What am I going to do now?

Disaster. “Flight of the Conchords” has finished… *bawls*

The one shining light in the gloom of an otherwise entirely mediocre Tuesday evening.

“What?” I hear you say.

You mean, you’ve never heard of New Zealand’s fourth most popular dig-folk paradists?  You know – Jermaine Clement and Bret McKenzie?

Still none the wiser? What have you been doing?

Here’s a few tasters then. I hope you enjoy them. It’s either sort of stuff you either like or you don’t. (It’s a bit fatuous to say that I suppose, since that’s the case with all comedy.)

Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros (from 8dkid on youtube)

(I think this was from the episode where they were mugged for their camera phone which was literally an oldish mobile phone taped to an oldish camera.)

Possibly my favourite – The David Bowie Song (from theguyotc on youtube)

Or perhaps some of their “Stand up”. This is Jenny:(from asianscoin on youtube)

Enjoy. I do hope you do.

Lyrics for Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros from whatthefolk.net

I’m the mother flippin’ Rhymenocerous
My beats are fat and the birds are on my back
And I’m horny
I’m horny
If you choose to proceed you will indeed concede
Cos I hit you with my flow
The Wild Rhino Stampede.
I’m not just wild, I’m trained,
I was raised by a rapper and rhino that dated
And subsequently procreated
That’s how it goes
Here’s the Hiphopopotamus
The hip hop hippo
They call me the Hiphopopotamus
My lyrics are bottomless
They call me the Hiphopopotamus
Flows that glow like phosphorous
Poppin’ off the top of this esophagus
Rockin’ this metropolis
I’m not a large water-dwelling mammal
Where did you get that preposterous hypothesis?
Did Steve tell you that, perchance?
My rhymes and records they don’t get played
Because my records and rhymes they don’t get made
And if you rap like me you don’t get paid
And if you roll like me you don’t get laid.
My rhymes are so potent that in this small segment
I made all of the ladies in the area pregnant
Yes, sometimes my lyrics are sexist
But you lovely bitches and hoes should know I’m trying to correct this.
Other rappers dis me
Say my rhymes are sissy.
Why? Why? Why?
Why exactly?
What? Why?
Be more constructive with your feedback, please. Why?
Why, because I rap about reality?
Like me and my grandma drinking a cup of tea?
There ain’t no party like my nanna’s tea party.
Hey! Ho!
I’m the motherflippin’
I’m the motherflippin’
I’m the motherflippin’
Who’s the motherflippin?
I’m the motherflippin’
I’m the motherflippin’
I’m the motherflippin’

    Hi there Tina. *waves* Nice to see you here!
    The Conchords are cool. Daft but cool. Well…they are in my opinion anyway.
