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...

in 1572, English poet and dramatist Ben Jonson was born. Sadly, he was later discredited for taking steroids.

in 1936, the International Surrealist Exhibition opened in London. Salvador Dali nearly suffocated while delivering a lecture in a deep-sea diving suit. No, really.

in 2002, Antonio Meucci was acknowledged as the inventor of the telephone by US Congress. Sounds like the US Congress has way too much time on their hands...

As long as Congress is honoring dead men nobody ever heard of, they're out of our hair temporarily.
