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

If you’re queueing at a reopening shop today, you do you. But if you’re not observing social distancing, I reserve the right to judge you into oblivion #tweet

I was at (most of) this performance, it was fantastic and now you can hear it too > @Weekertoft #tweet

###

The hair clippers I ordered a lifetime ago also showed up this morning. Everything’s coming up Milhouse! #tweet

###

The watering can I ordered so I can kill some garden weeds finally arrived, after 17 days #tweet

Listened to that there new Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever album last night. Really dig the first half, love the tense rhythm section (great bass tone, too). Second half sags for me with too much balladry #tweet

###

Hate to break it to you, but this country already has social distancing issues. There’s a reason why the R rate isn’t close enough to zero > @rtenews #tweet

###

I can’t with this government, it’s the dumbest move, no one cares any more #tweet

###

Question: would it be libellous to call out a local supermarket for not enforcing social distancing, creating a public health hazard? #tweet

###

I'm willing to bet 90% of the protestors have seen Freddy Got Fingered. It is so well-made that it bounces around in your brain and burrows in, forming a dominant go-to pattern for your thinking. > @AntoMcG #tweet

###

Finally! Who was the genius responsible for this screen blight in the first place? > @verge #tweet

###

Leo speaking to the comfortable vote, ‘they get everything for nothing’ crowd here. Just spend a week in any DP centre, oh taoiseach… > @gavreilly #tweet

###

If you’re at a loss as to who’s doing what when Bandcamp waives its revenue share tomorrow, here’s a list of labels and their plans > @Bandcamp #tweet

###

I had a bad feeling about the Drake Maverick thing from the week it started, and knowing he won the interim title shot confirmed it. I think Drake’s a good guy, but his part in this is… not so good > @davidbix #tweet

###

The Captain Beefheart selection on Apple Music is weird. Ice Cream for Crow but no Doc at the Radar Station; no Trout Mask Replica (!) but they’ve got deleted-for-decades Lick My Decals Off, Baby #tweet

###

So I’m walking home from the shops, and an elderly (but clearly perfectly mobile) couple is approaching me on the footpath, taking up most of it… > @MacDara #tweet

###

Headed to Dublin next week (it’s an essential journey) and I’ve got two questions: How busy are early morning trains on the Belfast-Dublin line? And would I have any trouble getting a taxi at Connolly at say 7am? #tweet

###

Wrong headline. Try ‘American cities become battle zones as police use excessive force against racial justice protests’ > @IrishTimes #tweet
