We Must Press More Forward, Hucka D. December 7, 2009

Filed under: Greenup Yd.,Hucka D.,Toy Avatars,Yd Island — baker Blinker @ 9:30 am

Greenup Yd.:

Hi baker Beach.

bb:

Hello. How are you?

Greenup Yd.:

I am.

bb:

That’s good.

Greenup Yd.:

Yes.

bb:

Do you wish to talk about the hole tonight?

Greenup Yd.:

I am in it. You are in it. All are in.

bb:

In love?

Greenup Yd.:

I am VILE.

bb:

But you flip that around and you have LOVE.

Greenup Yd.:

You will not be able to get in at this moment. Sealed.

bb:

I know. When will I be able to get in?

Greenup Yd.:

28 days.

bb:

About a month[, then]. Do you know about the loss of The Sun, which is the same as The Temple?

Hucka D.:

I am here. Yes, that Sun loss is causing problems already, baker b. I think you must reinstate the temple. The power of The Hole is strong in your region. Wind and such.

bb:

I could rent the second 1024 in the sim and build the temple there, or just put it on top of the ESG, like I had it in Ichalon [for one].

Hucka D.:

That might be good. (pause)

bb:

How long will I stay on Yd Island? I know that’s a dumb question.

Hucka D.:

28 days.

bb:

Then, er, I’ll go into the opened hole?

Hucka D.:

No. You will go home.

bb:

To Jeogeot?

Hucka D.:

Yes. This is not your true home. Baker Bloch’s I mean.

bb:

Should I stay in Sunklands?

Hucka D.:

I can’t tell you. Won’t you miss the Aotearoa sink?

bb:

Yes. But there’s isolation [to it].

Hucka D.:

The hole will open in 28 days. You have 28 days.

bb:

Yes. Greenup Yd. already told me. How did you run upon this entity again?

Hucka D.:

Greenup Yd. is the spirit of Yd. Island and also The Hole. And maybe Nautilus City Island as well. And the surrounding seas or oceans. Not Blake Sea, though. I don’t think. Not the entire Nautilus continent either. Mostly Yd Island, then, I suppose. He wrote a book about it.

bb:

Yd Island?

Hucka D.:

Drink Lake is the same as the sea surrounding Yd Island, as you’ve already speculated about.

bb:

Tell me the relationship — more about it, if you can…

Hucka D.:

VILE caused it.

bb:

VILE is the same as Greenup Yd., though.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

Someone at the end of last week requested a student file named Parsons, which we couldnt’ find despite looking in 3 different collections. I thought about Parsons Vale, which is on the other side of the Mmmmmm’s homeground, thinking they might be related.

Hucka D.:

You have a vague equivalent of Rabbit Head in that homeground.

bb:

I suppose if I rent that other 1024 in Villeneuve, I would live symbolically on the shores of Drink Lake, perhaps at Drink Lake Beach where Grassy was sunning that one day I took pictures of him.

Hucka D.:

No Drink Lake Dam in this [Second Lyfe] reality, though.

bb:

There was a point when I was hiking around today (I went to Drink Lake today), when I looked up in the meadow and thought, this is just like looking up from Rabbit Head in Ratzenberger to the above ridge. There was even a protuberance near the top, just like in this photo. Couldn’t really make out what it was — maybe a bale of hay. Not a cow, though, although they were in the meadow in other places.

Hucka D.:

You have 28 days. We better end.

bb;

Thank you both.

 

Yd Island: Central Ridge

Filed under: Yd Island — baker Blinker @ 2:59 am

Baker Bloch at Rabbit Head, staring back toward the Edwardston Station Gallery using longer draw distance. Texture of cube is somewhat similiar to that of the 8 sided tower to the left of Blochs here — probably nothing.

Rabbit Head and ESG from a different angle. Good shot of the east side of the Villeneuve forest.

On the high Yd Island ridge itself now, in, let’s see, along the middle of the western line of Nelleman, just east of Crespo (in turn, just east of Ratzenberger).

Still in Nelleman but quite close to Sospiri, where ridge continues its high ways. Elevation here is about 150 meters. To contrast, Ratzenberger’s Rabbit Head is between about 65 (north) and 80 meters (south), and the ESG property in Villeneuve is at around 45 meters.

In Leelight now, at the end of the land representing the highest plateau part of the ridge. From here on to the north, it’s downhill to the surrounding sea. But the beige landscape will continue along the ridge for about another sim before yielding to green again.

 

Around The Hole, 01

TEXT SOON.

 

Yd Island, Random…

Filed under: Yd Island — baker Blinker @ 2:49 am

Cottage with telephone lines mysteriously running through it in Cevert immediately west of Ratzenberger.

Just in roaming around, Baker Bloch finds himself all the way out at Brigantine Island several sims east of Yd Island. Three signs concerning the Blake Sea region put up by the Linden moles is all that’s on the small island besides some grass. Nice, anyway… private. But Baker decides he doesn’t want to push further into the Blake Sea right now. For some reason, it’s never been a big draw for him, despite the obvious aesthetic qualities. But for the curious, here’s more info about it. Maybe it’s because Baker isn’t much of a boat person… dunno.

Then back to Yd Island for this shot of a mansion in Wodka. Baker is standing in a parcel called Walker Land Public Spaces, but he didn’t have enough time remaining that night to find out more about this idea.

Glyphs in The Measure. More on those soon as well.
