Aotearoa — 1 Month In November 10, 2009

Filed under: Heartland USA Tour,Hucka D.,Pink Floyd/Syd Barrett,Plant — baker Blinker @ 10:12 am

Little over a month since I began renting in Aotearoa. Not bored yet! Sure I’ll probably move away sometime, but for now I still feel I have more to look at and explore and build there. No neighbors in the sim yet… not sure when it will happen, even, since all the land has been abandoned. Guess I should spend more time there just hanging in my cottage and looking down into the heart of the sink. If my home computer were more powerful, I could multitask while sitting there. Oh well; I probably spend enough time in SL already.

Need to take more RL photographs. Perhaps this weekend. Had perfect weather on Sun. but forgot my camera. Oh, Parson’s Vale story is coming up, on other side of Mmmmmm’s homeland. Inhabited by talking birds (?) or family named Byrd. They moved to the Vale to interact with the Mmmmmmm’s and the toy avatars in general, but I don’t think they’re avatars in that respect. Must also tell story of that big rock near CREEK — was it known to the Mmmmmm’s? Mossmen? Will take pictures soon of that as well. Would of course like to go back to Darkside sometime soon as well… need to think about potential toy happening there.

Parson’s Vale is connected to the new “Ruins in the Woods” exhibit in the Temple of TILE at Aotearoa, a restoration project as I’ve said. One can say they come from the ruins.

New “Carrcass-1” may be coming up, related to all this recent blog talk. Sinking into Sunklands.

Can’t forget maps either…

“Hucka D.?”

Hucka D.:

Chilbo needs Korean Channel needs Sunklands needs Chilbo.

bb:

Jeogeot as a whole, then. Like on my map in Chilbo.

Hucka D. (correcting):

Mangyeong. Keep renting there.

bb:

Right. I’ll think about it. Would any of these be physically possible without the other?

Hucka D.:

No. All 3 need each other. Perfect triangle.

bb:

It has something to do with the E. Which way you look at it. Big E or Big Schwa that is.

Hucka D.:

And you must think more about the relationship of the 3rd and 4th continents. Rabbit Holes. Ancient. Sinks not as much. Rubisea older than Sunklands.

bb:

I think I might next rent in the Lake District of Maebaleia again, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Wait.

bb:

No, I mean a small rental, if that’s what you’re getting at.

Hucka D.:

Bluedrake is best. Blue Drake and his posse are pipe worshipers [worshipipers?], as you now know.

bb:

Can you tell me more about your father Kelley the Bee Man now, Hucka D.? I think before I speculated that you yourself may even be your own father.

Hucka D.:

I’d rather start out by talking about your Heartland USA Tour… I’m excited!

bb:

Well, I’ll be primarily focused on Arkansas and Missouri. I plan to take many pictures for this blog. I will visit Sunklands, Missouri and Sunk Lands, Arkansas. Dogpatch… that’s very important. Joplin, Missouri. Maybe stop at Branson just to see what that’s all about. May stand outside Andy William’s’ Moon River Theatre and listen to him croon Moon River, if only to help alleviate the memory of Little Robert Plant Variant murdering the same.

Hucka D.:

You must, of course, go to The Bends where Grassy and I attempted and completely failed to build an Earthy version of the Temple of TILE.

bb:

That was on Arnold Bend, right?

Hucka D.:

Tyler.

bb:

Then we also plan to stop at Oxford, Mississippi and visit Faulkner’s house there.

Hucka D.:

St. Louis?

bb:

Not sure. [Delete name] would perhaps be happy to know we went.

Hucka D.:

Peter, you mean

bb:

Yeah. Suppose. Grassy as well.

Hucka D.:

Yeah. I miss the little guy. Little Grassy guy.

bb:

Where’s he been, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

He’s still in Big Four, West Virginia, trying to get out of aisle 32 of the super WalMart there with his Pink Floyd CD.

bb:

No way. Maybe I should go up and get him, then.

Hucka D.:

You’d never find him. He is with The Bills anyway.

bb:

The Bills?

Hucka D.:

Or Bill. Bills… Bill. Did you know the Buffalo Bills might want Michael Vick?

bb:

Heard that. Also the joke about Cleveland not being a good fit for him because of [the presence of] the Dawg Pound.

Hucka D.:

Cleveland rocks, though. Ask Drew.

Plant:

Hi.

bb:

Hi Plant.

Hucka D.:

Ooops, he’s gone.

bb:

Hi Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Plant said you found the Plant City connection. Good! Morningside is Drews, yes?

bb:

Yes?

Hucka D.:

Not as interesting, you see. Barren [of imagination]. Water level 10 meters lower. Artificial division between the two sides of Second Sink. *

bb:

That the official name now? Second Sink?

Hucka D.:

Why not. Or Second Synk.

bb:

When I reach the age of Robert Plant Variant, it will be gone, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Enjoy!

Plant:

Hi.

bb:

Yes, hello Plant. You have something to say tonight?

Plant:

No.

Hucka D.:

So you’re going to Driver, Arkansas aren’t you? Wilson-Driver? Deckerville. Gilmore. Marked Tree. Truemann. Herman. Herman.

bb:

The 2 Hermans? Just looked that up for pagination on Sunday, I believe.

Hucka D.:

You should work on that through the blog. Might help Chilbo even.

bb:

I did think about 78, 156, 234.

Plant:

Page.

bb:

Page*s*. 78 apart.

Hucka D.:

Triangle. Which one’s First.
