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

Each week, The ShadowLands submits an insulting question to ABC television's interactive Q and A program with the aim of having it not published on their website. This week we are putting on the line our perfect two from two rejection record:
Question for Anne Summers:

In your Q and A biography, you say you have written numerous best selling books, however, nobody I know has heard of more than one. Do you think the fact that we have never heard of these numerous best-selling books is a part of a conspiracy by the male-dominated military-industrial complex, or are you just a lying liar?
UPDATE: Someone has submitted an even better question directed at noone in particular: "How come only the left gets the clap."

UPDATE UPDATE: Three out of three rejected! We're on a roll.

"did you think for a moment that you were in a highly refined company maybe?"

I was thinking along the lines of erudite, witty, charming company with a rapier like wit. Those whose company and conversation i would enjoy as dinner companions.

That or people with the same filthy minds, either one works for me.

This is perhaps a reference to the acclamation given to lefty statements that the audience either (a) approves of, or (b)responds to in a pavlovian fashion after "applause" signs are waved at them by floor staff.
It is probably not a reference to the Hyundai Applause, mistakenly named by a Korean PR man with a book of english translations after being told by a colleague that the car was a load of clap.
