“Doorpick” (2) March 1, 2009

“March 1, Hucka D. Snow tomorrow.”

Hucka D.:

Don’t put your boots up yet.

bb:

Strange that I haven’t even worn my snow boots this winter. Probably 5 inches of snow max during any one event.

Hucka D.:

That could change.

bb:

I thought we would go further with an interpretation of “Doorpick” tonight, and perhaps just loosely chat as well.

Hucka D.:

The Resident looms large in the middle of the woods.

bb:

Yeah, I think I know what that is. Do you like the lexicon I started?*

Hucka D.:

It’s the thing to do.

bb:

Since Jasper the Rook — let’s call him a rook — is in the forest as well, should we talk to him tonight?

Hucka D.:

Yes.

Jasper the Rook:

Portal is next. In and out. Not much harm done. Dog… dingo. Enters and exits. What’s inside? Caw!

bb:

Japan?

*****

Hucka D.:

He is gone again. Looking at the Stranger Creek Blog again, eh?

bb:

Yes, a friend says it could be inspired by SL. The reference to Lindens and also the grid. But I know this isn’t so.

Hucka D.:

You need to find that collage. College, I mean.**

bb:

Will the 10×10 return to the Lake District, Hucka D?

Hucka D.:

I am here to answer what I can. Yes.

bb:

I started relooking at the bits and pieces of 1P today, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

As it was suppose to happen.

bb:

Interesting that it has the same name as an early collage.

Hucka D.:

Look at that collage again, in your mind. Someone has donned an eyeball costume. Delete name is who it is. In The Diamonds restaurant on the high fell but not too high.

bb:

Isn’t that the place Larry Byrd proposed to Lennie Fish to make her become Lennie Bird? Two birds and 1 stone, I suppose [stone of engagement ring].

Hucka D.:

Conjunctio. Then darkness… more. Like the collage itself. Highest of the series. At the top of the valley and then even beyond, but you didn’t know that at the time.

bb:

That’s the first time The Residents show up in a collage. Although I didn’t know who they were at the time.

Hucka D.:

Keep in mind that The Diamonds was a restaurant known from coast to coast. Atlantic, Great Lakes, Specific… Pacific. On one side of Franklin County [where the restaurant use to be] is a Pacific town. But not to the west, as would be logical. Is it chance, then? No.

bb:

I was thinking somewhat of other connections with that county, after rereading the Lyme section of Floydada again the other day. Acid, for one thing. (pause) Although I can’t find it on the internet maps of the county. It’s in one of my atlases.

Hucka D.:

New International, circa ____. Your base atlase for map explorations.

bb:

Yeah, I think so. But to me this points to The Beatles’ song Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. Another diamond in the same county. But there’s more… probably much more.

Hucka D.:

We have returned to reality from SL. Breathe it in.

bb:

I found Acid, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

[delete name] was going to go into that cave and take acid to complete his journey off the grid. But instead he went to the neighboring cave of [delete name] and saw the dragon. East of Butchie… Dragon.

bb:

Same as was at the exact center of Quadrospirited. TILE Creek, then, most likely.

Hucka D.:

String, thread. The smallest quantity known. Planck’s constant.

bb:

[delete name] has the answers about Tile.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Unfortunately.

bb:

Where’s Grassy?

Hucka D.:

You must look into the cup of tea. 1, 2, 3. Otherland? Red, green, blue. Diamonds. Atlantic, Great Lakes, Specific…I mean…

bb:

Franklin County is the US as a whole. Thanks to [delete name].

Hucka D.:

You’re going to find much more about it.

bb:

Collage novel, I assume. When will that occur?

Hucka D.:

Certainly after the 10×10. 5 years from now. Winesap first, though.

bb:

The collage novel idea only occurred to me about a week ago, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Right time comes along.

bb:

It’s a natural extension of the 10×10 and also audiovisual synchronicities.

Hucka D.:

You better go inworld now.

bb:

Thank you.

* Baker Bloch’s old blog, unused for the longest time, is now being converted into a blog about the 100 individual pieces of the 10×10. Each piece will have its own post. Numerous categories, then, will link the posts/collages together in various ways. Should be a lot of fun! Link soon.

** Linden College in the blog is probably inspired by the neighboring town of Linwood, said by one account to be named for the many linden trees that grew in the area. A bit about the college and town here. Reference to being “off the grid” is here.
