That's so awesome. Where did he remember you from?

I may have said my name in Vegas when I met him? I was so nervous and I don't remember. But he said he remembered my name and another fan I was with from our Myspace comments and messages. He joked that we go on their website "like everyday!" :lol: I love that he pays so much attention to the fans. :heart: (It was seriously like twice a week or something like that though. :P)

That was pretty great. :thumb: :nod: :thud:


Nice! :D :love:

2) Who did you think was hotter based on that first impression?
As above...Jemaine :D

3) Has this opinion now changed? If so, divulge why

Haha, no.

So true. This and the fact that they are such all around great guys, the musical talent, the sexy accents, all that tall/dark/handsomeness on top of the funny is what has tipped mere admiration into... uh well, obsession. :worry:

Not physically but I do know a lot more about the guys than the average fan. Haven't reached the stalking phase...yet...

How many shows are you going to, Venus? :whistle: :wink:

1) First time you stumbled into the Conchords? Not literally :p Was it the TV show, on the radio, a pic somewhere....

It was in a press article someone sent us from NZ. Saying about they were on their way to the UK in a few months to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe. I saw them without ever having heard anything they had done. O unless you count seeing the Hmmourbeasts performing directly beforehand for an hour. Not even the Folk The World CD was available back then.

2) Who did you think was hotter based on that first impression?

Taika.

3) Has this opinion now changed? If so, divulge why

Nope. His leg tattoo will be forever etched in my memory.

4) Chops or no chops.

Defo no chops.

5) Beard or no beard.

Stubble.

6) Favourite Conchords song to date? Any particular reason?

Bus Drivers Song and Pencils in the Wind. Both amazing live.

7) Your current favourite pic of Jemaine or Bret. Please post and share

I don't have one. I like the older ones.

8 ) Do you resemble Mel in any way shape or form?

I'm breathing. I ovulate. And we share a common gene pool.

9) We adore you, but we really wish you...........

would release a live album and/or DVD compilation. One day.

10) Thongs. Underwear or footwear?

Underwear. If you are a page 3 model who doesn't mind wearing a cheese wire for undies.

11) Favourite Conchord quote? From TV/radio show or someplace else.

"He manages. He just manages"
"You shot it?"

12) Your most prized piece of Conchords merch? (share a pic if you have one)

Its not merch really. It was never a poster that was on sale anywhere. And its not a great pic of it, but its all I can do at this present time.

Image

13) Who has more pics of Jemaine - SheWolf or Mockingbird. Discuss.

I'd say SheWolf but I reckon Mock is catching up.

14) On the upcoming European tour what are you hoping to see most?

Bus Drivers performed live. And Hotties. O and the original version of Mutha'uka's

15) Following on from #14, what do you want to see least?

Anything cringeworthy from the audience.

16) What's your favourite other project outside of the Conchords. Either Bret or Jemaine or both.

I think with Bret its WIUO. Jemaine it's probably his claymation.

17) Dinner with the Conchords. What would you cook?

Probably my big assed chili beef. With jacket potato. Mainly as our spuds taste very different to ones in NZ :lol:

18) Best Conchord moment ever.

I think seeing them on the HBO One Night Stand and the BBC radio show airing. It kind of felt like the icing on the cake for all their hard work in the early years. Meeting them was pretty cool also but in a different way.

19) Have you ever dressed as a Conchord or anything related to them for Halloween (or other party).

Never.

20) Have you ever attempted to spin a wheelbarrow or worn a white tracksuit with red stripes while out in public.

Maybe in my dreams. Or worst nightmares :lol:

:prayer: Sherry wins. Lost her FotC virginity live at Edinburgh. :lol: Was this before or after the night of hair burning and raw pizza? Is there somewhere on the site or the forum that you shared about this concert in detail? You know I have a few questions. :wink: I couldn't find anything with a quick search.

So actually you experienced the Humourbeasts first... Were both gigs of equal importance at the festival? I guess I'm trying to piece together if at this point the guys were involved in different projects, just waiting to see what would take off? Or is it more a display of what they happened to be into at the moment. Were they trying to make a living at it?

Just how much has the band/show changed/improved from that first show you saw? Had they been a 'band' for very long at this point? Is there video of FotC at Edinburgh anywhere? I HAVE SO MANY QUESTIONS! :cross: :worry: sorry.

Taika.

Switzerland. :?

After the raw pizza and before the burning hair iirc.

Nope, never really shared about it. I guess I could if you really want to ask stuff.

Yus, HB were on stage first. So Jemaine had a quick change and came back as a Conchord. I can divulge more if you wish. Although I did talk about some stuff in the HB thread.

Yeah, I felt so thrilled for them. And happy. And proud. And just smiled a lot. The ONS show was truly a great way for so many people to discover them.

I'll see if I can rectify my lack of talking about stuff for you okies :lol:
