DEATH OF AN AVATAR

Suicide For SaveMe

Performance by Wirxli Flimflam and SaveMe Oh.
Only associate who also knows the plans: Velazquez Bonneto

The idea is simple: Wirxli will play coming months the hopeless devoted self acclaimed groupie of SaveMe Oh.
SaveMe Oh will play the disturbed famous avatar she is, flattered a little with the attention but deadly in her rejection off again another slimy follower.

The result is that the hopelessly in love avatar Wirxli Flimflam will get so desperate that he commits public suicide on Valentines day 2010. First he will give away all his inventory to the bystanders, after he will suicide and delete his SL account.

At several publications and actions this story will be brought under the attention of the SL community and on other internet platforms to create as much publicity as possible.

SaveMe Oh
Wirxli Flimflam

[13:15]  Wirxli Flimflam: here are what I think are the positive expectations/outcomes of this performance
[13:15]  Wirxli Flimflam: 1 - an expression that one will do anything for avatar love
[13:15]  Wirxli Flimflam: 2 - the idea that one can have a personal investment in an avatar to make a commitment to another (as insane as it is) meaningful...
[13:16]  Wirxli Flimflam: 3 - The idea of expressing insecurities in RL through SL..even if that means one avatar losing one's own invested "self" for the "other"
[13:16]  Wirxli Flimflam: my personal fears about the performance art:
[13:17]  Wirxli Flimflam: 1- tying too much of my RL into the performance more than there needs to be to make the above three points 

MY BLOGPOST:

Since last year I am stalked by an idiot who calls himself a performance artist but the only thing he performs is being obsessively close to me all the time and write twisted loveletters to me on his blog. http://wirxliflimflam.blogspot.com/2010/02/valentines-day-special-my-final.html

The name of this purple idiot is Wirxli Flimflam and he presents himself as one of my kind. But when you look at his work you see a sad pile of pretentious shit collected in movies that are best described as teletubbies fucked by smurfs, an endless stream of ego-tripping sadness made so foolish that he can be sure everybody clicks away after a second.

Now the freak think he can win me for his heart to do a final performance on Valentine’s day. How low can you go, when you go behind my back to the owners of CARP sim, begging them for a platform to perform. It must be after the disaster in Haiti they became week and let him do his stuff.

Well, to make sure it is really his last performance ever, I created him a nice space where I will make sure that this is really his last day in secondlife. When he is not taking care of that himself, I will. And for the one’s who don’t know, Catherine Linden, Teagan Linden and Torley Linden belong to my closed friends and they already talked with Philip to put an end to this.

So I call all machinima artists and photographers to be there sundaynight to be witness of the death of an avatar. The victim may not believe it himself completely but I make sure he will believe it soon.

When this bastard is not gone after this weekend I promise I will gangbang in public Georg Janick, DanCoyote Antonelli, Henry 125 Petrov, Nessuno Myoo, Igor Ballyhoo and Newsbab Zsigmond with Merlina Rokokokokokocoucou as dessert.

WIRXLI'S BLOGPOST:

 


Well, you have probably guessed it by now but I am soooo in love with SaveMe Oh... Ever since Caravaggio Bonetto posted a video about her, I have been totally smitten...At first, I almost saw her as competition but now I realize that she is going to places far beyond what I ever did...I wish I was her or at least with her..sigh! SaveMe Oh mezmerizes me...so much so, I am doing this final performance on Valentines Day to prove my immortal love and devotion to her and her art...Here are the event details...

Wirxli Flimflam's Final Performance...
A Tribute to SaveMe Oh...

WHEN: Valentines Day - February 14 (Sunday), 2010 - 1 PM SLT

WHERE:
DIABOLUS ARTSPACE -

Contact person:
Velazquez Bonetto.


Anyways, how did this obsession start, you might be saying to yourself?

Well, it isn't a long story at all...I became smitten quite rapidly, as is normal in Second Life's time frame. In fact, as soon as I visited her space in late 2009, I began squatting in it...

..that pic was a brief example of me squatting at SaveMe's space....but wait, there is more!

...I even found movies to watch while squatting at her solo exhibition...and as a bonus, they were movies that SHE MADE HERSELF :-) :-) :-) :-)


All of her movies were/are all GREAT! Absolutely ALL of them! :-) :-) :-) :-)


I had this crazy idea that wouldn't it be great if I could also be her...I mean..be her servant...I figured that this route would have been the easiest way to get SaveMe to like me and accept me for who I am which I am sure is as a kindred spirit! However, my path to total SLebrity enlightenment was going to embark on a totally different path once a very pleasant (yet neurosis inducing) surprise suddenly occurred before my very eyes....


...Uh oh! busted! SaveMe must have heard from others that I was squatting in her space and I guess the curiosity finally got to her..which was good news for me because deep down I wanted to be noticed and I figured that if I camped at her exhibition long enough she would eventually pop by to see what it is...or, she would show up anyways to check up on her work and I would magically be there waiting for her... Anyways, her IM to me in the screenshot suggests to me that I think she is getting the hint that I might be getting kinda immersed with her personality, kinkiness and artwork..just a little bit, sigh! At the very least, I wish she accepted my flu gift to her since it was a limited edition flu and I only transmitted it to artists that deserve only the best that I could offer them...
I thought that would impress her as she into sickness, blood, guts, puke and all that...just like meeeeeee! SaveMe! You are like me or like everything I want to be in me! Lets do things together! Lets cause mayhem together! Lets do EVERYTHING TOGETHER! SAVEMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE..

Well, since she felt the need to entertain her admirers of her show, she at least gave me (well, me and a few other groupies) some attention when she showed off her UFO-OH...



It was sublime hanging out in the UFO-Oh with SAVEME and friends...those were the days..sigh!

In the next pic, you can see my friends
Maeve Emerald and Olga Wunderlich with us by the UF-OH...Olga is so great, I totally understood what she meant now when she said that SaveMe Oh is doing now in performance art what I used to do with performance art years ago before I washed up and became an empty navel-gazing antic-clown...sigh!



Below is a great pic of Olga and myself...I am pretty sure Olga totally understands my decision to be part of SaveMe Oh's life...Olga really understands me - almost as much as I understand SaveMe...



The next pic shows Olga and I doing some heroin...If you read the IMs, you can see that SaveMe is being very nice and cordial to somebody...I sure hope it was ME!
Olga was starting to get sleepy and nod off from all the infused liquid
China White...



So after all my friends had left, I managed to stick around in hopes of being able to hang out with SaveMe Oh by myself...she showed me around her various installations...sheesh! THOSE WERE THE DAYS! THE BEST DAYS OF MY LIFE! SIGH!

SaveMe is so direct...I love her frankness! She showed me exactly what I could do to prove my love to her...I could click multiple times onto these voodoo dolls (see the pic below) that would automatically say that I Loved SaveMe Oh until I was done loving her...I clicked on mine zillions of times but I never seemed to get as many hits as her other suitors...arrgh! Being a competitive type, this activity was starting to feel like an infinite dead end..I had to find ANOTHER way to get to her...something more extreme than the clicker with the highest score was what I was focusing on...Since SaveMe is an extreme type of person, another has to do something very extreme as a performance action to hold her interest for more than a few seconds with a positive review...you will find out what I have in mind on Sunday....



So, I thought about it some more and figured I needed to do something that was a tribute to one of her ritualistic compositions..it had to be a ritual and what I did had to be REAL on some level and had to be all about HER and had to be extreme and punk enough to impress her...but, what kind of aesthetic structure should I use as the framework for my ultimate performance art action???

The answer was in one of her own compositions (of course!) While sitting amongst one of her installations, I had an idea of what to do...



...if you attend this performance on Valentines Day, you will see/feel exactly what I mean!

See you on Sunday, most likely for the LAST TIME!

THE SCRIPT

Suicide ritual script for SaveMe and Wirxli:
Valentines Day (Feb 14) - 1 PM SLT at the Diabolus...

3 - Wirxli will be summoned (suit will be worn)

5 - Wirxli mentions how others have tried to prove themselves to SaveMe  over the recent months...and Wirxli (being competitive), wants to up the ante by committing suicide for SaveMe.

7 - SaveMe arrives in her classic geisha outfit.

8 - Wirxli says to SaveMe that W plans to devote W's entire life to SaveMe etc etc...

9 - Unfazed, SaveMe challenges W to give away all partnerships and assets.

10 - W spends a long time doing just this (giving away stuff to various avatars...like a realtime will)...some time will also be spent explaining that the FB page and Ning site will be taken down and/or converted into memorial sites...

11 - SaveMe then asks for proof that W really wants to die for love.

12 - Wirxli says that he/she is willing to delete the account and and Vela will be assigned to present evidence of this after the suicide....W only offers to stop the suicide procedure only if SaveMe agrees to be W's partner.

13 - SaveMe says that W can blow him/herself up ASAP.

14 - Wirxli then walks to the chair and asks Vela to start the Second Death MP3 loop for all to hear...Wirxli offers any last words for the audience, if they request for about 10-15 minutes.

15 - Wirxli says a final devotional chant to SaveMe and blows up...

16 - Wirxli dies and suffers for a couple of minutes...SaveMe walks on the corpse and humilates it etc etc....

17 - Wirxli disappears and deletes account (takes a screenshot).

18 - Sends screenshot to Velazquez so he can present the photo-evidence. Gmail channel is available so Jeremy can be aware of what is happening from outside of SL. 

 THE PROOF:

Add that went out to Machinima artists:

Machinima artists,

This is your chance to cover the event Death Of An Avatar. Or the avatar will kill himself or I will help him to another world. No rehearsals, no second performance. He will be dead after I am done with him!
