Wider than the sea… December 4, 2009

Filed under: Greenup Yd.,Hucka D.,Yd Island — baker Blinker @ 11:10 am

“I miss Plant, Hucka D.”

Hucka D.:

You wanna speak to him?

bb:

Is that the Sunklands guy again? Greenup Yd.?

Hucka D.:

Yeah. Here he or she or it is.

Greenup Yd.:

Hello baker Beach.

bb:

Hmmm… you use my real name, like Plant use to do.

Greenup Yd.:

Still does. How do you like me so far?

bb:

You mean the island?

Greenup Yd.:

Yes. Me.

bb:

Well, it’s really quite fascinating in places. Maybe — dare I say — the most interesting place yet I’ve lived at in Second Lyfe. I supposed I’ve also “y-ed” SL now, Greenup Yd..

Greenup Yd.:

I am/ am not Vileness Flats.

bb:

The giant fish… yes, I was going to ask about that tonight.

Greenup Yd.:

I am not the fish. Yet I am. Inside-out. Feet on the ground and up in the air.

bb:

Greenup and yellow down, then.

Greenup Yd.:

I am a measure. The Measure.

bb:

Hucka D. mentioned that the Vileness fish is color blind, but in the impossible green-yellow spectrum. That is, as Hucka D. put it, if Vileness fish could drive a car, he would be constantly running through yellow lights with no hesitation, thinking they were green. Maybe you have the same vision problem, then?

Greenup Yd.:

Nes. Yo.

bb:

Dyslexic. Don’t worry, I am too a bit. Very often, I’ll write in this blog that something is east of something else and I’ll recheck and see it is west.

Greenup Yd.:

The fish is a bird [then].

bb:

When I told Hucka D. that green-yellow is not a true color blindness condition (most commonly red-green but sometimes blue-yellow), he countered, unperturbed, by saying there’s also a blue-red color blindness…

Greenup Yd.:

Fish. Fish. (pause) Fish.

bb:

Physh?

Hucka D.:

We better tuck him back in for the night. The Island, ladies and gents. You’re going to see he likes to measure things in yards, perhaps fabric.

bb:

Nice. I assume you want me to go back to The Measure soon.

Hucka D.:

Go every night if you wish. You’ll see how Yd Island is more interesting than the more planned Nautilus City Island, at least now and in the present.

bb:

Oh… what about Rabbit Head??

Hucka D.:

That’s a direct carryover or imprint from Big Sink and Sunklands. To remember them by. It’s a Bozho.

bb:

Bunny Boy mentions Nanabozho, Hucka D.*

Hucka D.:

Bunny Boy is one smarter f*cker.

bb (playfully reprimanding):

Hucka D.! I’ve never heard you use foul language.

Hucka D.:

Fowl.

bb:

And I think you’re going to say…

Hucka D. (interrupting):

The Numbers, right. You can see them in [this picture], on one of the ears.** 28064212.

bb:

About the same time as a lunar cycle[, then].

Hucka D.:

It is the same. It is The Moon. Sun and Moon as one and all and all in one.

bb:

Obviously, Hucka D., I had to get rid of The Sun in my move to Yd Island. Still have The Moon, though.

Hucka D.:

The Sun must return sometime.***

bb:

Can we talk more of the Vileness fish tonight?

Hucka D. (measured):

Green. Red. Blue. (pause) Yellow. Green. (pause) Red. Blue.

bb:

TILE, then?

Hucka D.:

Better end. Save me a waffle iron.

bb:

Oh… ok. Goodnight.

Hucka D.:

Goodnight.

  1. […] Flats, or a flat fish?), but I suppose it is, or at least a representation of such. See also here for this. I also suppose my Yd Island property has just inched up a little in value. Think I’ll stay […]
