As usual on the weekends, I’m behind in writing text and ahead on photos. Tonight I may add more photos, knowing me.

So far, I would personally divide this blog into 3 parts, with perhaps a 4th part coming up. Roughly, part 1 is up to the entrance into Lemon World by Baker Bloch and Hucka D., or about the 1st month. This is marked by a focus on SL photos and explorations on the oldest mainland continent of Sansara. Part 2 deals more with rl explorations involving what I call CREEK, RIVER, and STREAM. But the main focus of Part 2 was the Hidalgo collage series, which will very soon be displayed in its entirety in the small, private Hidalgo Gallery on my property in AI. So all through part 2 I was working on the 10 collages of this series. Part 3 involves buying property and fixing up/collaging together disparate parts to create structures on this property, namely a ground house but also a skybox. This push is about through as well, I feel. At the same time that Baker Blinker was focused mainly on the house/skybox and the property in general, and also being friendly to the new neighbors, Baker Bloch was busy extensively exploring AI1 and also other AI’s (2,3,4,5,6). We also have the entrance of Hucka D. into the Bakers’ immediate family, who set up shop in a created basement room of the new house but was more out and about in the Otherland region and nearby spots.

Each of these 3 phases appear to have lasted about 1 month apiece.

So what will phase 4 bring, which I seem to be on the cusp of? Well, I’m not sure how much house development is left. I’m running out of prims for one thing, and want to keep some in reserve for creativity, perhaps some sculpture involving the CHRO series and perhaps other painting series I employed while an art student in college. Baker Blinker’s focus may partially shift back to the mainland, in formerly explored places like the “illegal” and very tiny Just Call Me Ernie Banks gallery, but I’m not totally sure yet. Baker Bloch certainly plans to explore more of AI1 and has started at the very bottom of AI and plans to move up thru 5, 4, 3, 2, and 1 quite soon, but he seems to be stuck, along with Hucka D. perhaps, at 5 — the bottom — for now. Hucka D. (Doobie) has found a new mate in Hurla Dontbee, but both the Bakers are unsure of their connections. Then to complicate further now we have T-Bonz and the Mmmmmm’s, who are currently exploring CREEK (TILE) in the real world. So what’s next? I think a partial shift back to the mainland will take place, and of an underwater variety. Maybe in the Atlas area? (place where owner of AI first worked). But I also could shift to map research or a/v synching again and out of SL altogether for a while at least.

The avatar I seem to be able to talk to directly most easily is Hucka D. for some reason, perhaps because he seems to be a direct extension of CNB (Charles Nelson Blinkerton, the artists who has been found to be faked in the meantime then more recently reinstated as “real” again by Hucka and the Bakers of SL). Let’s bring him in now to ask more questions.

Hi Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Hello baker b.

bb:

Do you happen to know of T-Bonz and the Mmmmmm’s? They’re exploring CREEK now in Real Life. They have currently set camp up at what I call Jonesborough. Hucka D.? He seems to have faded out again. Queer. Who else can I talk to?… CNB is gone now… the Bakers are not a possibility, really, I don’t suppose, since the 2 of them actually make up me… Maybe T-Bonz himself. T-Bonz, are you there? ?

Hucka D.:

I’m back. All I have to do is say [delete name] isn’t real and I fade in again. Queer.

bb:

Yeah, queer.

Hucka D.:

I’m ready to research Tronesis more. CHRO/ Blackbird. I wish to accompany Baker Blinker when/ if she returns to the mainlands. But I simply think she’ll be more in the skybox, and perhaps turning over more rezzing projects to Baker Bloch, even.

bb:

Has your camping trip to what you’re calling Verdigris started yet, Hucka?

Hucka D.:

We have found a good tent to use is all. Baker Bloch has tested it out at the location. We tried a pup tent and then a camper even… a trailor… but the large tent seemed to work best. He’s positioning it right on top of that green spot… takes up most of that spot. It is Verdigris. Green.

bb:

Do you know T-Bonz by chance? And his Mmmmmm’s?

Hucka D.:

We haven’t met.

bb:

T-Bonz favors the green Mmmmmm over the 2 red ones. They used a goodmobile to travel to Jonesborough on CREEK.

Hucka D.:

I don’t know what a goodmobile is.

bb;

It’s a vehicle for travel just like you have in SL.

Hucka D.:

I think you need to log in to see what your adventures will be for tonight, baker b.
