Something for the ladies......

Friends have been telling me for a year or so that I should check out Kiwi comedy duo Flight of the Conchords (now with their own series on HB0), but I only just got around to it. What have I been missing?!

The longer version of this, Ladies Of The World - with funny intro of the show-off ladykiller dude who gives the boys the idea that roller-skates might help their chances - is on the SubPop Records YouTube area here, but embedding is disabled, unfortunately.

I don't think I can quite crowbar this one into my 'Great Love Songs' category, but it is a great song...

By the way,there's an extra special end-of-the-month treat over on Froogville today, a collection of half a dozen of my favourite animated short films. Go check it out.

Yay, finally you checked out my kiwi boys! Thanks for putting up Ladies of the World too, it's my favourite song of theirs.

These guys have been around for a long time on the comedy scene back home, and are veterans of the Edinburgh festival. They tried to get the series made in NZ, but were turned down by TVNZ so headed to the US and were lucky enough to be picked up by HBO. There's been two seasons of the show, but I think unfortunately they're not going to make a third.

Also check out the cult kiwi movie Eagle vs Shark which stars Jermaine, and Rhys Darby (Murray) has had small roles in a couple of recent movies (Yes Man and The Boat That Rocked). He's actually the funniest of the three, I think.
