Rhexisnet

In the hope of reigniting debate and discussion, The Rhexis has formed a LiveJournal community, designed to operate in place of the failed discussion board that was implemented in summer 2005.

This community will be open to anyone who wishes to join, and everyone will have the right to comment and discuss all topics posted there. Posting will be limited to writers we already know, and anyone who applies to us in order that they may be vetted for vague literary competence.

The Rhexis main site will remain in operation as a hub, and for the posting of longer articles and music, whilst The Rhexis LJ community will exist for extended topical discussion, stub articles and link-posts, and introduction of new writers and artists.

We have further plans to propagate a Rhexis presence on all major online communities, including MySpace, Bebe, Orkut, &c. We may even have a Rhexis avatar wandering around Habbo Hotel, and inviting other users to "FUCK THE POPE" and "RAZE THE MONARCHY". We'll see.

The Rhexis on LJ.

I came to realise
I'm sulphur in your eyes
Struck off against sunlit skies
I came to realise

When the moon bursts
Just run away
When the tide strikes
Cut yourself astray

Trusting sparks to an unlit sea
Risking loss of my capacity
Flick'ring flashes sputter falt'ringly
Trusting sparks to an unlit sea

When the welt spurts
Let the tether fray
When the storm hits
Cut yourself astray

I'm volunt'ry jetsam
And I'm all at sea
I'm a bright spark
Don't drown me out

I'm the shards in your palm
Rub me off and be free
I'm strangeness and charm
Hear me out

When the storm hits


Now listen.

Coitus Interruptus

Can you all hear me? Good. Sit down. Stop masturbating in the back row. I said stop, not accelerate! You there! If I see that existential horror once more this period I shall have to -- SHUT UP ALL OF YOU.

Due to the geographical relocation of a number of "prominent" Rhexis personages, posting frequency may suffer from brief interrup--STOP SETTING FIRE TO ROBERT KILROY SI--no, no, do carry on. I'll call the ferret sharpener. DAGMAR!
