Here is my contribution to the May 2019 Basschat Composition Challenge, inspired by a picture chosen by the previous winner: myself.
There's been a 'Spinal Tap' moment in the ordering of a stage prop, a Fallen Angel, in polystyrene. The sketch showed millimetres, they've understood 'metres'. The resulting stage prop is rather cumbersome...
Stitched together in Reaper, of course, using 'phone Fx (a period-correct coin-operated call box, a spot of nostalgia for the older listener; incomprehensible clattering for the youngsters...), a distant backing track of my creation, and my own dulcet tones in the role of The Caller. The tiniest smidgin of treatment, and that's all. The text of the dialogue is below...
Thanks for listening, if you already have; if you're about to, enjoy.

 

 

Hello..?

Hello..?

Acme Polystyrene Models..?

Could you put me through to the modeling department, please..?

Yes, I'll hold...

Yes, I'd like to speak with Mr Barnes, the manager, please.

Yes, I'll hold...

Mr Barnes..?

Oh, OK; I'll hold on...

Mr Barnes..?

Yes, thank you; quite well. We do have a little problem, though, which you may be able to help us with.

Yes, that's right; the Fallen Angel.

Yes, for the rock group. The stage prop. Yes, that's the one.

What's the problem..? It's quite simple; I just wanted to check some details before you start production.

What's that..? You've started..?

Ah, I see.

Ah yes; that's what I'm 'phoning about. You see, our Bass Player, who came up with the idea, sent you a sketch, I believe, of the Fallen Angel.

Yes, I understand that you've received it...

Hold on a second, Mr Barnes; I'm afraid there seems to have been a misunderstanding. The dimensions that the Bass Player  put on his sketch were in millimeters.

Yes, the head would be sixty millimetres high.

Sixty metres..? Isn't that rather bulky..?

A twenty-story building..? Ha ha..! Just as well you've not started...

Oh, you have started...

And you made how many..?

Thirty..? Where are they all..?

What..? All blown away..?

Too lightweight..?

Oh, of course; polystyrene. Yes, that makes sense...

There's one remaining..? Finished..? Tethered..?

Yes, of course; I'll send the tour bus round straight away to pick it up.

A trailer..?

Several trailers..?

Helicopters..? I don't know about that; I'll see if anyone in the band has one available.

No, no; just send the invoice to the production company, as usual. They'll sort out the finance.

Thank you, Mr Barnes; it's been a pleasure. Are you coming to the concert this evening..?

No..?

Oh, I see. Well, thanks again; I'll get the Fallen Angel picked up right away. Goodbye.

As my early indications may have given the thought that my inspiration was toilet based with this one ,  I won't disappoint

I should say PARENTAL GUIDANCE as the variations of the poo word are very audible here.

well I missed the fallen angel reference and took the beast as a  winged 'protector' and then, with the current political mess , realised the amount of crap that gets spewed from top of the tree and applied the maths.

enjoy

Here's my slightly rushed effort. Greek Bouzouki, Violin Bass, Hydrogen drums and silly, badly recorded spoken words. I thank you.

Here's my effort for this month...like Lurks, it started off as a rather childish ditty about overfeeding pigeons and having to put up with oversized poo !!

Ended up as a slightly satirical look at 40 years of voting...with the same ends ....

nice to be back...(same rubbish as before though !!),
