Hey internet! *jazz hands* …sorry I saw the Greatest Showman last week and it seems to have rubbed off on me. The confetti canons are bit extravagant, but I look very dashing in my top hat! Anyway, we are back and it’s not even Sunday, what craziness!
Chris: Hey Esther
Esther: Hey Chris, how you doing/dancing? The Greatest Showman really has rubbed off on you.
Chris: I’m going to interview Zac Efron later, for some synchronised drinking and dancing
Esther: That sounds pretty good to me, I may tag along to that as it sounds like my kind of evening…
Chris: You and the sloth are invited. We will do it all in some sort of montage.
Esther: Maybe we could do a flash mob style dance on the way home, I always thought they looked pretty cool.
Chris: I’ve always wondered about the term ‘flash mob’ is it being attacked by the mafia really quickly? For instance, how would Peaky Blinders’ Thomas Shelby fare against a flash mob?
Esther: Well if Peaky Blinders teaches us anything, Tommy will probably trick the flash mob for his own advances before too long..
Chris: Would he join in and decide to choreograph they’re latest extravagant dance?
Esther: Wait, so you’re thinking of a mob doing a dance really quickly? Ah I get it now. I mean I’m less concerned about the welfare of Tommy Shelby, and quite relieved to hear he wants to get involved in choreography.
Chris: Well, he has to do something else, there’s no money in gang warfare anymore. Or maybe there is, maybe that’s the point.
Esther: Maybe dancing is his stress release. Just imagine, Tommy and his family are hugely at risk of attack by the Changrettas, and to blow off some steam the Shelby’s emerge out of the smoke of Small Health and do a synchronised flash mob down the road.
Chris: Can you imagine Al Capone doing the two step? Not so scary now, are you Al. He had the right shoes for it now I think about it.
Esther: ‘Peaky Blinders: The Musical!’ coming soon to a theatre near you.
Chris: Before I watched it, I always thought Peaky Blinders was about an ill gang in Birmingham, cause they’re feeling a bit peaky.
Esther: Well as the teenagers of today would say: it is a sick show!
Chris: Yes I’m not sure I understand that expression ‘sick’, do they mean the whole of television is just ill?
Esther: I don’t think that’s what they mean but to anyone over the age of 17, thats what people think they mean! Hopefully the phrase will blow over soon enough..
Chris: A bit like the fidget spinner, or the loom band craze. For those of you who have never heard of the loom band craze, it’s not the latest boy band put together by Simon Cowell!
Esther: Ah yes, nostalgia. They were such a craze when I was at school, people used to wear hundreds of them all up their arms! If I’m honest I’m ok with that craze having died out..
Chris: You know what I found out about the other day? The Spice Girl’s sticker album! Apparently you could collect Spice Girls doing different poses on stickers and fill up a book with them. Ah the 90s, it was an innocent time.
Esther: What is it about girl/boy bands and their adoring fans? I remember when Take That broke up and there was a suicide line for their fans!
Chris: Same with the end of Harry Potter, there was a suicide line that opened when J.K. Rowling stopped writing the books! I don’t even want to imagine what will happen when Games of Thrones. For me a celebration, but for the millions of fans, probably a new brand of the Samaritans.
Esther: People are really committed to their franchises. Maybe we need a mental health charity devoted to helping people struggling through a break-up? And when I say break-up, I mean when their favourite book/tv/movie series ending…
Chris: You know what else people are committed to? Prequels. People love a prequel, in fact I think the sequel has died out in favour of the prequel! Maybe these blogs should have a prequel blogisode.
Esther: that’s because all the big movie series now have done so many sequels they’ve only got prequels left! I also think doing prequels for our blogisode would be incredible, we could definitely freak some readers out by speaking from the past, something pretty ghostly about that!
Chris: Or we could just have a blank page and write ‘this is before blogisodes existed’! ‘For this week’s blogisode, please call this number and we can have a conversation’.
Esther: Ah the days before the internet. It’s hard to imagine how any of us managed with out it! Obviously our readers wouldn’t manage without our blogisode every week…
Chris: Obviously! We are pioneers of random rubbish on the internet. For those of you reading this who are really into saving the planet, it is of course recycled rubbish!
Esther: Of course, and so it should be! Committed to a greener planet, which also includes recycled amusement from the internet in the form of a blogisode!
Chris: Mundanevision: recycling jokes for a cleaner WordPress!
Time has once again run away with us! Before we start recycling stuff, it’s time to ‘See you next week! Peace’ but even that is recycled….
