“As you have surmised, we have a very special guest tonight, baker b.: Bill Hill. We’ll try it anyhow.”

bb:

Nice. Should we chat some first?

Hucka D.:

If you wish.

bb:

I’m getting that Bill Hill wants to look at some of the Oblong collages.

Hucka D.:

That’s correct. Oblong 3. Montana secures the afterlife.

bb:

Interesting. I suppose he’d also be interested in, say, Greenup 10 and 11.

Hucka D.:

We’re going to do some prepping. You ready for this?

bb:

You want for me to go inworld and look through my eyes again?

Hucka D.:

Yes. I want to look at the collage as Bill Hill might look at the collages.

bb:

Are we not going to speak to Bill Hill tonight?

Bill Hill:

Hey.

bb:

Hi Bill… Mr. Hill. (pause)

Bill Hill:

Hello.

bb:

Mr. Hill, are you a mountain turned into a hill?

Bill Hill:

The Devil is… (pause)

bb:

Mr. Hill? (no answer) Mr. Hill? (pause) Hucka D., I think he’s gone.

Hucka D.:

Then let’s go into the gallery. Let’s try the lower one… easier to move around in.

[1:04] baker Bloch: So here we are, Hucka D.
Snapshot1380_003smaller
[1:04] HD: I don’t want to look at that one. That’s “It’s All Here”. We want to look at the cleared out collages, you know.
[1:04] baker Bloch: Thank you Hucka D. Let’s move on, then.
[1:05] baker Bloch: This is the second and third collages of the Oblong series now, Hucka D.
[1:05] HD: It is, of course, the 3rd that begins to really interest me, baker b.
[1:06] baker Bloch: Is this Bill Hill yet?
[1:06] HD: Kind of.
[1:06] baker Bloch: I remember I… well it’s a long story.
[1:07] baker Bloch: I think Pencil Tail is where the series really got going.
[1:07] HD: We’re zooming into Birdtail Butte here, I remember.
[1:08] HD: Bird… tail. Pencil. Pencil characters. 2d from 3d. Grave… Pip. Gorilla/ape. Heading to Birdtail.
[1:08] HD: Top of Bird Tail. Seathwaite Fell below. SF. That’s what Bill Hill was looking for. That *is* Bill Hill.
[1:09] baker Bloch: I’m less sure about Santa Speaks, Hucka D.
[1:09] baker Bloch: It takes place on the other side of Scafell from Seathwaite Fell. The action I mean.
[1:10] HD: That’s where Peter died, baker b.
[1:10] baker Bloch: Yes… supposedly.
[1:10] HD: In that gill.
[1:10] HD: Santa seems to be saying something here, baker b. What?
[1:10] baker Bloch: Maybe the mysteries of his death?
[1:10] HD: Peter and Bill are intimately tied.
[1:11] baker Bloch: On Bill Hill now. I mean Seathwaite Fell.
[1:12] HD: The spoken, recorded words of Santa are now folded out neatly on the mountain, and then folded up neatly in the globe. Santa’s there again.
[1:12] HD: With his presents. Bag of toys.
[1:12] HD: He will be missed.
[1:13] baker Bloch: All this is part of one story. The ape-man is climbing the Earth related butte now, like King Kong on the Empire State Building… ESB.
[1:15] baker Bloch: bb: Just like the hikers. 3rd stage. Citrinitas.
[1:16] HD: They are looking for the mysteries of the Oblong series itself. Do you know them [baker b.]?
[1:16] baker Bloch: They are climbing Seathwaite Fell from a diff. direction in Oblong 09, Hucka D.
[1:16] HD: Like you are checking out both sides of Big Sink now.
[1:16] baker Bloch: Yes, I suppose.
[1:17] baker Bloch: Then in Oblong 10, on top. Ape is monkey. Dog is again dog. No humans, though. A 2001 type monolith in front. Represents pen and pencil together.
[1:17] HD: Pennsylvania. Corsica Prime.
[1:17] baker Bloch: Yes, Hucka D. Peter.
[1:18] baker Bloch: The Penn is mightier than the Pennsyl. (smiles)
[1:18] HD: Is it really?
[1:19] baker Bloch: Peter represents a greater energy, like ink over graphite. More efficient. Seathwaite Fell is where graphite originally came from. Purest source for, well, centuries actually. It all starts here.
[1:19] HD But Pen Rock was found on top of Seathwaite Fell, baker b. Correct?
[1:19] baker Bloch: Yes. This collage is all about that [juxtaposition].
[1:20] HD Green Gables in the background. Mary Anne?
[1:20] baker Bloch: I’m not sure, Hucka D.
[1:21] HD [In Oblong 11], passage through two gravestones, facing each other. Like Oblong 02. With a green oblong shape between them. Oblong.
[1:21] baker Bloch: Yes, Hucka D. There must be a relationship. I’m going back over briefly to Oblong 02 to check.
Snapshot1380_008smaller
[1:22] baker Bloch: It’s that island in the middle of Grasmere Lake that Wordsworth was so interested in, Hucka D.
[1:22] HD: Grave.
[1:22] baker Bloch: The box in Oblong 11, the green one, is where all these letters of Oblong come from. It’s written on the box.
[1:22] baker Bloch: Back to Oblong 11, then.
[1:23] HD: What does that mean, baker b.? It seems significant.
[1:24] baker Bloch: It’s about the collage series itself, I suppose. Self reference.
[1:25] HD: Ahhh, 9 who became 1 instead of 8. Peter. Peter’s decision.
[1:25] baker Bloch: Yes, Hucka D. The second largest of the Seathwaite tarns became largest after the real largest, Sprinkling Tarn, was filled in by the council. This is..
[1:25] baker Bloch: *forgetting.*
[1:26] HD: Baker Bloch is typing now when there’s nothing to type. Maybe you better log out and back in. He seems broken.
[1:26] baker Bloch: Thank you Hucka D. Hold on…
[1:27] baker Bloch: There, he stopped. For a moment… of course he’s started now again now I’m typing again.
[1:27] baker Bloch: Seems ok now, Hucka D. Let’s continue.
[1:27] HD: bb: So this is the new, largest tarn of Seathwaite Fell zoomed in and stuff.
[1:28] baker Bloch: There’s the Grasmere Island again. The idea was to make Seathwaite Fell a microcosm of the entire Lake District, Hucka D.
[1:28] baker Bloch: This was S.F.’s choice. Forgetting…
[1:28] HD: About Peter.
[1:28] baker Bloch: Yes.
[1:28] HD: Yet you have signs of Peter all around the lake. You know?
[1:29] HD: There’s Bill Hill, baker b.
Snapshot1380_010smaller
[1:29] baker Bloch: Yes. I know.
[1:29] HD: Your bird is the onlooking dingo now.
[1:29] baker Bloch: Ok.
[1:29] HD: What do you think this means?
[1:30] baker Bloch: It is another Pennsylvania runny mess sealed up by West Virginia. Sealed up by S.F. himself.
[1:30] baker Bloch: Peter must be forgotten.
[1:32] HD: Moire effect, baker b. Ill remembered. Confusion because of the cover up. It didn’t work properly, baker b.
[1:32] baker Bloch: You mean the attempt to make S.F. the whole Lake District. No, I suppose it didn’t.
[1:32] HD: It has the same flaws as a perpetual TILE waterfall.
[1:33] baker Bloch: Hucka D., I felt Oblong 15 here was the most successful of the series so far. Nice balance between all pictorial elements.
[1:33] HD: This is where the moire effect begins to become rectified, baker b.
[1:33] baker Bloch: Yes, I suppose.
[1:33] HD: Wet Rock. Found in… where?
[1:33] baker Bloch: Greenup Gill valley.
[1:34] HD: It then travels up the side of the mountain all the way to Tarn of Leaves. By way of Stanger Gill. Stanger. Stranger.
[1:34] baker Bloch: I remember that Tarn of Leaves is actually 3 tarns in one.
[1:36] HD: I am puzzled by [Oblong 17] admittedly, baker b.
[1:37] baker Bloch: bb: Yes, Oblong 17 represents a tricky impasse. Thank you.
[1:37] HD: Bill Hill thanks you for showing me your collages, baker b. We will continue.

  1. […] “(Collage 17) is another great 3-n-1. And where we also ended an Oblong analysis from, what was it, way back in 2008? LINK” […]
