Flight of the Conchords. Yeah those guys. Feel free to discuss them here! Garfunkling!

I really enjoyed your character in the BBC2 Radio Show. Are you like Brian Nesbitt at all?
No Amaria, that was a character I was acting.
So although I may look and indeed sound the same as Brian, he definitely doesn't have the same gift for language and thought like what I can. I as a person am very switched on and I always get places unlike Brian who means well but never gets to the point. I guess what I'm trying to say is that whilst Brian rambles on and never really understands things I however keep to the point and manage not to confuse the situation I see myself finding. As the whole show was improvised, everything you heard just came out of what we were thinking at the time. So yes I tend to ramble on...but Brett and Jemaine don't talk much, so I had to or there'd be a lot of dead air. By the way we sometimes did 10 or 12 takes on some of those scenes and there was a hell of a lot of hilarious stuff that didn't make the cut. I reckon we recorded enough dialogue to make another whole 6 episodes.
I also asked as to whether we could release a seperate episode entitled 'Brians Best Bits' which would be a compilation of my funniest lines and moments. Jemaine promised me this would come to fruition but as yet I have not received this 'extra episode'.
I have also hinted at a 'Brian' spin off series...
Do you still eat pies?
I'm sick to death of pies...and they nearly spelt the end of our band!
Who won the raffle?
You'll be pleased to know Trevor won the raffle and in doing so won a fair share of his own bull back! It wasn't that he was lucky.
He was the only one who entered the raffle on that particular night. It wasn't a very busy night. (it was my UK slides evening)
Has being the birthplace of the infamous Conchords made the Taranaki Tavern a major New Zealand tourist attraction?
Yes it has!
We are one of the most popular tourist attractions in Taranaki. Fourth only to Mt. Taranaki (Lord of the Rings) Elmwood regional Park (Lord of the Rings)
and Trevor Davies Award winning Bull (now deceased, but was in Lord of the Rings)

I took a flute lesson for about five minutes so I can make that â€œtoot-tootâ€ sound with a bottle. Though if I do that for too long I get a little light-headed. I do like to sing, but Iâ€™m terribly shy and I suffer from stage fright, so Iâ€™ll have to stand behind the curtain during a performance. You can introduce me and Iâ€™ll just tug on the curtain a bit to let people know Iâ€™m there.
Andria wrote:Perfect! I get to have the stage all to myself. That would be...okay. You could play all your rad instruments from behind the curtain and have the audience try and guess what they are. I think the "air harpsichord" might be difficult for them, but we could give it a try.
I used to play the bottle once long ago. *sigh* But I had to stop. Like the oboe, if you play the bottle for too long you are at risk for a brain aneurysm. Those were the days. Back then I could also flick the top of an aluminum soda can and tweak the pull tab. My good friend and I had a little jam group. We had a falling out, unfortunately. Her brother broke the tab off my can - it just wasn't the same after that.
Ellen wrote:Oh, thatâ€™s heartbreaking, I can totally relate. Itâ€™s just like my dream of playing the pepper mill that was thwarted by a severe allergic reaction to pepper. I was completely crushed. Iâ€™m so glad we decided to form this bandâ€¦weâ€™ve got to make a go of it! Maybe I can find some hypoallergenic pepper. With Brian managing, we canâ€™t lose -- if heâ€™ll consider us, that is. Do you think he would mind helping us sweep up all the pepper at the end of our ggig? Itâ€™s a lot easier to clean up than potatoes.
Deirdre wrote:There are just too many scenes to quote. I will just say BRAVO to everything that came from Rhys Darby via Brian.
I do hope they can all work together again as these characters. Six episodes is not enough. Now what am I going to do?
Andria wrote:Oh! Horrible, I feel your pain. How do you feel about playing a sea salt grinder? Doesn't have as much personality as pepper, but it can be quite soothing.
I hope Brian will consider giving us a go. We could send him an 8 track of our work. We need to start having Band Meetings! Get things done. When we should get together to practice and compose our tunes, etc.
If Brian takes us on, I think he would probably be willing to clean up the pepper/salt. We could get him a little vacuum for Christmas that he could use. Might make it a bit more exciting, give him some stories to tell back home. I'm quite sure he would have a problem with pies, however. Probably cause a nervious breakdown.
Ellen wrote:A salt grinder, brilliant! Definitely doable. I found one on eBay. Itâ€™s a little pricey, 99Â¢, but I think I can swing it. Anything in the name of art. Hmmâ€¦Band Meetings, good point. Weâ€™ll need a manager to call them to order (we canâ€™t manage ourselves). We should probably appoint someone to serve as our interim band manager, at least until we can get our 8-track to Brian. We also might want consider starting a new thread somewhere since we are slouching towards off-topicness. And, in deference to Brian, we must never, ever utter the p word (I don't mean potatoes or pepper). If we have to mention them, we should always refer to them ass.
