“Valley of the Nye”

“Eye in the Rye”

“Eye of the Rye” phrase was looked up night before search for “Valley of the Nye”, which I didn’t realize was phonetically related until I typed in the latter in the search box and saw the former in the drop down history list. No real hits for either phrase.

“In the film Mars Attacks! Martians land in Pahrump and announce that they have “come in peace”, but after a dove flies overhead they attack and kill the humans gathered there. (The scene was actually shot in Burns, Kansas, as was most of the film.)[citation needed]”

“We better start Hucka D., if you’re game tonight.”

Hucka D.:

Game on! Ruuster told you about the Valley of the Nye, eh?

bb:

Well Montelli Vantelli told me about it at what may have been the former location of Ruuster’s, er, roost. Perch, I suppose.

Hucka D.:

No I think Ruuster told you. Valley of the Nye, where you’ll find the Eye of the Rye.

bb:

I don’t know what that means[, though].

Hucka D.:

You should think about it. Eye of the Rye.

bb:

What did csemartin mean by “Eye of Rye” and that Jack Daniels… wait. But he was from Macomb, Illinois, the Corn Fields. That’s Ruuster?

Hucka D.:

Jasper Newton Daniels. Moonshine. Eye of Rye; Valley of Nye.

bb:

I think it is about Rye, New York. Eye of Rye.

Hucka D.:

*You* are from the Valley of Nye. Space Ghost Coast to Coast. Sounds just like Art Bell, pheh.

bb:

He does!

Hucka D.:

Space Ghost is Baker Bloch’s father. He’s from the Valley of Nye.

bb:

I think he was from the Ghost Planet, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Ghost to Ghost, then. Think about it.

bb:

I’m not sure this is going anywhere…

Hucka D.:

Hold on please…

*****

Hucka D.:

We’re getting more information. About Ruuster. R110.

bb:

Yes?

Hucka D.:

15 steps and then a big drop.

bb:

Abomination? By chance?

Hucka D.:

Defeat of the Linden Grid. Olean… sorry. Hilo Peak was seen as the highest of the low[, then]. Ancient return.

bb:

I still haven’t much of a clue about the nature of this Ruuster. Is this the same as The Bill?

Hucka D.:

It is.

bb:

What’s Ruuster’s relationship to the Comma Islands?

Hucka D.:

He created everything. *Everything*.

bb:

He seems a bit important, then.

Hucka D.:

God. Ra. Rye. Nye. Eye. Ra.

Careful where you stand, Baker Bloch. Remember your knees aren’t what they use to be!

Odder thoughts… well, just more thoughts… June 29, 2010

Gene Fade is the user behind Bracket Jupiter. A key link: both are from Jupiter, Bracket from the actual planet, and Gene Fade, aka “Mossman”, from Jupiter Rock, named so because of the presence of a large red “spot” on its surface.

Hucka D.:

So you found that part out as well now. You are moving quite fast lately!

bb:

Making up time for not having the best of computers to explore Second Life for so long, Hucka D. Not a problem now, especially in contrast to before.

Hucka D.:

With new abilities comes new problems. What does it mean that Gene Fade is the user of Bracket Jupiter? What are the implications?

bb:

Not sure. Oh, and Karoz, described mainly as Gene Fade’s son, created the fuchsia diamond as a wedding present for the King and Queen — King being the same as Bracket Jupiter here. Another “red spot” of sorts. You use to be able to see the fuchsia diamond as a reddish colored dot on the map of the Heatherwood sim.

Hucka D.:

Karoz was trained to be a jeweler, and then recruited by Bracket Jupiter or The King for this purpose, yes. But there was more.

bb:

Karoz was also the avatar of Gene Fade?

Hucka D.:

*Yes*. They had the same user. Two different stories; fused ending. Fuchsia.

bb:

We only have about 2 1/2 more years to wrap all this up, Hucka D. (laughs).

Hucka D.:

You’re getting more pieces. And then you should [create] the glossary. That’ll help. And more maps.

bb:

How about the castle in Piren Bistrano?

Hucka D.:

A forest was set up to protect and isolate. The castle existed mainly alone from mainland. It could, yes, communicate with Corsica across the small void there. A tunnel was even created. Kind of a cross between a pipe and a tunnel, really. The Piren Bistrano peninsula had a relationship of some kind with the Comma Islands before the Linden grid. (pause)

bb:

What of the Diamond Islands?

Hucka D.:

The what?

bb:

Oh, I seem to have jumped ahead in time somehow. It’s those chain of islands extending to the east of the peninsula we’ve been talking about, still on the Nautilus continent. Maybe… sorry.

Hucka D.:

Maybe the Queen’s broach is a [representation] of the Nautilus continent.

bb:

Of going… dang!

Hucka D.:

Of going beyond Nautilus, or so The Bill thought.

bb:

Maybe Ray the brainard is from Red Marsh (!)

Hucka D.:

That “bit of green” use to be the green head of Brainard. He picked the spot because of the proximity to the 2 seas. As you have Jupiter on the Comma Islands, so you have Mars on Corsica Prime just west of them.

bb:

In checking, my new digs on the Comma Islands (Intromoto) is just as close to Red Marsh, seemingly, as my Ephant rental was before.

Hucka D.:

No going back. But you did what you had to do. Waste.

bb:

Alright. So… er, did Bracket Jupiter *find* the head Brainard in Red Marsh, perhaps stuck in a hole in the ground?

Hucka D.:

*Yes*. Comet. It was his undoing. Or not.

bb:

This was after the marriage to the Queen. Hmmm… that image is almost worth creating a fake collage for, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

That really long peninsula Red Marsh is on (not the much smaller one with the Piren Bristano castle, mind you) wanted to become the 3rd Comma Island, but the isthumus that Red Marsh is a part of kept it a peninsula.

bb:

In the past… what is happening to our speech patterns??

Hucka D.:

In the past, this was different. A canal. Martian canal. Chronicled for the future.

bb:

I wonder if the King attempted to create the canal? Why would he want a 3rd Comma Island to be legitimized? (pause) Maybe to give it to Karoz, his son, or figurative son?

Hucka D.:

There’s [yet] another King you haven’t dealt with yet. The strait your friend ujiyasu describes here separated the two realms of Comma Islands and Corsica Prime. It could have been a battle ground but it was not. Jupiter and Mars.

bb:

The King began his wanderings!

Hucka D.:

Leaving the Queen behind at Comma Islands to rule. And…

bb (jumping ahead again):

Ephant.

Hucka D.:

Yes, something was at Ephant. Laughing at him (laughs here).

bb:

I’m still not convinced he didn’t just write off Corsica Prime as a lost, barren cause.

Hucka D.:

Greentown. New-found-land.

bb:

Thank you.

Swindon, a place of death

Ruustre!

 

Why Ms. Blinker! (&, oh yeah, the other Baker on Nautilus) June 28, 2010

Filed under: Nautilus Continent,Ruuster's Peninsula — baker Blinker @ 9:12 am

So Baker Blinker is back from Temple Farm, Wiltshire, and with a new look (!) Why the change? Basically Baker Blinker will be in charge of promoting both the Edwardston Station Gallery and the Blue Feather Gallery, and in such a position and interacting with the public in a larger way, I thought a makeover was due. I didn’t want to change the color of her skin — that would take away the essential Blinker-ness, I think — but I do really like the new, gray hair, with subtle, accompanying outfit of purple shirt, white pants and grey sneakers. I believe she looks quite fetching if I say so myself, more like Baker Blinker should actually appear virtually. Baker Bloch is impressed as well, and desires his own makeover — he’s demanding a goatee for now. We’ll see what we can do. And Hucka Doobie may not be far behind with the do-over requests.

A follow-up thought: is the attached curse over for Baker Blinker because of the new appearance? I’ll have to think about that further.

For those who don’t know, Baker Blinker is actually my oldest SL avatar, and the Baker who was still the dominant one when this blog was created in 2008. Thus the name “Baker Blinker’s Blog”. Yes, I was originally a woman in SL, and the RL wife was a SL male avatar — still is, what little she’s inworld. For me, gradually dominance switched over to the other, slightly newer Baker (Baker Bloch), a change especially catalyzed with the move to the mainland and Rubi; this would be around August 2008, or about a half year after my initial immersion into this virtual world.

*****

Meanwhile, Baker *Bloch* has been exploring the upper reaches of the Nautilus continent, specially those areas closest in proximity to the Comma Islands and attached sea. Still, at the closest, an empty area several sims wide separates the 2 continents at these points.

Basically I sent Mr. Bloch there to see if there’s any possible spillover mythology coming from the direction of Comma Islands, perhaps in another future to past movement that Hucka D. claims is quite common in this virtual reality. Not sure if he found anything like that, but there was this really nice forest covering almost the entire sim of Molvena.

Circle of rocks within this forest — Baker doesn’t think it is a legitimate portal upon closer inspection, unlike a similar circle of rocks within the Villeneuve forest, say. But, come to think of it, they are on the same continent…

To the west of Molvena, in Lusiana, there’s a lot of empty beach space.

To the northwest of Molvena extends a largish peninsula of perhaps about 8 sims worth of land. The centerpiece is a castle apparently both created and owned by an avatar with the alliterative moniker of of Montelli Vantelli.

If further clues about the nature of the Comma Islands and pre-Linden governments is forthcoming from this area, it might be attached to this quite interesting castle and accompanying structures. More soon, possibly!

 

Red Mars(h), Ephant…

Filed under: Corsica Continent,Ephant — baker Blinker @ 9:04 am

So after Hucka D. and I chatted about a considerable number of things this night, ending with vague references to Red Mars and Red Marsh, I decided to revisit the Red Marsh sim through Baker Bloch. As in my first visit, I left none-too-impressed. But I found it interesting that the occupied plot closest to the center of the sim is called “Bit of Green”, a small but quite nice landscaped environment. Strong echoes of Bradbury’s Martian Cronicles and Greentown remained in Baker Bloch’s head as he walked the grounds, recalling that the 1948 short story “Mars is Heaven!”, later retooled as the 6th chapter of the Martian Chronicles (1950), is set in Greentown, another “bit of green”, if you will, in an otherwise barren “red” landscape.

While in the general vicinity, Baker decides to also drop in on his old Ephant rental to see what’s happening there. Seeing his old rental house available, he contemplates renewing his Ephant virtual existence — until he notices that the rental box is actually locked, as are the others also owned by BeyCor Estates in the same sim. Looks like another casualty of massive SL downsizing, like Baker has seen a lot of lately (Lill Burn Valley/Felix Meritis monastery, Pine Tree Square and Teasdale, the Kahruval Forest, and so on and so on); no return to Ephant as it was is now possible.

 

“More. Begin…

Filed under: Uncategorized — baker Blinker @ 8:00 am

… now.”

bb:

I will, Hucka D. Not sure how.

Hucka D.:

Read the book again. Not reed… read.

bb:

I red it.

Hucka D.:

Red it again. (pause) 3 parts. Reed in the park. The book is in the park.

bb:

Hucka D., I think the reel energy may be in the other book. Can I say it?

Hucka D.:

That’s in The Oracle too. You’re right in part. Parts. Mississippi.

bb:

Is that a part of the Grassy influence?

Hucka D.:

Could be. You assess your limitations. You fess up. Grassy is partly correct. Hard to swallow [pretend gulp here].

bb:

Thanks for that. What of crop circles?

Hucka D.:

That’s a main thing as well.*

bb:

Green Town. Red Planet. Red Mars. Red Marsh?

*****

bb:

“Reality company”. Well, let’s just leave it in there.

*****

bb:

I’m going back to Red Mars(h).*

Hucka D.:

See you there (smiles).

“Let’s start…

Filed under: Uncategorized — baker Blinker @ 7:51 am

… with Kent then.”

Hucka D.:

A book was dipped in red and then cut. 3 parts. Continent. 3-6. Spelling [bee]. New Babble. Olean… (pause)

bb:

Mathematical, then?

Hucka D.:

Mathema.

bb:

Is this related to the Book of Psalms that Charles Nelson Blinkerton — you, anyway (!) — was working on. Red Squirt 7 I believe he called the project.

Hucka D.:

I cannot answer that [yet].

bb:

Is it TILE? TILE Creek?

Hucka D.:

Yes?

bb:

A book from the father.

Hucka D.:

*Yes*.

bb:

One park retained the memory of the father, the other chose not to do so and didn’t see him/it as the father.

Hucka D.:

Frank and Herman Parks, yes.

bb:

The father is TILE Creek.

Hucka D.:

The father is the book is the creek.

bb:

But it is just that surface connection? The 2 Hermans which are 1 Herman?

Hucka D.:

More. Begin now.

 

“Let’s…

Filed under: Uncategorized — baker Blinker @ 7:43 am

… start.”

bb:

Noru is the main place to be [starting]. I know this sim better than any in SL besides Rubi, perhaps. Spent more time there, I mean.

Hucka D.:

A place to start, to begin.

bb:

We have a mountain. Devised or created by the equivalent of The Devil.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

It is set in motion. Mountain becomes Hill.

Hucka D.:

Why?

bb:

Is it the onset of the Linden grid, perhaps. Lime equals Linden? Even at the beginning things get complicated.

Hucka D.:

On one side, we have Mountain creation, balanced by Mound, really. 32. Tiles are equally placed. Wormholes.

bb:

Mountain is in Ancient times, pre-Linden.

Hucka D.:

Like the true Blue Feather. See?

bb:

The Blue Feather is more a concept than a virtually physical gallery. Handed down…

Hucka D.:

Handed on to those who care and want it to continue. Others care but not as much as with their own [stuff]. (pause) You must let [delete name] claim the United States. From the beginning, the start. From the beginning and start fess up and say what you’ve been doing — hiding. You, baker b. Fess up and take any consequences. Truth or Consequences.

bb:

I see this happening 8 years down the road. 8 1/2 [Chilbolton to Crabwood].

Hucka D.:

In the meantime, many more squaring the circles will happen or take place. Tiles.

bb:

Already we teeter totter on the edge.

Hucka D.:

I will play a game with Grassy instead of waging war.

bb:

Let’s start with Kent, then.

 

Untitled…

“Plans for The End, Hucka D.”

Hucka D.:

I will be a star (!)

bb:

I see how all of this most of this, some of this is preparation for that other thing. Grassy must be involved. We must talk of The End.

Hucka D.:

I agree!

bb:

What of the Blue Feather Gallery?

Hucka D.:

You already know the answer. Illegal art will shut doors. Illegal art will open doors. Star!

bb:

I see art as information.

Hucka D.:

Others see it as style or decoration. Check out the works of others and it will be better. You are doing some good things. The Blue Feather Gallery, currently, is in the correct position. And you must think of SL as a whole — people are leaving, going other places. SL was the realm of the small time creator who could rise to a position of prominence. With the whole opening of the 3d web, this prominence will be harder to attain. Everyone will be a star. But not like me, har har!

bb:

You are star of stars, Hucka D. (smiles) Without you… well…

Hucka D. :

Doomed!

bb:

Yes, doomed. But you do not see all just most or some. We need Grassy or the equivalent.

Hucka D.:

A large, psychic battle will take place. Not really a war [but a battle]. We will use SL locations.

*****

bb:

In looking back over this text, Hucka D., I get the impression that the energy of The Wilderness battle [between you and Grassy in the past, at TILE Creek] is being displaced in the future to this harmless, playful affair.

Hucka D.:

Yes! He is northern and I am southern.

bb:

I’m going to have to understand that [comparison] better.

*****

bb:

We must prepare.

Hucka D.:

Let’s start.
