” Dig something hard enough and you will fall into it.”

~ Chesaw to Saw-chee after an especially heated game of Trivia Ratsuit

“Hucka D., I think the Pudding Hole 1024 parcel still up for sale was the site of Vortextra. *This* is how Mythos and Second Life linked up, perhaps. Common *black hole*.

Hucka D.:

Pie hole. Good night to you.

bb:

Same to you. Let’s insert the picture of the tv from Long Island Sound, still around and now in the Blake Sea region.

Hucka D.:

Go noob or be cube.

bb:

What?

Hucka D.:

Go there or be square.

bb:

Oh, ok. Here’s the picture anyway. Hey, we were just talking about Baker Bloch’s father, weren’t we?

Hucka D.:

I think we called him unfit to eat because of his ghostly paternity.

bb:

So back on track…

Hucka D.:

Let’s look at an interesting picture of a wormhole.

I have a riddle for you, baker b. Which came hunt, the fox or the egg?

bb:

Hucka D., I have no idea.

Hucka D.:

Make your joe, Joe.

*****

bb:

Back. (sips joe) Maybe Brouwer gives a cue, er, clue, Hucka D. The many stairs of the Gas N’ Glass. Like the Escher print I found in Alice on the protected land. Yes, it was at the bottom of this post. I wonder if this represents a way to seal up the wormhole. It can be a cube, spinning on the x, y, z axis all at once.

Hucka D.;

This is Third Life inside the Second. That’s a dangerous place [to be].

bb:

Alice is Chilbo, isn’t she?

Hucka D.:

Chilbo needs Korean Channel needs Sunklands needs Chilbo.

bb:

You were just waiting for an opening for that. (Hucka D. smiles)

Hucka D.:

How do you control a widening portal when opened? It is a coffee cup. It is a blue blox. The Blue Box. There’s your Chilbo automatons way out in King’s Beach, Chromex, which is caddycorner to Crowston. You should noob cube.

bb:

Go back, you mean. To King’s Beach.

Hucka D.:

To CHRO. 12 or 13. Teu e teu e.

bb:

Back to this Vortextra idea for a moment. Was it in the central Pudding Hill parcel?

Hucka D.:

It’s still there. That’s why it’s for sale. Haunted, they say. Not fit for resident or robot, they whisper. And of course they remember the Trivia Ratsuit contest, at least on an unconscious level. Like Dark Side… Darkside. Go back. They remember The Rat.

bb:

This is his *hole*.

Hucka D.:

Vortex, yes. Opened during the contest. Piehole. Flaming. Ask Marty.

bb:

Is he around tonight?

Hucka D.:

He is buying bird seed for his several parrots tonight, unfortunately. He’s very helpful and informative, though, don’t you think. We’re lucky to have him around, wanting to be a part of all this runny mess that might not be satisfactorily sealed up in the end [and all].

bb:

He’s really McCartney.

Hucka D.:

A McCartney variant. Like spam for ham.

bb:

You’re full of rhymes tonight, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Golden.

*****

bb:

I have a feeling campers camped next to the widening hole — sink hole — in tents like the one in the tiny Alice park. Chilbo.

Hucka D.;

Chilbo, da. Chilbo was there.

 

Sunklands, Brouwer 01

To me, Brouwer is where things start to get real interesting to me, in terms of attempting to see the past in the present. Not necessarily at this small shop, called Fashion for the End of the World, but just beyond (up the stairs below), in a place called Q’s Gas n’ Glass.

Baker has actually visited this store on several occasions now. Didn’t realize how tall the structure was until taking a closer look this day.

Very nice garden area attached to the main structure, which, as advertised, mainly sells decorative, etched glass and also neon (gas) animated signs.

View from garden area back to Route 10. Hucka D. has recommended that Baker Bloch sometimes “hang” here, and contemplate deeper memories of Big Sink from this more natural, meditative area.

From the owner’s picks (Quiet Sinatra), Baker Bloch is also lead to Bistro Olive, a small but quality art gallery featuring different artists every few weeks, and located on tranquil Marco Island.

Sunklands, Moa 03

More little stores in the Moa sim, most toward the east end this time.

Natural area just to north of Moa, in Kakapo. To extreme left here is a rather busy mall area that looks like it takes up the whole 1/4th northwest corner of this sim at least. It’s a fairly basic mall, however, as far as they go. Not worth a special trip in Baker Bloch’s estimation — certainly could be wrong.

Then it’s on to Brouwer to the west. Nice water tank!
