Baker Blinker Blog Book VIII: Post-Jeogeot 03 (June-Aug 2012)


Thoughts

Hucka D.:

Bill Agreement rearing its bald, ugly, warped head again. Brainard head. What up?

bb:

Hi. Billfork Agreement yeah.

Hucka D.:

Bill. The.

bb:

Soo… we have the Science Meander meandering across the country like a Labyrinth, until Illinois. Until Jasper.

Hucka D.:

Careful. 4-Square.

bb:

Just like the Art 10×10 is 4-Square.

Hucka D.:

Yes. I’m here to help.

bb:

So you have the Labyrinth energy being replaced by the Art 10×10 energy at this point.

Hucka D.:

Art, yes. Heart. Art.

bb:

And *behind* the Art 10×10, its other side as it were, lies the Billfork Agreement.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

The Writing 10×10 [immediately predating the Art 10×10] was only preparation for the Art 10×10.

Hucka D.:

Kind of.

bb:

But the Art 10×10 is more geometrically precise.

Hucka D.:

One could say that.

bb:

The Billfork Agreement must have then included the Art 10×10, its overall design and the basis in that particular county.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

The Science Meander theory was set up right before the advent of Billfork and potential agreement, a couple of months before the Art 10×10 began as well.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

It was set up during the time of the board Synchpatch, USA, which is sort of a lower octave of what’s happening on the Synchronicity Phenomena Board currently.

Hucka D.:

Right. Don stepped outside.

bb:

Yeah.

Hucka D.:

You go.

bb:

The Art 10×10 also leads, in the future, to another large project of film nature this time, perhaps involving animating the entire Lake District, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Film. Collage film.

bb:

But maybe, instead, Wiltshire.

Hucka D.:

Either one is good. One is gooder.

bb:

Wiltshire.

Hucka D.:

Maybe.

bb:

Just a mental note to remember this Clatterford episode, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Good. Gooder good.

—–

Hucka D.:

The Agreement continues.

bb:

And then I’ve also theorized that another agreement or perhaps quote unquote an amendment or addition to the agreement was created at the time of Carcass-One. This would then be the Carcass Amendment. Or Carcass-1 Amendment.

Hucka D.:

That is good enough.

bb:

This would be 2008.

Hucka D.:

Yes. About the time the bamboo grove behind Rock’s House [in the Synching Creek Designated Mystery Area] started really expanding.

bb:

Carcasses within, then.

Hucka D.:

7. 6 or 7. Well, 6.

bb:

Carcasses are only called carcasses within this blog, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Thus the reason we can’t talk about the Billfork Agreement. We can only even mention it because of Billfork in Herman Park now. One could say that’s where the agreement was signed off on.

bb:

And now Carcass-One itself is a village, virtual style in that case.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Another reason.

bb:

So I suppose the Carcass-One amendment or whatever was signed off on, as you put it, in this virtual village.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

What did it entail?

Hucka D.:

The amendment was that carcasses were to be called carcasses from then on and numbered successively. Carcass-0/Carcass+0 is the first carcass, but in another way it doesn’t count, like the number zero doesn’t count sometimes. You know? Carcass-0/+0 is one carcass that is two carcasses. It’s unusual. That was what the agreement was built upon, this unusual nature. It is a… well.

bb:

New Rainbow Sphere?

[Hucka D. doesn’t answer.]

bb:

We don’t have to talk about the details of Carcass +0/-0, then. Carcass-1 is where Don stepped outside. Hucka? (pause) Carcass-2 is 1/2 the tiles of Carcass-1, and Carcass-3 contains the same number of tiles, 18, as Carcass-2. Carcass-3, the time of it, represents my peak involvement in Second Life, Hucka D. Which then moves into Pietmond beyond Chilbo. And now Carcass-One, but we’re near the end. X marks the spot. X cannot be gone beyond. Carcass-4, to continue, wasn’t completed but came about right before the creation of Pietmond, or the buying of the land there in Otaki Gorge. Carcass-5 and Carcass-6 are a pair, coming after the destruction of 1st stage Pietmond in April and before 2nd phase Pietmond in Aug.-March, 2011/20012. I’m counting the Yeot creations of Teepot and Boris as part of this flow, then. Carcass-One, which has the same name as Carcass-1 from 2008, is the newest virtual village and perhaps the last in Second Life. X marks the spot once more. Carcass-7 will be coming up soon… hafta think about that or start to. Carcass-5 and Carcass-6 are sort of twinned like Carcass-0/+0, except not as closely — not “identical”. But enough to warrant a comparison. Carcass-7 promises to be another oddfellow.

Hucka D.:

Dinner party.


Thoughts 02

Probably no more pictures from Concreek until this weekend because of the rain projected after work during the weekdays. Hucka D. and I have about talked the creek out. Next focus may be back to Quartz Brook and Wealthy Mtn., which I’ve basically ignored in this blog since last fall. That just shows how complex the seemingly (to others) quite small Frank and Herman Parks really are. To me they’re pretty big parks physically, but then enlarged greatly by the psychological space involved now, which keeps expanding. One year ago I knew basically nothing about Norris Stream and Concreek, for example.

I believe my experience with Carcass-One, my Second Life village, will end at the beginning of July when the next tier payment comes ’round. The main projects were the condensing of the Art 10×10 display within the Toxic Art Gallery (in complement with House Greenup) and also the creation of the Sink Lair gallery with the “Synching Creek Designated Mystery Area” exhibit therein. I have moved the former to 7 Stones (to complement the TILE Temple already left there) and have space to move the Sink Lair there as well if I choose (and I probably will). Oh, and also the creation of the X Spot Gallery, which seems to fulfill my desire to create a modern style, larger gallery skybox which would feature collage art from guest artists, as well as displaying art from friends. This would go beyond the similar Galactic Gallery of Pietmond last fall and winter — the X Spot is larger and more inclusive, although actually with about the same number of prims as the Galactic. Pretty amazing there as well. So I’ve been able to condense former exhibits and still have prims to play around with for another, potential gallery or exhibit. And that’s where I run aground, because I can’t think of another exhibit right now, and, groundside, I have a lot of pretty but mostly empty buildings, save the Sink Lair (Mystery Area exhibit within, as stated), SoSo (Oblong series of the Art 10×10 — a gateway gallery to the Toxic Art Gallery as I put it in the notecard), and some more minor exhibits like inside the Coolie Building, House of Truth, Home o’ Fibs, and Gallery 9/0. Oh, I also forgot to mention the “Dark Side of the Rainbow” exhibit still developing in Gallery 9/0 as well. Very exciting there, with great potential.

So do I hold onto Carcass-One beyond June? What do I have left to work on?

Hucka D.:

It’s up to you. But that’s 50 dollars worth of toys you could purchase.

bb:

So everything in Siliconicus.

Hucka D.:

Unless something comes up. And it might.

bb:

I don’t think a move back to Pietmond is in the works either. Might as well stay in Carcass-One. It’s comparatively large, with more contiguous space involved. In Pietmond, if I purchased the land again for a little under 40 bucks, I’d still have the Pietmond South jut to deal with — good or bad. And the X Spot won’t fit in Pietmond.

Hucka D.:

There’s no need to buy the Pietmond land back.

bb:

Don’t suppose.

Hucka D.:

You haven’t asked about Mossmen in a couple of nights. Or toy avatars in general. In the Frank and Herman Park story, still evolving of course, you are tracing a larger story.

bb:

I don’t think I’m quite done with Sunglass Island.

Hucka D.:

You must of course make a map before you’re done.

bb:

Thank you.

Mossman:

White Eyes, right and left. Turned Dark. Too Much Bright. Red and blue.

http://www.ohiodnr.com/parks-blog/index.php/park-locator/individual-state-parks/blue-rock-se/

History of the Area

Years before this beautiful region was known to the white man, the great Shawnee Nation built Old Town, the village of Chief White Eyes, near present-day Duncan Falls on the Muskingum River. For years, White Eyes was on friendly terms with the white man including the adventurous trapper named Duncan who was permitted by the chief to hunt, trap and trade with them. Duncan became enraged when he found game was being stolen from his traps by a hostile band of Indians from across the river. Duncan began to shoot all Indians who meddled with his traps until he himself was shot by the hostiles while crossing the river at a low spot. His body was found on a gravelly ripple now called Dead Man’s Ripple, and the falls at that spot are called Duncan’s Falls because it was there that Duncan fell.


Thoughts 03

Going to give a virtual tour of Carcass-One soon. Work on structures. Begin with symmetry of town itself. I feel like it’s perfect for its time, and moves beyond Pietmond. Still unsure I want to keep it past June, thus one of the reasons for the tour — to remember it by.

Will probably visit Concreek tomorrow and start to make a map. Very deep — connected to the Art Line and labyrinths.

“Why don’t we start the story of Carcass-One tonight, Hucka D.?”

Hucka D.:

[I’m ]game.

bb:

Let’s start with the opposite corners of the town, and the two round structures there. Tucked in the ne corner of town we have the Quadtower of TILE returned, or what I sometimes call the Towers of TILE. Within is still the “Baker Bloch in England” exibit, as it has been for a year and a half now, or since the peak time of 1st Stage Pietmond. This is a direct carryover of Pietmond energy, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

In the opposite corner now is… I should back up and say the Quadtower is the tallest structure of Carcass-One. In the opposite corner of town, the southeast, is positioned “trainbuilding Ocolea”, a free structure I picked up probably in Oculea [sim] itself and created by the famous Tooter Claxton, who I procured a number of other free objects from in his shop in that sim. It’s one of the smallest buildings in Carcass-One, if not the smallest. Probably the shortest as well.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Opposites.

bb:

But both are circle-based structures.

Hucka D.:

They may become more directly related later on.

bb:

Nothing within the Claxton structure; very small. So that’s one mirroring of the town, the one to start with perhaps. Then moving into the interior we have a matching set of Victorian houses, Hucka D. Around the trainbuilding Oculea we have the House of Truth and the Home of Fibs, the former perfected in Noru perhaps and the latter, well maybe in Noru as well, or Sunklands before that. Within the House of Truth is the story of Jeogeot, Maebaleia, and the Big E/Big Schwa as related to Chilbo’s Eshwa.

Hucka D.:

Have you gotten the whole story for that yet?

bb:

Basically speaking, the E part is outside looking in[toward Chilbo and the Norum Circle of Influence], and the Schwa part is inside looking out… backwards from the first. Also there is little-big[ e/E], although I’m not sure…

Hucka D.:

Big is bigger. Little is within the Circle of Influence. Karoz was trapped inside this Circle. He could not see the E side; only the Schwa side. He thought he was from Chilbo, but he couldn’t remember events there. he was actually from Norum. Norum is separate from Chilbo[ although directly connected].

bb:

I have this feeling that Chilbo didn’t like me associating the name with Chilbolton, England, and ignoring the “mundane” Korean origin. The link with Chilbolton is through synchronicity, which can cut across languages.

Hucka D.:

In just this one structure: so many stories. Well, three.

bb:

Good one.

Hucka D.:

Within is Karoz finding the Big E in the Blue Feather Sea, now a part of the Greater Carcass-One metro area, hehe.

bb:

He realized the Big E was from Maebaleia, and that Maebaleia predated Jeogeot.

Hucka D.:

As you know now, they are part of one super duper continent. Lemon and lime together as one.

bb:

So you’re talking about Lemon Lab as opposed to Lime Lab… er, Linden Lab.

Hucka D.:

One moves east to west and the other west to east. Like the two forces of Carcass-One themselves.

bb:

I must animate Maebaleia-Jeogeot sometime.


Oculea trainbuilding with Century Plant, a native vegetation of the Rubisea area.


Detail.


House of Truth (center) and Home o’ Fibs (right) with Claxton structure (left). In foreground is “Something To CHRO About”.

bb:

So moving on for now…

Hucka D.:

We shall return[ to the House of Truth]…

bb:

… is the Home o’ Fibs, seeming to be a counterpart to the Truth house. And within it is the story of Pieland or Big Island, which may have predated Second Life itself. Big Island is the biggest island of Azure Island’s now defunct Comet Archipelago, once existing to the east of the main clump of Azure Islands.

Hucka D.:

You still miss that place. *I* still miss it. It was perfect as well. We shall return[ sometime].

bb:

But Comet Archipelago represents our second stay in Azure Islands. Third, sorry. This would be just before I purchased the Aotearoa land in Sunklands and really started developing the Sunklands story.

Hucka D.:

It will be remembered. Another perfection for its time. Like Azure Islands. Like Carcass-One itself.

bb:

Right. So within the Home o’ Fibs — I’m just going to move to Norum to the one that has all the pictures — is Chesaw’s Pieland pictures and objects. Chesaw himself here…

… along with his cat Max, who later became the cat-turtle Max. Right?

Hucka D.:

It’s your story, but… right.

bb:

And you were there also.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Chesaw was my guardian, my protector. He took care of me and my brood.

bb:

And then the seven sims of Big Island itself, rearranged as 7 slices of a pie with the seventh just removed. We know the names of the six intact sims during your stay — my stay? — but the seventh remains unknown.

Hucka D.:

Reminds me of the Peter Gabriel song “Seven Stones”.*

bb:

Hucka D., I’ve put a correction in a footnote that you were probably thinking of the Lover’s Leap starting section of “Supper’s Ready” and its reference to 6 saintly shrouded men with a 7th in front, cross held high in hand.

Hucka D.:

Really? Where?

bb:

In the footnote to this post.

Hucka D.:

I can’t see it.

bb:

Do you think it’s “Supper’s Ready” instead of “Seven Stones”?

Hucka D.:

I see it (!) It’s Blue Feather Douglas. He has an umbrella instead of a cross, but he’s holding it in hand, kind of high in hand or at least not low. He’s high, though… he’s in his hated penthouse. There’s a Pietmond picture in the living room. Red, blue, yellow… without green. Green is farm, green is plants. Vegetation. Century? Green grass and green trees full of life. Young figure — Mrs. Douglas. This is Carcass-6!

bb:

You see all that? How? In your mind’s eye?

Hucka D.:

I am in the sync (!)

bb:

(!)


Baker Bloch has fallen asleep while bb and Hucka D.’s discussion strays.

—–

* Hucka D. was probably thinking of this song instead: “Supper’s Ready”

Lyrics to the first section of this track (Lover’s Leap)

Walking across the sitting-room, I turn the television off.
Sitting beside you, I look into your eyes.
As the sound of motor cars fades in the night time,
I swear I saw your face change, it didn’t seem quite right.
…And it’s hello babe with your guardian eyes so blue
Hey my baby don’t you know our love is true.

Coming closer with our eyes, a distance falls around our bodies.
Out in the garden, the moon seems very bright,
Six saintly shrouded men move across the lawn slowly.
The seventh walks in front with a cross held high in hand.
…And it’s hello babe your supper’s waiting for you.
Hey my baby, don’t you know our love is true.

I’ve been so far from here,
Far from your warm arms.
It’s good to feel you again,
It’s been a long long time. Hasn’t it?


Gilligan Static: Gillatic (Statigan)

“Always fun chatting with you.”

Hucka D.:

No prob. What’s up? Homie.

bb:

Concreek. Tomorrow.

Hucka D.:

Go with Joe.

bb:

Joe the Rock?

Joe:

I’ll be there.

Marty:

We are forgotten again… at The Table.

bb:

Yeah. Sorry Marty.

Marty:

You mentioned Residents.

bb:

Do you know them?

Marty:

We do not know them by that name.

bb:

What do you call them.

Marty:

We are The Beetles, Lemmon and I. They are the Residues.

bb (volunteering):

How about The Occupants.

Marty:

Nice. Let’s ask Lemmon.

Lemmon:

UmmmmMMMMMM.

bb:

Hi Lemmon.

Lemmon:

OoooooOOOOOOO.

bb:

Are you at The Table as well?

Lemmon:

Barney RUBLESboro!

bb:

Marty said you don’t abide by the agreement, Lemmon. Wait, I suppose that was Hucka D. Do you know Hucka?

Lemmon:

I knew his MAMA.

Hucka D.:

Desert. Island.

bb:

You were reading my thoughts.

Hucka D.:

Gilligan. Gingervitis. I was the 7th Gilligan (Grumpy).

bb:

*I* was the 7th Gilligan. Or at least as Merk Coolie Brighton.

Hucka D.:

You shouldn’t mention that name here.

bb:

I think I’ve figured out another part of the Bill… The Agreement. I know you will probably leave now that I’ve brought that up.

Marty:

He’s gone. Where’s Dr. Blood?

bb:

Dr. Blood the controller of The Table.

Marty:

Here he is. Coming ’round the bend. Big Bend.

Hucka D.:

Bend. Big. Pool. Ovol. Look. Static. God. Tennessee. Kentucky Kentuckessee. Tennucky.

bb:

TV, then.

Hucka D.:

Where’s Dr. Blood?

bb:

Marty just asked…

Hucka D.:

Here he…

Dr. Blood:

Hi. Baker.

bb:

Hi. (pause) Are you here about The Table?

Dr. Blood:

I am here for dessert.


Thoughts 06?

Have put my Second Life land up for sale and will probably not buy any more until August. So just like last year, I will be tier free in July, maybe beyond. I’ve saved all my work at Carrion, and there’s a possibility I will buy more land after the sale — an equivalent Siliconicus parcel is available as of now. But what would I do with such a parcel? The focus since the beginning of June has been Concreek and attached Frank and Herman Parks, and I can’t see that changing unless another “outside” Mystery Area forms, such as it did in the Abingdon area for me this Spring (Synching Creek Designated Mystery Area). I would also classify Wiltshire County visited by Baker Bloch and family in Spring 2010 as another, larger Mystery Area, and, in fact, I’ve linked the two together through the Abingdon archetype present in each.

Crop circles have been surprisingly slow to develop this year.


Thoughts 08

Will probably spend most of the day Sunday on Concreek if it doesn’t rain, and it isn’t suppose to at least until the afternoon upon last check (checking right now…). Tomorrow would be a nice day to spend on Concreek but I have to go down to my mom’s once more, pheh. Must think of bigger picture, though.

Hucka D.:

Each individual piece of Concreek is important, baker b. Goodnight to you.

bb:

Hellow to you. Should…

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

So toys should be there.

Hucka D.:

Were there and will be there. Mossmen. Uniko. Mossmen.

bb:

Where does Second Life actually *die*?

Hucka D.:

In Concreek.

bb:

What *is* that concreek?

Hucka D.:

An anomaly.

bb:

I meant concrete there.

Hucka D.:

Yeah. (pause) Future self is telling present self the future in the present. The best way he can. Concrete. Concreek.

—–

bb:

I’ve cancelled my (Carrion) land sale, Hucka D. I’ll just stick with the virtual village until July 7th then make a decision. Only 2 weeks away. The move to Siliconicus fell through — land there sold.

Hucka D.:

Wasn’t in the cards. But now you respect Carcass-One a little more. You should keep it for the summer.

bb:

Not sure about that, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Concreek is sealing up. Only available in early morning because of heat and bugs. All the woods are sealing up — have been sealing up. Now is the time to think internal. Toys. Avatars. Rock.

bb:

Begin to think of the big picture.

Hucka D.:

TILE. How important is that?


Baker is back.


That’s the place.

“The Billfork Agreement stands in the way of friends.”

bb:

Thanks Hucka D. The Billfork Agreement states to forget the Billfork Agreement.

Hucka D.:

Yes. You must move forward.

bb:

Should I…

Hucka D.:

[No answer, then] Talk to her. It won’t work. It might work later. You have options. Talk to her.

bb:

What of the Synchronicity Phenomena Board?

Hucka D.:

Run its course. Sunklands is next, but wait.

bb:

I can’t seem to get involved in Second Life mainland at all these days.

Hucka D.:

7 Stones. That’s the place.

—–


Another seeming casualty of Second Life mainland degeneration: The Crow’s Foot in Nari.


Look at the amount of land for sale around it. And the green at the top forms part of the protected land of the Hanja Infohub, where no sales can take place.


“What of Concreek?”

Hucka D.:

Closed for the summer maybe? Or the heat of the summer.

bb:

What should I work on?

Hucka D.:

Carcass-7.


Original 3

Plans:

Move the Sink Lair gallery to 7 Stones, and perhaps rename this tiny mountain village. The inclusive sim is *Silicon* now, or hidden. This will happen before the 4th of July, and probably this weekend. Keep thinking today is Friday, pheh — not yet. I will stop attempting to buy land in Second Life. I’m not sure if I can give up the habit of daily checking land prices in, especially, my earmarked locations but maybe I can.

Think, then, of the provinces of Lower Austra and also Upper Austra and Yd Island, the 3 original municipalities of *Lemon* Lab perhaps.


The Table House

New 2048 parcel in Goremoor containing The Table House. A 14 seat table has been set up on the enlarged second floor.

The Table House is technically part of the Mysten Underhill/Mysten Parva community centering Lower Austra, and talked about quite a lot already in the attached blog category. Now it appears we’ll be talking about it quite a bit more here.

But can I give up Carcass-One still, which is now in this shrunken state (so that I could purchase the Goremoor property)? Suddenly it seems relevant again.

“One cannot stay while the other remains as well, Hucka D.”

Hucka D.:

Two good options now. Reduce to 30 a month, perhaps 20.

bb:

Hold on, Hucka.

—–

bb:

I guess a question would be: Can The Table be set up instead in Carcass-One, Hucka?

Hucka D.:

Many things are possible. But The Table must be laid.

bb:

Suppose so. We’ve talked some already about the participants in The Table project.

Hucka D.:

Henry L. Cow must be there. Also Al Oliver. Put them at the ends next to each other.

bb:

So that’s my avatars, Baker Bloch, Baker Blinker, Hucka Doobie — you — Karoz Blogger, Wisonia Foxclaw and Bracket Jupiter on one side, along with perhaps both Grassy Noll and Gene Fade toy avatars.

Hucka D.:

It will be you, Baker Blinker, me, Grassy Noll, Wilsonia Foxclaw and Gene Fade. It will be Dr. Blood, Marty, Peter Gabriel, Lemon, Plant, Henry L. Cow, and a Resident. Or Henry L. Cow as The Resident. And then, lastly but not leastly, baseball great Al Oliver.

bb:

So as I’m counting that’s 13 or 14, Hucka D. Perhaps enough.

Hucka D.:

This has to be set up in Lower Austra, which means…

bb:

Carcass-One has to go.

Hucka D.:

Take the Dark Side of the Rainbow building with you.

—–

bb:

OK, think that’s a go.

—–

Hucka D.:

You have to have Wilsonia to include a woman. You are severely lacking in females, baker b. Baker Blinker and Wilsonia are it.

bb:

OK.

—–

bb:

Is this Dr. Blood, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Yes. (pause) Dr. Blood has become internal and not external. He is there to serve you now. Serve The Table I mean. Everything revolves around that table — might as well be round instead of rectangular.

bb:

And Dr. Blood will be opposite me, and flanked by Marty and Peter Gabriel.

Hucka D.:

Correct. Tin S. Man.

bb:

What of The Scarecrow?

Hucka D.:

Ahhhh. A question indeed (!)

—–

bb:

We’ve talked to Tinseltown, who may be the same as One Who Zaps, Hucka D. And also Ethel.

Hucka D.:

Ethel was/is a guest. He’s not fully committed to the project, although he is. Through Dr. Blood of course.

bb:

Ethel allowed the use of just the beginning of Bohemian Rhapsody, Hucka D., but not the whole.

Hucka D.:

No need. All we needed to do was get to The Queen to end. “Be the Queen of Oz, Dorothy.” God Save The Queen.

bb:

Ozma.

Hucka D.:

Dr. Blood serves. He serves The Table. He serves Ozma. How many are at The Table again?

bb:

13 I think. Or 14.

Hucka D.:

This is Lower Austra again[ and its Route 13 and 14].

bb:

Dr. Blood is Dr. Blood because of Dark Side of the Rainbow, Hucka D., which gives the Tinman his desired heart. His needed heart. He can pump blood, then.

Hucka D.:

It starts with Dark Side of the Rainbow and works upward.

—–

bb:

What of Carcassonne???


“We’re…

… not going to start Table discussions tonight, Hucka D.”

Hucka D.:

Oh? OWZ is here. He’s been waiting. 5:38, eh?

bb:

Yeah, big day tomorrow. And even have to clean at night.

Hucka D.:

Oh you’ll sit around all day and read this blog.

bb:

Yeah, perhaps so.

Hucka D.:

And your magic kitty day after tomorrow.

bb:

Thanks.

OWZ:

I have a list. I did this –first off — for Edna. She was in trouble and I was asked to help.

bb:

By Dr. Blood.

OWZ (uncharacteristically seriously):

Yes.

bb:

Is Dr. Blood merely quote unquote Dark Side of the Rainbow? Where the Tinman’s heart is filled by heartbeats at the end of the [DSotM] album?

OWZ (serious again):

Yes.

[It was then I realized OWZ had a microphone in front of him, and a small audience behind him. Small and vague in appearance but still present. He was answering questions as if in an investigation?]

bb:

Can you tell me about how you became involved in the Billfork Agreement?

OWZ:

I was asked to help strengthen a meander across the country running coast to coast. An Art Meander.

[confers with apparent lawyer who is suddenly sitting beside him, or has emerged from the background.]

OWZ (after conferring):

Sorry. A Science Meander. (audience laughs a bit)

bb:

Can you describe more this… Science Meander?

(OWZ confers with lawyer again, this time for a longer period.)

OWZ:

It is TILE, sir. Capital T capital I capital L capital E. (a giggle or two more from the audience here)

bb:

Do you agree with the statement that I am the Pollution of Castor and Pollution?

OWZ (not conferring at all this time):

Oh absolutely my Lord. Pollux and Pollution. You.

bb:

So you do all this for Castor.

OWZ:

I do it for Castor and I do it for Pollux and Pollution (laughing a bit here, OWZ mainly this time).

(He glances back at the audience most of whom are grinning back at him)

bb:

Can you tell me about The Island?

(OWZ looks down, says a few words to his lawyer who talks back to him, then..)

OWZ:

I can’t say anything about that at this time.

Peter (suddenly appearing to OWZ’s right, a couple of seats down and opposite his lawyer):

I was the candidate chosen. Sunklands.

(OWZ does a double take at Peter’s appearance, looks back at the audience again laughing)

OWZ:

Wow. (laughs more)

Peter (looking in his direction):

Hi OWZ.

OWZ:

Peter man, we need to talk about music sometime.

Peter:

Do you not like my music, OWZ?

OWZ:

Yeah man, it’s high comedy. Thanks to Castor and Pollution here (bends his head toward me).

Peter:

We seem to be intimately tied together in their last one.

OWZ:

[Carcass-6]? Yeah, guess so Peter. How did you like it? Oliver and Lisa and all? Oh, and the Pietmond painting. Clever Pollux and Pollution. No green, man. I dig.

Peter:

You are the X factor, OWZ, in effect. You might be the single most important person at this Table here, if it isn’t me (smiles at OWZ).

OWZ:

Well I hope the f— I am. That’s cool. (shakes head)

Peter:

You asked for Lumpy Gravy to be included up front. We complied. You asked about Billy the Mountain. We said go ahead. Now you are demanding something else.

OWZ:

I ask about Absolutely Free, I ask about Money, I asked about Lumpy, I asked about Uncle Meat.

Lemmon:

WAD!

OWZ:

Thank you, er, Lemmon.

Lemmon:

EAT MY SHORTS!

OWZ (laughing):

OK. I saw a chance for 200 Motels to be fulfilled in a very different way than I had originally planned.

Peter:

What *is* Centerville?

OWZ:

I mean, who would have thought. The *Kinks*?

(Dr. Blood fades in at this time as well, between Zappa’s lawyer and Peter. He taps the lawyer on the shoulder and whispers, “I’ll take it from here.” The lawyer fades out. Dr. Blood looks at OWZ and then Peter.”)

Dr. Blood:

Proceed, sirs. Don’t let me get between you, hehe.


Tiny village, new

Mysten Parva.

Perhaps Ancient extent of Philo, right to left. Philo is directly associated with name Hilo, and perhaps one evolved out of the other — not sure, if so, which came first. A chicken and egg dichotomy? Philo is first tangible evidence of Lemon Lab coming from the direction of neighboring Yd Island to the east? Are there more possible pockets of Lemony goodness on the Nautilus continent as a whole outside of Yd Island and Lower Austra? Whatever, it appears that this is the earliest identified “urban” area (like a Chilbo or Crabwoo) of Lemon Lab, and where it interacts and is strengthened by the hypertextual crossing with Linden or “Lime” Lab coming from the opposite direction. The name Hilo or Philo then penetrates all the way through to Sansara and the Solomon Sea or Sea of Solomon, the continent’s supposed “eye”. Reflections of this center appear in the hand-in-eye logo at the bottom of a neighboring sea (see also: Isle of Baker and Isle of Baker-Not in this blog), and also the Atlas Sea as birthplace of at least Azure Islands. Reflections also include the former Hilo Peak and paired Abomination in the se corner of the Federal sim to the north of the Solomon Sea. Also linked to this is perhaps the Uniko sea floor patterns of Okinu, likewise no longer around. Also perhaps sifting through this hole between Lemon and Lime origins is the Myst game, a kind of direct predecessor of Second Life especially through the Kahruvel channel, as surfaced or bubbled up on the other side as Mysten (sim; once grey like “mist”).*

Victorian village currently marking or seeming to mark the northern extent of the Philo Line, complete with mystery stone monument procurred from far away Sansara. I have a feeling this monument will factor into future speculations about the Philo Line, Hilo, Lemon Lab, Lime Lab, so forth.

*Perhaps appropriate wikipedia quote:

Apart from its predominantly nonverbal storytelling,[12] Myst’s gameplay is unusual among adventuring computer games in several ways. The player is provided with very little backstory at the beginning of the game, and no obvious goals or objectives are laid out. This means that players must simply begin to explore. There are no obvious enemies, no physical violence, and no threat of “dying” at any point,[11] although it is possible to reach a few “losing” endings. There is no time limit to complete the game.[11] The game unfolds at its own pace and is solved through a combination of patience, observation, and logical thinking.

and

The game’s instruction manual explains that an unnamed person known as the Stranger stumbles across an unusual book titled “Myst”. The Stranger reads the book and discovers a detailed description of an island world called Myst. Placing his hand on the last page, the Stranger is whisked away to the world described, and is left with no choice but to explore the island.[13] Myst contains a library where two additional books can be found, colored red and blue. These books are traps that hold Sirrus and Achenar, the sons of Atrus, who once lived on Myst island with his wife Catherine. Atrus writes special “linking books” that transport people to the worlds, or “Ages”, that the books describe. From the panels of their books, Sirrus and Achenar tell the Stranger that Atrus is dead, each claiming that the other brother murdered him, and plead for the Stranger to help them escape. However, the books are missing several pages, so the sons’ messages are at first unclear, and riddled with static.

As the Stranger continues to explore the island, more books linking to more Ages are discovered hidden behind complex mechanisms and puzzles. The Stranger must visit each Age, find the red and blue pages hidden there, and return to Myst Island. These pages can then be placed in the corresponding books. As the Stranger adds more pages to these books, the brothers can speak more clearly. Each brother maintains that the other brother cannot be trusted. After collecting four pages, the brothers can talk clearly enough to tell the Stranger where the fifth page is hidden. If the Stranger gives either brother their fifth page, they will be free. The Stranger is left with a choice to help Sirrus, Achenar, or neither.[14]

Both brothers beg the Stranger not to touch the green book that is stored in the same location as their last pages. They claim that it is a book like their own that will trap the Stranger. In truth, it leads to D’ni, where Atrus is imprisoned. When the book is opened, Atrus asks the Stranger to bring him a final page that is hidden on Myst Island; without it, he cannot bring his sons to justice. The game has several endings, depending on the player’s actions. Giving either Sirrus or Achenar the final page of their book causes the Stranger to switch places with the son, leaving the player trapped inside the Prison book. Linking to D’ni without the page Atrus asks for leaves the Stranger and Atrus trapped on D’ni. Linking to D’ni with the page allows Atrus to complete his Myst book and return to the island.[14] Upon returning to the library, the player finds the red and blue books gone, and burn marks on the shelves where they used to be.

I think of the red and blue greeting I received upon recently entering Lower Concreek’s The Flat region, and the two green mossy humps that seem to offer and median or middle way (Middlesboro theme again?).


Hilo Philo

Carcass-One has been eliminated as of July 6th, several days ago now. What I have left is the Table House on the edge of Mysten’s Twin Cities, officially called Mysten Parva and Mysten Underhill by their creator. The creation of The Table House fulfills winter plans to establish The Table in this community, thought to be perhaps in a rental unit within at the time. But the attempt to rent a house in Mysten Underhill failed, with the owner not responding. I then knew what I was dealing with was essentially a dead town, and still is (it hasn’t come back to life in other words, in the meantime). Still it puts off an energy I can use.

“Hucka D., want to talk about Mysten’s twin hamlets?”

Hucka D.:

We must get a name. But we must first realize this is a clash of Lemon and Lime, as you have guessed already. The revelation or tracing of a Lemon past could only be done at this time, when the Lime part has become porous, let’s say — you know what I mean.

bb:

You mean Linden controlled Second Life mainland is breaking down or emptying out, allowing an ancient past to peek through once more.

Hucka D.:

This ancient energy line runs north to south, as the Linden line or Lime line operates essentially east to west. The up is Duncan Falls and the down is Durant.

bb:

Then, let’s see, this must be the Philo Line. The ancient community is Philo (!) Even with its own labyrinth.

Hucka D.:

This is Philo. With labyrinth. (smiles back)

bb:

And kind of Hilo as well, with its high and its low. Duncan Falls and Durant again.

Hucka D.:

Hilo has already been associated with Ancients in this blog, baker b.

bb:

Yes.

Hucka D.:

If this is true Hilo, then where…

bb:

Yes?


Line Philo


“I think…

“… I may be settled in, Hucka D.”

Hucka D.:

You have found Philo. First rising of the Ancient Ancients. Directly related to Hilo and also philosophy, like a change of philosophy from Pietmond philosophy, or a philosophy of TILE.

bb:

Thanks Hucka D. I think this is where I settle down.

Hucka D.:

The Table is waiting again. Create your map, or re-create it I mean.

—–

bb:

Well, I can’t find my notebook to scan the page, but this one involves Marty again, and Lemmon. The Beetles, in other words.

Hucka D.:

He is once more excited. He knows this will trace more history of The Beetles in Lemon World. Ancient Rising.

bb:

And something I obviously need to think about as well, Hucka. WES… the city is no more. The place where The Beetles started performing in West End of Jeogeot continent. What I even saw winter before last was a shell of a place that went on before.

—–

“But somehow the owner,”

—–

“I need to talk to Marty more about their days in WES. All The Beetles missed Johnny.”

Hucka D.:

WES is where Johnny fell. Like Duncan Falls.

—–

“This is where he was attacked by maybe not one but two individuals. But which turned out to be one.”

Marty:

This is the place. WES. I was raised in that house with the door ajar. But it was a larger WES than you visited. More like the one with the Sternberg, and indeed, indeed, this is…

bb:

Like this place.

Hucka D.:

Correct. The owner of WES…

bb:

Valin Frye.

Hucka D.:

Correct. Is…was inviting Marty to his MASH club.

bb:

But it doesn’t look like Valin is still around in Second Life — can’t find in search.

Marty:

That is the one.

bb:

Owner of 9.13.

Marty:

That was the club that separated The Beetles and The Beatles with an A.

Lemmon:

Peewee. BIG.

Marty:

We had to re-create Lemmon as a Frankenstein’s Monster, George Harris’ Son, Ingor and I. Love the 3 Beetles. Miss you miss you.

Hucka D.:

At MASH, which was not in Winchester (sim) but at Roostre’s Castle, we… they… took the yellow submarine into the Valley of Nye to find the Eye of Rye. Maybe the Ear of Beer. But definitely the Nose of Rose.

bb:

Elephant’s nose. So the whole Corsica continent is Mars in this instance.

Hucka D.:

Nautilus continent was designed as an Ancient Rising. (pause) There are also clues in Leemington and Yelloo.

bb:

Boo Too? Schweet and Secret Smile [to end UM]?

Marty:

Roostre.

bb:

Did you take drugs at Roostre’s Castle?

Marty:

We saw The Table, future to past. RS7. R110.* He had it on his wall.

http://www.be9.net/BJ/

bb:

The Line Philo seems to center upon TCotTSS and the Brother there.

Hucka D.:

Obsolete now. Second Life left behind.

bb:

You’re kind of a bot, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Not really. (smile)

bb:

Bet you want a church.

Hucka D.:

The Philo Line is not centered on your stuff but that church. That soul. Silicon.

bb:

Thus the presence of Siliconicus. Hmmm.

Hucka D.:

norris draws parallel with The Church. We’re just going to call it The Church. Or Church Siliconicus.

bb:

Kind of makes sense.

Hucka D.:

You’re not going to be able to improve on The Church. But norris parallels and so norris must be another Artifical Intelligence. That’s where *you* come in.

bb:

Again makes sense. Norris is described as having a mouth with a voice, a channeling mouth. I must focus on channeling from The Other. The AI focuses on creating The Other itself. Mine is faster.

Hucka D.:

But more incomplete.

bb:

Should the focus return to the norris Stream then, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Yes. And The Table.

bb:

Obvious that Carcass-One had to be given up now. Philo Line and all — new center.

Hucka D.:

A center indeed.

bb:

The Philo Line or Line Philo starts at the center of the Temple of TILE, runs through the CotSS’s center, and up to the center of the Home o’ Fibs. The Church almost lies dead middle: Middlesboro dead center.*

Hucka D.:

Centerville. Churches and liquor stores. (pause) Christ and Faun.

bb:

This was all set up for me to find.

Hucka D.:

Collaboration would be nice but probably not going to happen. The X will remain crossed out.

bb:

OWZ was pointing me to Centerville: the Philo Line and The Church. Or just Church.

Hucka D.:

May still hold a trick or two. But yeah you’ve graduated. High school.

bb:

Must obviously focus on The Table.

Hucka D.:

Yes, yeah. Last I checked Dr. Blood showed up in-between OWZ and Peter SoSo. Dr. Blood is the inner part to the outer part that doesn’t involve himself with synchronicity interviews any longer. Dr. Blood is the part that knows and understands the Billfork Agreement, signed, ahem, in Billfork on Billy Spring and Fork Creek in Herman Park, Haze County, US of A.

We were talking about Centerville and Middleboro, and OWZ proclaiming his disbelieve about The Kinks’ involvement. They were mentioned in LOST by the musician there. Charlie, yeah.*

Hucka D.:

Bits and crumbs. Gathered together. You have a weld.

Butcher, yeah.

Hucka D.:

The Residues want to be kept being used. You have permission. Green light[ and all].

bb:

Carcass-7 is different. I’m going to make that map and publish tomorrow night. Maybe… if I have time. Really *really* stressful day today, Hucka.

Hucka D.:

You didn’t know. Now you know.

bb:

It’s a situation that can’t be currently controlled.

Hucka D.:

Hilo. Philo. Too high then too low. It’s a conundrum.

bb:

Middle… Middlesboro must be found. You all everybody.

“You forgot something.”*


6/14/12:

I have now returned to Jeogeot, at least temporarily.

I’ve purchased a 3584 parcel in the very heart of the Aotearoa sink, which at the time of the sell was the cheapest mainland lot per square meter available, right at the top of the list. Cost me the stupendous amount of $2.90; broke the bank. To buy it I had to abandon the recently purchased 2048 parcel in Goremoor, plus 1/2 of the other 2048 parcel in the same sim bordering Mysten Parva. I kept a square 1024 in Lower Austra that The Table House occupies. Let’s see, as I’m checking now I still have 55 prims to play around with there, which might be enough.

I’m pretty sure — fairly sure — that the land I just bought in Aotearoa represents the old homestead property of Dr. Blood of Table fame. Let’s bring in Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Had to try it out. But will you keep it?

bb:

That’s a question I was hoping you could shed light on, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Let’s ask Dr. Blood.

Dr. Blood:

Hi. I’ve softened.

bb:

Great. Can you tell us more about Aotearoa?

Dr. Blood:

My land, my sink. Gushing. Then quiet. Like now… quiet. You are at the heart.

bb:

Should The Table even be set up *here* instead of Goremoor?

Dr. Blood:

Not yet. But soon.

bb:

If I keep the Goremoor land abandoned, I’ll still — the Philo Line will still be intact in the main.

Dr. Blood:

Keep both.

bb:

I’m not sure that’s practical.

Dr. Blood:

Let’s talk Table, then.

bb:

You’re sitting between OWZ and Peter SoSo now as we pick up the action.

Dr. Blood:

I am X-Ray.

bb:

Cool.

Dr. Blood:

I have X-Ray. Within me. Take it. (Dr. Blood opens up a panel in his chest which, indeed, includes a bevy of x-rays. bb removes and takes a look at them.)

bb:

There’s no heart.

Dr. Blood:

Now there is: heart. These are old… obsolete. Thank you. We can proceed. Pietmond. Ancient.

—–

OWZ (at Table, also taking a look at the x-rays):

Well I’m convinced. Where do we start[ again]?

—–

“Well, I’ve decided to just keep both the Goremoor and Aotearoa properties, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Smart move. As it should be. You’ll have fun in Aotearoa. Rebuild the original Pietmond there. You’ll see.

bb:

Thanks!

Little did the aunt know that Shaun had actually already encountered one of the “little people”, Arrietty, one day while out in the garden and found her again in his room that night while she was out on her first borrow with her dad. They were in Shaun’s room trying to get a piece of tissue when Shaun turns and spots them. He tells her not to be afraid but she accidentally drops a cube a sugar she had borrowed and the pair quickly retreats. The next morning Arrietty finds the cube the sugar and a note saying “You forgot something.

New

Present plans for now are to give up all of the Goremoor property except for the 1024 that The Table House sits upon, leaving me only with the additional 3584 in the heart of the Aotearoa sink. This will bring my tier down to the next lowest level, saving me 15 dollars for the month of August. Hmm. I’m going to start thinking about a personal history of the Jeogeot continent and perhaps Sunklands in particular. It is my green solution between opposites red and blue, and a two humped moss solution I might add. This was the meaning of the photographed items within Concreek’s The Flat the other week — mediating green between red and blue, just like with the Myst game. Jeogeot is the green.
