Help! Help! I'm being repressed!

I enjoy all of your MP quotes, Andria!


Another MP fan! Yay! Yes, I am a fan of Monty Python, but how could you not be...???

The more the merrier!

And I definitely like the idea of sponsors!

You could get the Discovery Channel to sponsor you! Tell them you are off to witness the elusive "Flight of the Conchords" in their natural habitat. Offer to film the entire trip for them. It might be the only reality tv I would ever watch! :lol:

Classic! I think I shall email them right now...The Flight of the Conchords in their native New Zealand. Wowza, I'd watch it for sure. :roll: :wink: Anyone know how to operate a film camera? Err, and have a camera?

I don't have a real video camera, but surely that year of film and tv production in high school must have had some purpose! I'm sure I could manage a video camera!

The more I think about it, the more the humorous possibilities for such a documentary strike me. It's truly a brilliant idea. Steve Irwin (yes, I know he's Australian) meets Eddie Izzard, anyone?

Unfortunately Laura, no one of the Conchord variety. :( Of course they would be in the US when I'm not. I'll have to dig up some more pics and share. I was there for 3 months, so I have plenty.

Doing the world's first bungy jump off of the Kawarau Bridge. Video's kinda crappy, but you get the idea of what was going on.

Wow. You couldn't pay me enough.

Now, I know you filmed this but....did you bungee?? :shock:

I'm looking forward to pics and stories- NZ is beautiful and seeing pics taken by someone who can tell us what they're seeing is always preferable to Googling! :)

That was me in the video. It was probably my favorite thing I did while I was over there. Well, that and Zorbing which is probably the stupidest thing I did. Fun, but very weird. :rolleyes:
