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!

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.

from the upcoming and as yet unnamed 4th Psyche Corporation album. Lyrics: I don't let myself be touched I shape my body like a lock to keep ...
