In between my exciting schedule of not-studying (OMG WHY AM I NOT DONE YET, DAMN YOU U OF O), sleeping for obscene amounts of time each day, eating my weight in sandwiches (dunno, I've had a bizarre number of sandwiches these last few days) and hanging out with Lisa and Tania for the first time in eons, I have been watching Flight of the Conchords, season 2.

WHY IS THIS SHOW SO AMAZING? Every time I see an episode I think I've found a new favourite song, and then I watch the next episode and I change my mind.

But I haven't seen the last episode yet, so



I rest my case.

Also, [livejournal.com profile] wild_sibyl/[livejournal.com profile] hysteriagalore, Bret has worn velvet suits/jackets at least twice this season.

U of O-- is that Oregon as in the ducks?

HEE. Alas, no. Though in retrospect it does seem like it could be quite a common abbreviation.

I kind of wish, though, ducks might actually be cooler than my school's mascot.

Ha, that's okay. Nothing is cooler than my undergrad's mascot which was a beer stein. not even kidding. :-)

Wow that IS amazing.

We're Gee-Gees, and if you ask most people they will go "I think it's a horse". Technically it's the first horse out of the gate, but why they couldn't at least choose a cooler word like "stallion" or something is beyond me. Our rival school actually has a song that includes the line "what the fuck's a gee-gee?"

OH BRET AND JEMAINE. I love them and that song is hilarious.

I love them as well. I saw season 1 a while ago but never got around to watching season 2 until the last couple of days, and it is amazing. And also increasing my love tenfold.

I don't have a FOTC icon. I may consider rectifying this.

What, what's that? You're busy being stressed about your exam tomorrow?

SORRY, CAN'T HEAR YOU OVER MY JOY OF BEING FREE. :D

HDU

Actually "stressed about exams" is not really a state I've ever been in. I am incredibly laid-back about these things, one day I am sure it will bite me in the ass.

But tomorrow probably won't be that day.

I actually miss school. I am really weird and possibly from another planet.

WE ARE HANGING OUT STILL, Y/Y? I NEED SOME DOCTOR WHO FANGIRLSQUEE.

You could write my exam for me. Academic fraud is fun for everyone, and there's lots of LATIN so you'll feel right at home.

I THINK SO I got confused as to whether or not you meant morning or evening. Evening works better for me because tomorrow morning I plan to cram, as per usual. (Though despite what it looks like I actually have studied already today. AND YESTERDAY. This is very bizarre for me.)

Hahahahaha. I contemplated getting out of bed tomorrow in time for a MORNING meet-up and AM STILL LAUGHING.

After your exam? WE CAN GO CELEBRATE. And hopefully freak out more people with the combined force of our squee. I'm hoping we actually cause someone to go into shock.

From: [identity profile] http://users.livejournal.com/_thirty2flavors/
Oh totally. But you had mentioned you had a meeting or whatever so I was like "...does she mean the MORNING?" and I was a little horrified as well.

YES. My exam officially runs from 2-5 but I doubt it'll take me three hours. Maybe 2? I dunno, I can just text you when I'm done I suppose.

Is there a Milestones downtown? Because if so, tomorrow they have some random promotion where if two people go for dinner you only pay for one meal. We can be a couple, I'm down with that.

Haha. My meeting is at 3:30, so the timing should be perfect.

IT DOES HAVE A MILESTONES. I THINK.

This seems like an awesome special. I approve.

AND THAT IS WHY I LURV HIM (and want to have his velvet clad babies)(but not really because I'm afraid of babies).

On a completely different subject I've started compiling a list of how many hairstyles Zack Morris had during his years on Saved By the Bell. I'm going to make a pie chart.

To be fair he only trades in his typical animal sweaters for velvet when it is music video time, but STILL. VELVET.

Omg you must keep me updated on these statistics.

Flight of the Conchords = ♥ I love those boys - way to represent my homeland, guys :D Just when I think I can't love them enough, they win me over again and again. I recommend their 'mockumenary' that they did for NZ TV a few years ago pre-HBO series when they go to Texas to take part in a music festival: Flight of the Conchords - A Texan Odyssey. It is hilarious.

Ooo I do love me some mockumentaries, I'll have to see if I can find it online.

I uploaded it to [livejournal.com profile] conchords_hbo the other day - you have to join the community though, but definitely worth it in my opinion. I watched the first part on Youtube and was annoyed to notice that the other parts didn't exist!

OMG AWESOME I JUST DOWNLOADED AND WATCHED IT TYVM

It was pretty hilarious. I especially enjoy their reactions to creepy fans.

You're welcome! I'm all about spreading the Conchord love at the moment! Plus it is nice to see the boys act relatively like themselves :) The scary fan lady with the lips was especially hilarious. I love how Bret shamelessly just loses it and Jemaine really just doesn't know how to react. ♥

It IS nice to see them act like themselves, or close enough.

Oh man you've gotta wonder about some people. For one thing I like to imagine that if by some bizarre twist of fate I did meet any celebrity I admired, I wouldn't automatically make them think of a restraining order. And then there's the issue of "even if you carry a picture of Jemaine's lips in your purse, WHY WOULD YOU SHOW JEMAINE?"

But it was still hilarious.

Haha, for definite. More like big giant neon signs pointing and saying "LOOK AT ME AND HOW CREEPY AND STALKER-LIKE I AM". I don't thinK I could ever do that. I've met a few famous people ("met" as in "hung around stage doors, etc") but I wouldn't be showing them pictures of themselves that I carry around (not that I do) or being there like... everyday or something. WHUT.

VELVET!!! I wonder if it'll start spreading to other "approved by celebrities"-garments soon?
I really need to start watching flight of the conchords don't I? I'm really liking everything I've seen so far.

Also I love how you're implying that Kristen and I are the same person, hah.

I'm pretty sure Bret was wearing velvet to be ironic, because both times were during music video scenes (during the actual show he always wears a sweater with an animal on it), BUT STILL.

Omg you have to watch it, it's so great. You can get season two from [livejournal.com profile] conchords_hbo, I just started downloading my favourites and they'r really high quality and stuff. You have to join the comm though.

You can also stream but it's harder.

Yes I am very eager for someone I know to watch this show with me. The only other person I knw well was my friend's boyfriend, but then they broke up.

I'm kind of thinking anyone who wears Velvet outfits has to do it with a little bit of irony.

Ooh fantastic. I think I will watch it.

OMG HOW INCONSIDERATE OF HER/HIM TO BREAK UP WITH HIM BEFORE THE SPECIALS HAVE AIRED.

From: [identity profile] http://users.livejournal.com/_thirty2flavors/
This is probably true.

I haven't seen all of season 1 I don't think btu you don't really need to. Plus what I like about season 2 is they wrote the songs for the show, not the show for the songs.

I KNOW! Haha. I mean FOTC though.

Somehow my fever induced brain made me think what I wrote as a comment to your other post was YOUR reply to my FOTC-comment? YEAH... IDK EITHER: D:

B-Bu-But I had two windows open, side by side, and it made perfect sense at the time.
