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!

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.

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.

 

Thoughts… Chat… June 8, 2011

Filed under: Carrcass+3,Corsica Continent,Fisher Rigg,Uncategorized — baker Blinker @ 9:43 am

Should be able to catch up with text for recent photo oriented posts before the week’s end.

It looks like Pietmond won’t be revived in any way after all — abandoned land just last night. Crabwoo rental will stick around for now, although I may delete temple if I don’t start hanging around there more. Focus will be on skybox.

Very tempted still, admittedly, to buy land on the Corsica continent and near what I’m calling Fisher Rigg, although I’m not sure that would be a wise idea.

Focus may go elsewhere. I need to work on maps; set up basement studio again. “Hucka D.?”

Hucka D.:

Corsica is a bit different in that it is 4d. Fisher Rigg is another layer to this. Arthur and Old Arthur still have tales to tell.

bb:

I do know that Peter SoSo went to the Corsica continent first from Crabwoo, probably before Pietmond as well.

Hucka D.:

You think he might have gone to Fisher Rigg?

bb:

I’m not sure. I’ve speculated the same about Asha before. Maybe both.

Hucka D.:

Fisher Rigg came after Asha. Fascinating town but ill fitted, somewhat like W4N1.

bb:

I think we should call that something else, Hucka D. Carrcass+3 I believe would be the correct enumeration.

Hucka D.:

Why the inability to convince people of level 3 through this particular carrcass, then? Why did Peter feel the need to settle near Fisher Rigg? To support the cause?

bb:

I think Peter saw Fisher Rigg as the center of a spinning crop circle or crop circle formation. Like the Pennsylvania crow at the center of the Crabwoo crop circle.

Hucka D.:

Correct. He saw Pennsylvania in Corsica. Then Corsica became Maebaleia or Satori. But it didn’t.

bb:

It was actually moved. Through the crop circle somehow.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Peter saw his future in Fisher Rigg and the proper Corsica continent through the Pennsyvania crow. It actually spoke to him; stated its name to him. “I am Pennsylvania and here’s how it’s going to be,” and so forth.

bb:

Residents had to be attracted to Fisher Rigg. And I think this collage from the Wheeler series has something to do with all this, Hucka D.:

http://bakerbloch.wordpress.com/2009/03/02/wheeler-07-collage/

Hucka D.:

Well, you’ve just given up the sink. You’re packing the Edwardston Station Gallery up.

bb:

I was just at the Ornaglyph gallery [once more] last night, Hucka D. Just stopping by, even sat inside for a moment. It’s all gray inside and out now.

Hucka D.:

The cube version of the Edwardston Station Gallery use to sit on the hill above[ as well]. It still sits in a sink, just like the silver sign in that collage. It’s still there.

bb:

Blackmount you mean. True. Then I suppose this collage also would apply here in some way. Another from the Wheeler series:

http://bakerbloch.wordpress.com/2009/03/02/wheeler-04-collage/

*****

bb:

Maybe Fisher Rigg is where Carrcass+3 should be played in Second Life, Hucka D. Like it was suppose to play in that treehouse long ago but instead Kansas City Life came on the screen. Second Life again…

Hucka D.:

“Constantinople” should be playing. Yd Island tie-in. That’s where it begins. Fishers Rest.

Fishers of men(1), fishers of men
Up one side and back again
Along the river of men

Our trusty oars are in the boat
Along the river of men
(Sing with me, John!)
