… probably talk a bit tonight, Hucka D.”

Hucka D.:

First off, I’m thrilled as peaches and cream about you and me going to Arkansas. What fun we’ll have. Fishing will be only one of the many activities there.

bb:

Thanks Hucka D. I’m excited too. We’ll talk about SID’s 1st Oz there, I assume.

Hucka D.:

Oh yes (pause).

bb:

So I’m in Crabwoo for the first time. Living there, I mean.

Hucka D.:

Oh yes.

bb:

On the property that Peter himself use to own.

Hucka D.:

He went to school there. Crabwoo U. Wu U. for short, they use to call it.

bb:

Great. And he studied to be a lawyer.

Hucka D.:

Yes. (pause again)

bb:

How about TILE. Was it [game/philosophy/religion] around, then?

Hucka D.:

Not really. Ask about Karoz.

bb:

Oh yeah, Karoz was in Crabwoo I assume. I think you said he was studying to be a jeweler.

Hucka D.:

Karoz and Peter went to the same university, but not exactly at the same time.

bb:

The virus! It came from that Kashmir property now called something else. The one directly north of Dazed and Confused.

Hucka D.:

The virus that would wipe out future Pietmond, yes. The one in Aotearoa and not Otaki Gorge, though. Have we clarified that yet? [difference between the two?]

bb:

I don’t think so.

Hucka D.:

Well… subject for another night. The virus was found there, though. Zeppelin Tube. AO… OA.

baker b. (pondering):

Plant sang from the perspective of this virus in the song “Kashmir”, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

Then sang from the exact, same perspective in the following song on the Physical Graffiti double album, “In the Light”.

Hucka D.:

Exactly. (pause) Or not.

bb:

Peter engineered Plant??

Hucka D.:

Yes! In Nowtown. He had to tube all along. But he found it as a boy in the creek beside his parent’s mansion there.

bb:

He brought the virus to Pietmond/Sunklands?

Hucka D.:

Not on purpose. But: yes.

bb:

Peter must return to Crabwoo U., this Wu U., to understand something that would happen to Pietmond.

Hucka D.:

He had to stem the curse. Rose stem. AO… OA.

bb:

At Crabwoo U., they studied Earth (!)

Hucka D.:

Right again. 1st Life-2nd Life link. Through the sea. Blue Feather.

bb:

I can delete the Blue Feather Gallery now I know this.

Hucka D.:

No. The Blue Feather Gallery will have to be moved to Maebaleia.

bb:

Thank you.

 

Crabwoo, 01

Filed under: Crabwoo — baker Blinker @ 8:44 am

New digs in Crabwoo, a bit over 2048 sq. meters worth. Bigger than most secondary places I’ve lived at lately, then.

Some landscaping details: 2 small pools on the property.

I simply duplicated the Downtown of Pietmond and eased it next to one of the few surviving Crabwoo sidewalks from last year, all of which now appear to lay in the immediate vicinity of the Dazed and Confused shop selling various rock paraphernalia. In fact, Dazed and Confused seems to be about the only thing about Crabwoo that hasn’t atrophied over time, with the structure growing a bit larger instead.

Walking around the remainder of Crabwoo sidewalks. Quite a nice, little residential neighborhood actually, with lots of cheap land still for sale. Perhaps the village can be revived in some way.

Baker falls into a hole while walking a low, grassy ridge to the immediate east of Dazed and Confused. But he’s OK.

Then it’s through the center of D&C back to the new property, where Blochs sits on a hill attempting to grok the landscape. I’m calling this Solsbury Hill, and the rest of the property Peter’s Place. Yes, it appears we’ve stumbled on, in our own special, bumbling way, another former living quarters of Peter the Good or Peter the SoSo — the one who was in Pietmond anyway. How could this be? Apparently he was attracted to being in Crabwoo when it was more in its glory days for some reason. Obviously I’ll be talking more about this new development quite soon.

Not far to the west lies the edge of the Blue Feather Sea itself, which Baker admires from an overlooking hill owned by the Live Music Journal group, who have set up what’s called an Awards Stage just behind him here.

Interesting landscaping on the same property. I think Baker’s going to like it in what remains of Crabwoo!

And finally, the obviously appropriate rezzing of the Blue Feather Cube in the center of Downtown.

More soon from Crabwoo! Of course, I’ve kept Pietmond in the process, just giving up the Conferation of Sinkers land in Big Sink (sold just tonight!) to purchase this.
