Baker Blinker Blog Book IV: Jeogeot II 03c (Dec/Jan 2010 03 of 03)


more Jeogeot-Maebaleia examinations, 01

Employing the timeline maps from the nifty Maps of Second Life site, I’ve now been able to chart, month by month, how the Second Life mainland formed from 2006 on.

Jeogeot, originally known as the Southern Continent, it seems, first shows up on this grid in 01-01-2006 according to month. I’ve also seen it referred to as the Korean Continent, because of its numerous sims named for Korean locations. It’s that bit of green at the bottom of the map below. To the top we have the larger masses of Heterocera (north) and Sansara (south), the two original Second Life continents, joined to each other by a sim-wide column of water.

By 01-01-2007, Jeogeot is still not complete, being slowly formed from top to bottom, essentially. One year on, the creeping formation of the continent, at least compared to those that follow, had only just started to move around the lower edge of what now is called the Korean Channel (the official Linden name).

What also surprised me is that the Sansara continent was still developing around the edges at the same time as Jeogeot’s formation throughout 2006. Compare this with Heterocera/Atoll Continent, which already stood complete at the beginning of 2006.

2 months later (03-01-2007), a fourth mainland continent begins to form to the east of any former continent. This would become the Maebaleia continent, also known as Satori or the Japanese Continent. This is also the first month that the Jeogeot continent has assumed its final shape, minus the filling in of the Korean Channel and the additional of Mos Ainsley sims about 1 year later (see below). To differentiate between what eventually turned out to be a whole eastern hemisphere of the mainland grid to complement the now almost completed western hemisphere, I’ll color the eastern continents pink in the maps to follow.

By 05-01-2007, the Maebaleia continent already stood complete. Compare its roughly two month creation to that of Jeogeot, which took well over a year. And by this time, even the continent above Maebaleia, Nautilus, was off to a good head start.

Slightly less than a year later (03-01-2008), the aforementioned filling in of the Korean Channel occurred, removing that central notch from Jeogeot appearing above. Difficult to tell from this map if the Mos Ainsley related sims, 3 in number, were added at the same time, but I’m assuming they were in checking other sources. You can also see that Nautilus is well completed by now, and also Corsica, the continent to the north, is rather slowly forming west to east, to be finished by 05-01-2008, at the same time the next continent, Gaeta, has begun. Interestingly, it took Corsica about 9 months to form after the quite quick creation of both Maebaleia and Nautilus in this hemisphere.

And the mainland grid as it stands today, with a completed Gaeta and an as yet unfinished continent to the north of Corsica, even. The still forming Zindra and the spanking new Nascera are not added in, I assume, because of space purposes, both being well to the east and southeast of this central continent cluster respectively.

Another important addition since 05/2008 is the Nautilus City/Blake Sea region, sandwiched between Maebaleia to the south and Nautilus to the north.

To be continued…


Thoughts…

Work on the idea that the Joplin seed formerly within Big Sink is actually the Sirian alien creature called Brainard. Brought from Rubisea by The Bakers still. Big Sink allowed it to be trapped. Peter created Big Sink just for this purpose, or allowed the (Sunklands) incident/catastrophe to happen. But Brainard (= manifestation of God) got out of hand.

Brainard: “I am the true form of The Wizard.”

Brainard hated POLK? POLK was entrapment in Sunklands, mainly Big Sink then, but perhaps the others as well, especially the closest, Aotearoa. Lill Burn Valley? Otaki Gorge? Brainard may also have been placed inside the Oolamoo-Drews sink for a while. POLK was a symbol of the incident, cutting diagonally across the western face of Jeogeot to created Big Sink and Sunklands as a whole.

Brainard is the same as The Rainbow Sphere. He is, in that way, indeed the true form of The Wizard. He is much like the false Wizard head of the Oz movie, except he is true, not false. Real, not fake.

Brainard was assoc. with both a marble and a golf ball. Somehow he created the hole in the center of Big Sink and used it to escape from his Second Lyfe. 9th hole, or 18th (he dropped down it).

I don’t think there may be a lot more to Maebaleia… it is a sort of watered down version of the more thought out and original Jeogeot, a cheaper copy (like Dark Side of the Yellow Submarine to Dark Side of the Rainbow). Poor Man’s Jeogeot. Still, again, it has its unique qualities certainly, like the Blue Feather Sea and the twinning with Rubisea itself, the seed. I believe there will be other stories involving perhaps not the Blue Feather Lake District, but several lakes on the eastern side of the continent. Let me go inworld and take a picture of something that recently interested me in the sim of Kailash (see end of post).*

There was no real place to keep the Brainard ball/head on Maebaleia, so they, The Bakers, witih Hucka Doobie in tow as a purple/black alien woman, had to move to Big Sink. The sink (sinks) was created just for this purpose in olden days.

Another thought: perhaps Brainard lived there a very long time ago, and The Bakers just found this out when they moved to Big Sink. Brainard, one time, had gotten up just enough steam to roll from Big Sink to neighboring Aotearoa, where he was trapped (died?). Were there more than one Brainards in Sunklands? Even one for each hole, perhaps? Hole equals “whole” (reality for each Brainard)?

Brainard is a living seed that does *not* want to be planted to become the tree he should be. He has a choice to remain this seed, and he does everything in his power to do so. Again, he is a direct manifestation of God, according to him anyway.

Brainard may also control the weather, making everything cold if he wishes and turning the fair skinned human avatars a chilled blue.

A religion, um, sprouts up around him. Brainard is a God, perhaps The God, and thus *can’t* be planted and become something else. He is Uroborous, Beginning and End. He controls The Weather (Ray of Darkness, and, inside of that, Away The Ray?).**

(Did St. Lemon send Brainard to Jeogeot to punish them for their naked sins??)

(If so, St. Lemon only did this when Jeogeot began to “round the lower edge of the Korean Channel” during its formation in 2006-2007. Before, Jeogeot was the sole possession of Sapphire/Alma; it was only its whole, eastern version then. The slow formation of Jeogeot insured that it would remain pure and uncorrupt. Unforunately, the rounding of the Korean Channel (future) changed events.)

A second seed, not living like Brainard this time, is used to create the Oracle Tree of Chilbo (?) (If so, this would have been a correction made by Sapphire/Alma.)

(The Rift was formed to protect uncorrupted east side from corrupted west side now well past the lower edge of KC. It flaunted its assoc. with KC. Second Life later became assoc. with Kansas City Life because of this. Two minute hole. The Rift is the same as the Mayland creation of the Toothpick River, isolating the Altana Valley and *that* Brainard. It may have begun at Peru/Brazil (seed). It may be the same thing as the Eel River, one from two.)

The Bill were sent in to correct the error of Brainard remaining corporeal itself and not sacrificing itself to the greater Tree. They came in spaceships from a different star system. This is the true meaning of Magellan Linden stating on the Elderglen note to send him The Bill (for breaking the Nascera transporter at the 8th rock). He meant only The Bill could repair it since they created it, or else he had to own up to The Bill for breaking it (and no one else). The Bill also created the directly related Villeneuve transporter next to the Rabbit Head there on Yd Island, as seen in the Elderglen-Villeneuve twinning.

The Bill and Elderglen are associable through Glen Elder, Kansas, near one of the most amazing springs in the World now submerged under the Waconda Lake formed by damming the Solomon River. It was called Waconda Springs. **

Wakonda was the beautiful daughter of an Indian chief. From the beginning, the elders of the tribe knew it was unwise for the chief to name his daughter after a god, which is what they considered the spring to be. As Wakonda grew older, she liked to wander the countryside. One day she came upon an injured warrior. After a short conversation, they realized they were from enemy tribes, but that did not stop Wakonda from nursing him back to health. The warrior’s name was Takota, the son of the opposing chief. Eventually, he regained his strength and went to Wakonda’s father to ask for her hand in marriage.

Harsh words were spoken and a battle was fought around the springs. Takota was standing near the edge of the spring when one of warriors of Wakonda’s father shot an arrow that hit Takota Mortally wounded, he fell into the springs as he died. Heartbroken, Wakonda dove into the water after him calling to the gods to give back her lover. She never resurfaced. The warriors drew back in awe, and to this day it is believed that the spirit of Wakonda dwelled in the Spring, and perhaps even still in the place of its namesake–Waconda Lake.

Hucka D.:

The Bill came from the area of Rubisea, involved in R110. Rule 110 but not. Ruuster.

bb:

Why is the Maebaleia Rabbit Hole, that 1/2 of it I mean, “wrapped in plastic?”

Hucka D.:

The Maebaleia side had to be sealed so that The Hole would be forgotten. You do not need it now since teleportation is automatic across the grid, thanks to the Second Life servers.

Sapphire:

I had to deal with Brainard as well. Thank you for bringing him to us. That’s said with sarcasm, but it was indeed a long time ago now. Years and years and years and years. And years.

bb:

Did you divide the continent?

Hucka D.:

You are getting better! (at channeling) Yes, Sapphire ruled the east, while Brainard was left with the west. The West, he called it. Sunklands was his center stage. Anger (at being “merely” a seed). Vanity (at thinking he was begin all, end all). Charm. Smarts, of course. Emotionally he had work to do, and he could only be The Tree to fulfill himself. Sapphire knew that as well. A compromise was made at Chilbo. A non-living seed would be planted there that would take the place of the tree that Brainard should have become.

The Living Seed is the missing piece you have needed for a while now. The Wizard. True, not false. But merely a head, a marble, a sphere. Rainbow. If it weren’t for Karoz… (pause)

bb:

That might be it.

*****

* Well dang: Baker went the day after I wrote this text to add the mentioned picture and the strange looking place was gone (!). I think something is trying to keep me away from Kailash right now, due to that and other events.

**Brainard, who may be named Ray actually, was perhaps responsible for the creation of Black Earth, which may be the same as Second Lyfe itself (as opposed to Second Life). A secret organization called Ray of Darkness was formed around this belief, with a secret secret organization within called Away The Ray that wanted to do away with the weather controlling Ray and his Black Earth rule. An opposite reality, White Earth, was created to counteract Black Earth, and abet the powers of Ray (of Darkness), allowing the Temple (of Solomon) to be reinstated.

more Jeogeot-Maebaleia examinations, 02

Continuing, then, from the “More Jeogeot-Maebaleia Examinations, 01” post just below, let’s now back up to the 05-01-2007 SL mainland situation and do a side-by-side comparison between the just completed Maebaleia continent and the also recently completed, previous continent of Jeogeot. First off, one may notice that they’re roughly the same size, and also appear to be about the same height and the same width. In fact, at this stage they are *exactly* the same number of sims high and also wide, or 43 x 36 sims to be precise. How cool is that?!

We can perhaps see this better in the below maps, where each is snugly fit into a 43×36 grid (again, thanks to Kou Umaga for his most excellent SL geography research!). Just open both larger maps in a separate window and toggle back and forth to see the equivalence for yourself.

Now, according to my counting, the total number of sims in present day Jeogeot, adding in the Korean Channel and Mos Aisley related ones, appears to be 791. The total number of sims in Maebaleia appears to be 678. More amazing stuff, seemingly: the ratio 791:678 is the same as 7:6 (!), with the common denominator of each number being 113, the 30th prime number (791/7 = 113, 678/7 = 113).

Gotta repeat it: how cool *is* that!?*

CORRECTION (1/26/10): Thanks to Kou Umaga’s diligent research *once again*, I realized I had counted the Jeogeot sims up wrong and that they actually number 776 and not the 791 I give here. But in rechecking I think my total for Maebaleia is correct, at 678. So do these new totals take away all the mystery here? Well, there’s certainly the same 43×36 grid to deal with, and that’s the most major thing, along with the similar shapes of each. I’ll keep crunching the numbers when I get inspiration, though.

*****

OK, so in this blog last summer, I already created a rather in-depth study regarding the two continents based on the idea that if you spin Maebaleia around 180 degrees and again set it side-by-side with a non-rotated Jeogeot, the shapes seem to correlate in various meaningful ways.

Speaking on this subject at the time, Hucka D. says that the continents are actually two aspects of one thing animated, representing a kind of Taijitu relationship.

Perhaps like this idea, then:

And at the time I even had some strong ideas about what the two different colored dots within each half of this Taijitu-type relationship might represent, namely the very real and influential community of Chilbo for Jeogeot, and the largely imaginary community of Crabwoo for Maebaleia, a kind of psychic reflection of Chilbo. A detailed discussion of this subject is found here.

Indeed, on the updated maps below, as framed within the same 36×43 grid, we can understand that, yes, the two communities (shaded in yellow above), while not actually overlapping in the relationship, do share a common sim border, and form an L shaped association of sims when their respective 2 sim cores are joined.

Toggle between here and here to better see what I’m getting at.

And then there’s the awfully weird Rabbit Holes of each continent to deal with. On the above map again, I mark the sims where these holes are found on each continent in white. The two sims — Blackmount for Jeogeot and Ulyanovsk Oblast for Maebaleia — don’t overlap in this case, but there may be a hidden, geomantic relationship still. I’m working on it.

To be continued…

*****

* To make this a little odder, I’ve already mentioned the ratio 7:6 in this blog in reference to the areas of bordering Frank and Herman Parks in RL. I have a feeling I’m now going to directly compare the two 7:6 relationships, RL with SL. Note: see bolded correction in main body of post above.


New Digs in Mogwa

New rental in Mogwa, fairly near Yeot. Perhaps close enough to make Sapphire happy enough to stick around for a while longer. Also a new base for biking the northern part of Jeogeot — that’s the plan anyway.

Quite nice here, really. Garden space, even a sky box. Got all my Jasper collage series up inside.


Mogwa Base…

More strong evidence of the presence of The Bill in Crabwoo and general Maebaleia Lake District area, this time in the form of a Howl’s Moving Castle just complete enough presently to show one of its chicken/rooster-like legs.

What the creator is hoping the final product will look like…

Peter’s Mound again at sunrise.

Some shots of my new Mogwa neighborhood at the Muse Village.

Looking back on my “Kittlesen Apt.” from across the compound.

Abandoned greenhouse found nearby.

Fish pond with koi. Quite nice. I can see staying at the Muse Village for at least another week or two, hehe.

Then in biking south on nearby Route 9 (proximity to this road is one reason I decided to rent there), found this “ponygirl” stuck on the side of the road. I thought this odd, because I’d gone up this road about an hour before and she was already stuck at the same place.

Also near my Mogwa apartment is one of the numerous galleries owned by avatar Earl Dinkin in Second Life, this time focusing on participatory art tableaux at the bottom of a natural lake in Masan. This one is called Everything For The Complete Space Traveler; I plan to visit this space again soon — preliminary pics for now.


Jeogeot North, 01

Strange farmhouse (I think) found in Eunhaeng, a couple of sims north of my new Mogwa rental unit and reached quite quickly by Baker via biking up Route 9. Since I’ve taken these pictures, much more talk about this farmhouse and accompanying treehouse nearby have been generated for this blog. See here for some of Hucka D.’s more recent thoughts on the subject. In short, he’s claiming that the farmhouse — perhaps both the treehouse and the farmhouse (there’s also been discussion or hints that the 2 structures are actually 1 structure somehow!) — use to be owned by the famed Ruuster, who may be the same as The Bill.

Moving on… we’ll get to all that soon enough!

A single bookcase exists in the farmhouse, with titles on the binder in another language than English. Korean, perhaps? Hucka D./Sapphire have since stated that the true nature of the books here are purposely masked, perhaps by Ruuster himself.

Then in the treehouse right next door, Baker finds oodles of books whose titles *can* be read, and are all classics of the English language.

A look north over more wastelands. In fact, Sapphire has taken to call this region the Wastelands of eastern Jeogeot. Confusing, perhaps, since SL already has a famous Wastelands.

Baker sits on a bench beside a small pool at the base of the treehouse.


Jeogeot North, 02

On the same night, Baker heads further north across the wastelands surrounding the 2 Eunheung structures already visited to reach two isolated mountains of about equal height in Sooseunhwa…

… and Gundeulbawe.

On the west side of the latter mountain was found a curious, dry waterfall with a number of differently colored, large boulders beside it.

Baker almost immediately recognizes a similarity with Cam Spout and nearby Sampson’s Rocks of England’s Lake District, since his user incorporated pictures of this waterfall in several of his 10×10 collages (found in the Edwardston Station Gallery), namely collages 08 and 09 of the Newton series.

The water here simply stops near the top of the rock that should back a waterfall.

The water near the bottom of the dry falls is strangely much bluer than the rapidly flowing lavender shaded water coming from the top.

But then past the pond, it resumes its former lavender color and rapid flow.

Also near the dry waterfall, and owned by the same group (Emerald Vision, with the land name being Emerald Center — again curiously, similar to Sapphire), is Ro Sheen’s Coffee House.

Baker can see hanging here sometimes.

Another mountain a bit further north reached the same night — actually more of a ridge. But Baker decides to save exploration for another time, having enough to absorb already from his trip.


She never showed…

“Sapphire, does me living in the Muse Village make you happier? Will you stick around now?”

Hucka D.:

She’ll be here in a minute. Combing her hair for the press.

bb:

You think she’ll like it?

Hucka D.:

Yes. It’s where she wanted you to be. I see you found a TILE waterfall as well. Or a future waterfall… right now it’s a dry one.

bb:

And a parallel to Sampson’s Stones.* And, dag gonnit, looking for pics of Sampson’s Stones and I got a stupid virus. Took me two hours to get rid of it!

Hucka D.:

Those stones are cursed, you know. Let’s look at Newton 09, then.

bb:

Actually, Cam Spout, as I’m checking when inserting the link above, first appears in Newton 08, Hucka D. That’s one you can enlarge to see the details.

Hucka D. (looking): Complicated. What does it mean?

bb:

I remember that Cam Spout acts as an alternate outlet for the water in Foxes Tarn. Right now, Cam Spout appears to be a little dry, just like the waterfall is absent in Gundeulbawe. Those different colored rocks must mean something, Hucka D. They’re obviously the parallel to Sampson’s Stones. It must be a portal back to the Lake District.

Hucka D.:

Yes it is. But be careful of rl viruses again (smiles).

bb:

I’m going to give up my Yd Island rental, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Destiny. In the book.

bb:

Anything left to find out about The Hole?

Hucka D.:

You can always rent again.

bb:

I also like the Wastelands of Eunhaeng and Solchan. Abandoned Zindra land can be pretty cool, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Go back.

bb:

Sapphire not here yet?

Hucka D.:

No, she just phoned and said she would not make it tonight.

bb:

But you’ve been standing here talking to me.

Hucka D.:

Nevertheless…

bb:

Yeah. So, maybe we should just talk about Sapphire…

Hucka D.:

She is a good egg.

bb:

She seems nice. She claims to be the ruler or former ruler of all of eastern Jeogeot. The part that was formed first…

Hucka D.:

She is. She was. She will be. Yeot. Wastelands. Museland. Coffee House. I am interested to see what develops first. Next, I mean.

bb:

Anything else tonight?

Hucka D.:

If you leave Yd Island, Greenup Yd will not return. Sapphire will stay here, though.

bb:

That’s fine. I like Greenup Yd, but he’s hard to understand a lot of the time. And I know the reader or readers of this blog might get frustrated with him. Like Petemond before him.

Hucka D.:

Good that you’re a bit outside of Chilbo influence in your new digs. That can act as a gravity. That’s why Sunklands is important as well. You operate outside Chilbo, but have a connection inside as well. As it should be.

bb:

Because of the timelines.

Hucka D.:

Yes. (pause) Queen.

bb:

Latifa?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Bees. You were attacked. My bees.

bb:

I don’t think so, Hucka D. The Bee.

Hucka D.:

Yes. T’is true. Got your attention.

*****

bb:

Hucka D., I’m wondering how these two structures look so similar on the grid map of Eunhaeng

when they’re by different creators and look nothing like each other in virtual person? One’s a treehouse and one’s a farmhouse, it seems.

Hucka D.:

Only 2 real structures left in Eunhaeng, one with books that can’t be read and the second having books that can. You better get some rest. Thanks and good night. Sapphire will show up tomorrow or the day after. She has something to do with your trip tonight anyway.

bb:

Thank you.

Nice…

“I am the eastern half of Jeogeot, before the turn around the Korean Channel. I am the older of the two. I am Sapphire. I have a wasteful land in the middle. Night and day, even but opposite. Taijitu. Evils show up but turn to Elvis in daytime. Sideburns appear and all is better. Books can be read again. Rocking chair for sore feet. Look toward the mountains. Treehouse. No birds circling in and out of house. Redbird… bluebird. Red, blue, gate, high. Missouri. 1 and 2, St. Louis and Kansas City. Then light. Better.”

bb:

Hi Sapphire. Nice speech.

Sapphire:

Missouri is not all that better… well. Sick. Bad.

bb:

Grassy seems to like Missouri, Sapphire.

Sapphire:

Hucka D. knows better. Joplin. Lead. Mine. Silver. Bad. Wastelands. Kansas. Overlook Kansas. Not so well.

bb:

Sapphire:

We move out into the plains carrying our memories of Missouri. We miss Missouri. On the plains we must adjust. Then Kansas, bluejay. Daylight. All is better. Evils are abated. Two plots of similar size, almost same size. Dark and Light. Newton…

bb:

Newton 09 and Jasper 09. Joplin, then.

Sapphire:

From the second lighter one you move to Emerald properties. That is where I cannot go. West. Jade is up there as well. West is up.

bb:

I think directions are getting mixed up as well here.

Sapphire:

Up to England. Cam Spout. Sampson’s Stones. Sampson… Raphael. Emerald.

bb:

Oh *yeah.* That makes sense.

Hucka D.:

Go back. Anything else tonight Sapphire?

Sapphire:

Yes. (pause)

Hucka D.:

Bees?

Sapphire:

No. (pause)

*****

Sapphire:

The farmhouse is haunted by red and blue mixed all up. Inner mixed up with outer. Confusion. I am Sapphire.

*****

bb:

That would be a nice ending, but I must continue. This must be the house of Ruuster (!)

Hucka D.:

R110. This is where it begins, baker b. Congratulations. One house is unclear, the other clear. Vision better. Plains to see. Ruuster. Rooster Teeth. Rooster Springs. Don. Henly. Eagles, see. Lone Man and Lone Wo-man. Ruuster *knows*. Man Wo-man.

bb:

Powerman as well. Hands. One missing. Ruuster. R U U S T E R. And then springs and then teeth. Red and blue. All mixed up. (Flipside)


New Chapter: Vortextra…

“Cam Spout is being highlighted (again) Hucka D.”

Hucka D.:

Sapphire is here again. Hold on…

Sapphire:

High Baker B. Nice nite.

bb:

Hello Sapphire. Are you in a good mood tonight?

Sapphire:

I feel better. You have rented in my side of Jeogeot, and have begun exploring. You have already found the former farmhouse of Ruuster of R110 fame. Good. You have found the parallel of Cam Spout and Sampson’s Stones. Great. This is TILE. Waterfall. The marbles go up and down at once: yellow to red to green to blue and back. Cycle. Perpetual. Escher. TILE. (pause)

bb:

Thanks for that. Is it a portal into new collages? Probably can’t answer that.

Sapphire:

No. Now to Pudding Hill. Here’s Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

High again, I mean, hi again baker b. Good you rented in Pudding Hill. You have found the center again for real this time. Vortextra. Dan I. Dan The First. You are integrating Mayland and Jeogeot at once. Here’s Sapphire…

Sapphire:

High. Rounding the Korean Channel is was and will be tricky. Brainard the seed who did or does not want to become a tree to deal with. Smart, clever, vane, emotionally immature. Immature because he is a seed[, you see]. Dan The First… good you figured that out baker b. Baker Beach. It’s not your neighbor Dan but he figures into this a bit. It’s Dan The First of Mayland fame. He must be brought into the picture. He developed the first slice of land that became your Mayland with your Brainard and Altana Valley. Edna is also involved in this through her Altana story. Look that over again.

bb:

Thank you again Sapphire. I have some questions about Pudding Hill, perhaps.

Hucka D.:

Axe away.

bb:

OK. We’ve already gone through the whole Little Robert Plant Variant-Marty/Lemon story now, which resulted, in essence, in Carrcass-3. Now Carrcass-4 is coming up and I assume its gravity is great, as has been the case with all Carrcasses before. Sapphire has claimed she is the main, guiding spirit of the new Carrcass.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

What’s is Sapphire’s relationship to Vortextra that I am attempting to rent now?

Hucka D.:

Are you axing me?

bb:

Whoever. You or Sapphire.

Hucka D.:

Vortextra is the hole Brainard disappeared into to become the Tree he should have become. But he didn’t go into this hole as planned. Pudding Hole — from Pudding Hill. Good that you own or rent 2 places there. Rainbow Sphere.

bb:

Brainard is the Rainbow Sphere.

Hucka D.:

Yes. He is a variable extended from the east side of Jeogeot, the one more associated with Dan The First, who uncovered the first slice of Mayland. Jeogeot has, for all purposes, absorbed the undeveloped mythology of Mayland on the Mayland-Norde world. The only advantage of the latter, or one of the only advantages, is that it is a globe and not a flat grid, like Second Life. It is the same size as Mars, but the Red Mars and not the fictional Blue Mars. It is the 4th planet of the Sirian system. Mythos is the 3rd planet, also known as Jefferson, as Mayland-Norde is known as Madison.

bb:

Interesting (seemingly). Second Life is more related to this Mayland-Norde globe than Mythos or perhaps Earth. And the main connection is Mayland continent overlapping the Jeogeot continent.

Hucka D.:

Yes. The Bobos do not figure into this as much. Blue.

bb:

Maybe the Bobos are the original chilled and more blue colored avatars, Hucka D. The ones St. Lemon sent Brainard to cool off with his control of the weather.

Hucka D.:

And as you’ve guessed, the name Brainard is more a species, Sirian in origin. This particular brainard is named Ray, who indeed controlled the weather of Big Sink and was sent in by St. Lemon. Sort of.

bb:

The group Away The Ray wanted to do him in for controlling the weather and turning everything cold. They wanted to turn him into the tree he should have become?

Hucka D.;

Yes. Away The Ray inside the somewhat less secret group called Ray Of Darkness, who claimed Ray was creating a Dark or Black Earth. Second Life, or the Linden Grid, was a way to control Ray. And *that* was Ruuster’s project. You know where Ruuster lived — he lived on the eastern side of Jeogeot, in the safe realm of Sapphire’s, who is the same as the Mayland Alma. You can now tie all this back into the Booker T. Archive.

bb:

Thank you. That’s why the old Linden Grid map from, maybe late 2003 was underneath the farmhouse in Eunhaeng. Ruuster put it there for you to find. Or maybe Sapphire.

Sapphire:

Ruuster.

bb:

This has something to do with the Solomon Sea, I assume, which I’ve theoried — or we’ve theorized — is the epicenter of the imposed Second Life grid. And it’s directly tied into the Temple of Solomon. So… Ray of Darkness correctly identifies Ray with Black Earth, which must be countered by White Earth. And these are the two pillars at the entrance to Solomon’s Temple, or Boaz and Joaquin.

Sapphire:

That’s me in the center between the two pillars. I am Isis who is Sirius. I am Alma who is Alabama. Boaz.

*****

“Sapphire, are you the same as Jeogeot in the above Tarot card? I’m assuming you are, and that Ray the brainard is the black pillar (west side; “The West”) and the east side of Jeogeot is the white pillar. But you are still the ruler of the whole.”

Sapphire;

Yes. You are asking good questions tonite. Grate. I had to deal with Brainard… Ray. It was tough!

bb:

And Ruuster helped.

Sapphire:

I would have been in trouble without Ruuster. He is Noz.

bb:

Noz like “nose”. Like the completed second half of the English alphabet.

Sapphire:

When rounding the Korean Channel a Rift was encountered. War, even. Dan The First. Twentysix. Korean. (Six).

bb:

Does this have something to do with the Kali Rift?

Sapphire:

*Yes.*

Hucka D.:

We better end. Dig more up about Ruuster and the Sea of Solomon or the Solomon Sea, Baker B. Your island is next to it (after all).

bb:

Thanks to you both.

Sapphire:

Yes, Ruuster.


Updates

Now rent *3* 1024 parcels in Pudding Hill, and am moving the bulk of Big E pictures to that sim. By February the Big E Gallery of Aotearoa will be no more. For now, I still have the Gallery at the Temple of TILE there, along with the “Where Are We On That?” exhibit.*

Moved to Pudding Hill already: “Edwardston Station Gallery” (home of the art or collage 10×10, formerly in the center of Aotearoa’s Big E Gallery), and “Big E Gallery” (newer, smaller, version combining the 10 story, 50 meter high “E” made up of Korean Channel sims with several b_hivia modules — a continuation of the merger of the two within the Big E Gallery of Aotearoa).

I don’t plan to exhibit “Where are we on that?” in the new location, nor the Gallery at the Temple of TILE most likely. The Temple of TILE may be moved to another 1024 in another location, though (Yd Island?? Possibility).

New stuff:

* Small side gallery housed within the 30x30x30 version of the Edwardston Station Gallery now set up in Pudding Hill called “Down The Rabbit Hole.” Features pictures from Sunklands (formerly in the “gallery offices” space of the giant Aotearoa gallery), and also the Lake District of Maebaleia (formerly inside the Big E letter in Aotearoa). Connecting the two series of pictures is an abstract representation of the Rabbit Hole itself: a 60+ meter long pipe. Hard to explain without seeing but it’s kind of the same idea as found in some early versions of the Temple of TILE where I wrapped pipes around the outside of the 30x30x30 cube. Here we only have a pipe going around 1/2 of the cube, connecting the otherwise separate exhibits on the vacant parts of floors 2 and 5.

* Sunklands Central:
In the Victorian house set up on the lowest of the three 1024s I now rent in Pudding Hill, or the one Hucka D. said was the home of Vortextra, the epicenter of the 8 sim long Big Sink of Jeogeot. I’m very excited to have the opportunity to rent this property, and from a company (LaMa Estates) I’ve had successful dealings with before. I also rent another 1024 from them a little higher up on the hill in Pudding Hill (this is where I’ve set up the Edwardston Station Gallery again). Just to complete, the 3rd 1024, the last to be rented and even further up the hill from the other two, is being rented from another, less known group, and where I’ve placed the smaller version of the Big E Gallery.

For now, Sunklands Central is set up much like the House of Truth in Noru — and also, now, my small office in Chilbo: just some basic pictures about Jeogeot and Sunklands displayed, showing the relationship of Chilbo, Korean Channel and Sunklands on the Jeogeot continent, and also a more detailed map of Sunklands where the position of my galleries within are displayed. Probably should offer SL maps of all continents here as well (reminder to self). ESG picture with landmark also present here, along with pic of Baker Bloch’s discovery of the Korean Channel in May, 2009. For a brief time, upstairs I had the Wall of Ass. (on wall in back), but for now it is empty (the Wall of Ass. is now in the Big E Gallery of Pudding Hill). Because I rent 2 1024s from the same realty company, I can use the prims of one lot for the other lot as well. So most of my prims alotted with this 1024 are being used on the other parcel housing the Edwardston Station Gallery, as well as a small ground cabin and a bit of landscaping. I also have some minimal landscaping accomplished directly below the Big E Gallery in Pudding Hill.

Challenges:

The exhibit of the Edwardston Station Gallery — the art or collage 10×10 — will not be changing so that’s more of a museum, even, than a gallery, or, perhaps better, a permanent exhibit of a gallery. This was not always the case in my Second Life existence, since I only completed this work last March, with the 30x30x30 cube version of the ESG created shortly afterwards. Do I plan more collages in the future? Certainly I’ll do more collages sometime, but I might give it a year or two or three before beginning similar series found in the 10×10. But I’m certainly open to creating more independent collages in a less ambitious setting, such as I’ve done a bit, in a minimal way even, for more recent blog posts (many of which are included in the 18 part Wall of Ass., actually).

Let’s bring in Hucka D. and perhaps Sapphire to close.

Hucka D.:

You are now in the center of the center. Aotearoa was good in its time. Now this is better. You are completely purified, as Little Robert Plant Variant was before you. Now you just have Marty to deal with.

bb:

So… Plant moved to Sunklands and created something equivalent to what I’m creating in its heart: the Pudding Hill gallery complex.

Hucka D.:

Yes, but for him it was a tree. The Tree.

bb:

“The Tree” can only be created with the sacrifice of the seed? Is the seed the Big E Gallery, then?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Big E, like Big Sky, was too big to care. Avatars had a hard time with it, those who came. Daunting. And needing of refinement, which you’re doing. So you’re planting the seed now. Plant.

bb:

I don’t see giving up my parcel that corresponds with Vortextra, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Never give that one up. Never.

bb:

I probably should just go ahead and buy it.

Hucka D.:

Not yet. Good you have rented it from an established company. They were personally hesitant to buy it because [the location is not particularly desirable]. But it is flat and it is square. Sunklands Central now in truth. I am excited!

bb:

Is Plant excited as well?

Hucka D.:

Sure. Marty too. But he has more tricks to show you soon.

bb:

I have some questions about what pictures to put in what exhibit, Hucka D. “Down The Rabbit Hole” certainly should be where it is — no doubt about that.

Hucka D.:

You have put up the correct pictures for that. Good. Now to the Big E Gallery, the newer, cleaner version. Wall of Ass. at top — good. Within — where do you start? This is the story of Karoz beyond the “Where are we on that?” exhibit. He went to Jeogeot; was born on Jeogeot really. Split time between exploring Chilbo and exploring the Korean Channel. Found a portal between Jeogeot/Korean Channel and Maebaleia/Blue Feather Sea. Found weaker, psychic double to Chilbo in Crabwoo. You haven’t even explored that fully yet. The Bill figure in here. The Bill founded Crabwoo. But Karoz found his Circle of Limitation which is the same as Norumbega. He was based in Noru at the time, as was the whole Baker family, including me. Chilbo is within that circle, as is the lower part of the Korean Channel. But when Crabwoo was discovered and the parallel with Chilbo, another door was opened, and this represents the door between the lower and upper parts of the Korean Channel, or what you encapsulated as the schwa part (lower) and the e part (upper). From this tension Little Robert Plant Variant was born, who was *not* an SL avatar, like Karoz. But nevertheless, he replaced Karoz, which led from Nowtown/Zen City through Sternberg and X-ville/Y-borough to Sunklands itself. The E, the letter of stories, is more about the road to Sunklands instead of Sunklands itself. So from the middle of your e in your new Big E gallery you should switch to the Sunklands exhibit in the ESG (“Down The Rabbit Hole”). Then fill the rest of the E up with something else. Chilbo pics? More Korean Channel pics? My suggestion might be maps.

bb:

Thanks for that, Hucka D. (pause) I wonder if I could ask about The Bill more, since I’ve obviously found more evidence of their existence in Crabwoo with the partially completed Howl’s Moving Castle and its chicken/rooster leg. You’ve claimed that Magellan Linden is referring to The Bill in his Nascera apology note re breaking of the transporter there, which has been directly linked to the same in Villeneuve.

Hucka D.:

Lemon wanted The Bill to be brought in, not Marty. (pause)

bb:

There’s something I’m missing about Maebaleia and Crabwoo…

Hucka D.:

If you look over your typing, you’ll see I just referenced that lack.

bb:

OK, yeah.

Hucka D.:

The Bill and Ruuster are essentially one and the same. Like Magellan Linden they have visited every continent, and were there even since their beginnings. However, as you now know, Maebaleia is *older* than Jeogeot, even though on the Linden Grid, the former is formed after the latter. Something very pure is found on Maebaleia that you can’t get on Jeogeot, even though Jeogeot is now truly your virtual home away from home.

bb:

This has to do with the numbers 6 and 7, I’m assuming. Maebaleia is 6 and Jeogeot is 7. Where is the ONE?

Hucka D.:

Is it the Blue Feather Sea? Your questions about exhibit pictures revolve around these metaphysical questions.

*****

bb:

I suppose it would have to be the Blue Feather Sea on one level.

Hucka D.:

Put the Blue Feather Sea cube in your galleries. Thank you and good night.

bb:

Good night to you as well. Thanks.

* Part of the movement process is finishing the web version of this exhibit, which I’ve now done. See here.


Pudding Hill Gallery Complex: Some Prelim Pics…

Newer, smaller version of the Big E Gallery (right) and the newly placed Edwardston Station Gallery (left) with added tubing. Both are situated on non-adjacent 1024 square meter parcels in the Pudding Hill sim.

Ground view directly underneath 30x30x30 Edwardston Station Gallery, with small cabin and pool and some trees. This is right next to another registered gallery called Tryad Mesmeriser’s Sculptures. More on that proximity soon.

Ground underneath Big E Gallery. Giant waterfall extends from the top of the gallery all the way down to the hillside, forming a small pool. No structure here; didn’t have enough prims left. 😦

3rd and lowest 1024 parcel I now rent in Pudding Hill, also owned by LaMa Estates like the one with the Edwardston Station Gallery. This same parcel is what Hucka D. has called Vortextra, perhaps the most important location of any in Sunklands as a whole, the center of it all. I’m calling the parcel “Sunklands Central”. Very excited to be renting there. 🙂

“Sunklands Central” with Edwardston Station Gallery floating in the sky behind it.

ESG and Big E Gallery again, looking down now.


“Where Are We On That?”: The Story of 4 Zip 5 Avatars, 1 in Spirit

After months and months and months, *finally* have added the pictures to the web posts for this exhibit that ran in my Healy gallery (“Something To CHRO About”) from mid-April to mid-June last year. Admittedly, it’s still probably the best, short introduction to the subjects of this blog. Enjoy!

Nice to have cool neighbors…

Interesting art in Tryad Mesmeriser’s gallery right next door to my Edwardston Station Gallery plot. Unfortunately it looks like, as of today, Mr. Mesmeriser has decided to downsize in Pudding Hill, with much of his art work deleted from the sim. I attempted to encourage him to stay via inworld im, and he replied that it may come down to a decision between this place and one in Foxglove on the Sansara continent. So it’s good to know he’s at least not leaving SL, even if he may be leaving me alone soon as the only registered gallery in the sim. But perhaps not for long (see this post above).

Inspired by Tyrad’s art, I decided to take another look at the knetic sculpture on the other side of Route 10 from my Sunklands Central parcel by Sambroxton String. I appreciated it even more in this reappraisal; the textures are quite, um, mesmerizing.

And then in exploring the neighbor’s land to the west, found the giant complex seemingly taking up the whole of Craggen Maw to be deserted — more abandoned land, perhaps because of the result of adult content once more, although it doesn’t say it in the land’s description this time. Owner is — was — a group called Swiss Second Life Bank. Yeah, sounds like a good cover for a porn operation, hehe. Just joking, SSLB. Anyway, although I think the place is *way* too big and, if I remember correctly from before, banned people from passing through without a pass, I must admit that some of the techo-rave stuff is cool. I also kind of like the red/green/blue triangle based pyramid pictured below, with a gold plated top seemingly. Looks like a giant swimming pool inside the transparent dome.

The techo-rave interior of the main building on the abandoned land. Called the CC Club — unsure about the relationship with SWISS Second Life Bank group that actually owned the land. Well, something to study up on later; will be returning for sure, since it’s right next door to my Sunklands Central parcel in Pudding Hill. My parcel borders their old land on 2 of its 4 sides.

Animated dance floor. Very hypnotic! Can you move Baker Blinker? Do you need assistance in prying your eyes away from the patterns? hehe.

54 prim Metropolis type woman on the top of the building.

Then later that night it was on to “visit” another neighbor, one in Pudding Hill this time and right next door, once more, to the Edwardston Station Gallery. This is a music joint called the Pudding Club, appropriately enough, owned by the members of the RL band called UK Heights, based out of Petersfield, UK. Inworld they call themselves SL Heights. I’ve actually mentioned them already in this blog, in a post from last October when I first probed the Pudding Hill sim. From the number of little green dots on my SL map, I knew that a concert was taking place in the Pudding Club next door (I had just returned from Craggen Maw, I believe), and decided to just go over and take in a few songs. Listened to some very nice cover songs and original songs in the progressive rock view — can’t remember the name of the artist offhand, but it wasn’t UK Heights themselves (sorry: SL Heights). But I certainly plan to go back, and hopefully a gig will be happening this weekend as well. Plan to download UK Heights’ latest album, with an ambient/trance bend, as well. Maybe down some more of that free champagne Morty was handing out Friday night as well. 🙂

Here’s to trees (clink)!


To Rabbit Hole and W. Side of Big Sink, 01

We begin this trip just north of the Big E Gallery property, where the giant waterfall that starts at the top of the gallery completes its 145 meter drop, forming a small pool with no outlet. Couldn’t stock the pool with any fish, though; as I have already indicated, I’ve run out of prims for this parcel.

About 70 meters north Baker encounters a grave stone, with this pen (terarrium?) beside it containing 2 turtles, their water bowls, and some turtle eggs. Unfortunately I cannot access the property directly to report more, but I did think of Zappa’s precisely 2 minute long Centerville segment of his 200 Motels film once again (when have I last *not* thought about Centerville daily? hehe), and the fact that two Turtles (Flo and Eddie) are “trapped” or “penned” there as well during this time.

But moving quickly on, across the seemingly cursed Tuatara sim (noted for its lag in this blog last summer, and now the home to several gathering places, causing additional lag I’m sure), to Mount Owen to its immediate east. Appropriate to the name, it forms the center of a high plateau (elevation around 125 meters) between Big Sink and Aotearoa Sink to the south, and Blackmount Sink to the north. As one can still see in the terrain view of the SL world map, there’s also a message terraformed into the upper, sloping part of this sim: “Love KIC” or maybe just “Love KC”.*

But in checking behind himself today Baker finds that the terrain over the entire sim has been smoothed out, probably because it is up for sale now. But at least he took some pictures the other day before the erasure.

This is a pretty cool picture, I think, showing the relationship of the now eliminated message and the infamous Rabbit Hole of Blackmount just ahead.

Of course, Baker has to revisit the mystery spot while in the area. Everything is still the way he remembers it: the picture of the rabbits is placed just to the north, like before. Actually, in checking behind himself again today, Baker is unable to find the several, small coins he recollects floating in the air a bit above the hole’s top.

Looking back into Mount Owen from the Rabbit Hole.

Exploring further west near the Tuatara-Morton Mains line, Baker reaches this beauty spot of lush vegetation. He decides to save further investigation in this direction for another day, though, and begins to head back toward Big Sink, wishing to visit its western side tonight.

He takes a snapshot through the nice trees before leaving.

*****

* This is sort of strange, though, as well, since the 2 minute long Centerville segment of 200 Motels is also at the very center of the audiovisual synchronicity Kansas City Life. Could “KC” here stand for the “Kansas City” part of this name, which we’ve already speculated in this blog may also signify “Second Life” (Kansas City being the “second” city of Missouri, after St. Louis)? If so, it probably has something directly to do with the nearby Rabbit Hole. Difficult to gage the power of that thing.


To Rabbit Hole and W. Side of Big Sink, 02

Baker finds a lot of empty space on the west side of Tuatara and into Wetas especially. More abandoned land. He’s heading back down the slope, soon to encounter the steeper grade that signals a reentry into Big Sink proper, west-side style.

But Baker follows the ridge line a bit more before diving into the giant sink again. Seeing the edge of Felix Meritis’ Monastery, centered in Lill Burn Valley (westernmost of the 6 identified sinks of Sunklands) , he knows that he is almost completely around its edge now.

So he heads down into it. Still in Wetas (but about 50 meters below where he was in the above picture), two queer bullets named “Bill” grab his attention. More reference to “The Bills” or “The Bill” per chance? Probably. Strange pink pig putting out quite a lot of pink particles here, as well as a plain green cone. No relationship, though, between any of the creators of these 3 objects, although I certainly might be missing something. They’re all near the property lines of a 2048 parcel whose description reads “Leaves of Light”. No info on the group is available.

The higher of the two smiling Bills. Wylde Bills (since it is the *west* side of Big Sink — sorry)?

Some high prim clothes found on the western lip of the sink. A veritable Hollywood Boulevard.

Memorial to a man who died oh too young in Katipo now, on the south side of Route 10. The northwest corner of Big Sink lies in this sim.

The gold topped pyramid indicates he’s not far from home now.

Back home in Pudding Hill, Baker looks from the north facing transparent wall toward Big E. Same colors as the pyramid minus the gold top… hmmmm.

Then, to complete this two post tour, a look down toward the bottom of the waterfall just below. End meets up with beginning.


She might be/might not be…

“I am Sapphire.”

bb:

Hi Sapphire. How do you like my move to the center of Sunklands? Sunklands Central, now.

Sapphire:

I am… (pause)

Hucka D.:

Goodnight baker b. She is happy.

bb:

She have to go elsewhere?

Hucka D.:

Brushing her teeth for the press.

bb:

Can we talk just a little about Carrcass-4 now?

Hucka D.:

Talk all you want. (smiles)

bb:

Sapphire has said she is the main guiding spirit for Carrcass-4.

Hucka D.:

She may not be lying.

bb:

Will it be Colors?

Hucka D.:

Yes. You just need to choose the right alleyways to enter. Blocked here and blocked there but not blocked there. That’s your opening… as usual. You’re use to this now.

bb:

Yes. What of Sapphire’s mother/father or aunt/uncle, Nathaniel and Nataly?

Hucka D.:

Oh they’re still around if needed.

bb:

I have an urge to go back to the Nautilus continent but not so much Yd Island, although I want to *stay* on Yd Island for now (my 1024 there).

Hucka D.:

Yes. Stay on Yd Island. It’s the oldest part of SL… no, older than old. pre-old. Pre-Ancient it’s so old. Maebaleia is the oldest. Lake District and all. Then Jeogeot. It may start with that 10 sim hole, though. The Hole. Go back… explore. Don’t forget The Measure. Don’t forget the Micro Hole.

bb:

Sapphire claims she was born inside the Micro Hole, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

She might be telling the truth.

bb:

I think we need to talk more and more and more about The Bill.

Hucka D.:

The Bill surround your Second Lyfe like an ionosphere, penetrating here and there as they will. They are a Big Synk.

bb:

You’ve said The Bill and Ruuster are one and the same.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

And I think you said they have at least a partial appearance of a chicken or rooster.

Hucka D.:

Rooster, yes.

bb:

A type of counterpart to Billina of SID’s 1st Oz and the Oz mythology. Friends as one.

Hucka D.:

Yes, friends as one. Their taxis came too late. Yellow. Dry. Desert… deadly. Water evaporating. Then Oz.

bb:

But now it seems tied to Howl’s Moving Castle. I didn’t realize that connection until I found the partially completed Castle in Crabwoo, of all places, w/ one chicken type leg attached already. ONE.

Hucka D.:

The Bill come and go as they will.

bb:

Is this Bill Hill?

Hucka D.:

*Yes.*

bb:

Bill Hill seems attached to the creation of the Linden Grid, which may be the same as Linden World or Lime World. Before that we might have had Lemon World now, though.

Hucka D.:

Seasons the salad but wilts the lettuce. Pro and con for it[, then].

bb:

What is the relation of Lemon World and Lime World, then? Is Lime the same as a Linden? Obviously it is in Britain.

Hucka D.:

Everywhere. Lime… Lyme. Life… Lyfe. See?

bb:

I think so. Lyme points to Lyme disease and ticks, as in Tic Toc, another friend to Dorothy, a best friend even.

Hucka D.:

Then (in moving to NY) you have Chasm Falls. 444444. Falling into decimals. Tyle. TILE. Emerald Center. Titusville. Henry Wheeler as before or after Wilson. Forwards and backwards at once. Lemon and lime.

bb:

You said Lemon brought in The Bill.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

Marty didn’t want them around?

Hucka D.:

Marty wanted The Beetles to be top dog. Obvious reasons. Lemon wanted to bring in The Others. Lemon brought in The Bill, who are multidimensional. Billfork… Villeneuve. Magellan Linden. Transporter. 8 rocks which become 9. Martin. Purple. 9th. Alphabet then 9th. A/Z and M/N. Arizona and New Mexico. Billfork Core.

bb:

But then we have Hidalgo.

Hucka D.:

You don’t think about Blinkerton very much any more. I was.

bb:

You were Blinkerton, I know. But you were also Hucka D. before the death of Blinkerton. You are a walk-in?

*****

Hucka D.:

Yes?

bb:

So Lemon brought in The Bill or allowed them to enter. Sunklands is born here in a way.

Hucka D.:

Yes… Sunklands.

bb:

But created from Norumbega by Peter. Catastrophe.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Cut diagonally. Highlighted now in the collective conscious by Haiti.

bb:

Could happen here. Already has happened. New Madrid.

Hucka D.:

Sunklands is a little way to help.

bb:

A series of smaller catastrophes to avoid a greater, more devastating one.

Hucka D.:

Yes, in a way.

bb:

From the other [U.S.] direction we move from Idaho to Montana at the same time. We then find 3 buttes who become 4 beauts. We enter an Oblong space. Cleared out of older images. We focus in on Birdtail Butte to find England and Seathwaite Fell, amazingly. Only can happen in Collage World. (pause) We move down to the top of the England mtn. We move up to the England mtn. to the top. Up and down at once. Monkey and Man together at top. Grave. Ives. Burl not Charles. Passing through the graves in a green oblong box full of non-green letters. Ireland. Forwards and backwards at once…. Wilson and Wheeler. Man and Monkey on Green Gable looking on. Death of the Council of 8.

Hucka D.:

Yes. We better end.

bb:

Thank you.


Dr. Blood And The Glop (People)…

“We talked about The Bill or Ruuster last night. Tonight maybe we should chat more about Dr. Blood. Are you game?”

Hucka D.:

In the center were The Bakers, and me, the purple alien with 5 children. But I was also my father and so owned the whole continent this small and undesirable plot was located on, as well as the twinned continent.* One of the 5 children “escaped” and became Peter of Norumbega, originally of the Corsica continent, a different story altogether and one you should have help on in creating. You know who you are. This 5th child decided to become white instead of black. Not black like African-American, although that figures in a bit as well. The 5th became a Martin. It was triggered by Guy Lombardo. I am Ruby here.

bb:

Ruby… you mean Mabel King. I’ve gotta see Porgy and Bess sometime, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

I created my famous pies, true, but I did not do the advertising. Instead that would be Chesaw. Chesaw was my marketing manager.

bb:

And this is when you lived with the alternate Bakers who were married — Baker Bloch and Baker Blinker. And at the very center of Sunklands or Big Sink, where I have set up the Victorian house again.

Hucka D.:

Again, yes. I lived in a room underneath, once more. On the south side. I was very small. You have seen me in this form before, or Baker Blinker did.

bb:

To back up, you said you were Ruby. Is this the same as the sim Rubi? Or the front of the Temple of TILE — the map with Ruby on it as well as Silver.

Hucka D.:

I can say yes to that. You have sacrificed that temple now, just as of tonight. As is written.

bb:

And as I’m checking, it looks like you turned black when you crawled into the eyeball avatar at Rodeo. You emerged like this… like out of a cocoon?

Hucka D.:

I went to Hidalgo, true enough. I went into Charles Nelson Blinkerton.

bb:

The avant-guard artist who recently died in New Mexico… who lived in Lordsburg much of his mature life. Who was friends with Pollock and perhaps other abstract expressionists.

Hucka D.:

He went beyond Pollock[, though].

bb (reading further):

This transformation in the northeast corner of Rodeo allowed the door to the future to swing open for you. You had the power to become our spiritual guide. Our family’s guide.

Hucka D.:

I only had a headstart on the future but, yeah, it was enough to become a sort of guide that I am.

bb:

HBA made several comments to that post. We talked about Lovecraft and the Cthulu mythos. Then that came up again in some back and forth comments regarding the Big Island mythology of Comet Archipelago. We must now talk of Dr. Blood. I mean, only if you wish.

*****

bb:

Strange that William Harvey has come up recently in this blog. The discoverer of blood circulation.

Hucka D.:

William Harvey minded his p’s and q’s more effectively than today.

bb:

Is this William Harvey of Mythos the same as Dr. Blood?

Hucka D.:

We can say yes to that. Perhaps an emphatic yes but I’m not sure still.

bb:

Are chromagraphs involved, then? Or Glop People?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Glop people. Jeogeot becomes Wazob becomes Jeogeot…

bb:

Seeping through, then. One applied on top of the other and visa versa, I guess.

Hucka D.:

This is a bleedthrough.

bb:

Dr. Blood, then?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Seepage.

bb:

I must look over my notes, then, about this William Harvey of Mythos. Not the Earth Harvey but connected there as well.

Hucka D.:

You do that.

*****

* Here Hucka D. is referring to Jeogeot and Maebaleia.
** Further thoughts: The Glop People, who, after all, were said to come from Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, may be the same as what are called The Ancients in this blog, and, in particular, Mr. Low, who controlled Baker Bloch when he first surfaced.

Hucka D.:

The Glop People landed in the center of Big Sink at The Bakers’ 1024 parcel and shared with them the knowledge of the chromagraphic language through Uniko, Da. This was agreed upon with Dr. Blood, or your William Harvey, let’s say. Goodnight.

bb:

Goodnight Hucka D., and thanks.


Thoughts…

Still a little confused what pictures should go in which gallery. Obviously the 10×10 is in the cube version of the Edwardston Station Gallery. And I think I basically have the right pictures in the new “Down The Rabbit Hole” exhibit that’s within this cube now — well, mostly (within the cube, I mean, since the tube itself and the couple of pictures inside are just outside).This leaves Sunklands Central and the new Big E Gallery. I’ve now hung Edna’s Ruins in the Woods photos as well as some of her newer Ozland shots in the Big E Gallery, in the various chambers outside the E itself. The pictures that were exhibited in the Something To Chro About version of the Big E exhibit (“e, a letter of stories”) are still present. One of the problems is that the bottom floor of pictures are duplicating those in the lowest floor of the Sunklands Central house. Do I need duplicates?

Projects:

The old Big E Gallery in Aotearoa is no more, the remainder having been torn down yesterday.

Big E Gallery in Aotearoa being carefully deleted in sections.
What I needed to make sure of is that all the various exhibits within were “taken care of”. A new Sunklands story is developing…

*****

5:56:

Actually I had an idea. Instead of a type of information center I could recreate what the Victorian house looked like on Big Island in the Comet Archipelago (!) Yes, I think this is the road I’ll take. So I’ll put the table with the pie on it, the picture of the turte-cat, the Pieland picture (SL version), the Chesaw and Saw-chee portraits, and some of the other stuff.


Big Sink, Center

In hiking around the new neighborhood, waltzed into a mall area in the northwest corner of Kakapo (sim immediately east of Pudding Hill) to find a small gallery run by the avatar who created the sculpture rotating just across the street from my Victorian house: sambroxton String, or, here, just Sam Broxton. Now as I’m checking today, I’m seeing that Sam Broxton is a RL name for this virtual artist:

http://www.ultramodernart.co.uk/

Now I haven’t mentioned it before in this blog I don’t think, but the Broxton sculpture across the road from me is on land owned by Debi Dastardly, who also created a large farm just up the hill. In checking, it looks like Debi owns maybe 1/2 of the sim of Busby; Broxton’s sculpture lies near the northeast corner of this sim.

There’s also a bit more forest on the slopes of north Busby, also owned by Ms. Dastardly. Some abandoned structures of Craggen Maw are to the right here.

View of Broxton sculpture and Sunklands Central, once again. I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this either, but the small pine forest in front of my house is actually in yet another sim, Brouwer (remembering that my Victorian house is located close to the meeting of 4 sims: Brouwer, Pudding Hill, Craggen Maw, and Busby), and owned by Mjolnir Uriza, proprietor of the Hammer of the Gods jewelry store also in Brouwer.

“Strange that I haven’t noticed this cigar shaped amorphous object right in front of my house before,” Baker Bloch thinks. Well, I think this through Baker Bloch. I mean, I must have looked past it a dozen times. Also owned by Ms. Uriza. Hidden meaning?

In accidentally falling out of the Edwardston Station Gallery due to lag one night, I landed on the ground closer to the east edge of my sim, and decided to investigate some buildings over in that direction that I hadn’t taken a close look at before. Well, one turned out to be a new, multi-story gallery by none other than Sambroxton String, and in the same sim as my galleries (!) I was quite excited by this, and decided to take a couple more pictures of his art within. It’s not quite open yet, and I suppose this is the reason he’s banning access to the structure.

The top of Broxton’s Pudding Hill gallery-in-progress in relation to my 2 Pudding Hill skybox galleries; a duplicate of his sculpture just in front of my Sunklands Central Victorian house is positioned exactly between the two.


*Up*dates: Galleries, Etc.

Think I’ve basically finished the Sunklands Central project I’ve been trying to wrap my brain around. Here’s the deal: essentially I’ve re-created the Victorian house setting on Big Island in the Comet Archipelago, starting with the portrait hangings of both Lord Chancellor Chesaw (in the most prominent place in the house) and his ne’er-do-well twin brother Chancellor Lord Saw-che (in the least prominent place), the two rivals in the ultra-important, second game of Trivia Ratsuit ever played — and last to date as well — that supposedly jump started the creation of virtual reality in our time.

But let’s start outside with a sign marking the historic site within Sunklands.

This is the new twist: the Victorian house was actually *flown* to this new location from Big Island, perhaps via a massive amount of balloons but perhaps not. But the parallel with the inspirational movie Up is implicit still, if reversed. I’ll just copy the contents of the notecard that accompanies the Sunklands historic sign or marker:

The Disney-Pixar movie Up kind of had it backwards. The archetypal HOME was actually moved from what others might see as a paradisiacal setting to a empty plot surrounded on 3 sides by urban megaprims.

Sunklands Central is a relic from a past time paradise, planted in the heart of Big Sink as a seed. The past is tropical Big Island in Azure Islands’ Comet Archipelago. The present is largely barren but full-of-potential Big Sink in Sunklands on the Jeogeot continent. The future is…

Now I may tweak that notecard some more, but the core idea seems pretty solid. The Victorian house from Up pictured in the sign is in a rather remarkably similar setting just before its ascent into the sky through the aforementioned massive number of balloons (Karl, the surviving family member, use to sell balloons for a living… just go along with it). Like the similar sized Victorian house in Sunklands, it too is surrounded by urban “megaprims”, not even having trees on one side for relief. Here’s a relative, overhead shot of Sunklands Central.

I couldn’t find the exact scene from the Up movie that would best compare with the above shot, but viewers of the already famous 2009 movie probably know the one I’m talking about, and you still get the basic idea from the still I did find online.

Leaving that queer idea alone for a time, let’s move inside the house now. Chesaw’s directly front and center as we walk in the main door. That’s Max the cat-turtle to the right, and a table with one of Chesaw’s famous pies on it to the left, along with some maps of Big Island.

Upstairs are more detailed scenes from Big Island, including Baker Bloch sitting beside what I’m now calling the Pie Hole of Big Island, with a Tron video arcade positioned on top of the ancient passage as a sign of warning — so the story goes. Just for the record, Chancellor Lord Saw-che’s portrait is around the corner of the wall in front of the hobo bed, in a least prominent position in the house as I said, and hung askew as well.

Baker in his viewing chair atop the house. He most definitely feels centered here, perhaps more than ever before, anywhere, in Second Life. I can’t see giving up this particular parcel — certainly could be wrong, though.

Then moving to other updates, I think the “Down The Rabbit Hole” exhibit within the Edwardston Station Gallery cube might be essentially finished as well. Each picture now contains accompanying text that you can access by mousing over it. I now have some new ideas about the Rabbit Hole and Jeogeot-Maebaleia relationship concerning The Bill. I’ve also renamed Peter of Sunklands “Peter The Good” (not Great, just Good… just good enough).

And I believe the new, pared down Big E Gallery is sort of finished, or at least I’ve almost run out of prims to work with for now. Baker below sits in front of two of Edna’s photographs from her Ruins in the Woods exhibit, formerly housed in the Gallery at the Temple of TILE. There’s also her Ozland pictures from same inside the Big E Gallery now.

Lastly I opened a small gallery or shop in Pine Tree Village (originally called X-ville in this blog) called “Where Are We On That?” and offering the 4 collages featured in the archived exhibit from last year, along with several other related SL photographs and a link to the just completed web site.
