First and Second Life at least.

4th January 12, 2012

Should be able to catch up with the creation of blog post texts this extended weekend.

Pietmond *might* last until March and even into early April. What projects to do, however, if it does? Norris gallery remains unfinished… Crooked Building: set up Pietmond Branch of Crabwoo University there? Sinkology?

The Table must be developed, and I’m not sure what role Pietmond will have in that. Started looking over The Table today, specifically the part belonging to The Beetles. The Beetles are the 4th most important artist or group of artists on this Table, audio side that is. Their mythology will be developed in a future carcass, perhaps Carcass-7 but maybe not as well.

The Table represents a history of music as I know it in general. And video. It is a snapshot of a particular time and place.

Gong represents another limitation, along with Teepot. Move back to Teepot? Is that where I’ll develop The Table in Second Life instead?

“No.”

bb:

There’s Mr. Hucka Doobie the Bee. Howdy.

Hucka D.:

Clean, cheap fun.

bb:

Pietmond.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Cut back on wine two days a week. Cut back on coffee. Cut back.

bb:

I’m planning to use the Pietmond money to buy toys, Hucka D., like model train track.

Hucka D.:

Make sure everything is wrapped up properly.

bb:

And The Table must be developed.

Hucka D.:

The Beetles[ and all].

bb:

Yes. Marty still around?

Hucka D.:

Yes. You will work with him again. Simpsons.

bb:

The good news is that, thanks to the expansion of the mythology surrounding Frank and Herman Parks — protected parks after all — the Baker Blinker Blog will continue even if Second Life went bottom up tomorrow. It would slow down, true.

Hucka D.:

You would find other virtual realities to explore.

bb:

I don’t think I plan to. Except maybe for GoogleEarth.

Hucka D.:

Good.

bb:

But I must begin to focus on The Table.

Hucka D.:

So you’ve said.

bb:

Working out… toward the edge.

Hucka D.:

Have you found the 4th yet?

bb:

Um, no.

Hucka D.:

You better start looking (!) That is the lip[ of the hole].

bb:

Crawling or climbing out of Pietmond equals climbing out of the hole that is The Table?

Hucka D.:

Sinkhole. Synch Hole.

bb:

Maybe draw some impressions of Pietmond.

Hucka D.:

You will have to go to the town council for any further destructions and constructions, baker b.

bb:

Carcassonne?

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

Anyone else?

Hucka D.:

Maybe Marty. Maybe Warren Zeevon. Maybe The Bill. Maybe Lemmon. Maybe Plant. Bring them back. That’s your Table.

bb:

The Beetles are The 4th

—–

Marty is also leader of the toy avatar grouping at Money Pot now. BUILD THE TABLE THERE. The Table becomes all important. CARCASSONNE. Look over photos of Norum, Pietmond, Teepot?

—–

Marty becomes defacto leader of the toys after the death of Lisa the Vegetarian at the Jonesborough Compound. He orders the evacuation of the compound when Money Pot is found, a 1000000 dollars buried within so the rumors fly. DO YOU THINK HE NEEDS THE MONEY? Michael Won buried the money there — that’s what Michael Too was scared about. SACRED. Houston we have a problem. YOU BETTER FIND OUT IF THE MONEY IS THERE. MARTY MAY THINK SO. Maybe Stan and Sid and Spit and Sue are looking for that money. WHAT ELSE. Sid would know — he would vibrate around money. He could feel it deep underground. Shrink way way down. Totally different set of rules. CARCASS-7.

—–

Marty:

We begin today for several minutes. baker b., explain the numbering system of the carcasses. Why not call them by their real names?

bb:

The term carcass is used to describe [delete name] within this blog.

Marty:

There it goes again (!) Self editing.

Lemmon:

OHMMMMM.

bb:

OK, sorry. Carcasses are [delete name]. No use. But there are the word for *that* within the blog. We are within the blog now, so the word can’t be written. Not really. Carcasses start with the advent of this blog, or early 2008. Carcass-1 is the first carcass produced by me while working on the blog as well. This would be late 2008. Carcass-2 and Carcass-3 formed in 2009. Carcass-4 in 2010, just before the founding of Pietmond itself. Carcass-5 came along this past summer, and then Carcass-6 right after that, ending in September. Carcass-7, I project, will be formed sometime in 2012, perhaps along with even another carcass.

All carcasses before this blog have a positive number instead of a negative number. The last carcass created before the Baker Blink Blog is Carcass-0. The carcass before that is Carcass+0. The carcass before that, even, is Carcass+1, which may be the largest of all. The one before that, Carcass+2, is also pretty large but not as much. Carcass+1 and Carcass+2 together probably form the peak of carcass creations, and this would be late 2006 and early 2007. Marty, you would be involved in, for example, Carcass+3, very similar to Carcass+2, and then Carcass+2. You would be involved in one tile of Carcass-1. You would be involved in several tiles of Carcass-3, and this would also be the time of your involvement with the Baker Blinker Blog through Sunklands, along with Plant. Plant belongs in Carcass-3 as well — you two are the main driving force of this smaller carcass. It also probably represents the peak of Second Life influence on the carcasses, which start to grow larger again after this but not as large as pre-blog carcasses. Not yet at least. You and Plant are different in that you are blog spirits but also the major artists in a carcass. You are sort of a link between the two, then. When Carcass-3 was finished, I did not need either you or Plant afterwards. Not really, once more. This is one of the few times you’ve showed up in the meantime.

Marty:

I’m here at the request of Dr. Blood, whom I understand you [just] met in the heart of Sunklands, baker b. Tin S. Man.

bb:

I suppose I [just] did, yes.

Marty:

What is Sin City? Or Sinsity?

bb:

I believe it may be a psychic reflection of Chilbo west toward WESity. Your city after all.

Marty:

Yes, Lemmon and I played in WES. That’s where I was recruited by Dr. Blood to take part in the Sunkland Initiative. Plant came from the direction of, let me see, Sternberg I believe.

bb:

Originally Nowtown and Zen City, but they’re basically suburbs of Sternberg. *Were* suburbs. None of these places really exist now, except for the old core of Sternberg.

Marty:

I wonder if records still exist there of Plant’s stay. I’m not sure about WES and The Beetles. You have some photographs I understand. Sternberg, the city, was our drummer. Red. Dr. Blood.

bb:

Let’s see: WES or WESity was founded by a man who obviously, unconsciously knew of Carcass+2, Marty. His former club was in a MASH related sim[ name], and he also mentioned the desire to run a lemonade stand [in his SL profile] and then also quoted from Peewee’s Big Adventure [in same]. MASH represents mashup. Carcass+2.

Marty (pondering):

I can see this some, thanks to Dr. Blood. We, The Beetles, are at the end of Carcass+3. The End. And then at The Beginning of Carcass+2.

bb:

Kind of.

Marty:

This would be Abbey Road.

bb:

Yes.

Marty:

But Flattop is a mountain?

bb:

Yes. It is Yards Mountain. It use to be the most sacred of all Frank and Herman Park mountains, but I’m not so sure any more. It is a supposed place of contact. Like Devil’s Mountain, of course. Devil’s Tower, I mean.

Marty:

The End circles back to The Beginning. Grooving up slowly, this old flattop is. I thought the lyrics were nonsense… Lemmon didn’t tell me their meaning.

Lemmon:

The Bill. PAY THE BILL. (laughs loudly)

bb:

Come Together would be the coming together of the 2 who are to visit Devil’s Tower and witness the contact. The “over me” part of coming together would be the Tower itself. They are both creating art with representations of this mountain.

Hucka D. (entering):

Sorry I’m late. Apple cart spill over on Route 9, phew. Do you mind, actually, if I grab an okra cola soda before we begin?

bb:

We’ve already begun.

Hucka D.:

Oh. So you won’t miss me a bit more (smiles; gets up to go to okra coke machine).

Plant:

Marty must understand before the rest of us can understand.

Marty:

I understand that contact must be made. We must Come Together.*

bb:

And that’s your only role in Carcass+2. You’re not used in Carcass+1. But you’re back, certainly, in Carcass+-0. Realm of Lemmon for sure.

Lemmon:

UNCLE MEATWAD!

* http://oldies.about.com/od/thebeatlessongs/a/cometogether.htm

This has been erroneously reported as the last track on which all four Beatles played together at the session; that record actually belongs to, appropriately enough, “The End,” recorded on August 8, 1969.

A Crime. January 14, 2011

Filed under: Beetles, The,Hucka D.,Lemmon,Marty,Residents, The,Uncategorized,West End — baker Blinker @ 8:02 am

“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.

 

McGlumphed January 11, 2011

Filed under: Beetles, The,Carrcass+2,Lemmon,Marty,Uncategorized,WES — baker Blinker @ 6:51 am

“Close conjunction of population places Darwin and Casey in Meeker County, Minnesota. Last names of perhaps first and last Pietmond outside exhibitors.”

Hucka D.:

Meaning those not within your skin.

bb:

Yes. Then in Clark County, Illinois…

… the same two town names [appear] but on opposite sides of the county this time, instead of close together. Each has a township named for it, like Casey Darwin does in Minnesota.

Hucka D.:

Darwin pulls you out of yourself, your Pietmond. She even has a… I’ll let you speak.

bb:

She even has a West Coast Road folder, Hucka D. Energies unite.

Hucka D.:

Casey first and Darwin last. Evolution. Pietmond evolution [of Art Crawl galleries, SoSo first and Underground perhaps last]. Only way to go now is up [to the UFO].

bb:

OK.

Hucka D.:

Put the McGlumphy pictures in the Underground tomorrow. Sorry, Ms Darwin’s pictures.

bb:

It [Darwin-Casey conjunctions in MN and IL] really seems to define the limits of Pietmond itself, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

She is a Jeogeot artist. You are an artist of Jeogeot.

bb:

United in West End Shipping: WES.

Hucka D.:

Yes. How’s the search for Ancient Marty going. Blackbird?

bb:

Black and white. Red all over, I suppose.

Hucka D.:

Do you think… have you considered… that Marty is jacking you around?

bb:

I’m not really sure what that would mean.

Hucka D.:

Well… you’ve put things forth on the table. He hasn’t responded.

bb:

Not sure…

Hucka D.:

Lemon stand… shiny red Herman bike… Mash… Mashup.

bb:

I think you mean the mashup of a specific Herman bike with a lemon true tree. Fusion, really.

Hucka D.:

Yes, you can say that. Then both stolen. Big and little together. Mashup. Monster Mashup.

==========

bb:

Well, let’s talk, if you don’t mind, about my visit or, now, visits to WES. Something I didn’t put in that last descriptive post: I met the griefer, apparently, and we talked a bit. She had a gun, which I found uneasy given the day’s events. She was only white mist, and when I told her to log out and log back in, and that always cleared the non-body problem up for me, she did and it didn’t. She remained an unknown, like a certain person that had captured Amereca’s complete attention was still a huge question mark. I think that has something to do with all this.

Another observation: there are several Crimean related sim names on the peninsula with WES, including — I’ve sent Baker Bloch over to Nightfield right now [to check the inworld map] — Cimmeria, primarily, but also Belit. I’ve done a bit of study on the others sim names of this mainland peninsula, but this is the only connection between two sims I’ve been able to come up with, mainly through the wikipedia article on Robert E. Howard’s Belit, where it is mentioned that her romantic interest, Conan the Barbarian (Howard’s most famous character), is a Cimmerian, which is the actual name of a tribe of people who lived on Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula. Crimea is also an anagram of Cimmeria.

Hucka D.:

What’s your point [in all this]?

bb:

I should also mention that Belit is Conan’s first real love interest.

Hucka D.:

Let me help, then. The peninsula Stanlee is upon is like the Crimean Peninsula. Crime as well. A crime was committed there. Griefer attack. Seems to be two separate people but in reality only one. Gun was involved. This happen to Lemon too.

bb:

Oh, man. I didn’t understand the Lemon connection fully until now (!)

Hucka D.:

A man was being searched for but not the one who committed the crime. Instead it was One Who Zaps, see. Mashup is involved. You have found your Ancients. (pause) Lemon was stolen from us. Bike… lemon. Something very, very valuable to us all.

============

bb:

So a bit more: off the West Coast Road I’ve found not one but two peninsulas with a very narrow type of isthmus connecting them back to mainland. The first was in a larger body of water in Kusanagi, described in this earlier post. The second comes from Nightfield itself; in fact, if Baker Bloch stands up right now — I’m making him do this as I write — he can go to the window in front of him and *just* see this second, very similar type of peninsula. I’ll go ahead and take another picture of it while Baker is standing there.

Easy as pie. Anyway, this much smaller peninsula has the two lidded chest we talked about before, Hucka D., which you indicated at the time represents two eyes, similarly with two lids.

Hucka D.:

To see with, yes. The lids help protect. They are lids as well. They hide the soul… golden stairway to heaven… so forth.

==========

bb:

I stopped to write an email to MC. I think he’s the one who’s been McGlumphed. I was just picking up on that.

Hucka D.:

Yes. A crime.

bb:

Anyway, I just logged in to my email account to write *him*, and see he beat me to the punch. I was going to ask him his opinions of Jung’s individuation process and the search for Self. This has to do with that double lidded trunk. Directly.*

==========

*
http://www.schuelers.com/ChaosPsyche/part_1_27.htm

Jung’s (1978) individuation is similar, if not identical, to the self-actualization of Maslow (1968; 1971). But why does the ego need to approach the Self, if it is to all end in death? Jung (1991) says “The psyche itself, in relation to consciousness, is pre-existent and transcendent “ (p. 91). So, while the ego is born, grows, and dies, in the same way as the body, the psyche itself, and especially the Self, is not under the same limitations. Jung’s eternal archetypal Self is probably the chief subject of disagreement with other psychologists, and one reason why mainstream materialistic psychologists fail to take him seriously. He is, however, taken seriously by today’s transpersonal psychologists.

 

WES, etc. January 10, 2011

Filed under: Beetles, The,Carrcass+2,Marty,Nowtown/Zen City,WES,West End — baker Blinker @ 3:06 am

Sad to say that most of what I’ve been calling Nowtown in this blog has become abandoned land, including this pool with an underwater bar.

However, the Brainwash Art Centre, snuggled underneath the rather towering green mount in Somerset, remains open.

Moving back to West End, Baker Bloch finds an inviting, cracked door in a house sitting right next to the blue-green pool with the double lidded chest full of gold buillion. He latches onto the idea that this represents an invitation to not only go within the house this one time, but perhaps many times — make this a home away from home for a spell, and a base to further explore the quite fascinating ins and outs of the West End community.

This is about the best view he can get from within of the blue-green pool. Can’t see the aforementioned chest from this vantage point, though, which lies on the opposite side of the small pool from here.

There *are* some great views of the giant coconut structure nearer to WES, though.

Looking up from directly beneath the mole statue commemorating the finding of the first sculpted prim. Right next to WES, as mentioned before.

Then some more details from WES itself.

As Baker Bloch walked away from the scene above after taking its picture, he turned around upon hearing a sawing noise to see the trucks just left behind enveloped in some sort of amorphous, blue blobby thing. Griefer attack?

More of the same then appeared in the skies in a different part of WES. *Two* coordinated attackers?

Baker attempted to remain calm while the sinister looking shapes gathered force around the town. He decided that ignoring it and going about his business there would be best choice to make. Below is a picture Baker subsequently took of a more interesting, corner building of WES (southwest).

Besides the one building on the eastern side with the lounging area, Baker found all buildings of WES devoid of objects, in continuing to poke around that night. The city appeared almost completely abandoned. If The Beetles were indeed in WES, it seems they have left the scene long ago; a dead city we have here.

The owner of West End Shippping (our “WES”), is Valin Frye, who use to run a popular SL dance venue called Club 9.13, doubling as its DJ. In checking his profile and information online, quickly found out that the club use to be situated in the Winchester sim on the Nautilus continent. Finding this former location on the inworld map, I was amused to see Winchester surrounded by a number of other MASH related names such as Radar, Trapper, Hawkeye, Klinger, Hunnicutt, Flagg, Potter, Mulchaey, McIntyre, Houlihan, Rizzo, and perhaps some others I’m not familiar with.

In his SL profile, Valin also quotes Peewee Herman from “Peewee’s Big Adventure” (“I’m a loner Dottie. A rebel.”), and lists having a lemonade stand and making lemonade as his only interests.

Random bits of unrelated information, it seems, but for various reasons I can’t fully disclose here, I think these are clues/breadcrumbs. Marty *has* been here!

 

Chatters… July 3, 2010

[delete 12 exchanges]

Hucka D.:

We better talk of the Valley of the Nye a bit as well.

bb:

Yes, thanks. But it’s Valley of Nye. Isn’t it?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Thanks in turn. Eye of Rye perched on the edge of the Valley of Nye, peering down into it almost. No, make that definitely. An eyeball on the edge. Chasm Deep turns the other direction.


http://www.cropcircleconnector.com/2010/oldsarum/comments.html

bb:

Valley of the Nye is directly associated with the Grand Canyon of Mars now, Hucka D. Coast to Coast.* From sea to shining sea. Shine on!

Hucka D. (in turn):

Shine on!

*****

bb:

The Bill came from this valley, perhaps from Mars itself. Crack in the world leading to Mars and back.

Hucka D.:

That’s *precisely* what it is. The Martians went to Corsica Prime and made it their home. They set up the Eye of Rye-Chasm Deep Sink duality, then the Ear of Beer.

bb:

So the Ear of Beer is actually Egg Hill Sink we’ve discussed rather in detail before.

******

Hucka D.:

Oh, the question. Well, what is the Nose of Rose if that’s the Ear of Beer?

bb:

That would be the Ruuster peninsula of the Nautilus continent, the one we, or I originally called the Eye of

*****

6/3/10:

“We continue the next night, Hucka D. We got cut off there at the end.”

Hucka D.:

No big woopie.

bb:

I’m not sure that what we’ve been calling the Ruuster peninsula is the actual Nose of Rose, if there is such a thing.

Hucka D.:

Rudolph [as you’ve guessed].

bb:

It *was* shiny. Shine on!

Hucka D. (not joining in this time):

That’s Hilo Peak. Abomination above water, Hilo Peak just below, the highest of the low. Hilo. (pause) Pre-Linden. Pre-Philip. Phillip.

bb:

I should look back at some of those related posts, Hucka D. But both The Abomination and Hilo Peak of Sansara are no more, having been leveled in [the meantime]. (pause)

*****

bb:

Sorry, got sidetracked [again].

Hucka D.:

The Valley of Nye is as long, virtually speaking, as the Grand Canyon of Mars, which would extend from the east coast of America to the west coast. Coast to Coast again, then. The Martians used this crack in timescape to penetrate our primary virtual reality, or the one they found most interesting.** They colonized the Corsica continent through Eye of Rye. They made the continent Corsica Prime a whole body, entered through the [left] eye. Ear of Beer is the Egg Hill Sink. The grid was based on squares 1/3rd the size of a “normal” SL sim, currently (256 x 256 meters). 1/3 was used to disguise the sims from later discovery, since their sides were an irrational number (85.33333…).

The nose [Nose of Rose presumably] has been displaced.

bb:

We’ve spoken about The Beatles, which you call The Beetles.

Hucka D.:

They are The Beetles because They are Variants. (continuing): Marty and Lemon and the rest explored the Valley of Nye with their yellow submarine. This was associated with their journeys through the Sea of Holes, Sea of Monsters, Sea of Green, and so forth and so on. There Lemon found The Bill and brought them back to Sunklands with them. The Bill extended [from] Coast to Coast. The Bill are the Martians. They are related or perhaps the same as The Phil, or just Phil. Phil Hill… Bill Hill. SL is Martian in origin as a whole, but only [in] Corsica Prime is this invasion physically obvious now through altered topography. Sunklands has stories remaining as well.

Your assignment: find and explore the displaced Nose of Rose. Is it Rudolph’s? (pause) And so forth.

bb:

Thank you, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Thank you also. Goodnight.

Nascera Expansion, 04 February 7, 2010

Filed under: Beetles, The,Lemmon,Marty,Nascera Continent — baker Blinker @ 5:26 pm

Newest picture of the Nascera continent expansion. Already it is quickly approaching the size of the smallest, present continents of Gaeta and Heterocera. For now, you can still clearly see the square extent of the original 64, now making up considerably less than half the total land.

And Baker was super pleased to see that whole sims have still been set aside in new development as buffering park regions, just as was the case with the original 64.

Moving to the southern part of the continent now, we have expansion in this direction of the fantasy themed region. The below ridge butts directly up against the west side of the old 64.

Interesting terrain just south of the channel running through the fantasy region, below the Bluebells sim. As of this writing, none of the new sims have specific names, nor can you teleport directly to them. Instead I, or Baker Bloch, had to teleport into the original 64 and fly into the newer regions.

While at the above location, Baker spotted an avatar hovering between two jagged hills directly in front of him, and decided, just out of curiosity, to see who it was. There weren’t many avatars in the new regions, and I think Baker had only encountered a couple of moles so far, busy making adjustments.

He focused in, and lo and behold the avatar turned out to be a JohnnyMac Lemmon, making Baker actually gasp at the time. Why the surprise? Well, it’s obviously a kind of mashup of names John Lennon and McCartney, and reference to these two names had *just appeared* on the cover of the newly minted second edition of Sunklands Today, a picture of which actually appears just beneath the photo below (if you’re viewing the blog from the home page). The specific reference is “What Marty Said; Lemon = Lennon?”. Marty, to remind regular readers, is a former spirit guide of the blog referred to as a Paul McCartney variant, with the name Marty being derived from an edited version of the letters of Paul’s surname. The name Lemon in this blog, according to Marty and perhaps Hucka D., refers directly, in turn, to John Lennon. Anyway, here with JohnnyMac Lemon, we have a eerily similar mashup of names McCartney and Lennon; hope you can grasp that queerness at least a bit. 🙂

Despite advertising himself as friendly and inviting others to say hi to him, Baker Bloch balked at direct contact. Best, he thought, just to take a picture and allow the associations to unfold within the blog.

Additional note: Mr. Lemmon apparently is staring directly toward the Bluebells/Corrigan ruins complex.
