Flight of the Conchords

A busy weekend planned, helping friends build a deck...unless we get rained or snowed out. This date's been secured for weeks--weeks!--and it stands to be the last day of the season in which we might actually get snow! Anyway, while I'm documenting the day for a future blog, here's an amusing video that I just happened upon.

This duo billed themselves as "Formerly New Zealand's fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo."

Flight of the Conchords, they call themselves. Hilaaaaaarious, I thought. Who are they? I did a little research...and found out they're pretty darned famous, have their own series on HBO, and are Grammy Award winners.

Where have I been? Seriously, I am so out of the loop.

I have to start watching more TV.

Anyway, I laughed outloud several times during this skit, so there might be something here that makes you smile.

Have a great weekend!


  1. I feel like I must warn you...once you get hooked on Flight of the Conchords, you are hooked for life!! Get the DVD of their show! It will change you forever! Hee hee

    I've been a fan for years and just got tickets to see them live for the first time...I'm so excited I could scream! Yay!

  2. I love Flight of the Conchords. The season is on hiatus right now, but buy or rent the DVDs and catch up. You won't be sorry.


    You don't know HOW many times I've tried to write a big post about those two guys! John and I are completely hooked!

    They have a new audio CD coming out very soon (a matter of weeks, I think?), featuring all of their favorite songs.

    Have you seen the David Bowie episode yet? And the "French song"?

    YIPPEE -- somebody else to talk about the Conchords with!!!!


  4. One more thing...check out this URL, and you'll see two entries about the Conchords written by my officemate Gavin. I especially love the one from the 11th of December.

    " meeting."
