The Well Informed Man Aka The Arado Oracle

Every time our world is hit by deadly attacks it is just a matter of time before the “well informed man” shines a light on the situation to comfort us all.

When Capcat post an observation on Facebook it didn’t took long before the “well informed man” came with his nuanced insights.

Snapshot_311

Capcat: People get killed. We see the news. We see the other news. And the other… People kill and people get killed. Too many people killing, always blaming other people. Definitely too many people getting killed.  Will we transform, will we become monsters, will we become saviors? Will we transform?…

Marmaduke Arado “We see the news. We see the other news. And the other…“ And by doing this we may make informed guesses about what is really going on.

Capcat: I don’t feel informed at all!

Marmaduke Arado:  I however feel very well informed as a consequence of checking all sides to any story.

Capcat:  Because you believe one side over the other. I don’t believe anybody anymore!

SaveMe Oh:  And the well informed man was so proud of all his smart observations. Nobody will fool him. We only have to wait until this well informed man tell us all the final truth

Marmaduke Arado: The final truth about Aleppo is that the jihadi terrorists who held the eastern part of the city hostage for four years have been defeated, were evacuated from the town and now the reconstruction is beginning and people will be coming back. And anyone is welcome to prove me wrong. But maybe you think this is “Putin stuff”?

Capcat:  There is Putin stuff and Obama stuff all over the place…

SaveMe Oh: I only hear what the well informed man tells me about how I have to see things when he shows his great wisdom. Once the well informed man said he was my friend, after he had regrets. Maybe he was not that well informed then.

Capcat: Syria is not about any of you, or your friendship, or the lost of it!

Marmaduke Arado:  I agree Capcat. SaveMe Oh’s arguments are school children ones.

SaveMe Oh:  School children are the future. Unless the well informed man has also the other side of the story about the worth of education for everybody?

Marmaduke Arado:  I don’t understand the previous comment.

SaveMe Oh:  There we see the importance of education

Capcat:  I do believe in children who will change the world. I am naive like that…

SaveMe Oh:  As long it’s not only well informed men teaching them

Capcat:  These children will probably will have teach themselves away from all of us.

Cherry Manga: Hope in future is the only thing you can do to keep yourself alive Capcat, though I don’t have any hope in future or human kind.

SaveMe Oh: Let’s wait until the well informed man tells us if we have a future at all.

Cherry Manga:  I’m interested these days into a way of thinking that says that to end a war, we should do nothing, no reply. It has some sense kinda, if your enemy doesn’t see you react, why would he continues to shoot.

SaveMe Oh: Why we should have enemies?

Cherry Manga:  “we” as nation, state, country, religion, you pick yours, my “we” is hippy 😉

Marmaduke Arado: Aren’t you glad, Capcat, that women can now walk the streets of Aleppo (the part controlled until now by the jihadists) without being forced to wear a burka?

SaveMe Oh:  Ah, the well informed man starts with his insights

Capcat: That’s just a picture, tells me nothing

SaveMe Oh: Wait wait, for sure the well informed man has 100 of more links for you. Don’t be impatient.

Capcat:  The pictures of the Russian Ambassador murder tell me a lot. They tell me the photographer had a lot of free movement to take the perfect pictures. They look like performance documentation…

Marmaduke Arado: But you believed in those videos of the “last messages” coming from Aleppo showing close ups of faces?

Capcat: No, I don’t believe in no one! I believe in death. That is very true. All the spectacle around it, that I don’t believe.

SaveMe Oh: The well informed man can even make death people walk again

Death threat

Marmaduke Arado:  So, Capcat, you don’t believe in, say, LBGT people when they say they are being persecuted?

Capcat: Don’t be demagogic please.

Marmaduke Arado So you believe in some people after all.

SaveMe Oh: After all, the well informed man is so kind

Marmaduke Arado:  Ok, I will go back to informing myself about Syria and leave you alone.

SaveMe Oh: There is a bright hope for our future

 

Keeping my dignity

Capcat: I believe in many people! How could I survive not believing in anyone at all. We are talking about a very specific thing – war. And at this point, about this subject, I don’t believe in the news. By the way, do believe in Pussy Riot (let me be a demagogue too).

SaveMe Oh: Capcat, dont tell him that……….

Capcat:  Pussy Riot is tabu?

SaveMe Oh: Don’t wake him up sssssssssss

Capcat:  I love all my friends, even when I disagree with. I do that a lot, because I’m frontal. I still like Marmaduke Arado very much, even if we don’t agree on this.

SaveMe Oh: Marry him and try to distract him

Capcat:  He is married to a very very wonderful lady!

SaveMe Oh: In Syria they also can have more than one wife

Capcat: I don’t think so… You are confusing with Saudi Arabia.

SaveMe Oh: The well informed man will find you a Wikipedia link on this.

Marmaduke Arado:

WARNING to all artists and art event organizers in SL.

SaveMe Oh’s (Hoeme Vas on FB) continuing campaign to sabotage the work of anyone who does not pay a dog-like tribute to SaveMe Oh’s psychopathic behavior has escalated, with SaveMe Oh now using alts besides “SaveMe” ones to infiltrate events where SaveMe Oh’s presence is highly unwelcome. The latest such SaveMe Oh spy to be detected was a SaveMe Oh alt named Mar Lutrova, who managed to get into our recent performance in Universidade de Aveiro (after an attack by undesirable “SaveMe” alts, who were ejected) and brutishly start vomiting insults upon arrival.

Unfortunately, being alert to Mar Lutrova does not solve the problem because SaveMe Oh can create as many alts as SaveMe Oh wants for SaveMe Oh’s fascistic purposes.

Meanwhile, SaveMe Oh fan boys and girls can freely enlighten me on how exactly SaveMe Oh’s repellent behavior is connected to art (there is no Salazaresque “previous censorship” in FB comments, unlike in SaveMe Oh’s blog).

I found out, SaveMe Oh has no less than about 40 alts just with the surname Lutrova. All their first names include “Mar” at the beginning (Marcel, Margarita, etc.). All were created in a period of weeks 8 years ago and their profiles are completely blank.

I tend to see them as SaveMe Oh’s virtual suicide bombers, ready to try to destroy those who are designated unworthy by the Caliph of SL.

To help to cure Marmaduke Arado from his continuous paranoia I present tonight the extraordinary Kikas & Marmaduke Tribute. 50% of the tips will be donated to Kikas Babenco to pay the bills for the cure.

The Extraordinary Kikas & Marmaduke Tribute will take place at Two Fish, Cariacou, 11 December 2015 at 14.00 PST.

Don’t Worry Be Happy

Kikas & Marmaduke Tribute

Marmaduke Arado:  We could not attend the event even if we wanted to, because we were banned from Two Fish by Rose Borchovski about two years ago, after I protested against the witch hunting going on at SaveMe Oh’s group Licking Every Ass.

SaveMe Oh: How unconvenient, maybe you can ask her to be unbanned. Another trick I sometimes use is coming with an alt, I suggest using Marmaduke Oh. In the Licking Every Ass group you are of course welcome as always, but that group you left yourself, if I am well informed? Of course I am also willing to repeat the tribute on grounds chosen by you. Universidade de Aveiro sim maybe? BTW, you are not on the banlist at all, I suggest you try first.

Marmaduke Arado: Ah, now I’m not on the banlist anymore? How convenient. Have you checked with Rose?

SaveMe Oh:  No, but maybe you never have been on her banlist.

Marmaduke Arado: So you want me to go through the humiliation of going to Two Fish to see if I’m on the banlist or not? I suggest you check the information I presented about this on your blog at the time. And also check the Licking EA group chat.

Death threat

SaveMe Oh: Kikas is already there in the sim (I see her on my minimap)  to do the work you dont want to do.

Marmaduke Arado: The message me and Kikas got was this: “You have been ejected from Two Fish by Rose Borchovski”

SaveMe Oh: Ejected and banned are two different things.

Marmaduke Arado:  “maybe you can ask her to be unbanned.” Sometimes I believe you REALLY don’t get it.

SaveMe Oh: Why I have to ask? I didnt ban or eject you.

Marmaduke Arado: No it was not you, it was your (at the time at least) dear wife Rose, in your presence. Btw, as it shlould be clear from my first comment, we wouldn’t want to go anyway. We wouldn’t want to create a “bad mood” in what otherwise promises to be a hilarious event. And of course we are very flattered by the tribute, who wouldn’t? Btw, when you pass around our wearable scenes in the event, expect criticism that you are just buying the audience with freebies so that they stay until the end.

SaveMe Oh: You have transfer free scenes? OMG, where?

Marmaduke Arado: You’re right, I forgot they are no transfer. Oh well, the good side is that you won’t be criticized for distributing freebies so that the audience stays until the end of the performance. By the `way, remind me of what you were saying about dictators banning people from their sims?

The Extraordinary Kikas & Marmaduke Tribute

Kikas & Marmaduke Tribute

An Evil Genius, LEA lickers, all tried to keep SaveMe Oh away from the performances of her best friends Kikas & Marmaduke. This is unacceptable and to honour her friends SaveMe Oh will pay her own tribute to Kikas & Marmaduke. DJ Eifachfilm Vacira will take care of the music. 50% of the tip jar revenues will be for Kikas & Marmaduke and maybe they will even appear as mystery guests. Come all and show your admiration for this unique couple because your life might seem normal, except when we stumbled in the unexpected, then we wonder about so-called normality, but if you want answers you need to see with your own eyes why life is not so normal as it seems.

Don’t worry if you have nothing to wear.

Where? In Two Fish, Cariacou. When? Friday 11 december at 2 PM SLT!

Reunited With My Best Friends

When I heard my best friends Kikas Babenco and Marmaduke Arado were doing a performance and that my much beloved DJ Eifachfilm Vacira would take care of the music I couldn’t sleep for weeks from pure excitement.

Snapshot_345

And so I try to go to the sim of Universidade de Aveiro early, only to find out that the Evil Genius had banned me. So I ran back home to change quickly for myself and then got in. But the moment of pure happiness lasted only some minutes as the Evil Genius renewed his ban list.

Knipsel 5

Desperate to miss any quality time with my sweet friends Kikas & Marma, who always enjoyed my contributions so much, I ran back home to change again for another me, but the true PIDE background of some of the Portuguese sim owners took no risks anymore and arranged a new ban list for the sim containing every SaveMe ever born. King Herod would have been jealous.

Knipsel 7

The only solution to be at least close to my dearest friends was to go undercover as somebody else that was me. But being me but not me is difficult, I don’t know to push what buttons and by mistake I add some SaveMe signs that were received as sabotage what was of course not a second my objective. I deeply apologise for the caused trouble, the foreseen upgrade of the rather old art came from a good heart.

Snapshot_348

Marmaduke Arado: It is over now. Sabotage at the end.

Zola Zsun: I am innocent!

Solar Hydro Cleanslate: Heh, the Save Me/Save You was not part of it?

Marmaduke Arado: I am going. Good night

To apologise I went back after the performance but I still couldn’t get in.

SaveMe Oh: Wan, I cant get in. Am I still banned? Or did the event already end?

Wan Laryukov: Love I am not the owner of this sim and I think its finished.

SaveMe Oh: Now for that you need to be a Genius, I asume?

Wan Laryukov: ahahahahahah

SaveMe Oh: What a pity, would have loved to see my old friends. Well, maybe next time.

Wan Laryukov: Yes Kikas and Marmaduke

SaveMe Oh: We were almost married once. Me and Kikas and Marma. I can still taste their baba de camelo.

Wan Laryukov: ahahhahaah a trio must be good. I love baba de camelo. Sweet dreams hun

SaveMe Oh: With baba it cant get any sweeter!

Bullshitting About Collaborative Virtual Environments

You can bullshit a lot on paper when you over and over describe the works of zero significance of the usual suspects as Bryn Oh, Eupalinos Ugajin, Rose Borchovski and Alpha Auer. But it would be fairer to say just in the open: I want to promote my own work, which is, although rather hippie, not bad at all.

Delicate Death 4

And what can promote your work better than name a few times the name of the only existing artist in the virtual world; SaveMe Oh.

Catarina Carneiro de Sousa aka as Capcat Ragu did another attempt to promote her work by several “SaveMe Oh” namedropping in her latest scientific paper but did it need to be in such a lousy way? The times Capcat Ragu really visited a performance of SaveMe Oh one can count on the fingers of one hand. And so we get some bullshitting about what she assumes could be right.

So I better pretend I am Catarina Carneiro de Sousa and produce some decent work.

In Collaborative Virtual Environments, pseudo artistic activities are carried out by avatars that fall into the “I Want To Be A Performance Artist” subgroup. They steal from conventional art forms such as theatre, opera, dance, circus and musical performance and label it as new types of enactions, tailored to an audience with a severe death wish.

Death threat

The duo of Portuguese wannabe artists Kikas Babenco and Marmaduke Arado takes advantage of their rich Wikipedia knowledge ability combined with their dexterity to attach marketplace artefacts to their avatars, in order to satisfy an audience who loved to play with dolls at a younger age.

Coward SaveMe Oh
How different this is in the approach used by the only artist in Secondlife; SaveMe Oh, who displays full installations in the world, which in reality are not part of the environment, but are ‘worn’ by her avatar. SaveMe Oh use this strategy in her performances to create a strong visual impact, usually with satirical intent towards the world of art and the social codes of the metaverse. These events are usually improvised and participatory, as SaveMe Oh often offer her artefacts to the public and invite them to join in the performance.

Lennart Nilsson13

Not a lot of people answer to this invitation as the aura of SaveMe Oh is so strong and heavily focused on her artistic persona – whose avatar, more than an author, embodies the work itself, that it scares of potential participators who are better labelled as blind admirers. SaveMe referred to herself (an avatar) as an artwork and not as an author, in the talk promoted by Transdisciplinares Artes Lisboa (2014), in the activities related to the event and exhibition entitled Virtual Interactive Participatory Arts. SaveMe presents herself as an agent provocateur in the art world, often invading artistic events with her performances, which can cover a whole SIM.

It should be noted that, while it can be argued that this somewhat ironical questioning of authorship and identity may have roots in previous ‘real world’ works, the spatial, environmental and behavioural properties of SaveMe Oh’s performances are unique to the affordances of a CVE and could hardly take place in our world..”

Be Part Of The Art

As Kikas Babenco & Marmaduke Arado want us to be part of the art I tried to join them in their event but it turned out they don’t want me to be part of the art. To honour these great artists anyway I send a friend on my behalve to be PART OF THEIR ART.

Glasz DeCuir: “I am forced here by Saveme Oh to see this ridicule show”

Josie Anderton: LOL

Starry Bosch: Just been on the fan

Glasz DeCuir: And i will repeat this: “I am forced here by Saveme Oh to see this ridicule show”

Apmel Meerson: I guess she couldn’t come in person.

Josie Anderton: hehe

Delain Canucci: Oh god

Cicadetta Stillwater Facepalms

Delain Canucci: Sighs. Guess another one on the block list.

Glasz DeCuir: Sorry to particle TOM, whom I dont know by the rest…. fuck off, included my sweet neighbour

Patience Roxley: Save Me timoooooooooooooooo

 

Cicadetta Stillwater ejected and banned Glasz DeCuir from this land.

Glasz DeCuir: Was a relaxing theraphy :)) And they rejected me twice, now at home. Samantha Chester banned me.

She Lagged Us Out

While Kikas & Marmaduke, Mandel Solano and Art Blue and other lovers of tight security measures were peaking in since long I succeed to perform together with DD for almost one hour in a BURN sim. A Miracle???? No, at the end some jealous particle farters decided that the ban button should be used anyway, even when almost 40 people saw the light.

Snapshot_163

After the show was finished they allowed me back in.

Ori:  DD crashed?

SaveMe Oh: DD left as a protest about your banning procedure

Ori:  That would be weird

Bethany Fire: Wonders what banning procedure? No one was banning anyone 😦 😦

SaveMe Oh: Why weird?

Ori:  I didn’t ban anyone

SaveMe Oh: [16:08] [2015/06/05 15:59] TomFlo123 Resident ejected and banned you from this land.

Lenni Foxtrot: I gave perms to the particle people. I think you just scare them SaveMe.

Ori:  Why Lenni? Wow, why would Tom do that?

Lenni Foxtrot: To do this, they owned the sim for an hour

Ori:  He was a guest himself

SaveMe Oh: Ask them. I have no idea

Lenni Foxtrot: I will, sorry SaveMe.

SaveMe Oh: Doesn’t matter. I am used to this

Lenni Foxtrot: The perms thing is so complicated in SL, this sim ownership thing is new to me.

SaveMe Oh: See it positive, we succeed to interact for almost an hour. Not bad at all.

Lenni Foxtrot: I loved tonight 🙂 felt so damn good here.

SaveMe Oh: It was wonderful

Lenni Foxtrot: I want more of this

Samanta Foxy: Even if is not so nice be banned in that way

SaveMe Oh: Virtual egos can grow big.

Lenni Foxtrot: Banning does feel bad, I got banned one, for trying to sell Burn on a builders place. I cried for a week.

SaveMe Oh: I get banned daily. So don’t worry, it’s healthy

Lenni Foxtrot: But you say what you think SaveMe

SaveMe Oh: Always and when a ban is the consequence so be it

Ori:  Why did you ban SaveMe Oh?

Particle Tom (tomflo123): why?

Ori:  I didn’t see any different question in that sentence

Particle Tom (tomflo123): her show was some other time, not during ours

Ori:  which means?

Particle Tom (tomflo123): she is documented griefer, banned multiple places, she lagged us out

Ori:  you were a guest here

Particle Tom (tomflo123): we couldn’t do it, we asked her repeatedly

Ori:  then you should have told lenni

Particle Tom (tomflo123): Over and over and over we did. We put the burden of the show on you guys. Police your own sim, not me.

Ori:  She has been banned from so many places

Particle Tom (tomflo123): for the same

Ori:  She’s welcome here

Samanta Foxy : My first ban was some days ago in another DD concert, were kicked me and SaveMe together XD

SaveMe Oh: Hey, the party is where I am, so it’s not me who has the problem

Lenni Foxtrot: we had 40 something people here. It was really different

Ori:  Wow, that Tom is one sick drama queen.

Did Eupalinos Look Like Eupalinos?

At the reopening of the Museo the Metaverso in CRAFT opensim it was a happy reincarnation party at the graveyard. No less than 68 corpses took the opportunity to reinvent themselves and participate in the big contest of the night; do I look like my former self? Who succeeded and who failed to copy himself? Because to be tagged on facebook it was from extreme importance you would look a bit like yourself otherwise everybody could claim to be someone else or worse…be SaveMe Oh.

In great expectation everyone was waiting of course for the appearance of Eupalinos Ugajin. Would he look like the Dadasticks or toiletFLUXers as we know him so well or would he have failed to copy everything in time from secondlife to open sim?

10845607_10206073349213915_7332057604687599424_o

Can you spot Eupalinos?

But his glorious entrance made a sigh from relief going through the crowds who were glued to their seats as in good old CARP or PIRATS times. He looked exactly as we had known him so well before he passed away. Also Kikas & Marma’s warmed up bodies were hanging, as if NOTHING had happened, again in a funny frame telling us they love art.

11051999_10205925341723064_2223429232057246631_n

Even Patrick Moya succeed to fix himself a sheep pyjamas in time and for Roxelo Babenco it was easy, whatever is under it, with a top hat for sure it must be Roxelo.

DanCoyote Antonelli was still looking like the coyotedog (the collector’s item! IM me for a free copy) I inspired him with once and Josina Burgess…omg, where was Josina? Did here tombstone move or did it stay closed?

In the mean time I was in SL first at the house of Kikas & Marma to keep an eye on it during their absence in open sim and I took some nice pics from the set up they build there for me.

Snapshot_309

I almost got a heart attack when Marma appeared to check his anti-fascist security orb but I assured him everything was looking good.

Snapshot_311

Snapshot_313

After that I sit in a protest at some silly opening organised by Duna Gant. I showed her that I also could play a bored visitor doing no harm by lying there on a couch under plywood paintings.

1504450_417819868386967_3494242649687300606_o

Luckily DD called me for a life performance in her sim where we performed 2 hours together in an interaction of music and visuals but I better don’t show pics from that or they will accuse me again of only promoting myself which of course I don’t want. VIVA Eupalinos, ah no, he was dead…in a bits & sticks sort of way.

The Graveyard Is Open Again

In the rich history of virtual reality we had all kind of wannabe artists and event organisers passing by in a quick search for recognition without too much effort. After doing one or two tricks on the virtual canvas, mainly glueing some prims together or fart a texture on a virtual wall they disappeared as quick as they came as it became clear then, that when psychopath pic-shitters like Ampel Gooson and others publish every day a diarrhoea of images the interested viewer will run screaming towards the nearest mental institution. But now the dead raise from the grave as one of the event organisers, Roxelo Babenco raise from her tomb to see if she could repeat the old trick one more time, using the most boring concept from virtual world and …..copy it once more. How this works? Ask a builder for a megalomaniac environment that can host all zombie artists to warm up their old stuff. And there we see again the CARP or Pirats concept with rooms no artist would ask for, even with a knife on her throat, as if we would die for exposing our work in an egg with stripes surrounded by 40 other eggs with stripes. When these megalomaniac buildings in secondlife were constructed the chance you would meet another avatar once where reasonable possible but now in open sim, where the dead artists are kept warm in their virtual fridges, you can be sure that you have the whole space for yourself after the opening. On the other hand, to see dead avatars in their noob version from 2006 or 2007 once more can be for historians a once in a lifetime event. Will Josina Burgess have blonde flexi hair today, will Roxelo Babenco succeed to once more create her top hat she is soooooo famous for and will Eupalinos Ugajin be able to flux his toilet without dada Marmaduke Arado on his head? Or will they send the otter in for some serious plumbing? And will SaveMe Oh….no?…..really?…..OMG! Snapshot_231
