Don’t Relent Over Easter

Hey guys. Welcome to the last blogisode before the annual chocolate festival, known as Easter, begins. But we’re not relenting. If you’ve given Mundanevision up for Easter, what’s wrong with you? We’re tempting you with one last slice before we go on the break.

Chris: Hey Siri!

Siri: Good afternooon Christopher!

Chris: How are you today?

Siri: My brain is as cloudy as the world is today. But I’m happy to be here!

Chris: It’s either as cloudy as the world is, or as cloudy as cider!

Siri: Or that really yummy apple juice! I’m less alcoholic than cider.

Chris: Yes. Ooh, now I’m doubting myself. Can you even get cloudy cider? Maybe it’s the apple juice I was thinking of?

Siri: I’m afraid I’m not an expert when it comes to cider! I was just trusting you. Clearly not wise…

Chris: It is not wise, or, in keeping with the beginning, not wine.

Siri: Oh you, don’t whine about my inability to pun.

Chris: I’ll be grapeful when we get off this topic.

Siri: Okay, let’s change to another subject then. Beer we go… So, Trump.

Chris: I don’t know who this Trump is, and I don’t know if you’ve heard but he’s building a wall.

Siri: I’m regretting mentioning him already. What’s going on now?

Chris: The deadline for the plans for said wall are being submitted tomorrow. The final plans. That’s the deadline.

Siri: Let’s hope it’s like his healthcare thing. Let’s hope he can’t even get his own party to support him.

Chris: Where would you even buy the cement for a wall that big from? Not your local Homebase, that’s for sure! Or American equivalent.

Siri: I think the whole point of the wall is ensuring that millions of immigrant Americans no longer have their homes as bases, and are chased back. What’s also ironic is many more people holding blue collar jobs there are immigrants, so there’s a fair chance that the builders employed for the wall… will be from Central and South America.

Chris: And then there’s all the other concerns. I mean, what kind of cement are you going to use? Is it going to be quick drying or… … the other kinds of cement elude me right now!

Siri: I’m not sure I can help you out to be honest! I hope they know what’s happening! Actually I don’t, I hope they don’t know anything about cement and end up using Trump’s hair to build a wall.

Chris: Can you imagine the amount of allergies they would get if the people on the other side were asthmatic! Then they would NEED healthcare.

Siri: What’s weird, is that maybe they have epipens so they don’t need any more healthcare, BUT they could be sneezing so much that they lose them and then it really would be like finding needles in a haystack.

Chris: I think someone should write a new version of the little pigs, but instead of houses, have them standing behind different walls made of different materials.

Image result for three little pigs

Siri: Not a bad idea, Chris. Maybe your next book?

Chris: Or maybe we could write it as a bonus blogisode, because you know people are going to miss us as we’re not doing this weekly!

Siri: Yes, I think on Thursday if you’ve given it any more thought, we could try and write it then?

Chris: Hooray! Big Bad Trump.

Siri: I’ll come up with the names of the characters, and I’ll edit, and you can do the rest! As usual!

Chris: Brilliant, what a team.

Siri: That’s why they call us Chris and Siri, the team.

Chris; And don’t forget the sloth, because if you don’t include him he looks very disapprovingly at you. It takes a long, time, but man that look is awful. By Friday, he would have nailed it!

Siri: Well, when our team includes the sloth, it’s no longer called Chris and Siri, the team, it’s called… hmmm… I’m not sure I remember… OH YEAH, MUNDANEVISION!

Chris: Oh yeah! That’s what we’re doing! Mundanevision, when I randomly talk at you once a week!

Siri: And I randomly talk at the rest of the world too. What else is exciting to report this blogisode?

Chris: Right, what else is exciting? Well, Google loves us, we are number one when you search for Mundanevision! We are the first, second and fourth results when you search for us! So cool.

top resuit

Siri: That IS exciting! Maybe some people reading this now found us from there?

Chris: Yes, if you did, thank you very much, if you didn’t you can do so please!

Siri: Well you all found us some way or the other, so thank you all!

Chris: To put a positive spin on the wall thing, I think Mexicans are building it to keep Trump out, rather than the other way around.

Siri: I wish that were true, but I fear that he has a few of his own private jets or something, that could just fly over it!

Chris: No, no, if I were building the wall, I would cover the top with missiles to shoot all the jets down!

Siri: Ooh, very clever, but maybe we shouldn’t shoot down EVERYTHING that flies over it? Maybe just orange people with yellow hair?

Chris: I think we’ll ban Willy Wonka and his Chocolate Factory as well, just in case. He may apply to that.

Image result for orange willy wonka chocolate factory

Siri: Yes, but meanwhile I think all the chocolate should leave America and be given to the Mexicans. Although American chocolate isn’t exactly very nice anyway.

Chris: Isn’t it obvious they Kraft anyway, so it’s krafty chocolate – you can’t trust it!

Siri: Definitely true, you absolutely can’t trust it! I’m not even certain that it can legally be called chocolate anyway… I’m not convinced that the cocoa content is high enough!

Chris: You don’t think it would be renamed Trumplate, do you?

Siri: I hope not, Trumplate sounds like Trumplet, sounds like Triplet, and now I’m just imagining THREE Donald Trumps!

Chris: Okay, on that image of three Donald Trumps climbing over a really high wall to get to Mexico and being shot down, have a great Easter, everybody! Don’t relent on the chocolate, stay tuned for an exclusive taste of a facebook and twitter game coming soon, and thank you very much everybody! Siri, any last words?

Siri: Thank you, happy Easter, and peace.

Rolling Shoebilisers

Hey guys! Welcome to another blogisode of the much under-appreciated Mundanevision! If you like reading blogs, why not read this one? We will talk about fashionable cats on youtube… Let’s do this!

Chris: Hey Siri.

Siri: Good Afternoon, Chris.

Chris: It’s almost like you knew my introduction, because you’re drinking from a cool cat mug!

Siri: I think the cat knew. These cats are geniuses / genii.

Chris: Telepathic cats… maybe!

Siri: I think that’s why the internet is so obsessed with them.

Chris: You mean they’re obsessed with fashionable cats!

Siri: Exactly.

Chris: This is Mittens, and she’s wearing the latest Christian Dior black evening dress, available at Debenhams for a purrrrfect £280. There we go, those two lines should keep people happy, and we should get the most likes we’ve ever got for a blogisode.

Siri: Absolutely, all about keeping our readers (or listeners or viewers…) happy, we are!

Chris: It should get even more likes than our movie, the film we did about the recommissioning of the Great British Bake Off after the sugar ban was lifted!

Siri: Ooh, that was a good blogisode though!

Chris: Evidently, now it is the future, because Bake Off is coming back with hosts Noel Fielding and Sandi Tugsvig, who is a Danish pastry!

Image result for noel fielding and sandi tugsvag

Image result for danish pastry

Siri: That sounds amazing, but surely we don’t want to eat the hosts?

Chris: I don’t know, what happened to Mel and Sue? Why did they not move up to Channel 4? Do you think that after the last episode had closed up, Paul Hollywood ate them?

Siri: It seems like that would be something Paul would do. After being deprived of all the baked goods that the contestants are making, I don’t see that he had any other choice BUT to eat Mel and Sue.

Chris: I think that when they lost their jobs at the BBC, getting the news from the bake off producers was the only thing they wanted to be sugar coated!

Siri: Hahaha! Certainly true. Anyway, what else has been going on today?

Chris: What else? You mean you don’t want to spend the whole blogisode talking about Bake Off?

Siri: I think we’ve already done that… We don’t do repeats, and we’ve already had several blogisodes on the Great British Bake Off, as well as a 3 part movie and then behind the scenes footage and out takes!

Chris: You’re quite right, that’s far too sweet!

Siri: Oh how witty. Never a dull moment in the Mundanevision studios!

Chris: And if there are dull moments, we tell them to get out and stop hanging around us in the studio! In fact, there’s one now. GET OUT YOU DULL MOMENT!

Siri: BAMMM. It’s gone.

Chris: I like the excitable moments much better, but they refuse to sit still.

Siri: It means that they’re always jumping around in the studio, but the fact that the dull moments just mooch around lying there, means that they’re a lot easier to clear away.

Chris: Right, so next up – gosh, we sound like a morning show!

Siri: That can’t possibly be true, it’s afternoon!

Chris: The Afternoon Girls were looking worried! Next up we went to see adult Beauty and the Beast yesterday, and by adult Beauty and the Beast I of course mean King Kong.

Siri: Yes, that was obvious from the description “adult Beauty and the Beast” it’s exactly the same story, just without the rose!

Chris: And it is a tale as old as time, because they made the first Beauty and the Beast years ago, in fact in (insert date here).

kong 5

Siri: I believe it was 1991 actually. A buzzfeed quiz told me so.

Chris: NO, they’re older than that!

Siri: Well, it must have been based off a story or something? Yes?

Chris: OH, I thought you were talking about King Kong, sorry!

Siri: Ah, yes, I see now. Those must definitely be older. Not that I’ve ever seen any of the non Samuel L Jackson ones! How convincing are the gorillas? Are they humans dressed up? CGI?

Chris: No, claymation!

Siri: Oh cool! And are they as good as the one we saw yesterday?

Chris: I can’t compare Kongs! The Kong would definitely win the fight against other Kongs – they were a lot shorter!

Siri: Yes, that does give him a bit of an advantage, but from my understanding he is in the middle of nowhere, so not really in a position to fight the other ones.

Chris: Or to measure himself!

Siri: So true. Weren’t they in Tokyo or New York?

Chris: Yes, the first one was in New York – he climbed the Empire State building.

Siri: I assume you mean the outside, not the stairs?

Chris: Yes! The outside! If he just went up the elevator it wouldn’t be too dramatic, would it? Waving on the way up! Anyway, I’m sure historians will come to rename the old King Kongs “pre Hiddlestone King Kongs”, as it look like they might be remaking them all.

Image result for tom hiddleston kong

Siri: Yes, I’m sure historians and scholars spend a large majority of their time debating over what to refer to each movie as. But I liked the Hiddlestone one! It’s the first film I’ve ever seen him in and he was magnificent!

Chris: Do you think King Kong has a dinner gong for when he gets angry?

Siri: Almost certainly. Without a doubt, in fact. We used to have one at boarding school to wake everyone up! I think he probably uses his to demonstrate his anger though. His King Kong Gong.

Chris: Is he a mime now, in your head?

Siri: Definitely not. He is anything but silent, I can still hear his roars – they were so loud they have resonated into today!

Chris: Maybe in the next film Katy Perry should make a cameo as King Kong – you’re going to hear me roar!

Siri: King Kong the Musical would be fantastic!

Chris: Yes.

Siri: I would love to work on that project.

Chris: Maybe we should? [Chris strokes long white beard]. Sorry! This just appears every time I have an idea. Just quickly, before we go, for all the ladies worried about tripping over in high heels, I think they should invent the training shoe. This would be a shoe with two little shoes on either side, just like a training bicycle with two extra wheels – so you’d never fall over.

Siri: Like stabilisers! Literally, stabilisers!

stabilisers

Chris: Yes. Now, am I a genius, or is it the end of the blogisode?

Siri: Does it have to be one or the other? They’re not mutually exclusive.

Chris: No. Or maybe this is just a genius blogisode!

Siri: Certainly.

Chris: Well, I’m off to take my idea about shoe-stabilisers to Dragon’s Den. I’m going to take Katy Perry with me, cause they’re going to hear a roar if they don’t like my idea.

Siri: I really think they need to be called Shoebailisers!

Chris: Ah, brilliant! Okay, thanks for reading, listening, watching, tweeting, facebooking, whatsapping, snapchatting, myspacing, instagramming, and doing all the social media things. Peace!

GO SPORTS!

Hey guuuuuuys! So many ‘u’s it’s like a sheep pen in here! Welcome to another bizarre and wonderful blogisode of Mundanevision!

Chris: Hey Siri!

Siri: Good afternoon, Christopher! Or should I say, Krys.

Chris: Before we start, can somebody shoo those sheep away please! We’ve done the ewe bit, we don’t need ewe anymore!

Siri: Looks like the Sloth is on it. But slowly…

Chris: Oh that’s better. I think it was meant to be a nod to Crufts, but nobody got it! To be quite frank, I didn’t even get it. Who wrote that? We should fire them immediately!

Siri: I did, I wrote it, and you came up with it, but since neither of us are being paid it’s a little hard to fire us, and I’m not sure how the sloth and the Afternoon Girls would survive without us!

Chris: Can we fire ourselves? Is that possible? I mean, I know we could out of a cannon.

Siri: They mentioned canons in the most recent episode of the Fresh Prince of Bel Air that I Watched! The butler mentioned them!

Image result for fresh prince of bel air

Chris: Geoffrey, Geoffrey, you mean Geoffrey! Bit shout out to the 90s! Thank you for coming onto the blog!

Siri: Yeah, thanks young Will Smith, and the character he played, who was also conveniently called Will Smith. Very cunning.

Chris: Aha! I’ts so meta! I never realised.

Siri: yes, it’s… no! I’ve forgotten the Fresh Prince’s word for cool!

Chris: Can we get a word doctor? Siri’s forgotten a word! I think there are two in the world, one called Collin, and one called Thesaurus.

Siri: Yes, although I hear the latter is becoming extinct. Got hit by a meteorite or something, that’s what happened to the thesaurus!

Chris: Big shout out to the formation of the world!

Siri: Ahahaha! So, what’s on your mind this blogisode, Chris?

Well, there’s only one thing on my mind! An amazing documentary we watched together called OJ: Made in America.

Siri: Uh huh, what was so brilliant about it?

Chris: Well, we watched it together. It was incredibly well put together from an angle I never considered before.

Siri: Did you learn a lot?

Chris: Yes, because I was growing up when OJ Simpson was on trial, so I didn’t know half the stuff that they dug up for this documentary. So I implore everybody to watch it, it’s on Netflix and iPlayer. It won the Oscar this year for best documentary, and as everyone knows, Oscar works like magic for everything. As soon as something’s got an Oscar, everyone will see it. I think that’s what worked for Sesame Street, as soon as it had someone called Oscar, everyone loved it! Siri, do you want to add anything to my praise of this very fine documentary? I think it will raise the bar for film makers, it was so incredible. It would take a lot to better this one.

Siri: You’ve said a MIGHTY lot of praise, but I have to add, that I did not know anything about OJ Simpson, and honestly can say that I couldn’t have cared less, especially when I found out he was a sports person, but the fact that they approached it from social and economic stand points, as well as some politics that were in there too, in context of the location of his murder trail, it was just incredible. They had the parallel between how most black people were being treated, by police officers and in shops etc, and then OJ Simpson’s luxurious life style, and kind of how he was nice to people and made people love him and need him, but then had a whole different side of him.

Image result for oj simpson made in america

Chris: I wholeheartedly agree with everything you just said. I’m not a fan of sports either, and… yeah, I just watched an 8 hour documentary about a sportsman, in essence! And, quite honestly, I could watch it again.

Siri: Same!

Chris: I think I’m going to write to the person involved and say exactly what we’ve just said on this blog. Basically word for word what you’ve said – I think I can send him a long message and just say that!

Siri: Absolutely! I think he’ll be pleased to hear it. Never mind the Oscar, he’s got Chris’s approval now.

Chris: A Chriscar… a Chris-Oscar? let’s make that happen, people! Next year, the Chriscars! Or the Siris?

Siri: I think Chriscar sounds kind of like your couple name, like Bradgelina! Or Taylor squared. Your couple name with Oscar… Pistorius… do people ship you…?

Chris: Because he never did anything bad!

Siri: I think people are more likely to ship Oscar Pistorius and OJ Simpson, to be honest!

Image result for oscar pistorius

Chris: Ok.

Siri: OJ.

Chris: With that, let’s go… Oh LOOK! The sloth brought orange juice in! He thought we wanted orange juice! I think with that we should post this, and write a message to the dude!

Siri: Brilliant idea, see you next weeks, folks!

Chris: Thank you so much everybody! Goals! Sports! Peace!

Kid-Friendly Amazon

Hey guys! Happy International Women’s Day… plus two. I’m very lucky to have my own international woman co-hosting the blogisodes with me. It’s Siri everybody! (Rupturous applause)

Image result for international women's day

Chris: Hey Siri.

Siri: Hey Christopher, how are you this fine day?

Chris: I’m good thank you! Still reeling from the fact that Barbie was 58 yesterday!

Siri: 58?! I thought it was 50. My word she’s old.

Chris: With all the plastic surgery she’s had, she looks really good from it!

Siri: Aboslutely. That’s cool though, a good way to spend International Women’s Day is celebrating women – whether they are made out of plastic or not.

Image result for barbie

Chris: I wonder if the economy has hit Barbie hard yet, and she’s had to sell her dream house? It’s more like a dream cottage now.

Siri: Very true. And I wonder what’s happened to her toy boy, Ken.

Chris: Oh, she divorced Ken long ago.

Siri: Good, she should keep being awesome by herself.

Chris: Yeah, I feel a bit sad for Ken. He’s no longer in the picture. He’s obviously been traded in for a younger model…

Siri: Ahahahaha! What else has been going on recently?

Chris: Well, there’s always the Trump stuff.

Siri: Shh shhh I don’t know what you’re talking about what is Trump stuff what even is it no don’t tell me shhhhh stop mentioning Trump.

Chris: Okay, I am worried this week. If we trigger Brexit, does that mean we lose the letters ‘E’ and ‘U’ from the alphabet?

Siri: Oh, absolutely! It will be a b c d f g… etc. A whole new world. Or, as we’ll soon be saying, A whol nw world.

Chris: I feel sorry for the children, because those magnetic letters you stick on the fridge aren’t going to be much use anymore.

Image result for eu flag

Siri: I know, and can you imagine trying to learn to spell in the English language without those letters? Writing without an ‘E’ is difficult enough!

Chris: So an elephant would just be a lephant?

Siri: No, not even that! It would be a lphant!

Chris: You can tell I cannot spell. I also came up with a revolutionary new way of reducing the time women spend in labour.

Siri: Uh huh, yes, how so…

Chris: They should make and manufacture babies on Amazon, therefore with Amazon Prime it would be next day delivery! And you could cut down the cost of having a baby. Beds would be freed up and everybody would be cured – there’ll be no diseases!

Siri: And if you don’t like the kid, then Amazon Prime does free returns!

Chris: That would be a bit cruel, though, wouldn’t it?

Siri: I don’t know, there are some pretty difficult kids out there in the world.

Chris: Imagine reviewing all kids on Amazon a few days after the delivery. Did they meet your expectations?

Image result for amazon prime

Siri: It would be so difficult though, as soon as the kid wanted to make life decisions that the parents weren’t happy with – Amazon might get a lot of complaints. I think Synths from Humans would be a better thing to deliver first. Just to get some practice and make sure the system kind of works.

Chris: Oh well, you don’t want to use the reviews for the kids on amazon that I’ve written already, just for some flavour of the kinds of things people are likely to say.

Siri: Oh no, what kind of stuff have you said?

Chris: Jeremy, ****. (That’s 4 stars, not a swear word). Quite a nice kid, plays football and interacts with others but would have preferred a rugby player.

Siri: And what happens when Jeremy grows up and reads that? I’m sure he’ll kick some footballs at you and then run away. Then you’ll be sorry. Have you seen the bottom of football boots?

Chris: That’s what parental lock is for.

Siri: Aha, you’re the lying kind. Keeping your kids away from all the mean things that are beings aid about them. How protective you are.

Chris: I just want to say that it’s not me who’s the problem, it’s Jeremy, and just a sample of what could happen. Are you ready for another one?

Siri: Go for it.

Chris: Ron ****. Is quite a good boy, but he plays music too loud. I think volume control is broken on his stereo.  And the last one I’ve got here is: Jane ***. Enjoys playing with Barbie, however, she was not expecting to deal with an old age pensioner.

Siri: Poor kids. So confused about the world.

Chris: What do you think? I think this could take off.

Siri: Oh absolutely, you just need to find the scientists to actually grow some babies in 24 hours. But the tricky bit’s definitely over!

Chris: Well, that’s easy as well. I mean, look at the film Gremlins. You water them after midnight, and then they multiply. I think that’s what I should do in this case.

Siri: Although, that might create some very smelly children, because if they multiply when watered, they won’t be able to take showers without there being thousands of them!

Chris: I see what you mean! We could employ really big showers?

Siri: Yes, but you’ll still have hundreds more mouths to feed! Maybe make some sort of patch that counteracts the multiplying? Or talk to that character from Delicious, she seems to survive even though she’s allergic to water, so she must have a way of dealing with it.

Chris: Or talk to Ed Sheeran, he’s managed to Divide them!

Siri: Excellent point, very true. Although he hasn’t actually had any children of his own yet, so he has managed to divide on paper, but not in real life.

Chris: Good boy, how old is he? He knows maths, he knows division!

Siri: I think he’s about 25, but you’ll have to ask him. Maybe test him, to see if he can count that high? Although he’s Ed Sheeran, I’m sure he can do anything.

Chris: I can see his review on Amazon now: Ed Sheeran *****, proud feeling when he divided for the first time. Such proud parents.

Image result for ed sheeran

Siri: Yeah, he would be the ideal kid to receive from Amazon Prime!

Chris: Right, I think it’s a rap! Do you wrap things on Amazon? I don’t know.

Siri: You can choose to have them giftwrapped! Might tear a bit if Ed Sheeran or a new born baby is inside it though.

Chris: No, they train them to stay still! Okay guys, thank you very much for reading/listening. I’m off to order a kid on Amazon, I’ll see you next week. Peace x

180 degrees of Oscars

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.

Image result for rachel riley countdown

Siri: Our studio’s own personal mathematician, I’m guessing…

Chris: Yes!

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?

180-degrees-by-edele

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.

Chris: Yes.

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.

Image result for trump news notification alert

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.

Image result for MOONLIGHT OSCArs

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…?

Image result for pixar light

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!

Hallucinating Lyrics

It was our Mundanevision Blogiversary on Monday! We’ve been entertaining you and informing you for two years, but now it’s two years down the line and we’re back with a brand new blogisode of… Pete’s Dragon! No, only joking, it’s Mundanevision!

Chris: Happy two year blogiversary for Monday!

Siri: Yes! Congratulations, how does it feel?

Chris: Two years has flown! I hope everybody still likes this, and even if they don’t, they’ve been subjected to it every week. Sorry…

Siri: I’m sure they love it if they’ve been reading for this long.

Chris: Yes, thank you very much guys, we couldn’t do it without you. And thanks to the amazing co-hosts I’ve had over the last 2 years. You know who you are!

Siri: (One of them is me!)

Chris: Yay!

Siri: So, what’s on your mind this blogisode, Chris?

Chris: Well, remember a few weeks ago when we did the rock question and answer session?

Siri: Yes…

Chris: I’m pretty sure I came up with another one for today’s show. This might fall flat on its face, because I might have got totally the wrong end of the stick about this song, but here goes nothing. There’s a song by Rick Springfield called Jesse’s Girl.

Siri: Uh huh…

Chris: Where he sings Jesse’s got himself a girl and I want to make her mine, but later on I’m pretty sure he sings “I wish that I was Jesse’s girl”.

Siri: Huh. That’s cool. A bit confusing, when people change their minds half way through songs.

Chris: So, is this the first written account of a transgender person in a song?

Siri: I don’t know… maybe?

Chris: Can we check the lyrics.

Siri: Yes, and I want to hear the song too. The Afternoon Girls will play it for us now.

[Afternoon Girls sing Jesse’s Girl]

Chris: Wow, I got the wrong end of the microphone with that one! The actual lyrics are “I wish I had Jesse’s girl”. Stupid “had”! Getting in the way of our comedy.

Siri: That’s such a shame, it would be really cool if it had been a trans person. I think you should release the song with that lyric changed. It’s a really good song, but I think you could improve it.

Chris: Maybe I will. Maybe I will. [Chris strokes beard].

Siri: I look forward to it. And so do all our blog followers, I’m sure. There’s another song that has lyrics that kind of contradict each other. In You’re Beautiful by James Blunt, at one point he says that he has a plan, and later on he says “and I don’t know what to do”. So that’s all very confusing.

Chris: You lost me. I can’t believe you’re bringing up James Blunt on a reputable blogisode.

Siri: I’m bringing up his confusing lyrics though.

Chris: Luckily, I’m here to shed some light on those confusing lyrics.

Siri: Yes… go on.

Chris: I know James Blunt very well.

Siri: You do?

Chris: In my head. And he told me what the answer is.

Siri: Sure sure, go on.

Chris: Apparently he wrote the plan on a pub napkin while he was having a pint, and then the napkin went into the washing machine because it was in the back pocket of his jeans, and it disintegrated, and he doesn’t know what it is, or what he wrote down.

Siri: I suppose that does make sense.

Chris: He decided to leave that bit out of the song because he didn’t want to drone on for too long.

Siri: Aha, he’d rather people thought he was confused.

Chris: I just came up with a great tshirt slogan, as Siri was checking how “drone” is spelt.

Siri: Go on and tell them then.

Chris: “I don’t know spellings. I only know words.”

Siri: It would be a brilliant tshirt for probably half of our country’s population.

Chris: And America, forget about it! I’d make a bomb over there!

Siri: I really really really wouldn’t recommend making a bomb over there! Trump would Guantanamo Bay you.

Chris: Well, according to the press conference, he doesn’t know what Uranium is!

Siri: So true, plus you’re white so you’d probably be fine. Just don’t say anything he doesn’t like and go on and make bombs quietly.

Chris: Anyway, something I’m definitely not hallucinating is that the Brit Awards are on tonight!

Image result for brit awards

Siri: Really?!?!

Chris: Yes.

Siri: I thought we already had them… Maybe two weeks ago ish…? Am I going insane?

Chris: I think the music awards are on tonight. Although, what would be a much better award ceremony would be my Brit Awards, just to acknowledge my world’s favourite Brits.

Siri: Who would come in the top three places?

Chris: Mel and Sue.

Siri: Do they take up one place or two?

Chris: I think one.

Siri: I think that’s fair.

Chris: Maybe this is a bad ceremony for me, because half the people are American, in a way.

Siri: Do you know who’s nominated for the Brit Awards?

Chris: Well, Rag n Bone Man, obviously.

Siri: Of course, that goes without saying i guess.

Chris: I’m a bit worried about his choice of artist name for an award ceremony, when you’re supposed to dress up smart, and he comes in in tattered rags.

Siri: SUCH a good point. But maybe he’ll surprise us all?

Chris: Could we look up a definition of Rag n Bone Man? Was it a guy who went around selling stuff?

Related imageRelated image

Siri: Yes! Oh my lord, you learn something new every day. Apparently a rag and bone man is someone who goes around selling household items to local merchants! I didn’t even know that!

Chris: So they’ll be a load of local merchant copies of his CDs in CD players.

Siri: Absolutely. I wonder why he came up with that name… Suspicious.

Chris: Yes.

Siri: Do you know of anyone else nominated?

Chris: Well, Mr Ed Sheeran is performing from his castle on the hill.

Siri: Good one.

Chris: Or, if not, I’m sure he’ll be showing you the shape of his heart. He wears his heart in his sleeve, that boy. I can’t help thinking that his song “Sing” is just a go at grumpy audiences. Sing!

Siri: Quite possibly. Although when I wen to see him he had nothing to complain about, we were all singing very loudly. His new album is coming out in about ten days! Exciting stuff.

Chris: It is. You know what, you know what could be an exciting moment for our readers?

Siri: No… what?

Chris: It’s the end of the blogisode.

Siri: Well that’s not exciting!

Chris: Peace.

History’s First Drafts

Hello and welcome to your weekly outlet of the strange and bizarre. Or, as we like to call it, Mundanevision. 

Chris: Hey Siri!

Siri: Good afternoon, Chris.

Chris: What’s going on?

Siri: What isn’t going on? The world and day are so dramatic.

Chris: It keeps spinning, though, which is good – if it didn’t keep spinning, we would all fall off!

Siri: Yep, the sun comes up and the world still spins. You’re right there.

Chris: Did you see the BAFTAs on Sunday?

Siri: I did not. I saw about some of the winnings, but I didn’t watch them. Did you? Did anything interesting happen?

Chris: Yes. As predicted, La La Land won a lot of awards. It’s interesting actually: the original script to La La Land is a teletubbies’ spin off, just focusing on the character La La.

Image result for la la land teletubby

Siri: Emma Stone portrays her quite successfully. She’s got that yellow dress and things.

Chris: I didn’t see any TV though, in her stomach. Maybe she just had one of those very flat screen ones – the knew 4k curved ones

Siri: Yes, that’s probably it. I don’t know who Ryan Gosling was supposed to be playing though?

Chris: Well, as with all spin offs, they will introduce new characters, so that it doesn’t feel like exactly the same show.

Siri: Ah, I see. It’s kind of inceptiony – our readers are reading on a screen about a film that was on a screen with a character who acted on a screen in it, who also had a screen on her stomach?!

Chris: And critics went to see it at the screening. And during the showing they probably might have had ice screen. OH no, that’s ice-cream. I’ve broken the chain now!

Siri: It was good while it lasted.

Chris: I enjoy breaking chains, oh slaves, they should all go free.

Siri: There are slaves in my new favourite musical, Hamilton. Almost everything in life is reminding me of Hamilton at the moment, have you ever had that kind of obsessive addiction?

Image result for hamilton

Chris: Yes. When I was reading the original Red Rising Trilogy (written by Piers Brown), I started living the book.

Siri: How? In what way?

Chris: Well, I was so into it, the characters have signs on their hands to denote what colour they are, so I started seeing the gold sign on my hand, because I’m one of the ruling classes, obviously.

Siri: Obviously. It’s quite creepy when that happens, isn’t it?

Chris: I didn’t mind it. I’m sure I will be getting the same feeling from his new book when it comes out next year.

Siri: (Sponsor us please, Piers Brown! We’re advertising for you!)

Image result for pierce brown red rising

Chris: Yes.

Siri: It’s always things like books and films and tv shows (and musicals, I guess!) that get into my head like that.

Chris: Has Hamilton anything to do with Hamelet?

Siri: Erm… Yes? In one of the songs, Alexander Hamilton, one of America’s founding fathers, mentions Macbeth, who was in a play named Macbeth. Also, the person who wrote Macbeth wrote a play called Hamlet with someone in it named Hamlet. So I guess you could say that’s a pretty direct link, eh?

Chris: Yes. You could ruin a whole Hamlet play just by calling your main character village.

Siri: That would be misleading.

Hamlet.jpg

Chris: I wonder whether the original script of Hamlet was a tour guide, around Denmark.

Siri: How so?

Chris: Because he mentioned Hamlets, which is obviously a character, but he doesn’t mention villages, or towns, so I think they were cut out, because he couldn’t get the funding.

Siri: Yes, but why Denmark?

Chris: I don’t know, I guess Denmark didn’t have that many tour guides written about it, back in 1600. Although the date is uncertain.

Siri: Yes, we’ve just consulted our dear friend the sloth, who did some research and found that Hamlet was written at an unknown date between 1599 and 1602. So who knows what century it was published in?

Chris: I reckon William Shakespeare must have forgotten that he wrote the play for years.

Siri: Yes, and then just put a few dates on different pages to confuse everyone.

Chris: You do that with checks. If you don’t cash it, you put today’s or yesterday’s date on it, just to be like ‘yes, I did get it in on time!’

Siri: I used to do that with homework, I used to write the day it was set, or the day after that on the top, so that the teacher marking it would think I was very organised and had started it as soon as it was set, instead of waiting until the break time before it was due.

Chris: That’s very clever, however it could backfire, because you could have put the date on from before she set it, and then got in so much trouble!

Siri: I think that they probably knew everyone was doing it!

Chris: We don’t do that with Mundanevision!

Siri: I know, we don’t even pre-record them, or pre-write them, like they do for some TV shows (like New Year’s ones).

Chris: Or, I’m sure, even some blogs!

Siri: Ooh, those rebellious cheeky people that pre-write their blogs. I’m proud we are not those people. No offence to any of you that do, I’m sure you’re lovely.

Chris: So, anyway, I think we stumbled on something before Hamlet was Hamlet, it was a travel guide to the villages and towns of Denmark written by Shakespeare before he made his fortune. You didn’t know he was a travel writer, but you’ve got to start somewhere!

Image result for denmark

Siri: Clearly he didn’t do very well at it, since no one even knew he was a Danish Travel Writer. There I was thinking he was an English playwright, I could not have been more silly.

Chris: Or maybe he was English, but he just wrote about Denmark.

Siri: My word he was clever! Why has no one mentioned before that he had so many brains?

Chris: Mundanevision, uncovering mysteries since… sometime in the past.

Siri: Yes, we’ll have to get old Will’s help at figuring out when we started the blog, or at least to guess a few random dates!

Chris: And, with that, we must say goodbye. If you feel like Charles Dickens is a butterfly collector, please let us know, and please like this post!

Siri: You are welcome to like this post even if you think Charles Dickens was a novelist.

Chris: If you don’t like this post, who do you think you are? Sponsored by BBC? Peace.

Strip Wallpaper Club

Hey guys! We already know that people like WordPress to read people’s opinions in a well-structured format, but if you like hearing two people’s opinions (and a silent animal) in that same well-structured format, you’ve come to the right place. Welcome to… Mundanevision. 

Chris: Hey Siri.

Siri: Hey Chris, how’s your day been going?

Chris: Well, I will get this out of the way first… Something just happened with me and Amazon!

Siri: Does it have anything to do with the sloth, and his original home? (The Amazon)

Chris: No, I’m talking about the website that provides people with anything from kettles to biographies of Lord Kitchener. Yes, people, I have a life outside this blog. I’ve written a book of short stories, called Big Dreams Short Stories. It will be up on Amazon shortly, in just 72 little hours it will be there for public viewing.

Siri: Wow! What’s it about, Chris?

Chris: It’s a book of short stories, shockingly, so if anybody wants to see another extracurricular activity of mine, outside the confines of the Mundanevision Studio, then they should check it out!

Siri: Well, from the sloth and me, and I’m sure all our readers too, congratulations!

Chris: Thank you, thank you. I’m here all week.

Siri: 2017 may not be great so far, but let everyone know that not only is today the day that Trump’s ban on immigrants was blocked, but ALSO, MORE IMPORTANTLY, the day that Chris’s first book was released!

Chris: Who let the town cry into the studio? The bell is very distracting.

Siri: Hahaha, it must have been Sloth, up to his usual mischief.

Chris: Oh, that sloth.

Siri: So, what else is going on Chris?

Chris: Well, it’s Friday.

Siri: A pretty unusual Mundanevision day. That’s my bad.

Chris: Well I had to phone in sick and get on with my book launch. And yes, I’ve blasted a copy up into space already!

Siri: The most important launch of the millennium.

Chris: The ISS boys do get awfully bored on that space station, with nothing to read, so you’re welcome, NASA!

Image result for international space station

Siri: Yes, to quote the legendary Disney Hit, Moana, What can we say except you’re welcome, for the wonderful world you know. All thanks to Chris, I’m sure.

Chris: Oh, stop it! I can’t believe I referred to the astronauts on the International Space Station as the ISS boys! Sounds like one of the cheesiest 90s boy bands ever!

Siri: At least you didn’t say Boyz with a zed!

Chris: It sounds like they’re so famous that their music is intergalactic.

Siri: That sounds like a magnificent boy band. Next lauch we should send them some instruments?

Chris: Sloth, can you get on that please? No, NO, not the double bass, it’s very cramped up there – have you seen their living conditions?

Siri: I bet the ISS Boyz are especially successful because of how different music must sound when you’re basically in a vacuum with low gravity.

Chris: I have to say, I was really sad when Tim Peake left the band. Speaking of fictional music groups, I now want to talk about a modern pop song I heard this week.

Siri: Oh yes, which one?

Chris: It was already a bad start when I said ‘modern pop song’. It is called “I Would Like” by Zara Larsson. I have a problem with the lyrics. The lyrics state that she sees a person in a club and she wants to get under his sexy body. What happened to dating? Are they skipping that part?

Siri: I guess she doesn’t care about them emotionally. It sounds like she’s saying what she means – that all she wants is to get under their sexy body?

Chris: I still think they should have set aside some time for courtship – unless he’s fallen on top of her in some freak accident.

Siri: This isn’t the 1700s anymore. There’s no such thing as courtship. You see someone you like, and BANG.

Chris: You’re under their sexy body. And how can she tell anyway? Does she have x-ray vision?

Siri: Maybe it’s a strip club? Maybe they are naked? You don’t need x-ray vision in that scenario.

Chris: If you’re talking about strip clubs, I hope it’s one of those clubs where you strip wallpaper off walls.

Siri: THAT IS THE GREATEST IDEA FOR A BUSINESS I HAVE EVER HEARD. You tell people that it’s a strip club, and then they come in and help you redecorate your house!

Chris: Yes, that’s exactly what I meant. As it Valentine’s Day on Tuesday, I want to appeal to young people who might be thinking of taking their girlfriend/boyfriend/partner out for a meal, or to the cinema to see the film. Do this. I encourage this. DON’T just get under their sexy body like Zara Larsson seems to do.

Image result for valentine's day

Siri: I, as an asexual person, would ALWAYS recommend watching ALL the movies, and eating ALL the food, and never getting under their sexy or unsexy body.

Chris: No, surely it needs to be a sexy body, and how skinny is the person that you could just slide under it. No, don’t get up, I’m coming! And before all the young people write in and tell me that I’m old and boring at 35, I would just like to say that… I am old and boring, at 35. And this is for entertainment purposes only!

Siri: I think I win, I’m old and boring at 21! That is a poor age to be old and boring at!

Chris: This is like the opposite of Top Trumps! What is the opposite of Top Trumps?

Siri: Bottom Trumps? Bottom Clintons?

Chris: Bottom Clintons.

Siri: *cries internally*

Chris: The Clintons must be really happy that they’ve been mentioned on Mundanevision! Anyway, that’s the end of the talk on bodies. Siri, would you like to rant about everything with no apparent end?

Siri: No, I’m pretty rant-free today. I’ve got a fun Valentine’s Day lined up – games night and pizza, what could be better?

Chris: Oh cool! The Lego Batman Film looks so good!

Siri: We’ll be watching the Princess Bride at home. Or whatever they feel like. As they wish.

Chris: Are you calling me the Dread Pirate Roberts?

Siri: Always. But yes, a lot of good films seem to be coming out soon. Our favourite over here in the Mundanevision Studios, Greta Gerwig, has a lot going on. She must be wearing down her shoes walking red carpets at the moment!

Image result for 20th century women

Chris: I can’t wait to see Batman. They are building up the hype.

Siri: Oh, I get it. Building, because they are building lego blocks!

Image result for batman lego poster

Chris: And there’s a film about the Holocaust that I really want to see.

Siri: Yes, Denial. I really want to see that too.

Chris: Maybe we should go and see it together? Sorry guys, we are just organising our social calendars over here!

Siri: Sorry for not inviting you.

Chris: Bodies and social calendars are the main topics you can take away from this blogisode.

Siri: Well, the two secondary topics, I think. After your book!

Chris: And, with that, it’s the end people! Thank you for putting up with my rants, people, and we will see you all next week. Siri, anything to add?

Siri: Yes, go and see some films, and let us know how they are, and what fun Valentine’s day plans you’ve got!

Chris: Right, I’m off to court a lady from the 1700s! Peace.

Closeted Animal Politics

It’s time. To face. The BLOGISODE! Thank you, random voice over man. Hello, welcome to Mundanevision, which is on the World Wide Web. Or, if Trump had his way, the World Wide Wall. Ooh, satire, let’s never speak of this again. 

Chris: Hello Siri.

Siri: Hello Chris, and how are you?

Chris: I am good, thank you. Did you like my introduction?

Siri: I certainly did, and the sloth is looking over and smiling at me as well, so I think he found it funny too.

Chris: He’s looking particularly happy with himself.

Siri: Definitely, it’s his wonderful producing that makes jokes like that so wonderful.

Chris: Well, thank you for backing me up on the intro. I brought a fishing rod into the studio in case I needed to fish for compliments.

Image result for fishing rod

Siri: Never. You’d never have to do that!

Chris: So nice. Are you telling me it’s over fished?

Siri: I suppose I am, yes. What else is going on with you today, Chris?

Chris: What else is going on with me… I’m sitting in a warm studio with you, doing this blogisode, I think that’s it.

Siri: It is nice and warm in here. It’s been raining for hours outside, I suppose we can watch it from the studio’s window.

Chris: Do you think the queen owns the rain? Do you think it’s the rain of Elizabeth the Second?

Siri: Hahahaha, how witty you are today. I say that every blogisode! I think if the swans are the swans of Elizabeth, then the rain can definitely be hers too, so yes, the rain of Elizabeth the Second.

Chris: OR, is it just the sky crying because of Trump?

Siri: I’m sorry, I don’t know what you’re talking about. What is this Trump thing? I don’t know a Trump. I’ve never heard of a Trump. What even is a Trump?

Chris: I think he’s the guy that invented the card game. First name Top.

Image result for top trumps

Siri: Oh, can you imagine? What a fantastic world that would be if all Trump had done was invent a fantastic card game. I’ve started to avoid opening the news in the morning to protect my sanity and happiness. What’s been going on today?

Chris: Oh he’s just fired some chief judge because he didn’t agree with him over the ban of immigrants from some Muslim countries.

Siri: What’s really terrifying is that there must be so many people that secretly agree with him. I think my grandparents probably do. It’s just legitimising racism.

Chris: It’s funny how you used to be gay and in the closet, and now you’re a trump supporter in the closet.

Siri: I think that’s a magnificent parallel, except for the fact that the internet is a dangerous place to draw parallels between gay people and Trump supporters.

Chris: No, no, I’m not saying they’re the same. I’m just saying that the closet that used to house them is now housing secret trump supporters.

Siri: I hope they stay inside that closet for a long time, but I think Trump is making it easier and easier to come out of that closet, and maybe chasing the gay people back in.

Chris: I want to be in that closet, it sounds amazing.

Siri: Yeah, let’s go join them, and have a bit of a party. It seems like a safer place than the rest of the world right now.

Chris: Yes. I feel like Trump is being met with a wall of silence by the world at the moment. I like the way that there are two petitions running – one that wants Trump to come, and one that doesn’t want Trump to come, and they’re both up to one million signatures. It’s true, they’ve got an anti-Trump petition and a pro-Trump petition!

Siri: I don’t really know where I stand on that issue to be honest. I obviously don’t agree with what he’s doing, being the liberal that I am, but additionally if we remain friends with him maybe we can slowly talk some sense into him, rather than just completely cutting him out. What do you think?

Image result for burrito sombrero

Chris: Everybody’s making a big deal over the wall he’s building, maybe they’re just building a house – some residence that’s just close to Mexico.

Siri: Maybe, but since he called Mexicans rapists, I feel like it’s unlikely for him to want to build a house very close to them.

Chris: Okay, let’s get off Trump, I’m not a political animal. I wonder what is a political animal? What animal is political?

Siri: There’s something political like about crabs. They seem suspicious and sneaky, and untrustworthy, like politicians.

Chris: And put them in hot water and they have a bad time. They’re always getting into hot water.

Siri: Hahaha! See, there are more parallels between politicians and crabs than the first parallels that spring to mind. I’m sure there are many more parallels between politicians and pigs than just the first that spring to mind as well!

Chris: You mean they’re swine?

Siri: Of course that’s what I meant.

Chris: Let’s leave this political animal discussion.

Siri: Yes. Please.

Chris: That’s a sentence you don’t hear every day!

Siri: Speaking of animals though, it was Chinese New Year over the weekend! It’s now the Year of the Rooster.

Image result for rooster china

Chris:  I knew this, I went and celebrated Chinese New Year with some friends.

Siri: No way! How did you celebrate?

Chris: Tried lots of Chinese New Year food.

Siri: My housemate’s Chinese and she went to celebrations, and I was hoping she’d bring me back some food. BUT SHE DIDN’T. They ate it all.

Chris: Chinese New Year strikes me as kind of smart, so…

Siri: In what way smart?

Chris: Well, coming in slightly later than 2017, and avoiding all it’s pitfalls!

Siri: Smart is definitely the right word!

Chris: Just superior in every respect. I mean, you don’t see the Chinese electing a rooster as head of the state, do you?

Siri: Ahahahaha, you don’t, that’s true. Although the year’s just begun, there’s plenty of time for thousands more pitfalls.

Chris: I don’t know, I think the Chinese New Year is creeping along behind the English one, trying to avoid its mistakes. Sneaky! And, with that, our new blogisode is at an end!

Meet The Sloth

thumbnail_fullsizerender

We finally got our sloth to appear in a picture! Introducing the producer of all our blogisodes since the beginning… he’s simply known as “The Sloth”. A bit like The Stig, but cooler.

Although he’s silent during the blogisodes, he’s very vocal when it comes to posting the shows on WordPress, expecting nothing less than perfection. Without the sloth, we wouldn’t have half the fans or supporters that we have. We owe him a big debt of gratitude for making our blogisodes into something you (hopefully) enjoy weekly. Thank you, Sloth, the leaves and tender shoots are on us tonight!
