Welcome to German Joys reloaded. There was a surprising and touching outpouring of anguish (well, mild dismay) when I shut down the old site. So I decided to relaunch German Joys, but with a new look and a new URL. This is now a WordPress blog.
I have moved most of the old archives to this new blog, which took a fair bit of doing. Some of the links and media didn’t make it, which is par for the course, but a surprising number did.
I deleted some posts which I thought were dated or just shite. This means any comments you may have posted on them were nuked. Sorry about that — if there was something genuinely awesome in there, I have a backup of the old site which I can send you.
I’m allowing comments, since most of my commenters were well-informed and thoughtful. Let’s be dignified, shall we?
There’s going to be quite a bit less posting about day-to-day politics this time around. More culture and, believe it or not, local Düsseldorf history. Yeah!
In any case, I hope you like the relaunch.
