When you met him did you find it cool to hear that voice in person? I did. And I remember how deep and manly
I did...it was quite soothing. And he laughed at something...I don't remember what, but it was sooo much better than I could have ever imagined!
In person Bret's voice is the one I found very soothing.
Jemaine did the dorky laugh with me. It's the same one he does in the EVS outtake where Taika is in the closet. It's SO dorky and so brilliant.
That dorky laugh is just the best. It makes me giddy!
Bret's was good too. He was totally happy and kinda giggly. Jemaine was much more serious and sweet. Bret was much easier to talk to, but I think that was I wasn't all flustered and mushy brained.
I think Bret is
easier to talk to just by nature of his personality. He was quite bubbly and chatty when I saw him. He seemed energized by the attention and treated fans as if they were his long lost friends.
Jemaine is not that way, which doesn't make him not friendly, just different. I think few people are as effervescent as Bret. Jemaine's personality intrigues me because I got a hint of it but not much. I think he was just really
dry. Like he made a breast comment to my friend & it was so totally deadpan that it took a few seconds for any of us to realize what he said. And when we did we were
I got a sweet vibe from both of them which I wasn't expecting. In Philly Jemaine just magically appeared in front of me looking at me sweetly, not saying anything. It was just kind of implied like Hi I'm here what do you want me to do? I thought that was very nice. He seemed a bit vulnerable to me.
Nancy, what were your impressions of their personalities? (I could talk about this kind of stuff all day).
How about all night??? Okay,here goes: *Remembering each moment with sheer bliss*
I have to say that it still shocks me that they stuck around to say hi to all of us - even the 25-30 of us who waited at the wrong door! All of a sudden they locked the door I was standing near from the inside, and in slo-mo I saw people looking, then hurrying to the other stage door. I figured that I had blown it, and I wouldn't even get to see them, and then poof, there they were, saying hi and being so friendly, right in front of us. I got closest to Bret first, and I said hi, and thanks for making the world a much happier place, and shook his hand, and he said Well thank you, I love your shirt, I have one like it. (It was the sweatshirt he wore in the HBO One Night Stand special) I said yes I know, and then went on to talk about my daughter planning to see them in LA, and he said That should be a great show, cause it's a great place, and I said my daughter had seen Rhys there, and he said, I think Rhys was at the......(I don't remember the place
).Then this girl who I had met before the show (Christine or Christina) asked me if I'd take her picture with Bret and I did - it was an old Polaroid camera, and I actually took a pretty good picture! I said my goodbyes to Bret by telling him I thought I was their oldest fan, he laughed and then we parted. When I saw Jemaine, the first thing he said was I love your shirt! I said thanks, and then the same thing about thanks for making the world a happier place, and he was very gracious. I also told him I was their oldest fan and that's when he said It'll be our secret!
Then I spoke for a few minutes with Todd Berry and Sara Silverman, and it looked as though they were getting ready to leave, and as I went over to say goodbye I noticed Jemaine's sneaker was untied. So the Mom in me came through, and I said Jemaine, your shoe's untied, be careful, you might fall. (I don't think he tied it before getting in the cab, not special car, cab!)
Then I told him if he needed a backup singer, I'd love to do it, and he said So you're the one to call? And of course I said yis. Then a father of two young teenage boys said Thank you so much for coming out and meeting everybody, it really meant a lot to these kids. And Jemaine was just so gracious.
And then I heard one of the assistants tell Todd and Sara the name of the hotel where they were going to meet and have a drink, and for one brief second I thought about stalking, but then I decided that wasn't cool, so I went home.
I found them to be kind of extensions of their stage personas - as you've said, Bret was very personable and charismatic, and Jemaine was quieter but dry. I thought they were very special to speak to us all, and I truly will never forget that voice saying words to ME!!!!
