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


Now the Music app has suddenly decided to ‘lose’ my mp3s and I have to reimport the entire folder ffs > @MacDara #tweet

###

Chrome’s new thing about hiding folders and subdomains in the address bar…whose idea was that? Because it’s a really bad one #tweet

###

STARDOM are live-streaming classic matches on their YouTube channel if you’re at a loss for something to do this Saturday morning #tweet

###

Got this when it came out and I think I saw them live for the first time around then, too. Makes me feel very old, but Alan and Mimi haven’t aged a day > @brooklynvegan > @MacDara #tweet

###

Just found out our other next-door neighbour died six weeks ago, from Covid-19 as I understand it #tweet

###

Blue Monday isn’t a thing this year, I’ve noticed. Probably because it’d be a bad look for travel companies to flog getaways in the middle of a pandemic #tweet

###

Watching last night’s Hard to Kill PPV. Impact’s canned crowd noise > WWE’s #tweet

###

Remember when they used the WrestleMania VIII ring aprons and banners for like the next five years? Getting those vibes from 37, gotta say > @cagesideseats > @MacDara #tweet

###

I didn’t even see the movie but the poster for A Nightmare on Elm Street Part 2 (you know the one) set off a deep-seated terror of Freddy Krueger > @ThatEricAlper #tweet

###

I still can’t get over the fact Tay Conti was in the WWE system four years and they did nothing with her, then just four months in AEW and she’s come along in leaps and bounds #tweet

###

Amazon Prime’d myself a bottle of tomatillo salsa on the 1st; it didn’t ship until the 7th, went into ‘customs clearance’ on the 8th and finally arrived today, the 14th > @MacDara #tweet

###

That ‘distress’ is the feeling of guilt at being culpable in the abuse of countless women and girls. It’s time to pay for these crimes > @IrishTimes #tweet

###

Would love to spend my evening relaxing but I have to walk to the shops in the rain because there are too many stupid, careless people around the rest of the time > @MacDara #tweet

###

Today’s post had Scott Colby’s amazing (and somehow only?) LP, Slide of Hand > @MacDara #tweet

###

Daisy Hill might be ‘over the border’ but it’s only 24km by road from my house. Across the island, the handling of this crisis has been a disaster for months > @JustinMcNu1ty > @MacDara #tweet

###

The Watt List circa 2000, before it moved to Yahoo! Groups even. Made acquaintances I still have now, but only ever met one other member IRL > @Humanstein #tweet

###

Too little, too late #tweet

###

Ugh, Lidl customer service rang me about the incident last week and I had to relive the whole thing in my head and now I want to crawl in a hole 🕳 #tweet

###

Wish I could say I was surprised about what’s happening in DC right now but that is, as many have predicted, what happens when you coddle white racists > @MacDara #tweet

###

First day back at work in 2021 wasn’t so bad after all #tweet

###

Really fills me with confidence that the people running our country are in such denial about schools as a hotbed of virus transmission. Real geniuses at work there > @MacDara #tweet

###

Caught up on yesterday’s Tokyo Joshi show this afternoon; it’s a bit good #tweet

###

My anxiety is through the roof after having to yell at a group of ignorant dawdlers to stop crowding the entrance of the supermarket I was trying to leave. How’s your Monday going? > @MacDara #tweet

###

Boy am I glad I booked off work today and tomorrow for Japanese WrestleMania #njwk15 > @MacDara #tweet

###

I was back at work for two days last week and I’m not on again till Wednesday this week but I’ve still got that dread you’re all sharing so thanks #tweet

###

The first indie show I ever went to had a CZW title match but I’ve never actually seen a CZW show till now and… how do you people watch this stuff? #tweet

###

I keep seeing advice tweets for Irish users of Amazon UK (switch to DE, more or less) but nothing that factors in the way many Prime members use the site > @MacDara #tweet

###

Rather than fall asleep to a wrestling podcast, I thought I’d change it up for 2021 and fall asleep to the Highspots Twitch channel #tweet

###

The week started with outpourings of grief and love in my timeline for Brodie Lee. It ends with the same for MF DOOM #tweet

###

I had a ticket to see OXES once, but for whatever reason I didn’t go. Anyway, to make up for that I’ve got the remaster of their first album and it rules #tweet

###

I’m usually fine with dramatic licence, but even I thought the Cro-Mags shirt in Bridgerton was a bit much #tweet

###

Been spinning this one a lot the last few days. If you’ve ever heard the original mix test pressing, this redux is vastly superior > @MacDara #tweet

###

No, I can’t with the Brodie Lee news. It’s not right #tweet

###

It might not be much to you, but I’m grateful I got to enjoy Xmas dinner on the actual day for the first time since 2017 #tweet

###

As the date dictates, here’s your annual message from the good people of Saccharine Trust > YouTube #tweet

###

TIL the ‘Da Vinki’ twins are wrestlers? And Colt Cabana of all people introduced them to TikTok? Everything’s a work #tweet

###

It’s been months and months and months and I am sick of most everyone, govt and public alike, not giving a shit about how to properly act on or behave in this pandemic > @MacDara #tweet

###

Happy Wednesday! I’m off the day job for a week, and I got a Secret Santa card from one of my new colleagues. Not a bad aul’ day so far > @MacDara #tweet

###

Bobby Duke isn’t the only reason to keep on going. But it’s one of them > @ScaredyCatsYT #tweet

###

Today’s post had the 2013 vinyl remaster of Sugar’s Copper Blue and Beaster. Getting this was a good idea. Do you see? #tweet

###

I don’t believe it: after an entire month in postal limbo, my US Maple LP is on the move again! > @MacDara #tweet

###

This is the worst news. I didn’t know Lync, but Love as Laughter were a deadly band. RIP Sam Jayne > @pitchfork #tweet

###

It’s that time of year when I surprise myself at how much worse my handwriting has got #tweet

###

Sure lookit, Tomb Mold are deadly, this song is good, but if ever the ‘make it sound slick for radio’ mix was a redundant move… > @20buckspinlabel #tweet

###

So, this thing I ordered from the US that arrived in Dublin nearly a month ago and disappeared between the plane and An Post: would it be held up in customs? And who would I contact to find out? #tweet

###

Just done watching TakeOver. The last five minutes of the men’s War Games were brilliant but it was far, far too long, again. The women’s match was more consistent and engrossing, and much better paced #tweet
