Hey, hi everyone. I'm at work. I have a few minutes to grab lunch and write a few words.

Mock, sorry the site wouldn't open for ya. When I was there last night it did take a bit long to load the pages. It was slooow. It's on island time. :lol: Keep trying!

LauraK, they have only added 2 or 3 songs on the Rio website. At least as far as I know. The last time I visited the site was last night. I have not heard Jemaine's song yet. I like what I've heard so far though. I actually recorded what I heard. Haven't had a chance to upload to youtube or vimeo yet. Will try to do that tonight. My life is crazy town lately.

Nonch& Suzy, I think Nigel def has Jemaine's eyes. :nod:

Hot Wings is a cool song...it started playing after I clicked the American flag. I heard the Sergio Mendes song, Mas Que Nada, too...those 2 seem to be the only ones right now. Click the little musical note at the top right of the page to change songs.

Back in the Stone Age when I was a kid, Sergio Mendes had a hit with Mas Que Nada, so it's nice to know he's still making music. He started out with a group called Brazil '66, and....well.... the group's name kept changing as the years rolled on. :lol:

hahahahahaha oh my goodness, he does the evil voice so well.

that crazy laugh gets me every time. i like how he is able to change his voice in so many ways each time he is onscreen. like that stuffy professor voice he used for gentleman broncos, this one is unique character too.

Love. Love. Love. It's awesome.

I love when he sings in front of his heyday movie poster 'Fly Hard'. Hilarious.

Love the part where he sings "I poop on people & blame it on the seagulls" & the part where he says "SHUT UP", it's just me now".

:rolls: :love: Jemaine. Brilliant as always. :iloveyou: :love: :rolls:

:heart: :love: :heart: How can I watch that and still picture Jemaine instead of Nigel the mean old bird singing?? Easy- 2 yrs later, no less obsessed. :) (Maybe a teensy bit, but not much.)

I love those lyrics- Tom and I both cracked up over the "I poop on people and blame it on seagulls" line- that's my fave! I wonder if he wrote it- such clever lyrics. :) "A South-American Idol.....I'm birdy-licious.....I'm a feathery freak with a beak- a bird murderer! You think you're badder than me? I never heard of ya!" :lol:

Ahaha! I LOVE the laugh - it's totally evil Jemaine! LOL!
Love the line "I was tall... over one foot two!", And the rap is "su-per-delicious"!

I'm betting Jemaine did write it - at least the lyrics, no-one but a Conchord can rhyme like that - I'll have you rotisseried! :lol: I'm also willing to bet that the line "I'll fill your cheese balls with weevils" was originally "I'll fill your cheezels with weevils" (a much a better rhyme!) but it got changed cos no-one would know what a cheezel is - :hrm: I'm right about that aren't I, you guys don't have cheezels (an iconic NZ/OZ snack) do you?

I wasn't wildly keen to see this movie before, but if it's got singing Nigels in it I'll be in the queue! :D :nod: :lol:

Yis :supz: to everything that was said before. Laura, I was totally seeing Jemaine too. Could barely even keep track of what that silly bird was doing. He does have some snake hips too though. :D

Love it. I just want to squee. I'll have to rewatch several times, but have already decided I'm going to limit myself to once a day and draw it out so that each day will bring a new discovery... :chick:

I don't think he wrote it even though the rhymes are very Conchordistic. For a movie like this, they have the budget to hire other people to do this so Jemaine could just arrive at the studio, do his thing, and get paid. No pressure. It even says on IMDB, original music by John Powell.

Anyone want an mp4 video for their iPod? Or maybe just the audio mp3? Yeah, thought so... :wink: Sorry I don't know how to edit the mp3 to get rid of the narrators intro, plus I'm at work so I shouldn't really be doing this anyway! :shock: :lol:
