The thing I’m most excited about with tonight’s #SurvivorSeries is the first time ever seeing a two-ring set-up at a WWE pay-per-view (sorry, ‘Premium Live Event’) > @MacDara #aside

After nearly seven hours I’ve finally copied my media HDD to a new SSD with twice the capacity and that’s smaller than my palm > @MacDara #aside

One of my two purchases for this Bandcamp Friday, and one I’ve had on my wishlist for a while > @orenambarchi > @MacDara #aside

Win for the weekend: thought the soundbar got frazzled by last week’s lightning but I just plugged it back in and it works! > @MacDara #aside

###

Drivers in Ireland ignore Belisha beacons anyway so this doesn’t make any practical difference > www.gov.ie > @MacDara #aside

My rating for #AEWAllOut: A+ for effort, a D for the booking. That ladder match is the worst thing AEW has ever done. Worse than the exploding ring. Worse than the Librarians > @MacDara #aside

###

Just watched the first two eps of The Rings of Power, which I didn’t expect to care about yet seems pretty good so far. But… > @MacDara #aside

###

I’ll never forget the look on Gary Barlow’s face when Katie Couric said her fanny was freezing on The Today Show > @ericdharvey > @MacDara #aside

Wild thunderstorm happening outside right now, maybe 18km and closing in > @MacDara #aside

Well, that trip to Dublin was a bust. Getting ripped off by the Luas was only the half of it > @MacDara #aside

###

Watching SummerSlam out of morbid curiosity and man, Kevin Dunn does not give a toss anymore, does he? > @MacDara #aside

###

Watching Doctor Mordrid, which the opening titles say was “based on an original idea by Charles Band”. Was that idea “I’ll rip off Doctor Strange”? > @MacDara #aside

###

This point, about people not wanting to change how they make their living, is worth bearing in mind when the current Govt has announced funding for coastal communities to do exactly that > @Tupp_Ed > @MacDara #aside

###

Tried the town’s Bulgarian takeaway for a change. I was, er, not a fan of the cheese and smoked meat gyuveche. But the chicken cavarma was very nice > @MacDara #aside

###

I love this bit; similar reasoning to their justification for Tubridy’s pay, that they didn’t want him poached by a competitor. I mean, what competitor? 😂 > @Tupp_Ed > @MacDara #aside

This trend is so depressing, and it’s based on the entirely false and patently absurd assumption that an athlete would be so driven as to change their gender just to get an edge over their competition > @sgevans > @MacDara #aside

Didn’t take me long to find the owner of this car, who indeed looks like the kind of person who would own a car like this > @hazechu > @MacDara #aside

Got a new cold brew jug which is currently in the dishwasher. I love my AeroPress but it makes terrible cold brew > @MacDara #aside

###

All I have to say on the MJF thing is that, unless there’s s’thing we don’t know about compensation for peripheral obligations, no-showing the meet & greet feels like an actual dick move, not a staying-in-character one > @MacDara #aside

###

I think we’re all in agreement that daa are the villains of the month, yeah? > @MacDara #aside

###

Minus five stars for our Tesco delivery this evening. Not the driver’s fault, but whoever fulfilled the order at the shop messed up big time > @MacDara #aside
