“Hucka D…”

Hucka D.:

As the title says… (pause)

bb:

Good evening to you, Hucka D. We have new eyes.

Hucka D.:

Eyes, ears, speech. 3-n-1. Foreign One.

bb:

Do you wish, then, to talk about “One Pink”?

Hucka D.:

Eyes open. Irwin. Peeks through. Two lips. Ear to hear. Wassup.

bb (joking):

Not much.

Hucka D.:

Greenup… let’s talk[, then].

bb:

Switching the subject just a bit, can you tell me about the relationship between England’s Lake District and the Lake District of Maebaleia?

Hucka D.:

I want to say something… but I shouldn’t.

bb:

You were going to say something rude. Weren’t you?

Hucka D. (denying):

No. (shaking head) No.

bb:

Where’s your pollen ball that use to be on your hand? (laughs)

Hucka D. (still shaking head, laughing as well):

Don’t start with me.

bb (after a pause):

So, Hucka D. I’m just going to take a look through the Greenup series quickly… hold on. First off, what is Billville?

Hucka D.:

Oh, you know.

bb:

I know that it’s suppose to represent the central mound of Greenup 02. The one with the teeny Brazil flag on top. The one the giant purple martin is lasering, shall we say, with his yellow ray.

Hucka D. (repeating):

Ray.

bb:

I think it is a moment of conception. A meeting of male, solar energy with female lunar energy, like sunrays in a cool bowl or container.

Hucka D.:

Oleanistantinople.

bb:

Hucka D., I wish you wouldn’t start with that. I’m having enough problems with the *cat* tonight.

Hucka D.:

Casey? Oh he’s a beauty doll.

bb:

It’s actually a she, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

You call him… her… a beauty boy all the time.

bb:

Yeah, it’s just a little joke. Gender confusion. Like Baker Blinker and Baker Bloch.

Hucka D.:

Ooooh. Am I a woman to you, then, baker b.?

bb:

No. Let’s get back to the subject. No more of the “O” word, though. OK?

Hucka D. (obliging):

Alright.

bb:

Billville, seemingly, is conceived in Greenup 02. The darkness in Greenup 03 is the darkness of the womb, as perceived by the growing embryo. Then dawn arrives in Greenup 04. The birth is about to start. In Greenup 05 we are there. Back in the sun of the father, but in the body of the mother.

Hucka D.:

Couldn’t have said it better myself. A-O-K.

bb:

Martin is on the mound holding the Brazil flag. Proudly, it seems. The mound, a new addition to the collage series so far, is from Oklahoma, Esau Junction to be precise. Oh wait, actually it’s the same mound as in Greenup 01. No… wait…

Hucka D.:

Why don’t you just put a picture of the original photos. Can you find them still?

bb:

Unsure, Hucka D. Hold on…

*****

“I’m not sure it’s still on the web. Maybe not.”

Hucka D.:

Then you have a unique work, then. Good you stole. (smiles)

bb:

Greenup 05 and Greenup 06 make the first animation in the 10×10. (Simpson’s) Martin turns into (George) Martin. Beatles move from color back to black and white. Moving back in time, then. We follow the yellow submarine back in time, back to the hole in the wall. Tunnel.

Hucka D.:

It says Millboro. What the heck is that? (snickers)

bb:

That’s the past, I suppose. And the future.

Hucka D. (again, innocently):

What are those three lights in the tunnel. Look out! Here comes trainie.

bb:

I never really thought of that, Hucka D. But it’s three lights. It’s suppose to be diamonds, like Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds. And we have the Sgt. Pepper album in jigsaw form before the old Beatles. A jigsaw piece mirrors the jigsaw nature of the creek in the Greenup valley.

Hucka D.:

Side for you[, then] and side for me?

bb:

Maybe, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

What is the significance of Esau Junction in these pictures, baker b.? Why is it inserted in the heart of this quaint Greenup valley. Replacing that mound in Greenup 02, it seems.

bb:

Yes, the mound again. Bill’s Mound. Billville.

Hucka D.:

So in Greenup 07, we’re seeing through the tunnel toward the approaching yellow submarine, heading down the Greenup Gill toward us. But it has turned into a boat, the same one as in Greenup 04. Do you need to rest your fingers?

bb:

No… tis OK. Cat’s asleep finally.

Hucka D.:

So sweet.

bb:

Yes. In looking at it, the source of the 3 lights in Greenup 06 becomes obvious as we stare from the other direction. It is diamonds for sure, glints of a stack of them. And the glints out of line just like the same in Greenup 06. Obviously the same.

Hucka D.:

Good work. But really, let’s see… aren’t they the United States?

bb:

US… yes. America. Or Amereca.

Hucka D.:

Meramec Caverns, then. And then you exit the same toward the end. Greenup 19, as I’m checking. That’s the same mound through the mouth of the tunnel in both. And there’s the stack of books with the apple on top again. Martin’s apple and books. (pause) This is coming and going. From the same place, the same mound.

bb:

Yes, obviously. It was planned that way, though. Not accident or synchronicity.

Hucka D.:

You were asking about Billville earlier. The Bill.

bb:

We’ve talked a number of times now about Lemon, which seems to be the same as Lennon of the Beatles…

Hucka D. (interrupting):

No… variant.

bb:

Right, variant. So it’s Lemon from The Beetles instead of Lennon from The Beatles. But in the blog he’s credited for bringing The Bill to Sunklands, or allowing them to enter Sunklands. Lennon is the largest of the China dolls of Greenup 05.

Hucka D.:

The Bill came and organized things a bit better. Peter was buried in his mound, but then, several days later, he was back and in Aotearoa. Petemond to Pietmond to Piedmont. He erased memories of his burial in Otaki Gorge. Instead he pointed to the cemetery on the east end of the newer Petemond or — you know. The pool with the fallen tombstone in it. Blue Pool. Pool of The Dead it was called. Billalex… Gillalex. Bill’s Gill. Stonethrow.

*****

“I think Greenup 06 depicts a Beatles (Beetles?) joined together again. Separate yet joined here, as in a jigsaw puzzle. Greenup 05, in Greenup 05, the puzzle is pulled apart and the pieces separated. China dolls equal jigsaw puzzle pieces. 4 in each case.”

Hucka D.:

We are heading back in time (from Greenup 05 to Greenup 06), true enough.

bb:

From color back to black and white. Like The Beatles on Ed Sullivan. Before the colors of Sgt. Pepper. Like old TV shows, then.

Hucka D.:

Exactly like that.

bb:

Then, to continue, in Greenup 08 we have a type of birth. The 3 diamond glints become 3 referees, all taking turns shaking hands with Coach K. K. A much smaller martin bird looks on, through a looking glass, with a glinty diamond-like eye himself or herself. This appears to be a lunar martin, the counterpart to the (much larger) solar martin in Greenup 02. The eye is also the star Vega, also present in Greenup 03. The purple martin here seems to be a representation of purple or black-ish night, Hucka D., and its stars. All in one.

But then, on the other side of the (Greenup) valley, seemingly, the jigsaw puzzle pieces representing the 4 Beatles have moved into the future, the White Album, Abbey Road, and beyond, into the solo years for the group’s members. Past 1970 then… almost here but not quite. And there is The Diamonds again, in the shape of a mountaintop restaurant this time. Wheeler 04 is set very near the same location (in Missouri).

Hucka D.:

Therein lies the mysteries. The Diamonds. Cars parked and avatars within. Ole…

bb (quickly interrupting):

We better say goodnight, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Oh… OK. Goodnight baker b. Thanks.

bb:

Thank you.

Hucka D.:

See you in the booth.

bb:

Right. We’ll try again perhaps tomorrow night.

Hucka D.:

Thanks again.
