After a tour in RL, as somebody has to pay for the pizza, I returned yesterday night in my beloved SL to get angry after just 1 minute. I was invited in SLB9 to hear Chantal Harvey talking about machinima. She was interviewed by Rowan Derryth who apparently found a new hobby after leaving LEA; playing Oprah Winfrey. Now I see no reason at all to hear what Chantal Harvey has to say as I can’t remember any movie of her worthwhile to remember so I started to have a long piss. And as you can predict, the wannabe artists and their bodyguards start to complain immediately.
[16:41] Tanisha Benoir: If you are not interested in listening or contributing in a sensible way why don’t you just leave?
But I decided to continue as it was obvious that after my 2 weeks absence a strong lesson had to be given as my darling Rose Borchovski was brainwashed completely by the art snobs as she is so sweet that she wants to please everybody.
Now what is the problem? Rowan Derryth wants to play in a virtual world the Oprah Winfrey show with herself as Oprah and all the wannabe artists as her guests. The audience (10 people) has to shut up and sit in an auditorium and watch Oprah and guests sitting on a couch for one hour doing nothing. Although the auditorium is much smaller than the idiot ones Jayjay builds it is crazy people come up with this format. Everybody has enough of watching TV as you get bored till dead, then we find an exciting virtual world and what we do??? Play TV.
When you go to the wonderful sim of my darling Rose you can’t walk a stair normal as the steps are floating towards you but here she sits as a schoolgirl listening to Mama Oprah, afraid to move too much or fart when Chantal is talking. In IM she begs me to behave. And the same for all the other surrealists who are not able to let a clock run normal and on time.
So for the next “talkshow” I demand that all the guests of the show are hanging with their heads down on the ceiling like bats without wings, that the host has the face of a ticking time bomb and that the audience is piled up in purple sardine cans while a giant eyeball is bouncing and singing the national hymn of Iceland.
Why all artists become boring people who wants to move to a cottage in Denmark as quick as possible to watch the flowers grow in the short summers? Why their biggest desire is to become a farmer after all?
As users of a virtual world we have the right to get our screens filled with interesting visuals and surreal interactions otherwise we could better watch the real Oprah as she does it much better and is a professional!
When we want to know the opinion of an artist about her work. The 10 people can stand around her and ask. We don’t need fake TV studios or VIP meet & greet sessions to do so. So next time I see a setting like this I will do the visuals myself, keep your ban button active as this is a warning.
Did I hear what Chantal or Rowan were saying? No, I had my sound off.
Wasn’t there anything surreal? Yes, the officer, of duty, Tanisha Benoir, was a child avatar. So it was a little odd to piss over her baby head.
