Conchords Take Flight Into Space Oddity

Did you guys watch this past episode of Flight of the Conchords? The Bowie dream sequences were brilliant. Here they are for those of you without HBO, make sure to watch the last one with the Bowie music video parody/homage:







Also, I posted some Bowie covers a while back, but since we're on the topic again, here are some more for your listening pleasure:

"Oh! You Pretty Things" - Harvey Danger (David Bowie cover) [buy album]
"Five Years (live)" - Placebo (David Bowie cover)
"Cat People (Putting Out The Fire)" - Gosling (David Bowie cover) [buy album]

Let me know what you think and how you are doing. Is mom doing well? Leave a comment!

The clips were...odd? For lack of a better word, definitely odd. lol Bracing for hotter temperatures in New York...rather, planning my exit to the Jersey Shore momentarily.

Have a good hump day tomorrow!

Flight of the Conchords is definitely hilarious. I don't have HBO, but I've watched Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenocerous at least five times on Youtube. Thanks for the clips!

Currently: daydreaming about moving to LA to try to be a TV writer... but I have to get out of grad school, first.

I had watched some of the live performances of FotC's songs and wasn't sure how they were going to incorporate Bowie into an episode, but it worked...sort of.
I wonder if they asked Bowie to appear in it?
Have you heard/seen them play Jenny? That one is pretty awesome.
And I'm shitty, but thank you for asking.

Hey Sonny!

My fav moments were the "dream" scenes from the last episode. But my favorite song of theirs to date though has to be "Think About It"---Great lyrics...great expressions! Just plain freaking awesome, I'm totally a groupie now.

I was just pimping those clips via Myspace bulletins, naturally. Thank God there's something to watch this summer. I miss my TV time, sunlight be damned.

Totally unrelated to your post, but did you hear The Whitest Kids U' Know are moving from Fuse to IFC for their second season? This means longer, commercial-free eps, and it will now be uncensored. No more bleeps and blurs! Exciting stuff. And I thank you for introducing me to the show in the first place.

Here's the post from their blog: http://whitestkids.com/main/?p=189

Ooh, I love FOTC. I love the song about the girl who's so hot she "could be a model...but only a part time model". Haha. As far as Bowie covers go, all the hip kids are listening to Of Montreal's cover of Suffergette City. CAN YOU HANDLE THE INDIE CRED? :D
