This, tortured artistes, is my modest proposal--that we form a society against these Dark Ages, be the only illumination in a world of banality and gloom, and suffer as the martyrs of the world that does not understand us!
Our only request! that all you say, solemn or ludicrous, be in the language of the tortured poseur artiste! Of course, whatever language that be (French is also desirable et plus beau qu'anglais) or whatever that style be is up to your creativity.
Show us your light! Show us the torturedartists suffering and laboring in the depths of your souls!
O, O, O, totus ardeo! Burn with passion for Art!
The Tortured Artists Society, where one can indulge in bad metaphors, self-absorption, and satire. Writers and artists Anyone welcome.
