Yes, "The Shadow Court", from the future dystopian world of the Psyche Corporation is now real and has come into this plane of reality from the dream world of Psyche Chimere, the first Shadow Queen of Psyche Corporation. In her own immortal words:

"You’re correct in choosing this place

To petition for divine grace

You've always wanted too much

I can give you what you seek

But I’m no kindly sort of Queen, and

I demand to know what you would sacrifice to me?

Sacrifice to me!"

OK. Soooo what does that mean exactly? Well don't expect to be asked for a credit card number here. Instead, to become a member of the Shadow Court of Psyche Corporation you have give us something a bit more personal. Now don't run off so fast. It won't cost any fingers or toes, not generally anyway. A poem, a bit of fan fiction, a sketch of angelbots, a photo of yourself cosplaying a creature from the Psyche Corporation World. What is even more important is that you spread the word about Psyche Corporation' s wonderful music, fascinatingly bizarre lyrics, helping advertise "Scheduled Indoctrinations" (aka concerts and performance) and directly contribute to spreading the Empire of the Shadow Queen throughout this time-space continuum through internet traffic, awakening of the populace through physical medium such as flyers and sidewalk chalk messages, and especially through direct word of mouth communications!

For more information on joining this International Fan Club and levels of membership (which really do increase your access to staff, dancers, and band members) check out the static page post in the right margin labeled Shadow Court Nobles, Knights, and Gentry

The Shadow Queen Rocks the House at Ikkicon VII





Psyche Chimere, front woman for Psyche Corporation, performed as the headliner musical performance at Ikkicon VII this last Saturday.   Earlier in the day she led and taught a "Learn to POI Meetup" group on two occasions and gave an interactive lecture on the current real science and state of the art involving connecting the human brain directly or indirectly to computer mainframe operations.

The concert was not well advertised and many attendees actually thought it was a speaking event for some new anime they were unfamiliar with, but when Psyche Chimere's incredible voice began pouring out into the hallway from the concert stage, people began flowing in to see where this nectar of the Gods (or Shadow Queen in this case) was coming from.  Even some of the other musical performers and professional musicians attending the convention wandered in and appeared to be enjoying the concert immensely.

As this was the first time Psyche Corporation was presented in this part of the country, many guests were surprised and puzzled at first, but then became intensely interested and began wandering over to the merchandising table (which this writer was manning) to buy every album they could get their hands on.  After the concert, they got albums autographed and expressed their appreciation to Psyche for the performance, but she had to leave rather quickly due to a VIP Pass only meet and Greet being scheduled immediately afterwards.

Those who did not have time to get autographs were assisted with that either just before or just after the VIP Meet and Greet.  The fans then lined up to get their picture taken with the "Shadow Queen" and I was more than happy to learn and use whatever I-phone , camera , or other device they carried so as to give them a few photos with the artist that they could take home with them.  They seemed to be really enjoying this and were so reluctant to disperse that, in order to avoid a fire hazard blocking the hall, the con staff had to move this informal "Photo Op" group to a different location where Ms. Chimere continued to answer their questions, discuss future possibilities (most wanted her to perform at conventions in their home area or state) and finally ended with hugs all round before dispersing.

I think it is safe to say, she managed to build a new, diverse and loyal following among Ikkicon VII anime convention attendees from many different states.

Even stranger quotes from the Shadow Queen



It is Tuesday, and I am behind on preparations for the apocalypse. The thing is, having been a creature of darkness for centuries without having gone to any of the apocalypse drills, I'm just not feeling up to it. You people have never appreciated the work that goes into creating an apocalypse. We have to go out there in the freezing cold and jump up and down for hours, smoking two packs of cigarettes in each mouth at the same time, every Saturday, so that your final days can be that much more polluted. Frankly, it's disheartening to be expected to rain fire and brimstone down on Friday when no one has written a single "Hey I noticed you were really hurting the environment the other day when you were dragging that gangrenous section of road kill into the water supply. I want you to know I saw that, and it will be remembered with trepidation and horror." No. You expect apocalypses to just fly out of my butt with absolutely no effort. And now you want the world destroyed by Friday. I have a day job you know. I have a life. I don't just sit around for millennia planning the fine details of your apocalypse as if I have nothing else to do. Generation Me, indeed. Everything has to be big bad and THIS week. And if even one of you is left alive on Saturday, I'm going to get an earful from my supervisor. Freaking impossible demands, you humans have.

The "Amazing Dancing and Contorting Songbird"



This is a good video showing how the Sahdow Queen uses hypnotic dance to accentuate her heart breakingly beautiful voice.  The video is from a performance at the Steampunk World's Fair 2012.  There are inexplicable technical problems at one point in sound video sync on Youtube, but it still works very well for the intended purpose.    "neat footage of Crime from YuenGuon"

The Geeky Kink Event -Geekdom Gone Wild!!!



OK, so you may be thinking this can't be what it appears to be.  Wrong!  I met a lovely, intelligent, young woman at the Steampunk World's fair who wanted to pet my crew's mascot, a lifelike plushy toy octopus that goes by the monikker "Kraky" the mutant Kraken or his more formal title Cuthulu von Kraken III     She started telling me about her experience with the tentacle bondage chair at this event mentioned above.  Let's just say... by the time she finished describing being publicly triple penetrated by realistic tentacles, she looked up and said, I guess I should hand him back now.  True story, but so far as I know, the Shadow Queen mostly just sings and dances at this event.  Oh that, and she sometimes gives a science talk... on the "physiology of Kink" I believe.

Just sent out the Psyche Corp. newsletter to our mailing list. Would like to say again how wonderful it is to have Charles Quinn as our newsletter editor!









While we're at it, I wanted to thank Radha and Ramon for getting us some exposure on a video for the Versailles Philharmonic Quintet! I wish I'd been on top of mentioning this more earlier. Both of them have been so supportive of Psyche Corp. and I'm grateful. Ramon also runs http://theshadowcourtofpsychecorporation.blogspot.com/

Just like that one about Big Bird I had when I was 3 years old--uh, never mind). Thank you so much for your support and thank you so much for spreading the word of our music!!

Gateways to Magonia

Take a look at this, a film, by Aethyric Productions, that has our Shadow Queen as a supporting actress.

It's strange enough to really be interesting!

Personal Revelations From the Shadow Queen

New song, not yet mastered. Spread it if you like it!

Recent revelations from Psyche Chimere:

More personally: I feel I should explain to you something about where I am, and the real feelings that tied into this song. My mother came to the U.S. with $50 in her pocket and worked her whole life, raising me alone, after my father left when I was five. I grew up with a strong, smart, extremely hard-working woman as my role model. She gave up so much of her own ambitions hoping her daughter would achieve more one day. She came from a country where her class was hated by the ruling party and many of our family were beaten by police or simply disappeared. We could not stay innocent and stand by, hoping for a white knight to save us.

I've been working on Psyche Corporation since 2005 and performing since 2007, and many of you have wondered what else I do. I have been in a graduate program for almost 3 years and haven't stopped performing or working on music in that time. You know. You've seen my shows, you know they're still happening. In China, my mother was forbidden from participating in art and music for fear of it seeming too Western and facing more persecution from the police. An entire generation lived in fear of their own dreams. My mother hoped I could go on to follow my dreams when she had to give hers up to take care of me.

I still remember my father telling me in high school that I should be a secretary, and that ambitious women cannot be happy, because men will not like them. I have nothing against secretaries, but at the time I wanted to do music and build replacement body parts. That was too ambitious, he thought. Even now, there are still men and boys who obliquely imply to me that they would prefer a girl with simpler dreams and less ambition. But I believe there is happiness out there for hard-working women, and I believe you shouldn't have to be ashamed of suffering in your past or apologize for your ambition. There are thousands of us out there, and we will be loved by the people who are not afraid of a life less simple.
