Mercury Mad

Mercury Mad Polymath, & Bohemian DIY Musician / Artist. Google Mercury Mad you'll find the rest. Polymath artist, DAK (Dirty Art Kid), guitarist, songwriter, composer, makeup artist, weirdo, & social moth brings the best of all his skills to fans & fellow creative beings.

Known mainly for his time fronting the Glam Rock bands Vibralux as well as Mercury Mad & The Plastic Bitches, Mercury AKA MERQ is currently incorporating all that he has learned since his days of Music Theater to his more recent nights of Rock n Roll debauchery in one full-bodied experience. Neither the theatrics or musicality of the Mercury Mad show should come as any surprise to those who know his history. The young singer/guitarist who played the Plant in "Little Shop of Horrors" in high school went on to study graphic design and Music Comp at KSU while playing guitar for productions such as "Hair" and "Bye Bye Birdie". Mad spent his off time teaching guitar for KSU's continuing education program and moonlighting in tenor roles such as Jack in Sondheim's "Into the Woods" and Henrik in "A Little Night Music". His love of performance and the stage would cause him to transfer to The University of Kansas and choose his final major in Theatre & Film. Theatre would be the melting pot for Mad and his juggling various art forms. It was here he caught his musical tour bug playing guitar for th KU production of "School House Rock Live". Mercury Mad continued to develop his artistic repertoire when he became the make-up artist for a University production of Vaclav Havel's "Temptation", a job that required precision and creativity in the delicate art that would come to mean so much to his on-stage persona. When Mad created Vibralux in 2001, he combined all the things he had learned: the acting, the singing, the make-up and not to mention the various bands he had been in since his teens. He made himself into the sarcastic Messianic figure audiences came to know and love using all his talents. In 2003 Vibralux was featured on the cover of Rock Kansas.Com and stole KC Pitch Weekly's award for Best Drag Show. In 2004 the group was nominated for The Pitch Best live Performance. In the spring of 2006 Merc accepted the NYC Fresh Fruits award for best live performance on behalf of Vibralux in support of trans rights awareness. While working with Vibralux he opened for acts such as Black Pool Lights, Straylight run, Venus De Mars, The Genitorturers, Attrition, Shiny Toy Guns, and Bitch & Animal. 2010-2012 Mercury Mad continued to persevere and continued work in all his beloved art forms as singer/songwriter, makeup artist, DJ / Host & as an outlet for his prolific writing, design talent, and desire to entertain. 2012-2013 While continuing with tours he sometimes backs Minneapolis group, APOX on Bass and Guitar. Mercury is also known as "The Barker / Voice /Public Speaker" and one of the many touring musical artists for The Revolution Circus Tour. 2013 CURRENT NEWS: Mad is currently working on a grenade of Music & Art. A new Plastic Bitches album "Dance of The Doll" is set to be released. This along with his 2013 folk/pop album and composition/burlesque collaboration for Kansas City Fringe Fest titled "The Next Level of Being" are tentatively scheduled for release in 2013. Look forward to a long tour in 2014 as Mad continues with the gypsy pirate show known as The Revolution Circus and his artistic collaborators Ab5urdum form their own traveling chapter known as Multi-Nax (Cavalcade of Subversions).

"It can't rain all the time"
I'm in retrograde and this, other than my Beltane Birthday is Holiday.
So here's some Devils Night introspection.

In an interview just prior to his death, Lee quoted a passage from Paul Bowles' book The Sheltering Sky that he had chosen for his wedding invitations; it is now inscribed on his tombstone:

Because we don't know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well.

And yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, an afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you can't even conceive of your life without it?

Perhaps four, or five times more? Perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless...

Marilyn Manson - The Love Song Lyrics

If one is trained and argues for ownership rights and conceal and carry where the are they when their fellow citizens are being killed?

I'm not advocating here,
I'm making a point that ownership for protection is pointless if the owner refuses or simply can't protect anyone.

The result is willful refusal to use for the sole purpose of having.
It's really starting to look like a hoarding disorder.

Can't go to an open art festival, can't go to a mall, can't even go to a Wal-Mart to buy a pair of shorts and a Tap-Out muscle shirt.

Sorry but Marylin Manson was never to blame.
In fact I'm not going to sh*t on anything he had to say about it.

Feel free to burn me in the comments if you like.
This is seriously disheartening, scary, and sad.

I'm frightened to death and sad for my friends in Texas, in KC, in the art scene. Anywhere there's a public gathering.
What the f**k people!?
How much do you love your guns?

We need to get our sh*t together, now!

BREAKING NEWS!! #Illuminati No Longer Using #Chemtrails!
Scientists say "Frogs are already gay."

MESSAGE FROM #VIBRALUX ILLUMINATI

NO LONGER USING #CHEMTRAILS!
#Chemtrail #conspiracy is an aged remnant epistemology that we used to keep people inside staring at their television sets and cell phones. Now that we have achieved this we're no longer using that conspiracy anymore.
We at the #Illuminati have moved on to promoting fear of artificial intelligence so that we can weed out the rest of the strict theocrats among you and impregnate them with our lizard spawn. Since they don't believe in #abortion there will be no stopping us.

PREPARE YOURSELF FOR WORLD DOMINATION.
WE ARE VIBRALUX THE VIBRANT LIGHT HAND OF THE ILLUMINATI.
WE HAVE ALREADY TURNED YOUR FROGS GAY.

RESIST, AND YOU WILL BE NEXT.

Knocking sound on door. Door opens revealing two MDAW's, Two MGW's, a Drummer, and ASGNC. (Two Men Dressed As Women, Two Miss Gendered Women, a Drummer, and Some Guy Named Craig)
The Bald one talks. The black haired one bobs their head quietly.
The Drummer beats on bongos while the MGWs play tambourines and kazoos and Craig dances showing off his shirt while some white bearded weirdo in glasses takes pictures.
"Hello there! Hope you're having a splendid afternoon?
May we take this moment to share a little bit with you about our personal relationship with #vibralux?"

If we didn't save the world how would anyone make it to our next event?

If we didn't save the world how would anyone make it to our next event?

Hurricanes aren't just part of the apocalypse ... they signal the apocalypse.

Hurricane = apocalypse.
Earthquake = apocalypse.
Weird moon thing = Apocalypse.

Disney Mouse Club child turns 20 something and poses in their underwear with strap on = Apocalypse.

That's why #vibralux always has an event within a month after an earthquake, hurricane, moon thing, or lewd Mouse club anomaly.
Otherwise, the world would just end.

If something signals the Apocalypse ... look for the next #vibralux event.

If you appreciate this then please check in at #Vibralux and give us a like!

It makes us happy to know our efforts serve those who celebrate with us in saving the world.

Anecdotal Evidence: Definition & Examples - Video & Lesson Transcript | Study.com

ALL POLITICAL F**KING MEMES SHOULD CITE SOURCES:

One thing is for sure ... if we are going to present any assertions or arguments for our case against our chosen enemy at the very least we should display some modicum or bare minimum of any education we happen to have.

We can all can do better than this.

We should honor our Highschool English teachers by citing our sources.

Otherwise, we malign our point.
The more wrong we are the less anyone trusts our opinions. The more idiotic click bait memes we post the more someone may read US and think... "I see the point but my friend is a complete idiot."

So
We cite our sources.

Unless it's made obvious they are just opinions.

We should cite our sources.

Otherwise we are as much liars and sham artists as any politician or News Source who makes blanket assertions and knows nothing about science, medicine, facts, what actually was said or done, or how any logical thought even works.

They are using anecdotal evidence which is regarded as opinion and nothing more.

Now class ... please pay attention. ...........

FOR EXAMPLE:

"Anecdotes are short stories told to illustrate a point or support a claim. ... There is a big and distinct difference between anecdotal evidence and scientific evidence, or proof based on findings from systematic observation, measurement, and experimentation."

(With an online footnote. Like this)
Feb 17, 2016
https://study.com/academy/lesson/anecdotal-evidence-definition-examples.html

If our favorite politician, writer, or posting friend would simply ....

Cite their sources.

Perhaps they wouldn't be called a liar and have people calling them an idiot all the time.

If they don't site their sources the reason why .... is because they either
A . Know they are wrong and are willfully deceiving people. or
B. They're a damn idiot who doesn't know what they are talking about or

C. All of these above.

So that's why we should cite ...our .... sources.
Or leave a foot note or indicator that it is our opinion or personal experience.

Otherwise it's not news of any kind.
It's a lie. We should avoid supporting the propagation of deception.
We should site our sources.

There's actually nothing missing from you or who you are. Perhaps there are truths you have yet to find . Anyone who tells you otherwise is either a liar, misled, or a thief.

My Beloved Acolyte:

As we venture together into uncharted waters. We must keep our wits between us and do our best to keep the sails full of wind, our bodies with provision, and build the best ship we can.

I consider and reconsider everything I can remember you have ever said to me to the sane degree as I listen to these songs.
Over and over and over.

I am and will always retain, to the best of my ability, the knowledge that reconsideration, change, and action,however small, is our inevitable powerful creative force between us.

01/02/2018

We really only ever travel in circles.

THERE ARE TIMES: By Mercury Mad
When the driver needs a ride home from the bar. When the massage therapist needs her back and shoulders rubbed. When the physiologist needs exercise. When the bartender needs a drink and someone to listen to them ramble nonsensically. When the Tattoo artist needs to commemorate their own history. When the birds need you to sing to remind them that spring is coming. When the nurse needs bed rest, sweet words, and medication. When the dog needs you to sit and wait for the reward on your nose. When the kitties need to watch you be curious and enjoy a crumpled piece of paper. When a mother needs someone to make her a dinner, take care of her owies, and get her out of the house to play. It is the place of the entertainer and the sage to provide this. Even if they are simply the voice to say "It's okay to treat yourself well when no one will". This is why you are here with me. That, my sweet friend, is why I am here also.

Let not your faith be shaken.

Never underestimate the power of an ancient fire breathing creature once thought to be extinct.

We have good songs, catchy hooks, good players, good singers, and a vision.

I could record a f**king demo on a Sony Discman right now and it would still kick the sh*t out of what's currently on radio and more than half of the scene.

I, for the first time in a long long time and through many miles of tour and travels have ultimate faith in my band.

Asmo, Ken, Simone, Nichole, you are my Acolytes.

You are the light, the only church that gives me hope for this project.

You light the way for me every rehearsal, conversation, and show. We are a coven bound by our comradery, our humor, your loyalty, our combined beliefs, and out Art.

We don't even need the recording gear to kick ass.

The talent is there.
Now we have to make it known.

Sincerely,
Your Cunt
Mercury Mad
