About Distinctively Dionysian, the Journal

Heretics, free spirits, iconoclasts, outlaws, incendiary lovers, anarchists, rebels with dark laughter…Distinctively Dionysian (DD) is a love letter to you. And now it is in English.

Dionysian is a journal for the passionate individual who rejects the static et the status quo. It is created with much delight for the wicked, who, in their contempt, joyfully deny complicity, mediocrity, conformity, et the socialized mindset. Dionysian is reserved for wild things armed with desire who despise the banality of *__isms, identity, et all “causes” that dare to strip the individual of freedom.

Each issue is charged with those who carry a certain je ne sais quoi as they refuse to be controlled or categorized ~ for the heretic who revels in pulling false idols down from their pedestal ~ for the daring who have finally discovered in “sin” & “crime” the new spring from which the highest synthesis of life gushes.

L’étranger in an Alien World, you, declaring authority, society, and perhaps civilization itself the enemy: as you exuberantly counter authority’s modus operandi and the herd in their puritanical moralism and collective slavery, with endless devilry ~ this love letter is for you. The collected works within these pages are highlighted in tribute and celebration, explicitly reserved for the devilish self-owned insurgent who, perhaps, like me, finds themselves enraptured by the seductive charm of the great, big, creative nothing.
