Baker Blinker Blog Book VI: Jeogeot IV 02a (Nov 2010 01 of 02)


Pietmond Town Hall – November 2010

In Attendance: Baker Blinker, Baker Bloch, Karoz Blogger, Baker Buddy Boy Baker Boy Toy, Hucka Doobie, Wilsonia Foxclaw, Bracket “I’m baaack!” Jupiter, Warren Zevon.

First And Last Time Attendees (don’t bother to friend!): Baker Buddy Boy Baker Boy Toy (all rights reserved).

Motion made to kind of parody recent Chilbo Town Hall meeting minutes due to fact that creating own town minutes is way too hard. Motion carried by sustained laughter. Warren Zevon opposes.

Motion approved to rename the now vacant Gallery Nine to Gallery None. Warren Zevon volunteers to make sure all “i”s are changed to “o”s in town signage, and to clean out Gallery None structure of leftover art.

Many thanks to the Pietmond residents who donated to the building of Peter’s Cabin on Peter’s Way, thereby providing select pilgrims to Peter’s Grave shelter from the town’s often nasty elements. Wood donation: Warren Zevon.

We’ve been discussing how our community has shrunk and atrophied over time, and based on feedback from the 2009 Pietmond Census and other conversations, we think it’s time the Pietmond Town Hall on Main Way get demolished. The building, plunked down sometime in early 2007, will be replaced by a nice fountain. Future town meetings will be held in an open space to be announced.

Following the meeting, we went down to Warren Zevon’s Gerbils & More to look at potential fountain models around back. Warren provided an example of a classic gerbil fountain and we decided that we didn’t want to brainstorm along those particular lines.


Pietmond Main Street circa 2008.


Pietmond Main Street circa 2010 (yesterday)

Warren Zevon motions for 10th town meeting in a row that Pietmond declare Lime House, former residence of legendary child actor and pantomime horse Ticky Bill, an official historic site. As in previous meetings, motion was both carried and denied to the confusion of all.

The meeting adjourned at 12:24pm. The next Pietmond Town Hall is scheduled for 11AM SLT on December 11th. Full transcript available in the Pietmond Town Hall until demolition.

This entry was posted on Monday, November 1st, 2010 at 2:56 pm and is filed under town hall. Next meeting will be filed under open space.

Roots for RL…

Again and again it has been demonstrated to me that Second Life is a rather closed system that has a danger of feeding upon itself at times.

It’s the bee’s knees in terms of entertainment. Certainly better than network TV. It is the future of computing, a future — 3d web, that is. But once you don your avatar skin you are in a different world and it is small compared to the real one. Real small.

Have fun, push the envelope, and be aware while in that skin that it is not you. You are reading these words.

And now back to the show…

Wow! I never thought of SL as feeding upon itself to sustain itself! Everything in Pietmond is running so smoothly thanks to cannibalism???


Long Way/Short Way

“The grass so green. Skies so blue. Pietmond is really
great!”

~ Warren Zevon, circa 2007 (tomorrow)

“Let’s get right into it, Hucka D. We must exercise Pietmond memories or else quickly forget.”

Hucka D.:

Right. You must bring in others, though.

bb:

That’s fine. First off, Peter’s Way, what we’re calling Peter’s Way now, running parallel to Peter’s Mound…

Hucka D.:

Didn’t someone respond to this blog with the name of Mound recently? Never mind… continue…

bb:

This way use to be called Short Way before the death of Peter. Correct?

Hucka D.:

It’s your town. But: yes.

bb:

Peter walks into town just like Edward Bloom walked into Spectre in Big Fish, and found the lily white town. Lillywhite.

Hucka D.:

But then they find or uncover the labyrinth. Lillywhite *and* color after that.

bb:

Later Peter comes into town on the Long Way, perhaps after he comes back from the Rabbit Hole incident.

Hucka D.:

He is technically dead then.

bb:

Hmmm… Let me look over ponder other, possible questions.

Hucka D.:

Take your time.

*****

bb:

What’s in the episode, “It wasn’t the pilot” Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

“It wasn’t the pilot, Hucka D.”?

bb:

No, without the “Hucka D.” tacked onto the end.

Hucka D.:

Tachyons?

bb:

Is that an answer?

Hucka D.:

Is it? Then: yes. Tachyons. Tacky Bill. Ticky Bill’s twin half brother. Always wears plaid.

bb:

So Tacky Bill comes into town and causes trouble for his brother Ticky Bill. But Ticky Bill has already been demonstrated in episode 1 to be illusionary.

Hucka D.:

So will Tacky Bill. (pause)

bb:

Peter won’t fall for it this time.

Hucka D.:

Tacky Bill is real, though. From the 4th dimension. Always wears the green screen.

bb:

Like this guy?*

Hucka D.:

Maybe!

*****

bb:

I think I saw that fellow over on the Parktown blog. Yes, here** . Twins again, then. I think Tacky Bill may have been the same as this Pie fellow. And, hey, Pie… *Pie*tmond. See?

Hucka D.:

What of the Red Man in that picture? Hoofingstoof?

bb:

Is that his name? It says Cloven Hoof in the picture.

Hucka D.:

He is the one who split the Pie into two pieces. Or two halves of one Pie. Pietmond.

bb:

People will say… go ahead…

Hucka D.:

People will say he is the reason for the name: Pietmond.

*****

bb:

No I think episode three of the Pietmond series should be Peter talking to the preacher and undertaker, who are one in the same, about the just unearthed labyrinth and No Room Cemetery beneath the cathedral.

Hucka D.:

That’s Tacky Bill!

bb:

There were two of them.

Hucka D.:

He runs into them on opposite sides of town. It would be impossible for it to be the same Tacky Bill, because of the distance involved. Tacky Bill then fesses up and states he travels faster than time at times. Light, I mean. “Do you know Ticky Bill?” Peter then logically asks. “Well of course I know Ticky Bill,” comes the response. “He shows up at all town meetings, he’s always hanging around the library and checking out books, he’s always seen at local restaurants, wearing the latest cuts. Of course I know Ticky. Ticky Bill. Bill.” Peter, then: “No, Ticky Bill has been proven to be quite illusionary, Tacky Bill. So I’m afraid you are part of another town joke I’m the butt of.” Tacky Bill now (deeper voice): “No, in this case you are wrong. I *do* know Ticky Bill because I can travel faster than time. Did I say time again? I meant light, of course. Tacky Bill… tachyons. That’s where the nickname comes from.”

bb:

I love this little play, Hucka D., but I must go inworld sometime and take some pictures…

Hucka D. (continuing):

So Peter says to prove it, and that’s when Tacky Bill takes him to the Rabbit Hole. But Peter wakes up and it’s all a dream, after he is pushed in. He runs down to the funeral home and finds the usual Pie Hole there. Wait, that wasn’t the name… Werehole. Werewolf Hole…

bb (suggesting):

Warren. Warren Zevon by chance?

Hucka D.:

Precisely!

Gallery Jack Updates; Art Line

Added a pie chart representing the “Art 10×10” (alternately, the “Collage 10×10), right in front of the art kiosk in Gallery Jack, where I assume most people have been entering the gallery. A wall version of this basic concept existed at one time in the original Edwardston Station Gallery (see link just below).

Interesting that “pie” keeps coming up in various ways in the blog, and also personal emails.

And as I was just writing someone, this pie chart demonstrates an overall rhythm to the 10×10 that I probably shouldn’t go into in this particular post. Since, for example, I’ve already covered it here in part…


http://bakerblinker.wordpress.com/2009/03/28/we-better-chat-5/

Then this same day I also added a map of Jasper County, Illinois to the very center of the gallery. 6 of the 8 series of the 10×10 take their names from towns within this county, or, in the order they appear in the 10×10, Rose Hill, Yale, Newton, Hidalgo, Wheeler, and then, well, Jasper itself. All these towns appear on the map, and — cool thing — the map Hidalgo lies just beneath the Hidalgo sign within the gallery, and also the Yale name on the map is quite close to the Yale sign at the bottom of one set of stairs.

If I turned the map the other way, Rose Hill town name would similarly be very close to the Rose Hill sign.

The names of two series of the 10×10 do not appear on this Jasper County map, although they are both named for towns that exist not far at all from the borders of this county. This would be Greenup, 1st series of the 10×10, and then Oblong. Not coincidentally, these two series are housed in structures separate from Gallery Jack, or SoSo perched atop Gallery Jack now (Oblong series), and then House Greenup in front of the gallery (Greenup series). What this correctly implies is that Gallery Jack and the series within represents Jasper County itself, especially focused on the northern part of the county where, again *coincidentally*, a latitude event recently discovered called the Art Line passes through. In fact, the very center of this line (39.1) runs through the middle of all these illuminated towns.

Regular readers will know that a large labyrinth exists at the center of Piedmont which Gallery Jack is a part of now. The Art Line happens to be all about labyrinths. Must be some sort of connection don’t you think?? As I told my friend Flynn (friend in SL *and* RL), once I study up on all this, I plan to contact appropriate people associated with this cross country phenomenon and see if my collage project fits into their ideas. Quite exciting really! Flynn is also the one who told me about this Art Line, but neither of us knew that a connection existed with the 10×10 at the time.

JCCS

“We know several, additional things now. We know that the Art Line controls a Meander appearing Coast-to-Coast. Remember The Valley of Nye and the comparison with the Martian Valles Marineris? We know this has something to do with the Art Line, perhaps even caused by it (or visa versa?). This is deep stuff, literally and figuratively. We know The Bill are involved. HEC Canyon.

“The Line controls The Meander. However, there are additional controls set up. The Line builds up to the Gallery Jack which is the same as Jack County County Seat. JCCS for short.

“You can ask questions now.”

bb:

Can Gallery Jack move up and down The Meander? Or across the Art Line?

Hucka D.:

No. Next question. It has to stay put where it is to bridge the two, to calm the jitters of The Meander. It is JCCS.

bb:

OK, thanks. Alright. (pause) What does Monstrous Moonshine have to do with this, and why are the 2 numbers of Chance, when multiplied, 50 short of this legendary number?

Hucka D.:

The Meander is called the Art Meander, actually. What was the question again?

bb:

It was about the relationship of Monstrous Moonshine to Gallery Jack and the meeting of the, um, Art Meander with the Art Line.

Hucka D.:

My bad, it is actually The Meander. A third region has been identifed as well: A Pit. A proposal has been put forth to call these[, actually,] the Science Meander, Art Line, and Religion Pit, but I don’t think it has enough votes to pass.

bb:

What is A Pit?

Hucka D.:

It is the place a fully manifested Jack goes after assimilating the energy of the Gallery experience. It is a depression where Grassy Noll and I, Hucka Doobie, are locked in mortal combat forever and ever. It is the dual source of all.

bb:

Interesting. Hold on…

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

It is related, then.

Hucka D.:

Yes. You had another question?

bb:

Yes, back to Monstrous Moonshine…

Hucka D.:

Oh, right. Well the falling 50 short part is very important indeed. String Theory my friend. Calming The Jitters, The Meander. Science Meander. Art Line calms, leading to Religion Pit, all unofficial names for now, of course.

bb:

Can you tell me, physically, where this Religion Pit is?

Hucka D.:

You know where it is. Third Life. Beyond the First beyond the Second. Third. Jack is within. Giant Jack.

Part 2.


“Check it out, Hucka D.

This little synchronicity indicates to me that Otaki Gorge *itself* is this mythical Pit, this Religion Pit. Jack, you see. I didn’t remember it — Jack comes from somewhere else completely. The name, I mean.”

*****
bb:

Hmm. See, it wasn’t there just 1 month earlier. There’s, of course, the famous palm tree marking Peter’s Grave, still in the midst of my property, and thus in the midst of Pietmond as well.

Snapshot1290_005smaller

Hucka D.:

This would be just over a year ago, long before you bought the property. But you bought it from these “Bad Day Jack” guys, correct?

bb:

Right.

Hucka D.:

Well, then. I think you’re on to something (!)

bb:

Yeah. I think back to this post as well. Kind of about crop circles, true, but the mix of science, art and religion is mentioned here too. Maybe this combination of your Science Meander, your Art Line, and your Religion Pit is a path to true cooperation.

Hucka D.;

Gallery Jack in that diagram is perched next to A Pit [=Religion Pit] like the actual, virtual Gallery Jack sits atop the hill overlooking the Otaki Gorge pit. “Into The Pit”: an article in the very recently published Sunkworld magazine devoted to All Things Pietmond.

So now you have your self-feeding triangle. Art-Science-Religion.

moibustriangle

*****

bb:

But I’m researching the word “mobius” in the blog, and seeing that *you* — Hucka D./ Hucka Doobie — are the 4th that leads away from the self-feeding 3. You are the resolution.

Hucka D.:

Yes. (pause)

Part 3.


“Looks like a 3 parter.”

“So to conclude, I don’t think I could have found the Art Line until the Edwardston Station Gallery split into Gallery Jack, SoSo, and House Greenup, thereby isolating Jasper County oriented series more from the 2 from surrounding counties instead. And then, of course, I had to found Pietmond in Otaki Gorge to bring in the Religion Pit, which is the same as this gorge. (pause) Now it is time to find out what the labyrinth inside the TILE Cathedral really is all about. This is about the 4th beyond the mobius 3; this is about Hucka Doobie in large part but also Grassy. It is the Battle of the Centre of Amereca. Make your case, Hucka D.”

Hucka D.:

I make a case for Arkansas. I put forth the incredible career of the late Donald Harington, and, in particular to this case, his non-fiction work, Let Us Build Us a City: Eleven Lost Towns. I put forth that the 11th in that book, Y City, is the same as the “y” of Tyle, beyond TILE. If you understand the “Y” you understand all. (pause)

bb:

Thank you for that. Now is Grassy along today to make his counterproposal?

Hucka D.:

No. I will stand in for Grassy Noll as well. He would urge you to look north to Missouri and keep all within its borders. He would cite the [future] book [That Ass Peter], and also the presence of Ink, Missouri above and beyond Ink, Arkansas. He would point to the Rat Hole controlled by the Gang of Willard as key link between Second Life and Mythos and Earth all. Map Rat. He would point to the fact that the diamond in the dog’s tail actually refers to Missouri and not Arkansas, and that is the most precious and most permanent of all links, used year after year after year. (pause)

bb:

Do you counter his counterproposal?

Hucka D.:

Only in the fact that he is wrong. The end.

******

bb:

Hucka D., is the defeat of Missouri by Arkansas also the defeat of Peter?

[no answer]

*****

bb:

Hucka D., what is the [Science?] Meander?

Hucka D.:

It is an amazing, magnetized line of associations acting as far away as possible from the Art Line — at right angles to it, in effect. Circling around it, in essence, but in several revolutions, like the coils of a serpent. It is a long project. It contains a vast amount of backed up information. Carrcass-1, for example.

bb:

That *was* pretty amazing. Even had to create a blog category to house all those more abstract posts. Now I’m beyond even Carrcass-4 and heading, sometime, to Carrcass-5. And it’s because of Peter we can’t call them what they are.

Hucka D.:

Sapphire was in charge of Carrcass-4, and that’s why she’s basically left the scene now, since the formation of Pietmond and the shift from Norum. Kind of sad.

bb (repeating):

Kind of sad.

Part 4.


Amereca

“Looking at this old post, Hucka D., where “mobius” is first mentioned in this blog.

http://bakerblinker.wordpress.com/2008/05/19/i-see-work-in-progress/

“Wonder if you’d want to make any comments?”

Hucka D.:

I am a student of Tyle and SID now, and I have absorbed all that Booker T. can give me. I am ready to strike out on my own. You can join, of course. You have to[ in fact].

bb:

Then what is TILE?

Hucka D.:

TILE is the realization that lily white is not be all end all. There is color beyond white due to refraction. TILE is born.

bb:

And Peter showed the citizens of Pitchfork, i.e, Pietmond, at the time? This was when his momma — you, after all — appeared in town as a black-purple woman of obvious non-whiteness.

Hucka D.:

I was there. I caused trouble (smiles).

bb:

You still do!

Hucka D.:

Thank you. I try.

*****

bb:

So it’s obvious we can now *say* the name of the creator of Kansas City Life — just reading down that post again. It is Peter. Peter of Pietmond.

Hucka D.:

Yes. (adjusts head playfully once more)

bb:

Hucka D., Otaki Gorge is obviously the Religion Pit that Giant Jack moved into after absorbing the Science Meander into the Art Line. This created the movement toward The Pit.

Hucka D.:

It caused the creation of Pietmond, which, after all, begins with “Piet”… almost “pit”.

bb:

The Pit is a sink, then. (pause)

Hucka D.:

What happens when Giant Jack moves into the Pit from the Gallery?

bb:

I’m not sure…

Hucka D. (cutting bb off):

The labyrinth is made. TILE is born. Peter’s Cross.

bb:

OK. What of the corruptions of TILE? The labyrinth inside the TILE Cathedral, after all, is colored through the corruptions. The inside should be white and pure — perfect tetractys. But it’s not. Instead it is blue-black, violet, orange, and red-black, or 4-1-2-3 in the order you walk it.

Hucka D.:

When “1” is removed from “13”, making it “12”, what occurs?

bb:

That’s the beginning of the corruption.

Hucka D.:

Who is removed?

bb:

Jesus?

Hucka D.:

Good guess. And what does that mean?

bb:

The colors of Easter, blue and yellow, remain uncorrupted and stay at “13”. This is the letters a-m. The colors of Christmas are now singly corrupted, or red and green; letters n-z. It is supposed that the number removed to reduce 13 to 12 is Ozma of Oz, sent to Mombi by the Wizard and changed into a boy. Girl to boy; sex change [removal of “n”]. But it could also represent the erasure of Jesus as we follow him back to before he was born on Christmas day, and make Christ an “X”, I suppose.

Hucka D.:

X-ing him out. But at the beginning of his life and not at the end.

bb:

This then leads to the second corruption, which would be Halloween: orange and violet from orange and black.

Hucka D.:

Halloween is the removal of Jesus Christ from the holiday picture, true. Jack Skellington attempts to fill the void, but it is a tragedy. Jesus cannot be replaced, nor can Santa.

bb:

Hmmm… hafta think about that, Hucka D. Then what of the 4th, the final corruption? The 4th is more than a day, after all.

Hucka D.:

July 4th. Independence Day. The complete and utter separation of State and Religion. Politics has no room for God and Christ, or any other religion. 10 Commandments shattered on a courthouse stairs.

bb:

Did Peter actually *watch* what we’ll call “Pitchfork”, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Yes. I had to come in the daylight to tell you all this. You did not awake in the middle of the night last night. Or you didn’t have time for *me*.

bb:

Yeah, sorry about that. So when did Peter watch this?

Hucka D.:

It was shortly after the uncovering of the TILE labyrinth inside the cathedral, transforming the town from what it was before.

bb:

“Pitchfork” is about the moving of the Old No Room Cemetery from Norum, now kind of Noru [sim], to Pietmond. This is because Norum became symbolically flooded, shall we say. Linden Labs grid passed through, transforming, in turn, Sapphire to Lapis and Lazuli. LL. Karoz, her son, stayed, but it was never the same after that. Peter joined Karoz in Norum for a bit.

Hucka D.:

Norum’s Peter and Pietmond’s Peter united after the viewing of “Pitchfork”.

bb:

Getting back to the 4th, then. Amereca was born at that time. Amereca the Great and the Beautiful. And this combined the 3 forces we just talked about, or Science Meander, Art Line, and Religion Pit. The 4th was created which was true Amereca or future Amereca. In that sink itself, and Sunklands as a whole, I suppose.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Arkansas and Missouri fused. Sunklands each.


Eastern Rabbit Hole… Monkey City

Nice landscape on the west side of Heterocera, on a stepped, Linden stream Baker thought worthy of a snapshot.

Baker’s always looking for good, cheap land to buy, fortunately or unfortunately, and found this irresistable 1024 parcel caddycorner to, yes, the eastern opening of the famed Jeogeot-Maebaleia Rabbit Hole itself, in the Ulyanovsk Oblast sim. Fantastic!

You can’t enter the Rabbit Hole because the encompassing 1024 parcel is banned. And as I stated in an earlier post from February of this year, the hole appears to have been “damaged” (narrowed) since I first found it back in August, ’09. I should probably write more on the subject, and probably will now that I have land so close to one of the two openings. Very exciting.

And in rechecking photos in the original post on the Rabbit Hole, composed just after I found it, I definitely see that the Maebaleia half has narrowed in the meantime. My guess is that someone played around with terraforming the bottom of the 90 meter deep sinkhole — and also, if so, that perhaps it can be “fixed back”.

Interesting southern terminus of Route 8B, a couple of sims west and south of Ulyanovsk Oblast.

Scene from near what we have called Crabwoo in this blog, now basically nonexistent except for a few,remaining sidewalks and the dominating presence of the main Dazed and Confused outlet store. The parcel is called Orthopraxia Village, a “Christian community” consisting of about a half dozen, small structures surrounding a central courtyard with a cross. In rechecking today, Baker sees that the center of the Vyacheslav sim, and thus the center of the old Crabwoo residental community, lies just in front of this cross now (facing the crucified Jesus).

Another, more lighthearted scene near Crabwoo, this time in Moliman, about 300 meters southwest of Dazed and Confused.

Then another really interesting find in just teleporting around at seeming random again this night: almost a full sim burg called Monkey City on the southern edge of the Nautilus continent. More soon enough about that!


Thoughts…

Pietmond still going strong. Have a problem with prim limits on the property currently, which I’ve encountered before once on another parcel. Think a sim restart will cure it, whenever that occurs. In the meantime I’ll be patient.

Discovered *Second Life’s* Monkey City tonight, and promptly rented an urban grunge space for 50 lindens a week (25 prim limit). Right next to the Nautilus Sea, so I may be exploring those waters soon. Not far from the Rabbit Head Island (rabbits!), which, to my surprise, I haven’t featured in a blog post yet, stopping here in my exploration of those seascapes.

Besides the great location on the southern border of the Nautilus continent next to the Nautilus Sea, the name Monkey City also attracted me in and of itself. Searching for phrase “Monkey City” within the blog brings up these posts.

11/7/10:

Such great hikes recently in RL. May have found another Mossman enclave. Don’t have name for it yet. In Frank Park. *Must* take more RL pictures!

*****

Hucka D.:

You still need me.

bb:

I know. The blog must continue. The new Meander/Line/Pit information is quite interesting — fascinating, even. My friend Flynn helped.

Hucka D.;

You must think of RL contacts. Do not give up on [delete name]. He doesn’t know it, but he needs you more than you need him.

bb:

Thus it’s easier for me to discard[ the friendship].

Hucka D.:

Yes. Same with several others. They do not understand what you have to do. So you say phooey on them.

bb:

I think I have that right.

Hucka D.:

Yes. And no.

bb:

What am I suppose to do? Continue a one sided relationship?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Because you are more stable.

bb:

Here’s what I’ll do, then. I’ll offer to listen to his music.

Hucka D.:

He wants cooperation. He doesn’t know how to get it from you.

bb:

He’s a [delete].

Hucka D.:

If you say so. He is like you, but with not as much time. He thinks he is a genius. And he is.

bb:

Aren’t the two synonymous? (smiles)

Hucka D.:

Geniuses have to do things their own way. No two ways about it. Beat their own path.

bb:

And look around and absorb what is right there in front of your eyes.

Hucka D.:

He is frustrated because of the time factor, which is not as much a concern for you. You *know* you will get these projects done.

bb:

Do I? I don’t feel like it most of the time.

Hucka D.:

If you break it off…

bb:

Karmic repercussions?

Hucka D.:

There are others out there with their own life.

bb:

They can live their own life, I have no problem with that. I just don’t want it to impinge on my own life, especially limiting belief systems.

Hucka D.:

He is you in the past. And maybe the future [Hucka D. is saying this to warn me]. Look at the email.

*****

bb:

Alright, you happy?

Hucka D.:

Yes. You gave it a try. In your own way.

bb:

Thanks. Now to other matters tonight?

Hucka D.:

Yes (pause). I want you to take Dark Side of the Rainbow as far as you [delete]ing can to keep it alive. Run away from [delete name] as far as possible while accepting what he can give you.

bb:

OK. That sounds better.

Hucka D.:

I thought it would (smile). [delete 2 sentences] You have work to do *young* boy. (smiles again)

bb:

Thanks.


Everything was gushing blood…

Upon a relog it thankfully went away. This was a new one, and it was in all the sims I teleported into at the time. “Blood” spewing and oozing all over the place. Everywhere.*

*****

* Check replies for the solution to the mystery (thanks HBA!!). But I still haves my ghost prims. 😐


2 new sinks? I believe we must declare it so.

Just when I start to think I can finally give up on SL, it begins to surprise me again. Not necessarily this seascape in the new Sea of Fables, although it is new, and an improvement over the old sea bed…

… but, kind of, some new landscaping in Nascera, and on the oldest square of 64 sims, the core of the continent that I explored last winter to a large degree. I have a hankering for more biking adventures on this continent to see all the changes, and just to soak in some purdy colors. 🙂

I’ll report more on these and other finds at that time. For now just some prelim pics.

I was sort of surprised to still see the White on White Gallery near my new dwelling spot in Ulyanovsk Oblast (next to the Maebaleia side of the Rabbit Hole), since it doesn’t have an attached, official Sasun Steinbeck art kiosk any longer. I think these smaller hole-in-the-wall type galleries (and I’m using the phrase in a positive sense here) are gaining more and more of my respect, as I see the same type of works over and over again in the larger art venues. The “art for art’s sake” phrase springs to mind, although I don’t think that’s exactly the description I’m looking for. More a detachment from what *I* most deeply care for, and that is the surrounding landscape (in most cases). At the very least, with small galleries like this, on the ground, the landscape is just outside a nearby door. It brings a sense of airiness, and attachment to the virtual world at large. Often large galleries, on their own islands, for instance, whatever the advantages of such a setting, also set themselves apart from the common SL creators. Sometimes this is justified, of course. I’m just adding my 2 cents here in saying that occasionally, to me, it appears exclusive and aloof to do so. But there’s that old saying about the 2 types of users that populate Second Life, the mainlanders and the estate people. I’m definitely in the former category now, which has been a minority for several years.

*And* I’m also interested in the fact that an artist named Lemmon exhibits in a sim with the Rabbit Hole, as I’ve stated before. It’s reassuring he’s still here now that I am as well.

This fairly surprised me: a sim in the center of the Maebaleia continent that has double the terraforming limits of any of the numerous sims I checked nearby after discovering the anomaly. Surrounding sims all have the standard +4/-4. This one (Ilythyia): +8/-8. I was tipped off to this exaggeration by the large mound pictured below, apparently created to help hide a nearby roadside ad billboard. It seemed unnaturally tall when I passed by it while traveling down Route 8, and so turned out to be. To other people this type of quirk may be ho hum boring, but to me it’s spice for the otherwise sometimes bland meal that is SL.

Nearby deep holes, also in Ilithyia. Not nearly as deep as, for example, the Rabbit Hole (either Jeogeot and Maebaleia “sides”), but still unnaturally so, if you will. I do not know of any other sim outside Sansara (oldest mainland mass) and perhaps a couple on Heterocera (2nd oldest) that allow this non-conformative terraforming, to give some perspective on how rare the phenomenon appears to be. Apparently some bug allowed the creation of the amazingly deep Ulyanovsk Oblast hole — just as was the case with the Jeogeot (Blackmount sim) side of same — because now the sim has the usual +4/-4 limits, like all others I’ve found on the newer continents beyond the original two, save Ilithyia now. For this reason alone, I would gladly give up a present non-Otaki Gorge parcel to by one here, just to play around with the anomaly — same would go *doubly* for Notata (Heterocera; +16/-16 limits). Fun with holes and hills!

And *this* most definitely surprised me (!), for right under my nose all this time is what appears to be a 9th, official mainland sink, and a fairly large one at that. And, ta boot, I use to rent on the lip of this thing (Spring 09) without realizing what it was at the time. This would be what we will call the Finsteraarhorn sink, after the main sim it lies within. But, somewhat similar to Chasm Deep on Corsica (which it’s comparable in size to, if not in depth), the newly identified sink obviously spills over into at least one more sim, Dammastock in this case.

Below, Baker poses for a picture in heavy vegetation atop a Linden tunnel positioned at the lowest point of the sink, it seems, with a freshly emerged Route 8 stretching west ahead of him. Behind Blochs here, the highway moves “underground” for one whole sim (Dammastock again) before reemerging on the east side of Bietschhorn.

And then *another* surprise this night to add in: the discovery of even a 10th, mainland sink, and not far south of the Finsteraakhorn sink on Maebaleia. Again, we have the requisite texture color change, and the needed size, it seems. This particular one is more obviously split between 2 sims, with the bottom of the sink almost straddling the line between them. This would be Grossglockner and Schreckhorn. Perhaps interestingly, Grossglockner is named for the 3rd highest peak of the Alps by prominence, while Finsteraarhorn, although located a number of sims to the north (five), is named after the 2nd highest peak of same, again according to prominence. Mount Blanc, also the highest overall Alp mountain, would come first in the same list.

While I’m formulating a better name, I’m just going to call this Grossglocken/Schreckhorn depression “Sink X”, remembering the recent mention on this blog of Plant X located in Earth, Texas. In conjunction with this, I also think back on the so-called “Magic Square of Earth” I’ve encountered in several web searches, which happens to be 10 numbers wide and high, or 10×10 — “X” again, then, as on a clock face. I specifically remember a Great Serpent Mound site coming up among the few hits on this phrase, but which seems to no longer exist. I’ll have to check on that — I believe I have some printouts of the web site somewhere in my files.*

As you can see by the picture below, Sink X is a pretty deep affair, with the bottom presently at about the 29 meter level. The water level in the associated sims is at the normal 20 meters, meaning that there’s no way to terraform down to it while inside the sink.

A tangential note: I wonder if this fellow and his namesake phenomenon (Lamb Shift) have anything to do with the Cross of the Lamb and our Peter?

http://www.osti.gov/accomplishments/lamb.html

Below are the 2 new sinks as they appear in the terrain view of the inworld map. Finsteraarhorn Sink is centered by the larger, isolated beige area to the north, and Sink X is identified through the smaller, isolated beige texture patch to its south. Arguments will appear saying that both of these depressions are too close to the coastline to count as true sinks, but I think they will be overruled by the majority who judge such things. Is this ruling body the legendary Confederation of Sinkers or a part thereof?**

Maebaleia/Satori (2): Finsteraarhorn, X


Taking its turn…

“I become more convinced each mainland continent has a particular story to tell. Maebaleia’s is taking its turn, now. (pause).”

Hucka D.:

That was my daddy’s continent as well. Jeogoet and Maebaleia. Korean and Japanese.

bb:

Your daddy built the Rabbit Hole?

Hucka D.:

Yes. To counter the centering energies of Big Sink in Sunklands. Easter needed to be remembered. We made Ned of Barton into a St. St. Lemon of Troy. But…

bb (guessing):

Two different people?

Hucka D.:

You must work next on your Pietmond TV series and the episodes. An inspiration is Kingdom with its own Peter. Peter of Ballykissangel as well. Maybe. Torchwood even, possibly. You know in the first episode Ticky Bill is explored, the second involves Peter’s mother, me, and racial inequality. I was more Peter’s mother than his own mother, etc. At the end of that episode, the second, the labyrinth is uncovered. Episode 3 deals with, “The Labyrinth Problem”. Townspeople start walking it one by one. Peter thinks: why are the inner parts colored the way they are. He gets a hold of a copy of Pitchfork. He makes a connection — Pitchfork is a successor of…

bb (guessing again):

Dark Side of the Rainbow?

Hucka D.:

Peter knows that the labyrinth should be colored differently if it is actually about chakras, and that, from outer to inner, the colors should follow the rainbow spectrum. (pause) In books at the library, this is what he has found out. Half of the townspeople want to rip out the rest of the pews in the church, half want the labyrinth and cemetery covered back. But that would be continued desecration of the dead, see. Warren Zeevon gives him Pitchfork. Warren is the undertaker and preacher in one; lives in the House of Truth. Or maybe Home o’ Fibs. He’s a bit jealous of Peter coming to town… admits this to him. Warren donates wood for Peter’s Shed. No, that’s later. Warren opens Gerbils & More on the edge of town. Has fountains around back. I’m breaking down.

bb:

The labyrinth can’t be covered back up, because of the cemetery. If it weren’t for the cemetery it probably would have, and later been forgotten, or to be forgotten again.

Hucka D.:

The cemetery saves the labyrinth, yes. The old town saves the new town. Norum saves Pietmond.

bb:

Peter eventually falls into or is pushed into the Jeogeot/Blackmount Rabbit Hole. Comes out in Ulyanovsk Oblast, much like Laura Dern in INLAND EMPIRE and her own hole.

Hucka D.:

Exactly like that. (smiles)

bb:

Peter finds Lemmon there. St. Lemon I mean. He is playing the double album White On White in a nearby house. Julia… Back in the USSR. Yes, the latter.

Hucka D.:

Yes!

bb:

White On White represents the 2 original vinyl albums of the White Album by the Beetles. In the alternate reality this is called White On White.

Hucka D.:

Peter interrupts the show at the gallery/house. Go back to White on White, the actual gallery, then, and take notes. Look at the art again. Not “art for art’s sake.” Real, true mainland gallery, sans kiosk. In the episode the same goes. Lemon is a gallery owner, but more. Lemon remains a disembodied spirit, more or less, on Jeogeot. Only on Maebaleia is he humanized in any manner.

bb:

Lemmon is Lenin. Lemon is Lenin.

Hucka D.:

He is watching ESBUM. From beginning to end. It is the new Rainbow. He will be sitting there watching the TV and it will turn into ESBUM*

*****

bb:

Peter has to be hypnotized to remember the other side of the Rabbit Hole in Ulyanovsk Oblast. This story was built in because of the Rabbit Hole and the two sides and where they are.

Hucka D.:

Up to this point, Peter had only heard Lemon as a disembodied voice, mainly from early in his life [in Pudding Hill]. He told me about it. I said he was imaging it. He said no. The Ancients.

bb:

I *must* find out what happened to Peter in Maebaleia.

Hucka D.:

You are. You will. Lemon. Lemmon. Pip. Pep. Lemon World once more. *Uli* once more. See?

bb:

Yes! [Uli resonates with name Ulyanovsk].

*****

bb:

Fascinating stuff. Thank you, Hucka D. Now I think Peter maybe researches labyrinths at the local library after uncovering the one in what’s now known as TILE Cathedral. He may even have to go back to a larger library in Pudding Hole, Big Sink, perhaps where he went to college. Yet he cannot find an exact match for the one in Pietmond. He remains puzzled. He explains to various people in the town his dilemna… his dead end. Warren Zeevon approaches him… gives him Pitchfork. Or maybe a cube. The Cube of Lyra. It is wrapped up in a secret place in the church. A relationship with the recent “unwrapping” of the labyrinth in the cathedral is inferred. It is actually 32 prims but in a special way. Like Karoz’s Fuchsia Diamond of 32 prims as well.

Hucka D.:

It enlightens. Martin.

bb:

The Coast To Coast diamonds are found. West-Centre-East.

*****

bb:

It’s buried at the end of No Way?

[no answer]

*****

bb:

I’m going to test this out here, Hucka D. Dorothy of Oz finds a cube, or the Scarecrow finds a cube — the Lyra cube. It is golden in color, maybe golden-silvery. Illuminated in the full moon at a certain angle, it shows a clip from the ’39 classic Wizard of Oz movie where Dorothy is locked up in the Witch’s castle, and sees Aunt Em in the crystal ball, calling for her. The face of Em is replaced by the face of the Witch — Dorothy realizes that the Witch has been listening in through the crystal ball.

On the *other* side of the cube is another clip from earlier in the movie. Or maybe it’s the cube showing it at the new moon. It includes the crystal ball again, except in the Wizard’s wagon. The Wizard is pretending to see Em in the ball — ah, now I remember: *males* see one “side” of the cube and females the other. So Dorothy and the Scarecrow are explaining the two parts of what they are seeing, and assuming it is the same. Only later on, when Dorothy realizes her version was in color and the Scarecrow’s in black and white, do they compare notes closer and realize it is similar but not the same. The Wizard is obviously not the Witch, which was missed before. “Hucka D.?” [no answer] So the Scarecrow does some thinking, which, as everyone knows, he’s good at, and comes up with the solution that both sides are the same side, and its a *3d* movie. How to show two sides in one? They set up a movie theater, or Ozma allows them to show it at her theater in the Emerald City. They somehow superimpose the two films. When they do they are someplace different — not in Oz any longer.

And then another part of this work will be the Scarecrow figuring out how to divide the cube to make more cubes, and to also copy the first — very smart! Prof. Wogglebug helps? The original cube is divided into 8 more cubes. Scarecrow calls the original cube a “home cube”. Scarecrow describes what he sees on each of the 8 cubes, and they figure out an order 1 through 8. Dorothy does the same.

Later they realize they were making things too complicated, and build a machine to *slice* the cube as they are watching it at the same time. This helps preserve the stereoscopic effect.

They may have to make special “3d” glasses to view both “sides” of the film. Once this happens they see the whole. What is this?, they cry in unison. And why was it brought here. “I found it at the end… sorry.

Hucka D.:

“I found it at the end of No Way, so it seems appropriate that there’s no way it could be real and visible to us. It is like from another world.” The townspeople nod in agreement.

bb:

Are we, then, back in Pietmond?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Back in Pietmond. Peter: “You have to continually *halve* the cube, and that’s what this machine is for, this one here.” He pats it. This would be the projection machine Warren digs out of his cellar, perhaps. Warren Zeevon smiles… is pleased that he has at last served a useful function for the town.

bb:

Does the moss being Karoz have to run the special projector in order for it to work?

*****

* I assume Hucka D. is referring to Esbum Michigan, perhaps like she is seated here shortly after her 2008 birth in the old Temple of TILE in Gliese.


Small New Things…

Organized “Downtown” a bit more, but still unsure of what to do with the two large rooms there long term. Confederation of Sinkers hq? Another gallery, perhaps one devoted to outside artists? Or just a continued place for town junk and such.

Widened the part of Main Way running alongside Downtown;

Inserted a RL labyrinth picture beside the SL labyrinth in the TILE Cathedral;

Scripted a prim (corner of Orange House, Baker’s home) to tell me when a sim restart occurs. Come on come on come on!

Added funny freebie rock to the south of Downtown, on Long Way;

Added map of Pietmond to Gallery Jack, near where most people would teleport in;

And beside it inserted this photo of a portion of the Great Serpent Mound in Ohio, which is part of the Art Line I mentioned in previous posts.

Still awaiting the sim restart, which I believe happens in the middle of next week. Then maybe I’ll play around with more structures in the skybox. Very content with Pietmond still. Not ready to sell quite yet, har har.


Ao…Oa

“I suppose I better ring up The Huckster. Quick, easy information.”

Hucka D.:

You think I’m not real, don’t you. What did you call it earlier[ today]? Controlled schizophrenia?

bb:

Yeah. But not even that much control. That’s because you’re not a classic-type character. You blend into me too easily. It’s bad writing. But it’s good writing as well, because of that quick, easy info I mentioned.

Hucka D.:

You should flesh me out. Let me breath.

bb:

You’re fleshed out as a bee. Anthropomorphic Bee.

Hucka D.:

Cool word! Can I try? An-thro-po-mor-phic. Anthropomorphic. Nice. Nifty. Yes, that’s what I am. Half bee, half amphibian.

bb:

Er… never mind. So Huckster. Hucksteradoobie. What will we talk about tonight?

Hucka D.:

Well there’s always the continued development of the Pietmond TV series, canceled only last year as I understand.

bb:

Yes, I think we’re up episode 3, where the townspeople watch the 2 sides of Oz as one. But it starts out in Oz. Pretty cool, Hucka D. Think that’s the way it is suppose to be.

Hucka D.:

Yes it switches back to Pietmond, and the Lyra cube, the one being sliced for the film, turns into the Fuchsia Diamond. 32 sided. Almost round but not quite. Very clear, very glinty. Maybe not even that much pink. Maybe just one pink.

bb:

Warren allows Peter to take it home if he makes the entrance to his house non-phantom while inside. Locks the house, in other words.

Hucka D.:

Warren has to show him how to do this, so naive he is. Peter never locked his doors before. So he sticks it in a corner and low and behold it starts talking to him. “3 minutes before sim restart. Please save all work”. “Sim?” he asks aloud. “What is a sim?” Then “1 minute before sim restart. Please save all work.” You see, Peter doesn’t really know that there are powers that be, the Lindens, who rule this world.

bb:

Are the Lindens already here in Pietmond, then?

Hucka D.:

No, actually. Maybe it just recites some nonsense. But it does talk to him. Certain of that.

bb:

Maybe it tells him about Pitchfork.

Hucka D.:

He runs down to Warren’s Gerbils & More and looks at fountains around back. No, sorry, he runs down to Warren’s…

bb:

… and gets him to tell him about the Pitchfork matching diamond. It’s shifted.

Hucka D.:

The sim does restart… brown out… and then when it comes back online everything is gushing and oozing blood. Like he’s in hell. Pitchfork. But only briefly. He runs down to Warren’s and Warren tells him he must log off and back on, and that Pitchfork has been activated, which is a bad, bad thing. “Everything is gushing and oozing blood!” Peter exclaims. “I’ll say it’s bad!” Warren admits to him he doesn’t know how to log off and on, and that he will have to go across the road to Aotearoa to visit John The Butcher to get more advise. But he is not a very kind soul, although his physical appearance is quite attractive. He lives in the blood red house. His head is shaped like a heart and his soul is a knife cutting off this heart head. He is love and vile in one. It is the Vileness Fish come for Sapphire[ once more].

bb:

*He* caused it.

Hucka D.:

Yes, Peter must go on across the road to the man with the blood red head for a heart and seek advise. Peter knows instantly that he is the one doing the gushing. Jointly they go up to the well house on the hill, perhaps an 8-sided affair. The well is gushing blood, seemingly. Ao, as he is known to townspeople (and later the sim is named for him), says that Peter must do the turning off himself, and it won’t work otherwise. Peter finds the handle very hard to turn — in fact he can’t turn it. Ao turns it off easily, but immediately turns it back on, saying Peter must turn it off and not him. Peter is understandably miffed; attempts again. Goes outside and looks for an object to give leverage. Ao doesn’t offer to help with the search, but suggests he go back into Pietmond to find something. Peter walks back across the road into Otaki Gorge, and thoughts cross his mind that this is another town joke on him, like with Ticky Bill in episode 1. Is Ao the real Ticky Bill? he ponders.

bb:

They call him the Crimson King. He was an artist living in Second Life. Ao the Crimson King. Perhaps with a blood red band.

Hucka D.:

But Peter doesn’t go back to Ao’s well house immediately. Thinks everything will resolve on its own. But all the “blood” finally gets to him again and he runs across the road, banging on Ao’s door. “Turn the bloody thing off! Just do it! I can’t!”. The blood suddenly stops. The nearby cypress trees, all transparent textures, are transparent again.

bb:

Ao is the same as Oa, isn’t he. With a Tear in the middle, perhaps a rip, perhaps a drop of water emitted from an eye.

Hucka D.:

A vortex opens. Peter sees into the heart of Aotearoa, future. He sees a garden, a path, a rose, a man. Blood red and smiling. Smelling the rose, absorbing the rose with his nose. Nose of Rose, then. In a garden by a path in the sink. He sets the broken stem containing the rose on the path. It turns white. He is gone.

bb:

Peter has met Dr. Blood for real.

Hucka D.:

Dr. Blood, yes.


Hilo

“You’re Hucka Doobie’s child,” he said to Peter. “How do you know Hucka D.?” came his reply. “Well,” said Lemmon, “it’s always good to know the name of your immediate boss, har.”

bb:

Or “hee”.

Hucka D.:

Hee.

bb:

So when Peter remembers Maebaleia and exiting the other side of the Rabbit Hole, he finds out his mama — you — is actually owner of both continents, and not a poor maid-servant at all.

Hucka D.:

At all. She inherited all from husband Kelley. My husband, my father. Maybe my son. No, not my son. Son-in-law perhaps. Maybe grand son-in-law.

bb:

Alright. Lemmon, let’s see, tells Peter that they’ve met before, and in Uli. “Oh, is that the nickname…” you go ahead.

Hucka D.:

Here’s what Peter replied: “Oh, is that the nickname of this sim, Ulyanovsk Oblast? I had to practice saying it to remember it; can understand why the name would be shorted.” “No,” said Lemmon back. “Just Uli. U-L-I (spelling it out). On Sansara. You’ve been to the Sansara landmass haven’t you? “No,” came the response. For Peter had never been outside Sunklands until now, although he knew of the other landmasses. So everything was turned on its head. In Jeogeot, Hucka Doobie, me, was low and on Maebaleia I was high. Lo-hi. Hilo. Peter knew that his mother had actually invented virtual reality, along with superglue. Denver Pyle merely starred in the attached infomercials.

bb:

This St. Lemon had almost forgotten the St. Lemon of Rubisea, his former existence.

Hucka D.:

Yes. He had almost forgotten. Sitting there watching his TV day after night and night after day. White on black on white on black. He was awaiting orders from his boss. Meanwhile he watched the tellie.

*****

“What about Easter? What about the bunny?” he said, shaking Lemmon who can’t remember he is a saint from head to foot. Trying to get him awake. Slapping him even, maybe.

bb:

Is Lemmon the bunny?

Hucka D.:

Yes! St. Lemon of Troy. Bunny Boy.

bb:

Not Peter.

Hucka D.:

Er…


“Oh, is that the nickname of this sim?”

“Oh is the nickname of this sim?”

Hucka D.:

Er.

bb:

“Cardinal Match”. How’s that for a tile [sic?] of a Pietmond episode. Fast flying; spinning rapidly. On the opposite side, the slow moving or even inert Chocobo. This is Fuchsia again.

Hucka D.:

Nickname of this sim?

bb (quoting):

“Gentlemen, when two separate events occur simultaneously pertaining to the same object of inquiry, we must always pay strict attention.” The Great Dale Cooper.

Hucka D.:

Lynch’s most successful character after all. Most famous[ I mean].

bb:

Redbird, blackbird. Cards, then. Red and black. Red and blue to red and black. Blood. Pouring, gushing, oozing, seeping. Dr. Blood. Does he disappear from the Pietmond series after “Ao… oa”?

Hucka D.:

A program in 822 lines of BASIC. Basically speaking: yes.

bb:

Golden City? Golden Boy Guy? Golden Hair, golden mean? Meaning?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_ratio#Music

Hucka D.:

So the [short] answer is the nickname is both AO and OA. Dr. Blood.

bb:

So also Blood Dr.

Hucka D.:

Crop circles. What *are* *they* *saying*?

bb:

The same thing Jacob said: “help me.”

Hucka D. (repeating bb’s earlier quote):

“When two separate events occur simultaneously pertaining to the same object of inquiry, we must always pay strict attention.” Jacob and Crabwoo. Crabwood I mean. Maybe both and once and once at both. Two places at once. 2 in 1. Foreign One. Find that other quote we’re thinking about in that simultaneous way that we do.

bb:

Thanks, Hucka D. Hold on once more.

“Beware the bearers of FALSE gifts & their BROKEN PROMISES. Much PAIN but still time. EELrijue. There is GOOD out there. We OPpose DECEPTION. COnduit CLOSING [bell sound]”

And that last part, as I understand, should actually read “respond” instead of “bell sound”. Purposeful mistranslation? Golden Guy?

Hucka D.:

So respond. Locke got shot because of what he heard. Lock and load. He almost merged with the Great Dharma Initiative.

Jack Campbell again. Jacob… Jack. Jack is trying to help?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Descent into The Pit. Religion. Hucka D., me, is the 4th. TILE. Labyrinth, In and out. Olean… I mean… I forgot what I meant.

bb:

“It’s a bad day Jack.” Hellfire and brimstone. Pitchfork.

End of age

“Perhaps some final shots of the original Confederation of Sinkers hq, Hucka D. I think that land will sell fairly quick.”

Hucka D.:

Golden Guy. Past time paradise. Difficult, nay impossible to re-create. End of age. Golden.

bb:

But now we can resume our discussions about the Pietmond series.

Hucka D.:

Very important that is. And *I* am the true Golden Boy.

bb:

I don’t doubt it!

Hucka D.:

You will have another chance with Big Sink. Pietmond will be a center for a while. All winter. Return to Nascera. Keep exploring!
