New Blue Feather location? Not quite. October 10, 2010

The 2nd (of 3) Noru version of the Blue Feather gallery seems to fit quite well as a skybox on the Greentop property in Asha. Admittedly I’m have a hankering again to invite a guest or two to show some of their work on the main level, as I did for several SL artists in Noru. A logical choice would be mainland Corsica artists, I suppose. But the problem: I don’t really have enough prims to spare for this option. The Wheeler-Jasper series, the last series of my 10×10 (1st series is now in House Greenup on the Greentop grounds) will possibly still be exhibited on the lower level, as before. In the tower (“Tower of TILE”) is still exhibited “Baker Bloch in England”, a country which he visited this past spring.

On the horizon is a return to England for Baker, this time in a different spot. Can’t wait; I know exactly where it’ll start.

Let’s bring in Hucka D. just because we can. “Hucka?”

Greentop:

Hello.

bb:

New spirit — great. Hi Greentop. 🙂

Greentop:

🙂

bb:

Are you the spirit of my new property?

Greentop:

Yup. (pause) Hi.

bb:

Hi. (pause) Hucka D. not around tonight?

Greentop:

Nope.

Hucka D.:

Hey, baker b.

bb:

Oh hi. You know Greenup? Greentop, I mean?

Hucka D.:

Greentop is here?

bb:

I was just talking to him.

Hucka D.:

He came early. He said he wasn’t prepared.

bb:

Greentop? You still around? [no answer] Wonder if he’ll show up again?

Hucka D.:

He has to. Or not.

bb:

What’s going on with you, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Making chalk again. Colored chalk.

bb:

Nice. What’s your favorite color, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Blue. Green and blue. Red and green and blue. And yellow.

bb:

TILE, then.

Hucka D.:

Yup. Oh here’s Greentop again.

Greentop:

Hi.

bb:

Hey again.

Greentop:

Nice night.

bb:

Yes it is. Quite warm here in [delete state]. Are you in Asha right now, Greentop?

Greentop:

Always. Asha always.

bb:

So you’re the same as the property.

Greentop:

I am the highest of the green. Purest green.

Hucka D.:

Do you know who was born yet on top of Greentop, baker b.?

bb:

Ummm, I’m guessing…

Hucka D.:

Yes?

bb:

Guessing…

Greentop:

Right?

bb:

The first Mmmmmm? Am I close?

Hucka D.:

Ding ding ding ding ding ding ding. Yes!

Greentop:

Ha ha ha ha!

Hucka D.:

Ho ho he he!

Greentop:

Woo woo!! (claps, then pause)

bb:

Wow, that was some reaction guys. Are you finished?

Greentop:

Never. But: yes.

Hucka D.:

But: yes.

bb:

You guys twins or sumtin?

Hucka D.:

Yes. He said he wasn’t ready.

bb:

Are you Castor and Pollution?

Greentop:

Woo woo!

Hucka D.:

Yes!

bb:

Hmm. Is the…

Hucka D. (interrupting again):

Yes? (pause)

bb (quickly):

Grassy Noll?

[no reaction] (pause)

bb:

Guys?

Grassy Noll:

It’s been a longer time baker Beach? baker b. I finally got out of the super Wal-Mart in Big 4 with my Pink Floyd CD. I had fishnet nylon stuck to both my legs but I’m OK. I had it removed with alcohol.

bb:

Well, nice to have you back Grassy. 🙂

Grassy:

🙂

bb:

Are you the same as the Grassy who use to speak on this blog? Back in, I don’t know, starting in 2008 and I guess we also spoke in 2009, if you are the same as him. Don’t think we have in over a year, though?

Grassy Noll:

I am Grassy Too.

bb:

Grassy II?

Grassy Noll:

Yes.

bb:

Were you Peter’s playmate in Asha, as I’ve theorized?

Grassy:

Yes. I am the first toy avatar. (pause) Period.

bb:

Did Peter move from Big Island [in the Comet Archipelago] to here?

Grassy:

Yes. He had to move to the Plane of Bill. To talk with The Bill. To start his real job.

bb:

And Bracket Jupiter paved the way.

Grassy:

What is… oh yes, that is correct.

bb:

Grassy…

Hucka D.:

That better be it for Grassy tonight. He’s out of blog shape. Will take some time. Next assignment: you have to figure out which came first, the Head or The Trip. Goodnight and sleep tight!

bb:

Thanks Hucka D.

I wanted to write a couple more ideas down tonight, before I forget. I think that the planets Baker Bloch found in his back yard belonged to Peter (or Grassy) and were his/their toys. Or experiments. Earth is strangely missing in the Mercury, Venus, Mars configuration.* And Mars is not in orbit like the other two. I’m just going to guess that this is tied into recent mention of Earth, Texas on this blog, a tiny town in Lamb County where a power plant called “Plant X” is located. Hucka D. has subsequently indicated that Plant X stands for Planet X, as in the missing 10th planet of the Solar System back in the days when Pluto was the legitimate 9th. X=10, after all. Why is Earth missing from Baker’s new back yard, though? Was it removed? Did it ever exist with the others in the first place? I wish I could ask Peter directly. Maybe Grassy can answer this the next time we speak. Mercury, Venus, Mars — like marbles.

I should also discuss, quickly, that Greentop itself has been mentioned a couple of times already in this large, spacious blog, most interestingly as the possible birthplace of NM artist Charles Nelson Blinkerton (Greentop, Missouri). Hucka Doobie claims he is still Charles Nelson Blinkerton in spirit.

Another theory is that Mr. Low, the Ancient Baker Bloch was indentured to when he was born into SL, has something to do directly with the *disappearance* of Grassy Noll and toy avatars in general from SL. Mr. Low’s name is actually Oglethorpe, and he is a Plutonian as discussed on The Street.** As the wikipedia article on Pluto mentions, Pluto is not Lowell’s hypothetized Planet X. Maybe Grassy is?

Greentop: Not too high or too low. Hilo, a new one. A new “Ancient Rising”.

** Another queer fact: Grassy Knob was renamed Mt. Oglethorpe in 1930, the same year as Pluto was discovered. Mt. Oglethorpe was then the southern terminus of the Appalachian Trail from 1937-1958, when it was moved to nearby Springer Mt.
