“Hucka D., we either go further into the depths of the Crime Peninsula — bad name, don’t you think? — or we back away now and try something else.”

Hucka D.:

Try something else. Or not.

bb:

There’s just not much of an energy base to talk about Jeogeot on my own.

Hucka D.:

You can always return to Sunklands. That’s you home, after all. Home away from home.

bb:

Something about West End, though. Marty, of course, and The Beetles as a whole.

Hucka D.:

How did the “R” of Ringo shift to the back of the name to make Ingor?

bb:

I guess that’s the whole, variant process, Hucka D. Like George Harrison there was called George Harris’ Son.

Hucka D. (listing them out):

So there’s Marty — McCartney; Lemon, he’s Lennon; then the two I just mentioned. We just mentioned. And they played in WES.

bb:

Yes. We have pictures as proof. From 2007.

Hucka D.:

Can I see one?

bb:

I suppose so. I can dig one or two up real quick. Suppose the creator won’t mind at this late date.

Hucka D.:

Is that Ingor playing the drums there? He looks very red. Like a Red Man red.

bb:

I think that’s just the guy who took the picture. Stefano Sternberg… interesting name in itself, since there’s a Sternberg city nearby. Here’s another picture of WES by the same guy:

bb:

Now a question becomes: Is this the same city as West End Shipping? We know it is WES. (pause). Ahhh, we have Stefano caught in a Chilbo t-shirt here, Hucka D. (!)

bb:

And it looks like he may have owned a place called the Berlin Bar in Mujigae in Greater Chilbo. But it [Chilbo] would have been quite a young place in Spring 2007 still, the time the bar seemed to have opened. (pause) Furthermore, it looks like he checked out The Cavern in WES just before this bar opened, Hucka D. Perhaps it served as some sort of inspiration. (pause to look at more snapzilla photos) That’s about all I’m getting out of this, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Have you figured out what happened yet?

bb:

In WES?

Hucka D.:

WES, yes. WES.

bb;

One thing: I was just thinking tonight it’s about as far away from Chilbo on Jeogeot you can get in both a physical and spiritual way, yet now I know there’s a direct connection through Stefano and The Cavern/Berlin Bar.

Hucka D.:

Center becomes West. West becomes Center.

bb:

Maybe WES was becoming a rival to Chilbo. Maybe Chilbo didn’t like it. Maybe they took care of The Beetles.

Hucka D.:

The Beetles were in trouble, true.

bb:

Maybe this is about urban areas of Jeogeot, like WES, like Chilbo… like Sternberg for that matter, where Little Robert Plant Variant supposedly got his musical start.

Hucka D.:

Interesting name, as you said. Why were all attracted to Sunklands?

bb:

I believe it was indicated that Plant and The Beetles were invited into Sunklands.

Hucka D.:

*Everyone* was invited. WES, Sternberg, Chilbo… everyone. It was a central watering hole. Center becomes North, South, East, West. Compass directions. All in Sunklands. Sink in.

*****

bb:

Sunklands was a way to preserve the past. Ancients.

Hucka D.:

It’s not The Beetles. It’s The Residues.

bb:

Variant Residents band (?)

Hucka D.:

Two WES’, superimposed on top of each other. Two lidded, if you wish.

bb:

Band on the Run?

Hucka D.:

Yes, on the run. Marty should have seen it coming. Another Beetles on top of the other Beetles. It was his dream to start over in 1970 and do the bar circuit again. He couldn’t do it in Real Life — he came here. Split occurred. But in order to do this he had to make an agreement with The Residues.

bb:

I’m getting confused over the role of all these bands. Sternberg, in that snapshot above, played drums in WES and pretended he was Ringo.

Hucka D.:

Sternberg was Ingor. Red Man.

bb:

Sewing out tunes? Penny Lane/Strawberry Fields?

Hucka D.:

Bee-tles. McCartney. Lennon. Wisconsin, Florida. You must return.

bb:

Thank you.

 

Crime Peninsula?

Filed under: West End — baker Blinker @ 7:55 am

A central bus stop in West End Shipping (aka WES).

Baker looks down from a neighboring house to the blue-green pool with the 2 lidded crate talked about elsewhere in this blog recently.

A look at the entire sim of Nightfield using a long draw distance. For some reason the neighboring sims wouldn’t rez in this, er, night — meaning?

Shot of blue-green pool and house Baker is sort of camped out at now.

Baker decides to explore the neighborhood on foot, and soon runs across a red lion in the sim of Redlion at the entrance to a privately owned castle.

Nice seaside residence in Barsoom, just west of Redlion (in turn, just west of Nightfield).

Air dice. Baker tries to roll but can’t.

Yet another building in West End as a whole owned by the United States of America USA or United States of America SL group, this being in Dreamtime (south of Redlion). Admittedly I’m unsure of what all of it means yet, but I promise to do more research. I know that the groups has created a large city in West End previously unmentioned in this blog, but noted by other Jeogeot explorers such as ujiyasu, and also chronicled in Dahlia Jayaram’s The Great Balloon Adventure: Jeogeot, specifically pages 16-20 of that online publication.

Baker gets pretty excited upon seeing this building perched on top of Cute and Punk designs in Cimmeria (below Nightfield), thinking it reads “Westville Hospital”. However as he moves closer the name resolves into West*nile*, not Westville. Probably not some kind of remnant of ancient WES, then, or connected in any way to West End Shipping he doesn’t suppose. Still, a worthy mistake to note, which may turn out to be connected to the serendipity web of West End at any rate upon further review.

Back in West End Shipping itself, Baker is disappointed that this backdoor entrance isn’t functional. Only one way into town when walking, then, and its on the opposite side of where he is now.

Nice view of West End land in Armon Gill and points east from an unfinished, open building on the east end of Ezquerra. Could this be Baker’s new squatting spot?
