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


Tag: retweet

I grew up near Bull Island, and currently live near an estuary; I see the difference. To think the curlew I knew in such numbers are almost gone is unconscionable. Please sign this petition > @Ciaraioch #tweet

###

This is me. I mean, I’ve never been officially tested for it, but yeah > @RealFPJr #tweet

###

Took the plunge and finally signed up to Wrestle Universe; now I’m spending my Saturday night watching joshi, like I wished I could do in the ’90s > @W_UNIVERSE_eng #tweet

###

Rock for Light back on sale at Juno; just snapped mine up. Maybe yesterday was a blip? No one else is getting it in, it seems > @MacDara #tweet

###

Got the second-last clear w/splatter LP, lucky me! Now, will it be 33 or 45rpm? I mean, the album’s only 17 minutes long > @Willowtip > @MacDara #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

###

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

###

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

###

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

###

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

###

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

###

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

###

The Jungle Book at the Fairview Grand; I hated it, the sticky floors, the screaming kids. My cinema-going preferences (and bugbears) were fixed at an early age > @juliacmarchese #tweet

###

Pfizer here. First shot? Muscle pain in arm for three days; only hurt if I lifted or stretched it. Second shot? Similar pain, but was gone a lot sooner. Don’t know if either made me tired; it was humid af so I was shattered anyway. Even if I had it worse, sure beats Covid > @Mavumavu91 #tweet

###

You mean the personal responsibility that your govt has comprehensively failed to demonstrate? That personal responsibility? > @rtenews #tweet

###

I mean, this is the crux of WWE’s issues, isn’t it? They know they have a problem, but they’ve got the wrong reason > @TrevorDame #tweet

###

When a politician says they’re “committed” to doing anything, it means nothing of the sort. Actions, not words; do it or no > @Elaine_Loughlin #tweet

###

Watching all these videos together, the sexist commentary really stands out > @MacDara #tweet

###

Ireland as a whole is in denial about a lot of things; the collapse of the Gulf Stream might be the one thing we can’t do anything about > @markham #tweet

###

I didn’t like Censor so much, but Hugh shares his thoughts on why he did here > @thumped #tweet

###

John Brutal. I mean Bruton. But seriously, who looks to Irish establishment politicians for examples of leadership and management? 🤣 > @jonnyfallon #tweet

###

Okay, you twisted my arm, I’ll add one more Liger fig to my collection > @RingsideC #tweet

###

Turns out, it only made my arm useless for 24 hours and the soreness is mostly gone > @MacDara #tweet

###

Hangman Page’s story is a simple one, really; simple stories work best in wrestling. It’s the commitment that makes the difference > @ChrisBrosnahan #tweet

###

My introduction to MxBx here; No Disco used to play the vid for ‘Free the Bee’ > @melt_banana #tweet

###

Curious that with fewer than 3 days to go, there are no timetables on the actual Dublin Bus website for the new H Spine. Doesn’t bode well… > @MacDara #tweet

###

Not to worry, it is indeed a factory-fresh Xbox Series X which is currently eating up our bandwidth with downloads > @MacDara #tweet

###

Parcel arrived this morning; I haven’t actually opened the box yet so it could be full of rocks for all I know > @MacDara #tweet

###

I share the exasperation of every tweet in this thread > @Sarklor #tweet

###

Has any gaming media even reported on this? I know, E3 yadda yadda, but the all-round silence is pretty fishy, y’know? > @MacDara #tweet

###

Four hours to download a 25MB RealVideo file of Sleater-Kinney’s ‘You’re No Rock N Roll Fun’ > @Sosowski #tweet

###

Literally just a screengrab from Google Maps and I get more likes than I’ve had on anything for a while > @MacDara #tweet

I was hoping to find Sunwatchers in this selection and I wasn’t disappointed > @Bandcamp #tweet

Just got confirmation that Jawbox’s London show’s been bumped to June next year > @MacDara #tweet
