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

Four episodes into Maniac and honestly, I’d rather watch a show about Linda and Bruce than all that Terry Gilliam knock-off shtick #tweet

There’s a comic con on in Dublin this weekend? This afternoon is literally the first I’ve heard about it #tweet

Only in the door and have to change the DNS settings on the router to get around the hames eir made of it earlier today #tweet

So busy this week I haven’t had a chance to get excited about seeing so many New Japan wrestlers in one place tomorrow night #tweet

Still breezy outside but lucky to escape the worst of Storm Callum up here #tweet

Can I ask something: is the Circle line not good enough for Fiona Bruce? #tweet

Finished work early tonight; time to give these dried out, bloodshot eyes a break #tweet

Another Budget, another confirmation that this State is a neoliberal hellscape #tweet

Last-minute editing work means no KOPW for me till… actually I’ll likely only have time for the highlights before the weekend https://t.co/xWjvMjutrd #tweet

No King of Pro-Wrestling for me till tomorrow so I should probably mute those hashtags #tweet

Can’t say I’m surprised the UFC booked a schmozz to end last night’s show since they’re so desperate for attention #tweet

I’m assuming that Bryan/Miz match was cut for time. It fits with Bryan’s history, etc. But it was not good, the cadence was all wrong. And the crowd picked up on it #WWESSD https://t.co/viHdk2L8QZ #tweet

No pre-show for tomorrow’s Super Show-Down, I notice #tweet

Uh oh, the parcel of stuff I ordered last week is being palmed off to Fastway. Shall I toss a coin to see if it arrives? #tweet

Oh, and I finally got a digital subscription to The Wire that was much cheaper than expected. That’s a lot of back issues to read, so #tweet

Picked up my new spectacles this evening so I’ll be spending the night getting used to them #tweet

They will literally do anything except build houses, won’t they? #tweet

I heard Snail Mail playing over the PA in a shopping centre this morning. Things like that stick with me #tweet

I’ll be with everyone in spirit at #RaiseTheRoof this afternoon. I know my union @NUJofficial will be there to make a stand #tweet

This thing about barroom brawls… real physical fights make me uncomfortable. Never seen one, never been in one. Maybe that’s why I like pro wrestling (and even MMA; there’s an element of control) https://t.co/hhJCvB2vcA #tweet

There are 10 members of the New Japan roster coming to Ireland in a week and a half. One step closer to a Liger visit #tweet

Watching yesterday’s NJPW Long Beach show and Bee just pointed out that Marty Scurll nicked his hairstyle from Sokka in Avatar: The Last Airbender #tweet

It’s just dawned on me that Road House and Ghost are two films in which Patrick Swayze throws down #tweet

Finished in the top half of the MeFi Baseball league and on triple-digit points, too. Not bad, not bad at all #tweet

Wire, performing songs from their classic first three albums live on German TV’s Rockpalast in 1979. #video

Was feeling down on myself this morning but then I remembered there’s wrestling on tonight #tweet

I wonder how Howard Finkel is doing #tweet

I am following the thing vicariously through the rest of you and I can’t even #tweet

Lidl changed the recipe of their lebkuchen hearts for this year and now there’s a lot more apricot jam inside. I think I like it #tweet

First hot chocolate of the long dark winter #tweet

The Go-Betweens’ ‘Spring Rain’, except instead of ‘Spring Rain’ you sing ‘Ving Rhames’ #tweet

McGregor and Khabib can both get in the bin. Is there anyone good fighting at UFC 229? #tweet

I didn’t know Stephen, but I did make him laugh once when @GlennHogarty asked what I thought of No Escape and I replied “It’s a bit racist?” Rest in power https://t.co/UyfQEly6dK #tweet

Have to say, I’m pretty grateful for no power outage after that storm yesterday. Couldn’t do my job without it #tweet

It’s chilly this morning. “Feels like 7C”? Time to switch the heating on #tweet

Just remembered it’s Talk Like a Pirate Day but I can’t be yarrr-sed #tweet

That’s a lot of leaves and other debris getting blown around our house #tweet

Finished the late shift early; now it’s Bake Off time #tweet
