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.

Pain Of Loss… July 23, 2008

The Edwardston sim is apparently no more. S-Bum looks from what use to be the edge of the sim into emptiness.

Poor S-Bum!

Those turned out better than I thought they would. S-Bum may have to shift to Poster World view for a while. 🙂

Esbum’s Pond

Filed under: Delphic Archipelago — baker Blinker @ 3:57 am

Thought I’d throw in a more high definition photo this time of what Hucka D. is calling Esbum’s Pond now. The two parts of the pond appear to be of about equal area. Hucka D. thinks this is meaningful. More soon on that.

Then back to my regular resolution shots. Some interesting photos of the pond and S-Bum with camera constraints disabled. Through the photo below you can get a good idea of the two parts of the pond and the size and depth of each. S-Bum sits on a platform that lies below the surface of one side of the pond, complete with a fire and also 2 rocks to sit on and admire it from.

Up through the lily pads.

Is S-Bum getting younger?? Maybe it’s just the effects of the pond.
🙂

On the other side of the pond now looking up as S-Bum looks down at us.

But then to the task at hand. The Missing Piece is magically broken in two…

….and reduced to a singular point accompanied by a dance of ghostly lights.

S-Bum Finds Victorian House Gone, But No Time For That Now — To Edwardston!

Filed under: Delphic Archipelago,Temple of TILE — baker Blinker @ 1:20 am
Tags: ,

S-Bum wakes up to the view of the almost transparent “Missing Piece” and the waterfall behind it. She sits in First Chair a bit studying the scenery before heading back to Edwardston again. She has something specific in mind tonight (!)

But first down to the ground level of the property to view all that’s left of the Victorian house. S-Bum never even went in the place; no attachments will be missed there.

The pool underneath the house remains for now, inside the still standing foundation walls.

S-Bum revisits the only ground structure now left on my properties, which is Hidalgo Gallery. She looks out the east window to the now Victorian House-less view. Then south toward the empty sim again. S-Bum, like all the avatars of the Blink Or It’s Over group, enjoy occassionally sitting in the gallery and looking out these windows.

Then it’s off to Edwardston…

A view up from what Hucka D. is now calling Esbum’s Pond. More on that in a post above…

S-Bum Wanderings Again — Edwardston, 1 July 17, 2008

S-Bum then moves into the next sim over from Afar, also a part of the [delete name] Archipelago. This quickly becomes her favorite of the 3 sims included in this particular grouping. This is Edwardston.

In the inlet pictured below is one of the two locations I know of in the archipelago to find the aforementioned Starax goldfish. A number of varieties of these goldfish are presently swimming around there.

Those rocks S-Bum is standing on date from August, 2007, making them one of the latest owner creations I’ve found in the area.

Moving inland into the dense forest…

Where’d you go S-Bum?

Another mysterious flying machine owned by the Afar group. S-Bum doesn’t dare to attempt to fly it, though.

A beautiful little two section pond in the north center of the sim. S-Bum thinks: “Hucka D. has his pond in the area; perhaps this is *my* pond.”

View of pointy mtn. in the distance from near the pond.

Then on the west edge of the sim S-Bum comes across this tent and campfire, a discovery touched upon in the Bliss Gardens related post below this one. The tent is an Arcadia Asylum creation and so are several other objects in the area, including the campfire itself. S-Bum thinks to herself that she has found a home away from home (temple).

(Holy Howl’s Moving Castle!)

 

More Wanderings, Part 1 July 15, 2008

One more pic of the lavender colored snapdragons in the sewer, since deleted. Butterflies were around as well… left with the flowers. 😦

More shots of the Afar region from S-Bum. Two seats on a mountaintop near the palm cluster shown previously.



Tired from the hike up the steep slopes.



After a rest, S-Bum continues up the ridge past the chairs and to the tip top…



What a view!

Then it’s back down to the flatter land and a visit to the pond Hucka D. was so fascinated with at one time, seemingly long ago but probably only a little over a month past. Time is a very queer thing in SL! (things change so fast.)

A view looking from near the north lip of the pond toward one of those spear-headed cypresses that populated the immediate region.

Back toward Hucka D.’s pond again after hiking a bit up the range containing the palm tree cluster S-Bum so likes…

Here you can see all of the large cypresses surrounding the pond, 7 in all if I’m counting right. What’s called a “stone platform” upon inspection was created in July 2007, making it one of the latest owner owned objects I’ve found in the area. I’ll attempt to theorize, perhaps, about “civilizations” that visited this area soon.

Stone platform and palm tree cluster together…
