Bowie to Bowie?

Postby seasick_sarah » Tue Aug 25, 2009 4:30 am

Ummm....hi? I'm Sarah and contrary to my username (a Velvet Underground reference 8) ) I don't actually suffer from any form of motion sickness. :roll: I'm from Melbourne, Australia - but don't hold that against me because my parents are both European-born! Been into FotC only since the second season started Down Under a couple of months back so I have some catching up to do. I'm (clearly!) a Bretero....please can someone tell me if I've been a bit overzealous in my choice of avatar for this forum? :worry:
What else to say...favourite FotC song...too hard to choose, but probably a huge, messy tie between Foux Du Fafa, Bowie, Mermaids, Prince of Parties, Boom, You Don't Have to Be a Prostitute and I Told You I Was Freaky (Freekie?)...

Welcome to the forum Sarah! :wave:

Being a bi-chordian with Bret tendencies, your avatar is one heck of a nice choice if you ask me :wink:

Dad's German, mum's English (from Lancashire). :D I've been lurking whilst waiting for my account to be approved and I see you're in Europe too...where are you from? And how do you become a Conchords fan over there anyways?

Welcome, Sarah! Love your avatar. :D

Have fun getting caught up...there's still so much more to come and so many great people here to experience it with. I'm sure you'll soon be a regular....you might even find yourself wanting to buy a ukulele and join an imaginary orchestra! :shock: :lol:

Ah, I just read that you speak German in the language thread. Cool! And Welsh?? That is special :lol:

I'm from Norway:) They did actually send S1 on telly over here, but I didn't become a proper fan until one of my friends started sending me Youtube clips :D 'Robots' had me hooked :lol: I went through everything there was on YT. After that I downloaded the series (I know..mea culpa, mea culpa... I've bought them both now though, to pay for my sins :wink: ), and the rest is a blur :D

When you put it like that it really does sound a bit crazy :rolls:

But seriously, Sarah; it's good crazy :nod: :rock:

The ukelele is a sadly overlooked and undervalued instrument...I just might go out and buy one...seeing WIUO do Ziggy Stardust (one of my faves) really convinced me.

My poor broadband connection has copped a beating since I got into FotC, let me tell you. :lol: And they're repeating season one at 12:30 am on Mondays at the moment, so I've been setting my alarm for the middle of the night just to watch it, despite having to get up at 5 a.m. the next day.... My sudden, violent addiction is really that serious. (Can't find the season one DVD for the life of me, but I have number two as of last Monday.) :rolleyes: But I should've caught up pretty soon.

Yeah, get the uke, Sarah. Get the funky, funky uke! :rock:

We have no members from the SH yet, so that would be übercool!

Why do you have to get up at 5??

I live 2 hours' public transport travel from my uni, and I live on-campus during the week (no way in hell I'm staying there when I don't have to), but don't have classes on Monday, so Tuesdays I have to get up early, pack my things and get on the train to face another week. :bang: But that awful start-of-another-week depression all but disappears when I go to sleep with the theme tune in my head... :whistle:

Conchords, not Prozac!

(That should SO be my signature...)
