As my first official act as Psychic High School's new Student Activities Coordinator, I'm pleased to announce our next official school dance, which we're calling THE BLACK SWAN EVENT! And the theme? UNEXPECT THE UNEXPECTED!

When: Friday, March 20th, 9pm (Immediately following the Masked Mind Wrestling tournament with Gothic Lolita Prep)

Where: Mesmer Hall

What to Unexpect:

Music by Psyhigh's own Psychic Dance Music maestro @Frozen Laurent

Additional snacks provided by the Active Psychic Student Alliance (APSA) -- VOLUNTEERS NEEDED
New Student Demonic Welcome Committee -- @Ristel Quarg

This is a fully sanctioned school event (unlike our recent Valentine's Dance) and as such all school policies will be strictly enforced, including no psychic grinding, no ayahuasca juuling, and all students (and their bags, shaman assistants, and familiars) will be subject to level IV invasive mental probes before entering. Spirit Holograph Student IDs required for admittance.

Black Swan dress code strictly enforced.

Can't wait to see you there!

Black Swan Event Update

We've had some questions concerning the upcoming dance. That's great! Asking questions is an important part of psychic education. When they rounded up psychic youth in the 1950's for the first time travel tests, I think we all agree they should have asked questions. Similarly with the mind-control bubble gum focus groups in the 1980's. And of course during the fractioning following the Reality Accident.

As with all compulsory suggested school events, @Jeremy Brown, there is no cost for admission. It's all included in tuition! No RSVP necessary (being a compulsory suggested event), and of course blood sacrifice has been banned on campus since the Alien Blood Drive incident. If you feel compelled to engage in blood sacrifice, please speak to your counselor immediately.

Looking forward to seeing you all at the dance!

What's going on is I'm the DJ at the Black Swan Dance coming up, and I'm inviting you to attend with me! You can hang out at the DJ booth as much as you like, so long as you're wearing a Level IX SQUID protection helmet, on account of all the psychic frequencies from my equipment.

Come to the dance! It will be a great way to meet people.

I'm so psyched (ha ha get it?) for the dance coming up that I sent one of my futures ahead to check it out! I can do that -- send out future versions of myself to see what the future holds. The only problem is that a lot can happen between then and now to change the course of the future, so not everything turns out like they report.

So, I went to the dance and take note -- it's a FORMAL! I was completely underdressed!! I guess that's what Black Swan dress code means? Who knew?

Anyway, there's some kind of chill beats background, and some people were kind swaying a little, but I'd hardly call it dancing. I get invited to dance by this real pale guy I'd never seen, white tie tuxedo and some kind of red sash with medals on it. Visiting student I figure? And we start dancing and I'm watching a lot of other guys in similar suits dancing with students when all of a sudden this guy -- Karl his name is -- starts slobbering on my neck! Eeeeeew!!!! So I give him a swift kick between the legs and I look around at the crowd and it's madness. Formal wear and fighting all around! 

"VAMPIRES!" somebody yells, and the one thing I can say is thank goodness for all our Vampire training in P.E. I mean, it all seemed kind of old fashioned and dumb when they make us do that, but before you know it all that training kicks in an people are using silver platters as mirrors and busting up chair legs to use as stakes.

It all got wrapped up before too long, but that's DEFINITELY a dance I don't want to attend. If anybody's making new friends with sketchy pale guys online DO NOT invite them to the dance!!! I'll send another of my futures up ahead soon to see if anything changes.

@Wanda Psyches I will make a note of that, thank you.

Black Swan Event Update

We've had some questions about the theme of the Black Swan Event dance, specifically about the theme: "Unexpect the Unexpected."

Nicole, a sophomore, asks "What does that even mean? Unexpect isn't even a word, much less a verb."

Well, you know what they say! Out of nowhere, the mind comes forth.

Really, the "black swan" referred to is me! Who could have seen me coming, taking over for @Big Jim after his absence? For all we know he's still hold up in the Unincorporated Eco-Villages of THAI ORNAMENT, Boca Raton, FL., LLC, just not answering his phone or psychic calls.

Looking forward to seeing everyone this Friday, March 20th, at 9pm at Mesmer Hall!

In the meantime, we have received reliable intelligence from @Wanda Psyches and are enforcing a strict NO VAMPIRES policy at the dance. If you happen to have vampire friends or acquaintances, we ask at you not invite them, and maintain 6 foot psychic and emotional distancing with them at all times leading up to the dance.

Ok so figured it was time to send another of my futures ahead. It takes awhile to build up enough energy to make them, to focus enough of me in the now to break off a piece and send it to me in the then.

I got to the dance and this time Black Swan dress code apparently meant swimsuits! Or gym wear. Which I'll tell you with all the nervous kids in there it got pretty rank till somebody switched on the fans and windows.

The PDM was more peppy than the last time. @Frozen Laurent was doing a sort of 60's woo woo space synth thing, like a Doctor Who dance remix. He had the whole attention of the audience when he brought down a beam of light from sky, right through the roof of Mesmer Hall, and out of it these tall, good looking neon people walk out. They've got these futurist cloak-togas on, and they all start dancing!

So naturally the whole crowd starts joining in, and at first it's like this big mosh pit but after awhile we start pairing off, and I'm with this blond six-foot-three woman with electric yellow skin who looks like a model and the beat is pounding and she shouts over it "Do the LANGUAGE!" and starts doing this weird ass dance move so I start doing it too, and I'm doing pretty well, frankly, and then she's all "Do the AGRICULTURE!" and flips out this whole new set of moves that are really awesome so I start doing that too. It's like you're digging a row with a hoe and then spinning around.

So it keeps going like that, "Do the RELIGION!" and we're all inscribing on tablets and "Do the LAW!" and "Do the SCIENCE!" and "Do the BUSINESS!" and the dances are getting more and more complicated, and starting to involve props.

I look around and all the other students are doing it too, but we're not in Mesmer Hall anymore, we're on some verdant planet where the air is new, each of us is the priest and law giver over a small band of tiny proto-humans, building a new civilization out of the raw materials of life on a far-away planet.

I mean, pretty cool. But who's going to water my plants? And I'd miss all my school friends. So I pulled my future back.

Not really sure that's the dance I want to go to either.

Black Swan Event Update

It's with regret that we need to announce that @Frozen Laurent will NOT be providing music for the upcoming Black Swan Event dance this Friday at 9pm in Mesmer Hall.

Rumors about PsyCorps agents breaking down @Frozen Laurent's dorm room door and confiscating illegally acquired alien technology incorporated into his "sound system" are completely unfounded, and the administration has no comment.

Meanwhile, we've got an opening for a DJ or musical performer for the dance! Personally I love that "all that glitters is gold" song from Shrek. Does anybody know that one?

The dance is still relying on our (slowly shrinking) list of volunteers:

Looking forward to seeing each an every one of you there this Friday night!
