Rentals April 5, 2011

Something’s gotta go (see post title), and it’s probably my 1536 rental in Shubelik, pictured below with cabin perched high on a hill above the Linden Sea. Not written in stone yet, but it’s most likely the logical outsie of the bunch. Never really explored the surrounding region that much either, despite the obvious beauty.

Dogpatch (Norum) will stay for now, but that’s the cheapest of the 3 in question by a considerable margin. And such a great view from the second floor across my old Noru land! But I had to delete the ghost train discussed a bit here.

Below is pictured my newest rental, in Blueberry and also on the Sansara continent, like the Shubelik parcel. This is in a real nice area as well, and more toward the center of things (Shubelik lies on the southern edge of the continent).

So I think I’ll keep Dogpatch and the unnamed Blueberry house. It goes without saying that Pietmond is still around, of course.

This would be a great place to retire from my short lived career of town making if I so desired. I have about 320 prims free still after the addition of this cabin and some minimal landscaping. Incredible view!

But seriously (seriously?), back in Pietmond Baker ponders what to do next to further the cause. He heads down to the labyrinth to take a look at Peter’s Rock, and decides, for real, to separate that 32 square meter parcel enclosed by the metal fence from other Pietmond parcels. In my recently created history (part 1 of 11) for the town, I list a number of lies believed about Peter’s Rock. But what is the truth? We must go back to the very beginnings of my land ownership in Otaki Gorge to attempt to find out.

But there’s still so much to learn about Pietmond. What was that small castle on the hillside used for in olden days? Was it the original TILE Temple?

Gallery 9 beside it, or more correctly at this point, Gallery *None*, is still empty. I have an idea who *should* be exhibited there, but I’m not sure it will ever happen. But in any case I think I’ll dedicate, silently, this gallery to him, another old syncher friend. It’s a bit off the beaten trail anyway — not sure who would get down here to visit unless I created another gallery kiosk for it, which I don’t think would be a good idea. Technically it’s still part of the Pietmond Art Crawl, along with the 2 parts of SoSo, the Norum Gallery, Something To CHRO About, and also the Tower of TILE just to its north.

And Baker still “lives” in the town’s Orange House, following the pattern of original town hero Peter SoSo, and namesake of the SoSo galleries just to its right in the below photo. The plan was for him to move into the Home o’ Fibs just up the hill, and then convert Orange House into a town hall of sorts. But it hasn’t happened yet, and may never. Baker’s pretty happy still in these digs.

Main Way through the center of town is still solid. Don’t plan to change anything about it anytime soon.

Baker continues down Long Way, gliding past Peter’s Grave. He pauses to check it out closer. Peter’s Grave or Mound, not Peter’s Rock, is actually what the town is built around, practically speaking.

Only the central, 16 sq meter parcel of the 3 making up the mound is not abandoned land.

Actually, here’s a related thread on the subject from Second Citizen MK II:

http://www.secondcitizen.net/Forum/showthread.php?t=1064

But of course that doesn’t explain why it is Peter’s Mound above and beyond any ordinary mound. Is Peter truly buried within, and if so, which Peter? Peter SoSo’s father or grandfather (Good and Great respectively), as the recent history post speculates? Multiple Peters?

Hucka D.:

Warren Zeevon lived in what’s now called Gallery None, baker b. The gerbil proprietor.

bb:

Thanks Hucka D. Good to “see” you. In this older Otaki Gorge related post, it states that Peter, the one buried in the mound, may have been from outer space, making him an Ancient Astronaut I suppose. Interesting that it seems to refer to Baker Bloch as the tip of a golden pyramid as well, the All Seeing Eye.

Hucka D. (agreeing):

All Seeing “I”, yes.

bb:

Is this particular Peter actually a rabbit, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

And this mound relates to the 18th and final hole on a golf course, which this particular rabbit image seems to be holding the pin for. The pin is the palm tree [in the picture below,] directly above the center of the mound in other words.

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

Hucka D., in PB, Peter the Rabbit is called Pierre by a worm which seems to be the same as a worm hole.

Hucka D.:

Right.

bb:

He teaches Peter about the time machine. He is a worm driving a time machine. Has to be a worm hole, then.

Hucka D.:

You have 28 days and a bit more to wrap things up here.

bb:

In Pietmond?

Hucka D.:

Yes.

*****

bb:

Otaki Gorge property was bought right after “Carrcass-4”, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Correct. Big E.

bb:

There are 2 sides, a Nascera side and a Arecsan side. E and Schwa. Eschwa.

Hucka D.:

The rock is the planet Sapphire’s parents come from orbiting Alpha Centuri.

bb:

Thanks, Hucka D. This morning I thought about how Grey Rock at Whitehead Crossing is symbol for Jeogeot as a whole, perhaps, but specifically encapsulated in the opposition of Yeot and Aotearoa, described in other places as, respectively, white and black Go pieces.

Hucka D.:

*Gong* is a Go piece.

bb:

The Yeot pool, yes. Next to Teepot.

Hucka D.:

Teepot or Pietmond had to go the way of the dodo. Pietmond is a town sent, and Teepot merely a town sent by Pietmond. It was obvious: shadow and real. White and black. Isn’t it?

bb:

Yes. Pietmond then escapes this gravitation of Jeogeot. Pietmond will outlive Jeogeot.

Hucka D.:

Yes. (pause) Because it is above any virtual reality. Particular one, I mean.

bb:

Will it be shifted to OpenSim?

Hucka D.:

May-be.

bb:

But Grey Rock in Whitehead Crossing represents Pietmond itself, and perhaps Peter’s Rock within.

Hucka D.:

Yes. There is a Geojeot Rock that came before Grey Rock, shall we put it. Mossman uncovered former, then recognized the energy again when encountering Ol’ Whitehead at his Crossing. Grey Rock is an overlap of 3, separate energies and directions. Grey Rock is quite important. It is a way of remembering Jeogeot when the continent has long disappeared. There is seemingly negative energy, black, balanced by seemingly positive energy, white. Whitehead created the first humanoid toy avatar, ensouled. He was a toy avatar maker. T-Bonz, or, sorry, Dirk Stew is a direct descendant of this first, living human toy.

bb:

What was the toy’s name, Hucka D.?

Hucka D.:

Herman.

bb:

Like in Herman Munster?

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

Did the Mossmen get along with this Herman?

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

Did The Bees?

Hucka D.:

Yes.

bb:

There’s a giant gray rock, an asteriod actually, floating directly above Peter’s Rock now in Pietmond, Hucka D.

Hucka D.:

Yes. Ask the main question tonight.

bb:

Will we soon start a SID’s 1st Oz interview?

Hucka D.:

*Yes.*

bb:

Should we warm up, as it were, on this blog?

Hucka D.:

Start please.

bb:

Thanks.

 

Pietmond Rocks February 21, 2011

Filed under: Otaki Gorge,Pietmond,Shubelik,Uncategorized — baker Blinker @ 9:41 am

It might go away in a month or 3, but for now, Pietmond rocks!

First, some news: SoSo West exibitor Mike Casey and I have completed his large, 4 part interview, starting here:

https://bakerblinker.wordpress.com/interviews/mikecasey01/

You can find the links to all 4 parts under the “SoSo West: Mike Casey” sub-heading on the Pietmond Galleries page from the top of this blog:

https://bakerblinker.wordpress.com/interviews/

And here are the links in case you have problems finding it on that page for some reason:

https://bakerblinker.wordpress.com/interviews/mikecasey01/

https://bakerblinker.wordpress.com/interviews/mikecasey03/
https://bakerblinker.wordpress.com/interviews/mikecasey04/

Now admittedly I’ve had some trouble starting up any interviews I’ve wished to hold in the last several years — someone, an avatar anyway, said, straight to my face after I brought up the idea, “Now *why* would I want to do *that*?” But in that instance I’m glad the idea was snubbed so quickly because I wouldn’t want to waste a lot of time on a product which might turn sour at any time.

Mike’s interview is different. I have a feeling I’m going to look back in several years and think: something started with this. Already I have ideas about how to carry the energy generated into other projects.

But I’m proud to have *all* the present Pietmond exhibitors, even if we don’t do specific interviews related to their work. The interaction with each and every one is special. It’s just that I’ve known Mike for quite a while, and apparently we had a lot to chat about.

Future plans: Mike and I devoted the last 2 of 4 sections of his interview to the discussion of audiovisual synchronicities in the main. Following up on that, I, 1) want to perhaps collected more art from other such “synchers”, perhaps attached to additional, albeit smaller interviews, 2) do a study on a specific syncher who probably won’t fall into the former group, and, 3) work on my own SID’s 1st Oz site again, an a/v synch mentioned quite a number of times on this blog already. Hucka D. or Hucka Doobie has stated a desire for an indepth talk about this synch going on several years now. And, 4) the possibility also exists of opening a synch related board again, or at least I’ll leave that door ajar for now.

On other fronts, Pietmond South remains the main, growing part of Pietmond presently, and I plan to exhibit more material there soon, perhaps a retrospective collage exhibit from past masters like Max Ernst and Joseph Cornell. For educational purposes only, of course; I won’t sell any of that kind of art. Still searching for additional exhibitors, but at this point I want the fit to feel totally right, since I’m so pleased with what I already have showing in Pietmond.

And despite consistently applied conservation efforts, I’m finally running out of prims to work with here. 😦

Even so, I believe another, small gallery or gallery space will be opening in Pietmond soon, called the Asteriod Gallery or perhaps The Darwin Asteriod Gallery. More soon on that as well; prelim. pic for now:

*And*, I now rent some more land. I know I didn’t really need it, but the view was so spectacular that I apparently couldn’t resist, hehe. It’s on the southern edge of the Sansara continent, a landmass I’ve largely ignored since moving to Jeogeot going on close to 2 years ago now (!)

Alls I plan for that location is a skybox for continued rezzing tests/experiments, and perhaps a nice ground structure of some kind. Addtional note on this: I was all set to rent in Blackmount, in the sink again, when I popped over to find that the land had already been sold to someone else. Fate, then, we’ll call it. And of course I’ll most likely start exploring around this new area and record my sundry finds on this blog.
