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.

Happy Independence Day...

to our American friends.

Here are three things to like about Americans.

* politeness. Americans not only say please and thank you, they say "you're welcome" if you say thank you. They give you water with your meal, even if you didn't ask for it. It was an American who invented the automatic hat tipper.

* Winning the Pacific War. The Japanese were once impolite - lest we forget. Hands up who thinks they wanted to stop at Papua New Guinea?

* The enormous contribution Americans have made to popular culture. Yip, yip, yip - ahaw.

On behalf of America, thankee kindly, M's M. And much obliged for that link to the Yip Yips; I had completely forgotten about them, but seeing the video reminded me of how funny they were, and how much I used to enjoy watching them with my children.
