“…Man”

jasper06real05smaller

“Ok, Hucka D., we have a busy week and a 1/2 ahead. Let’s get to town on this one. Jasper 06. Is it finished?”

Hucka D.:

Might be. What we have in Jasper 05 and Jasper 06 is an animation, of course, the first where a cue of cars is diverted into Piers Gill, the giant gulch on the side of Lingmell Fell in England.

bb:

Ok, we had a bit of a glitch trying to run SL with all these Mozilla Firefox windows open, Hucka D., but I think we’re alright now. Just can’t run SL when creating these kind of posts. So… cues…

Hucka D.:

Then the 2nd cue of cars is allowed to pass up the road beyond the birds in the middle of the road and toward the blackbird now sitting in its center. What is the blackbird, then? And is it the same as the fox from Jasper 05?

bb:

The dingo and fox are obviously oppositioned between the 2 collages. This opposition has come up before in the 10×10, Hucka D., most immediately in Jasper 04, of course. But also, just in terms of animation sets, Newton 05 and Newton 06. That’s what I wanted to take a picture of in the gallery/temple of SL, Hucka D., before the computer locked up.

Hucka D.:

Let’s wing it instead with just images of Jasper 05 and Jasper 06 to work with. You can log in afterwards and take footnotes if you wish.

bb:

The dingo sits near the top of Pier’s Gill in Jasper 06, at the same level, top to bottom, as the fox did in Jasper 05. I wanted it to be that way; I made the level part happen, not synchronicity.

Hucka D.:

Is the dingo, in turn, the same as the Ancient from Jasper 05? Both are orange colored, after all. Both are around or in Pier’s Gill.

bb:

It’s a logical assumption, I suppose. Fox is on same level as dingo, as blackbird is on same level as Ancient. Fox-blackbird, then, as dingo=Ancient. The Ancient here, again, is the smiling orange face atop the Santa body, walking up the side of Piers Gill, just as Santa did in Oblong 06.

Hucka D.:

This is Max.

bb:

Well… Max is the man holding the stick, technically, or more immediately. The stick is the walking stick, the willow diamond walking stick, also found in “Doorpick” (Jasper 02). Again it bends impossibly around something, in this case the handle of a coffee mug to pass to its front. It securely holds this mug in its vise like grip, Hucka D. Seeminly.

Hucka D.:

Klein bottle. Paradox. 4d conveyed as 3d. Impossible perspective. Just as all the Standing and Crouching Bakers are associated with, and, by conveyance, the walking stick now. You must observe when and how people/avatars view your art. They are an influence.

bb:

The actual Max of the collages holds the walking stick in his enlarged hand in Jasper 05, and then upright in his ordinary hand in Jasper 06. Like he’s opening and closing a gate, almost.

Hucka D.:

He is opening and closing a gate. Gate of death.

bb:

The blackbird in the road is death? The road is the passage of life and death?

Hucka D.:

The fox is death. Jasper is death. The fox is the blackbird. Jasper the Rook/Raven/Crow. When the gate is open (stick up), then there is no barrier between the two. Life “naturally” passes into death, as the gatekeeper is suppose to allow. (pause)

bb:

Max, you mean?

Hucka D.:

But when the gate is closed and the impossible cup is lowered into the road, there is a diversion of the cue to another printer… I mean, another location. This would be Pier’s Gill.

bb:

Pier’s Gill is death, then.

Hucka D.:

The cue of cars seems to instead follow the Ancient up the gully, aiming for the top where the dingo stands in the next collage.

bb:

Maybe the gulch is now full of cars, and the dingo represents the new block. The flow of cars, the cue of cars, must be allowed into the death state again down the road, where the blackbird stands now. The blackbird is the more immediate form of death; the fox the more distant form.

Hucka D.:

It is very important to remember that this road is from The Jug. It allows passage into the Jug itself, which has been identified by Booker T. and his SID’s 1st Oz interview as the 4d penetrating 3d. Klein bottle. Klein jug. Impossible passage.

bb:

The cars in the back of the road in Jasper 06: are they the ones that have already passed into death? They are with the blackbird now?

Hucka D.:

Yes, I think so. In Jasper 05, you have a condition of part of the cars being in life and part in death. The stick, again, represents the transition point between the two realms, life and death. It is the moment of death, perhaps.

bb:

I’m still unclear about the diversion into Piers Gill. Is this defeat of death?

Hucka D.:

Yes. [Delete name]. Gill’s Pier. 2051.

bb:

Hucka D., I think the cars in the back of the road in Jasper 05 represent the ones that have reached Gill’s Pier. They’re white, like the von Trapp children in Jasper 04 under the Gill’s Pier sign. I think its… backwards, then. Jasper 06 represents the ordinary passage of life into death, around the birds of death, leading to the blackbird. This is death. Blackbird is the opposite of whiteness, like in Carrcass-1, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Singing in the dead of night.

bb:

Jasper 05, then, would be the more unusual circumstance of escaping from death, or the, like you said, “natural” life-death cycle. This would be through Piers Gill. This would be through [delete name].

Hucka D.:

[Delete name] teaches us about the blackbird singing in the dead of night and allowing us to set it free. White-black. Race relations a bit, but…

bb:

It’s also an unusual circumstance to have your hand enlarged like Max has in Jasper 05.

Hucka D.:

Hand is a key.

bb:

So the fox, which is the same as a blackbird, shows us a sneaky way around the normal life-death cycle. A sly way.

Hucka D.:

You must study. TILE.

Or the death state as already full. One *must* divert.

Hucka D.:

Go inworld now.

bb:

Thank you.


“It’s Up To Us Now.” (DRAFT!)

jasper07test02g

NOTE: This was originally planned as Jasper 07, but has been usurped in this position within the Jasper series by another, newer collage of the same name. See here.

“Strange Jasper 07 work, perhaps, Hucka D.”

Hucka D.:

Yes. Queer. 5 of you.

bb:

Baker Blochs, you mean.

Hucka D.:

Yeah. Sorry.

bb:

Should we attempt an interpretation tonight?

Hucka D.:

Feeling groggy still.

bb:

Just 08, 09, and 10 to start from scratch now, Hucka D. And, actually, 10 will make an animation with 1.

Hucka D.:

The next one will go further with TILE. Beyond this one.

bb:

This one may be obviously about Rubi Forest and the relationship to that fairly similarly sized Corsica Island forest that has since been derezzed. Now I find the expanded version of Corsica Island has a Rookwood sim, the greenest sim of the lot now. We know now this may refer directly to the Newborough Warren, with the similarly closely packed corsican pines.

Hucka D.:

There is a relationship. (pause) I think you should wait on this one.

bb:

Thank you.

Chatting; D.

“Hucka D., we almost had to use Microsoft Word for our chat this morning.”

Hucka D.:

You found BROOK. Good for you.

bb:

I know where BROOK is, yes. Need to tell Cammie.

Hucka D.:

Yes. And apologize. You are such an insensitive bastard sometimes (smiles).

bb:

I know. Sorry.

Hucka D.:

Tell Cammie.

bb:

Thanks anyway… but I guess that was [delete name].

Hucka D.:

Yes. (smiles again) Delete name.

bb:

The next collage will be about BROOK, then.

Hucka D.:

Yes. You had to know about that first before you could proceed.

bb:

What about Otherland vs. Mainland.

Hucka D.:

I already told you that Otherland had to go. You must rent from now on. Focus on rl and, especially, photography and hiking. BROOK.

bb:

I’m using the 4096 lot as a temporary sandbox before giving the land back. Didn’t even realize before that you can’t resell the land yourself. This is different from Azure Islands. If I buy estate property again, it might be from AI, then.

Hucka D.:

You’ll rent from now on, unless you have a big project you want to test out on AI first. Nieth property is still available last time I checked.

bb:

Do you want to talk about Jasper 07 more.

Hucka D.:

I’d rather talk about Jasper 08. Encasement. 8. Octagon. Like Greenup 12 and Greenup 20. Tulips; pink. Communication. BROOK. BROOK is in the center of STREAM, CREEK, RIVER. Surprised you haven’t noticed that before, baker b. But such is the masking quality of BROOK. It doesn’t want to be noticed, except to those initiated in the mysteries.

bb:

It protects itself.

Hucka D.:

As delete name said, going during the day would be best. Lost Valley.

bb;

Martin is the 9th. M/N. Billfork Core Diagram. Z/A-D-G-J-M/N-Q-T-W-Z/A.

Hucka D.:

24 elements and thus not 26. Which can be split into two groups of 12.

bb:

Hucka D., in looking at Greenup 12, I think I might need to return to Stonethwaite for Jasper 08. Stonethwaite… Stonethrow… Gillsville. Gill. Greenup.

Hucka D.:

Pier’s. (pause) What is “The Other”, really?

bb:

Orange. Plane of Dingos. Denver. John. Lennon. [Elway.] Plains to see. Yoko. City. (pause) Delete name lived in Denver City, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

So did Tommy Dekker for a spell.

bb:

Oil business. Oyl.

*****

bb:

Hucka D., is Greenup Gill like the Lost Valley?

[Hucka D. does not answer.]

bb:

Alright. What does “all red” mean? In terms of hands especially, perhaps? Plain of Dingos; Plane of Foxes? (pause) Hucka D.?

[no answer.]

bb:

Hucka D., I also think BROOK may represent the tetractys, the Realm of Numbers. 1-10. TILE Creek is, then, A-Z. 26 elements. The tetratys extended through the 36-Triangle. Hucka D.?

[no answer.]

bb:

I have a feeling that Jasper 10, the animation to Jasper 01, may contain an Arkansas flag, or at least the 25 stars from that flag. The Otherland gallery, though, will be replaced by the state of Missouri, somehow. Show Me. Grassy. Newton-Jasper-Grassy. Where’s Grassy gone, Hucka D.? (pause).

Realm of Numbers on the Tyle Cube is represented by the orange 01 and the violet 00, Hucka D., if you’re still there at all. In Mythos history, it is Vinee and Sprurrel. Squirrel, like Skillet. Olive, Vinee, Sprurrel. 8-9-10, perhaps. Olive… Gold. Oklahoma. Skillet. Self.

Let’s see, The Other would be like Yoakum County, Texas, without the guiding violet of the martin bird. 8 that cannot proceed to 9. The 9th is the microcosm of the whole 8, though. M/N. MartiN.

Hucka D.:

Martin leads to the Lost Valley.

(to be continued?)


Jasper 08

jasper08real13smaller

“I think the theme of this one, Hucka D., is that there’s rarely a sunny day in Borrowdale. What do you think?”

Hucka D.:

Sudden rain, sudden flood. Doesn’t the being in the octagon enclosure looked shocked?

bb:

We’re going to pretend that some missing elements from this collage draft are already there, Hucka D., since they’ll be added in tomorrow. This would include the black and white Beatles playing in the middle of the road behind the octagon being, and then the demon in the dark window from Wheeler 08, appearing here in the leftmost barn door to the right in the collage — the ones the water is pouring out of. Self prophecy may be in effect here…

Hucka D.:

Right. Negative thinking. To put a sign up like that encourages the rainy weather itself. Self fulfilling.

bb:

Hucka D., I think this also has to do with the new BROOK idea. I believe the stream of the picture is the BROOK in a way. The hummingbird moves upstream here, away from the apparently surprised octagon being with the hummingbird shape embedded in the octagon cover. Most of these images have occurred before — the octagon and eyeballed being within is from Greenup 12 and also Greenup 20. The hummingbird is common in the last part of the Greenup series as well. The Arkansas flag stars are also from Greenup 20. Greenup 12 itself is set in Stonethewaite in the Lake District as is this one. This strongly relates, then, to Greenup 12 especially, but also Greenup 20. We don’t have the John Elway figure repeating from Greenup 12, above the octagon being there, but we have another John, Lennon this time, directly above this figure.

Hucka D.:

Something unexpected has come into Stonethwaite: flood. It threatens, perhaps, to wash the octagon being away, perhaps even the whole town. But probably, if anything, just the octagon being/person. The “D” letter has also appeared in a number of places in the 10×10, now. Most immediately, the very last collage, Jasper 07 (“It’s up to us now.”) and again from a sports related setting. The “D” in Jasper 07 stands for Detroit, though [Tigers; baseball team]; this one in Jasper 08 stands for Denver [Broncos; football team]. The “D” is in Greenup 12 as well, and there it’s obviously related to the John Elway figure, Elway being probably the most famous Bronco player of all time. Both the single “D” in Jasper 08 and the multiple “D”s of Jasper 07 are set within the outlines of dark blue diamond shapes. “D” stands for diamond as well, then. (pause). The martin flag of Jasper 07 is also obviously related to the flag of Jasper 08. The flag of 07 hangs from a [diamond willow] walking stick; the flag of 08 hangs from a telephone line running across its central street. Both flags hang vertically.

bb:

After being “up in the air” in Jasper 07, though, we are solidly back on the ground for Jasper 08. Back in the Lake District, as we were in Jasper 05 and 06. But now where it all started for the 10×10: Greenup Gill. For the stream flooding the streets of Stonethwaite here is from a picture of the flooded Stonethwaite Beck, where it forms from the confluence of Langstrath Beck and Greenup Gill at the ______ bridge. Let me check quickly on that fact.

*****

bb:

Well, I can’t quite find the location of that bridge, Hucka D., but it’s certainly close to this confluence.

Hucka D.:

At least close enough to call the two barn doors here the respective Greenup Gill and Langstrath Beck that combine to form Stonethwaite Beck. So is this like the formation of Silver from Green and Red?

bb:

Could be. Maybe I should color the doors such [green and red].

Hucka D.:

But now we know that BROOK is also associated with Greenup Gill. I wonder if the door with the demon smelling the flower is the Greenup Gill door. I would think it is, instead, the Langstrath Beck door — more water flows from it [Langstrath Beck is considerably larger than Greenup Gill at this confluence].

bb:

That would make sense, I suppose.

Hucka D.:

But back to BROOK… the hummingbird moving upstream mirrors the same which first appears in the 10×10 in Greenup 13, the one after the Stonethwaite setting in Greenup 12. The two hummingbirds are obviously the same bird. In Greenup 13, we are moving back into the Greenup Gill area after briefly visiting the Stonethwaite village. The same might be happening here. In Greenup 13, I believe the two beds of the collage stand for Langstrath Beck and Greenup Gill as well, the two sources of Stonethwaite Beck.

bb:

Interesting that the stream and the roads of the town become one and the same in Jasper 08, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Interesting, also, that the hummingbird of Greenup 13 faces toward the giant eyeball, where in Jasper 08 he faces away from it. But in Greenup 13, unlike the present collage, a jewel fills in for the pupil, an Alexandrite gem to be precise. Alexandrite appears green in natural light and red in artificial light.

bb:

In looking closer at Greenup 12, Hucka D., I believe that the miniature version of Stonethwaite village in the middle of the road of the, er, macro-version of this same village might be like the Stonethwaite Beck in the road of Jasper 08. Both are similarly colored and in the road, I mean. Both are named Stonethwaite.

Hucka D.:

Interesting observation. Also important to point out that the bluish hummingbird seems directly related to the martin of Greenup 12., which has also just appeared in the Jasper series as well [martin flag of Jasper 07].

bb:

The number 08 of Jasper 08 may relate to the central octagon figure within the collage as well.

Hucka D.:

We also have the phrase “Coack K” in both, with K directly related to D in each as well. This kind of image first appears in Greenup 08, although the actual Coach K (Duke coach image) appears even earlier in the 10×10 and the Greenup series. In Greenup 08, we are on the Greenup Gill, moving down into Stonethwaite village. There are two types of movements in the Greenup series, one from the north and one from the south. The center is that mound shown in Greenup 05 and Greenup 06, but also symbolized in other places… perhaps too difficult to explain here, hmmmm…

bb:

The hummingbird, directly related to the martin, represents the number 09 beyond 08, wouldn’t you think, though? As we have in the Billfork diagram.

Hucka D.:

Billfork diagram… trying to remember what that was. Wasn’t that from Floydada?

bb:

Yeah… mentioned within.

billfork2b

arizonanewmexico

The hummingbird/martin is violet, 09, beyond orange, 08. We must follow this bird upstream again, like we did between Greenup 12 and Greenup 13. We must move away from Stonethwaite and orange and “D”, again, Hucka D. The Other.

Hucka D.:

Otherland.

*****

bb:

Hucka D., I think I need to deal, again — as well — with the Jigkansawyers of the Greenup series. The jigsaw piece of the Greenup Gill.

Hucka D.:

Parrot. Rydal.

bb:

In Greenup 17 we also have the confluence of Frank/Mossman/Heman and Herman Parks. “You’re a Herman Mossman” is the actual title. This would be around the same location or setting as Greenup 13. The hummingbird reappears, fluttering in front of another open hole, this time a cave. Meramec Cave… Amereca.

Hucka D.:

BROOK. Lost Valley. BROOK. B…ROOK.

bb:

This cave has a back door, though. Leading back to the very center of the Greenup Gill valley. Mound.

Hucka D.:

BROOK. Mound. Center.

bb:

Perhaps a flood in Greenup 17 as well.

Hucka D.:

We better end.

bb:

Thank you.


Jasper 09 (“Sunny Day”)

jasper09real12smaller

Here we go Hucka D… the draft of the *final* collage I’ve created for the Jasper series, and also for the 10×10 *as a whole*. On top of that we have a, ahem, prim and proper gallery to fit all of these works into now; the way it was suppose to happen. How could I have known?

Hucka D.:

Told you you needed to get rid of the Otherland parcel. You can thank Arcadia Asylum as well.

bb:

Of course I will. Will provide pictures and text about the new Aplasta gallery for the 10×10 asap, perhaps even tonight. But now to Jasper 09.

Hucka D.:

This is an idea on the backburner for a bit, at least during the creation of the Jasper series. The setting is Rydal again, and *spring*. You miss spring, baker b. It is coming soon enough, don’t worry.

bb:

Yes, I can see the idea that this collage is about spring and the need for experience of that season.

Hucka D.:

Nice that you put your 2 cats in this one, baker b. [black and white cats near the lower left corner] Johnny and Carson, isn’t it?

bb:

No. Eddie and Casey. Kind of after the famous psychic Edgar Cayce… Eddie’s from Edgar, originally, but we never call him that now. Just Eddie or Spaghetti Boy, just because it rhymes with Eddie.

Hucka D.:

They are leaning the opposite way from the water tower with “Britten” on it.

bb:

The b. of baker b. stands for breton, so I thought Britten was close. They’re baker b.’s (and Edna Million’s) kitties.

Hucka D.:

But they’re not really kitties anymore.

bb:

About a year and a half old now, I suppose. So: not really.

Hucka D.:

Then between the water tower and the cats are a very green Mossman, perhaps the most central figure of the collage, and also a circle of rocks that we know is a portal, perhaps between sl and rl. That’s the same portal from Wheeler 09, isn’t it baker b.?

bb:

Yes. But this time the water doesn’t flow from it, like it did in that collage. Maybe it is a fire portal now instead.

Hucka D.:

The way out of sl and back into rl, perhaps.

bb:

Mossmen are suppose to have created the RIVER portals, Hucka D. This one seems greener than Gene Fade, though.

Hucka D.:

Different, yes. Darker.

bb:

Blends almost totally into the bush in back of him. Or her.

Hucka D.:

Then we, I see, have that toy used to tile the background of a recent Jasper collage… Jasper 05, no Jasper 07.

bb:

Right.

Hucka D.:

You miss your pipe system from the older versions of your gallery[/temple].

bb:

Yeah. That could be part of it. The cats and the water tower seems to be leaning out of their way, like the cartoon figures of Oblong 04 lean left and right from the center. Quite similar.

Hucka D.:

‘Nother category for the Baker Bloch blog.

bb:

Yeah, could be. The overlap of a lemon and a lime prefigures the use of these in the Greenup series that follows the Jasper series in the big circle of the 10×10. It’s first used in the first collage of the Greenup series, as a matter of fact. Lime overlaps lemon here instead of visa versa. Now this seems to have something to do with SL, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Loss of all art inside The Man as it shifts from Lemon World to Lime World, i.e., Second Life as we know it today. Lemon World came first, but was eclipsed. It was called Linden World at first.

bb:

But linden is a lime, Hucka D. In Britain that is.

Hucka D.:

Britten (laughs).

bb:

I like the contrast of textures in this collage and backing photo, Hucka D. The mountains in the far background, for instance, with the checkerboard ball floating above it. We can’t tell how big the ball is from this perspective.

Hucka D.:

It looks big to me.

bb:

Well (baker b. checks collage again)… I guess you’re right. (smiles) What else with this collage, Hucka D.? (pause) I think we need to talk more about Lemon World and what exactly that is, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Interesting collage. Nice one to wrap up with. Tomorrow you will begin to create the final versions of all these; put it in your Healy gallery and, of course, your new Alpasta gallery. Then create another Temple of TILE, baker b. Just for practice.

bb:

Thank you Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

You’re welcome!


Jasper 10

jasper10test17

jasper01real14smaller

“Amazing, Hucka D. Jasper 10 *might* be complete already.”

Hucka D.:

Not quite, but close.

bb:

But I still have Jasper 09 to do. And then the slight revisions to Jasper 01. I should be finished by Monday at the latest, I believe. Then I can really shift the focus to hiking, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

BROOK. Contact. Chancelling.

bb:

I was too tired to head out to BROOK today, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Tomorrow, then.

bb:

Yes. I have a feeling that Jasper 09 may have something to do with BROOK.

Hucka D.:

Could be (smiles).

bb:

Where’s Wilsonia these days, Hucka D.? Haven’t seen her around in a while.

Hucka D.:

She’s — well, I won’t say that.

bb:

I assume she’s still been drinking that coffee all this time.

Hucka D.:

Let’s talk about Jasper 10 now before I get into trouble.

bb:

Well, the main dilemma I have to resolve is whether to get rid of the Otherland 4096 parcel, Hucka D. And I think I’ve decided this is the best way to go. So in Jasper 10 the temple/gallery is replaced by a symbol of the 10×10 itself, from the little website I cooked up for on the *writing* 10×10 — but, of course, it would apply to the art 10×10 since it’s just a box of 10×10 cubby holes. Then I just started filling out various animations to move Jasper 10 and Jasper 01 closer and closer together. Notice the sign (double of the curtain the walking stick insect is “holding in Jasper 01) covers the islands in the background that represent Otherland. I think you can stick a fork in ’em, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Most definitely. But you always have the option to return. Same for Azure Islands, which may be a better option since it would not require as much money. Neith, for example.

bb:

My old property there is still up for sale last time I checked.

Hucka D.:

Not yet.

bb:

No. So I don’t want to give up Klein now, and I can’t give up the Healy gallery. Seefeld is the only option, but then I wouldn’t have the full 10×10, minus the Greenup series, displayed in SL. Either Otherland had to go or all these mainlands galleries and temples had to go, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

That’s what I was going to say…

bb:

So let me continue with the animation description between Jasper 10 and Jasper 01. In 01 we have the Beatles playing beneath the curtain just mentioned; in 10 this changes into Martin from the Simpsons… George Martin to Martin Prince, just like we have in the Greenup 05 to Greenup 06 animation.

Hucka D.:

That was the first animation you decided to do, I believe, baker b. The one that started the animation sets.

bb:

Yes. The rock George Martin sits on in Jasper 01 changes into the Esau Junction mound Martin Prince also stands on in Greenup 05.

Hucka D.:

Esau Junction being next to Greenup in Oklahoma. Esau, in your Bible, is the son of Isaac, who is the son of Abraham and Sarah. Thus tying it to your lemon tree mythology as well.

bb:

But the Greenup series was created several years before the, um… lemon tree mythology really started to kick into high gear, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Yes… queer. (pause) I think in your Jasper 10 that Martin Prince should be with his apples and Brazil flag again, perhaps, like he is in Greenup 05. Interesting, perhaps, as well, that he is turned the opposite way from Greenup 05 in Jasper 10. Wonder if that has any meaning? (pause) I also understand you want to insert the Abominable snow monster just behind Martin Prince here. Correct?

bb:

Thinking about it.

Hucka D.:

You better continue with your animation description between the beginning and ending Jasper collages.

bb:

Right. So one I added into Jasper 01 in response to Jasper 10 is the word “Diamonds”, taken directly from the central animation set of Wheeler — Wheeler 05 and Wheeler 06. In Jasper 10, the word makes a straight line across the top, as it does in Wheeler 05. In Jasper 01 now, we have the same chaotic situation for the word and its letters that appeared in Wheeler 06…

Hucka D.:

And another one of your collages… which one?

bb:

That would be Yale 07.

Hucka D.:

Uh huh.

bb:

To continue, then — guess I should point out that the word “restaurant” now fully formed on the vertical axis of the cross present in both Jasper 01 and Jasper 10 also contains 10 straight, up-and-down letters, mirroring one of the vertical rows of the 10×10 to its right.

Hucka D.:

That may stand for the 10 collages of the Jasper series itself, the final row.

bb:

Good observation. (pause) Jasper 10 seems to be about completion and fulfilllment, which is understandable…

Hucka D.:

This is the final collage… the 100th of 100.

bb:

In Jasper 01, the letters of the word “Diamond” are flying around because the Jasper series itself hadn’t been formed… hadn’t settled down into a rowed pattern of 10 elements. And the Otherland situation hadn’t been resolved as well.

Hucka D.:

Is it resolved now?

bb:

Yes, think it is, Hucka D. I have to sell.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

The Jasper series is also lining up quite nicely in the Healy gallery, as it would have in the Otherland gallery had I decided to keep it. The space it is exhibited in affects the art itself, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Certainly does.

bb:

Then we have John Elway and his roller coaster reappearing here, replacing the Wilsonia/Golden Dodder symbiosis of Jasper 01. The key link between the two is the burning car — both Elway and “Wilsonia” are holding one. And they appear also to be one and the same car. Wonder what that means, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Obviously it has something to do with the Otherland gallery and the 10×10 that was suppose to be permanently displayed within it, don’t you think?

bb:

Yes, but… but now we know that the 10×10 and the Otherland gallery are separate things, the first permanent and the second temporary and expendable. Tough still, though, to do this.

Hucka D.:

You don’t have to sell. You can rebuild it still.

bb:

Doesn’t seem like an option, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

No.

bb:

What about Hurla Dontbee, Hucka Doobie? (smiles)

Hucka D.:

I can handle her on my own terms.

bb:

I still have a little time to make this decision.

Hucka D.:

Well, what are your options? You can give up all mainlands rentals and keep Otherland and you’d still be paying 10, perhaps 15 more dollars a month for its 4096 parcel. You have the 10×10 basically on the mainland now. And now you have a mainland Temple of TILE. You can even build another temple easily enough. You can’t have both mainlands and estate property right now. Maybe some other time, though. But not now.

bb:

Yeah… suppose you’re right.

Hucka D.:

I’ll talk about some of the remaining animations of Jasper 01/Jasper 10 now. The Elway figure is directly from Yale 07. I believe he represents the correction of the “error” caused by buying the Otherland property in January, baker b. At the time, he lost his head; it turned blue underwater. Wilsonia chopped it off, baker b. and stole his burning car, which represents the sun here. Sun was replaced by Moon, baker b., don’t you think? [as recorded in Wheeler 03]

bb:

Yeah. Suppose so.

Hucka D.:

And the Otherland Island #2 has now been deleted in part. Interesting, eh? Including your former friend’s corner lot. Now you’ll never know the full story of the Garden of Eden and aliens that he was writing about in his book, baker b. That’s a shame.

bb:

I’m not sure I can give up the Otherland property.

Hucka D. (blowing out air):

Yes. Yes, you must give up that property.

bb:

Well… to continue. We have the mug reappearing from Jasper 05, which we now know represents a Klein bottle or mug as well, with the handle and all. This seems to represent the Klein version of the Temple of TILE now, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Yes. For now, your Simpsons’ Martin is staring right at it, even waving at it. Klein equals Kleiners as a whole. The whole sim, then. Otherland is blocked now, but you’ve made new friends. Kleiners.

bb:

Suppose so.

Hucka D.:

And if you think about it, that’s the 4th element that has just been added to the gallery/temple mainlands situation. You have 3 locations now on the mainlands. You have your Healy gallery, symbolized by the lighthouse to the right in Jasper 01 and Jasper 10, then the Seefeld skyscraper symbolized by the cross in both, and now the Klein temple. I think the temple should have been in Klein.

bb:

All along?

Hucka D.:

It has always been there. Hidden in a higher dimension. You must write more about the Klein temple very soon. Provide pictures in this blog… so forth.

bb:

Then we have walking sticks in both 01 and 10, and in the same basic position in each. An insect in 01, though, and an actual stick in 10. Care to comment?

Hucka D.:

The stick represents the support of the Healy gallery and its owner for your work… your collages… your 10×10. You inspire, as she said.

bb:

The walking stick in Jasper 01 also moved the curtain over top of the island that represent the Otherland archipelago. It would have been very easy to have been trapped there, Hucka D., so attractive the land is.

Hucka D.:

Yes land attractive is.

bb:

I think the burning car of Jasper 01 and 10 first shows up in the 10×10 in Greenup 15, Hucka D. And then the Casey Boy splits in two between Greenup 15 and Greenup 16, just like it does between Jasper 01 and 10.

Hucka D.:

We better end here.

bb:

Thank you.
