Yeah, we’ve had a re-up.

Welcome to the new look On The Record. With The Irish Times now a free-for-all, we have decided it is time for change on this blog.

After 782 posts, 10,098 comments and 1.8 million happy customers served (I think – maths was never my strong point), it is time for On The Record 2.0.

No more giving out. No more fuming. No more cynicism. No more of that auld shite. We’re going to be happy. Positive. Friendly. Joyful. Totally willing to believe that when a promoter says a show was cancelled due to “unforseen circumstances”, it actually means “unforseen circumstances”.

While we wait for the pills to kick in and for this strange new mood to subside, please take the time to adjust your browsers, address books, web feeds and the other ways you have of getting here. Our new handle is http://www.irishtimes.com/blogs/ontherecord
