As a (somewhat) new person to WTF I am looking forward to maybe having time to read through all the threads, explore the site, review the photos, find an avatar that I love...

There are so many hilarius conversations that have gone on here. I find it most entertaining.

I won't even let myself open the thread where you all have put the best youtube vids. YET. I'm holding it back as a reward, as soon as I get some work done.

I think my concert euphoria has finally begun to wear off. :( Whew, what a ride.

In that vein I'd like to thank Sherry and everyone else behind the scenes at WTF because without you I wouldn't have had dates for the NYC and Cali shows. It was because of this board that I was able to make RL friends with Nancy, Bibli, Sully and Amanda & I certainly never would have considered a trip to the final shows had I not known that I'd have some travel buddies along for the ride. It was also nice to see Claire and halokiti in NYC and Whambi and 4everconchordsfan in Berkeley.

Tour highlights for me would be RADIO CITY - I'm so glad I overcame my prejudice about seeing them at this venue and snagged a fairly decent seat 2 days before the show at face value. It was easily the best performance I've seen this year both musically and vibe wise. Highlights from that night would be Jemaine at the drums for Demon Woman (his voice was insane) and the standing, lights up version of Sellotape.

Philly holds a spot in my heart for:

1. Second row seats (I really felt like I was part of the show there and it's always nice to get some Jemaine eye contact. :wink:)
2. The first appearance of disco ball codpieces.
3. Epileptic dog & Prosititute
4. The meet & greet - and having Jemaine as my snuggle buddy for a far too brief moment in time. :)

Well the guys are back in NZ it would seem :)

I guess they headed home asap once they were done with the tour.

As sad as it is that they're not in North America anymore, I'm really happy for them both. They deserve some down time with their families back home, and I'm glad they're getting that :D

North America will miss you Bret and Jem!!

Glad they're home....I hope Bret's ok.

Thanks to them both for an awesome tour and I hope they enjoyed themselves enough that they want to do it again sometime. :hug:

That's great that they're home again. They deserve a break. Just looking at their tour schedule made me feel tired for them. Maybe after they catch up with people at home, they can get a vacation somewhere where no one has ever even heard of FOTC, so they can be just normal people for a while.

Great to know they're back home and hopefully having a well deserved break. That reminds me of a tweet I saw yesterday which raised a smile:

gotta love NZ: bret from flight of conchords just at the local dairy .. being politely ignored by everyone

Awww, that made me smile too, Venus :D
I was kind of worried about them going back to NZ and being ambushed by fans wherever they went. Nice to know that at least some people are doing the right thing.

Ha! :D


edit: oh, and I've got to remember that "dairy" means corner store over there, doesn't it?
I had this crazy mental image for a second of Bret being surrounded by cows getting milked and the dairy farmers ignoring him :roll2:
