Flight of the Conchords

I am not what you'd call a trendsetter. I read the Lord of the Rings books after the movies came out. I'm waiting for Lost season 3 to come out on DVD before I watch it. Indeed, I am never even up on the latest news in my own social circles. I never know the gossip. I often say (and I realize this isn't all that funny) that I am so far out of the loop I can't even see the loop.

And yet I might be slightly ahead of the curve right now, because a couple of weeks ago Biffle and I were flipping through the channels and found this:


It was the second episode of Flight of the Conchords! We may have caught this trend early!

I love this song so much that I watch it 2-3 times a day. "Enough small boom, let's boom the boom!"

I also love this video:

If this is, in fact, a very, very old trend, I don't want to know.

ok -- I think I need some context -- so is this a spinal tap kind of deal or is the show all about these videos....

even further (farther?) from the loop than alison.....

I keep seeing ads for this, but alas I have no HBO and could never justify it. Too fancy. However, I did justify getting a tattoo last Thursday. Blogger won't let me post the picture in your comments :(

Dear B, I think that it is actually, "Rhynocerous" and "Rapapottumus" for our clever Kiwis. And Femme Fortis, you are so beautiful, you could be a part-time model. (Jokes from the show of course).

Even better, they're the Rhymenocerous and Hiphopopotamus.

i did discover the error of my spelling after digging into the website for the show - it's even funnier than i first thought! i still don't have HBO, but i might be re-indulging in Netflix not long after the season is over. :)

thanks to Jet and Alison
