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!

Psyche Corp Street Team

Shadow Queen:  Just wanted to say, Ramon of Psyche Corp.'s Texas street team is amazing. I am incredibly lucky to have his support.

Doyaun Raisuli De Valda-Martinez ‎:blink: Street team. Explain this concept?
January 29 at 7:16pm · Like

Ramon Leon Del Mar The term "Street Team" as I understand it, originally referred to a group of fan-based volunteers that got out on the street promoting their favorite band, posting fliers, and telling people how great the show will be to drum up support. These days many go further in terms of looking for and even arranging venues like a promoter. A few may even write and publish publicity articles and look for new ways to use the internet and journalism to promote their favorite band, but this is more rare. I and my team (a local steampunk performance art troupe in Texas called Kali's Hourglass) provide all of those services in addition to the traditional face to face promotion at events, but we usually hand out business cards with a very dramatic photo of Psyche Chimere and contact info for the bands various websites. We help other bands as well in many ways, but Psyche Corporation is the only one we directly support as a full service official street team.

Fun With Science and Misunderstood Words

Facebook conversations below related to a Psyche Corps. transmission from the Shadow Queen to her minions:

This is what I get for writing "screw holes" in an email about connecting a projector to a laptop @WickedFaire this weekend: "The screw holes are only there for extra security, especially when it'd be a long-term hookup". Also, it seems Psyche Corp. is not only performing Fri-Sun but science talks....

Fan Art Sketch of Shadow Queen and Angelbots

This is just a quick sketch of possible Angelbot cosplay designs with a sketch of Genevieve in the center taken from one of my favorite scenes from the Music Video "OH".  The dancers are Order of the Rose Angelbot (flower petals growing out of face, wrists, and ankles) on the left and an Order of the Horn Angelbot (steampunk gear operated wings version) on the right.  You can click the picture to get it to enlarge.  Once again this was just a very quick pencil sketch, but I'm showing you the kind of creative process that goes into designing and debating designs for shows, LARPs, etc.

Psyche Corp Music Successfully Used as a Drug!

Today I was advised by my dentist that my root canal was likely to be unusually painful as the antibiotics had not fully addressed the inflammation of the gums prior to the procedure and, as such, the Novocaine was likely to be somewhat less effective.  I told him that if he could put a bite guard between my molars on the other side, so that I did not relax so much I closes the teeth on him while he was working, (or bite him by mistake) I could use deep trance hypnosis to block the pain and not need to delay the procedure.  He knew I could do this as I had used it so effectively in his office in the past that his biggest problem was me getting too relaxed and shutting my mouth while he was working.  He agreed to use a soft bite guard and try it.

Now you may not believe this, but I started listening to my favorite Psyche Corporation album, just before starting the self hypnosis, then got so into the music and the sound of our Shadow Queen's sweet voice and the singing that I forgot about everything, including the root canal.  They occasionally prompted me to get me to pull out the earphones and ask me something, or to get me to re-position something, but otherwise I was pretty much off in another realm throughout the procedure!   This is actually a true story, believe it or not.  Feel free to e-mail me if you want more details.

Disclaimer:  Psyche Corporation in no way suggests it's music is an FDA approved replacement for more orthodox pain medications, nor does it assume any responsibility for any accidents that should happen if the listener get too zoned out to our music to know what they are doing.  Also, it is already known that different test subjects react differently to different music, albums or songs, so one should not expect similar results in all cases.  Any legal inquiries should be directed to the Psyche Corporation Offices in New Eden in the year 2660 AD.  Thank you.

Cover of Still Alive

From the desk of the Shadow Queen:

started making a cover of "still alive" for kicks. do you know what song I'm talking about? are you excited? are you horrified? isn't that really the same thing anyway?

Okay guys. I spent my whole afternoon doing this. If someone hasn't sent this to Mr. Coulton by the end of the year, I will take it to mean he and I will never sing this song together live. Regardless, I hope you enjoy this ^_^:

Psyche Corporation-Conspiracy or Just Good PR?

 While we cannot officially comment upon these rumors about Psyche Corp.'s 
existence in the 21st century beyond our capacity as a minor branch of the time displaced PR department, this "fan site" does seem to be a good place to plot Psyche Corp. shenanigans such as group invasions of Psyche Corp. shows where you wear funny hats and throw panties at Gen. Or something like that.

Speaking of which, for my show April 1st at DROM in NYC, I would love nothing more than to be able to say "And then during my performance of 'Wonderland' two different fans wearing MOCK TURTLE signs ran up and staged their own deaths..."

One Eyed Doll - Possible Allies???


Admiral Ramon Leon del Mar and Vice Admiral Radha Narasimhan recently made a leader's recon to look over some local talent that might just help us in our new "War Against Normalcy"

While at a local drinking establishment by the unlikely name of "Trees" we ran into just the sort of people we were looking for!  The other contacts we had gone to see were forgotten in a flash when who did we behold on stage, but One Eyed Doll!  Kimberly Freeman, the beautiful, the talented, the absolute Queen of Weird, and her beloved vampire, Junior, (apparently reconstituted after that little accident at the sunny picnic) were absolutely rockin' the house!

An actual quote from a brand new fan I met, that had no idea what he was in for with these two said, and I quote:  "It's great.  It's kind of like Kid Rock meets Rob Zombie!  It's just so wrong!  It's so disturbing I won't be able to sleep tonight, but it's absolutely awesome!"

Yep...that's what he said alright. I would swear to this in front of a panel of True Seeing Angelbots, really!

To Serve the Queen We Love

I woke just before dawn to the sound of a mighty storm.

First I gave a kiss to my mate, then a new thought was born.

Is my beloved Shadow Queen still awake in the night?

Did she only work on creations with no rest in sight? 

I knew she was weary from all of her trials.

Dissecting new specimens and arranging the vials.

My transceiver implants received messages that suggested fatigue,

So I sent the new Dragonbot prototype, her fatigue to relieve!

It reported back with success in the energy delivery.

The quantity needed could not be contained in a mere energy cell sleeve.

I hoped the Lightning it absorbed flying through the storm so long,

Did not make the energy pattern nervous or the delivery too strong. 

Still the storm was so intensely beautiful, I was glad it could be shared,

That even in her dark lab, she could receive it's glory unspared.

I had felt a lightning burst forming and sent the bot to collect it's power.

He was unaccustomed to this energy type, but bravely flew towards the shower.

An unexpected side effect caused interesting mutations to his form.

I hope the Shadow Queen was not disturbed by the change in Dragonbot norms.

I hoped she would eventually find time to rest and close her eyes,

But then that shocking delivery may have been a bit of a surprise.

The energy was much needed and thus sent, for such are her minion's ways.

In fact, so much power may actually have her charged up for days.

Just the same, I hope she knows that it was sent with devotion from above.

As a minion of the Shadow Queen, there is no greater honor than to serve the queen we love.

Oooops! The Secret's Out-New Fan Site Goes Live!

Either in a fit of, well something or other, or due to excessive Voodoo Jellybean intoxication (her cybernetic systems can't handle alcohol)  our beloved and much revered Shadow Queen just accidentally???announced to the world that this Official Shadow Court exists and is open for recruitment.

Was this really an accident, or another of her plans to plant subliminal messages in the reader?

You be the judge:

"Holy crap, it seems some people suspect conspiracy behind our claim of being merely a fictional dream corpor--um. "

They Are Talking About Us! (Whoever "they" are)

Fresh from the desk of the Shadow Queen via Facebook:

How is it that 673 people are 'talking about' Psyche Corp., according to FB? Who are you, where did you come from, and WHAT ARE YOU SAYING??? And for the record I am still refusing to comment on the time I sent you those texts about how much I love you and voodoo jellybeans at 4am. So if you're still talking about that, just know that is totally not what I'm normally like.

The First Volley is Fired!

It appears that the minions and Legions of The Shadow Court have launched the first volley in their war against normalcy to awaken the sleepwalkers of the world to the Dreams and Nightmares of Psyche Corporation. This apparently was done, not with plasma rifles, but humble sidewalk chalk outside a Walmart!

One note of caution to our ever growing and enthusiastic Minions and Legionnaires, you might want to check local tagging laws to avoid any un-necessary conflict with the local constabularies.  Sidewalk chalk on sidewalks does not normally lead to much more than occasional irritated language, but it might be worth checking first about your area.  This war against "Normalcy" is not yet in need of any true martyrs just yet.

Send us photos though.  We will be more than happy to post them here and credit the source!

New Remix of Trent Razor Release

From the Desk of the Shadow Queen:  

I am told that Trent Reznor approved of a remix of one of his songs that I worked on during my radio production internship in college. Said song includes me singing bizarrely and obsessively about my hand toward the end. Yup.

Looking For a Few Good Mortals

Message direct from the desk of the Shadow Queen:  

So, who wants to be a junior tour manager for Psyche Corp. at some point in the future? Travel with us and have adventures for a few days to a week, arrange stuff like bookings and publicist wrangling, and have a lot of fun and useful tourmanager experience. Not paid, because we are poor, but I can attempt to give you a night with the hot cellist. I might be killed by his girlfriend and/or arrested for pimping, but that's the kind of risk I'm willing to take to entertain you for being our tour manager. Email
