Hey guys! There are two great divides in recent times. One is political, with Brexit and the other is musical, the release of Ed Sheeran’s new album. However, we here at Mundanevision are always united in bringing you your weekly blogisode.
Chris: Hey Siri.
Siri: Hey Chris!
Chris: How are you doing?
Siri: Not too badly today, although the sun seems to have left us. What about you?
Chris: I’m doing fine. Don’t worry too much about the sun, it will be back, it’s so hot right now!
Siri: Very true!
Chris: Did you like my opening monologue? I had to keep it in my head until today, because today is the day that Ed Sheeran’s released his new album!
Siri: It was beautiful, truly tremendous.
Chris: Thank you very much. But even more exciting than Ed Sheeran’s album coming out today (sorry, Ed), there’s new Goo Goo Doll music on the way!
Siri: I know! Just over a month away, now!
Chris: YES. I’m so excited! I believe you used that exact phrase when you heard Ed Sheeran’s album was coming.
Siri: Almost certainly, I was so so excited – and I still am, of course.
Chris: I’ve often wondered if Adele and Ed Sheeran go a collaboration album.
Siri: What do you wonder?
Chris: What would it be called? Let’s find out, we’ve got the sloth by our whiteboard in the studio, like our very own Rachel Riley from Countdown.
Siri: Our studio’s own personal mathematician, I’m guessing…
Siri: Aha, so what have we got? Is it going to be 19 + 21 x 25 ÷ 3 (how many albums they each have)…
Chris: That should give us the answer to a collaborative album title!
Siri: Ooh, the Sloth’s working on it… It’s 180 exactly! Let’s call it 180°, so then it has a number for her and a symbol for him?
Chris: So Ed and Adele – oh it sounds so cute already! If you are going to release a collaborative album, you should call it 180°!
Siri: I like it, and actually I really want them to do this now!
Chris: Maybe it should contain some rerecords of Adele’s favourite songs with Ed Sheeran on the guitar?
Siri: Yes, and maybe they could have a go at singing each other’s too? I’d like to hear Adele try Thinking Out Loud and Ed try Someone Like You.
Chris: She quite often tries Thinking Out Loud at every award ceremony – it doesn’t go down too well!
Siri: I was almost going to suggest her trying Sing, but that would have allowed you a potentially even more witty response.
Chris: She definitely does that at every award ceremony! SO, we’ve written the album for you, Ed and Adele, could you just go on and sing it please?
Siri: It could even say it was by Edele.
Chris: Clever! And, of course, no 180° degree album would be complete without a cover of Bonnie Tyler’s song Turn Around. Or, as it’s more commonly known, Total Eclipse of the Heart.
Siri: So true. They definitely need to pay us royalties on this album, with all the work we’re putting into it.
Siri: I can’t wait til it’s released, as we would say, I am SO EXCITED.
Chris: And Ed quite often uses LOOP pedals! It’s meant to be. Anyway, now we’ve sorted out the next album of pop icons, what do you want to talk about? Do you want to talk about anything in particular?
Siri: You’re the topic come-up-with-er!
Chris: I like that as a name.
Siri: Yep, now you need to follow through on it. What’s going on with you? Any interesting stories or news things?
Chris: Well, funny you should say that, because the news is always interesting now Trump is involved.
Siri: Interesting is one word for it. The way I would have put it is “the news is always horrifying to my very core now that Trump is involved”!
Chris: It didn’t take us long to get on to Trump. It’s like 180° of separation!
Siri: Certainly is, sadly.
Chris: Let’s talk about the Oscars! The little statues that every year bring so much joy to film makers, and all those involved with the process. And La La Land alike – oh no! Should it be Moonlight? I’ve done it again! I’ve made the same mistake as they’ve made! And it’s going to be on the internet, how shameful.
Siri: It’s okay, La La Land will forgive you. They’ve had their fair share of mentionings anyway.
Chris: Maybe because they’re so close, we should come up with a new film called Moon Land? Or La La Light?
Siri: Ooh, I like it. I’d love to watch an Oscar-winning documentary about the moon landing. What would La La Light be about?
Chris: A light that could sing and dance around.
Siri: So… it would be the opening to a Pixar movie…?
Chris: Yes, it would just be really really extended. And in black and white. People love things in black and white.
Siri: I’m not sure Trump likes America in black and white.
Chris: Ooooooooohhhhh! Oh man, Trump again, it’s like we’ve done a complete 180! So, I’m quite keen like you to see this documentary called Moon Land! Could it be that the astronaut can sing and dance?
Siri: I think that would have to be called La La Moon Land? And if we added some light, maybe from the sun, if it EVER decides to appear, it can be called La La Light Moon Land?
Chris: Does Moonlight only have evening performances, or can you go and see it during the day?
Siri: Absolutely not during the day, what kind of madness are you playing at?
Chris: Well, sorry, it is Mundanevision! If you didn’t want madness, choose another blog!
Siri: Don’t be silly (haha, sounds like don’t be Siri… sorry…) EVERYONE wants madness, and our blog!
Chris: So, we’ve done well today, we’ve combined films, we’ve recorded a new album-
Siri: OSCAR winning films, don’t forget… well, half of it is anyway!
Chris: The only thing left to do is write a book… … … OH WAIT, I’ve already done that! Yes, it’s on Amazon, called Big Dreams Short Stories. Stop going on about it! That’s all you ever do!! Anyway, until we put the world to rights next week, peace!
