We’re back!

For a special test episode of the new setup of the show going forward (including our beta pre-production theme music), we are planning a complete re-launch and a return to weekly broadcasting.

To facilitate this, we have also completely redesigned the site and added a community forum @ www.defendersofthemirth.com/forum. Sign up today and become a fellow Mirthling Peer :-).

We’ve also set up a subreddit @ dotm.reddit.com for fellow Mirthling Peers to add their own links to articles they’d like us to cover on future shows.

So, we hope you’d like to join in the fun and sign up.

Google+ – Save the Belfast thread!

by on Jul.17, 2011, under Crew Logs

Hello to all those who have come here having been subjected to the shameless promotion over on Google+

We have made a political promise today – to campaign immediately, and to full effect, for the preservation of what may turn out to be Google+’s Northern Ireland moment of history.

This is not a task we enter into lightly, and nor should anyone feel that we are doing this solely in the interest of raising our own publicity; although this will be undoubtedly an unfortunate and, in many ways, unwelcome side-effect. We feel strongly enough about this motion that any kind of celebrity status we may garner we will grin and bear magnanimously.

So, friends, SAVE THE BELFAST THREAD. Work with us through this challenging time.

Anyone currently unaware of the ongoing threat to our national heritage, we urge you all now to visit http://plus.google.com/103135006586075679705/posts/NaTAb42rF7x to see what we, as a society, may be about to lose.

KEVIN MCNICHOLL MUST BE STOPPED!

Thank you Mirthlings, thank you all.
