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


Apparently I’m a “far-left extremist globalist”, according to some bigoted gobshite #tweet

###

Slept better last night. Not great, but better. And the itching calmed down a lot today; Bee suggested balming with rooibos and it seems to have helped > @MacDara #tweet

###

No sleep two nights running and I still want to scratch my legs off but I managed to take a kind-of nap this morning so that’s a win, right? > @MacDara #tweet

###

So yeah, those insect bites? My legs are covered in massive incredibly itchy welts. Hydrocortisone cream and more antihistamines to the rescue, I hope > @MacDara #tweet

###

Almost missed the promo for the new Kowloon Walled City in my inbox! #tweet

###

Got bitten alive by invisible midges while mowing in the front garden yesterday evening. Now doing the back, oh joy! #tweet

Got my green Liger fig from @RingsideC in this morning’s post and, er, I think there’s something missing… > @MacDara #image

###

The otters are wonderful, but can we talk about the lord of the manor wearing a Neurosis shirt?? > @rtenews #tweet

###

Remember the old days? When people on here would talk like a pirate on the 19th of September? I miss that #tweet

###

I was only thinking the other day that I miss when AEW had their logo on the ring canvas, and then they go and make my dream come true on last night’s Rampage #tweet

###

Screw Radio. Didn’t even care it was basically an endless loop of Fatso Jetson’s ‘Bored Stiff’, El Bad’s Warp’ and that one Oxbow song > @intrnetdaughter #tweet

###

I’ve got a sudden urge to watch Rich Hall’s cinema documentaries. Are they on iPlayer or do I have to scrounge them up by … other means? #tweet

###

Come and See is phenomenal so I’m really looking forward to this > @TheFlenser #tweet

###

Different levels of fame here, but: Mike Watt (generous with his time and thoughts), Michael Wincott (unfazed by a credit card snafu) and Gerard Butler (20 years ago; seemed excited to be known, but in a sound way) > @DanDotLewis #tweet

###

Thread; our govt has no interest in the people’s needs, but every interest in maximising private profit > @RobJCurley #tweet

###

I see everyone’s positivity and I want to share it … I want WWE to prove me wrong, that they won’t screw over Big E #tweet

###

First time out on my bike in over a week and within minutes I was dangerously close-passed. It’s a disease, it really is #tweet

###

If all you’ve ever watched of wrestling is WWE—where all the kinetics are in the shaky/zoomy cam shots and flash cuts—I can see why other companies’ visual styles might look comparatively sedate and “overexpose how fake it looks” #tweet

###

The difference now is that back then, the WWF and WCW were competing for the same market: people who watch wrestling. WWE’s market today is B2B, and they’re making more money than ever (on paper) so there’s no incentive to change > @PuroPodcast > @MacDara #tweet

###

Someone please remind me I need to stop putting it off and pay & file my tax this month #tweet

###

Nice to see all the love for the reunion of a band named after a Minutemen lyric #tweet

###

As excited as anyone else for #AEWAllOut but I won’t get to see it till tomorrow evening so I should probably stay off Twitter starting now > @MacDara #tweet

###

Hey you know what? That Stardom pre-show match was great. More of that, please #njwgsDay1 > @MacDara #tweet

###

Antigen test arrived this afternoon … and it’s negative. Phew! > @MacDara #tweet

###

This is some seriously unethical BS and the Belfast Telegraph should be embarrassed for publishing it > @BelTel #tweet

###

I’ve woken up with a sore throat, which might be allergies but it’s also a symptom of Delta. So can I get tested? Not unless you’re gonna teleport me to Ardee > @MacDara #tweet

###

Full capacity on public transport from tomorrow? Nope. Nope nope nope nope nope #tweet

###

My first instinct when I saw the Charlotte/Nia Jax thing was “this is a work”. But who or what was it for, exactly? > @MacDara #tweet

###

Was terrified at the thought of my inbox this morning but it only took an hour or so to get things sorted #tweet

###

NWA EmPowerrr comes recommended by me. If you can overlook the production botches (and the presence of Bram) it’s a nifty showcase of wrestlers who happen to be women #tweet

###

So, real talk: what’s a 13” MacBook Pro going to do that a 13” MacBook Air can’t (other than cost €400 more)? #tweet

###

Somebody please dub the Art Attack theme over the new NXT intro and send it to @Maffewgregg thanks in advance #tweet

###

The replies to this thread! A lot of people don’t understand what “press credentials” mean, smh > TrentOsborneFS > @MacDara #tweet

###

Making the most of my holiday and staying up for Dynamite tonight #tweet

###

Everyone was talking about this peek into the AEW production truck last night and rightly so > @mookieghana #tweet

###

The oil man cometh #tweet

###

This copy of Up On The Sun that came in today’s post is an SST UK release. I wonder how many of those they pressed? #tweet

###

Nearly every ad break in SummerSlam has had something designed to get fans into debt, whether it’s NFTs or gambling or a credit card they don’t need #tweet

###

I’ve just seen SummerSlam results and, well, if you thought Jade Cargill squashing Kiera Hogan was bad… #tweet

###

I try not to swear so much on here, but absolutely fuck off with this > @MacDara #tweet

###

Soooo I missed the big #AEWRampage moment because casting on the Fite app buffers so badly. Lesson learned, I guess > @MacDara #tweet

###

I’ve got a week off from the day job. I’m not used to that, the whole “week off” thing #tweet

###

Went to the local Tesco on my lunch break for bits and bobs and I see the Irish are just gonna continue to ignore physical distancing, yeah? > @MacDara #tweet

###

Jesus Christ that Biden speech; I wasn’t expecting much but maybe a little more tact than rewriting 20 years of history and victim-blaming the Afghan people #tweet

###

There’s a lot in the timeline about Afghanistan today, but this sticks out. The west has no shame > @BBCSanaSafi #tweet

###

The housing crisis will continue, and worsen, so long as our govt puts its fealty to FDI above the people of Ireland > @RoryHearne #tweet
