Sweet as! Can't wait!

Although you'd think when they obviously had it already written out for them that they could have spelled Bret's name correctly. :wink:

I don't know sukkie bubba, but I do know sook, which sort of fits in here. If someone is a sook, they're behaving a bit like a baby or a wuss.

i've had the most fun perusing this radio new zealand site, playing back interviews and such with bret and jemaine. currently listening to 'jemaine playing his favourites' when he sits in for another radio host and discusses life thus far (at that time) with the other host. regarding fame, he says his cellphone is ringing a lot, the host asks who'd been calling him and jemaine says, "...i don't know, i don't answer it."

and him talking about his version of "if you're happy and you know it, clap your hands".. priceless!

This news makes me really happy.

I wish I had something more substantial and profound to say, but I don't. It just makes me happy. Unholy love between a man and a machine sounds like absolutely classic Bret territory, and I, for one, am delighted to hear that he's getting back to his robo-pervert roots.


I wish we had a robot smiley that I could use here.

>go to the search bar, type in 'bret mckenzie'
>on the page that comes up, there's 9 results
>just click on the underlined name next to the numbers 1-8....

Ah, yes!! I remember when that aired! Oscar Knightly (Bro' Town) was hosting. He chose some random songs (including Bright Eyes by Simon & Garfunkel. Ha!) and talked about getting paped by the Dom Post. Hilarious! Jemaine was pretty "guarded" though. :lol:

Did you come across the other interview on the Weekly Maori show? One of the hosts went to high school with him and they spend a lot of time reminiscing about school & growing up in Masterton.

(I know I saved the file... I should have another listen)

Sherry, I have the mp3 of the Oscar Kightly interview.
PM me and I can send it to you.
The other show, I have a link only. I THINK. I will take a look when I get back.

ALSO:

US CST people, Sukkie Bubbas starts in about 15 minutes.
I have to go run errands, but I'm putting it out there for those who can listen.

Here is a link to a list of Conchords stuff. Jemaine's interview is on the second page towards the bottom.

I'll try to grab the Sukkie Bubba show if anyone misses it tonight.
