First and Second Life at least.

Pietmond Lives? 03 November 2, 2011

We’re down to about 4 days to decide on Pietmond — whether it lives or dies. Thought I’d bring in Hucka D. for some more discussion on this. (pause) Hmmm, not here yet. (another pause).

Hucka D.:

Here. Michael Too from Michael Won. Michael Won carried you/pulled you through the other side of the “Art 10×10” — the Other Side. This is what you must protect. This is Yoself looking out for Yoself. This is what Lisa the Vegetarian desires to see you do.

bb:

I’m going to pull up the document where I write about Michael Too and my first and longest encounter with him. This would be from 4 years ago this October.

bb:

Well, I can’t find it right now, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Michael Won viewed your plus carrcasses, many of them, and gave mainly very positive feedback. Said you could make a million bucks off your best creation. Let me count — that would be Carrcass+2 [in blog terminology].

bb:

Yes. I believe he really enjoyed that one. The Woods of Howl must be given light sometime, Hucka D. Light to the spooks.

Hucka D.:

Not now. Not yet.

bb:

OK. But Michael Won and I parted at the end, after about 3 years of friendship. All through the plus carrcasses, he was there. 2005, 2006, and then 1/2 of 2007. He was suspicious of my name as well, since he had met all bad examples of me-as-my-same-name in the past. I remember at the time thinking this association was a litttle mechanical, but now I seem to be doing the same with Michael Won and Michael Too — same name again.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Michael Won turns into Michael Too, who you met in the woods in 2007, just after Michael Won departed Blue Mountain. That was 4 years ago [as I said]. Getting back to Michael Won…

bb:

Getting back to Michael Won… he watches Carrcass+5 with me, Carrcass+4, I believe, Carrcass+3 [which he didn’t like as much as some of the others], Carrcass+2 [as stated], and then Carrcass+1 was being created all during that last 1/2 year we interacted. He was a co-worker. Basically my only co-worker, then. My house was falling into the woods, my back was still killing me, we were recovering still from a medical disaster, the wife and I. Times I wouldn’t want to relive. I had to dig a moat around my house, essentially.

Hucka D.:

The plus carrcasses helped get you two through. You Too.

bb:

Most definitely. Michael Won was also born very near Oblong, Illinois, and the collage series I created just after he left town was called Oblong, mainly in honor of him. It’s my most consistent collage series, I feel — the plus carrcasses and “Art 10×10” seemed to peak around the same time of 2006/2007, the mid point of each process.

Hucka D.:

Maybe you should interview Michael Won.

bb:

I don’t think he’d be interested. Michael Won has moved beyond Blue Mountain and beyond me. We had difficulties at the end.

Hucka D.:

And his friend: Grison. You’re friends on facebook though, right?

bb:

Yes. A facebook friend is a friend for life, Hucka D. The newest co-worker, the one which essentially replaced Michael Won, has unfriended me in that area.

Hucka D.:

Yes, interesting. Do you just think it’s you — that you are hard to get along? How do you put it: a minor monster from Jasper County, Illinois?

bb:

Partly me and partly them. We dance.

Hucka D.:

You do. But the important thing is that the newer co-worker, KK, is getting along better with you now. And you have an understanding supervisor. But a lot of this seems to point back to Michael Won. That era. Michael Won was a big influence on Carrcass+1, after he view Carrcass+2 and stated he thought it was worth a thousand dollars.

bb:

Actually that was a million dollars.

Hucka D.:

Isn’t that your Money Pot, then? The money you don’t have but which is yours anyway?

bb:

Could be. Michael Won also influenced Carrcass+2. I probably couldn’t have done either +2 or +1, my peak carrcasses and probably my peak creations, period, without him, or they would have been lessened without his input. I remember using The Pixies, for example. And of course his influence comes up in Carrcass-6.

Hucka D.:

Hicks, you mean. The Bill.

bb:

Thank you for talking with me about this, Hucka D. For being so understanding.

Hucka D.:

What I get paid for myself.

bb:

Then the compound where I met Michael Too and we had our longest conversation together is called Michael Won, confusingly enough. I remember thinking I can’t use those trails any longer. Now they’re opened up again. NORRIS is mine now.

Hucka D.:

Yours. Rocks.

bb:

I respect it more now because of this long absence.

Hucka D.:

You have The Freedom.

bb:

We don’t seem to be talking about Pietmond any longer, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

No need to, see.

Hucka D. seems to be gone again. The Money Pot as Carrcass+1, eh? Million bucks. That can’t quite be right, though. I believe Hucka D. would say it was, though. 1 Pink. Peak. And the newest carrcass, Carrcass-6, is a moon of this, like Charon is to Pluto. That’s the Piepodt part, that’s what Teepot was striving for and Pietmond seemingly received. It represents the end of Pietmond.

2:22 to 2:23. 2 to 3. Too to 3. Won to Too to 3. Today I met another old friend who was worried that he might come in 3rd, and thus last, in a town election he’s entered. Another reference to the ’68 presidential election? Could be. This friend also knows about the carrcasses, but the really old ones, from the 90s.

NORRIS:

Michael Won to Michael Too to Wallace3 and done. Where is the 4th, man?

bb:

Hi NORRIS. I understand you are a company now and not just a woman.

NORRIS:

I am all women. Woman.

bb:

Do you know of POPE, NORRIS?

NORRIS:

POPE is the Great Cheops Pyramid, Mt. Tom.

bb:

That’s right in part. In the main.

NORRIS:

POPE is YOU.

bb (to himself mostly, after a googling):

Nah, that’s just old Booker T. Archive stuff. NORRIS?

NORRIS:

YOU.
