Pffffft. I'd rarely know popular if it bit me in the rear. Everyone here seems amused at me too. Just call me oblivious. :-)

I hope you get to go! I can live vicariously through you then, as I'm a fan of both FotC and Bic Runga. Thanks! I'd actually never heard of Bic Runga til this tour announcement, but she seems to be quite popular here. One of my coworkers has thoughtfully volunteered to lend me her CDs so I'll be fa...

Little pincushions

It's been a while since I've posted in here, but it sure is fun seeing everyone's pets. I've just become surrogate mom to four baby hedgehogs. I'm new to New Zealand and hedgehogs too, and am loving these little prickly guys. I'm learning lots about hedgehog behavior -- fascinating critters. The mos...

*happy dance* I've got tickets!

Not sure I'll actually be able to make the show due to extenuating circumstances, but my fingers are crossed. My coworkers (here in NZ) are educating me on Bic Runga, and several are going to the show. Incidentally, I was at a class last evening and mentioned I was going to the show. Of the 15-ish p...

Well, I have one decent image of the show. Well, if you have one decent image, I want to see all the in decent ones! Not sure I can dredge up any more memories of the show. Yes, I do remember flying underwear that the guys threw into the audience. Bras, but maybe panties instead? Or in addition? Ca...

I was trying to remember what I liked so much about the Humourbeasts show I saw in Edinburgh. Unfortunately, I have no memory whatsoever. Heck, I couldn't even remember half of the songs played the last time I saw FotC until they turned up again on the BBC show (THANKFULLY!!) But luckily, InDUHvidu...

Just chiming in

to add my thanks as well, Sherry. Great idea to have this Q & A session, and kudos to the guys -- well, Jemaine and Rhys for now, and future kudos to Bret -- for their part.

Happy Birthday, WTF!

LAS, your doggies are adorable! They look so soft and silky! Thanks, indigo! To be fair, they're all fluffed up for a show they were in that weekend. The youngsters were just minutes out of the show ring in that picture. They're not always that fluffy looking! But they *are* always very sweet and h...

Can't resist...

Love seeing all these critters! Specialkay, that fawn is amazing -- must have been really neat raising it. And Sherry, I'm tickled to see those chicks, finally! So adorable! I love how they're all different colors. Nice to see Bowie and Daisy and the horses, too. :-) Here's my three "carpet monsters...

Hmmm...the paranoid schizophrenic or the absolute nutjob...

I worked for a boss for about three years who was clinically schizophrenic. Not so bad when he took his meds but utterly off his rocker when he didn't. I loved the work, and fortunately about half my time was spent doing field work out of the office. For the last year and a half, we worked out of th...

I can't imagine them

doing a major tour with anyone. I still have mixed feelings about them "making it big", whatever that really means. On one hand, I wish them every bit of success they could possibly want. However, a large part of their charm lies in their quirkiness and doing things their own way -- for which I have...

So, what's the secret then? Are all Kiwis this wonderful? How much are those plane tickets down there.... I already checked into it - $1200 from L.A. is the cheapest I've seen. (And no, I'm not THAT stalker-ish. I've wanted to see New Zealand for awhile now. :D ) With a bit of price-shopping and pa...

Well, I have the misfortune of not yet having seen the HBO special...but Kiwi accents can do funny things to American ears. Kiwis often pronounce the "aw" sound (as in "yawn") in a way that sounds like "or" to an unsuspecting American (so "yawn" becaomes something like "yorn"). So I'd vote that Bret...
