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

Friday Five #47

*1. What was the last song you heard?*
‘We Like Having These Things’ by Numbers, from their debut album Numbers Life on tigerbeat6. Numbers are a great art-punk band from San Francisco with a Moog for a bass. If I ever get my pipe-dream record label off the ground I would kill to licence their stuff. We just don’t have anything like it here. The Irish music scene, even the so-called _underground_, is pretty conservative in the big scheme of things.
*2. What were the last two movies you saw?*
Thurday night I stayed up late and watched Lost Souls, a weird but okay occult thing with Winona Ryder and that bloke who used to be in Game On, and The Original Kings of Comedy, which barely made me laugh at all, it was all style and little substance; too _vaudeville_ for me, maybe.
*3. What were the last three things you purchased?*
I bought five Tootsie Rolls and a Pinky bar from Cybercandy, a British-based international candy store. I’m hoping they’ll arrive sometime next week. I love Tootsie Rolls.
*4. What four things do you need to do this weekend?*
I don’t actually _have_ to do anything, besides going to a film festival screening tomorrow (Sunday) morning. And this.
*5. Who are the last five people you talked to?*
In descending order: my mum, my grandad, Benitha, Dave… I can’t remember who I’ve actually _spoken_ with before Dave. I’ve been living a sheltered existence.
