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.

John Logie Baird

Born on August 13, 1888, John Logie Baird was a truly great inventor.

In his twenties he tried to create diamonds by heating graphite and shorted out Glasgow's electricity supply. Later, he created the first television set using a hatbox, a pair of scissors, some darning needles, a few bicycle light lenses, a used tea chest, and sealing wax and glue.

Sadly, in Australia today, many associate him with the television awards known as the Logies, and the self-obsessed retards who win them.
