Hello, world. I’m MacDara Conroy, and this is my blog.


All I want to know about that Godzilla Blu-ray set is, will there be a Region B release, or is it already region-free? Because otherwise GTFO #tweet


Haven’t seen the new Network interface in the browser, but the Android app seems pretty nice on first impression #tweet


‘Compo culture’ to my ears sounds an awful lot like ‘we all partied’ #tweet


Someone please write ‘Webmention for Dummies’ because I cannot make heads or tails of the scant documentation for user implementation that exists #tweet


Need to copy data between two powered external drives. I don’t have enough sockets to plug both in at the same time, so I have to middle-man the first chunk of data on a USB HD. I may be some time… #tweet


Blimey, €28 to see Battles in October. There’s only two of them, like. What do they think they are, stand-up comedians? #tweet


#NowPlaying Helms Alee - Noctiluca #tweet


#NowPlaying Screaming Trees - Buzz Factory #tweet


This is my first two days off in a row for more than three weeks and of course I don’t know what to do with myself #tweet


I’d forgotten Salvatore Bellomo was in early ECW. I also didn’t notice if Wrestling Twitter noted his death earlier this year #tweet


Sigh, I think the service I use to tweet my blog posts has choked on the RSS feed changes I made to re-include tweets as entries > etc @MacDara #tweet


Made some changes to my blog’s RSS feed. If you’re a subscriber you shouldn’t have to do anything. Not a subscriber? Here’s the link: macdaraconroy.com/feed/ #tweet


Debugging some incremental edits to my blog’s templates this morning/afternoon. How’s your Saturday? #tweet


Ten years ago I lived adjacent to the Iveagh Markets; walked by all the time, saw and smelled the stench of the building’s decay. I can only imagine it’s worse now > @UnaMullally #tweet


I haven’t watched that Top Gun trailer but I assume the film is just an advert for that white elephant F-35 #tweet


I am inordinately excited about the prospect of a Gorilla Monsoon action figure > @RingsideC #tweet


If you’re in need of a ladder, Lidl have decent ones today for €50. Only 6kg too so you can probably carry it home if you don’t have access to a car #tweet


I feel like I’ve had New Twitter for a few weeks already? I suppose I was one of the test accounts they rolled it out to? Whatever; I use other apps for the most part #tweet


Someone robbed our green bin. Again. And the full one we left outside last night for collection and all #tweet


Slowly but surely making my way through Extreme Rules this week, and match of the show so far is definitely the SD tag title bout #tweet


News to me (I hesitate to say “good news”) but it also makes me wonder why the whole country isn’t considered a pressure zone... > @HousingPress #tweet


Having read more, now it seems like a case of the court playing legal football with the legislature, with prospective citizens’ lives as the ball > etc @MacDara #tweet


Thread on what seems like an astoundingly ignorant (if not poisonously xenophobic) judgment by our own High Court > @Aoifegg #tweet


It’s my saint’s day today. Be sure to let the Connemara fishermen in your life know you love them #tweet


It’s my first proper day off in two weeks and I just want to watch last night’s Evolve show but eir broadband won’t let me #tweet


I guess I can talk about this now: Extra Ordinary has one of the worst lead performances in a professional movie I’ve seen in quite some time. Like, embarrassingly poor. But it also has Don Caballero on the soundtrack #tweet


Ceremony leaving Matador for Relapse is kind of like Don Caballero leaving Touch & Go for, well, Relapse #tweet


It’s too warm for dinner. A bowl of soup just did #tweet


Just leaving this here if you’re ever at a loss for a gift to get me for whatever reason > @njpw1972 #tweet


#NowPlaying Black Dice - Beaches & Canyons #tweet


Ifrah’s good people and you should listen to what she has to say > @guardian #tweet


So humid last night, so cold this morning #tweet


Surprised I wasn’t the only one at the fleapit for Midsommar tonight. That’s the only thing about the experience that surprised me #tweet


7-Up here, either boiled (ugh) or with a spoonful of sugar; the latter the same principle as dropping a Mentos in a bottle of Coke, it turns out, only less explosive > @leftgayle #tweet


Clover mites are bloody everywhere this summer #tweet


There is absolutely an insurance racket in this country and they’ve been caught rapid, as they say > @sinnfeinireland #tweet


All these empty seats at #G129 in Dallas make it look like a World Class stadium show #tweet


That my most vivid memories of childhood are Challenger and Chernobyl probably says a lot about me #tweet


Today’s weird find: there are two mini private cinemas within five minutes of each other outside Comber in Co Down > etc @MacDara #tweet


Riding on the bit of good news I learned this morning to get me through the rest of this work stretch. Only another eight days to go… #tweet


Not really sure why I’m paying for @eir broadband when they can’t maintain DSL sync with a little extra sunshine and humidity #tweet


Ah nuts, I’m gonna miss the press screening for Stuber #tweet


So let me get this right: neo-Nazis believe quick-drying cement hardens so fast, you’ll turn to stone before you can wash it off? That’s the impression I’m getting > etc @MacDara #tweet


Watching Fyter Fest and yeah, no. That chairshot to the head was not good. And their excuses after the fact (about a ‘gimmicked’ chair gone wrong, etc) are bullshit; the whole thing clearly went off as planned, bar the public reaction of course > etc @MacDara #tweet


Nice promotion for AEW at the CEO finals this afternoon #tweet


Spur is a fine place to eat, and fuck that white racist minority, they don’t speak for all Afrikaans people > etc @MacDara #tweet


It’s just dawning on me that I have a PC for the first time since 2002 and I can pretty much play any game I’d be interested in? #tweet
