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.

The joy of maps

Whenever there is a puerile internet fad going around, you can be sure that the ShadowLands won't be far behind. One of the latest internet fads is funny maps.

Above: how the Russians view Europe, and how Americans see the rest of the world. (From various cool map sites.)

Also, a not so gentle reminder here that real cartographers actually aren't funny at all.
