The Far And Yd Influence of Carrcass-1 December 31, 2009

Filed under: Carrcass-1,Delphic Archipelago,Greenup Yd.,Hucka D.,Sapphire — baker Blinker @ 4:45 am

I’m going to attempt some words myself before bringing in Hucka D., perhaps, regarding this important subject.

Sapphire:

Hidden influence… gravity… hole.

bb:

Oh, you’re here already (!)

Sapphire:

Here to protect. Hucka D. sent me over.

bb:

Protect against what’s-out-there?

Sapphire:

That 36-circle — those 36-circles — are a game of Madagascar solitaire with the center removed. Hole.

bb:

ESBUM Michigan. Or just the UM part, then. Want to talk about ESBUM instead?

Sapphire:

Yes.

bb:

You want me to start, then?

Sapphire:

(no answer)

bb:

First off, this is not quite what I expected for this post. I wanted to give my overview of the Carrcasses… but Sapphire is instead directing me back to think of Esbum Michigan, an old avatar since deleted. First of this year… 2009 (is when it happened). Esbum is the carrcass, then?

Sapphire:

Yes?

bb:

Can I talk about Carrcass-2 and Carrcass-3 in any detail, Sapphire? Or will Hucka D. allow me to do so?

Sapphire:

(pause) He will let you speak of Esbum. Michigan.

bb:

Can I at least ask about the next Carrcass? Carrcass-4, I suppose.

Sapphire:

(no answer)

bb:

How about the Ancients? The original Ones of this blog. Missing Piece?

Sapphire:

Missing Piece is fine.

bb:

The 37th. Beyond the 36. Even to odd, then. The piece removed to start the play of game. The void center. The 37th piece of the old Temple of TILE. Removed from the temple and placed into Esbum’s Pond, turning it into a single pond, but almost immediately wiped off the grid. The whole Delphic Archipelago, Sapphire.

Sapphire:

She never got over this loss, as I understand it baker b. Then she herself was deleted.

bb:

We had to. She got out of control. Downward spiral and all.

Sapphire:

She has returned.

bb:

Odd… what do you mean by that?

Sapphire:

In order to go forward you must go backwards.

bb:

Are you talking about the progression of [carrcasses]?

Sapphire:

Meddletown is an answer.* A part of the path forward that also returns. You are at the center and must move backwards and forward at once. I am along the path as well.

bb:

Should I have… never mind.

Hucka D.:

I have arrived in time for dessert. Hello baker b.

bb:

That it for Sapphire?

Hucka D.:

Tonight maybe.

bb:

Why don’t you want me to speak about the subject I intended to tonight?

Hucka D.:

You can talk about anything you want to, baker b. It’s your blog. The Baker Blinker Blog. BB’s blog… make that bb’s blog.

bb:

(pause) I had so much to say… like it just evaporated…

Hucka D.:

Cat got your tongue[, then]?

bb:

Maybe I should just look over the Chilbo proposal… maybe return to this post later on.

Hucka D.:

You best look to Michigan and Kentucky. Back to roots. Source. Sapphire is correct… you are in the center and the way out is in both directions. It’s always, “what next?”, but in this case it’s also “what went on before?” You can’t keep mounting material after material in an endless fashion.

bb:

Is this the beginning of the end of the blog here, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

You have a plan.

bb:

Yes, a 7 year plan (for the blog).

Hucka D.:

Better shorten it (!)

bb (defending his claim):

I am a resident now, Hucka D. That counts (for something).

Hucka D.:

You know what I’m going to say.

bb:

Chilbo needs Korean Channel needs Sunklands needs Chilbo… what exactly does that mean, though?

Hucka D.:

I want to call in someone else but there’s no one left tonight. Greenup Yd perhaps? (calling): Greenup?

Greenup Yd:

Here. Beer. We’re. Steer. Clear. Cheers! Cheer, I meant. Mean. Clean. Meat. Wheat. Seat. Sofa. Cushion. Fall. Wiped. Clean. Ocean. Esbum. Michigan. Michigan.

bb:

Is Esbum Michigan inside, somehow, the Nascera continent, Greenup Yd?

Greenup Yd:

Fascinating GY. Yes.

bb:

At the Infohub?

Greenup Yd:

Water… ocean. Clean. game. Clear. Same. Sane. Ocean. Sane. Offer. Ocean. Sanity. Sanitized.

bb:

In the southern river, then?

Hucka D.:

We better end. Thank you all.

(to be continued?)

*****

* Meddletown is apparently the same as the Meddledown sim of what I call Yd Island (pronounced: Wide Island). Interesting new development on that front for sure! I’ll talk soon about that.

 

We Must Press More Forward, Hucka D. December 7, 2009

Filed under: Greenup Yd.,Hucka D.,Toy Avatars,Yd Island — baker Blinker @ 9:30 am

Greenup Yd.:

Hi baker Beach.

bb:

Hello. How are you?

Greenup Yd.:

I am.

bb:

That’s good.

Greenup Yd.:

Yes.

bb:

Do you wish to talk about the hole tonight?

Greenup Yd.:

I am in it. You are in it. All are in.

bb:

In love?

Greenup Yd.:

I am VILE.

bb:

But you flip that around and you have LOVE.

Greenup Yd.:

You will not be able to get in at this moment. Sealed.

bb:

I know. When will I be able to get in?

Greenup Yd.:

28 days.

bb:

About a month[, then]. Do you know about the loss of The Sun, which is the same as The Temple?

Hucka D.:

I am here. Yes, that Sun loss is causing problems already, baker b. I think you must reinstate the temple. The power of The Hole is strong in your region. Wind and such.

bb:

I could rent the second 1024 in the sim and build the temple there, or just put it on top of the ESG, like I had it in Ichalon [for one].

Hucka D.:

That might be good. (pause)

bb:

How long will I stay on Yd Island? I know that’s a dumb question.

Hucka D.:

28 days.

bb:

Then, er, I’ll go into the opened hole?

Hucka D.:

No. You will go home.

bb:

To Jeogeot?

Hucka D.:

Yes. This is not your true home. Baker Bloch’s I mean.

bb:

Should I stay in Sunklands?

Hucka D.:

I can’t tell you. Won’t you miss the Aotearoa sink?

bb:

Yes. But there’s isolation [to it].

Hucka D.:

The hole will open in 28 days. You have 28 days.

bb:

Yes. Greenup Yd. already told me. How did you run upon this entity again?

Hucka D.:

Greenup Yd. is the spirit of Yd. Island and also The Hole. And maybe Nautilus City Island as well. And the surrounding seas or oceans. Not Blake Sea, though. I don’t think. Not the entire Nautilus continent either. Mostly Yd Island, then, I suppose. He wrote a book about it.

bb:

Yd Island?

Hucka D.:

Drink Lake is the same as the sea surrounding Yd Island, as you’ve already speculated about.

bb:

Tell me the relationship — more about it, if you can…

Hucka D.:

VILE caused it.

bb:

VILE is the same as Greenup Yd., though.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

Someone at the end of last week requested a student file named Parsons, which we couldnt’ find despite looking in 3 different collections. I thought about Parsons Vale, which is on the other side of the Mmmmmm’s homeground, thinking they might be related.

Hucka D.:

You have a vague equivalent of Rabbit Head in that homeground.

bb:

I suppose if I rent that other 1024 in Villeneuve, I would live symbolically on the shores of Drink Lake, perhaps at Drink Lake Beach where Grassy was sunning that one day I took pictures of him.

Hucka D.:

No Drink Lake Dam in this [Second Lyfe] reality, though.

bb:

There was a point when I was hiking around today (I went to Drink Lake today), when I looked up in the meadow and thought, this is just like looking up from Rabbit Head in Ratzenberger to the above ridge. There was even a protuberance near the top, just like in this photo. Couldn’t really make out what it was — maybe a bale of hay. Not a cow, though, although they were in the meadow in other places.

Hucka D.:

You have 28 days. We better end.

bb;

Thank you both.

 

Wider than the sea… December 4, 2009

Filed under: Greenup Yd.,Hucka D.,Yd Island — baker Blinker @ 11:10 am

“I miss Plant, Hucka D.”

Hucka D.:

You wanna speak to him?

bb:

Is that the Sunklands guy again? Greenup Yd.?

Hucka D.:

Yeah. Here he or she or it is.

Greenup Yd.:

Hello baker Beach.

bb:

Hmmm… you use my real name, like Plant use to do.

Greenup Yd.:

Still does. How do you like me so far?

bb:

You mean the island?

Greenup Yd.:

Yes. Me.

bb:

Well, it’s really quite fascinating in places. Maybe — dare I say — the most interesting place yet I’ve lived at in Second Lyfe. I supposed I’ve also “y-ed” SL now, Greenup Yd..

Greenup Yd.:

I am/ am not Vileness Flats.

bb:

The giant fish… yes, I was going to ask about that tonight.

Greenup Yd.:

I am not the fish. Yet I am. Inside-out. Feet on the ground and up in the air.

bb:

Greenup and yellow down, then.

Greenup Yd.:

I am a measure. The Measure.

bb:

Hucka D. mentioned that the Vileness fish is color blind, but in the impossible green-yellow spectrum. That is, as Hucka D. put it, if Vileness fish could drive a car, he would be constantly running through yellow lights with no hesitation, thinking they were green. Maybe you have the same vision problem, then?

Greenup Yd.:

Nes. Yo.

bb:

Dyslexic. Don’t worry, I am too a bit. Very often, I’ll write in this blog that something is east of something else and I’ll recheck and see it is west.

Greenup Yd.:

The fish is a bird [then].

bb:

When I told Hucka D. that green-yellow is not a true color blindness condition (most commonly red-green but sometimes blue-yellow), he countered, unperturbed, by saying there’s also a blue-red color blindness…

Greenup Yd.:

Fish. Fish. (pause) Fish.

bb:

Physh?

Hucka D.:

We better tuck him back in for the night. The Island, ladies and gents. You’re going to see he likes to measure things in yards, perhaps fabric.

bb:

Nice. I assume you want me to go back to The Measure soon.

Hucka D.:

Go every night if you wish. You’ll see how Yd Island is more interesting than the more planned Nautilus City Island, at least now and in the present.

bb:

Oh… what about Rabbit Head??

Hucka D.:

That’s a direct carryover or imprint from Big Sink and Sunklands. To remember them by. It’s a Bozho.

bb:

Bunny Boy mentions Nanabozho, Hucka D.*

Hucka D.:

Bunny Boy is one smarter f*cker.

bb (playfully reprimanding):

Hucka D.! I’ve never heard you use foul language.

Hucka D.:

Fowl.

bb:

And I think you’re going to say…

Hucka D. (interrupting):

The Numbers, right. You can see them in [this picture], on one of the ears.** 28064212.

bb:

About the same time as a lunar cycle[, then].

Hucka D.:

It is the same. It is The Moon. Sun and Moon as one and all and all in one.

bb:

Obviously, Hucka D., I had to get rid of The Sun in my move to Yd Island. Still have The Moon, though.

Hucka D.:

The Sun must return sometime.***

bb:

Can we talk more of the Vileness fish tonight?

Hucka D. (measured):

Green. Red. Blue. (pause) Yellow. Green. (pause) Red. Blue.

bb:

TILE, then?

Hucka D.:

Better end. Save me a waffle iron.

bb:

Oh… ok. Goodnight.

Hucka D.:

Goodnight.

Introducing Greenup Yd. November 25, 2009

Filed under: Carrcass-1,Greenup Yd.,Hucka D.,Plant — baker Blinker @ 1:40 pm

“Plant… Mr. Plant… I have a feeling that incorporating you into Greenup Yd. will represent more problems than it’s worth.”

Plant:

I have jelly.

bb:

Hucka D. around?

Hucka D.;

I’m in a jam at the moment. Talk to Plant.

Plant:

Jelly? (offers jelly jar, w/ spoon, to baker b.)

bb:

Well… what about the middle of GY?

Plant:

Why ask? Plant.. bird… plant.

Greenup Yd.:

Hovering over the center is a bird of paradise.

bb:

Wow. Hi Greenup Yd.. Should I pronounce that “Yard”?

Greenup Yd.:

Yes. Talking bird. 60x60x60 cube square. Howevering.

bb:

Hovering, you mean.

Greenup Yd.:

Uniko, da.

bb;

Are you Petemond? By the way, um, whomever, I think Petemond may really stand for Piedmont.

Greenup Yd.:

You will look at the bottom floor of ESG and you will see. Me.

bb:

You are the same as the Greenup series of collages, then.

Greenup Yd.:

Also look on top of a mountain shared by Virginia and West Virginia. Tile. Yippie. Hippie. Ippie. Eppie.

bb:

I think you are Petemond, Greenup Yd.

*****

Greenup Yd.:

North and South. Yards and Yards. Greenup Yd.

bb:

Yellow is rat. Reinforced by ___ chasing rat instead of bird he was assigned to chase.

Greenup Yd.:

Plant wants to be over Marty but can’t. He doesn’t want to talk about it. A lot of work was put into [their songs].

bb:

Maybe in this one… *you*… he can for a moment.

Greenup Yd.:

No. You are seeing that. Sunklands is owned by Marty extended through Lemon extended through Marty.

bb:

What is your role in this continuing evolution?

Greenup Yd.:

Contained. Return to olden days. Healing and sealing of the old split.

bb:

Are you the same as the Vileness fish who lives or lived on the bottom of Drink Lake?

Greenup Yd.:

Yes.

bb:

Interesting. Are you a bird as well, then?

Greenup Yd.:

Yes. I am green up and yellow down.

bb:

Can you tell me your appearance as a bird?

Greenup Yd.:

Yes.

bb:

Thank you.

Greenup Yd.:

Take a closer look please.

bb:

Ok.

Greenup Yd.:

No, please. At the ground.

bb:

Oh… alright. Let’s see…

That’s kind of scary.

Greenup Yd.:

Dixey’s Pisnar.

bb:

Strange. If not real.

Greenup Yd.:

Real enough. Arkansas.

bb:

Oh… Greenup is Missouri, then??

Greenup Yd.:

Keep looking…

bb:

Icke. Bunny Boy went to Hope, Arkansas, but I don’t think he saw Bill around.

Greenup Yd.:

The Bill.

bb:

Well, too much at that site to absorbe. Icke, I mean. Reminds me… *Bill* Buehler.

Greenup Yd. (repeating):

Bill.

bb:

Well, we should probably end. Thank you GY.

GY:

I’ll be around for a while. Thank you.
