Bodega? Analysis 07

“I think we may be able to finish this off tonight, Baker Bloch. Good work!”

“Thanks.”

“How are your hands?”

“Fine. Neck’s getting a little sore, but it’s okay.”

“We are at ‘see title 02,’ comparable to ‘see title 01a’ in that we have an image in the collage uttering the actual title: ‘I’m Old Gregg!’. The image is that of Twin Peaks Agent Dale Cooper, h0wever, and not Noel Fielding’s Old Gregg character from ‘Mighty Boosh’ again.”

“Right. It’s Dale Cooper. But the twinned women to the right and left kind of reminded me of Old Gregg.”

“Put a picture of Old Gregg up for all to ogle.”

“And the red curtains are from the Black Lodge again,” Baker Bloch furthers. “The whole collage, I suppose, could  be set in the lodge. 3 parts.”

“A kind of triptych. And more difficult to compose that the others (in this exhibit). You actually had Old Gregg’s head superimposed on one of those similarly colored women at one point.”

“Right. Lots of going back and forth with images and positions for this one, Hucka Doobie. ”

Hucka Doobie studies further. “So Genesis album figures reappear, just like we had in ‘Pageturner’ to begin (the exhibit). They’re — let’s see — split into 3 pairs according to panels this time. We have more explanation of what’s going on, perhaps.”

Baker Bloch looks as well.

“Well, Baker Bloch, we have framing, tall legged red people on either side to begin, man to the right and woman on the left. They are ‘presenters.'”

“Alright.”

“What is presented or displayed? 3 panels yes. A triptych, red and blue-green being the dominant colors, a clash of Boosh’s Old Gregg and the Black Lodge’s Red Room from Twin Peaks. A clash of comedy and tragedy perhaps. Genesis reappears (as stated). The inspector of ‘Detective Drunk’ comes back in the centre, inspecting the unusually small head of Duke from the Genesis album of the same title. This would be before ‘Invisible Touch’? Please check, Baker Bloch.”

“Okay.”

“And then… so the inspector has found something to actually inspect in this one, Baker Bloch. A real mystery with a real truth within. Patty Duke? Patty is another famous twin cousin through her ‘Patty Duke Show’ from the 60’s. Another thing to check there, Baker Bloch.”

“Mounting up!” he playfully complains.

“The central figure Dale Cooper has one hand over his eyes, as if blinded, and another holding a dart that points to, well, sometimes the viewer of this collage I suppose. Like here LINK.


Gregg Oden or Greg Ogden.

“Or here,” Baker Bloch adds. “Although in checking it’s not quite as obvious in this one.”


“Thank you for inserting those pictures. Do you have the further links I requested?”

“Okay, the ‘Patty Duke Show’ is here, and I can’t remember the other thing you requested.”

“Neither can I. Moving on, then. We have the two hands of ‘Twisted’ reappearing in the present collage. They seem to present the duplicate women to the right and left of the central Dale. Front of hand to right; back of hand to left. This is past and present, like Windom, Kansas (in the present) replaced Laura, Kansas (in the past). This is most likely the action of Bowie in some guise. How powerful is Bowie? He’s possessed poor little Wheeler and sent her to jail (for example). And he wanted Baker Blinker for same. Laura of Twin Peaks is similarly possessed, like with demons. Bowie fought a demon both in Omikron City and, as Little Tonshi Ashokan and perhaps others, in Olde Lapara Towne. That demon’s name there was and still is Astarte, disguised as the name of a Second Life sim (and moth butterfly). You are still running from Astarte. That’s most commonly called Astaroth in Omikron speak, both beginning with ‘a star’. This is Bowie,” Hucka Doobie reinforces.

“Right. Thanks. I suppose I gave Bowie so much power because he’s the star — or will be the star — of several and perhaps many future (audiovisual synchronicities). Beyond ‘Peewee Big’, and beyond ‘One Pink’ which he’s also in as Philllip Jeffries.”

“Heading to Philadelphia instead of Pittsburg, yes. East not west. But still witches all around. Oz.”

“We should end there, Hucka Doobie?”

Hucka Doobie looks again at ‘see title 02’. “Not quite. The (Baker Bloch hands Hucka Doobie a slip of paper) — thank you — *’We Can’t Dance’* figure feeds not a Lamb here, as in ‘Pageturner’, but seems to stroke the seaweed like hair of the unknown woman looming above him — it. Renaldo McDonnell applies hairspray to her hair in the same panel. It’s unusual hair in that it’s glowing. We can assume it’s the same as the seaweed type hair of Old Gregg, more unusual(ness).”

(note: later we both realize it is representation of Olde Gregg’s glowing manjina as well)

“Okay.”

“And then, as I’m looking, even the hand to the extreme left seems to be touching her hair, as if in admiration of its feel and look. But, let’s see, in the right panel, the Renaldo O’Donnell’s hairspray is heading the wrong way — away from the woman’s hair. The attached big hand is forwards instead of backwards (perhaps not admiring so much). Wilson Wheeler Wheeler Wilson again, I would venture. Forwards and backwards. Left and right.”

“What about the dart?” asks Baker Bloch, trying to move the analysis on.

“The dart is pointed at the viewer,” Hucka Doobie repeats. “The viewer could be the same as the woman. You found an Old Gregg avatar in Morrison, along with a Donnie Darko. They may even be lovers created for each other. Maybe tragic lovers. The dart may indicate that the woman is Old Gregg in truth. The other, then, could be Donnie Darko, who appears in the (audiovisual synch) *before* … well not quite before, but in another of your bigger synchs. This weighs in. Bowie knows. Investigate with your investigating feet.”

“Thank you, Hucka Doobie. Good job.”

“Yourself as well.”

Bodega? Analysis 06

“We’re skipping over ‘Danny’s Magical Room’ of the present exhibit to go to ‘Detective Drunk.’

Pink elephant again. Holding a book called Truth, seemingly, which could be the same as character Rocky’s recently published novel called ‘Bible Truth’. He’s another Olde Lapara Towne character, based on the raccoon you found in the town’s central hotel. I believe he was the bellhop.”

“More of a receptionist, actually, if I’m remembering correctly.”

“Anyway, he worked at the hotel (Grand Lapara Hotel) and also lived there, apparently in a crawl space. But then you got him a prim and proper house — of sorts: the small mushroom house still present in Collagesity.”

“Yes.”

“… but then was destroyed by the same atomic explosion we talked about before? Explain it in your own way, Baker Bloch.”

“Well, Rocky is a novelist, with first book published called ‘Bible Truth,’ as you said. Then a play based on the book was created at around the same time. But in *my* book it is stated that Rocky is not the true writer of that. Someone else.”

“But Rocky’s book is based on the McCartney song ‘Rocky Raccoon’. From The Beatles album.”

“From the ‘White Album’, yes,” Baker Bloch clarifies.  “And only afterwards did I learn of Rocket Raccoon, who is apparently super famous these days through those action/adventure movies. Kind of like Salad Bar Jack.” Baker smiles.

“Right. Anyway, back to ‘Detective Drunk,’ a detective, a Sherlock Holmes wannabe, wants to inspect the book and attached pink elephant, but his cliche magnifying glass is instead replaced by a martini. He gets drunk instead of solving mysteries.” Hucka Doobie inspects the collage closer. “And there’s, let’s see, several images of Noel Fielding appearing, one where he is The Moon from ‘Mighty Boosh,’ another personal favorite of yours. Then several more from his Boosh follow-up, ‘Luxury Comedy.'”

“Yes.”

“I must ask: Does he know the Truth? The magnifying glass needed for true inspection has been displaced to (Timmy) Duncan’s face to the left here, creating a faux elephant’s nose. Elephants remember — they store memories away as if in a trunk or dossier. Your Ellie the Elephant, for example, remembers in detail the creation of the parallel Bermingham forest and the moving of the village from (original to doppleganger). ”

“Right.”

“Is (Timmy) an elephant?”

“I don’t know, Hucka Doobie.”

“Anyway, the framing images of ‘Detective Drunk’ are from the ‘Return to Oz’ movie, and, parallel to this, the 2002 synch ‘SID’s 1st Oz’.  This would be Dorothy Gale to the left, and enemy or foe Head Nurse Wilson to the right. Another Wilson. And paired with another Wheeler. For example: here LINK. I would venture that Head Nurse Wilson (note: this is actually Witch Mombi, the Oz equivalent of Head Nurse Wilson in the movie) is your Wheeler in a jail cell, checked in power by Dorothy to the left. This may be Baker Blinker, who has gone through her period of complexity and has emerged fresh and pure in an Oz-like place of sanity and peace. Wheeler is still learning this lesson.”

“Okay.”

“This is Truth.”

“Alright.”

“I think that’s good enough for this one, Baker Bloch, except to say that some of these images reappear in Audrey’s Bar toward the end of the last novel, when Chef/Inspector Petty busts in and demands to know the truth about Renaldo O’Donnell. Another big mystery, and yet to be solved.”

“Another night, as you say. Moving on, Hucka Doobie!”

Bodega? Analysis 05

“‘See title 01b’ recreates or re-imagines the *right* side of the parallel ‘see title o1a’. We’re dealing with half the space of the first, or Lapara across the tracks from the actual town again.  We are getting more information about this planned escape, basically real in the present, or at the completion of the last novel. The pink elephant returns, but as a different image. (The) Black Lodge reappears but with different characters within — those from the another tv show called ‘Gravity Falls’ that has factored in elsewhere (in my writing). See, for example, The Bill. Or starting with the 3rd diary. Anyway, (the characters) are there and for a reason. Also the Man from Another Place’s face has been exposed for what it really is. And we can say here his face was covered in ‘see title 01a’ with another image from ‘Gravity Falls’: that of main male protagonist Dipper Pines. And Dipper’s twin sister takes the place of Windom Earle in the lower right corner. She stares perhaps longingly at the cute, pink elephant. She wants one!”

“Hucka Doobie, the dwarf character seems to be saying something else in the present collage. Not “It is Happening Again,” but perhaps a resolution, or an answer. I think this is the sky island (next to Morrison) again. Laura Palmer in the sky has moved closer to the scene. This is escape through Morrison.”

“Could be, could be.”

[delete 5 exchanges]

“Are we then ready to move on, Hucka Doobie?”

“Yes.”

Bodega? Analysis 04

“We’re at ‘see title 01a’, Baker Bloch. ”

“Which seems to mean in this case the title is ‘It is Happening Again,’ another Twin Peaks reference.  Thought I’d help you a little at the start, Hucka Doobie.”

“Thanks. Before we begin on this, we’ve agreed to go back and explain that ‘Pageturner’ is set in Olde Lapara Towne as well, like the present one. But in that case we have a probable scene in its unofficial *underground* represented: Audrey’s Bar in Grassland. Then ‘Duncanfollower’ temporarily displaces us to VHC City, then it’s back to the OLT underground, at least symbolically, for ‘Twisted’, since the sand dunes depicted therein — actually Jockey’s Ridge from North Carolina, the highest dune on the eastern coast of the United States…”

“I’m checking behind you, Hucka Doobie, and see you are correct there.”

“Thanks again, Baker Bloch. The castle partially buried in the sand actually exists there — not a collage element. And it’s suppose to act, in the collage, as a double to the sand dune with the sand castle that also was in Grassland. And now with ‘see title 01a’ and partnered ‘see title 01b,’ we’re back in Olde Lapara Towne, as stated. So this is largely about that city you have just moved these collages from. In the present one we have pictured an *escape*. Olde Lapara Towne spreads out to the left here. A bomb seems to have gone off in its southeast quadrant, perhaps of an atomic nature. What appears to be a fireball — again possibly nuclear in origin — falls from the sky. The left side of ‘see title 01a’ depicts chaos in OLT. The right side, which represents the northern suburbs across the tracks *not* owned by Levi Clownski and Shoshi, is relatively calm, although shed in a strange light. We have Twin Peaks villain Windom Earle returning, and also the smaller exposed Laura in the owl symbol — that’s actually on the left side again. Then more Twin Peaks stuff appears to the right:  the Black Lodge where Laura and the Dwarf (Man from Another Place) meet up with main Twin Peaks protagonist, FBI Agent Dale Cooper, yet another member of the Blue Rose team with Earle and Jeffries (Bowie). The dwarf with a different head tattooed on top of his own reappears in ‘see title 01a’ in the picture block above this. Through a speech bubble we understand he utters the perhaps hidden title of the collage: ‘It is Happening Again,’ which refers, in the Twin Peaks universe, to the murder of Laura’s ‘twin cousin’ Maddy Ferguson, who is basically indistinguishable from Laura Palmer except for different colored hair and also the wearing of glasses. Are your hands alright?”

“Yes, Hucka Doobie. Thank you.”

“Then there’s a pink elephant and a ram on a Black Lodge like couch — by that, I mean it seems to have a similar pattern as the floor of the Black Lodge, a distinguishing characteristic. And I believe this image came up accidentally, we’ll say, through a search for ‘Phillip Jeffries’ in Google images. If you would check that please, Baker Bloch, while I continue my spiel, ha ha.”

“Sure thing, Hucka Doobie.”

“The pink elephant represents a parallel, smaller town to Olde Lapara in the Morrison sim. You were thinking about creating an avatar from a freebie pink elephant and then just ran across one — accident again — in Rockabilly Cafe in Morrison and deemed the encounter meaningful. Since then, you understand it was fate to be in the Rockabilly and attached small(er) town for a spell. Wheeler actually went in first [delete 2 sentences].”

“I found it, Hucka Doobie. Phillip Jeffries is also the name of a wall covering company, described on its website as a world leader in this dealing.”

“Good. Did you find the specific image with the couch?”

“Not directly, Hucka Doobie. Sorry.”

“That’s all right. Readers can make similar searches on their own. The point is the couch was there when you searched for transparent images of ‘Phillip Jeffries.’ But why a Ram on the couch? This points again to Genesis’ ‘Lamb’ album (‘Lamb Lies Down on Broadway’), and the simultaneous death of Ram and Lamb in the center of the derivative ‘Tronesis’, your February 2003 synch.”

“Ram equals Lamb, yes.”

“And we should mention that the nuclear explosion thingie to the left taking out a swathe of OLT seemingly is another Phillip Jeffries related image. It’s actually a couple of light fixtures. This reminded you of an explosion, hence the seed of the current collage since you already wrote about an explosion in this same spot in town at the end of part 1 (of the ‘Collagesity 2017 Middle’ graphic novel). You can insert that image here… it will help.

So you’re just using the same base photo over again. This comes from another blog, actually. We should credit it LINK. In the blog, then, this initial explosion represented escape from Olde Lapara Towne and heading into the high hills looming above it to ultimately meet Tonshi Ashokan, who describes herself later as… well, if you’ll help me out here again Baker and we’ll get back to that.”

“Right. I’ll check.”

“Anyway, the plan in the blog at this time was to leave Olde Lapara Towne after part 1 (of 6) of the graphic novel and never return, perhaps moving the action of the story to this Ratcliff, which didn’t turn out. Or possibly Collagesity or back to VHC City or just another town, period. Away from OLT. But you, through your characters, ended up returning, and then eventually moving down into the underground for more action and adventure (in the second half of the novel). You found reasons to stay.

Now the present collage is about leaving again, but this time for real. ‘It is Happening Again.’ And the novel ends with this same, exact explosion being depicted in the background. Another link there please. LINK”

“Where are we going beyond OLT? we must then ask. At one point it appeared it could be Morrison and this town created around the Rockabilly Cafe there. But Wheeler went in first and got in trouble with the mayor. And then you’ve had more recent encounters, Baker Bloch.”

“Yes.”

“But it extends to other towns as well: Ratcliff has its own story to tell as a possible destination of escape. VHC City as well — another place where not Wheeler but *you* got in some hot water. Deep hot water.”

“(It felt as) hot as jalapeno peppers, yeah.”

“And you can’t return there.”

“No,” answers Baker Bloch. “Duncan might. I think that’s the plan for the current novel.”

“Going along with the elements of ‘Pageturner,’ good.”

“But we have to get Paul, the white example, out of this stoner haven Hana Lei.”

“Story for another night. But I think the escape here is encapsulated in Morrison, since you have property there and set up a parallel Twin Peaks Black Lodge on a sky island there, correct?”

“Yes. Supposedly Buster doubles as the dwarf, a role he didn’t relish actually. Mike Anderson.”

“We better end this post and go to another.”

“One more and we’ll end tonight, Baker Bloch. Baker b.”

“Thanks. Okay.”

“We’re at ‘Twisted’. This refers physically to the twisted appearance of David Bowie’s tie in the lower center. But it also represents a twisted, tortured soul. Bowie’s appearance is matched with a cartoon version of Twin Peaks character Windom Earle, not seen in The Return LINK.”

“No. He didn’t make the cut, apparently.”

“But Bowie did, or wanted to anyway. Although not specifically an image of his Twin Peaks’ character Phillip Jeffries, the fact that his suit matches Windom Earle’s is indicative of such.”

“Meaning that this is suppose to represent Phillip Jeffries, because both Windom Earle and Phillip Jeffries served in the FBI on the Blue Rose Project headed by Gordon Cole. That character (Cole) is played by David Lynch in Twin Peaks.”

(note: later Windom Earle went insane and started torturing and killing people; Phillip Jeffries may have done the same, although the show and attached movie leaves this unsettled.)

“Right, Baker Bloch. This is David Bowie. This is Phillip Jeffries. In one. And to the left: Laura Palmer, but with face covered by a symbol of an owl’s head.”

“And a hand,” says Baker, looking on.

“And a hand. Another hand seems to insert Windom Earle into the collage. We must assume this is either the same hand, or the opposite hand of the same 4th Wall being. This is yourself, most likely. Or yourself as baker b. the collagist. Collagesity collagist.”

(note: Hucka Doobie, after reading this post, clarified that these hands represent The Oracle as a whole through a fused Laura and Windom.)

“Right.”

“And there’s a smaller owl representation in the sky, with Laura’s head revealed inside this time. This is the younger Laura, the one in seasons 1 and 2. The older Laura from season 3, The Return, is instead obscured. This is not the same Laura. We find out that at the end of The Return. Twin Peaks symbols abound in both the collages here but most importantly in the current novel. Jacob I. — Jacobi Jacoby, the psychiatrist of Twin Peaks, who is from Hanalei, Hawaii. He wore blue and red lensed glasses. He is associated with a broken heart locket, which he stole half of from (Laura’s boyfriend James). It was suppose to represent her and James, but Jacobi loved Laura too. A number of townspeople loved Laura [delete 2 sentences].”

“I’d say they’re in different spheres.”

“Good enough. Like the 2 Lauras of the collage? Something to ponder, perhaps.” Hucka Doobie pauses. “Anyway, moving on — old and new Laura, exposed and hidden. Like Hidden Village. What do you call that in real life?”

[delete 3 exchanges]

“Right,” says Hucka Doobie. “The missing ‘l’ of Village is clear indication that The Oracle is, um, indicating. And to oppose this: New Lynne. This is kind of Olde Lapara Towne, the setting of (‘Collagesity 2017 Middle’). And (‘Collagesity 2017 Later’) is set in Hidden Village, or started out there. And will continue there, I suppose (Baker nods). Hidden Village is centred by Central Park. This is where Improvio becomes Jeffrie Phillips. This is a reversal of Phillip Jeffries. This is Bowie, once more. Centre. Oracle.”

“We better end soon, Hucka Doobie. Starbucks will be opening in 15 minutes.”

Hucka Doobie scans the collage again. “The sand castle obviously resonates with the one in the Grassland dunes formerly underneath Audrey’s Bar in Olde Lapara Towne, now deleted to make room for, well, these collages we’re analyzing now.”

“Correct.”

“But now it’s returned… Collagesity.”

“Thank you, Hucka Doobie. We’ll be talking soon.”

“Ahh. ‘Duncanfollower’. Another portmanteau like ‘Pageturner.’ Who is the Duncan of the title and why would we be following him? This is Duncan Avocado, now half of Paul with the other half white: Even Whiter Walt. The white half and black half are the two sims of Olde Lapara Towne, joined like different races. But here we have just Duncan (to the left). What does that tell us? That we are in the future here. Woody Allen looks on (at Duncan).”

“We’re talking about Timmy Duncan now, Hucka Doobie.”

“Correct. Woody Allen looks at or toward Timmy Duncan who is kind of glued to the side of the Hotel Chelsea over in VHC City, the place where you were exorcised from.”

“Pitch Darkly was expelled,” clarifies Baker Bloch.

“Whatever. I was too in tandem with yourself.”

“No. You can return. *I* really can’t.”

“Whatever,” emphasizes Hucka Doobie. “‘Woody Allen’ is another composite name, representing your shapeshifting friend Woody Woodmanson but also Old Man Allen Martin, God rest his soul.”

“Dead, yeah. Don’t think he can come back. Heart attack in the underground. Death. Wheeler knew.”

“Yes. Allen Martin is dead. He loved Wheeler, as The Musician did as well. And still does. But they’ve changed sexes? I’m a little confused about all that.”

“So am I!” confesses Baker Bloch.

“Back to Duncan: Woody Allen looks on, which we know is the death of Allen Martin in VHC City’s underground because Woody Woodmanson changes into Allen Martin just before that. You can put another link there if you choose. Woody to Allen. But behind Woody is the purple clad angel Raziel, which brings to mind Rael, the lead character of ‘Lamb’.”

“Yes.”

“And then a giant purple rose is also attached to this group of images, referring to Woody Allen’s film ‘The Purple Rose of Cairo,’ famous for breaking the 4th Wall.”

“One of the characters of the film within the film, the namesake ‘Rose’ movie, steps out of the film within the film and just becomes part of the film. It’s like if you stepped out of Second Life, Hucka Doobie, and went back to First Life again.”

“I don’t have a body (any more up there).”

“Then *this* body. You would look strange walking around.”

“I would prefer to borrow someone else’s body. I will be reborn, you know. Charles Nelson Blinkerton is not dead, only resting.”

“Let’s not go down that road tonight, Hucka Doobie. Back to analysis…”

Hucka Doobie turns toward the collage again. “‘Duncanfollower’… Then behind or on the opposite corner of the building Woody stands in front of is a seemingly more maleficent figure with sickly green wings. This is malefic; golden winged Woody is benefic.”

“Jupiter and Saturn again.”

“This is the hiding aspect of, well, yourself as Baker Bloch. And Pitch Darkly as you prefer. This is the side you can’t show in VHC City.”

“Or anywhere, really.”

“I’m not talking about that side (you’re thinking about). I’m talking about The Diagonal, the Triple Number 97, the Pitch Black property, all real things. VHC City, or the powers that be there, don’t want to buy into (that mythology).”

(note: afterwards Hucka Doobie sees he forgot to talk about the Pitch Black structure appearing in this collage and will return to that important aspect later.)

“No, I would assume not.”

“Else things could be different.”

“Yes, I suppose they could.”

“But,” continues Hucka Doobie,” you have The Oracle to aid you. You’ll always have The Oracle. Even after the end of your US of A.”

“Yes.”

“The Oracle told you that the man who created the virtual version of the Hotel Chelsea is named Sikul Hamikt. The one presently managing the property is Vainom Kug. That was suppose to be Wheeler, as the former is The Musician, or, what’s he called now?”

“Earie,” states Baker Bloch. “But he was always Earie, I’m assuming.”

“He is also Sikul Hamikt.”

“But only in dreams.”

“Good enough.” Hucka Doobie studies the collage again. “So I think it’s pretty laid out. Duncan Avocado must return to VHC City and head into the hotel, perhaps to the Nancy Room. Room 100 I believe (Baker nods). Maybe The Musician, who is a punk now after all, will follow him. Or take his place.”

“Up in the air, still.”

“We better move on.”

Bodega? Analysis 01

“It’s been a while since I — or baker b. — created this one, Hucka Doobie. May be difficult to analyze at this late date.”

“I’ll do the talking now,” requests Hucka Doobie. “First off, this is ‘Pageturner’, created to open the second half of ‘Collagesity 2017 Middle’. You can insert a link there. This collage shows the dominance of ‘Lamb’ in Genesis’ catalog of albums. Peter Gabriel knew it was bigger than all the rest. So did the other members of Genesis who remained after its conception. Everyone knew.”

“‘Lamb’ is part of ‘Tronesis’ now, Hucka Doobie. Is that a good thing to say at this point?”

“Sure. Lamb and Ram die at the same moment at the very center of that audiovisual synchronicity, which dates from, let’s see, 2003. February I believe (Baker nods). That is the opening Tronesisia and Peter SoSo need to work forwards and backwards within the synch respectively. They are responsible for *that* analysis and absorption.”

“Cool.”

“‘Pageturner’ represents the creation of a new page in the ‘Collagesity 2017 Middle’ graphic novel. It — the post containing it, opens the 2nd half of the novel. You can insert another link there if you wish. Genesis plays in front of Audrey’s Bar, or on the side, the same — well, it’s just below us now, on the first floor of the market. Peter Gabriel — lead singer — is in some sort of costume, or at least wears some kind of mask. He stands between two representations of ‘lesser’ Genesis albums above him: ‘Foxtrot’, left, and ‘Duke’, right. Both will reappear in the end collage of this series. We should talk of a name. All the characters on the side of Audrey’s Bar represent Genesis albums. ‘Lamb’ looms, as I’ve said. The name above them reads Genesiso. The extra ‘o’ at the end points to ‘So’, Peter Gabriel’s most famous solo album and the one which brought him fame and fortune on par with the rest of Genesis who remained ‘behind’, as it were.”

“You mentioned a name for the series, Hucka Doobie.”

“Yes.”

“Wouldn’t this still be Bogota? I’m unsure.”

“As you realize, this series is a bit different. It was created organically to follow the story generated within the second half of the ‘Collagesity 2017 Early’ novel. Series before it generated energy on their own, or in tandem with a factual analysis. Not in the case of Bogota. Not (really) since you began composing Collagesity novels starting in November 2015? (Baker nods). Bogota is different.”

“So is this still Bogota?” Baker repeats.

Hucka Doobie puts his round, yellow bee hand to chin. “Let’s get back to that. Returning to ‘Pageturner’, we have Gideon, who is the same as Buster, floating or hovering angelic over The Bible, which probably is another Gideon — Gideon’s Bible, mentioned in the Beatles’ song ‘Rocky Raccoon.’ Now the whole Buster-Nancy-Danny-Bettie cluster of names and characters comes from the characters of the song. Kind of fleshed out, I suppose.”

“Something like that,” agrees Baker.

“The figure reaching out of the bar with large yellow arm is the ‘Pageturner’ of the title, who has just turned a page of the Bible in front of him. This is Peter Gabriel again, or one — actually two — of his stage characters. The arm belongs to the glopman character. The head-in-flower to another.”

“Actually, Hucka Doobie, I believe they’re called slippermen in the ‘Lamb’ album.”

“Insert a picture and let’s move on.

What are these slippermen, then? They are glopmen, though, yes?”

“I guess so Hucka Doobie. That’s a Mythos idea and Mythos ideas don’t translate well to this blog.”

“Sure they do,” counters Hucka Doobie. “Slippermen (characters; song) come from ‘Lamb’, just as this character emerges from a caricature of a lamb drawn on the side of Audrey’s bar — its front. The arm represents another of its own arms, or legs.”

“Perhaps interesting.”

“The ‘Lamb’ appears to be eating from the hand of another album representation. Their most successful I believe. ‘Invisible Touch’.”

“I’m checking now, Hucka Doobie, and the name of the album that image is from is called ‘We Can’t Dance’, dating from 1991. It is their last album before Phil Collins left the band to pursue his own solo career. And although it is the Genesis album immediately after ‘Invisible Touch’, their highest selling album, the release date is 5 years later. Success breeds creative complacency?”

“Maybe. Anyway, all serve ‘Lamb’, no matter their selling status. They feed and nurture ‘Lamb’, even from the future.”

“As well as the past,” Baker clarifies. “‘Foxtrot’ and its ‘Supper’s Ready’ and so on.”

“And that’s now synched with ‘Green Acres’. Pretty bizarre, eh?” Both Hucka Doobie and Baker Bloch smile. “And the woman perched atop the bar — a ‘Lamb’ analyzer. Like Tronesisia and Peter SoSo in a way. Is this Tronesisia?”

“I don’t know,” states Baker Bloch.

“We better move on.”
