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

Psst, don’t tell WWE but I found at least one Network clip where they haven’t overdubbed the Midnight Express theme with that awful rubbish http://bit.ly/2Vb6Ap6 #tweet


Hands up who else got the Nitro book for Xmas #tweet


Merry Xmas to those who celebrate. My gift from Santa this year was a networking issue that made me bang my desk with rage #tweet


There’s no such thing as Xmas Eve fireworks, put ‘em away till New Year’s FFS #tweet


Aaaaand that’s me off work for the next two evenings #tweet


Nice to see a blue sky as the days get brighter from here on in #tweet


Fantastics vs Midnight Express at the 1988 Great American Bash is the kind of match they could redo move for move at an NXT TakeOver today and get rave reviews #tweet


It’s not even Xmas yet and Lidl have already pulled their lebkuchen from the shelves #tweet


Pretty sure it was @dairelynch who introduced me to the Caspar Brötzmann Massaker years ago. The new Southern Lord reissues are sure going down a treat these chilly midwinter nights #tweet


So it turns out, there are a lot of baseball-themed movies. I'm going to have to set a few ground rules if I'm doing this https://t.co/W70AhzDD1a #tweet


Had a weird fever overnight but I think it was the last vestiges of this extended cold that’s finally lifted #tweet


Rewatching Rollins/Ambrose from Sunday night. It’s really not a bad match, just the Wrong Match for them #tweet


Penny Marshall’s death reminds me that I’ve never seen A League of Their Own. Nor most baseball-themed movies for that matter. Which gives me a notion for a new movie-watching project… https://t.co/gAhJYzkWc6 #tweet


Apologies in advance to everyone to whom we’re sending an Xmas card for the state of my cursive handwriting #tweet


Unpopular opinion: I don’t get the fuss over IDLES. They’re fine and all, they just do nothing for me #tweet


Woke up expecting some major changes to WWE, and what do I get? That hoary old ‘McMahons = ratings’ shibboleth #tweet


Couldn’t help but notice that guy with the luminous green shirt wasn’t at ringside for WWE TLC last night. I’m both delighted at the change and concerned for his wellbeing #tweet


I still haven’t shaken off this cold. How many days has it been now? #tweet


Hey, you know that Greta Van Fleet album everyone was shitting on recently? Was it really produced by the same guy who did those Don Caballero records? #tweet


Nah, it doesn't work. The interface works, but it doesn't do anything. I tried Mobius instead; that does work standalone, but not great (too much background noise), and the AU plugin doesn't show up in GarageBand https://t.co/fyRyzMYW5P #tweet


Long day/night at work, then finishing the Robert Forster Go-Betweens book and… I’m floored #tweet


Here it is, the first Meat Puppets song from the original lineup in over 23 years. Sounds like it’s from that era, too, with a touch of Up on the Sun psych in the solos. By the way, here's a bonus live set from June. #video
