1) First time you stumbled into the Conchords? Not literally :p Was it the TV show, on the radio, a pic somewhere....

The very first time was when I came across one of the episodes from series one. “The actor” I think it was. I remember ending up watching the whole episode and laughing a lot, but the series was aired late at night and I ended up not watching any other episodes. I really got hooked once my friend sent me a couple of links to youtube videos. The Humans Are Dead and Frodo were so fantastically dorky I couldn’t believe it :lol:

2) Who did you think was hotter based on that first impression?

I always fancied Bret a bit and thought Jem looked a bit odd. Funny, but odd.

3) Has this opinion now changed? If so, divulge why

After finding WTF I got caught up in the Jem photo thread, which sort of brainwashed me (in a good way) and I came out the other side wondering why I had ever thought he looked weird. He was bloody gorgeous! Then I started going through the Bret thread, and sooner than you could say flip flop I was right back where I started, times a gazillion :heart: I’m pretty much as Bretero as they come (Nonch excepted of course :wink: )

4) Chops or no chops.

Depends on the conchord. For Jem the answer is a definite “chops”! For Bret I’d say kudos for trying them out, but let’s not, eh :)

5) Beard or no beard.

Beard, but nothing too Jesusy :wink: Scruff is the best. Jem can do clean shaven, but prefer Bret with facial hair :nod:


6) Favourite Conchords song to date? Any particular reason?

The Humans Are Dead! It’s funny, funky and geeky rolled into one. Like a musical kinder surprise :lol:

7) Your current favourite pic of Jemaine or Bret. Please post and share

Image



8 ) Do you resemble Mel in any way shape or form?

No (thank god) :lol:

9) We adore you, but we really wish you...........

…no, never mind. We adore you! :D

10) Thongs. Underwear or footwear?

Neither!

11) Favourite Conchord quote? From TV/radio show or someplace else.

Edit: Murray's: "Maybe if you squint your ears!", to Keitha's claim that she sounds like Marilyn Monroe :roll2:

12) Your most prized piece of Conchords merch? (share a pic if you have one)

The only thing I have bought is a song book…. My fave FOTC thing is my Stana bag :worry: I know I made that myself, but I still think it should count :lol: (I hope I’ll get it signed come May :pray: )

13) Who has more pics of Jemaine - SheWolf or Mockingbird. Discuss.

Counting all the versions of the huggy pic, I’m going to go with SW 


14) On the upcoming European tour what are you hoping to see most?

A laid back meet and greet on a sunny night in Bergen. And a complete live version of BDS :nod:

15) Following on from #14, what do you want to see least?

Drunken idiots (or sober ones) ruining a good time for the guys and the rest of us by shouting during the show etc.

16) What's your favourite other project outside of the Conchords. Either Bret or Jemaine or both.

It will probably not come as a shock that I am a huge fan of the WIUO :rock:

17) Dinner with the Conchords. What would you cook?

Oooh. That’s a tough one. I can’t really cook… Maybe just serve up a few gallons of beer and hope for the best :halo:

18) Best Conchord moment ever.

When I scored tickets for the Bergen gig and realised that I will actually see them live!! Not really a proper Conchord moment, but I reserve the right to edit this answer on 23.5.2010 :D

19) Have you ever dressed as a Conchord or anything related to them for Halloween (or other party).

Nope.

20) Have you ever attempted to spin a wheelbarrow or worn a white tracksuit with red stripes while out in public.

Nope.

1) First time you stumbled into the Conchords? Not literally :p Was it the TV show, on the radio, a pic somewhere....
My friend showed me some clips from the HBO show - "If You're Into It" and "Business Time" and "Bret You Got It Going On" - on YouTube. I was on the floor laughing. A few days later I looked for some more stuff by them on YT and ended up watching most of the One night Stand clips. I was totally hooked, lol.

2) Who did you think was hotter based on that first impression?
The first night at my friend's house, I didn't think either of them were particularly hot, I just thought they were really funny. But then when I looked them up on YT a few days later, I watched the ONS version of Jenny and at that point I developed a serious crush on Jemaine, lol.

3) Has this opinion now changed? If so, divulge why :)
Not at all. ;)

4) Chops or no chops.
On Bret - no chops. I can go either way with Jemaine.

5) Beard or no beard.
On Bret - definitely beard. I can go either way with Jemaine. :lol:

6) Favourite Conchords song to date? Any particular reason?
I would date any of the Conchords songs. ;)

7) Your current favourite pic of Jemaine or Bret. Please post and share :)

Image

Humina. :drool:

8 ) Do you resemble Mel in any way shape or form?
No! Not at all! What are you implying? :? Here, have a cookie, I baked them myself in the shape of Bret and Jemaine. .....What? ;)

9) We adore you, but we really wish you...........
.... would never wear that awful hat from Aro ever again. ;)

10) Thongs. Underwear or footwear?
Underwear for leggy blondes.

11) Favourite Conchord quote? From TV/radio show or someplace else.
This is impossible! :lol: Here is a random favorite quote, there is no way I can pick just one.
Bret: Did you wear protection?
Jemaine: Yes, but only on my penis.


12) Your most prized piece of Conchords merch? (share a pic if you have one)
Image
This is an awful picture of it, but I made this poster and then I got them to sign it in Portland. Bret liked it, Jemaine seemed not to know quite how to react to it, lol. ;)

13) Who has more pics of Jemaine - SheWolf or Mockingbird. Discuss.
:lol:

14) On the upcoming European tour what are you hoping to see most?
Some songs they didn't do last time, like Mermaids and Ladies of the World. Also M&G hug pictures from all WTFers. :heart: :thumb: I'm curious to see what they do for Demon Woman, lol.

15) Following on from #14, what do you want to see least?
I don't want to see any rude hecklers. :hrmpf: I want people to show the guys nothing but love. :heart:

16) What's your favourite other project outside of the Conchords. Either Bret or Jemaine or both.
Definitely the WIUO. :nod:

17) Dinner with the Conchords. What would you cook?
We'd have a spit roast, of course. ;) :lol:

18) Best Conchord moment ever.
Gah! Are you trying to kill us with these hard questions, Sherry?? I have to come back to this one too. I've been filling out this questionnaire for half an hour, lol.

19) Have you ever dressed as a Conchord or anything related to them for Halloween (or other party).
No.

20) Have you ever attempted to spin a wheelbarrow or worn a white tracksuit with red stripes while out in public.
Ha ha! No but I do have a black and white striped shirt that I bought solely because it reminds me of Amoeba, lol.

I look forward to reading your replies :)
Me too! :thumb:

Following the rules exactly.

1) First time you stumbled into the Conchords? Not literally :p Was it the TV show, on the radio, a pic somewhere....

I tried the Hbo show out of boredom. Season 1 was almost at an end so I had quite a bit of catching up today. It became an after work delight very quickly.

2) Who did you think was hotter based on that first impression?

I didn't think either of them were hot lol. :worry: I started noticing Jemaine around episode 3. It was the line about monkeys that got me. My sense of humor and hormones are completely bonded.

3) Has this opinion now changed? If so, divulge why

Changed? No, it's been a steady evolution of Jemaine getting hotter than crud. Each conchord has a static place for me. Jemaine can be fantasized about. Bret is on a pedestal so high that I wouldn't dare. He's magical!! How dare you people! (it's okay really, I don't judge you for it. But, on some level it seems blasphemous to me.)

4) Chops or no chops.

Either

5) Beard or no beard.

Prefer no beard on Jemaine. Bret needs his beard.

6) Favourite Conchords song to date? Any particular reason?

Freaky currently. It fits me.

7) Your current favourite pic of Jemaine or Bret. Please post and share

I've been enjoying the heck out of this one lately.

Image

8 ) Do you resemble Mel in any way shape or form?

Moi? :worry: :whistle: :halo: You can't prove anything!

9) We adore you, but we really wish you...........

would tour constantly like the grateful dead. And consider movie rolls that involved you being very natural. *cough* :yawinkle: :D

10) Thongs. Underwear or footwear?

Underwear

11) Favourite Conchord quote? From TV/radio show or someplace else.

"How to get it done." I use it a lot. Don't know why. Stuck with me.

12) Your most prized piece of Conchords merch? (share a pic if you have one)

My signed album :D

13) Who has more pics of Jemaine - SheWolf or Mockingbird. Discuss.

Mockingbird? I'm sad my name isn't up there. I have 4 photo accounts with flikr and photobucket!

14) On the upcoming European tour what are you hoping to see most?

Besides the actual European tour? :( *sniff* Pictures of course! :D

15) Following on from #14, what do you want to see least?

Inappropriate conduct from fans. Also, if they beat a harp seal to death on stage that would be insanely unpleasant.

16) What's your favourite other project outside of the Conchords. Either Bret or Jemaine or both.

Eagle vs. Shark

17) Dinner with the Conchords. What would you cook?

Let's see I make really good vegetarian chili and fudge. But, what a combination! :doh: I might order take out lol.

18) Best Conchord moment ever.

That counter top dance in the new cup episode. (Hey! I'm honest)

19) Have you ever dressed as a Conchord or anything related to them for Halloween (or other party).

Nope

20) Have you ever attempted to spin a wheelbarrow or worn a white tracksuit with red stripes while out in public.

Unfortunately not, should I try this? I feel as though I'm missing out on something.

1) First time you stumbled into the Conchords? Not literally :p Was it the TV show, on the radio, a pic somewhere....
Their appearance on One Night Stand.

2) Who did you think was hotter based on that first impression?
Neither, really. I thought Jemaine's glasses were adorable but Bret was the one I was drawn to. I wouldn't have called either of them hot though.

3) Has this opinion now changed? If so, divulge why :)
Bret's still the one I'm drawn to. I think he's gorgeous but I still don't find him attractive when I watch One Night Stand. Jeamine's glasses don't even do it for me anymore.

4) Chops or no chops.
Chops.

5) Beard or no beard.
Beard for Bret, no beard for Jemaine.

6) Favourite Conchords song to date? Any particular reason?
I have three - Bus Driver's Song, Rambling Through the Avenues of Time, and The Ballad of Stana. I love the songs that really tell a story, I suppose.

7) Your current favourite pic of Jemaine or Bret. Please post and share :)
Image

8 ) Do you resemble Mel in any way shape or form?
There's no way I could ever claim to be a "casual" fan but I don't think I'm anywhere near Mel status. Everyone has a different opinion of what makes a "Mel" though, so it's a tough question to answer.

9) We adore you, but we really wish you...........
WOULD STOP THE SUGALUMPS FOOLISHNESS. :bang: :bang: :bang:

10) Thongs. Underwear or footwear?
Underwear.

11) Favourite Conchord quote? From TV/radio show or someplace else.
Pretty much everything Greg Proops says on the radio show.

12) Your most prized piece of Conchords merch? (share a pic if you have one)
Conchords merch:
Image

Conchords-related merch:
Image

13) Who has more pics of Jemaine - SheWolf or Mockingbird. Discuss.
I don't pay enough attention to the Jemaine topics to have an educated guess. :oops:

14) On the upcoming European tour what are you hoping to see most?
A new song or two would be very cool.

15) Following on from #14, what do you want to see least?
Anything obnoxious, really.

16) What's your favourite other project outside of the Conchords. Either Bret or Jemaine or both.
I couldn't possibly choose between Bret's Video Kid album and The WIUO. I :heart: them both dearly.

17) Dinner with the Conchords. What would you cook?
I'd rather not be the one responsible for either of them getting food poisoning. We'd eat out.

18) Best Conchord moment ever.
The Magnolia-inspired Hurt Feelings scene from The Tough Brets. The angry dance from The Third Conchord is a close second.

19) Have you ever dressed as a Conchord or anything related to them for Halloween (or other party).
I have not.

20) Have you ever attempted to spin a wheelbarrow or worn a white tracksuit with red stripes while out in public.
Can't say that I have.

) First time you stumbled into the Conchords? Not literally :p Was it the TV show, on the radio, a pic somewhere....

Saw posters for the TV show plastered throughout Greenwich Village, summer 2007. The first time I saw them perform was on One Night Stand on Comedy Central some months later. I thought Jenny was cute but when Jemaine broke into "there are people on the street getting diseases from monkeys" I laughed so hard that I couldn't breathe for about 15 minutes. I guess that's when the love affair was born.

2) Who did you think was hotter based on that first impression?

I saw no hotness.

3) Has this opinion now changed? If so, divulge why

Yes. When I saw photos & videos of Jemaine outside the TV show I thought mmmmmmmm :drool: ...

4) Chops or no chops.

Muttonchops? Bret? Yes.

5) Beard or no beard.

Who are we talking about? They both look good with beards but Bret needs one more than Jemaine.
:doomed:

6) Favourite Conchords song to date? Any particular reason?

Impossible to choose but for the moment I’ll say Ladies of the World because I am hoping they play it in Amsterdam.

7) Your current favourite pic of Jemaine or Bret. Please post and share

Image
Coz weez huggin' duh.

8 ) Do you resemble Mel in any way shape or form?

We both have eyes.

9) We adore you, but we really wish you...........

Would cover your nipples in public.

10) Thongs. Underwear or footwear?

Depends on where you are.

11) Favourite Conchord quote? From TV/radio show or someplace else.

Impossible to choose but I’ll go with the old standby, Panties On!

12) Your most prized piece of Conchords merch? (share a pic if you have one)

No gots merch

13) Who has more pics of Jemaine - SheWolf or Mockingbird. Discuss.

I am honored to be mentioned in this 20 Things *courtesies humbly*


14) On the upcoming European tour what are you hoping to see most?

Snake hips


15) Following on from #14, what do you want to see least?

Jemaine’s nipples


16) What's your favourite other project outside of the Conchords. Either Bret or Jemaine or both.

Whatever Jemaine decides to do.


17) Dinner with the Conchords. What would you cook?

COOK? :roll2:

18) Best Conchord moment ever.

Probably anything involving Jemaine dancing or looking confused.

19) Have you ever dressed as a Conchord or anything related to them for Halloween (or other party).

No.

20) Have you ever attempted to spin a wheelbarrow or worn a white tracksuit with red stripes while out in public.

Is this some Bret thing?

1) First time you stumbled into the Conchords? Not literally :p Was it the TV show, on the radio, a pic somewhere....

I saw a promo for their show on another channel. This one:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q865pYAH1ik&feature=related

2) Who did you think was hotter based on that first impression?

I thought they were both cute but I didn't necessarily think one was hotter than the other.

3) Has this opinion now changed? If so, divulge why

Oh, you know it has! And you may not understand it but you know why. :wink:

4) Chops or no chops.

No chops.

5) Beard or no beard.

Beard.

6) Favourite Conchords song to date? Any particular reason?

Tie between Jenny and Bus Driver's Song.

7) Your current favourite pic of Jemaine or Bret. Please post and share

Image
My current fav. He looks so iconic in this one.

8 ) Do you resemble Mel in any way shape or form?

I did kind of follow Jemaine to the last 2 awards shows he attended in LA. :blush: But I'm much more sane. Do we resemble each other? Well, maybe around the eyes. We both have eyes.

9) We adore you, but we really wish you...........

…

10) Thongs. Underwear or footwear?

Underwear.

11) Favourite Conchord quote? From TV/radio show or someplace else.

How about “You’re so tiny that you eat milkshakes.” Maybe not my favorite but it’s a good one.

12) Your most prized piece of Conchords merch? (share a pic if you have one)

The limited edition Vegas poster I ordered from Nic Marshall.

13) Who has more pics of Jemaine - SheWolf or Mockingbird. Discuss.

Mockingbird seems to be more a Jemaine picture enthusiast but SheWolf has more experience with Jemaine themed smackdowns proving that she must have an organized, well rounded collection. Both have cracked me up with their photoshop creations. It’s very hard to choose. I’m going to call it a tie.

14) On the upcoming European tour what are you hoping to see most?

I won’t be there but I’m hoping for new banter, videos, pictures, meet and greet stories, hug photos, maybe a new song or two. Whatever I could get from it, really. I ain’t picky.

15) Following on from #14, what do you want to see least?

It’s my worst fear so I’m not even going to dare say it.

16) What's your favourite other project outside of the Conchords. Either Bret or Jemaine or both.

From what I’ve seen, I want to see more old videos of The Humourbeasts because it’s so bad, it’s almost good. I enjoy the stuff that Taika and Jem have worked on together. It’s hard to say because Jemaine’s acting career is just taking off. I look forward to seeing future projects from him, especially Predicament and Dinner for Schmucks.

17) Dinner with the Conchords. What would you cook?

Mexican food. Something really fresh and delicious using local ingredients.

18) Best Conchord moment ever.

I wasn’t there but I would have loved to have been at their Makoura College performance. It was such a great cause! Otherwise, I think seeing them play at The Greek Theatre with Patricio and Waldo was pretty cool.

19) Have you ever dressed as a Conchord or anything related to them for Halloween (or other party).

I have a few American Apparel v necks but I'm lacking chest hair.

20) Have you ever attempted to spin a wheelbarrow or worn a white tracksuit with red stripes while out in public.

No.

1) First time you stumbled into the Conchords? Not literally :p Was it the TV show, on the radio, a pic somewhere....
Some people at work had told me about it but the first time I actually focused on something they did was when my friend posted a Hiphopapotomus vs Rhymenocerous video on her Facebook page. I watched it. Within a week I had watched every episode and bought the first season. That was last July.

2) Who did you think was hotter based on that first impression?
I didn't think either was hotter. I was more attracted to Jemaines deer t-shirt

3) Has this opinion now changed? If so, divulge why :)
I am more of a Bretero, but more often then not Jemaine has the power to make me come over all flustered like!

4) Chops or no chops.
Chops! Always.

5) Beard or no beard.
If they're together I like one with and one without, but generally I don't mind.

6) Favourite Conchords song to date? Any particular reason?
Maybe Busdrivers song, but I'll never forget falling around the place laughing when I first heard Prince of Party's while watching New Fans.

7) Your current favourite pic of Jemaine or Bret. Please post and share :)
Image

8 ) Do you resemble Mel in any way shape or form?
Only that, like paper dolls, we're a similar shape!

9) We adore you, but we really wish you...........
would do just a normal cover of a song.

10) Thongs. Underwear or footwear?
Footwear

11) Favourite Conchord quote? From TV/radio show or someplace else.
Can't remember the full quote but when Bret's girlfriend in the radio series says she'll make him an aromathera-pie :D

12) Your most prized piece of Conchords merch? (share a pic if you have one)
I'm very happy with my Video Kid CD, but nothing exactly rare in the Conchords fan world

13) Who has more pics of Jemaine - SheWolf or Mockingbird. Discuss.
I really don't know

14) On the upcoming European tour what are you hoping to see most?
Apart from the lads themselves, I'm really looking forward to seeing Kristen Schall and meeting the other fans.

15) Following on from #14, what do you want to see least?
People shouting out requests! I hope they don't spend half the night shushing the crowd.

16) What's your favourite other project outside of the Conchords. Either Bret or Jemaine or both.
I'm really looking forward to where Jemaines acting gigs will take him, and I'm delving into The Black Seeds and WIUO.

17) Dinner with the Conchords. What would you cook?
An Irish Stew with no bones.

18) Best Conchord moment ever.
The day I heard they were playing in Dublin was one of my happiest days so far this year :D

19) Have you ever dressed as a Conchord or anything related to them for Halloween (or other party).
Not for a party or anything but I have bought a lot more shirts like the ones Bret where's. Also I bought a denim shirt and have christened it my Jemaine shirt.

20) Have you ever attempted to spin a wheelbarrow or worn a white tracksuit with red stripes while out in public.
Not yet, but if I can find that type of tracksuit before the concerts, my outfit will be sorted!

1) First time you stumbled into the Conchords? Not literally :p Was it the TV show, on the radio, a pic somewhere....

On the MySpace page of a friend. I was laughing my butt off and immediately headed to YouTube and watched for who knows how long....

2) Who did you think was hotter based on that first impression?

Based on the first impression- neither...I just loved the humor.

3) Has this opinion now changed? If so, divulge why

Oh yes! After seeing perhaps the 1'st 2 episodes after acquiring season 1, it became obvious that Jemaine was gorgeous and I was a goner.

4) Chops or no chops.

I like them both better without, but it's not a deal-breaker. ;)

5) Beard or no beard.

Oooo, Bret needs the beard or he looks like a minor, lol. Jemaine? Rowr....clean-shaven or scruffy is fine by me. He looks good wither way.

6) Favourite Conchords song to date? Any particular reason?

Ughhh...just one? Well, I'd have to pick Bus Driver's Song since it's my go-to song in the car when I'm not sure what I want to hear. (The first time I heard it I thought it was soooo long. Now I wish it were much longer, lol.)

7) Your current favourite pic of Jemaine or Bret. Please post and share

(I think this is the one mock blue-filtered. I love how sweet/hot/boyish/happy he looks all at once)
Image

8 ) Do you resemble Mel in any way shape or form?

Yes, a bit. I can't lie...I know I'm more than a casual fan but I certainly wouldn't go through their trash or follow them around or paint 2-headed naked pictures of them....

9) We adore you, but we really wish you...........

Hm....I can't think of anything for this one! Maybe go out and give more photo ops? I swear, we're salivating here over Jemaine's IS Awards pics, lol!

10) Thongs. Underwear or footwear?

Underwear

11) Favourite Conchord quote? From TV/radio show or someplace else.

Bret: Did you use protection?
Jemaine: Yes, but only on my penis.
(I loved how serious they both were!)

12) Your most prized piece of Conchords merch? (share a pic if you have one)

Image
I also love the Band Meeting t-shirt they both signed but the poster makes me smile daily.

13) Who has more pics of Jemaine - SheWolf or Mockingbird. Discuss.

Ha! Hmmmmm :hrm: I'm going to say SW since she's been here longer but it could really be a toss-up....mock's been quite busy in her collecting as well.

14) On the upcoming European tour what are you hoping to see most?

Lots of show videos and many, many meet and greet pics of WTFers and other net friends meeting the guys and getting the pics they've longed for!

15) Following on from #14, what do you want to see least?

Bad manners at the shows....yells of "Freebird!" or "Where's Murray?" :|

16) What's your favourite other project outside of the Conchords. Either Bret or Jemaine or both.

The Wellington International Ukulele Orchestra! :rock:

17) Dinner with the Conchords. What would you cook?

I would make them whatever they asked for.

18) Best Conchord moment ever.

I'll be alone in this one, I bet. ;)
During the credits of New fans when they're both in bed and Bret asks Jemaine if he looked...and Jemaine says they agreed never to talk about this. How he and Summer stopped for a break and so Bret was up there on his own for a while.....:lol:

19) Have you ever dressed as a Conchord or anything related to them for Halloween (or other party).

No

20) Have you ever attempted to spin a wheelbarrow or worn a white tracksuit with red stripes while out in public.

No

1) First time you stumbled into the Conchords? Not literally :p Was it the TV show, on the radio, a pic somewhere....

It started with my daughter showing me YouTube videos from the ONS and many of the HBO songs. I vividly remember seeing/hearing "Jenny" for the first time, and the subtle comedy was so unexpected and endearing... :heart: and then "Bret you got it going on" almost killed me. :roll2: That night we rented Season One and marathoned it.


2) Who did you think was hotter based on that first impression?

I didn't register hot-ness from YouTube, only funny-ness. When I watched Season One, I remember thinking that the accents were very HOT, and Bret was kinda cute in an abandoned, starving puppy sort of way, but Jemaine always seemed to have my attention. By the end of the series, my daughter was digging Bret and in spite of myself, I was secretly crushing on Jemaine....HARD. :lol:


3) Has this opinion now changed? If so, divulge why

Yes. *points down at siggie* :horny: Divulge why? Oh, no one wants to hear that story again. :lol: :oops:


4) Chops or no chops.

On Bret... Some of my very favorite photos of Bret are with those chops. There's nothing like them in the universe. What was he thinking? No one knows, but I will love him forever for rocking that look. 8)

On Jemaine....Yes, please. I think he stole my heart with those big delicious sideburns. Irresistible.


5) Beard or no beard.

On Bret...His beard is good. No one can deny it. His beard is so good. So, so good. Perfection.

Jemaine and any other male on the planet...no. Scruff yes, beard no. Please, no.


6) Favourite Conchords song to date? Any particular reason?

Hard question. I have favorites for the melody, and favorites for the guitar riffs. Favorites for the lyrics, and favorites for listening to Bret's voice. Even favorites for the music videos, but my favorite song for personal reasons would be Rambling through the Avenues of Time. Because they performed it live at the concert I attended in '09. ...and I had a brief discussion with Bret about the song that night, and the way Bret sings my "name" in it all French and sexy...*swoon*


7) Your current favourite pic of Jemaine or Bret. Please post and share

There is a reason why my top ten photos of Bret is not finished. I can't make these kinds of decisions.
Oh here's one I like a lot because it is equal parts sexy and hilarious.
Image


8 ) Do you resemble Mel in any way shape or form?

:lol: It might be easier (and certainly quicker) to tell you ways in which I don't resemble Mel. :worry: I'm totally travelling 12 hours by plane to a foreign country to see FotC perform a concert that I've already seen. Mel never did that. :P


9) We adore you, but we really wish you...........

I really wish they would have made one more season of the HBO series. :|


10) Thongs. Underwear or footwear?

I say thongs are both footwear and underwear. But, I get yelled at for borrowing my daughter's thongs. They panic and make me call them flip-flops.


11) Favourite Conchord quote? From TV/radio show or someplace else.

:hrm: Oh, there are so many good ones. One of my faves... "You don't just talk about it man, you talk about it a LOT."


12) Your most prized piece of Conchords merch? (share a pic if you have one)

It's not merchandise, but this is my favorite Conchord thing.
Image

I have a signed shirt, and signed posters too. :heart: The guys are so generous with their time.
Image

And these are still on my fridge. :lol: I don't rearrange them so much anymore.
Image


13) Who has more pics of Jemaine - SheWolf or Mockingbird. Discuss.

I have no idea. I would like to know, though. :lol: C'mon girls, tell us! The combined photo collection of these two lovely ladies would certainly be a sight to behold. The combined up close and personal experiences with Jemaine are pretty mind blowing as well. :prayer: And with the mad photoshopping skills that these dear friends posess, who knows what various, exotic "photos" exist in thier private collections. :twisted:


14) On the upcoming European tour what are you hoping to see most?

Bret naked in my hotel room. :whistle:

Seriously, Bret (and Jemaine) from the front row. :shock: Or at least close. I had crap seats at the concert I attended, and pretty much watched the whole thing on the big screens. :? I hope we see lots of our friends getting awesome meet and greet stories and pics. :hug:


15) Following on from #14, what do you want to see least?

If the guys seem annoyed or bothered by the audience. And I really don't want to see the back of some huge guy's head blocking my view! :evil:


16) What's your favourite other project outside of the Conchords. Either Bret or Jemaine or both.

Bret's music. Whether with the WIUO, The Black Seeds, or his Video Kid album :heart: ...I can't get enough of his stuff.


17) Dinner with the Conchords. What would you cook?

Eggs for Bret and anything for Jemaine. :wink: Probably something Italian. My homemade pasta is a crowd pleaser. I love to cook and you're all invited over for Sunday pasta anytime you find yourself in Iowa.


18) Best Conchord moment ever.

Meet and greet. Chicago. Hugging Bret :oops: and talking to him. :heart:


19) Have you ever dressed as a Conchord or anything related to them for Halloween (or other party).

No. :lol: I do have a couple of subtle "Bret" shirts that I wear. I also helped my daughter make a robot head, but I've never worn it. :hrmpf:


20) Have you ever attempted to spin a wheelbarrow or worn a white tracksuit with red stripes while out in public.

I've done a bit of the CCTV boogie on the bike trail. Got a few strange looks. :lol: Why did you put this in my head? Now I have an almost irresistable urge to borrow the neighbor's wheelbarrow, and maybe check ebay for that tracksuit.

1) First time you stumbled into the Conchords? Not literally :p Was it the TV show, on the radio, a pic somewhere....
I was in NZ working at a small hostel on the South Island. The family's oldest son had the first season on dvd and since there's not much on NZ tv, I decided to watch it and I was hooked. Would stay up late after work while most of the guests were asleep and watch a couple of episodes. Me and this one English guy that had stayed with us a few days watched the whole season in like 3 days.

2) Who did you think was hotter based on that first impression?
Jemaine

3) Has this opinion now changed? If so, divulge why
I started loving Bret more after learning about all of his side projects. Now I just love both of them.

4) Chops or no chops.
No chops. Never been a fan of the chops.

5) Beard or no beard.
Beard for Bret. Either way for Jemaine.

6) Favourite Conchords song to date? Any particular reason?
Jenny. I think will always be one of my favorites. I really love any of the story songs.

8 ) Do you resemble Mel in any way shape or form?
God, I hope not. :lol:

9) We adore you, but we really wish you...........
consider doing another tour of the US sometime. Anytime would do, really. I still want a chance to see you perform live.

10) Thongs. Underwear or footwear?
Underwear

11) Favourite Conchord quote? From TV/radio show or someplace else.
It doesn't matter what country someone's from, or what they look like, or the color of their skin. It doesn't matter what they smell like, or that they spell words slightly differently some would say more correctly. I'm a person. Bret's a person. You're a person. That person over there is a person. And each person deserves to be treated like a person.

12) Your most prized piece of Conchords merch? (share a pic if you have one)
I actually don't have a lot of Conchords merchandise, but I guess it would be the first album because I bought right before I left NZ.

13) Who has more pics of Jemaine - SheWolf or Mockingbird. Discuss.
I have no idea, but I imagine both of their collections are extensive.

14) On the upcoming European tour what are you hoping to see most?
More dancing during Sugalumps. ;)

15) Following on from #14, what do you want to see least?
Nothing, I want to see as much as I can since I'm not going to a show.

16) What's your favourite other project outside of the Conchords. Either Bret or Jemaine or both.
WIUO for Bret and E vs S for Jemaine.

17) Dinner with the Conchords. What would you cook?
I don't cook, so we would head to the nearest Mexican restaurant and I would try my best to get them drunk on margaritas.

18) Best Conchord moment ever.
On the show one of my favorites was when they were talking about what the Aussie accent sounded like: "Kind of like an evil version of our accent." :lol:

19) Have you ever dressed as a Conchord or anything related to them for Halloween (or other party).
Can't say that I have...

20) Have you ever attempted to spin a wheelbarrow or worn a white tracksuit with red stripes while out in public.
Nope.

1) First time you stumbled into the Conchords? Not literally :p Was it the TV show, on the radio, a pic somewhere....
My hubby showed me Ladies of the World and Albi clips on youtube. If he only knew what he was getting himself into! :lol:

2) Who did you think was hotter based on that first impression?
Bret. I thought he was beautiful.

3) Has this opinion now changed? If so, divulge why :)
I still think Bret is beautiful, however with every word that came out of Jemaine's mouth he just became hotter and more lustworthy. He stirs something in me that Bret just doesn't.

4) Chops or no chops.
Either/or

5) Beard or no beard.
Bret definitely beard. Jemaine I'll take anyway I can get him but I prefer beard.

6) Favourite Conchords song to date? Any particular reason?
Tough one. I'd say Hotties. It's an enigma. :lol:

7) Your current favourite pic of Jemaine or Bret. Please post and share :)

8 ) Do you resemble Mel in any way shape or form?
Who me? :whistle:

9) We adore you, but we really wish you...........
would write, produce, and star in that rock opera that Bret mentioned once.

10) Thongs. Underwear or footwear?
Footwear

11) Favourite Conchord quote? From TV/radio show or someplace else.
"It's a psychological analogy." Every word that came out of Dave's mouth was gold IMO.

12) Your most prized piece of Conchords merch? (share a pic if you have one)
Don't have much other than their CDs and S1 and S2 DVDs. Perhaps something cool will find it's way back from Europe for me.

13) Who has more pics of Jemaine - SheWolf or Mockingbird. Discuss.
Hmmm. I'd probably guess SheWolf although I think I could give them both a run for their money. :wink:

14) On the upcoming European tour what are you hoping to see most?
A new song or two

15) Following on from #14, what do you want to see least?
Any one in the audience screaming "Free Bird!" Hopefully this is a lame tradition relegated only to the US.

16) What's your favourite other project outside of the Conchords. Either Bret or Jemaine or both.
Eagle vs Shark. WIUO.

17) Dinner with the Conchords. What would you cook?
Scrambled eggs for Bret and anything for Jemaine. :P Really, probably Mexican food. I make darn good fajitas and of course fish tacos!

18) Best Conchord moment ever.
Impossible to pinpoint. However the moment that hooked me was in the pilot. When they're in the elevator and Eugene makes Jemaine try the new faucet and Jemaine says "It doesn't work." It was all down hill from there for me. :D

19) Have you ever dressed as a Conchord or anything related to them for Halloween (or other party).
Not yet

20) Have you ever attempted to spin a wheelbarrow or worn a white tracksuit with red stripes while out in public.
Not to my knowledge.

Okay, this took me way too long. :lol:

1) First time you stumbled into the Conchords? Not literally :p Was it the TV show, on the radio, a pic somewhere....

It was spring of 2007... I was at my brother's during Stanley Cup playoffs and we were killing time waiting for the game to start. He said he needed to show me this awesome show... I was like "okay!" because I love awesome shows. At the time we could only get it on Demand up here in Canadia so the first episode he showed me was Yoko and by the time we were half way through "If You're Into It" I was hooked! I went home that night and downloaded the entire first season and never looked back. My brother often teases me "remember that time I introduced you to Flight of the Conchords and changed your life?" :lol: :lol: :lol:

2) Who did you think was hotter based on that first impression?

I didn't think either of them were necessarily hot at first, just cute... Jemaine was the more stylish one so he caught my eye right away... plus he's tall and dark and I love that. It wasn't until I got to "know" him (so like 3 episodes or so later) that I found him tall, dark AND handsome though. It was actually his singing voice in "Business Time" that made me look at him in a completely different light. ;)

3) Has this opinion now changed? If so, divulge why :)

Still the same only now I think he's the sweetest, sexiest, most adorable and kindest man on the planet. My love and admiration grows daily. :heart:

4) Chops or no chops.

Either or, they don't bother me.

5) Beard or no beard.

Either or but there is just something about scruffy Kiwis that makes me Image

6) Favourite Conchords song to date? Any particular reason?

Oh man, ugh... hmmm... lemme think... :hrm: Bret, You've Got It Going On (sorry Bret!), Inner City Pressure, Jenny, Angels (live), Nothin' Wrong, We're Both In Love With A Sexy Lady, Stana, Business Time (I will never tire of teh six)... I should just stop really, since this is becoming a list and you asked for "song" not plural. :lol:

7) Your current favourite pic of Jemaine or Bret. Please post and share :)

Current favourite Jemaine pic:
Image
His hair. Image

Always favourite Bret pic:
Image
Naughty!Bret does things to me that usually only Jemaine does.

8 ) Do you resemble Mel in any way shape or form?

Bret said it best... Maybe. :lol: No really though, I think I know where to draw the line. :nod:

9) We adore you, but we really wish you...........

Wouldn't always be so mysterious.

10) Thongs. Underwear or footwear?

Both. :D

11) Favourite Conchord quote? From TV/radio show or someplace else.

Oh god. Ummm the ones that I use on a regular basis in my every day life are... "yis", "ligs", "Hey, I'm walkin' here!", "Maybe", "Oh" (Bret in New Fans when he peaks out of the bathroom "window" only to discover there's no escape), "There there...theretheretheretherethere" ... k stopping now.

12) Your most prized piece of Conchords merch? (share a pic if you have one)

:heart: :heart: :heart:

13) Who has more pics of Jemaine - SheWolf or Mockingbird. Discuss.

I'm gonna say SheWolf. :wink:

14) On the upcoming European tour what are you hoping to see most?

A new song or songs.

15) Following on from #14, what do you want to see least?

Can't say there's anything I don't wanna see that I've already seen. :D

16) What's your favourite other project outside of the Conchords. Either Bret or Jemaine or both.

Eagle vs. Shark, Humourbeasts, WIUO.

17) Dinner with the Conchords. What would you cook?

Baked goods for Jemaine and..... I have no idea for Bret and I hate to say scrambled eggs again. :lol:

18) Best Conchord moment ever.

Hmmmmmm for me... seeing, hearing, experiencing, just being at Red Rocks last year. Image

19) Have you ever dressed as a Conchord or anything related to them for Halloween (or other party).

Never.

20) Have you ever attempted to spin a wheelbarrow or worn a white tracksuit with red stripes while out in public.

:whistle:
