I'm a fairly new FotC fan from the Philippines. HBO Asia began showing 'Flight of the Conchords' some years back; I was able to catch a few episodes & thought the guys were funny, but couldn't really focus on the show owing to the demands of further studies. I first really took an interest last year while viewing a 'Lord of the Rings' behind-the-scenes clip (I think) featuring/mentioning Bret, which made me go, "Oh, that's the guy from that show!??!" and led me to the video for "Feel Inside (And Stuff Like That)," and on to their other songs & episodes from the series, and so on and so forth till FotC had firmly claimed their place in my heart.
It seems a blessing that I got to know of them during a prolonged oppressive life situation. For the longest while they were the ones keeping my spirits up. There were times it was hearing their voices (in song, in banter while onstage, in conversation within an episode) that made getting through to the next day worthwhile.
What The Folk! was essential in quenching my initial thirst for FotC info. I'm happy to be able to properly say "Thanks" here. (And I still haven't explored everything yet on the site & the forum!)
It's been great reading your tweets so I'm sure you'll fit in very well here too.
Thanks very much for saying that. I had a terrible sense a while back that my presence on WTF!'s Twitter threads was precluding a certain reaction/engagement, which crystallized my resolve to join the forum & perhaps lessen my Twitter participation, and so remove that possible hindrance.
It's difficult to get FotC stuff here, tangible or otherwise; my main source so far has been the interwebs. The recent goings-on in the extended FotC universe have been wonderfully exciting! And there's more to come, & maybe some of it will reach my part of the world
In short, guys, I'm glad to be here. Happy New Year, all!
(Not the right smiley for the season, just wanted to use it)
