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.

Erasmus

the Dutch humanist and bookworm died on July 12 1536.

Erasmus is attributed with some quotes that have since become cliches, such as "Prevention is better than cure", "Fortune favours the audacious" and amazingly (no, I'm not kidding) "Women, can't live with them, can't live without them."

Erasmus receives a long overdue razzing regarding this quote - if not exactly a convincing rebuttal - over here.

it is a great achievement to invent a cliche.
