I have to agree with Sherry on this one. I put him in the same category as Keanu Reeves. Nice house, nobody home. In fact, my cronies and I refer to Keanu as "Kununu" and Orlando Bloom as "Orlunu Blununu" (these nicks have had quite an evolution, but were born of the belief that neither one is very smart.) I'm sure he's a very sweet guy, but does about as much for me as, well, licking a shag carpet.

FYI: Shag means something COMPLETELY DIFFERENT here in the states. Gets your British minds out of the gutter!


Ummmm, carpet licking (shag or not) has a different connotation, too. But don't ask me how I know THAT. :shock: :oops: :D

In the poll, I voted for Bret as "Jenny", because he gets so very put out when he is saying "No, it's me. I'm Jenny. MY name is Jenny." and then he's so indignant when he pronounces "We have a child" and gets all peed off with the "I can't believe you don't remember - it was a very difficult process!" :shock:

But the best part, for me, is the very end: "Oh my god, I'm so sorry! Oh, that's terrible! Oh, how embarrassing!" :oops:

Just absolutely classic! And the wholetime, playing his guitar without missing a beat. The man is a musical genius, I say - a musical genius! :D

No arguements here!

I can't help but think of him in some of the HBO songs as sort of like Teller to Penn or James to Bartle -- the somewhat silent yet equally funny partner.

Teller to Penn or James to Bartle


Er...who?

I actually noticed that Bret tends to look at his fingering a lot more than Jermaine, as if he's not quite as confident and familiar with the guitar. So I wonder who started playing guitar first. I know in interviews they state that they started learning together, but I wonder if that's the case as Jermaine just seems more comfortable. Maybe he's just a faster learner though.

I thought I read that Jemaine taught Bret, but I could be wrong. Of course, I've always taken Bret's looking as just his way of filling in the gaps while he's not specifically playing or reacting.

Penn & Teller? Bartles and James (wine cooler guys)? Not familiar with them? At all? Silent partner?

No Bowie, no wine cooler. I was very deprived as a child. :lol:

Did he really? That would explain quite a bit. There's another possible question to ask the guys. Which...remind me to send in mine! Time is running out and I still haven't thought of any.

:lol: I didn't mean now, silly.

And I'm sure they aren't seeing as of this moment, I really can't think of anything other than, "Chicken or the egg?" :lol:

He is so good at all of them. I love how he does Jenny. Bowie is great.
Right now I'm very fond of "Petrov, Yeleyena & Me". I start chuckling just think, thinking about it.
