Tried to download the new Melvins promo from Haulix but it failed twice, and now it’s streaming only? Sigh… #tweet


I’m sure @atomic_elbow will be pleased to know issue 22 has just popped through my letterbox. That’s not a euphemism for anything #tweet

Sleepless night from wanting to pull out half my teeth with this sinus infection #tweet


How much money has been wasted on this ridiculous Jobstown Trial? And for what? To grow enmity b/w public and Garda? To kill Irish Labour? #tweet

Trying to write but my brain is failing, ugh #tweet

One can appreciate the finish of the women’s MITB from a storyline perspective and still think it was a massive F-you to WWE’s women #tweet

So I might have mildly sunburnt my nose and hairline #tweet
