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.

On this day

...on June 6 in 1918, one of the first major battles involving US soldiers in WWI, the Battle of Belleau Wood commenced. One of the most famous quotations came during the start of the battle when Gunnery Sergeant Dan Daly prompted his men forward with the words: "Come on, you sons of bitches, do you want to live forever?" After a slow start, the United States went on to win the 20th century.

...it is the anniversary of D-Day which occurred in 1944. Steven Spielberg managed to recreate the landings with computer generated imagery and 1,000 extras. These guys managed it with just three people.

...it is Queensland Day. Said to be situated somewhere north of NSW, the state currently has a number of vacancies for teachers following Operation Centurion .

The Australian Film Industry is a disgrace. Any time they get questioned as to why they can't produce uplifting and inspiring stories from our military exploits they claim war movies are too expensive to make. Those guys who did Omaha in 6 days with 4 guys prove them wrong.

Methinks it has nothing to do with cost and more to do with attitude to the military.
