Flight of the Conchords - David Bowie

Hi, are any of you fans of David Bowie? What about the series 'Flight of the Conchords'.

If the answer is yes to both of those questions, you should love this extract!

Please make sure to rate it and leave comments both on Penny Arcade and YouTube. Thanks, tell me what you think of it!

My favourite quote begins at 0: 56: "Hey Bowie, d'you have one really funky sequin spacesuit or d'you have several ch. ch. changeees?

Lyrics: Bowie's in space Bowie's in space What you doing out there, man? That's pretty freaky, Bowie Isn't it cold out in space, Bowie? Do you want to borrow my jumper, Bowie?
Does the space cold make your nipples go pointy, Bowie?
Do you use your pointy nipples as telescopic antennae to transmit data back to Earth?
Bet you do, you freaky old bastard you
Hey Bowie, do you have one really funky sequined space suit?
Or do you have several ch-changes?
Do you smoke grass out in space, Bowie?
Or do they smoke Astroturf?
Receiving transmission from David Bowie's nipple antennae
Do you read me, Lieutenant Bowie?
This is Bowie to Bowie
Do you hear me out there, man?
This is Bowie back to Bowie
I read you loud and clear, man
Ooh yeah, man!
Your signal's weak on my radar screen
How far out are you, man?
I'm pretty far out
That's pretty far out, man
Ooh- ah- ooh!
I'm orbiting Pluto
Ooh- ah- ooh!
Drawn in by its groovitational
(Groovitational pull)
I'm jamming out with the Mick Jagger-nauts
Ooh, and they think it's pretty cool
Are you okay, Bowie?
What was that sound?
I don't know, man
Ooh, it's the craziest scene
Yeah, I'm picking it up on my LSD screen
Can you see the stratosphere ringing?
To the choir of Afronauts singing
Bowie's in space
Bowie's in space
Bowie Bowie Bowie Bowie Bowie Bowie
Bowie's in space
Bowie Bowie Bowie Bowie Bowie Bowie
Phasers on funky
Ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-ba-Bowie's in Space

P.S: Many of you will have seen this before as it was aired a long, long time ago, but I was reminded of it wen the new series was shown in England recently.

    I... hm... so like, did you join in 2007, with the intention to be the Flight of the Concords street-team two years later? I mean, yeah that's funny and I like the show but, you're doing this wrong I think.

    And here I thought David Bowie was all tied up with the Guild of Calamitous Intent.

    Edit: No seriously, what the fuck did I just watch?

    We had a thread recently about FotC. And I posted about 90% of the videos, both from the TV show and their live appearances, in it. This thread is unnecessary. Especially since this video was probably posted in it too.

    The libertarian response to anything is, "Sure, that works fine in practice, but it doesn't fly in theory."

    I know, but Wesker looks and sounds far more awesome than Chris! (As in his voice sounds far more awesome.)

    To Jasoco: I was unaware of that, but still, you said 'had'...

    And to Kid Presentable: I only really made an account to rate and comment on videos, I just really like tis video.

    I'm still pretty upset about missing them when they came to campus. I couldn't make it there in time :(

    MC Chris and Flight of the Conchords in the same week. It would have been the best.

    Ripped From The Headlines is now complete. Now that the first quarter rush is upon us, those would-have-been-holiday titles are wailing and beating on the window to be let in. We shall indulge them.

    A good portion of my self-identity is tied up in the fact that I play games, particularly games on personal computers, which I recognize is somewhat strange but I'm hoping that this is the sort of audience which will readily accept such declarations. I can usually survive a family gathering outside of the healing radius projected by my machine (designation "Featureless"), but seated where I am now, hands directly on it, the bonuses to INT and CON are incalculable.

    I could go on like this for a very long time but the truth is that something happened to my machine and the experience has been utterly paralytic. At random intervals - in any piece of software, at the desktop, wherever - blasts of sharp static fire from the headphones into my mind. This hellborne sound has a number of odd characteristics, the most noteworthy being that it is literally nauseating to hear it. I believe that there are police crowd control devices which produce a similar effect, though I would imagine that they are usually not worn directly on the head.

    I can imagine an experiment by which one would break a person of their lifelong affection for computers, and it would be exactly like this in every way. I've been up most of the night trying to square this thing away, because we're talking about Domination, Freedom Force, and Republic Commando all basically this week. If you've got any ideas, and I hope that you do, please drop me a line at this dummy gmail account. My DxDiag dump is right here, if you're curious. I feel like the static is a physical thing by this point, an organism, waiting and then leaping.

    (CW)TB out.

    truly a sight for sore eyes
