They really did need security!! Then he ran to the side seats, which were TOTALLY EMPTY and started humping a seat, saying "There are normally more people at our shows."

Voted! And I'm sure that getting to meet Taika not once but twice this year was an honorable mention for Most Enviable Meet & Greet Photo with a Conchord Cohort. What are we, chopped liver?! :lol:

Only joking.

Thank you all for your votes so far! :thumb:

Oh no vmh, you deserved a mention with that photo with Taika! Maybe it's because people were thinking of M&G encounters with Cohorts during the tour? Anyway, I'm certainly envious of that photo. ;)

edit: Haha, I just checked my own rules and I specified that photos have to be M&G photos during the tour. Oh well, it's still an enviable photo.

Aw, vmh. That pic is so perfect! 8)

I'm completely stuck on Best Bret moment....how can I ever choose?!?!? :shock: They were all amazing. So many of the categories I've narrowed down to two (with great difficulty) and I just can't pick between them. :heart: :heartbeat: :heart: Oh well, it's an honor for the selections that don't win just to be nominated...right? :)

Thanks for all the links to everything, Venus! Woot, girl. :clap: You made this so slick and easy for us! :supz:


:roll2: Who nominated me for Biggest Tour Tragedy??? :lol: ...................... ( :tears: )

Wait what? :o Two pics of me were nominated? I'm totally surprised! Who new such an honor could result from a few glasses of wine and Nonch always ready with her camera. :D

Some of these categories are so tough. I don't know how I'll choose, but the deliberation will be fun.

Thanks for putting all of this together, Venus! You're a peach!

I need more time - so many tough choices! :hrm:

I didn’t participate so it wasn’t me but it was a tragedy of epic proportion, wasn't it?

My pic nomination was the result of the same. :D

I have only skimmed the categories so far but re: #24 we can’t really be expected to choose right? The photo of J with kipples is one of my faves but how can any Jemainiac be expected to vote against his big, delicious sugalumps?

We don’t have to vote in every category, right?

My heart says so. :| But no one need feel sorry for me, some of the most devoted fans didn't even get to see a show. :cry: Some have never had the Conchords in their country even. :cry: That's tragic. :goodman:
