Special December 17, 2011

“Sinkology is a word to be thinking of tonight, Hucka D.”

Hucka D.:

You want to open up a [small] college in Pietmond, as I understand.

bb:

Maybe. Branch of Crabwoo U. in Pietmond.

Hucka D.:

Don’t you think Peter[ SoSo] should be involved, then?

bb:

Again: maybe. Sunklands doesn’t seem quite dead, now. I’ve reexamined the Lill Burn Valley sim recently, for instance. It’s much different than in the days of the monestary, but not necesssarily a degenerative form.

Hucka D.:

Yes. It has degenerated. Become deenergized. That’s because the present tenants do not realize the power of the sink.

bb:

Oh, and quite interestingly another artist has interacted with my old land in Blackmount[ in another of the 6 Sunklands sinks].

Hucka D.:

Yes, that was another way to get your attention. Waterfall down to the pool that engulfed your camp there. Elevator — sorry, teleporter had to be raised above the water level to effect a proper transport [to the Edwardston Station Gallery]. The artist will examine all this. She needs to know about the power of the sinks. Sinkology. Sink in.

bb:

The theory goes that the Pietmond labyrinth — just outside the proposed building for the new college branch — plugs a similar flooding hole in my town. Plugs from above instead of on one side, as in a normal dam of sorts. But this type of flooding won’t occur in Pietmond as long as the labyrinth is in place. The Blackmount sink has been ruined in that way.

Hucka D.:

Yes. The artist will examine all of this. It is an Eerie Pond.

bb:

What of the other sinks? Second Sink or Oolamoo/Drews seems totally deenergized.

Hucka D.:

Not quite. Things could change there.

bb:

And Aotearoa, the one closest to Otaki Gorge and Pietmond, has basically always been empty since I found it almost 2 1/2 years ago. The center, I mean. That’s the location of the original Pietmond, I suppose.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

But up on a hill above the sink, and not in the sink itself, unlike Pietmond.

Hucka D.:

Unlike Pietmond. And the last?

bb:

Big Sink. The strangest of them all, perhaps.

Hucka D.:

You know where Big Sink comes from.
You know it was created from the Big Ink incident in Far Past. You have Kidd Road as a new mythology bit. Big Sink still has energy. Kidd Road connects Big Sink with Blackmount.

bb:

I think I’ve theorized that *you* created Big Sink and perhaps all of Sunklands.

Hucka D.:

Yes. And then the 2 on the Corsica continent. They’re connected. Smaller Sunklands there. Not really a region but just a connection, as in a Klein Bottle. Nevertheless, Corsica is built around this center 3-dimensionality. And Maebaleia has its own sinks, but shallower and nearer the coasts. Crabwoo itself has a sink [Super Bowl = name?], the 13th discovered. And then Heterocera may have a legitimate sink in Sikkima, one you virtually lived next to for a number of months but didn’t recognize as such.

bb:

But no region like Sunklands.

Hucka D.:

There’s the Pond District on Heterocera as well. And the Lake District of Maebaleia. Corsica has the Plane of Bill and its bumpy little granite mountains dotting the landscape. But it all centers around Chasm Deep and partner Egg Hill Sink, the one Sachie lived in and energized. Still energizes.

bb:

Synchronicity, yes.

Hucka D.:

An egg is an eye. Orion’s Vale has its own, central eye, like Pietmond and Otaki Gorge.

bb:

Suppose it does. Or did. Is Orion’s Vale the most similar sink to Otaki Gorge?

Hucka D.:

In terms of who lived in each: yes. Two artists.

bb:

And Chasm Deep has a collection of artists living within now: the Metaharpers.

Hucka D.:

Join their group.

bb:

Maybe I’ll have an avatar devoted fully to the study of Sinkology, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Karoz?

bb:

Maybe a professor of Sinklogy.

Hucka D. (guessing further):

Wilsonia?

bb:

Yes. Maybe Wilsonia.

Hucka D.:

Maybe Karoz.

bb:

I need a Sunklands museum. A place of study as well. Special Collections.

“What would get Baker B.’s attention in Second Life and keep him there for a while. I know: a Sunklands!”

Hucka D.:

And that’s how it started. It’s going back home.

Pietmond Updates, Loose Thoughts… December 17, 2010

Filed under: Big Sink,Otaki Gorge,Pietmond — baker Blinker @ 8:55 am

Still shuffling around the outlining buildings of Pietmond, including moving the slum apt. skyscraper to the northern edge of downtown, replacing Lime House. Then after some more trials couldn’t find another spot for Lime House in the town, so I had to delete it for now.

Looking west from the rooftop bar toward a duplicate House of Truth now set up where the skyscraper apts. mentioned above use to sit.

But my biggest project for the night was an expansion of the just exposed Underground Pietmond, making it into 2 large rooms. I even have several easels set up down there in the newer of the two rooms, pictures pending.

I’m not sure how much more expansion I can do at Pietmond now, given that I’m rather low on prims and the lag around Main Way is about as high as I’d comfortably want it. But I feel like one more, big project is in the making. I don’t believe I want to invite another guest artist to show their work right now — would dilute the current pool, perhaps. Gallery Jack and Blue Feather are safely tucked away in distant Teepot. If I built a new gallery on the other side of the TILE Cathedral, then, what would go in it? And I perhaps need to work on reducing lag around Main Way, but not sure how that would be accomplished.

Maybe I just need to start focusing outward, away from Pietmond and toward Sunklands and Jeogeot in general. Will write up need blog entry descriptions for Norum gallery exhibit tomorrow. Maybe Hucka D. can help pull me out.

Hucka D.:

You wish to ask about Big Ink, I understand.

bb:

Yes.

Hucka D.:

Ask away friend.

bb:

Let me read what else I have first. May be something more urgent to talk about. (pause) No, I can’t find anything else. In reading some of my more recent blog entries today, Hucka D., was particularly struck by the relevance of the idea of a self-feeding triangle represented by the Science Meander, Art Line, and Religion Pit. This Religion Pit is Otaki Gorge and Pietmond itself, true?

Hucka D.:

Yes. I am the 4th? Where is the 4th? He[/she] is me.

bb:

We have to start with that labyrinth to figure this all out. The labyrinth answers the question: where is the 4th?

Hucka D.:

I just answered it. Remember?

bb:

Are you, then, July 4th, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Think. Before asking. Please.

bb:

Amereca, then. It’s more than a day. Science Meander and Art Line combine in Religion Pit to form Amereca itself.

Hucka D. (correcting):

Herself.

bb:

Thanks. But…

Hucka D. (interrupting):

Look to Arkansas. (pause) Not that other state. The Show Me one. Grassy is wrong. Dead wrong. Grassy isn’t here to defend himself on this question, but take my word[ for it].

bb:

Is 3rd Life to be found there? I know you’ll say yes to that.

Hucka D.:

Yes. 3Ms. I am the 4th. Bee. From Greenhead. Whitehead Crossing. Told the others about the human avatars, like Gene Fade Dirk Stew [“T-Bonz”].

bb:

Thanks again. This was at the first meeting on Meeting Rock?

Hucka D.:

Not the first. I evoked the memory of the Quadrobeavs. [The number ]four, again. (pause) TILE… 4.

bb:

Did you, um, talk about the Religion Pit itself there?

Hucka D. (after another pause):

I told them about Ultima Thule and Arkansas.

bb:

How about this?

*****

bb:

Hucka D., an old Sunklands landlord joked to me once that the sinks around here were created by meteors. I wonder now if that’s actually so.

Hucka D.:

Big Island collided with Big Sink?

bb:

Er, not sure Hucka D. Is Big Island a meteor?

Hucka D.:

One big meteor crater and then 8 fragment craters around it.

bb:

So we somehow circle back to Big Ink.

Hucka D.:

Big Ink was the impact event. Like the Hiroshima bomb going off and more.

bb:

But in Ancient times.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Pre-Linden times for sure. Way far back.

bb:

The similar shape and size of Big Island[, Comet Archipelago,] and Big Sink interests me.

Hucka D.:

It interested a lot of people. Me, Peter, The Bakers. Lots.

bb:

Why was it called Big Ink?

Hucka D.:

The event blotted out.

bb:

How long ago, then?

Hucka D.:

Pre-everything. Almost. There were the Quadrobeavs.

bb:

Quadrobeavs were in Second Life, Hucka D.? Doubtful, if you don’t mind me saying.

Hucka D.:

*Pre-* Second Life. Way pre-. But: yes.

bb:

TILE, then.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

Four in one. Foreign One. The meteor itself? Big Island?

Hucka D.:

You travel from one, Big Island, to the other, Big Sink. It was like stepping off a speeding train. It involved time. Timescape. Slowing down. Tachyon.

bb:

And, come to think of it, meteor connects with comet.

http://www.wisegeek.com/what-is-the-difference-between-a-comet-and-a-meteor.htm

Hucka D.:

Not really. But: yes.

 

End of age November 15, 2010

Filed under: Big Sink,Uncategorized — baker Blinker @ 7:49 am

“Perhaps some final shots of the original Confederation of Sinkers hq, Hucka D. I think that land will sell fairly quick.”

Hucka D.:

Golden Guy. Past time paradise. Difficult, nay impossible to re-create. End of age. Golden.

bb:

But now we can resume our discussions about the Pietmond series.

Hucka D.:

Very important that is. And *I* am the true Golden Boy.

bb:

I don’t doubt it!

*****

Hucka D.:

You will have another chance with Big Sink. Pietmond will be a center for a while. All winter. Return to Nascera. Keep exploring!

 

Exploring some sinks… October 30, 2010

Filed under: Big Sink,Lill Burn Valley,Otaki Gorge,Pietmond — baker Blinker @ 7:28 am

Baker Blinker dancing with some new Halloween friends at the Crow’s Foot. Quite a lot of fun, but perhaps she’s had a bit too much to drink (?)

Later that night, a sober Baker Bloch just starts running around the Otaki Gorge property aimlessly and soon ends up on nearby Route 10, heading to the heart of Big Sink and perhaps beyond. Old and familiar territory by now.

Q’s Glass ‘n’ Gas in Brouwer. Always nice to view and visit, and a bit of stability in an otherwise mostly changing landscape in Big Sink.

New diner near my old property in Pudding Hole Hill. I hope that’s a hot dog on top, and I also hope he’s sticking out his tongue for some reason and not the other thing that comes to mind. Won’t go there. But still unsure, if so, why the tongue is out (?)

Attempt to ride an abandoned ice cream truck along Route 10 in Wetas failed miserably for Baker Bloch. I think it was just a *bit* broke, since it kept trying to burrow underground and also never actually got on the road itself for any length of time.

Perhaps mysterious lights nearby.

Baker looking back on Big Sink as he exits to the west… really not a lot there any more.

But a welcome sight: in neighboring Lill Burn Valley it appears that a portion of the Felix Meritis monastery is being restored. I’ll definitely have to check back every now and then on progress made. Really cheap land for sale around part of the lip of that particular sink, but, no, Baker can’t go there.

He’s very happy still in his quirky, little Pietmond, with its houses intruded upon by rocks…

… and tree infested rooftop dining offering great views. “I think I’ll eat at the downtown bar over there tomorrow night,” he thinks contentedly as we leave him to his musings.

Yeot.

Norum (cool, “illegal” skybox — won’t say exactly where). I really like Norum, and probably won’t move, despite strongly suggesting I will do so at times.

Big Sink. Looking west from near the center of Brouwer. Quite barren these days. Amazing how *all* the sinks have changed since I was there only 1/2 year ago, and not in a good way.
