Call me by my rap name, Rhyme-nocerous


Thanks Nikol! I love Flight of the Conchords!
I'm only halfway through season 1, meaning, I only had disc 1 from Netflix. So far, my fave episode is the mugging. Murray is especially funny in that one too....when they make a missing persons report at the police station, and the cop asks if he talks like a robot...and Murray says "yeah, that's his New Zealand accent". Hilarious!
So many throwaway little jokes. I want to be the Rhyme-nocerous and you can be the HipHop-potamus. Okay?

That's right! I'm the HipHopopotamus! My Lyrics are bottomless!

I'm so glad you like it. I have their CD, too. I'm happy to share. My favorite song of theirs is Business Time. Have you seen that episode? I died laughing. There's also this song from Season 2 (not on DVD until August) that's called Sugalumps. It gets stuck in my head all the time.

All these bitches checkin' out my britches
I put them in a trance when I wear track pants!
My dungarees make them hungry
They're over the moon when I don pantaloons!

Business Time is my fave song too! Is that the same one Bret starts singing when he falls for his sign holding coworker, Coco? Cause I remember cracking up at that one, I just can't remember if they are one and the same. It starts out with him saying how hot she is??

NIKOL said...

No, the one Bret sings about Coco (She's so hot. She's so hot she's making me sexist. Bitch.) is called "Boom." I think Business Time might be on the second disc. It's when Jemaine gets back with Sally briefly.

I could seriously just sit here quoting the show all day. But I'm trying to restrain myself. Next time we get together, we can geek out about it.

This is one of those shows that everyone raves about, but I have never seen!

Kris said...

Ok, so Boom & Business Time are my faves. You know, I don't have an ipod yet, so if you ever felt the need to make me another mix cd, I wouldn't complain. Just sayin'.

Basically, all the ones where they talk about hooking up with girls are hilarious. Cause I love the one about being the most beautiful girl (in the room) and If You're Into It. Bet I'd love Sugalumps too.

NIKOL said...

Kristina: believe the hype.

Kris: you could be a part time model. But you probably should keep your normal job.

Kris said...

And you are the most beautiful girl on the street. Depending on the street. You'd be at least one of the three most beautiful.

NIKOL said...

And what about that song where Bret says he's not crying? "I've been chopping onions! I'm making a lasagna....for one."

Kristina P. said...

Hey, did you get my comment about the earrings? Did you touch base with Ann?

Karen said...

I just CAN'T add another show to my Netflix queue right now! But I'll keep this in mind.
