Season 2 DVD update

The US finally has a release date, and it was under my nose for a while. has season 2 for pre-order right now, and a release date of August 4th, a day after the European release. I'm not too sure if that's the exact release date, since I didn't hear anything else about the US release. Anyways, look forwards to an August 4th release for the US and the 3rd for Europe.

Still no news on the release date for the second CD. If any info comes up, I'll report on it as soon as possible.

In the mean time, pre-order Flight of the Conchords: Season 2 at Amazon.

Some News

It seems as though there isn't much news out there. Still no news on FotC's next album, which I'm waiting for eagerly. There hasn't been a confirmed date for the Season 2 DVD yet for the US, but I haven't been looking around for that info lately. There really isn't much else I have for you all. Bret's birthday is coming soon, June 29 to be exact. So maybe I'll put up a topic to wish him a happy birthday. Yeah it's something similar to the birthday celebration FotC Message Board myspace did last year, which I actually submitted a drawing to, a horribly done drawing, but oh well.

Anyways Rhys Darby now has a facebook page you can go to. Check it out here.

Jemaine's new movie

I got this bit of info after checking out WTF! Jemaine will be starring in
'Careful with that axe', and the movie's based off the novel 'Predicament' by Ronald Hugh Morrieson. The movie is basically a crime caper, set in the mid-1930s.

Here's a bit of the Q&A with director Jason Stutter:

IE: How did you come up with the idea for the film?

Jason: The film is inspired by the song "Careful with that axe, Eugene" written by Pink Floyd. My girl friend wanted to skip it during a road trip and I came up with some spiel about how it was an important piece of music, due to it's important, under current safety message - this blatant lie failed to work.

IE: What films or filmmakers inspire you?

Jason: I love both comedy and suspense equally which may explain why I'm a big fan of the Coen Brother's work and Alfred Hitchcocks film's. I love the showmanship that these filmmaker's bring, they want to entertain their audience and be liked. I also love anything directed by Steven Spielberg.

IE: What is next for you?

Jason: We're currently putting together the finance to shoot a comedy-crime-caper feature film, which has Jemaine Clement from HBO's Flight of the Conchords attached. The New Zealand Film Commission have also funded the writing of a couple of my feature treatments.

Check out the director's Q&A here: AFI Digital Interview

Article on an announcement of the movie, no details on who's starring though:

I'm glad Jemaine is getting more movie deals. Now I want to see Bret do more things in the movie industry as well, would be awesome fun if he starred in a movie.

An update, Season 2 DVD

Hey guys and gals, and whoever views this blog. Sorry for not updating the blog as of late, I've been a bit busy doing other stuff, like purchasing that new Jeff Buckley Grace Around the World DVD set, and just stuff. I also finally purchased Video Kid - Prototype; FotC - Folk The World Tour; and last, but not least; FotC - BBC Radio Show. The $60 or so was totally worth it. There is some news to report on though.

What The Folk! reported on the season 2 DVD here.

Flight of the Conchords, season 2, will be released on August 3rd of this year. That of course is supposed to be the UK release date. I'm currently unsure of the US release date, but look out for the 3rd, just in case.

Also, when season 2 does come out, you can look for the first two seasons in a twin bundle. How cool is that? Both the DVD and twin pack will be released on the same date. That would be the UK date. Just reminding you all again. :)

Some info on the season 2 DVD and the twin pack:
Release Date: 3 August 2009

Anyways, seems pretty decent. 23 minutes of deleted scenes will make me happy, same with the outtakes, and other special features. All we have to wait for now, is the second CD that still has no release date. Ugh!
