dear sherry and forum members,
yay I'm so glad that I found "my people" on this forum.
i am so obsessed with what bret and jemaine have created with FOTC. never before in my life have i ever felt so attached to 'stars'. i guess its cuz they are so different and fresh compared to old versions of stardom.
i'm also a musician and since being exposed to the flight of the conchords i've started
writing my own pop comedy songs, as the persona "part time model".
its really fun, i have 5 songs finished now, that i am performing around town in halifax to much laughter and applause!
i wrote them from the perspective of if there was a real 'part time model' girl like the one jemaine sings about, and what sorts of everyday issues and problems she would encounter. the song titles are:
'my stalker and me'
'did it hurt.. when i just biked by?'
'any length for me'
'the conditions of love'
part of the reason i'm coming on this forum is that i am really curious whether you think that jemaine and bret would mind that i am doing this spin off act. i've started recording demos of the songs, and i'm going to start working with a producer fairly soon (to add techno beats and get some dance remixes happening).. but i want to make sure that the commun is cool with the idea of me using the 'part time model' moniker before i go too far with promotion. obvs it would be nice to ask jemaine and bret directly but they are likely unavailable..
i was in austin for sxsw last week, and i heard todd barry give a stand up, and then later he was hanging out in the lobby and i truly wanted to ask him opinion but was shy.. dammit! (todd barry on the very odd chance that you are reading this forum post i was the smiley girl who said 'amazing' to you, heh).
i have two of the part time model songs up at a myspace page /parttimemodelthat
anyways. that is my story!
LOOK FORWARD TO MUCH CONVERSATION WITH YOU ALL!
