“It’s early Saturday afternoon and you guys are still drinking, aren’t you. You’re just like, ‘I can take off next week to dry up and process everything that happened during SXSW.'” Well no Ben Gibbard, we can’t take this week off — but the rest was true enough.

Few shows come through NYC these days that make us feel guilty for missing ‘em even a week after the fact. So fuck you, Flight Of The Conchords. Everybody loved the two sold out nights at Town Hall.

You can tell the communication tech geeks sitting through Comcast’s presentation at the Consumer Electronics Show don’t quite know what to make of Jemaine and Brett as they stroll out with the guitars and LES-via-New Zealand shtick.

Do The Conchords Fly On YourTube?

Summer TV is killing us — so dire our plight that we’ve actually seen every single John From Cincinnati (after watching the first 20 minutes post Sopranos finale, we swore that’d never happen). Suddenly, that John and his magic trousers are totally engaging, in that anything-to-suppress-these-LOST/Office-reruns blues. ANYWAY, what happened to HBO? We still have… More »
