Bigfoot Chesterton revisited

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

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

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

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

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

Seeing Not Seeing

Once again Baker Bloch stares out at the Martian landscape beyond Collagesity. The town will have to start exploring that landscape soon enough, he thinks, but for now we have Dr. Blood’s fascinating tales to study. Better than Blood Curdling’s! he thinks further, but then regrets dissing his favorite book (“Blood Curdling Tells of the Rubi Woods”). Dr. Blood says the woods will come back, but not before we discover the beating heart of the red orange planet. Then and only then. He adds that Mars is an aggressive orb and leaves it there.

Baker can’t help but think Collagesity’s Stone 10 holds an important clue to the dilemma at hand.

“That pattern is hypnotic.”

His favorite seat in the Blue Feather club: inundated by Martian sand. He has to sit upstairs. Syd Barrett Gothic still doesn’t want to talk about the day Mars crashed into Collagesity. He remains traumatized. “The woods are gone, the woods are gone, the *woods* are gone,” he worries over and over. He’s having great difficulty accepting the fact that his old home has simply vanished into thin air seemingly. Truth is, the woods are still very much there. It’s all about perception and what we choose and don’t choose to see.

For example, Baker could certainly *choose* to see this row of eucalyptus trees along the northern edge of E-8 right now from his Blue Feather perch.

He could have chosen to view Winnie the Pooh and his honey wagon bumping along the Martian slope behind Stone 10 just moments back. He could decide to see the danger coming forth from atop what would later become known as Chesterton Knoll.

But he didn’t do any of these things. Collagesity remains shrouded in deep orange mystery.

Chat 03

BBloch:

No, I really did have another party to attend. Well, a party period.

Hucka D.:

We know what’s going on [behind the scenes]. We know of the evil twin. We know of BoBylon.

BBloch:

Of course. I already told you.

Carr.:

This was all set up[ I’m afraid]. Yes, it was to protect you Baker Bloch, and baker b. through you. The famous or infamous Collagesity collagist up there and down here. You almost told Riverpearl that you were both a real life artist and a Second life artist at once.

BBloch:

It’s Pearl. Just Pearl.

Carr.:

You had so much to say and ask but your fingers limited you. Well, it’s actually this place. Imagine a place where the discourse is so limited. You type and erase, trying to take in what was said several exchanges back. In the end you get little results. Are you even a member of the group you asked to join?

BBloch (checking):

I don’t think so.

Carr.:

You wanted to discuss BoBylon with someone. Nautilus mainland. You are in the heart of the fire now, Baker Bloch. How does it feel?

BBloch:

Pretty good, actually. Speaking for my evil twin.

Carr.:

Well, let’s see how close [he and Chad Ghostal are] (reading):

“Voiced by Brad Abelle, Chad Ghostal is Space Ghost’s evil twin brother, distinguished from Space Ghost in physical appearance only by a crudely drawn Van Dyke beard. He is a beatnik, with a love for jazz music and outdated beatnik slang, and is both extremely cool and evil.” Sounds a bit like Chester. Chester, can you dig it!?

Chester (breaking off talking to Lisa):

I can!

Carr. (continuing):

“He is also quite the ladies’ man.” Well, well, well. (Carr. eyes Baker Bloch, then continues) “Chad is first mentioned in the episode Jerk where he calls in to the show to tell Space Ghost he has escaped from the asylum and will be there shortly. Chad’s first appearance onscreen is in “Switcheroo”,[citation needed] where he uses his resemblance to Space Ghost to switch places with him…” blah blah blah. Blah blah blah, Chester!

Chester:

Blah blah blah!

Carr.:

And so you wanted to speak to another about BoBylon. On the mainland. Nautilus. Completed book. The pieces stitched together that are BoBylon. BoBylon. And this is where your collage series will start?

BBloch:

I don’t know. (looking around) Hucka D. must have flown off to get more toast. Oh, drat, I can’t say he flew off now… no wings.

Carr.:

Or buzzed off. We’ll miss out on so many of those jokes.

BBloch:

I wonder what he’ll eventually decide to become?

Carr.:

Well, we know he’s a woman now and that’s a start. Endless possibilities. AC and DC. Highway to Hell and back [in black?].

BBloch:

That sounds like[ something of] a closer, Carrcassonne. Gotta get up in an hour or two… working slob you know.

Carr.:

Slob for sure.

“Chester a permanent fixture in your gazebo here, Carrcassonnee?”

Carr.:

Yes. He is to remind you of reality. Real Life. The higher fiction.

bb;

The higher fiction. [I] like that, Carrcassonne.

Carr.:

Please. Call me Carr. It will save your fingers.

bb:

Ok Carr. I think you got mad at me one time when I shortened your name like that.

Carr.:

Must have been a bad day[ if so]. Maybe it’s that day I got soap in my eye after that wonderful shower and froze up in the woods, looking for a towel.

bb (nonplussed):

Maybe.

Carr.:

Lisa’s also a fixture. Aren’t you Lisa? Who’s a good girl? (answering herself) *I’m* a good girl. You see, I *am* Lisa. It’s not a ventriloquist act. (pause) But you have questions about Collagesity, about Second Life in general. My Second Lyfe.

bb:

Suppose so, but no new ones probably. Should I give up Collagesity in a week?

Carr. (after a short pause):

I would say yes except the answer is no. You know people visit now, even contribute to the town’s funds. And what are you doing with the funds?

bb:

Well…

Carr.:

You are spending them on something else.

bb:

Well, not really. I think people are contributing to help pay for the land tier. Everyone in Second Life knows it’s a little expensive to own even a 4096 or an 8192. An 8192 is a minimum base for one of my towns now. I’ve gotten it down to that. But on top of that I have a 768 rented from Markland where the Red Umbrella and Norum College is. If that goes — if I don’t pay rent in a week — then it’s all dominos, as the other [land pieces] fall one after another until only one remains.

Carr.:

Yes, one should remain.

bb:

And what of the 10×10 of 100 collages? It’s not even in Collagesity — hasn’t been there for 1/2 a year maybe. And the World of Collages, connecting Collagesity to the outer world of collages, let’s say, hasn’t been there for almost as long. If people visit Collagesity now, they don’t get the whole village. The Art 10×10 *should* be in Collagesity — it’s not really and fully Collagesity without it. And that gallery was very hard earned down through the years unlike, say, the most recent one — Boos — which formed quite quickly.

Carr.:

You’re ultimately wondering where Bogota[ the projected newest collage series] will take root. You’ve speculated BoB — [is it] still named that?

bb:

Yes. I think we should talk of BoB.

Carr.:

I heard you met another avatar for a change last night. Riverpearl?

bb:

Pearl Grey. She very nicely offered me a spot on her gallery wall in Quentin. She and some of her friends get together every so often and celebrate the wasteland. I mean, Mainland.

Carr.:

Waneland. (pause) So that brought up the new challenge… you go. Where’s Hucka D.?

bb:

I don’t know Carrcassonnee. Yes, does Collagesity live for another month or do I just pull the plug?

Carr.:

Getting back to BoB…

Hucka D.:

Hi! I was summoned.

Carr.:

Hi Hucka D.! Nice of you to buzz in.

Hucka D.:

Always with the bee jokes, hehe.

Carr.:

Har har.

bb:

Ho ho?

Carr.:

Back to the subject. Thanks for joining us Hucka.

Snapshot8107_001

Hucka D.:

Baker, could you move this thing further away from me? As Clare Fischer might say: “hovering!”.

bb:

Sure, hold on. So you know of Claire Fisher, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

The musician? Sure.

bb:

I think she’s an artist on the show. Well, in fact I know she’s an artist, because we’re watching it now.

Hucka D.:

I know. (pause) It’s still there.

Snapshot8106_004

bb:

Ok, I moved it over there so it — Chester — can talk to Lisa the Vegetarian, most likely about real life concerns. Isn’t that right, Carrcassonnee?

Carr.:

Isn’t what right? Reality?

Hucka D.:

Thank you. I enjoy spinach.

bb:

Is that relative?

Hucka D.:

Yes, in real life I relish spinach. I hate it down here in this hell hole.

Carr.:

I have a pistachio ice cream fetish up there. Here it just all melts before it gets to my mouth even. What *is* this place you’ve brought us to, Baker Bloch?

bb:

BoBylon?

Hucka D.:

I’m roasting. I’m going to take off these hot wings. (after checking) Well, it seems I can’t. What’s all that Space Ghost stuff doing in my avatar, Baker Bloch? I didn’t know I was part Space Ghost as well!

bb:

You’ve forgotten. *I’ve* forgotten. [8/3/16 note: *both* didn’t realize during the moment that they were looking at Baker Bloch’s outfit profile, not Hucka Doobie’s]

Hucka D.:

Simply roasting. See, my palms are wet. My hair is getting wet.

bb:

Why don’t you just come back when it cools off later tonight.

Hucka D.:

Night, day, what’s the difference here? And you wonder why I don’t show up much any more. Even the White Palace up there in purgatory can get a bit warm. You still hang up there without me?

bb:

No, it was just basically you and me there. Now I have Carrcassonnee to chat with. Down here.

Hucka D:

Ugh. So f’ing hot.

(then Hucka D. did the unthinkable)

Hucka D.:

I hereby declare myself *not* a bee any longer.
