“Eye of Rye…

corsicabig10

…is close enough to Video, Greene County in this original Corsica-Pennsylvania overlap that we can latch on to the association. Eye of Rye is Video. Media, Pennsyvania may stand for Audio (missing in GNIRPS) or perhaps audio and video together to make sync. We know from old Corsica material, Bracket, that Chasm Deep represents the ear of the overall elephant[ in the room], as Eye of Rye originally stands for the eye before it is weakened as it were…

Bracket Jupiter:

… as it is… (smiles)

bb:

… and move to the more correctly placed Egg Hill sink overlapped with Centre County, Penn.

Bracket:

That’s the eye of course. Have you realized I teach at WW, starting in the Spring?

bb:

But it’s really Sam Parr State College. And you teach the political history of Second Life mainland, not the actual, real world.

Bracket:

Correctomundo!

bb:

That’s why we’re boning up!

Bracket:

Thank you once again. I enjoyed our time together as teacher and pupil. I hope I taught you well. Now you can teach me.

bb:

It’s ultimately subconscious, though.

Bracket:

Okay.

bb:

But thank you. It’s a brilliant move. We work together again at least on a subconscious level. And through us the other teacher. The one who I didn’t get to know. In-between is Green. We are in Winona County, Wisconsin[ as well], starting at the red and also blue Rollingstone covers at Winona itself… herself, and attempting to see Green again behind. 1 eye. Illuminati obviously.

bb:

Media would be on the opposite side of the Pennsylvania-Corsica melding, at the place I first visited on the continent, Bracket. That could be important as well. Here’s the related link:

That’s the first post on Corsica I created, btw. Alpha.

corsicabig02

bb;

When you flip Pennsylvania around underneath the Corsica outline, Media almost exactly replaces Video, and then you have Eye of Rye following the circle of the upper part of Delaware state itself, which Delaware County, Penn. is just above.

Bracket:

Well… tell me more about Greene County and your real life family, baker b.

bb:

Coded into this is father, sister, brother. Father is corner sync. Ned Ryerson from Groundhog Day. It’s pretty obvious.

Bracket:

Yes, that’s cool. You already told me about it in[ the briefing].

bb:

Sister as well. Sister use to own property in Nebo. That’s where that name comes from. 32 acres. And Nebo is the same as Video. Time is nearby also, like in Illinois.

bb:

And of course you have Corsica as a town within Pennsylvania, just below Forest County and in the same county as Punxsutawney.

Bracket:

Microcosm, yes.

map sinking feeling 02

Wyoming in Iowa County in Wisconsin, a unique location because of the 3 different state names it highlights, is certainly also highlighted by this place, called “[Frank Lloyd] Wright’s architectural self portrait.”

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taliesin_%28studio%29

Traveling down another arm that is the octopus of this map series, I noted that The Arches in Winona County, Minnesota (the Gopher state) is an anagram of Teachers, and Teacher is a story in Winesap highlighted by other maps. I think it partially refers to the teachers of James Franco, who has famously returned to not one but several schools to study and earn degrees at recently. One has already been pictured in the blog, and it is coded into Winona County as well.

120908b_james_franco

A logical deduction would have it that The Arches, in Warren township next to a Wilson township, may refer to a teacher or perhaps multiple teachers of that school. Coincidentally, about a month ago I started corresponding again with an old boss who may be teaching at this very college during spring semester. Is this the teacher referred to? If not, it still seems to fit in somewhere. And what about the only other population place in this Warren township: Wyattsville? Is this the name of a teacher as well? The colorful, hand drawn map of Winona County jokingly associates this town with Wyatt Earp, although there appears to be no other direct connection outside the names themselves. But we’ve also previously noted that Wyatt was born in a Warren County (Illinois) and also had a younger brother named Warren with whom he shared many of his wild west adventures.

Teachers? (Probably.)

riddle01

If so, it means another red-blue focusing (see Winona-Rollingstone below), and a gateway to the future *beyond* any need for such teachers. I will be free but on my own. It will be good. Red-blue, then Beyond Green. I think it has to do with friendship as well (Jenifer Anniston). I cannot be friends with my teachers, can I? I was taught to create procedures for what I do (work). That it?

So it was important enough to make this map sync, hmm.

Maybe Media, Pennsylvania is an important key. Audiovisual synchs, after all, involve protection of the attached audio and visual media. Maybe this is a meeting place, a middle town.

Audio (none):

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Media,_Pennsylvania

Media and the FBI

Media may be best known for secret government documents that were illegally seized there by activists in 1971 and distributed nationwide. On March 8 of that year, the Citizens’ Commission to Investigate the FBI raided an FBI “resident agency” in Media. They later released thousands of documents to major newspapers [the *media*] around the country. These documents revealed controversial and illegal FBI tactics, like the recruitment of Boy Scouts as informants, and confirmed for the first time the existence of COINTELPRO, an FBI program to “expose, disrupt, misdirect, discredit, or otherwise neutralize” dissident groups in the United States.[13]

And in Warren’s kane forest as well, it appears. Warren knows, or thinks he does. It’s obvious from that list, to me, that Winona is actually Ohiowa Oming, not Miley. Or both in one. We can speak to her directly if she chooses to attend Sam Parr State College for another semester. If so she’ll have to take care of the roosters.

Here is the wikipedia article on the Indian princess the town of Winona, MN was named for.

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

I’ll quote some passages…

In the traditional Dakota language, “Winona” is not a personal name, but a general term for a first-born child of any class distinction who happens to be female.

The concept of the central figure as a “princess” is in keeping with a European-American stereotype about Native American “princesses.” In fact, the Sioux do not have an equivalent title for “princess” in any of the major dialects.[2]

Today “Winona” has become regularly used as a personal and place name throughout the United States.

This further statement stood out for me. Most Winona place names are in the midwest, like here in Minnesota. But Twain attaches a similar Winona “lover’s leap” tale to Winona Falls near the Pennsylvania/New Jersey border, much further east. Is this, then, the name origin for the Minnesotan Winona and other midwest versions? I might be a little confused here (and the sentence is confusing, as there isn’t a Winona Falls in Camden County, Missouri or Cameron Park, Texas as far as I can ascertain), but I thought I’d mention it because we have 2 twin Winona’s again to deal with, parallel with the 2 Winona Ryder images gracing the Rolling Stones covers from the early and mid nineties that now stare back at us jointly through one eye in this post.

Mark Twain in Life on the Mississippi wrote: “There are fifty Lover’s Leaps along the Mississippi from whose summit disappointed Indian girls have jumped.” Other locations with a similar legend include Winona Falls in Pennsylvania, Camden County, Missouri and Cameron Park in Waco, Texas.

Interesting that this particular Winona in Minnesota was spared, unlike the other same named leapers.

So we’re back to Clyde and Big Chimney.

Clyde (excerpt):

clyde02

Hucka D.:

You were fishing for an answer and you were pointed toward The Mouse[ again]. Not just A Mouse mind you. *The*…

bb:

… yeah, I know. *The* Mouse. How did R. Booger Hayes then know about The Mouse? And I guess we’ll be entering that queer territory of “Mouse-speak” here, once more.

Hucka D.:

It didn’t, but it will.

bb:

See?

Hucka D.:

Not in that way, but in that way. Half and half.

bb:

Will we ever get any straight answers about this?

Hucka D.:

Big Chimney is a folder. Q109 but R110. Half and half[ again]. Abbaddon… a bad one. Kills us all.

bb:

Sounds like Satan, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

He is. Or she. He probably. Half and half?

—–

I decided to let Hucka D. rest for later. One curious thing struck me about the entire list of Clyde pop places in our US of A. If you alphabetize by county, Clyde in Pennsylvania is in an Indiana County and immediately below it we have a Clyde in Iowa County from the state of Wisconsin. I looked both up on topo maps — turns out Clyde, Wisconsin is near a Wyoming, which is also in Iowa County. Then in looking up a map of Indiana County in Penn. online, the town name Utah stuck out from among the rest.

That’s a Wyoming (town) in Iowa (county) in Wisconsin (state), and then a Utah in Indiana in Pennsylvania.

Iowa

indiana

I wondered how many towns with the same name as a state existed in a county with the same name as a different state which existed in a state different from either of the other two. So I decided to check… didn’t take too long, about 45 minutes. Let’s even include Washington in the results. Here they are — not many.

This is the first that came up in my search, just starting with Alabama (town) and moving forward in the alphabet. A California exists in a Washington County in Pennsylvania. This is perhaps interesting because the town has come up before in this blog, because of its variant name of Philipsburg [LINK].

california01

So here’s the rest:

kansas01

texaskentucky02

washington02

wyoming02

But if we eliminate anything connected with the name Washington, by far the most common state name on all 3 levels, then we are left with our two original examples and Kansas in a Delaware County in Oklahoma. Oh but by the way, a Carolina and a Wyoming exist in Washington County, Rhode Island, just to be complete about all this.

Kansas-Delaware-Oklahoma doesn’t strick me as odd as Utah-Indiana-Pennsylvania or Wyoming-Iowa-Wisconsin. For one, there’s 6 Delaware counties in the US, as opposed 2 two named Iowa (Wisconsin and Iowa itself) and our 1 Indiana county (Pennsylvania). So let’s say I stumbled upon a unique map oddity through just a single extrapolation of Clyde town names across our country. Does it mean anything? Why these 6 states in 2 triads? Well, let’s take this angle. If I had to choose between the 2 triads in question, I might give the nod to Wyoming-Iowa-Wisconsin as being stranger, since Wyoming, Wisconsin is still a village and Utah, Pennsylvania appears to be extinct as far as I can tell. Also, Clyde is much closer to Wyoming in Wisconsin than Utah in Pennsylvania. So… Iowa and Wyoming have actually been coupled together with yet another state in this blog before to create a joke character called Ohiowa Oming. That’s 3 states again, with Ohio subbing for Wisconsin then, as it were. As it is.

Speaking of the Sam Parr State College enrolled students for its initial session, Hucka D. follows the introduction of Redd Foxx with this:

https://bakerbloch.wordpress.com/2014/09/16/19298/

bb:

Who else has enrolled? I guess we should end this surrealism soon.

Hucka D.:

Dumbgo the Insignificant. He’s probably the worst of the bunch. Patty Pepper Mint herself has enrolled for a jewelry class.

bb:

I believe that one got cancelled.

Hucka D.:

Oh right. A shame. Story Room themselves will teach the class called “Composing with the colors red, yellow, blue”. That should be exciting.

bb:

Kind of a Piet Mondrian effect, then.

Hucka D.:

Pietmond?

bb:

Umm…

Hucka D.:

Who else? The B. R. Cyrus twins Idaho Oker and Ohiowa Oming. Oh, and Fredrika Mercurious, the famous dump truck driver. And Pletiosaurus Rex. I believe that might be it.

bb:

Thank you, Hucka D. Good night, and we’ll get to those collage interpretations soon.

Ohiowa Oming and her sister Idaho Oker (obvious play) as the twins of B. R. Cyrus, who is probably the same as Billy Ray Cyrus or, more probably, a variant BRC. Surely you the reader or readers have heard of Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus by now. Of course you have unless you’ve been living in a cave. I only live in a cave during a complete loony eclipse, but we won’t go into that. B.R. was or is the coach of the Chilbo high school football team. Sad I’ve just left that virtual area, but now I have the Rubi Woods again (yea!). I guess I’ll have to wait for Hucka D. to wake up again around dusk before getting more answers. See you then!

There is a big drop in front of him, separating carved entity from river. He lies at the end of a 15 (natural) step passage. People marche right by him all the time.

The Arches, MN

DME 6090 and two other SD40-2s drag an empty moonshine train up Stockton Hill through an area known as “The Arches.” Clearly you can see why it has that name. The future civil engineer in me loves finding cool bridges like this one while out railfanning.

When we saw this train sitting in Minnesota City waiting for a warrant, there was no doubt a chase was in order up Stockton Hill, something we’d never had the chance to do before. But since we’d never done it before, we also didn’t have a great idea of where all the good photo spots were – just that one could follow the tracks for the most part on adjacent road. So when we saw a nice girder bridge just to the east of this bridge we set up there and were quite pleased with the shot. Then we continued only a few thousand feet down the road and found this slick double stone arch bridge. The keystone on the left arch has a build date of 1882. This was a fun chase on a Sunday morning for two railfans from Central Wisconsin. Sometimes the best chases are those where you don’t really know the territory and end up stumbling onto the best of shots by accident.

More photos from this chase and other photos shot on the BNSF and CP on the same day can be found here:

Dead Center Hill (also see upper right corner of above photo): This is where it all went down. Warren also knew of the place; no lie this time. Warren again separated from Wilson and climbed this hill just to the south of the river, leaving a piece of kane (Old Kane) as a marker.

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

Wyatt, born on March 19, 1848, to Nicholas Porter Earp and his second wife, Virginia Ann Cooksey, was named after his father’s commanding officer in the Mexican-American War, Captain Wyatt Berry Stapp, of the 2nd Company Illinois Mounted Volunteers. Some evidence supports Wyatt Earp’s birthplace as 406 South 3rd Street in Monmouth, Illinois, though the street address is disputed by some.[who?] Monmouth is in Warren County in western Illinois.[5]

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.

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.

The reverend who has broken a corner of the Glass in his bell tower study also thinks of Kate — the Lady.
