First and Second Life at least.

JCCS November 3, 2010

“We know several, additional things now. We know that the Art Line controls a Meander appearing Coast-to-Coast. Remember The Valley of Nye and the comparison with the Martian Valles Marineris? We know this has something to do with the Art Line, perhaps even caused by it (or visa versa?). This is deep stuff, literally and figuratively. We know The Bill are involved. HEC Canyon.

“The Line controls The Meander. However, there are additional controls set up. The Line builds up to the Gallery Jack which is the same as Jack County County Seat. JCCS for short.

“You can ask questions now.”

bb:

Can Gallery Jack move up and down The Meander? Or across the Art Line?

Hucka D.:

No. Next question. It has to stay put where it is to bridge the two, to calm the jitters of The Meander. It is JCCS.

bb:

OK, thanks. Alright. (pause) What does Monstrous Moonshine have to do with this, and why are the 2 numbers of Chance, when multiplied, 50 short of this legendary number?

Hucka D.:

The Meander is called the Art Meander, actually. What was the question again?

bb:

It was about the relationship of Monstrous Moonshine to Gallery Jack and the meeting of the, um, Art Meander with the Art Line.

Hucka D.:

My bad, it is actually The Meander. A third region has been identifed as well: A Pit. A proposal has been put forth to call these[, actually,] the Science Meander, Art Line, and Religion Pit, but I don’t think it has enough votes to pass.

bb:

What is A Pit?

Hucka D.:

It is the place a fully manifested Jack goes after assimilating the energy of the Gallery experience. It is a depression where Grassy Noll and I, Hucka Doobie, are locked in mortal combat forever and ever. It is the dual source of all.

bb:

Interesting. Hold on…

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

It is related, then.

Hucka D.:

Yes. You had another question?

bb:

Yes, back to Monstrous Moonshine…

Hucka D.:

Oh, right. Well the falling 50 short part is very important indeed. String Theory my friend. Calming The Jitters, The Meander. Science Meander. Art Line calms, leading to Religion Pit, all unofficial names for now, of course.

bb:

Can you tell me, physically, where this Religion Pit is?

Hucka D.:

You know where it is. Third Life. Beyond the First beyond the Second. Third. Jack is within. Giant Jack.

Part 2.

 

Gallery Jack Updates; Art Line

Filed under: collage 10x10,Edwardston Station Gallery,Gallery Jack — baker Blinker @ 6:22 am

Added a pie chart representing the “Art 10×10” (alternately, the “Collage 10×10), right in front of the art kiosk in Gallery Jack, where I assume most people have been entering the gallery. A wall version of this basic concept existed at one time in the original Edwardston Station Gallery (see link just below).

Interesting that “pie” keeps coming up in various ways in the blog, and also personal emails.

And as I was just writing someone, this pie chart demonstrates an overall rhythm to the 10×10 that I probably shouldn’t go into in this particular post. Since, for example, I’ve already covered it here in part…


https://bakerblinker.wordpress.com/2009/03/28/we-better-chat-5/

Then this same day I also added a map of Jasper County, Illinois to the very center of the gallery. 6 of the 8 series of the 10×10 take their names from towns within this county, or, in the order they appear in the 10×10, Rose Hill, Yale, Newton, Hidalgo, Wheeler, and then, well, Jasper itself. All these towns appear on the map, and — cool thing — the map Hidalgo lies just beneath the Hidalgo sign within the gallery, and also the Yale name on the map is quite close to the Yale sign at the bottom of one set of stairs.

If I turned the map the other way, Rose Hill town name would similarly be very close to the Rose Hill sign.

The names of two series of the 10×10 do not appear on this Jasper County map, although they are both named for towns that exist not far at all from the borders of this county. This would be Greenup, 1st series of the 10×10, and then Oblong. Not coincidentally, these two series are housed in structures separate from Gallery Jack, or SoSo perched atop Gallery Jack now (Oblong series), and then House Greenup in front of the gallery (Greenup series). What this correctly implies is that Gallery Jack and the series within represents Jasper County itself, especially focused on the northern part of the county where, again *coincidentally*, a latitude event recently discovered called the Art Line passes through. In fact, the very center of this line (39.1) runs through the middle of all these illuminated towns.

Regular readers will know that a large labyrinth exists at the center of Piedmont which Gallery Jack is a part of now. The Art Line happens to be all about labyrinths. Must be some sort of connection don’t you think?? As I told my friend Flynn (friend in SL *and* RL), once I study up on all this, I plan to contact appropriate people associated with this cross country phenomenon and see if my collage project fits into their ideas. Quite exciting really! Flynn is also the one who told me about this Art Line, but neither of us knew that a connection existed with the 10×10 at the time.

Long Way/Short Way

Filed under: Otaki Gorge,Pietmond,Uncategorized — baker Blinker @ 4:27 am

“The grass so green. Skies so blue. Pietmond is really
great!”

~ Warren Zevon, circa 2007 (tomorrow)

“Let’s get right into it, Hucka D. We must exercise Pietmond memories or else quickly forget.”

Hucka D.:

Right. You must bring in others, though.

bb:

That’s fine. First off, Peter’s Way, what we’re calling Peter’s Way now, running parallel to Peter’s Mound…

Hucka D.:

Didn’t someone respond to this blog with the name of Mound recently? Never mind… continue…

bb:

This way use to be called Short Way before the death of Peter. Correct?

Hucka D.:

It’s your town. But: yes.

bb:

Peter walks into town just like Edward Bloom walked into Spectre in Big Fish, and found the lily white town. Lillywhite.

Hucka D.:

But then they find or uncover the labyrinth. Lillywhite *and* color after that.

bb:

Later Peter comes into town on the Long Way, perhaps after he comes back from the Rabbit Hole incident.

Hucka D.:

He is technically dead then.

bb:

Hmmm… Let me look over ponder other, possible questions.

Hucka D.:

Take your time.

*****

bb:

What’s in the episode, “It wasn’t the pilot” Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

“It wasn’t the pilot, Hucka D.”?

bb:

No, without the “Hucka D.” tacked onto the end.

Hucka D.:

Tachyons?

bb:

Is that an answer?

Hucka D.:

Is it? Then: yes. Tachyons. Tacky Bill. Ticky Bill’s twin half brother. Always wears plaid.

bb:

So Tacky Bill comes into town and causes trouble for his brother Ticky Bill. But Ticky Bill has already been demonstrated in episode 1 to be illusionary.

Hucka D.:

So will Tacky Bill. (pause)

bb:

Peter won’t fall for it this time.

Hucka D.:

Tacky Bill is real, though. From the 4th dimension. Always wears the green screen.

bb:

Like this guy?*

Hucka D.:

Maybe!

*****

bb:

I think I saw that fellow over on the Parktown blog. Yes, here** . Twins again, then. I think Tacky Bill may have been the same as this Pie fellow. And, hey, Pie… *Pie*tmond. See?

Hucka D.:

What of the Red Man in that picture? Hoofingstoof?

bb:

Is that his name? It says Cloven Hoof in the picture.

Hucka D.:

He is the one who split the Pie into two pieces. Or two halves of one Pie. Pietmond.

bb:

People will say… go ahead…

Hucka D.:

People will say he is the reason for the name: Pietmond.

*****

bb:

No I think episode three of the Pietmond series should be Peter talking to the preacher and undertaker, who are one in the same, about the just unearthed labyrinth and No Room Cemetery beneath the cathedral.

Hucka D.:

That’s Tacky Bill!

bb:

There were two of them.

Hucka D.:

He runs into them on opposite sides of town. It would be impossible for it to be the same Tacky Bill, because of the distance involved. Tacky Bill then fesses up and states he travels faster than time at times. Light, I mean. “Do you know Ticky Bill?” Peter then logically asks. “Well of course I know Ticky Bill,” comes the response. “He shows up at all town meetings, he’s always hanging around the library and checking out books, he’s always seen at local restaurants, wearing the latest cuts. Of course I know Ticky. Ticky Bill. Bill.” Peter, then: “No, Ticky Bill has been proven to be quite illusionary, Tacky Bill. So I’m afraid you are part of another town joke I’m the butt of.” Tacky Bill now (deeper voice): “No, in this case you are wrong. I *do* know Ticky Bill because I can travel faster than time. Did I say time again? I meant light, of course. Tacky Bill… tachyons. That’s where the nickname comes from.”

bb:

I love this little play, Hucka D., but I must go inworld sometime and take some pictures…

Hucka D. (continuing):

So Peter says to prove it, and that’s when Tacky Bill takes him to the Rabbit Hole. But Peter wakes up and it’s all a dream, after he is pushed in. He runs down to the funeral home and finds the usual Pie Hole there. Wait, that wasn’t the name… Werehole. Werewolf Hole…

bb (suggesting):

Warren. Warren Zevon by chance?

Hucka D.:

Precisely!
