Deep into the promo for the new Mamaleek and my first impression remains: they view the American diner through a Lynchian lens > @MacDara #tweet

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 #tweet

###

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 #tweet

###

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 #tweet

###

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

###

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

###

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

###

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 #tweet

###

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 #tweet

###

Anyone here get anything shipped transatlantic from the US via Asendia? Tracker says ‘arrived at destination’ but if I had it I wouldn’t be asking > @MacDara #tweet

###

Waiting for our Steam Deck delivery like waiting for Santa to come down the chimney > @MacDara #tweet

###

The new black midi LP arrived today (it’s great) and my copy of The Inalienable Dreamless is finally in the post, five months later than scheduled > @MacDara #tweet

###

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 #tweet

###

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 #tweet

###

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 #tweet

###

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 #tweet

###

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

###

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 #tweet

###

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

###

Let’s interrogate what “affordable” means here. Dublin is hardly lacking for hotel space, but ThE mArKeT turned to surge-pricing for post-Covid* desperation tourism > @rtenews > @MacDara #tweet

###

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 #tweet

###

QQ: if one were to buy Greggs sausage rolls in London, could one bring them to Ireland on a plane in a carry-on bag? > @MacDara #tweet

###

My new MacBook Air arrived this morning and it’s currently updating, so I can regale you with the story of why I needed to get it > @MacDara #tweet

###

Watching 1990: Bronx Warriors which has a, well, loose interpretation of NYC geography > @MacDara #tweet

###

Also, Rampage is on at 10.30pm which is a gift, let me tell you > @MacDara #tweet

###

Ah, Phoenix Park discourse! Doing an ableism by rebranding your convenience as ‘accessibility’, is it? > @MacDara #tweet

TIL the Minutemen’s first gig was on the day I was born > @MacDara #tweet

###

Right, that’s flights and a room booked for Jawbox in London this June. If it’s postponed again I guess it’ll be an expensive record-shopping trip > @MacDara #tweet

###

My copy of the SST book arrived so that’s what’ll be keeping me occupied every night this week > @MacDara #tweet

###

I sense a weirdly needy desperation for Ireland’s assistance to the people of Ukraine to be recognised on the world stage. It’s like they never heard the phrase ‘a good deed is its own reward’ > @MacDara #tweet

###

Got an AeroPress after years of thinking about it and… hmm. The cold brew instructions don’t seem to work? The water runs right through when I’m stirring and the results are weak at best > @MacDara #tweet

###

Anyone else in Ireland with no 3 service at all? I’ve seen the notice about data issues but my phone can’t even find the cell network > @MacDara #tweet

###

Watched the Supercard of Honor pre-show last night and it was pretty obvious they were using AEW’s TV crew just from the way it was shot and directed > @MacDara #tweet

###

I’ve only listened to a fraction of the new Helms Alee but it’s really grabbing me > @MacDara #tweet

Who do I complain to about the #TFIGo app? They say “don’t activate too far before travel” but they don’t say “must be within 90 mins”. Typical Ireland, what a joke > @MacDara #tweet

###

Ordered the new one. But honestly struggling to understand why it costs nearly €140 more here than in the US. That’s a 36% markup > @MacDara #tweet

###

No walkies for me today with that rain, but if you’ve been following my Strava (all two of you) you’ll know I’ve been getting out there > @MacDara #tweet

###

Topped up my Cruel Nature digital collection this Bandcamp Friday, and the money’s going to a good cause > @CruelNature > @MacDara #tweet
