Count MoriVond performs: “A Satire on Charles II”

Count MoriVond “A Satire on Charles II” written by the 2nd Earl of Rochester, John Wilmot. A theatrical lambasting of the reign of King Charles, the 2nd. An iconic figure, the Stuart… so much so that I’ve decided to dress as the merry monarch in this buffoonery-laden spoof. Mad Earl. Merry Monarch. The Merry Gang…. Nobility debauched. Nobilis comoediis. Homines comedy. Parts 1 & 2.

Comte Morivond: Casualties Before Coffee

“Casualties Before Coffee” by Count MoriVond, from MSL: The Covid19 Writings

MORTIFICATION-LIKE SENTIMENTS: THE COVID19 WRITINGS I have begun to write verses based on the global pandemic and am creating accompanying visual art pieces for these upon their completion. In order to keep things in real time – I am writing these sequentially, creating their accompanying videos, respectively, and posting them in linear time – as I make’em. If there’s enough interest in the playlist I will definitely consider publishing physical books… photo-heavy books. May you enjoy this work. —Comte Morivond
