I know very little of what Spotify is but it sounds like it is some sort of online radio broadcast, whatever the thing is Harry and Meghan signed a deal worth 18 million pounds to do some podcasts which they suggested would uplift and entertain audiences around the world and feature diverse perspectives and voices.
The deal is apparently worth £18million and so far all they have produced is a trailer for the series, called Archewell Audio, which contained the uplifting and entertaining words, “Fun” and “Happy New Year” spoken by their young son Archie followed by what has been described as an adorable giggle.
I would have thought it might have been more amusing had they got the young tot to fart along to the tune of Colonel Bogey, that really would have been an act that’s hard to follow unless a duet could have been arranged but as the famous French flatulist Le Petomane died in 1945 and the British exponent of the art Mr Methane seems to have retired, this therefore is an act we are unlikely to witness.
The trailer was followed by a holiday special which lasted just 33 minutes and featured James Corden and Sir Elton John but since then absolutely nothing has been produced although Spotify said the first complete series was expected to drop in 2021, I assume by “drop” they mean released; modern language how very amusing!
Spotify has been waiting some considerable time for something from Harry and Meghan and now it appears they have finally had enough and taken matters into their own hands, hoping that by using their own in house talent they might finally squeeze some content from the pair.
I have a feeling the reason they have not produced anything worth listening to is because they have nothing worthwhile to say and that Spotify might have a very good case for getting their money back under the Sale of Goods Act as the product is not fit for purpose.
Even with the assistance of others I shall not be waiting with bated breath for the next episode of Archwell Audio to drop anywhere, except perhaps into the dustbin.
I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work due to losing my agent when I became a full time carer to my mother who had dementia. and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent.
Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work.
I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise.
I spent many years looking after my aged mother and shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013.
My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie.
I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on Amazon.co.uk and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes.
I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage.
My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse.
I have written a number of different books all available on Amazon, so don't be shy should you feel the urge to purchase. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Mr-Joe-Wells/e/B06XKWFQHT/ref=dp_byline_cont_book_1
