Flight

Whilst my inspiration is returning, sadly my time is not . . time flies as they say and I am unprepared for Theme Thursday! I'll have to start writing these earlier in the week!

I was going to talk about the time I nearly crash landed on a flight from Copenhagen or that I have a bigger fear of flying than Otin or post some pretty pictures of birds or go into a diatribe about wishing I was more flighty or tell you about heli-musters on huge outback stations . . . but that will have to wait.

So for your comedic enjoyment . . another clip from my favourite comedians at the moment . . .Flight of the Conchords. Two New Zealanders who seem to have made it 'small' on the American Market . . .They're not for everyone but I love this laconic humour, not to mention the accent.






Don't forget to visit the other Theme Thursday nutters who have without a shadow of a doubt embraced 'Flight' a little more thoughtfully than me

Are these the ones who describe themselves as New Zealand's fourth best parody band?

Nice to just chill for a while ...without having to worry about job hunting.

Or the flight of refugees all over the world, or flights of stairs, or fight-or-flight, or The Flight of the Bumblebee....

You might have more time if a silly old woman didn't video call from her bed! ;) Great to talk to you.

Baino, saw these on youtube but opted to build a playlist, instead. Still a great take :)

Happy TT!

They did not renew their contract with HBo i love them and have never missed an episode and many over and over. Bret got married,. Jemaine has a little half Greek baby and they went on tour leaving me broken hearted They are so like monty Python and the real greats..At the Emmys they played the clip where Jemaine says ."I was better looking that day"They kill me.!!

I'm so glad you *didn't* blog about flight; flying terrifies me even though I have to do it about four times a year. Yikes.

A post about being more 'flighty' is something to look forward to however!

Thanks for sorting this out for me. I keep hearing about this "Flight of the Conchords", but had no idea what it was - fancied it something between Thunderbirds and a Sit-com.
Loved that "We couldn't have kids, so we imagined them." Fun stuff.

Tsup*!* I listened to them last summer over the radio ... can Neil Finn save the day? Too funny*!*

Ronda Laveen said...

Those boys are so funny and I've never heard of them. A flight of fancy, Baino.

I love the idea of imaginary children. I think maybe I'll apply for an imaginary job... where you don't have to do anything, but they send you money anyway. Works for me. Thanks for the introduction to Flight of the Conchords!

Otin said...

I don't fear flying, I just fear not being on the ground! :)

laughingwolf said...

too late for me, my three are nowhere near imaginary :(

Candie Bracci said...

I'm not afraid or flying,I'm more afraid of the cars myself.Have a nice day!:)

River said...
