No worries guys! It was my pleasure. I will provide photos for any Bret/Jemaine/Conchords related things happening in Wellington. I'm like the token Wellingtonian!

I've been telling all my friends how awesome this morning was, but they just kind of...don't get it! One even said "An 8.30 concert isn't very rock and roll, is it?". I'm trying to get more friends into them, but they kind of lose me at Ukulele Orchestra. Oh only if I had friends who understood the utter awesomeness of it!

I know! I'm sick of liking music my friends just don't get. Ah well. Time I got some new friends anyway :lol: That was a joke... Hope my mates don't read this... :shock:

Beck, at least you know that you have a bunch of people who would go with you if we were there. We understand the appeal of an 8:30 a.m. ukelele concert!

Good luck getting more converts!

Not love an 8.30 ukulele concert? With Bret? I just can't wrap my head around this concept... :rolleyes: That's too bad, but at least you can come here and gush about it to us! We are all ears...eyes I assure you.

Oh! So you would show us around town? I will so take you up on that offer in January. Hopefully. :D *crosses fingers* I can't wait to see Wellington!

You'll love it... Wellington is the awesomest city! Especially with an expert like Beck showing you the sights!

I wannnnnnnnna gooooooooooooo! Andria, you're going to have to get a video camera and just record your whole trip for me. Couldn't you get someone to make a documentary of your trip? :lol:


Beck, you know you have to explain the joke now ... As our token Wellingtonian, it's your duty! :wink:

Ok, I didn't really follow it much but there was this huge political thing where Maori wanted the rights to the forshore and seabed in New Zealand. I think that's what was happening anyway, and government passed an act called 'The Forshore and Seabed Act, 2004'.

Now whenever some of my friends say 'For Sure'...they add the 'and seabed act 2004' to it. It's a lame joke.

Heh. It's early enough in the morning, and I'm easily amused. I laughed out loud. Thanks for the explanation.

:lol: Thanks for explaining the joke, beck. I found it very funny. All though, I also am easily amused.

Jones, if you supply the camera, I'll video tape my trip! :D

Please please please please please :pray: :prayer: go to the Wellington Public Library Friday at 1 p.m. And take pictures. Lots and lots of pictures! Bret AND Age Pryor are going to be there doing the ukulele thing! I need more pictures of Age. I'm hyperventilating at the thought of it all!

Nope. Not working.
