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.

Burkina Faso

August 5 is Independence Day for Burkina Faso, formerly Upper Volta, the land-locked west African nation.

Blaise Campaore has been President of BF since 1987. He owes much of his long and magnificent reign to the uninvestigated death of his predecessor Thomas Sankara and other potential revolutionary rivals.

A rough translation of "Burkina Faso" is "Men of integrity in the father's house".

Please take a moment to honour Independence Day of this nation by standing for the national anthem.
