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

Godzilla: The Showa Era Films box set

Look at how gorgeous this artwork is. And the individual covers within the set are just as fantastic. It’ll make it hurt that bit more if it turns out this box set won’t be getting a European release/can’t be played on Euro Blu-ray players. #image

A collage featuring WWE wrestler Shinsuke Nakamura

Front page of the Guardian from 29 March 2017.

The front page of today’s Guardian. Given the creativity, they can be forgiven for accidentally Brexit-ing chunks of the Republic’s border counties (plus a bit of Wicklow, and a stretch of France). #image

Ruins Alone AKA Tatsuya Yoshida, by MacDara on Flickr.

Can't think of a better way to mark the renewal of my Flickr Pro account by posting this pic from the few I snapped at the Ruins Alone gig at the Twisted Pepper last September. If you ever get the chance to see Tatsuya Yoshida do his thing, do yourself a favour and don't miss it. #image
