“Gonna jump right into this, Hucka D., since I already took notes today on what we might speak about tonight. You there?”

Hucka D.:

Good that Nish Mip and Sachie Bade are working hard on their blogs, as well as Ms. Tuque. Have you asked her about the tree yet?

bb:

Not yet. Do you want to talk about the Joplin tree tonight… wait, I know what you’re going to say. You want me to speak about Heartland USA Tour.

Hucka D. (tucking pollen coated hands underneath chin in a listening position):

Um-hummmm…

bb:

You want to go, don’t you?

Hucka D.:

(big smile)

bb:

We’ll have to see about that.

Hucka D.:

I can sit in the back the whole way. Duck down when cars approach. No one will see me, or at least no one that counts.

bb:

What if we get pulled over for something… never mind, let’s not talk about this right now, the going along part, I mean.

Hucka D.:

And I can’t wait to see Mammoth Cave again.

bb:

Again? Oh right, you can go to Earth at times — forgot that part.

Hucka D.:

Yes, that was to meet Arthur. Remember?

bb:

Sort of. Something about Cub Run Cave as well. Yes, here tis. It was just a short letter, and then you were quickly on to Arkansas, it seems, with Grassy. So you realized something about Hurla Dontbee at the cave’s mouth?

Hucka D.:

I realized I was her as well. Like you are both Baker Bloch and Baker Blinker (blinks).

bb:

Animus and Anima in one, then.

Hucka D.:

Rodeo?

bb:

Wanna talk about that tonight as well?

Hucka D.:

That could have been the end between me and you, baker b. That letter. I could have stayed on Earth, you know.

bb:

*You* made those two create the similar letters, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Egg. (smiles again, a strange smile tonight)

bb:

What does it mean?

Hucka D.:

After 6 [parts of the blog] you thought you were done. Through. You wished to discard me and Baker Bloch and Baker Blinker. Lemon World. Crawl into the cube, I said.

bb:

Yeah, *you* said that.

Hucka D.:

You were typing it.

bb:

Well… that’s just the way it works.

Hucka D.:

Yeah, I’m not quite understanding this post where Baker Bloch enters the cube, then.

bb:

You’re acting a little differently tonight, Hucka D. You sick or sumtin?

Hucka D.:

I’m kind of someone else tonight.

bb:

Hurla Dontbee?

Hucka D.:

*Yes.* I am in Hart.

bb:

Can we or should we talk about your father Kelley more tonight, Hucka D.? I’m sorta fascinated by the possibility that he owned both the Jeogeot and Maebaleia continents at once, the 3rd and 4th ones of SL… I know, I know, you’re going to say Jeogeot is really the second.

Hucka D.:

No. I’ll go along tonight with it being the 3rd and Maebaleia the 4th. I’m easy tonight.

bb:

Plant around?

Hucka D.:

You usually hate when Plant shows up.

bb:

Not true.

Hucka D.:

Yeah, I think so.

bb:

No. I like Mr. Plant. Plant.

Hucka D.:

Well… I don’t think he’s going to show up tonight.

bb:

Wanna speak about Kelley, then?

Hucka D.:

Well…. (blows out air). He’s me. I’m the bank. Cub Run and all. Cabron… Cub Run. It was all me, me, me.

bb:

I think I speculated on that before. So *you* owned the two continents, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Yeah, but I got bored of ’em. I gave it to Chilbo.

bb:

Gave it?

Hucka D. (lackadasical):

Yeahhhh, there were, well, I had some other… wellll…

bb:

Are you saying that you purposely devolved Crabwoo to Chilbol?

Hucka D.:

It was too much, you see. You had to cut it off somewhere.

bb:

Is that why I’m having a harder time putting together the Maebaleia continent story, even though I know something really substantial is there?

Hucka D.:

It’s a future thing mostly. I am a good egg.

bb:

I thought you were going to say “good Square”.

Hucka D.:

Yeah, that too.

bb:

If you don’t mind me asking, where’d you get all the money to buy the continents, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Oh, they weren’t that much. Daddy really gave them to me.

bb:

So there is a daddy involved.

Hucka D.:

There’s always a daddy involved. (speaking to me directly): Daddy.

bb:

Well, can you tell me more about the Maebaleia story, then… tonight?

Hucka D.:

Yeahhhh.

bb:

You sure that [you don’t want] Plant to show up tonight?

Hucka D.:

Nahhh. I can… I can (pause)

bb:

“Hucka D.?” (pause) “Hucka D.?” (pause) Well, it looks like it’s just me again. Maybe I should just theorize on what Hucka Doobie might say about the 4th continent. I know that Gypsy Purse lived on The Moon of the continent, on a sim literally called that. It’s Maebaleia’s equivalent to Mos Ainsley. “Right, Hucka D.?” (pause) Anyway, she isolated herself because of a curse where she appeared as men wanted her to appear. This is like the opening episode of Red Dwarf IV, the pleasure GELF called Camille [shown on Valentine’s Day, 1991]. To Grassy she appeared as a female Mmmmmm, and to Hucka D., she was Hurla Dontbee, except moreso… “right, Hucka D.?” (shorter pause). This caused the squabble which was ultra-exaggerated through the toy avatar-SL avatar conflict at CREEK, culminating in The Wilderness battle where Hucka D. and Grassy squared off directly opposite each other. They were not good eggs on that day. Then to Gene Fade — who moved into the vacuum created by Hucka D. vs. Grassy, in short — she appeared as a female mossman, um, mosswoman. By that time she had isolated herself on her Moon [of Maebaleia]. Karoz was their luv child. Her true form was as the alien, much like the Mos Ainsley alien… figured that out as well. And she also appeared to Gene Fade as the last mosswoman as well… another Red Dwarf borrowing [as he was the last mossman].

So if this is all true, then Blue Feather Douglas must be real as well… the father to Gypsy Purse still? Caused her curse in some way? Akin to Baker Blinker’s Shakenstein related curse? [must be]. “Gypsy created TILE, didn’t she Hucka D.?” (pause) Blue, green, red, then yellow and back to blue. Complete.

(to be continued?)

 

Random Thoughts…

Filed under: Uncategorized — baker Blinker @ 6:21 am

Here’s the wikipedia articles for quark stars and preon stars, in case you’re interested. Quark star and Preon star are the two adjacent sims to Mos Ainsley, in the west and north directions respectively. Both names refer to ultra-dense, hypothetical stars, with preon being denser than quark.

Just thought of this: since in the preon star article, a theoretical continuum of sorts is inferred between quark stars, preon stars, and black holes, could the inferrence be that Mos Ainsley itself actually stands for a black hole? Interesting theory, I believe.

Related quote, then:

A preon star is a proposed type of compact star made of preons, a group of hypothetical subatomic particles. Preon stars would be expected to have huge densities, exceeding [10 to the 23rd power] kilogram per cubic meter—intermediate between quark stars and black holes. A preon star having the same mass as Earth would be about the size of a tennis ball.

Fleep Tuque is really churning out the interesting information recently on her recently overhauled blog, including this fascinating post about copyright/content theft/intellectual property in virtual worlds. I’ll try to write more intelligently on the subject in a future post or two.

Speaking of blogs, I’m also pleased to see that Nish Mip is back to exploring Heterocera (Atoll Continent), as recorded on her Big Orange One blog, and that Sachie Bade is also relaying some of her new explorations on Sachie Bade’s Secondthirdfourth. Gotta luv it. 🙂

Vehicles of Transport, Etc.

After discovering a most probable link between Hucka D.’s so-called Uniko language and Unicode, Baker Bloch heads back over to the Okinu sim on a hunch, only to encounter, upon beaming in randomly, what looks like a question mark without the completing dot. Wasn’t Hucka D. just talking about the key character string “2E2E” being Unicode for a backwards or reversed question mark? I know it to be so.

More glyphs found that same visit.

snapshot1400_003smaller

Nothing happening yet in the Aotearoa sink. No surprise there, though. Still luving the view in the meantime.

snapshot1401_001smaller

Karoz is still over at Mos Ainsley, attempting to find further clues about the link between Uniko, Petemond and his possible alien origin. Here he’s hiking on the circular ridge surrounding the moon base, looking down the other side, away from the base, at some sea patternings there as well. Without the sharp angles of the quite unique Okino glyphs, though. Still pretty neat.

snapshot1404_002smaller

Also on this visit, Karoz finds an abandoned space shuttle in the waters of nearby Byeulddongbyuel, west of Quark star which is, in turn, just west of Mos Ainsley. Karoz immediately recognized it as a Space Base vehicle which you can freely rez there and ride around. Karoz had also heard stories of people flying the vehicles to the mainland. Apparently this one didn’t quite get there. Karoz was further very pleased to find out, after some adjustments, that he himself could resume the flight of this wayward vehicle, and set out not back to Mos Ainsley to return the ship, but further west instead. His idea: see if he could fly it all the way to Chilbo (!).

snapshot1404_006smaller

Now the first try (yes, there were two that night), he made it about 1/2way to Chilbo from Byeulddongbyuel, still a considerable distance. All was well until he found himself automatically rejected after entering a parcel requiring age verification to continue further. The space ship kept going without him. I assumed it derezzed somewhere along the way as well.

snapshot1404_008smaller

But Karoz had the “bug” by then, and enjoyed the only partially successful flight so much that he immediately returned to the Moon Base of Mos Ainsley itself to rez another, identical shuttle. His idea this time was to make it to the protected Korean Channel and then fly more south to reach Chilbo. He almost reached the channel before something went wrong again: as my computer locked up at that instant I was unable to pinpoint the problem, unlike before.

snapshot1404_014smaller

As I said, though, Karoz had some kind of vehicle bug by then, and also decided that night to head over to the Arcadia Asylum library in Cheonma, not far from Chilbo, and purchase whatever drivable/flyable vehicle he could find, all of which he knew would be absolutely free thanks to AA’s full perms/no-profit policy regarding her many builds. He subsequently went to a rez zone on Highway 10 just north, and after some experiments (forklift, etc.), found what he considered a *perfect* complement to the space shuttle’s look and feel in this simple bike, which you wear and ride instead of sit in and ride. He tested it out all the way to Chilbo and then even beyond a bit. My guess is that you’ll soon find a series of Karoz related posts on a bike tour of the continent in one form or another very soon (!). Unlike my other experiences with vehicles, this one — actually both — turned out to be much more satisfying. I certainly don’t expect the focus to be taken away from SL exploration on foot, but biking/shuttle flying (or whatever comes next) may make for a nice kind of complementary way of exploring. And it’s just a lot of fun, which is the ultimate point, I think.

Then shifting back to ol’ hiking Baker, a new structure was found in the Moa sim of Big Sink last night, but one quite familiar in another setting. For it’s the water part of the water/fire temple from Little Robert Plant Variant’s Nowtown, an exact copy sans the stream of lava and resulting steam when it meets the interior water, it appears. And the yoga place is gone, along with the tent just below it as described in this post from only a couple of weeks ago. Shouldn’t be surprised that SL changes so quickly but I always am for some reason.
