Hucka’s Letter, 2 June 30, 2008

Dear Bakers:

How quickly things change! I am not in Kentucky any longer but in Arkansas, and have settled in a bit at a place called Tyler Bend. Grassy Noll has joined me now in my new, Earthy adventures. He couldn’t be Salad Bar Jack forever, he says… needed a change as well. I don’t know if you realized it but it escaped me that Verdy, in the production of Salad Bar Jack In The River Of TILE, was also played by Grassy Noll. Of course, (I thought when finding this out from Grassy the other evening) he really has two arms after all! Interestingly, we are now camped out in a tent very similar to the one we used in the volcano sim, Baker Bloch, where Verdy supposedly transitioned from RL Cave of The Alphabet to SL “green spot” in one of the many gorges leading to the central volcano of the Dante sim. But it is here, on Tyler Bend synchily positioned between an Arnold Bend to the west and a Lane Bend to the east, that I believe we will establish our first Earthy Temple of TILE. Or Tyle. Or maybe on Cash Bend just further to the east. Or on Lane Bend nearer the town of Gilbert. Or perhaps even on Arnold Bend. But here’s where it starts Mr. Bloch and Ms. Blinker — on Cash, Arnold, Tyler, or Lane Bend. Or some combination thereof. A connection to The Jug in Tyler County, West Virginia featured in the Booker T. interview re SID’s 1st Oz is highly anticipated.

We do not have solid plans for what this “temple” will look like. In the meantime, Grassy, while we sit on the banks of the protected, all-natural Buffalo River, has shared many interesting stories about his adventures and movies, including one that was currently in production, before Grassy’s leave of absense, called Salad Bar Jack And The Spill Over Drink Lake Dam. He says now this fall has been fulfilled in a new way.

We scout more tomorrow. I’ll keep you abreast of transpirings.

Yours in luv,
Hucka D.

Dear Bakers:

Thank you for providing me the link to the “Love Makes The Maps Go Round” post from your old fghe board. I am assembling a map almost as we speak. I am camped out in an abandoned cabin in the woods here. I am positive Cub Run Cave resonates directly with the 1st beehive I created in Cub, and is a key to generating the 4th. Cub Run may not be over, just shifted. Great moment of clarity when I exited the cave’s mouth. I now know about Hurla Dontbee. I am (in) Hart. I miss u both greatly.

With love and deepest appreciation,
Hucka D.

TILE Talk, 2

“You should seriously think about revealing [delete name] and [delete name] Baker Bloch. You and Ms. Blinker together, that is.”

Baker Bloch:

I’m still not sure that’s the direction to go.

Hucka D.:

Let’s review, then. Baker Blinker has a curse upon her. When the curse is lifted she will be revealed as who she really is. Part of the lifting of the curse could involve revealing [delete names]. As yours collectively, I mean. (pause) SID’s 1st Oz is not the only TILE, or Tyle.

Baker Bloch:

I am not so sure about that Hucka. But thank you for not invoking that other name.

Hucka D.:

[Delete name].

Baker Bloch:

Yes. The lemon tree at the center of the temple is obviously connected to Lemon World, and the circle of the rocks seem very similar. If you count the stone colored chairs surrounding the tree, that would be perhaps 11 objects? Anyway I’ll have to count again.

Hucka D.:

Let’s count them now.

Baker Bloch:

Well ok, alright.

(Baker b. logs onto SL as Baker Bloch. He’s already in the temple, on Floor 1. It’s nighttime, Baker Bloch’s favorite time in SL. Soon he is in the central square staring at the tree and the rocks and peering above the tree up to the ever-spinning cube of TILE/Tyle at the top.)

Baker Bloch:

If you count the transporter as well I’m counting 11 objects around the tree, Hucka D. So this must be related to the rock circle where I manifested Lemon World.

Hucka D.:

We manifested it together. Climb the tree.

Baker Bloch:

What? I don’t think it will hold me Hucka.

Hucka D.:

Climb the tree and enter the cube, the block, Mr. Bloch.

Baker Bloch:

Even if I could climb the tree, which I don’t think I can, I’m too big to get into that cube.

Hucka D.:

You are already in the cube. Ascend the tree.

Baker Bloch:

I’m not going to do it.

Hucka D.:

You will be insane within the month if you do not ascend.

Baker Bloch:

Huh? Insane? Maybe you’re the insane one Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Ok, what harm would it do just to see if you can climb it, like you climbed up the plane loader before. Remember?

Baker Bloch:

I hesitated then as well. You went headfirst. Come to think of it — you go first.

Hucka D.:

I’m already in Baker Bloch. Where do you think I am?

Baker Bloch:

No Earthly idea Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Guess.

(Baker Bloch did not say the name that came immediately to mind, which was Sirius. But the pieces began to fall into place anyway, and how Baker Blinker must become Alma I, Queen of AI5, in order to save it.)

Hucka D.:

My name is Rupert, and I am a royal ambassador from the 4th planet of the primary Sirius solar system.

*****

baker b. (slightly late on):

*I* see, the world tree has been recreated and the treehouse atop it. Hucka D. has become his primary self. Synchronicities have been shown in SL, perhaps for the first time (?) Kansas City Life.

 

TILE Talk June 23, 2008

“Hucka D., we’re sitting here in the middle of the Temple of TILE. Well, *you’re* sitting here and I’m kind of looking over your shoulder. You wish to talk about TILE and the 2 Oz synchronicities again.”

Hucka D.:

It’s about time.

bb:

Do you wish to ask me some questions?

Hucka D.:

Yes. (rustling noises as he pulls out notes again from his bee pouch). How does TILE start in Dark Side of the Rainbow? How does this relate to The Man and Charles Nelson Blinkerton and his Lemon World? What is.. I guess I’ve read several questions at once. Sorry.

bb:

Ok, let’s start then with Dark Side of the Rainbow.

Hucka D.:

Hidi and Lodi will show up soon. From Pluto.

bb:

Is that right. You mean here? In the Temple of TILE?

Hucka D.:

Could be. Maybe Hidalgo Gallery, maybe B_Hivia, maybe the Victorian house or its grounds. But somewhere.

bb:

Before we get started with the Rainbow Complex, then, let’s talk about Verdy and Verdigris. I don’t think that was ever cleared up in the blog.

Hucka D.:

Verdy is Verdi and also Hidi but also Heidi. She is named for the first toy avatar woman, the Eve to the Adam that is Lodi. She is olive colored, and he is orange. They are both circles, uniters of triangles and squares. They are wholly holy. In the movie they are Adam and Eve reborn out of the Cave of The Alphabet.

bb:

The plan was for you to interview me but I think the plan has changed. So Hucka… what is the Cave of The Alphabet, then? In Jonesborough?

Hucka D.:

It is the cave of all letters in one. TILE. ONE. They emerge from it. High and low united as one, like the Hidalgo Gallery now. We have saved Verdy, who is the same as Hidi now. United with Lodi. Pluto is now understood as the source planet. Pluto is Hades.

bb:

What about the Temple of the Velvet Underground and Lou Reed?

Hucka D.:

We have another temple now, do we not?

bb:

Are Hidi and Lodi the numbers 1 and 0 on that cube. High and low again, then?

Hucka D. (staring at cube):

Could be.

bb:

What is the relationship of the Circle of Letters to the Circle of Numbers?

Hucka D.:

The two should act as one. Reverse and forward. Numbers come first, then letters. Hidi and Lodi are born.

bb:

Are Hidi and Lodi, then, Numbers and Letters respectively?

Hucka D.:

No. They are the two sides of the alphabet united. A-M, and N-Z. Alpha-beta. First Man. The Man. Cube lost and then regained. Block.

bb:

Hucka, you have much knowledge that we, Blinks and Blochs, need. You have been Charles Nelson Blinkerton. You have become interested in Dark Side of the Rainbow. The flower was plucked “out there” from the old house and then you are “here”. This was a shift, like through a prism. The Body was given up but a new body, a Bee, was provided. You were Tiny, Little, but now you are massive and Mammoth through the beehives, this temple and, prior to it, B_Hivia. Bee is tiny, hives are mammoth.

Hucka D.:

I am now the tetractys. Numbers. Ten. Rural shifts to urban [comedy]. Bee Aurthur is contacted. Cub Run is done and over with. Winesap is next. TILE Creek. Hand Spring to Drink Lake. Jonesborough…

bb:

Talk about Jonesborough a bit more, the location of The Cave of The Alphabet.

Hucka D.:

The cave is the mouth that has the White Rock for a tongue. It speaks, or at least hums. Sometimes it even sings if it’s really happy, which is often. It is in a good setting.

bb:

How did T_Bonz know it could sing?

Hucka D.:

He had a map. Stolen from the Mmmmmm’s, who already had this information. The cave is legend to them.

bb:

But it looks like Verdy had knowledge of the cave as well.

Hucka D.:

He knew that T-Bonz would open the mouth of the cave with the singing, which is the same as opening the portal to SL and AI5 to create Verdigris. He melted into the landscape, Verdy did. That’s why it was green.

bb:

It’s not green on the refreshed maps [of AI5], though.

Hucka D.:

He returned. Lodi led him out of the labyrinth that is SL, like Baker Bloch was led out by Baker Blinker. Alma.

bb:

Will Baker Blinker become Alma I?

Hucka D. (not directly answering):

Noz is Baker Bloch. Not Oz but Noz. Like nose. (Hucka points to his own bee nose here).

bb:

Is the Temple of TILE the Big Windy? Or the Big Reedy?

Hucka D. (not directly answering again):

A cave always has a centerpoint. A portal. (Hucka D. stares at the rotating cube again, the center of this particular cave/temple.)

bb:

Is the Temple of TILE then connected to The Cave of The Alphabet at Jonesborough in some direct way?

Hucka D.:

This cave has an especially highlighted center, don’t you think?

bb:

Yes, it is very nice. The culmination of our collective experiences in SL so far. Will there be another beehive to come?

Hucka D.:

Yes. (pause) I want to enjoy this one a while, though.

bb:

I was going to ask something but…

Hucka D. (guessing the question):

Alma I is coming.

Loose Thoughts June 22, 2008

Filed under: Hucka D.,Temple of TILE — baker Blinker @ 8:55 am
Tags:

Well, a Sat. night with no Sunday obligations facing me, so I thought it might be a good time to do some type of blog review, again in a loose kind of way.

The Hidalgo Gallery sits on our property as a reminder of where we come from. Pre-Azure Island and Baker Bloch’s frustration re mainland hiking. I believe now it is the beginning or perhaps even toward the middle of the end for Azure Islands. But at the same time I wish to reinforce, if only to myself perhaps, and Edna as well, that I’m here to stay, and that I’ll, as they say, go down with the ship when it happens. I’m commited to the island I live on, with 2 properties in our possession. I had to sacrifice a bit in RL to get these properties together; only a little but some. It is a commitment. I’m not through with building… at all.

The blog will keep on now, as it is driven not exclusively by SL oriented events but by RL photography (centered now upon the adventures of Salad Bar Jack and crew), and also collage art and art in general. I consider the new “beehive” builds — Hucka’s 1st Beehive, then B_Hivia, and now the Temple of TILE — to all be true art pieces. I still do not consider myself much of a builder, with much, much to learn in that area if I continue forward. But I have a foothold now.

I also understand better how much Linden builds and objects still dominate Second Life, which may not totally be a good thing. Where are the new free 1 prim trees and plants, etc.? I haven’t run across many yet that aren’t Linden made. This could be a sign that things haven’t really progressed that much in SL, even since the beginning. Or speaks of the quality of Linden products… I don’t know, I’m still too new to SL even yet, although I technically probably wouldn’t be called a noob now (the collective appearance of my avatars may say otherwise!).

But I do know that the Temple of TILE represents another endpoint, and the beginning of a new phase. A switch back to creating pages devoted to SID’s 1st Oz is a possibility… perhaps the interviews will even take place within the new temple.

Let’s call in Hucka D. to confer on this, since I have more time to burn.

Hucka D.:

Hi baker b.

bb:

What’s up Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Not a lot.

bb:

Hucka D., would you perhaps be willing to interview me, baker b., in the new temple?

Hucka D.:

Of course I will if that’s what you want. If you think it’s a good idea. We have time. The lemon has manifested again. We must go inside again as well. Blochs and I. It is the only way to save him. Else he’ll go… he’ll…

bb:

Yes? He’ll go… what… crazy?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Insane. He’ll break down. I can see him as a sterno bum wandering the streets of “downtown” Azure Islands, in [delete name] sim. It could happen. It’s the lack of progression in this world currently. Take down a church and put up another Dark Lord mega-castle. We’re, collectively, not a religious entity, but still it disturbs a bit. Everyone seems to want to be a dark lord now, with a castle. Is this a good thing? It may not be a totally bad thing but it shows regression, perhaps, or decay. And I’m not a negative person.

bb:

How does the Temple of TILE come into play in all this?

Hucka D.:

The temple gives out positive energy to all who enter. It is light, not dark, although technically it is a mixture of the two, since there really is no light and dark beyond the weave of opposites. There is only ONE. There is also one hope for the island we live on. The energy must be cleared, and at a particular place.

bb:

Sirius?

(Hucka D. does not answer).

bb:

What about Alma and Rupert, the Sirians? Isn’t this the same as Mayland [M Continent], Alma’s kingdom? She instituted the religion — I’m sorry, religion/philosophy/game of Tyle on her island kingdom…

Hucka D.:

Queendom.

bb:

Right. Queendom. The Council of 9 becomes the Council of ONE. TYLE. SID.

Hucka D.:

Syd, yeah. (pause in talking)

You must allow the aliens to come.

(to be continued)

*******

(SEVERAL MINUTE LATER).

Baker Bloch:

Blinks, we like each other, you and I.

Baker Blinker:

Of course! But not in that way.

Baker Bloch:

No, not in that way. Still there is respect. A kind of love.

Hucka D. (cutting to the point):

Your curse, Ms. Blinker. We must talk about your curse.

Magic Mirror

Filed under: Uncategorized — baker Blinker @ 8:39 am
Tags:

“You said it was the Big Book Hucka D.”

Hucka D.:

I thought you’d understand better at the time. It is, instead, a mirror. A magic mirror. Into the future.

Baker Bloch:

This sounds like Ozma’s magic mirror.

Hucka D.:

It is similar. All knowing and all seeing eye. Illuminati. Dark and light. Black and white. Male and female. Complementary opposites. Two sets of eyes as one. Magic.

Baker Bloch:

I wish to go to the mainland now. That can be my role in this.

Hucka D.:

Wait, Baker Bloch, er, Mr. Bloch. We most definitely need to talk about TILE. Er, Tyle.

Baker Blinker:

The rotating block in the center.

Hucka D.:

Yes, Baker Blinker. We must have a meeting of the heads.

Baker Bloch:

Alright, but not for too long.

Baker Blinker:

I’ll start, then. The block. Why is there a Y in place of the I that should logically be there?

Hucka D.:

It’s interesting to me, among many other things, that orange and violet are seen as complements on the cube instead of yellow and violet, which are the actual opposite or complementary colors on the pigment color wheel. Same for blue and yellow on the cube. It is as if yellow switches places with orange. Red and green, forming the last and third pair of complements depicted on the cube, are the same as the opposites red-green on the pigment color wheel.

Baker Bloch (to Hucka D.):

*You* are the “Y”.

Hucka D.:

I have thought of that. I am I that is Y.

Baker Blinker:

I am I that is why?

Hucka D.:

No, not “why” the word. “Y” the letter. I… Y.

Baker Blinker:

Oh. (pause) The word and not the letter again, that is (smiles).

Baker Bloch:

Time’s a wasting.

Hucka D.:

Yes, Baker Bloch. We are on the cusp of yet another shift in this SL related blog. This phase was all leading up to this point, this *central point*.

Baker Blinker:

The block.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

Baker Bloch:

I’m outta here. Later guys. You tell me what you come up with. (Baker Bloch teleports out to visit the mainland).

Hucka D.:

That is fine it is just you and me Ms. Blinker. We are, after all, the ones who are building and decorating the structure in the main. Mr. Bloch is contributing as he knows how, and it will pay off soon. The blog is shifting.

Baker Blinker:

We must begin to have regular family meetings in the new beehive [Temple of TILE].

Hucka D.:

This is the center where it all ends.
