Baker Blinker Blog Book II: Pre-Jeogeot II 01a (Oct/Nov 2008 01 of 02)


Gallery Sights, 1 of 2 (Garden)

Before I got a chance to write the text to this post, the whole Rubi gallery had been remodelled…. again! The garden part most pictured in this first post (of 2), however, remains somewhat the same. The grounds now, as of 11/8, are expanded since I’ve deleted all of the Arcadia Asylum subway stuff except for the actual 50 meter tunnel itself.

I did want to provide some pictures of the little garden I set up beside the subway tunnel, on the west side of the grounds. There’s what one could call an actual center to the landscaping efforts in this particular version (continued into the next version, with a 2nd center added, even). The original Rubi gallery was so full of gallery space on the ground level that there was little room left for landscaping of this kind. I thought this part was worthy of a little blog space, then.

Above you can see a glimpse into this “center”, which includes a tiny waterfall falling from a crimped pipe of some kind into a small pool. Surrounding this waterfall are 4 large upright rocks, arranged in a kind of Stonehenge fashion around the falls. These rocks (and also the water in the falls) are actually what remains of the Luna Bliss waterfall that use to be on the bottom level of the temple, but whose parts I accidentally delinked with deleting one of the versions of the Temple of TILE. But I found I had some cool looking 1 prim rocks to set up on my property as a consolation.

Below is a picture of Baker Bloch atop a grunge water tower I set up in the very sw corner of the properties, an object which also made the transition to the newest version of the gallery. He looks up toward the Victorian houses that now have a lot of additional buildings/objects rooting them to the Rubi ground. More on these in a minute.

Closeups of the falls I’ve already mentioned. I suppose I would call them Butterfly Falls for obvious reasons if I had to come up with a name. The tombstone in front from this angle has now been moved to the east side of my Rubi properties and coupled with another tombstone to make a little cemetery.


Looking through the crimped pipe toward the relaxed Baker Bloch in the science fiction related Star Treky chair.

NOOB statue looks directly down upon Baker Bloch as he sits at the tiny falls. I can’t remember if I’ve talked about it here, but that house the NOOB statue stands next to is the same as the first Azure Island house, when Baker Bloch and Baker Blinker were very much noobs themselves — they still have aspects of noobiness but they’re working on the problem.

As you can also tell, the middle part of the house has been greatly extended upward to accomodate particles emitting from a mysterious sphere situated in the middle of the old main room. In the latest version this is found inside the hull of The Arab now.

View of Baker Bloch, still in his chair, from the property to the west. The vegetation is thick here (still is).


Gallery Sights, 2 of 2 (Gallery)

So this whole lower part of the Rubi gallery containing my Greenup collage series has been moved over to the Tyta properties — the brown tile part. Glad I was able to take some pictures before the transition. I like the way the spiral walkway is framed by one of the front windows here.

Baker Bloch at what was then the top of the spiral, entering the lower photograph level. This part is still at Rubi, although the spiral has been extended upward and also downward. Now you can walk the spiral into both the photography level above this one and also one more level, which would be the second level of the temple itself now.

I like this view out the windows of Zarek’s TILE colored platforms. How deliciously synchy!

Baker Bloch sits in the foray behind the 2 photography levels of that older version. From this draw distance you can get an idea of the size of all this mess added together. It was quite a collage of disparate objects! (and still is to a somewhat lesser degree)

More view of the towering gallery system. Those Victorian houses at the top remain in the exact same position in the newest version, except they are now encased by the temple itself. The lowest levels of the subway galleries, the old Azure house, and the brown tile part have all been removed, with most of rebuilt in Tyta.

Oh… can’t remember if I’ve mentioned this or not but the Edwardston Station Gallery is the name of the *Tyta* gallery now, not the one remaining in Rubi. The Rubi gallery, now solely composed of Edna’s photo collections (plus a small Klutzy Kamper collection in one room), is instead called The Gallery at the Temple of TILE.


Chatting w/ D. and possible that Smithy person…

“Are you there Hucka D.?”

Hucka D.:

Yo.

bb:

Is Smithy around tonight?

Hucka D.:

Sho nuf.

bb:

Are you feeling well tonight Hucka D.? You haven’t been inworld in a while.

Hucka D.:

Don’t need to. Always there, you know. Where’s Baker Blinker, then?

bb:

Where’s Grassy, for that matter?

Hucka D.:

Esbum was around today. Poking around the central pool of The Citadel [on the new island]. More observant that your bud Baker Bloch for sure.

bb:

Thanks for that. Do you have some words to say about the new island?

Hucka D.:

Go back.

bb:

Thanks again. So… we’re on the cusp of phaze 9 of this blog.

Hucka D.:

Yup.

bb:

What will that entail, I wonder?

Hucka D.:

Pluto. Beyond the beyond. Dark Dorothy…

bb:

I suppose you can’t tell me if the Wheeler collage series is next?

Hucka D.:

Egan.

bb:

Ben?

Hucka D.:

Klutzy.

bb:

Bear?

Hucka D.:

Collage.

bb:

Begin the…

Hucka D.:

Smithy is here.

Smithy:

Mossman. Forest. Second. Life again. Rebirth. Healed.

bb:

Smithy, do you know about Wheeler?

Smithy:

Smithy sees a bear.

bb:

Smithy, I think I should go inworld again. But maybe GoogleEarth instead of SL.

Hucka D.:

You do that.

bb:

Hucka D., where should I put the Wheeler series?

Hucka D.:

In the galleries.

bb:

But where?

Hucka D.:

Bear. Egan. Collage. Staring…

bb:

Thank you.


SF

“Hucka D., I was wondering if I could talk to S.F. through this blog?”

Hucka D.:

You may indeed. Here he is…

SF:

Hi.

bb:

Thank you for being present tonight SF. We haven’t talked in quite a while. Now to introduce you, you are obviously some kind of guardian or overseer of the 10×10 process, guiding it, most explainably, through the square overlapping the entire [circular] 10×10. 25 collages apart… that is, the 10×10 is made up of 100 collages, which is divided into 4 equal parts of 25 collages in a logical fashion. But this division doesn’t begin at the beginning, but 10 collages in.

SF:

I am old.

bb:

You appear in each equidistant corner, er, quarter.

SF:

I killed you yet you did not die.

bb:

Do you know of the TILE waterfall?

SF:

You forget.

bb:

Did 9 have to become 1 instead of 8?

SF:

[delete name] is reborn.

bb:

Is he in Gill’s Pier, Michigan?

SF:

T…

bb:

Can you help me with Egan and Map?

SF (softly):

Ben.

bb:

Haystack, perhaps? The Haystacks?

SF:

Mythos. Arab.

bb:

Do you know of the Mmmmmm’s?

SF:

Old.

bb:

Mossmen?

SF:

Quarter. I control. Corners… ville.

bb:

Did you pluck Wet Rock from the stone circle?

SF:

Put it back.

bb (to Hucka D.):

Hucka D., should we go look at these quartered collages, all of SF?

Hucka D.:

Most definitely!

bb (to the reader):

There’ll be only 3 of the 4 sets complete. The 4th will come midway through the Wheeler series. That’s why I felt the need to talk to SF tonight. SF is at all the corners.

Hucka D.:

SF controls.

*****

bb:

Hucka D., before we begin, I’m curious: is SF a rock god?

Hucka D.:

Zeppelin.


SF, 2

bb:

SF, can you tell me more about Mythos currently? I have read over our last set of conversations. Obviously we can’t talk a lot about much of the information therein. You were pretty chatty then. Can you still talk in this forum about those kind of issues? Especially Mythos?

*****

bb:

Sorry I got sidetracked again SF. I was looking at this document about a reputed history of Atlantis on the spiritmythos site.

SF:

Ok.

bb:

Mythos is a so-called forbidden planet in the primary Sirius solar system. Can you tell us more about Sirius and why the planet is quarantined?

SF:

Arab. Contents.

bb:

Is the Arab at the bottom of the Ross Sea?

SF:

1 box in particular. Nautilus.

bb:

Oh. The Arab and Nautilus City are tied together?

SF:

Crystals.

bb:

Are they Atlantean crystals?

SF:

Power mismanaged. Then control. Grid control. A circle spinning… out of control.

*****

“Squaring of the circle! Just like we seem to have — or at least the symbolic representation occurs there — in the central city of Nautilus island.”

SF:

It is there. Control. Grid. Squaring the circle.

bb:

There are a number of things which caught my eye when running down the list of uses for the Atlantean crystals from that cystalinks.com site page. Teleportation and dematerialization, for one. But the use of crystals to store information, like a library, is one that perked my interest the most at the time. I see the gallery as a library of sorts, a glorified web site [itself]. The Edwardston Station Gallery site will encompass the art 10×10 but also the writing 10×10 standing behind it, and all other works clustered around the art 10×10.

SF:

Cluster.

bb:

Is the art 10×10, then, such a center, the central crystal?

SF:

I control. 4-square. 10-35-60-85. You are almost at 85, the 4th. Y.

bb:

Obviously Hucka D. and I need to look at those collages you refer to here quite closely in the coming days.

SF:

Squared circle.

bb:

Was The Arab itself suppose to be in the central pool of the Citadel? Or in another probability is it there instead of the much smaller, wrecked vessel? With the pink crystals?

SF:

You must look at probabilities. Pink.

*****

bb:

Sorry, I was looking over information in this next Atlantean crystal related link from the spiritmythos site. Can you talk about the Kali Rift or do you know about this?

SF:

Probabilities. Splintering effect. Separation of mutable from more permanent. Sirius.

bb:

Thank you.


Loose Thoughts…

It did occur to me tonight while walking around the gallery properties (both Wright House Gallery and then the Edwardston Station Gallery across the forest) that I could consolidate the Edwardston Station Gallery with the Wright House Gallery at the location of the *latter*. This never occurred to me before, probably because I didn’t think I had enough prims at that location to make the deal. But now I believe I do. I would have to separate Edna’s (& Klutzy’s) photographs from my own collages, but I think Edna will understand — Klutzy, at this point, doesn’t care I don’t believe (kind of sad). Edna will understand because it will be saving her money as well, once I sell the Rubi properties. But I don’t want to just sell them for any old price.

If I do this, and it is probably a go at this point (knowing me and my natural instincts), then what would happen is the station and then the orange brick part of the gallery would be moved across the forest, leaving the two photography levels behind — actually that would be 4 levels, counting the back addition (levels 4, 5, 6, 7). Then I’d move the kiosk for the Edwardston Station Gallery across the road to the Tyta properties. The Wright House Gallery would then become the photography gallery — put it under photography in the gallery listing. Edwardston Station Gallery would remain a “gallery”, since the collages inside are more art than photography.

Then I could reconstruct, at least temporarily, the TILE Temple on the Rubi properties, as Hucka D. has suggested recently. Can’t forget about TILE.

I think this sounds like a plan (once again). My collages of the 10×10, perhaps accompanied by my pre-digital collages, if I have room, will be consolidated in Tyta. Then photography can be shown in Rubi. Heck, Edna can think of her own name for that gallery — obviously doesn’t have to be the Wright House Gallery. Ground level will be a garden, extending what I already have there.

Edna will understand, especially if I put the Rubi property up for sale once more. But I don’t have to. Could even sell the bottom part of the property (1024) and offer to the new neighbor. Maybe split a 512 off the remaining 2048 to the east. Sell that. Temple of TILE would be next to the wooden monstrosity (hey, isn’t that suppose to be a church (“temple”) itself?

Temple, if so, would be *sealed* essentially.

*****

10-28:

Yes, I’ve now downsized and consolidated the Edwardston Station Gallery (lower 2 levels) with the Wright House Gallery. All art by Baker B. (Baker Bloch + Baker Blinker in SL) is located in the Edwardston Station Gallery, now in *Tyta*. I haven’t decided if I want to sell the Rubi properties but I don’t know why I won’t now.

It’s a shame about Edna’s photos but Baker Blinker still has ’em in her inventory and the photography levels can be recreated easily enough. Simplified all notecards, instead pointing those interested in more complicated material (ie, history of Edwardston Station, background of the “10×10”) to the future Edwardston Station Gallery. That’s a project on the horizon now, and it won’t be just the art and the 10×10, but writing behind that and also maybe even music and a/v synching.

Let’s bring in Hucka D., perhaps briefly, to chat some more on this. Hucka?

Hucka D.:

[no answer]

bb:

I have a strange feeling that Hucka D. wants me to keep the Rubi property, though, even though he’s not answering me directly. I wonder why he would… of course, TILE, the Temple.

Hucka D.:

Think things through very carefully before you leave Rubi. I directed you there, remember? Temple. TILE.

bb:

It’s good, though, that all the 10×10 collages are now located in Tyta. That I’m sure of.

Hucka D.:

Dark Dorothy.

bb:

Hucka D., do you want to look through Baker Bloch’s eyes at those SF related collages now?

Hucka D.:

Very soon.

bb:

Is SF pleased that the collages are all located in Tyta now?

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

Hucka D., why should I re-create the Temple of TILE, if that’s what you’re wanting me to do? In Rubi, I mean?

Hucka D.:

Tyta consolidation is good. The Edwardston Station Gallery still borders Rubi. That’s ok and good and how it should be at this point. Consolidation. But once the gallery is removed from Rubi then other things can move in. The photos remain. Photos [new gallery?] plus the Temple of TILE remnants which should perhaps be clothed in the temple again. And also: The Arab.

bb:

Hucka D., I think I’m going to sell the Rubi properties still. I have a lot of other projects to work on, and it’s more a matter of focus now. But admittedly I have absolutely no wiggle room for building at Tyta.

Hucka D.:

The Temple must be rebuilt. Maybe you should read your blog front to back again. See how hard, again, it was to find the Temple of TILE in the first place.

*****

bb:

Sorry Hucka D. Got sidetracked.

Hucka D.:

Wow, that’s unusual.

bb:

I was walking around the new gallery again. I like it! 1 prim left now, though.

Hucka D.

Goodbye.


The Arab Found! (And Much More!)

In a rather incredible aboutface, decided to keep the Rubi property after integrating a photography gallery into the rebuilt Temple of TILE. The name of the gallery (logically enough): The Gallery at The Temple of TILE. Already listed in the SL art gallery list as such (live database).

*Now* my art (basically collages) and Edna’s art (essentially photographs) are in separate galleries… separate yet still pretty close, with only a sub-sim sized forest separating the two. Draw your view distance out to 256 meters and you can see one from the other.

*****

Let’s just talk with Hucka D. on this subject, if he’s once again willing.

Hucka D.:

Just call.

bb:

Hello Hucka D. and happy Halloween.

Hucka D.:

Same to you sir.

bb:

You sound happier than the other night for certain.

Hucka D.:

I had to help press you into rebuilding the temple. The temple is important. Very much so. You did good. Edna is pleased as well.

bb:

Do you want to talk about any of the attached subjects? Obviously, I think the temple floating above the giant cross on the ground is of some significance.

Hucka D.:

Yes, The Arab formed the cross. Very interesting indeed. What do you think it means?

bb:

I think it stands for the cross of Christianity and all the attached, um, baggage. The temple rises above all that because it is not really a religion, although it has that aspect. It is, instead, a game/philosophy/religion, with philosophy having to have over a 50 percent cut in the deal at any one time.

Hucka D.:

What is the power source, then? The clear blue orb that emits so many of those particles in an hour’s time?

bb:

It must be attached to the mystery of The Arab in general. I merely centered the hole in the ship to contain this orb, and “accidentally” formed the giant cross on the land. That would be about 60 meters by 40 meters or so, I believe. So the power source seems directly tied into the cross motif.

Hucka D.:

It is the freeing of crystallized energy within Christianity itself. And this energy continually zooms toward the temple above. The ship also emits smoke particles from its smokestack on top of that. But the orb is the key.

bb:

I believe I’ve theorized it may be a representation of Earth, or perhaps the Mythos planet.

Hucka D.:

The two are tied, though.

bb:

It’s also squaring the circle again, I suppose, since the sphere was fitted into a square hole in the ship. Dark and light as well. Baby blue. See through. I only mention that because the word “Arnold” is now on the *front* of the Temple of TILE*

Hucka D. (prompting): Also…?

bb:

Um, The Wall. The song with the phrase “baby blue” in it. And The Arab may have been built at The Great Wall in Ziczac. Ziczac-zoe. Could it have sort of teleported down through The Great Wall to Rubi?

Hucka D.:

Oblio. Earth.

bb:

The Point of The Wall. Oblio is a symbol of Earth. Baby blue. The first song of the synch. Then we have, next up in the synch, the song “Goodbye Blue Sky”, as Oblio leaves the home nest to eventually reach the Pointless Forest.

Hucka D.:

He leaves The Arab. (pause) Whatever, the orb is Oblio. Round on the ends. High in the middle. Point.

bb:

Hucka D., I have a feeling we are entering some totally different space.

Hucka D.:

That is true enough. I’m so so glad you rebuilt the Temple. It will take you far.

bb:

I’m going to take a look at that ship again. I may get back to you tonight.

Hucka D.:

Ok.

*****

*****

bb:

Hucka D., I’m also thinking that this reminds me of the movie Sphere and the connected synchronicity MessiaenSphere. There was a ship in that movie that also carried an “alien” orb, the only thing alien about it, as it turned out. Much to the disappointment of the alien exploring crew sent down there to investigate. They thought the whole ship was of alien origin when it was in fact an American ship, but from the future. Encountered a black hole, perhaps caused by that sphere in the first place. Displaced ship again.

Hucka D.:

Harry went inside. Then Jerry showed up. Jules Verne again. Monster.

bb:

Taking it a step beyond the twin Messiaen Trek, if intellectually and not particularly aesthetically.

Hucka D.:

The Sphere talked back. It wanted to communicate. but instead it was turned into a *Monster*.

bb:

Hucka D., can we talk to the sphere on The Arab?

Hucka D.:

Not quite yet. SF is available, though.

bb:

Alright, that’ll do. SF?

SF:

Yes.

bb:

You mentioned Mythos and The Arab the other night in our chatting then. Can you tell me more now that The Arab has manifested on the Rubi land and formed a giant cross with the subway there?

SF:

Squaring of the circle again. I am at all corners. Control.

bb:

Are you the same as The Arab, then?

Hucka D.:

SF does not wish to talk further tonight, but another night he will.

bb:

Can you then answer more questions about The Arab tonight, Hucka D.? Or the temple, perhaps?

Hucka D.:

Power source. Energy, but needs to be controlled. *Cornered*.

bb:

This is where 9 becomes 1 instead of 8, isn’t it?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Point. Wall. *SID*.

bb:

Thank you.


Loose Thoughts, Galleries (& Pictures!)

Baker Bloch finds this mysteriously place filing cabinet near the center of the long subway tunnel centering, in turn, the properties as a whole. It is roughly positioned under the center of The Arab as well. Have we determined that this is actually the lost ship The Arab, found 1/2 mile from the Current River on Sinking Creek in Missouri [at Camp Zoe, or near there]? Appears so. Nothing in this filing cabinet though… yet.

Baker then walks around the south end of the tunnel to the newer landscaped area, freed up by the removal of the Edwardston Station Gallery bits from the Rubi properties (more on the new Edwardston Station Gallery later…).

“Queer. This is that old, broken tv from the Ross Sea Arab ship,” Baker Bloch thinks. “What’s it doing underneath *this* Arab?”

A just plain weird little cemetery, if that’s what it is. It almost looks like the tree erupted from the ground here *after* the cemetery was created, making the little hillock in the process and displacing the several headstones. Another odd thing is the Holy Bible in the water just underneath the more crooked of the two visible headstones: the Bible has a cross on it and the gravestone is shaped like a cross. The second headstone of the more usual shape also has a smaller cross engraved upon it. A triangle of crosses, then.

There’s more to this story but I’ll leave it at that for now.

Baker looks up at the towering tree and attached spiral walkway.

A look back at where Baker Bloch rounded the corner of the subway. A tight fit between the subway and the neighbor’s ban lines there, and if those palm trees weren’t set to “phantom” he probably could walk it. The passageway is probably about as wide as he is tall.

Looks like Baker’s decided to head up the spiral for more pictures. Suppose we’ll follow, then!


Gallery Pictures, Level 1

I’m not sure if I ever put a description of the photography levels of the former version of this gallery in my blog here, but I’ll remedy that now to a degree. The lowest level of the gallery holds Edna’s Land of Oz photos. There are a bunch of them,close to 30 at last count. They are comprised of photos taken at both the 2007 and 2008 festivals held annual at Beech Mountain. We go every year, and haven’t missed one in, oh, probably 13 years running now. So if I decide to keep this SL gallery, safe to say more Oz related photos will be added to this collection.

The structure itself is just a modified free house I found in the same “Box of Free Buildings” as the Azure Island’s house (Mysti’s Big Blue House) and also the Wright House (called: ______). Basically speaking, the west half of this level is the full house itself, and then the east half is just the house inverted and joined to the west double. The east half has also been edited to make room for the spiral walkway, which allows access to this level and also the levels above from the ground level. The second level of what’s now a part of The Gallery at The Temple of TILE is simply the bottom level turned on top of itself and then edited — the same design idea I used in creating the old Wright House Gallery (now the skybox for the Edwardston Station Gallery moved to Tyta).

This is something different from the last version: walls colored red, green and blue found in what could be called a foyer of this level, which contains more abstract Blinkerton-style Land of Oz photos as well as a table with two chairs.

There’s actually a back side to this level which didn’t contain any pictures in the former gallery version. I’ve remedied that lack in this version, inserting more abstract Edna photos, this time mainly from the Charleston, South Carolina collection.

But there’s also 1 Oz related photo as well, although this isn’t from the Land of Oz but instead was snapped at our own humble, little home. It’s an Oz light string that we hang up at Christmas in our windows. The picture on the wall opposite this is also a more abstract photo of house Christmas lights.


Gallery Pictures, Level 2

As I said, the front part of level 2 of the new gallery is just a flipped over version of level 1, in essence. Here Baker Bloch inspects the new drink machines added to this level in the most recent gallery version.

*But*, something is subtly different here: this grassy floor wasn’t here in the previous version. That’s because we’ve entered the new and revamped Temple of TILE proper. Remember the grassy floor of level 1 of that temple? Well, this is it!

The jutting wall is more evidence that we’ve entered the 30x30x30 temple cube: that would be the bottom of the old level 2, which is level 3 now in the new numbering system.

Anyway, to the photos: all Edna’s again, except for a small room on the east side devoted to Klutzy Kamper’s Glacier National Park art, containing 5 photos in all. Edna’s here are of N.C. parkway locations, specifically the Grandfather Mountain area. There’s also 1 Klutzy photo relating to Grandfather Mountain on this level, and more may be added later.

Because level 2 of the temple has been integrated into the old top level of the photography gallery here, we have this resultant nice, expanded space in the back of level 2, containing the bulk of Edna’s Charleston, SC collection. Most of these come from her last trip to Charleston in October of this year.

Interesting glimpse down to the level 1 foyer from this side of level 2.

And there’s even a type of loft region on the back side acesssible from a spiral staircase, and containing several more Charleston photos.

The entire open back side of level 2 measures a full 40 meters from east to west.


Gallery Pictures, Level 3

So let me get my level numbering straight once and for all. The floor pictured in this post is level *3*, not 2. But it’s the same as the old level 2 of the original temple design, such as first described in detail in this post from way back in June.

Now we have a more fulfilled version of this level, most likely. For one thing, there’s the additional of several abstract Edna photos that you see 2 of immediately upon entering this level from below (the entrance is right at the top of the spiral walkway). Another is thrown in beside the more flame-y appearing of the two for good measure.

And then walking around the rugged level we have several provided glimpses into the very heart of the temple that is also the same as in the original temple version (not present in the last version, though). There’s some differences in this heart of the temple, though. You have the 11 rock or rock colored or rock related objects surrounding a common center again, but this time the walls are colored the TILE colors of red, green, blue and gold (gold substituing for yellow here) instead of the default texture color of white. You also have the spinning TILE cube that roughly centers the cube of the temple. However, the lemon tree that use to grow from the center of this ground spot is now gone (in more recent additions, it has been replaced by a smaller, winter-type pine tree). So it’s obviously the same space but with some important differences. Since posting the snapshots for this post, I’ve also added in a teleporter to this level which connects it to several different locations within the temple and associated gallery.

But obviously the most overt difference between the newest version of the Temple of TILE and the original version is the remaining presence of the two Victorian houses that surround this central area. In fact, I didn’t move the houses at all when rebuilding the temple around them — I just slid the temple down on top of them and did what I felt were some needed adjustments, which I’ll get to when talking about levels above this one.

And you get some nice views down into the lower levels as well, such as these glimpses into the large Charleston, SC photo filled chamber just below.


Chatting, A

“Hi Hucka D.”

Hucka D.:

Hello.

bb:

Is the SL novel or novella a good idea? Just popped into my head after I woke up tonight.

Hucka D.:

Marvelous idea. Who will be the star?

bb:

I suppose Baker Bloch will be the star, or the main character. Baker Blinker will at first appear like a love interest, but eventually both will realize they are two aspects of one *user*. All else could revolve around that.

Hucka D.:

Will I be in it?

bb:

Of course. You can help me write it, even, if you wish.

Hucka D.:

Oh, that would be fun. But it’s your project.

bb:

And Smithy and SF and Grassy and Gene Fade could all be in it. Also the Mmmmmm’s.

Hucka D.:

I think it should be set… well, I’ll let…

bb:

I think it should be partially set at the Temple of TILE.

Hucka D.:

Yeah, right.

bb:

There also has to be a mystery involved… of course, The Arab! The energy source.

Hucka D.:

I think it comes from Mythos. Grassy, of course, will want to star in the movie version of the book. He’ll want to play Baker Bloch.

bb:

Hmmmmm… that would be odd! So let’s hash out some of the plot tonight. The Arab mysteriously materializes out of thin air at the recently re-constructed Temple of TILE, now integrated with Edna’s gallery (Gallery at The Temple of TILE). Baker Bloch is sent to investigate. He discovers the particle emitting sphere fitted into the square opening of the ship. He immediately connects it to the ship found in the Ross Sea of SL. He wonders if it is the same ship, especially when finding that broken tv underneath it that originally came from the Ross Sea ship. He finds a filing cabinet in the middle of the subway directly underneath the ship — nothing in it… *yet*. He then ascends the spiral walkway to… no, the temple and the new gallery are gone!

Hucka D.:

No. The pictures talk to him.

bb:

Ok, we’ll go with that. So the temple and the gallery are still there. But the pictures talk to him. He sees figures within them. They start to turn into *collages*. Yes!

Hucka D.:

Where does he see the first figure appear? I vote for Klutzy’s room. Bear that shouldn’t be there. Egan the bear. Ben. Ben.

bb:

Alright, that sounds fine. One of Klutzy’s photos, then. Perhaps the Grandfather bear is incredibly found in Glacier Park instead.

Hucka D.:

You go into that photo as well. You go to Glacier National Park. Rubideaux Creek and Spring. You are there at Grizzly. What do you do there? Well, you enter Glacier National Park from the west. But you don’t.

bb:

Then Baker Blinker comes to find out what happened to Baker Bloch and sees *him* within the collage. But he moves around the collage — she’s about to leave when she notices he’s changed positions within what she then realizes is an animated collage. After all, Baker Bloch is in a number of pictures in the last series [Hidalgo].

Hucka D.:

Indeed.

*****

bb:

Hucka D., what if Baker Bloch doesn’t encounter a bear but instead *Mossman*, played, of course, in the projected movie version by Gene Fade.

****

bb:

I’m going to list out the players:

Baker Bloch
Baker Blinker
Hucka Doobie (Hucka D.)
Esbum Michigan
Gene Fade (Mossman)
Grassy Noll (Salad Bar Jack/Verdy)
T-Bonz?
Edna Blinker?
Other Mmmmmm’s (Cherry, Berry, etc.)?

Hucka D.:

What about Smithy and SF?

bb:

Yeah, sure. I could film it, even, at the Kerchal Forest in part. I still have a rental unit there.

(to be continued?)


Chatting, B

bb:

We will continue Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Marvelous idea.

bb:

It occurred to me tonight, Hucka D., that I have gone beyond [delete name], and when I say [delete name] I always slap myself in reprimand. But this time it may be important. Esbum is the key.

Hucka D.:

ESBUM.

bb:

I have created the new Rainbow Sphere. That ass [delete name] couldn’t do that. ESBUM is the new Rainbow Sphere.

Hucka D.:

Careful.

bb:

But this must be a secret project. Like Project Ozma.

Hucka D.:

That wasn’t a secret, but it covered a secret.

bb:

Ozma has a brother.

Hucka D.:

That she does. Ozmo.

bb:

I didn’t know about him.

Hucka D.:

Baker Bloch.

bb:

In the beginning, Baker Bloch finds out that he is Ozmo. It is written.

Hucka D.:

Winesap. Denison. *Bee*.

bb:

We return then. To a Mammoth idea.

Hucka D.:

Beehive. Temple. TILE. Mammoth.

*****

SF:

You go to Arthur, you go to Rhoda. You find Grassy’s brother. Ozmo.

bb:

Brothers?

SF:

Shark. Fonzo. Fozo… Ozmo.

bb:

Jump. Where little Peter Dunne did a jumbo leap. Monster. Training, then a Minster. Half monster, half minister. Island Grove.

SF:

Peter Dunne is a key. Lock and key it.

bb:

In the beginning…

SF:

He finds the book with the cross on it.

bb:

He dries it out. Not all wet, then.

SF:

No. He’s found something. Bear.

bb:

Ozmo, but not quite… yet.

SF:

In the book is a map of Egan. Bear. BEN. Then he is in the middle…

bb:

Of Ben!

SF:

That’s how it starts.

(to be continued?)

*****

bb:

SF, Hucka D., I think this book is a linking book, a poor man’s version or perhaps a full version. Takes Baker Bloch to BEN. Island Grove, perhaps. Peter Dunne invented LOST??

SF:

I wish to help. Rhoda. Grassy’s brothers, many in number. One named Fonzo or Ozmo. Involved in Q109. Rhoda knows. Found in Rhoda/Arthur. Go to Arthur. Bee Arthur. Bee. Take Hucka D. Grassy and Hucka D. go to Arthur. Explore Mammoth Cave which may be the same as the Temple. Pack their bags.

*****

Grassy:

Baker B., I got a letter from one of my brothers named Arthur. I call him Ozmo. But then this red liquid dripped out of it. Not blood, though. Like a dye or sumtin. I’ve enlisted Hucka D. to go with me to this place in Kentucky named Arthur that is my brother. That’s where I’ll find him. In a mechanic’s shop.

bb:

Grassy, do you think something is wrong with your brother Arthur whom you call Ozmo?

Grassy:

He’s into something deeper than all of us can suspect. Endless passage.

SF:

It is time for lanterns to be lit. Into the passage!

Hucka D.:

I am employed as well. But it’s back to the future in time.

Grassy:

Ozmo finds an opening. Just stumbling and bumbling about in his ways. A little piece of plastic candy is all he is.

SF:

No it is your only human brother. Like Marilyn on The Munsters. Monsters.

bb:

Ozmo is jumping the shark here. Blowing his head. His mind. Hack a Shak.

Hucka D.:

We’re close. The book isn’t wet any more. Not entirely. This one picture… Ben. Then… zowie zoom… LINK.


Chatting, C

bb:

So I believe that Grassy will approach the human Arthur who just happens to work as a mechanic in Arthur, Kentucky, and state that he is his brother. Of course Arthur doesn’t believe this, since Grassy is a plastic piece of candy. But Grassy says he got a letter from Arthur, but Arthur says it was sent to him by mistake. Then who was the letter intended for?

SF:

That’s what you have to find out. It was intended for Grassy but not consciously. OH… Grassy gets the letter by mistake… it was intended for this Arthur fellow. But Grassy couldn’t help reading it, and noting that Arthur had found a secret passageway into Mammoth Cave. Perhaps he followed a Mossman in?

Grassy:

Nonlinear is the key.

bb:

He was drug into the cave by some kind of “alien”, shall we say. A little car is involved.

Hucka D.:

How did the letter get its way to Grassy by mistake? Someone sent it his way. 109. By the way, Baker Blinker begins to have hallucinations in the Kerchal Forest again… Uranus. Opposite of the Burning Man.

*******

Hucka D.:

What’s that book with the cross over there Arthur?

Arthur:

(Turning away from the car hood to look at the book on the table behind him.) Oh that’s just my photos. Of a park.

Hucka D.:

But not just any park. Herman, isn’t it.

Arthur (face screws up):

No.

*****

Grassy:

But then you insist that it’s Herman Park, Hucka D., and he’ll say, “I think it’s time to leave now little bee. This hallucination must end.” You see, he’s proud of those photos of his park. Defensive. He thinks Hucka D. is making fun of him here?

Hucka D.:

But I’m not.

Grassy:

I think the photos should be of Mammoth National Park, though. Yes, Mammoth.

*****

Hucka D.;

So I, Hucka D., look through the photos, after realizing they aren’t of Herman Park. And I see one in particular, which looks manipulated. Arthur states it is a collage he’s working on… he inserted a bear in the picture. Hucka D. says that’s pretty good. Then Arthur starts making stuff up… he states he put the bear in the picture but then the bear came to life in a way. Next time he looked at the picture it was down out of the tree it was in previously — in this snapshot again — and heading to a hole in the rocks behind Arthur. Arthur follows in the snapshot. Arthur states the bear’s name might be Ben.

Grassy:

Maybe it was Ben who sent Arthur the letter in the first place. Or maybe Hucka D. looks at the photos and sees the story unfolding and realizes this… that Ben sent the letter. Perhaps it is very faint and badly spelt, or the letters ill formed… like a bear would perhaps write. An intelligent bear, a shape-shifting bear mind you. The bear kidnaps Arthur… Arthur does not remember this.

Hucka D.:

Ahhhhh… the *photos* were sent to me, of Arthur being abducted by the bear which isn’t really a bear. Ben. Then I drive or whatever to Arthur, Kentucky to show Arthur the mechanic these pictures, but he says the event didn’t happen. He doesn’t remember it, not really.

Grassy:

The bear collage would have been in the back of the scrapbook of photos, like Arthur was almost ashamed to show it, or left it for the last, as a type of desert. Dessert, I mean.

Hucka D.:

I don’t think it has the form of a bear at that point. Perhaps a woman. Man/woman? Or half human, half bear.

*****

Hucka D.:

Hypothetically, Arthur, let’s say that these events pictured on the photos sent to me happened, and that they were sent by this Ben, which may be short for Benadril.

Arthur had stopped working on his little car, a Porche I believe, but I’m no car expert. He was paying close attention. He was trying to remember.

Arthur:

Ok. Alright. (Lays wrench down on table and wipes hands, and then rubs them against each other to complete the wiping process). Let’s say that’s so little bee. (You see, he was starting to get glimmers of the memory). What now?

Hucka D.:

Well, you could go back to the cave, or find the cave, if that’s where you went. What’s inside? Is Ben still there?

Arthur:

Maybe I don’t care what happened to me, if anything happened. I love that park. I’d like my, um…

Hucka D.:

Comfort zone? (Hucka D. ventures)

Arthur:

I like it the way it is. I don’t want to have weird memories of some abduction in that place.

Hucka D.:

These are difficult times.

Arthur:

Meet me over at my house after work. I’ll be off in about a half hour. I’ll let you meet my wife. No kids, just cats. You can meet them too, if they come out.

Hucka D.:

I’ll fly over to Mammoth Cave in the meantime. You say this happened in Kessinger? Cub Run?

Arthur (sternly):

I haven’t said anything about a location.

Hucka D.:

I wish to know if you don’t mind, so I can tell you if a hole is actually there. Don’t you… well, I’m just going to use my intuition on this. Just a flyover at this point. But I think Kessinger is involved. Cub Run. And hunting.

Arthur:

I was hunting deer, not bear. And I got permission to hunt there. Private land. Nothing illegal about it, if that’s what you’re thinking. It was[n’t] on national park grounds. That’s why I had to go over to Hart County.

Hucka D.:

I think you were hunting illegally. In Cub Run.

Arthur:

Listen, do you want to be invited to my house or not?

Hucka D.:

Ok, you were hunting legally. But you weren’t hunting for deer. No. You were hunting for aliens.

Arthur:

Legal aliens, though. Yeah, that’s it. Not deer. Aliens. I wasn’t going to tell you but you guessed. Now I gotta get back to work. I’m my own boss but that doesn’t mean I can just laze around all day. I have to pay the bills little guy.

Hucka D.:

Ok.

******

So Hucka D. flies over the top of Mammoth Cave National Park from Arthur to near Bee, specifically Cub Run and maybe Kessinger. Cub Run has its own cave. He doesn’t have time to explore except to stare into the mouth. Then he heads back to Arthur. He spots Arthur’s house in the woods far off the main highway for sure. Woods he loves as well. Near the border of the park, maybe even next to it. No, not quite. But close. Of course the wife is surprised by the appearance of Hucka D., the SL bee. She’s fixed lasagna. Hucka D. states he can’t eat human food and he’ll watch tv in the meantime until they can talk. He can hear them talking in the kitchen about the possible abduction. The wife, named Bea, ironically, states that he was gone far longer than he thought he was. She thought he may even be having an affair. She thinks he *was* abducted. They come into the living room. Hucka D. turns off the tv.

Bea:

Go ahead and tell him Arthur. She gives him the two thumbs up.

Arthur:

(clears throat). You could be right little bee.


Chatting, D

bb:

OMG Hucka D., I just realized that the little island that Little Island Lake is named after is Mouse Island. Sooooo…. I know it’s early. Are you up Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

*Very* stoked. Yeah, you were saying?

bb:

It’s obvious: Little Island… Mouse Island. And then a dart inserted into the Mouse. That’s where it happens. The clue is buried there. Also B. Hayes owned Mouse Island. “Booger Hayes,” I believe. His real middle name is not Booger but no one would know this.

dartboathayes

So this combines a lot of stuff. We have i-land, connected with Eye.

Hucka D.:

And of course Little Island Lake is the only Square in the United States of America. Connecting it to Square. Nearby is Triangle Lake as well. Triangles and squares can *tile* in cooperation. Then Peanut is nearby. In RL, outside of virtual reality that is, he kills the RL version of Square. Pewee also stands kind of between Peanut and Square. A bullet? [as you, bb, have theorized? Hmmm… maybe bb is pewee, as it is in size. Oh no.]

bb:

[What is it?]

Hucka D.:

[It’s the brackets again. How do we…?]

bb:

[Where’s Grassy when you need him!?]

*****

mouseisland


Chatting, E

bb:

Hucka D., I believe that the mention of Booger Hayes is a key. Lock and key. Highlight. 10. It is a connection between this virtual reality that Ozmo is in and the real world. It surfaces the memories of Mouse I. and Rutherford B. Hayes and his progeny and the Dart ship that glides into Mouse Island like a dart hits an oval green object. This is a link.

Hucka D.:

A link.

bb:

Square has no eyes, and Eye is all eyes, except [?] when there’s two of ’em. Square, then, sits behind Little Island Lake, in the past. Blind. Blind past. Before seeing begins. But Eye is the other extreme. Seeing (roundedness) without square ground. This is, then, another squaring the circle effect.

*****

The landscape in Michigan tells the story of the death of Square in RL. The man known as Peanut shoots him. Pewee may stand for the bullet [or bb? don’t go there] that kills him. BB, bullet. Hunting. You must get back to Kentucky.

I must get back to Kentucky, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

It’s already happened. It’s already there.

*****

Hucka D.:

So Arthur or Aruthur…

Aruthur:

Call me Arthur.

Hucka D.:

Soo, Arthur. You hunt with BBs?

Arthur:

No, bee, I don’t hunt with BBs, I don’t hunt with bullets and I don’t hunt with BBs. I hunt as discovery. I hunt for…

Hucka D. (leading him on):

Moss?…

Arthur:

Huh, no, Bigfoot.

Hucka D.:

But it has brown hair. So it could be Mossman. So you went into the cave. You were kidnapped by one that weaves. Threads.

Arthur:

Yeah, I suppose so.

Hucka D.:

The message was not gotten to you. The letter. Dripping. Burning. They came to me.

Arthur:

Memories. I remember now. Cub Run. Weaver. Kessinger. Snap[dragon]. Winesap. *Bee*.

Hucka D.:

“You were on the Other Side. Do you remember how you got here Arthur?” His wife gives him the 2 thumbs up, to encourage his reaction to Hucka D. “I was summoned,” Arthur replies. “I got out.” But his wife wasn’t named Bee or Bea; yes it was. But Hucka D. needed to ask another question now. “Who’s Rosey?”


Chatting, F

bb:

You know Hucka D. I There’s only 1 name attached with a lot of Ozmo’s character[istics]. Spider, for example. In looking up Spider, Kentucky [only US Spider], saw that it was included in list of town names that are the same as automobile names [Fiat Spider]. Strange thing, though, is that Spider itself is on a *Carr* Fork [and ta boot, at the junction of Carr Fork and Steer Fork]. And there’s even a village named Littcar on neighboring Little Carr Fork — Spider is a small car. Do you smell conspiracy here? Spider perhaps *plays* “B. Hayes”, who owned Mouse I. “B. Hayes” is concordant, but the identification of “B. Hayes”, the naming of such, is not [desired]. Music switches from tonal to dissonant, and becomes angry — a *bee*-like swarm. Destructive. Destroys, well, destroys, everything that Aruthur has set up as an escape in this world. He’s King of his own Domain, after all.

Spider also “draws”, with his Webb, the arrow which may be the same thing as the dart (that flew into “Mouse”).

Spider is also One [only US 1], and name “One” is emphasized to Ozmo/Aruthur.

Check this out, Hucka. In the song “Duet for One” from Leonard Bernsteins musical flop “1600 Pennsylvania Avenue”, Mrs. Hayes transforms from Mrs. Grant. Transformation again. Webb. Spider. It’s also called a show stopper, one of the bright moments of the work.

Hucka D.:

Our group do believe that this is a Wilson-Wheeler dichotomy underneath the [stream] surface. Shark is also a [SID’s 1st Oz] arche[us]type. He is the same as a Worley, which just happens to be next to the one and only Oz in *Kentucky*, on[c]e more. And he’s a bad guy, again. The Wilson-Wheeler effect is used to neutralize Worley and his machine, which leads Dorothy [in Queen tile 4] to Tik-Tok, which seems to be the same as a [wind-up] clock. But along the way, in Queen tile 3 [Wilson-Wheeler represents the flip flopped Queen tiles 1 and 2 here], she encounters the seemingly evil Wheelers, but which are just controlled Wheelers — controlled by the equivalent of Worley in Oz in the Nome King. Shark-Worley/Nome King. You must make that connection. Underneath the [stream] surface we have Wheeler flowing [back] into Wilson instead of visa versa, as one does on the surface. “Duet For One” represents the two that are both backwards and forwards at once and the once is the One.

*****

Thought: hen in Pumpkinhead =s hand in Producerhead. hen… hend… hand.

Thoughts are in heads as well.

Hen causes downfall of Nome King (Worley-in-Oz), and Hand causes downfall of [Worley-in-Shark]?

—–

Chatting, G

“Hucka D., is the upcoming and last SF related animation collages in the Wheeler series the same as the New Angle, which may be the same as the Fourth Angle? Not New Angel, then, but Angle. 4th?

Hucka D.:

Here’s SF.

bb:

Hi.

SF:

Lee. Bee. South. One. Lovely. Love Lee. Beauty.

bb:

Do Mossmen control the 4th?

SF:

Character[istics] all split apart refracted and then united. New Angle. Complete. Squaring the Circle.

bb:

The energy source of The Arab is just such a configuration. Round in a square hole.

SF:

Lee. Unfulfilled.

bb:

Can I talk about Ozmo with you SF?

Hucka D.:

I’m back. You want to talk about Spider.

bb:

Yeah, I suppose.

Hucka D.:

Underneath the stream surface lies Wilson-Wheeler working backwards from the surface. This is underneathy balance. Time.

bb:

I know where the clock is.

Hucka D.:

Yup.

bb:

I *do* know where Clock is.

Hucka D.:

Your creek after all. Stream.

bb:

It was a gift. But from whom?

Hucka D.:

It would be nice if you polished Paradox II: The Chancelling up and put it on your gallery webbsite.

bb:

Alright.

Hucka D.:

You are at an endpoint but you’re always at such.

bb:

This is a little different.

Hucka D.:

Some different.

bb:

I don’t think Ozmo wants to know about RL. He wants to keep being trapped in his illusion of Kingliness. But there’s… what’s her name?

Hucka D.:

Rosey. Why don’t you tune in…

******

Hucka D.:

Well?

Arthur:

She was a mother figure. It’s Ross C., though. Not Rosey. But, yeah, we usually just called her Rosey.

Hucka D.:

Do you know this also stands for the Ross Sea? Do you know your Antarctic geography?

Arthur:

Some.

Hucka D.:

Well, it’s not needed here because this is a virtual sea. Ross C. was not your mother only as much as the sea is anyone’s mother.

Arthur:

She was my landlady and so much more.

Hucka D.:

She was also Drew’s mom. Did you know *that*?

Arthur:

Mrs. Sea. Hmmmm…. what do you think honey?

Bea who is not-Bee:

Honey it’s time for bed now. Maybe the cartoon looking bee should leave.

Arthur:

I just remembered something else. Your name’s not Bea, it’s Lea. Lee. Bee-lee. Billy. I’m remembering something… about a clock of some kind. Clock.

Bea-who-may-be-Lee-now:

Time for bed honey. Honey; bed. Bee must leave. Thank you Bee.

Hucka D.:

Dang, they’ve faded into the static again. Dang that Kentucky-Tennessee transition. What in the world am I going to do here? Oh well, I don’t have to stay.

*****

bb:

So what does that mean, Hucka D.? We now know that Arthur is married to Lee and not Bee. And that his former landlady is Mrs. Sea. Or Ross Sea. Which couldn’t be a landlady since it is a sea. A virtual sea, but a sea at that. Ross. C. This must have something to do with The Arab… and the power source. Squaring the circle. Square. Round like an eye, then, on top, or inside.

Hucka D.:

You surface that ship — you already have — and you get trouble. People wanted it down at the bottom of that sea for a reason. Pandora’s Box.

bb:

New Angle.

Hucka D.:

Yeah.

1st Tilest Band?

snapshot740_004smaller

Hucka D.:

It’s a good look. Not a great look for Baker Bloch but a good look if you decide to keep it.

bb:

Thanks I suppose. Edna liked the Skillet T-Shirt personally.

Hucka D.:

Interesting how Baker Bloch was fooled into thinking that it was the first Tilest band created instead of the Christian rock group it actually is. How’d that happen again?*

bb:

Very funny. But I think he likes the shirt now. Maybe it should be colored differently. I think the Skillet part would look better in Gold. Olive, Gold. But he wanted the snapshot to be taken at that specific point in the temple, beside the gold wall of the center of the center.

Hucka D.:

Have you given up on the squirrel idea?

bb:

No. I might insert a squirrel there [in the center] as well, but I’m very low on prims, as you know.

Hucka D.:

Skillet is the center, though.

*****

Well, Baker Bloch decided to switch back to the old look, but minus the mask, which seemed to be putting off strangers at least. Made him look like a criminal or ‘sumtin — a bit. So here’s the look for now… **

snapshot741_001smaller

* Hucka D. actually told Baker Bloch this, and convinced him temporarily by saying that the last 5 letters of Skillet make up the letters of TILE. This is the hidden meaning of the word. Then he gave him the Skillet T-Shirt as a gift, which Baker Bloch instantly accepted and put on. Then he decided to change his appearance *around* the T-Shirt, so taken by it he was. The result is above. After Baker Bloch played around with his appearance considerably, Hucka D. fessed up and said that Skillet was not actually the first Tilest band, but just another Christian rock band. Baker Bloch suspected this all along, but still liked the T-Shirt; he knew that Hucka D. sometimes tricked him, but usually for good reasons.

** Tonight when logging back in and materializing at the temple again by default setting, Baker Bloch found a cryptic glyph on the wall just behind where his earlier appearance change occurred. I’ll have more to say about this later, but it relates to a *different self*.

snapshot741_002_002smaller


Not Skillet

bb:

So I think Baker Bloch looks better now, don’t you think?

Hucka D.:

He’s back in gold. Olive, gold.

bb:

Do you wish to talk about Skillet more?

Hucka D.:

I wish to talk about The Arab and Aruthur. He’s confused. Mrs. Sea, you see.

bb:

Everything is at the galleries and the temple now.

Hucka D.:

No.

bb:

Is Ozmo synch-proof?

Hucka D.:

(pause) A very good question. Very good. (taps finger on bee chin). Hmmmmm… Very good.

bb:

Well?

Hucka D.:

Obviously not in the map realm. But a synch has to draw the others toward it on a willing basis. What do you think?

bb:

I think it remains to be seen. I don’t think it has been chosen yet.

Hucka D.:

Is this a religious, Tilest thing?

bb:

I think it’s a bling thing.

Hucka D.:

Good answer! But what…

bb:

…does it mean?

Hucka D.:

Self.
