Cayce Do You Mind January 13, 2012

“Where is The Table located?”

“We don’t know,” replies Marty. Others mumble to the same effect.

“What is its shape?”

Same kind of response.

Hucka D. pipes up. “You have just uncovered the identity of Dr. Blood. He is Tin S. Man, formerly of Green Oz Creek and Tinsity. A million dollar Money Pit was buried at this location, then moved. Marty was in charge of the move. Marty is in charge of The Table, or its chairperson. Marty?”

“We don’t know,” he says again, then blushes, realizing he was several lines behind once more. “Uh-hmm,” he utters and adjusts the large volume of papers in his hands, knocking them hard several times against The Table to get the edges straight again. Then he begins thumbing through them nervously; beginning to sweat. Definitely an awkward pause in the action tonight.

Hucka D.:

Well, since Marty isn’t quite ready I’ll pipe up again. You have just uncovered the identity of Dr. Blood. He is Tin S. Man of Tinsity fame, with a 1000000 dollar Money Pit near his home. Marty was in charge of the move. Marty?”

bb:

Excuse me Hucka D. but we’ve already been through this.

The others start to laugh a bit now, and even Marty chuckles some while still trying to [also] get his act together.

—–

I’ll write privately as well, then. Silly variants, hehe.

Dr. Blood:

I am here once more. I am unhappy.

bb:

Dr. Blood (!) Nice to see you around again. Long time.

Dr. Blood:

Not really. Just night before last.

bb:

Oh, you mean Tin S. Man found in the Heart o’ Sunklands.

Dr. Blood:

Beating heart, yes. Still alive, despite your attempts to kill. Chop an arm off there, a leg there, another leg here. Next will be my head. Next will be my heart.

bb:

Are you in charge of the Aotearoa Sink, Dr. Blood?

Dr. Blood:

I am the creator of organization. I wasn’t present at the meeting tonight and all fell apart[ because of it]. I just wanted to show you that. I am the organization. I wasn’t present at the meeting tonight and all fell apart in a way. I simply wanted to demonstrate that… I am the organizer of creation. I am the creator. I am. I.

bb:

Marty is fascinated with his role in The Table. Lemon — not so much.

Dr. Blood:

Marty and The Beetles are more subtly linked. Lemon doesn’t have the close identity. He does to The Beetles as you are trying to do with Sunklands. You don’t understand how long term it will be.

bb:

The Beetles show up most of all, perhaps, in Carcass+, lemee see, Carrcass+6. I had to count backwards in me head there.

Dr. Blood:

OK.

bb:

There is an association between the Sea of Green, famously found in the single Yellow Submarine, and Green Pond, New Jersey. The house involved is painted yellow, and it sits on the shores of this pond… er, lake.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_Pond,_New_Jersey

Dr. Blood:

It is the yellow submarine. It has the friends all aboard. Rocking there are Joe, then Fin, then Olivia. Living a life of ease. They are playing, not a band with a trumpet, but just playing, having fun. Every one of them is all they need. It is the yellow submarine. The [yellow] train Joe and Fin chase is another type of yellow submarine. They drive parallel to it; they are the train which is the submarine. They too are having fun there. But they both need Olivia as well and she needs them. It’s just a very nice movie. Very profound in a subtle way.

bb:

Thanks for all that (!) The Beetles, however, trace the whole story of the movie. They are, one could say, locked in with the movie through these 5 songs, Yellow Submarine being the 5th. Balancing it out on the other side of [Carrcass+6] is Eleanor Rigby, the flip side of Yellow Submarine.

Dr. Blood:

Eleanor Rigby is about loss. For Fin, it is loss of his boss, his co-worker, his friend. He must make a long journey and find new friends. He must find a New Land. Newfoundland. Inherited from this same boss, co-worker, friend. But they are lonely in this New York City suburb on the New Jersey side. Hoboken I believe. The shop they work at, a hobby shop, must close now. Fin must make new friends in a New Land.

bb:

So, let’s see, next comes “Drive My Car”.

Dr. Blood:

So where does the lonely person Fin belong? That is the posed question. Where do they all come from, and where do they belong. The movie, however, immortalizes their actions. The movie tells the story of Anyman, who dies and leaves nothing, perhaps, but also something. He is not a Nowhere Man. He leaves something to Fin, and Fin carries on. Fin is an explorer. Fin is a great adventurer. Fin is acting through the soul of his friend. We trace a direct line from Eleanor Rigby to Yellow Submarine through the whole movie. Loneliness to Friendship.

bb:

Thanks. And then “Drive My Car”?

Dr. Blood:

Meeting between Fin and Olivia. Olivia almost runs over Fin not once but twice. These are also the two verses of the song. She can’t drive[ her car]. She is absent minded, spilling hot coffee on her, fiddling around with the groceries. She is unfocused. It is also Olivia and Joe, who she drives to see Fin. She remains uncommited to friendship to the two. Then we have an unexpected shift to Flubber for the final verse. Dr. Brainard too is unfocused, and runs into an apple tree with his car, now flying, or attempting to fly. Flying car represents a yellow submarine again: opposites. Powered by flubber. Olivia is the driver. Joe has no car. Fin has no car. “Flying” is directly attached, then, to “Drive My Car.”

bb:

The Beetles song “Flying”, from Magical Mystery Tour. The only song credited to all 4 Beetles. Their “Dyer Maker”, then (smiles).

Dr. Blood:

[Deepening] the segue to Magical Mystery Tour, after we see [Dr.] Brainard hovering over his girfriend and his rival [from Rutland College] for her hand [ after he straightens out the flying part], we then have the song “Magical Mystery Tour” itself. All aboard for the magical mystery tour is all aboard for Alvin Straight’s magical trip across the bulk of Iowa to see his brother Lyle in western Wisconsin, to make up for bad blood in the past. Alvin is dying — he knows that. Alvin drives a riding mower across Iowa. He too doesn’t have a car and makes do with what he does have. One riding mower goes kaputt; he buys another. This is all his money. Rutland is a linking word. Rutland… Rutles. Beetles parody.

bb:

That’s so great (!)

Dr. Blood:

You must go to Rutland. Erik Idle is The Rat.

bb:

Yes (!)
