Keeping it light....

As promised yesterday...a lighter, kinder post for you all. Now with an easy to swallow, gelatin coating! Mmm, mmm, good!

Last Friday, I went to see Flight of the Conchords at the Orpheum in Downtown LA with Ro and Sara. If you haven't had the pleasure of hearing or watching these two lovable Kiwis perform, allow me to introduce you. They are a musical/comedy duo from New Zealand, and the world (or maybe just their fan base) is currently awaiting the arrival of the 2nd season of their HBO show. To give you all a little sample, this is one of my favorite songs of theirs. They are clearly VERY serious musicians.

And you know what? They ARE right...there ain't no party like my Nana's tea party. After the show, we waited out by the back door for the guys to come out, in the hopes of getting a couple pictures with them. We waited FOREVER, all the while being berated by a TOOL of a security guard that actually threatened to shoot us if we crossed his imaginary line of death. I think everyone pretty much laughed at him, which I'm sure just made him madder. Is a group of 30 laid back(mostly female) FOTC fans really that much of a threat to warrant GUNFIRE? I thought this was Los Angeles, not Baghdad. We decided we needed to take a break from verbal abuse of the gestapo security guard. It was freezing, and we were starving (and a cold, hungry Jen is NEVER a good thing), so we made a trek down to a taco stand to kill some time, avoid getting shot, and fill our bellies. But we still waited a while after we returned...it was about 1:30 by the time Bret emerged to say hi to everyone. No sign of Jemaine, but that's ok...it was still definitely worth the wait in a dark alley with our lives being lamely threatened. Here's a couple pictures from when we got to meet Bret.

Holy crap, it's Bret! He's totally adorable. After meeting him, I'm officially a Bretrosexual.

It was so nice of him to stand out there that late at night to sign autographs and take pictures with EVERY person out there. He really IS the mutha flippin'....

This was Ro, Sara, and I waiting in the back alley in Downtown LA at 1am. Yeah, totally safe.
