SaveMe Oh was rezzed on 23 February 2007 and is turning 13. During these years the performer, movie-maker, and drama-queen rose to stardom with her radical, constantly evolving style that is all the time creative, inventive, and far ahead of her peers. As a true visionary SaveMe Oh is at the forefront of cultural development throughout every virtual year of her existence.
SaveMe Oh has arguably risen to become the most influential artist in modern virtual history, and is perhaps the best ever known artist. Her artistic legacy endures so much that she remains possibly the most mentioned artist on the market, with publication as “SaveMe Oh The Muse of Many Famous Painters” that regularly is in the top 10 of the best sellers list, and ongoing invitations for international film festivals.
To celebrate the 13th rezday of this unique art icon of modern virtual times two of her biggest fans HEA (Tansee) and MEA (Roxy Gellar) have prepared SaveMe Oh a party on the 23th of February, simultaneously on the HEA and MEA sims due to the expected large audiences who want to congratulate her with her achievements.
Tansee: That…. my dear sweet friend is between you and Hann! What did you do?
SaveMe Oh: Try to visit a Ultralight concert?
Tansee: You make me so mad sometimes,,,,,♥♥♥ try talking to him,,,,
SaveMe Oh: You make me so mad sometimes…you give the impression to be a free woman and in no time you are someones slave again, disturbing. And being a slave with some privileges is more important to you than being free and love your friends.
Tansee: hmmmmm interesting
SaveMe Oh: I agree, the weakness of the human specie always keep on surprising me
Tansee: Are we breaking up again?
SaveMe Oh: I never break up, on my side of the deal I never behave different or chance the rules while playing.
SaveMe Oh: Tell the HEA idiots to unban me
Thoth Jantzen: i plan to…
SaveMe Oh: good
Thoth Jantzen: At least for my show, anyway…i don’t have a lot of control over them, but you know i don’t agree with that bullshit.
SaveMe Oh: When I would know you agree with that bullshit you better hide so do your best
Thoth Jantzen: i always do what i can. you know that. i’ve helped unban you at a few places before. and what HEA did last time was disappointing, to be polite about it.
SaveMe Oh: Yes, extremly disappointing, I had high hopes but when you call a place HEA, we should have known better
Thoth Jantzen:Yeah. I’ve been unfriended by more than a few people because i’ve defended you, so…even if can’t always change things, i do try.
SaveMe Oh: Maybe more will unfriend you soon
Thoth Jantzen: Maybe.
SaveMe Oh: thats the price of love
Thoth Jantzen: i do hope if i DO get you unbanned, you give them reason to see I’m right.
SaveMe Oh: Thats a silly statement
Thoth Jantzen: figured as much as soon as i hit enter…
SaveMe Oh: as if I have to give reasons to anybody. Unconditional is the word!
It only took them some months to copy the same mistakes as the old LEA. The open hive of HEA is already shut down for SaveMe Oh if Ultralight wants to play there. Forgotten is the support for the artworld SaveMe gave and back are the old restrictions.
Roxy Gellar must be the happiest person on the grid tonight. Some days ago she asked me the following:
Roxy Gellar: So the Question is, Ultra is performing at Hannington this weekend, are you banned?
SaveMe Oh: The Hannington people are not your kind of dictatorial style. Be like them and open the world to every one. You still have time to become a good person.
Roxy was right. I was wrong!
SaveMe Oh: Do you know why I am banned?
Hannington Xeltentat: Oh hello SaveMe. Yes, there is a concert on by Ultraviolet, and she won’t play if you are here. I’ll lift it as soon as it is over. Nothing personal.
SaveMe Oh: Do you approve that she is able to exclude me? Secondlife give her derender tools when she dont want to see me.
Hannington Xeltentat: I’m a bit busy now for in depth discussion, but basically, old chap, it is my house, and like your RL house or my RL house, you are welcome here any time, and I mean that, except when I am doing something else.
SaveMe Oh: And when I do a performance in your house and on a certain day I dont want Tansee there, will you ban her?
Hannington Xeltentat: I consider each individual case on its merits.
SaveMe Oh: And will you kill someone when a friend asks you to?
Hannington Xeltentat: Different question, irrelevent here
SaveMe Oh: Did you consider to ask Ultralight to play in her own house if she wanted an exclusive party?
Hannington Xeltentat: No, because it’s my house, and I decided.to have her play in my house.. This is a private sim, and you are welcome any time, as I said. Except that I am doing something else tonight.
SaveMe Oh: Is Ultralight an old friend of you?
Hannington Xeltentat: I have no friends in SL, old or new. I judge each case on its merits
SaveMe Oh: And what merits you found in this “case”?
Hannington Xeltentat: I am letting Ultraviolet play her concert. It’s very good.
SaveMe Oh: And how many people were on her requested banlist? Only me?
Hannington Xeltentat: Not her banlist, mine. You can’t be trusted.not to disrupt things. You only have yourself to blame
SaveMe Oh: And when Trump would ask you to ban a Mexican. Hitler ask you to ban a jew or the KKK ask you to ban an african?
Hannington Xeltentat: Not an applicable simile, at all, and an insult by you to all the oppressed minorities. Unworthy of you
SaveMe Oh: You think oppressed minorities have to stay polite against their opressors?
SaveMe Oh: Do they have to humble accept the verdict?
Hannington Xeltentat: You know the answer to that one, but in this case you are not an oppressed minority. You are the one, on occasion, oppressing. And no, I do not humbly accept your verdict. This is SL, and reference to to Hitler et al is overindulgent and offensive. You should be better than that.
SaveMe Oh: I am much better than that, thats why you should be the one who should do better. You should refuse to ban people at any time.
Hannington Xeltentat: I should do what I wish to do, no more, no less. And I do. No-one dictates anything to me. That, in essence, is true anarchy.
SaveMe Oh: Tansee and Ultralight dictated to you. You obey. It has nothing to do with your own will.
Hannington Xeltentat: I obey only myself, SaveMe. I make decisions based on each case, considered carefully.. And they are my decisions, for my reasons. I do not answer to anyone, and there is no need for me to. Buy your own island, then you can do that too.
SaveMe Oh: I will never buy an island to sit there as a judge who is welcome and who has to stay out. I prefer to trust people.
Hannington Xeltentat: I trust the people I trust, and I don’t trust the people I don’t trust. I have my island as my space, and I give a little bit of it to people who want to do something productive and creative. no more, no less.. And as I said, you are welcome any time, unless I am doing something else.
SaveMe Oh: It’s difficult to try to make something wrong look like right, isn’t it?
SaveMe Oh: You know me, I am the sunshine in the house
Ultralight Alter: Sunshine can make colours fade
SaveMe Oh: The white light is lovely too
Ultralight Alter: It is
SaveMe Oh: Ultra, I came up with a great idea, I know you always want to prevent me from being close to you…
Ultralight Alter: What would that be
SaveMe Oh: So I set up a performance room on top of here
Tansee whispers: ahem, ahem
SaveMe Oh: so you can choose to perform downstairs without me bothering you. You can also choose to perform upstairs were I might bother you. Free choice.
Tansee: I think it can be a good compromise for us all
SaveMe Oh: For you, for me, for the audience. I am not the enemy but if you want to see me like that its up to you. And the advice of derender can always be given to everybody. Its just like a tv, you switch to the channel you like
Tansee: I think it is a good way to work together,,, as that is the theme here at the hive. And you know my mantra,,,,”play nice”
SaveMe Oh: And derender hippie talk is also an option!
Tansee: Save me SaveMe
SaveMe Oh: Always
Tansee: Why dont you go up and test
SaveMe Oh: we tested yesterday honey, it works
Tansee: So Hann knows what we are talking about and Ultra, ok, then you all have to trust me on this.
Ultralight Alter: I am sure SaveMe is part of Extinction Rebellion
Tansee: I think it is a great comprimise
SaveMe Oh: I am
Ultralight Alter: of course
SaveMe Oh: I suggested all methods to them, btw, this swan is not a real one, before you start to send a complaint
Tansee: Are we all ok with this collaboration of sorts ?
SaveMe Oh: To make this work I have a one time offer, when Ultra don’t want me here the first time I wont come. Its up to her, so Ultra, you decide
Ultralight Alter: You do what you want SaveMe
SaveMe Oh: But you may also join me upstairs
Tansee: I would like Ultra down here, that was the plan
SaveMe Oh: yes, but everybody is free insn’t it?
Tansee: If she wants to, everyone is free
SaveMe Oh: I even might leave with Hann
Hannington Xeltentat: ㋡
SaveMe Oh: Jealous?
Hannington Xeltentat: I hardly said a word ㋡
SaveMe Oh: you don’t have to say a word honey
Tansee: I like it when you say Honey here in the hive
Now for something completely different!!! (With Bryn, Lorin, Cica, Betty, Moya and Thotz) (All young unknown new talent)
I wanted to tell you that I am following through with the beehive
aspect that we talked about. I
do not want you to hear it from anyone but me
I found some land that is being donated using it for a central hub
type area where you can get direct
TP’s to Art locations in SL. Still
setting it up. There
are 6 hive cell hubs that will offer grants curated only by me 🙂
Doing the best i
Oh: good news for the artists
There are many
places doing the same thing
Oh: Yes, walls,
and stuff on walls
But I think I am
the only one connecting all of SL. I was thinking about your artist
Hive,,, maybe once things get going,,,it could be a good feature. One
work of art in each cube.
(the owner of the land,,, Hannington Xeltentat) offer 1000 prim for
each grant. 1, 3
or 6 months
is it so far,,,, but again,,, you know I have always thought of you
as a friend and wanted you to know.
Oh: Its great news
will see how it unfolds. Could
be a big bomb, maybe not, but I am willing to try.
to know you are not banned from this place 😀
Oh: And is the
place privat owned or donate by LL?
Private. LL blew
me off I am afraid. Back
when I was trying to change LEA I put out a message ,,, if anyone
knew of a benefactor that might donate some land. Hannington was the
only person that responded,,,
Oh: Great someone
answered the call
I did not know him so I took my time to try to get to know him,,, and
he really is devoted to the Arts in RL and in SL
Oh: Lets hope he
also don’t know
that will not matter SaveMe
Oh: (is he handsome)?
This is a fresh
project. He is
Oh: Older than
I think I am much much older but,,, in my defense I do not wear
I will introduce you, we seem to have the same ideas and coordinate
things well together,,, however this is all my idea,,,I just want his
ok since he owns the land
Oh: sounds all good
He helps me word
things eloquently. We
will open Dec. 1, have
an opening reception. Ultra
will play music. Do
you get along with her?
Oh: Ultra hates me, Bryn hates me, Cica hates me and Moya hates me.
Thotz and you love me
Oh: And Betty cant be taken serious. Ultra will refuse to play when I
I am all for playing nice together,,,,you should know that by now. I
will be happy to feature your builds here.
Oh: I always play nice
🙂 Fresh starts here,,,,
Oh: Only the nice
is not always loved
Xeltentat: Hello there. Nice avi.
Glad you can see that with one eye
Xeltentat: Oh yes. The other one’s still good. It was a unicorn.
Lucky there was only one of them.
Don’t think I am not working now!
Xeltentat: Oh, I wouldn’t dream of it. A still and quiet avi is
always a sign of much going on.
SaveMe Oh: I
guess that was the reason why I was called
Xeltentat: I don’t know. I only provide the space
Vrelder: We cry from morning to late night over LEA:((
PatriciaAnne Daviau: ahhhh
it will be ok… there are a ton of other places out there
Daark Gothly: So no
more art instillations?
PatriciaAnne Daviau: Not
through the LEA as it is now. I think LEA needs to be reorg’d and a
fresh new program emerge.
Josef K : It shouldn’t be
that hard to keep LEA running as the current LEA Committee has no
jurisdiction to shut LEA down.
According to the LEA
Bylaws there must be at least 7 members in the LEA Committee:
– 4.1.1 There will be a
maximum of eleven (11) and a minimum of seven (7) Committee Members
once the number goes below seven (7) elections will take place.
However, for more than 2
year by now there has been less than the required 7 members in the
LEA Committee. In spite of that the LEA Committee keeps making
decisions that effects the art scene and the art community in Second
And there is also a
problem with several members of the LEA Committee.
According to the LEA
Bylaws the term for a Committee member is 2 years. And a Committe
member may serve up to 2 terms:
– 5.1.5 Term for Committee
Members shall be 2 years (commencing with the ratification of these
– 5.1.6 Committee Members
may serve up to 2 terms.
However, 3 members of the
LEA Committee have by far exceeded that condition. One
Committee member has had a
seat for more than 8 continuously years by now.
Hence, every decision the
LEA Committee has made for the last many years have been a violation
of the LEA Bylaws as the committee itself is illegal according to
their own Bylaws.
The current LEA Committee
just have to step down and let a new committee take over in order to
keep LEA alive.
oh good grief Josef… give it a rest… those bylaws were changed
Josef K: PatriciaAnne …
you and the rest of the LEA Committee fucked LEA up, and now you are
trying to save your butts by closing LEA down, Just leave the
Committee and let a new take over
Vrelder: you have made a
great job Patricia:)))
Vihmakass: i think
Patricia was the only one who actually worked
Josef we never did any such thing… all we tried to do is support
the arts in SL with grants that were given to us by LL
Josef K: How come you
didn’t elect new members when the old members left LEA
PatriciaAnne Daviau: why
didn’t you come to us and offer your services?
Josef K: I did that 4
years ago and got ejected from your Facebook page and my questions to
the committee got neglected
we thought by stepping down a new and improved LEA would rise. With
all the animosity held against the old …a complete revamp was
Tansee: Riannah and I I
have an announcement to make later tonight
PatriciaAnne Daviau: be
part of the solution instead of bitching about the past
Josef K: The current LEA Committee treated LEA as their own property without regards for the art. That’s what killed LEA.
oh that is such total crap Josef
1Earthling Rang: No matter
who is on the committee there will always be those who disagree with
their decisions and even some who will abuse them over those
Josef K : It’s the truth
Patricia. Look how few members you are now. You wouldn’t let new
forces into the committee
1Earthling Rang: we all
see things differently and if you cannot be reasonable in how you say
your views there is no place for you
that’s crap too Josef. we asked several to join but they didn’t want
to give up the right to have grants by joining
Vrelder: it’s what i said,
the LEA was attacked
Josef K: You and the other
committee members killed LEA. And that will forever be your legacy
JMB Balogh: For quite a
while it was obvious to the Committee that the LEA program as such
was slowly dying. Applications for grants were way down and there
were complaints that LEA had become boring and predictable. The
committee had shrunk in numbers and giving up the right to apply for
a grant made becoming a member a non starter for many good people. We
spend months discussing it amongst ourselves and in meetings with LL.
We concluded that it was not fixable within the current framework and
that the only way forward was to step down and let a new group of
people with NEW INNOVATIVE IDEAS take it forward. Basically for LEA
version II to be started from scratch again, just as it was in 2010.
So that’s what we did. We stepped down and left it with LL. I’m sure
that LL would be happy to provide the regions again if some of you
can come up with a solid proposal for promoting the Arts in Second
Life and be willing to run it because it is takes work, a lot of
work, trust me on that. It’s a labour of love because it is not paid
work. In those years since 2010 Art in SL has changed dramatically
and will continue to do so. ” read and digest
PatriciaAnne Daviau: I
don’t buy that for one minute that my legacy is that I ran it into
the ground… so say what you want…I am very proud of the work I
did with and for LEA
Josef K : What work? The
LEA Committee turned LEA into a Freemasonry. Everything happened
behinds closed doors. A little transparency might have done the job –
just like I suggested 4 years ago.
Vrelder: Josef what
do you participate with? Did you then discus this matter in this
Josef K: I have actually
suggested names for a new Committee to Tansee who is trying to save
Vrelder: you mean
SaveMe Oh then?
Josef K: No actually not
Mario2 Helstein: LEA has
been an incredible site, it hurts that it comes to an end, the
committee has always been excellent, it is difficult to be perfect
for critics, but it will be difficult to do something similar again
Static Melody: there must
be some more to this story
Vrelder: yes SaveMe
Oh, I think who have done this for several event’s in LEA and
attacked this LEA Committee member many times at SaveMe Oh sites
Josef K: A very
special LEA Committee member (Solo Mornington didn’t like SaveMe …
so he even used me and my party to get to her. Not very flattering
for someone in the LEA Committee
Vrelder: yes at it
is allowed to destroy for many builders in LEA, just for the art of
bullying? but not at your place? ou support SaveMe Oh s kind of art?
Josef K: He was mad at
SaveMe and used me to get to her, that is an unforgivable action
Vrelder: yes then you
should know how many have been angry and sad at LEA wit SMO showing
Josef K: SaveMe has been
banned from LEA for years
otherwise LEA have been closed many years ago and she need to be
Banned even for the next Linden Endowment: otherwise it will not live
Josef K: But why discuss
SaveMe when it’s LEA and the way the LEA Committee runs it that is
Tansee: we will be
having an all new committee and there are some new people that
already have reached out to me to put their names in
Josef K: I wish I had the
time to help more, Tansee. But I am already since 11 years a board
member in the association for rhythmic music in my hometown. An
association where I have to justify in front of the annual general
meeting why I should be elected for a new term. That’s the kind of
democracy that lacked in the old LEA Committee.
Vrelder: who would
you think wanted be a member of LEA comity when it was under attack
by SaveMe Oh and her followers, maybe his followers then, you Josef?
Josef K): As I said before
… SaveMe is not the topic now and she has been banned for years so
Vrelder: Yes she is
a topic, it’s not you who decide what topic is needed here
Josef K: Well, the thread
started (not by me) about the shut down of LEA … so it kind of is
the topic … not SaveMe
