Trina: The Plot

It was then I realized Roy had murdered his first wife and cared
nothing for his son, Little Jimmy.

I strolled with little Jimmy to the New Haven Green and asked if
he wanted a new Mommy.

“N-Not if Daddy kills her!” he replied.

It was then I thought of cigarettes and contrived a plan.

I married Roy and slowly introduced him to cigarettes.

He smoked a carton a day by our first anniversary.

One day, twenty years later, Little Jimmy returned from Yale.

Roy wheezed as I lit his cigarette.

“Trina!” Roy gasped, “You whore!”

“Shut-up,” I snapped. “Here! I’ll break off the filter!”

“Muthuh!” cried Jimmy, “Leave Fathuh alone or I’ll report you to the Surgeon General!”

“You and what lobby?” I sneered.

However, I was nervous and hastily swallowed the lit evidence.

I asked Jimmy what he had learned at Yale that day.

“Schematics,” he replied.

“Liar…” I grinned. “You were cruising the men’s room in the library.  I slipped into one of your Father’s jackets and wore his aftershave.

Jack and Belinda: Ascension

Jack and Belinda: Ascension, is a short video that I made for the Season Close of Kendall Person’s “A Star is Born.”

Ascension One
Jack and Belinda was an ongoing narrative fashioned by Kendall.

I was first introduced to them while playing #TAG.

The two avatars in these images are representations of two of my alternates, Mateo and Sara.

The making of this video represents progress because the alternates that use Second Life learned to collaborate with each other.

Ascension Two

Mateo, represented by the African-American avatar, took the lead.

His video deviated a bit from Kendall’s story line.

In Kendall’s version (if I recall correctly, and there is a 10% chance that I do) Jack and Belinda have never met and Jack dies before they do.

Ascension Three

The thought of separating Jack and Belinda horrified Mateo.

As Mateo imagined it, Jack and Belinda are both dead, but Belinda doesn’t know that she’s dead.

Jack comes down to take her up with him in a dance of ascension.
