New Zealand

I haven’t been here in a while. I’d apologize, but there are like 2 of you out there, so I’m not worried about it. Anyways, here are a few things…

I just watched the first episode of Flight of the Conchords. I’m really glad that my roommate Sara has HBO. It’s OMG-hilarious, and I don’t use three letter internet acronyms lightly. In fact, I never use them, so this is serious business. It’s a really strange show about two guys, in a band, from New Zealand, who live in New York City and are trying to make it, sort of. But mostly just about strange interactions between them and the world and between the two of them. It also has musical sequences that are actually funny. It made me laugh out loud a lot, which TV rarely does. Right, enough about that. Watch it if you get a chance.

One of the two guys in the show also made a movie recently, Eagle vs. Shark, that I managed to catch a sneak preview of. It’s pretty funny, but very strange. I recommend the show over the movie, but it’s worth seeing.

    Ack! I didn’t know there was a show! Now I want HBO. I saw their live performance on….something. I think I just saw it online somewhere. I laughed so hard. I like their hip-hop – when one of them calls himself “Rhymenosaurus” and the other one is “Hip-hopapotamus.”

    Now that you mentioned it I went looking. There are lots of clips on youtube… This one is great!
