My Blog List

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.

and what have we done?

The ShadowLands will be taking a holiday for a few weeks, and be back (hopefully) in the single digits of January, possibly with a new template.

During the first seven months of operation, the ShadowLands has:

* told the story of how a senior public servant may have been leaking information during and following WWII (thanks stackja);

* was the only public journal of record that seemed to notice that Kevin Rudd's rationale for acting on climate change was wrong and got a government department to admit it;

* provided the only submission to Australia's Department of Climate Change to point it out;

* Provided a blow by blow accounts of action at the Poznan Climate Change Conference;

* Found the most sensational un-reported youtube video of the year;

* Followed the amazing journey of Lewis Pugh;

* was the first blog in the world to call the election of Barack Obama;

* Found the money trail of Snow Cone Tony Jones;

* hosted articles by a stellar cast of celebrities including John Butler, Cate Blanchett, Prof Tim Flannery, and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad;

* Was thrown out of the Korean Friendship Association after making one post.

Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and general non-offensive greetings to all those who don't believe in such things until next year...

MM, yours is a truly admirable record of acievement. If only I could muster a cast of DPRK proportions we would launch a large rocket in your honour by a progressive showing of many 30cm square cards, held briefly towards the camera, each with a small detail of a grand animation.
That would show the so-called Friendship Association the wrong thinking which led them to that catastrophic faux pas in ejecting you from their hidebound and dogmatic cloister.
