Jemaine Clement: Please, Please Don’t Quit “Flight Of The Conchords”

Dear Jemaine,

We heard that you’re not sure you want to do another season of “Flight of the Conchords” because it’s too much work. We totally sympathize but must beg you, please oh pleeease, don’t stop! If we’re forced to go without you and Bret’s sugar lumps, your hilariously witty lyrics, your awesome dance moves and your gorgeous sideburns, we will (probably) give up on TV altogether. Seriously, I’m going through the five stages of grief over this. Keep reading »

Cheatsheet: How To Dress Like Flight Of The Conchords

We couldn’t be more excited about season two (FINALLY) being released on DVD, so we were double stoked to see this rather exhaustive article on The Washington Post‘s Express Night Out regarding the oft-overlooked sartorial brilliance that is Flight of the Conchords. They make a great point: “Sure, the wardrobe on ‘The Tudors’ probably took a bit more effort to create, but Conchords fashion is plenty evocative as well. Looking like a lascivious French royal would be expensive and ridiculous, but impersonating an expatriated New Zealander in a ‘guitar-based digi-bongo a capella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo’ is both achievable and affordable. So true! If you’re as busy as we are on Mondays, you may appreciate that we’ve gone ahead and cut through all the superfluous details. [Express Night Out]

Although it isn’t one of those official holidays recognized by the Post Office and the bank, January 8, 1947, was, in fact, a day that literally rocked our world! While we have no confirmation that Bowie danced himself right out of the womb wearing platform pumps and guyliner, the man we’ve come to know and love has influenced many of his fellow artists. Hit songs like “Rebel Rebel,” “Heroes,” and “Fashion” have stood the test of time, just like his good looks. Damn, the dude still looks slick in a suit at 62! So, to celebrate this special day, we compiled a playlist of bands and musicians who also worship the Thin White Duke, after the jump…

Sweet Release: What’s In And Out The Week Of April 22nd 2008

  • The only thing I want to grab today is Jemaine from Flight of the Conchords (Bret’s bodacious, too). In fact, this duo is probably why girls are born with two hands — FYI, that’s not scientific or anything. As lady luck would have it, they’ve finally released all their funky, sexy songs from their HBO Show as an album, out today! Flight of the Conchords will serenade you with classics like “The Most Beautiful Girl (In the Room)”, or my personal fav, “Business Time”. Mmm hmm. Tonight, I’ll be clutching my pictures of Jemaine and Bret from the Bowie episode at my private listening party. [Amazon.com]
