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

Friday Five #49

*1. If you had the chance to meet someone you’ve never met, from the past or present, who would it be?*
There are so many. I would love to meet Mike Watt. If I could go back in time, I’d love to meet both him and D. Boon together; that’s an equation for a great conversation.
*2. If you had to live in a different century, past or future, which would it be?*
I’m not sure about this one. Despite all the bad things, the 20th and–so far–the 21st centuries have been pretty damn good for us humans. The future, one hopes, will be even better. I’d like to see what the world will be like, say, 200 or 300 years from now.
*3. If you had to move anywhere else on Earth, where would it be?*
I would _love_ to visit Japan, in fact I’ve been toying with the idea of applying for the JET programme, but of all the places I’ve been so far I’d have to move to Canada. It’s a lot different to what I expected it to be, better even.
*4. If you had to be a fictional character, who would it be?*
Right off the top of my head, Har Mar Superstar seems to have a whale of a time, despite being a fictional character: a fact that no reviewer of his recent album in the British press seems to have realised. (NB: Sean Tillman (AKA Sean Na Na) and his ‘brother’ Har Mar are one and the same person.)
*5. If you had to live with having someone else’s face as your own for the rest of your life, whose would it be?*
Oh dear, now this is a real toughie… my girlfriend’s got a thing for Dr. Carter off of ER so _maybe_ him. If I had to.
