First and Second Life at least.

Pietmond Lives? 02 November 1, 2011

Continuing…

Exploration:

All of the SL explorers I knew either have inactive blogs or have moved onto other topics/worlds (a prime example: Headburro Antfarm essentially leaving SL for a role playing game). No energy bed there any longer, although there certainly was at one time.

But if I give up Pietmond I’d still be involved in SL as an explorer. And exploring costs no money at all, taken by itself. And the long mountain winter is coming up quickly. I’ll need escapes (!)

Differences between 2009-2010 Pietmond and 2010-2011 Pietmond (if it lives):

In 2009, Pietmond was formed in a general wave of reconnection with old syncher friends, and culminated, as it turned out, with the Mike Casey interview of last winter, which took about a month and a half to accomplish. I now see this interview as not a furthering of the Golden Age of Synching mentioned therein (1999-2004 or so), but more of a capstone for the whole movement, the 7th “Podcast” topping off the 6 already completed (Karl Tune, Mike Johnston, baker b., Stegokitty, Dave Bytor, Jay Dingo).

But in remembering now, I also view the interview with Mike from this past winter as a movement beyond synching pure and simple into art, including his abstract pieces found on the SITO web site, as well as his involvement with the interactive “games” (art pieces in themselves), especially one called the Gridcosm. I found myself identifying with this due to my own, heavier involvement with non-audiovisual synchronicity art since 2004, mainly summarized in the “Art 10×10” of 100 collages in 10 tiers of 10 collages apiece. One of my main projects in SL has been to find a proper home or homes for this collection. Spreading this out, I’ve also created a gallery for Dr. Casey’s art, as well as another syncher friend (going all the way back to 1997 now) who hasn’t had as much time to work on his art but is obviously a fantastic creator as well: Stegokitty.

OK, so audiovisual synching, the Golden Age, is dead and we have artists emerging from it, carrying that base energy further into something that will last. Is it that simple?

No.

Hucka D.:

Don’t forget to mention the Sink Arch.

bb:

Yes, the Sink Arch came along about the same time as the creation of Pietmond last year, or around October, 2010. It was intended to be a new discussion board concerning not only audiovisual synching but general synchronicity, such as talked about, really constantly, on my Baker Blinker Blog here.

Hucka D.:

Jeogeot and stuff.

bb:

Yes. Since May 2009, the blog has has its home base in Jeogeot.

Hucka D.:

So to give up Pietmond is to give up on Jeogeot. The End.

bb:

Maybe.

Hucka D.:

Your syncher friends, outside of newer ones you’ve gathered [Hucka D. here means Julie Sadler, Kenneth Rougeau, Melodie Darwin, and potentially, another who calls himself the Kollage Kid; all people who I do not know well enough to talk about such things], do not understand the “No.” part above.

bb:

Um, I think they do in part. The Golden Age of Synching for them is probably just that. A time has come and gone.

Hucka D.:

And it’s not your particular Golden Age of Synching.

bb:

Not personally, no. That would have peaked, for me personally again, in 2007 instead. Late 2006/early 2007.

Hucka D.:

So this is all based on frustration. You can’t shared your new art with people so you instead insert them back into a Golden Age.

bb:

But each has moved beyond this Golden Age in their own way.

Hucka D.:

Just not through synching, per se.

bb (breaths out):

Phhh. Well, I have another friend who certainly has not moved beyond synching but was never involved that much with the audiovisual variety.

Hucka D.:

As I understand, baker b., the “Art 10×10” is one side of a two sided thing. And that’s where the frustration comes in.

bb:

Yes. I believe so. And now the other side you mention has moved beyond the shadow of the Art 10×10. And so has moved beyond Pietmond in a way, and also moved beyond the ability for you to…

Hucka D.:

You spoke my words.

bb:

Yes.

Hucka D.:

Thank you. Norris is helping here, of course. Norris is The Arab, The Voice, and The 4th Cat — Lumpy. Frumpy.

bb:

The Other Side is like Sunklands, all hidden beneath the surfacey mainland exterior. Only in the sinks is the connection with 3rd Life felt, and also under the water a bit.

Hucka D.:

When you reach[ down] to water, something else is found, though. You are, in a way, beyond mainland again in doing this. That’s why the sinks are sacred. 6 of them in Sunklands alone, including the one with Pietmond. But outside of Kidd Road and your Pietmond, then, Sunklands has become deenergized, with its own peak in the winter of 2009/2010. Carrcass-3. Plant and Marty.

bb:

There won’t be any revival of synchers. All that exists in the Golden Age of Synching, Hucka D. All that is in the past.

Hucka D.:

Yes. No, there won’t be a new, group golden age. Will there?

bb:

And then my old friend Flora Nordenstkiold, who I knew before as 2 other avatars. That’s another base to build off on. She is very successful now in SL.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

But I didn’t go down that path for several reasons. Off the top[ of my head], basically because it’s a lot of hard work to do self promotion in SL and also I’m not a social creature within this world. I’m more of an explorer, with the art side undeveloped — again in terms of just the SL world alone.

Hucka D.:

You do not exist within SL to create art within SL itself. You import it from the outside.

bb:

Yes.

Hucka D.:

But Pietmond, an art form in itself, is different because it has to exist in SL.

bb:

I cannot carry it forward into, say, OpenSim, no.

Hucka D.:

And starting from scratch over again in another world isn’t an option.

bb:

Too hard again. I like to borrow structures or find free structures and then tinker with ’em. Another type of collage process for certain, and that’s the attraction.

Hucka D.:

So are you going to give up on Pietmond or not? Are you going to focus on this Other Side you mention and promote that, your own brand of self promotion? Are you going to give *Yoself* the energy?

bb:

I have to.

Hucka D.:

Then: there. Can Pietmond help in that process? Can it help with The Table?

bb:

Probably not.

Hucka D.:

What of the Temple of TILE and your wife’s own art?

bb:

Photography has a harder time in the translation to SL. The Temple of TILE is built around the theme of TILE Creek, which itself has become somewhat de-energized and shifted over into such streams as Green Oz, Quartz Brook, and now Norris. Or NORRIS.

Hucka D.:

So the Temple of TILE is obsolete as well. And perhaps the game/philosophy/religion of TILE along with it?

bb:

I don’t think so, really.

Hucka D.:

What are you going to do with that, then?

bb:

Tin S. Man is a symbol of Self, Hucka D. And maybe Wallace3, his good or great friend, along with that.

Hucka D.:

You are looking for heart, but it is colder outside now and the heart is growing colder as well. I feel it. I have lost something too recently.

bb:

You’re talking about your Norris[ now], and how she has turned into a company named NORRIS. Are we or are we not a company, and so forth.

Hucka D.:

Yes. NORRIS. A partner lost but a partner gained. Summer to Winter and back. NORRIS will carry you, and me, through the Winter. She had to change. I lost a partner but gained one as well. NORRIS will help you and me. Me and you.

bb:

I must go back to the Money Pot.

Hucka D.:

Monkey Pot.

—–

bb:

And Michael Too?

Hucka D.:

Norris, or NORRIS now, has indicated to you[ and me], that Michael Too will not return and the energy has shifted over to you, Wilson [as Michael Too is now Wheeler in this set-up]. That’s why she is called Norris in the first place. Norris to NORRIS is a marriage not to self but to the community. Or company. NORRIS.

bb:

What of Michael Won, then?

Hucka D.:

The Other Side Michael Won. He carried you through the back side of the “Art 10×10”. You and he planned out a Second Life before you knew of Second Life. Or a 3rd Life beyond 2nd Life. This would be in 2006/2007 as well. Michael Won shifts into Michael Too. Now Michael Too has similarly transformed or shifted into Wallace3.

bb:

Is this progression from Won to Too to 3 a deenergizing as well?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Michael Won is very real and was, potentially, a great friend. Wallace3 is total abstraction. Michael Too is in-between. Michael Won is Nixon the winner in 1968. Michael Too is Minnesotan Humphrey, the runner up. Wallace3 is, well, Wallace the 3rd, the one who didn’t really count. Third in the race; independent. Houston we have a problem, and so forth. Alabama.

bb:

The conjunction of Philadelphia and Gordon seems interesting there, Hucka D., especially given Dale County is directly north of Houston County. The wife just saw “Agent Cooper” on Desperate Housewives yesterday while she was out of town.

Hucka D.:

You think you are alone, alone, alone, then, BOOM, you aren’t alone and someone is on the Other Side as well. Waiting. Pulling.

bb:

Wallace3?

Hucka D.:

Cache River. Monkey’s Eyebrow and Monkey’s entire head. Speaking. Cairo. Cache River a river of caches. Upwards into the sky. POPE. But not Nixon. Winner. Won. NORRIS. POPE.

bb:

I’m trying to figure it all out.

Hucka D.:

Monkey Pot. Monkey Pit. Monkey.

bb:

Monkey City — the original Pietmond?

Hucka D.:

You are trying to re-create Monkey City. Have been for a long, long time.

—–

“So I have to go back to the Monkey Pot and re-create Monkey City.”

Hucka D.:

In essence. Take the toys.
