Nebula's creation of weirdism

Personal thoughts on the
created movement of Weirdism

by Richard Jackson aka Nebula

Introduction to Weirdism

Well within the realm's of the art world we have been subjected to many strange and unusual artworks, mainly from the works of the surrealist artists who tried to channel and tap into the subconscious mind. But I personally see a huge problem with the surrealist philosophy mainly due to the fact that it is about the personal twisted perceptions of the real, and I think that imagination will find some limitations to this. Is surrealism the furthest we can venture with its vagueness and connections with delusion and madness. I believe that we can move further out than that but its a dangerous journey and that the very idea could end up shredding down the walls of this dimensional world. I do think however that surrealism was a great start towards something very powerful that could make or break the material world and possibly the inner world for many people.

So what would Weirdism be, I feel you will be asking but I want to keep that open for now. The most important idea is that it will only make use of previous works that could be used for the analysis of weird/Weirdism.

The core of Weirdism is that it should be about creating something weird from methods of day dream, sleep, paranoiac-critical method (fear, anxiety, mania, paranoia etc), disciplined hallucination without it being drug induced, accidental, scientific madness, abnormal and other strange and weird methods.

The most single important thing is to not use any drugs to find weirdness if possible but if one wants to dabble in drug induced creativity then its up to the person, but I do not believe that this can achieve to a higher level and think its in the artists best interest to be pure of mind.

To achieve a style of weird would be contradictory as weird can obscure the discipline of technique and process but if anyone would try to find anything near a weirdistic style I would strongly encourage it as to be proven wrong. To create a weirdistic art peace one can use a fusion of techniques, styles and movements to stir up the reaction but as long as it creates the whole movement of weirdism so to fade away the movements used.

What can weirdism achieve ?

I really hope that it can set new concepts to design and art through the induction of weird into powerful and bewildering aesthetics. I hope to see developments in the manufacturing of goods that fuse together all that is unreal and out of this world for example gadgets and gizmo's that put emphasis on the unusual to look over. I want weirdism to open up our eyes to new and beautiful surrounding that bewilder our sensors and that ask us to think about what we look upon.

I also want to see more of a bond between art and science where the elemental and cosmic work with or against each other to provide new and almost spell binding results. I really think that this world as become a solid synthetic gloomy dimension that needs to be lifted if only to arouse the mind to a voyage of personal perception and excitement to mystery.

Why should we live with Weirdism ?

We do actually live with it now to a certain degree, We have console and computer games that take us into other worlds that at times can blow our minds to new dimensions of eye candy graphics in which we escape. The animation, illustration and development of such things are for me a much needed provision but to a certain degree Weirdism could bring it into the gallery, the street etc. It would help the young of today connect to creativity that involves more than conceptual dribble and theory in which the visual sensor's do the talking.

What can you or I do ?

Well we can start by going about studying weird, thinking of new things to rip open the walls of normality, we can imagine things that don't exist and find an urge to create them. Weird is different to everyone and to embrace weird is the first step. Even being a person who don't fit into this life is a great role to play, you may think different to other people and can add your thoughts on Weirdism. Personally I think weird can be thought of as a disturbance and even add controversy on so much of life that it is dying to tackle authority and rule.

I think you have just made this up ?

I have and that's what weirdism is all about, making things up out of thin air, something new and unbelievable, Who is to say that what I have said is wrong and maybe because they have been heavily programmed by society to behave in a so called real and normal fashion that the previous writing would be considered a load of excrement then I pity that person for they are at a lower level of sensitivity. And would most probably overlook how weird can offer some extraordinary sensations.


There is none so go and find out for yourself


New thoughts and theory's


Most of my life I have lived in a world of my own really and I've never really been interested in the so called real world. I guess I see the other world as a prison in which people enter into, a kind of man made synthetic scape where instinct and desire combine with the human thirst to become powerful and feed upon there ego's. Below is a list of things that disturb me about the real world.


I have noticed that people behave in an almost evil manner while they are at work and will delight in overpowering people, especially one's who seem the weakest or in need. I also dislike the way that people develop groups and clicks to gain power and influence over others. The worst type of worker is the kiss arse type who wants to establish a over needed role and will do others work as well to gain a rank above others. You also get people who work with members of there own family thus giving them an unprecedented power.

Looking for work

It seems that for most of my life looking for work as been a complete waste of time. I used to apply to lots of different types of jobs but for some unusual reason would be unacceptable. I would consider myself to be a moderately intelligent person and have learnt to do an unbelievable amount of things myself without going on course's mainly skills on a computer. I have had a few jobs but it seems that the type of work I am good at requires in the united kingdom some kind of degree or huge amount of work history within the chosen area of work.

Procedure and law

More and more people create more rules, mainly because people wish to exploit situations to gain but for those of us who want to live an honest life it seems very near impossible. And for some bizzare reason the majority of us have been left to only be capable of being on benifits because our goverment make living on work a very insecure postion to be in.


Women are especially darker than men and this I find rather mysterious mainly due to the fact that I may have been brought up to think that women are usually more caring as a stereotype. I also feel that women are very very spoilt now and they have some kind of narrow minded ambition that gives them a very intimidating presence. I also find that most women are not as innocent as I would like to believe and seem to be fearless in order to find men who only care to use and abuse there image of innocence. I guess I am very idealistic towards women and think I tend to only notice the ones with a bad attitude.

English soil

Well the time as arrived when we have been invaded again and this time Poland are the invaders, Only the other day I noticed that my local town of Nottingham the English residents seem to have been replaced by polish ones, it felt like invasion of the body snatchers. And the way they all are dressed like middle class citizens against our poor slaved up native citizens made me feel an anger.

Not only that but I am fed up with seeing ethnic professionals in the medical profession who seem to not understand a word we say and I know this from experience but treat the white British as inferior and through that will give us nothing to really help us.
Culture is also an issue for me and it seems that our government seems to have provided other cultures and religions priority over our own culture. I don't actually see an English culture anymore, well I do and its a culture that the media have presented and developed to get us into going out and drinking every weekend so that the weeks/months money be paid back into the governments hands through the tax on alcohol.

The ethnic cultures are still very strong and in many ways an evil on our own soil mainly due to the fact they will disown and even kill women who will not be forced into marriage. But through our government building them temples and mosks in our own towns that the make the invasion more a reality.

The Mundane
It seems that England is becoming more and more mundane, work seems colourless and even business seems bland and black and white. I even detest the advertising that we get thrust into our face's on the television especially in the day time. The patronising adverts that sell things I find materialistic and pathetic such as insurance and double glazing. What has this country come to when things like that mean anything at all.

Things of interest


I like to watch films that make you think really, and most films have always in some way left me feeling and thinking about them especially if they have a message or meaning to them. As an artist I generally like to
delve into realms of art that cross over the line and explore uncharted areas which I could say I am a kind of explorer into the unknown. Again I kind of delight in the Romanticism of the sadness that some films seem to explore so well.

Salo "120 day's of Sodom"

I have recently watched the film I have been holding back on seeing for along time called Salo 120 day's of Sodom which was supposed to be described as being on the worlds most disturbing films ever. After watching the film it kind of enlightened me in a raw way about human brutality and only emphasise how dark the human spirt can be in all of us. While watching the film I realised I was also participating in an audience of evil curiosity. It kind of makes the mind feel happy to know that I wasn't feeling the pains that were being inflicted upon others. I think the film mainly deals with sexual brutality and how mankind will never really be satisfied by attacking such a sacred thing. You do get a strong feeling of how people have been abused in by the evils of political powers and especially with how Hitlers Nazi Germany abused its powers to commit atrocities. I think overall the film is one of those that was ok to watch once but the idea of watching it again don't seem to interest me maybe because it was uncomfortable and quite depressing.

The Bridge 2006 Documentary

For those of you who havn't heard of this film its a documentary type film that explores the tabboo subject of sucide due to people who commit sucide from jumping from the Golden Gate bridge. The first time I watched this film I could only bare it for about 20 mins especially after watching a man throw himself off the bridge. You get to hear from the ones who have lost someone after
they have killed themselves and the possible reasons for why they think the person might have done such anunspeakable thing. I have just finished watching the film this minute and think its an unsettling but valuble resource for people as an educational and informative study of human behaviour. It will also admit that it made me cry a little because of the sadness I felt for all involved in the tragigy that fell upon them.


Bioshock XBOX 360

Well I have been playing this game quite alot and think its a major release due to aspethetic merits and the gameplay is also powerfull with just enough creepyness and fear to keep the game enthrilling and exciting. It deffently takes you into another world a place very much connected to an expressionist scape similar to Gothem city in the Batman Films and a kind of circus of madness theme feeling where drugs as created a population of crazed clowns. It sure is a 8 out of 10 which is quite a good score.
