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.

In space, they can't hear the songs

The ever helpful Minicapt emails with information that according to the DPRK, North Korea's satellite is now broadcasting patriotic songs - though to whom remains spookily unexplained.

BTW A little-reported fact: the DPRK claimed that it sent a satellite into space in 1998.

UPDATE: Oh no, Hans Brix!:
"For North Korea, the question may be what offers the best security — nuclear weapons of their own or a piece of paper.

Perhaps a piece of paper could be made more attractive if it were signed by all the relevant great powers and combined with a peace treaty...

Perhaps former US president Jimmy Carter will go again to Pyongyang, reminding Kim Jong-il and the regime of the wishes of Kim Il-sung."

North Korea is like a twisted parody of itself.

the other place that gives me the creeps is northern uganda, but there are not even any jokes to be had from that one.
