“Hucka D., are you the same as Booker T. by chance??”

Hucka D.:

I am an aspect. A thing that the present person will not allow himself or herself to believe. It is future influencing present, but disguised so as to be palatable or absorbable at the time.

bb:

Well, if you’re Booker T., and I think you are to a degree anyway, I’m going to use our discussions as a kind of warm-up for the new round of SID’s 1st Oz related interview with *you*. Do you have intimate knowledge of Booker?

Hucka D.:

Booker is an art professor and a cousin. He agrees with you that TRS is an oddity. I am not exactly Booker but I could stand in for him, if you want a new angle. The Jug is where we meet.

bb:

Should I simply interview Booker again instead?

Hucka D.:

That would be another option. (pause) And I would add that you should *not* give up the Ruby Forest property at this time. Build a web site all around that core: the temple and the gallery.

(bb does not answer)

Hucka D.:

CHRO is next, among other things. Sculpture. 3d. Keyboards.

bb:

CHOR?

(to be continued?)

bb:

Hucka D., there’s someone at the gallery right now and I didn’t want to bother them.

Hucka D.:

Beehive, individual lights. One that cannot be followed. Y. Bee. Yellow. Faster than light. Tachyon. String theory (of course). 11th. 11th.

bb:

Hucka D., I’m going to ask some questions about SID’s 1st Oz to find out your response. Ready?

Hucka D.:

Letters are regions. F — sorry, L — then E for Oz, then T for Nome King, then I for Return. That’s obvious. You begin with f; the first tile of SID is f. fghijkl. Tull is l. Then E, or mnopqrst. Tull is t, the ending tile again. Then you have L, or uvwxyz. Dark Globe, the beginning letter of a, is an anomaly. You must find out why. Tull is y here, so not at the end this time. Then Dark Globe begins the last TILE of I, or abcde to end. Tull is e, the ending tile again. But Dark Globe represents not so much a kink as an anomaly, like I said.*

bb:

I think it refers to his isolation after being kicked out by the other Floyds from their band.

Hucka D.:

Dorothy is all alone in the movie at this point, all her friends transformed into ornaments — Jack, Gump, and now Tiktok. She is left with blind chance to come up with the correct ornament in the movie to resolve the situation, which happens to be colored green, the color of Oz. But it is blind chance that she discovers this. Blind faith. Helen Keller.

bb:

Overcoming “Dark Globe” would mean going beyond or above the fate of Barrett, dying alone essentially, or trapped alone, as in an ornament. Tatooing brain all the way… Dorothy trapped in Oz forever and ever. Emily.

Hucka D.:

Go to your temple.

*Lyrics to Dark Globe…

Oh where are you now
pussy willow that smiled on this leaf?
(Tiktok has just disappeared — oh where are you now, Dorothy is certainly wondering as well.)
When I was alone you promised the stone from your heart
my head kissed the ground
I was half the way down, treading the sand
please, please, lift a hand
I’m only a person whose armbands beat
on his hands, hang tall
(Mombi has armbands?)
won’t you miss me?
Wouldn’t you miss me at all?
(Dorothy is certainly missing Tiktok here, who has disappeared and become an ornament himself after not guessing correctly in three tries) (As this is probably a reference in the song to Barrett himself disappearing from Pink Floyd, or being banished, more accurately, then is Tiktok the same as Barrett here?)

The poppy birds way
swing twigs coffee brands around
brandish her wand with a feathery tongue
(I think this could be a reference to Cunnilingus?? Esp. since…)
my head kissed the ground
I was half the way down, treading the sand
(Mombi is half the way down to the ground in the movie here, bending in servitude to the Nome King. He demands she goes lower… “treading the sand” (sand =s emptiness/desert, as in empty head… his head did no thinking). Then only at the end the song does the Nome King allow her to rise up again.) (Also, Wheelers die while treading sand of Deadly Desert earlier in movie)
please, please, please lift the hand
(Mombi perhaps needs a hand to get up.)
I’m only a person with eskimo chain
[note: no one seems to know what “eskimo chain is…]
I tattooed my brain all the way
Won’t you miss me?
Wouldn’t you miss me at all

Additional facts:

Dark Globe was the last track to be recorded for the Madcap Laughs album.
Dark Globe remake was B side of British release Orange Crush single by REM.

  1. […] I find it very interesting that Hucka D. uses the phrase “new angle” in this post from September several months before the discovery of Ozmo, Ozma’s brother, and his own “New […]
