“There’s only one thing that could have been hidden in the pit.”

bb:

Is it what I’m thinking?

Hucka D.:

What are you thinking? But: yes.

bb:

Funtastical. So Wallace steals a road.

Hucka D.:

It’s partly a comedy, as it has to be.

bb:

This is the second Oz book, as The Rainbow Sphere was the centerpiece of the first. The Road will be the centerpiece of the second.

Hucka D.:

Good work (!)

bb:

The book will start in the present, which will be the huge news that The Road has been stolen. Ozma will want to know of Tin S. Man’s involvement with Wallace3 in Green Oz. Tin S. Man will explain that Wallace3 — he will more fully explain what Wallace3 is to Ozma.

Hucka D.:

Or visa versa. Wallace3 may have a criminal reputation that Tin S. Man doesn’t know about.

bb:

Or visa versa.

Hucka D.:

Your turn.

bb:

Wallace is involved in one thing, perhaps: Gold.

Hucka D.:

Tin S. Man convinces him that Gold is an alchemical search and a psychological one, not a physical search for gold.

bb:

‘Cept it isn’t. (pause) So that’s what the army of little robots do. Dig for Gold, but not…

Hucka D.:

You have more now to chew on.

ABOUT TIN CITY ART:

Tin City Art is a website designed to showcase the art work of Sharon Moore, a Duplin County artist who lives within walking distance of Tin City. It is also a website devoted to generating interest in saving memories of Tin City, a crossroads just outside Wallace, NC, that is undergoing tremendous and rapid change. A thriving community in the early 1900’s, Tin City is now hardly recognizable to people who remember what it was like when Highway 41 still had just two lanes. You won’t find Tin City on a map because it has been swallowed by the Town of Wallace. If no effort is made to preserve its history, it won’t survive at all.

By December 1957, the rock and roll era was well under way, and the rockabilly subculture made viable in large part by Sam Phillips’ Sun Records was very close to its peak. Ronnie Self raised the ante with “Lena,” possibly the most over-the-top two minutes committed to wax up to that time.

EDIT

This hit coincided with the termination of his Decca Records contract, likely because his own releases for the label weren’t selling, though his drinking and more recent reliance on prescription pills, leading to occasional outbursts and self-destructive conduct, couldn’t have helped matters.

“Or was the road always in the pit?”

Hucka D.:

You have returned to your roots.
