Loose Thoughts: Sunklands August 30, 2009

Filed under: Big Sink,Hucka D.,Marty,Plant,Residents, The,Second Sink,Sunklands — baker Blinker @ 7:14 am

Marty:

As you thought about, I want to be moved ahead of The Residues at least. I’ve been studying the collages again. Strange Creek and all. baker b.?

(baker b. doesn’t answer)

Plant:

What about me? My group is lagging *far* behind yours. And we had to work together on The Arab. Foreign One.

Marty:

You needed humor. You needed to be able to make fun of yourself.

Plant:

I am making up time now. I wish to help more.

Marty:

baker b. will need your help, true. And mine. The tube for one. Sherwood. Zeppelin.

bb:

Hi guys.

Hucka D.:

Hello boys.

Plant:

You all show up at once. Where’ve you been?

bb:

We were working on the blog within the blog. Surely you’ve heard…

Marty (quickly):

Yes.

Hucka D.:

Going well. You two patch things up, then?

Plant:

*No.*

Marty:

Maybe.

bb:

Can we please talk about Sunklands, then, a little more tonight? The Arab? Outside the interior blog, I mean?

Plant:

We will work together to help you, seriously.

bb:

Were the original Sunklands just the smaller, second largest sink that Baker Bloch now resides within?

Plant:

Resident (looking at Marty, who sneers).

Hucka D.:

It could be. What say you Marty? Plant?

bb:

(after an awkward pause) Was The Arab, then, built or *found* in that particular sink? The most western sink?

Hucka D. (after Plant and Marty don’t answer again, and reinforcing his former opinion):

I think that could very well be. The Arab would fit quite comfortably within the present body of water. Marty and Plant would know better than I, though (this is a prompt for them to speak, but they don’t).

bb:

Maybe they left. I can’t see really well in this dimension.

Hucka D.:

Well, let’s move to the larger sink, the largest. The most damaged now, it seems. Has your Baker Bloch explored it all yet?

(bb shrugs)

Hucka D.:

I didn’t think so. You have further work in SL. And you must find the location of Petemond and understand who Peter or Pete was and also his Mound. Peter’s Mound or Petemond. Near Arrowtown, as I said.

bb:

Was Karoz even involved in The Arab project, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

He was involved with the Fuchsia Diamond.

bb:

This took place in the largest of the sinks, though.

Hucka D.:

As I said: maybe.

bb:

The first sink created, then, the smaller of the 2 main sinks, is Mythos?

Hucka D. (repeating what he said earlier):

Marty and Plant would know better than me.

bb:

They’re gone, it seems.

Hucka D.:

No. There they are, behind the curtain over in the shadows.

bb:

Oh. Yes. Marty?

(Marty does not answer)

Hucka D.:

Marty wants to move ahead of The Residues. You can make that happen.

(to be continued?)

*****

bb:

I sense a jostling of power behind the curtain, Hucka D. Lemon has something large to do with this, it appears. Let in The Bill. Allowed that to happen. And this started on the 2nd album….

Marty (quickly):

Yes. Rabbit Hole.

bb:

There you are. Where’s Plant?

Plant:

I am brought along for comic relief. Look at Marty’s eyes.

(bb. looked. They were the eyes of a daemon. Which reminded him…)

bb:

Hucka D., should we talk about Denville tonight?

Hucka D.:

There ya go.

bb:

Good. I’ve had a lot of fun exploring the Denville ridge.

Hucka D.:

You will camp out there sometime. Make a toy city. Marbles. *Marbles*.

bb:

Are marble avatars from that mountain and town, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Very well could be.

bb:

Are they instead from Frank and Herman Parks?

Hucka D.:

Most likely not. (pause) You should go back but not tomorrow.

bb:

I think I know what Petemond turned into. A through Z. A-Z.

Hucka D.:

What did Lemon open up? What World?

bb:

Mythos, I suppose.

Hucka D.:

He is a firehead. Always keep that in mind. The Fuchsia Diamond really didn’t have much to do with him. Residues, instead. They are special. Marty doesn’t like the speciality, particularly. He is staring at those collages, and thinking: that should be me. He is Sgt. Pepper, you see.

bb:

We must begin speaking of DL in the near future, then.

Hucka D.:

Yes. He controls the largest sinkhole.

 

Tonight I Thought We’d Try Something Different… August 29, 2009

Filed under: Uncategorized — baker Blinker @ 8:34 am

bb:

Hucka D., are you there?

Hucka D.:

You wish to speak to Baker Bloch? Interesting.

bb:

Yes, just to see how he’s doing… get in his shoes a bit.

Hucka D.:

Well.. alright…

Baker Bloch:

Hi baker b. Myself.

bb:

Hi.

Baker Bloch:

I am doing well. I am at peace.

bb:

What’s next for you? Beyond the peace?

Baker Bloch:

Another world. Assimilation. You had community here. You had possibilities. You still do.

bb:

Sunklands is an endpoint. According to Hucka D. Do you agree?

Baker Bloch:

I don’t usually disagree with Hucka Doobie. He is wise.

bb:

Most of the time. (laughs) So… Baker Bloch… can I call you Blochs?

Baker Bloch:

No. Just joking. That’s Ok. You do it in the blog sometimes. Before more than now but you slip it in sometimes.

bb:

Blochs, then, what is really in your future? Can you see it?

Baker Bloch:

I have my future.

bb:

Are you Syd?

(Baker Bloch doesn’t answer.)

bb:

Are you *SID*?

(no answer.)

bb:

Cyd? Cid? (pause)

 

Hucka D.? August 28, 2009

Filed under: Hucka D.,Marty,Plant,Sunklands — baker Blinker @ 8:20 am

“Hucka D., it’s been about a week since we’ve chatted. Hucka D.?”

Hucka D.:

Hi.

bb:

Are we ready to proceed?

Hucka D.:

Sunklands. Sink, sank.

bb:

I think this has something to do directly with The Arab and Foreign One, as you’ve indicated yourself already, I believe.

Hucka D.:

Fulfilled. Ancients. Wall. End.

Plant:

We were all there. When it happened.

bb:

The End?

Marty:

We can only operate within the lives we are given at the moment. If we die… we cannot speak.

bb:

Can you guys at least tell me where The Arab was in Sunklands?

Hucka D.:

No.

bb:

Petemond?

Hucka D.:

Near Arrowtown, true enough.

bb:

Is Pete the same as Peter Dunne, the done deal Peter?

Hucka D.:

Cross.

bb:

Do you wish to talk about Tronesis more, Hucka D.? You like talking about that subject. It was created mainly by a Peter [Gabriel] after all.

Hucka D.:

Possibility.

bb:

Marty, have you thought more about the collage images I sent to you?

Marty:

Yes. The Beetles and The Residues are equal. Stunning.

bb:

Yes. I agree. Is that why you wish not to speak?

Marty:

No. Not.

bb:

Why is that twinship in place, then? Do you know?

Hucka D.:

Go ahead Marty.

Marty:

Inflation of value. Inflation must deflate.

bb:

Is this something you are conscious of in real life?

Marty:

Maybe not.

bb:

Interesting. (pause) All this seems to be about checks and balances.

Marty:

May be.

bb:

You won’t even be seen as clearly the greatest from your era.

Plant:

But Led Zeppelin is not the rival. That was drilled into me.

bb:

In Sunklands?

Marty:

Lemon knew. He accepted it, he reveled in the idea. He was different from me in this way.

bb:

You identified yourself more as a Beetle.

Marty:

In a nutshell.

bb:

Lemon was glad to burn the idea up. Firehead.

Marty (repeating):

Firehead. (pause) Because he could give the identification up, he recieved, um, special privileges. He didn’t need them — that was the trick…

bb:

The Bill.

Hucka D.:

What do you think they are?

(to be continued?)

 

Loose Thoughts… August 27, 2009

Filed under: Sunklands — baker Blinker @ 8:29 am

Read “I, Avatar” today. Wasn’t incredibly impressed, although it did have its moments. Not a lot to identify with within. Worth a read if you’re heavily involved with SL.

I’m still at a decision point. I don’t think Hucka D. wants to go further with discussions about Sunklands’ Pete or Peter now. Do I start a blog within a blog or another blog altogether?

The pictures from RL Denville turned out pretty well. Encouraging.

*****

We come into SL with a background.

Pre-SL is really the summary of our experiences before being born in that virtual world.

For me, The Ancients come from Pre-SL.

Hucka D. states The Ancients were in Sunklands, or will be, perhaps (past and future have gotten severely mixed up since my move to Noru in May). We already know through this blog that they appeared or lived in Sansara, the oldest SL continent according to standard chronology.

The Ancients protected Sunklands according to Marty, perhaps created Sunklands in the first place. There were 4, two rectangular and two with jagged edges. And a 5th as well, which is somehow identified with Baker Bloch. Perhaps it is actually Baker Bloch somehow.

The Ancients helped create the Rabbit Hole of Blackmount.

What is the relationship between The Ancients and The Bill? One and the same?

The Ancients are from both The Moon and Pluto at once.

Sunklands has been described, overall, as an “initiative”. It also has been related to atomics.

 

RL “Denville”, 02

Filed under: Denville (rl town) — baker Blinker @ 3:06 am

The west end of Castle Rock ridge. I suppose this could be called Castle Rock proper. If I’m reading associated text correctly, looks like this was the planned site for an actual castle (?) Again, if so, I’m glad this plan didn’t go through, although I don’t suppose development on this ridge can be put off forever. Such high value real estate! But maybe I could be wrong and the ridge will be protected. Doubt it.

IMG_0113smallest

A viewing platform on the western tip. Incredible!

IMG_0115smallest

Perhaps mysterious bricks — originally yellow??

Heading back east to the large open meadow described in the post before this one.

Snapshot520_024smallest

And then to the ridge’s east side, the top of the old ski slopes. In the distance you can see what I call Diamond Rock (jutting rock in center of 1st photo below), which someone has built a road up to, as I’ve found out since these photos were taken. Diamond Rock is the place I “discovered” the Rainbow Sphere, according to legend. Diamond Rock is on a different ridge than Castle Rock Ridge, with its since discovered Key Rock.

RL “Denville”, 01

Filed under: Denville (rl town) — baker Blinker @ 3:00 am

I’m writing this text a *long* time after posting the photos. Almost 2 months later. Since then I’ve discovered Key Rock just behind the blue feather I’ll talk about below. Major discovery; could be the source location for the 3rd, large group of “toy avatars” in the general area after Mossmen and Mmmmmm’s.

Below is the largest open space of the ridge I’ll now call Castle Rock ridge. This is where I found the blue feather that seemed to point to deeper things at the time, a hunch proven correct in the meanwhile.

IMG_0060smallest

This rock, on the east side of the meadow, has become more important — it is on the same hump as Key Rock.

IMG_0064smallest

IMG_0065smallest

The immediate area of the discovery. The “junk” here is mainly refuse from a ski resort on the east side of the ridge, since closed.

IMG_0066smallest

Another view of the meadow/open space. Great view of Granddaddy Mtn. from here, as you can tell even through my limited photography skills.

IMG_0068smallest

IMG_0075smallest

A second open space lies just west along the unpaved ridge road. More incredible views. Looks like this use to be a small quarry. Glad they shut it down when they did.

Wires, perhaps ones used as part of the blasting operations.

Loose Thoughts… August 26, 2009

Although Baker Bloch has admittedly disappeared or sunk into Sunklands, I want to assure the reader or readers of this blog that he is faring fine. Here’s a couple of pictures of his beautiful, new digs, which he gave me permission to post.

Snapshot1286_002smaller

Snapshot1287_001smaller

He may report specific finds later on, but for now he’s just enjoying walking around his new neighborhood, and also hanging out at his cottage a bit and the nice lake, rocks, and waterfalls just outside. And birds! Lots of birds.

I probably should also report that Blochs has moved out of Lill Burn Valley, at least for now.

Thought I’d also post, just to clear out my backlog of SL related snapshots, these two pictures of, first, Jeogeot and then Maebaleia… another comparison shot, but this time focused on the 2 “Rabbit Holes” already discussed on this blog, particularly in this recent entry.

Snapshot1285_004smaller Snapshot1285_005smaller

In this early summer post, I similarly compared the masses of Jeogeot and Maebaleia through the perceived Chilbo-Crabwoo overlap, which I think still applies to a large degree. However, toggling between the two above maps gives a second or alternate way to look at this same continent resonation, this time overlapping the two rabbit holes on each, apparent twins of each other and unique to these particular spots in SL, perhaps… seemingly (at least as far as I’ve been able to check).

In looking at these again, the earlier Chilbo-Crabwoo map overlap still seems obviously more significant, but, make no mistake about it, there’s still mysteries to, er, plumb about these rabbit holes, and the continent overlap they make as well, most likely.

In other news/thoughts, I must decide what exhibit to show in my Yapland/Healy gallery next week, when I take down the current “E” exhibit. I’m leaning toward a more “conservative” show this time, perhaps just hanging some 10×10 collages, maybe just whole series. But we’ll see… I’ll keep the reader(s) posted.

*****

I’m very tempted to go further into the rabbit hole explanation, helped by a man I’ve recently identified as Peter or Pete, who has a great deal of information to share. The legend goes that Pete use to live in the northwest corner of Noru, right next to my current gallery parcels. He knew Karoz. He lived in Sunklands, and has some kind of direct connections with Petemond, which may have started out as “Peter’s Mound”. According to Hucka D., Petemond was an early town in Sunklands, perhaps its primary town. Perhaps it was pre-Second Life as well.

There are reasons to believe that Peter or Pete was a rabbit, maybe a rabbit avatar such as in the picture next to the Jeogeot Rabbit Hole. An obvious resonation would be Peter Rabbit (?) or Peter Cottontail.

I better bring in Hucka D. before I get into trouble… “Hucka D.?”

(no answer.)

Maybe it’s my decision. “Hucka?”

(no answer.)

Plant:

He’s not around tonight. He wasn’t expecting you. He has other projects.

bb:

Hi Plant. Do you or did you know Peter or Pete?

Plant:

Yes.

bb:

Was he a rabbit or rabbit avatar?

Plant:

Yes.

bb:

Was the town of Petemond or “Peter’s Mound” named after him.

Plant:

Right.

bb:

Can you say anything else?

Plant:

You better clear this with Hucka D. Goodnight.

bb:

Thank you.

 

Loose Thoughts; Part 19 of blog August 24, 2009

Filed under: Sunklands — baker Blinker @ 9:33 am

Despite Hucka D.’s warning, I don’t think this will be the end of the Baker Blinker Blog, but it will represent a pause, perhaps a rather large one, at least in terms of SL.

In *RL*, I plan to expand on the role of a place that I haven’t talked about before on this blog, with a direct resonance with a town called Denville in Mythos (in Bridee of Mythos, to be precise). A link between Mythos and RL is effected there. Or so the new theory goes. I’ll provide RL pictures asap; I wanted to go today but just didn’t make it. Tomorrow is a possibility.

A blue feather was found in an interesting spot on the mountain range in question. Will explore this range more in fall as well.

Denville has connections with Denver through name, but also nearby Boulder, now called Boulder West in this blog.

Baker Bloch, I believe, has disappeared temporarily or sunk temporarily into Sunklands on the Jeogeot continent. This is akin to his disappearance into Lemon World much earlier in this blog, except now Baker Bloch has more SL obligations to fulfill, such as maintaining galleries. He’ll be back. But the 2 disappearances seem to be linked. Could Lemon World exist also in Sunklands?

I believe Petemond (is this the same as Lemon World, somehow?) may have been located partially in the Arrowtown sim of Sunklands. A story of two side-by-side archetypes The Old Man and The Infant fit in here. They are the 2 survivors of what happened to Petemond… destroyed by atomics?

Arrowtown and Petemond, though, do not make a 1:1 match. There might be an overlap, but still quite distinct differences and separations between the 2.*

2 halves of Dr. Blood are united through Petemond.

Did “Greater Petemond” include our Rabbit Hole in Blackmount?**

* Is Arrowtown somehow connected to Arrowhead, 7th largest city of the Wazob country of Mythos? Arrowhead linked to arrowhead on Kansas City Chiefs football helmets. Might be connected to Kanas City Life, then, and thus Second Life.

**Sinks of Sunklands use to be larger and more numerous (?)

 

We Must Press Even More Forward, Hucka D., 01 August 22, 2009

Filed under: Hucka D.,Petemond,Plant,Sunklands — baker Blinker @ 9:36 am

“Hi.”

Plant:

Hey.

bb:

Hucka D. not around?

Plant:

Hold on…

Hucka D.:

The word for tonight is, well…

bb:

Sunklands?

Hucka D.:

You must shift. 19.

bb:

We’re starting the 19th part of this blog, perhaps with this post.

Hucka D.:

It’s ended.

bb:

Nah, I don’t think so. Even if SL went away I’d still have the RL photographs.

Hucka D.:

You are all set up now in Noru. b_hivia, ground… it’s all as you wished. You have your mythology now. Rabbit Hole.

bb:

I can disappear down the rabbit hole?

Hucka D.:

It is a good possibility to explore, baker b. Here… now.

bb:

Maybe we should shift back to talking about 1 subject each night. I’ve volunteered Sunklands. Maybe we can limit that to The Ancients in Sunklands.

Hucka D.:

Wall.

bb:

What do you wish to talk about tonight?

Hucka D.:

The End.

bb:

Should I…

Hucka D.:

Walk through your gallery before leaving tonight, yes.

bb:

I think I should start over. Start by examining the neighbor’s property which I never had. Start with Noru and branch out. Maybe send Karoz to Chilbo to live for a spell.

Hucka D.:

Sink, sank, sunk.

bb:

The Arab is like The Titanic?

Hucka D.:

Sinking of a town sent.

Petermond:

Ho ho oh. Illy du qua pro vincent price argard rasingpop hoop.

Hucka D.:

It seems to be the end again. At least…

bb:

For Baker Bloch?

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

Thank you.

Hucka D.:

You’re very welcome.

 

We Must Press Forward, Hucka D., 02 August 21, 2009

Filed under: Hucka D.,Lemmon,Petemond,Sunklands — baker Blinker @ 7:23 am

Hucka D.:

I’m ready to talk about Petemond more now. Others are as well. Lemon.

bb:

Lemon?

Hucka D.:

Do you wish to see?

bb:

Er… sure.

Lemon:

Good evening to ya, baker. baker b. baker Beach. (snickers)

bb:

Are you really, um, Lemon, like Marty described it?

Lemon:

Sort of.

bb:

Another variant?

Lemon:

Another world. What did you see?

bb:

Hmmm… well, if you’re talking about Lemon World I saw the Hidalgo collage series. Is that what you mean?

Lemon:

Sure we can head that way chum. Chump. Seriously: chum.

bb:

Do you know me, then?

Lemon:

We all know you, baker b. All us variants from Sunklands. I am heart.

bb (repeating what Lemon said):

I am heart.

Lemon (facetiously):

Oh, you too?

bb:

And Marty is the head, the whirly brain bits?

Lemon:

Good, yeah. But: no. Ok, maybe.

bb:

Beetles we’re talking about here. With the double “e”s.

Lemon:

You went into my world.

bb:

Baker Bloch did, with Hucka D. Do you know Hucka D.?

Lemon (in weird echoey growl):

Uhhhhhhhhh.

bb:

Strange.

Lemon (repeats sound):

Uhhhhhhhhh.

Hucka D.:

Lemon, ladies and gentlemen. He’ll return soon with a tune. In the meantime, we have, well, who do we have?

bb:

Plant? (pause) Marty?

Hucka D.:

Let’s try something different. You up for this? Let’s try a whole, damn town.

bb:

Petemond?

Hucka D.:

Right. You ready? I’ll have to really concentrate for this.

bb:

OK.

Hucka D.:

Here it comes. (a flood of voices fill the air, one by one they disappear until only one remains, chanting some indecipherable, yes, it was a song. Or tune).

Hucka D.:

I’ll translate (the voice stops singing and transforms into dialog). Hold on… “Inky doo. Oblong. Whadda you wanna me to do for you? O’kay. Understand? Whadda you want?”

Hucka D.:

You are Petemond?

Petemond:

Iky don’t. Whadda you for here to do you? Easily understand me.

Hucka D.:

Can you describe what you are?

Petemond:

Inky diddlydoo don’t. We are town and country working together.

Hucka D.:

Are you collage?

Petemond:

Piddly do don’t. We are Rose on the Hill and Hidal gotta go.

Hucka D.:

I’ll take that for a yes.

Petemond:

For a yes, no. Do da.

Hucka D.:

Petemond:

Do da.

Hucka D.:
