Shutting down

Hey everyone, it's been quite a while since I've last updated this blog. I've always wanted to come back to this blog to update you all on FOTC news, but since there hasn't been much going on in the past couple years, it's been tough finding news. Life has taken over and I just don't have the time for it, or the patience.

I am shutting down Folk You. I want to thank everyone who viewed the blog and helped with the design. It was great fun running the blog and writing about the Conchords. But It's time to shut down. There's many sites out there that get the news faster and keep it current. I suggest going to the Flight of the Conchords fan forum located here: http://fotcmb.com/ You can find all the current news there. I will keep the blog up for those who want to read over past posts though.

I may come back to this blog in the future, maybe make it an all purpose blog for other tv shows. Maybe even movies, gaming, art, music, etc. But at the moment; I have no interest in writing blogs. I had a great time with this blog. I met some interesting people when running the blog, some people who worked with the Conchords and many fans.

Anyways, have a good one!

Flight of the Conchords new song for Charity

Sorry for the long hiatus, and I think I'll continue to update the blog when I can, anyways I'm back with some awesome news. Flight of the Conchords have finally released a new song, and it's much more serious than comedic, well it is still pretty comedic. It's called Feel Inside (And Stuff Like That) and it's for Red Nose Day an annual charity event in many countries. I honestly don't know any of the guest singers, but there are a lot of them. The video also has Bret and Jemaine interviewing children, and we get what seems like a nice short Flight of the Conchords episode in the beginning of the video.

Anyways check it out below.

Hey guys, it's been quite a while since I updated the blog and I doubt I'll be able to update it anytime soon. Well lets just get right down to business. I'm looking for FotC fans who're interested in working on the blog. I know there's been some news about the guys, but I just haven't had the time to post. If you're interested and would like to be a part of the blog, just shoot me an e-mail here:

Please in the subject line put "FotC" so I know who it is. Thanks!

I only need a couple people, would rock to have a New Zealand fan or two up in here.

Bret McKenzie wins Oscar for best Original song

Well it was great news when Bret McKenzie was nominated for an Oscar, and it was pretty awesome to see one half of the Flight of the Conchords win that Oscar. Bret McKenzie won his first ever nomination. I watched the whole show to see it, and I might add that this moment was the most fun during the show, especially with Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis presenting the award. The rest of the show was a waste though.

Anyways I'll keep it short. Congrats Bret McKenzie, it was well deserved.

And sorry for posting this late, I was going to post it the night of, but been far too busy as of late.

And the Oscar nomination goes to... Bret McKenzie!

Bret McKenzie has been nominated for Best Original Song Academy Award for The Muppets track "Man or Muppet". Can you believe it?

CONGRATULATIONS BRET!

He's got only one contestant to defeat, "Real in Rio" from Rio (Jemaine voiced Nigel, the bad cocatoo in it). Luckily, Jem didn't write this song, so the boys don't stand against each other.

I so hope Bret wins!
