This is a great discussion topic. Group hugs to everyone here â€“ you are all nice to â€˜knowâ€™ and I enjoy coming here to see whatâ€™s up with everyone.
To be honest, Iâ€™m not sad they are done touring. Iâ€™m happy for them. Iâ€™m happy it went well and they were safe and sound throughout the tour. Happy they got to perform to thousands of people, old fans and now new fans. Happy to see their smiles and genuine laughter during the shows via pics and vids. It must be a kick and a half to be on stage with that kind of show. Iâ€™m happy theyâ€™re obviously surrounded by good people who take care of stuff for them, the fun and not so fun stuff, while theyâ€™re on the road. Happy to never classify them as traditional, snobbish, celebs. Happy to brag that theyâ€™re just sincere, polite guys who are ridiculously funny and talented musicians, who seem to enjoy sharing their music and humor with us. How lucky were we, eh? And Iâ€™m really happy they get to go home now, or to wherever theyâ€™re headed, to have a much deserved sleep and maybe watch a DVD.
Thanks to my daughter for the day she said, â€œ..hey mom, check out these guys on Youtubeâ€¦this one is Jemaine and thatâ€™s Bret and Jemaine wrote this song for Bret called â€˜Bret You Got It Goin Onâ€™â€¦and itâ€™s hilarious!â€ This opened up a floodgate of FOTCness into our lives and I couldnâ€™t be happierâ€¦.
Thanks to Google for directing me to this forum when I first typed in FOTC. No, really. I couldâ€™ve clicked on any one of the listings shown, but thru kismet, fate, karmaâ€¦I clicked on this one. Sooooo happy I didâ€¦
Thanks to Sherry & her WTF team for what they do for us here. This place doesnâ€™t magically maintain itself. It takes copious amounts of her time to keep it up and running, organized and classyâ€¦.and to keep us informed on all the latest Conchord news. Bravo, Sherryâ€¦..
Thanks to Kelly(southpaw) for the heads up on the presale and password for show 2 in Detroit. Because of her, I was at the ready the moment tickets went on sale. This resulted in the score of a lifetimeâ€“front row seats. Both shows were phenomenal and it was great meeting Kelly, Laura & Michael as well. What a memorable night as evident in all our pics and recaps. Itâ€™s been hard to have a bad day when I just think back to that nightâ€¦always brings a smile to my face.
Thanks to the promoters/tour manager for suggesting Detroit as a gig on the tour. Detroitâ€¦.really? Yeah, ok. And then we got TWO shows?!?! Wow. At the Fox Theatre, no less. I hope J & B enjoyed themselves that night as much as we all did and I thank them for bringing such fun and laughs to our miserable little city. It was a great â€œsomethingâ€ to look forward toâ€¦.
Thanks to my computer for not spontaneously combusting from all the pics, articles, vids, etc., of Bret & Jemaine that I have collected.
Thanks to my husband and daughters for sharing all of this. Real life leaves no time for a busy family to actually sit down together and chill and have fun. Each Sunday nightâ€¦we did that. All of us. May not sound like much to anyone else but to us, it was a blast to watch the newest episode together. And when we all went to both Detroit showsâ€¦..I couldnâ€™t have been happier. To see my daughters' faces during the performances and when they got to meet J & Bâ€¦.? No words can describe it.
Thanks to the inventor of digital video recording. Until Season 2 comes out on dvd, this delightful little technology has come in quite handy when a FOTC fix is needed.
Thanks to all of YOU. Continued 'welcome' the new people hereâ€¦.itâ€™s a great place. And to the regulars, thanks for all your laughs, recaps, pics, vids, hints, updates, helpfulness and experiencesâ€¦..the fact that we are all fans of the Conchords is the big, delicious gob of icing on the fun cake.
Finally, thanks to Bret and Jemaine. You're a couple of cool cats who play a mean guitar and make people smile. I really dig that. Enjoy the ride.
...Detroit - City of Tomorrow...
take this sinking boat and point it home..we've still got time...
