“Not you, I assume…”

Plant:

No. I entered a sim in dramatic fashion sometimes[, though].

bb:

I found Trees, Louisiana, Mr. Plant.

Hucka D.:

There ya go. Treemonisha.

bb:

Hi Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Hi. Trees. Treemonisha. Texarkana. Joplin.

bb:

I wonder, really, how many black avatars there are in SL? Or Hispanic? Lots and lots of white folks, it seems. A relative Crackerbarrel of virtual skins.

Hucka D.:

Weeelllll…

bb:

Let’s see, in our little family we have a 1/2 man, 1/2 ghost (Baker Bloch), I assume, a 1/2 man, 1/2 woman (Wilsonia), a moss being (Karoz), a pink woman (Baker Blinker), a 1/2 Irish lass, 1/2 cardboard entity (Esbum, since derezzed), and, well you, a bee. That’s diversity!

Hucka D.:

I’m part man as well. And inside, yes, a black child. Black like the color, though, not the race. [But] I grew up in Pudding Hole as a black woman of color. And Pieland.

bb:

Through Baker Blinker, I experienced some harrassment. That’s one of the big reasons I switched to Baker Bloch when moving to the mainland. Baker Blinker harrassment. They leave Blochs alone, for the most part, although a couple of comments have been made about his red Space Ghost arm bands. Nothing really mean minded, I don’t think. Just comments, like, yeah, I know where you got those. Ok, great. We’re all collages of skins and objects.

Hucka D.:

Don’t go down that road.

bb:

I’m all for creating a Third Life within and inside 2nd Life, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

I’m with you! But not as a replacement.

bb:

No. Race seems to mean little in SL. I’m not sure it’s about race, except as new races, perhaps, like Furries, which is an interesting mythology. And, say, the ability to be a child in SL.

Strange. The only thing I’ve noticed transferring directly from SL to RL is my greater tolerance of heights, now that I’m use to being up in the air a lot in SL. What I mean is that my fear of heights has *partially* been conquered through virtual reality. But for appearance, I usually form a SL identity quite quickly, and change it little. Others keep tinkering with theirs… much of their SL, apparently, is about changing and modifying the avatar’s look… shopping for clothes, etc. Like a glorified barbie doll, almost.

Another SL concert link for ya, Hucka D. “Hucka D., you gone again?” I do like the idea of projecting a RL event onstage. Like this Cat Concerto. “You seen this, Hucka D.? Hilarious!”

Plant:

I’m back. We need to talk about the Joplin Tree more sometime. I was the caretaker.

bb:

So there was a tree in the center of Big Sink?

Plant:

You need to figure out why me, Little Robert Plant Variant, now just Robert Plant Variant — no Little (!) — gave up the tube and moved to Big Sink.

bb:

The tube is the tree seed? Think I speculated on that before with Hucka D.

Plant:

You speculated Persimmon [tree].

bb:

Yeah. Golf clubs. 9th hole and 18th hole. Black Behind. What would Bunny Boy be in SL? Obviously some kind of Furry, like on the picture at the actual SL Rabbit Hole.

Plant:

Peter. He was there and square.

bb:

Plant, do you know about Hucka D.’s ownership of the Jeogeot continent?

Plant:

Yes.

bb:

Did you know he owned it? *Did* he in fact?

Plant:

Yes. He owned Jeogeot. And the other one, the Japanese one.

bb:

Maebaleia.

Plant:

Yes, I think. Connected through the Rabbit Hole in olden days. Pre-Linden or PL, as they say. Lemon Days.

bb:

Really? That’s what they called them?

Plant:

Yes. “Squeeze a lemon” meant “have a great day”.

bb:

Interesting. Were you taught about St. Lemon of Troy?

Plant:

Part of my initiation at Lill Burn (Valley).

bb:

Who are the Bill or what is The Bill?

Hucka D.:

We better end. Thanks for the Cat Concerto link, baker b.

bb:

You’re welcome. Bye Plant.

*****

“I had to come back and make a couple more comments about this. I know what the influence is now!

Hucka D.:

Careful. [Plant be] careful.

Plant:

47. Pomona. Monkey. Phone. Answer it.

Woman on phone:

Blue Feather Gallery, how may I help you with your art needs today?
