Pietmond Decision, 01 January 4, 2012

Filed under: Carcassonne,Hucka D.,Mythopolis (rl city),Norris Spirit,Uncategorized — baker Blinker @ 8:07 am

Now I’m pretty sure I want to hang onto Pietmond in January, but let’s talk about it.

Hucka D.:

Let us.

bb:

Hi, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Hello. Hey.

Carcassonne:

I am the all. I am this blog, these words. I am alpha, omega, points between. I am, you are. You is. I are.

bb:

Hi as well to you tonight, Carcassonne.

NORRIS:

Hey, baker Beach.

bb:

Quite a crowd tonight. Do you have… er, never mind.

Hucka D. (guessing what baker b. was going to say):

Hurla Dontbee back there? No need to shy away from the name, baker b. We’re all cool with it.

bb:

That right NORRIS? Can I call you just Norris? Can you hear my capitalization somehow?

NORRIS:

Norris is fine. norris is fine. NORRIS is OK.

bb:

What is your relationship, Norris, with Carcassonne?

Hucka D.:

We wish to talk more about Bobb tonight.

bb:

Bobb, great. I’m picking up, um, that she’s a cousin of Norris?

NORRIS:

Bobb is a relative.

bb:

About the same length, Probably about the same overall drop in elevation from source to mouth.

NORRIS (speaking the name of the community at her mouth):

Stype.

bb:

I really like a number of places on the creek. It is in Mythos. Mythopolis. It was another “surprise” hiking find this year. Who knew a found creek would come from the thought-of dead Mythos and Mythopolis?

NORRIS:

Bamboo.

bb:

Yes, let me list out the advantages to [exploring/grokking] Bobb. Obviously you should not feel slighted because of this NORRIS, because you are *the* new, sacred creek of this blog and of my creativity.

NORRIS:

No slight. (pause) Bamboo.

bb:

That the mouth of Bobb is in a bamboo grove is an advantage to Bobb, yes. And of course the attraction and also disattraction to Mythopolis as a whole is the warmer clime, with a growing season 6 weeks longer. In March, say, if it snows a ton in Blue Mountain, I can still go down and hike around Bobb, knowing that it will in all likelihood be snow free. That extends my own hiking season. So in the summer this is reversed, and Bobb most likely closes up around the end of March. I’ll provide some pictures of the place very soon, hopefully. (pause) Does Bobb have a voice on this blog as well?

NORRIS:

Yes. If you wish.

bb:

The horseshoe bend on Bobb near its mouth seems to be a center. In the middle of the bamboo grove as well. Does that particular place have a name?

[No one answers immediately]

bb:

Is Bobb hard to reach [ie, communicate with] because of the density of Mythopolis?

Hucka D.:

Bobb is a place you can use just in case you need it. Handy.

bb:

Handyland.

Hucka D.:

Yes (!)

Interesting. A [Second Life avatar named] Handyland Fairymeadow quickly came up with a google image search, Hucka D.

The symmetrical sim to the one where he spoke about technological mashups in Second Life is called OneClimate Island, with a “50” on it. We spoke about the # 50 last night. And we were just speaking about the different climates of NORRIS and Bobb.

NORRIS:

Bobb and I are one climate.

bb:

Looking closer at the Second Life map, it’s really 350, but 50 stands out I feel. The “0” of 50 reminds me of Esbum Michigan’s Missing Piece [same shape].

—–

Here’s the story: Esbum Michigan didn’t die but piloted her Missing Piece, her sacred ship, to OneClimate and adjacent lands. The Missing Piece represents the number 50, like Sirius B.

Hucka D.:

Wrong. She rode a Bee to Handyland.

bb:

I’ve found Esbum Michigan. In Mythos!

“Don’t think the name will stick, but Dongoba seems to be what I was looking for, Hucka D.”

Hucka D.:

Along with Tinsity, yes. Fulfillment. Wheeler to Wilson situation deal-i-o, as you put it.

bb:

Michael Too is really gone?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Wheeler to Wilson, now.

bb:

I don’t believe I’m into the Richard Mitchell material. I’m not a grammar policeman.

Hucka D.:

No. No need to be within certain latitudes.

bb:

Obviously you’re going to help me with this Wheeler to Wilson situation.

Hucka D.:

Yes! Stream.

bb:

The rock temples all seem to be connected to that stream, particularly the very head of the stream. Again, not sure it will be called Dongoba…

Hucka D.:

No. Rock Vile. Vile is there is all.

bb:

Vile being “Wheeler” in this case.

Hucka D.:

Yes. You can turn that into Love. Tinsity. Wallace3. Beyond Michael Too. You know the secret now.

bb:

Without Tinsity I’d have trouble with this.

Hucka D.:

You couldn’t be a proper Wilson to his Wheeler.

bb:

Does *he* understand this?

Hucka D.:

In a way. We’ll help as well[ with him].

bb:

It will help me, it will help him.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Both ways working. Wheeler and Wilson and Wilson and Wheeler one in all and all in one.

bb:

Wheeler is Too.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

Wilson is 3, then.

Hucka D.:

Yes. What are you going to do? How to make the link to create a Wilson-Wheeler situation. Tinsity is obviously involved. How, I mean, meow. No, how?

bb:

Well, the theory right now is that the stream spoke to Michael Too.

Hucka D.:

Why don’t you just call him Wheeler. The Wheeler.

bb:

That his last name?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Wheeler. Go ahead…

bb:

So — *Wheeler* knew the stream was important and that it spoke to him. He built the temples in honor of this made connection.

Hucka D.:

A connection you must further now, Wilson.

bb:

I will fail. No, I will succeed. (pause) Hucka D.?

Dongoba:

Wheeler. Where?

bb:

Dunno, Dongoba. Hi to you. Greetings. Welcome to the Baker Blinker Blog.

Dongoba:

Thank. You. Where is Wheeler?

bb:

I don’t know, Dongoba.

Dongoba:

Where is Wilson?

bb:

I believe I am Wilson if Michael Too is Wheeler, Dongoba.

Dongoba:

Don. Go. Ba. What does that mean?

bb:

It’s a silly play on words. I don’t think it will stick, as I was telling Hucka D. Do you know Hucka D.?

Dongoba:

Play?

bb:

It has to do with an REM song.. a song, a musical song by an American group known as the REMs, also known, silly me, as REM.

Hucka D.:

You better tell him which one.

bb:

It’s “Rockville” or “Don’t Go Back to Rockville.” Let me check… (pause). Yeah, strangely perhaps it’s either one.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%28Don%27t_Go_Back_To%29_Rockville

Dongoba:

I am a Rock Ville. I have a Rock Ville. At the head. At the mouth: Something different. In-between: Something different again.

bb:

Yes, I know about the Rock Ville. Dongoba is a play on words… never mind. That’s not your real name anyway, is it?

Dongoba?: Dongoba?

bb:

Yes.

Dongoba?: No. (pause)

bb:

Yes?

Dongoba Not:

No. (pause again)

bb:

Can you tell it to me tonight? Hucka D. and me?

Dongoba Not:

It’s not Dongoba Not.

bb:

Oh.

Dongoba Not Not:

Or that.

bb:

Can you tell us, then?

Dongoba Not Not Not:

I can say it is Vile and not Love.

Hucka D. (still listening in):

Not yet, anyhow.

DNNN:

Too much damage. Had to go away.

bb:

Wheeler, you mean.

DNNN:

Yes, we will call him Wheeler. I see that. You are Wheeler2.

bb:

I am Wilson using Hucka-speak.

DNNN:

You are a jokester, a trickster. That might be good for Vile.

bb:

I think it can. But I have to watch out for the silliness getting out of hand, out of control. That’s *my* weakness.

DNNN:

Unfocused. But Wallace3 is helping.

bb:

You know of Wallace3?

DNNN:

I am picking it up in your mind. Truthfully I am not sure what it means. This Tinsity, this Wallace3. Something beyond Wheeler as well?

bb:

Not…

DNNN:

And these 2 bodies of water, Wheeler and Wilson. At Wilson is Brick… Ford City. Maybe with a “u” in it and not like the car maker [or: Fourd].

bb:

A way to put it, [DNNN,] is that Wilson Dam is a dam made of yellow bricks. Tons of bricks. Magical bricks. It’s a, um, memory pool.

Hucka D.:

We better start wrapping this up. You better get a name, baker b.

bb:

So do you have a name for us tonight?

Dongoba:

Dongoba is fine as I am thinking the matter further. I will try not to be a Grammar Policeman. Police of Man. Strange mind you have.

bb:

It’s the synchs. Map synchs, and others. Makes me seem to think sideways at times.

Dongoba:

You must think sideways at times more.

bb:

I’m trying.

Dongoba:

I will help. Put a microphone at my head and see if you can hear me that way as well.

bb:

Are you TILE Creek? Can you see that in *my* head?

Dongoba:

I see a table and a man’s head sticking through it. I get the impression he is a Red Squirt of 7. No, 2. 7 or 2.

bb:

That’s pretty good.

Hucka D.:

Wrap.

Dongoba:

I wish to talk more. It is a connection made that has not been made before. I see Wheeler before and Wilson after. I see me between the two. Yes, I am NORRIS.

Hucka D.:

Goodnight NORRIS, we will speak soon.

NORRIS:

Thank you.

“UnLocke” March 6, 2010

Filed under: Mythopolis (rl city),Wiltshire (RL UK County) — baker Blinker @ 8:15 am

“Real Life Sharon turned out to be a bust, Hucka D. No hiking options there that I could find. Sad, but of course I should most likely focus on Blue Mountain (for hiking) now.”

Hucka D.:

You know that a return to the Sharon you once knew is not possible. Later on, yes, with time machines and all. But now — blocked. Mythopolis was a good place to grow up but then move on from. Your father I don’t think understood your need to do that.

bb:

Really?

Hucka D.:

No, he loved Mythopolis kind of like you love Blue Mountain. He thought it the be all end all. (pause) His was more a people thing[, though].

bb:

I haven’t decided what network I should be a part of — at all. Really starting to see the limits of Second Life art scene. I love Second Life still, naturally, and probably will keep hanging out there…

Hucka D.:

… Sunklands is still a factor and a force. Keep creating Sunklands Today. And of course that’s where St. Nick of Barkley lived when he moved from Wazob and the Sharon you just skirted around today in your car. That road (Ridgecreek Drive) cut it cleanly in half, de-energizing it a number of years ago now. Your Ladyslipper shack is also gone, visible from this very road. When this cut occur, Sharon in essence wilted and died. That’s when St. Nick of Barkley decided to save whatever Sharon represented by moving the essential energy to Second Life — Your Second Lyfe. Sunklands is the result.

bb:

Should I keep reading the old Mythos notebooks, Hucka D.?

Hucka D. (after a pause):

Yes.

bb:

So… this new collage, maybe the *true* last in this little Slipper Men series, is about the death of Sharon the Mythos country.

Hucka D.:

Yes, it’s a monument to such, a headstone. Sharon (head)Stone.

bb:

A memorial, especially, to the Ladyslipper community of Sharon, whose symbolic shack has now been apparently destroyed.

Hucka D.:

Destroyed, yes. (pause) Good that you went there today to find all this out.

bb:

And of course the collage also represents MessiaenSphere, and the two male co-stars looking on either side of the gap that represents Sharon Stone — the missing star of the movie in this collage. The center… center stage.

Hucka D.:

Ridgecreek Road of Mytholopolis, your Morganton, overlaps the River Key of England, a short tributary of the Thames. A River Runs Through It.

bb:

I also think this door represents an opening, a specific one and connected with Stone.

Hucka D.:

Yes (smiles). She didn’t like that association and wouldn’t like it here.

bb:

The two disembodied statue leg parts probably represent Poplin and Gore Creeks surrounding the old Ladyslipper location, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Fractured, just like Sharon itself… a part of Sharon… part of the same body (Constantine I statue).

bb:

The joined numbers 8 and 9 appear again in this collage also, like they did in “Salthole”. On the water height measuring stick to the right now.

Hucka D.:

The Stone is death. 60 minutes, a complete circle. LMNO, with the missing, last “P” in the pod.

 

What say you, Hucka D.? March 2, 2010

Filed under: Jeogeot Continent,Mythopolis (rl city),Norum,Sunklands — baker Blinker @ 6:53 am

“I’m even thinking about going to Sharon, somehow, to get away from all the snow.”

Hucka D.:

Step in the shoes of Ol’ Saint Nick, eh? Wish list for the kiddies. Toys. Avatars. Nice you read Notebook I and also the bulk of Notebook II. Should they be published sometime?

bb:

Don’t know. Maybe as just reference. I should probably keep reading… Notebook III, Bruno, maybe even Dump again… Black and White Notebooks.

Hucka D.:

Good to prepare for Sharon… will give you an off-the-mountain project. What is the connection between Sharon and Frank/Herman Parks? Toy avatars obviously… glop man and glop people. Creepy Crawlers. Childhood memories.

bb:

I’m actually looking quite forward to it, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Not this weekend but next weekend. “In Search of Ancient Sharon”.

bb:

Right. I remember the country’s name having something to do with Sharon Tate, the actress murdered by the Manson clan in the 60s. Did St. Nick of Barkley live in Ladyslipper?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Between the 2 great creeks (Poplin and Gore, named for childhood friends as were a lot of Wazob locations).

bb:

Of course we have the established link between Jeogeot and Wazob now, and, focusing in, Sunklands and Sharon through St. Nick of Barkley.

Hucka D.:

Why did the Freakies, or the equivalent thereof, establish their center just outside of Sunklands to the west, on your “Mt. Jeogeot”? Why did they become trees themselves? What is the relationship of BossMoss to Moss Man and Moss People? And Karoz for that matter?… the mountain lies between Sunklands and his old circle of influence centered in Noru. You should return to Noru more… Greater Chilbo.

bb:

I went the other night.

Hucka D.:

Maybe even rent there. Establish a presence there again.

bb:

The ESG (Edwardston Station Gallery), though, stays in Sunklands. In the center.

Hucka D.:

Of course! I was thinking more of TILE.

bb:

There is a gap or opening, caused by rift of present (Aotearoa) colliding with past (Noru).

Hucka D.:

The Moss People occupied the Highlands (Mt. Jeogeot and environs). They could move either east toward Sunklands or west toward Noru. They chose the latter. Karoz’s old house… you should think about renting there again now. Parcels in Sunklands and parcels in Noru both. Chilbo is close. Korean Channel. This is in the past but also the future. Doorway. Gap… rift. Back to the future.

bb:

Maybe this “gap” represents the end of my Jeogeot adventures. Like “Down The Rabbit Hole”.

Hucka D.:

Let’s say you took a vacation to Ladyslipper (inside) Sharon of Mythopolis in this month, after Day of Destruction VI. Good luck by the way!

bb:

Thanks.

Hucka D.:

You do this to get away from all the snow. Then in late March you return to Blue Mtn. to continue hiking season. But you get away for 1 weekend. You see some trees and flowers bloom. Old times revisited. Childhood. Biking.

bb:

Jeogeot seems to have many navels, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

You must think about the Rabbit Hole once connecting Jeogeot and Maebaleia. Still exists.

bb:

TILE was born on Mt. Jeogoeot??

Hucka D.:

*Yes.* TILE.

bb:

Something about the Korean Channel. Maybe about the Shamon province, which is like Sharon a bit. Actually, I think I might have called Sharon Shannon a couple of times in this blog. Haveta check asap.

Hucka D.:

TILE was born on Mt. Jeogeot. You can climb into the tree and come down in a different world. It’s a Freaky Tree.

bb:

Yes, it certainly is. Obviously if what you’re saying is true, then the scrabble overlap with the Korean Channel is implied. I’m going to take a look at Kou’s Jeogeot map again, Hucka D. Hold on…

*****

bb:

Well, I’m just going to have to research that rise more, Hucka D. Bippie Camel… any words on him.

Hucka D.:

A carrier, as I’ve indicated. Adam and Eve, AA and AB. The Camels… The Bakers. Obvious link.

(pause) bb:

I’m pretty sure what you’re calling The Highlands is the home of the Moss People of Jeogeot, Hucka. Bossmoss plus Mossman.

Hucka D.:

Moss was one of the monsters, yes. Munster. Freakies.

*****

bb:

Hmmmm… check this out, Hucka D. Just found a flickr set from someone who lives or lived in Hugh’s Rise. That’s right next to Mt. Jeogeot, or part of it (!) Maybe the mountain itself should be called Hugh’s Rise; hafta think about that more. I’m leaning toward Mt. Jeogeot. “Hucka D.?” Anyway… Hugh’s Rise is also mentioned in comments to this blog entry. Maybe is should also go to this Marawa sim where the owner of the blog, Chestnut Rau, bought land in April 2009. More to chew on.

*****

Sharon, near Mythopolis

*****

*Although named partially for Sharon Tate superficially, Sharon may also refer to Sharon Stone, who was from Meadville, PA and was married at one time to Michael Greenburg. This is interesting, because Stone is a star in Sphere, used in MessiaenSphere. Is MessiaenSphere a symbol of the Sharon province by association? Sphere equals cubes of Glop People? Like in Sphere, the chromagraphic cubes of the Glop People are the first obviously alien creations found by the people of Wazob. The discovery changed the creative landscape of Wazob radically, divided into 3 areas: science, psychology, and arts (the Einstein, Jung, Schoenberg triad). Shock.

Greenburg began his affiliation with Richard Dean Anderson by producing the hit series MacGyver for five of its seven seasons on ABC. Greenburg and Anderson created Gekko Film Corp together. Greenburg has been executive producer of many projects starring Anderson, including Legend, two MacGyver television films for ABC (Trail to Doomsday and The Lost Treasure of Atlantis), and Stargate SG-1. Greenburg had a cameo appearance Stargate SG-1’s 100th episode Wormhole X-Treme!“.

 

Measuring things again… January 27, 2010

Filed under: Hucka D.,Jeogeot Continent,Mythopolis (rl city),Sapphire — baker Blinker @ 7:29 am

“I didn’t mind my p’s and q’s enough when counting the number of Jeogeot continent sims. It’s actually 776. 1 from 777. But at least my total for Maebaleia (678) was correct. (pause) Hucka D.?”

Sapphire:

Good that you started exploring Yd Island again and found the house/gallery. I am Sapphire. I was born in the Micro-Hole you probed tonight as well. The Micro-Hole was formed to counter the intense gravity of the Macro-Hole, or what most people knew as just The Hole. The Micro-Hole was a sort of hidden project, although not overtly. You must think about Yd Island and TILE now, baker b. Baker Beach. And the Mmmmmm’s again.

Hucka D.:

Yes, Sapphire is right, baker b. Pudding Hill is a center now, but you must keep Yd Island in the mix. And now you have yet another new structure to deal with. The mythology of Yd Island can even be sharpened now that you are in the heart of Sunklands for real. You must give up Aotearoa. Sorry. Ideally, you would keep everything… (pause)

*****

They may be gone.

Hucka D.:

We’re over here.

Sapphire:

Yd. Island will be needed more in the spring and fall, countered by the winter-summer axis of Sunklands. No… (pause)

*****

“Glop people, Hucka D. What were they in Second Life?”

Hucka D.:

They were never here. They were in your Sharon.

bb:

One of my problems is how to convey through writing the emotions of exploring that region while living in Mythopolis. Sharon was an independent country from Wazob at one time, like Texas from the US before the Mexican War.

*****

bb:

Let’s get this done with tonight as well, Hucka D., and Sapphire. The comparison of ancient Wazob with more modern Jeogeot. Then maybe we can determine some bleedthroughs…

Hucka D.:

There is no parallel to Bridee, your mother’s house, unless you want to count the new finds in Eunhaeng, as you probably should.

bb:

If so, then, it’s split in two in Jeogeot, a night side and a day side. But the same structure.

Hucka D.:

If so, again, then the dry waterfall on the Emerald Center properties with the obvious parallel to the Sampson’s Stones must also be factored in. That’s the province of Emerald, which is, or was, just beyond the central Q province — Zircon, wasn’t it?

bb:

Yes. And this seems to apply, or backed up, by the fact that (Chip) Sampson was a star forward for the Emerald basketball team, its greatest star, perhaps, before (John) Raphael showed up in about 1970.* So, yeah, I think this would *have* to represent the Emerald province of Wazob. Or, I mean, there’s a direct resonance going on between it and Second Life — and the Lake District of England as well. The house: books that can’t be read on one side, night side, and books that can on the day side.

*****

bb:

Jeogeot is about 6 miles wide and 7 miles high, Hucka D. Let’s see, Wazob is maybe 4 miles high and 4 miles wide or so. Not an exact match, but not incomparable. But one of the things I see is the relation of Sunklands to the traditional Sharon country, or what later became the Chrysoberyl province. Now Nick Barkley was a star forward for both the Chrysoberl college basketball team and then the Chrysoberyl pro basketball team. Nick Barkley is a charater in Big Valley (a tv show), which reminds me of that old poem…

Big valley, huge valley
Side for you, side for me

Hucka D.:

That’s your poem. I like “Lucky Penguins Stupid Penguins” better.

bb:

Thanks for that. But it sounds like Big Sink, though. Maybe St. Nick is the patron saint of Sunklands, not St. Lemon. St. Nick is of course Santa Claus to us. Bringing us toys when we were small.

Hucka D.:

Smaller.

bb:

Right (smiles). So, Hucka D. are there any other comparisons to make here?

Hucka D.:

You seem to have covered the major ones. No real parallel to Chilbo, for instance.

bb:

Oh, I guess the Korean Channel would have to be a substitute for Silver Creek, the spine of Wazob. (pause) Before I forget, Hucka D., I think the Corsica continent may have been purposely planned as a type of Russian/Siberia thing, forming slowly west to east across a large breadth. It’s the longest SL continent.

Hucka D.:

But instead of Russia you get Pennsylvania — unplanned.

bb:

Yeah, to emphasize the Egg Hill sink as a center, and some other stuff. Getting back to the Wazob-Jeogeot link, Sunklands must parallel Sharon.

Hucka D.:

Think of your mother’s house, Bridee, and the 2 structures that are so different in Eunheung but yet the same. Underneath is an old map of Second Life, almost from its beginning. Not chance it’s there. Like your old maps of Mythos, or Wazob. *Beanstalk* — food for thought. We better end.

bb:

Thank you.

*****

* Chip Sampson and John Raphael played for a number of years (1970 – 1975) on the Emerald pro basketball team and were considered one of the best, if not the best forward tandem in the league they played (Wazobian Basketball Association, or WBA). They won two championships while playing together. Now all this is imaginary, but a number of years later while attending college (about 1980 or 1981) I met two actual people who were named *Chip and Raphael* I often saw hanging around together. Both were campers who lived in tents at the time. And to add to the oddity, another friend knew this same duo by two totally different names: *John* and Fred respectively.

 

Thoughts on Booker’s SID’s 1st Oz interview just read… August 28, 2008

Filed under: Mythopolis (rl city),Uncategorized — baker Blinker @ 7:09 am
Tags:

Confusing.

Openings within the text that need to be further resolved/explored. Like the transition from Tyler County, West Virginia and The Jug to Polk County, Arkansas and Rich Mountain. I know this is 10 (Tyler as 10th president) to 11 (Polk as 11th president), and that Tyler stands for “one who tyles” (Master Tyler?).

Hucka D.:

We must go very soon.

bb:

Oh hellow Hucka D. When should we go? Over the weekend?

Hucka D.:

Yes. Make a map. Plan a course. We set sail soon.

bb:

Hucka D., you’ve read Booker’s interview about SID’s 1st Oz, right?

Hucka D.:

That is right.

bb:

What did you think of it?

Hucka D.:

We are about to begin again. Waters-to-Pine Ridge. Huddleston. Rubie, Silver. 36-Square and 36-Triangle. Temple.

bb:

…of TILE?

Hucka D.:

At the center of the temple is a cube, you know now. Hidden. Silver. Represents perhaps the Silver Forest and the extent thereof. 36-Square. 1 township. 1,2,3… 36. Superimposition.

bb:

It doesn’t matter if the gallery gets much business.

Hucka D.:

No.

bb:

So the Silver Forest was the same area as a township? That’s 36 square miles.

Hucka D.:

No.

Temple of TILE sits next to but not in the Ruby Forest, but would have sat in the Silver Forest.

Hucka D.:

Right. (pause) Relationship is an octave.

bb:

Ahhh… like Traynham River [in Ruby province] to Silver River. And same way Silver River is to Gold River… Copper to Silver to Gold.

(Hucka D. does not respond.)

bb:

Can you tell us about the original temple Hucka D.? Did it sit on the exact same space as the new temple, what you’ve called a “poor man’s replica”?

Hucka D.:

Basically yes. 150 meters up. Almost 150 meters east of the west line of the sim.

bb:

Was it a cube as well?

Hucka D.:

Kind of. Look around the neighborhood. Absorb.

bb:

Don’t tell me it was a Borg Collective.

Hucka D.:

No (pause).

The map with Rubie and Silver is to give you perspective, in part, about the size of the Ruby Forest and even the Silver Forest. They are still small in RL terms, like those “National Forrest Preserves” shown on the silver map. That’s one aspect. The other is the 36-Square. That’s Tyle, but also Numbers. Realms of. It’s the whole shebang.

bb:

Hucka D., obviously we can associate Jethro Tull and their A Passion Play with the very center of the temple, the inner core with its spinning cube of TYLE plus the 2 numbers “1” and “0”. That’s the Realm of Letters and Realm of Numbers united again in a rough 2:1 relationship, as simplified from a 26:10 ratio. The bottom part, the ground part with the 11 encircling objects [including the teleporter] manifests the cube atop the lemon tree. That’s a portal… from RL to SL and perhaps also visa versa.

Hucka D.:

The portal has manifested something, then.

bb:

Yeah… I suppose it did. 36-Square. Macrocosm into microcosm. The whole temple condensed into this spinning cube which was not 1 prim but 2 prims, as Baker Blinker just discovered. Then the glyphs on the cube were more or less solved: it’s a map of a township in Montgomery County, Arkansas.

Hucka D.:

There are more townships.

bb:

Hmmmm…

(to be continued?)

*****
…mmmmm… another interesting and informative talk with the bee-man. Rubie, Arkansas is the closest population place to the main sim I live in now. And just to the south of it lies Silver, which stands for Silver River, originally Silver Creek, that Traynham River [originally, in turn, Traynham Creek] empties into and forms and octave relationship. And Traynham River lies in Ruby which contains the mouth and thus the key to the octave relationship. Trayhamboro. But nearby is Edwardston… but Hucka D. told me not to write about that in the blog because it produces yawns and perhaps even snores. I wonder if Hucka D. and Grassy are still our ambassadors to Wazob?

[The spinal cord of Wazob is the Silver River.]
[Wazob is composed of 18 [?] individual provinces, one of which is Ruby. To the immediate west is Emerald with Edwardston.]
[Both Ruby and Emerald, in toto, represent the lower octave of Wazob as a whole.]
[Wazob continues and octafies the green energy of Emerald, formerly the country of Vert.]
[The Silver River running through the entirety of Wazob, its spinal cord, octafies the Traynham River that Ruby Province has a similar relationship with as Wazob does with Silver.]
[The last country to join Wazob, to seal the pact, was Azure. Azure Islands has just been left and de-energized for me personally. No temple there.]
[conclusion: the creation of the Edwardston Station Gallery in Ruby is the same as the creation of Wazob.]

“Hucka D., I’m wondering if the temple is the same as the state of Arkansas? Tyle/TILE?”

Hucka D.:

Go to the temple.

 

Chatting… August 26, 2008

“Hucmka D., I thought we could chat a little bit before I head back to bed.”

Hucka D.:

Ok.

bb:

Purchase of new land a good idea?

Hucka D.:

Great idea. Good investment at the very least. You’ll have fun with it. Maps.

bb:

Will I work on maps there?

Hucka D.:

Yes sir.

bb;

Where’s Grassy tonight?

Hucka D.:

Where do you think?

bb:

Tastee Freeze? Ha ha.

Hucka D.:

Right, giggle, snicker. (smiles, pause). Ok, baker b., are we ready for The Jug?

bb:

Sure Hucka D. When do we head off?

Hucka D.:

The Jug is the “t” around which all is built. It is the point extended and spread out into a line. Hidden information and knowledge. Missing piece. It can vanish.

bb:

More cryptic stuff tonight, eh? Well, Esbum’s missing piece certainly vanished along with the whole Alex… um, Edwardston sim. That was a tragedy for her; I don’t know if she’ll ever get over it.

Hucka D.:

Baker Blinker has been left behind. But she can also exist at the new house, because it is so isolated. She won’t be harassed there. She greatly thanks you for this continuation of her existence in the virtual realm. She is cursed, true… we’re working on it.

bb:

What exactly is at The Jug? I know Booker transitioned from Tyler County ([10] to Polk County [11] through it, seemingly. This obviously seems related to the shift of M or N from the Realm of Letters to the Realm of Numbers, decreasing the former from 26 to 25 and increasing the latter from 10 to 11.

Hucka D.:

The two are probably the same, yes.

bb:

Booker became a little confused, though.

Hucka D.:

Yes. That’s what we need to clear up as much as possible. Clear will help.

bb:

The Missing Piece is hidden in another dimension now. (pause). We exist only in the Realm of Letters?

(Hucka D. does not answer)

bb:

TILE? Hucka D., are you there?

Grassy:

He’s gone, man! Down to the Tastee Freeze. Out on the highway. (starts singing): “Oh give me a home where the buffalo roam…”

bb:

Great. Ok, I’ll flow with it. Grassy, let’s talk about Alabama more, then.

Grassy:

Alma-bama. Ala-bam-a. Geez. (hiccups). Gypsy. Curses. Blue feather. Gypsy. Gypsy, baker. Remember?

bb:

No.

Grassy:

Something disappeared. A woman in trouble.

bb:

Through a door?

Grassy:

Ok, yeah. Alright. Ok.

bb:

Grassy, are you still going to the Mossmen’s homeland?

Grassy:

I’m gonna go much further. Come ‘er, come ‘er (waves baker closer). Get down here to my little candy mouth. I wanna tell you a secret (baker moves closer; he can smell the liquor strongly now, but mixed with a strange smell of, what was that… liquorise! liquor and liquorise; queer. Then Grassy says:) I’m gonna steal the damn thing (and then snickers again loudly).

bb:

Steal what? The… oh no, Grassy, are you still thinking about going all the way to Edwardston? (which makes Grassy laugh louder and roll around on the ground, holding his round sides).

Grassy, I don’t think that’s a wise idea.

Grassy:

“Home, home on the range…” (laughs; then:). I talked the Mossman, Faded Genes, into helping me. We’re going to steal it in the middle of the (hiccups) night. Tomorrow. Lemons. Lemon tree. Portal (hiccups). I convinced him that… that…

bb:

That what Grassy?

Grassy:

It was his people’s in the first place.

bb:

The 1st goodmobile belongs to the Mossmen?

Grassy:

Edwardston is Hades. Hell, baker b. That’s where we’re heading. Hell. Home is Hell. Horrible secret, eh?

bb:

Grassy, Hucka D. and I think that Hades actually stands not for the firey hell of our Bible but the sub-planet Pluto. Your species is from Pluto.

Grassy:

Well, then, Edwardston is Pluto. That’s what *we* figured out baker b. Hey, I gotta lean over on something now. Hold your finger out please (baker obliges and Grassy leans over on his finger).

bb:

I wonder if you could go get Hucka… oh, never mind. So Grassy, where are you going to crash tonight? (just then, Grassy falls away from baker’s finger and hits the “ground”. Soon the snoring begins).

bb (talking to himself now):

Well, that was interesting, but I don’t think Grassy and that Mossman Gene Fade should steal the 1st goodmobile and go to Edwardston. Interesting that Grassy is obsessed with it, and that he could talk Fade into going with him. Mossmen created the 1st goodmobile, eh? I’ll have to think about that more.

(to be continued?)

 

Loose Thoughts… August 18, 2008

Filed under: Grassy Noll,Hucka D.,Mythopolis (rl city),Toy Avatars — baker Blinker @ 7:08 am
Tags:

Tried to read “Notebook I” myself (from 1981, a long time ago!), and it was hard going after the first 2 chapters. Although I was a little insulted at the time now I know why Hucka D. asked if I was about 12 when I wrote it! Haven’t decided if I want to try to tackle Notebooks II, III, and IV (Bruno) yet in this review… all of the “Mythos Notebooks” in other words. Difficult now to understand what I was thinking or what I was going through at the time. But I believe there is something to “guard” at any rate.

Hucka D. and Grassy have called off their intended flight to Mythos, specifically Edwardston. Well I should say it was probably called off for them. The elders of the Mmmmmm’s decided that the likelihood of avatars living in Mythos is low. Besides, they explained to Grassy Noll, the 1st goodmobile is a national treasure, and not one to really be used as a movie prop, no matter if the most famous actor in the history of Mmmmmm cinema is doing the asking — who, by the way, is another national treasure and shouldn’t be putting his life at stake on such a dangerous seeming voyage and with a vehicle that hasn’t been up and running in eons. So the more the elders thought about it the more they saw that there was no way they’d let Grassy take the 1st goodmobile and fly to Mythos.

After Grassy calmed down, he saw their reasoning. He studied their decree. He saw the clarity of their hypothesis that stated the first actual avatars in the real world were toys such as the Mmmmmm’s and the Mossmen. Toy avataring was at least symbolically born in New Hope, beyond any resonance with distant Mythos for Blue Mountain. Section 8 of the writing 10×10 explains this in some detail.

There are two hiking mythologies that have developed for me, baker b., over the years. Mythopolis and Blue Mountain. Blue Mountain (the 2nd), however, went beyond Mythopolis (the 1st) — exteriorized beyond it — at New Hope, when we returned to Blue Mountain seemingly for good in 1995 (and we’re still there). Somehow the toy avatar story is tied to this exteriorization now. And this is the same information the Mmmmmm elders were tapping into when making their decision about Grassy’s proposed journey to Mythos. They have then declared Mythos a “dead” world and unfit to travel to because of the dangers involved. Grassy has come to accept it.

Let’s just bring in Grassy to talk about it some more. Grassy?

Grassy:

Right.

bb:

I was just talking about the elders canceling your journey. But they’ve given you an alternative, haven’t they?

Grassy:

Yeah, it’s travel to the Mossmen’s original home up way beyond Herman Park and even Frank Park. I suppose it will be fun.

bb:

It’s a lot closer than Mythos, though.

Grassy:

Yup. Hucka D. hasn’t decided if he’s going with me or not. He has that option, though.

bb:

And you won’t be taking the 1st goodmobile.

Grassy:

Nah. A less souped up version will do for this journey. Inferior power but more modern and tested.

bb:

Has anyone else signed up to go with you?

Grassy:

Well, I haven’t seen the actor who plays T-Bonz in a while. Dirk Stew. Wanda Fish has expressed an interest. But Wanda is crazy. Nuts. An overzealous groupie thing, you know. She follows me around like a puppy. Have issued about 7 restraining orders along the way. So she’s not going.

bb:

Tell me more about the journey. Have you planned anything else out yet besides the mode of travel?

Grassy:

Oh I forgot to say that I’ll probably be taking Gene Fade with me, the actor who plays the Mossman in the TILE River movie. He’s very interested to see the original homeland for his people. And he knows all the legends and histories so that’ll be real handy.

bb (seeing Hucka D. enter):

Oh, here’s Hucka D. as well. Hello Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Hi.

bb:

So you’re traveling with Grassy on this new adventure?

Hucka D.:

I might. Listen, we need to talk about The Jug.

bb:

Alright.

Hucka D.:

It is a point that extends into a line. But all you can see is the point from the outside. It’s a string thing.

bb:

Ok.

Hucka D.:

You can hide stuff there. Like information. Storage. No one will know, though.

bb:

I don’t know where this is going…

Hucka D.:

Missing Piece.

Virtual Realities? August 17, 2008

Filed under: Grassy Noll,Hucka D.,Mythopolis (rl city),Toy Avatars,Uncategorized — baker Blinker @ 9:54 am
Tags:

“Grassy and I will be your ambassadors to Wazob baker b.”

bb:

I thought you weren’t interested in Mythos, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Well, I studied the matter a bit further. There’s enough in it to keep my interest long enough for ambassadoring. Interesting crossovers may be involved. Like the beanstalk to name an obvious one. SL has one, Mythos has one. And both in some of the oldest lands of the respective, ahem, grids.

bb:

You’re talking about Steller’s Beanstalk in SL, Hucka D. I’m assuming. But the beanstalk in Mythos played a larger role in that planet’s history.

Hucka D.:

Let me list out some comparisons — advantages and disadvantages — of each metaverse, for that’s what both are. Let’s just bring in Grassy to help supplement my talking.

Grassy (entering):

Yeah, just waiting in the hallway for my cue.

Hucka D.:

So I was telling baker b. that you and I have been studying the matter. We’ve both read “Notebook I” now baker b. We both agree that Mythos, or at least Wazob, and SL find a communication juncture now, through this property. So to the comparisons. Grassy… do you have the list?

Grassy (unfolding large piece of paper drawn out of his pocket):

Right here. So… should I start?

Hucka D.:

Go ahead. I’ve already mentioned the beanstalks but just read what we’ve written.

Grassy:

Ok (clears throat). So (looks over at Hucka D.), I’ll just start with the beanstalks then, I guess. Both have them, as Hucka D. said, and both in the oldest sections. But for Mythos, er, Wazob, it has added significance.

Hucka D.:

Yes, baker b., for this is where Thomas Eckardt enters the picture. We’ve also been studying up on the Booker T. material. I hope to meet Booker one day.

bb:

I’ll see what I can do.

Hucka D.:

That’s a third beanstalk then, actually. But go ahead Grassy. Didn’t mean to interrupt.

Grassy:

Tis ok. So, yeah, I suppose that’s a third beanstalk. Alright to say where this was, or should have been, or still is… in that location?

Hucka D. (answering for Grassy):

We know this was located in or near Cairo.

bb:

But not Egypt.

Hucka D.:

No. Missouri. Illinois, I mean. Cache River.

bb:

This beanstalk was used to connect Earth with Mars.

Hucka D.:

Mars being the same as Oz.

Grassy:

Says here in these notes that when the beanstalk was chopped down the connection was severed. Mars separated from Earth.

Hucka D.:

That was the death of Thomas Eckardt. The beanstalk was only chopped down at the moment of death. Or he chopped it down, in his fantasies, right before death. He knew it was coming. And he separated himself from the fantasy. But then Baum continued it, but without the grounding. Earth. It was all up in the air after that. Oz from Mars.

bb:

Hucka D., do you still believe that you are Rupert?

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

That means you are the successor to Baum, just as Eckardt is the predessesor.

Hucka D.:

That would be correct. I resurrected the Martian connection through the Wizard’s Cube, based upon the Magic Square of Mars. Oz… Mars. The Wizard Cube.

bb:

The beanstalk of Mythos, then, is merely a reflection of this truer beanstalk of Eckardt’s, correct?

Hucka D.:

Yeah. Suppose so.

bb:

Well, let’s get back to that. Grassy, what else is on your list?

Grassy:

Ok (clears throat again, scans document before reading). Got here that Mythos is a sphere and SL is not. Hucka D. checks “advantage Mythos”. (Grassy looks up here, and others nod for him to continue). Ok, then Mythos has much less water than SL, but no advantage either way. Then: Mythos based on Earth locations, SL not. Advantage Mythos again. Then: Mythos not open to settlement; only “natives”. Advantage: undetermined.

Hucka D.:

Let me add here that there is no land for sale in Mythos, and no real world interaction with the various landmasses or continents. It’s all native land. That’s an advantage in that the world hasn’t fallen. But it’s a disadvantage because there’s no interaction with real life except though the Earth location basis. So it’s also undetermined if one can actually separate this virtual reality, this supposed Grid, from this Earth location. And that’s where we must examine the Sirius connection, for in the Sirius system this would represent the planet [Jefferson], the 3rd of the primary Sirius system. The M/N planet [Madison], would be the fourth. This is another loose parallel to Earth and Mars… in fact, the M/N planet is reportedly Mars-like in size. There’s strong indication that Mythos represents this [Jefferson] and SL represents [Madison]. But if so, it would be an SL in the future, because [Madison] is a also a sphere-world, like Mythos/[Jefferson], and SL is not presently. But the main connection seems to be the Alma/Rupert/Noz trio of interacting avatars. This would be you baker b., in your masculine and feminine aspects — AlMaNoz in total — and then me tacked on as well [Rupert].

bb:

What does all this mean? (turns to Grassy): Sorry Grassy, we’ll get back to the list in a moment…

Hucka D.:

It means that Azure Islands has a loose parallel with the M Continent that Alma acted as queen of, perhaps. All three: Rupert, Alma, and Noz, originated on this continent, but only Alma stayed there more or less permanently. This story is repeating itself in SL now with our family. Baker Blinker, read: Alma, has been left behind on Azure, while Baker Bloch, read: Noz, has moved to the mainlands and has taken Ms. Blinker’s gallery with him. The gallery could not exist on Azure Islands. Then there is the TILE/Tyle polarity tied into this. Alma began the Tyle religion/philosophy/game as a reaction to the game/philosophy/religion of TILE, which was a mainland product on the M/N planet just like it is or will be in SL. This is tied to the Temple of TILE now on the mainlands here in Ruby. This centering of the TILE temple in its true position covers up the fact that at the very center we have not TILE but Tyle… the letters of which are engraven on the much smaller, exactly centered, spinning cube in the middle of the temple. TILE is an older partial-philosophy, though. It is pre-Sirian. It is from Lyra. Vega. it is older just like the mainlands are older than Azure Islands. AI’s formed as a reaction to the mainlands and Linden rule. They are a step closer to OpenSim, which will be or actually is offworld. Another Grid, or set of Grids. This was built into the whole system to begin with, though. Like the seed of Tyle is found at the very center of the Temple of TILE. A corruption seeded at the very beginning. An escape. A growth beyond the old into the new. For Alma, this is the establishment of a true Sirian government beyond older, more ingrained power of TILE. This is what you have now carried back to the mainlands. You have set up the Temple of TILE, but in the middle is Tyle. You could be moving backwards in time, then.

bb:

Hold on Grassy for just a moment (turning to Hucka D. again): Hucka D., you claim to be Rupert, or will be Rupert in the future, or have been him in the past.

Hucka D.:

Both.

bb:

Why is it so important to connect Oz with Mars, to reestablish this Eckardt vibration?

Hucka D.:

Because the Eckardt vibration must be reestablish. (pause)

Grassy:

(clearing throat again in the silence): Can I continue with my list now?

Hucka D.:

Yes, I think that’s a good idea. But I would like to expand upon the comment about the Mythos lands, or at least the Wazobian lands, not being open to outside settlement. Only “natives” exist there. But we do not even know that a virtual reality can exist without outside settlement. There would be no “users”. All would be permanent settlers or natives, true, but…

Grassy:

That’s what Hucka D. and I have to find out. A special goodmobile is being prepared for our journey. We set sail Tuesday from First Tree. We have special permission — yes — to use the original goodmobile that broght we Mmmmmm’s from Hades [which seems to mean the same as the planet Pluto to these people]. it was difficult to pull off, but, as a famous celebrity, I have some string-pulling ability. But it is the only vehicle that the Mmmmm’s ever owned that would be powerful enough to go all the way to Mythos, the Earth/grounding part. So that’s why we had to have it. And Hucka D. agrees with me here, don’t you Hucka?

Hucka D.:

Yes. We set sail Tuesday. We didn’t want to scare your mother, baker b., so we didn’t want to land in or around Bridee.. you old house [near the location of the Mythos beanstalk]. So we thought we’d choose Edwardston. We’re going to try to find the doorway between the Earth location and the projected Mythos city at that particular location. The picture of the Ancient nearby was encouraging enough for us to give it a try.

bb:

Well guys, why don’t I just slip you into my backpack and I’ll take you down to Mythos the next time I go.

Hucka D.:

No, that’s too easy. We have to use the Goodmobile.

Grassy:

Plus I’m going to film the whole thing! This is going to be my greatest adventure yet. Salad Bar Jack Through The Doorway To Mythos. Working title, mind you.

bb:

Ok, I can’t wait, actually. But how…? never mind, I’ll find out soon enough.

Grassy:

Actually, we gotta run. Gotta get our regular sleeping patterns down before the big trip.

bb:

Ok, I’ll let you and Hucka D. go. So we’ll save the rest of the list for later?

Grassy:

Right.

SID again… August 16, 2008

Tags:

“baker b., I’ve been reading your interview w/ Booker concerning SID’s 1st Oz. Is this all right to talk about in the blog?”

bb:

Talk about this all you want to…

Hucka D.:

Fork in the road. Alma is left behind, on the M continent. Tyle. TILE is the mainlands. You are Noz. Alma is Ms. Blinker. You have destroyed her home. Fork.

bb:

She really cannot exist on the mainland.

Hucka D.:

No. You should provide a home.

bb:

I can’t afford to live on Azure Islands and the mainland at the same time. It’s just not possible.

Hucka D.:

I am glad you went back and got a free beach towel at least (weak smile). But I feel sorry for Ms. Blinker.

bb:

She’ll be fine. She has to stick around since she’s got most of the inventory, the goodies.

Hucka D.:

She is sad.

bb:

There does seem to be a separation in effect.

Hucka D. (after a pause):

Noz must not loose the N. Or else he has to loose the N. You see, it’s already affecting me!

bb:

Are we going back in time or forward? If Azure is the Wazobian province that represents the last holdout of independent sub-countries of Wazob — a name which contains “Oz” by the way — then is this the equivalent to the original creation of Wazob in some way? Edwardston to Gill. to Calypso — 3 to 4 to 5. Octave. Vert to Emerald and Gules to Ruby. That’s what happened, isn’t it?

Hucka D.:

I’m not from that planet. I do not know.

bb:

Edwardston becomes the capital or at least the largest city of the Emerald Province. Traynhamboro is the largest city of the neighboring Ruby province. But the distance between them is the same as the Morg Island and thus Calypso, which plays the…

Hucka D. (yawning and interrupting):

…I thought we were going to talk about SID tonight.

bb (a little taken aback):

Ok Hucka. Should I not talk about that planet?

Hucka D.:

No. Booooorrring.

bb:

But that’s where the actual Edwardston lies.

Hucka D.:

Is it? I thought Edwardston was a sim.

bb:

The actual name of the sim is — was — Alexandria. But I called it Edwardston at the time because Alexandria is a port city on the other most important river in Wazob — outside the Silver again… (Hucka D. yawns more loudly here)… ok, ok, I won’t talk about that world.

Hucka D.:

You can talk about it but not here, not in this blog.

bb:

But what about the quote/unquote “spirit” of Edwardston I found under the trestle bridge just beside Edwardston in *this* world. RL.

Hucka D.:

Yeah, that’s important. That’s an Ancient.

bb:

Hucka D., should I just refer to the Edwardston sim as Alexandria, then?

Hucka D.:

I think it’s too late for that (smiles). Edwardston would be fine. It’s gone anyway. No one cares except us at this point. (pause)

bb:

Wazob is SID.

(Hucka D. does not answer)

(to be continued?)

*****

bb:

Wazob is SID Hucka D.

(Hucka D. still doesn’t answer)

bb:

Ok Hucka D., I’m going inworld now. Going to the temple, maybe. Stare at that cube.

(no Hucka D.)

*****

bb:

Hucka! I just remembered what I wanted to talk to you about. The Bends!

Grassy Noll:

I am here.

bb:

Oh hello Grassy. Are you speaking for Hucka D. now?

Grassy:

Yep. Been drinking. Between shoots. Got bored. Asked him if I could fill in.

bb:

That’s fine. Are you still in North Dakota?

Grassy:

I went over the edge of that damn dam, you know. Drunk as a skunk. Almost pulled T-Bonz over with me… got swallowed by a sentient turtle who saved me… then realized that this TILE Creek is just a tributary of the New, or where the New starts. Was able to trek all the way to the mouth after the spill. Quite a revelation. Quite an eye opener. TILE Creek… source of New.

bb:

One source. I’ve been having some flashes about Mossman and his civilization.

Grassy (hiccups):

That’s a deep one.

bb:

I believe they created the RIVER portal system.

Grassy:

Yup. Believe they did. Clever creatures. Fearsome to look at, though. And they all look exactly the same, the whole Big Lot of ’em. They can tell each other apart but us outsiders can’t.

bb (reprovingly):

That sounds a bit racist Grassy.

Grassy:

Nope. Not at all. They say so themselves. They’re a Big Lot of ’em.

bb:

It could be handy that you replaced Hucka D. tonight, Grassy — where did Hucka D. go anyway?

Grassy:

He went to get some food. Mumbled something about being bored and hungry. Think he went to the Tasty Freeze.

bb:

Where exactly is this Tasty Freeze?

Grassy:

Over on Highway 9.

bb:

In RL?

Grassy:

Listen, he said you were wanting to talk next about the Temple of TILE, not that big cube of yours but the real one, or what will be the real one. On The Bends.

bb:

Sure. I’d love to hear about that. Hucka D. said in a letter, if I remember correctly, that you became scared when you saw something on an Alabama road map…

Grassy:

Well, yeah. (pause) But that’s not about the temple. We just couldn’t decide where to build the damn thing. (hiccups again). I mean, we were going to build it on Tyler Bend, you know, but gosh and darnit if it didn’t turn out to be a campground! 1st thing I know in the morning is these stupid human kids and their chocolate covered hands were dangling me upside down way up in the air, pretending I was flying or something. Like Mmmmmm’s can fly! Good thing I’m made of good plastic, coz those bastards dropped me right on my head. I could have *actually* lost an arm. Bastards (spitting noise here).

bb:

Grassy, they thought you were a toy… oh, I wanted to talk about my Mossman flashes, just to run it by you and see what you know.

Grassy:

Sure. But we need to talk about Alma in a minute as well.

bb:

You mean Baker Blinker?

Grassy:

Yeah, I suppose. Hucka D. said to say we need to talk about her. Something about a curse. A (hiccup) gypsy curse.

bb:

Alright that sounds pretty interesting. What do you know about that?

Grassy:

No, he said *you* were going to talk about it. Just pries it out of ya. Said it wouldn’t (hiccup) take much.

bb:

Grassy, do you still have that map on you?

Grassy:

I might. What’s it to you?

bb:

I’d like to see it if I can.

Grassy:

It’s not for sale.

bb:

I didn’t say I wanted to buy it. I just want to look at it.

Grassy:

How many lindens do you gots?

bb:

No… not going down that road again. Did Hucka D. put you up to that as well?

Grassy:

I want to go inworld, but I needs some spending money. Lindens. How much you got?

bb:

Alright, alright. How about a 1000?

Grassy:

Hucka D. said to hold out for 3000, so you might as well just give it to me and get it over with.

bb:

Ok… 3000. So where’s the map?

Grassy:

Wait a minute… let me refresh my drink. (Grassy goes away for a bit; returns). Ok, that’s better. Now what in blue blazes were we talking about (laughs)?

bb:

You were going to show me the map.

Grassy:

Oh yeah. Right. The map. Well, go to, um, Alabama on your computer thingy. Type in, um, in Google, uh, Grassy and Ala.. Alma -ba… Al-a-ba-m-a. Darnit I’m getting pretty drunk here.

bb:

Maybe you should stop and go to bed now. You do have a bed to crawl in tonight don’t you?

Grassy:

I sleep on the ground usually. Can’t find the bed most often. But I like it out in the open.

bb:

Where is your home?

Grassy:

Um, uh, out on highway… no, I already used that. In the mountain… mountains. The range. I’m pointing to the north, over top of my, um, head. (snickers)

bb:

I think you should go home Grassy. To your mountain… range. Get some sleep. We can talk about Alabama and Blinks tomorrow…

Grassy:

Wait, wait, hold on. I’m ok. Just got to lean on something to hold me up. (pause) There, that’s it. So what we wishy washing for? (laughs). Hold on… (snickers, then sound of falling). Ok… I’m on the ground. (long pause, then snoring)

bb:

Hmmm… I suppose that’s it then. Goodnight Grassy, sleep tight.
