    Any wrestling fans?

    Haven't watched NXT yet as I'm doing a last minute late shift this evening. I liked the AEW show and agreed on Schiavone! But as I said on Twitter, bringing in a MAGA arsehole like Jack Swagger is a problem for a supposedly inclusive promotion, since inclusivity precludes including fascists.

    That KENTA concussion looked nasty, however, and it's put me off watching the show on NJPW World.

    It's funny how he went from 'intense weirdo who would murder you with a cattle prod' to yuk-yuks within the space of a few months.

    Nice one! Putting this on my calendar now.

    What television series are you currently making your way through?

    I'm watching the Canadian version of The Amazing Race. I can never get enough of that formula. Also, Forged in Fire - basically Chopped for bladesmiths. I just finished Dead To Me on Netflix, it was decent. Netflix series often feel like Events too daunting to get into, but the cast make it...

    Minor Pleasures

    The Numero Group's going-out-of-the-CD-business sale closes tomorrow. I took the plunge and bought the 11-disc Unwound box set for half price. The postage is a bit mad coming from the States, but all in all it's only about €20 more than what I paid for the Husker Du box a couple of years ago.

    LIVE! Fixing live threads that aren't live at all

    I believe this is live updating, by the way. As in, I haven't had to refresh the page.

    I need to write one on a bowls player right now.

    LIVE! Fixing live threads that aren't live at all

    I just saw your tweet. I've got 80 minutes left in my subbing shift, they've got me on sport today so it's all puns and my brain isn't geared up for it at all.

    I'm replying to this in response to your tweet w/ link, does that help?

    The Man In The High Castle Season 4

    I binged the first two seasons last year and the third a few months ago. This will be a nice lead in to the return of The Expanse.

    Star Trek Picard

    All of these guest stars is obvious pandering to the likes of us who grew up with TNG. Well, at least we're getting The Expanse Season 4 in December.

    What are you a member of?

    I've got library cards for Dublin City and Fingal, and my NUJ membership card. Which remind me I need to apply for my press card, and find a hat I can stick it in like one of those old-timey hacks.

    Any wrestling fans?

    Wait, since you mentioned Tatanka, I just remembered my last time at the Basketball Arena was actually 2002, for the first Irish Whip Wrestling show! They ran two that day, I was at the matinee. I remember getting lost on the dual carriageway after getting off the bus at the wrong stop. I...

    I haven't been out there since my school was in some basketball tournament, close to 25 years ago.

    I probably would have gone myself it it wasn't on that far out (and wasn't on a Sunday). I was lucky enough to see Bandido a few months ago!

    Any wrestling fans?

    But like I said, they've dropped a lot of that now, they're cleaning up their act. That's a good thing! They really need to work on their show timings, though. They've been going five years, no excuse for that carry on when, say, Rev Pro in London (who've been around almost as long) go out of...

    Any wrestling fans?

    This is all my own personal experience, so take it with the requisite pinch of salt, but anyway: I went to two shows of theirs at the Tivoli (the nightclub, not the actual theatre) and they were awful experiences, mostly down to the crowd. There was so much cheap drink flowing, and the general...

    Glad you enjoyed yourself! I have my issues with OTT but their shows in bigger venues have been pretty good, even if they don't half go on late (I've had to miss the main events of all three I've attended).

    Minor complaints thread

    New PC arrived this morning with everything except the screws we needed to fit the graphics card we'd already bought on eBay. So that was a thing. Seems they're also an American type that you can't buy in any shops here. I mean, really. Luckily after rummaging around we found screws left over...
