It was a lovely night in Berkeley I've been told...you probably could
have heard them.
vestedinterest wrote:As for the myspaceing, I just asked Jemaine a bunch of random questions. His favorite tea is green tea, he and Bret took a bunch of clothes from the FOTC set but don't wear them because he's afraid people will think "ew, he's poor now" or "ew, he's trying to get recognised." He said growing up with mixed ethnicities made him feel like a "racism spy" and I certainly identify with that, being of mixed races myself.
Aw cool! Thanks for sharing that. He's just so naturally funny isn't he? The clothes from the show are pretty iconic.
I can almost imagine him wanting to wear the denim snap up...but no...
...what would people think?....
Very interesting as well about the 'racism spy' comment as well. Is that like those awkward moments when a conversation turns to a sensitive area and you don't know whether to speak up right away or see if the group will aright itself? I don't experience racism, (except sometimes in Europe)
but I've certainly been in that position over beliefs/opinions that I hold dear. I like imagining Jemaine as a spy...he's probably not able to be terribly covert anymore tho. Pretty much burned his 'cover' on the HBO show.
It's obvious that his ethnic background is not an issue to him... but yeah, you can't just go around preemptively blurting out things that may not be obvious.
Nice selection of questions! They are so good to the fans.

Which I should've known, but I had been so excited that I didn't really think about it at the time. Boo /shame/
We all have faith that they will return to the stage.
And I can't wait for the day that they update the website with new Tour details!
Bret has suggested they may tour New Zealand sometime this year. Who knows, they could make California part of Australasia! After all, it was a snap to make the west coast part of the UK.

Oops. I didn't pay attention that you asked for video.
Maybe someone knows of it? I'd like to see it as well if you discover it.
Did you get to see them live? I would die if I saw Jemaine in his ridiculous short shorts or Bret in a tiger glitter leotard... Also, what is your favorite photo of the duo?
I may have seen them once or twice.
Hmmm I don't really remember...
Yes, you really do think you will die...but somehow you survive...the spandex and the amazing music...Bret and Jemaine and Nigel RIGHT THERE...the dancing!...sugalumps being thrust about...and the banter! oh the banter!
They sound so fantastic live, the old favorites and the new songs. You really mustn't miss it if/when they return.
Favorite photo is a tough one.
I'm at work, but I'll try to post something tomorrow.
Which one is your favorite?
