Baker Blinker Blog Book IV: Jeogeot II 04c (Jan/Feb 2010 03 of 03)


We must keep chattering, part 4 of 6 of 8…

“Hucka D., as it says in the title, we must keep chattering.”

Hucka D:

Why don’t you refresh your coffee first. I’ll wait. I have time. I not bee busy.

*****

bb:

I think that, understandably, you want us to talk about Peter tonight.

Hucka D.:

Peter has been/is/will be here in Sunklands with you… us. He is the cross of the 10×10. He is Mountain and Mole Hill at once.

bb:

I’m going to have to take a closer look at the related collages again, Hucka D. I don’t think any will be in the new showing. Let’s see, they would be collages 10-11, 35-36, 60-61, and 85-86. Nope, none in the exhibit-to-be.

Hucka D.:

The most important (contact) is the Oblong series. And Greenup. These are the two cities of the 7 cities and 1 county of the series that are outside the county itself (Jasper). They are apart, separate. The contact with Peter comes at the same place in each — right in the middle. For Yale it comes in the middle as well, but Yale is half as long as either Greenup or Oblong. For Wheeler it comes in the middle also, but same situation — Wheeler is the same length as Yale and thus 1/2 that of Greenup and Oblong. What is contacted? Peter, we know. But what or who is Peter? We know he is Seathwaite Fell, that’s certain enough. When you first contacted him in Greenup, you did not know this, though. You knew that a mountain apart from the small Greenup valley, somewhere to the southwest and covered with a giant diamond(s), was the involved. Peter was inside. Inside was Peter.

bb:

A channeler, then. Like Helen Keller. Perhaps like our Sapphire, then. Alabama. Ummagumma.

Hucka D.:

Those are my lines.

bb:

Sorry. (pause) Peter is Irwin.

Hucka D.:

The Bill. Bill, The.

bb:

The title “One Pink” remains extremely interesting. Bleedthrough — future. Big Sink.

Hucka D.:

Why is the boy staring through the eyeball?

bb:

Irwin? I suppose that he gains sight, somehow, in the transition from Greenup 10 to Greenup 11.

Hucka D.:

Oleanistantinople.

bb:

(pause) Is that the same as Constantinople, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Is and isn’t. (pause)

bb:

The dead fish in Greenup 11 is Lennie. Not Lennie of Of Mice and Men but perhaps that Lennie as well.

Hucka D.:

No, it’s suppose to be more Lennie Bias, dead in 1986 of a drug overdose. Bird looses his wings in the process. Oleanistantinople.

bb:

This is also Mythos code for the loss of the dark or mother side of the county (Burke), and the winging it of the light father side toward heaven, perhaps like a dove.
Hucka D.:

The mother dies, not the father, because the mother is (still) on Earth. Oleanistantinople.

bb:

Seeing it from the other direction, then. Like an e and a schwa.

Hucka D.:

Right. Death is like life and life is like death. Oleanistantinople.

bb:

Hmmm, you like that word tonight, Hucka D.

Hucka D. (rapidly):

What? Oleanistantinople? Are you talking about the word Oleanistantinople? Is that what you are referring to? Oleanistantinople? Is it? Oleanistantinople, I mean?

bb (somewhat irritated):

Yes, Hucka D. That would be it. (then he smiles)

Hucka D.:

Moving rapidly to Oblong and 85-86 — are you there yet? — we have a clearer picture of Seathwaite Fell and Peter. It is here you realize that the cross is present. Put a picture up here.

bb:

OK.

INSERT PICTURE.

Hucka D.:

In a way, this is TILE, then, baker b.

bb:

Yes, I see. Green opposes red (Oblong and Greenup) and yellow opposite violet (Yale and Wheeler). East and west, and north and south. Highest value color and lowest. Then the most evenly valued colors. TILE.

Hucka D.:

But anyway then you know that you are contacting Seathwaite Fell, the mountain in England. The source of pencils not diamonds, but diamonds nonetheless. Olean… OK, I’ll stop saying it.

bb:

Thank you.

Hucka D. (continuing):

You are at a peak: Oblong 10 and then Oblong 11. In Oblong 10 Monkey stares at grave which is the 2001 monolith and the grave of St. Burl of Ives and in Oblong 11, Monkey becomes Man (Isle of) and Oblong Box, a coffin, full of the letters of the word OBLONG itself — *not* Oleanistantinople — .

bb: (playfully reprimanding):

Hucka D… you promised!

Hucka D.:

Right, but like I said, *not* that word but OBLONG instead. O-B-L-O-N-G. The letters are colored all colors, almost, except for the color green. Seems to stand for Ireland in the cemetery picture of Oblong 11, don’t you think? Coffin?

bb:

May-be. That’s kind of TILE waterfall in that Oblong 02 collage, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

You must polish up Floydadada and allow others to read (it).

bb:

Even part 4?

Hucka D.:

We better end. You have your homework.

bb:

Thanks, Hucka D., as usual.

Hucka D.:

You’re very welcome. Thank you.


We must keep chattering, part 3 of 6 of 9…

“Hucka D…”

Hucka D.:

As the title says… (pause)

bb:

Good evening to you, Hucka D. We have new eyes.

Hucka D.:

Eyes, ears, speech. 3-n-1. Foreign One.

bb:

Do you wish, then, to talk about “One Pink”?

Hucka D.:

Eyes open. Irwin. Peeks through. Two lips. Ear to hear. Wassup.

bb (joking):

Not much.

Hucka D.:

Greenup… let’s talk[, then].

bb:

Switching the subject just a bit, can you tell me about the relationship between England’s Lake District and the Lake District of Maebaleia?

Hucka D.:

I want to say something… but I shouldn’t.

bb:

You were going to say something rude. Weren’t you?

Hucka D. (denying):

No. (shaking head) No.

bb:

Where’s your pollen ball that use to be on your hand? (laughs)

Hucka D. (still shaking head, laughing as well):

Don’t start with me.

bb (after a pause):

So, Hucka D. I’m just going to take a look through the Greenup series quickly… hold on. First off, what is Billville?

Hucka D.:

Oh, you know.

bb:

I know that it’s suppose to represent the central mound of Greenup 02. The one with the teeny Brazil flag on top. The one the giant purple martin is lasering, shall we say, with his yellow ray.

Hucka D. (repeating):

Ray.

bb:

I think it is a moment of conception. A meeting of male, solar energy with female lunar energy, like sunrays in a cool bowl or container.

Hucka D.:

Oleanistantinople.

bb:

Hucka D., I wish you wouldn’t start with that. I’m having enough problems with the *cat* tonight.

Hucka D.:

Casey? Oh he’s a beauty doll.

bb:

It’s actually a she, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

You call him… her… a beauty boy all the time.

bb:

Yeah, it’s just a little joke. Gender confusion. Like Baker Blinker and Baker Bloch.

Hucka D.:

Ooooh. Am I a woman to you, then, baker b.?

bb:

No. Let’s get back to the subject. No more of the “O” word, though. OK?

Hucka D. (obliging):

Alright.

bb:

Billville, seemingly, is conceived in Greenup 02. The darkness in Greenup 03 is the darkness of the womb, as perceived by the growing embryo. Then dawn arrives in Greenup 04. The birth is about to start. In Greenup 05 we are there. Back in the sun of the father, but in the body of the mother.

Hucka D.:

Couldn’t have said it better myself. A-O-K.

bb:

Martin is on the mound holding the Brazil flag. Proudly, it seems. The mound, a new addition to the collage series so far, is from Oklahoma, Esau Junction to be precise. Oh wait, actually it’s the same mound as in Greenup 01. No… wait…

Hucka D.:

Why don’t you just put a picture of the original photos. Can you find them still?

bb:

Unsure, Hucka D. Hold on…

*****

“I’m not sure it’s still on the web. Maybe not.”

Hucka D.:

Then you have a unique work, then. Good you stole. (smiles)

bb:

Greenup 05 and Greenup 06 make the first animation in the 10×10. (Simpson’s) Martin turns into (George) Martin. Beatles move from color back to black and white. Moving back in time, then. We follow the yellow submarine back in time, back to the hole in the wall. Tunnel.

Hucka D.:

It says Millboro. What the heck is that? (snickers)

bb:

That’s the past, I suppose. And the future.

Hucka D. (again, innocently):

What are those three lights in the tunnel. Look out! Here comes trainie.

bb:

I never really thought of that, Hucka D. But it’s three lights. It’s suppose to be diamonds, like Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. And we have the Sgt. Pepper album in jigsaw form before the old Beatles. A jigsaw piece mirrors the jigsaw nature of the creek in the Greenup valley.

Hucka D.:

Side for you[, then] and side for me?

bb:

Maybe, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

What is the significance of Esau Junction in these pictures, baker b.? Why is it inserted in the heart of this quaint Greenup valley. Replacing that mound in Greenup 02, it seems.

bb:

Yes, the mound again. Bill’s Mound. Billville.

Hucka D.:

So in Greenup 07, we’re seeing through the tunnel toward the approaching yellow submarine, heading down the Greenup Gill toward us. But it has turned into a boat, the same one as in Greenup 04. Do you need to rest your fingers?

bb:

No… tis OK. Cat’s asleep finally.

Hucka D.:

So sweet.

bb:

Yes. In looking at it, the source of the 3 lights in Greenup 06 becomes obvious as we stare from the other direction. It is diamonds for sure, glints of a stack of them. And the glints out of line just like the same in Greenup 06. Obviously the same.

Hucka D.:

Good work. But really, let’s see… aren’t they the United States?

bb:

US… yes. America. Or Amereca.

Hucka D.:

Meramec Caverns, then. And then you exit the same toward the end. Greenup 19, as I’m checking. That’s the same mound through the mouth of the tunnel in both. And there’s the stack of books with the apple on top again. Martin’s apple and books. (pause) This is coming and going. From the same place, the same mound.

bb:

Yes, obviously. It was planned that way, though. Not accident or synchronicity.

Hucka D.:

You were asking about Billville earlier. The Bill.

bb:

We’ve talked a number of times now about Lemon, which seems to be the same as Lennon of the Beatles…

Hucka D. (interrupting):

No… variant.

bb:

Right, variant. So it’s Lemon from The Beetles instead of Lennon from The Beatles. But in the blog he’s credited for bringing The Bill to Sunklands, or allowing them to enter Sunklands. Lennon is the largest of the China dolls of Greenup 05.

Hucka D.:

The Bill came and organized things a bit better. Peter was buried in his mound, but then, several days later, he was back and in Aotearoa. Petemond to Pietmond to Piedmont. He erased memories of his burial in Otaki Gorge. Instead he pointed to the cemetery on the east end of the newer Petemond or — you know. The pool with the fallen tombstone in it. Blue Pool. Pool of The Dead it was called. Billalex… Gillalex. Bill’s Gill. Stonethrow.

*****

“I think Greenup 06 depicts a Beatles (Beetles?) joined together again. Separate yet joined here, as in a jigsaw puzzle. Greenup 05, in Greenup 05, the puzzle is pulled apart and the pieces separated. China dolls equal jigsaw puzzle pieces. 4 in each case.”

Hucka D.:

We are heading back in time (from Greenup 05 to Greenup 06), true enough.

bb:

From color back to black and white. Like The Beatles on Ed Sullivan. Before the colors of Sgt. Pepper. Like old TV shows, then.

Hucka D.:

Exactly like that.

bb:

Then, to continue, in Greenup 08 we have a type of birth. The 3 diamond glints become 3 referees, all taking turns shaking hands with Coach K. K. A much smaller martin bird looks on, through a looking glass, with a glinty diamond-like eye himself or herself. This appears to be a lunar martin, the counterpart to the (much larger) solar martin in Greenup 02. The eye is also the star Vega, also present in Greenup 03. The purple martin here seems to be a representation of purple or black-ish night, Hucka D., and its stars. All in one.

But then, on the other side of the (Greenup) valley, seemingly, the jigsaw puzzle pieces representing the 4 Beatles have moved into the future, the White Album, Abbey Road, and beyond, into the solo years for the group’s members. Past 1970 then… almost here but not quite. And there is The Diamonds again, in the shape of a mountaintop restaurant this time. Wheeler 04 is set very near the same location (in Missouri).

Hucka D.:

Therein lies the mysteries. The Diamonds. Cars parked and avatars within. Ole…

bb (quickly interrupting):

We better say goodnight, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Oh… OK. Goodnight baker b. Thanks.

bb:

Thank you.

Hucka D.:

See you in the booth.

bb:

Right. We’ll try again perhaps tomorrow night.

Hucka D.:

Thanks again.

We Must Keep Chattering, Part 2 Of 6 Of 10

“So we ended with Greenup 09, Hucka D. Moving into Greenup 10 again, like we did in We Must Keep Chattering, Part 4 of 6 of 8. I think. Hucka D.?”

*****

Seems like Hucka D. may not want to talk with us tonight. I’ll just give some news then while we wait. Top news story for the Bakers today: I’m renting in Aotearoa again, but only a 1536. But it’s the east end of my old property. I’m quite excited! The rental is just reserved right now until my landlord can put a rental box on it (he’s a busy man). I think I’m going to recreate Peter’s false/true grave on it… after all, this is the same part of the land that had the small cemetery w/ one of the tombstones fallen into a blue pool (Blue Pool, aka Pool of the Dead) before. Probably put some kind of house up as well. I also have the option of actually just moving the Edwardston Station Gallery back to Aotearoa, but I probably won’t do this. I see the ESG staying in Pudding Hill now, at the center of Big Sink. Whatever goes here will be different — I think. Maybe a new type of Temple of TILE.

Hucka D.:

I had to take care of the babies before I left. Hi baker b.

bb:

Didn’t know you had kids, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Baby doves. 2 of ’em. Adorable.

bb:

Alright. You’ll have to fill me in on that sometime.

Hucka D.:

You actually saw them. On the lip of Big Sink. They escaped and came to you. They’ve heard so much about our late night conversations. They wanted to see you in person.

bb (taking Hucka D.’s crazy tangent in stride, as usual):

Yes, I remember them.

Hucka D.:

They were disappointed that you didn’t put their picture you took of them in the blog, in those new posts. That’s why they were crying, actually, and why I was late. I was comforting.

bb:

Well, why don’t I just find the picture now and insert it into *this* post. I think it’s still in the trashcan… haven’t totally got rid of it yet.

Hucka D.:

Could you? It would make them so happy, I’m sure.

bb:

What are their names, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Turtle and Dove. Wait, Florence and Alabama. Yes, that’s it.

bb:

Nice. You sure they’re not a turtle and a dove? Never mind…

Hucka D.:

They said hello but you were distant to them.

bb:

You mean the avatars I was just talking to?

Hucka D.:

That was them. They tried again in human form. That’s why they could fly so well. They weren’t newbies. At all. That’s why they said they always have fun building. Because they’ve done it a lot.

bb:

They did seem really enthusiastic. Called me sir, then. Do I look like I need to be addressed as “sir”?

Hucka D.:

They saw how old you were — 2 years old is old to some. Happy rez-day, by the by!

bb:

Thank you Hucka D. It’s around today. (pause) Hold on…

bb:

Alrighty, Hucka D. There’s your 2 little doves in the blog now. Turtle and Dove did you say?

Hucka D.:

Yes. They’re both doves, though. Not Florence and Alabama. But maybe both, like your John and Fred and Chip and Raphael.

bb:

Interesting. So Hucka D., do you want to continue with Greenup 09 and Greenup 10 tonight?

Hucka D.:

Um, I’m a bit wore out attending to Turtle and Dove. They were so so disappointed. And so little and new.

bb:

They look like pretty big doves in that picture, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Oh, they were just trying to impress you by stretching out their shape. If you would have looked closely, you would have seen the textures were blurred, because they are actually so small. Probably no more than 128×128 still.

bb:

Thanks once again for that (laughs a bit).

bb:

This is the main thing I was inspecting in the area tonight, just before logging on here. This was about the time those two seeming newbies im-ed me from a distance and said they were my neighbors.

Hucka D.:

They are your neighbors. You should be nice to them.

bb:

I was nice to them.

Hucka D.:

They’re my babies after all.

bb:

Maybe we should call it a night, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

I want you, *sir,* to think about my babies, Turtle and Dove. 2 turtles and 2 doves in one. Centerville. Happy Together.

bb:

2 “turtle doves”, then. (smiles)

Hucka D.:

We could talk about St. Nick more?

bb:

St. Nick of Barkley?

Hucka D.:

You must promote Sunklands far and wide. Recruit Sunklanders but from afar and with a wide berth. You have a new friend. The shoe on the other foot did not drop, and it won’t. You are entering a circle of art… artists. This is an extension of entering the (center of the) circle of Big Sink. 10×10 is the center. And at the center of the 10×10 is Peter.

bb:

Peter-as-Seathwaite Fell.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

The Peter in Greenup 10 and Greenup 11.

Hucka D.:

Right. 4 times in the progression of the cyclical 10×10 did he appear, most obviously in the Oblong series. Greenup and Oblong are interlocked.

bb:

Excuse me, Hucka D., but I’m looking at SLurl map. It looks like those doves — your doves — would be almost on the exact same latitude as the 2 turtles that use to be in that pen in the northwest corner of Pudding Hill — since deleted.

Hucka D. (nonchalantly):

They are the same, yes. 2 turtles and 2 doves. Turtle and Dove. That was them as well.

bb:

The 2 turtles, you mean.

Hucka D.:

Precisely. Centerville. Center of Kansas City Life. The “K.C.” in the sim above them was part of that art project also.

bb:

I’m going back and take a look at those doves again[, then]. Hold on!…

*****

So’s as best I can determine, the 2 doves Hucka D. claims are his baby pets and the 2 turtles formerly found in Pudding Hill are on basically the same latitude. Below I’m standing right next to the 2 doves (Mavora, 18, 240, 69) on the left, and the turtles would have been at approximately the red dot on the right (Pudding Hill, 87, 237, 69). The middle number indicates the “latitude” within the sim — 237 compared with 240, then.

Then just for fun I teleported over to the *exact* same coordinate point (latitude *and* longitude) within Mavora that the turtles would have been in Pudding Hill. Turns out its right below the edge of this house on now abandoned land.

Since it was abandoned I didn’t deem it unethical to take an interior shot. That’s the city of Frankfort, Germany through the window, or a picture thereof.

I think there’s no doubt the 2 turtles and 2 doves are related now. Don’t know the exact meaning yet, but obviously it has something to do with Zappa’s Centerville and the 2 Turtles within that as well. The symbolic connection comes through the “12 Days of Christmas” song repeatedly mentioning “two turtle doves”. And since the 2 pairs of animals lie on either side of St. Nick (of Barkley)’s Big Sink, another Christmas link comes in play through that. Certainly more to mull over here.


Back In Aotearoa…

… but renting only a 1536 parcel separated from the original 7360 now (its eastern side). Just enough ground for a nice cottage on the ground for viewing into the sink that I love so much, or like a whole whole lot anyway. And then enough prims left over to perhaps create the old Temple of TILE as a skybox (?).

Grave on the grounds beside Fleep’s cottage, the latter a direct carryover from the old property. I suppose the grave would be that of Peter again. Peter the Good. Has it been determined whether it is a true or false grave yet, though?

Two pools now on this smaller parcel instead of the one before. The pool I called Blue Pool or the Pool of the Dead — with the fallen tombstone within — was located at the same spot as the lower of the 2 new pools, and about the same size. No fish within either yet.

Certainly, if so, my guess is that Peter would have loved the view toward the giant rabbit heads, just across the highway now in the Otaki Gorge sim. It all seems like so much fate now — the leaving of Aotearoa, and then the return to this smaller, more manageable parcel. Just to note: I’m *certainly* keeping the 2 1024s in Pudding Hill. Don’t think I can give those up now. The 2048 in Timescape? Not sure about that yet. Same case for the 1024 in Yd Island, although I believe that’s the one which will go first, if anything does in the near future.

Inside the cottage now, a very familiar space. Grave with blue rose just outside.

And a familiar view down into the heart of the Aotearoa Sink, if from a different angle than previously. I think I might like it just as much!


Loose Thoughts…

Should be able to catch up w/ Blackmount Sink post text generation tomorrow. Now pretty established in Aotearoa. I believe this might be the first time I’ve lived in one location over 4 months, about 4 1/2 months now. Yes, I would think it has to be closing in on a record. The 4 main places I’ve lived in SL are Gliese (Azure Islands), Rubi (Heterocera), Noru (Jeogeot) and Aotearoa (Jeogeot, Sunklands), all residencies of about 4 months duration except, as I said, for Aotearoa now. But I live on a much smaller parcel in Aotearoa than before — 1536 sq. meters as opposed to 7580. Just a minute ago, moved “SID’s Place” from Villeneuve to Aotearoa. That’s the skybox I found on Yd Island where I still plan to hold the new SID’s 1st Oz interview. Hucka D. and I will be involved. Must gear up for that soon.

I think I want to reexamine Second Sink next a bit more, just to balance everything out. Check this out (below): amazing juxtaposition of the rabbit heads and Peter’s Mound (his grave), all in Otaki Gorge and the only things clearly visible in that sim (minus the highway) from my new south facing porch in Aotearoa, using my regular draw distance of 96 meters. Consider: this was the same porch from which you could see the *Rabbit Head* of Ratzenberger while SID’s Place still existed in Villeneuve (it was deleted there about 20 minutes ago), but you had to use a longer draw.

View looking west from the same porch, toward the east lip of Big Sink in Moa.

I have a feeling Hucka D. doesn’t want to talk more about the Greenup series tonight, but could be wrong. Don’t think he’s around yet. I haven’t mentioned in this blog about my upcoming show in the new Ahren Art Gallery, owned by Linnea Ahren. Fabulous person! I’ve really enjoyed working with her now almost, I suppose, about 2 weeks so far. She’s kind of new in the gallery business, and has never put on an exhibit. But she’s really doing her research, and she’s inspiring me to take a good look at the way I present my collages, and reexamine some procedures and decisions. It’s my first exhibit as well.

I’ll have more to say about all that soon enough. Opening will be March 2. I also really excited by the fact that it’s a type of charity event for the Arcadia Asylum Recovery Group, with 1/2 the proceeds from the exhibit (which will run 1 month, approx.) going to this group.

OK, I guess it’s perhaps time for Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

You now make your home in *East* Peterborough, for that is the actual name of the town. Not Pietmond or Piedmont or Peter’s Mound.

bb:

I think it would still be Pietmond, Hucka D. I believe we already decided that.

Hucka D.:

Not any more. Not after the break of small east with big west, like your Edwardboro and East Edwardboro. You have broken the magic of Aotearoa cleanly in 2. You must think of why that had to happen.

bb:

I suppose a shift to rl is mostly involved, Hucka D. Hiking season will be here in 2 or 3 weeks.

Hucka D.:

You give up virtual Yd Island to focus on the *real* Yd Island — the meadow in Herman Park. You must read over the Quadrobeav Mythology again. Toy avatars — what’s that all about. Frank and Herman, Einstein! (quoting the name of one of my collages).

bb:

Where’s Sapphire these days, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Oh, she’s around. St. Nick of Barkley as well. You just needed a balance. Peterborough will give you that.

bb:

Balance to Big Sink.

Hucka D.:

Yes, precisely. You cannot and must not become the new Brainard. Yd Island Macro-Hole is sealed up and that’s all A-O-K now. Your presence is no longer needed (on Yd Island). You are totally sink boy now.

bb:

Yes, I suppose so, Hucka D. Throw in the Chasm Deep lookout as well. I kind of like it there; not sure I want to give that one up.

Hucka D.:

You don’t have to. Of course. It’s always a situation of balances and relationships. Just like with the sinks themselves, especially in the past and pre-Linden days, of course. Before the advance of the Great Mundane.

bb:

The sinks seem pretty alive to me, Hucka D. Remarkable stories each and every one of them is telling!

Hucka D.:

Yes, but it’s you that’s coloring the story book. You have the magic wand that brings back the past. To a degree, of course; it can’t come all the way back. It’s all a balance. You must think about St. Nick of Barkley. I think he wants to publish what you thought was your own “Notebook I.” Interesting, eh?

bb:

Yes, if it happens.

Hucka D.:

He wants to write a history of Mythos, from a Wazob viewpoint of course. You haven’t thought about Dr. Blood in a while, baker b.

bb:

Hucka D., next time I’m in Mythopolis I think I’ll go over to the old Sharon location and take some pictures. Hike around there a bit again, before the poison (ivy) comes out. Maybe even this weekend — nah, better wait till I’m actually down there with mom.

Hucka D.:

Right. Jeogeot and Mythos have melded. There’s also Wilma.

bb:

That’s kind of mom in a way.

Hucka D.:

She has been freed — temporarily. She still lives in the house of Ruuster. Black and white, dark and light. Yin and yang. Eonground.

bb:

You mean Eunhaeng.

Hucka D.:

And Einsky. Eonground and Einsky.

bb:

Wilma still taking to that talking rooster in the side garden, Hucka D.? Is that Ruuster?

Hucka D.:

The focus has shifted to St. Nick of Barkley, and what he would write about Mythos and, yes, also Jeogeot. Jeogeot and Wazob. He is in charge of diverting the toy avatars from SL as well. He helped shape the decision that Mythos would not be made up of ensouled avatars.

bb:

It could have been the Be All End All, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

In ways it was… is. You never moved to Blue Mountain, you never… well, it goes on.

bb:

I would have eventually found Jeogeot anyway.

Hucka D.:

Yes, and made the link (with Wazob). Sunk into Sunklands. All that was inevitable in this life.

bb:

It’s just how I want to take it further now.

Hucka D.:

Yes. I would recommend crawling into the skin and bones of St. Nick of Barkley. Many questions there. Why would he write a history of Wazob? Denunciation of course! He would also examine the chromagraphic language in his book. Part II, or so. Definition of the limits of the Mythos sphere. Why the Bruce and Cline expedition sealed up the pole, or poles of that planet — made it spherical. Relationship, of course, of Mythos and Rion, the source or origin planetary system. Why were the toys diverted, and why those particular toys (Mossmen and Mmmmmm’s)? Glop people — are they the same as these Ancients, perhaps from the Moon and Pluto at once?

bb:

Hucka D., can I ask some questions about particular events in Mythos history?

Hucka D.:

A couple for tonight. Then we must end.

bb:

St. Nick of Barkley is going to write about Vortextra — Mythos’ Vortextra, I mean.

Hucka D.:

That’s how he got the name of the (Big Sink) hole (smiles).

bb:

It has to be a rat hole in a manner of speaking.

Hucka D.:

You must look at St. Nick’s bias or prejudice about writing on Mythos and Wazob in particular. He wants to skew historical facts, because he understands that’s how people like him can shape history. Actually mold history, like clay or putty.

bb:

He’s going to say Sharon had everything it needed, without Wazob involved. There was no need for the merger.

Hucka D.:

He’s going to make a stronger link between Sharon and the Glop People, which may be the same as the Ancients from Moon/Pluto, yes. Ensouled avatars.

bb:

Like you yourself, then.

Hucka D.:

Somewhat.

bb:

I’m going to look at Notebook I again, then, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Right. What I would suggest. And Floydadada, and Floydada. The grave on your property should be that of Floydada.

bb:

Thank you.

Hucka D.:

You’re welcome.


Loose Thoughts Again…

Blackmount… tomorrow. Catch up.

I’m unsure when the new SID’s 1st Oz related interview will start up again. I know it will happen, though. I’ve named the Aotearoa parcel I just reclaimed (rerented) SID’s Place, and, as I said before, inserted the “place” itself as a skybox. But I’m not sure if I want to start that next, take notes on St. Nick of Barkley’s history of Mythos (from a Sharon-centric perspective), or work more on the theories behind the 10×10 collages, revamping Floydada and perhaps Floydadada in the process.

I’m leaning toward the St. Nick related project, as, also, I know it will take a turn into toy avatars and the Blue Mountain mythos (the second mythos, after Mythopolis’).

Hucka D.:

Ensoulment is a key element. St. Nick of Barkley had strong opinions about this. Mythos, or rather Wazob, decided against the use of avatars in its environment. Sharon, influenced by the remarkable discovery of the glop people from Uranus-Neptune-Pluto, tended toward the opposite, but, as a whole, caved in when uniting with Wazob in the end — being *absorbed* into the collective consciousness that called itself Wazob. You must think of Sharon and Wazob, then, as has been determined. Predetermined.

bb:

What is the relationship between St. Nick of Barkley and St. Ned of Barton, Hucka D.?

Hucka D. (lightly tapping pollen ball hand on chin):

I would think the same as in Sunklands?

bb:

A definite link between Jeogeot and Wazob has been made Hucka D. Sunklands is obviously, in some way, directly linked to Sharon through the timescape.

Hucka D.:

Yes… Timescape.

bb:

We know that Ray the brainard, actually some kind of extraterrestrial seed, decided not to drop down the hole (in the center of Big Sink — plugged, then), and become 1-3-6-10. Become a tree, then. He remained a selfish, egocentric seed. Intelligent but emotionally warped.

Hucka D.:

The (Big) Sink was plugged. Water filled… no, water did not fill. It’s a dry sink. You know the difference, now. A Lake District could not be formed. This is in contrast to Maebaleia, where you have no dry sinks but many lakes. A key lake to study, then, would be Yeot, because it is the smallest lake of Jeogeot and *almost* a dry sink, sort of close anyway. That lake itself is a Go piece, egg-shaped. Egg Hill to Egg Hole.

bb:

St. Nick would know a lot about Second Life itself, then.

Hucka D.:

He allowed Wazob to come to this virtual reality as a separate continent, surrounded by water this time. A fulfillled or more fulfilled planet situation in that way. But, in another way, not as fulfilled.

bb:

I remember Grassy giving a report about Mythos versus Second Life earlier on in this blog, Hucka D. Guess I should look that up.*

Hucka D.:

I can wait.

*****

“Hucka D., what is the relationship, if any, between Wheeler in this blog and St. Nick of Barkley?

Hucka D.:

Different time strata for the most part. Wheeler is the first ruler of the Confederation that wasn’t the ruler of the Confederation. He discovered backwards time. He discovered the tachyon. Wheeler into Wilson, Wilson into Wheeler. Titusville.

bb:

He is from Olive… Sepisexton to be exact. 76-ton, then. Like Philadelphia. Then Tin is involved here as well. Gold from tin.

Hucka D.:

Wheeler was a somewhat different avatar type person in Mythos, or… (pause)

bb:

Baker Bloch and Baker Blinker together, animus and anima, represent Britonia, the capital of the Confederation and also, later on, the whole of Wazob. But they have a pet companion that is the same as Spring Squirrel, originally Swamp Squirrel. This is like Skillet, and BB and BB together are Ozmo.

*****

bb (quoting):

“The Elders of the Mmmmmm’s determined that no toy avatars are from Mythos.” Is this still correct in your opinion, Hucka D.?

(Hucka D. does not answer)

bb:

I think I’m going to have to name that perhaps central rock in Herman Park something, Hucka D. The one on the edge of the meadow, and on TILE Road.

Hucka D.:

I know the one. Meeting place of Mossmen and Mmmmmm’s. Perhaps most centrally important location for toy avatars as a whole, then. Meeting Rock might be good?

bb:

Maybe that was an original name anyway. (pause) Maybe “The Measure”?

Hucka D.:

Gateway between Herman Park and Yd Island, just left by you in Second Lyfe. Might be a good idea. Quadrobeavs also involved.

*****

bb:

Did the toy avatars know about Yd Island? I suppose they would.

Hucka D.:

The (contrast) between the Mossmen and the Mmmmmm’s is very important. A council was held at Meeting Rock. The marble avatars were also discussed or discussed themselves. But they weren’t disgusting (to the Mossmen and Mmmmmm’s). They represent 3rd life or Third Lyfe beyond First and Second, or inside First and Second, like fitted china dolls. The Third is the last.

bb:

Were the marbles from Key Rock and Castle Rock or Castle Ridge?

Hucka D.:

*Yes*. 1 to 12 or 13. Baker’s Dozen.

bb:

What does St. Nick of Barkley have to do with the toy avatars?

Hucka D.:

He was able to contact them in Sharon. Or allow the negotiation for such contact.

bb:

The glop people were *toy makers*? Or created themselves as (plastic) toys?

Hucka D.:

Plastic men and Plastic people, one in all, all in one.

*****

Hucka D.:

It was much later in the Simpsons’ family history. Lisa and Bart remember their father’s adventure in the 3rd dimension that fateful day. How he got back is anyone’s guess; last we saw he was entering a pastry shop after landing in a garbage bin. The Black Hole swallowed him whole, in pieces.

Bart had his memories too of having a 3rd dimension, briefly. Lisa wanted to re-create. She, as a rich woman now, hired a top scientist who made a breakthrough. This was the transition of plastic *man* to plastic *people*. One to many. Saxophone is key.

bb:

Thanks for that. Meeting Rock appears to be named New Sigma, Hucka D. Not sure what Old Sigma would be, then.

Hucka D. (repeating):

Saxophone. Knower of Tui or 2E. Unicode. Uniko. Code. Mythos. Bible. Birds were at the meeting as well. From New Zealand. Atonal from Latona.

bb:

It was contact with an extraterrestrial delegation. Like in Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind.

Hucka D.:

Third again, yes. Close Encounters of the 3rd Dimension.

bb:

Here’s a link to your SID’s 1st Oz, Hucka D. Why is the lemon tree also an apple and an orange tree? 3rd again. Apples and Oranges. It seems to be like First Tree for the Mmmmmm’s. The place their Goodmobile from, maybe Pluto, landed.

bb:

There’s a topic we could discuss in the interview:
1) Arnold Layne
2) See Emily Play
3) Apples & Oranges

The progression of Walt SIDney through 1-2-3.

Hucka D.:

We must end soon, but the yellow bricks of the yellow brick road are also compared to lemon (shaped rocks) in SID.

What do we know *now*. We know that contact was made in Herman Park, perhaps in the Herman meadow on TILE Mtn., perhaps in the valley below in the TILE Creek Valley, which is the same as Yards Creek in the Great Mundane. The Mmmmmm’s preserve the mythology of SL’s Yd Island and the Rabbit Head of Ratzenberger.

Wanderings…

Biking on the Linden protected passage called the “Circuit La Corse” west of Timescape, once more.

Amazing empty scapes on the central, granite “dome” of the continent, where I plan to explore more soon.

Sculpty trees that hadn’t rezzed in yet. Still look pretty neat in this unpotentialized state; Blochs thought it worth a snapshot.

When Baker went over to the Aracadia Asylum library in the Cheomna sim on official business, a familiar looking statue greeted him in the courtyard. It’s the Buford P. Slum creation found in the Rosewood sim of Corsica not 1 or 2 nights before. He should have known it was an AA work with a name like that!

Baker meditates beside the grave with the blue rose at his Aotearoa home (tombstone yet another AA creation) before starting another night of wandering.

Baker had noticed this ground lighting just west of his home before…

… tonight he found the source: an aquarium just beneath the surface left behind by the former owner of the now abandoned land, accompanied by 2 potted plants.

Old service station, now on route 9 several sims north of Aotearoa.

Negotiating a narrow passage.

Wow!! When Baker decided to visit Blackmount once more while in the general vicinity, a giant pyramid with a capping eye had since been created in the Mt. Owen sim just south of Blackmount’s famed Rabbit Hole…

JOKE… the above shot is actually a trick, perspective photograph. The pyramid is there, true enough, but only about a meter high, and hovering about 30 meters off the ground near the center of the Blackmount sim. Baker likes to set up those kind of trick photos now and then, like with the huge waterdrop above the firey lava of Fyre Maven.

Baker was able to trace the origin of this eye-and-pyramid back to this parcel in INSERT, also on the Jeogeot continent and designed as an homage to the late writer-philosophy Robert Anton Wilson.

Aotearoa To Hugh’s Rise, 01

This day, started my adventure, once more, in Aotearoa. Intended goal: somewhere northeast, perhaps Second Sink but perhaps just Northeast itself.

What I believe are bullets manifest sometimes right outside my Aotearoa cottage window when I go home, but quickly disappear, as if an illusion. But the photograph below proves otherwise.

Baker Bloch can also spot, from his comfy chair in the same cottage, the top part of a tree just beyond the west side of his old land. Yes, his land use to extend from the the other side of the cottage here up to that tree: 128 meters. Had to give it up, though — didn’t I?

I love the view into this empty sink. So spiritual and calming.

Tired of vegging out in the cottage, Baker Bloch pulls out his trusty bike and begins to circle around the sink, finding this lamb on the northern side. Lost little lamb… on unclaimed territory. Created and owned by a Miki Gymnast and called a Shaun Teleporter. If the little fella was ever actually a teleporter, it is no more. Just found this article about the creator/owner on the Not Possible In Real Life website, no longer active. 😦 Looks like Miki also helped design a Klein Bottle in 2008. Amazing the number of super talented individuals you find in SL. What her, in contrast, very simple and unassuming little lamb is doing in Aotearoa on abandoned land is anyone’s guess.

Glancing back a couple of times at the Aotearoa Sink while biking generally northeast.


Aotearoa To Hughs Rise, 02

Soccer field in Kiore (Maori word for Polynesian or Pacific Rat) just north of Aotearoa. Unfortunately Baker Bloch contracted a slight knee injury while hiking the high slopes of upper Heterocera last year, and is unable to play organized sports any longer.

Just east of the soccer field, a tiny avatar wheels an empty wheelbarrow around his property, seemingly. My mistake: it’s just an animation, devoid of inhabiting soul (i.e., user). Today, about a week after Baker Bloch’s pictures here, checker-behinder Karoz finds that the elf thingie has disappeared in the meantime. Just making note of this and moving on…

… to a nearby pond of about 50 meters length, one of the few accessible “beauty spots” in the Kiore sim. But still not too pretty; Kiore, dovetailing a bit with its rat derived name, is not the most aesthetically pleasing of sims on the surface.

Witness this… actually, I like the disrepaired school, but it also looks like there could be a number of Kiore rats inside, you know.

In Matamata now, on the edge of the Stonebender shopping village, comprising perhaps over half of the sim.

Baker decides not to enter the village, however, wanting to keep moving northeast beyond known lands such as this (explored a bit last year). He pauses at a landscaped pond area on the property before departing.

In Mooter now, moving northeast once more on a Linden protected route. Unknown lands ahoy!


Hugh’s Rise To Noguri, 01

In Hugh’s Rise now just west of Mooter, heading up and up. New, beautiful land to explore… always exciting.

The whole hillside here is filled with interesting looking places, including the forested area pictured below…

…a neighboring property with kinetic art…

… and, last but not least, as Baker keeps ascending and ascending, the very tip top of the rise, just over the border of Hugh’s Rise in the Yalu sim now. Baker checks the elevation at the top: 155 meters. That rang a bell: didn’t Kou Umaga’s blog mention something about 155 or so being the highest elevation of the continent as a whole. In checking, I find this to be so. How exciting; Baker Bloch’s stumbled across what appears to be, er, Mt. Jeogeot! Now this is a modest summit compared to those 300 meter plus skyscrapers in Heterocera that I attempted to walk all the way across summer before last. But still it’s a pretty big find, given the size of Jeogeot, perhaps the largest of mainland continents. Here is the highest point on the largest continent of Second Life. Sounds impressive, doesn’t it?

Colorful grove of trees found at the top. More of the story on those in a post just above!


Hugh’s Rise To Noguri, 02

Baker decides to press onward this night, eventually running across the familiar sites of Noguri, near his old home in Noru and on his general route to the Korean Channel in those days. Seems so long ago! (but only last spring and summer)

The peaked, magenta building in Noguri discussed at some length in posts of those days. I eventually compare it directly with the similar shape of Wordsworth’s grave picture in the Wheeler 09 collage, one of several Noguri objects resonating with images from that particular collage…

New additional to the valley: a jizo wood statue standing just north of the magenta structure mentioned before, on “Noguri Reclaimed Adfarm” land.

This northern Noguri waterfall, now mostly deleted for some reason, was also seen as having direct resonance with the waterfall pictured in the Wheeler 09 collage. This same waterfall. completed version, is presently set up on my rental property in Timescape.

Park area in Noguri with the now partially deleted waterfall in the background. Very nice. This is the same property that once contained the pond with a parrot perched on a bench next to it — that parrot being yet another Wheeler 09 identified resonance.


Checking In…

“Seventy-six is the number of Frank and Herman Parks collectively. Good you found Seventy-Six Falls in Kentucky. Aaron is nearby. Jacob is nearby the other Seventysix (in Missouri). Aaron is near Settle’s Ford Conservation Area in Missouri (with its 6766 acres). Austin is nearby Aaron there. Lots of “A” towns in the area, baker b. AAAAA…

bb:

I noticed that.

Hucka D. (listing them out):

Adrian, Archie, Altona, along with Aaron and Austin. Altona probably stands for atonal, like Schoenberg. Archive, I mean Archie has come up before. East Lynne.*

*****

“Well, anyway, I know Wheeler is from Sepisexton, which is the same as 76-ton which may be the same as Philadelphia, Hucka D.”

Hucka D.:

1-10 years old he lived there, this Wheeler. Henry Wheeler. (pause)

bb:

AAron, along with Abigail, is the original inhabitant of Wazob overall, according to mythology. AA — Aaron and Abigail. Abigail, like Eve, may have been formed from Aaron, though. The “Aa” beginning the name may be a symbol of the two A names together. Then “b”, the second letter of Abigail, follows “a”, the second letter of Aaron. They lived in the Rye subprovince of Britonia. Wheeler, as a Confederate himself, may have studied this mythology. Did he see through it back to Millaw?

Hucka D.:

Yes. (pause)

bb:

Anything else tonight?

Hucka D.:

Go to Meeting Rock as soon as possible to take pictures. Take BossMoss if possible. It’s a freaky place.

bb:

Thank you.

Jeogeot: Japanese Explorers

I know I’m becoming woefully behind in my text generation for this blog, but I still thought it time to credited 2 newer SL explorer friends for their most excellent research, and some I’ve been using this morning. Because, yes, according to Kou Umaga’s Jeogeot category from his fabulous Rabbit Sky Pirate Adventure blog (don’t know how he finds these things!), a central rise of Jeogeot, peaking at about 158 meters according to both our calculations, represents the highest point of this southernmost Linden continent. This is the peak I just explored last night, and, noticing the elevation, remembered something about Kou mentioning the highest part of Jeogeot being about this height. It’s a very interesting spot, just west of what we’re calling Sunklands in this blog. Specifically, the peak lies in the Yalu sim, near the corner of Yalu, Hugh’s Rise (west), Huntsman (southwest), and Ungseokbong (south). I won’t give the SLurl because it seems to lie on private property, but it’s easy enough to find.

The map at the top of Kou’s Jeogeot category’s 1st page shows the elevation and general spot of the rise (just south of the continent’s likewise central Korean Channel).

For the record, as far as I can tell the highest spot inside Sunklands itself is — I’m going to trust Kou’s map without going inworld to check — about 132 meters. This would be in the Mount Owen sim, I’m guessing, somewhere along the southern border, and between Big Sink and Blackmount Sink. Keep in mind that Jeogeot residents can terraform a range of 4 meters up or down from the original level of their land, often making exact calculations of various “official” elevations difficult or impossible.

Sometime soon, I also want to list the various lowest elevations of the 6 Sunklands sinks, just for the fun of it.*

Kou’s Jeogeot section of his blog also gives SLurls for rezz zones on the continent along major routes and waterways. These don’t interest me as much personally, given that I simply “wear” my basically only means of artificial locomotion (modified Arcadia Asylum bicycle), but to others traveling or attempting to travel around the continent in different, varied ways, they may be super handy to know. He also includes the SLurl of 4 infohubs on the Linden landmass, along with 1 hotel presently. Then following this — presently again — are published 17 individual posts on his own various Jeogeot explorations, mainly using established routes but sometimes straying off more beaten paths as well, as I tend to do most often. For each post, it seems, Kou also provides a map of the trail he beats that particular day or set of days.

My basic complaint about Kou’s blog — no fault of Kou’s, of course (!) — is that it is in written in Japanese, and although you can use the often handy google translator provided in the right hand frame of the blog site to convert the text to any number of languages, the English translation at least is, well, let’s leave it as “sketchy”. Maybe other language translations are better using this tool. But at least I can get the *gist* of what Kou is saying (kind of), and his wonderful pictures and maps speak for themselves aside from any native tongue barriers.

One of my favorite posts from his Jeogeot category is this one, where he travels through the very heart and soul of Sunklands, including Lill Burn Valley, Big Sink, and all the way east to Second Sink even. Nice… very familiar landscapes here.

This post is also especially interesting to me, since Kou makes a rather concerted effort to explore and explain the environs of what I call Nowtown and Zen City, birthplace (seemingly) of our Little Robert Plant Variant who had a quite prominent place in this blog the second part of last year.

Which nicely segues, as it turns out, into a discussion of a second Japanese explorer/blogger I also had the great pleasure to discover and befriend this past year a bit, who I know as simply Ujiyasu. The @YAMATO blog describing her various SL explorations, throw in a good helping of RL related posts as well, is here. As it turns out, Ujiyasu also discusses in some depth about the Nowtown/Zen City locale in one post of her blog, which I made several replies to at the general time of its publication. Ujiyasu, like Kou Umaga, also has a Jeogeot category (in a drop down list this time). As I’m looking at the blog right now, I also notice she has links at the top for major categories discussed therein, which includes Jeogeot as well. Now although her exploring schedule is rather new compared to, say, mine (looks like all Jeogeot related posts date from this year), she’s methodically carving up the continent in these posts into handy, digestible bits for easy reading, as well as talking quite a lot already about other mainland areas such as the ever popular Heterocera and its SLRR (and just to note, since I forgot to mention it above, Kou also has mucho information about other mainland continents as well on his blog).

Of particular interest to me in the Jeogeot ramblings so far is Ujiyasu’s coverage of Chilbo. I’ll just go ahead and give links to the 6 part series (so far):

Jeogeot : Chilbo vol.1
Jeogeot : Chilbo vol.2
Jeogeot : Chilbo vol.3
Jeogeot : Chilbo vol.4
Jeogeot : Chilbo vol.5
Jeogeot : Chilbo vol.6

Admittedly there’s a bit of language barrier to overcome in understanding much of the @YAMATO blog for English readers such as myself, but not quite as much as with Kou’s Rabbit Sky Pirate Adventure. And, once again, many fine pictures are presented to help guide one through the various journeys, as well as supplemental maps.

Hats off to both Kou and Ujiyasu for their hard work and effort!

*****

* I went ahead and did this last night. Surprisingly, it looks like one of the smaller sinks, Lill Burn Valley is actually the deepest at about 30 meters above the bottom of the world (water level usually lies at 20 meters). Big Sink is at about 35 meters elevation, and Aotearoa, Otaki Gorge, and Blackmount are all at around 45 meters. Second Sink or Oolamoo-Drews Sink — hold on, I’ll have go inworld to check (drum roll): looks like about 35 meters or so as well, just like Big Sink. Listed out in order of depth, then:

1. Lill Burn Valley – 30 meters
2. Big Sink – 35 meters
2. Second Sink/Oolamoo-Drews Sink – 35 meters
4. Aotearoa Sink – 45 meters
4. Blackmount Sink – 45 meters
4. Otaki Gorge – 45 meters


We better start, Hucka D….

“As the title says…”

Hucka D.:

So it shall be. You’ve found the old BossMoss place and the Freakies tree. Freaky!

bb:

So it is true.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Insert your picture of the tree here and then the Freakies-who-became-trees-themselves.

bb:

Right-o.

This is the tree in Yalu sim that Hucka D. indicates is parallel to the Freakie’s Tree of 70s cereal fame.

Comparison shot of the 70s cereal Freakies tree below.

Hucka D. seems to be backing my idea up that the Freakies themselves have somehow transformed into trees in my Second Lyfe, and planted themselves beside the main (composite?) Freakies tree.

bb:

How did the Freakies transform themselves into trees, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

They became older than dirt. Insert the next related picture and speak!

The very top of the mountain the Freakies tree and trees are situated on is owned by one Bippie Camel, who you can see below describes his rl self as not only older than dirt, but present before it was created.

Hucka D.:

Continue! I like not speaking!

Just later on, when checking out the Yalu sim on the always helpful Second Life Grid Survey site, observed that their logo was a ball of dirt with some little green plants beginning to sprout out the top.

The ball is in the design of the Taijitu, which we’ve already determined in this blog to stand for, among other things, the direct, spacial relationship between Jeogeot (remember that in Yalu we’re talking about the highest point of Jeogeot, and also about its center spot) and Maebaleia.

The top of Jeogeot in Yalu, owned by Bippie Camel, is also claimed through The Camels group, composed of Bippie and what appears to be a former partner who owns the group title, “The Baker.”

In a Snapzilla search for pictures from the Yalu sim, came across one where a Mini May is riding on the back of what appears to be, at first glance, an ice skating camel.

The caption: “Only Mini would ride a camel on an ice rink.” The shot was taken in June 2007, almost a full 2 years before another Camel, a human this time named Bippie, claimed land in this sim.

“Think I’m done now, Hucka D.”

Hucka D.:

A key is the camel, of course. 1 hump or 2 humps, just like the mtn. itself may be 1 humped or 2 humped. Older than dirt this mountain is, just like the owner of the top. It is implied — don’t you think? — that this owner has set himself up as an Adam, also formed from dirt and dust. If Adam is a camel, then the creation of Eve from his rib may be the transformation of a one hump camel into a two hump camel. Two from one. The Camels, then, are but one Camel now, like the Two Bakers are but one baker — you (“The Baker”).*

bb:

Is Hugh Rise, if that is the name of this mountain, a part of Sunklands?

Hucka D.:

You know that it is not, although it appears on your Sunklands map on the right hand side, above Second Sink, which was your intended goal for this weekend. You didn’t quite make it there, but you found something new and something perhaps even more important. You found the home of BossMoss, who may be the same as Mossman. BossMoss, the head of the Freakies, and Mossman are actually cousins, and rule the two peaks or humps of the ridge that makes up the highest collective point of Jeogeot. One hump becomes two.

bb:

What’s Camel got to do with it?

Hucka D.:

Bippie? A carrier. (pause) And the Taijitu dirtball from the Grid Survey site is also 2 humped, you see. Yin and yang; lighter and darker dirt or soil.

bb:

I suppose the Freakies tree in Second Lyfe would also stand in for the Tree of Knowledge in Adam’s Garden of Eden, Hucka D. You’re not suppose to eat of the fruit of that tree. Perhaps that’s what happened to the Freakies! (causing their monstrous shapes)

Hucka D.:

They seemed to have made the mistake of becoming trees themselves. But I think they wanted to. They are possibly happier now. Second Lyfe beyond their existence as cereal.

And then a final picture: that of BossMoss, perhaps the cousin of our Mossman (!)

*****

* Hucka D. here is referring to, of course, Baker Bloch and Baker Blinker, the two sides, animus and anima, of the rl baker b. (“Me”.)


Why are we here??

It’s a question I essentially woke up with in my head tonight.

Hucka D.:

Good opening tonight. I think all were pretty pleased. But it reinforced some ideas you had of SL.

bb:

Yes. SL in and of itself does not contain the energy to… (pause)

Hucka D.:

Why are you here, baker b.? There, I mean. We are not there now. We are here.

bb:

I have my small parcels, I have the collages set up the way they ought to be set up, I think. I am lockstepped with Arcadia Asylum. I will help protect the memory.

Hucka D.:

That’s good. The 10×10 is complete and in its virtual home. You know, inworld, that it has little value *just* as a series of virtual art pieces. The strength is out here, in real life. You are simply modeling an ideal climate from which to exhibit real life creations. You must wait until resolution is better.

bb:

Hold on…

*****

bb:

Well, Hucka D., it’s just a lot of fun. Relatively cheap, clean fun, at least for me anyways. My art has been influenced for the better. I get to practice my writing through the blog, mainly inspired by my Second Lyfe. But I think you want me to start thinking about escape.

Hucka D.:

In a way you already have, by giving up the larger part of the Aotearoa parcel, by downsizing the gallery needs of the 10×10 by getting rid of the still almost new Blue Feather Gallery. By allowing exploration to take front and center — for now. Toy avatar continuation is next (!)

bb:

Thanks for that. I actually went to Meeting Rock in the real world yesterday, Hucka D., despite all the snow on the road still. Lots of slogging, but not as much as the other day (on the same road). I’ll have to think more about Triads before returning, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

And that’s the other thing you must think about: TILE. A recommendation might be to put the Tile cube back on top of the Edwardston Station Gallery. You had it set up before right.

bb:

It’s broken, though, out of the purely 2048 parcel mode — I need more prims than that allows now, since the “Down The Rabbit Hole” exhibit is also a part of the cube, and the needed tubing for the “hole” itself. Rabbit Head (!) — that’s what I was going to check out tonight. Kou’s indicated rabbit head; it was the top post on his site when I revisited it yesterday in researching the Japanese explorers related post here (including, as well, Ujiyasu). But I (believe) you’re right — have to think about the Temple of TILE again, in a virtual sense. Edna’s photos…

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

Somehow the temple must be reinserted in the center of Big Sink as well.

Hucka D.:

Dead center, yes.

bb:

I’ll need at least one more parcel, Hucka D. A 512 will do it.

Hucka D.:

Keep your eyes peeled. And, yes, start at the Rabbit Head again.*

bb:

Thank you.

*****

Strange thing, perhaps: just after publishing this went to the skull in Kou’s picture (Coontz sim), and found an avatar there in the shape of a pill (still don’t understand that phenomenon). Every time I went to check into it I crashed out of SL — three times this happened. 3 times is the charm, they say, and so I quit for the night. Death skull? Creepy.


Party Prep…

I totally messed this set of pictures up by leaving my “Show Attachments” option checked, but I thought I’d include this one anyway coz it’s so cute. It’s Edna and me (yes, rl Edna in a sl Edna body) just outside the Aotearoa cottage* I’m helping her fix her appearance for the opening gala party tonight at the Ahren Art Gallery owned by Linnea Ahren, showing about 15 of my 10×10 collages.

We had a great time, although the turnout was a bit lower than expected. Still, all in all, a nice success, especially since Linnea is new at this game and this is my first full exhibit outside my own galleries (which, I suppose, don’t really count). Below is a snapshot from the opening, with, left to right, Edna, myself and Linnea.

And, yeah, that’s the first time for me in any kind of suit. Found it in some default avatar’s clothing folder in my inventory. Fits pretty nice, though, and Edna and I are also outfitted with sort of matching jeans. Now I’m obviously not the dress up type, but we got a kick out of it, and I can see going to other places every once in a while as well dressed as such. I need to head back to my Pudding Hill neighbor’s music venue (Pudding Club) sometime — maybe that would be an excuse, but I think a suit would look out of place (?). Maybe not.

* rl Edna is my rl wife of almost 19 years now.

What say you, Hucka D.?

“I’m even thinking about going to Sharon, somehow, to get away from all the snow.”

Hucka D.:

Step in the shoes of Ol’ Saint Nick, eh? Wish list for the kiddies. Toys. Avatars. Nice you read Notebook I and also the bulk of Notebook II. Should they be published sometime?

bb:

Don’t know. Maybe as just reference. I should probably keep reading… Notebook III, Bruno, maybe even Dump again… Black and White Notebooks.

Hucka D.:

Good to prepare for Sharon… will give you an off-the-mountain project. What is the connection between Sharon and Frank/Herman Parks? Toy avatars obviously… glop man and glop people. Creepy Crawlers. Childhood memories.

bb:

I’m actually looking quite forward to it, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Not this weekend but next weekend. “In Search of Ancient Sharon”.

bb:

Right. I remember the country’s name having something to do with Sharon Tate, the actress murdered by the Manson clan in the 60s. Did St. Nick of Barkley live in Ladyslipper?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Between the 2 great creeks (Poplin and Gore, named for childhood friends as were a lot of Wazob locations).

bb:

Of course we have the established link between Jeogeot and Wazob now, and, focusing in, Sunklands and Sharon through St. Nick of Barkley.

Hucka D.:

Why did the Freakies, or the equivalent thereof, establish their center just outside of Sunklands to the west, on your “Mt. Jeogeot”? Why did they become trees themselves? What is the relationship of BossMoss to Moss Man and Moss People? And Karoz for that matter?… the mountain lies between Sunklands and his old circle of influence centered in Noru. You should return to Noru more… Greater Chilbo.

bb:

I went the other night.

Hucka D.:

Maybe even rent there. Establish a presence there again.

bb:

The ESG (Edwardston Station Gallery), though, stays in Sunklands. In the center.

Hucka D.:

Of course! I was thinking more of TILE.

bb:

There is a gap or opening, caused by rift of present (Aotearoa) colliding with past (Noru).

Hucka D.:

The Moss People occupied the Highlands (Mt. Jeogeot and environs). They could move either east toward Sunklands or west toward Noru. They chose the latter. Karoz’s old house… you should think about renting there again now. Parcels in Sunklands and parcels in Noru both. Chilbo is close. Korean Channel. This is in the past but also the future. Doorway. Gap… rift. Back to the future.

bb:

Maybe this “gap” represents the end of my Jeogeot adventures. Like “Down The Rabbit Hole”.

Hucka D.:

Let’s say you took a vacation to Ladyslipper (inside) Sharon of Mythopolis in this month, after Day of Destruction VI. Good luck by the way!

bb:

Thanks.

Hucka D.:

You do this to get away from all the snow. Then in late March you return to Blue Mtn. to continue hiking season. But you get away for 1 weekend. You see some trees and flowers bloom. Old times revisited. Childhood. Biking.

bb:

Jeogeot seems to have many navels, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

You must think about the Rabbit Hole once connecting Jeogeot and Maebaleia. Still exists.

bb:

TILE was born on Mt. Jeogoeot??

Hucka D.:

*Yes.* TILE.

bb:

Something about the Korean Channel. Maybe about the Shamon province, which is like Sharon a bit. Actually, I think I might have called Sharon Shannon a couple of times in this blog. Haveta check asap.

Hucka D.:

TILE was born on Mt. Jeogeot. You can climb into the tree and come down in a different world. It’s a Freaky Tree.

bb:

Yes, it certainly is. Obviously if what you’re saying is true, then the scrabble overlap with the Korean Channel is implied. I’m going to take a look at Kou’s Jeogeot map again, Hucka D. Hold on…

*****

bb:

Well, I’m just going to have to research that rise more, Hucka D. Bippie Camel… any words on him.

Hucka D.:

A carrier, as I’ve indicated. Adam and Eve, AA and AB. The Camels… The Bakers. Obvious link.

(pause) bb:

I’m pretty sure what you’re calling The Highlands is the home of the Moss People of Jeogeot, Hucka. Bossmoss plus Mossman.

Hucka D.:

Moss was one of the monsters, yes. Munster. Freakies.

*****

bb:

Hmmmm… check this out, Hucka D. Just found a flickr set from someone who lives or lived in Hugh’s Rise. That’s right next to Mt. Jeogeot, or part of it (!) Maybe the mountain itself should be called Hugh’s Rise; hafta think about that more. I’m leaning toward Mt. Jeogeot. “Hucka D.?” Anyway… Hugh’s Rise is also mentioned in comments to this blog entry. Maybe is should also go to this Marawa sim where the owner of the blog, Chestnut Rau, bought land in April 2009. More to chew on.

Sharon, near Mythopolis

*****

*Although named partially for Sharon Tate superficially, Sharon may also refer to Sharon Stone, who was from Meadville, PA and was married at one time to Michael Greenburg. This is interesting, because Stone is a star in Sphere, used in MessiaenSphere. Is MessiaenSphere a symbol of the Sharon province by association? Sphere equals cubes of Glop People? Like in Sphere, the chromagraphic cubes of the Glop People are the first obviously alien creations found by the people of Wazob. The discovery changed the creative landscape of Wazob radically, divided into 3 areas: science, psychology, and arts (the Einstein, Jung, Schoenberg triad). Shock.

Greenburg began his affiliation with Richard Dean Anderson by producing the hit series MacGyver for five of its seven seasons on ABC. Greenburg and Anderson created Gekko Film Corp together. Greenburg has been executive producer of many projects starring Anderson, including Legend, two MacGyver television films for ABC (Trail to Doomsday and The Lost Treasure of Atlantis), and Stargate SG-1. Greenburg had a cameo appearance Stargate SG-1’s 100th episode Wormhole X-Treme!“.


Loose Thoughts…

Almost convinced now that the name of the Sharon country points to Sharon Stone and, through her, to MessiaenSphere. Yesterday I looked up mentions of the audiovisual synchronicity MessiaenSphere in this blog. Realize it is connected with the Rainbow Sphere, and also Ray the brainard who supposedly dwelt in Big Sink of Sunklands at one time, refusing to give up his seed nature and become the tree he was suppose to be. Also yesterday, just before hitting the sack, found reference in Notebook III to a Sharon who was probably the last star player for the Emerald Univ. team. If I remember correctly, Sharon was called Shannon sometimes as well. This was right before I gave up “playing” with these old basketball archetypes, perhaps about the time I graduated high school (?). Anyway, in the same short list of star Emerald Univ. players from past and present as Sharon (about 10-12 total) were Meade and Greenburg. Sharon Stone was born and raised in Meadville, Pennsylvania, and was married to Michael Greenburg from 1984 -1987.* Also in the list was a guard named Moss who played at the same time as Mead.**

I’m also thinking about *pretend* moving to the province of Sharon just outside of Mythopolis, at least for a certain period of time to be determined. I will live in Ladyslipper in an old shack. In My Real Lyfe, Ladyslipper and The Shack are The Same.

Now MessiaeSphere: At the end of this approx. 40 minute long synchronicity appears the subtitle “The Monster”. This is where you’re suppose to fade to black in the synchronicity, although the movie goes onward for another hour at least outside the context of this synchronicity.

“Running out of time, so let’s bring in Hucka D. I almost wrote ‘MessianSphere’ there instead of your name, Hucka D.”

Hucka D.:

Hello. I am greeting to be here.

bb:

Hi Hucka D. How are you tonight?

Hucka D.:

I am good feeling. Medicine for mindful watching.

bb:

Is the pretend more to Ladyslipper in what was the independent country of Sharon a good idea?

Hucka D.:

Goodful mind watching.

bb:

I have the idea that I should start practicing CHRO lines again, Hucka D., which would — excitement! — make the purchasing of a keyboard necessary (!).

Hucka D.:

RO RO RO.

bb:

I know this is not the end of My Second Lyfe, Hucka D., but… shifted.

Hucka D.:

In the middle on the mountain is a hole. Timescape.

bb:

One climbs up the Freaky Tree and comes down in a different time and a different scape, yes?

Hucka D.:

We need new characters. HARRY is too scary. But Pietmond… Piedmont… Petemond…

bb:

The Harry of Sphere and Petemond of this blog and of Jeogeot, seemingly, seem closely related. Both can manifest their thoughts onto a computer screen, like Karoz saw 2E2E on the Mos Ainsley computer terminals. The irony mark’s Unicode character is U+2E2E.

Hucka D.:

Karoz is a Moss Being.

bb:

Yes, he is. Mos… Moss. Also BossMoss now. What is going on?

Hucka D.:

Division of Monster as in a prism. Lightning House.

bb:

Chance meeting?
