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.

Gene Simmons

The bass player of Kiss, Gene Simmons is way more interesting than most rock stars. Born Chaim Witz in Israel on 25 August 1949, he claims never to have smoked, been drunk, or high in his life.

Simmons was a supporter of the war in Iraq and was quoted as saying, "I'm ashamed to be surrounded by people calling themselves liberal who are, in my opinion, spitting on the graves of brave American soldiers who gave their life to fight a war that wasn't a country they've never been to...simply to liberate the people therein".

By way of explanation he said: "I will forever be grateful to America for going into World War II , when it had nothing to gain, in a country that was far away...and rescued my Mother from the Nazi German concentration camps. She is alive and I am alive because of America. And, if you have a problem with America, you have a problem with me." More on Simmons' support for Canadian soldiers here.

His book, "Kiss and makeup" is a great read. It was a real eye-opener for me, and I'm not a Kiss fan. I simply found it to be well written and interesting - which is something a lot of books lack.
