First and Second Life at least.

Black Book, The June 7, 2009

A new group of toy avatars arrive in a spiffy sports goodmobile, complete with see-thru walls and neon colored trim. No plain, rusty ol’ cylinder for these trendmaker wannabes! Blue Feather and Tronboid are their names, but they also brought along, let’s see, their 5 pets: a snail, a bee, a butterfly, a beetle bug, and a flower. A flower? Blue Feather and Tronboid never travel without their beloved pets, partly because of fondness but also admittedly because they can do work that the master pair don’t wish to do themselves. Well, at least what Blue Feather doesn’t want to do, because he is the true master, and Tronboid merely a more simple minded travel companion. Tronboid truly loves the pets; Blue Feather sees them more as work slaves, as he sees Tronboid himself in that light sometimes. But Blue Feather would be the first to admit that it makes for one crowded ride.

They read about the the location of the camp in a recent article in Toy Avatar Digest. Amazing! they thought. We must visit this site in the legendary Salad Bar Jack in the River of TILE. The dark, mysterious Cave of the Alphabet with its haunting, nightly humming of a certain famous childhood mnemonic. The bridge over TILE Creek where Bill Fork slipped and fell to his untimely death. The tree where Screamer (played by Tommy “The Screamer” Benerson) died of fright in the middle of the night after hearing a deep growl in the surrounding woods. The mossy rock where Mossman was enjoying an afternoon nap in the sun when he first heard the singing of the cave. On and on and on it could go.

They set down in the middle of a clearing described in the article, and where the first goodmobile arrived in Jonesborough in the movie, carrying T-Bonz and his Mmmmmms. Sacred ground!

Blue Feather and Tronboid seal up the pets inside the flashy goodmobile and continue toward the oblong rock mountain directly in front of them. They saw pictures of this large rock formation in the article, and read that the old camp the actors made during the shooting was located just behind it. They thought they’d start with that on their sightseeing tour of the area. But to get pass the rock they had to cross, nay, crawl across this slippery log-bridge. Of course they thought of Bill Fork and his deadly fall off a similar bridge in the same area. They crept very carefully, thus, but truth is that both Blue Feather and Tronboid, being much stockier and more solidly built avatars, would most likely not be harmed in such a fall, especially off this less high bridge here. But, then again, both were cowards at heart, especially Tronboid.

It looks like some of the camp remains! Not good woods cleanup management, admittedly, but both Blue Feather and Tronboid are very happy. But when they come closer, a shocking revelation…

… the colorful shapes they saw from the now safely traversed bridge are those of toy avatars themselves! Mind you, the first ones that Blue Feather and Tronboid ran across, including Snoppy and his bird friend Woodstock here, were merely hired hands in the movie. Covered with dirt and leaves, often half buried in the ground even, they appeared as if in suspended animation.

Blue Feather revives the avatars by performing a patented magic dance filled with waving golden feather motions [delete 32 sentences about patented magic dance with waving golden feather motions].

Blue Feather then assembles the revived camp and tells them their new, secret mission [35 sentences deleted, because it’s suppose to be a secret after all].

To signal the beginning of the Age of the Secret Mission, a Second Life for the toy avatar community at Jonesborough afer all, Tronboid climbs the steep side of what they now knew was called Mr. Alton Barnes Mountain (named for an old, old toy avatar that only one of the troupe faintly recalls as being a quite fantastic old chap, and worthy of having a mountain named for him to remember him by), positioning what he thought was a pure silver metalwork of the number “20” on its rocky side with Denver Pyle Super Glue.

Upon seeing what his life partner had done, Blue Feather rudely corrected him, saying it was a *50* and not a 20, and that he had the thing upside down. Luckily the super glue wasn’t quite dry, and Tronboid was able to, with some effort still, turn the metalwork over to assume its rightful direction.

“Fifty”, Blue Feather then spoke, finally satisfied. “We have 50 years until the Pope is poisoned by inferior Winesburg.” The troupe applauded thunderously.

We Better Keep Chatting, 02

Filed under: Crabwoo,Uncategorized — baker Blinker @ 9:55 am

“Hi Hucka D.”

Hucka D.:

Hello. We better keep chatting (smiles).

bb:

I think now that the Blue Feather Sea is suppose to represent, on one level, the Blue Earth itself, depicted as a cube, though, instead of a sphere.*

Hucka D.:

That’s what you were suppose to find out. You are following the breadcrumbs correctly.

bb:

Fascinating that the statue of the Green Giant is found in Blue Earth, Minnesota, then, as “green giant” is implied in this post from early May. It states that Karoz is both green and red, giant and squirt or dwarf. Care to comment?

Hucka D.:

Two purses in one. You must build the Blue Feather Gallery, now that you know it is about (Blue) Earth as well.

bb:

So the “E” more or less just leads to the Blue Feather or Blue Earth cube.

Hucka D.:

The “E” is a little cumbersome. But, yeah, this is where the entire Korean Channel is instead dumped in the lap of the Blue Feather. The Blue Feather takes over. But there’s still connections to be found between the two. The “K” sims, for example.

bb:

The TILE game comes from McCall’s (magazine), and there’s a Miccall sim in the Blue Feather, one of the six.

Hucka D.:

You will shortly “live” beside the Blue Feather on the Mãebaleia Continent and attempt to recreate Crabwoo. You will be the cornerstone. Others will be attracted, though. You’ll see. (smiles)

bb:

Can you tell me more about The Bills now, who are Bills-in-one, as you put it?

Hucka D.:

They are the original inhabitants of the Blue Feather region. They created the cube, you see. The Earth cube. They knew about the Korean Channel or (false) Inland Sea of Jeogeot. Then they created Crabwoo as a study station.

bb:

This is Ruuster, still?

Hucka D.:

Yeah, R110.

bb:

I don’t know… is this some kind of SL-Earth connection?

Hucka D.:

*Yes.*

bb:

Will the giant capital “E” that represents the Korean Channel always now be associated with the Blue Feather Sea?

Hucka D.:

Blue changes to green, though, eh?** Then green to red and then yellow to get back to blue. TILE.

bb:

The presence of the Miccall sim here is a strong clue I’m on the right track.

Hucka D.:

As I indicated.

bb:

Is the blue marble on the top level of the falls in Newton 09 the Blue Feather, then?

Hucka D.:

Obviously, in one way.

bb:

The 09 collages keep coming up, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

And then take a look at the opposite.

bb:

Mossman, for one thing. A green giant of sorts… But big difference: no waterfall in Jasper 09, as there was in Wheeler 09 coming out of that same rock guarded portal.

Hucka D.:

Lemon plus lime directly above it, too.

bb:

What should I do, or Karoz do, at the Blue Feather until I get the gallery organized?

Hucka D.:

Make maps!

bb:

Thank you.

* It has already been discussed by baker b. and Hucka D. about the anagram made between words “Feather” and “Earth”, if you take away the first letter of the former.

** Hucka D. is indicating, in one way, the quite green Xilted sim here, shown in the lower right corner of the bottom of the “E” found by Karoz in the Blue Feather Sea.
