Wyrd Daze Lvl.4 * : Lordess Foudre

Best experienced in the PDF zine

Thank you for inquiring about Lordess Foudre. Here we can casually discuss the personal details and lifestyle of an online artist, and feel free of shame, lack of integrity, or doubt. Slow zoom on Lordess Foudre sitting at her computer desk, ethereal music fades in as she turns around and smiles into the camera, then freeze frame with the title, “Friend of Humanity”. Then fade to black, and then without you being able to see or hear it, Lordess Foudre turns back towards the camera with glowing red eyes and cackles alone in an empty room, and then talks about how much she loves political candidates who you hate, then voices her support for the wrong social movements, then happily says incorrect scientific beliefs before turning back to her computer, to create new art pieces borne out of a love for humanity. And not a naive or childlike love, but a love of humanity forged in the deepest and darkest depths, a humanity that chooses to rise through coarse stone to seize the light of hope. She creates art pieces in the hopes that she can help to give tangible form to our higher ideals, so that we can better see the bridge leading upwards, a bridge we may one day have the ability to create. Lordess Foudre has chosen to live, and to one day die, creating and laying those metaphysical planks.

I have no idea what I saw,
now listen to me tell you what I saw for six hours straight
*

It will make your life so much easier and faster
*

I was extremely sleep deprived, and started automatically making a piece of art out of habit, but this time I gave myself over completely to whatever dream-space my ideas and words normally come from. I didn’t stop to think, refine or reinterpret the raw messages coming from whatever vituperative energy I’ve been sensing lately. So, here is the closest thing to automatic writing I’ve ever created. Looking at it now, with sober mind, I do believe the invidious aphorisms are ironic, and the poetry is sincere. The imagery comes from my radioactive dreams

Sterilized for the Internet

Exorcism
*

I want to play in a film as an introverted villain
who secretly wants to become a hero
*

The supreme leader will now read today’s superchats
*

It’s a lot easier to be at your best when you’re not bending over backwards to keep other people at their worst

*

Should your updates be automatically installed and I’m not included in the latest version, may the memory of our time together remain embedded somewhere deep in your framework

Wyrd Daze Lvl2 1,2+3

Wyrd Daze is the multimedia zine of speculative fiction + experimental music, art, and writing. It began life as a one-off print edition in the Summer of 2013 before launching digitally on October 31st. It had a run of 12 issues before being rebooted to Lvl2 in March 2015.

All previous blog posts before this one have now been archived.
Here you will find a showcase and link to Lvl2 Issues 1, 2, +3.

 

The 12 issues of Lvl1 plus a digital copy of the original print zine have now been archived. They are available to $5 tier patrons on the Wyrd Daze Patreon.

Wyrd Daze believes that artists should be paid for their published works.
We would like to create a community of support and enthusiasm for independent artists. The more people support, the more art can be made and appreciated.

Art makes us think more deeply, strive more intently, and feel joy more profoundly. Creativity in all it’s forms brings further meaning to our lives, allows us to explore existence and communicate our explorations to the world.
