Are you about to die or do you have plans to leave the planet in the near future then there is an option to put your avatars in your last will. Ryan Schultz did so a few weaks ago when he was afraid to be not very long among the living. And he asked in his blog who want to be in his last will to take over his avatars in case he would leave the lush Linden meadows.
As I am already the owner of a stable of left-over avatars one more or less wouldn’t be a problem so I wrote him a request.
I would be glad to take over an avatar as we have all our Second Life to celebrate virtual life. Your avatar will become part of the SaveMe Oh army of freedom fighters… If you like the idea that SaveMe Oh takes over a part of you, please send me your most outspoken avi. I wish you a full life as long you are on this world.
And then the living dead start to tremble:
He wrote: “Among the 15 or so people who have contacted me so far about the possibility of inheriting one of my Second Life avatars via my will, the most intriguing request came from the SL celebrity, performance artist, and perennial provocateur SaveMe Oh (blog, Twitter, Flickr, Vimeo).
Which raises a couple of interesting questions:
1. Who is SaveMe Oh, and why does she have such a reputation as a troublemaker, or “freedom fighter” as she puts it?
2. And just who is my most outspoken avatar?
Which raises a couple of interesting questions:

I want you, my blog readers, to weigh in with your opinions. I need everybody to fill me in here and provide some historical context before I make this particular decision.
Why should I leave SaveMe Oh my Velcro Zipper avatar in my will? Why not? Let’s hear your thoughts and opinions on the matter! I’m genuinely curious to hear what you think. Thanks in advance!
UPDATE 7:00 p.m.: Well, I certainly got a lot of feedback from various people, mostly negative. I had been willing to give SaveMe Oh the benefit of the doubt, but many of you consider her to be nothing more than a griefer, and they warn me to consider what I am doing more carefully. So I will.
One person even went so far as to criticize me for wanting to leave my SL avatars to other people in my will in the first place, accusing me of being “furiously in need for attention”. This made me angry, and I told her that I have already explained what I am doing and why I am doing it in my blog, and I don’t feel the need to explain myself further. Either you get it, or you don’t. If you don’t get it, and all you feel you can do is criticize, then so be it.
Now I have a question for Ryan Schultz. Do you think this is the work of a griefer or an artist?
Through the Russian Embassy and investigation site Bellingcat I received this IM conversation between Dido Haas en Kake Broek during the performance by Ultralight Alter at LEA 20. A warning, it’s very disturbing material.
Dido Haas: KAKEEEEE, hows you? Kisssss, soo good to see you
Second Life: Daddio Dow ejected and banned you from this land. You are no longer allowed here and have been ejected.
Dido Haas: huh, lol U2? hahaha
Kake Broek: Very funny
Dido Haas: How are you Kake?
Kake Broek: Killed by the Linden
Dido Haas: Damn, really? coz of your pics on Flickr? mmm that is silly
Kake Broek: “Misrepresentation as Linden”.
Dido Haas: mmm that sucks
Kake Broek: My Second Life identity, thousands of pieces of purchased stuff, collectors’ items and souvenirs, so much invested daily time and money, all quickly removed by one Linden click.
Dido Haas: really? arghh damn
Kake Broek: Yes, anyhow, now this page concerning 11 years of my life has been turned. I keep the support from my friends, and that’s the most important thing!
Dido Haas: yes, kisss
Kake Broek: Beware the Mole People!
Dido Haas: aww, tell me, tell me. Hey what happened with Daddio?
Kake Broek: He is a Linden Lab employee, didn’t you know?
Dido Haas: Nope, I didn’t
Kake Broek: He is security for all LEA sims
Dido Haas: He is my enemy coz he is with Yoon and she is my enemy too. He is crazy guy. I erased them both so they are only grey on my screen
Kake Broek: Thats very smart, they have direct connection to LL in San Francisco. They report directly to them on what happens on LEA sims
Dido Haas: I am not on a Lea sim
Kake Broek: Daddio removed me from LEA 20, just now
Dido Haas: He did? Mmm, crazy guy he is
Kake Broek: He hands out the free sims
For the second time some German friends licked their way into LEA and just like the last time when they licked themselves in for a free sim they put their hippy morals about freedom and a world for all aside and obey the dictatorial LEA regime by agreeing on the ban rules, meaning SaveMe Oh is not welcome while they celebrate their exclusive gift for their obedience and submission to the LEA dictatorship, shaking their new mesh bodies for the benefit of corrupt multinationals.
Yadleen: sorry – I don’t have tipjar today – you may tip ME – if you like ::
Glasz DeCuir: So discrete, we havent percived SaveMe was here!
Mylene Renoir: I smelled her
SaveMe Orfan: Sorry I am banned, all my money goes to the lawyers
Jo Williams: hahaha
Mylene Renoir: Fish
Nero Supermarine: LOL
Jo Williams: lol subtle oh. . . 😉
SaveMe Orfan: Surrounded by idiots subtlety doesn’t work
Jo Williams: i know it lol
Cat Boucher: If you don’t want the SaveMe poster just derender SaveMe and they are gone. She is not very creative today.
SaveMe Orfan: Germans always like to collaborate with dictatorial regimes so you can’t be too subtle. They don’t mind if friends are banned or not
Cat Boucher: I do not collaborate with a regime but with art in another country
SaveMe Orfan: They have no problems with staging parties while others are excluded.
They are quite happy to dance while others cant contribute. The world can fall apart and they still dance.
Second Life: cat Boucher ejected and banned you from this land.
All around the world people are busy to build walls to protect what they think is theirs and exclude the ones who might want to participate or share.
A few artists in Secondlife had the pleasure to make movies which were selected for the real world event Supernova in Denver.
And just like the idea to copy Burning Man in Secondlife which is now a virtual jamboree run by white Christian boy scouts, one participant, NicoleX Moonwall decided to create a virtual equivalent. She asked her fellow participant to join but when SaveMe Oh offered to join this was the answer:
SaveMe Oh: I participated last year in Super Nova and 3 years ago too
NicoleX Moonwall: Cool , but your not invited
SaveMe Oh: Glad Supernova is not run by idiots
Beth Holmes: I was asked too and I was not interested because it was just not my thing although I did say I would do it if they included SaveMe Oh, only after they told me they would not include SaveMe Oh, as if that were a reason to do it.
That is exactly what I was told by Moonwall, Save contacted “Moonwall” and asked to be part of it and was told no and she also was banned from the land. So then I said that I would , without a doubt, not participate in this.
SaveMe Oh: This is exactly what happened, nothing more, nothing less!
Beth Holmes: This kind of stuff really infuriates me, and why I do not join group thought. It was set up from the beginning to divide people, over what? I told Moon awhile ago when Moon was thinking about doing this that I was not interested in being part of an exhibit about my being in Supernova in SL. I do not know Moon well but maybe I am getting a feel about it that I do not like. You cannot set up something that is about the “all” and exclude part of the “all”. It is messed up thinking.
Tizzy Canucci: Second Life is like living in a world of repelling magnets. If someone is in, someone else bounces out. I was unaware of discussions that had gone on before I (exceptionally) said yes to be in this. I was aware that Nicole and Save were not best buddies. But I steer my own course here. I’ve been harangued by Save about work I have done, and her alone. It doesn’t change what I think of her art, but I absolutely refuse to self-censor what I do because someone piles on the social pressure. For it is just as much censorship as banning, and even more insidious.
SaveMe Oh: Censor???? I am only giving some facts on which everybody is free to decide. Some flourish in freedom others prefer the protection of a dictator!
Samara Barzane: Hi Saveme 🙂 we’re about to get started
SaveMe Oh: me too
Samara Barzane: I’m sorry. We will need to ask you to remove your attachment. I hope you understand
SaveMe Oh: Understand what?
Samara Barzane: Your attachments are interfering with our event
SaveMe Oh: I am upgrading your event
Samara Barzane: It is interesting work but this is not your event.
SaveMe Oh: I am the event
Kake Broek: Wassup?
SaveMe Oh: you’re dead, be quiet
Kake Broek: I’m a zombie in LL Limbo ;> a gun on hand
SaveMe Oh: you can’t suicide every day
Kake Broek: I’m not naive ;> the double yellow line is crossed ,> so wassup? U didn’t answered to ;>
SaveMe Oh: I dont speak turkish
Kake Broek: are U Frenchie?
SaveMe Oh: Thanks Dog no
Kake Broek: ahahhha, I’m not too
SaveMe Oh: The Linden say you are
Kake Broek: They are so easy stupid ,> btw, how d’u know that they imagine me Frenchie?
SaveMe Oh: They send me your location
Kake Broek: ahahahaha, tell me ’bout ;> cause that’s not France
SaveMe Oh: Yes, you are true, almost France, how is Albert?
Kake Broek: ahahahaahah, poor Charlène
SaveMe Oh: Take her out once in a while
Kake Broek: Caroline is a nice gentle woman
SaveMe Oh: Glad she dumped Philippe
Inspire Space Park was for long a free haven were everybody could enjoy music and experiment with visual elements but now even here the dictatorship of a few is implemented.
Were once mega farters like Mario Hellstein (Doesn’t matter if it’s ugly as long as it’s big) could do their diarrhea along the hippie farters like Tansee and Venus Adored, now the secret police is preying on disobedient visitors.
Since Delain Canucci and Grafx Newbold handle the space as their private palace the rulers have to force their regulations upon the visitors for their own pathetic hope on glory and eternal fame. And as an ever repeating records you can find again the famous banlists with all SaveMe Oh’s on it they could find in search. Sad, isn’t it?
Grafx Newbold ejected and banned you from this land.
Grafx Newbold: You are just trouble, why so negative. NMO! I’ve not been able to log on in a while i get things going and you come in and chase people off. I’m sure you can attack the park for my ban but please just leave us, please
SaveMe Oh: What is the problem?
Grafx Newbold: Well first off a friend just showed up at the park, Mandel Solano and you came on and he said: “SaveMe Oh at Inspire? Bye!!!”.
SaveMe Oh: So? I am banned because he don’t like me?
Grafx Newbold: Yes, I have to choose between you or him and he has been very nice and you and him and then you started mouthing off what would you do.
SaveMe Oh: I would advice him to mute or derender me so everyone can be free, I would never choose to be a dictator.
Grafx Newbold: What does this mean “Tansee, when you always hide in dictatorships..” and fasist we don’t need that crap here
SaveMe Oh: Tansee was making a joke, and you behave like a fascist so when you think thats crap go do something about yourself
Grafx Newbold: what does that even mean
SaveMe Oh: You behave as a fascist dictator, deciding who can live and who must die, disgusting
Grafx Newbold: Oh whateven i’m never on here
SaveMe Oh: So you just be on for a second to kill people? Even more disgusting
Grafx Newbold: Oh please, look i asked everyone here to tell me in private if you should be banned and some stood up for you
SaveMe Oh: Of course they do as they know Mandel is sick
Grafx Newbold: And said its just Mandel Solano who has a big problem with you
SaveMe Oh: Why listen to a sicko?
Grafx Newbold: Can’t you please just be nice if hes nice i’ll unbann you
SaveMe Oh: I am always nice and honest.
Grafx Newbold: He seems very nice ever hours and hours i spent with him here
SaveMe Oh: And people who don’t like me can mute or derender me. You are not the boss to decide who is nice or not
Grafx Newbold: Can you please put out some effort to apease him anyways? can’t we all just get along?
SaveMe Oh: I was giving everybody a good time except Mandel, you better inform yourself better instead of acting like a trigger happy Trump
Grafx Newbold: If you continue to insult me just forget coming back bye
SaveMe Oh: You see, you behave like a dictator. I have to do what you say!
Grafx Newbold: I am asking people what they think about you more chimed in against you in a demcratic fashion. People have a problem with Mandel , what am i to do? y’all are like a bunch of drama kids.
SaveMe Oh: When people have a problem with Mandel you advice them just the same, if they don’t like him they can mute or derender him, everybody has those tools in SL but never behave yourself as the dictator, that’s rather stupid
Grafx Newbold: so please it’s my park. who is gonna try to keep you kids from draging your negativity and drama here, tell me?
SaveMe Oh: Be free, and let people be free
Grafx Newbold: I try . I hate playing referee and banning anyone
SaveMe Oh: So unban me and give Mandel some advice how he can mute me
Grafx Newbold: In fact we cleared our ban list for over 300 people everyone to let them back in . not long ago very few people are on ban, maybe 20. With advise and comment from several regulars i’ve decided to unban you, but you wait to return later because Mandel is also unbanned. Please respect our guest and get along while here, he left, but please try to be nice while here.
A week later the silly Inspire farters prepared Grafx a rezdayparty on which he didn’t appear, so his drewling minions farted his profile pic for nothing in the air. This must have frustrated Delain Canucci so much that she didn’t like my participation.
Delaιn Canυccι shouts: people please derender SaveMe Oh , she is NOT part of the show
And now every time I appear she pushes the ban button.
I went on a search from some solidarity from so called friends.
SaveMe Oh: Why you unfriend me all the time? Are you Mandels slave now?
Tansee: You know why,,, it makes me sad each time
SaveMe Oh: Why you never choose my side, what did I do to you?
Tansee: How have you been ?
SaveMe Oh: Sad too
Tansee: Life if fine for me,,, RL busy summer. SL not so important.
SaveMe Oh: So when its not so important why you allow others to abuse me?
Tansee: You are the one that allows that not me 🙂
SaveMe Oh: You could stand up for freedom together with me instead of choosing the opressors side
Tansee: I always stand for freedom and you know me,,, I stand alone
SaveMe Oh: Then you only have to tell others to mute or derender me, thats all, not fake friendship
Tansee: You really know that does not work with me, you should know by now
SaveMe Oh: I don’t get time to know as you run away all the time
Tansee: I dont do fake friendship
SaveMe Oh: Yes you do, you support my banning without reason
Tansee: How is the weather where you are? It was just very hot but cooling down
SaveMe Oh: Do the weather talk with Mandel, he must be sweating
Tansee: You are not my true friend ,,, 😦 thats okay
SaveMe Oh: When I am not your true friend, is that a reason to support my exclusion?
Tansee: please ,,,,,
SaveMe Oh: I always try to defend everybody’s freedom, if I like them or not. Do you know why Delain bans me here all the time when I appear? Think its funny?
Tansee: Only when you are rude
SaveMe Oh: No, today I appear and she banned me at the spot, fascist methods
Tansee: You are quite well behaved atm,,, that is the SaveMe Oh that I love
SaveMe Oh: Its all about playing the boss, I always behave, art is my only goal! Actually you should know that as a so called friend
Tansee: 🙂 you are a great artist,,,,,
SaveMe Oh: Yes I am
Tansee: And humble also 🙂
SaveMe Oh: So its a pity people around you try to make that impossible. Humble is not a quality, quite useless for an artist
Tansee: 🙂 I am a humble artist
SaveMe Oh: You are humble maybe but not an artist, you glue stuff together, that’s a nice hobby.
Tansee: If you knew me as a true friend,,,, well then maybe you might know 🙂
SaveMe Oh: I know what I see, don’t have to know more and when you say you are the sweetest person on the world who am I to doubt that
Tansee: i have nothing to prove
SaveMe Oh: Me neither, when you are already the best SL artist for years, facts are facts
SaveMe Oh: So you only have to help me so I can do my job
Tansee: please,,, you know me better than than
SaveMe Oh: The only thing I ask, help me, not kill me
Tansee: Love me
SaveMe Oh: I already love everybody, I even save them
Tansee: And I will return the love
SaveMe Oh: I do everything unconditional, the only true love
Tansee: 🙂 I am sorta giggling in RL at all this
SaveMe Oh: That makes me happy
Tansee: Can you read my mind,,,,,I am saying ,,,,
SaveMe Oh: I hope it becomes a loud laugh so your neighbours start to wonder what happens.
SaveMe Oh: Haal die ban er even af
Delaιn Canυccι: Ben je niet goed?
SaveMe Oh: hoezo?
Delaιn Canυccι: aangezien je je niet kunt gedragen
SaveMe Oh: Ga jij daar over?
Delaιn Canυccι: precies
SaveMe Oh: PVV? NSB? Waar ben je van?
Delaιn Canυccι: allemaal xD
SaveMe Oh: Trots?
Delaιn Canυccι: nee hoor .. ik denk alleen dat je krijgt wat je verdient
SaveMe Oh: Sluit je al langer mensen uit?
Delaιn Canυccι: nee,je bent de eerste die het gehaald heeft
SaveMe Oh: En wie heeft jou aangenomen als kampbeul? Heb je daar voor doorgeleerd?
Delaιn Canυccι: degene die de sim heeft
SaveMe Oh: Zo. En betaald het goed?
Delaιn Canυccι: heb jij doorgeleerd om zo’n enorm kutwijf te zijn of is dat aangeboren?
SaveMe Oh: Heb je ook cursus beledigen gehad?
Delaιn Canυccι:schijnt dat de pot de ketel verwijt he ? 😉
SaveMe Oh: En welke misdaad heb ik begaan volgens de obersturmbahnfurher?
Delaιn Canυccι: griefen met een hud en gisteren die massa rotzooi in the sim duwen
SaveMe Oh: Je vroeg zelf of ik je kont wilde aanraken…..beetje kinderachtig
Delaιn Canυccι: lol wie is hier nu een kind ? je moet en zal het zo draaien dat jij de arme SaveMe Oh is alweer geband ..maar ik heb hier geen zin en geen tijd voor en neem je advies ter harte en block je met genoegen 🙂
SaveMe Oh: Jij wilt alleen je eigen massa rotzooi laten zien, lukt je goed trouwens, zelden zo’n massa rotzooi bij elkaar gezien.
