March 2019


Only found out about The Dragon Prince a week or two ago but it’s great, isn’t it? #tweet


Here’s a subtweet for you: I don’t do straw man arguments. Move along, please #tweet


The epitome of Ireland’s Dublin-centrism is this coypu story, which first became an issue in 2017 but that wasn’t in Dublin so… #tweet


Just thought of like five better puns than the crappy headline I put on a piece before end of shift last night #tweet


Um, kinda forgetting everything before 1985 there, aren’t we? In the context of where the phrase originates, the st… https://t.co/fF8IkboTbc #tweet


Political journalism is really bad. I’m sure this isn’t news to most observers, but it has to be said #tweet


Here’s a thread of fair and valid criticisms of Joe ‘I can’t do my job and just watch the monitor when I commentate at UFC events’ Rogan https://t.co/iwzgjOu8aT #tweet


Did anyone expect Theresa May to say anything of substance right now? She hasn’t at any time over the last few years #tweet


I think this means ‘he made another horror movie’, which is like criticising John Carpenter for following Halloween with The Fog https://t.co/soC4UKbsuT #tweet


Less haste for this now seeing as I found a voucher in my eBay account and just used it to buy a matcha whisk. But still interested in others' experiences https://t.co/ZpLDElBXmu #tweet


Do I know anyone who’s shopped with AliExpress? I must do. What’s your experience? #tweet


Who would’ve thought the humble egg would get the far right so wound up? #tweet


Nightmare fuel in the new video for From the Bogs of Aughiska, directed by @FracturedSeries (CW for flashing images) https://t.co/0GWqNdzGjl #tweet


Some positive news for Monday: where I live, at least, daylight hours will be one minute longer than night #tweet


WrestleMania X is on the Network right now if you’re at a loss for something to do tonight #tweet


I was only thinking about this earlier: Katie Taylor is out there collecting belts with nary a peep from the nation and Conor McRacist is doing what, exactly? https://t.co/qsrRfPRkAd #tweet


Something really bugging me about last night: the guy in the section behind us who yelled that Liger is a ‘Jap’ http://bit.ly/2TdtIRA #tweet


Just met my favourite wrestler ever. No big deal, like #tweet


I’m glad I went to UCD, but if I’d known I could have simply not done Irish in the Leaving, it would’ve been a better points strategy for sure https://t.co/oX41U9SPix #tweet


They’ve made a Super Split flavoured Coke now? That sounds disgusting #tweet


Two great records out today you should hear: the new Deafkids and Elizabeth Colour Wheel #tweet


49 people murdered for social media lulz. That’s the world we’re living in now #tweet


Just a short clip of Jawbox in rehearsals for their upcoming reunion tour. Which I won't be seeing. Sad face. #video


For those of you confused about last night’s Brexit news: it’s guff. Britain was no more ‘trapped’ by the backstop a few months ago than it is now. All she got is a letter confirming stuff that was already in the spirit of the agreement https://t.co/NuiENZwSMZ #tweet


Down to the wire tonight. Thanks a bunch, Theresa May #tweet


Is it just a weird camera angle, or does Vince look very, um, slender? #tweet


PSA for Irish/UK wrestling fans: US clocks went forward this morning, so Fastlane tonight starts at 11pm (Kickoff at 10pm) #tweet


Was only this morning discussing at home that ‘technical solutions’ are pie-in-the-sky stuff. As if they’d even spend the requisite on this Podunk corner of the world https://t.co/vZyoofovc2 #tweet


Regarding that Hollywood Reporter list everyone is going on about: it’s a framing issue, really. Favourite /= Best #tweet


I liked Lords of Chaos a lot. There, I said it #tweet


Guerilla Toss’ upcoming Euro tour isn’t coming to Ireland. Understandable, but boo to that all the same #tweet


Even apart from all the qualities that made/make Jushin Thunder Liger such a phenomenal performer: surgery for a brain tumour, then continued his career for almost a quarter of a century. Beast god indeed #tweet


Had a feeling this was coming. I got to see him wrestle in London a few years ago, and I’ll see him one more time in just over a week in my home town https://t.co/tmAaJtv2xe #tweet


King Kong Bundy as well? Fuck this week, and it’s barely even Tuesday #tweet


Still lashing with rain up here in The Town. If it snows it won’t stick #tweet


Extremely Vince voice: It’s the March to WrestleMania! #tweet
