *whole of America*, and perhaps represents the *whole of Winesap* (end to beginning) in same function. Clever huh? We know Winfield from the same county, which is the seat, is another way of saying “Winesap”. Win(n)field-Atlanta is something we haven’t brought up yet in this blog. Hope Hucka D. doesn’t stop me here.

We also know Udall is a False Winner.

GNIRPS has considerable more stuff on Cubs. Chicago Cubs specifically. Town rival (south to north) Chicago White Sox (from White Stockings) has recently been angled into our story from an unrelated direction. Chicago is our Second City. Cubs even use to be called White Stockings for a short time in the 1800s.

5 mentions of Chicago in Winesap. 2 in the 4th story concerning Doc Parcival (this would be just beyond the 3rd with the only mention of “cub”), 2 in the 8th story concerning Alice Hindman, and then the last one comes from the last story concerning Willard himself and his Departure from Winesap. Here they are in story order, then:

He came from Chicago and when he arrived was drunk and got into a fight with Albert Longworth, the baggageman.

In Chicago there was a Doctor Cronin who was murdered.

The young newspaper man did not succeed in getting a place on a Cleveland paper and went west to Chicago.

In Chicago he boarded at a house where there were several women.

His train runs from Cleveland to where it connects with a great trunk line railroad with terminals in Chicago and New York.

There’s 1 US Cronin, and in one of the 5 Anderson Counties.

cronin01

Tiny Cronin is near something called the Anderson-Faulkenberry slayings site on this map.

Anderson-County

Word Faulkner is included in Faulkenberry. W. Faulkner could be said to slay S. Anderson in an Oedipal way (son kills/usurps father). Just saying.

http://www.forttours.com/pages/andersonfaulk.asp

On January 28, 1837, six rangers, eighteen-year-old Abram Anglin, David Faulkenberry, Evan Faulkenberry, Benjamin W. Douthit, James Hunter, and Columbus Anderson, had left the fort to search for strayed hogs in the Trinity River bottom. Finding some of them, Hunter and Douthit were sent back to Fort Houston to fetch a canoe.

In their absence, the other four were attacked by a band of Indians on the Trinity River at a point known as Bonner’s Ferry. Anderson was mortally wounded, although he managed to swim the river and crawl two miles before dying. David Faulkenberry, severely wounded, also swam the river and crawled about two- hundred yards away before succumbing to his wounds. The Indians later claimed that David’s son, Evan Faulkenberry, fought like a wild man, killing two Indians and wounding a third. Severely wounded and already scalped, he was said to have jerked from his captives’ grasp and swum halfway across the Trinity before dying. The fourth man, Abram Anglin, although hit by a bullet in the thigh, managed to swim the river and escape on horseback with James Hunter, one of the two men who had returned from Fort Houston in time to witness the Indian attack.

The 3 that died were Columbus Anderson, David Faulkenberry, and his son Evan Faulkenberry. All swam the river or attempted to, leaving Anderson County and entering the next county west in doing so or attempting to do so. Anderson swam the river and died 2 miles beyond. Faulkenberry the father swam the river and died 200 yards beyond. Faulkenberry the son swam about halfway into the river and died before making it to the opposite shore. The 4th man involved (Abram Anglin) swam the river and managed to escape.

Btw, Anderson County is not named for Columbus but for a guy named Kenneth Anderson, former v.p. of the Republic of Texas, a service then in the future for the Anderson-Faulkenberry victims.

What if this is more than it appears on the surface, somehow tied to the future Anderson-Faulkner relationship? Anglin — angling? (fishing?).

Speaking of which, let’s return to Winesap and “fish” again. Only 2 “fisher”s, but 5 “fish”. 1 of these fish stands alone (“fish”), and is in the same sentence as 1 of the 2 Winesap fishers or fishermen, let’s say. That one was caught but then let go back into the stream or brook from which it came. 2 of the “fish” are part of “fisher”s (obviously). The remaining 2 “fish” (that got away or weren’t caught?) are in the last story again, which also contains the last of 5 “Chicago”s. I’ve cited them before but here they are once more. They both make part of the word “fishing”.

In the fall and spring he spends his Sundays fishing in Lake Erie.

In the smoking car there was a man who had just invited Tom to go on a fishing trip to Sandusky Bay.

Recreational escape (different type of Departure) to Lake Erie in the direction of Sandusky Bay may be implied. Where could this take us?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mouse_Island_%28Ohio%29

Lake_Erie_Islands_Map

What could we be fishing for, ultimately?

And guess what? One of only 2 Longworth pplaces is in Fisher County, Texas (other is in remote area of Minnesota). That’s the other proper name mentioned in Winesap sentences containing Chicago. And that’s the only US Fisher County. Peculiar still?

up with maps! 03

03 counties named Marion with county seats also named Marion:

Marion County, Kansas
Marion County, Ohio
Marion County, South Carolina

We’ve spoken at length about Marion County, Ohio now and its Marion seat in the post before this one, concerning Warren G. Harding (and his nemesis and his wife who happens to be the daughter of the nemesis) and also S. Anderson. Does Marion County, Kansas give us more insights? Does the same named county in South Carolina? Actually the SC county is implied in the KS county. Let’s take a peep.

teach01

How about that, then? Teach/ comes up with only 1 hit in GNIRPS, and that’s right next to Willard (and Wallace and Tin City) in North Carolina, Hucka D. Hucka? Probably went back to bed (lucky him). I think it has to represent “Teacher”, or, more specific, Kate Swift. Willard heads into the Beach Grove to think about her. Rev. Hartman is also dwelling on her the same day, his Achilles heel. Heal.

Chicago White Stockings players:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Chicago_White_Stockings_players

Chicago White Sox players (White Sox were called White Stockings in their first several years of existence, or about 1901-1903):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Chicago_White_Sox_players

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago_White_Sox

One of the American League’s eight charter franchises, the Chicago team was established as a major league baseball club in 1900. The club was originally called the Chicago White Stockings, after the nickname abandoned by the Cubs, and the name was soon shortened to Chicago White Sox, believed to have been because the paper would shorten it to Sox in the headlines. At this time, the team played their home games at South Side Park. In 1910, the team moved into historic Comiskey Park, which they would inhabit for more than eight decades.

Black Sox scandal involving White Stockings>White Sox players, apparently already coded into GNIRPS [Pennsylvania]:

The 1919 World Series, however, was marred by the Black Sox Scandal, in which several prominent members of the White Sox (including Cicotte and [Shoeless Joe] Jackson) were accused of conspiring with gamblers to lose games purposefully.

player/: 2 of 2 (and pertaining to baseball as well):

Upon the baseball field Joe Welling stood by first base, his whole body quivering with excitement. In spite of themselves all the players watched him closely. The opposing pitcher became confused.

“Now! Now! Now! Now!” shouted the excited man. “Watch me! Watch me! Watch my fingers! Watch my hands! Watch my feet! Watch my eyes! Let’s work together here! Watch me! In me you see all the movements of the game! Work with me! Work with me! Watch me! Watch me! Watch me!”

With runners of the Winesburg team on bases, Joe Welling became as one inspired. Before they knew what had come over them, the base runners were watching the man, edging off the bases, advancing, retreating, held as by an invisible cord. The players of the opposing team also watched Joe. They were fascinated. For a moment they watched and then, as though to break a spell that hung over them, they began hurling the ball wildly about, and amid a series of fierce animal-like cries from the coach, the runners of the Winesburg team scampered home.

Also this (concerning shoeless and stockings, and heels again):

shoel/: 1 of 1:

Elmer was putting new shoelaces in his shoes. They did not go in readily and he had to take the shoes off. With the shoes in his hand he sat looking at a large hole in the heel of one of his stockings.

heel: 3 of 3:

The piece of glass broken out at the corner of the window just nipped off the bare heel of the boy standing motionless and looking with rapt eyes into the face of the Christ.

Will Henderson, who had on a light overcoat and no overshoes, kicked the heel of his left foot with the toe of the right.

With the shoes in his hand he sat looking at a large hole in the heel of one of his stockings.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/LaRue,_Ohio

LaRue has the distinction of being the smallest town to ever have an NFL franchise. In the early 1920s LaRue was home to famous athlete Jim Thorpe, who coached and played for the Oorang Indians football team in 1922–1923.

Notable residents

Dr. Charles E. Sawyer – a homeopathic physician who is blamed for giving a false diagnosis of U.S. President Warren G. Harding that led to Harding’s premature death, practiced medicine in LaRue.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Thorpe

Until 2005, most of Thorpe’s biographers were unaware of his basketball career[46] until a ticket discovered in an old book that year documented his career in basketball. By 1926, he was the main feature of the “World Famous Indians” of LaRue which sponsored traveling football, baseball and basketball teams. “Jim Thorpe and His World-Famous Indians” barnstormed for at least two years (1927–28) in parts of New York and Pennsylvania as well as Marion, Ohio. Although pictures of Thorpe in his WFI basketball uniform were printed on postcards and published in newspapers, this period of his life was not well documented.

On the evening before that stormy Thursday night when the Reverend Curtis Hartman sat in the bell tower of the church waiting to look at her body, young Willard had gone to visit the teacher and to borrow a book.

Dr. Krystal Bowden, the grown-up daughter of Curtis Morell, the remorseless killer seminarian-turned-shamus Owen Keane helped to lock up in The Lost Keats (1993), wants Owen to come out to Rapture to investigate the disappearance of elderly herbalist Prestina Shipe, evidently carried off in the middle of her breakfast.

The Owen Keane series are contemporary novels whose main character dropped out of a Roman Catholic seminary based on the School of Theology at St. Meinrad Archabbey. The series contains seven novels and one collection of short stories:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saint_Meinrad,_Indiana

Saint Meinrad is an unincorporated census-designated place in Harrison Township, Spencer County, Indiana, along the Anderson River and just off Interstate 64. It is home to the St. Meinrad Archabbey. It is situated about 55 miles east of Evansville. Because of the archabbey, St. Meinrad, along with Harrison Township, lies within the Archdiocese of Indianapolis instead of the much closer Diocese of Evansville, in which lies the rest of Spencer County.

Regarding Udall:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Udall_family#Grandchildren_of_David_King_Udall

Stewart Lee Udall : Son of Levi S. Udall, served as a Democratic U.S. Representative from Arizona (1955–1961) and also as Secretary of the Interior (1961–1969). Point Udall, U.S. Virgin Islands, the easternmost point in the United States, is named in his honor.

Morris King “Mo” Udall : Stewart’s brother, also served as a Democratic U.S. Representative from Arizona (1961–1991) and ran for the Democratic nomination for President of the United States in 1976. Point Udall, Guam, the westernmost point in the United States, is named in his honor.

Say what?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mo_Udall

In 1976, he ran for the Democratic nomination for President as a liberal alternative to Jimmy Carter, the former Governor of Georgia. Carter had gone from obscure maverick to front runner after a string of early caucus and primary victories, beginning in Iowa and New Hampshire. At the time of the Wisconsin primary in April, most of the original 10 candidates had dropped out, leaving Udall, Senator Henry “Scoop” Jackson of Washington, Governor George Wallace of Alabama, and Carter. Udall looked set to win the primary and as the returns ticked in, it looked like he would win it. This might have slowed down the Carter momentum. Udall was projected the winner, exclaiming “Oh, how sweet it is”. But as the election night progressed, Carter began chipping away at Udall’s lead, eventually going into the lead.

Some newspapers actually proclaimed Udall the winner because of his lead the night before, not unlike the famous incident in the 1948 presidential election, in which the headlines of the Chicago Tribune erroneously proclaimed “Dewey Defeats Truman.”

The Dewey Defeats Truman headline fiasco raises its ugly two heads again.

thorngrove01

Thorn Grove now. It just goes on and on. Wish I could share it with Hucka D., but he had to go to bed and get some well deserved sleep. Thorn Grove points out Chicago Heights (only 1 in US) points out, obviously, the Magic Book. And the other Thorn Grove in Tenn. is right next to Carter and Mascot, like Carter and Mascot are together in Harlan County, Nebraska with the Republican, Ragan, (Atlanta, Sacramento). I now think Udall in Kansas and this Carter (unlisted) in Nebraska relate through the false winning headlines, once more. Pretty sure of that. But why?

I think of Atlanta also in Nebraska, the state above this, and the relationship with Sacramento, as in Carter to Reagan.

Hucka D.:

Okay good.

That indicates a democrat and a republican that cancel each other out, causing neutrality. Which paves the wave for Norris. George Norris.

Don’t go in that direction quite yet. But: yes.

But that’s from the *last* story of the collection. Our “Rock” is the first. But Rock and Wilmot here [in Kansas] are very close.

Hucka D.:

Now the *bridge* here is obviously Cowley. He wrote the introduction to the book in the its most definitive version. And that’s also the name of a character in the book, although probably no relation to the other.

“”Let’s Roll”. New meaning to Carroll County’s Roller and proximate Plane No. 4?”

The 9/11 Commission later reported that the plane’s control wheel was turned hard to the right, causing it to roll on its back plow into an empty field in Shanksville, Pennsylvania at 580 miles an hour, killing everyone on board. The plane was twenty minutes of flying time away from its suspected target, the White House or the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. According to Vice President Dick Cheney, President George W. Bush had given the order to shoot the plane down had it continued its path to Washington.
