Re: HBO Flight of The Conchords show - Season Two - Ep 1

My favorite line -- the guys are returning the cushion to the library, Jemaine says his father is a women's rights activist. B: Not your mom? J: No, Dad would never allow it. I had to rewind it to catch the whole exchange. Lovely. And I still chuckle when I think about library gigs. All the shushing...

Re: FOTC Emmy Info

Jemaine's jacket is snug indeed. What's that in his breast pocket? Cell phone/camera, maybe?

I think they all (including Bobin) looked quite nice. I missed the Emmys last night, but this pic is clearly the highlight.

Oh what fun, coming up with ways to use the Bus Driver's Song. Here's my idea: Part 6, "It's a Wellington Life" or, "A Christchurch Carol" Some disagreement with the band has caused Murray to doubt whether he ever should have come to NYC. While in supply closet, Murray slips and ...

They had a limited edition lithograph for sale in DC too. Whambi, your description of the Chicago poster sounds pretty much like what they had in DC. Lisner Auditorium, however, is not quite a world famous venue, so I wasn't so crazy about the litho! And I recall that because it was a lithograph, it...

My hubby's June Blender mag came in the mail today. Picked it up despite Tila Tequila being on the cover -- and hey, there's a nice little article about FotC and the guys' super-glamorous lifestyle (toting their own equipment, getting picked up from the airport by college kids, etc). But no mention ...

Jilly , awesome pix, funny captions, and I love your Flickr username. Did Bret think you spelled it Gill? Or Gillian? (I'm a Jill as well and I get that sometimes...).[/quote] Yep, Bibliaddict, gotta love Jill with a J! Wasn't that nice of Bret to take the time to find out my name, correct spelling...

I went to the late show in DC last night and it was terrific! This was my first FOTC show. Overall, very funny and only a couple of charming flubs by the guys (guess they got some practice and rest on their day off). The audience was rowdy, though. I think Sherry has said it before, that most folks ...

I like to imagine that Jemaine and Bret's alter egos are sitting in their NYC flat and wondering why they won for best comedy, and not album of year. Surely there's just a touch of irony in two comedians -- playing the part of struggling musicians -- winning a Grammy but not even getting an Emmy nom...

Well, considering that the official list on MSN's "Guide to the Grammy Awards" lists the comedy album winner waaaaay down on the list -- after Best Polka and Best Music Album for Children (the muppets won ... take that, Kanye), I'll have to guess that FOTC didn't get any airtime. Unless so...

Dave channels Bruce Springsteen

The name of Dave's pawn shop is Pawn in the U.S.A. (when said with the proper NY accent, "pawn" and "born" actually rhyme), and Dave is always wearing a Boss-like bandana. Very first-generation-American of him!

Have you tried the samosas?

Hi everybody!

I'm Jilly, from the Washington DC area. I'm a stay-at-home-lawyer (recently had to leave my job due to spouse's new job) with 2 sweet kids and a penchant for living vicariously through others. This site seems a good fit! :D As for FOTC preferences, I am more of a Jemainiac than a Bretaholic, but (as...
