conchordgirl, you're a lucky girl to have found the CD. I've spent the afternoon searching for a site that has it (since CDSmoke is down). I did manage to score a copy of Bret's Video Kid CD, though, so I'm looking forward to receiving that.

Hello Everyone

Postby The Jig » Sun Oct 02, 2005 9:24 pm

I'm The Jig.

I stumbled across the Conchords while flipping channels one night, and was hooked after the first few lines of "Business Time".

I've "forced" everyone I know with HBO to watch the special and most of my friends thought it was stupid. They said they didn't get it. I really need to get some new friends.

I got my copy from SmokeCDs..I wonder what happened to their website? I ordered mine Sept 13 and got it on the 26th. I also looked to see if I could get the CD somewhere closer to my home but no luck. I would like to put some of the tracks online but I don't want the guys to lose out on any money..I hope the guys get a couple more places to distribute it. I also hope the SmokeCD shop gets back online soon. The CD is genius.
Where did you get the Video Kid CD?

I found the Video Kid CD at CDKiwi.com. I'm hoping it shows up quickly. I've heard snippets elsewhere and I'm really looking forward to getting it. It's good to hear that your CDSmoke order arrived so quickly. If they come back online, I'll definitely order from them.

Hi, Conchordians!
I (like many others :) ) first saw FotC on HBO's One Night Stand. I've been hooked ever since. I got their Folk the World album last week. Awesome. Also enjoying their BBC show. "Wow, thats awesome" too. :wink:
Just wanted to say Hey. Oh, and thanks a bunch to Sherry for your awesome website. I know, I need a thesaurus, but I enjoy my broken record like vocabulary.

It's odd, because I've been a silent Figwit fan since his inception, and I found about FoTC from a completely different source. Some random magazine few months ago, I believe, where the band name and the "comedy folk" label appealed to me enough to download. First song I listened to was Pencils In The Wind, and I was hooked from then on. Pencils remains to this day my favourite song of theirs.

Anyway, imagine the lovely surprise when I found out that Figwit was the one singing! After that, I dled HBO's One Night Stand, and have been fairly er...keenly interested (sounds so much better than obssessed, no?) since. I've forced everyone in my family and a few friends to watch HBO, and thus far, I've turned five people into Conchordians. Go me. ;)

Fairly long intro, but that's me, verbose as hell. So hullo all!

Amaria, where were you able to download the songs? I'm looking for a fix of new-to-me stuff until I can buy the CD.

Sherry the website is looking great. It survived September! And is thriving, obviously.

Yes, folks, I have seen Tongan Ninga and survived. With my spleen intact.


Ooo another Ninja watcher. You made it through the lame (I love spelling it without the accent) opener then.

Did you spot Bret in the ads for that btw? I found them funnier than the film mostly. But I did like the film in that low budget humour kind of way. Jemaine cracked me up in it.

Welcome aboard :)


Was Bret dressed as a Ninja for the "Multi Action Ninja Hand" ad? I totally missed that. I liked the film too; you can tell they had a lot of fun making it. The shot of the father's legs after his encounter with the piranha is an absolute scream. Even though it wasn't made all that terribly long ago, everyone looks about 12 years old. Jemaine-of-the-many-voices stole every scene he was in -- he had all the best lines.

I hope to have my own FoTC fan site up in the next few weeks, really as a media serving site to watch and listen to the genius of Flight of the Conchords. Anyway, I've babbled enough. Nice to meet you guys and I hope to talk to you soon!
--Nicole
P.S. Many Thanks to Sherry for this wonderful site, for without it we would know nothing about these brillant guys. :D


One of the lucky people to get the CD ordered before the site disappeared into the void. I've never known Smoke CD's to go offline before, can only hope it comes back soon for those who want to hear the early stuff from the guys.

Sounds cool about the site. Keep us posted :)

Nice nick. Welcome aboard.

And yeah, a few people have that problem with their friends and are trading them in as I type. Or at least thinking about it. I guess what the guys do is not to everyones liking. At least those here agree with you and like 'em :)

Hullo!
I be a little Spammy from Australia. I have been a conchordian since 2003 I think, when I saw them on "Stand up!" on the telly.
I ordered their CD sometime early last year from the Access entertainment website but I think the merch page went missing.
Anyhoo, hope to chat to you all in the future.
