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.

It's something to see that this could be published in the generally rancid Fairfax press. But it was the SMH, not The Age. Such sentiments will have a hard time surfacing from the factional swamp that is the ABC, although they will smile about rich kids not being able to afford the trendy inner suburbs. That is a right of ABC presenters, whose pay levels present no such problem, but rather weaken the constant cries of under-resourcing.
The last election, tonight's news assured me, was all about evil AWAs. Yeah, right.
