Our mission

Are you that special person who - weary from trudging the endless superhighways - just longs to camp next to a glorious oasis of the mind? Do you desire to explore new frontiers, splash in shared ideas, fill your belly with the refreshing fruits of inspiration, and bask in the gentle rays of fond reflection?

Well, you can fuck right off. This, my friends, is not that place. This place is... The ShadowLands.

Century 9, Quatrain 83 The Sun in 20 degrees Taurus [May 1-10, 2000?]There will be a great earthquake; the great theater full up will be ruined.Darkness and trouble in the air, on the sky and land,When the infidel calls upon God and the Saints.

Century 1, Quatrain 16 Saturn joined with (Scorpio) transiting toward Sagittarius,At its highest ascendant,Pest, Famine, Death through military hand,The century as well as the Age approaches its renewal.

Wow Margo's you really are racking up the celebrity guest posters. John Butler, Tim Flannery. Can you get Al Gore as well. And Obama, but only if he becomes president. Your blog is much to high brow for failed candidates.

Oh Great Oracle of Doom,
Thank you for giving us your words of pessimism and disaster.

For we have sinned,
Yea, we have sinned.

We have worshipped the god of capitalism, which results in the terrible creation of carbon dioxide.

And verily, this carbon dioxide is not the same as natural carbon dioxide created by all God's creatures, the butterfly, the gazelle and the polar bear, but it is a terrible evil carbon dioxide, the sort created by humans and motor vehicles and coal fired power station.

And oh, great Flannerus, we have sinned in our enjoyment of televisions and plasma screen TV's and now we will meet the fate that we so richly deserve.

Wise one, you warned us but we did not listen.
Wise one, you spoke but we did not hear.
Oh great oracle, forgive us, have mercy on us, and help us.
