Title: The pressure of being like R2

Hello listeners, Matt here, hope you enjoyed our first show on R2. It’s nice to say R2 as its R2-D2’s first name, used only by his closest friends such as Luke and C3P0. The D2’s were all very proud of R2, at first they thought he may bring shame to the D2 lineage but in the end they all thought R2 was a terrific guy. In fact a lot of the young D2 kids felt a bit in his shadow and the pressure to ‘be like uncle R2’ was mostly to blame for K1-D2 getting into drugs and kicking over a bin. So anyway, its nice to be on R2.

I am writing this because Russell is a man out of time; he proudly crosses roads confident that the motorcar will not be invented for another fifty years. Thus the idea of him writing a blog is like Samuel Pepys in a disco. This is a man who writes his Guardian columns by recording his voice on wax cyclinders which are then painstakingly transcribed by his PA. She has to use a quill because Russell is mistrustful of modern pens, believing rollerball technology to be the work of ‘some deville’. But I will try to get him to contribute when he can.

So anyway, next show we’ll be talking about conspiracy theories. We’d like to focus more on the small conspiracies that plague your life such as ‘someone keeps moving my bins’ and ‘are pavements getting smaller?’ more than Area 51 and The New World Order as we are planning to start a cult and we don’t want to draw the attention of the powers that be yet. So anyway, let us know what’s troubling you... bye.
