Thanksgiving Preparations November 23, 2011

Filed under: Blue Mountain (rl town),Toy Avatars — baker Blinker @ 9:11 am

Among the several things T-Bonz helps out with Thanksgiving Eve night is the sealing of plastic bags. That’s actually famed toy avatar actor Dirk Stew working there, but he’s in character. Crooked Car Clyde wheels around and around between his legs, laughing and beeping all the time. Dirk, sorry T-Bonz only resists squashing the little fellow for fear of heading to Toy Avatar Prison again. Concept artist Ruddy Nobb, 1/2 cousin to the premiumly famous Mmmmmmm Grassy Noll, is kicking around a deformed green marble nearby and shouting “Bread!! Bread!!!” — more irritation for T-Bonz.

I’m surprised Edna got any food preparation done at all this night.

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):


http://www.appstate.edu/~brittanma/writing/10×10/booker18.html

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

NORRIS:

YOU.

 

one of these things is not like the other October 30, 2011

Hucka D.:

That’s Norris. My wife.

bb:

Fantastic, Hucka D. (!) Congratulations by the way. Why wasn’t I invited to the weeding, though? Wedding, I mean.

Hucka D.:

Quickie. No time for invites. Actually I’m no longer married to Norris. We were divorced a couple of hours ago. She’s just a bit too cold now.

bb:

Well, it *is* almost November.

Hucka D.:

My Money Pot. I’ll always remember her. But now she’s a company. She owns a company[ I mean].

bb:

Do you work for this company? NORRIS, I take it[ is the name of the company].

Hucka D.:

I do (!) We do channeling. Like stream channels.

bb:

Do you dig stream channels?

Hucka D.:

Love ’em, in fact.

bb:

What does your company do? Details I mean.


Norris explains NORRIS (company)

Hucka D.:

We give Voice to things. Like someone gave us a voice[ at one time].

bb:

Interesting. Who are your clients?

Hucka D.:

Squirrels so far. And cats.

bb:

Is your company the 4th, or the Foreign One or 4-in-1?


Norris as The Arab

Hucka D.:

It is the Voice. The 4th. The thing unformed because it can’t compete with the cuteness of the Original Three. Why even try?

bb:

Are the cats aware of this 4th?

Hucka D.:

Yes! Indeed.

bb:

Do they know it as NORRIS?

Hucka D.:

No. (pause)

bb:

I have some more pictures of the Voice Rock, but they’re still not very good.

Hucka D.:

Shadows. Fog.


Norris as The Voice

bb:

I mean, I’m sure it means something, but I have years and years and years to figure it out. It’s protected.

Hucka D.:

Sure. The stream, the channel, is artificial, no?

bb:

This one?

The channel [Mouth of NORRIS] really does look artificial, Hucka D. Like it was dug.

Hucka D. (repeating):

Love it.

bb:

It really *is* suppose to represent a throat (!)

Hucka D.:

Yes. This stream is peculiar. Money Pot.

bb:

The heart of the stream. I don’t have any suitable pictures, yet, of the Money Pot. Nor Root Bridge, really, although this one kind of shows what is going on[ Root Bridge crossing NORRIS].

Hucka D.:

You’ve already shown that one.

bb:

I’m doing it again.

Hucka D.:

Get a better picture. NORRIS isn’t happy. Money, after all, is the root of all evil to-day.

bb:

Did the [presence of the] Money Pot make NORRIS unhappy?

Hucka D.:

Ultimately, it’s what led to the divorce. Money.

bb:

Money is Oz.

Hucka D.:

Yes it is. Indeed it is.

bb:

I want to tell you and the reader a story or a bit of one. I went to NORRIS today, as I did yesterday, and I fell asleep at one of the clear spots. A squirrel starting chattering while I was half-asleep, apparently, and I swore that the creek was imitating that chattering with its bubbling, as best as it could. Strange illusion for sure if it wasn’t real.

Hucka D.:

Oh it was real.

bb:

I just knew you were going to say[ something like] that.

Hucka D.:

And as I understand[ from NORRIS], you saw the spark in the creek. That’s NORRIS[ once more].

bb:

Yes. I imagined the spark in the creek as well. Very bright if small.

Hucka D.:

That’s the star that is the creek.

bb:

Thanks for that. I’m going to the Money Pot tomorrow, although I won’t have much time after work.

Hucka D.:

Get a dang blasted good pic of it, then.

bb:

I’ll try. Do you want to say more about the Money Pit and Root Bridge, perhaps?

Hucka D.:

Too close, yet. Too painful still. It is the deep mystery. How to deal with money[ when it comes to you].

bb:

Oh, and Wallace3 lived at the Money Pot.

Hucka D.:

Oh yes.

bb:

And this region was also known as Houston at one time.

Hucka D.:

Then we have a problem.

bb:

Yeah? Well, what is it, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

That was a joke. Take it easy (!)

bb:

“Houston we have a problem.” Oh yeah.

Hucka D. (repeating):

Oh yeah.

bb:

Houston is two[ Minnesota] and three[ Alabama] together in one.

Hucka D.:

Corner. The 4th.


Norris as the Not-Cat

—–

While Hucka D. is away I thought I’d theorize more about his Money Pot, too painful for him to go into now, as he said. I believe the Money Pot is or has been[ or will be] disguised as the Monkey Pot, which is also a Pit. Monkey City reborn in essence, and Wallace3 there. Houston, with its ultimate (4th) corner properties. Calypso is the higher octave of Monkey City in Wazob octaves. Calypso is in Duplin County, along with Wallace (and attached Tin City, which it has basically swallowed) and Humphrey. This is the 1968 presidential election making Nixon the Crook our 37th president beyond 36 [Vice-President].

This is Pope. THIS IS POPE. Norris. NORRIS. Pope, POPE. The last president of the Confederation. Wheeler and The Triumvirate take over after this. Wheeler, Anderson, Norris. I think. Wheeler from Hayes, as Wilson is from Grant who is Nixon.
