Red Umbrella 03

(start interpretation of Stonethrow Collage Series here…)

This is apparently a rough draft for the 1st collage of a new series that will probably be exhibited on the top floor of Collagesity’s Red Umbrella gallery. Coolie!

Baker enjoys the view at Lake Hans Loso on the Jeogeot continent. A small town has sprung up along its southern shores, which includes a couple of art galleries. Will Baker become a new resident?

Snapshot2004_001

But he still has Minoa’s Collagesity, neglected for a number of weeks now.

Snapshot2006_002

There’s life again in the town’s growing edge gallery: Red Umbrella. A new collage series is taking root. Will the pieces within number 10 again, like with the last 2 such series?

“Hucka D., if you’re ready I think we should talk about collage 02/03 already, just to get a bearing on what’s to come. So Hucka D. (pause) Hucka?”

Hucka D.:

Here.

bb:

Let’s take the left side first. This would be Collage 02 I suppose.

collage02test02ah

Hucka D.:

You have a Celina, Ohio woman, an artist prim and proper, inserting an eye into a yin/yang spherical symbol called the Taijitu. The iris of the eye is yellow. It is suppose to be a fish eye. [One of] the 4 Residents from the other side of the diptych has a yellow eye as well. He looks down [at Drink], while the other Residents look across[ or toward]. The yellow eye in the Taijitu looks up as opposed to down. This is the same eye.

The general setting for both collages is a cascade area just behind your present house in Blue Mountain. This is the first time in a collage of yours that you’ve included a location so close to your home. Yet you haven’t been down there in years, have you?

bb:

2 or 3 at least.

Hucka D.:

It’s time to go back.

bb:

Okay.

Hucka D.:

Anyway, that’s the location. Baker Bloch is positioned on a rock in front of the falls, arms extended. His right hand almost touches the head of the Celina woman artist who holds the big yellow eye. Below her is another picture of the same artist, hard at working painting other stuff, namely Easter related stuff. She has just finished a purple egg and is working on a blue one. We see the same purple and blue egg popsicles to the far left of the collage, which would be the wild, wild west as well.

bb:

Alright.

Hucka D.:

Aquaman[ with his Trident Streams] *use* to be there, standing on the blue egg. Presently it’s Superman positioned there instead. A bunny stands between the 2 eggs, waving merrily at passer bys. He’s a happy Easter bunny. He (or she) and Superman stand the same way.

Another bunny is directly below. It’s a reclining Bugs Bunny from the popular Warner Brothers cartoon series, uttering his most famous line: “What’s Up Doc?”. This is the same name as an important variant album by The Residents standing on rocks in the other half of the overall work. This is *their* bunny. Questions?

bb:

“What’s Up Doc” by The Residents Variants has been used recently in Carrcass-10, Hucka D. And more recently *Chuck* has come to see me. We walked the Bunny Trail over at Frank Park while he was here, talking about audiovisual synchronicities such as Carrcass-10 in the main. I counted 19 rungs on the bridge crossing the brook emptying from Bunny Pond. This is the same as the number of tracks off “What’s Up Doc?”.

Hucka D.:

I hear he has uncovered a body.

bb:

That could be so. At any rate, he’s treating the situation like there’s a body in his back side yard. I suppose there are bodies buried all over the place, especially in ancient places like Europe.

Hucka D.:

Uerope.

bb (looking again):

Big Bob is also in Collage 02, or at least part of his head, including the mouth. The mouth just touches the Celina woman’s head. What’s her name?

Hucka D.:

Marge. Or Jeffries.

bb:

Hmmm.

Hucka D.:

Short for Margerine. Butter isn’t better in this case.

bb:

Good to know.

Hucka D.:

Big Bob is desparately trying to speak[ to Marge]. Buttering her up?

bb:

Dunno, Hucka D. (looks again) It’s his eye she’s holding, after all.

Hucka D.:

He wishes to become whole. Yin and yang together. Taijitu. I like saying that.

bb:

You’re slurring the word, however. Just an observation.

Hucka D.:

I slur a lot of words.

bb:

Anyway, on the right side of Collage 02 we have several images of Superman, with one inverted in color. This brings him quite close to the colors of his colleague in crime fighting: Aquaman. I guess one could say that Superman rules the skies and Aquaman the seas.

Hucka D.:

Correct. Emotions.

bb:

He’s helping free Richard Prior from the rocks in Collage 03. He then flies him away to safety[ in the blue skies]. In a recent blog post I compared Superman to the “I” of TILE and Prior to the “y” of complementary Tyle.

supermanpryor03

Hucka D.:

That is correct again. Emotions.

bb:

Accompanying inverted Superman at the right hand top is a mashup of Fairuza Balk and Megan Follows, who played Anne Shirley and Dorothy Gale respectively. They’re in character here. Fairuza wears Megan’s hat — borrows her carrot colored pigtails for a bit.

Hucka D.:

That’s Red Head of course. Your new space. Have you built the Cabin yet?

bb:

Not yet.

Hucka D.:

It’s already there[ anyway]. You can see it if you try.

bb:

Interesting. Inverted Superman kind of covers the awkward section of the mashup of the two girls, Hucka D. [One of] his colors matches the orange hat of Anne. The orange ray from the flag in Collage 03 emits towards this hat as well. Orange points to orange. That’s the flag of Mercer County, which has Celina as the county seat. It is the rainbow. Minus one color.

Hucka D.:

Indigo.

bb:

Could be.

Hucka D.:

The I’s have it.

bb:

I suppose they could.

Hucka D.:

Superman rescues Prior from the Past. He becomes not Prior but Present. This is rescuing a past self, locked in the rocks of time. Drink is the jailkeeper. He holds the keys. He’s a bad ass.

collage02ac01c

bb:

He looks the role.

Hucka D.:

Stay away from Drink. He’ll bad ass you.

bb (nonplussed):

I will.

—–

Hucka D.:

Drink’s straw points down and Prior’s arm points up a bit. They’re very similarly shaped — too much so. They are one in their opposite directions. Red and blue. Obvious. Good work, baker b.

bb:

Thanks. Of course I didn’t do it.

Hucka D.:

Yes you did. Well… yes and no.

bb:

Thanks once more.

Hucka D.:

Then there’s reclining Baker Blinker whose lower part is hidden by the rocks at the cascade. She *is* the cascades. She balances mate Baker Bloch in the left half of the diptych, standing on his rock. This is archetypal male and female energies as well. Taijitu. How’s that?

bb:

Still slurred.

Hucka D.:

Awww. But Baker Blinker is obviously meant to compare to Bugs Bunny on Baker Bloch’s side of the overall work. Both recline. Both are propping themselves up with their right arm and elbow. Is Baker Blinker mimicking Bugs?

bb:

Not sure.

Hucka D.:

Anyway, we know all about the curse of Baker Blinker by Drink from early in the Baker Blinker Blog — her blog. You have your own blog now. Baker Bloch Blog.

bb:

That’s Frank and Herman, Einstein!, yes. The Baker Blinker Blog is my first blog, from 2008-2012. Just adding that in for more comprehension on the part of the reader or readers.

Hucka D.:

You will have a 3rd blog. Then you will be a Whitehead in Da Woods.

bb:

Retired.

Hucka D.:

Yes. You will be surprised. I can’t say stuff.

bb:

Go on.

Hucka D.:

The small cottage to the far left of Collage 03 is currently positioned on a rock in Harrisonia, on the same creek that contains this cascade here but further upstream. About a mile upstream I’m estimating. The stream itself is named Harrison… George Harrison. George Harrison Creek in full. It’s source comes from Herman Park. The source is protected. Harrisonia is not protected. These cascades are *not* protected.

bb:

No. Not at all.

Hucka D.:

The cottage on the rocks here is also the cottage you will build in Red Head when you become a Whitehead.

bb:

I see.

Hucka D.:

And then to complete the description of the diptych we have Quilt Rock, also painted by the Celina woman artist, like she painted the similar quilt-like pants of the waving Easter bunny on the opposite side[ of the diptych]. These 2 are suppose to be associated. Tiny Superman poses in front of each. Do you know why?

bb (admitting):

I don’t know why.

Hucka D.:

He *lives* in the cottage. That’s a hint.

bb:

Still: nothing.

Hucka D.:

It’s *you*. You are Superman. And Aquaman. You are both. Skies and seas. Yin and yang. Get it?

bb:

A little.

Hucka D.:

Who is Drink?

You have a Celina, Ohio woman, an artist prim and proper, inserting an eye into a yin/yang spherical symbol called the Taijitu. The iris of the eye is yellow. It is suppose to be a fish eye. [One of] the 4 Residents from the other side of the diptych has a yellow eye as well. He looks down [at Drink], while the other Residents look across[ or toward]. The yellow eye in the Taijitu looks up as opposed to down. This is the same eye.

The general setting for both collages is a cascade area just behind your present house in Blue Mountain. This is the first time in a collage of yours that you’ve included a location so close to your home. Yet you haven’t been down there in years, have you?

“Hucka D., this is how you started the interpretation of Collage 02/03 of the new series, in the last post on this here Baker Bloch Blog.”

collage02test02ah

Hucka D.:

Frank and Herman, Einstein! blog yes. As we spoke a bit beforehand, you want me to help you fill in the details more. The Taijitu in the collage[s] stands for the area around your house. Tomorrow, as I understand, you are going to *work* on said house. You really are this time.

bb:

Yes. Might paint the back porch a little later on this week. Fix the gutter system. Can’t keep playing in the woods every single clear day. But there are a bunch of them just ahead. Good time to get some actual work done here.

Hucka D.:

I would recommend. So back to the collage[s], we have the Taijitu symbol as a 3/d sphere. This is the area around your house, a mythology you came up with shortly after moving in. It consists of the Endosphere — black side — and Exosphere — white. As you described in a recent post LINK, this mythology has degenerated into basic nothingness. It is no more.

bb:

No unfortunately. Neighborhood degeneration as I called it in that post. A sad state. We really liked this house [and neighborhood] when we moved in — almost 20 years ago now. Now it’s just filled to the brim with students. It is a student neighborhood now, at least on this side. 20 years ago this wasn’t the case.

Hucka D.:

Well, that symbol applies to the house. Now what is the Celina woman doing with that eye? She is *fixing* Big Bob, that’s what. As you should fix your house. She’s a doer; you’re a don’ter.

bb (smiling):

That is probably true.

—–

Hucka D.:

But the house is also a shed, like you wanted to build in the Endosphere woods in back of your house. 2 fer 1. And this dichotomy is still in place. You want or need a house. You also desire a shed built from scratch, or relatively so. Like Sam Parr Artist had in her English garden.

samparr10test02a

bb:

True. It could be an artist studio.

Hucka D.:

Or perhaps like one even this Celina woman has. She is similar to Sam Parr[ after all].

—–

bb:

Hucka D., as I’m looking at Collage 02/03 as a whole now, I believe the yellow eye the Celina woman is inserting into the Taijitu represents the shed more than the house, and an artist’s studio more than actually dye in the wool living quarters. There’s a shed in Collage 03, one on George Harrison Branch but upstream from the cascade in the picture by about a mile. This is what I now desire to build in Red Head. And we have a Red Head in the collage as well — the mashup of Anne Shirley and Dorothy Gale near the top center.

Hucka D.:

That is Red Head itself [in Frank Park]. Aquaman.

bb:

I don’t know what that means.

Hucka D.:

Red Head is where it all goes down. Green Stream (stream that cascades through Red Head) is your Appalachian Spring. 4orrin1 tells a lot about Red Head. And visa versa.

For Red Head to succeed it must be both Superman and Aquaman. Original and inverted in one. Wilson-Wheeler if you will. Prior must become present and visa versa. Either or.

bb:

I still don’t understand.

Hucka D.:

The cascades in the collage[s] are as much the Red Head cascades as the ones behind your house now. After all, the Exosphere, the intra-hiking area, is a dead zone, and of no use to you any longer. Everything has shifted to Red Head now, including the dream of building a woodsy shed like you originally envisioned above the cascades of George Harrison Branch — and a shed that is still present at Harrisonia, albeit not of your own design. But you can use it as a model, certainly. And that is why it’s there. How do all these sheds or potential sheds interconnect — blend into each other? That is the question you are actually asking.

bb:

Okay.

Hucka D.:

Someone like Superman had to build the one at Harrisonia, because it was built in the *middle of rhododendron*. It was exactly like someone flew it in from above. You still don’t know how that thing got there.

bb:

No. I don’t.

Hucka D.:

*You* put it there.

bb:

You mean I communicated to someone who put it there. On a mental plane.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb (looking at collage again):

So that would explain the conjunction of that Harrisonia shed and Superman in [Collage 03]. Quilt Rock is beside it, and that was painted by the Celina artist woman once more.

collage02ac01c

Hucka D.:

All of these desires[ for a woodsy shed] must coalesce somehow. You draw strength from it. That can help with your present house situation as well.

collage05test07

Interpretation:

Base scene is the exact middle of The Shining movie, as defined by The Shining Forwards and Backwards audiovisual experiment talked more about here LINK. We have Rainbow Man Scatman Cruthers (chef Dick Hallorann in the movie) laying in his bed, encompassed by the colours of TILE: red, green, blue, yellow. I display the picture first here in this blog, which is now part of the “6 Weeks of Shining” hybrid document. Week 2 to be specific. The presence of TILE here inspired me to put a blend of primary hued lights behind his bed, highlighting a red painting above his bed in particular. This picture originally depicted a nude African-American woman, but now contains the nerdy Moss from the Brit hit TV show “The IT Crowd.” He warns new-ish boss Jen about passing through the red door into a secret room not known about before by her. “What’s Behind the Red Door?” is also the largest Kollage Kid collage currently exhibited in Collagesity (World of Collage gallery), formerly seen in the X-Spot Gallery. Hallorann, also an African-American, has intense white eyes. This is actually representative of the blend of primary light colours into white, the source of all.

This also stands for Whitehead Crossing as a blend of red (Red Head), green (Greenhead), and blue (Blue Skies Mr.). It is also a center… of my woodsy experiences in these here parts. It is the center of Frank and Herman Parks (most likely).

Whiteyes also stands for “Whitey” (1st 6 letters), which *Redd* Foxx occasionally called caucasians on his influential 70s hit comedy show “Sanford and Son”, always getting a laugh in the process. We’ve already seen several images of Mr. Foxx in the Sam Parr collage series from the past fall, namely collages 06/07 and collage 08. The characters of Whiteyes are also all African-Americans, including The IT Crowd character Moss.

“So what does it mean Hucka D.?”

Hucka D.:

This is center with a capital “C”.

bb:

A miniature Bugs Bunny lays on the bed beside Hallorann, his famous byline not traveling with him from earlier collages in the series. This would of course be “What’s Up Doc?”, now the name of an important album by the variant band Story Room, who are kind of The Residents. Don’t you think?

Hucka D.:

Obviously!

bb:

“What’s Up Doc?” is the primary source album of the audiovisual synch Carrcass-10, the next to last I’ve created. Going on 2 years back now, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Better put up the link.

bb:

This is also found in Week 2 of “6 Weeks of Shining”.

Hucka D.:

Good to know.

bb:

So obviously Bugs Bunny here represents that variant album, Hucka D., just like he did in the earlier collage 02/03 of the new series. What’s the name of this series, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

We do not have a name. We’ll have to call it Bob in the meantime.

bb:

This is the a/v synch I was talking to Chuck about while we walked the loop now called the Bunny Trail, in its honor. We merged through this loop, and then separated, I with my own past/present/future compositions and he with his own set. We were united through the synchronicity, that and others. But, at the end, Carrcass-10. He knows now.

Hucka D.:

Nose.

bb:

Yeah.

Hucka D.:

Well… what’s behind the red door anyways?

bb:

Red Head of course.

Hucka D.:

But what exactly is Red Head? We know that it is Anne Shirley with an “e”, before and after she briefly turned Greenhead in the Green Gables story. Right before she was accepted into that house by Marilla The Elder. Greenhead transferred to Green House. She had a roof over her head for the first time. Poor little orphan Anne.

bb:

Yes, it is Anne Shirley, as especially depicted in the postive carrcass: Carrcass+6 I believe I number it.

Hucka D.:

That’s all about Appalachian Spring. Green Stream( that runs through Red Head) is also an Appalachian Spring. Moreso even than TILE Creek, perhaps.

bb:

Maybe.

Hucka D.:

Even more than George Harrison Creek that runs behind your current house.

bb:

Okay.

Hucka D.:

So that’s one thing behind the Red Door. Obviously Red Head, the formerly unknown part of Whitehead Crossing until this spring, is behind this Red Door. Moss guards the door in the collage, just like Mossmen protected Red Head from incursions. How chancy is that?

bb:

Probably not very much so, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

No. This is pre-cabin. You better get to an interpretation of the animation before this tonight. Start it anyhoot.

bb:

Thanks.

Animation?

—–

“So Hucka D., here we are at Collage 04, an animation apparently. This was created just before I sprained my wrist falling off a truck tailgate at work and had to take a week break from collaging. Now I’m back.”

Hucka D.:

You’re beautiful. Beautifully healing, I mean. Don’t listen to that healer. You are doing swell. You are not swelling. You are well. Weller. Let’s get to the analysis. We’ll get back to healers soon enough.

bb:

In Collage 06, yes. Well… here we have a scene from Second Life as a backdrop. This, I believe, is the famous or infamous *Rabbit Hole* connecting the continents of Jeogeot and Maebaleia, perhaps the 2 largest of the Second Life mainland continents, which number perhaps 10 or 11 now. The Rabbit Hole is one of the oddest things I found in my Second Life explorations. I talk about it originally here on the [Baker Blinker Blog] LINK.

—–

Hucka D.:

Well, let’s get to what’s behind the hole in the collage. We have, from left to right, Blue Skies Mr., who in the second part of the animation turns into Dr. Who’s Elton, not to be confused with *that* Elton.

rectangle

bb:

Of course not (smiles).

Hucka D.:

Blue Skies Mr. rearranged spells Mr. Blue Skies, a song by Electric Light Orchestra and a song championed by The Who’s Elton. Don’t you think Pinball Wizard covered by the other Elton could represent another link? I think so.

bb:

Could be.

Hucka D.:

This is… you go…

bb:

Alright. This is from the episode Love and Monsters, the 10th episode of Season 2 of the newest Dr. Who series. This was during the David Tennant run. The character’s full name is Elton Pope.

Hucka D.:

Elton’s companion and future lover, at least as a cement *tile*, is Ursula.

after

The relationship between Ursula, Elton and *Doctor* Who is apparently coded into GNIRPS, in the source state of Arkansas…

uruslaarkansas

Actually, in checking I see I’ve already mentioned this here, but without the above, accompanying map to explain. There it is correctly connected to the character Doctor Fork of Billfork, coming from a [delete name] audio source. At the same time in Billfork that this character is mentioned (he will arrive shortly on the confusing scene with either an antidote or an anecdote (!)), James Woods of Northfork lowers the visor of the car to reveal a row of fishing lures, but which also look like *cutlery*, or at least spoons. Obvious connection to *Fork*, however.

Quote from that old blog post:

Only 1 Ursula in US, in Sebastian Co, AR (Ursula is name of waitress in tile 10). Already been connected to Ursula in Carrcass-8 through Doctor’s Creek just to its north.

But… Doctor’s Creek tributary above Ursula is called Doctor’s Fork, and a “Doctor Fork” is mentioned in Billf. (who will arrive soon with the antidote, or is it anecdote?). Doctor Fork is mentioned just as we see fishing lure behind sun visor in car (tile __). Also this looks like spoons, another utensil like forks. Fishing lure assoc. with Doctor Fork as creek or stream, perhaps. Doctor Fork may also then be assoc. with Dr. Who through Ursula. Of course Dr. Fork from audio is a link to North*fork* movie on the video side, akin to Bottom Feedlers (or Fiedlers) and Ursula’s mention of bottom feeders.

028509_28
Ursula

So this connects 2 of your synchronicities together, or Carrcass+8 and Carrcass-8. That’s “plus 8” and “minus 8” for the reading audience. Same number but positive and negative. Years and years apart.

bb:

9 years.

Hucka D.:

James Woods is looking at a picture of his deceased wife among the fishing lures. The Bill say antidote and anecdote together, fusing the 2 different but similarly pronounced words. Are they the same (as well)?

(continued in)


(continued from)

Hucka D.:

Pope and Kennedy are found together in New York. That’s the last 2 names of the main protagonist and antagonist of “Love and Monsters”.

bb:

Elton and Victor being the first names, yet.

Hucka D.:

Of course Kennedy is going to bring in a lot of resonance with John F. Kennedy, your assassinated president. (pause) Then finally Victor appears in Pope County, Arkansas. (checking) Along with Gabriel and Solo pointing to Peter Gabriel’s solo career and perhaps “Solsbery Hill” in particular. Gabriel is very close to Victor. Is it still a population place? Lettuce check. (checks) It appears not, but it’s listed as a historical population center in GNIRPS.

bb:

Gabriel’s successful solo career allowed him to become a Sunklands variant, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

However fascinating this is, we must move away from it and back to Collage 04 in its two animated aspects…

collage04test07

collage04test07d

We’ve dealt with Blue Skies Mr. and Elton Pope who adores his anagram of “Mr. Blue Skies”, the hit Electric Light Orchestra single. In fact, he loves the band period. ELO.

Blue Skies Mr.: a figure Baker Bloch and The King saw at Temple Farm.

bb:

We’re not moving very far away from Blue Skies Mr. Let’s tackle Greenhead. Wait.. let’s look at the central couple of the 1st part, or Sophie and Howl from Howl’s Moving Castle. This would be from a still at the very end of the movie, where they are happily reunited, seemingly for good. Sophie has cool, white hair — a Whitehead. Howl’s is a beautiful raven black in contrast, but originally he hated this color. Anne Shirley in contrast strongly *desired* this color of hair, wanting to change from her natural “carrot coloured” red hair. Howl’s hair also changed to red, to his disgust, after Sophie rearranged the potions in his bathroom. It quickly turned black, however. *Both* were very upset at hair colours, Hucka D. And this is coded into, let’s see Carrcass+5 and Carrcass+6. I love counting those off.

Hucka D.:

Then Greenhead — Anne Shirley with temporary green hair — appears behind a Second Life green terrain just in both parts of the animation. This is Greenhead, a peak and a head at the same time. We take a peek. This would be where I’m from — my people: Greenhead (in Greater Whitehead Crossing).

bb:

Cool, Hucka D. But were you a *bee* there? Or a bird?

Hucka D.:

I ain’t telling yet (!).

bb:

Nice. Then in the middle, The IT Crowd’s Moss shows up again in Part 2, replacing Sophie and Howl. He’s defending the red door, once more, as he did in the episode “Red Door”, the 4th of Season One. Both he and Roy tell boss Jen to stay away from the Red Door. Goth Richard Avenal is behind the door. He lives there in a hidden room. This is you…

Hucka D.:

This is you in the further. Future, I meant. Mean. Kind of. It’s you and not you at once. You are Richmond, true. You will live/not live behind the Red Door. This is Red Head, of course, and the cabin. Cabin in Disguise.

bb:

You can tell me about this cabin now. I meant — mean — Can you tell me about this cabin now?

Hucka D. (flatly):

No.

(continued in)

(continued from)

“But what of the fused Baker Blinker and Baker Bloch at the bottom of the animation (Collage 04)? Baker Bloch wears Baker Blinkers old white dress, like a wedding. They are wedded here indeed. In Collage 02/03, they were separated on opposite parts of the overall diptych. Here they are united — fused. This is the hierogamy, yes. Sacred marriage of alchemy between Goddess Moon and God Sun. This is your Baker Blinker and Baker Bloch together. What do they (jointly) see? They see Blue Skies Mr., they see Red Head, guarded by Moss at the Red Door, they see Greenhead — Anne Shirley in temporary agony. They see the primary colours revealed: red, green, blue. Combined they make white. And that is the subject of the next collage (“Whiteyes”). Are we ready?”

bb:

What of the Neptune symbol projecting up from the joined bodies, Hucka D.? I’m assuming this has something to do with Frank and Herman Park’s Wild Wild West, where Gene Fade’s ancestors — his *priors* — came from. Neptune is the 1st totally unseen planet. Actually, the only totally unseeable planet to the naked eyes. Whiteyes have to be telescopic in order to view.

Hucka D.:

Neptune is the Wild West West, the thing unknown and perhaps unknowable now. You will never get down there in full. You can’t risk getting hurt, as you know better now. The Wild Wild West is for a younger you.

bb:

But I can still go down there.

Hucka D.:

Ehh,

bb:

We better move to Collage 05: “Whiteyes”.

Hucka D.:

[Actually] we’ve already covered it LINK.

bb:

Oh… alright, then let’s go to Collage 06. This one is also a 2-part animation, like “Rabbit Hole”. And it’s called “Beware (The) Heelers”. Breaking it down, the first part is called “Beware The Heelers”, and the second part is called just “Beware Heelers”. What I’m taking this as is the first part warns of the Heelers, while the second part warns the *Heelers*.

Hucka D.:

Yes, that would be correct. This is obviously about your wrist you just sprained from a Fall. Past corrects Present.

bb:

Hmm. Here are the 2 parts.

wheelers16

wheelers15

Hucka D.:

Part 1 is the Fall itself. Dorothy takes a tumble down stairs. Her hand is attached to the wheels of the Wheeler. Will her hand be sacrificed and have to be replaced? And so on. Mombi or Nurse Wilson is there. She is the one who imprisoned Ozma into the Mirror World. Ozma is then freed in part 2 of this animation. That’s the gist of it. Vice President William Wheeler under R. Booger Hayes is the top of the Oz Wheeler now. Wilson and Wheeler together here represent a mixed up time statum. The past affects the present, and the present affects the past.

bb:

I broke this same wrist when I was about 11 years old, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Loop.

bb:

It’s a pretty bad sprain, it seems, but I didn’t break it this time. Did the past block the present?

Hucka D.:

The past absorbed some of the brunt of the present. The past was worser than it should have been. The present is a bit better than it should have been. You should have broken your wrist.

bb:

But the Heelers I visited — Healers — stated that it wasn’t broken. They could be wrong.

Hucka D.:

No. You took a fall[ like Dorothy].

bb:

So my hands won’t be mismatched like the Wheeler on the far right of the collage — he’s the same in both.

Hucka D.:

No. They are black and white, true — opposites — but they are equal opposites. Good that you had to use your left hand for actions for a while.

bb:

They need to be more equal.

Hucka D.:

That could be so.

bb:

My hands won’t be a functionless as my feet.

Hucka D.:

No (laughs).

bb:

But now the deeper stuff.

Hucka D.:

Okay. Do you want to go?

bb:

I’ll give it a stab. The two hand-feet of Wheeler on the right side are the 2 sides of the audiovisual synchronicity Head Trip. The exact same type of shoe was found to be worn by Nurse Wilson in Return to Oz. I should say that the overall background is a still from this movie. It originally said “Beware The Wheelers”, which are a mythological Oz creature whose hands and feet have been replaced by wheels. Their introductory scene in the movie is brilliantly dubbed by Queen’s “I’m in Love With My Car”. Like a person gains wheels so that he or she can become more like a car.

Hucka D.:

You are doing swell. Continue…

bb:

The Wheelers are obviously aberrant creatures.

Hucka D.:

Not necessarily. You are not doing swell now. (smiles)

bb:

Okay. Well, I guess we can just generally say that part 1 of Collage 06 is the negative aspect of the fall, mirroring the immediate hours and days after my own fall which resulted in a wrist injury. Then part 2 is the positive half of the fall. Ozma redeems.

Hucka D.:

Yes she does. She *covers* the Fall with the vast reach of her pure white dress. She is the true and proper ruler of Oz, not Dorothy and not Mombi. So there is no trace of either of the latter two women-folk in part 2. Ozma rules all.

bb:

Thanks. Then we have the blue eyeballed Resident appearing again in part 2, just as he showed up in Collage 03 with his red, green and yellow eyed partners. I wonder if this is Chuck?

Hucka D.:

No. But he represents illumination. He and Ozma are fused as well.

bb:

And then the Great Black Swamp map that has appeared and covered up the word “The” of “Beware The (W)Heelers).

Hucka D.:

What about it?

bb:

Well what is it?

Hucka D.:

It’s an old swamp. Doesn’t exist any longer. TILE covered it up. Or drained it I suppose. You knew that.

bb:

Yes, I did. So the Great Black Swamp is what I call The Abyss in this new-ish post I created about rainbowology LINK. TILE emerges from the swamp. A tile industry grew around the Great Black Swamp — drainage tiles. That’s how they got rid of it. Through tiles. TILE.

Hucka D.:

That’s where Mombi and her black thoughts were put. In The Abyss. That’s the true Fall. That’s what you escaped. Now you have Rainbowology in its plcae. TILE; Rainbowology.

bb:

Cool. Are we finished with Collage 06 already?

Hucka D.:

Gump is a Mashup.

bb:

So we’re just going to go ahead and move forward into an analysis of Collage 07, completed just yesterday and then polished up this morning. I’m trying to keep up with analysis this time, unlike with the last series from the first of this year (Embarras). And I’m doing it a bit different from the completed analysis of the Sam Parr series from last Fall, Hucka D., in that I seem to be interpreting as I go along this time, instead of waiting until the series is over.

Hucka D.:

Good to switch up. So here we’re in Midgetville. The collage, a 4 part animation it appears, is called “Midgetville” [itself]. And the base photo comes from a location called just that in New Jersey. Here’s a link LINK.

http://weirdnj.com/tag/midgetville/

bb:

And that’s the source of the photo I used in my “Midgetville”. And I’ve used another of those photos in an Embarras series collage, to go back to that [soon enough]. That one was called “Fathers”, I believe. (checks) Yes.

Snapshot2011_001

Back to the Midgetville article:

In 1913 circus mogul Alfred T. Ringling purchased nearly 1000 acres of land in this section of Jefferson Township (then known as Petersburg) on which to build an estate and winter home for his performers (many of whom were little people) and his animals. Nestled between the Green Pond and Bowling Green Mountains, the estate proper consisted of 100 acres, with a stately 26-room stone mansion overlooking the grounds, barns and cobblestone elephant houses.

Ringling-Manor

Today Ringling Manor is the St. Stanislaus Friary, a monastery for the Capuchin Fathers. When Weird NJ went in search of the Jefferson Midgetville we stopped in to ask the fathers [my eph] if they could give us any information which might shed some light on the fabled land we sought. Though the friars were gracious enough to give us a tour or the old mansion, they said they knew nothing of any midget colonies located nearby.

Is it merely a coincidence that a cluster of extremely small cottages is located so close to the estate where a circus that employed many little people performers once wintered? Or is it possible that Alfred T. Ringling had these homes custom built to make his tinier attractions more comfortable?

But now, Hucka D., we know another little person who came to this general area, this time an actor in the movie “The Station Agent”. This is Fin McBride, who inherited a tiny train station in Newfoundland, just north of Green Pond (as the Ringling Bros. mansion is to its west).

the-station-agent

Here are he and his *newfound* friends at the woman’s house actually on the shores of Green Pond[ while I have it located].

station30

They are rocking to “Yellow Submarine”, which was similarly destined to reach and then exist in the mythical Sea of Green of the song. A happy ending. The flip side, Eleanor Rigby, is the negative beginning, in contrast. Like…

Hucka D.:

… Like the 2 parts of “Beware…”, negative and then positive. Good.

“Just that close, Hucka D. The Ringling Bros. mansion and Newfoundland are only a couple of miles apart. Green Pond unites. Wee person Fin McBride was just a small 500 meter hike perhaps from the Midgetville we’ve been discussing when sitting with his friends at the house on this pond.”

And our friends are all on board
Many more of them live next door

But we must return to Collage 07. (pause) Hucka must have gone back to bed. So let me put up the first and last animation in the 4 part collage and I’ll just go from there.

collage07test04a

Sam Parr Model makes a return visit to the Red Umbrella collages, here in her lean-y version as seen in Sam Parr 08. There she had the head of a fox — Redd Foxx to be more precise.

samparr08real06

Her dark “gun”, which I assume is some sort of scarf, is there [intwined in] an outline of Sam Parr Lake in Sam Parr State Park of Jasper County, Illinois. But in the new collage she is unmasked for who she is. I am not frightened.

—–

[10 minute pause to collect wits]

In the new collage, her head lies between 2 eyes from the same person, but from different time periods. This would be Winona Ryder. The right eye is from a 1991 Rolling Stone magazine cover with red headlines. The left eye is from a 1994 Rolling Stone cover with blue headlines. We do not yet know what is behind the head of Sam Parr here. But it has already been pictured on “Fathers” from the Embarras series: it’s a joined or third eye, created by overlapping the left eye of the 1991 cover with the right eye of the 1994 cover. This is synchronicity in itself. In “Fathers,” strolling Sherwood Anderson to the left, one of the “fathers” of the collage, wears this 3rd eye as a mask or a cover. Now we can say that this foreshadows the current collage, which is just as or probably more important in ways. And the same Midgetville house appears in the new collage, transferred from “Fathers” as well. And the 7 stone rock stacking also is transferred, along with the blue and red surrounding robots… and also Baker Bloch who stands apart, taking it all in. And Peter Gabriel appearing in the left window of the animation also has a source of sorts in “Fathers” through the row of presidents extending from Lincoln’s head down to the Midgetville house there. They all wear similar suits to Gabriel’s. He is All Presidents, Hucka D. might say here.

Now part of her is still covered up in the new collage. But it’s her legs and feet instead of her head. They are obscured by a crowd of hooded people who represent Little Whitehead — the negative aspect. They seem to be staring…

Baker B. appears in front of the group, waving. This is also a transposition from “Fathers”, where we still have the body of Baker B. but the head of Abraham Lincoln. Another Father in the picture like Sherwood Anderson. Like Homer Simpson in the background leaning against a house.

Snapshot2011_001

Kink Ray Davies appears to the left, opposite Baker B. and the Little Whitehead hooded group. Above him, in the window, appears Peter Gabriel, head down.

In the second part of the animation…

collage07test04b

… Baker B. has move to the left side as he apparently continues to stroll across the front of the picture. He obscures Ray Davies now. Peter Gabriel, head down still, appears above. In the midst of the Little Whitehead group now extends that 7 stone stacking we mentioned before, with red and blue accompanying robots. Baker Bloch stands at the black shoed heel of Sam Parr Model. This is the Achilles heel reference again LINK. Heal and Heel should be associated.

In the 3rd part of Collage 07…

collage07test04c

… we have the appearance of Winnie the Pooh holding his red umbrella to the right. I assume this is Baker B. again, having walked from the left side of the picture back to the right side. An educated guess. He stares down at a red and blue body we’ve also seen before in my collages. And the Little Whitehead group has disappeared now. We can also assume this reclining red and blue figure is the same as the group, with the link being the red and blue robots and the rock stacking between them. The red and blue figure is also created by the art group Little Whitehead. The group or gang have become one. Gang of Willard?

We can also say that the body has been “prepared”.

We have seen both Little Whitehead creations before in a Falmouth Collage called (checks) “Rescue Ship.”

collage83base04
“Rescue Ship”

We also have the same body in the more recent “Future Home” diptych, the collage created just prior to “Fathers”, actually. There the body seems to represent death itself, perhaps my own death in the future, when we move to Middletown and away from Blue Mountain. Or is it just the death of my existence in Blue Mountain? Anyway, that’s the past of the red-blue body. And Winnie the Pooh and his red umbrella actually lends itself to the name of the encompassing gallery, The Red Umbrella, that contains most of the collages we’ve been discussing minus one or two from the Falmouth collection. So let’s just move to the final part of Collage 07…

collage07test04d

Here the 3rd eye of 1991/1994 Winona Ryder is exposed, as Sam Parr Model disappears from the picture. Or does she? Could she be the same as Dorothy, in her own white dress, that now hovers above and also obscured the red-blue body? And what of Winnie the Pooh, who has also disappeared along with his red umbrella? I think he has gone into the body (?).

In short, this is probably another Hierogamy moment, like with the earlier fusion of Baker Bloch and Baker Blinker in Collage 04. Peter Gabriel’s head is now up, and he’s staring directly at us. What does he know? Is his third eye opened? Ray Davies now appears on the other side of the small house’s front, looking toward Gabriel instead of being directly under him. Is this a point of objectivity now?

We perhaps have more questions than answers concerning this one. We better move to Collage 08. Stayed tuned!

(continued from)

“Apparently I’m going to create a tetraptych composed of what I’m numbering as Collage 08, 09, 10, and 11 of the new series. This series is still without a name. Is it “merely” a continuation of the Embarras series on the floor below, cobbled together earlier this year? Sam Parr (the series before the last one) might represent the final “traditional” collage series based around images gathered from a particular Jasper County geographic name. I’m confused.”

Hucka D.:

Just start — or continue — analyzing the collages and let the other pieces fall naturally into place as they may. Let’s continue then with “Animation Nation.” Sorry… this is “Animation Station”. The center is the tiny Newfoundland railroad station that Finnbar McBride inherited to begin the Station Agent film. He is a wee person, and he is seen standing next to the door of the station in the second part of the animation. In the first part he is absent. Most of this animation makes simple sense, except for the human characters, which number 4 5. The rest are animation characters. They make a direct animation with themselves. Let’s list them out. Do you want to give it a shot?

collage08atest26

bb:

Sure. There’s Shake and Boxy Brown from Aqua Teen Hunger Force in the foreground. They’re on opposite sides of that rain puddle. A man with undefined face puts his hand directly in the middle of Boxy Brown’s hair. We know that this is the opposition of black and white across the puddle. You say it…

Hucka D.:

Taijitu.

bb:

Hmmm. Anyway. Let’s see. Then just sticking with Aqua Teen Hunger Force characters, we have an animated Insanoflex from the movie “Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters”. What a title! Boxy Brown also makes a cameo in that film. And both, along with Shake of course — a main Aqua Teen characters as opposed to the other 2 who are more role players — appear in carrcasses. Or one carrcass, and that would be Carrcass-0. Carrcasses, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Yes, this is about those pesky carrcasses in part. Hard to keep their influence out of collages for long. So go ahead…

bb:

The Insanoflex is dancing atop the truck, just to clarify. His head is in the sky — transparent. All of these cartoon characters have a common source in the “Space Ghost Coast to Coast” series, Hucka D. Space Ghost and direct cohorts are sitting in a central table of [Collage 08]. Brak dances right center. He is a role player in Space Ghost Coast to Coast, but becomes the star in the spinoff “The Brak Show”, and takes Space Ghost’s Zorak with him. Likewise, “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” has its origins in Space Ghost — another spinoff show as it were.

Hucka D.:

As it is. Had to add that.

bb:

And then that leaves only Fitz the mouse from “12 Oz Mouse”. It’s kind of the successor to Aqua Teen, in turn, but only through the carrcasses in main. That is, Carrcass-1 is centered around 12 Oz Mouse, while the former carrcass was based around the Aqua Teen movie. So that’s Aqua Teen and The Brak Show spinning off from Space Ghost Coast to Coast, and the 12 Oz Mouse kind of spinning off from Aqua Teen I suppose.

Hucka D.:

Correct. [He is the] culmination.

bb:

12 Oz Mouse is closer to my sensibilities than any of it, but the late Space Ghost episodes come somewhat close. Kind of like the late Beethoven quartets. Masterpieces.

Hucka D.:

Not quite. But: yeah.

collage08btest25

bb:

So here are all those same cartoon characters in the second part of the Collage 08 animation, Hucka D. All make simple animations with their counterparts in part 1. Shake’s mouth opens and closes. Boxy Brown nods forward and then backwards. Brak dances in place. The Insanoflex on top of the truck moves its legs back and forth in a strutting motion. Then the central table with the Space Ghost characters has a mysterious guest appear on it in part 1, actually. This is Edward Swift, the Southern writer we’ve seen in a number of other Collagesity collages. The one who spent his childhood in Camp Ruby, Texas and later treated those times as a kind of Eden. He also stands for the Second Life sim Rubi and its own paradisiacal forest. Lucky is a bridge: Camp Ruby was once called Lucky, and a Lucky’s Magic Village was found in Rubi’s VWX Town, later to become part of the town’s museum. And it’s still found in Collagesity’s museum. I didn’t make up the name, however. That was just the name of the object that I found in [insert sim location] a couple of years back, I suppose — copyable. But that’s the guy that magically appears on the table. Hmmm… Lucky’s Magic Village is now on a table in the aforementioned museum… (checks) Well, actually as I’m checking inworld through Baker Bloch now, the village sits on the ground to make room for the historic map of VWX Town above it.

Hucka D.:

You are writing swell this morning. You have covered all the cartoon characters of the Collage 08. All have source in Space Ghost. Baker Bloch’s father is actually elder Space Ghost. Baker Bloch is Space Ghost’s spinoff as well.

bb:

I suppose so, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Baker Blinker is also possessed by Master Shake of Aqua Teen Hunger Force pictured in the foreground. Is the curse still affected?

bb:

I don’t think so. The spell was broken with the creation of Carrcass-1 beyond Carrcass-0. 12 Oz Mouse took the upper hand over Aqua Teen Hunger Force then. 12 Oz Mouse is the chief cartoon now.

Hucka D.:

Nice. What does he do in the animation.

bb:

What he always does: drink.

fitz01

(continued in)


(continued from)

bb:

So now we come to the human elements of the Collage 08 animation. We’ve already mentioned Edward Swift sprawled out on the table that the Space Ghost characters sit around. He does not have a counterpart in the second part of the animation. Then also in animation 01 we have Moss from The IT Crowd again, who has already made an appearance in the new series in collages 04 and 05. He guards the Red Door; waves off possible trespassers[ in those collages]. However in this collage he seems to be *trapped* behind the red door of the Newfoundland station. Thoughts, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

He is trapped in the station. Like you will be trapped in the Red Head cabin in a probable future spinoff.

bb:

Then in animation 02 we have a shirtless Peter Gabriel as the Rael character from the fabulous concept album “The Lamb Lies Down on Broadway” by his old group Genesis. He stares toward the station, but Moss is no longer there behind the door, which has been shut in the meantime. Instead Fin McBride has showed up at the station, luggage in hand. The luggage bag he holds is the same color as Moltar in front of him, sitting with Space Ghost and Zorak at the table that Edward Swift has disappeared from in the meantime. This disappearance *reveals* more of Moltar’s color and identification with this piece of luggage.

moltar01

—–

“A constant — actually there are 2 constants in the collage in terms of added elements. We already mentioned that the blurry faced man appearing in the foreground does not change between the 2 animations. Then in the background we have Walter and Lao Russell’s Swannanoa Mansion near Waynesboro, Virginia remaining unchanged between the two halves of Collage 08. The huge looming nature of the mansion contrasts the smallness of the Newfoundland station below it. In the future, Hucka D., we will probably live in Swannanoa.”

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

It is our future home. Like as depicted in, well, the collage “Future Home” from the last collage series.

Hucka D.:

You will live in Swanteen, yes.

bb:

Or Otanoa.

Hucka D.:

Either one. Or both. Or none.

bb:

Future up in the air, still. Like the Swannanoa Mansion is way up the mountain here, in the distance. Seeable and viewable but still quite far off. A considerable trek still.

Hucka D.:

How do the humans relate? Is Peter Gabriel the same as Moss[ between the 2 animations]? Is Edward Swift the same as Fin? Both the latters’ heads are conveniently framed[ by other picture elements] at the top. Fin even seems to sprout 2 tiny horns through the light shining on the station behind him. Fin has just arrived, and looks out at all the seeming cartoon chaos spread out in front of him. He looks at the shirtless Peter Gabriel who is Rael, wondering who the heck this is as well. And we’ve seen him before…

bb:

You mean the last collage of the Sam Parr series. Also an animation.

Hucka D.:

And then the beer bottles there too. You better put up a pic.

bb:

On it.

samparr11test04i

This is the first part of the 2 part animation of Sam Parr 10, Hucka D. Peter Gabriel-as-Rael looks on at a scene again. A tiny house or studio or station again. A man is inside again, like Moss in the current work. Trapped? And then Ray Davies appears beside him, or just behind him actually. They gaze together. Ray Davies has just showed up in a new collage, the 4 part animation I’ve named “Midgetville”. Actually this is the collage immediately before the current one (Collage 07 to Collage 08). And then, as you’ve alluded to, we have the same beer bottles from before, and indicating the passage of time. Actually in looking at this, the picture above *would* be part 2 of the 2 part animation of Sam Parr 10, since all those beers have been drunk already. This is the same situation as part 2 of the current collage.

fitz01

Hucka D.:

There’s that mouse again. *The* Mouse.

bb:

So here’s part 1 of Sam Parr 10[ then].

samparr10test04i

And we also have Edward Swift sitting at (but not sprawling on) a table. But we have no equivalent for the propped up “E” of Sam Parr 10. Nor the humanized red fox. But that’s Peter Gabriel again, dressed up like a character from the Foxtrot album. That Rael from “Lamb Lies Down on Broadway” would show up in part 2 again represents a passage of time, since the Foxtrot album was released a little before the Lamb album. But is the fox Moss? I suppose this is a segue to Collage 09 of the new series, Hucka D., since Redd Foxx appears in that one, and also we have additional images from “Midgetville” to analyze there. Are we done with this one for now?

Hucka D.:

The blurred out man in the foreground is probably homeless. The man who lives in the mansion in the background has one of the finest homes possible. That’s another opposition. Thank you and good night.

(continued in)


(continued from)

So here we go. I’m as ready as I’ll probably ever be. And Hucka D., I’m assuming, is going to help. It’s in his job description[ after all]. I call this one “Darth Redder”. It’s a two part animation, like all 4 collages making up the Collage 8, 9, 10, 11 tetraptych. Should it have an overall name? Anyway, I’ve already given an interpretation of Collage 08 (“Animation Station”) here and also here.

collage09test95b
“Darth Redder, Part 1”

What are we looking at here? We’re seeing the image of Redd Foxx playing Fred Sanford doing his famous heart attack routine already mentioned a couple of times recently in this blog. To remind everyone of the story — and the cruel, ironic twist about it — check here:

http://www.wikilou.com/1.20.0/index.php?title=Redd_Foxx

Foxx appeared to be making a comeback with the 1991 series The Royal Family, in which he co-starred with his long-time friend Della Reese. During a break from rehearsals on October 11, 1991, a fatal heart attack felled him on the set. Reportedly, Reese and the rest of the cast and crew thought he was doing his classic (and in this case, ironic) “I’m coming, Elizabeth” fake heart attack routine he made famous on Sanford And Son, even going as far as collapsing to the floor, although that was not part of the usual schtick. However, this heart attack was real, and Foxx never regained consciousness.

The central picture of Mr. Foxx from “Darth Redder” of course is not the picture of his actual death but the fake one from his famous Sanford and Son series. Superimposed on his torso is an actual red fox, harking back to this older post. I’ll quote some again…

https://bakerbloch.wordpress.com/2014/08/04/oracle-time/

carr01

bb (“reading” map):

A little carr. Spider. To navigate the narrow streets of Bath. Drive/Steer a Littcarr. Then something about Reddfoxx and racial issues. White… black. Take a Gander, I suppose.

And I believe that’s the first mention of Redd Foxx in this Frank and Herman Einstein! Blog. Slightly later we find that he could be one of the 6 or 7 enrollees at the short lived Sam Parr State College in Collagesity, Noru, and seemingly the only African-American of the bunch. We also find out that although he is only a straight “C” student, he still may have better entrance grades than anyone else.

Foxx appropriately then appears in several Sam Parr series collages, namely Collage 07 (a diptych with Collage 06), and then also in Collage 08. In Collage 07, he rises from the far edge of Sam Parr Lake, below a giant arching, frog tossing figure of Sam Parr Model, who seems to be a stand-in here for the primary Collagesity deity we call Carrcassonnee. He flashes an okay sign with his hand to the picture viewer. Although we have red foxes in a number of collages prior to this, we don’t have Redd Foxx himself appearing until now. He has manifested.

samparr07real12b

In the first part of the same of the dipytch (left hand side) we have a red fox, the same image used in “Darth Redder”. This is also a new collage image (not the same as the old foxes), and is drawn by another Sam Parr who I call Sam Parr Artist (or SPA) to differentiate from Sam Parr Model (SPaM) and the rest.

samparr10real12

I consciously doubled these images in that diptych, but on opposite sides. In “Darth Redder”, the images are combined or fused in the middle. I had the feeling that the red fox in Redd’s arms is his soul or ka, perhaps to become an ahk. When it departs from his arms, he is dead, attack completed. Some ancient Egyptians believed that under favorable circumstances the ahk is created that could present itself as a ghost of the deceased. Redd Foxx himself is said to have haunted his old Las Vegas house, seized by the IRA for back taxes in 1989.

In part 2 of the animation…

collage09test96a
“Darth Redder, Part 2”

… the fox is gone, and instead we have a floating body appearing from behind a rock wall to the right. It has seemingly replaced the Darth Vader “reaching” image from part 1, and instead we find the dark Vader mask covering the face of the “dead” Redd Foxx. This is the departure of the ka from the body in my opinion at the moment of death.

Redd Foxx represents The Father, as he played in Sanford *and Son*. There he faked heart attacks. This one depicted here is the real deal. An sad faced orange m&m pendant hanging in the same tree looks on.

(continued in)


(continued from)

We’ve already mentioned recently that Sam Parr Model in Sam Parr collage 07 has the head of a fox: Redd Foxx once more. This would be the collage just after his first appearance in my work in the Collage 06/07 diptych of that earlier series. And this same Sam Parr Model image now appears in both parts of “Darth Redder”, and, in its second part, with the superimposed head of Redd Foxx once more (2x larger than before in respect to the body). Is this a representation of the akh or haunting spirit?

samparr08real06

collage09test96a

So his head is covered with the Darth Vader helmet, but simultaneously appears on Sam Parr Model in the background to the right. The group of people in front of her from the first part of the animation have meanwhile disappeared. They seem to be the same as the floating body in front of them. We know this from a prior interpretation of Collage 07 in the new series, which contain these same images. Instead of reproducing the collages, I’ll just give links to the 2 part interpretation:

Hucka D.:

What’s Darth Redder reaching for on the right side?

bb:

Good morning, Hucka D. I was hoping you’d show up. The tetraptych is a difficult one to interpret because of the overall complexity. I had the same problem with the Falmouth tetraptych, the first one I did. The analysis of Gilatona-Lis, going pretty smoothly up to that point, got a bit mired there. And it’s Darth Vader on the right side. Darth Redder is just a name I invented to fuse Redd Foxx and Darth Vader together. He’s reaching for… well, he had [a dancing] *Brak* in his hand. Here’s the source image. We can go from there.

esb02

It’s the logo of sorts for the carrcass I’ve numbered “Carrcass-0”. Can I give the actual name out here?

Hucka D.:

Might as well. It’s Aunt Frylock. (pause) Isn’t it?

bb:

No. It’s [delete name]. Well, I don’t seem to be able to give the name out. Wait… silly me, that’s not the name anyway. Okay, I’ll say it. It’s [delete name].

Hucka D.:

Let me try. “Empire Strikes Brak”. How’s that? Did you hear that well enough?

bb:

Let me check the blog post (checks). Yes (!). It showed up for you. Hmmm.

Hucka D.:

It’s because I’m a Greenheader next to Red Head.

bb:

Anyway, so we have a mashup of named “Empire Strikes Back” with “The Brak Show”, like in the carrcass. The scene is Darth Vader “reaching” out to his son Luke Skywalker, asking him to join him, or to join the Dark Side.

Hucka D.:

That’s correct. Like he did.

bb:

No, Hucka D., he didn’t join his father. He stayed on the Light Side of The Force.

Hucka D.:

Well, how did he do that without getting killed? There was no way off that pole but down, and that was a mile long fall at least. He couldn’t have made it. Movie sequel over after [roughly] 1 hour. Partial price of tickets had to be refunded. You tell me how he did it?

bb (smiling):

Yes, Hucka D., you’re setting me up. We know now how Luke Skywalker escaped the clutches of Darth Vader and didn’t fall to his death. It is because he had a magic toenail and simply wished himself into at least a slightly better place. This is a gift from *Brak*.

Snapshot2022_003

But where Collage 09 joins with Collage 10 we have overlapping animations, an interesting effect for certain. Darth Vader reaches out to *12 Oz Mouse* here, and there’s also another animated Brak nearby — in the same driveway that Vader’s arm extends over a bit. Is this a perfect place to segue to an interpretation of Collage 10, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

As good as any. We can return to Collage 09 if needed. Who lives in the white house that dominates 10?

Hucka D.:

That would be the little yellow one. You are[ unfortunately] correct. Brak’s stars and stripes gives him away. Here’s a picture from “Baker Bloch in England”. Brak is the King. We do not have a picture of his Queen in the new series. But this is the same Brak and giving the same warm welcome. This is his house[ once more]. We are in Stonethwaite, true — another farm — but we are still also in Wiltshire. We’ve never left Wiltshire. We will never leave, you and I. You can still visit me, Baker Bloch, Baker Blinker at the Temple Farm.

bb:

But it’s more than that, I’m picking up you want to say.

Hucka D.:

Yes. You have limited yourself in your talking[ about carrcasses] to others to SID’s 1st Oz and before. You are acting like nothing happened after the Civil War (yourself) in this respect. You have not freed the true carrcasses beyond SID’s 1st Oz. You are still fighting the Civil War.

bb:

Interesting and perhaps a little peculiar comparison.

Hucka D.:

You are lying to others, true?

bb:

Yes.

Hucka D.:

They do not appreciate this.

dixieloser

bb:

But it’s more.

450px-Flag_of_Arkansas.svg

Hucka D.:

Yes. This is about Arkansas, one of the loser states. I’ve always stated that you should center everything on Arkansas and not pay attention to that Show-Me state just to the north.

bb:

Missouri[ you mean].

Hucka D.:

I’m not saying that name.

bb:

Why do you hate Missouri so much, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Because it isn’t the center. *Your* center.

bb:

But you are also limiting yourself in this way.

Hucka D.:

We can only go so far in this life. There are winners and there are losers[ always]. (pause)

bb:

So what I’m thinking — picking up — is that you are equating Arkansas with SID’s 1st Oz.

Hucka D.:

You know it.

bb:

Hillary is from Arkansas. Bill…

Hucka D.:

In part two of Collage 10, now called “Holey”, we see two namesake types. First is an actual hole — or half hole, really — that appears on the ground before a now leaning 12 Oz Mouse on the far left side of the collage.

Snapshot2035_006

I’ve limited the view here to the left side of Collage 10, focusing in on the 2 “holey” images themselves. Now the second one is something “holy” instead of “holey”. The most holy thing for many, in fact. This is the image of Baby Jesus appearing with Brak now. He cradles the illuminated infant in his berobed arms. It strokes his queer yellow beard. He becomes yet another father in this manner: St. Joseph, father of Jesus. This image is first found in my blog from last fall here:

https://bakerbloch.wordpress.com/2014/10/03/2-st-joes/

joseph02

In this same post we have a picture of the Maumee River basin, this stream formed by the conjunction of St. Joseph and St. Marys rivers at Fort Wayne, Indiana. You can see why I associate it with Jesus, then. The Holy Infant confuses his father for his mother. He is just a wee lad, not much removed from tadpole status. But is this his father, see? Isn’t God the Father? And so forth. So these 2 “holeys” appear on the left side of Collage 10, defining the tone of the picture reading it from left to right.

Maumeerivermap

The Maumee River basin has showed up in a prior Stonethrow collage, or Collage 06 (“Beware (The) Heelers”), part 02 of the 2 section animation to be exact. There it’s covered by what’s called the Great Black Swamp, drained in the early to mid 1800s by settlers to the area.

wheelers15

You can again see Fort Wayne to the left and Toledo, at the Maumee’s mouth, to the right. The whole of the Maumee River was apparently submerged in or made one with this giant, dark marsh before the Great Drain. Very peculiar — and I didn’t know about this swamp until several months after creating that October post. I had other reasons to be drawn to that area (Rainbowology).

The image of the Great Black Swamp here covers the word “The”. The second part of the Collage 06 animation becomes just “Beware Heelers” instead of “Beware The Heelers” of part one. Collage 06 also contains a number of other Rainbowology elements, including Dorothy Gale, the Witch Mombi, and Ozma, all characters from Baum’s Oz mythology later found in the movie “Return to Oz”, the base for the earlier carrcass “SID’s 1st Oz” from 2002. The basic point of Collage 07 is that Ozma as true ruler of that fantasyland is able to symbolically drain the Great Black Swamp again by reversing Dorothy’s Fall highlighted in “Dark Side of the Rainbow”. This is the same as Dorothy (and Oz itself) being saved by TILE, a religion that has replaced X-ianity for me by becoming as much a philosophy and a board game as a religion per se. “Per se, Hucka D.” (pause) Not there.

Snapshot2035_009

And then on the *right* hand side of Collage 10 we again have the image of Dorothy falling off that confounding pigpen fence, animated this time. The second animation (below picture) shows Dorothy more in the actual state of falling, and this image again directly comes from Collage 07. The first Dorothy (above picture) is more in the process of losing her balance on this fence, causing the fall. “But through the magic of the collage, she instead falls off the roof of this white house, Hucka D.” (pause) Hmmm.

Snapshot2035_008

The orange m&m has “reappeared”, looking very concerned again like he did as a pendant image in the prior “Darth Redder” collage of this tetraptych. But this m&m, and his accompanying smaller rainbow colored clan of same tagging along behind him and then in front of him (as they too seem to fall) are actually a part of Collage 11, after Collage 10. I call this final collage of the tetraptych “Rainbow Men.”

Hucka D.:

This time we must now move quite yet into an interpretation of your Collage 11 beyond Collage 10 but focus on the latter. And good morning to you.

bb:

Thanks Hucka D. And thanks for showing up again to help me with this difficult and complex interpretation…

Hucka D.:

… of a difficult and complex work. But it’s not that complex. Just keep your thumb next to the line you next recite and you’ll do fine.

bb:

Stick to the [already written] script, eh.

Hucka D.:

Precisely. Now what are your next lines? Because you’re next up.

bb:

Tadpole?

Hucka D.:

No. Read the line to the *left* of your thumb instead of the right. You’re always confusing those directions. At least you usually get up and down right the first time. Or is it left?

bb:

We must focus on the White House.

Hucka D.:

Good. You’ve already established a racist lives there and that racist is Brak The King from Temple Farm, Marlborough, as featured in the Baker Bloch Heads To England exhibit from 2010, I believe. Blochhead. Bloch-head.

bb:

But you’re also saying that Brak represents the great loser state of Arkansas, or perhaps he hails from there.

Hucka D.:

Hell.

bb:

And you’ve always told me, ever since the beginning of my blogging days in the old Baker Blinker one, that Arkansas is the center and the focus and not let my attention stray too far north. Or *up*.

Hucka D.:

Down is where it’s at, yes.

bb:

Do you want to explain this further? I mean, just looking at [Collage 10], we have a dog stuck on the side of a wall — this is a Little Whitehead Art Collective creation once more — with a miniature Patrick Star of Spongebob Squarepants looking on with ice cream cone in hand. He’s just a big kid through and through. Then an even tinier Spongebob emerges from his pineapple home. (pause)

Hucka D.:

I can’t see that far down.

bb:

Here…

collage10test21d

Hucka D.:

Thank you[ for showing me the whole picture]. “Holey”.

bb:

Patrick Star appeared in the Falmouth tetraptych that completed the 2013 Gilatona-Lis sequence of collages, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

I remember. Vaguely.

bb:

Well, here he is in case you’ve totally forgotten.

falmouth04final05

Hucka D.:

Thanks once more. But if you’re going to rezz that whole [older] tetraptych then we’re going to have to stand back a bit.

bb:

Then I won’t do that.

Hucka D.:

Thanks yet again.

bb:

And Spongebob also showed up in earlier Gilatona-Lis works. And his pineapple home appears in the original Embarras collage (Embarras 01).

Hucka D.:

“Why?” I hear you asking in your mind. Well, to give the collages a bit of levity for one thing. The dog flies into the white house and becomes stuck like in flypaper. I must ask you: is this dog Spider? Carrcassonnee’s Spider that still sits in the Collage Temple beside his master, still spouting out the permutations of that hellish number 2130?

bb:

He’s not exactly the same color but it does appear to be a Chihuahua of similar shape and size. And Patrick Star hates Spiders — that’s another connection.

Hucka D.:

Maybe we better end on that humorous note. Yes, the dog is Spider. Yes, that’s why Patrick Star is there. Mr. Star is also a crop circle, as is Spongebob Squarepants… as are their 3 houses in a row if you throw in “trapped in the middle” Squidward and reduce all to the base of Patrick’s rock. [That’s all Morgan Hill crop circles.]

“The yellow racist McCoy shows up with Patrick Star and Spongebob Squarepants in that picture we just looked at, Hucka D., but he shows up better in the Gilatona-Lis collage immediately before, taking place, er, in Devizes on the left side of the main crop circle territory, and southwest of Morgan Hill.”

llis05final03

Hucka D.:

We better get back to Collage 10. In Collage 01 of the Stonethwaite series — er, *Stonethrow* series — [the dog] Spider shows up again. Or previous. He appears on the bank before the Whitehead X-ing teepee, about at the spot you saw a snake this spring, harking back to the “I don’t like spiders and snakes song”.

collage01
“Spongeberg” (Stonethrow 01)

bb:

That’s one of your favorites, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Not really. Why is Spider[ in Collage 10] stuck to the house, like he’s magnetized to it? Since Patrick Star’s rock house is also infested with spiders, can we say this is Patrick Star’s home as well, this White House?

collage10test20d

Let’s just say that a racist lives there and be done with it. We can return[ to this collage]. I’d like to talk about the very first collage in the Red Umbrella, way down in the basement near the front. That’s Sam Parr 01 (“2130!”). That’s the house at the beginning of the 4th Way, the mysterious new trail — unofficial — of Frank Park that makes a direct path into Whitehead Crossing, like the other three official ones. And where does it ultimately lead to now? That teepee. The 4th Way was built so that someone could more easily get to the teepee area. The same person or persons must have built both, along with putting those potted plants up in that fallen tree.

falmouth62test01e
“2130!”(Sam Parr 01)

bb:

So you’re wanting to study why the first collage of the Sam Parr series ties into the first collage of the new Stonethrow series through this 4th Way.

Hucka D.:

I’m there on the balcony[ pictured in Sam Parr 01], after all. Spongeberg at the Whitehead X-ing teepee is Story Room and one more, the green one or mossy fellow. He is red, blue, green, yellow, as in the stars appearing on his sky night jumpsuit. Spongeberg is inside the teepee and outside sitting on Welcome Matt (rock) at once. He is in 2 places at once. He is the man who built the 4th Way, the teepee. He may have even built/purchased 2130 at the [other] end of this 4th. We must speak of Spongeberg.

bb:

Spongeberg is the same as Chuck, the yellow one of the Story Room rock group.

Hucka D. (after a pause):

Yes.

bb:

But he is not me.

Hucka D.:

No. You instead live at Red Head. Close but not the same. (another pause) We can knock at the door but no one will answer.

bb:

You’re talking about the White House of Collage 10. The racist who lives inside will not answer. We cannot know who he is truly truly is.

Hucka D.:

He is Wheeler Wilson. Or Wilson Wheeler. Truly.

bb:

The racist appears to be an X-ian. Worshipping a lily white Baby Jesus tugging at his queer yellow beard. At the same time 12 Oz Mouse leans down to examine a suddenly appearing hole that lies exactly between Collage 09 and Collage 10. We in fact only see the half of the hole shown in Collage 10. And we also know that Peanut is within the hole.

Hucka D.:

In an alternate reality collage.

—–

“In Stonethrow 10, Patrick Star looks at the dog who you say is the same as Spider. In Stonethrow 01, Spongeberg looks at the actual image of Spider on a bank below the teepee. He sits on a rounded rock, quite similar in shape if not size to Patrick’s round rock home. He wears a jesters hat and belt to complete his night sky outfit. I think Spongeberg may have anticipated the images of Collage 10, Hucka D., in his own collage coming at the beginning of the same series. White House equals Whitehead X-ing Teepee?”

Hucka D.:

And [Spongeberg] has *stars* all over him (smiles).

bb:

And of course the name Spongeberg comes partially from Spongebob, Patrick’s best buddy. Hmmm.

Peanut died in a hole at the beginning of Carrcass-01, Hucka D., the first time we see him. And this is *right* before 12 Oz Mouse sees that same hole that’s now in Collage 10. The two *must* be related. This is where Peanut dies, this hole. Yellow Down.

Snapshot2035_008

The large orange m&m watches in alarm as Dorothy falls from the roof of the White House, as we’re calling it. But Dorothy is on the left side of Collage 10 (“Holey”) and the orange m&m watches her from the left side of Collage 11, the last in the tetraptych. He is associated with the Aqua Teen Hunger Force character Meatwad within, not once but twice. That is, we have 2 images of Meatwad in this last collage that are clearly associated with this m&m. For one, each of the 3 — Meatwads and the similarly colored orange m&m — appear beside Frylock, another Aqua Teen character.

collage11test96a
Collage 11: “Rainbow Men (Part 1)”

As stated previously I call this one “Rainbow Men”. And again we have several images of African-Americans, each different from ones that came before in the tetraptych (IT Crowd’s Moss, and Sanford and Son’s Fred Sanford). And each are attached to their own Meatwad, actually. Let’s create separate pictures of the 2 in question, and examine the similar elements and then the more subtle differences.

collage11test95a
Collage 11: “Rainbow Men (Part 2)”

Hucka D.:

These are in fact the Rainbow Men of the title. Each are away from the White House, perhaps even homeless. But neither are in their real existences. The black man leaning against the Quilt Rock is a professor. The black man in the grass seeming to lean against the fence is Scatman Cruthers laying in his bed in warm beautiful Florida, on a winter break from the Overlook Hotel of The Shining, clearly having fun away from that heavily cursed hotel. He should know better than anyone, given that he has a powerful gift of shining. But what are these transposed men, these Rainbow Men, doing here outside the White House? Each are accompanied by the same 3 Aqua Teen characters: Frylock, Meatwad, and Master Shake. Frylock appears closest to each, then Meatwad and lastly Shake. He is very white, gleaming shiny white almost. He represents a bigot, a racist, or just racism in general. He is the opposite of the rainbow, or the inversion. In his role here, he may thinking himself separate and superior to these Rainbow Men near him. The Shake near Scatman Cruthers remains pure and white in both parts of the animation. However, the Shake connected with the Quilt Rock African-American undergoes a change from part 1 to part 2. He turns into a rainbow himself. He becomes enlightened. This is post-Civil War thinking, where the loser flag is established.

rainbowmenexcerpt03
Cruther’s untransformed Shake beside Quilt Man’s transformed, “rainbowed” Shake in part 2

Quilt Man’s Meatwad touches Shake in part 2, seeming to transform him into a rainbow form. Rainbow colored m&m’s tag along with the orange m&m on the left side of the collage, and then fall in part 2 just as Dorothy falls off the roof in Collage 10 coming before this. Both are *Rainbow Falls*.

And_the_clouds_clear_to_reveal...

The Contraption from a number of other collages in the last several years appears beside the rainbow spectrum extending from shake [below Meatwad]. This is again the rainbow. Who, then, lives in the house, the White House?

bb:

A past self, Hucka D. Me before the Civil War.

Hucka D.:

A good guess, and correct in its own way. Yet you changed. Book 3. The former rocket launcher was found to be sentient. Pope is born. The Beanstalk. And now Second Life has one of its own. And your Mythos has one of its own. You called it [delete name]. It became the center of your alternate US. It was a rainbow extension of something like Shake, a former unenlightened self. You latched onto it, it latched onto you. This is true freedom. Philadelphia.

bb:

Thanks for that information, Hucka D. (looks at Collage 11) And then we have an *actual* homeless man, a caucasian or white man this time, behind the fence that Cruthers seems to lean against. In part 1 he holds an image of Karoz, or perhaps holds Karoz himself. Although this is the name of a Second Life character, a brother and an alt to Baker Bloch, the name is a reverse form of Zorak, yet another Space Ghost related character. And his “outfit” still contains some elements of Zorak, just as Baker Bloch’s outfit retains even less subtle elements of Space Ghost. And Karoz appears in the Sam Parr series. Let’s take a look, Hucka D.:

samparr10test07h
Sam Parr 09

Hucka D.:

You forgot to mention that the homeless man peering over top of the fence is another Aqua Teen character, a more minor one this time. But he is clearly homeless, unlike Cruthers, unlike the Quilt Rock man. They just give the *appearance* of perhaps being homeless in this collage. Why?

bb:

Stereotyping.

Hucka D.:

Yeah.

bb:

There’s a very interesting article about Cruthers’ role in The Shining, Hucka D., that I’ll give a link to here LINK. I don’t believe Kubrick was a racist, but he had a racist character say the “n” word in the movie, and in direct reference to Cruthers’ character (Chef Dick Hallorann of the Overlook Hotel). Because of this, Cruthers’ character becomes “My Nigerian Friend”.

Hucka D.:

Yup.

bb:

The Fall is the fall of the old South, like seen in “Gone With The Wind”. Like the fall of the old Japan in “The Wind Rises”. But more the former.

Hucka D.:

Getting back to [Sam Parr 09], Karoz’s head is highlighted again. In the new collage his head, when he seems to be dropped from the top of the fence by Aqua Teen’s homeless guy, merges with the head of Cruthers below. [This is probably a symbol of stereotyping again.] In [Sam Parr 09], a green stream emerges from his head to his right. This is the stream that runs from Falmouth to Sam Parr. Karoz’s head contains wisdom. After all, he started up Sam Parr State College or at least agreed to become its first and only president. And he personally recruited Redd Foxx as one of the students. He desired a diverse student body.

“Rainbow Men” excerpt: beer drinking Jackalope

This central image from Collage 11 is obviously akin to 12 Oz Mouse from the first collage of the tetraptych, or “Animation Nation”. Both are multiple beer drinking animals of “X Brand” variety…

fitz01
“Animation Nation” excerpt: beer guzzling 12 Oz Mouse

12 Oz Mouse is also found in the 3rd collage of the tetraptych (“Holey”), leaning over to stare at a hole. He leans the opposite way there from a drinking position. Is he sobering up instead? Seeing the hole that is his life as an alcoholic rodent?

Anyway, another thing to remark about is that the left part of the jackalope image above is cut off on the *center line* of Collage 11. Likewise 12 Oz Mouse’s hole is cut in 2 by the left edge of Collage 10 before this. The effect helps further unite the 2 characters.

The jackalope, or at least his head (her head?), has made one other appearance in my collages that I recall, and we’ve already reviewed it a bit in the last post here: Sam Parr 09. I’ll throw up the picture again. Or insert it in this post again, I mean.

samparr10test07h

And Karoz again appears in a collage with this animal. The jackalope wears the body in Collage 11, as it were, of Sam Parr Model (SPaM). The blue robot of the red-blue-7 Stones pairing perches on her shoulder. The antlers make a shape similar to that of Sam Parr Lake, whose outline appears in the center of Collage 10 (blue, coral like growth sprouting from wall vegetation). So the jackalope represents Sam Parr in multiple forms. The Falmouth Rabbit appears in the landscape below it, the central figure of Collage 11 and the focus. A smaller Karoz’s head indicates it by pointing and mirroring. In drafts of Collage 11, I had this little Karoz appearing on the foot of the drinking jackalope. Now the larger image of Karoz is all that’s left, but in both parts of the animation and in two different positions. He appears to fall from the wall, originally held by the cartoon homeless man from Aqua Teen, but somehow also turning around in the fall to “land” on his head, which is the same as the head of Scatman Cruthers at the foot of the wall. A surreal impossibility in other words — collage liberties. Much like a giant and small Karoz appear together in that Sam Parr collage: perspective distortion there.

The orange bottle and also the orange squares on the back of the truck behind him reinforce the association of 12 Oz Mouse in “Animation Nation” with the central orange jackalope in Collage 11. The orange is also reinforced in the multiple Meatwads in the same collage, but, moreover, the orange m&m to his above right, the one watching the Fall of Dorothy from the White House. Another resonance with the Meatwads is accidental: Part of his antler was cut off when I edited the overall animation — this would be in part 2. I left the mistake in because it seems to mirror Meatwad’s “hand” *extending* from his body in part 2 and touching Shake, simultaneously turning him into a Rainbow Man himself.

“Are we done with this one Hucka D.?”

—–

Since Hucka doesn’t seem to be around this morning let’s assume we are and move into Collage 12, which is the last one of the Stonethrow series and called “Triumph of the Toys”. The Red Fox appears again, just like she did in Sam Parr 10 (coming after Sam Parr 09 just discussed above). This is probably a Peter Gabriel image again, balancing his appearance in the first collage of the tetraptych perhaps: Lamb Lies Down on Broadway’s character Rael, as opposed to Foxtrot’s anthropomorphized fox here. This fox represents an endpoint. The music from the album Foxtrot is used in a more recent synch I’ve named Carrcass-6. This carrcass also features video excerpt from 12 Oz Mouse, some of which is dubbed by the Foxtrot music.

collage12atest08

Here we have part 1 of the two part animation that is “Triumph of the Toys”… there’s the red fox I’m speaking about against a rock wall in the mid-ground. Almost beside her is a green mossman with scepter in left hand. Above him is a giant Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin fame, head against the sky. He’s staring at another sky head, golden in color but about to turn red and erupt, as it were. A row of toy blocks is arranged in the foreground, spelling TOYS itself. Master Shake again looks on from the right, but he appears to be asleep in part 1.

collage12btest11

In part 2 he appears to be jolted awake by Mossman, who has continued to move forward and is now standing on the toy blocks. His *right* arm has become transparent and extending, holding a multi-chromatic ball *triumphantly*. This is the triumph of the toys (whatever that really means). Hucka D. is still not here to help me. I’m going to make some guesses.

We’ve mentioned that the red fox of the present collage is also found in the last collage of the Sam Parr series also found in The Red Umbrella gallery: Sam Parr 10. Last collage reflects last collage in this way. And I’m also thinking there’s another resonance: I believe the fact that the 4 colors of TILE are found in that pile of objects that Mossman passes to his right on his way to the toy blocks — red, green, blue, yellow — also allows us to tie this into Sam Parr 10 in the similar 4 colors of TILE making up the stage to the left.

samparr10teset02b
Sam Parr 11: “The Stage” (part 2 of 2 part animation)

In particular, I believe the wooden shelves or whatever they are, covered in plastic in “Triumph” can be paralleled with the tiny studio appearing on this TILE surrounded stage in the Sam Parr collage. Does the passing Mossman then equal The Master’s charismatic religious figure Lancaster Dobb (source image for Sam Parr 11)? And does he champion TILE instead of The Cause, if so? The ball he triumphantly holds high in the air contains all the TILE colors in one, chromatic whole. His scepter has been switched from right to left hand in the process. The eyes in the formerly golden head of the far background, high on the mountains apparently, have erupted redness like a volcano. What is the triumph? Obviously this has something to do with the story of Mossman Gene Fade of Frank and Herman Parks. I don’t think Mossman appears in any of the other collages in the Red Umbrella, although he is found in other Collagesity gallery works.

Where does this Mossman get the ball? Did the fox pass it on to him? Or does it represent the TILE colored pile of objects he also passes by in moving from mid-ground to foreground? We have more questions than answers here. Why am I not surprised. We’ll have to wait until Hucka D. wakes up much later on to further our investigation, if needed.

END OF STONETHROW INTERPRETATION.
