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

I’m willing to give this another go, but it remains one of the few films I’ve left part-way through, out of pure boredom > @ArrowFilmsVideo #tweet

###

I think this thread gets it spot-on regarding what’s happening, and what’s about to happen: paying for a merry Xmas with a decidedly unhappy New Year > @Antcon7062 #tweet

###

I concur. This is absolutely rotten. Forget ‘history won’t be kind…’ etc; right now the BBC is a propaganda mouthpiece for hatred > @KatyMontgomerie #tweet

###

I read about this match in PWI of all places, the August 1992 issue I think? > @BAHUFMW > @MacDara #tweet

###

I ordered mine today; it’s the only wrestling periodical I consider a must-get > @atomic_elbow #tweet

###

This isn’t quite how it happened, but it says a lot about the company’s public perception that most people assumed she was fired by tweet > @OSWreview #tweet

###

Had to pull the trigger on this since I missed out before and regretted it > @SKiNGRAFT_Rex #tweet

###

I’m no good for music recommendations this week but this thread should see you right > @mike_mcgb #tweet

###

“Nick?… Niiiiick?!… You come down here this minute Double Nickels on the Dime!” > @lfchamy #tweet

Great thread on the good stuff at Lidl. Sometimes their fresh veg can be a bit ropey but everything else? 👌🏼 > @ProperFood_ie #tweet

###

The Horse Lords slot repeats in a little over two hours from now. And if you tune in 30 mins before you’ll catch MC Yallah’s set > @MacDara #tweet

###

Make sure you click through to behold the best Bandcamp Daily headline ever > @Bandcamp #tweet

###

We’ve been told Govt listens to the experts so let’s see how that goes > @MichealLehane #tweet

###

Can’t believe this one got no traction. Is 9.30am too early in the day or something? > @MacDara #tweet

###

IKEA monkey. Like, even the provenance of the coat deserves a mini-series at least > @brendan_mcaleer #tweet

###

It’s a shame May doesn’t like the first ANOES, but I think we can all agree that the second one is Good Actually > @Nyxfears #tweet

###

Browning meat is apparently anathema in Irish cuisine so Irish stew, coddle et al can go straight in the bin > @notreallyjcm #tweet

###

Even with Ira’s guitar freakouts, Yo La Tengo provided a perfectly reasonable experience, three times in 12 months > @tabsout #tweet

###

I damaged my hearing (no tinnitus, thankfully) seeing J Mascis + The Fog in 2001, and have worn earplugs to shows ever since. I later saw Dinosaur Jr on two occasions which were tame by comparison > @droog811 #tweet

MacDara: That’s me 10/10 / Mac: Allowable from friends 8/10 / McD: I’ve outgrown it now but will let it slide 7/10 / Dara: What my family calls me 5/10 / Conroy: You’ve…decided MacDara’s my surname ’cause it has Mac in it, haven’t you? -10/10 > @MacDara #tweet

###

I still can’t tell whether they’re spoofing or really believe the nonsense they spout. Either way it’s awful > @BBCNewsnight #tweet

###

Harris Yulin in Death of a Salesman, if he counts as famous > @maxthegirl #tweet

###

Does WWE not realise their independent contractors aren’t portraying their wrestling characters when they’re on streams, etc? > @SeanRossSapp #tweet

###

I only got a few things this Bandcamp Friday: @numerogroup’s Mohinder reissues, and Noël Akchoté’s discography deal > @porter_esq #tweet

###

A holosuite accident leads to Moriarty gaining access to DS9’s systems, and facing a battle of wits with Constable Odo > @JoeSondow #tweet

###

Odo is at first pleased when Guinan opens a bar opposite Quark’s, but her mysterious backstory draws his suspicion… > @JoeSondow #tweet

###

More evidence that Irish Times courts stories aren’t subbed > @IrishTimes #tweet

###

Sharing this for any no wave aficionados I know who haven’t yet heard and might be in a position to help > @JCContortions #tweet

Really looking forward to the online Tusk Festival; check out this incredible lineup > @tusk_music #tweet

###

I cry foul at the inclusion of The Futureheads (and Maximo Park) on this list! > @alan_maguire #tweet

###

Gaspar Noé’s Irréversible, I think. It’s as unflinching as its reputation suggests but they didn’t see the latter half, steeped in sadness > @c0mmunicants #tweet

###

I’ve seen so many of these; do drivers think blocking the footpath is a loophole to avoid getting done for parking on double yellows? > @susy_butler #tweet

###

I passed this couple again on the way home from the shops just now, but this time they moved into single file > @MacDara #tweet

###

There goes my theory they were recycling an IP they already owned from the WCW purchase > @411wrestling #tweet

###

John Carpenter’s The Thing; it gives me profound ‘I don’t want to be here any more’ feelings > @AlishaGrauso #tweet

###

The problem with this poll is that it deals in absolutes, and the result only raises further questions (Why do you feel that way? What about the state of the industry brought you to that conclusion?) > @allan_cheapshot #tweet

###

We already knew they were obsessed with tweets thanks to @Tupp_Ed but… What an utter waste of resources > @ellenmcoyne > @MacDara #tweet

###

Brilliant thread on the quality of content Channel 4 used to put out in the (really not so distant) past > @zinovievletter > @MacDara #tweet

###

The prospect of trying to watch this on the RTÉ Player seems like an episode of Seinfeld in and of itself > @RTEplayer #tweet

###

Numero Group (who released the excellent Unwound discography box set) with a thread on Vern Rumsey, RIP > @numerogroup #tweet
