1) First time you stumbled into the Conchords? Not literally :p Was it the TV show, on the radio, a pic somewhere....
My sister suggested the show. I was skeptical. Her recommendations are hit and miss (mostly miss). I was home sick with the flu and bored out of my mind, so I gave in. I think my first giggle was at "most beautiful girl in the.... room". The laughter increased exponentially from there. â€œDid you walk on the outside of her?â€, the situation with the light, â€œWe wanted ones like Daft Punkâ€, Bret going on Jemaine and Sallyâ€™s date, Jemaine used to go on Bret and Sallyâ€™s dates, Mel and Bretâ€™s awkward hug, every moment of Iâ€™m Not Crying, THE HAIR HELMET
, and the genius that is the binary solo. By the end of the episode my weak, ill stomach was also sore from laughter. 2) Who did you think was hotter based on that first impression?
I didn't find either of them hot initially. 3) Has this opinion now changed? If so, divulge why
Oh my has it changed. Their humor made them increasingly attractive, as did the fact that they are such down to earth decent guys. Then I began to notice their otherâ€¦ umâ€¦ talents.
Bret drew me in first with his puppy dog eyes, scruff and curls. I noticed Jemaine second. Who knew an ogre that works in a library could be so **** fine. The casual prince outfit sealed the deal and I became fully biconchordian. I found burly manliness squeezed into a ladies blouse irresistible. (I'm not the only one, right?
). We need a word for that combination of hilarious and sixy that only they can do. sixlarious? hexy?
That makes them sound like witches. Iâ€™ll work on that. 4) Chops or no chops.
Yis please. I'll take my Conchords however I can get them.5) Beard or no beard.
I prefer scruff to full beard.
The Manson pic scares the Brejesus out of me.
Dr. Chevalier stirs some naughty thoughts, but I always feel queasy and ashamed afterward. 6) Favourite Conchords song to date? Any particular reason?
This changes depending on my mood. I'm really digging Hotties lately, probably because its sort of a straight song from them. 7) Your current favourite pic of Jemaine or Bret. Please post and share
currently: the rock god spandex pics from this tour
before this tour: the Amoeba pics, no- the pics from that meet and great when they wore capes, no- any pic of Jemaine in a slutty V neck... wait no- Bret's arm pic...... no- Bret eating...... um, what was the question? 8 ) Do you resemble Mel in any way shape or form?
I would totally buy a super straw from them. and some nut loaf. and the other thing. 9) We adore you, but we really wish you...........
Is it greedy to ask for another tour before this one is over?10) Thongs. Underwear or footwear?
Footwear. I've been turned off by the other kind ever since Oprah talked about bacteria migrating from back to front. 11) Favourite Conchord quote? From TV/radio show or someplace else.
You'd have to be deaf to hear that.
runner up: all the "situations" (ridiculous Russian doll situation, high pressure situation, the whole situation with the light, Yoko Ono situation, beard or no beard situation, Fleetwood Mac situation...) 12) Your most prized piece of Conchords merch? (share a pic if you have one)
The doily stickers from last tour. I want a real doily that looks like that.13) Who has more pics of Jemaine - SheWolf or Mockingbird. Discuss.
I think they should join forces and become a Jemaine photo super-power. As long as they used those powers for good. 14) On the upcoming European tour what are you hoping to see most?
Bret and Jemaine (and Nigel) having fun.
Lots of WTFers with memorable stories. 15) Following on from #14, what do you want to see least?
An audience like the one in Washington DC last tour. The hecklers sucked all the positivity out of the arena. The worst heckle was well intended, but backfired. A guy heckled the hecklers and shouted "Shut the **** up and let them play!" Bret asked someone up front what the guy had said. They both must have misunderstood because Bret replied "Oh, shut the **** up and play. I guess we better do a song then.â€ 16) What's your favourite other project outside of the Conchords. Either Bret or Jemaine or both.
WIUO 17) Dinner with the Conchords. What would you cook?
fish tacos... deliciousâ€¦18) Best Conchord moment ever.
Iâ€™m hoping it will be meeting them after the Vegas show. 19) Have you ever dressed as a Conchord or anything related to them for Halloween (or other party).
I have a few Conchords inspired fashion purchases that I wear- stripy socks, a Team Building Exercise â€˜99 shirt, a denim blazer, a piano key belt - but not on Halloween.
and not all at the same time 20) Have you ever attempted to spin a wheelbarrow or worn a white tracksuit with red stripes while out in public.
No, but Iâ€™ve been known to shake my booty on an escalator.
