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.

Test your inner nerd

Readers of The ShadowLands are invited to take part in a special test. Readers of Blair's new site can try this test, while those who read both, but only go to Blair's site because they are curious can go here.

(A big shout out to Chico and Mercedes at Altria Marketing! I'll have the results to you real soon!)

UPDATE: Results just in show that readers of the ShadowLands are up to 40 per cent less nerdy than visitors to other sites. ShadowLands spokesthing Margo's Maid was not surprised by the result.

"ShadowLands was born of the dispossessed and has bubbled up from the darkest recesses of the internet. The results just confirm what we already knew - that ShadowLands readers are hip individuals with a charismatic edge. In short, we have just the kind of reader who is likely to convince others to take up tobacco products. As a result of this information, we have been able to put together an artist's impression of the average ShadowLands reader."

Somewhat nerdy. I mean face it, you are nerdier than about half the test takers.
What ever!!
Hello to Chico and Mercedes at Altria Marketing too!!

I'm somewhat nerdy too. Might be a typical profile of margo's commenters beginning to emerge.

Ash said...

62% scored higher (more nerdy),
2% scored the same, and
36% scored lower (less nerdy).

What does this mean? Your nerdiness is:

Not nerdy, but definitely not hip.

There you go Margos, that's what I am.

Sue Charlton: That croc was going to eat me alive.
Michael J. "Crocodile" Dundee: Oh, I wouldn't hold that against him. Same thought crossed my mind once or twice.

So I lose points because I don't have certain magazine subscriptions. Magazines which are on the Net.

For Spot: 89.

stop the dog - you would be the exception that proves the rule, but keep it quiet all the same, if you don't mind.

Margo's Maid said...

spot the dog, I mean. Bugger.

At first I was ashamed of my nerdiness but once I saw that Spot barely beat my nerd score I now feel ashamed of my inadequate nerdiness.
