DateWho knows!

LocationFloating in a jar, in  a room, on a desk


@mirthdefenders anyone around see where i left my disembodied head? It’s got an itchy nose at the moment.


@longlivebppaul We haven’t spotted you yet, but can you help us out by telling us what you see? Any useful landmarks to look for?


@mirthdefenders It seems as if everything is sideways and there is bits of computers scattered around the place.


Who is control of @mirthdefenders anyways?


@longlivebppaul “My name is Legion: for we are many.”


@mirthdefenders the room seems to be letting in water. Good i have glass surrounding my head.


@longlivebppaul Ah yes, we’ve been experimenting with high pressure processing techniques. Wanting to retain your ‘freshness’ so to speak.


@longlivebppaul link for more info –


@mirthdefenders that is very exciting stuff. It’s like a jet wash, but for my face!


@mirthdefenders but if i knew what hydrostatics meant i would realise that it’s not like a jet wash at all!


@mirthdefenders you know that’s not very exciting at all. I don’t know if my head can take that type of pressure.


DateWho knows! Five days since tweeting Legion

LocationStill in the jar upon the desk in the room


@mirthdefenders I’ve started hearing noises in the room next to me. That’s the science lab I wonder if i shout, CAN ANYONE HEAR ME!?


@mirthdefenders this turbulence is gonna roll me off this desk

Science Officer’s Log: Day 5

by on Aug.03, 2012, under Crew Logs

Time/Date: Unknown+5
Mission Status: ψ

I think I’ve quarantined what appeared to be a sentient virus in the computer system, but was probably just a corrupted installation of an AI chat program. The sensors are still shot, though, and I still can’t tell what the hell is going on. Maybe we’ve escaped Earth’s gravity and are hurtling toward oblivion. Or could be we’re losing altitude and are hurtling toward oblivion. Maybe we’re on a collision course with Mount Everest and everyone’s abandoned the station, leaving me hurtling towards obliv-

Get a grip, Ben.

This morning I heard a voice. I think it was real, but if I’ve learned anything recently it’s that subsisting on Creamola Foam, nailclippings and 11-year-old Russian vodka makes for some interesting hallucinations. It sounded like Paul though, and if I was to hallucinate some inbound rescuer, I would probably imagine someone with at least a body and some legs. Maybe I’m not yet mad! Hooray!

If I can direct him to the portable emitter for the hard-light body I was working on for his birthday… But how? Maybe if he can roll to the end of the table I left him on, and somehow get into the top drawer… I wonder should I tell him I haven’t tested it?

If the defenders can find each other again, maybe there’s hope for us.

Science Officer’s Log

by on Jul.30, 2012, under Crew Logs

Time/Date: Unknown
Mission Status: Ω’

I have awoken in complete darkness in a warm pool of what I hope against olfactory hope is water. I think – though I’m a little dizzy – I’m in my sleeping quarters module. I also think I’m &ä╝c0alone. The module’s hatch has shut down but perhaps it’s best I don’t try the manual release until I find out what, if anything, has happ♣0Ë6þened. I hope this isn’t a late April Fool’s joke, like last ♂+♀=☺ time.

Some of the instrument panels seem to have power. Most of the sensors are apparently offline, and those which are still responding must, simply, be misreporting data. Looks¢¤åX= like the only module with power is the lab — my lab — and as regards our altitude, this can’t be right.

The sounds seemingly emanating from the hull suggest otherwise, though &♪r▄ãg▬╚Bä↔Ìã╠7&>>code/?q0);ãXo

I connected the dots! Yay!

by on Jul.24, 2011, under Crew Logs

Hi there Mirthlings!

I’m Ben, also known as CosmicStressHead on another site (

I’m one of the people taking part in connecting the dots on a thing on Doug’s site ( The thing itself can be found here.

Disabled Cabaret Octopus

My submission to connecting the dots:
Disabled Cabaret Octopus

Doug has seen his way clear to providing a link to showcase some of each participant’s own work on his site and I have chosen to give Doug the link to the site you’re viewing now (

Although this isn’t my main site (see link above) I chose this one to give to Doug as it really is the most recently active project on which I have been working (that’s not really saying much though – intertree).

So, make your choice visitor! Stay here and listen to some really rather crude and crass entertainment or saunter over to and view some of my own comic archives.

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 to see what we, as a society, may be about to lose.


Thank you Mirthlings, thank you all.
