A real person behind @JemaineC and it's NOT Jemaine Clement

Sorry if I get too emotional in this post, but one of the things that get on my nerves are people who try to get attention pretending to be someone they really aren't and getting away with it when they manage to cheat thousands of people. One of the meanest kinds of this is impersonating a famous person.
If you follow @JemaineC on Twitter, be aware that the person who tweets from this account has no connection with real Jemaine Clement (maybe she saw him on the streets of NYC, that's all) and she doesn't even talk with New Zealand accent.
Yes, SHE. Her name is Patricia and this is what she wrote on her website,

Shhh...since October 2009, I've been tweeting as Jemaine Clement. I decided to take the wheel after discovering a Twitter absence from my number one all-time favorite show, The Flight of the Conchords.

My following has grown to over 3,000 people, gaining more and more each day.

Today, she has over 10 thousand followers which suprises me, since the account is not verified and @fotc IS!
I hope, when real Jemaine finds out about it, he will do something with the impersonator. It has happened before with some fake Jemaines on MySpace and after he made a complaint, the fake accounts were removed.

Try to invent someone else, girl, and stop making fools out of Jemaine's fans!

Inspired by Flight of the Conchords posters

New Zealand ... ROCKS!!!!

I got an e-mail from Tarmo Annus about his Flight of the Conchords inspired pictures. They're all inspired by the New Zealand posters in Murray's office during the show.

Bret to star as an elf in 'The Hobbit'

Source - Variety

According to Variety, Bret will be starring in The Hobbit as an Elf named Lindir. I've never read the Hobbit, so I'm unsure if he's a main character or not. Lets hope so. Here's the article by the way:

"Flight of the Conchords" star Bret McKenzie has joined the cast of "The Hobbit," which began shooting March 21. McKenzie, who made brief appearances as an extra in the first and third "Lord of the Rings" pics, is playing Lindir, an Elf of Rivendell.
More to come ...
