I don't blame your daughter! Taika's so cute at the beginning when he's says, "Say that again?" with his mischievous smile :heart:

Jemaine is helping to raise funds for a LA nursery. You can bid for Jemaine to write and perform a short song and a video of Jemaine performing it will be sent to the highest bidder. :)
Bid here!

Jemaine talks about his favourite hotels around the world

JEMAINE CLEMENT'S FAVOURITE HOTELS
The Flight of the Conchords star and film-maker tells us where tickles his funny bone
words by FRANCESCA BABB

BELMOND COPACABANA PALACE, RIO DE JANEIRO
'The Palace is really old-fashioned, elegant and right on Ipanema Beach. When you walk through the doors, it's like you've stepped back into the 1920s - except for the Wi-Fi, maybe. It's my favourite hotel ever.' http://www.belmond.com. Doubles from about £280

THE BOWERY, NEW YORK
'I had a really small room when I stayed here, but when I visited actors on a higher payscale than me, theirs were huge. The bar looks like it's been there a hundred years, but it's all new, so they've done a really convincing job.' http://www.theboweryhotel.com. Doubles from about £220

CORINTHIA HOTEL, LONDON
'This hotel made me feel really important, and it's very posh. When I'm not working, I tend to stay in grubby apartments that I've found on Airbnb - like I am right now in New York - as I don't spend a lot of money on hotels. But when work's paying for it, I love it.' http://www.corinthia.com. Doubles from £402


PALIHOUSE WEST HOLLYWOOD, LOS ANGELES
'You know what's so good about this place? They have a blender in the kitchen, so you can go to the supermarket, get your fruit and make smoothies, which is pretty LA. If you're in LA, you want to drink smoothies, right? I didn't actually cook anything, but I did make a lot of smoothies.' http://www.palihousewesthollywood.com. Doubles from about £160

POWDERHORN CHATEAU, NEW ZEALAND
'This is beautiful. It's a skiing area with amazing mountains and rivers and trees. It's as New Zealand-y as you get get: if you take photos around there, it just looks like something out of The Hobbit. All the rooms are made from wood and are really comfortable, which is good because all I did when I was sleep.' http://www.powderhorn.co.nz. Doubles from about £115

NO THANKS
'I stayed at the Trump SoHo in New York for four months. One of the Jonas Brothers was there at the same time, and there were a load of photographers outside who kept trying to take photos of me. I was filming Men in Black 3, so I had wild, crazy hair and this huge beard. I just looked like some homeless guy staying at this very fancy hotel.'

This feature was published in Condé Nast Traveller December 2014

Love that he still uses Airbnb when work's not paying for him :)

Some of us may already be familiar with The Bowery. ;) And outside the Trump Soho must have been where that hot chocolate incident happened.

I like that he's so down to earth. Why pay for a hotel if you don't need to,right

Haha yep, I seem to recall a bit of innocent stalking by WTFers at a couple of those hotels. :lol: It's nice to read that The Bowery is one of his favorites. I have some hella nice memories from that one.

Hehe, yes a lot of fun was had at The Bowery! I love how this list can be used by fans who wish to stalk him when he's in town. ;)

:lol: Probably.

I'd like to bump into him sometime in Rio. The Palace looks like heaven and I've never been.

Wow! The personal ditty sold for $2,701. :clap: I wish we could see it. C'mon LyndaKay :stick: That was cool of Jemaine.

I can't help pondering what three things one would send him to include in the ditty. :lol:

:nod: I'd love to know what "LyndaKay" came up with as her three things & watch Jemaine's video. :D Really nice of him to agree to it. They had some other cool items up for auction like a portrait by Michel Gondry. 8)

Thanks, Venus! Some bits can be improved (e.g., left eyebrow, neck, jawline -- it was done late morning/before noon, and the bright sunlight plus the reflectiveness of the laptop monitor rendered the lower portion of the source pic indiscernibly dark) but on the whole I'm happy with it :)

Looks fine to me! I can't draw to save my life so I like to appreciate other fans' artwork. :thumb:
