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.

Question They Won't Ask: Week XII

Each week The ShadowLands submits a question to ABC television's interactive Q and A program with the aim that it should be too hot for them to ask or publish. This week we are supremely confident:

Question for Tony:

During the week, you interviewed Professor Ian Plimer about climate change, but first of all, implied that his credibility could be questioned because he has worked for mining companies.

Do you get a tingle up your inside leg every time you discuss this subject knowing that your interviewees might mention your paid appearances at (at least) two pro global warming conferences?

UPDATE: Astonishingly...published.

Let's be glued in hope that snow cone has the courage to ask this question of himself. Well done to you if he does. Persistence.

I said this over at kae's... the thing about Tone is that he at least gives skeptics airtime.

I think I have a question for next week:

"Tony - if you had to exclude all audience members with facial and/or nipple piercings, would there be anyone left in the studio?"

Where do they round up all these wierdos?

Snow Cone tried to ask Garrett a question about his claim of 6 metre sea level rise - about the first time I've seen him ask a question from a sceptical point of view - and he did at least have Plimer on the other day. A glimmer of self awareness - maybe.
