This just in from those fine folk at Arovideo:
It is our pleasure (and absolute thrill) to announce that Arovideo will be playing host to the hottest act in New Zealand (and possibly the world) right now, “Flight of the Conchords”.
In support of the local release of their widely-acclaimed HBO TV show on DVD, Bret and Jemaine will be performing a short set live in store from 10am, Wednesday the 13th of February, at 97 Aro Street in Wellington.
Then from 10.30am until 12pm, they will be signing copies of the DVD, which will be available to buy on site at $39.95 for the 2-disc set.
Space limitations on the ground floor of our store mean this will be a very intimate, exclusive event indeed, and entry will be on a “first come, first served” basis. While we cannot guarantee you will gain entry for the performance itself, their should be ample opportunity to meet the guys, especially if you are armed with a copy of their fantastic DVD! There will be eftpos facilities available, though cash is recommended.
What more do you need to know people!
This ia friendly public service announcement that the object of much lust is the subject of a documentary about his being such an object of lust that screens tomorrow night on Prime at 8.30pm. According to the IMDB entry, Frodo Is Great… Who Is That?!!,
The documentary looks at the rise to celebrity status of NZ actor and musician Bret McKenzie, who appeared for 3 seconds as an extra in "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring", during the Council of Elrond scene. His brief appearance sparked a huge internet fan-base dedicated to his "brooding pout" and "elvish good looks". McKenzie has been dubbed "FIGWIT", an acronym of "Frodo is Great; Who is That!!?"
So that’s probably quite a nice warmup to when Flight of the Conchords finally start screening here on the 17th.
Okay, so there’s enough Flight of the Conchords material from their HBO series making its way onto Youtube now for us to resurrect FotC Wednesday, so, without further ado, here’s “The Most Beautiful Girl in the Room”…
(Lyrics after the break…)
A little late today, still recovering from last night’s bowling…
But worth the wait! The first episode of the Flight of the Conchords’ HBO show is now online for your viewing pleasure.
Wellington’s favourite comedy export aren’t here for the NZ International Comedy Festival (lots of good acts are though, click through for more info), so you’ll just have to make do with our weekly wednesday Flight of the Conchords clip…
“It’s better now.”
It’s Wednesday! Time for some Conchords…
Does the space cold make your nipples go all pointy?
And do you use your pointy nipples as telescopic antenna transmitting data back to Earth?
I bet you do you, you freaky old bastard you,
Do you have one really funky sequinned spacesuit, man?
Or do you have several ch-ch-ch-ch-changes?
Nearly forgot! Flight of the Conchords Wednesday!
“What a hilarious misunderstanding!”
Another Wednesday, another Flight of the Conchords video clip for your enjoyment.
Yeah they call me the Hiphopopotamus,
My lyrics are bottomless…
