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.

June 24

is the anniversary of uncontrolled dancing in Aachen, Germany in 1374.

is the anniversary of the 1664 founding of New Jersey, inspiration of the scientifically proven world's funniest joke. Is there anything science can't do?

is Quebec National Day or if you prefer, Saint-Jean-Baptiste Day. On this day in 1968, on the eve of a general election, the new Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Trudeau was in the centre of a riot where 290 people were arrested. Trudeau was filmed refusing to take cover or leave the grandstand when the rioters pelted it with rocks, as well as bottles containing paint and acid. The incident contributed to his winning a significant majority the next day. Election strategists take note.

UPDATE: June 24 is Dash's 18th birthday. Being extremely well-bred, Dash is widely considered by experts to be one of the world's leading 18-year olds. Happy birthday.
