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.

June 15 St Vitus Day. Vitus was a christian saint from Sicily for whom no primary historical documents can be found. He is now patron saint of actors, comedians, dancers and epileptics. the anniversary of the 1993 death of champion British formula one driver James Hunt who died of a heart attack at 45. Hunt was a champion breeder of budgies and parrots. One of his parrots, Humbert was slated to appear as Captain Hook's bird in a West End production of Peter Pan, but was returned to Hunt because of the bird's intolerance to the actor playing Captain Hook.

My grandmother used to admonish us grandkids with a shrilly shouted command: "WILL you kids sit still, you act like you've got St. Vitus' Dance!" Since she was an Appalachian born and bred, therefore not Italian, nor Catholic, I always wondered where she got the reference.
