*sigh* I doubt I can express my thoughts as well as you guys but I shall try..
I have to agree with Fluffy that it starts with talent..many of today's "stars" have done nothing to deserve their accolades. The guys don't just show a glimpse of brilliance, they are literally awash in it. How the two of them found each other to create brilliance squared is beyond me..
Anyway, back to Jemaine..I don't think there is a thing in the world that he couldn't accomplish. Jemaine is an amazing musician, comedian, writer, actor, I mean the list goes on and on..and these are just the things we know about!
As a musician, I compare him to John Lennon (Well, maybe after a couple more dozen albums
) .. the music is beautiful even without the words, the words are clever and funny, a simple turn of phrase could cause you to wet your pants from laughter or feel sentimental about a lost love. Maybe even in the same song!
As comedian, I don't know many who do it better..his face and body are so expressive. A simple wink, a goofy smile, a confused look, Jemaine can do it all..He can make you laugh with just the simplest gesture. We all know how great Jemaine is in this category..I'll move on..
As, a writer, we don't know how much of the lyrics are Bret and how much are Jemaine but let's say 50%.. well, 50% of genius is still genius..I am most amazed by his work in Tongan Ninja, most of his lines are hysterical and I believe most of those lines were adlibbed..
As an actor, even when playing a bad guy, he seems to be able to get into the skin of his character (and this is from one performance that I have seen.) For those who have seen Tongan Ninja think of the scene on the roof when he says to gun man "So you are the infamous gun man" Gun man answers "That's right" Marvin/AF says "I hear you're good with guns" Gun man replies "I'm not just good, I'm the best" and then the kicker, Marvin/action fighter says "Really?, I hear you're good." The face, the posture, the delivery..everything..perfect
Talent..Jemaine has it.
Sincerity, of course we don't know him personally but I believe he has it. Yes, I'm sure he can be moody and cranky and generally a b1tch to be around sometimes but I'm sure he feels bad about it afterwards..(Maybe I'm just talking about me
) From what I've seen on the commentary, he seems very kind and sweet and very aware of other's people's feelings. Who doesn't appreciate that?!
Gee, I've seemed to have gotten carried away. I didn't mean to..Jemaine just does that to me. I wanted to write more and if the opportunity arises I might but right now I have a steak to cook..yum!
Thank goodness Kate didn't ask about his sexiness! I could write pages on that..We would have a 100 page post!
Thanks for indulging me and for asking such a great question,
P.S. Please forgive me if I dropped a word here or there, I tend to do that when I'm excited..My brain works faster than my fingers sometimes..I'm sorry..I'll proofread this later after I've eaten. Thanks everyone.
